I’d like to start this month’s editorial but letting our loyal readers know that there may soon be employment positions available at The Sentinella. To enquire and for more details please email me direct on I might be based in the USA right now, but as the owner of the magazine, I’m still present in spirit, and probably in person again soon for a short break! In other news, I’m now a married woman! Have to admit, it initially felt a tad strange to be a wife, but now, a couple of weeks on, I’m relishing the sacred loving union between Terry, my husband, and I. Our rooftop wedding went fantastically and my supportive parents came all that distance to watch their youngest daughter tie the knot. It was such a magical day all round and we didn’t want it to end. We finished with a evening soak in the hot tub and a glass of Limoncello! What’s more, I felt the beautiful love that some of you sent our way as we left behind singledom to unite as One Heart. We’ve taken a few days here in Sun Valley, as a “mini-moon” and hoping to get away to Hawaii in January for a proper honeymoon. I’ll keep you posted on all the news and goings-ons from here.

Strange News Boy Birth A two-year-old boy has undergone an operation to 'give birth' to his own parasitic twin. Doctors in China were left stunned after discovering the toddler was carrying an undeveloped foetus inside his stomach. Xiao Feng arrived at hospital with a severely bloated stomach and was rushed to the operating room with breathing difficulties. The unborn foetus, which took up two thirds of the boy's stomach, measured 20cm in width and had also formed a spine and limbs, as well as fingers and toes. Experts believe that the parasitic twin would have killed Xiao if it had been left untreated. Monkey Business A US news presenter had to show her professionalism when a baboon grabbed her breast during a live TV report. Sabrina Rodriguez of Fox 40 news was doing a report from the Lodi Grape Festival in Sacramento, California, on why baboons like grapes. But the baboon, called Mickey, got a little too friendly and grabbed her right breast as she was doing a live piece to camera. Ms Rodriguez did her best to laugh it off, saying: "He's trying to cop a feel a little bit." Mickey turns to the camera and opens his mouth to give a wide grin - but keeps his hand where it is. So with a baboon's hand on her chest, Ms Rodriguez closed her segment saying: "Join us soon when we'll be learning a bit about why baboons like grapes."

Fantastic !! Dads Response I took my dad to the shopping centre the other day to buy some new shoes (he is 66). We decided to grab a bite at the food court. I noticed he was watching a teenager sitting near to him. The teenager had spiked hair in all different colours - green, red, orange, and blue. My dad kept staring at her. The teenager kept looking and would find my dad staring every time. When the teenager had had enough, she sarcastically asked: "What's the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?"

Knowing my Dad, I quickly swallowed my food so that I would not choke on his response; I knew he would have a good one! In classic style he responded without batting an eyelid .... "Got stoned once and shagged a parrot. Was just wondering if you might be my daughter."

De Cotta Law Finding lost relatives - heirs to Spanish property. By De Cotta Law As a law firm serving the international community in Spain, we are often approached by ‘heirhunters’ or companies who specialise in tracing lost relatives. Over the last 30 or more years of immigration, residence and property purchase by British nationals many properties have been purchased. In some cases these people have lost contact with their families and it is not until their estate in England is dealt with that a Spanish property comes to light. Another way in which ‘ownerless’ properties appear is when a court in Spain auctions the property to recover debts. Other examples would be where there is a debt with the Community of owners or the Town Hall and after the property is auctioned there is a balance held by the court which can be paid to any heirs or relatives of the deceased. If the owner of the property died intestate there are rules as to which members of the family would receive. You may have seen the professional heirhunter programmes on television and perhaps an aunt or uncle or other family members die owning assets in Spain. Searches to trace fam-

ily are not unduly expensive, though in Spain a date and place of death is required to obtain a death certificate and begin the process of locating heirs and property. However the Spanish property registry can be searched by name only and this can be the first step in obtaining more information about the estate. Today with the prevalence of internet genealogy and family searches you can often make a start and then instruct professional companies to complete the search. In Spain there is less information available on the internet but agents can often trace individuals relying on property searches and visits to property. Equally if you are aware of an abandoned property and want to trace the heirs or family of the deceased owner this can be done by tracing agents. One example would be where an abandoned property within a community causes hygiene and safety problems for neighbours.

