I’ve been having great fun back here in Spain, with lots of adventures and days out. Recently we drove into the Alpujarra mountain range and spent a day looking around Lanjaron and then we took the steep windy drive up to O Sel Ling, which translates as ‘Place of the Clear Light.’ It’s a beautiful Tibetan Buddhist Stupa and temple, visited and blessed by His Holiness, the Dalai Lama in 1982. Surrounded by Tibetan prayer flags blowing in the wind, a trip up to O Sel Ling is definitely worth the journey. Your time there will be a period of introspection and self-reflection, chanting inwardly as you walk, and meditating as you sit in various elements of nature, including around a very peaceful, calming pond. You will return from O Sel Ling brimming with blessings and feeling lighter all over… I’ve got a little bit of BIG news to report in this edition of The Sentinella… I’m pregnant! Yes, you read that correctly… in about 6 months we’ll be welcoming a new soul into the world. Although the baby was unplanned my husband and I are seeing it as a massive blessing, sent straight from God. We have a favourite saying that goes like this: “All planning is a defense against God.”

Stop watch Early adopters of the new Apple Watch have found that the device malfunctions when worn by people with wrist tattoos. The issue was first pointed out on Reddit by a tattooed user who complained that his watch would regularly lose connection, and report inaccurate heart rate results. Scores of other users then reported similar issues. Apple Watch requests a security PIN immediately after detecting that it has left an owner's wrist, meaning that those affected are forced to repeatedly enter their code. Darker tattoos appear to cause more problems for the device than light inkings. Apple has not yet commented. Deep Freeze A brazen thief stole a bulky ice cream freezer at a Florida petrol station under the nose of a sleeping cashier. Video of the incident shows the suspect taking almost 15 minutes to heave the cooler away in the Fort Lauderdale suburb of Oakland Park. He struck at 4.09am after walking up to the Chevron convenience store to find the clerk snoozing on the other side of the window. Footage shows him looking closely at the employee for a minute and then into the camera before making an obscene gesture. The sneaky thief examines the cooler from various angles before slowly dragging it away from the wall, so as not to rouse the sleeping cashier. He was later arrested.

Inheritance News From De Cotta Law Intestacy – dying without a valid will By De Cotta Law Valid wills The Spanish notarial system provides more security for those who make a valid will. This is because there is a Central Wills Registry where each notarial will is registered by the notary. The original will is always kept on the Protocol (archive) of the notary where you sign the will. The information at the Central Wills Registry will be the date and place where you made the will; your full name and date of birth and the names of your parents will assist with identifying you. A valid English will must be witnessed by two witnesses who are physically present when you sign. These witnesses should not stand to benefit from your will or be family members. However although wills can be registered in England there is no obligation to do so and most wills are kept at home or with the local solicitor in England who prepared them for you. Leaving Spanish assets in a will It is always advisable to execute a valid Spanish will before a notary if you own Spanish assets. The reason this is important is that property does not generally pass to your surviving spouse automatically in Spain. In the UK you can generally notify the Land Registry, the banks etc to transfer property into your sole name and in some cases where the estate is not of a high value no other formalities are required. If they are an application can be made for Letters of administration on intestacy. This is very different in Spain as the property passes independently to your appointed heirs and there is a procedure required to prove who should receive. Spanish law applies the law of your nationality to your estate. Therefore if you die leaving Spanish assets and have not made a valid will in either country your heirs need to prove firstly the law that should be applied on intestacy and secondly that they are entitled to

inherit. This applies to your spouse even though you may be joint owners of the assets. For some time we have been advising British nationals in Spain that it is wise to state the law you wish to be applied to your estate. While it would be difficult to overturn the application of your national law to your estate in wills made with this clause there will be added certainty in 2015. This is when the European legislation changes to state that you can elect the law to be applied to your succession and that this will be binding. The important thing to remember is that prevention is not only better than cure in this situation it is also less costly than cure.

Beach Fun Things to do on the beach for free this summer!  Go on a scavenger hunt and collect rocks, shells, seaweed, sea glass and sand. Put together a memory jar. Pretend you’re a pirate and hunt for buried treasure. This could be shells, beach glass, or trinkets and treasures left behind by other beach bums. Get some exercise, Mum and Dad! Toss your kids in the air. Dance. Do water aerobics with your tots. Engage in imaginative play. Try cooking, baking, and creating with sand. You’re familiar with mud pies. Try sand pies! Build your child’s vocabulary. Beach vacations are great for exposing toddlers to new words! Identify sail boats, snorkelers and snorkel gear, shells, waves, fish, parasails, airplanes, crabs, seagulls, palm trees, and seaweed. Go on an active adventure. Take a walk, climb on rocks, splash in the waves, jump off sand dunes. Build a moat. Make sand angels. Drink water, use sunscreen, wear a hat, and talk about sun safety. Make a friend. You may find people from different countries and cultures sitting right next to you on the beach. Play “Ring Around the Rosie” in the water. The big splash at the end when you all fall down will likely result in lots of giggles. Take a footprint picture to remember your trip. Draw or write in the sand. Bring a truck or digger and turn your patch of sand into a construction site. Fly a kite. Track and name footprints–birds, crabs, people, dogs. Chase seagulls. Bury someone’s body or feet in the sand.

