For those readers who are wondering, I decided to take the incredible opportunity offered by the Universe and house-sit the beautiful villa in Alhaurin el Grande. So I am writing this editorial from a very pleasant conservatory. The sunlight is streaming through the windows, every now and again a breeze enters and ruffles my hair, and when I look up, rather than seeing a wall, I now see majestic mountains rising in the distance and olive trees shaking their finery in the wind. Alongside looking after the house, I am also looking after a cat, called Shamal. She is 20years-old and a very rare breed; a Dilmun desert cat from Bahrain. Unfortunately, she has kidney problems and sometimes she struggles to breathe. In fact, the vet has said she’ll be surprised if Shamal lasts more than another few months. I feel so blessed and grateful to be looking after Shamal during her last days, and helping her pass into the Light when the time comes. There is another household pet too; a gecko that lives in the conservatory. I’ve only seen him once so far, but I know he’s around as sometimes I spot gecko droppings on the floor! In ancient Native American culture a gecko is a sign of good luck and prosperity. I love the signs that Spirit sends via nature. Just yesterday, after dropping a good friend off at the airport, I stepped outside and three pure white Egrets took to the sky and circled the villa three times. Apparently that’s a sign of dreams coming true. My latest big book project is called The Light and although it is taking longer than I had hoped to launch, for me, it’s a lesson in patience. All net profit from the book sales is going straight to eight charities, and my dream is to raise at least one million dollars. So if that dream comes true, however long it takes, I will be very happy. There are some amazing transformational leaders contributing to The Light, in,

Strange News

cluding Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations with God, Don Miguel Ruiz, author of The Four Agreements, and Will Arntzdirector of the hit movie, What the Bleep do They Know. In fact, no less than 12 of the 22 contributors are already best-selling authors. That’s another dream of mine, to be a bestselling author of books which bring Light to the world!

hidey hole - A woman in South Carolina, USA, found her former boyfriend secretly living in her attic - 12 years after they split up.

Now, I’ve finished writing this editorial, I’m going to ring the bell on the roof of the house. It’s similar to a church bell and when I pull the rope its sound vibrations ripple out and cleanse the surrounding energy. I’m feeling lucky to be here :) And remember, gratitude is one of the keys which opens the door to all our dreams coming true!

The mother-of-five discovered the man after hearing ‘animal-like noises’ in the ceiling above her bedroom. She sent her nephew up to check out the sounds and he found the 44-year-old man curled up inside a heating duct. "He had packed a load of old coats and jackets into a heating unit and was sleeping in it," she told a local TV station. “He had been spying on my bedroom.” The man bolted before police arrived. Fishy business - Emergency services rushed to a suburb of Stockholm, Sweden, after reports of a gas leak - only to find a bucket of fermented herring. Two fire engines, two police cars and an emergency gas leak team all rushed to investigate the report after concerned neighbours thought they could smell gas in a stairwell. Upon investigation, it turned out to be the local delicacy ‘surstromming’, a notoriously foul-smelling dish traditionally served at autumn parties. super streaker - A streaker who disrupted an American football game in Florida set a new precedent for organised naked crime. He ran onto the pitch wearing only a red Spiderman mask to hide his face. The man managed to bob and weave over the field, eluding security guards, before jumping over two perimeter fences. It was then that he took his stunt to a new level when a getaway car arrived at his side in the nick of time. The mystery streaker jumped into the car, which promptly sped off, making good his escape. A local station TV station has taken on the mission of uncovering the man behind the mask, asking locals: "Do you know these cheeks?"

Brown says stability, reliability, and approachability. It is the colour of our earth and is associated with all things natural or organic.

In India, brown is the colour of mourning because it resembles dying leaves. American Indians believe the colour brown represents the power of self-discipline. Brown is considered a neutral colour in landscape design and is often used as a background colour. Its appearance helps to showcase other colours in the garden. Companies use brown paper to denote a natural product. If you dream of the colour brown, it means you will be lucky with money.

Brown is said to supply a feeling of wholesomeness, stability and a sense of orderliness. In the United States, Thanksgiving is represented by brown and orange. The Japanese do not have a specific word for brown. Rather, they use more descriptive names such as “tea-colour," "fox-colour," and "fallen-leaf.”

If you drive a brown vehicle, you are said to send out the that message you are a downto-earth, no-nonsense person. If the vehicle is tan or taupe, however, the message is that you are basic, timeless and have simple tastes.

aCCOrDiNg tO LiNEa DirECta, 3 OUt OF 4 aCCiDENts rEsULtiNg iN iNJUry Or DEath arE CaUsED By DriVEr ErrOr Whenever we find ourselves in a difficult or dangerous situation when we are driving we only have a fraction of a second to take a decision and carry it out correctly. Consequently, when drivers take the wrong decision, the number of accidents resulting in death or injury is tripled, as figures show that 73% of accidents are caused by drivers making a bad decision, compared to 27% in which they acted correctly. This is the main conclusion of the study “Decision-making when driving” in which 174,000 accidents resulting in injury or death have been analysed. This means that in the last 4 years, nearly 130,000 accidents resulting in injury or death could have been avoided if the drivers involved had been able to assess the dangers on the road correctly. The most common errors are due to drivers being distracted, joining roads incorrectly, turning badly, illegally overtaking and not maintaining a safe distance between the vehicle in front. As for types of road, Línea Directa’s report confirms that conventional roads are the most dangerous, due to the fact that 76% of accidents take place on them. On dual carriageways and motorways, the most common types of accident caused by driver error are rear-end collisions and vehicle crashes, mainly due to sudden braking and the switching of lanes. Driver Profile Men aged between 18 and 24 who have held a driving licence for less than two years and the over 65s are those most likely to be involved in accidents due to driver error. The former because they have a lower perception of risk and the latter because they have lost certain skills. On the other hand, women aged between 35 and 64, who have held a driving licence for 15 years or more are those who take the best decisions.

