I’d like to start this month’s editorial by letting anyone with a private pension, or a SIPPs investment, in on a little secret. If you have either then it’s highly likely that you currently feel very frustrated at the fact that you’re sitting on stagnant money. However, a recent change in UK law means that you can now release that money (and earn a great income off it at the same time) by investing in commercial property, governed by UK law. And here at The Sentinella we’ve discovered the perfect solution. By investing in Caribbean property (which is governed by UK law) you can not only release your previously ‘trapped’ money, but you’ll also increase your pension fund income by 50 per cent…. guaranteed. And it gets better because you’ll also turn 50,000GBP into 130,000GBP within just 4-5 years. I myself have invested into this property and within 18 months I’ve already seen a huge jump in capital appreciation. Now my mission is to help as many people as possible to do the same. After all, what’s the point of having money sitting there going stale, not earning you any income…? If you’d like to meet with an investment expert to discuss this further, or if you’d like to attend a seminar in your area, please email: or call me on 610 976 284.

And now for something a little more lighthearted! I’ve just returned from a four-day mini break to the beautiful island of Mallorca. My boyfriend spotted a last minute bargain on for a three night stay in a four star hotel, in a town called Cala Rajada, nestled on the north eastern coast of of the island. So we bagged it!

From The Ed (cont)

Little did we know at the time of booking that in order to get by in this particular corner of the island you had to speak fluent German! In hindsight we should have hazarded as guess as we boarded the ‘Air Berlin’ plane. It didn’t bother me that I was the only English person holidaying in that town, and my boyfriend the only Spaniard, but some of the restaurants displayed their menus in the German lingo only, and I have to admit that was pretty irritating. Our hotel was utterly terrible and if I’d been a hotel inspector I’d have taken away at least two of their stars without thinking twice. On our first afternoon, after a lazy few hours lying on the beach, we went back to the hotel for a shower. But to our dismay there was no hot water. The water was completely freezing to the point where had I stood under it for more than five minutes I’d have likely caught a cold. My boyfriend called reception, who told us that a lot of other guests were having showers at that time so we’d have to either wait half an hour, or use the swimming pool shower. At that moment I wondered if we were really in the 21st century… On a positive note the island itself was magical. We hired a car out for one day and had great fun exploring the villages and towns, including the picturesque mountain village of Valdemossa, which I recommend. Other mustsees are the caves of Drach and the safari park, where the monkeys, zebras and other animals run wild. Ooops my space is out... Tschuss!

Strange News The Love Mattress Clever mattress-makers have invented a specially designed bed to help randy lovers. The £1,200 ‘love mattress’ includes special straps and handles for couples to hang on to when passions are rising high. Further down the bed, there’s a carefully designed trench where men can place their knees for extra traction and grip. The bed is being launched by Italian makers Sogniflex, whose boss Paolo Tonelli said: "Studies show that about 70 per cent of men and women say they’re unsatisfied with their love-making or they have some kind of performance problem. "I wanted to invent something that could really help them, because most beds are designed for sleeping, not for making love." Little Miss Magnetic Hands A Serbian schoolgirl has amazed medics with her magnetic hands. Ten-year-old Jelena Momcilov can pick up cutlery, coins and even metal furniture by just touching them. She first discovered her powers five years ago. Now experts at nearby Nis University have urged scientists to investigate. Look At Her Melons! Fruity farmer, Rowie Meers, uses bras to grow the melons on her farm. Meers, 45, asked customers at Purton House Organics to donate their unwanted underwear to support the melons after discovering they were hanging too low to flourish. She now uses over 40 bras to hoist the fruit from the ceilings of her farm in Swindon, Wilts, and claims the bigger the bust the better.

Mice Balls!!

This is a real memo sent out by a computer company to its employees. It went to all field engineers about a computer peripheral problem. The engineers literally rolled on the floor as they read; especially the last couple of sentences. Re: Replacement of Mouse Balls.

Foreign balls can be replaced using the pop off method. Domestic balls are replaced by using the twist off method. Mouse balls are not usually static sensitive. However, excessive handling can result in sudden discharge.

If a mouse fails to operate or should it perform erratically, it may need a ball replacement.

Upon completion of ball replacement, the mouse may be used immediately.

Mouse balls are now available as FRU (Field Replacement Units). Because of the delicate nature of this procedure, replacement of mouse balls should only be attempted by properly trained personnel.

It is recommended that each person have a pair of spare balls for maintaining optimum customer satisfaction.

Before proceeding, determine the type of mouse balls by examining the underside of the mouse. Domestic balls will be larger and harder than foreign balls. Ball removal procedures differ depending upon the manufacturer of the mouse.

Any customer missing his balls should contact the local personnel in charge of removing and replacing these necessary items. Please keep in mind that a customer without properly working balls is an unhappy customer.

Kulula Airlines What a pity Kulula doesn´t fly internationally!

in the industry. Unfortunately, none of them are on this flight!"

Kulula is an Airline situated in Johannesburg. Kulula airline attendants make an effort to make the in-flight "safety lecture" and announcements a bit more entertaining. Here are some real examples that have been heard or reported:

Heard on a Kulula flight. "Ladies and gentlemen, if you wish to smoke, the smoking section on this airplane is on the wing.. If you can light 'em, you can smoke 'em."