Perfect Alarm S.L Home Security Cameras - Home security cameras serve as a deterrent to criminals, who tend to have second thoughts about any kind of break-in once cameras and warnings are spotted. In the event the criminal were to break in, everything would be recorded, which makes it easier for the police to track. If you set up a camera at the main door or gate, you can see who is at the door before you get there. You can easily programme the camera system to view events via computer or handheld and be sent a message if an event should take place. Link your security cameras with your security system and you can even control lights and appliances in your home while you are away, to give the appearance you are at home! You can help resolve questions or conflicts (eg did the pool man come as contracted? Did the gardener, maintenance person come? Did your house get cleaned as specified? etc.). Best of all, you will experience peace of mind knowing your house will be in one piece when you return, so you can relax and enjoy your time away. Contact the experts from ยกPERFECT Alarm!

Interesting Facts - Unlike their fellow-Scandinavian neighbours to the west, the Finns are not a Germanic people but rather speak a language related to Estonian, some languages of Siberia and, more distantly, Hungarian. Despite its substantial size, Finland is relatively thinly-populated. Coniferous forests and more than 180,000 lakes grace Finland, which maintains a fleet of icebreakers to keep ports open during the long winters. Finland is the only Nordic EU member to use the euro as the national currency. A eurozone member since 2002, Finland has an export-driven economy. Phone maker Nokia is its biggest company. After six centuries of union with Sweden, Finland came under Russian rule in 1809. The Finns declared independence in 1917 but lost territory to the Soviets in World War II. Close economic ties between the two nations existed until the USSR was dissolved in 1991. Since then Finland has strengthened links with Western Europe by joining the EU.

Film iew Rev lanes P

After Pixar’s Cars, Disney now has aimed sky high and made a film about Planes. Unfortunately the effort nose dives from the opening frame. Dusty Crophopper (Dane Cook) always wanted to be a racing plane and win the Wings Across the World tournament. However, in reality he ends up being a crop duster far away from his dreams. He fails to qualify the first round despite support from his fuel truck friend Chug (Brad Garrett) and Dottie (Teri Hatcher). By chance he gets a second chance at the title to compete against the best entries from around the world that includes Indian Ishani (Priyanka

Chopra), Bulldog (John Cleese), Spanish El Chupacabra (Carlos Alazraqui), and the crowd favorite Ripslinger (Roger Craig Smith). Carlos Alazraqui does a fine job with his Spanish voiceover and shares a fun camaraderie with Cook. If you intend to take your kids to watch it, then they might learn a lesson or two. There are ample morals and veiled messages in the film. Animation is average, but a few scenes do impress. The plot is flimsy and the 3D unnecessary. In a day and age where a good script has become the life line for a film, Planes goes back in time and gives us an uninspiring tale. Everything is super predictable. Strictly for kids, adults will be bored with the lack of any witty or even remotely engaging banter. Star Rating – **/*****

cabin. Had a scrumptious meal complete with caviar and champagne. He asked me to stay the night, but I declined. Told him I could not be unfaithful to my husband. Dear Diary - Day 5 Pool again today. Got sunburned, and I went inside to drink at piano-bar, stayed there for rest of day. Captain saw me, bought me several large drinks.

Dear Diary - day 2 Entire day at sea, beautiful. Saw whales and dolphins. Met the Captain today -seems like a very nice man.

Really is quite charming. Again asked me to visit his cabin for the night. Again I declined.

Dear Diary - day 3 At the pool today. Did some shuffleboard, hit golf balls off the deck. Captain invited me to join him at his table for dinner. Felt honored and had a wonderful time. He is very attractive and attentive.

He told me that if I did not let him have his way with me, he would sink the ship... I was shocked.

Dear Diary - Day 4 Won $800.00 in the ship's casino. Captain asked me to have dinner with him in his own

Dear Diary - Day 6 Today I saved 2600 lives. Twice.

Beer By Seven Year Olds A handful of 7 year old children were asked 'What they thought of beer'. Some interesting responses, but the last one is especially good.

