It’s commonly known and accepted that mediums and those who work with the other side see spirits on a regular basis, but how about when it comes to us ordinary folk? Well, since working on The Light book project and engaging in frequent conversations about spirituality with many different types of people, I was astonished to discover just how many of us have seen spirits and ghosts. My own experiences seeing spirits happened within a two year period shortly after a very depressing period of my life, which I now understand as and refer to as my “dark night of the soul.” As a result of that down spell, I was able to open up and awake, allowing more Light to pour into my awareness than ever before. The first time I saw a spirit, I was in between sleep and wakefulness. It must have been around 3 o’clock in the morning and when I sat up in bed to the left of me I saw a large sphere of white Light, dimmer around the edges until it faded into the black of the night. I did not feel scared. In fact, I felt strangely peaceful and at ease, given that something, if not someone was with me in my bedroom. I instinctively knew that this ball of Light was male. A muffled sound seemed to be emanating from him as if he was trying to tell me something. It sounded strikingly similar to the waves of a radio station when not accurately tuned in. Then before long the ball of Light began to back away, drifting further and further away from my bed, out of the door, and into the hallway until I could no longer see it from my position. I lay back down, enthralled and excited about what I had just seen. After that, I saw various other spirits within a six month time frame, including alien forms.

Strange News

cleansing session by Molly Ann Fairley, a past life expert. She had cleared all kinds of past life trauma from my awareness, along with some experiences in this lifetime. I felt ever so emotional and cried for almost the entire afternoon and evening. After a startling dream in which someone had entered my bedroom, I awoke with a jump.

Cher or Mags? Margaret Thatcher's death sparked confusion on Twitter with fans of Cher believing it was the singer who had died. The mix-up happened when people took to the social networking site to give their reaction using the hashtag #nowthatchersdead. Fans of the singer, who has had number one hits with Believe and The ShoopShoop Song, misread it as 'Now that Cher's dead'. It sparked a flurry of tributes to the American popstar and her name started to trend in the

The first thing I saw when I opened my eyes was a lady. She looked to be in her mid to late thirties and she was very beautiful. She was sitting on the edge of my bed, leaning right in towards me, stroking my forehead lovingly, as if to comfort me. She was see through, like one might expect a ghost to appear. When she noticed that I had opened my eyes and seen her, her expression changed into one of shock and she put her cardigan over her arm, stood up from the bed and fled in the direction of my bedroom door before disappearing through it. As in the ball of Light experience, I did not feel at all scared at the sudden sight of this lady…again, I felt relaxed, calm and at peace. Seeing spirits is something that we all have the ability to do, however it might not always be the right time on our journey. Only God / the Light knows when it is the right time for us to see. One thing I do really understand and wish to share is this: “It’s not seeing is believing. It’s believing is seeing.” In other words, when we truly and wholly believe, we will then see. I have since learned that this is true for all areas of life… I’ll end this month’s editorial by saying thank you and goodbye to Michelle who has worked as a sales person for The Sentinella for the last three and a half years. And a warm welcome to Tina who has taken her place. Also, look out for the exciting Guess the Building competition in this month’s edition!

UK. Comedian Ricky Gervais attempted to set the record straight, writing: "Some people are in a frenzy over the hashtag #nowthatchersdead. It's 'Now Thatcher's dead'. Not, 'Now that Cher's dead'." Proposal studies - A woman is offering lessons in how to propose after being disappointed by her boyfriend's attempt at popping the question. Sam Sheppard, 34, from Monmouthshire, Wales, turned down her boyfriend's proposal which she says felt more like "being asked out for pizza". So she set up a company - The Proposal Expert - to train other men in the art of proposing, reports the Daily Telegraph. "I want to help other people not to feel how I felt. Initially, I felt like he couldn't really care about me to have asked that way, though of course I know that's not true at all," she said. "I ask key questions to put together the pieces of the puzzle - what makes their partner laugh, how they spend their Saturday mornings those little things build up a picture. "Once we've got the idea, the proposer can then have as much or as little input as they like. So far I've got a 100 per cent success rate." The groom - or bride - to be can choose from a number of packages, and Miss Sheppard claims she can cater for any budget from £10 to £10,000. "A good proposal can be a lasting talking point, but a bad one can end up on YouTube for the whole world to see," she added.

Never Rush These Things! I was due for an appointment with the gynecologist later in the week. Early one morning, I received a call from the doctor’s office to tell me that I had been rescheduled for that morning at 9:30 am. I had only just packed everyone off to work and school, and it was already around 8:45am. The trip to his office took about 35 minutes, so I didn’t have any time to spare. As most women do, I like to take a little extra effort over hygiene when making such visits, but this time I wasn’t going to be able to make the full effort. So, I rushed upstairs, threw off my pijamas, wet the washcloth that was sitting next to the sink, and gave myself a quick wash in that area to make sure I was at least presentable. I threw the washcloth in the clothes basket, donned some clothes, hopped in the car and raced to my appointment. I was in the waiting room for only a few minutes when I was called in. Knowing the procedure, as I’m sure you do, I hopped up on the table,

looked over at the other side of the room and pretended that I was in Paris or some other place a million miles away. I was a little surprised when the doctor said, “My, we have made an extra effort this morning, haven’t we?” I didn’t respond. After the appointment, I heaved a sigh of relief and went home. The rest of the day was normal .. Some shopping, cleaning, cooking. After school when my 6 year old daughter was playing, she called out from the bathroom, “Mummy, where’s my washcloth?” I told her to get another one from the cupboard. She replied, “No, I need the one that was here by the sink, it had all my glitter and sparkles saved inside it.” Never going back to that doctor again…… ….. never!

