I’m still in a place called Polson, in Montana, as I write this editorial and I will be returning to Spain in just two weeks from now. Back to sunshine (hopefully), shopping at Mercadona, delicious curries at The Taj Mahal, lunches with my lovely parents, and meeting with friends. I’ve only been over here in the States for three months but it’s surprising the things we miss when we’re away from the mundaneness of everyday life. As the saying goes we often take the little things for granted, and those are the things which are inevitably missed the most when we are away from our usual routine. One of the things that has dramatically improved for me since journeying here to the US is my living conditions. Having previously lived in a fairly small one-bed apartment for eight years, and then having house-sat an inland villa for a stint, I now find myself overlooking the most gorgeous lake. On days like today, the water is practically still, the sky is clear blue, and as a result I can see a near perfect reflection of the clouds in its centre. The looming mountains in the distance have precise, decisive edges and remind me of the wonderful nature which God has created for us all here to enjoy during our time here on earth. Not only that, but I am also reminded of how much we humans are just like the lake. When we allow the time to be still the clarity which shows up in our lives is nothing short of amazing. Before we still our minds, through meditation or one of the many other methods available, everything is fuzzy and jumbled up in our lives. We’re not sure what our next step is to achieve a particular goal, we find it hard to make a decision, and we might even find ourselves getting angry or irritable more often than usual. These are signs that stillness is needed. And when we make that effort, and reflect inwards, the answers reveal themselves in magical, often miraculous ways.

Strange News

I’ve been meditating and stilling my mind every day for the last three years and I can safely say that I am amazed with the results. Now I see meditating as a bit like brushing my teeth. I do it twice a day in order to stay clean and fresh on the inside, where it matters most.

Porky Puzzle - Baffled police in China have been given a giant pig as a bizarre thank you for help they gave a grieving widow 15 years ago. Farmer Lin Ruirong was devastated when her husband died in 1998, leaving her to run the family spread by herself.But big-hearted local police in Nanning helped her get in the harvest until she was back on her feet. Now Lin, 57, has finally paid them back with a giant porker raised on the farm they helped to save. "I never forgot their kindness because I would have been finished without it,” she said."I am quite wealthy now and this is the least I could do for them. I know the officers who helped me have probably moved on because it was a long time ago, but the ones in their place also go about helping people in trouble without complaint so they deserve a reward too."

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter.

Aye Eye - An assault trial was disrupted in the US when the victim's prosthetic eye popped out as he was giving evidence. John Huttick was crying as he testified about the impact of losing his eye in a fight in the car park of a Philadelphia bar. Suddenly, his prosthetic blue eye popped out. Huttick caught it & cried out as jurors gasped and started to rise from their seats. "I couldn't believe it just came out," Huttick said, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Judge Robert Coleman, who called it an "unfortunate, unforeseen incident", granted a mistrial and scheduled a new trial for March. Defendant Matthew Brunelli is accused of assaulting Mr Huttick by punching him in the eye, while allegedly holding a metal key. Huttick, who is suing Brunelli, said he lost his job because of the injury & that depression drained his finances & nearly broke up his relationship. Parking Woes - Road workers have been caught on camera towing a car away in Tel Aviv - after painting a disabled parking space around the vehicle. Hila Ben Baruch was ordered to pay £170, plus towing costs, after being accused of illegally parking in the Israeli city. The angry motorist, who had parked near her apartment, later uncovered surveillance footage of the shocking incident and posted it on Facebook. "You just see it and can't believe it," she wrote on the social network where the video received hundreds of likes. "Within five minutes they turned me into a criminal. But who cares? The important thing is that Tel Aviv sucked some more blood." Ms Ben Baruch has since received an apology from the local city hall who waived the fine after admitting it was a 'serious error'. But that was not enough to satisfy Ms Ben Baruch who is now threatening legal proceedings. "I don't plan to keep quiet, not even for a moment, or to rest or to calm down," she insisted.

A Little Poem Another year has passed And we're all a little older. Last summer felt hotter And winter seems much colder. There was a time not long ago When life was quite a blast. Now I fully understand About 'Living in the Past'. We used to go to weddings, Football games and lunches. Now we go to funeral homes And after-funeral brunches. We used to have hangovers, From parties that were gay. Now we suffer body aches And wile the night away.

To places near and far. Now we get sore asses From riding in the car. We used to go to nightclubs And drink a little booze. Now we stay home at night And watch the evening news. That, my friend is how life is, And now my tale is told. So, enjoy each day and live it up... Before you're too damned old!