'My Dad gets funny on beer. He is funny. He also wets his pants sometimes, so he shouldn't have too much. Sarah, 7 years old

'I think beer must be good. My dad says the more beer he drinks the prettier my mum gets.' Tim, 7 years old

'My Dad loves beer. The more he drinks, the better he dances. One time he danced right into the pool.' Lilly, 7 years old

'Beer makes my dad sleepy and we get to watch what we want on television when he is asleep, so beer is nice. ' Melanie, 7 years old 'My Mum and Dad both like beer. My Mum gets funny when she drinks it and takes her top off at parties, but Dad doesn't think this is very funny.' Luke, 7 years old ''My Mum and Dad talk funny when they drink beer and the more they drink the more they give kisses to each other, which is a good thing.' Toby, 7 years old

'I don't like beer very much. Every time Dad drinks it, he burns the sausages on the barbecue and they taste disgusting.' Ethan, 7 years old 'I give Dad's beer to the dog and he goes to sleep.' Shirley, 7 years old AND THE BEST RESPONSE 'My Mum drinks beer and she says silly things and picks on my father. Whenever she drinks beer she tells him to go bury his bone down the street again, but that doesn't make any sense.' Jack, 7 years

Shoulder pain is a common problem with a number of different causes. It's often a symptom of another problem.

There are a number of reasons why you might be experiencing shoulder pain, which include: • poor posture • frozen shoulder – a painful condition that reduces normal movement in the joint and can sometimes prevent movement in the shoulder altogether

Treating shoulder pain

• rotator cuff disorders – the rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint and help to keep it stable • shoulder instability – where the shoulder is unstable and has an unusually large range of movement • acromioclavicular joint disorders – conditions that affect the acromioclavicular joint, which is the joint at the top of the shoulder • osteoarthritis in the shoulder joints • a broken (fractured) bone, such as a fracture of the humerus (upper arm bone) or broken collarbone

Depending on the cause of your shoulder pain, you may need further treatment, such as: • physiotherapy • injections of corticosteroids – a type of medication that contains hormones • surgery (in some cases)

In some cases, pain in the shoulder isn't caused by a problem in the shoulder joint, but by a problem in another area, such as the neck, that is felt in the shoulder and upper back.

There are things you can do yourself to treat shoulder pain, including using painkillers such as ibuprofen, or ice packs to reduce inflammation and relieve pain. Avoiding activities that may aggravate your symptoms will also help.

In most cases, shoulder disorders improve over time if treatment advice is followed. when to see your gP You should see your GP if your pain is the result of an injury, it's particularly bad, or there is no sign of improvement after a couple of weeks. Shoulder pain can be a long-term problem: up to half of people still have symptoms after 18 months. A correct diagnosis will ensure you receive the right treatment.

Understanding The Bible In my mature years, I’m finally beginning to understand the Bible! For those who haven’t heard, the State of Washington just passed two laws: • Same-sex Marriage • Legalised Marijuana The fact that same-sex marriage and marijuana were legalised on the same day makes perfect biblical sense because Leviticus 20:13

says: “If a man lies with another man they should be stoned.” I just hadn’t interpreted it correctly before.

