Anyone who knows me will know that I live in a one-bed apartment in a little seaside town called El Morche (near Torrox Costa). But what may shock you is that I have lived here for not just a few years, or even five, but eight sunglowing years! So I’ve reached the conclusion that it’s time to move on to pastures new. I have no idea yet where my new abode will be located, or even if I will stay living here in Spain, but I’ll see what direction the Universe pushes (or pulls) me. Now, I like to do things in the reverse order, so last weekend I scuttled off to Ikea to purchase some beautifully decorated storage boxes, and I’ve already filled them up with all my knick knacks, happily throwing out a load as I went, and bagging some up to offload to the nearest charity shop. The amount of junk I had accumulated over an eight year period astonished me to the core and most of it I couldn’t care less if I ever see again or not. So what now you may be wondering? Well now I wait. The energy is now moving so soon I will be too! The Universe has received its request, I’m acting as if I already have a place to move into, which means that the place will soon show up. And for anyone who is interested in purchasing a wonderfully maintained, fully furnished, onebed apartment across the road from the sandy beach of El Morche, do get in touch. It is up for sale at a remarkably low price and it makes an ideal starter home as it is 2 minutes from the beach and within easy access of Nerja, Torrox Costa and Torre del Mar.

Strange News

The truth is I have really enjoyed living in my apartment and even now I do feel slightly sad at the prospect of giving it up moving on, but the time has come for me to get a bigger place so I can spread my wings and fly...

Snake fright An Australian pilot had the fright of his life when a snake popped out from his dashboard and crawled down his leg. Braden Blennerhassett made a mayday call declaring: "We've got a snake on board", before making an emergency landing at Darwin.

So if any of you have any ideas, I really mean it…get in touch and let me know! Maybe you have the perfect little place for me to buy or rent at a special price. Or maybe you know someone else who does. All ideas welcome – just email me at – I’d advise against calling as I don’t often answer my phone…. The idea of moving is turning into an exciting adventure as I really do have no idea where I’m going yet. Although America appeals… Wish me luck :)

The freakish incident, above the Northern Territory, was immediately likened to the cult Samuel L Jackson 2006 film Snakes on a Plane. The snake, believed to have been a non-venomous golden tree snake, was reportedly chasing a tree frog that had stowed away under the front passenger seat. When the plane landed, ground crew tried to lure it out with a mouse, but it seemed to have disappeared. Super scooter A Lincolnshire plumber has souped up a Sinclair C5 and turned it into a monster bike that can go more than 40mph. Colin Furze, 32, spent two weeks upgrading the electric three-wheeler into a petrol-powered machine, which towers five feet off the ground. He has a track record for creating wacky vehicles - previously building the world's fastest mobility scooter, the world's longest motorbike and a flame-throwing scooter. Mr Furze souped-up the slow Sinclair by fitting it to the frame of an old Honda bike, then added giant two-feet tall wheels.

"I've taken a bike that was banned in the 1980s and a rubbish old electric car and made a machine which looks really cool," he said. "It can go pretty fast, but it's very scary as you're driving five feet off the ground and it's really top heavy and rather unstable." The original Sinclair C5, designed by Sir Clive Sinclair, was the first electric vehicle designed for mass production but it was a flop when it was released in 1985.

De Cotta - New Employment Law Mortgage foreclosures – the facts you need to know by Javier Florido Martin, Lawyer with De Cotta Law. The Spanish Government recently approved a Royal Decree that aims to prevent banks evicting home owners who find themselves unable to maintain their mortgage payments. Under the new law, there are three main ways to address the issue of mortgage arrears, the threat of foreclosure by the bank and eviction: - Firstly, the bank must offer debt restructuring, including a grace period on capital repayments for up to four years; extending the term of the loan to 40 years and a reduction in the interest rate to Euribor + 0.25%. - Secondly, if despite this the mortgage holder still cannot cope with the revised mortgage payments; the bank may offer a reduction to the mortgage. The amount of this reduction will

be calculated on a case-by-case basis. - Thirdly, if the restructuring and reduction are not enough, the mortgage holder may be eligible to cancel the mortgage by giving the property back to the bank. This is known in Spain as ‘dación en pago’, or ‘payment in kind’ and is also possible in other countries such as the United States (in lieu of foreclosure) but not the UK. Under this solution, the debtor can continue living in the house by paying a monthly rent equal to 3% of the debt. If rental payments are not met this would lead to automatic eviction. In principle the mortgage holder can keep living in the rental property for a period of two years, but can then apply to extend this period. It should be noted that not everyone can benefit from these measures. Mortgage holders must meet several requirements including that all family members are unemployed, owning only the one house, and that the mortgage payments exceed 60% of family income. In addition to qualify for becoming a tenant, the assessed property value must not exceed 120,000, 150,000, 180,000 or 200,000 euro (depending on the population of the city where the property is located). Although the scheme outlined in this new Royal Decree is not obligatory, to date most Savings and Retail Banks have joined the scheme.