On landing, the stewardess said, "Please be sure to take all of your belongings.. If you're going to leave anything, please make sure it's something we'd like to have." "In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child travelling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are travelling with more than one small child, pick your favourite." And from the pilot during his welcome message: "Kulula Airlines is pleased to announce that we have some of the best flight attendants

A plane took off and after it reached a comfortable cruising altitude, the captain said over the intercom, "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome to Flight Number 293, non-stop from Durban to Cape Town. The weather ahead is good and, therefore, we should have a smooth and uneventful flight.. Now sit back and relax... OH, MY GOODNESS!" Silence followed, and after a few minutes, the captain came back on the intercom and said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so sorry if I scared you earlier. While I was talking to you, the flight attendant accidentally spilled a cup of hot coffee in my lap. You should see the front of my pants!" A passenger then yelled, "That's nothing. You should see the back of mine!

De Cotta Co ownership of Spanish property by Reyes Gomez Llorente - Lawyer with De Cotta McKenna y Santafé Illustrative case studies: A) “A joint owner, Mr. Biscuit, sells his 50% share of a property to Mr. Grabalot for 150,000€ without notifying his wife, who is a joint owner of the property. Two months later Mrs. Biscuit finds out that Mr.Biscuit, who is now living in the Seychelles with Miss Charm, sold half of the property she lives in to Mr. Grabalot and his title is now registered with the property registry. Mrs. Biscuit can challenge the transaction BUT she would have to pay the 150,000€ plus the costs of the transaction at the same time as she challenges the sale. There would then be an argument as to whether she had exercised this right within the time period available in the law, nine days from the time of inscription or from the date of knowledge!” B) “Mr. Biscuit dies leaving his 50% of the jointly owned matrimonial home to Miss Charm and his two children from his first marriage; crumbs!” Background: Many people who have purchased property in Spain over the last 20 years do not fully understand the importance of the concept of co-ownership and the legal rights and obligations that go with it. The way in which property is owned in Spain is relevant when a couple divorce or when a spouse dies and even more important when a partnership or co-habitation breaks down. The law on co-ownership is regulated by Article 392 of the Civil Code. A co or joint owner cannot be obliged to be permanently fixed with their co-ownership. This means that each coowner has the right to request the liquidation or dissolution of their co ownership. There are two legal rights; the right of first refusal and the right of retraction. Many people assume they will have the right of first refusal if the other owner or owners want to sell or transfer their share of a property. However in Spain this right (tanteo) does not apply in most cases of co-ownership, as the property must be registered as a 'finca enfiteútica,' which is a rare form of ownership arising from staged or monetary payments - Articles 1.637 Civil Code. The right of retraction is, however, a legal right

to all co owners and if a joint owner sells their share to a third party the transaction can be challenged. This means that the sale or transfer must be resolved and the co owner must be allowed to acquire the asset paying the same price and under the same terms and conditions. Articles 1.518 and 1.525 state that the costs and legitimate expenses of the sale and costs of use has to be paid at the moment the right of retraction is exercised. In practical terms the issues of occupation and the right of retraction means that very few purchases of part of a property take place without the knowledge and consent of the other coowners. However, this does serve to warn co owners how important it is to know their legal rights, particularly on the breakdown of a relationship. Where there is a mortgage over jointly owned property, it is even more important to get good advice. In most cases a negotiation with the bank and between the parties can resolve the issues and as with many legal problems a good and practical explanation of how the law applies in your particular case will help.

Random Jokes 'SPAGHETTI' For several years, a man had been having an affair with an Italian woman. One night, she confided to him that she was pregnant. Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he paid her a large sum of money if she would go back to Italy secretly to have the child. Also, if she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would provide child support until the child turned 18. She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was born. To keep it discreet, he told her to simply send him a post card, and write 'Spaghetti' on the back when the child was born. He would then arrange for the Child Support Payments to begin. One day, about 8 months later, he came home to his confused wife. 'Honey,' she said, 'You received a very strange post card today. ' 'Oh, just give it to me and I'll explain it later,' he said. The wife obeyed and watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and fainted. On the card was written: Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti,

The Real Man The top thirteen things that make you feel like a real man… Opening jars – She’s struggling. You take if from her hands, open it effortlessly and pretend she loosened it for you. She didn’t. Jars are men’s work. Calling someone ‘son’ – Especially policemen, but even saying it to kids makes you the man. sharpening a pencil with a stanley Blade – Blunt is it? Hand it here love. NO I don’t need a sharpener, you think I can’t whittle. going to the tip – A manly act which involves driving, lifting and – as you thrillingly drop your rubbish into another huge pile of rubbish – noisy destruction. Drinking up – Specifically rising from the table,

slinging your coat on and downing two thirds of a pint in one fluid movement. Then nodding towards the door saying, ‘Lets go’ and striding out while everyone else struggles to keep up with you. having a scar – ideally it’ll be a facial knife wound, but even an iron burn on the wrist is good. “Oooh, did it hurt?” “Nah” Carving the roast – and saying “are you a leg man or a breast man” to the blokes and “do you want stuffing” to the women. Congratulations, you are now your dad. arriving in the pub late and everyone cheers you – doesn’t mean you’re popular, it just means your mates are pissed. However, the rest of the pub doesn’t know that. Parallel parking – bosh, straight in first time! winking – turns women to putty. Doesn’t it?

