I’m writing this editorial the day after Easter. My husband and I had a great time doing an Easter egg hunt in our house…we hid organic chocolate, almond butter filled bunnies, and solid dark chocolate eggs. Needless to say, now we’re feeling rather stuffed! However, given the enormity of Halloween, Valentines Day, and Thanksgiving here in the US, I was a little disappointed that they don’t celebrate Easter here in the same way. It comes and goes without a great deal of fuss or attention. There’s no massive public Easter egg hunts here for the children, like there are in the UK! But now Easter has gone, and so I’m focusing my attention on my upcoming trip back to Spain and the UK. I haven’t actually booked my flights yet, but I’m hoping to return for some of May, and all of June and July. Since I left Spain for the US my old life is still sitting there and it’s in serious need of some TLC! I have an apartment to clear out, clean up, and decorate, ready for renters. A car to sell. Many odds and ends to sort out. And lots of friends and family to see and catch up with. And even though the weather is warming up here in Ketchum, Idaho – and most of the snow has thankfully melted – I am looking forward to the guaranteed sunny, warm weather in Spain during the summer months, and some quality time lounging on the beach!

The Light: A Book of Knowing. Dadji, as he’s known by his fans and followers, is 95-yearsold and brimming with such pure Love and wisdom. What’s more, his chapter is going to be about one of my favourite topics ever: Love. Now that the summer is officially starting in Spain, I wish you all a happy and joy-filled summer and I hope to see some of you while I’m back!

Strange News high Five A British daredevil has been filmed performing a handstand on the edge of a 40-storey building in China. Scott Young, 25, travels the world performing extreme handstands on the edge of high-rise buildings - without a safety net or ropes. But his latest stunt is his scariest yet and is proving a viral hit on YouTube where it has been watched nearly 340,000 times. "Scott puts his life on the edge of a 40-storey building, with winds picking up, it was no easy task," explains the video caption."He pushed past all limitations to provide mad content and inspire the world." Basingstoke-born Mr Young is a member of 3run, a professional performance team that specialises in the 'arts of movement'.

Nude run A bus passenger's video of a naked woman jogging down a London high street is going viral on YouTube. More than 100,000 people have watched the clip of the woman running along Uxbridge Road in Ealing. Elijah Bailey said he was on the top deck of an E3 bus when he spotted the nude runner, reports Metro. His grainy video shows the woman passing convenience shops, takeaway shops and a cashpoint. "She had no remorse on her face. I'm still in shock," said Mr Bailey, a few hours after the incident. "Police stopped her outside Deans Park and she was so calm with it, like they wanted the time or some of her Lucozade." No arrest has been reported however, and the naked woman's behaviour remains a mystery.

What Religion Is Your Bra? A man walked into the ladies department and shyly walked up to the woman behind the counter and said, “I'd like to buy a bra for my wife.. “ “What type of bra?” asked the clerk. “Type?” inquires the man, “There's more than one type?” “Look around,” said the sales lady, as she showed a sea of bras in every shape, size, colour and material imaginable. “Actually, even with all of this variety, there are really only four types of bras to choose from.” Relieved, the man asked about the types. The saleslady replied: “There are the Catholic, Salvation Army, Presbyterian, and the Baptist types. Which one would you prefer?” Now totally befuddled, the man asked about the differences between them. The Saleslady responded, “It is all really quite simple.”

The Catholic type supports the masses; The Salvation Army type lifts the fallen; The Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright; The Baptist type makes mountains out of molehills. Have you ever wondered why A, B, C, D, DD, E, F, G, and H are the letters used to define bra sizes? If you have wondered why, but couldn't figure out what the letters stood for, it is about time you became informed! {A} Almost Boobs. {B} Barely there. {C} Can't Complain. {D} Dang! {DD} Double dang! {E} Enormous! {F} Fake. {G} Get a Reduction. {H} Help me, I've fallen and I can't get up! They forgot the German bra. Holtzemfromfloppen

De Cotta Law Property Talk with De Cotta Property With offices serving foreign residents and residential tourists across the Costa del Sol, and in the Canary Islands, some of Spain’s most important property markets, De Cotta Law has a good understanding of trends in the sector. De Cotta Law offers independent conveyancing services in English, Spanish, Danish, Dutch and French to investors wishing to buy here, or property owners wanting to sell their properties. The firms have seen a number of trends emerge: there is strong demand from Belgium, Netherlands and the Scandinavian countries: De Cotta Law has seen the recovery in property investment from these markets. Of course UK and German buyers remain, and growth is visible, but the number of Dutch, Belgian and Scandinavian buyers is notable. Location, Quality & Presentation: Clients are more discerning than ever, and are looking to invest in a well-built and maintained property, in a quality location. Vendors that maintain and present their properties well are having greater success with gaining a sale. Location, with relation to access to the airport, schools, beach, golf and countryside are more important as many investors are buying for lifestyle now, rather than to make money. Sellers are listing properties again: De Cotta Law has an independent sister company, De Cotta Property, based in Coín that offers real estate services to clients in southern Spain and beyond. With the influx of corporate investors in Spain, the emerging impact of the ‘Golden Visa’ and the strong recovery in the top end of the luxury property market, there are now growing signs of movement in the middle market. Owners who have been ‘sitting tight’ during the past few years are now listing their properties, as they recognise there is renewed movement and interest in southern Spain´s residential tourism and foreign resident property market. De Cotta Law offers FREE, private consultations to property buyers and sellers. There are offices in Mijas-Costa/Calahonda, Coín, Nerja

and Tenerife. Property services include conveyancing for buying & selling; Transfers & Leases, as well as Mortgage and Tax information.

bad habit of clawing at the furniture. Angela adds: “They can be trained to pee on a mat, but their pee smells skunk-like and they can also release a terrible odour when scared. "It's kind of like having a giant rat.”