Play tag or chase. Make a railway line in the sand for your toy trains Look for rocks to paint. Pick up rubbish and keep your beach clean. Throw a frisbee. Roll or toss a ball.

interesting Facts - Hungary is a landlocked country surrounded by seven other central European countries, namely, Slovakia to the north, Ukraine and Romania to the east, Serbia and Croatia to the south, Slovenia to the southwest and Austria to the west.. Hungary was once part of the Celtic world, then the Roman Empire. Following the fall of Rome, the Huns settled in the plains of Pannonia and gave their name to Hungary. Just after WW2, the country came under the communist rule and when it tried to rise against Soviet rule in 1956, the attempt was crushed by the Red Army. The 1986 Hungarian Grand Prix was the first Formula One race to take place behind the Iron Curtain. Hungarians were the inventors of a few amazing things such as the Rubik’s Cube, ball point pens and holography. Hungary has the highest death rate by cancer and highest female suicide rate in Europe.

Top 7 Summer Movies The best films to watch chilling out this summer are: 7. Meatballs - 1979 - Before Stripes, Ghostbusters and Caddyshack, Bill Murray was Head Counselor Tripper Harrison at Camp North Star. As the mentor to young Rudy and other campers, Tripper is an inspiration to the camp, encouraging them to take on their rivals at Camp Mohawk in the annual Olympiad. 6. Stand By Me - 1986 - Based on Stephen King’s story The Body, this classic coming-ofage film follows four boys as they search for the body of a teenager who was hit by a train. Stand By Me captures perfectly the adventures summer brings to adolescents, and brings to viewers a nostalgia that can only be associated with childhood friends. 5. Days of Summer 2009 - Sure, it’s not a film about summer in the classic sense, but Summer plays a pretty huge role in Marc Webb’s beautiful story about Boy Meets Girl. The heartbreakingly realisitic portrayal of true love found and lost is one of the best romantic films (albeit atypical) of the decade.

4. Dazed and Confused 1993 - This film depicts oh-so-accurately the last day of high school, and though it’s set in the 1970s, its events and characters are universal. Seniors hazing freshmen. Nerds trying to be cool at the kegger. Virgins trying to shed their innocence. Matthew McConaughey. Dazed and Confused has it all. 3. Jaws 1975 - Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Peter Benchley’s novel is considered the father of the summer blockbuster. But perhaps the real mastermind of Jaws is composer John Williams, who, with only two notes, managed to instill fear in every audience member. 2. National Lampoon’s Vacation 1983 - Our favourite family man, Clark Griswold, and his family road-trip to an amusement park in California for the great American Vacation. It’s Chevy Chase. It’s funny. Watch it. 1. The Sandlot 1993 - The epitome of summer as a kid—complete with swimming pools, cute lifeguards, s’mores, treehouses, and, of course, baseball—The Sandlot touches on childhood memories of both boys and girls alike.

Gingers to get their own festival - and there'll even be carrot cake!! Flame-haired and freckled they may be, but now redheads are going to have their very own festival to celebrate their distinctive colouring. The event, being held on June 6 and 7 in Highwood, Chicago, is being dubbed Redheads Day Chicago on its Facebook page. It's affiliated to a festival which takes place in the Netherlands called Roodharigendag, and organiser Jim Stoecker, a redhead himself, is saying it's the first American celebration of its kind. He visited Roodharigendag in Breda in the Netherlands in 2012 and was so taken with the festival that when they put a call out for international hosts last year, he jumped at the chance. The festival is set to feature ginger-themed food and drinks, a carrot cake contest and a potential record-breaking photo. "We're going to ask all the redheads to get in-

side for a photo shoot and if it's a beautiful day, who know, maybe we'll beat the world record!" Jim told the Chicago Tribune. He is keen to point out that non-redheads are welcome, and says it's not about showcasing an "oppressed minority group", although only 1-2% of the world's population is ginger. "In Breda, the main show was just us looking at each other. You get a whole lot of redheads in a group and it's like, look at all those shapes and sizes and colours and ages. "It's just creating a place for us to gather and laugh and have a good time." Two redhead events have been held in London dubbed Redhead Days London pubmeets. Make note Bamber!