Clinica Europa Dental bleaching (also known as tooth whitening) is a common procedure in general dentistry, especially in cosmetic dentistry. As a person ages the adult teeth become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth, as the enamel becomes more porous. Teeth can also become stained by bacterial pigments, foodstuffs and tobacco. Certain antibiotics can also cause teeth stains or reduce the brilliance of the enamel. There are two main types of bleaching; one involves using a high concentration gel and another involves use of a low concentration gel. The low concentration gels can be purchased over the counter. They are for home use and are applied to thin plastic trays which overlay the teeth for short periods. Results are limited. High concentration gels are for professional use only, as they can be dangerous. Power or light accelerated bleaching, coloqually referred to as laser bleaching, uses light energy to accelerate the process. The most common sources

are halogen, LED or plasma. They are used in 15 minute bursts, once a protective light cured barrier is applied to the gums. A typical course of treatment can produce dramatic results, some stains do not respond and a prior professional clean is essential. There are various salons, etc, on the Costa offering these treatments with dubious qualifications. In the UK only professionals are allowed to use these treatments. So consult with an experienced dental surgeon at Clinica Europa. See advert opposite

Casa Maria Three friends take over their local bar - and what a success it has been for Carol, John and Linda. Carol and John, from Casa Maria, have been married for 27 years and have two children, Steph and Wesz. They first had a holiday in Torrox back in 2003 and they enjoyed it so much that they returned in 2004 and found that it was still as great as the first time. They made their decision to move here in 2005. Throughout the last four years Carol worked in various bars and John worked in Casa Maria. When Casa Maria was placed up for sale, John and I, along with our good friend Linda, thought 'why not take the plunge, this is our opportunity'. Since taking over the bar we thoroughly enjoy the banter with the locals and attempting to have conversations with the Spanish farmers. We absolutely love the Jam nights.

Linda came here in 2005 from Nottingham and initially worked in various bars in Torrox Park. She met Carol and John first as customers, then Carol and Linda became work colleagues and good friends. “I've been working here throughout the summer for the past two years," said Linda. "We discussed taking over the bar at the end of last year and we were all very excited. Fortunately it became a reality and in April this year the plan became reality. We're improving our Spanish and having lots of fun and we're very pleased to have had the chance to do this. It is a great bar, very rustic with a ‘real Spanish’ feel to it and we're looking forward to the future. A big thank you to everyone who has wished us well.” Pop along to Casa Maria and see for yourself what a fun place it is. See advert below

Roast On The Coast This month we headed down to the coast for a roast.....! We chose The Ribhouse in Torrox Costa, with its bright and airy enclosed terrace, which looks and feels a bit like a conservatory. If you want a particular meat from the four options, it's a must to call in advance as the place is very popular. There are three courses on offer, starting with their infamous homemade soup. Kirsty always makes super soups and the cream of leek was no exception. Thomas brought it out in a large tureen and ladle so we could help ourselves. There was enough for three bowls each! I'd ordered lamb and pork for mains and I couldn't wait to try it, as my taste buds had been tittilated by the soup. Each meat comes with it’s own gravy boat and appropriate sauce, on this occasion mint and apple. There was

We specialise in Ribs, Wings, Steaks and Chicken

Credit Cards Taken

also a brimming dish of four veggies, which we were informed could be topped up if required, plus a plate of ‘Yorkshires’ and a plate of ‘Roasties’ - great! The meats were juicy, succulent and I think slow roasted, as they were sooo sooo tender. Among the five or so desserts on offer, there were pancakes and peaches, raspberry sponge cake and lemon sponge with custard. We chose the latter two. I certainly didn’t fancy a pudding because of the large amount of food I'd just consumed but I couldn’t resist a lemon sponge. I’m glad I did....sublime. There was one thing I was very disappointed with......usually when I go for a roast dinner, I finish the wife’s leftovers, but the greedy cow ate all her’s!!! That just proves how good Sunday Lunch at The Ribhouse is! See advert below

Redwell Infrared Heating Healthy and economical heating with a nice design! Redwell has been located in Torrox for the last five years, as the main distributor of the Redwell® Infrared Heating Systems for Spain. During this period the team has established the Redwell® products on the Spanish market with distributors in Madrid, Mallorca and the Costa Blanca. Along with single rooms, apartments and houses, the team also installs the heating systems into villas. The excellent quality of the products, the growing product range and our co-operation with qualified electricians assure us the satisfaction and the confidence of our clients. The Redwell® heaters are economical to run and create a healthy room climate. In comparison to conventional heaters,

infrared waves don’t heat the air, but they do heat the walls and furniture. People are also able to absorb the heating waves so they feel cosy. Walls and furniture store the heat much longer than air, then releases it back into the living space. This way the walls remain dry and mould has no chance to spread. Another advantage is that the air does not circulate, therefore no dust is created. Redwell® products are distributed in more than 35 countries and they have won several prizes in international trade fairs. Redwell® Infrared Heating panels are available in different sizes, in three colours, and also in exclusive designs such as pictures, mirrors, globes, columns, blackboards, glass elements and others. The panels are beautifully made and flexible in application. They can heat whole houses or just rooms. At the same time they enhance your house by providing works of art for your walls. Contact us or visit the exhibition in our shop! See main advert below.