Pet lover Angela Goodwin really does get ants in her pants - she dresses her two anteaters up in human clothes. Pua and Aurora spend their days sleeping in the washing machine of 37-year-old Angela's home in Oregon and their nights snouting around for ants and anything else they fancy. She says: "I started putting little sweaters on Pua and she didn't seem to mind so now she's got a whole wardrobe of clothes." Her unusual pets might look cuddly but their personal hygiene is not good and they have a

Pets Travel First Class! "People are more concerned for their pets than themselves when they travel and we saw a real gap in the market for high quality pet transport", says Simon Spettigue, director of Pets-trans, otherwise known as Prestige European Transport Services. Having studied for six months to pass the rigorous licensing approval, Simon and his partner, Pete Hillier, have cut no corners in commissioning state-of-the-art facilities for their transport vehicle. It has air conditioning and heating systems with back-up alarm, and satnav and tracking systems allow clients to track their pet's progress in real time and in any location. "If technology exists to add comfort and reassurance to pets and owners alike, why not use it?" enthuses Hillier. He is the more ‘techno’ of the pair and waxes lyrical about posting regular photos of their passengers on Facebook for their owners to see during their journey. "I've always been an extreme animal lover," Simon admits. "Now I have the perfect job! I love the moment when owners are reunited

with their pets, but I always build up a relationship with my little ones and I miss them too." All animals are fed twice a day, have permanent non-spill water bowls, comfortable beds and good-sized individual compartments. Rubber flooring is kind to slippery paws, a temperature-controlled environment adds to comfort and a system of double harnesses ensures security. The dogs are walked several times per day when their photos are taken and uploaded for their owners to see, “I can't always get them to smile, though!" admits Simon. "We started with the idea of taking rescue dogs to new homes in the UK," says Simon. "But we soon realised there was a niche in the market for high quality private pet transport as well. We now invite private owners to make a small contribution towards helping the homeless so we can combine these operations and provide the best possible service for all." The standard service can be supplemented to cater for special needs or those extra little luxuries that owners specify. "Owners are a choosy lot ─ sometimes they may want extra bedding (or their pet's own), larger compartments,

Pets Travel First Class (Continued) extra walks, special diets........I could go on," says Simon. "So we offer a luxury bespoke service to cater for these extras so that animals are as cared for and as comfortable as they would be at home ─ I can even see the day when we might have to commission beds from Louis Vuitton!" Bigger thinking has also led to an extension in the range of the operation. "We've already delivered to Switzerland, Germany, France and Belgium as well as the UK, and we recently took a cat from a yacht in Marbella to a yacht on the Thames!" enthuses Pete. The many testimonials Pete and Simon have already had in their one year in business point

to the care and quality of the service. "Two really good blokes,� says Violet Roberts of the UK. "The dogs all seemed so happy around you. Your van is absolutely spotless and the compartments and bedding are lovely and comfy - excellent service". With Pete Hillier as the brains of the operation and Simon Spettigue the heart, you could do a lot worse than entrust your treasured pet to this dream team!

Voting Rottweiler! Rottweiler dog is given right to vote in upcoming European Parliament elections Eight-year-old Zeus from Stockton-on-Tees gets a polling card after census mix-up puts him on the register of electors. Politics in Britain really has gone to the dogs after a Rottweiler was given the right to vote! Eight-year-old Zeus got a polling card through the post for the forthcoming European Parliament election on May 22. It is a novel way to boost turnouts but owner Russell Hoyle, 45, could not believe it when the card - addressed to Zeus Hoyle - dropped through the letterbox. Said Russell, from Norton, Stockton-on-Tees: “I can remember when the people came round to do the census and I told them: ‘There is myself and my wife and we have got Zeus living here as well and he is 63 in dog years'. “I did a double take when the polling card came through with three names on it because my son is only 17 and I knew it could not be him. “I just think it is totally hilarious. I know obviously it is a cock-up but me and my wife are going to vote and Zeus is coming with us.

“He has got his voting card.” Security guard Russell, who lives with wife Allison and son Peter, has been left wondering which way the pet would vote if he really could. He added: “I hope it's not Tory! "Zeus normally sits on the front doorstep. He just likes to watch the world go past. “He once worked with me and has looked after my back time and time again at work in sticky situations." "He wasn’t scared of nothing, there wasn’t a situation he would back away from but he is really just a gentle giant. “He is the most loveable, loyal big fella." “He is a very well-loved dog. If myself, my wife and Zeus were in the desert and we had only two pints of water, my wife would be going thirsty!"