Known for THE BEST CLIMATE IN EUROPE, Axarquia has some of the best weather conditions in the world. It isn’t any wonder that millions of people visit this beautiful area every year! The Mediterranean sea to the south and sheltered magnificent mountain ranges to the north, Axarquia sits within the Malaga Province of Andalucia. The following pages feature some of the beautiful towns and villages of this superb and picturesque area.

inhabitants 2,000 Level above sea 100 metres Nearest airport Malaga Distance to airport 37 km Distance to beach 14 km

Benamargosa is located in the river valley of the same name some 15 kilometres inland from Velez-Málaga on the costa del Sol and about a half an hour´s drive by motorway from Málaga. The valley is practically evergreen and almost like an oasis in summertime, due to the plantations of avocado and citrus fruits lining the river. The village centre is 90 metres above sea level and the hills rising up along the side of the river reach 550 metres. Thanks to the warm climate of the area, it is possible to achieve more than one harvest. Traditional vineyards are to be found in the hills surrounding the village, growing the famous Málaga grapes used to make the well known sweet wines of the region. The traditional cultivation of olives, almonds and carob is gradually being replaced by the mango.

Please mention The Sentinella when responding to adverts Colmenar it that it was erected by a group of sailors from the Canary Islands who survived a storm and built it to show their gratitude.

Colmenar, the capital of the Montes de Málaga, lies in the most westerly point of the Axarquía, 30 kilometres from Málaga and the coast and 44 klms from VélezMálaga. It is 703 metres above sea level and is part of the Ruta del Aceite y los Montes. Although populated since the Neolithical period Colmenar is one of the younger pueblos as it wasn´t until after the Christian King´s conquest that it was established in the 15th Century and didn´t become an independent township until 1777. Today around 4,000 people live in the village. The name comes from Colmena (Spanish for beehive) after a local honey producing Estate of the same name. Today there is a honey museum in the centre of the town where you can buy delicious honey (my favourite is the orange blossom) and the town’s coat of arms features a haycock with 7 bees buzzing around it. At the top of the village on a hill overlooking the whole area is the magnicent hermitage of La Santisima Virgen de la Candelaria. Built in the 17th century it is consecrated to the patron saint of Colmenar and became a historical local monument on July 4th 1982. Legend has


Lower down in the centre of the town is the 16th century parish church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción with its Moorish-style architecture, three naves separated by semicircular arches on square pillars. The town’s festive calendar starts on February 2nd with the festival in honour of the town´s patron saint, the Virgen de la Candaleria but one of the most popular festivals is the Dia de la Pipa which takes place on May 3rd when all the townsfolk head to the countryside to eat bread rolls filled with hard boiled eggs and of course to drink and be merry! The easiest way to get to Colmenar from Málaga is to take the autovia towards Sevilla/Granada and turn off at Casabermeja where one of the few remaining Osborne Bulls stands majestic on the hill in front of you. However, the most attractive route is via the Montes de Málaga on the Carretera de Colmenar, through the pine forests with the road winding higher and higher and over itself via 2 tunnels. There are a few Venta´s on route where you can stop to admire the view, take in the smell of the pines and generally have a good, relaxing time.

Pies And Bienestar When is it time to give up? That is not an easy question to answer. A simple answer would be NEVER, but life is not as simple as that. It really depends on what you want to achieve. If you are only looking for being right no matter how wrong you are, then by all means don’t give up, even if it makes you completely stupid. It is very human to have problems. In theory we may need our problems in order to feel more important, to get more attention, sympathy or pity. We talk about our problems and make them worse than they really are. As much as we apparently love our problems, since we talk about them all the time, we love our solutions even more. The good thing about solutions is that it is more constructive to focus on solutions than on problems. Unfortunately our solutions are often uninspected and do not work. At one point or another we decide that we have a solution and than we stick to it year by year, even if it doesn’t work at all. Things

like I’m going to stop smoking if I get pregnant; one day they will invent a miracle pill so that I can loose weight; I have been eating junk food for twenty years and haven’t died yet so it must be good for me...etc. What it really means is that we have not yet come to a point where change is needed, and if there is no need for change, nothing will change. Are you in perfect health, physically, socially and mentally? Are you coping alright with everyday stress, shortcomings and fears? Don’t invite disaster. Don’t even invite the smallest pain or loss of energy. Something can usually be done about it and if you are ready for a change then there is a good chance that we can help you. There is no need for giving up improvement. Visit us at Pies y Bienestar, Calle Pintada 73 in Nerja, telephone 722 188 811