De Cotta Law The ownership of a Spanish property by a Limited Company. By De Cotta Law There can be advantages in purchasing or transferring Spanish property into the name of a UK limited company. There can be a significant saving on inheritance tax in Spain where there is no spouse exemption for non residents. Some companies are offering to set up standard structures but where the current tax value of the property is not very high this can be expensive if your particular circumstances are not taken into account. Everybody has different considerations both for their Spanish property and their UK assets and a consultation is advisable using the current tax levels so that you can decide if this structure suits you. It is very important to take tax advice in both countries as you must comply with all of the obligations on fiscal transparency and each individual client has unique circumstances. Incorporation of a company in the UK is cheap and fast. Everything is available online or your lawyers or accountants in the UK can do this for you. You will need a UK accountant immediately so that all and any taxes are paid. An accountant can also advise you of the implications for you in England of owning property in a company name. We have a list of firms that can assist depending on what area you are in. The shares can be held by one person or distributed amongst the family. Subsequent share transfers may have tax implications which are matters for the UK Tax authorities – the HMRC. One of the directors will need to grant a Spanish form power of attorney on behalf of the company. This will be needed to appear before the Spanish notary to buy or transfer the property. It is better to do this as the alternative involves costly translations of the company articles and legalisation which slows down the process.

The UK company will need to apply in Spain for a CIF number (Código Identificación Fiscal) and new rules mean that one of the directors will also have to apply for a number to ensure any tax notifications are received. The UK company will be taking advantage of the Double taxation relief treaty and is therefore not liable for corporation tax in Spain.

interesting Facts - El Salvador, which is Spanish for "the saviour" - or Jesus Christ - has been wracked by civil war and a succession of natural disasters. The tiny country is the most densely-populated state on the mainland of the Americas and is highly industrialised. But social inequality and a susceptibility to earthquakes have shaped much of modern El Salvador. El Salvador is known as the “Land of the Volcanoes”. It has some of the most active volcanoes in the world. El Salvador went to war with Honduras after a soccer match; which was later known as the “Soccer War”. It is the only country in central America without an Atlantic coast line. In 2001, over 12,00 people were killed from an earthquake and many more were left homeless.

Chiropody At Rumours Hair Salon With summer approaching, it’s time to show off our feet. Are you concerned about how your feet look and feel? Common foot problems can be resolved, such as hard skin, callus, corns -- not to mention that dreaded fungal nail infection (identified by thick, discoloured nails often known as ‘golden toe’). It can be difficult in Spain to know how to deal with these problems or where to get help and advice, but you don’t have to suffer unnecessarily. All these conditions are treatable, and as a UK-qualified chiropodist working at Rumours Hair Salon every Thursday, I would be glad to assist in giving you advice and helping you get healthy, happy feet. Corns and callus/hard skin can cause pain and discomfort. As we walk around barefoot or in sandals in the summer, the skin can become

dry and heels in particular can become cracked or hard with callus which is hard to remove using a pumice alone. Fungal nail infection is a common complaint which is easily treated, although it can take up to 12 months to resolve. Why delay in getting it treated? Infected nails are unlikely to heal themselves and will more than likely worsen with time. Nails become difficult to cut due to increased thickness, and this can spread to the other nails. For some people, this causes embarrassment, but I am not embarrassed by any foot related problems you may have, so why not share them with me. Just call Rumours Hair Salon on 951232881 and ask to book an appointment with me, Susan Blackwell For the ladies who want the finishing touches of polished nails, I offer a combined chiropody and pedicure treatment.

USC Study - Short & Sweet!

New Sex Pill!!

A study conducted by USC 's Department of Psychiatry has revealed that the kind of face a woman finds attractive on a man can differ depending on where she is in her menstrual cycle.

Since his indiscretions have come to light, several of Tiger Woods' sponsors have dropped him.

For example, if she is ovulating, she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features. However, if she is menstruating or menopausal, she tends to be more attracted to a man with duct tape over his mouth and a spear lodged in his chest, with a golf club up his arse, while he is on fire. No further studies are expected on this subject.

However, Pfizer has decided to continue to sponsor him. They are making a new drug called "Tiagra". "It's good for 18 holes"

Clinica Casa Blanca - What Is Craniosacral Therapy? Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction, improving whole-body health and performance. CST is an alternative medicine therapy used by osteopaths, massage therapists, naturopaths and chiropractors. Using a soft touch, practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues which surround the central nervous system. Cranial osteopathy was originated by physician William Sutherland, DO (1873-1954) in 18981900. From 1975 to 1983, osteopathic physician John E Upledger developed his own treatment style after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University, where he served as professor of biomechanics. He set up a team, went on to publish their results and started to teach his work to a group of students.