Batteries For Remote Controls Charge — don’t recharge! If you look around the front room, or wherever you normally watch your TV, you will probably find a heap of remote handsets - all of which require batteries. When you replace these batteries, though, be careful that you are not using rechargeable ones. “Why not?” you might ask. “I have been using them for years!” Well, there is a simple explanation. The standard rechargeable battery can only reach a maximum charge of 1.2 volts, whereas a standard alkaline non-rechargeable battery is at 1.5 volts at the time you put it in the item. In most cases, the handset requires

two batteries linked in series to produce a total of three volts. If you use rechargeable batteries, then there is only a total of 2.4 volts. All remote controls require the maximum voltage in order to operate correctly. If you are having problems with the operation of your remote controls, change the batteries don’t just press harder! Average battery life in your remotes should be as much as 12 to 18 months, using the correct ones. Many other devices, such as cameras, are designed to operate at differing voltages and suitable rechargeable batteries are then supplied with the equipment. For advice please call Sat.Co on 657484853.

The word yellow is used to describe everything from sunshine to jaundice, and is one of the oldest colour words used in the English language. In fact, the oldest written use of the Anglo-Saxon word is found in the epic poem Beowulf, which was penned in Old English sometime between the 8th and 11th century. The unknown author used it to describe a shield carved from yew wood.

The colour yellow is believed to stimulate mental processes and the nervous system, activate memory and encourage communication. In healing, yellow is the colour of the Solar Plexus Chakra, also known as Manipura. This chakra is located in the stomach area. It is linked to the stomach, liver, skin, large intestine, muscular system, and solar plexus area, and is representative of vitality. When it is open, it will act to empower a person and help them find their personal strength. It will help

dreams turn and goals into reality. During the tenth in century the France, doors of traitors and criminals were painted yellow. Yellow is psychologically the happiest colour in the colour spectrum. It is the traditional colour associated with natives of Lincolnshire – who are known as Yellowbellies. The exact derivation of this is unknown, but one explanation is that a Lincolnshire lady, whose canary died, replaced it with a frog with a yellow belly, in the belief that the frog would sing like the canary. She allegedly said to it, "Now sing, yellow belly." People carry or wear yellow gemstones to promote the ability to express themselves. They are excellent stones for writers and public speakers to increase eloquence.

A Cut Above The Rest

Peluqueria Susana

If you live in the Vinuela area and have not yet visited Susanna’s Hair Salon in Venta Baja, then it is time you discovered this hidden gem!

The salon is owned and run by Susanna — a local Spanish girl. She doesn’t speak very much English but she certainly understands enough to give you the most amazing hair experience, regardless of whether you are male or female, or want something simple or more complicated. From the moment you step into her salon, you are met by a warm welcome and friendly smile. If you ask her, she may even produce a cup of coffee, which is quite rare in Spanish salons!

Susanna offers much more than just hair care, though — you can also spoil yourself with a wide variety of other treatments such as manicures and pedicures. To add to this, she also has a little boutique-type shop which sells nail varnishes, perfumes and small gifts, among other things, and all are offered at reasonable prices. If you are also trying to learn Spanish, then it makes even more sense to come along and have some free lessons from Susanna while you are having the full hair care experience. I don’t think you will be disappointed!

Idiotic Acts Unbelievable!!!! My daughter and I went through the McDonald's driveway window and I gave the cashier a 5€ note. Our total was 4.25€ so I also handed her 25c. She said, 'You gave me too much money.' I said,'Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a euro coin back.' She sighed and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request. I did so, and he handed me back the 25c, and said 'We're sorry but we don't do that kind of thing.' The cashier then proceeded to give me back 75 cents in change. Do not confuse the people at MacD's. ------------------------------------------------------------My daughter went to a Mexican takeaway and ordered a taco. She asked the person behind the counter for 'minimal lettuce..' He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg lettuce. From Bankstown, Sydney... ------------------------------------------------------------I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked,

'Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?' To which I replied, 'If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?' He smiled knowingly and nodded, 'That's why we ask.' ------------------------------------------------------------When my husband and I arrived at a car dealership to pick up our car after a service, we were told the keys had been locked in it. We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver's side door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked. 'Hey,' I announced to the technician, 'its open!' His reply, 'I know. I already did that side.' ------------------------------------------------------------Very very interesting, scientifically proven... You cannot stick your tongue out and look up at the ceiling at the same time, a physical impossibility. You didn’t try it.. did you?

As a man, scare easily.. don't I me so much scared But she I dropped My electric shaver, Which knocked The meat pie

Out of my other hand. In all the confusion of trying To straighten out the car Using my knees against The steering wheel, It knocked My Mobile phone Away from my ear Which fell Into the coffee Between my legs, Which splashed, And burned "Big Jim and the Twins", Ruined the phone, Soaked my trousers, And disconnected an Important call.