Wincham International Limited Don’t let your Dream Home get swept away by Spanish Inheritance Tax Most owners are not aware that their beneficiaries and their estate may have to pay inheritance tax both in their country of domicile and in Spain. Spanish law dictates that the beneficiary of your estate must pay tax on the amount that they inherit. The level of tax payable is not a fixed rate and is determined by the relationship to the deceased, their residency status and their existing wealth in Spain. In addition the estate of the deceased could be liable to pay inheritance tax in their country of domicile. For example if the deceased was UK domiciled and had worldwide assets in excess of £325,000 then the estate could also be liable for inheritance tax at 40% payable in the UK. What are the options to minimise the liability? Unfortunately it is common practice for lawyers and tax advisers who are not conversant with both jurisdictions to advise based on their own knowledge and this is often insufficient. We have known of cases in the past where property owners in Spain have been advised to prepare a Spanish Will to avoid the tax. In fact this does not avoid any tax and it is unnecessary to have a separate Will in Spain. The tax is paid by the person inheriting the asset and therefore the existence of a Will does nothing to minimise this. There are also times when the existence of a separate Will in Spain complicates matters and increases legal costs. It is vitally important that all British owners of Spanish property have a UK Will dealing with their worldwide assets and therefore no other Will is required in any other country. Another misconception is that by simply taking out a mortgage on the property it will reduce the tax liability on death. It is true that the value of the asset will be reduced by the amount outstanding on the mortgage however, the Banks often insist that life policies are taken out which pay off the mortgage on death and the beneficiaries are back to inheriting the whole of the unencumbered property. Even if there is not a life policy then there is a substantial debt outstanding which will have to be paid before the property can be transferred. Finally the most dangerous option that is put forward is to transfer the property to your children or beneficiaries now. The Spanish tax is payable not only on the inheritance of a property but also the gifting of a property so the tax would be paid sooner rather than later. Also once the property is in the names of your beneficiaries then you have to be able to trust that they will not dispose or charge your asset and leave you homeless. Issues of insolvency, divorce and your beneficiary pre-deceasing you can also add complications to what appeared to be a simple transaction. At Wincham our solution has been tried and tested for many years and we are constantly updating our processes to ensure that the advice we give is in line with current legislation both in Spain and the UK. Our business is expanding and we have recently opened an office to provide assistance for Spanish Property Owners who originate from Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. the solution - Quite simply you invest your Spanish property into your own UK Company of which you will be the Director and shareholder and have total control. Contrary to popular belief there would be no 7% Property Transfer Tax payable on this transaction. Our method enables you to utilise Spanish legislation to conveniently own and maintain your home within a corporate structure in the most tax efficient way. Although the use of an off shore Company creates an additional 3% tax burden each year, the UK is not classed as off shore. In line with EU treaties Spain must provide UK Companies with the same benefits and opportunities that they allow their own Companies and cannot charge the 3% tax.

Halloween Facts Halloween is one of my favourite times of year! When else can kids and adults alike let loose, wear strange and scary costumes and decorate their homes with giant spiders. Here are some fun facts with which to delight your friends: Halloween dates back more than 2,000 years! Nov. 1st was Samhain (SAHwin), which was the day Celtic people celebrated New Year’s Day! The night before Samhain (now Halloween), spirits and demons were said to walk the earth. Celts were said to dress in costumes and walk the streets performing silly acts for food and drink! Orange & black are Halloween colours because orange is associated with the fall harvest and black is associated with darkness and death. Jack o’ lanterns originated in… Ireland of all places! People would place candles in hol-

lowed out turnips (not pumpkins) to keep away spirits and ghosts on the Samhain holiday. Trick-or-treating is believed to be an Irish tradition. In preparation for All Hallow’s Eve, townspeople would visit neighbours and ask for food contributions for the town feast. Halloween is Oct. 31st – the last day of the Celtic calendar. It actually was a pagan holiday honoring the dead. Spooky Halloween Expenditures! Halloween spending is predicted to reach $5.77 billion despite the financial crisis. American’s spend $35 million on Halloween greeting cards alone. The average American will spend $24.17 on costumes and $20.39 on candy. The highest-grossing Halloween movie of all time is ... Jaws! It was released in 1975 by Steven Spielberg and pulled in $842 million at the box office. No. 2 on the list: The Exorcist

Jellyfish are rarely aggressive towards humans; they will only sting if brushed against or trapped. They swim by contracting and expanding their bodies. A group of jellyfish is called a 'smack'.