Heat up your home in a healthy and economical way! Infrared Design Heating System: Pictures, Mirrors, Glass, Blackboards, Columns etc. -Very economical to run and maintenance free -Partial storage heater keeps running times lower -No air circulation, so dust is not dispersed -Simple installation -Prevents dampness -Electrosmog free

Marriage Mistakes In life and love, you may think you're supposed to always focus on the positive instead of the negative. However, unless you become aware of your own hurtful attitudes or actions, so that you can correct them, your chances of staying in love 'til death do you part are close to zero. To have your marriage last a lifetime, avoid these common mistakes: 1. talking "at" instead of "with" your mate. Let his or her body language be your guide. When you're talking "at" your partner, he or she will tense up. When you're talking "with" your spouse, he or she will relax.

4. getting defensive instead of saying, "i'm sorry." When you mess up, the sooner you sincerely say, "I'm sorry," the sooner your mate can stop resenting you. 5. always saying, "i'm sorry," yet never changing. An apology buys you another chance. However, if you keep making the same mistake, apologies not only seem empty, but annoying as well. 6. Being repeatedly late. Frequently keeping your partner waiting is not only inconsiderate, it's arrogant.

2. tuning out instead of tuning in, to what your mate is saying. When you mind begins to wander, stop and remember that what your partner is saying is important to him or her.

7. Playing the victim. This behaviour not only accuses your spouse of hurting you, but adds insult to injury by implying that he or she is doing it intentionally, when that may not be the case.

3. Forgetting to thank your mate. Not thanking your spouse for being considerate, thoughtful or kind makes him or her feel unappreciated and foolish for caring about you.

8. Jumping to conclusions. Presuming that you know what your partner feels - and why without first getting all the facts is only going to push him or her away.

All Change At Tiffany´s It's All Change at Tiffany’s (message to our customers) It’s 18 months since we took over Tiffany’s bar, in Puente Don Manuel, and we now feel that the time is right to put our own stamp on the business by changing its name. From October the bar will be known as ‘Fonzie’s, which all our regular customers will know is the familiar name given to Alfonso. To celebrate, there'll be a big re-naming party on Friday 15th October, with a disco, prizes and an outdoor barbeque. On the night we'll be introducing a Fonzie’s Loyalty Card, which is free of charge to all our loyal clientele and will be available to collect from the bar. The card will entitle the bearer to 25 per cent discount on all drinks (including branded spirits) between 5pm and 7pm every day and 10 per cent discount on food at anytime. During the winter months other promotions for card holders will be frequently announced on our Fonzie’s notice board and in The Sentinella magazine. The card is available to anyone who resides in the area and it's our way of thanking our current customers, whom we have had the pleasure to get to know well. So please show your support by attending the party. There'll be a prize for the best dressed Fonz look alike and 50’s fancy dress is optional (big skirts and petticoats, etc)...Well, that’s the men sorted then!

Last year Alfonso’s 'tunnel of horror' was such a success that he'll re-create it this year. Trevor and Eve will provide the fabulous disco (as always) and there'll be prizes for the best dressed adult and child. There'll also be hotdogs, burgers and spooky happenings. Visit the toilet if you dare! Quiz Night Every Thursday 8.30pm There's now a new quizmaster at Fonzie’s. Paul has been a phenomenal success in the past few weeks and he delivers a lively quiz, with questions for all ages and the ever popular picture and music rounds. Customer feedback has been extremely positive to this recent change.

us… ! top l that c O l the and a h t r on be is m t-o Th t’s Oc i as The octopus is an invertebrate animal (it has no backbone) and it belongs to the phylum group Mollusca. Its closest relatives are the various species of squid and cuttlefish. Snails and slugs are distant relatives of the octopus.

‘fortress’ out of rocks on the sea bed. These can often be identified by piles of discarded shells lying in the entrance. The octopus hunts at dusk. Crabs, crayfish and bivalve molluscs are preferred, although it will eat almost anything it can catch. The prey is paralysed by a nerve poison which is the octopuses secretes and the octopus is able to grasp its prey using its powerful tentacles with their two rows of suckers. If the victim is a shelled mollusc. The octopus uses its small teeth to punch a hole in the shell before sucking out the fleshy contents.

The common octopus has a relative called the giant octopus, whose tentacle span is up to seven metres! These huge creatures live in deep water along the northern Pacific coasts from the Sea of Japan east to Alaska and south to California.

If you ever see two octopuses apparently holding hands, it probably means that they are mating. The male pumps spermatophores down a specially modified tentacle called the hectocotylus to fertlise the female’s eggs.