We used to go out dining, And couldn't get our fill. Now we ask for doggie bags, Come home and take a pill. We used to often travel

De Cotta Law The British Community in Spain By Sandra Wrightson, Overseas Barrister, De Cotta Law You will probably all know of British groups, associations, organisations and charities in your area. In this article we won’t be naming any names but we think it is important to highlight how these groups can provide information, help with problems and, particularly with the charities working here, provide invaluable help to those who need it whether temporarily or on a more permanent basis. At a recent British Consulate event a local Spanish journalist asked why the British in particular had so many groups and associations. It is a difficult question to answer as most of us don’t really think there is anything unusual in getting together for reasons as diverse as gardening and cooking; or helping support injured soldiers or cancer patients. Fund raising for charities is of course a worldwide activity and here in Spain there are many international and European groups who work together for people from all the different communities. Recently I personally had the humbling experience of meeting a retired military officer who had cycled 4.000 kilometres - from London to Rabat in Morocco - to raise money for one particular charity, Mèdicins sans Frontiéres! While none of us could probably match this feat we hope that this article might help to inspire you to look up local charities and groups that give such valuable support to all of us in southern Spain. More information: The website of the British Consulate in Malaga has details of a number of English-speaking contacts including a PDF list of English-speaking organisations and charities in Malaga, compiled and hosted by the SUR in English newspaper. http://ukinspain.fco.gov.uk/en/about-us/otherlocations/malaga-consulate/local-contacts De Cotta Law De Cotta Law (De Cotta McKenna & Santafé) has been serving the English speaking international community across Spain (including the Costa de la Luz; Costa del Sol; Murcia; and the Costa Blanca) since 1983. Sandra Wrightson is an overseas Barrister spe-

cialising in conflicts of laws. In Spain, she has worked closely with Spanish lawyers for more than 10 years advising international and British clients in English; and has a lot of experience in litigation and family law both in private and commercial areas such as timeshare and insolvency. Sandra Wrightson has been involved in a number of significant cases enforcing English judgements over property and companies in Spain and in recovering assets in insolvencies, property, timeshare and family matters.

interesting Facts - Ecuador is a patchwork of indigenous communities, including people of colonial Spanish origins and the descendants of African slaves. For a small country, Ecuador has many geographical zones. They include Andean peaks, tropical rainforests and over 1,000km (600 miles) off the coast they have the volcanic Galapagos Islands, home to the animals and birds whose evolutionary adaptations shaped Charles Darwin's theories. Traditionally a farming country, Ecuador's economy was transformed after the 1960s by the growth of industry and the discovery of oil. There was rapid growth and progress in health, education and housing. Its capital city is Quito, which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in the 1970s for having the best preserved and least altered historic centre in Latin America.

The Future Of English TV In Spain In December 2012, the first of many channels disappeared from our TV screens. This is due to the replacement of satellites which are located at 28.2 degrees east and are coming to the end of their operational lifetime. The channels we have currently lost have moved from Astra 1N to the replacement third generation satellite, Astra 2F, which was launched in September 2012; it will soon be joined by Astra 2E. The remaining UK channels which are still broadcasting on Astra 1N are due to be transferred in the summer of 2013 to the new Astra 2E satellite. These channels will include all the other BBC, ITV, CH4 family of channels which broadcast free to air. Unfortunately, these replacement satellites have a tighter footprint on the UK, meaning that it will not be possible to receive these channels without a considerably larger dish. The cost & size (expected to be between 2.43m depending on location) of these dishes will not be a viable option for many. so what is the solution? IPTV For those of us with internet, the solution could be an IPTV set top box. IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) can provide television programmes and channels direct to your TV via a broadband connec-

tion. All you need is a broadband internet connection (min 2MB/pref 3MB or above), a set top box & a TV. That’s it! You do not need a satellite dish, nor do you need to use your laptop or computer. To stream channels over the internet requires a lot of bandwidth, this is the amount of data you are permitted to receive. Most landline internet companies do not have limits but if you receive your internet via satellite or antenna, you may face restrictions. What does it include? There are 35 channels on the set top box, including BBC, ITV & CH4, together with a seven- day catch up! All your favourite channels are there, including BBC1, BBC2, BBC3, BBC News, ITV1, ITV2, ITV3, ITV4, Channel 4, Channel 5, E4, More 4, CCBC, CBeebies, Citv, Chart Show, Film 4, Movies4Men, True Movies, CBS Reality, CBS Action, CBS Drama and more‌All these channels are accessible through a click of a button on your remote control. There is no need to load up web pages and search through countless pages in order to find what you are looking for; just sit back and enjoy your TV! We are currently testing a range of set top boxes to find the best solution. Please call us if you require any further advice see main advert below

how to prevent high blood pressure Having high blood pressure can be prevented by eating heathily, maintaining a healthy weight, taking regular exercise, drinking alcolhol in moderation and not smoking. Diet Cut down on the amount of salt in your food and eat plenty of fruit and vegetables. Salt raises your blood pressure. The more salt you eat, the higher your blood pressure. Aim to eat less than 6g (0.2oz) of salt a day, which is about a teaspoonful. Eat a low-fat diet that includes lots of fibre (for eg: wholegrain rice, bread and pasta) and plenty of fruit and vegetables has been proven to lower blood pressure.

Alcohol is also high in calories, which will make you gain weight, which will increase your blood pressure. Caffine Drinking more than four cups of coffee a day may increase your blood pressure. weight Being overweight forces your heart to work harder to pump blood around your body, which can raise your blood pressure. If you do need to lose weight, it is worth remembering that just losing a few pounds will make a big difference to your blood pressure and overall health. Exercise Being active and taking regular exercice lowers blood pressure by keeping your heart and blood vessles in good condition. Regular exercise can also help you to lose weight, which will also help lower your blood pressure. relaxation therapies Relaxation therapy and exercise can reduce blood pressure. These therapies include; stress management, meditation or yoga and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).

alcohol Regularly drinking above what the NHS recommends will raise your blood pressure over time. Staying within the recommended levels is the best way to reduce your risk of deleloping high blood pressure.

smoking Smoking does not directly cause high blood pressure but it puts you at a much higher risk of a heart attack and a stroke. Smoking, like high blood pressure, will cause your arteries to narrow. If you smoke and have high blood pressure, your arteries will narrow much more quickly and your isk of a heart or lung disease in the future is dramatically increased.