New Mum In Town - Back To Work Right, so it is hot and we are still getting on the's October. Is this normal?! How awesome is this weather! Whilst my friends back home are chilling in 5 degree temperatures, I'm enjoying the sunshine and still wearing my summer clothes (no intention to cause jealousy at all, honest...). Jazmin is doing great and she is really enjoying nursery. She no longer waits to say bye to me sniff sniff! She also has a carpeta at nursery, which means that every day (at 11am), she and her new little friends all sit around a table together and do an activity (worksheet, stories, colouring, manualidades etc). The 'teacher' sits with the younger ones to help them hold a pencil and do the work properly of course, but I think it's really great. Jazmin loves colouring and I am sure she loves 'ficha time'. I definitely love bringing home any of her work. I am one proud Mama! Her Spanish vocab is really growing too, rivalling her English; how lucky is she...bilingual from day one! However, back to this month and it's time for Mami (me) to go back to work and start earning some euros (however little that may be in this current climate). Here we go... The time has come...the time for me to get back to work. A million thoughts pace my (somewhat fried) baby brain... 'It's Jazmin's first week at nursery. Will going back to work be too much for her?'...'Will Jazmin be OK without me?'....oh, stop it. Ever the fretting Mama, but just get over it! Jazmin will be fine. She is safe. She is loved....that is the mantra I repeat as I begin the car journey to day one (well, afternoon) back at the office (meaning, classroom at the language school where I have always loved to teach). Slightly dramatic you may say....but, fellow Mums will back me; right? I have reached school and I couldn't be more pleased with my 'timetable'. I have got three hours of back to back four-year-olds twice a week (don't want to over-exert myself of course!) which means no exams, no homework and no extra marking - yippee; thank you muchly! The bell sounds, and the first day tears await me. But I am now a pro with crying children so this will be no problem. I just need to stop checking that little J is ok...her Papa has got her, she is fine: relax!!!'s time to teach English! Well, well, well...there were no tears, no fears -- just a fun first afternoon back. The kids were great and responsive, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have surprised myself and I feel like a little piece of the old me has re-surfaced. My advice to new mums - when the time is right, and you get the right offer, take it - it will do you and your baby good! I have been mobile and time checking all after-

noon, is Miss J ok? It's half past six. Gosh, Jazmin must be desperately missing me. I must get to her has been three hours since I last saw her after all...I received a text which said that all was okey dokey (two hours ago!!). But, surely, I am needed...?? Seems I am not! Although Miss J came bounding up to me and gave me a full-on bear hug (and didn't let go), everything (not counting the left-over food or littered floor) was in order and right as rain. All I had to do was enjoy the perfect welcome Jazmin gave me. WOW, how amazing -- and even more amazingly, I felt like me again (only an improved version, thanks to a very special little lady). And, as it was still warm and light, I even enjoyed an evening stroll with my little family (poochies included). My first day back was over, and we all survived in spectacular fashion. As we sat in our local, we toasted the occasion with a glass of vino (rude not to) and I was able to reflect...I have the most gorgeous baby girl, a loving family, I live in a place where the sun is always shining (and the sangria flowing) and the beach is on my doorstep. I'm healthy and I have a job I enjoy... Seriously, I think I am the most fortunately, blessed New Mum Brit in the Costa del Sol :)

Antioxidants are disease-fighting compounds, which scientists believe help prevent and repair oxidation damage that happens during normal cell activity.

Travelling 46 kilometres to the east of Málaga we discover Torrox, which is reputed to have the Best Climate In Europe! There are two distinct areas of Torrox, Torrox Costa which boasts 3 kilometres of beach front with a beautiful Paseo Marítimo to stroll along and Torrox Pueblo, 4 kilometres up the hill, which like all the Pueblo´s Blanco´s of the Axarquía, has retained its Moorish heritage with steep winding streets and archways. Torrox Costa has a lighthouse (Faro) and next to it is a Roman Necropolis which is now protected by a look out point with a glass floor so that you can see the graves without disturbing them. Even if you didn´t realise there was anything of interest to see under the floor this mirador stretches out to the sea and is an interesting place to visit in its own right. The Paseo Marítimo has lots of bars and chiringuitos and is a great place to catch the rays even on a winters day. The Pueblo, sheltered as it is by both the Sierra Almijara and Sierra Tejeda mountains, is living proof of its claim of el Mejor Clima de Europa! You can often sit in the main square and partake of a cool libation while Malaga and Marbella are hidden by grey clouds and rain! Torrox is part of the Axarquía route of Sun and Wine and on the last Sunday before Christmas

it holds its Migas Fiesta. If you have never sampled Migas before then this is the time to take your first taste. It’s a traditional dish for harvest workers and is made from stale bread, olive oil, water and garlic and any left over meat available. During this festival the dish is cooked in large frying pans throughout the village and whilst waiting to eat you can listen to music and watch the locals dancing in the village square. The Mudejar style church of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación can be found in the centre of the village and as with most churches it is so huge that its difficult to see the bell tower without bending over backwards! Although if you stand in the main square opposite the town hall you can just catch a glimpse of the bell tower to your right! On the way out of the village down to the coast there is a large Ermita y Convento Nuestra Señora de las Nieves which was constructed in the XVIII century and was founded by the Friars of the Order of San Francisco. As well as being used for religion it was also a storeroom for fruit!