The octopus lives in a hole or rock crevice in shallow water. Sometimes it digs a nest in gravel, or uses tentacles to construct a

The world’s most famous octopus is called Paul. He lives in Berlin and has the remarkable ability to predict the results of football matches.

Kid Humour They say what they see.... Jack (age 3) …was watching his Mum breastfeeding his new baby sister. After a while he asked: 'Mum why have you got two? Is one for hot and one for cold milk?' Melanie (age 5) …asked her Granny how old she was. Granny replied she was so old she didn't remember any more. Melanie said, 'If you don't remember you must look in the back of your panties. Mine say five to six.' Steven (age 3) …hugged and kissed his Mum good night and said: 'I love you so much that when you die I'm going to bury you outside my bedroom window.' Brittany (age 4) …had an ear ache and wanted a pain killer. She tried in vain to take the lid off the bottle. Seeing her frustration, her Mum explained it was a child-proof cap and she'd have to open it for her. Eyes wide with wonder, the little girl asked: 'How does it know it's me?' Susan (age 4) …was drinking juice when she got the hiccups. 'Please don't give me this juice again,' she said. 'It makes my teeth cough.' Clinton (age 5) …was in his bedroom looking worried. When his Mum asked what was troubling him, he replied: 'I don't know what'll happen with this bed when I get married. How will my wife fit in it?' Marc (age 4) …was engrossed in a young couple that were hugging and kissing in a restau-

rant. Without taking his eyes off them, he asked his Dad: 'Why is he whispering in her mouth?' Tammy (age 4)… was with her mother when they met an elderly, rather wrinkled woman her Mum knew. Tammy looked at her for a while and then asked: 'Why doesn't your skin fit your face?' James (age 4) …was listening to a Bible story. His Dad read: 'The man named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of the city, but his wife looked back and was turned to salt.' Concerned, James asked: 'What happened to the flea?' Them there’s the Sermon I think this Mum will never forget. 'Dear Lord,' the minister began, with arms extended toward heaven and a rapturous look on his upturned face. 'Without you, we are but dust...' He would have continued but at that moment a very obedient daughter who was listening leaned over to and asked quite audibly in her shrill little four-year-old girl voice: 'Mum, what is butt dust?'

Film iew Kid ReTvhe Karate We all remember this one from the 80’s right? The year 1984 to be exact. Well one things for sure, the remake won’t erase your fond memories of the original! The new version of "The Karate Kid" manages to be longer (and more expensive) than the original, while having less impact. Featuring Jaden Smith as the main character and Jackie Chan as his unlikely mentor, the reboot will certainly appeal to younger audiences. But there's no doubt that much of the film’s original charm has been lost. The primary difference is that the central char-

acter is transplanted by his widowed mother (Taraji P. Henson) not to sunny California, but to China. This lends plenty of opportunities for more dramatic culture clashing and highly exotic locations. The plot remains largely the same. Almost immediately upon settling into his new home, 12-year-old Dre Parker (Smith) finds himself beset by class bullies, especially the vicious youngster Cheng. During the course of getting beaten up in regular fashion, Dre finds his modest karate skills are no match for his tormentors' kung fu proficiency. But, much to his astonishment, one particularly brutal attack is interrupted by Mr. Han (Chan), his building's middle-aged maintenance man. And so the unlikely friendship begins, with Mr. Han mentoring Dre in kung fu in preparation for a tournament in which the youngster will have the opportunity to face his enemy under more equal circumstances.

Handy Andy’s Tips causes your exhaust to come loose, try reversing over them. It should tighten everything up.

Some ‘Top Tips’ from our man in the know!

Don´t throw away old string vests. Nailed to the walls outside they make an excellent trellis for climbing plants.

For next year save a Euro when using the changing rooms at the Aqua Park in Torre del Mar. Lockers numbered 113, 655 and 670 can be locked fully by turning the key without having to deposit a coin beforehand.

Lady drivers. Draw a little diagram on a Post-it showing the position of the hand brake and gearstick, and stick it to your dashboard. This will save you having to look for them when the lights go green.

Americans. Wipe out the Afghan insurgency by simply joining their side. With your ‘friendly fire’ tactics, the war should be over in days.

Party hostesses. Cactus plants make excellent buffet sausage dispensers if you´ve run out of grapefruits and cocktail sticks.

Convince your nan that she´s going senile by moving the bookmark in her Barbara Cartland novel ten pages forward while she´s not looking.

Keep an empty bottle of milk in your fridge in case someone wants black coffee or even maybe black tea.

If driving your car quickly over speed bumps

Young men. Stop being mistaken for girls by not having hair highlights and ear rings... Eee i don´t know!