People Who Come And Go - Deborah Cater I CAME, I WENT, I CAME BACK AGAIN This is Deborah’s second time living here!! She previously rented a house in Sedella for 3 years, then spent time in Italy, fell in love, out of love, and returned around 10 months ago. Now, finally, she feels at home and has just purchased the sweetest little house, walking distance from the beach and yet in the middle of the countryside, near Almayate. The house needs some work, but it has enormous potential, an Andalusían style patio and a completely flat garden, all for a great price! “We will be making our property as green as possible...chickens are planned for one of the outbuildings and a strip of the garden, also a comfortable home for the three dogs, with a good walk down to the sea for all of us in the cooler hours (well, not the chickens). And we have well water too, so plenty to get growing in the garden!” Deborah loves the relaxed atmosphere of Spain which is most prevalent in Andalucía. “But it can be a double-edged sword; the bureaucracy here is infuriating. My advice would

be to do all you need to do in one short(ish) burst of activity, then you won't feel that your new/second home is in fact the offices of the Guardia Civil.” As she is just a young thing, I asked Deborah what she does for a living." “I teach English at a school around 20 minutes from here, so I am very lucky. But I am also a blogger and writer on the side. I love Andalucía, and in particular Axarquía. Why? because it is the quieter side of the coast, fewer tourists, a more Spanish feel. I'm happy for my traffic jam to come in the form of a herd of 100 goats, 2 dusty dogs and a shepherd- compare that to the queues on the M1, M40 or M25!” "Deborah's blog is:" See contact details in ad below

Fashion In - Part Two We have all sat and watched as the great and famous, have lined up to go into some premier. These are women who you think would’ve some ideas regarding fashion. Noooo! Even these divas seem to have some vital part of there brain missing. These are women whose bodies are adorned with dresses that cost thousands of pounds. Yet how many times have you thought. “Christ, she looks a mess, her husband should have said something.” If we look like a dogs breakfast, we have an excuse, but these people have dressers. They spend hours getting the design and fit just right. They are surrounded by people who's job it is to make them look good. The cut may be fabulous. The tailoring may be beyond reproach, but they still look like reject from. “A day in the life of a hermit.” Like I said before, most humans appear to have this strange deficiency in this brain function, when it come to how they should dress. We can see it in others, but when we look in the mirror. We can not see it in ourselves. Now the average person has two arms and two legs and a body to join them all together, but

this is where the similarity ends. As a life form, you must admit we are an odd shaped lot and as we get older, It gets even worse. My boobs are now bigger than the wife's for a start, yet the fashion industry still insist I am still eleven stone and the wife is eight stone. I want some thing that will cover my belly. Not enhance it! Just why do some people have to keep up with fashion? It may be that you suited last years colour and style, but this years colour and style makes you look like the hunch back of Notre Dame’s long lost brother. Yet there they are, stuffing there bodily partials into items of clothing that would probably look better on a orangutan and what is the difference between last years style and this year? A tuck here, make the skirt one inch shorter there. Think about it! Have styles changed that much in the past few years? By now, some of you may be thinking. “What gives this apology of the male gender the right to say such things and exactly what makes him such an expert.” OK, here is my CV. I am over sixty and I am also the opposite of a fashion guru. “What's that?” The “Lord and Master of the Universe,” has just informed me that the word I am looking for is “Slob” I wake up in the morning, give my T-shirt a sniff and think. “Yep, that will last another day.” I know for a fact, that no matter what type of clothes I wear. I will have the sex appeal of a tin of Andrews Liver Salts, as with most men of my age. I just leave it up to the wife to deck me out in any apparel that she thinks is suitable. This is because I can guarantee, what ever I choose is wrong. As you get older, they say that certain brain cells start to die. It may be like that with me, the part of the brain that used to tell me that I looked good in skin tight trousers and thick sold beetle crusher shoes has now died. Now I am not saying that this destructive brain cell has died completely.Every so often, when I am been dragged around the shops. I will pick something up and think. “I may not look to bad in this.” But then reality sets in and I gently place it back on the shelf and carry on walking. So if any of you women out there need any advise on what you look good in and what makes you look like a dogs dinner, give me a bell. Why do I get the feeling it will be the husbands phoning regarding there wife and not the wife! Written by a Grumpy Old Geordie

Asbestos - Have You Been In Contact?

My name is Steve Woods and I am a solicitor based in Chester, UK, specialising in claims for asbestos-related diseases. I have been dealing with these claims for over 25 years and I aim to provide a professional but personal service. I often visit people in Spain and I have recently been to Mijas Costa, Benalmadena and Torremolinos We all know that as we get older, we can develop breathing problems. These problems can have a variety of causes but after investigations such as x-rays or scans, problems with shortness of breath can be attributed to exposure to asbestos. These investigations can show whether lung damage has been caused by smoking or exposure to asbestos – this can cause very serious illnesses: asbestosis, diffuse pleural thickening and mesothelioma (a cancer that attacks the protective lining of the lungs). It is not only workmen who have used asbestos themselves who develop these diseases, but also other men working in their vicinity or their wives and other family members who come into contact with their work clothes. It does not matter if the person involved has died – claims are still possible in certain circumstances. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with an asbestos-related condition, has breathing problems and has come into contact with asbestos in the UK, please get in touch. You may be entitled to claim damages or benefits in the UK and I can help on a ‘no win no fee’ basis. A change in the rules now enables a solicitor to agree with his client to take a share of any

money recovered. A lot of solicitors now do this but I do not – because I believe my clients should receive in full whatever compensation I can obtain for them. I can also guarantee that all claims are dealt with by a qualified solicitor. I am happy to talk to anyone free of charge about their individual situation to see if a claim is possible. I can be contacted on 00 44 1244 340560 at or alternatively you can visit my website at