Film iew R ev e m y En

As strange as it is inconclusive and frustrating, Enemy, directed by Denis Villeneuve, is one of his more confusing films. Jake Gyllenhaal plays the double role of an indecisive history teacher called Adam who discovers he bears an uncanny resemblance – down to a scar on his chest – to a daring wouldbe actor. It horrifies both of them and launches them into a deadly game. More than a thriller, this adaptation of Jose Saramago’s novel The

Double leads to an ending with a creepy shock. Overall it feels like an experimental outing whose disturbing artiness might find a home with cult and midnight audiences. The atmosphere is established from the opening pan over the Toronto skyline, a smog-filled city that could be inhabited by vampires. In a dazzling opener a bearded man (Gyllenhaal) joins others in an underground gentleman’s club where live sex theater is the attraction. The cover of a silver serving dish is taken away to reveal a fat, hairy tarantula. Then it’s crushed under a woman’s high heel. The main task for audiences will be making sense of it all and integrating the mysterious sex show, along with Adam’s nightmares, into the story. Star Rating - ***/*****

What Is The Bowen Technique? BOWTECH (the original Bowen Technique), is a safe, non-manipulative, fast and effective system for the treatment of pain, inflammation, joint discomfort, spinal misalignment, muscle, tendon and organ pain (internal ailments) and is an aid to healing. Because the Bowen Technique works on the whole body, it is possible to treat more than one ailment at the same time, whether they are acute or chronic. For example, if you are suffering from bronchitis, menstrual problems, back, shoulder or neck problems, migraine or any combination of these or other illnesses, they can all be successfully treated in one session. A second session is normally recommended as reinforcement. Even if you are suffering from a long-standing complaint, usually only a few sessions are necessary to improve your condition. The results are generally

long-lasting unless there is re-injury. Because of the body's high tolerance level of the Bowen Technique, the treatment is appropriate for everyone, from newborn babies to the Bianca Bojahr frail and elderly. A BOWTECH session consists of several series of gentle moves through lightweight clothing (or with direct skin contact) in any position comfortable to the patient. The BOWEN TECHNIQUE was developed in the late 50s by the late TOM BOWEN (19161992) in Geelong, Australia. See main advert below

TK’s I thought I would write in to tell of my Sunday lunch experience at TKs Restaurant in Torrox Costa I have been there many times before to eat, as they do the best ribs and wings for miles around. But it’s their roast dinners that I must speak about for quality and value for money! We chose a table outside on the large covered terrace. The nice wooden furniture makes a pleasant change from those horrible plastic tables and chairs, which never seem to be that secure. We had homemade soup to start — a large tureen of it —and today it was cream of vegetable. As usual, it was perfectly seasoned, tasty and there was plenty of it. Every Sunday, we were told, there is a different soup, lovingly made by Kerstin. We had already pre-booked lamb and pork for our mains, which are served with the appropriate mint and apple sauces respectively, together with an abundance of gravy in separate

boats ─ one for the lamb and one for the pork. All this is accompanied by Yorkies, roasties and four freshly-cooked vegetables to complete the dinner. There is always a good selection of desserts and on this occasion, the choice was — amongst others — fresh strawberries, fruit flan, homemade lemon drizzle cake and various crepes, all served with a choice of custard, cream or ice cream. It really is a delicious Sunday lunch and I can’t stress enough that it’s well worth a visit. It’s just 10.50€ for the three courses for pork, beef or chicken and 13.00€ for the lamb. Fantastic value! Thomas, the owner, told me that they now have a selection of homemade tapas available every day. These are always changing and are all priced at 1€. So, with the incredible Sunday lunches, the best ribs and wings around and now fresh homemade tapas ─ not to mention English brekkies ─ TKs really is the venue to visit. It is open every day except Wednesday. See main advert below

New Mum In Town - Easter Well, Easter (and it's bunny) has been and gone, and, amazingly, the rain held off, well just! It was a week of beach fun and games, with the odd procession thrown in. But, the main event was, of course, Easter Sunday; Jazmin's first proper one! Normally, Jazmin would not be allowed chocolate (boooooo Mummy I hear you say...I know I know), but Miss J certainly took advantage of the Easter treats! We went to Yaya and yayo's house for a BBQ lunch, for which, the heavens kindly opened throughout. It was fabulous though, as we were sat outside under the roofed terrace, warm as toast whilst it was raining around us; very Sunday cortijo style! Couldn't do that in the UK! After several "chocolate" pleas, Jazmin finally got to do her first Easter egg hunt. Haha, what

fun - she loved rummaging through the flowers, trampling on the mud and racing Mummy to collect the golden eggs, im not quite sure who enjoyed it more! Reconnecting with my inner child through my Daughter is awesome! Baby girl is a clever little one though as, instead of placing the eggs in the Easter basket, she scoffed the lot (just incase mummy took them away I guess) and finished up with a Cheshire Cat style grin, chocolate moustache (and extreme sugar high) - if only she was as eager to munch on a carrot! All in all, a great Easter was had by all. Hope you guys reading also enjoyed the Easter break! Next month.....no more nappies; wish me luck!