Most jellyfish do not have a brain, but their strong nervous system can detect light, odour and external stimuli and generates appropriate response. The turritopsis nutricula jellyfish is, to all intents and purposes, immortal – after growing from a polyp into adulthood and reproducing, it can transform itself back into a polyp and begin the whole process again. The most poisonous species of jellyfish is the Irukandji jellyfish. On being stung, the victim will suffer symptoms including nausea, vomiting, cramps, high blood pressure and severe pain, sometimes leading to death.

To advertise call 664 210 468 or email


Amazing Marine Life (Continued) An effective first-aid treatment for a jellyfish sting is to pour vinegar over it. Jellyfish evolved in the sea before dinosaurs walked the earth. They can be white, pink, yellow, orange, red, blue, green, mulor ticoloured completely transparent. They can measure as little as one inch in diameter or as much as four metres; some species have tentacles 100 feet long.

They are made up of 95 per cent water, and need to be surrounded by it constantly or they die. Jellyfish venom is intended to paralyse its victims. Box jellyfish have 24 eyes. A type of box jellyfish, commonly known as sea wasp (scientific name Chironex fleckeri) causes 20-40 deaths every year in the Philippines. The largest jellyfish in the world can grow to more than 120 feet long. It is called the Lion’s Mane jellyfish and lives in the Arctic Sea, the North Atlantic Sea and Northern Pacific Ocean. In countries such as Japan, Korea and China, it is considered a delicacy to eat jellyfish.

Heiko By Heiko Optician’s Unveil the secret code of your eyes at Heiko by Heiko Optician’s The future of the optical sector has arrived. 3D technology, which you will have heard people talking about with regard to showing you films, adverts, football matches etc... in three dimensions, is now available at your local Optician’s in Torre del Mar store only. Peter Hejnfelt, the manager of Heiko by Heiko Optician’s, is always committed to innovation and has given us the revolutionary Visioffice measurement system. Developed by Essilor, the leader in contact and progressive lenses, this device reveals the human eye’s secret code, or Eyecode. To find out how this futuristic system works and what advantages it offers lens wearers, we have popped into its well-known centre on Avda. de Andalucía 119 in Torre del Mar. We asked Peter what Eyecode is and what exactly is measured with Visioffice. “This modern optical instrument is allowing us to take a dynamic 3D measurement, based on the exact location of the Eye Rotation Centre,” he said. “This precise piece of information is called the Eyecode and it is completely unique for each user and is non-transferable. Thus, all lenses which are designed based on this parameter are always imprinted with their owners’ initials. “Pinpointing the exact location of the Eye Rotation Centre leads to perfect integration with the lens, obtaining up to five times greater precision than a lens without Eyecode. Users will experience instant vision with no effort.”

However, Visioffice has gone even further, letting us anticipate what we could call the future of optics. Thanks to this ground-breaking technique, the ‘visual footprint’ of each individual is generated in only minutes, based on their visual physiognomy and movements. “This means you can virtually try on a wide range of different frames, as well as watching several virtual demonstrations of specific products, such as polarised lenses or Transitions – with changing colours. “With Visioffice, we can obtain a comcustom-depletely signed lens.

Things That Will Make You Think And No Doubt Try! Don’t really try them.... just for fun!! Can you cry under water? How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered? Why do you have to 'put your two cents in'... but it's only a 'penny for your thoughts'? Where's that extra penny going to? Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity? Why does a round pizza come in a square box? What disease did cured ham actually have? How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage? Why is it that people say they 'slept like a baby' when babies wake up like every two hours?

If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing? Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV? Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground? Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune? Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're going to see you naked anyway... Why is 'bra' singular and 'panties' plural? Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat? Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs! I bet you tried to sing the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle didn’t you ! :)

“I never liked dogs until.....

I was 69 years old & found a bundle of white fluff in the rubbish, destined for certain death. I named him ‘Zero’ because that’s what I knew about him, his age, breed, background, etc. He had captured my heart. Me, the anti-dog person! His impact on me was profound, an impact I could never have imagined. His life was short, 18 months in fact, he had 3 operations on bad legs & I had carried him for 6 months, all 60 kilos of him. His courage and gentle nature won me over more than ever. The bitter sadness of losing him was overwhelming..... This touching book “I never liked

dogs until...” is available on Kindle

they never mature anyway. 5. Men are all the same - they just have different faces, so we can tell them apart. 6. Best way to get a man to do something is to suggest he is too old for it. 7. Love is blind, but marriage is a real eyeopener. 8. The children of Israel wandered around the desert for 40 years. Even in Biblical times, men wouldn't ask for directions.

1. Don't imagine you can change a man - unless he's in nappies. 2. What do you do if your boyfriend walks out? You shut the door. 3. If they put a man on the moon - they should be able to put them all up there. 4. Go for the younger man. You might as well,

Are You Getting The Big Picture?