Golf Jokes :) This is for GOLF nuts A husband and wife are on the 9th green when suddenly she collapses from a heart attack! "Help me dear," she groans to her husband. The husband calls 911 on his mobile phone, talks for a few minutes, picks up his putter, and lines up his putt. His wife raises her head off the green and stares at him. "I'm dying here and you're putting?" "Don't worry dear," says the husband calmly, "they found a doctor on the second hole and he's coming to help you." "Well, how long will it take for him to get here?" she asks feebly. "No time at all," says her husband. "Everybody's already agreed to let him play through." ------------------------------------------------------------A gushy reporter told Phil Mickelson, "You are spectacular; your name is synonymous with the game of golf. You really know your way around the course. What's your secret?" Mickelson replied, "The holes are numbered." ------------------------------------------------------------A young man and a priest are playing together.

At a short par-3 the priest asks, "What are you going to use on this hole, my son?" The young man says, "An 8-iron, father. How about you?" The priest says, "I'm going to hit a soft seven and pray." The young man hits his 8-iron and puts the ball on the green. The priest tops his 7-iron and dribbles the ball out a few yards. The young man says, "I don't know about you, father, but in my church, when we pray, we keep our head down." ------------------------------------------------------------Police are called to an apartment and find a woman holding a bloody3-iron standing over a lifeless man. The detective asks, "Ma'am, is that your husband?" "Yes" says the woman. "Did you hit him with that golf club?" "Yes, yes, I did." The woman begins to sob, drops the club, and puts her hands on her face. "How many times did you hit him?" "I don't know - 6, 7, maybe 8 - oh, just put me down for five."

But do you have to build your own room? Brick by brick it's been painstakingly built - and now the new Legoland Resort Hotel is just about ready for the public. But do you have to build your own room? Luckily no. The attraction, unveiled last month, at the Winter Haven in Florida, was profiled on Click Orlando and it's all been built with proper materials. The features bear a resemblance to the Legoland Resort Hotel in Windsor. Visitors first encounter a Lego green smoke-breathing dragon before heading to a Lego pit by the check-in desk - for both parents and kids. There are 5,000 Lego Mini figures lining the walls and kids have bunk beds in their own rooms. There's even a disco elevator for the holiday to start when you're on your way to your floor. Brittany Williams with Legoland Florida Resorts said that the average guest is booking rooms for two nights, with the first two nights already

being completely sold out. "It's been incredibly popular. We've had people making reservations for months." Room themes in the resort, which spans five storeys, include adventure, pirate, kingdom and Lego Friends. Taryn Pisaneschi, a blogger for family holidays, told Click Orlando it was well worth a visit for Lego fans. "The whole experience was surprisingly good. The beds were great, the decorations were fantastic. Even the floor matched the theme of the rooms." Prices start from ÂŁ51 per night

No Need To Paint Now is the time to have the exterior of your property painted and not repeat the process until 2030. Exterior painting and decorating can be a real chore, many properties on the Costa del Sol due to the unpredictable and severe weather that is experienced at the end of the summer and beginning of spring have to be redecorated every 2 to 3 years. Also, due to poor building techniques, many properties suffer from black mould on the interior due to penetrating damp. Another annoying problem is the Sahara sand rain which gets deposited at least twice a year. In this modern day and age when there are many long life exterior home improvements such as UPVC windows, doors, and shutters etc, which can last for 20 years or more, why can't the same technology be applied to exterior masonry coatings? Many people are unaware that there is a com-

pany called Andura based in Bicester Oxfordshire for over 40 years, who are a BSI registered company and many of their products come with the much coveted British Board of Agrement Certificates. No Need to Paint Costa del Sol are their exclusive agents. Their products are designed and proven to last in excess of 15 years to stop penetrating damp, still allow the walls to breathe and their coatings are fully washable and fade resistant. In these difficult times it pays to protect your property and especially not to have the costly re-decorating responsibility every few years. If you would like to make exterior, painting and maintenance a thing of the past, please feel free to give us a call for an entirely free of obligation survey or see advert on page 13