Men should not regularly drink more than three to four units a day and women should not regularly drink more than two to three units a day.

In the coming months... information on the symptoms of high blood pressure and diagnosis and treatment.

Puffer fish are the most poisonous fish in the world; one puffer fish has enough toxins to kill several humans. They are generally believed to be the second most poisonous vertebrates in the world, after the golden poison frog. They are also known as "blowfish" or "balloonfish"

They are also widely known for their ability to turn themselves into a ball; they can ingest a huge amount of water to blow up their body to many times its original size. Puffer fish are not good at swimming, but they can use their natural defence skill to protect themselves from predators. They are m a i n l y found in tropical and subtropical waters, but some species are found in fresh water too.

Amazing Marine Life (Continued) There are more than 150 species of puffer fish to be found all over the world. Puffer fish have a poisonous liver and gallbladder which make them potentially dangerous to other predators. There is no known antidote available. In Japan, puffer fish are known as "Fugu,� and Japanese people love eating dishes prepared from them. The dishes are prepared carefully by removing the toxic organs, as any mistake in preparation can be fatal. This is why a special licence is required to become a "Fugu chef."

Some specifies of puffer fish have spines on their skin; these types are less vulnerable to predators. Puffer fish have very thick and rough skin, which protects them from attack by many of their predators. The stomach of the puffer fish is very elastic. It can expand to several times larger than the fish’s actual body. Puffer fish have only four teeth which together, form a beak-like shape. They are very strong, though, and can even crack clams and mussels. Puffers are able to move their eyes independently, and many species can change the colour or intensity of their patterns in response to environmental changes. They are closely related to porcupine fish.

Recipe Of The Month Pancakes Alaska - Serves 4 We think of pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, when in fact they make an ideal sweet for anytime of the year. This is slightly adventurous, but fun to make and rather like an illusion, as the ice cream in the centre is cooked - yet still remains frozen.

salt into a mixing bowl, break the eggs into the centre, add about a quarter of the milk. Whisk thoroughly until smooth, then gradually add the remaining liquid to give a thin pouring batter with the consistency of single cream. Alternatively, place all the ingredients in a food processor and whizz well.

For the basic pancake batter 100g/4oz plain flour pinch salt 1-2 eggs 300ml/ ½ pt milk oil for frying

2. Heat a little oil in a small frying pan until very hot. Pour in a little batter, roll around to cover the base of the pan cook on this side, flip over (or be brave and toss the pancake) and cook on the other side. Turn out on greased paper. Repeat until all the batter is used.

For the filling Fruit of your choice: fresh, canned or frozen and thawed Ice cream to complement the fruit

3. To make the meringue: place the egg whites in a mixing bowl, whisk until the egg whites stand in peaks, gradually add the sugar a little at a time until all the sugar is used.

For the meringue 3 egg whites 175g/6oz caster sugar

4. Fill the centre of each pancake with your choice of fruit and place a scoop of ice cream on top, fold over and completely cover with the meringue. Place under a pre-heated grill or in a hot oven until the meringue has lightly coloured. Serve immediately.

Method: 1. Make the pancake batter: sift the flour and

A Page For The Doggies! Welcome to our new feature bought to us by Tina from Happy Hounds. Breeds and breed specific behaviour in dogs For anyone considering sharing their home with a dog, its breed and behaviour pattern should be taken into consideration first. All breeds of dog -- and there are at least 400 of them -- have been bred to look and behave the way they do for a reason. This may be to hunt, guard, herd, fight, race or for their scent, sight and sound abilities. Every dog has breedspecific behaviour with which it is born, and it is something which is not always considered before getting the dog. People take longer to choose a new pair of shoes than they do in selecting the right dog for them, their home, family, work and lifestyle. From their size, shape, coat -- and even the shape and size of their eyes and ears, every dog can give you clues about the purpose for which they have been bred. As well as their appearance, dogs have very different levels of intelligence, too. You might like the look of a Border collie, German shepherd or poodle, but do you really want a dog which is smarter than you are? Intelligent dogs can be easier to train but they also have very active minds and need constant mental -- as well as physical --exercise. You can take them for a long walk, but if their minds are not kept active and they are bored, they might take this boredom out on your new shoes! Many of the dogs we give homes to here -- myself included -- are cross-breeds. Most of the time, you can tell what the ‘cross’ is and your vet can also advise you with this. Your dog will also show you what behaviour is most dominant in him – for example guarding, hunting or chasing. In some cases, owners who think their dogs have a behavioral problem just need help in understanding their individual dog. It can be just that he is simply exhibiting an instinct he was born with, and in understanding this, you are half-way to knowing how to train and educate him.