Sat.Co Answers you always wanted to know but were too shy to ask. In TV technology, size really does matter. You know what it’s like when you buy your new flat screen TV from one of the stores in Spain. Get it home, switch it on for the first time and the picture will not fit the screen. What’s going on? It always did on the old TV we had. Your partner is upset after spending all this money. “There’s something wrong with it; take it back. There must something wrong with the picture valve or, I know – ring Sat. Co – they should know why the picture is all wrong!” So... let us restore marital bliss to this once happy home. Widescreen TVs have been available since the late 1980s, although at that time there were very few broadcasts in widescreen apart from some feature films. 16.9 widescreen and 4.3 refer to the dimensions or size of the picture to be viewed. It just means 16 across the top and 9 down the side. When the video content is in wide screen format – and more importantly, the satellite receiver and TV are set to 16.9 widescreen format, the picture fits the screen perfectly. Everybody is the right size, height and build. “Aha! Fixed it,” you think. Not just yet, though – try changing channel! ITV3... another re-run of Colombo. “Wait a minute.. Peter Falk was never that fat and short.” Colombo is now in the old 4.3 format. Just remember 4 along the top

and 3 down the side. The TV is now pulling the picture from the sides to fit the screen. We could set the TV satellite receiver or DVD player to 4.3 format to get Peter Falk back to his usual size and shape, but this would leave a big black band down the left and right side. Unfortunately there is no magic answer to this small problem. Peter Falk will have to remain shorter and fatter if we want to fill the screen. Many films now are in 21.9 format and when viewed on your new flat screen TV, leave a black band top and bottom, but at least everybody is the right shape. By using the zoom button on your new flat screen TV it is possible to zoom into more and more of the centre of the picture in an effort to fill the screen with the picture, but it loses picture content from the sides as well as top and bottom. At least the people are the right shape! If your TV is one of the old 4.3 format ones, you may have noticed that you are losing some of the bigger picture. For instance, the credits of the film are lost to the sides or you only get half the score of the big game off to the top left of the screen. This is usually when the satellite receiver or DVD player is set to widescreen. The answer is to change the satellite receiver or DVD player to 4.3; now, the picture fits the screen but the characters are thinner and taller. Still confused? Then why not visit one of our weekly demonstrations, where we explain this and other modern TV technology issues.

Don’t Waste That Lemon Peel Many professionals in restaurants are using or consuming the entire lemon and nothing is wasted. How can you use the whole lemon without waste? Simple... place the lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater, and shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods. Sprinkle it in your whiskey, wine, vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish dishes. All of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste, something that you may have never tasted before. Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C. Not anymore. Now that you've learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon even in instant cup noodles. What's the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes? Lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that's what you've been wasting. But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the whole lemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier. It's also good that lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body. So place your lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your meal every day. It is a key to make your foods tastier and you get to live healthier and longer! That's the lemon secret! Better late than NEVER! The surprising benefits of lemon! Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes. You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc... It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and

tumors. This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders. The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that: It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas... The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells. And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.

New Mum in Town I have recently experienced the wonder that is pregnancy and childbirth, and I am currently living the reality of being a new mum, in a foreign country. When I was pregnant, I decided to keep a diary of my new life with my new baby…now, each month, I will share this magical journey with you. I thought I would start from my last day as a mum-to-be. 7th January 2012. I’ve recovered from my first alcohol-free Christmas and New Year. I had started 2012 with a fuzz-free head and I was back in Almuñecar after spending a few days in Malaga (where babs was going to be born). Due to the ever-increasing size of my belly, I spend most of the day on the sofa. Dusk arrives, as does a friend. We take my dogs and go for a long walk — I mean waddle — along the beach: all fifteen minutes of it, including a pot of tea and cake in a nearby cafe! So much for exercise! I get home and, yet again, the sofa beckons. Evening arrives, as does the soon-to-be Dad, wanting to go for a drink and tapas. Well, go on then, I thought. As we get to our ‘local’, I am greeted with great anticipation and excitement. I had already been warned that full moons affect pregnancy and this night, the moon was just that. As I sip my water, I can’t help but think – could tonight be the night? My last night of freedom? 9pm – back home. My back is killing me. My ankles are the size of footballs. Time to lie down and attempt some meditation. 3am – I wake up with cramps. Great, another sleepless night. 5am – I run myself a bath and try to time the cramps. I start to nod off then, suddenly – WOWSERS – I’m having contractions every two minutes! The plan of keeping calm and relaxed quickly melts away as I ‘shock wake´ the father, rush him to the car and demand a quick, yet calming, one hour’s journey to Malaga! 7am –I’m in Urgencias. I’m quickly hooked up

to the monitors and made to sign papework. At this point, my baby bump is practically touching my knees. 9am – the doctor arrives for work; typical! I’m rushed to my room. I request a pool birth and an exercise ball. No epidural. Now, babs was clearly against this as she decided that she was going to make this labour quick but INTENSE! So, just minutes later, I am demanding “Give me the epidural NOW.” Once again, it’s all change and I am rushed downstairs where there is a team of four waiting for me, all trying to have conversations in which I did not wish to take part. I am given the epidural – I had never known the effects of drugs until that moment. I was having an out-of-body experience – cool, man. From then on, I was totally relaxed and, hold on…numb from the waist down. Why was I not told this? I was no longer in control. It was now down to the team of young doctors and nurses to help bring babs into this world. I was given a target of 1pm. This challenge really helps a competitive mind like mine, so I was then focused. Halfway through, I am asked if I would like to see where I am at and have a look in the mirror. My first thought was of the film `Knocked Up’…my reaction was “EW, no no no”. I did not need to see that. I’m told I have one more big push to go, the blanket is laid on my lap, everyone is in position. 1, 2, 3, “Vamos Helen, empuja, empuja...” 1.20pm - my baby girl is here, one week early! She came out screaming (the lungs had formed well), clearly not impressed with her new environment. I was in shock. Was it really over? Was I now a Mummy? Was she okay? Then she was given back to me. I couldn’t believe it... I had done it. She was finally here, and she was perfect. The love was like nothing I’d felt before…now the real fun was about to begin and I suddenly realised that I was starving! more next month

Girl Power At ‘A Place In The Sun Live’ Exhibition

When I caught up with the ladies from Buy A Home Spain in Torre del Mar a couple of weeks ago, they told me that they were looking forward to going to A Place in the Sun Live at the NEC in Birmingham again this year as they were expecting lots of positivity from the thousands of visitors to the exhibition. There was a multitude of reasons for this optimism, one being that the sterling to euro exchange rate is much more favourable for British buyers; in fact it is about 20 per cent better than when they were at the NEC last autumn.