Craniosacral therapists use the therapy to treat: migraines and headaches; chronic neck and back pain; spinal misalignment; mental stress and tension-related disorders - Fibromyalgia; scoliosis; infant and childhood disorders; aDD/aDhD; orthopaedic problems; post-traumatic stress disorders; tMJ syndrome and many other conditions

The therapist places his/her hands lightly on the patient’s body, tuning in to the patient by “listening” with the hands or, in Sutherland`s words, “with thinking fingers”. There are few reports of adverse side effects from CST treatment.

CST is increasingly used as a preventive

Church Ladies With Typewriters... ...in their own words They're Back! Those wonderful Church Bulletins! Thank God for church ladies with typewriters. These sentences actually appeared in church bulletins or were announced in church services: The Fasting & Prayer Conference includes meals. The sermon this morning: 'Jesus Walks on the Water.' The sermon tonight: 'Searching for Jesus.' Ladies, don't forget the rummage sale. It's a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Bring your husbands. Miss Charlene Mason sang 'I will not pass this way again,' giving obvious pleasure to the congregation.

For those of you who have children and don't know it, we have a nursery downstairs. Next Thursday there will be try outs for the choir. They need all the help they can get. At the evening service tonight, the sermon topic will be 'What Is Hell?' Come early and listen to our choir practice. Eight new choir robes are currently needed due to the addition of several new members and to the deterioration of some older ones. Scouts are saving aluminum cans, bottles and other items to be recycled. Proceeds will be used to cripple children. Please place your donation in the envelope along with the deceased person you want remembered.. Weight Watchers will meet at 7pm at the First Presbyterian Church. Please use large double door at the side entrance.

The Light Column Message from the Light: Trusting the Journey Today’s message from the Light, takes the form of a small parable. Look out for the deep message and its meaning! There was once a little man who operated the most thrilling ride in the theme park. His job involved tightening the nuts and bolts, checking the rails and maintaining the wagon. One day a young girl stopped by his window and said, “Hey Sir, don’t you ever get bored working on this rollercoaster everyday?” The man lifted his head and looked deep into her eyes. “Why no,” he said. “It reminds me how to live.” “What do you mean?” said the young girl, with a puzzled expression on her face.

Be very careful!

Chinese sick day: Wong Chow calls into work and says, I no come work today, I really sick. Got headache, stomach ache and legs hurt, I no come work.. The boss says, You know something, Wong Chow, I really need you today. When I feel sick like you do, I go to my wife and tell her to give me sex. That makes everything better and I go to work.. You try that. Two hours later Wong Chow calls again. I do what you say and I feel great... I be at work soon..... You got nice house.

your blood pressure reading Ideally your blood pressure reading should be below 120/80mmHg. However, anything under 130/80mmHg is generally considered normal. The only way to know if you have high blood pressure is to have it checked. This can be done by your GP or another healthcare professional, and you can also check it yourself with a home testing kit. Blood pressure is often measured using a sphygmomanometer, a device which consists of a stethoscope, arm cuff, dial, pump and valve. The cuff is placed around your arm and pumped up to restrict the bolld flow. The presssure is then slowly released as your pulse is checked using the stethoscope. Hearing how your pulse beats after the cuff is released allows a measurement to be taken on the mercury scale, giving an accurate reading of your blood pressure. Before having your blood pressure taken, you should rest for at least five minutes and empty your bladder. Having one raised blood pressure reading does not necessarily mean you have high

home testing kits Portable testing kits that measure your blood pressure can be a useful way of getting accurate results. This is because some people become anxious in medical centres, which can cause the blood pressure to rise. It is important to buy a blood pressure monitor that is reliable and gives accurate readings. The British Hypertension Society (BHS) website has detailed information about clinically approved blood pressure monitors.

A Page For The Doggies! Welcome to our new feature bought to us by Tina from Happy Hounds. abandoning your animal is a crime This is a difficult subject to discuss, but one which I think does need addressing, especially as the laws have now changed, making it easier to travel with your pets. The financial crisis has affected us all -- and not just in this country. The number of animals being dumped has soared, but the rescue societies have also been badly affected as people no longer have as much money to give in donations or in support of their fund-raising events. They have been overwhelmed by the number of animals for which they are asked to provide care, and as the number of people moving to this country has decreased it is much more difficult to find new homes for these animals. Caring for them until a new home is found costs money.

big decision and you need to consider this for the life of your animal: a dog or cat can live for more than 10 years. This is a big commitment. We are in an EU country and, as in the UK, there are laws for the protection of animals. One of these is to prosecute and fine for the abandonment of an animal; the fine can be anything between 2,000 – 30,000€ and the Spanish authorities are quite happy to enforce this. I will follow up this article with more information on the new laws for travelling and for the protection of animals, also giving information about the departments responsible for dealing with complaints when animals are abandoned or mistreated. If you have a topic that you would like covered or a specific question please email Tina on: thesentinellachristina@gmail.com

There are so many abandoned dogs and cats now being cared for by animal societies and fosterers, and many are left loose to find food at bins. Some are even left behind at the property where the owner used to live.