There are many books and helpful information on the internet on breeds of dogs and their behaviour, and l will be writing every month on various subjects including training, education and health issues. If you have a topic that you would like covered or a specific question please email Tina on: Christina@thesentinella.com a doggy joke - Can Cold water Clean Dishes This is for all the germ conscious folks who worry about using cold water to clean. John went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of Saskatchewan After spending a great evening chatting the night away, the next morning John's grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast. However, John noticed a film like substance on his plate, and questioned his grandfather asking, 'Are these plates clean?' His grandfather replied, 'They're as clean as cold water can get 'em. Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!' For lunch the old man made hamburgers. Again, John was concerned about the plates, as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked, 'Are you sure these plates are clean?' Without looking up the old man said, 'I told you before, Sonny, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don't you fret, I don't want to hear another word about it!' Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he was leaving, his grandfather's dog started to growl, and wouldn't let him pass. John yelled and said, 'Grandfather, your dog won't let me get to my car'. Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching on TV, the old man shouted! 'Coldwater, go lay down now, yah hear me!' Meet Coldwater!

DIGITAL SATELLITE SERVICES sPaNish tV – thE FUtUrE so what’s happening in the world of spanish terrestrial television? An easy way to understand it is that we have all heard of the digital switchover in UK, and it is now happening in most areas. Well, here in Spain, a digital network has already been provided and it has been available for several years.

Most modern television sets have both analogue and digital decoders built into them. By pressing the DTV button on the handset, the television can be put into the ‘automatic tune’ mode, for digital channels. (Please refer to your handbook for further details.) Old analogue-only televisions will require a separate digital converter box added to their system in order to receive the picture on their screen.

so what can the viewer expect?

By the addition of a small terrestrial antenna, you should then acquire up to 30 Spanish TV channels with stereo sound, many radio channels and a fast Teletext service. If your television is so equipped, when a “dubbed” programme (eg originally English language) is transmitted, you will be able to select and listen to that language using your remote control. Spanish TV services transmit a high definition picture (HD) and 3D.

so what is available?

There is lots of sport and as we all know, the Spanish, especially, love their football! There is also Formula 1 and some interesting news programmes, together with many wildlife studies of Spain and Spanish culture; Discovery Max and the Disney Channel. Or how about learning Spanish with the use of subtitles?

Finally

Please make sure that whoever you choose to install your TV antenna uses a digital detection meter in order to ensure optimum picture quality.

New Mum in Town - The First Flight So, here we are at Malaga airport and it's boiling - or is it just me and my nerves?? Anyhow, we have made it through check-in, through security and are now 'relaxing' in the coffee shop which is closest to the gate. Baby girl is happily gaa gaaing away. So far, so good...no tears, no teething issues. I'm just starting to relax when...ding dong ding...the Ryanair flight to Bournemouth is announced. We board the plane with no worries. Supermum is prepared - paracetamol, dummy and of course boob are all at hand. I've been trying to time Jazmín's feed with take-off (to pop her ears), but it's getting more and more difficult to hold off...and of course, my boobs feel like they are about to explode. Why does take-off take so long? Anyhow, it can't be put off any longer; baby girl has ravenously latched on and relief flows through me...and we are finally taking off!! Oh. Jazmín hasn't even stirred. We are nearly in my homeland and she has been soundo the whole time -- not one squeak! Thank Heavens for that. Why was I so worried? The first flight is done, and it was hassle-free. So, I'm back home with my baby girl. Jazmín is loving the trip, albeit slightly overwhelmed by so many new faces cooing over her. And amazingly, the weather is glorious. We have had to buy 'summer' clothes as we seem to have come prepared for the North Pole! We have taken her to a proper, sandy beach and had a little paddle in the FREEZING sea gosh, how do the Brits swim in that?? We've had picnics. We have been to the aquarium, which was truly hypnotising (not just for baby). We've been to family barbecues..yes, barbecues in the UK! In Spring! Result! We have spent a fortune (oops, will think about that later!) But the most memorable moment was when we took Jazmín swimming for the very first time, in an actual warm baby pool (none of that in Almuñecar), and they allowed us to take photos! The changing room was well prepared for babies, so I was able to change relatively OK without taking my eyes off Jazmin. I was a little

apprehensive about her reaction to the pool, but she loved it! She lasted 30mins, then my breasts started to swell and she got a whiff of milk...so that was that. Breastfeeding her in the cafe was odd. I have to admit, in Spain I have never felt awkward getting my boob out to feed my precious princess, but in the UK I felt nothing but embarrassment...why is that? Isn’t it just a natural thing to do? Now it’s the end of the trip, and the time has just flown by. I also remember that Jazmín is supposed to be teething...where are the teeth then? There have been been no tears either -could the doc be wrong? Anyway, it's been great to catch up with some really special people. I've loved being with company every day and just enjoying being a Mummy. Does it really have to end? I guess so; I just hope that the flight back goes as swimmingly as the flight out... More next month!!

Seminars From The Devere Group

Spain´s new overseas assets reporting rules On 29th October 2012, Spain passed a new law (Ley 7/2012) requiring all residents to report on any assets held outside Spain exceeding €50,000. The report requires assets to be listed in one of three categories: bank accounts, investments, and property. If the total value of assets in any category exceeds the reporting limit, then all assets in that category must be reported. You must include assets where you are the owner, the beneficiary, or an authorised signatory. In 2013, the reporting period runs from 1st February to 30th April.