Spain is still the number one place where British people want to buy and Angela Taylor was telling me that she has joined forces with one of the biggest wealth management companies to offer a unique service to UK buyers. Buy A Home Spain are now able to offer up to a 100 per cent release of funds from any UK pension fund so she is now able to show people, regardless of age, how to use their pension fund to buy their dream Spanish property. So now, as well as helping with property sales and rentals, they are able to help you maximise your wealth and help you achieve your financial

goals by getting more from your expatriate status and unlocking the potential of your wealth, assets and pensions.

Rent/Buy A Home Spain was invited by the managing director of A Place in the Sun as the representative for Spain to sit on the panel of experts taking part in a daily question and answer session about the world property market. It is quite an honour for one of our local agents to be chosen for their professionalism over and above all the other agents from around Spain who were at the exhibition, and Angela was on the panel for all three days. Now, we are looking forward to seeing the success that Angela and her girls achieve in helping buyers find their dream home from the property owners here in the Axarquia. See main advert on page 2

Airflux - Air Filled Beds distribution of equal pressure between the body and the mattress' surface. The adjustable mattress firmness simply increases or reduces the overall contact area for your body on the sleeping surface. Foam Cover Sleep on air – the perfect therapy Anyone suffering from an orthopaedic complaint (e.g. rheumatism, back pain) or a disability will know that good quality sleep and a correct sleeping position are highly dependent on the type of bed and mattress used. But why does this matter? It is important to achieve an even, elastic and flexible (horizontal and vertical) distribution of weight over the entire contact area of the body. The body’s pain receptors react quickly to pressure and sleeping in pain can never be healthy! How can the ideal pressure distribution be achieved? With air! Only air ensures that the effects of this elasticity are transferred directly to the body. No rubber foam, slats or steel springs are required. This healthy, airbased sleep system is called AIRLUX®. AIRLUX® allows the body to float as if sleeping on clouds. No electricity or motor and completely noise and maintenance free. The pressure can be individually adjusted within the sections of the air core. Ventilation channels prevent the build-up of moisture and natural materials maintain a stable bed environment. Health is ‘built in’. The AIRLUX® air core technology is inside every Classic mattress Air Core The air core uses its flexible air chambers, which are made from special polyurethane material (solvent and maintenance free) developed by AIRLUX®, to ensure an optimum

The special, soft quality foam cover of the sleeping surface, in an open design, prevents humidity ensuring optimal ventilation and a perfect sleeping climate. Foam Frame The patented AIRLUX® technology is integrated into the structure of the PUF (PU foam) frame. A single bed requires one pump case (pump case, reservoir and pressure reduction valve situated on the side of the mattress). A double bed requires two pump cases; one on either side. 10 Year AIRLUX® Warranty AIRLUX® beds do not require an engine or electricity. They are service and maintenance free. AIRLUX® issues full warranty for the first five years from the purchase date, as well as a further five years of limited warranty for the air core and the air technology. This warranty includes all material and labour costs; however, it does not include any travel expenses and costs for shipping or express delivery. The warranty does not apply for any covers, as the individual loads and stress may vary extensively. The Airlux team are in Torre del Mar on 12th 15th October at Saboa Beach Club (just past the Feria ground). There are lectures from Dr. Peter Gündner, who was the director of Wiedemann Kliniken's wellness and medical centre in Gran Canaria for many years and is an expert on healthy living. There will also be live music from International artist Peter Knöpfli, from 7.30pm - 9pm every evening. Why not come down to the Beach Club and find more about this fantastic product. Sleep tight!

At 689 metres above sea level we discover Sedella, so named, according to the town hall website, because Queen Isabella when told of the fight between Christians and Muslims at an area known as Arroyo de la Matanza said, Sé de ella (I know about it) At such an altitude you can be sure of magnificent views and in fact on clear days you can even see the Atlas Mountains! Closer to home are the mountains of Bentomiz and the Sierra Tejeda. To get to Sedella the best route by car is either via Canillas de Aceituno or from the autovia turn off at Algarrobo and drive inland past Sayalonga, turn left for Archez, drive over the bridge and then turn right following signs for Salares and Sedella. Having arrived at Sedella, continue driving as if going on to Canillas de Aceituno and park the car where you can by the last entrance to the village, one of the first places of interest is the public laundry or wash house situated between three green trimmed arches, which before the invention of washing machines was in constant use by the towns women. Onwards and upwards to the main square and the most unique build-