T H E  D O G  H O U S E

When I first came to Spain, I did not realise that it is owners of all nationalities who leave animals to fend for themselves.

While you are away on holiday or a weekend break, your dogs live in our house alongside our dog.

These animals are not just the ones people have taken on over here, but some have actually come to Spain with their owners but have then been left behind. I cannot understand how anyone could believe it is ok to abandon an animal. When you give a home to a dog or cat they are your permanent responsibility -- not just for the time when it suits you. People’s circumstances do change, though, and some who leave their animals behind do not always want to; they do try to find new homes for them. If you are in this situation and have to call any of the rescue societies, give them time to find a place for your animal; calling them a week -- or a day -- before you leave is nowhere near enough notice. Taking on the responsibility of any animal is a

New Mum in Town Baby girl was crawling, sitting and pulling herself up. Of course that meant that I was getting fitter at long last. She even started to clap on an eventful evening at La China! She had got six teeth and was liking food more, but she still loved her teta... and all I could say was “ouch.” Challenging as it had been, Jazmin was now in her own room but not yet sleeping through. As long as she was using Mama as a chupete, noone would ever have a full night’s sleep again – it would be good to put a stop to this somehow. Fast forward to January 8. A big milestone. My baby girl's first birthday. I just cannot believe that she is one already, and that I am preparing her first birthday party! Needless to say, emotions are high! And I don't just mean stress... The checklist - baby dressed as a fairy, baked baby-friendly cake and cupcakes, nibbles for mums, goodie bags, pink Minnie decorations, balloons, Pocoyo party music and the ball pit...ding dong, here we go... Jazmin has five little friends over and she spends the best part of the afternoon glued to me and crying - it's her birthday and she'll cry

if she wants to, I suppose. Got to save this party... after the momumental success -- present wise -- at Christmas and Reyes, it would surely work again today. Jazmin has perfected the surprise gasp when opening presents and provides much entertainment, and she seems to relax a little once she has seen yet more new toys. Phew.. and everyone is having a blast; dare I say mums more than children?? Two rounds of happy birthday (Spanish and English of course), the kiddies sit to have their snacks and Jazmin takes advantage of the ball pit. Without all the hype, she is back to herself - seems she was just overwhelmed. Then it happens...the big news...wait for it.... I'm a proud Mummy being trigger happy with the camera when WOWSERS - my baby girl takes her first steps. What an occasion, what a moment - I couldn't be more proud and I begin to feel overwhelmed by it all myself. My baby girl is just awesome, and certainly knows how to pick her moments - like mother like daughter, hey! Now it won't be long until she is walking properly...watch out poochies, watch out Mummy -- life is about to be turned upside down. Again! I cannot wait.More next month

All free-to-view stations you receive on your satellite dish are moving to the new Astra2E fleet of satellites. The coverage of the new satellites extends only to northern and mid Spain. Channel 5 has already moved, and you will know this cannot be received, therefore it is not unreasonable to assume you will not be able to receive the other channels when they move. Our product is a normal TV experience no complex or tricky web-based viewing on your PC or laptop. We have all your favourite British television channels included in our service and all of them are available with a full seven days’ catch-up service. No dish is required just a simple set top box and internet connection. Your TV will also need an HDMI connection, although it will work with a scart lead. HDMI gives better quality. Our system is referred to as IPTV (Internet

Protocol Television) We deliver TV content directly to your home using a blend of proven internet streaming technologies and in-house innovations, optimised to give you the best UK TV experience from the comfort of your lounge without the need for PCs or laptops and no need for any satellite dish. The Astra2 service is available on our set top box but as an extra, we offer a service for your home computer, smartphone and tablet. 7 day catch-up: How many times has a friend said to you. “Did you see that fantastic programme the other day?” or you went out on Saturday and forgot to record “Strictly?” Our system records EVERY channel EVERY day for the last 7 days. On Sky, you browse forward to see what time a programme starts. You can do that with our system, but we allow you to scroll BACK 7 days and watch anything you want. Then, when watching a pre-recorded programme you can fast forward through the adverts. :) Please visit our website www.astra2.tv for a complete explanation of our offering.

The Logic Of A Beer Drinker Dialogue between a lady interviewer with a male beer drinker: Lady Interviewer: Do you drink every day? Man: Yes. Lady Interviewer: How much a day? Man: Around 3 six-packs starting at noon. Lady Interviewer: How much does a 6-pack cost?

Lady Interviewer: If in 1 year you spend $10,800 on beer, not accounting for inflation, 15 years puts your spending roughly $162,000; correct? Man: Correct. Lady Interviewer: Did it ever occur to you that if you did not drink for the last 15 years, you could have bought a Ferrari? Man: Do you drink?

Man: Roughly $10.00 at a deli.

Lady Interviewer: No!!!

Lady Interviewer: And how long have you been drinking like that?