One of my biggest lessons in this lifetime is all about judging others and being judged. Much of this stems from my past life experience being beheaded in front of an audience after speaking something deemed by the authorities at the time as an untruth. However, I know that my fear of being judged largely comes from the fact that I once had a tendency to judge others. I now understand that what we experience in our outer world, we first experience in our inner world and that everything is a mirror. The universe set me up with a perfect opportunity to learn this judgment lesson by pairing me with Terry. Due to the 38-year age difference, we were met by judgment from the very beginning. People would give us funny looks as we dined together in restaurants, or as we held hands walking along the beachfront. People I told would sneer and say hurtful comments such as, “Are you only with him for his money?” or “He’s probably only with you for the sex.” I soon learned to reflect these comments and judgments away. After all, he and I knew the truth and any other thoughts were not ours, they belonged only to the people who said them. Those who said or wondered, “Are you only with him for his money?” were really the people who would do such a thing themselves. Any worries about what other people thought of me swiftly dispersed after I had spent some time with Terry. And so when I did my first speaking engagement I had shed a lot of the fear about what other people thought of me. I was able to get outside of “me” and “my worries” and instead focus my attention on the audience’s needs. Again, it all happened in Divine timing, as everything does. Now I’m aware I need to master the lesson of not judging those who judge. We all are here to learn our lessons. I’m convinced that we get to experience the very things that we judge, so be careful!

Profile Full Name: Renée Kathleen Zellweger Nickname: Zelly Birthday: 25 April, 1969 age: 44 Birthplace: Katy, Texas, USA Sign: Taurus Renee’s father was Swiss and her mother Norwegian. Her father (Emil Erich Zellweger) and her grandparents (Dorothy and Emil Zellweger) lived in Switzerland and left after World War II. They moved first to Australia and then to the US. Emil Erich met Renee's mother on a boat during the crossing. Renee was a gymnast and cheerleader at High School, then went to the University of Texas at Austin to major in English language; she gained a BA. At the beginning, she only took a drama class because she needed a fine arts credit to complete her degree, but the experience made her appreciate how much she loved acting. During this time, she supported herself by taking jobs as a waitress in Austin, Texas. She was voted 'Dream Date' of her class before she graduated from high school in 1987. Her first main part in a movie came with the 1994 horror story Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, alongside Matthew McConaughey.

With no dance or voice training, she learned how to perform for Chicago (2002) by watching co-star Catherine Zeta-Jones. She endured a gruelling training regime of vocal coaching and dance training for 10 months to rise to professional standards. Prior to the filming of Chicago (2002), Renee had only sung previously in public in the last scene of Empire Records (1995) and in the comical karaoke scene in Bridget Jones's Diary (2001). However, critics were amazed how good her voice was in the movie. In 2005, she married country singer Kenny Chesney on the resort island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Her wedding ceremony lasted 15 minutes, and the marriage was annulled seven months later. She gained 20lbs and learned an English accent for her role in Bridget Jones's Diary (2001). Renee is one of only nine actresses to have won the Academy Award, BAFTA Award, Critics' Choice Award, Golden Globe Award and SAG Award for the same performance (in Cold Mountain, 2003). In 2001, she was chosen by 'People Magazine' as one of the 50 most beautiful people in the world. And it's time for Renee Zellweger to stock up on doughnuts and cheese pizzas again... Bridget Jones is back. Just a day after Helen Fielding confirmed the title of the third installment of her book series, Mad About the Boy, she revealed that British production company Working Title have acquired the rights to the film for £3million. Which means Renee, 44, is going to have to put on 30lbs again.

It has a long proboscis with a small poison barb on the top, which looks like a small harpoon. Some collectors pick up cone snails and the snails react to that – they stab the person with their deadly proboscis. The cone snail’s poison (called apparatus) works on the nervous system.