Hornets are perhaps one of the most bothersome groups of insects — no barbecue in Spain would be complete without at least one of these ‘mini-helicopters’ putting in an unwanted appearance! Hornets are widely known as "social insects" They belong to the genus Vespa family of wasps. They are considered as omnivorous bugs. Hornets only live for one season, except for a young queen with its fertilised eggs which is able to find a warm place for the winter. The name of their group is a grist or hive.

Although most of the hornets' territories are found in tropical Asia, they can also be found in Africa, North America and Europe. Hornets make their hives by chewing up wood a make to translucent construction mash. The only hornet females capable of reproducing are the queens hence, they control the hornet hives. Most hornets are androgynous feworkers. male They are only capable of performing indispensable community tasks such as gathering food, constructing the hive, feeding the young and securing the colony.

sponsibilities of the new hive and leave the queen in the hive to reproduce.

hornets Worker protect their hive powerful with stingers.

The queen expands the hive by reproducing more workers and before she dies, she provides a new breeding generation of hornet queens and drones.

There are only a few male hornets – called drones -and they only have one major responsibility, to mate with the queen hornets. They die soon afterwards.

Hornets usually feed on tree juices, but they also eat other insects such as bees and flies.

Hornets usually bring their eggs with them when relocating. The queen begins a new nest during the spring. As soon as the young become capable of doing some tasks, they take over the re-

They don’t usually sting humans unless they are provoked. If they have built a nest near humans, they will sting if they feel their hive is threatened. Hornets are at their most aggressive if they find their nest has been destroyed. A hornet's sting can cause a serious reaction in people who are allergic to its venom. A hornet can measure up to 2 inches in length. The European hornet was established by human beings.

Recipe Of The Month sauté them, turning once, until they are golden

This Coquilles Saint-Jacques recipe is traditionally served on little scallop shells, but ovenproof ramekins are a great substitution. It features scallops and mushrooms, sautéed in butter with seasonings, and then made even richer with a Gruyere and breadcumb topping. Coquilles Saint-Jacques is most often eaten as a first course, or appetizer, but can be used as a delicious seafood entrée. Prep time: 20 minutes - Cook time: 30 minutes - total time: 50 minutes ingredients: • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour • 3/4 teaspoon salt • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper • 1 1/2 pounds sea scallops • 4 tablespoons butter • 8 ounces mushrooms, cleaned and sliced • 1 cup chopped onion • 2/3 cup dry white wine • 2 tablespoons Cognac • 3 tablespoons bread crumbs • 2 tablespoons butter, melted • 1/3 cup grated Gruyere cheese • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Preparation: Mix the flour, salt, curry powder, and cayenne pepper together in a large bowl. Add the scallops to the bowl and toss the mixture together until the scallops are completely coated in the spiced flour mixture. Melt the butter in a large skillet over mediumhigh heat. Add the scallops to the butter and

brown on both sides, about 4 minutes; transfer the scallops to a plate and cover to keep warm. Add the mushrooms and onions to the skillet and sauté, stirring frequently, over mediumhigh heat for 4 minutes, until they start to turn light brown. Add the white wine to the pan and scrape the bottom of the pan with a metal spatula to get all the brown bits off the pan and into the sauce. Reduce the heat slightly and simmer until the sauce has reduced by half. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the Cognac and scallops. Preheat the grill. Divide the scallop and sauce mixture between 6 scallop shells or small ovenproof serving dishes. Mix together the bread crumbs, melted butter, and Gruyere cheese; divide and spoon the mixture evenly over each dish of scallops. Place the dishes about 5-6 inches from the grill and cook until the scallop mixture is hot, bubbly, and browned on top. Sprinkle with lemon juice and serve immediately.

You’re As Old As You Look Have you ever been guilty of looking at others your own age and thinking, surely I can't look that old? Well... you'll love this one! My name is Alice Smith and I was sitting in the waiting room for my first appointment with a new dentist. I noticed his dental diploma, which bore his full name. Suddenly, I remembered a tall, handsome, dark haired boy with the same name had been in my secondary school class some 30-odd years ago. Could he be the same guy that I had a secret crush on, way back then? Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, grey haired man with the deeply lined face was far too old to have been my classmate. After he examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended Morgan Park Secondary school.

'Yes, yes I did. I'm a Morganner!' he beamed with pride. 'When did you leave to go to college?' I asked, he answered, in 1965. Why do you ask?' 'You were in my class!' I exclaimed. He looked at me closely, then the ugly, OLD, BALD, WRINKLED, FAT ARSED, GREY HAIRED, DECREPIT, B****** ASKED.. "WHAT DID YOU TEACH ???"