Man: So where's your f***ng Ferrari?

Man: 15 years. Lady Interviewer: So with a six-pack costing $10.00, and you consuming 3 six-packs a day, you are spending roughly $900 each month. In one year, you would then be spending $10,800, correct? Man: Correct.

Lady Interviewer: ……….. end of interview.

Flu Season We are still just in the flu season so take my advice to avoid it:

when you go for a flu jab, what do they do first? 

Eat right! Make sure you get your daily dose of fruit and veggies. Take your vitamins and bump up your vitamin C.

They clean your arm with alcohol. why? Because alcohol KILLS GERMS.

Get plenty of exercise because it builds your immune system, walk at least an hour a day, go for a swim, take the stairs instead of the lift etc...

so...

Wash your hands often. If you can’t keep a bottle of antibacterial stuff Open around. doors and windows whenever possible. Try to eliminate as much stress from your life as you can. Get plenty of rest. OR take the doctor’s approach. Think about it..

I walk to the pub. (Exercise) I put lime in my vodka. (Fruit) Celery in my Bloody Mary. (Veggies) Drink outdoors on the patio. (Fresh air) Tell jokes and laugh. (Eliminate stress) Then I pass out. (rest) The way I see it... If you keep your alcohol levels up, flu germs can’t get you ! Remember.. ‘A shot in the glass is better than one in the ass!’

Random Joke :)

Civil V Fiscal Residency

A 5-year-old boy went to visit his grandmother one day. Playing with his toys in her bedroom while grandma was dusting, he looked up and said, ‘Grandma, how come you don't have a boyfriend now that Grandpa went to heaven?' Grandma replied, 'Honey, my TV is my boyfriend. I can sit in my bedroom and watch it all day long. The religious programs make me feel good and the comedies make me laugh... ‘I'm happy with my TV as my boyfriend.' Grandma turned on the TV, and the reception was terrible. She started adjusting the knobs, trying to get the picture in focus. Frustrated, she started hitting the backside of the TV hoping to fix the problem. The little boy heard the doorbell ring, so he hurried to open the door and there stood Grandma's minister from the local church. The minister said, 'Hello son, is your Grandma home?' The little boy replied, 'Yeah, she's in the bedroom bangin' her boyfriend.' The minister fainted.

Most people are pretty good at getting their civil residency from the national police and are keen to show that they are not just passing trade. However, not everyone is aware that there is more to residency than your sheet of green paper (civil resident). For the fiscal residency you need a certificate from the tax office and for this, you have to declare your income tax in Spain every year (Form 100). Civil residency is, in fact, pretty useless when it comes to financial matters. For example, when capital gains or inheritance tax is due, if you can’t prove you are a fiscal resident then you can end up paying non-resident taxes and there are big differences between these and resident ones. For eg; if you live in Andalucia, you are a married couple with a house valued at 200.000€ and have both names on the deed, when one of you dies, if the remaining spouse cannot prove fiscal residency then they will be charged around 9,833€ in inheritance tax. If they can prove fiscal residency, then the tax is zero. Written by Helping Axarquia - advert below

Puente Don Manuel

Puente Don Manuel or The Bridge of Don Manuel, is a Hamlet belonging to Alcaucin and is situated close to La Viñuela village. The eponymous bridge is very picturesque with four arches, surrounded by very green trees and horses grazing in a field below. At one end of the bridge is the local bar/restaurant and a shop and the other end is the small church. The Hamlet used to be a traveller’s resting place before the long climb up to the Boquete de Zafarraya, the entrance to Granada Province. These days the area is known locally by expats as ‘Little England’, not the actual Hamlet, but further up at the Cruce de Periana crossroads where you can turn up towards Periana or down t o w a r d s Venta Baja. This area is full of English shops, bars, hairdressers, boutiques and even a beauty salon and on Tuesdays there is an English Farmers Market. The Hamlet is situated just 14 kilometres from

AS2437

the coast and 40 kilometres from Malaga, at an altitude of 225 metres. The drive there takes in stunning views past the reservoir at Viñuela and up towards Zafarraya where the Boquete cuts into the skyline like giants bosoms! Looking up towards it the road looks like a model railway and the traffic like tiny trains. As magnificent as this view is it can get even better! On the return journey from Granada Province where the land, although high, if flat! The view as you drive through the Boquete, at an altitude of 1,100 metres, is awesome, with the Axarquia unfolding in front of your eyes, the villages, mountains, lake and sea each competing for attention. Be careful as you make the ascent as your ears can pop!

Random Jokes An elderly man lay dying in his bed. While suffering the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favourite scones wafting up the stairs. He gathered his remaining strength, and lifted himself from the bed. Leaning on the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort, gripping the railing with both hands, he crawled downstairs. With laboured breath, he leaned against the door-frame, gazing into the kitchen. Were it not for death's agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven, for there, spread out upon the kitchen table were literally hundreds of his favourite scones. Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of love from his devoted Yorkshire wife of sixty years, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man? Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself towards the table, landing on his knees in rumpled posture. His aged and withered hand trembled towards a scone at the edge of the table, when it was suddenly smacked by his wife with a wooden spoon...... 'Bugger off’ she said, 'They're for the funeral.'