Sally Harrison from Axarquia Properties leads us through the towns of the Axarquia, starting this month with Alcaucin. First in our A to Z of Axarquía villages is Alcaucín, situated on the western slopes of La Maroma at the entrance to the Natural Park of the Sierras de Tejeda, close to the spectacular Zafarraya gap, where you can step out of Malaga and into the Granada province! The approximate translation of Al Cautín, now Alcaucin, is 'the Arches' possibly named because of the aqueduct! At an altitude of 510 metres the village is approached either by driving up from Puente Don Manuel, across the valley through Venta Baja, or down from Zafarraya through Espino, where the views are absolutely stunning. Lower green mountains covered in pine trees, almond groves, vineyards and orchards, gradually rise up towards the rugged Boquete de Zafarraya, which is often shrouded in cloud and the Colmenar ridge. The village itself is typical of the area with narrow winding streets, whitewashed houses and interior courtyards brimming with beautifully

Property Of The Month AS2384 Viñuela 229,000 € Fantastic price for this 105m2 5 year old 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa with swimming pool and spectacular views across lake Viñuela to Mount Maroma.

coloured flowers. On entering the village one of the first points of interest is the fountain with five jets of fresh mountain water inviting you to stoop down and drink. Village life centres around the pretty town square now renamed the Plaza de la Constitución with its 18th Century Parish Church of Nuestra Señora del Rosario and the Town Hall. The earthquake on Christmas day, 1884, badly affected this village with loss of life as well as the destruction of property, roads and trails and the alteration of subterranean streams. And if that wasn´t enough heavy snowfall that year prevented much needed assistance to the villagers. There are several bars and restaurants which serve delicious local cuisine. The eight areas that make up this municipality are Puente Don Manuel, Los Morales, Los Cortijillos, Las Monjas, Venta Baja, Venta Alta, El Pilarejo and El Espino. When you have finished your tour of the village you can walk back down the Paseo de las Barriadas and take your pick of any one of the decoratively tiled benches, which bear the names of these areas, to rest for a while. If strolling through the village hasn´t given you enough exercise, then why not challenge yourself to reach the highest point of Axarquía by climbing to the top of La Maroma? Don´t forget your camera!

When In Wales An English ventriloquist visiting Wales walks into a small village and sees a local sitting on his veranda patting his dog. He figures he'll have a little fun, so he says to the Taff, 'Gooday, mind if I talk to your dog?' 'The dog doesn't talk, you stupid English bastard.' the villager replies. The ventriloquist carries on regardless 'Hello dog, how's it going mate?' 'Yeah, doin' all right.' the dog says. The Taff has a look of extreme shock. Ventriloquist says 'Is this villager your owner?' (pointing at the Villager). 'Yep'. 'How does he treat you?' 'Yeah, real good. He walks me twice a day, feeds me great food and takes me to the lake once a week to play.' The Taff now has a look of utter disbelief The Ventriloquist says 'Mind if I talk to your horse?' 'Uh, the horse doesn't talk either...I think.' says the villager.

'Hey horse, how's it going?' 'Cool' replies the horse. Taff is absolutely dumbfounded. The Ventriloquist continues 'Is this your owner?' (Pointing at the villager). 'Yep'. ‘How does he treat you?’ 'Pretty good, thanks for asking. He rides me regularly, brushes me down often and keeps me in the shed to protect me from the elements.' The Taff now is beside himself with a total look of amazement. The Ventriloquist then points to the villager’s sheep 'Mind if I talk to your sheep?'. Taffy, in a total panic shouts, 'THE SHEEP'S A LIAR……'

Pumpkin Facts Pumpkins are fruits, a type of squash that includes cucumbers, squashes and melons.

In early colonial times, pumpkins were used as an ingredient for the crust of pies, not the filling.

Pumpkins are native to North America and have been domestically grown there for five thousand years.

Pumpkins were once recommended for removing freckles and curing snake bites.

in 1584, after French explorer Jacques Cartier explored the saint Lawrence region of North america, he reported finding "gros melons" (large melons). the name was translated into English as "pompions," which has since evolved into the modern "pumpkin." Pumpkins are low in calories, fat, and sodium and high in fibre. They are good sources of Vitamin A, Vitamin B, potassium, protein, and iron. the largest pumpkin ever grown was over 1100 by a man in Ohio, in 2000.

Pumpkins range in size from less than a pound to over 1,000 pounds. Pumpkins are 90 per cent water. Eighty percent of the pumpkin supply in the United States is available in October. Colonists sliced off pumpkin tips; removed seeds and filled the insides with milk, spices and honey. this was baked in hot ashes and is the origin of pumpkin pie. Native Americans flattened strips of pumpkins, dried them and made mats.

Pumpkins require a long hot growing season and loads of humus, manure and water. the largest pumpkin pie ever made was over five feet in diameter and weighed over 350 pounds. it used 80 pounds of cooked pumpkin, 36 pounds of sugar, 12 dozen eggs and took six hours to bake. Pumpkins are members of the vine crops family called cucurbits. They are easy to grow! Pumpkins originated in Central america.

Halloween Throughout The World ireland In Ireland, which is considered to be where Halloween started, the day is celebrated much like it is in the United States. In rural areas, bonfires are lit as they were centuries ago, and all over the country children dress up in costumes and spend the evening "trick-ortreating”. After trick-or-treating, most people attend parties with neighbours and friends. At the parties, many games are played, including a card game where cards are laid face down on a table with candy or coins underneath them. When a child chooses a card, he receives whatever prize is found below it. A traditional food eaten on Halloween in Ireland is barnbrack, a kind of fruitcake. A muslinwrapped treat is baked inside the cake that, it is said, can foretell the eater's future. If a ring is found, it means that the person will soon be wed; a piece of straw means that a prosperous year is on its way.