There are significant penalties for failure to report, including a fine of €5,000 per asset (with a minimum of €10,000), tax charged at income tax rates, and late payment interest on the taxes due. In a separate move, the UK are planning changes to their residency rule, making it clearer who is, and who is not, classed as UK resident. These changes are likely to be introduced in April 2013. To find out more about the new laws, and to hear ideas of how to structure your assets in the most tax efficient way, why not attend the deVere Group seminar in Competa on Thursday 7th March. See the advert below for further details.

NaturVets Raw diet for dogs and cats. When dogs and cats first adapted themselves to us thousands of years ago, they lived basically on scraps and what they hunted by themselves. 60 to 70 years ago, we started to feed them complete food, which was specially made for them. I was taught during vet-school -- and later through congresses and courses -- that feeding anything but a premium complete dog food (biscuits or canned) is the root to all evil, and that it is just a matter of time before the dogs and cats will die from perforated intestines, their teeth will fall out and they will suffer from all kind of diseases. Since we have started to use alternative medicine in our clinics, we have become interested in a more natural way of feeding the pets. Dogs and cats are carnivores. In nature, their diet mainly consists of protein (meat), but if you feed them with a complete dog or cat food, you should know that the main ingredient is carbohydrates (rice, oats, corn…). Often, you will find that the total protein content is under 20 per cent, and the origin of the protein source is not always clear. Consider, though, that the source of protein can be anything from sirloin to

chicken feathers -or even dead dogs, as we have seen recently! Even if the food you buy has got a high protein content, it might not be biologically available for the animal. At Naturvets, we therefore recommend you feed your pet on a raw diet; that way, you know exactly what you are giving them and it is not as complicated as you might think! Raw meaty bones, raw chicken carcasses, eggs, yogurt, fish and some nice leftovers will often do the trick. Dogs will also benefit from all sorts of vegetables and fruit. Cats can be a bit tricky to ‘educate,’ but give them time and have patience. Dogs, on the other hand, normally get excited by the change, and can´t wait for their next meal! The only few things you must NOT give are: cooked bones, onions and chocolate. See main advert below

Periana

Periana is situated north of the lake at Viñuela and has an excellent source of natural water which has made it attractive to settlers since prehistoric times. The nearby river Guaro provides water for the Pantano, or reservoir and the surrounding land is green and verdant providing a perfect climate for citrus fruit. The drive towards the village from Puente Don Manuel takes you up a mildly curving road where each bend brings new sights to delight even the most jaded of eyes. Gently rolling green hills sit below the sharply contrasting jagged grey mountains which tower above like sleeping giants. This village, like many within the Axarquía, has had its fair share of tragedy. In 1884 an earthquake destroyed many homes and took just under 60 lives, the phylloxera plague killed the vines and floods ravaged part of the area. However, the Periana we see today is a bustling village alive and well and blessed with the most fantastic views of La Viñuela reservoir and the distant coast at Torre del Mar. The village is famous for its peaches and its verdial olive oil. The peaches were introduced to Periana about 200 years ago by a local man who had brought some shoots back from his visit to Argentina. Once planted the orchards quickly multiplied thanks to the mild weather and fertile soil. Since around 1970, after growing methods were perfected, over 4 million kilos a year have been harvested and this succulent fruit has made Periana famous. The village is also famous for producing its local verdial olive oil. On the day I was there a

bus load of children were also visiting the Sociedad Cooperativa Olivarera San Isidro where the olives are pressed to make the strong and fruity, subtly yellow oil that people come from far and wide to buy right here from the cooperatives headquarters. A good time to visit Periana, if you love peaches, is during the Peach festival in June when an annual completion amongst chefs discovers the varied culinary dishes where peaches take pride of place! Or if Olive Oil is your pleasure don´t miss the Verdial Oil Day in April where this golden liquid is celebrated as it was by the Phoenicians, the Romans and the Nasrids. You can taste the oil whilst listening to pandas de verdiales. One cannot leave the village without a visit to the Church of San Isidro which dominates the skyline and can be seen from many rooftops. It was built after the 1884 earthquake and there is a marble plaque telling the story of this horrendous time when at 9pm on Christmas Day 106 villages were destroyed, 1,253 people were seriously injured and 736 people died. All the roads were blocked by snow making help difficult, but King Alfonso XII raised 6,455,097 pesetas to repair and rebuild homes and in the new Periana this parish church emerged in the Plaza Alfonso XII. However, bright, shiny and new then, this church with its Mudejar interior, single nave and two aisles, separated by pointed arches, is now in need of more funds to renovate and keep it in good repair. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in the village which also boast a helicopter landing pad! Just down the road are the Vilo thermal baths where the temperature remains a constant 21 degrees all year round, just the place to visit on a cold winters day!

The New Hybrid Car

87

$$$ Share’oscope $$$

Renault and Ford have joined forces to create the perfect small car for women.

Here is Mr. Share with some more share advice!