Once you accept that you actually can’t stop time, you can relax, take things easier and enjoy life. Part of the enjoyment of this acceptance is deciding what you’ll do on your birthdays, exactly just how you will celebrate a special day. Saving the special treats for your 40th, 50th, 60th and long into the future. Perhaps a holiday, a cruise even... let yourself be waited on hand and foot. Perhaps a hot air balloon trip, a day in bed or how about... A 5 kilometre run, A 10 kilometre bicycle ride, 10 kilometres on a cross trainer, 5 kilometres on a rowing machine, 500 sit-ups, 500 leg presses, 500 bicep curls, 500 bench presses, 500 squats and 500 thigh extensions... and ALL to be completed in 5 hours. I have it on the highest authority that the medical term for this condition is commonly known as ‘Barking Mad’, unless, of course, you are undertaking this huge effort to raise money for charity. Just so with Angela from Buy/Rent a Home Spain in Torre del Mar who has agreed to undertake this mountain of a task to raise much needed money for Cancer Research, The Heart Foundation and Premature Babies. To match Angela’s effort, we are asking The Sentinella readers to help raise as much money as possible to make this a memorable day for everyone concerned. At just 50 cents per task all ten will cost the sponsor just 5€, a small amount to help change someone’s life and reward a very courageous woman for a superb unselfish effort. Angela’s challenge will take place on the 25th May at the Sensei Gym Torre del Mar, and there’s an open invitation for The Sentinella readers to join in on all or part of the challenge and help Angela raise much needed funds for three worthwhile charities. As to the question of which particular birthday Angela is celebrating, well, she’s not at liberty to say, and for this correspondent it’s a step too far to ask!

Classic One Liners! He is not with us any more but his humour lives on... Some of Frank Carson’s one liners. The Grim Reaper came for me last night, and I beat him off with a Vacuum cleaner. Talk about Dyson with death. Paddy says "Mick, I'm thinking of buying a Labrador." "Really,..." says Mick "Have you seen how many of their owners go blind?" I woke up last night to find the ghost of Gloria Gaynor standing at the foot of my bed. At first I was afraid... then I was petrified. The wife has been missing a week now. Police said to prepare for the worst. So I have been to the charity shop to get all her clothes back. A mate of mine recently admitted to being addicted to brake fluid. When I quizzed him on it he reckoned he could stop any time. I went to the cemetery yesterday to lay some flowers on a grave. As I was standing there I noticed 4 grave diggers walking about with a


coffin, 3 hours later and they're still walking about with it. I thought to myself, they've lost the plot.... My daughter asked me for a pet spider for her birthday, so I went to our local pet shop and they were £70! "Blow this," I thought, "I can get one cheaper off the web." Statistically, 6 out of 7 dwarves are not happy. I was at a cash point yesterday when a little old lady asked if I could check her balance, so I pushed her over. I start a new job in Seoul next week. I thought it was a good Korea move. I was driving this morning when I saw an R A C van parked up. The driver was sobbing uncontrollably and looked very miserable. I thought to myself, "That guy's heading for a breakdown." On holiday recently in Spain I saw a sign that said 'English speaking Doctor' - I thought, 'What a good idea, why don't we have them in our country?'

Cútar is a small village perched on the side of a hill, as the crow flies directly below the much larger town of Comares, although to drive there takes about 20 minutes along a track from behind the church leading up into La Alqueria. It is above Benamargosa and El Borge which are its closest neighbours and a 20 minute drive to Vélez-Málaga. It is part of the Route of the Raisin and the village is known as the Fountain of Paradise, Fuente del Paraiso from the arab word Kautzar, because of the twelve springs within the town. The village is surrounded by vine covered hills and as you drive the 6 kilometres up the winding road from Benamargosa it remains hidden in the folds of the mountains until you round the last bend at klm 5 where all you can see is Comares towering up into the sky, then suddenly the white oasis of Cútar appears, a mountainous Atlantis majestically rising from the depths below. A joy to behold, this jewel of a town sparkles in the sunlight as you drive down into the entrance to the village where the first sight that beholds you is the beautifully restored fountain, the Aina Alcaharia which used to be an Arab

Property Of The Month

Chapel before converting to a water well and fountain, the only surviving Arab Fountain of its kind in Málaga province. There are steep steps behind it that lead up to the ancient bridge that crosses a little gorge. Cútar is proud of its Moorish roots and goes back in time to the fifteenth century to celebrate the Monfí Festival where you can experience the smells, tastes and music of that era. Each October during the second weekend, the narrow streets and main car park become a traditional souk where food, drink, clothes and other items can be purchased from sales people dressed in traditional arab costume. There are belly dancers, falconry displays and street entertainment, an arab tent selling mint tea and culinary delights. Homes are opened as museums showing many items of the past, traditional methods of weaving, paintings and pictures, old photographs of the village in bygone days. There is a Moorish arch known as the Algorfa with a house situated above it. At the top, western side of Cútar sits the 16th century Church of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación dominating the village with its beautiful Baroque side chapel. It was originally known as Our Lady of the Angels and was built over an Arab mosque. If you haven´t yet visited Cútar I can highly recommend it as being one of the few remaining virtually untouched, traditional white villages.