Halloween Throughtout The World (Continued) China In China, the Halloween festival is known as Teng Chieh. Food and water are placed in front of photographs of family members who have departed while bonfires and lanterns are lit in order to light the paths of the spirits as they travel the earth on Halloween night. Worshippers in Buddhist temples fashion "boats of the law" from paper, which are burned in the evening hours. The purpose of this custom is twofold: as a remembrance of the dead and in order to free the spirits of the "pretas" in order for them to ascend to heaven. "Pretas" are the spirits of those who died as a result of an accident or drowning and whose bodies were consequently never buried. The presence of "pretas" among the living is thought by the Chinese to be dangerous. Czechoslovakia In Czechoslovakia, chairs are placed by the fireside on Halloween night. There is one chair for each living family member and one for each

family member's spirit. germany In Germany people put away their knives on Halloween night. The reason for this is because they do not want to risk harm to (or from) the returning spirits. korea In Korea, the festival similar to Halloween is known as "Chusok." It is at this time that families thank their ancestors for the fruits of their labour. The family pays respect to these ancestors by visiting their tombs and making offerings of rice and fruits. The "Chusok" festival takes place in the month of August. Mexico, Latin america and spain Among Spanish-speaking nations, particularly Mexico, Latin America, and Spain, Halloween is known as "El Dia de los Muertos." the days of the dead, a three-day celebration that begins on the evening of October 31 and culminates on November 2.

Axarquia Art

Divas Boutique & Emporium

When Heather Harman moved to Andalucia six years ago her plan was for a gradual 'retirement.' Heather was an award winning residential course art tutor in all mediums for over 20 years.

It seems like only five minutes ago that Divas Boutique, moved premises. But on 30th September it'll be one whole year!

She planned to concentrate solely on her own work as a portrait painter (, news of her expertise and teaching accolades resulted in her agreeing to start a local art class. Now she runs three art groups in the Axarquia area (see advert on page 97). She has also been elected to the membership board of three of the most prestigious pastel societies including Art du Pastel France, ASPAS (Spain) and the Pastel Society of America. plus The Pastel Guild of Europe! So she is now actively looking for exhibiting venues, for her developing students and for the 2013 biennial exhibition for the Spanish Pastel Society and the Pastel Guild of Europe. Watch this space - it could mean that the Axarquia is about to become a major venue in the promotion of the art world's oldest popular mediums. If there are any agents/galleries out there capable of big shows..speak up!

The Divas, Dawn Smith and Karen Taylor, have had a busy and exciting time taking over the whole premises next door to Morenos Bar. Divas Boutique is now an Emporium of UK branded designer clothing (in large sizes too), lingerie, shoes, fashion and hand-crafted jewellery, hand bags and accessories, gents clothing, shoes and furniture. This is also the main office for Spanish Management – House Sales, Rentals and Maintenance. Spanish Management also arrange Investments and Insurance through The Clear Advice Group, plus property investments in the Caribbean which yield an annual income. Musica can be found in the Emporium, selling guitars, keyboards and other musical peripherals, including guitar lessons. There's space available within Divas Boutique and Emporium for other entrepreneurs too. To celebrate their first anniversary Divas are holding a celebration on Fri 8th October starting at 11am. They'd like to invite you all to come along to help them celebrate with drinks, nibbles, raffles and special discounts on new items. See advert opposite

Mind, Body & Spirit Following last month’s article on the effect drugs have on long-term health, this month I’d like to address a related issue, which is absolutely central to the holistic approach to health and healing: responsibility. There's an old joke which goes: "How many healers does it take to change a light-bulb?" Answer: "Just one, but the light-bulb must really want to change!" I often meet people who, having exhausted conventional medical treatments, turn to holistic therapy in the hope of finding a cure for some long standing or serious problem. Yet they do so from exactly the same perspective of simply wanting someone or something to eliminate the symptoms without understanding that the root causes lie much deeper and may involve profound changes in many areas of their life in order to bring about a real and lasting cure. The attitude is basically one of “cure me”, as if the disease was a random accident bearing no relationship to themselves or how they are living, or the totality of their life to date. Often insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over again, yet expecting a different result! Attempting to eliminate a certain condition, or set of symptoms, without changing the habitual behaviours and attitudes which are causing them is, of course, futile. If you keep doing what you have always done, you will keep getting what you have always got. If we take responsibility for our own life, health and happiness and accept that if something “goes wrong,” the reasons are usually found within ourselves, we can start to walk the crucial and defining path to holistic healing. It's also the start of living one’s life from a place of pro-active creativity and mastery rather than re-

active or passive resignation and victimhood. Once firmly grasped, responsibility for one’s life becomes a precious treasure never to be relinquished; the key which unlocks all doors and dissolves all blocks to happiness and fulfilment of our true potential, both as individuals and in our relationships. Responsibility equals power! The greater the responsibility you're willing to take on, the more power you will have over your life, your health and your relationships. You begin to realise that you live in a co-creative reality, in which the potential for self-exploration, self-actualisation, health, happiness and success is virtually unlimited. Life becomes an exciting adventure to be lived, rather than a struggle to be endured A final and important point. Responsibility is not about guilt. Many of us have suffered terrible treatment and experiences in our childhoods or pasts. Sometimes there can be a morbid tendency to blame oneself for things which were absolutely not your fault. Of course such things are not our responsibility, and misplaced guilt and self-blame are utterly counter-productive to healing. What we can claim responsibility for is how we are going to respond to such woundings now and hereafter - what we are willing to make of our present life, and therefore our future. Richard Waterborn is a professional healer. His work is based on the premise that all illnesses and mental/emotional conditions can be healed from within by identifying the root causes and releasing negative energy at a cellular level.