ing in town, the Casa del Torreón or Tower House, Mudéjar in origin and the former home of the Mayor of Donceles, Lord of Sedella, it was built in the 16th century in the Mudéjar style over a quadrangular floor plan. The tower has twin arches on Renaissance columns with a beam supported hip roof. Majestically sitting at the highest point in the village up a flight of 12 steps is the church of San Andrés with its square two part tower and octagonal belfry, the only vestige of the original 16th century building. If the climb up has made you thirsty you can take a libation in the Bar just below the church. Sedella borders with the municipalities of Canillas de Aceituno, Canillas de Albaida, Salares, Arenas and Alhama de Granada and is one of the 31 villages in the Axarquía that form the Ruta Mudéjar and as mentioned above, the village is filled with examples of Mudéjar architecture and in cases where new houses have been built you can often see how the original Mudéjar design has influenced the design. (see photo!) Like many Axarquía villages Sedella suffered in the earthquake of 1884 but luckily for the inhabitants only the buildings were damaged and there was no loss of life.

Property Of The Month 165,000€

AS2728 Sedella

Delightful 2/3 bedroom, 95m2 bungalow, situated on the outskirts of the peaceful village of Sedella, with wonderful walking tracks in and around the national park and even up to the top of Mount Maroma, if you are feeling fit!

There is a rustic style kitchen with gas hob, stone arch and door to covered terrace, good size lounge with wood burner, air conditioning and doors out to the covered terrace, good sized bathroom, bedroom 1 with fitted wardrobes and electric wall heater, bedroom 2 with wardrobe space and single bedroom 3/study.

$$$ Share’oscope $$$

A woman and a baby were in the doctor's examining room in Attercliffe, waiting for the doctor to come in for the baby's first exam. The doctor arrived, and examined the baby - a poor skinny little thing, checked his weight, and being a little concerned, asked if the baby was breast-fed or bottle-fed. “Breast-fed,” she replied.. “Well, strip down to your waist,” the doctor ordered. She did. He pinched her nipples, pressed, kneaded, and rubbed both breasts for a while in a very professional and detailed examination. Lots of hums and hahs ... Motioning to her to get dressed, the doctor said, “No wonder this baby is underweight. You don't have any milk.” “I know,” she said, “I'm his Grandma, but I'm glad I came”. -------------------------------------------------------------An old Irish farmer's dog goes missing and he's inconsolable.

Claim to fame: Singing Country and Western songs Kris’s paternal grandparents immigrated from Sweden, where his grandfather was an officer in the Swedish Army. When Kris was a child, his father pushed him toward a military career. He graduated from Pomona College, California, in 1958 with a BA, summa cum laude, in Literature, and earned a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford University, where his college was Merton. While at Oxford he was awarded his Blue for boxing and began writing songs. In 1960, he graduated with a BPhil in English literature, but under pressure from his family, ultimately joined the US Army and achieved the rank of Captain. He became a helicopter pilot and was stationed in West Germany in the 1950s. Here, he resumed his music career and formed a band. When his tour of duty ended, he was given an assignment to teach English Literacy at West

Point, but decided to leave the Army and pursue songwriting; his family disowned him because of this decision and they never reconciled with him. He worked at a variety of odd jobs while struggling for success in music, including sweeping floors at Columbia Studios in Nashville. There he met Johnny Cash, who initially accepted some of his songs but chose not to use them. During a spell working as a commercial helicopter pilot for an oil company, Kris wrote ‘Help me make it through the Night’ while sitting on an oil platform out at sea. The song eventually gained him the ‘country song of the year’ award at the Grammys in 1971. His musical break came in 1966 when one of his songs, ‘Vietnam Blues’ was recorded by Dave Dudley and hit the American charts. Others followed, and he began to gain recognition as a performer himself when Johnny Cash introduced him at Newport Folk Festival; he had previously grabbed Cash's attention when he landed his helicopter in his yard without prior arrangement to give him some tapes. He received a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor for his role in ‘A Star Is Born’ (with Barbara Streisand), which he noted had been an experience "worse than boot camp." He has been married three times and has eight children; he also had flings with Janis Joplin, Joan Baez and Barbara Streisand. His previous wives were high school sweetheart Frances Beer and singer Rital Coolidge. One of his sons, Jody, is a professional wrestler.

LT Construction sive luxury. The electric arms can be fitted to existing gates quite easily at an affordable price.

GATES AND PILLARS Gates and pillars should not only give your home a feeling of security and permanence, but should also make a statement about you and your home. It’s the public face your house presents to the world. It doesn’t need to be over the top or ostentatious, and the aesthetic approach can either be a subtle blending-in with the surrounding environment, or conversely - given that many driveways are so far separated from the home - one can build an entrance which is unique. We are specialists in installing electric gate systems. Opening and closing your gates while remaining in your car need not be an expen-

LT Construction builds all gates and pillar systems using a ‘single unit’ design. This means that both pillars are connected together in a ‘U’ shape by reinforced concrete, which is then embedded deep into the ground. This method ensures that the pillars remain parallel and therefore the gates remain flush in the long term. We often take calls from clients needing urgent repair to their gates which have fallen out of alignment, having been built individually and not as a single unit. Contact us if you are considering a gate and pillar system for your home. We will assist you in designing and installing a gate system that offers security as well as creating a statement. Take a look at our website to see various designs, and call us today to discuss making your home more secure. See main advert below