One drop of venom from this snail is powerful enough to kill 20 people. The Marbled Cone Snail is also known as the Cigarette Snail and is one of the most poisonous animals on the planet. It has this nickname because allegedly, a human victim would only have enough time to smoke one cigarette if injected with this toxin. Then they would die. Roughly 30 humans to date have succumbed to the poison of the Marbled Cone Snail. There is currently no antivenom. The only treatment is to keep the person alive long enough for the venom to wear off. Typically, this snail doesn’t use its powerful toxin on humans. Instead, it saves it for unsuspecting fish, worms and molluscs. There are more than 500 different species of Marbled Cone Snails. Thank goodness the summer is over - no more swimming in the sea for me!

Rastro Old & New Country Market A new ‘Rastro Old & New Country Market’ has evolved as a result of a ‘pop-up shop’ idea which worked well last year at Camping Bar Restaurante La Vinuela, and now the demand to expand the idea is taking place each Wednesday from 10am to 3pm. The location of the market is adjacent to the Camping Bar/Restaurante -- known to some as the ‘Big Yellow Building’ -- in a great setting overlooking Lake Vinuela in the heart of the Axarquia. A core of experienced traders attends regularly with a further mix of vendors bringing a different selection of goods to spice things up. The Camping Bar/Restaurante provides a great 'menu del dia' especially for the market for 7€, which allows visiting the market to be more of a day event -- especially as the

market has a later start and finish time than others so it m a k e s sense to stay around for some lunch! The stalls themselves can be found down to the side of the Camping Bar/Restaurante on the campsite itself, which is an established and pretty area. Stall holders are in shady plots and it is easy to wander between them all. Disabled access is not a problem at this market and parking is excellent for countless cars. The intention of the ‘Rastro Old and New Country Market’ is for it to be more casual, with the later opening and closing times. As well as the local customers and folk who travel from further afield to visit the market, it lends itself well for social groups who can spend time browsing and buying, and enjoying lunch or a drink on the terrace overlooking the lake.


Every Wednesday 10am to 3pm

great selection of market stalls offering local produce, artisan, books, ladies & mens clothing, household goods, jewellery, art, gifts & much much more... Plenty on offer for everyone!! Fantastic bar and restaurant next door at Bar Camping wonderful views of Lake Vinuela Browse and enjoy the experience of being in “The heart of axarquia” Directions: Vinuela A356, between Km 31 & 32, look out for Campsite sign. For further information email: or Telephone: 650 380 954 Special Menu del Dia for Market Days 7€!!! “Wifi Available” Social Groups Welcome! Disabled Facilities

Rastro Old & New Country Market

The experienced traders live locally and offer well-priced goods including costume jewellery, gift ideas, clothing both new and retro and a great selection of preserves. Men will finally be looked after by Peter with a fantastic selection of jeans and shirts to fit all, combining high quality and affordable prices. There are also great items and ideas for household interiors, plus lots more and different each week! The market would like to encourage the promotion of local businesses. Kritzlynn currently attends on a regular basis, and she can give you all the information you need about her personal and tailor-made tours to Morocco which she is now organising for Christmas escapes...she is also thinking of offering belly dance classes if she has enough takers! The market has a resident local fruit and veg

man, who is a real character, and organisers are looking for more local produce such as plants, herbs, pottery and ceramics. Anyone out there who can help with these or other items, perhaps as a stall holder, please email: or contact 650380954. Also in atttendance at the market is the Axarquia Animal Rescue Charity, (who raised €200 on their first market day), and the Bikers arm of the British Legion, who are always good fun.

The new ‘Rastro Old and New Counry Market’ at Camping La Vinuela embraces the beauty of the surroundings, and provides locals and visitors with something that is a bit different... come along and spend some time there...’cos it’s worth it! Every Wednesday 10am to 3pm See main advert opposite