Mixing the Renault “Clio” and the Ford “Taurus” they have designed the “Clitaurus.” It comes in pink and the average male car thief won't be able to find it – let alone turn it on – even if someone tells him where it is and how to do it. Rumour has it, though, that it leaks transmission fluid once a month, and can be a real nightmare to start in the morning! Some have reported that on cold winter mornings, when you really need it, you can’t get it to turn over. New models are initially fun to own, but very costly to maintain and horribly expensive to get rid of. Used models may initially appear to have curb appeal and a low price, but eventually have an increased appetite for fuel and the curb weight typically increases with age. Manufacturers are baffled as to how the size of the trunk increases, but say that the paint may just make it LOOK bigger.

This month Mr. Moneybags has bought 833 shares in ITV @ 120p each.

This model is not expected to reach collector status. Most owners find it is best to lease one and replace it each year

After going through a tough spell, things are starting to improve and with the annual results due on the 27th Feb could see a further share price increase. Last months share Greggs bought at 463p now 495p

Profile Full Name: Naomi Campbell Birthday: 22 May 1970 age: 52 sign: Gemini Birthplace: Streatham, London Marital status: In a relationship with Russian businessman Vladislav Doronin Children: None Occupation: Super model Claim to fame: Super model Her mother was a Jamaican-born dancer called Valerie Morris. She has never met her father, who left before she was born. Naomi took the surname Campbell from her mother's second marriage. At five years old, Naomi was enrolled at the Barbara Speake Stage School, and five years later, entered the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts to study ballet. She made her first public appearance at the age of seven, featuring in the music video for Bob Marley's "Is This Love". She also played Snow White in two episodes of the Children's Film Foundation television series The Chiffy Kids. Naomi was ‘scouted’at the age of 15 while window-shopping in Covent Garden. Her career quickly took off—the following April, just before her 16th birthday, she appeared on the cover

She established herself among the top three most recognisable and in-demand models of the late 1980s and early 1990s, and was one of six models of her generation declared ‘supermodels’ by the fashion world of British Elle. Naomi’s personal relationships include affairs with boxer Mike Tyson, BadrJafar and actor Robert De Niro. In March 1991, Naomi starred as Michael Jackson's love interest in the music video for "In the Closet," and the following year, appeared in Madonna's controversial book “Sex” in a set of nude photos with Madonna and rapper Big Daddy Kane. In 1993, she fell on the catwalk in Vivienne Westwood's foot-high platform shoes, which were later displayed at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. She has a legendary temper. Between 1998 and 2008, she was accused ten times of committing acts of violence against employees, associates and even police officers. In 2008, Naomi pleaded guilty to assaulting two police officers at London Heathrow Airport.She had spit at the officers following an argument about her lost luggage. She was banned for life from British Airways. Elite Model Management, who had represented her since 1987, fired her in September 1993 on the grounds that "no amount of money or prestige could further justify the abuse" to staff and clients.Elite founder John Casablancas described her as "manipulative, scheming, rude, and impossible." In 1999, she entered rehab after a five-year addiction to cocaine. She is involved with several charitable causes, including the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, We Love Brazil and Fashion for Relief, which has reportedly raised £4.5 million.

Giving Something Back

KIM FROM ARKWRIGHTS – TANDEM PARACHUTE JUMP FOR CARLOS HAYA HOSPITAL.

Kim Edwards from Arkwrights in Puente don Manuel is doing a tandem parachute jump in order to collect money for the Carlos Haya Hospital in Malaga. As many of you who know Kim will know that Kim owes her life to the Hospital where they nursed her back to health in 2007. So on Sunday 24th March Kim will be off to Seville where she will be doing the Tandem Parachute Jump! Kim is hoping to raise lots of money to give something back to the Hospital where she spent many months. Please help Kim to help this Hospital, which in turn will help others, maybe even someone you know. This event will take place at Aerodromo La Juliana, Seville. Kim is briefed at 1pm on Sunday

24th March and will be jumping at around 1.30pm. For any other information please call into the shop where Kim can explain. So many people have shown an interest in attending that Kim is in the process of finding out how much a mini bus will cost if anyone is interested in watching this spectacular event. We estimate this would be around 10â‚Ź per person. Donations can be given to Kim at Arkwrights between 10am to 6.30pm Monday to Saturday. We at The Sentinella wish Kim every success and that she experiences one of the best times of her life!!

Way to go girlie! x

Love A Child Celebrates its 10th Birthday The Love A Child Foundation, based in Nerja, is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year and thanks to John Margetson, our volunteers and our wonderful supporters from all over the world, we have been able to help many children in Burma, Tibet and Ecuador. The Love A Child Foundation is an internationally-registered charity set up to support children, from poor areas of the world, who are refugees, abandoned, abused, exploited or orphaned. The foundation is a non-profit making organisation which aims to deliver more than 90 per cent of its income directly to the children. Strict control is kept over who handles the money and how it is spent. We have co-ordinators who monitor our projects in each country. The foundation has projects in Burma, Nepal, Ecuador and one working with Tibetan refugee children in India. In total, more than 8,595 children are cared for in the homes which we support. We strive to make sure that the children have a loving and caring environment in which

to grow up. Our aim is to find sponsors who will support a child and first of all, pay to give them somewhere to live, clothe and feed them; secondly, to offer them a solid education and finally, to deal with any healthcare issues which may arise. We have some children who, due to the economic situation, have lost their sponsor -such as Dicky Dolma, pictured here. She is eight years old, comes from Tibet and would love a bag in which to carry her books! General donations are put towards the development of homes and projects such as new dormitories, new toilets, teachers’ salaries, mosquito nets, school books, stationery and anything needed for the children. For example, a donation of £15 will buy five mosquito nets and will save lives. If you would like further information regarding sponsoring one of our children, or you would like to give a small donation or feel like having a small coffee morning to help us raise funds, please visit our website www.loveachildfoundation.com or contact Lynne on 952 515 224 and by email lynne@loveachildfoundation.com