Brrriilliiaaannttt! A little lady, well into her seventies, slowly enters the front door of a sex shop. Obviously very unstable on her feet, she wobbles the few feet across the store to the counter. Finally arriving at the counter and grabbing it for support, stuttering she asks the sales clerk, "Dooo youuuu have dilllldosss?" The clerk, politely trying not to burst out laughing, replies, "Yes we do have dildos. Actually we carry many different models." The old woman then asks: "Doooo youuuu carrryy aaa pppinkk onnee, tttenn inchessss lllong

Medical Thermography Woman’s Health Breast Thermography – A valuable assessment of breast cancer risk Centro Mar y Salud, El Morche 8, 9 and 13th of May Recently I have seen a sharp increase in enquiries by women regarding thermography. More and more of you are questioning the value of mammography as an accurate test for discovering breast cancer. In several of my clients, mammography totally missed the cancer although a lump was clearly felt. Many women opt out, because they find it too painful and are worried about damaging their breasts by getting them squashed and irradiated with Xrays. Breast thermography is an imaging procedure used to determine risk of developing breast cancer or to detect early changes in the blood flow around the breasts that could indicate tumour formation. Breast thermography is a great option for women of all ages and shapes, including younger women who may have dense breast tissue, women with fibrocystic breasts and even women with implants.

Breast thermography provides you with valuable baseline information which can help evaluate future breast health and potential risk factors over time. Breast thermography is one of the best early detection systems available today. The advantages of early assessment of risk factors could be life-saving.

Yorkshire Community To Resurrect Maypole Dancing A group of girls from Carleton-in-Craven are learning the traditional dances of the Maypole, which has fallen out of fashion A group of youngsters are determined to revive Maypole dancing - 25 years since the tradition has been taught in their community. The 12 girls from Carleton-in-Craven, North Yorkshire, are being taught May Day songs and dances amid fears the tradition could be lost forever if it is not passed on. Sarah Churcher, 34, is leading the initiative and part of a team of women passing on the skills to a new generation. Mum-of-two Sarah said: "I think the excitement of going around the village and showing the villagers what we had done was a real treat. "It felt like a really special thing to be involved in. Solicitor-by-day Sarah became involved after answering the rallying cry of her community to

revive the tradition - before it's too late. So far, 12 girls have begun learning the songs and dances in advance of this year's May Day performance. But the revival is going further than just the classes - with a local joiner offering to make the maypole and the village pantomime group stepping forward to make the costumes. As a child, Sarah was taught the songs and dances of the Maypole after school alongside her female classmates by the ladies of the village ahead of an annual performance. She said: "We used to go from one end of the village to the other and stop and dance and sing. "People would come out of their houses and watch and then we would move on. It took a couple of hours during the morning. "It was very popular around the village. People came out to support children of the village. The invitation was open to boys but only girls are taking part - something the group hopes will change next year. Unlike the travelling Maypoles of years gone by, this year's will remain in one place.

Charity Event Along with my daughter Teresa and her friend Jo, I will walk the Beacons Way between 26 - 30 May. This is a walk apparently more demanding than walking in Exmoor, Dartmoor, the North York Moors, the Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales, but not as challenging as Snowdonia, the Lake District or many parts of Scotland. The route measures 100mls/160kms from Holy Mountain to Bethlehem, and we will walk it in five days. My mother died 40 years ago from an illness for which we had no name. We now know it as MND (Motor Neurone Disease). My sister Cynthia fell ill some years later and was diagnosed with MND but we were assured at that time that it was not familial (hereditary). However, by the time my brother Robert (Bob) was stricken with it, we knew it was. My sister Joyce was diagnosed soon afterwards and both she and Bob passed away within days of each other in October 2012. As you can imagine, alongside the deep loss we felt we were somewhat in shock that we have this dreadful gene running rife through our family. We felt we had to do something - but

what could we do? Other family members got busy fundraising, but I knew it would be difficult for me, living in rural Spain. However, I hit on the idea of a sponsored trek. I am not a natural walker, and this is the biggest challenge I have undertaken. However, I am determined to make it and it is usually my determination which carries me through. So far all is going well - I have six black toenails and several blisters on my feet but I have lost weight! My husband Brian is as always a great support to me and when not helping me train, he is putting up with me being obsessed with this challenge. He, along with Teresa's son Harry, seven, will be providing back-up for us during the walk. Please if you would like to sponsor me I would gratefully ask you to do so by visiting my donations page: justgiving.com/Gill-Tilcock The Sentinella Team wish you the very best of luck with your challenge Gill x

Helping Axarquia 2013 Income Tax declaration: where and when to present it. The 2013 income tax campaign is about to begin, and here are some basic things to know: Who has to file a declaration - Taxpayers who have received the following income in the 2013 financial year do not have to file: - €22.000 per year when it originates from one single payer. - €11,200 per year, when it originates from more than one single payer, provided that the sum of the amounts received from the second and subsequent payers, in order of amounts, exceed as a whole the sum of €1,500 per year. IMPORTANT: If you are a fiscal resident in Spain and your pension does not exceed 11,200 Euros, you are not liable to file an Income Tax return. This regulation normally affects taxpayers who receive pensions from foreign countries such as England, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, etc. However, when you receive earnings from pensions over 11,200 Euros, you are liable to declare this income.