Honesty The Best Policy? Golf ethics question for you. What if you were playing in the Club Championship Tournament Finals and the match was halved at the end of 17 holes. You had the honour and hit your ball a modest two hundred & fifty yards to the middle of the fairway, leaving a simple six iron to the pin. Your opponent then hits his ball, lofting it deep into the woods to the right of the fairway. Being the golfing gentleman that you are, you help your opponent look for his ball. Just before the permitted five minute search period ends, your opponent says: "Go ahead and hit your second shot and if I don't find it in time, I'll concede the match." You hit your ball, landing it on the green, stopping about ten feet from the pin. About the time your ball comes to rest, you hear your opponent exclaim from deep in the woods: "I found it!". The second sound you hear is a click, the sound of a club striking a ball and the ball comes sailing out of the woods and lands on the green, stopping no more than six inches from the hole. Now here is the ethical dilemma: Do you pull the cheating bastard’s ball out of your pocket and confront him with it or do you keep your mouth shut?

Profile Name: Ivana Zelníčková Birthday: 20th February, 1949, age: 63 sign: Pisces Birthplace: Gottwaldov, Czechoslovakia (now Zlín, Czech Republic). Marital status: married four times, to Alfred Winklmayr (1971-76), Donald Trump (197792), Riccardo Mazzucchelli (1995-97) and Rossano Rubicondi (2008-09) Children: 3, Donald John Jr, Ivanka Marie and Eric Occupation: A successful fashion model Claim to fame: Her marriage to multi-millionaire Donald Trump Ivana’s father encouraged her ambitions as a skier, and she won her first race at the age of six.

In 1976 she divorced Winklmayr, left Syrovatka and moved to New York to promote the Montreal Olympics. It was here that she met Donald J. Trump, son of prominent real estate developer Fred Trump. They married in April 1977. Ivana and Donald worked together on several massive projects, including the construction of the Grand Hyatt Hotel, the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and the Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. In 1991, Ivana filed for divorce, following the discovery that Donald had been having an affair with former beauty queen Marla Maples. After settling out of court following her father’s death – Donald attended the funeral with her - Ivana allegedly received $20 million, the $14 million family estate in Connecticut, a $5 million housing allowance, $350,000 annual alimony, all of her jewellery and 49 per cent of Mar-ALago, the family home in Palm Beach which also serves as a private club for the Palm Beach elite. Ivana has also written several bestselling books including the novels For Love Alone Lucy Wilkins and Free to Love, and the selfhelp book The Best is Yet to Come: Coping with Divorce and Enjoying Life Again. Two years ago, Ivana was thrown off a plane after launching a foul-mouthed tirade at noisy children on her flight to New York from Palm Beach. She says her hobby is buying and restoring homes in the best locations in the world.

She married Austrian skier Alfred Winklmayr so she could travel outside the Communist Bloc without being thought of as a defector. She was selected for the Czechoslovak Olympic Ski Team in 1972. She earned a master's degree in physical education from Charles University of Prague. In 1975, Ivana left Czechoslovakia for Canada to be with a childhood friend, George Syrovatka, who owned a ski boutique there. For the following two years she lived in Montreal

LT Construction the drive being undermined. All too often, the reinforcing is inadequate for the traffic on the drive. Avoid using substandard concrete mix, as it will lead to the break-up of the driveway after only a few years.

Printed concrete drives Printed concrete drives can look very attractive when finished correctly. The driveway doesn’t need to be straight and regular, but can flow with the contours of the land. Islands and flowerbeds can also be incorporated to add features. They are prepared in the same way as a standard concrete drive. As with all construction work, preparation of the land is key to ensuring the longevity of the build. Drains or gullies should be given a lot of consideration in order to avoid water erosion and

A wet mix is applied to the reinforced concrete base, a coloured die is applied to the wet mix and a rubber stamp is then used to imprint the design into the concrete. A silicon compound is applied to seal the colour and reduce bleaching. Various effects and colours can be selected, depending on personal choice. Expansion lines are cut into the drive to relieve the pressure of expanding concrete during the hot summer period. Various examples of printed concrete drives can be seen on Let LT Construction help with the design and build of your printed driveway.