TK’S - Laguna Beach At long last, Thomas and Kirsten of the Ribhouse fame have opened a new restaurant! They have taken their two initials T and K to create their restaurant name — TKs -- located at Laguna Beach in Torrox Costa. As soon as I heard they had opened, I booked a Sunday lunch as at the old place, it was one of the best around. As usual on arrival, Thomas was on top form, cracking jokes with the clients, larking about with our kids and creating a great atmosphere. Most of the tables were dressed outside on the large covered terrace. The nice wooden furniture makes a pleasant change from those infamous plastic tables and chairs, which half the time collapse under my immense weight!! We had homemade soup to start — a large tureen of it — and on this occasion, it was mushroom. As usual, it was perfectly seasoned, tasty and there was loads of it! We had already pre-booked lamb and pork for our mains, which are served with the appropriate mint and apple respectively, together with an abundance of gravy in separate boats. All

this is accompanied by Yorkshires, roasties and four freshly-cooked vegetables to complete the dinner. It really is a delicious Sunday lunch and well worth a visit. There is always a good selection of desserts and on this occasion, the choice was — amongst others — fresh fruit salad, homemade peach cake, apple crumble and various crepes, all served with either custard, cream or ice cream. It was great to see Thomas and Kirsten back doing what they do best: knocking out top grub at a top restaurant. They really are a top couple!

Film iew us e RevPrometh Science fiction is at its best when it is both exciting and thought-provoking. And that is what you get with Ridley Scott’s new film Prometheus. In a return to form, Scott presents a visually stunning vision of the future as he takes us along the journey of the ship Prometheus on a mission to discover the origins of humanity. In a technical sense, there is no doubt that Prometheus is a prequel to Alien. It is in the same universe, and takes place a few decades before Ripley and the crew of the USCSS Nostromo were woken up to check out what was

happening on LV-426. Prometheus kicks off in the year 2089 with Dr. Elizabeth Shaw and her boyfriend Charlie Holloway (played by Logan Marshall-Green) discovering a star map in a cave in Scotland, the oldest of a series they have found throughout the Earth. They decide this is an invitation from some alien visitors who guided humanity. Sparking the interest of Peter Weyland, founder of Weyland Corporation (the precursor to the ubiquitous Weyland-Yatuni from the rest of the Alien series) they and a crew of (mostly) forgettable characters are sent off to LV-223, a moon in an unknown system on board the ship Prometheus. Once on the moon, the team of scientists dive into a dome; a creepy horror show waiting to happen. Besides a few lapses in logic and character motivation, Prometheus is an entertaining and thought-provoking movie. You may feel that the film ends up leaving you with more questions than answers.

Random Jokes Little Johnny rushes into the living room of a tenth-floor apartment. "Mummy, mummy, you told me a lie!" "Why do you say that Johnny?" "Because you told me that my baby brother was a little angel!" "But that's true; he is" "So why didn't he fly when I threw him out of the window?" ------------------------------------------------------------It was Postman Pat's last day on the job after 35 years of carrying the mail through all kinds of weather to the same villages and towns. When he arrived at the first house on his route, he was greeted by the whole family there, who all hugged and congratulated him and sent him on his way with a cheque for £50. At the second house they presented him an 18carat gold watch. The folks at the third house handed him a bottle of 15-year old Scotch whisky. At the fourth house he was met at the door by a dumb blonde in her lingerie. She took him by the arm and led him up the stairs to the bedroom where she blew his mind with the most passionate love he had ever experienced.

When they went downstairs, the blonde fixed him a full English breakfast: Bacon, Eggs, Sausage & Tomato with freshly squeezed orange juice. As she was pouring him a cup of steaming coffee, he noticed a quid coin in the saucer. 'All this was just too wonderful for words,' he said, 'but what's the quid for?' 'Well,' said the dumb blonde, 'Last night, I told my husband that today would be your last day and that we should do something special for you'. 'I asked him what I should give you'. He said, 'F**k him. Give him a quid.' She smiled shyly and said, 'The breakfast was my idea.' ------------------------------------------------------------The thing I love most about this hot weather is the short skirts and low cut tops. Although they do make me look a bit gay. ------------------------------------------------------------Remember the 7 qualities for the perfect girlfriend - Beautiful, Intelligent, Gentle, Thoughtful, Innocent, Trustworthy, Sensible. Or in other words............. B.I.G.T.I.T.S.

Claire Paczko - Lawyer and Olympic TorchBearer We caught up with Claire from the North East

How far did you run? Fortunately, not far! It was approximately 400 yards; some of the Torchbearers were given slightly longer routes than others although it was luck of the draw. Why were you nominated? I was nominated and selected by the Olympic Committee on account of the 15 or so years of national and regional charity work. Some of the fundraising I undertake on my own and at other times, I am part of a team. The causes I support vary and the activities range from sponsored abseils and runs raising a hundred pounds or so, to strategic event management, raising thousands.

the mechanics in it, it weighed 1 kg. It has since been disabled and now weighs half that. Did you go to any of the Games? I successfully bid for quarter final football tickets at St James Park in Newcastle! I didn’t bid for anything else at the time but wish I had. What are your lasting memories of the Torch Relay? At 09.23 on Saturday 16th June 2012, albeit for a few minutes, I was the only person in the whole world carrying the Olympic Flame! It’s such a phenomenal thought, it’s almost too intense to think about! I feel so inspired by the Olympians and Paralympians. I’d really love to go to Rio, and I am going to try.