We would advise all fiscal residents, if their pension is below 11,200 Euros, to complete a NIL Tax Return, in order to prove you are a fiscal resident which will help you in the future. Sending the draft - From 1 April 2014, the Agencia Estatal de Administración Tributaria (Spanish Tax Authorities) will make the draft or the tax information for the Personal Income Tax declaration available to taxpayers by computer, through the electronic office of the Agencia Estatal de Administración Tributaria, which can be accessed through the website of the Agencia Tributaria (Tax Authorities), or directly at https://www.agenciatributaria.gob.es. Deadline for submitting the declaration - If the declaration is submitted electronically via the internet: from 23 April to 30 June, both inclusive. If submitted by any other means: from 5 May to 30 June, both inclusive. The information provided in this article is not intended to be legal advice, but merely conveys general information related to legal issues. See main advert below

& t i u Fr Facts ries Veg lackber B

Childhood countryside ‘blackberrying’ walks could have done you more good than you imagine! This wild-growing fruit not only tastes good, but also carries several benefits for your health The dark colour in blackberries indicates a high concentration of antioxidants. Blackberries are good for anyone trying to maintain or lose weight in a nutritious manner; a cup of raw blackberries has 62 calories, less than a gram of fat, 2 grams of protein, no cholesterol and only 1 gram of sodium. It also gives you 7.6 grams of fibre -- more fibre than a cup of bran flakes! Blackberries can give you quick energy, and their fibre content can help you stay full until your next meal, preventing you from wanting to snack on more fattening foods.

The leaves can also be used in a refreshing cup of tea or enhanced as a therapeutic drink. Not everyone will like the flavour, so to mask the bitter taste, honey or another form of sweetener may be added. The healthy dose of vitamin K aids in muscle relaxing, so some women use the berries to alleviate labour pains. As part of a regular diet, the juice can also be used to regulate menstruation as it is very effective in helping blood to clot.

Blackberry juice may be good for your heart. A 2003 study discovered antioxidant activity by blackberry juice helps vascular tissue damaged by free radicals induced by peroxynitrite, an oxidant that can damage or destroy DNA and cells. The dark blue colour ensures blackberries have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all fruits, but be aware the berries are best consumed in their natural state to get the full benefits. Consumption of blackberries can help to promote the healthy tightening of tissue, which is a great non-surgical procedure to make skin look younger. The high tannin content of blackberries provides a number of benefits to reduce intestinal inflammation, alleviate haemorrhoids and soothe the effects of diarrhoea. It is important to incorporate berries in your diet in a variety of ways. Have them as a snack or in your cereal or even as a smoothie

Ruta de la Pasa

RUTA DE LA PASA or the route of the raisin is steeped in history, you can almost hear the cry STAND AND DELIVER as one of the most feared outlaws, El Bizco, gallops towards you on his black Andalucian stallion, snorting, foaming at the mouth and stamping its mighty hoofs! We start safely back in the 21st century at Moclinejo some 450 metres above sea level, 20km from Málaga and 32kms from VélezMálaga. If you drive into the village itself there are plenty of places to sample the delicious local wine, but be warned it’s stronger than you think! First of all to get to the village turn off the A7 autovia at km 256 for Torre de Benagalbón and take the MA-107 and then the MA-108 up past the village to Moclinejo which should take about 10 minutes. The route leads on up the steep and winding road towards Almáchar with breaktaking views. Marking the entrance to the village a huge bunch of grapes looms out of a fountain. Once there, a good snack is a handful of raisins as you walk its steep streets. On the first Saturday of September this village throbs with tourists who come to sample the cold garlic soup at the annual Festival of Ajo Blanco. We continue our route by turning left at the bridge up towards El Borge where apart from our bandits birth house, don´t miss the parish church of Our Lady of the Rosary on the Plaza Mirador a Gothic-Renaissance structure of the sixteenth century. Driving onwards and upwards we are now only a few kilometres from our next stop The Foun-

AS2802

tain of Paradise, Cútar, known for its oil and raisins. This village remembers its Moorish origins every year at the Monfi Festival where history, culture and traditions unfold in the streets with displays of falconry, music, tea ceremonies and belly dancing. Our next port of call is the famous mountain top village of Comares. Most of the year, if the river bed is dry you can drive from Cútar down to the river and come off again at Salto del Negro bridge, turn left and then right up the 7km road to Comares. For the less adventurous the route continues down into Benamargosa, turn left after the bridge and continue until you see the left turn up to Comares. The first watering hole on the way up to the village is the Mayors Bar, Atalaya where you can sample delightful local cuisine while taking in magnificent vistas down to the coast at Torre del Mar. Further up in the main square do stop to take photos of the view and see if you can spot the villages of Cútar, Iznate, Benamocarra, Vélez-Málaga, Torre del Mar, Benamargosa, Canillas de Aceituno and Alcaucin. Whilst up there make sure to stroll into the beautiful courtyard of the Molino de los Abuelos Hotel for a well deserved cool drink before descending back towards Málaga and the last village of the route Totalán. To get to Totalán you need to turn left just before Olías. Totalán is a place whose gastronomy is closely linked to the Mediterranean diet with Gazpachuelo, a stew of chickpeas, Gazpacho and the famous Chanfaina stew with peppers, sausage, black pudding, pork and offal. Stomach full it´s time to head back to the coast but don´t forget the shopping centre at the entrance back onto the autovia Centro Commercial Rincon de la Victoria where if you are not already too exhausted you can shop ´til you drop!