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of ARIES: March 21-April 20 November is the perfect time for Arians to harvest the fruits of past efforts, achieving success and happiness in the personal, professional and financial areas of your life. Move forward with your plans and don´t hold back! TAURUS: April 21-May 21 Taureans should be prudent with finances this month, being cautious about spending only what is necessary. November is a good month for single Taureans to invest in future romantic relationships, so make the most of invitations and opportunities. GEMINI: May 22-June 21 Luck smiles on Gemini and good fortune is your constant companion throughout this month. Share love and goodwill with some older relatives or close friends who would appreciate some shared time and thoughtfulness. CANCER: June 22-July 22 Useful and beneficial opportunities are presented to Cancerians during November as people open their hearts, share their secrets and dreams with you, and offer you a part of it. Consider whether you are experiencing negative side effects from medication you may be taking and let the doc know. LEO: July 23-August 23 In good spirit this month, and prepared to face the world, Leos just need to curb over-sensitivity. Be willing to listen to, and help, friends and colleagues in need but be careful not to fall under the influence of someone who wishes to manipulate you and your ideas. VIRGO: August 24-September 22 Your keen intuition is the key factor to a business opportunity this month, one that will help you escape the boredom of routine you´ve been feeling. To develop your sixth sense further, consider meditation exercises or walking with nature and sensing the natural energy and vibrations.

LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 Everything flows easily and smoothly for Librans during November, so capture and harness the momentum to put to positive use in, for example, earnings for now and the future. Family and close friends seem cold but may just be in awe, even overwhelmed, of all you are taking on. SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 You´re able to recover harmony felt lost in previous months and rediscover how to express what you feel with a strong, and unusual, power of persuasion, making you an exceptional force to be reckoned with. A relaxing massage in the region of the spine, neck, coccyx and joints would benefit. SAGITTARIUS: November 22 December 21 Injustices may be presented in your love life that will lead to fights. You need to reflect and engage with people who can really be trusted. A trip away from your normal environment would help you discern what´s really important. CAPRICORN: December 22 January 20 During November Capricorns must learn to combat anxiety, moderate the pace of life, and organise ideas and desires, otherwise your health will be negatively affected. Don´t let pride make you miss a lesson from someone whose experience and wisdom could be valuable. AQUARIUS: January 21-February 19 If experiencing some mental fatigue, Aquarians should slow down their pace of work and avoid caffeine and alcohol for a period. In this way you can turn impatience, anger and general bad moods into good energy that may be used positively. PISCES: February 20-March 20 Pisceans can look forward to a happy period of fulfillment in love and relationships. Everything you undertake will bring beauty and outstanding results into your life and those around you. Recreational activities taken together will further strengthen bonds. Enjoy!

In Denmark, it is customary to eat duck the evening before, Morten’s Evening. The story behind the evening is this: Shy and humble St. Martin, not wishing to be elected bishop, chose instead to hide in a goose pen. When the gaggling geese gave him away with their noise, Martin was forced to become bishop and used his new position to punish the noisy birds by marking November 11 as a day dedicated to the killing and eating of geese. And so in Medieval Europe – principally Germany and Denmark – geese were served with apples, currants and chestnuts. Today, however, as families have become smaller and geese rather expensive and extravagant for a party of four or less, a duck is generally served instead. To mark this special day Restaurant Sabina in Almuñecar are serving a special Mortens Duck dish served with red cabbage and boiled potatoes priced at just 9.50€ on these days.

) : a h a h s e k o J A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbour. Before she says a word, Bob says, "I'll give you £800 to drop that towel." After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob. After a few seconds, Bob hands her £800 and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, "Who was that?" "It was Bob the next door neighbour," she replies. "Great!" the husband says, "did he say anything about the £800 he owes me?" ---------------------------------------------------------------A priest offered a Nun a lift. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?" The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?" The priest apologised "Sorry sister but the flesh is weak." Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, "Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory." ---------------------------------------------------------------Man: "Give me three packets of condoms, please." Cashier: "Do you need a paper bag with that, sir?" Man: "Naaah.... She ain't that ugly.." ---------------------------------------------------------------A female CNN journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had been going to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem to pray, twice a day, every day, for a long, long time. To check it out, she went to the Wall, and there he was, walking slowly up to the holy site. She watched him pray, and after

about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, using a cane and moving very slowly, she approached him for an interview. "Pardon me Sir, I'm Rebecca Smith from CNN. What's your name? "Morris Feinberg," he replied. "Sir, how long have you been coming to the Wailing Wall to pray?" "For about 60 years." "60 years! That's amazing! What do you pray for?" "I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and the Muslims." "I pray for all the wars and all the hatred to stop." "I pray for all our children to grow up safely as responsible adults, and to love their fellow man." "And how do you feel Sir, after doing this for 60 years?" "It's like talking to a f****** brick wall."