hurley revealed Actress – and ‘famous for being famous’ star – Liz Hurley showed off rather more than she intended as she stepped out in New York wearing a flowing dress recently. She may be the star of a show called The Royals, but Hurley suffered a less-than-regal wardrobe malfunction. The star was wearing a long peachy gown at the Hot Pink Party for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in New York. To avoid standing on her gorgeous gown, the 49-year-old lifted it up instead and revealed her bare bottom. But she's used to showing off her smalls - Liz plays the leading lady Queen Helena in the new show The Royals which is a promiscuous take on the Royal Family. Rita strips ‘The Voice’ judge and pop superstar Rita Ora has stripped off for a naked snap as work continues on her second album. The star was in the studio laying down tracks for her follow-up to her 2012 debut ‘Ora’, when she shared the snap on Instagram. Wearing nothing but her birthday suit and a pair of red high heels, the star is shown sitting on a chair with her legs crossed. Alongside emojis of the red shoes, she teased: "Meanwhile..." The Voice judge's future on the show might be uncertain, but she's currently focusing on her own music. Carla quitting Actress Alison King has quit her role as Carla Connor on Coronation Street after nine years. The 42-year-old actress is set to bow out of the long running ITV soap opera next year to ‘work on other projects.’ Confirming the news, a spokeswoman for the

show said: 'Alison has indicated she would like to take a sabbatical from the show for creative reasons at some point in 2016.' King made her first appearance on the cobbles in December 2006 and picked up the gong for Best Actress at the British Soap Awards in 2012. No date has been set for her return. The statement also assured fans that before her departure, Alison's character Carla would continue to bring the drama.

A Song For Spain Eight years ago Tricia Gabbitas left chilly Yorkshire to spend winter in Torre del Mar. As she walked along the Paseo Maritimo she found herself composing a song that she called “Espania”. The song has remained in her files since then, while she was busy composing and recording 20 Gospel songs under the album “The Gift … Songs of Love for The Loving God”. Now, at last, Tricia has released the “Espania” track on iTunes – available for download at only 99cents (79p). As she says “With the current resurgence of UK tourists and buyers I think it is about time for a new Spanish Tourist song. This one is bright and catchy!”

In the meantime her poetry and stories are available on Tricia also hopes to record her Anthem for Andalucia this summer with the help of her Musical Director, John Springate, who provided all the backing tracks for her other compositions.

& t i u Fr Facts s Veg rtichoke A

Don't be daunted by artichokes. This fantastic vegetable is not only tasty, but comes armed with a barrage of potent, healthful and cancerfighting nutrients. The globe artichoke, cynara scolymus, is the immature flower of a thistle plant and one of the oldest cultivated vegetables in the world. It comes to fruition in summer and, though a little tricky to prepare, is a delight to eat and bursting with goodness. Most people's favourite part of the artichoke is the heart, but the leaves are actually the source of the vast majority of its health benefits. In clinical studies, artichoke leaf extract has been proven to have potent disease-fighting and anti-ageing properties. Artichokes are packed with phytonutrients such as quercetin, rutin, gallic acid and cynarin, which all help to protect against many health risks including cancer, heart disease, liver dysfunction, high cholesterol and diabetes. In 2004, the United States Department of Agriculture conducted a comprehensive study analysing the antioxidant content of the most commonly consumed foods. To the surprise of many, artichokes ranked in the top four vegetables and seventh overall. Artichokes are probably best known for their cholesterol reducing and liver protecting properties. The French have known this for years and often take artichoke extract during periods of indulgence, such as at Christmas, as it helps digest fatty foods and ease indigestion. We all know the dangers of high cholesterol and the increased risk of coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis. Cynarin in artichokes has been conclusively proven to reduce bad cholesterol dramatically. The high concentration of cynarin can also improve digestive health. Cynarin is known to stimulate the production of bile, which enables

us to digest fats and absorb vitamins from our food, making artichokes an excellent way to start any meal – especially if it is rich and high in fat. Artichoke leaf extract can be very helpful for people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and dyspepsia, or upset stomach. In a study at the University of Reading, 208 adults who suffered from IBS and dyspepsia were monitored over a two-month period of treatment with artichoke leaf extract. Results showed a 26.4 per cent reduction in IBS incidence among the participants at the end of the trial. Many subjects also reported a return to normal bowel function instead of the "alternating constipation/diarrhoea" typical of IBS. Dyspepsia symptoms also fell by 41 per cent after treatment and, in general, the participants noted a 20 per cent increase in quality of life after treatment.

In the 18th century, members of the European aristocracy would remove goldfish from their ponds and place them into decorative bowls for special occasions.

The female lays up to 500 eggs at a time. Once the eggs are released, the male fertilizes them. Goldfish will eat their own eggs. Contrary to popular belief, the goldfish memory span is far beyond three seconds. Goldfish have the capacity to learn and adopt patterns of behaviour. A school of goldfish is known as a "troubling." Goldfish do not blink because they have no eyelids.