Film iew erables RevLes Mis

Even those who are not devotes of musical theatre will find themselves emotionally manipulated by Working Title Films’ latest version of the novel turned Broadway sensation of Les Miserables. As a theatrical enterprise it was always about sweeping sentimentality. This film version is a particular tearjerker because of the live action singing and the excellent casting. Director Tom Hooper decided that all of the songs would be recorded live rather than lip sung during filming and added in post-production. This proved very effective. “I dreamed a Dream,” Fantine (Anne Hathaway’s) paean of loss, is delivered in its entirety, a capella, as a tight shot of Hathaway’s face. It’s fitting that her daughter has a power-

ful emotional connection to the role of mother who would do anything for her child. Yet, Hathaway gives complexity to a character that has previously only been portrayed as a martyr. Hathaway’s Fantine has sarcasm when she leads a sailor to her bed, prissiness when she defends herself against other factory workers, and sass when she rages against Jean Valjean for letting her be fired. The performance of Hugh Jackman, as Jean Valjean carries the film beyond its saccharine lyrics. The film opens with, “Overture/Work Song” as Valjean and fellow shackled prisoners are forced to labor like slaves. Jackman’s emaciated, tortured Valjean is the epitome of how much a man can bear before losing his humanity. We see him taken to the edge and led back, in a performance convincing enough to believe in Valjean’s otherwise dubious and seemingly endless quest for salvation. On the whole, if you silence your inner snob, and bring plenty of tissues, Les Miserables will bring you surprising pleasure. Star Rating: ****/*****

LT Construction Septic Tanks

pensive to rectify.

A septic tank generally consists of a tank (or sometimes more than one) of between 1000 and 7500 litres (1,000 and 2,000 gallons) in size connected to an inlet waste water pipe at one end and a septic field drain at the other. The design of the tank usually incorporates two or three chambers, each of which is equipped with a manhole cover to enable it to be emptied. The chambers are separated by means of a dividing wall which has openings located about midway between the floor and roof of the tank.

the main problems are: · The tank moving when it is not laid on a concrete base, causing the pipes to come apart.

Some systems require emptying every few years or sooner, while others may be able to go five or even 10 years between cleanings. Contrary to what many people believe, there is no “rule of thumb” for how often tanks should be emptied.

· If the vent is blocked, this may cause the gases to find their way back up the waste pipe and into the property.

Some older fincas in Spain have a “posa negra” or black hole, which is literally a hole in the ground. The waste is allowed to seep away into the soil. This is against EEC regulations and a proper tank needs to be installed. The issues associated with septic tanks are not many, but when they go wrong, they can be ex-

· If the tank is not emptied when necessary, the pipes can block, resulting in them needing either to be broken open or replaced. · The siting of the tank is important as the gases vented off can cause issues if the tank is too close to a house, or the prevailing wind is in the direction of a house.

Here in Andalucia, LT Construction has also pioneered the policy of adding an additional filtration tank for using the wastewater to irrigate the garden. If you would like to discuss these issues, call us today on 659 324 586 or visit our website at www.ltconstruction.es where you can see many examples of septic tanks.

Sound affects us deeply because it is one of our body’s own mechanisms for regulating biological processe. Sound therapy works on the principle of ‘sympathetic resonance’ – one vi-

brating object producing spontaneous movement in another. Everything in Nature vibrates and in the human being every bone, every organ and every tissue has a resonant frequency. Tuning forks have been in use for the past 30 years now as a healing modality and Anne will cover many aspects of this therapy, finishing with a practical demonstration. All are welcome to attend and further information can be obtained on 633 759988 or email: jennywright04@gmail.com Live Music with Mitch France - Wed 13th March Open Acoustic Music Session at the Teteria Hierbabuena.