Random Jokes :) A young Chinese couple get married she's a virgin & they are both waiters. Truth be told, he is a virgin too, but she doesn't know that. On their wedding night, she cowers naked under the sheets, as her husband undresses in the darkness. He climbs into bed next to her and tries to be reassuring. "My darring," he whispers, "I know dis you firss time and you berry frighten. I plomise you, I give you anyting you want, I do anyting juss anyting you want. You juss ask. Whatchu want?" he says, trying to sound experienced and worldly, which he hopes will impress her. A thoughtful silence follows, and he waits patiently and eagerly for her request. She eventually shyly whispers back, "I want to try someting I have heard about from other girls ... Nummaa 69". More thoughtful silence, but this time from him. Eventually, in a puzzled tone he asks her... "You want ... Garlic Chicken with corrifrowa?"

Olga started training at the age of eight. Her coach, RenaldKnysh, at first described her as "lazy and capricious" but said he also saw potential in her great talent, unusually supple spine and her charisma. In 1969, Olga became the first woman ever to perform a backward release on bars when she pulled off the incredibly difficult backflip-tocatch on the uneven bars At the 1972 Olympics, Olga’s acrobatics and open high-level gymnastics brought her much fame. To this day, the tuck back and Korbut Flip

After the 1972 Olympic competition, she also met United States President Richard Nixon at the White House. About the meeting, Korbut said: "He told me that my performance in Munich did more for reducing the political tension during the Cold War between our two countries than the embassies were able to do in five years." In 1988 Korbut was the first gymnast to be inducted into the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame. After moving to the US she told a Russian newspaper that her coach, RenaldKnysh, first plied her with cognac and then forced her to have sex with him shortly before the Olympics. She said Knysh and the other Soviet coaches saw their pupils "not just as potential gymnasts but future concubines". She alleged that he struck her and sought complete control of her life. Today, Olga lives in Scottsdale, Arizona and enjoys hiking, exercising, and cooking. She is still is involved in gymnastics on a daily basis and says she has only put on four pounds in weight since her Olympic days.

Random Joke

Sign Language....

Tom was working in the garden this weekend and his wife was upstairs, about to take a shower. Tom realised that he couldn't find the rake and yelled up to his wife, "Where is the rake?" She couldn't really hear him and shouted back, "What?" He pointed to his eye, and then he pointed to his knee and made a raking motion. His wife was a bit puzzled and again said "What?" He repeated the gestures. "Eye - Kneed - The Rake" His wife indicated that she understood and signaled back. She first pointed to her eye, next she pointed to her left breast, then she pointed to her backside and finally to her crotch. Well, there was no way in hell Tom could even come close to that one. Exasperated, he went upstairs and asked her, "What the hell was that?" She replied, "Eye - Left Tit - Behind - The Bush"

Film iew es Rev ark ski D

If you’ve seen the trailer for “Dark Skies,” you pretty much already know what kind of boogeyman is causing all the ruckus in the film, which involves birds going berserk, bloody noses and bad dreams.

The alarm system malfunctions. All the family photos mysteriously disappear overnight. And then, the younger kid (Kadan Rockett) starts talking about someone called “the Sandman,” like he’s more than just his new imaginary friend. Soon he’s sleepwalking and going into catatonic states. As “Dark Skies” builds to its modest climax, the malevolent supernatural force resorts to removing wood screws from the barricades that the family has erected over their windows. Star Rating - ***/*****

The movie builds a moderate, if less than monumental, level of spookiness, regardless of your ignorance. It’s a workmanlike piece of suspense. The movie starts slowly, as a suburban couple (Keri Russell and Josh Hamilton) and their two young sons start to notice odd things happening around the house, such as finding a towering construction of precariously piled food containers in the kitchen. From there, the weirdness just keeps getting weirder.

LT Construction Water Deposits Water deposits and tanks -- as they are sometimes called -- are a vital part of managing your water requirements in your home. Here in rural Andalucia, the mains water supply can often be cut for several days or water pressure can fall to a mere trickle. Water tank application parameters include the general design of the tank and its materials of construction, as well as the following: - Location of the water tank (above ground vs. below ground) - Volume of water the tank will need to hold - The purpose for which the water will be used (drinking or irrigation) - Temperature of the area where the water will be stored

- Pressure requirements (domestic pressure range 35-60 PSI) - Methods by which water is delivered into and extracted from the water tank - Design considerations, allowing water tanks to survive seismic movement and natural land movement - Back-flow prevention - Chemical injection for bacteria and virus controls As water tanks are essential for living in the countryside in Spain, it is important that they are installed correctly. Why not talk to us at LT Construction when considering a new tank or upgrading your existing system? It is vital you make the right decisions! See main advert below

Beginning in the 1920s, the meaning of the term beige expanded to the point where it is now also used for a wide range of pale brown shades. Beige is dependable, conservative, and flexible. The colour beige is neutral, calm, and relaxing. The colour beige offers some of the warmth of the colour brown and the some of the crisp and coolness of the colour white. While it is a relaxing colour, beige is often seen as being dull and boring.