There are hundreds of varieties of goldfish found around the world. Goldfish have teeth in their throat called pharyngeal teeth which are used to help them crush their food. Goldfish may grow as long as 23 inches and weigh nearly 7 pounds, although this is rare. Goldfish do not have stomachs. Different parts of their intestines do the job of breaking down food and absorbing nutrients. Goldfish can live up to 30 years—longer than most other aquarium fish. Goldfish cannot be reliably sexed until they are at least one year of age. It is easiest to identify the distinguishing features between male and female goldfish during the breeding season. At that time, males develop white, pimple-like spots on their gills. The females’ abdomen becomes enlarged. Goldfish courtship can create quite a splash in the aquarium! Once the female reaches sexual maturity, she begins to release pheromones. This triggers the male to begin his pursuit by chasing the female around and poking at her stomach. This behaviour is often confused with fighting and can become quite aggressive. The male is trying to get the female to release her eggs which are held in the abdomen.

Summer Facts

The Bird

1) “Ancient Romans and Greeks blamed Sirius for the extreme temperatures, drought, sickness, and discomfort that came in late summer.”

Newborn bird, From sky’s domain, Encaged in pain.

2) “The Summer Olympics take place every four years. They were held for the first time in Greece more than two thousand years ago.”

Am I not,

3) “The modern Summer Olympics were revived in 1896.”

Whom thoughtless man,

The bird I see, Or is he not,

4) “Mosquitoes, summer’s pest, have been around for more than 30 million years.”

A man like me.

5) “Summers spent throwing a Frisbee back and forth owe their game to a pie maker named Mr. Frisbee.”

As we sing,

6) “The first bathing suit for women was created in the 1800s. It was long sleeved with woolen bloomers.”

And dream to fly, Though we’re encaged, Until we die.

7) “Romans began the summer wedding tradition, choosing June for Juno’s blessing. The tradition stuck.”

If thought means death,

8) August is the busiest month for travel and tourism.”

And thought is life, Then with my thought’s, The cage I’ll strive. And if one day, I’m free to fly, This happy bird, Will touch the sky. By Guillermo Olmos Fernández

Los Romanes Author Launches Third Book Rosie Dean, resident of Los Romanes, has launched her third romantic comedy, Chloe’s Rescue Mission Chloe’s Rescue Mission is about a young woman trying to save her grandfather’s legacy – The Joshua Steele Theatre – by going on TV to sell her services to the highest bidder. Enter leisure tycoon, business angel and playboy, Duncan Thorsen. Like a true ‘dragon’ he has the power, influence and finances to help her, but when the bank calls in the debts, and the council enforces closure, just how much paparazzi exposure and wheeling and dealing can a girl stomach? Running alongside the comedy is another, subtle and more serious message, about rebuilding confidence after being in a difficult relationship. In addition to Rosie’s other romantic comedies, she has short stories in anthologies published by Harlequin Mills & Boon, Thornberry Publishing and Flint Productions. Rosie has been an active member of the Costa Writing Group, which meets every fortnight in

El Morche. The group is led by crime writer, Wendy Cartmell. The group’s founder, Hannah M Davis of Competa, continues to work as an editor on Rosie’s books. After spending eighteen years writing marketing and training materials for corporate clients, Rosie is delighted to be using her creativity on more entertaining projects. ‘My enthusiasm for medical catheters and construction materials was really stretched to its limits. Now I can lose myself in far more engaging topics…and make things up!’ For further information please contact: Email: Website: Hit Lit Pro: A recent blog interview with Rosie can be found here: interview-with-romantic-comedy-authorrosie-dean/

Luke continues riding bulls, despite the risk of being hurt again, while he and Sophia fall in love. Meanwhile, Sophia continuously visits the man she and Luke rescued, Ira Levinson (Alan Alda). He tells her the story, in 1940, of how young Ira (Jack Huston) met his late wife, Ruth (Oona Chaplin); their stories interweave.

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of ARIES: March 21-April 20 Your energy level is high, accompanied with great ambition in everything you do. Temper potential runaway forces with discipline, control and perseverance, to bring projects to beneficial fruition. A weekend trip could bring answers to your questions TAURUS: April 21-May 21 Your sharp insight and intuition is favourable to all business activities and actions you undertake during June. For the same reason this is a really good time to make decisions with your common sense enabling you to avoid risky ventures. As if that wasn’t enough, your optimism attracts positive energies that benefit you in every way GEMINI: May 22-June 21 Although you have no interest in self-analysis, you need to remove deep-rooted feelings of insecurity. In doing so, many negative and depressive views will disappear and you’ll reap rewards in both business and family relationships CANCER: June 22-July 22 Many of your forthcoming issues will involve money honey. For some Cancerians the lack of it and for others what best to do with it! For those with the latter dilemma, you are best rewarded through investments that serve humanity, creating a community, helping those in need, researching alternative energy or other means of financing the future LEO: July 23-August 23 June brings moments of passion to Leo - enough to remove thoughts of other interests – while your mood and feelings will swing from excitement to despair and fear of death. Avoid signing contracts or making changes at home or in the workplace VIRGO: August 24-September 22 Riding a high, be careful to curb tendencies to ex-