Property Of The Month Totalán

250,000€

This 6 bedroom townhouse can be seen as an ideal family town house close to all amenities but the property is also perfectly suitable as a rental business as the current owners created separate metres for electricity and water. All 3 levels have their own separate entrances. 327m² built surface. The ground floor can be used as a small B&B with 2 separate bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. The 1st floor comprises 2 bedrooms and a bathroom, sunny terrace, small garden/patio and a breakfast area for the B&B guests. There is also a kitchen, storage room, separate toilet and a living room with 2 french windows leading to the balcony. On the second floor there is a second 2 bedroom apartment which is directly accessible from the street higher up. The layout is a copy of the 1st apartment on the first floor. Totalán is a very Spanish village with only 650 habitants, the nearest beach is Cala de Moral at 7 km, Malaga city at only 20 kms and the international airport is just a 40 min drive

As the Light turns denser and moves into levels of manifestation its colour changes and adapts. Though all things were manifested under God’s original intention of Light, as Light moves through the levels below the Spirit level it takes on a magnetic quality. We can attract and direct the magnetic Light. Things can be changed, moved and manipulated via our intention. Therefore, the magnetic Light does not always work for our higher good because we can use mind and emotion to manipulate it. The magnetic Light can be used in both positive and negative ways and it adjusts according to our intention and consciousness. We must learn to take care when working with the Light because we can create negatively with it too. One reason people meditate and follow a spiritual path is to get beyond the magnetic Light and access the Spiritual Light. One key to achieving this is to reach a detached, neutral place where we are open to the highest good. Potentially, anyone can reach this state. When we look historically across the different religious traditions and metaphysical paths, many people tapped into that higher Light and were channels and instruments for it. To this day, when we read the poetry of Rumi, for example, his words and the energy behind them take us into that higher Light and give us a sense of inspiration, joy and love. Rumi merged into that higher Light and his subsequent work was radiated. It seems to touch nearly everyone. On the other hand, some people may be moved by a certain piece of music, while it does nothing for many other people. In this case the music is most likely reflecting the magnetic Light from one of the levels of manifest creation. That does not mean it is negative; it can still be beautiful and powerful, but not as universally inspiring. The higher Light will only work for the highest good. Our prayers go forth into the universe and they are always answered, but the level they are answered from depends on where we pray from and the clarity of our intention. If there is too much emotional demand in our prayer, it will most likely be answered from a lesser level of the Light.

Joya Shoes If anyone out there is finding it difficult or impossible to buy Joya shoes after the shop in Eroski closed down, well our amazingly clever friends at Arkwrights in Puente don Manuel have managed to do what they do best and have found a supplier

We could not find a shop anywhere near, the closest being Seville but they didn't have the ones he wanted. In desperation I telephoned all the telephone numbers in Spain, which eventually gave us a supplier who was willing to let us have the shoes on a sale or return”.

Linda says, “When the shop in Eroski closed down (the only outlet in this area) we tried everywhere to locate these shoes for Geoff, to replace the ones we had bought the year prior.

They don’t just claim to be 99% successful in obtaining the unobtainable in Spain, they are! Call: Linda for more details 952 519 780 See main advert on pages 60 & 61

Full Name: Ursula Andress Birthday: 19 March 1936 Birth Place: Ostermundigen, Switzerland age: 78 Parents: Anna, who was Swiss, and Rolf Andress, a German diplomat who was expelled from Switzerland for political reasons. He disappeared during World War II. Marital Status: Married to John Derek 1957– 66; partners: Harry Hamlin (1978–1982); Lorenzo Rispoli (1983–present) Andress ran away with an Italian actor at the tender age of 17, then returned home after her parents intervened. She studied painting, sculpture and dance in Paris. She started her film career with small roles in Italian farces which invariably focused on her impressive physical attributes. Eventually, due in part to the patronage of paramour Marlon Brando, she signed a contract with Columbia Pictures and came to the United States. Film icon James Dean became involved with the-then 19-year-old Andress. On the day he died, in 1955, he asked her to go with him to San Francisco in his Porsche 550 Spyder, but after talking to John Derek, he realised that she felt in love with the latter, so he left Los Angeles without her. She also had a long-running affair with French

In 1980, she had a son, Dimitri, with American actor Harry Hamlin, her co-star in the film Clash of the Titans. In the iconic Dr No film, Andress played Honey Rider, a shell diver and James Bond's object of desire. She rose out of the Caribbean Sea in a white bikini sporting a large diving knife on her hip. Due to her heavy Swiss-German accent, her character's voice was provided by Nikki van der Zyl, while the calypso was sung by Diana Coupland. In 2003, in a UK Survey by Channel 4, her entrance in Dr. No was voted number1 in the 100 Greatest Sexy Moments poll. Andress won the Golden Globe Award for New Star of the Year in 1964 for her performance in Dr No. In 1965, she posed nude for Playboy. In 2006, she celebrated her 70th birthday on board the Royal Yacht Britannia in Edinburgh with a company of an international crowd of celebrities. Andress was the original choice for the role of Sophie in Sophie's Choice (1982) but Meryl Streep, who went on to win a Best Actress Oscar for her performance, was cast instead. She was paid $10,000 for her role in Dr No. Andress was voted "Best Bond Girl of All Time" by the readers of the Daily Mail in February 2008. She once described her wedding to John Derek as a nightmare, marrying him in a small Las Vegas chapel with a cab driver as their best man and a ring that didn't fit.