A similar colour to beige is ivory. A neutral, relaxing, and calming colour, it has some of the same pureness and softness of the colour white, but with a warmer tone. represents Ivory quiet and pleasantness. The colour ivory sets a relaxed tone of understated elegance. Beige was used as a colour term in the modern sense in France beginning in about 1855-60; the writer Edmond de Goncourt used it in the novel La Fille Elisa in 1877.The first recorded use of beige as a colour name in English was in 1887. Ivory is the traditional 14th wedding anniversary gift and pearl is the traditional 30th wedding anniversary gift. Pearl and opal, which are shades of ivory, are considered precious stones. The ivory tusks of elephants carry a high value and worth in many cultures and have long been used in the creation of jewellery decoration of furniture and home décor.

Association for the Protection of Animals Rincon de la Vicotoria Milo was rescued from the street in Rincon. One of his back legs was broken and his nails were so long they were cutting into the pads of his feet. At the time he wasn’t strong enough to have his leg operated on as he was in such a poor state. Milo has now been nursed back to health and although his leg is still stiff, it doesn’t seem to bother him at all. He runs up and down the hills just as fast as the other dogs. He is a bodequero breed which is similar to a Jack Russell. He was most likely born in late 2008 or early 2009, stands about 33cm in height and is about 44cm in length. He is very affectionate and would make a lovely family pet. If you are interested in adopting Milo, please call Lola at 657 219 269 or contact us at aparivspain@gmail.com. visit all our dogs at www.aparivdogrescue.com. Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th May Restaurante Sabina in Almuñecar are offering a special Mothers Day menu on these two days consisting of three courses, a complimentary glass of cava and a bottle of house wine for just 35€ a couple. see advert on page 40

) : a h a h s e k o J Carol, a blonde city girl, marries a Cornish dairy farmer. One morning, on his way out to check on the cows, farmer John says to Carol, 'The insemination man is coming over to impregnate one of our cows today. I drove a nail into the rail above the cow's stall in the barn. You show him where the cow is when he gets here, OK?' So then the farmer leaves for the fields. After a while, the insemination man arrives and knocks on the front door. Carol takes him down to the barn. They walk along the row of cows and when she sees the nail, she tells him, 'This is the one...right here.' Terribly impressed by what he seemed to think just might be another ditzy blonde, the man asks, 'Tell me lady, how did you know this is the cow to be bred?' 'That's simple; by the nail over its stall', Carol explains very confidently. Then the man asks, 'What's the nail for?' She turns and starts to walk away and with complete confidence, says over her shoulder, 'I assume it's to hang your trousers on.' ------------------------------------------------------------A 7 year old and a 4 year old are upstairs in their bedroom. 'You know what?' says the 7 year old, 'I think it's about time we started swearing.' The 4 year old nods his head in approval, so the 7 year old says, 'When we go downstairs for breakfast I'm gonna swear first, then you swear after me, ok?' 'Ok' the 4 year old, agrees with enthusiasm.. The mother walks into the kitchen and asks the 7 year old what he wants for breakfast. 'Oh, s*** mum, I don't know, I suppose I'll have some Coco Pops' WHACK!! He flew out of his chair, tumbled across the kitchen floor, got up, and ran upstairs crying his eyes out. She looked at the 4 year old and asked with a stern voice, ' And what do YOU want for breakfast, young man?' 'I don't know,' he blubbers, 'but it won't be f****** Coco Pops'.

One dark night outside a small town in Minnesota, a fire started inside the local chemical plant and in a blink of an eye it exploded into massive flames. The alarm went out to all the fire departments for miles around. When the volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene, the chemical company president rushed to the fire chief and said, "All our secret formulas are in the vault in the centre of the plant. They must be saved. I will give $50,000 to the fire department that brings them out intact." But the roaring flames held the firefighters off. Soon more fire departments had to be called in as the situation became desperate. As the firemen arrived, the president shouted out that the offer was now $100,000 to the fire department who could bring out the company's secret files. From the distance, a lone siren was heard as another fire truck came into sight. It was the nearby Norwegian rural township volunteer fire company composed mainly of Norwegians over the age of 65. To everyone's amazement, that little run-down fire engine roared right past all the newer sleek engines that were parked outside the plant. Without even slowing down it drove straight into the middle of the inferno. Outside, the other firemen watched as the Norwegian old timers jumped off right in the middle of the fire fought it back on all sides. It was a performance and effort never seen before. Within a short time, the Norske old timers had extinguished the fire and had saved the secret formulas. The grateful chemical company president announced that for such a superhuman feat he was upping the reward to $200,000, and walked over to personally thank each of the brave fire fighters. The local TV news reporter rushed in to capture the event on film, asking their chief, "What are you going to do with all that money?" "Vell," said Ole Larsen, the 70-year-old fire chief, "Da first thing ve gonna do is fix da brakes on dat Bloody truck!"