aggerate or take a proud or arrogant attitude this month. Try to be realistic and avoid disagreements with those who are, and have been, your teachers. Practice moderation and humility or risk losing a friend LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 Good times ahead for Librans during June! Whilst you have a tendency to fall in love with, and attract, people from other cultures, don’t necessarily expect acceptance in return. The major influence for you this month brings all round protection and good luck SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 Feeling bold and confident, and surrounded by affection, try to be discreet or unforeseen events could cause loss of everything built and obtained. It would be imprudent to disregard danger SAGITTARIUS: November 22 - December 21 An eventful month for Sagittarians, even within your usual routine. Despite your innate stubbornness and rebellious, you are hard-working, super-concentrated, focused, with a heightened inner strength and ability to lead. Rock on CAPRICORN: December 22 - January 20 A time to play one of your virtues – discipline – to the maximum. No need to avoid dealing with issues but proceed with caution and beware of unresolved lawsuits. Avoid travel during June AQUARIUS: January 21 - February 19 If you are in a relationship or employment for convenience now is the time you should instigate change. Evaluate both and, unless you are comfortable and happy, begin the path of change PISCES: February 20 - March 20 You are a hunter in search of prey and find it difficult to rest until achieving what you want. Beware of being so obsessive. Train your natural ability to lead and capacity to demask people enabling them to realise, and appreciate, who they really are

The bewildered priest coughs to attract his attention, but still the man says nothing. The priest then knocks on the wall three times in a final atempt to get the man to speak.

Finally the drunk replies - "No use knockin' mate - there's no paper in this one either". ------------------------------------------------------------A psychiatrist was conducting a group therapy session with three young mothers and their small children. "You all have obsessions," he observed. To the first mother, he said, "You are obsessed with eating. You've even named your daughter Candy." He turned to the second mum. "Your obsession is money. Again, it manifests itself in your child's name, Penny." At this point, the third mother got up, took her little boy by the hand and whispered, "Come on, Dick, let's go." ------------------------------------------------------------A women was pregnant with triplets.

Jokes h a ha :) A young man was showing off his new sports car to his girlfriend. She was thrilled at the speed. "If I do 200mph, will you take off your clothes?" he asked. "Yes!" said his adventurous girlfriend. And as he gets up to 200, she peeled off all her clothes. Unable to keep his eyes on the road, the car skidded onto some gravel and flipped over. The naked girl was thrown clear, but he was jammed beneath the steering wheel. "Go and get help!" he cried. "But I can't. I'm naked and my clothes are gone!" "Take my shoe", he said, "and cover yourself." Holding the shoe over her pubes, the girl ran down the road and found a service station. Still holding the shoe between her legs, she pleaded to the service station proprietor, "Please help me! My boyfriend's stuck!" The proprietor looked at the shoe and said, "There's nothing I can do...he's in too far." ------------------------------------------------------------A married couple was on holiday in Pakistan they were touring around the market place looking at the goods and such, when they passed a small sandal shop. From the inside they heard a Pakistani accent say, "You foreigners come in. Come in my humble shop." So the married couple walked in. The Pakistani man said to them, "I have some special sandals I think you'd be interested in. They make you wild at sex like a great dessert camel" Well, the wife was really interested in buying the sandals after what the man had claimed, but her husband felt he really didn't need them, being a sex hero that he was. The husband, "How could sandals make you into a sex freak?"

The Pakistani man replied, “Why don't you see for yourself?" Well, the husband after much badgering from his wife, finally conceded to try them on. As soon as he slipped them onto this feet, he got this wild look in his eyes, something his wife hadn't seen in years - raw sexual power. In a blink of an eye the husband rushed up to the Pakistani man, threw him on the table and started tearing at the guy's trousers. All the time the Pakistani man was screaming, "YOU HAVE THEM ON THE WRONG FEET YOU HAVE THEM ON THE WRONG FEET!!!" ------------------------------------------------------------A married couple went to the hospital to have their baby delivered. Upon their arrival, the doctor said he had invented a new machine that would transfer a portion of the mother’s pain to the baby's father. He asked if they were willing to try it out. they were both very much in favour of it. The doctor set the pain transfer to 10%, for starters, explaining that even 10% was probably more pain the father had ever experienced before. However, as the labour progressed, the husband felt fine and asked the doctor to go ahead and "kick it up a notch." The doctor then adjusted the machine to 20% pain transfer. The husband still feeling fine. The doctor checked the husbands blood pressure and was amazed at how well he was doing at this point, they decided to try for 50%, the husband continued to feel quite well. Since the pain transfer was obviously helping out the wife considerably, the husband encouraged the doctor to transfer ALL the pain to him. The wife delivered a healthy baby boy with virtually no pain. She and her husband were ecstatic. When they got home, the milkman was dead on the porch!