The film adaptation of the first of Suzanne Collins’ three Hunger Games novels arrives with the most sure-shot appeal of any non-sequel since Twilight. The Hunger Games takes place in a post-apocalyptic America. All that remains of the United States is Panem, a 12-district federation headed by cagey President Snow (Donald Sutherland). Capitol, Panem’s central city, is home to a wealthy, decadent elite, whose comforts and high-tech toys are supported by the labour of an impoverished majority. It’s a social

Having crushed a broad rebellion some 74 years ago, the government reasserts its authority over the population by staging the annual Hunger Games, a sort of gladiatorial competition-cum-reality TV show: 24 teenagers – one boy and one girl from each district – are abandoned in a wilderness from which only one will be allowed to emerge alive. Among this year’s contestants is tough Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) from the poorest region of all: District 12, a coal-mining area that looks a whole lot like 1930s Appalachia. Will Katniss survive? Will she be able to avoid killing Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), the other District 12 entrant, for whom she may be developing romantic feelings? Will the sun rise tomorrow?

Charity Walk A Success


De Cotta Law’s St. Patrick’s Day sponsored Charity Walk raised 1.537,15€!

Medical Update American Medical Association researchers have made a remarkable discovery. It seems that some patients needing blood transfusions may benefit from receiving chicken blood rather than human blood. It tends to make the men cocky and the women lay better.

The walk was held on Saturday 17th March from Frigliana to Nerja, with everyone later enjoying a paella lunch and glass of Guinness on the beach. De Cotta Law, the firm of Spanish Abogados and English Solicitors dedicated to the international community in Nerja, sponsored a St Patrick’s Day Charity Sponsored Walk. Funds raised were distributed between: • Cudeca Foundation, the Cancer Hospice on the Costa del Sol • St Michael’s Anglican Church Roof Fund (Iglesia de San Miguel) in Plaza Andalucía • The Nerja Donkey Sanctuary The 3 hour walk was downhill and ended with a paella lunch and glass of Guinness at Merendero Pepe Mesa on Playa Playazo, together with charity raffle.

The Word Queen Getting Book Reviews An effective offline method of publicising and advertising your books to sell even more copies, is via book reviews To have a chance at selling lots of copies of your book on Amazon, you’ll need lots of book reviews. Bagging lots of book reviews is a vital ingredient of your marketing plan for the following reasons. 1. Book reviews raise awareness about your book. Readers who read book reviews do so because they are interested in buying books. 2. Book reviews provide information about your book that readers can use to make a decision.

see excerpts of book reviews with media kits to help them determine which books to stock. A well-written, but bad review, will still point out some good things about your book. 5. Book reviews provide feedback. While a single review is only one person’s opinion, if the same things pop up in multiple reviews, authors will be made aware of potential problems, which they can take action to rectify. Next month look out for a two-step method that I recommend you follow in order to get book reviews! Love & Light The Word Queen xx

3. Book reviews provide immediate access to your book. Most book review sites raise money through affiliate programs, so most will include an Amazon affiliate link with your review. 4. Book reviews provide credibility for your book. Many libraries and bookstores expect to

Barbecues Barbecuing during the summer months is a tradition that many people look forward to all year long. Between the great food, good company and casual atmosphere, it's no wonder that barbecues are popular. Now that the weather is warm, it's time to host your own summer barbecue. By following these tips, you'll be able to host a party that your friends and family will be talking about for years to come. You'll want to start your barbecue off right by planning it for a good time and day. Saturdays are a great day to host a barbecue, and you'll want to plan it for a time of day where it's not too hot. While

lunchtime barbecues give you more time to hang out with your guests, it can be hot during that time of day. In Spain anytime from 4pm to 5pm is a good time to start a barbecue, especially during the summer months when it gets dark late at night. Send out invitations, or make calls if you've prefer to be less formal. If all of your guests are web savvy, try using an electronic invitation like those available at This way you'll be able to take a running inventory of who will be coming and who won't be able to attend. Make sure to have a backup date just in case you have some unexpected rain or the weather gets too hot.

Barbecues Barbecue potlucks are very popular. If you decide to make your party a potluck, make sure to assign food to people. Generally, one side dish or dessert per person is expected. As the host or hostess, you should provide the meat and drinks. Think about your guests' likes and dislikes when it comes to your food choices. For a large group, hamburgers and hot dogs work well. Smaller groups would appreciate steak or chicken. Make sure to offer some grilled vegetables or veggie burgers if there are vegetarians in the group. Activities are always popular at barbecues. Pools make for a lot of fun at summer gatherings, but if you don't have a pool there is still plenty that you can do to entertain your guests. Depending on the ages of the group that you are hosting, you can arrange anything from a (controlled) water balloon fight

to classic outdoor games such as croquet or badminton. Make sure to plan ahead for the comfort of your guests. If you won't have enough chairs or tables for everyone, rent some extras or ask guests to bring them. You can also provide for their comfort by placing citronella candles around your garden to ward off mosquitoes. Placing them around the perimeter of your garden will help keep the space bug free as the sun starts to go down. Hosting a summer barbecue is a breeze if you plan ahead and keep your guests at the center of your plans. Getting together with family and friends in our backyard is a great way to create terrific memories that will last for years to come. Just follow these simple steps and you'll have a party to remember.