Jokes h a h a :) My wife hosted a dinner party for family far and wide and everyone was encouraged to bring all their children as well. All during dinner my four-year-old niece stared at me sitting across from her. The girl could hardly eat her food for staring. I checked my shirt for spots, felt my face for food, patted my hair in place but nothing stopped her from staring at me. I tried my best to just ignore her but finally it was too much for me. I finally asked her "Why are you staring at me?" Everyone at the table had noticed her behaviour and the table went quiet for her response. My little niece said "I'm just waiting to see how you drink like a fish." ------------------------------------------------------------During a lady's medical examination, the doctor says:- "Your heart, lungs, pulse and blood pressure are all fine. Now let me see the bit that gets you ladies into all kinds of trouble." The lady starts taking off her underwear but is interrupted by the doctor. "No! No! Don't remove your clothes... Just stick out your tongue!" ------------------------------------------------------------The Mexican maid asked for a pay increase. The wife was very upset about this and decided to talk to her about the raise. She asked, “Now Maria, why do you want a pay increase?” Maria: “Well, Señora, there are tree reasons why I wanna increaze. The first is that I iron better than you.” Wife: “Who said you iron better than me?” Maria: “Jor huzban he say so.” Wife: “Oh yeah?” Maria: “The second reason eez that I am a better cook than you.” Wife: “Nonsense, who said you were a better cook than me?” Maria: “Jor hozban did.” Wife increasingly agitated: “Oh he did, did he?” Maria: “The third reason is that I am better at sex than you in the bed.” Wife, really boiling now and through gritted teeth asks, “And did my husband say that as well?” Maria: “No Señora… The gardener did.”

Wife: “So how much do you want?” An old man lay sprawled across three entire seats in the movie theatre. When the usher came by and noticed this, he whispered to the old man, "Sorry sir, but you're only allowed one seat." The old man just groaned but didn't budge. The usher became more impatient. "Sir, if you don't get up from there I'm going to have to call the manager." Once again, the old man just groaned. The usher marched briskly back up the aisle, and in a moment he returned with the manager. Together the two of them tried repeatedly to move the old dishevelled man, but with no success. Finally they summoned the police. The officer surveyed the situation briefly then asked, "All right buddy what's your name?" "Fred," the old man moaned. "Where ya from, Fred?" asked the police officer. With pain in his voice Fred replied; "The balcony."

Saint Stevie the Scouse section Police cordoned off Liverpool City Centre this morning when a suspicious object was discovered in a car. It later turned out to be a tax disk ------------------------------------------------------------Saint Peter was manning the Pearly Gates when forty scousers showed up. Never having seen anyone from Liverpool at heaven's door, Saint Peter said he would have to check with God. After hearing the news, God instructed him to admit the ten most virtuous from the group. A few minutes later, Saint Peter returned to God breathless and said, "They're gone." "What? All of the Scousers are gone?" asked God. "No" replied Saint Peter "The Pearly Gates!" ------------------------------------------------------------Why does the River Mersey run through Liverpool? Because if it walked it would be mugged.

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of www.AbsoluteAxarquia.com ARIES: March 21-April 20 This month use the opportunities presented and see a series of successes come your way, in particular in your professional life. During the last 10 days of May you receive some long-awaited news.

TAURUS: April 21-May 21

In relationships, beware the charm of the new! The middle of May will be lucky for endeavours, sport and games, but don´t push it beyond the 20th. The last week of May could see an impromptu trip that may affect future decisions.

GEMINI: May 22-June 21

Important changes are indicated for Geminis this month. Forge head with ideas but keep them under your hat for now as competitors are waiting to pounce. A good time to formalise commitments or contracts at work.

CANCER: June 22-July 22

Frank and open discussion at home, allowing family to take on responsibilities, will help bring your innermost travel and work-related dreams and hopes to fruition.

LEO: July 23-August 23

Circumstances you cannot change have inhibited your happiness. This month you´re able to put them in place and bring about positive change in your life. Continue to accept invitations.

VIRGO: August 24-September 22

May could see Virgos making several trips away from home and attending important events. You easily attract love, money and interesting challenges, which should make it eas-

ier to move forward without looking back in the latter part of the month.

LIBRA: September 23 - October 22

If you´ve a project in mind, despite initial hard work, its time to move it underway. A time to commit to a personal relationship but be careful of signing contracts in other spheres of life.

SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21

Your plans may be interrupted mid-month so make sure you´re organised beforehand and able to meet unexpected, but beneficial, changes head-on.

SAGITTARIUS: November 22 - December 21

Time to tackle those you know to be cheating and breaking promises. If you don´t clarify doubt and misunderstanding now, the consequences will continue for a long time to come.

CAPRICORN: December 22-January 20

An injection of your Capricorn intuition, helps you reach wise decisions especially in the financial field. A great time for stability at work, business deals and general prosperity.

AQUARIUS: January 21-February 19

An old flame may reappear, causing excitement and the possibility of rekindling the fire. Use your head, and not just your heart, in forming decisions. Beware of scam artists.

PISCES: February 20-March 20

Beware of jealousy arising in personal partnership, either on your or your loved one´s part. Deal with it sensitively and honestly to keep love alive.