By Beloved Northerner’s Section Bloke from Barnsley with piles asks chemist, "Nah then lad, does tha sell arse cream?" Chemist replies, "Aye, Magnum or Cornetto?" ---------------------------------------------------------------Police have just released details of a new drug craze that is being carried out in Yorkshire nightclubs. Apparently, Yorkshire club goers have started injecting Ecstasy just above their front teeth. Police say the dangerous practice is called "E by gum" ---------------------------------------------------------------A Yorkshireman takes his cat to the vet. Yorkshireman: "Ayup, lad, I need to talk to thee about me cat." Vet: "Is it a tom?" Yorkshireman: "Nay, I've browt it wi' us" ---------------------------------------------------------------A Yorkshireman's dog dies and as it was a favourite pet, he decides to have a gold statue made by a jeweller to remember the dog by. Yorkshireman: "Can tha mek us a gold statue of yon dog?" Jeweller: "Doyou want it 18 carat?" Yorkshireman: "No, yer daft bugger, I want it chewin' a bone!"

Jokes h a h a :) The madam opened the brothel door in Aberdeen and saw a rather dignified, well-dressed, good-looking man in his late forties or early fifties. "May I help you sir?" she asked. The man replied, "I want to see Suzy." "Sir, Suzy is one of our most expensive ladies. Perhaps you would prefer someone else,” said the madam. He replied, "No, I must see Suzy." Just then, Suzy appeared and announced to the man she charged £5000 a visit. Without hesitation, the man pulled out five thousand pounds and gave it to Suzy, and they went upstairs. After an hour, the man calmly left. The next night, the man appeared again, once more demanding to see Suzy. Suzy explained that no one had ever come back two nights in a row as she was too expensive. "There are no discounts. The price is still £5000." Again, the man pulled out the money, gave it to Suzy, and they went upstairs. After an hour, he left. The following night the man was there yet again. Everyone was astounded that he had come for a third consecutive night, but he paid Suzy and they went upstairs. After their session, Suzy said to the man, "No one has ever been with me three nights in a row. Where are you from?" The man replied, "Edinburgh." "Really," she said. "I have family in Edinburgh." "I know." the man said. "Your sister died, and I am her Lawyer. She asked me to give you your £15,000 inheritance." --------------------------------------------------------------"Have you ever seen a 20€ note all crumpled up?" asked the wife. "No," I said. She gave me a sexy little smile, reached into her cleavage and pulled out a crumpled 20€ note. "Have you ever seen a 50€ note all crumpled up?" she asked. "No," I said. She gave me another sexy little smile, reached

into her knickers and pulled out a crumpled 50€ note. "Now," she said, "have you ever seen 30,000€ all crumpled up?" "No," I said, intrigued. "Well, go and take a quick look in the garage." --------------------------------------------------------------There were nine blondes and a brunette hanging of a rope 100 stories high. They had decided that one of them had to get off. They argued and argued and finally the brunette said ''I'll go.'' The brunette made a touching speech and all the blondes clapped.

Saint Stevie The Scouse Section Just bought a Liverpool FC advent calendar. Bloody typical, all the windows are boarded up and someone’s nicked all the f****** chocolate --------------------------------------------------------------A young lad asks his mum where his new Liverpool top is. "I washed it and it's drying on the line." The young lad rushes to the window to see his beloved Liverpool top lying in the mud. "Mum, why is my Liverpool top in the mud?" His mum looks out of the window and shouts, "The thieving lads have nicked the pegs again!" --------------------------------------------------------------When Brendan Rodgers said he thought Liverpool could finish second I didn't realise he meant in every game. --------------------------------------------------------------Can somebody please notify Liverpool that, along with their lack of imagination, the correct grammar is 'A field', not 'An field'. Thanks --------------------------------------------------------------I bumped into a man crying uncontrollably outside a department store in Liverpool yesterday and all he could go on about was how he hates this time of year, dressing up in a ridiculous red outfit and embarrassing himself in front of thousands of people. I said, "Look, Mr. Gerrard, you chose to play for Liverpool."