Sometimes called 'acupuncture for rooms', the ancient oriental system of Feng Shui is a way of harmonising and balancing the energy within our homes and workspaces. As much as coaching is a tool that helps us reach our goals, Feng Shui is a tool that helps clarify them. Using Feng Shui, we can improve our relationships with family and friends, enhance our finances, find romance and discover our true path in life. Jean has been studying, practising and teaching Western/Intuitive Feng Shui for over 25 years in London, Barcelona and Andalucia. All are welcome to join us for this interesting subject and further details can be obtained from either Jenny or Jean, 951 321 613 or 633 759 988 or 951 893 091.

s n g i S r Sta Your star signs for the month of May with The Sentinella’s very own Mystic Mag… Capricorn – There are some days when getting up in the morning is the wrong thing to do. This is a month where you will have more than your fair share of these days. Lucky sign – There is no lucky sign for you this month Aquarius – Have you ever thought about buying a boomerang? If you don’t like the idea of a boomerang, buy a kite instead and fly it high in the sky. Lucky sign – A box of PG Tips Pisces – Something fishy is going on this month and you’re determined to get to the bottom of it. Put on your detective hat and do some research. Lucky sign – A dishelleved mop head Aries – You’re feeling in a generous mood and more than one beggar is going to be laughing as you dish out the coins. Just make sure you hold onto the notes! Lucky sign – A yappy dog Taurus – Who ate all the pies? Go easy on your over indulgence tendencies this month or you may find yourself piling on those pounds. Lucky sign – A full moon Cancer – “Ha! Told you so.” This is what you will find yourself saying to a partner or acquaintance when you realise you were right. You just can’t help yourself!

Lucky sign – An empty Eroski bag Gemini – Watch your Ps and Qs this month, as no one likes a rude and arrogant person. Look up the word ‘polite’ in a dictionary and read the explanation carefully. Lucky sign – Sunflower seed shells Leo – Mind the pennies this month, as you may soon find the coffers are running dry as a result of your huge spending sprees. Calm it Kermit! Lucky sign –A pile of red bricks Virgo – The cat sat on the mat and the mat got dirty. Go and buy a new mat and this time don’t let the cat sit on it. Lucky sign – Why, a new mat of course! Libra – You’re missing your rellies so book a flight back to the UK to see them. Warning: Don’t go for the cheapest or you won’t get a free drink. Lucky sign – A madman ranting Scorpio – You may receive a fright this month when something or someone pops up out of the blue. Be extra aware! Lucky sign – A madman ranting Sagittarius – If you’re finding it difficult to get to grip with the Spanish language maybe it’s because you haven’t yet mastered English. Lucky sign – A roofless finca And if it’s your Birthday this month... It proves one thing. You’re still alive!!

) : a h a h s e k o J A man checks into a hotel in Blackpool while on a business trip and was a bit lonely. He thought of one of those girls you see advertised in phone boxes, so he popped out to into a phone box near the hotel and found an ad for a girl calling herself ‘Erogonique’, a lovely girl, bending over in the photo. She had all the right curves in all the right places, beautiful long wavy hair, long graceful legs... Well, you get the picture! He copied the phone number and returned to his hotel. When back in the room he figures, what the hell, give her a call. 'Hello', the woman says. Gosh, she sounded sexy so he continues... 'Hi, I hear you give a great massage and I'd like you to come to my room and give me one. No, wait, I should be straight with you. I'm in town all alone and what I really want is sex. I want it hard, I want it hot, and I want it now. Bring implements, toys, rubber leather, whips, everything you've got in your bag of tricks. Tie me up, cover me in chocolate syrup and whipped cream, anything you want! Now, how does that sound? She says, 'That sounds fantastic love, but you need to press 9 for an outside line.' --------------------------------------------------------------Paddy had been drinking at his local Dublin pub all day and most of the night celebrating St Patrick's Day. Mick, the bartender says, 'You'll not be drinking anymore tonight, Paddy'. Paddy replies, 'OK Mick, I'll be on my way then.' Paddy spins around on his stool and steps off. He falls flat on his face. 'Shoite' he says and pulls himself up by the stool and dusts himself off. He takes a step towards the door and falls flat on his face. 'Shoite, Shoite !' He looks to the doorway and thinks to himself that if he can just get to the door and some fresh air he'll be fine. He belly crawls to the door and shimmies up to the door frame. He sticks his head outside and takes a deep breath of fresh air, feels much better and takes a step out onto the pavement and falls flat on his face. 'Bi' Jesus.... I'm fockin' focked,' he says