A lungfish usually measures around 17cm. Lungfish are not the only species of fish that a can breathe out of water, but they are the best s i it at doing so. In fact, most have such weak gills h n s ug a ho e it c onth that they would die if they weren't able to reach t l the surface. e.

eA h T

When the shallow water it lives in evaporates during dry spells, a lungfish secretes a thin mucus layer around itself that dries into a cocoon.

Fossil records of this Neoceratodus group date back 380 million years, around the time when the higher vertebrate classes were beginning to evolve.

It can live out of water in this cocoon for up to a year, but usually only until rains return. While out of water, its lungs enable it to breathe air. Lungfish may hibernate by chewing into the soil and debris at the bottom of a waterway, ejecting mud from the gills as it burrows down. It digs one to nine inches below the surface, then wiggles around to create a bulb-shaped chamber. When the chamber is complete, the fish rests with its nose pointing upward. In water, it can survive up to four years in this hibernation state; its metabolic rate slows and energy comes from the breakdown of muscle tissue.

Carmen Silvia Solicitors - www.axarquialawyers.com Foreign property investors are confident Low prices and safeguards in our judicial system make Spain an ideal place for foreigners to acquire a second residence. Spain’s image in the outside world, both for rural and urban housing, is improving since lawyers, notaries and mercantile or asset registrars all offer guarantees. Now that prices are low, it is an excellent time to make a real estate investment, whether as a holiday residence or a permament retirement home. Foreigners have to fulfill a number of requirements, though. First, the buyer has to obtain a foreigner identification number (NIE). This is essential in order to pay taxes and get the property registered in the buyer’s name. If the seller is a foreigner not fiscally resident in Spain, the purchaser is obliged to retain 3 per

cent of the purchase amount and deposit it in the Spanish Public Treasury. This amount can be claimed back later by the seller. The buyer has to pay Spanish tax on capital transfers, currently 8 per cent of the purchase price. However, since in Spain the taxable basis and acquisition values rarely match, the buyer has the option to pay taxes either on the fiscal or acquisition value. The Treasury Department will produce an additional assessment, which can be challenged in order to avoid overpayment of taxes on a higher current market value. If a property is acquired directly from a developer, the buyer only has to pay for document and registration fees at 1.5 per cent of the total purchase, since the 10 per cent IVA would have been paid by the property developer.

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of www.AbsoluteAxarquia.com ARIES: March 21-April 20 May is a challenging time for Arians but with opportunity to reflect upon your new sense of identity and an ability to view yourself as others see you. A time to shine and to lead and also to be graceful in sharing the spotlight TAURUS: April 21-May 21 Herculean tasks and chaos bring exhaustion for Taureans this month causing you to retreat, become contemplative and to prefer not to interact with the world for the time being. A time to reassess what is of value GEMINI: May 22-June 21 Your style of living and ways of doing things are more appropriate to a life that no longer fits your circumstances. To learn the real value of friendship and self-fulfillment, it`s time to cease attempting control of all that surrounds you. Freedom awaits if you can achieve this CANCER: June 22-July 22 Nothing is straight forward for Cancerians this month but your courage, determination and inner strength, not often appreciated by others, assist you during the transformative battles you encounter LEO: July 23-August 23 Your interests broaden this month as prior doubts are eliminated and a spiritual anchor takes hold. A sense of peace can be reached as you let go of past resentments and move into the present and future VIRGO: August 24-September 22 Your task this month is to cast your thoughts, feelings and actions into a matrix of universal love and become a vessel to carry the Light more efficiently. This is a test with sacrifices but the reward is to be truly awake

LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 Your days of proudly being a loner will end as you feel less threatened and less of a failure which was never, in reality, the case. Laughter and love fill your heart as your consideration and sensibility towards others grows SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 May is a time for Scorpio to come out of hiding and enjoy the social affairs they´ve recently declined. A good time too to organise and plan any outstanding projects. You will be noticed and very much appreciated SAGITTARIUS: November 22 - December 21 Be careful what you wish for because your secret Aladdin´s Lamp is about to make all your dreams come true. Just be aware that your great need to be popular can dissipate your excellent creative energies CAPRICORN: December 22 - January 20 Whether you seek them or reject them, relationships are to the fore for Capricorn during May, particularly of the romantic nature. Whichever way you want them to go, its best to get your head out of work mode and deal with them AQUARIUS: January 21 - February 19 Always afraid of losing your freedom Aquarius but do you remember why you seek it? Your wanderings produce scattered loose ends and nervousness, which your family can be relieved to know, with time will consolidate into knowledge and understanding PISCES: February 20 - March 20 With carefully guarded secrets, it can be difficult to know the real Piscean. You enjoy testing the limits of other people´s values, often standing on the threshold of acceptance, but it´s time to come out and have some fun