Readers Writes If you have anything to tell us, let us know.. “I have to tell everyone about a fantastic Sunday Dinner experience at The Lemon Tree in Rio Gordo. I’m not on commission just really impressed. Choice is Pork or Chicken. 20€ a couple, (Pork is a little more) For starters each couple get a plate of Spanish cheese, a 2nd plate of Salami meats and a 3rd plate of the most delicious paté I have ever tasted along with a big bowl of georgeous mixed salad and a bowl of fresh warm soft bread and homeade salad dressing. For the main meal they bring out a whole chicken on a big roasting tray per couple surrounded by roasted spuds and yorkshire puddings. You carve yourself as if at home. With it comes 4 different types of veg in two other bowls per couple. Sweet or coffee after. Fantastic. Whatever you don´t eat they wrap for you to take home so none is wasted. See for yourself. You will need to wear elasticated trousers! Maxine, Los Perez nr Benamargosa.

) : a h a h s e k o J This guy was lonely and so he decided life would be more fun if he had a pet. He went to the pet store and told the owner that he wanted to buy an unusual pet. After some discussion he finally bought a centipede, (100 leg bug), which came in a little white box to use for his house. He took the box home, he found a good location for the box, and decided he would start off by taking his new pet to the bar for a drink. So he asked the centipede in the box, 'Would you like to go to Frank's place with me and have a beer?' Silence; there was no answer from his new Pet. This bothered him a bit, waited a few minutes and then asked him again, 'How about going to the bar and having a beer with me?' Again there was no answer, nothing but silence came from his new friend and pet. So he waited a few minutes more, thinking about the situation. He decided to ask him one more time. This time putting his face up against the centipede's house and shouting, 'Hey, in there! Would you like to go to Frank's place and have a beer with me? A little voice came out of the box: 'I heard you the first time! I'm putting my bloody shoes on!' ------------------------------------------------------------An old man walks into Jewellers with a gorgeous blonde & asks for a special ring for the lady. The jeweller says "Here's one ÂŁ5,000." The old man says "No I want a very special ring." So he pulls one out ÂŁ65,000, he says "That's the one, I'll write a cheque & when it clears on Monday we'll come & fetch it." On Monday the jeweller phones the old man &

says "There's no money in the account." The old man replies "I know, but can you imagine the weekend I've had!!" ------------------------------------------------------------A guy is 75 years old and loves to fish. He was sitting in his boat the other day when he heard a voice say, 'Pick me up.' He looked around and couldn't see anyone. He thought he was dreaming when he heard the voice say again, 'Pick me up.' He looked in the water and there, floating on the top, was a frog. The man said, 'Are you talking to me?' The frog said, 'Yes, I'm talking to you. Pick me up then, kiss me and I'll turn into the most beautiful woman you have ever seen. I'll make sure that all your friends are envious and jealous because I will be your bride!' The man looked at the frog for a short time, reached over, picked it up carefully, and placed it in his front pocket. The frog said, 'What, are you nuts? Didn't you hear what I said? I said kiss me and I will be your beautiful bride.' He opened his pocket, looked at the frog and said, 'Nah, at my age I'd rather have a talking frog.' ------------------------------------------------------------Paddy is walking down the road eating a bag of doughnuts, Murphy meets him & says 'If I can guess how many doughnuts you have in the bag, can I have one? Paddy said 'If you can guess how many doughnuts are in there you can have both of them!! '...............Murphy says 'Four!' ------------------------------------------------------------A fat bird served me food in McDonalds at lunchtime, she said 'Sorry about the wait I said 'Don't worry fatso, you'll lose it eventually'.

the Valley with a heart Roger and Pam Willoughby wish to express their grateful thanks to everyone who participated, donated or contributed to their Charity Quiz Night at Bar Atila on 4th September. Special thanks must go to Arkwrights, Hair and Beauty Salon, and Mario’s Music, all at Puente don Manuel for great raffle prizes – and of course to Jo at Bar Atila and Kim for arranging such a great night for us. Thanks to everyone’s overwhelming generosity, we raised 1,000€ on the night. Since then, donations have been received from GINS Golf Society, Coraxalia International Choir and El Valle Association. To say we have been staggered by the response is an understatement. All monies have now been donated to the Histiocytosis Association of America which is the only association worldwide which is developing protocols for the terrible disease, HLH, which caused the tragic death of our little granddaughter, Esme Rose Scarlet Carter in July, aged just 22 months. More details of the association, its works, the monies raised and videos of Esme, can be found on thank you again. we couldn’t have done it without you.