) : a h a h s e k o J A lawyer and a senior citizen are sitting next to each other on a long flight. The lawyer is thinking that seniors are so dumb that he could get one over on them easily. So, the lawyer asks if the senior would like to play a fun game. The senior is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists, saying that the game is a lot of fun.... "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me only €5. Then you ask me one, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you €500," he says. This catches the senior's attention and, to keep the lawyer quiet, he agrees to play the game. The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the Earth to the Moon?" The senior doesn't say a word, but reaches into his pocket, pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer. Now, it's the senior's turn. He asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?" The lawyer uses his laptop to search all references he can find on the internet. He sends Emails to all the smart friends he knows; all to no avail. After an hour of searching, he finally gives up. He wakes the senior and hands him €500. The senior pockets the €500 and goes right back to sleep. The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the senior up and asks, "Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?" The senior reaches into his pocket, hands the lawyer €5, and goes back to sleep. ------------------------------------------------------------Stu died in a fire and his body was burned pretty badly. The morgue needed someone to identify the body, so they sent for his two best friends, Mick and Paddy. The three men had always done everything together. Mick arrived first, and when the mortician pulled back the sheet Mick said, 'Yup, his face is burned up pretty bad. You better roll him

over.' The mortician rolled him over and Mick said, 'Nope, ain't Stu.' The mortician thought this was rather strange. So he brought Paddy in to confirm the identity of the body. Paddy looked at the body and said, 'Yup, he's pretty well burnt up. Roll him over.' The mortician rolled him over and Paddy said, 'No, it ain't Stu.' The mortician asked, 'How can you tell?' Paddy said, 'Well, Stu had two arseholes.' 'What? He had two arseholes?' asked the mortician. 'Yup, we never seen 'em, but everybody used to say: There's Stu with them two arseholes.' ------------------------------------------------------------Three mischievous old grannies were sitting on a bench outside a nursing home when an old grandpa walked by. One of the old grandmas yelled out saying, "We bet we can tell exactly how old you are." The old man said, "There is no way you can guess it, you old fools." One of the old grandmas said, "Sure we can! Just drop your trousers and pants and we can tell your exact age." Embarrassed just a little, but anxious to prove they couldn't do it, he dropped his drawers. The grandmas asked him to first turn around a couple of times and to jump up and down several times. Then they all piped up and said, "You're 87 years old!" Standing with his pants down around his ankles, the old gent asked, "How in the world did you guess?" Slapping their knees and grinning from ear to ear, the three old ladies happily yelled in unison..."We were at your birthday party yesterday!" ------------------------------------------------------------I came out of the chip shop with a meat and potato pie, large chips, mushy peas & a jumbo sausage. A poor homeless man sitting there said “I've not eaten for two days.” I told him “I wish I had your will power.”

Jokes h a h a :) A married couple was in a terrible accident where the woman's face was severely burned. The doctor told the husband that they couldn't graft any skin from her body because she was too skinny. So the husband offered to donate some of his own skin. However, the only skin on his body that the doctor felt was suitable would have to come from his buttocks. The husband and wife agreed that they would tell no one about where the skin came from, and requested that the doctor also honor their secret. After all, this was a very delicate matter. After the surgery was completed, everyone was astounded at the woman's new beauty. She looked more beautiful than she ever had before! All her friends and relatives just went on and on about her youthful beauty! One day, she was alone with her husband, and she was overcome with emotion at his sacrifice. She said, "Dear, I just want to thank you for everything you did for me. There is no way I could ever repay you." "My darling," he replied, "think nothing of it. I get all the thanks I need every time I see your mother kiss you on the cheek." ------------------------------------------------------------An elderly couple was watching a Discovery Channel special about a West African bush tribe whose men all had penises 24 inches long. When the black male reaches a certain age, a string is tied around his penis and on the other end is a weight. After a while, the weight stretches the penis to 24 inches. Later that evening as the husband was getting out of the shower, his wife looked at him and said, "How about we try the African string-andweight procedure?" The husband agreed and they tied a string and a weight to his penis. A few days later, the wife asked the husband, "How is our little tribal experiment coming along?" "Well, it looks like we're about half way there," he replied. "Wow, you mean it's grown to 12 inches?" "No, it's turned black." ------------------------------------------------------------These three old ladies and their dogs were sit-

ting on a park bench having a quiet conversation when a flasher approached from across the park. The flasher came up to the ladies, stood right in front of them and opened his trench coat. Gertrude immediately had a stroke. Then Maude also had a stroke. But Tillie, being older and more feeble, couldn't reach that far. ------------------------------------------------------------After queuing up at the Tesco checkout this morning, Mr Patel said to the cashier, "Can you do this any cheaper?" "I'm afraid not," she replied, "If we did it for you then we'd have to do it for everybody." Mr Patel said, "Yeah, but it's got today's date on it. If nobody buys it then it's just going to get thrown away." "Look sir, you're holding up the queue. Do you want the newspaper or not?!"

Stevie the Scouse section A Primary School Teacher explains to her class that she is a Liverpool fan. She asks her students to raise their hands if they too are Liverpool fans. Everyone in the class raises their hand except one boy called Callum. The teacher looks at the boy with surprise and says, 'Callum, why didn't you raise your hand?' 'Because I'm not a Liverpool fan,' he replied. The teacher, still shocked, asked, 'Well, if you are not a Liverpool fan, then who are you a fan of?' 'I am a Chelsea fan, and proud of it,' Callum replied. The teacher could not believe her ears. 'Callum, why, pray tell, are you a Chelsea fan?' 'Because my mum is a Chelsea fan, and my dad is a Chelsea fan, so I'm a Chelsea fan too!' 'Well,' said the teacher in an obviously annoyed tone, 'that is no reason for you to be a Chelsea fan. You don't have to be just like your parents all of the time... What if your mum was a prostitute and your dad was a drug addict, what would you be then?' 'Then,' Callum smiled, 'I'd be a Liverpool fan.