He can see his house just a few doors down, and crawls to the door, hauls himself up the door frame, opens the door and shimmies inside. He takes a look up the stairs and says 'No fockin' way'. He crawls up the stairs to his bedroom door and says 'I can make it to the bed'. He takes a step into the room and falls flat on his face. He says 'Fock it' and falls into bed. The next morning, his wife, Jess, comes into the room carrying a cup of coffee and says, 'Get up Paddy. Did you have a bit to drink last night?' Paddy says, 'I did, Jess. I was fockin' pissed. But how'd you know?' 'Mick phoned . . .. You left your wheelchair at the pub.' --------------------------------------------------------------A young man moved out from home and into a new apartment, all of his own. He went proudly down to the lobby to put his name on his mailbox. While there, a stunning young blonde lady came out of the apartment next to the mailboxes, wearing only a robe. The boy smiled at the young woman and she started up a conversation with him. As they talked, her robe slipped open, and it was obvious that she had nothing else on. The poor kid broke into a sweat trying to maintain eye contact. After a few minutes, she placed her hand on his arm and said, 'Let's go to my apartment, I hear someone coming.' He followed her into her apartment; she closed the door and leaned against it, allowing her robe to fall off completely. Now nude, she purred at him, 'What would you say is my best feature?' Flustered and embarrassed, he finally squeaked, 'It's got to be your ears.' Astounded, and a little hurt she asked, 'My ears?!?!? Look at these breasts; they are a full 39 inches and 100% natural. I work out every day and my bum is firm and solid. I have a 28 inch waist. Look at my skin - not a blemish anywhere. How can you think that the best part of my body is my ears?' Clearing his throat, he stammered....‘Outside, when you said you heard someone coming....... that was me!'

Jokes h a h a :) There was a man who lost one of his arms in an accident. He became very depressed because he had loved to play golf and couldn't play anymore. One day in his despair, he decided to commit suicide. He got in a lift and went to the top of a building to jump off. He was standing on the ledge looking down and saw this man skipping along, whooping and kicking up his heels. He looked closer and saw that this man didn't have any arms at all. He started thinking, what am I doing up here feeling sorry for myself, I still have one good arm to do things with. There goes a man with no arms skipping down the sidewalk so happy, and going on with his life. He hurried down and caught up with the man with no arms. He told him how glad he was to see him because he had lost one of his arms and felt useless and was going to kill himself. He thanked him again for saving his life and said he knew he could make it with one arm if that guy could go on with no arms. The man with no arms began dancing and whooping and kicking up his heels again. He asked, "Why are you so happy?" He said, "I'm NOT happy!" "My balls itch!" ------------------------------------------------------------It was entertainment night at the Senior Citizens Centre. Claude the hypnotist explained, "I'm here to put you into a trance; I intend to hypnotise each and every member of the audience." The excitement was almost electric as Claude withdrew a beautiful antique pocket watch from his coat. "I want each of you to keep your eyes on this antique watch. It's a very special watch. It's been in my family for six generations." He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly chanting, "Watch the watch, watch the watch, watch the watch..." The crowd became mesmerised as the watch swayed back and forth, light gleaming off its polished surface. A hundred pairs of eyes followed the swaying watch until, suddenly, the

chain broke, it slipped from the hypnotist's fingers and fell to the floor, breaking into a hundred pieces. "S***!" exclaimed the hypnotist. It took three days to clean up the Senior Citizens Centre! ------------------------------------------------------------A bloke's wife went missing while diving off the West Australian Coast . He reported the event, searched fruitlessly and spent a terrible night wondering what could have happened to her. Next morning there's a knock at the door and he is confronted by a couple of policemen, the old Sarge and a younger Constable. The Sarge says, 'Mate, we have some news for you, unfortunately some really bad news, but, some good news, and maybe some more good news'. 'Well,' says the bloke, 'I guess I'd better have the bad news first?' The Sarge says, 'I'm really sorry mate, but your wife is dead. Young Bill here found her lying at about five fathoms in a little cleft in the reef. He got a line around her and we pulled her up, but she was dead.' The bloke is naturally distressed to hear of this and has a bit of a turn. But after a few minutes he pulls himself together and asks what the good news is. The Sarge says, 'Well when we got your wife up there were quite a few really good sized lobsters and a swag of nice crabs attached to her, so we've brought you your share.' He hands the bloke a bag with a couple of nice lobsters and four or five crabs in it. 'Geez thanks. They're bloody beauties. I guess it's an ill wind and all that... So what's the other possible good news? 'Well', the Sarge says, 'if you fancy a trip, me and young Bill here get off duty around 11 and we're gonna shoot over there and pull her up again... ------------------------------------------------------------Snow in the forecast! The TV weather girl said she was expecting 8 inches tonight. I thought to myself, fat chance with a face like that!