) : a h a Jokes h A chicken and an egg are lying in bed. The chicken takes out a cigarette and begins to smoke. The egg, pissed off, takes one look at the chicken, rolls over and pulls the blanket over him and says, "I guess we answered that question!" ---------------------------------------------------------------A guy walks into a bar with an alligator. It's about 10 feet long. The bartender flips out and says, "Hey buddy, you gotta get that son of a bitch outta here. It's going to bite one of my customers and I'm going to get sued." The guy says, "No no no, it's a tame alligator. I'll prove it to you." He picks up the alligator and puts it on the bar. Then he unzips his pants, pulls out his package and sticks it in the alligator's mouth. The alligator just keeps his mouth open. After about 5 minutes, he pulls it out of the alligator's mouth and zips up his pants and says, "See, I told you it was a tame alligator. Anybody else want to try it?" The drunk down at the end of the bar says, "Yeah, I'd like to try it but I don't think I can hold my mouth open that long!" ---------------------------------------------------------------An atheist was taking a walk through the woods, admiring all that evolution had created. "What majestic trees! What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals!", he said to himself. As he was walking along the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. When he turned to see what the cause was, he saw a 7foot grizzly charging right towards him. He ran as fast as he could. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was closing, He ran even faster, crying in fear. He looked over his shoulder again, and the bear was even closer. His heart was pounding and he tried to run even faster. He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up, but saw the bear right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw and raising his right paw to strike him. At that moment, the Atheist cried out "Oh my God!...." Time stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent. Even the river stopped moving. As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky, "You deny my existence for all of these years; teach others I don''''t exist; and even credit creation to a cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help you out of this predica-

ment? Am I to count you as a believer?" The atheist looked directly into the light "It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask You to treat me as Christian now, but perhaps could you make the bear a Christian?" "Very well," said the voice. The light went out. The river ran again. And the sounds of the forest resumed. And then the bear dropped his right paw ..... brought both paws together...bowed his head and spoke: "Lord, for this food which I am about to receive, I am truly thankful." ---------------------------------------------------------------Two sisters, a blonde and a brunette, inherit the family ranch. Unfortunately, after just a few years, they are in financial trouble. In order to keep the bank from repossessing the ranch, they need to purchase a bull so they can breed their own stock. The brunette balances their checkbook, then decides to take their last $600 dollars out west to another ranch where a man has a prize bull for sale. Upon leaving, she tells her sister, "If I decide to buy the bull, I'll contact you to drive out after me and haul it home." The brunette arrives at the man's ranch, inspects the bull, and decides she does want to buy it. The man tells her that he can sell it for $599, no less. After paying him, she drives to the nearest town to send her sister a telegram. She walks into the telegraph office, and says, "I want to send a telegram to my sister telling her that I've bought a bull for our ranch. I need her to hitch the trailer to our pick-up truck and drive out here so we can haul it home." The telegraph operator explains that he'll be glad to help her, then adds, "It's just 99 cents a word." Well, with only $1 left after paying for the bull, the brunette realizes that she'll only be able to send her sister one word. After thinking for a few minutes, she nods, and says, "I want you to send her the word, comfortable." The telegraph operator shakes his head. "How is she ever going to know that you want her to hitch the trailer to your pick-up truck and drive out here to haul that bull back to your ranch if you just write, comfortable?" The brunette explains, "My sister's a blonde. She'll read it slowly."

Jokes h a ha :) If I had one cricket ball in one hand, and another cricket ball in the other hand, what would I have? A bloody big cricket. ------------------------------------------------------------Tired of constant blonde jokes, a blonde dyes her hair brown. She then goes for a drive in the country and sees a shepherd herding his sheep across the road. "Hey, shepherd, if I guess how many sheep are here, can I keep one?" The shepherd is puzzled but agrees. She blurts out "352!" He is stunned but keeps his word and allows her to pick a sheep. "I'll take this one," she says proudly. "It's the cutest!" "Hey lady," says the shepherd, "if I guess your real hair colour, can I have my dog back?" ------------------------------------------------------------A funeral service is held for a woman who just passed away. As the pallbearers carry the casket out, they accidentally bump into a wall. They hear a faint moan. They open the casket and find that the woman is actually alive. She lives for 10 more years and then dies. They have another funeral for her. At the end of the service, the pallbearers carry out the casket. As they are walking, the husband cries out, "Watch out for the wall!" ------------------------------------------------------------Q: If your wife is shouting at the front door and your dog is barking at the back door, who do you let in first? A: The dog, of course. At least he'll shut up after you let him in. ------------------------------------------------------------An engineer crosses a road when a frog calls out to him, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess." He bends over, picks up the frog and puts it in his pocket. The frog speaks up again and says, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week." The engineer takes the frog out of his pocket,

smiles at it and returns it to the pocket. The frog then cries out, "If you kiss me and turn me back, I'll do whatever you say!" Again the engineer takes the frog out, smiles at it and puts it back into his pocket. Finally, the frog asks, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess, I'll stay with you for a month and do whatever you say. What more do you want?" The engineer says, "Look, I'm an engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that's cool!"

Saint Stevie the Scouse section A Muslim, Hindu and a Scouser have been walking through the desert for 2 days with no food or shelter....

The Hindu and Scouser go to the room, settle in bed and ten minutes later there is a knock on the door...... the Scouser opens the door and it is the Muslim. He say's ''I know I drew the short straw but no one said there was a pig in the barn.... no way can I sleep in there with a pig in there. The Scouser and the Hindu draw straws again and the Hindu loses and heads off for the barn..... Ten minutes later there is a knock on the door.... the Scouser opens it and it is the Hindu.... ''Look, I know I lost the draw, but no one said there was a cow in the barn, no way can I stay in the barn with a cow in there..... The scouser agrees to go in the barn.....