Is the Torch yours to keep? Yes, I paid £200 for it. It is the actual torch I carried still with the scorch marks on top and down one side.

Why are you here in Spain? I am on holiday and staying with Dawn and Dave Williams. I know Dawn and her husband Dave really enjoyed the Olympics and watched me carry the Olympic Flame live online, so I thought I would bring the Torch over to Spain to show her. Whilst my visit wasn’t a surprise, the arrival of my Torch was!

How heavy is the torch? On the day with all

I even got to hold it myself! - Thanks Claire

) : a h a h s e k o J Yossel Zelkovitz worked in a Polish pickle factory. For many years he had a powerful desire to put his penis in the pickle slicer. Unable to stand it any longer, he sought professional help from the factory psychologist. After six months, the therapist gave up. He advised Yossel to go ahead and do it or he would probably never have any peace of mind. The next day he came home from work very early. His wife, Sacha became alarmed and wanted to know what had happened. Yossel tearfully confessed his tormenting desire to put his penis in the pickle slicer. He went on to explain that today he finally went ahead and did it and he was immediately fired. Sacha gasped and ran over to her husband. She quickly yanked down his pants and shorts only to find a normal, completely intact penis. She looked up and said, "I don't understand. What about the pickle slicer?" Yossel replied, "I think she got fired too." --------------------------------------------------------------An 80 year old woman was arrested for shop lifting. When she went before the judge he asked her, "What did you steal?" She replied, "A can of peaches." The judge then asked her why she had stolen the can of peaches which she replied that she was hungry. The judge then asked her how many peaches were in the can. She replied, "6." The judge said, "Then I will give you 6 days in jail." Before the judge could conclude the trial, the woman's husband spoke......and asked the judge if he could say something. The judge said, "What is it?" The husband said, "She also stole a large can of peas." --------------------------------------------------------------Some years ago, Paddy married an attractive woman, Maggie, half his age, in a small coastal Irish community. After several months, Maggie complained that she had never climaxed during sex and according to her Grandmother, all Irish women are entitled to a climax once in a while. So to resolve

the problem, they went to see the Veterinarian since there was no trustworthy doctor anywhere in the village. The Vet didn't have a clue, but he did recall how, during the hot summer, his mother and father would fan a cow that was having difficulty breeding, with a big towel. This would cool her down and make her relax. So the Vet told them to hire a strong, virile young man to wave a big towel over them while they were having sex. This, the Vet said, would cause the young wife to cool down, relax then climax. So the couple hired a strong young man from Dublin to wave that big towel over them as the Vet suggested. After many efforts, Maggie still had not climaxed so they went back to the vet. The Vet said for her to change partners and let the young man have sex with her while Paddy waved the big towel. They tried it that night and Maggie went into wild, screaming, ear-splitting climaxes, one right after the other for about two and a half hours. When it was over, Paddy looked down at the exhausted young man and in a boasting voice said: 'And THAT, me son, is how ya waves a fookin' towel!'... --------------------------------------------------------------A man is recovering from surgery when the Surgical Nurse appears and asks him how he is feeling. 'I'm O. K. But I didn't like the four letter-word the doctor used in surgery,' he answered. 'What did he say,' asked the nurse. 'Oops!' --------------------------------------------------------------The graveside service just barely finished, when there was massive clap of thunder, followed by a tremendous bolt of lightning, accompanied by even more thunder rumbling in the distance... The little old man looked at the pastor and calmly said, 'Well, she's there.' --------------------------------------------------------------Paddy’s in the bathroom and Murphy shouts to him, “Did you find the shampoo?” Paddy says, “yes but it’s for dry hair and I’ve just wet mine.”

Jokes h a h a :) On January 9th, a group of Pekin, Illinois bikers were riding west on I-74 when they saw a girl about to jump off the Murray Baker Bridge. So they stopped. George, their leader, a big burly man of 53, gets off his Harley, walks through a group of gawkers, past the State Trooper, and says, "What are you doing?" She says, "I'm going to commit suicide." While he didn't want to appear "sensitive," he didn't want to miss a be-a-legend opportunity either so he asked ... "Well, before you jump, why don't you give me a kiss?" So, with no hesitation at all, she leaned back over the railing and did just that ... and it was a long, deep, lingering kiss followed immediately by another one. After they finished, George gets approval from his biker-buddies, the onlookers, and even the State Trooper, and says, "Wow! That was the best kiss I have ever had, Honey! That's a real talent you're wasting, Sugar Shorts. You could be famous if you rode with me. Why are you committing suicide?" "My parents don't like me dressing up like a girl." It's still unclear whether she jumped or was pushed. --------------------------------------------------------------A guy is driving around the back woods of Montana and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house: 'Talking Dog For Sale'. He rings the door bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there. 'You talk ?' he asks. 'Yep,' the Lab replies. After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says 'So, what's your story?' The Lab looks up and says, 'Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA. In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.' 'I was one of their most valuable spies for eight

years running... But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.' 'I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired.' The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog. 'Ten dollars,' the guy says. 'Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?' 'Because he's a Bulls*******. He's never been out of the back garden' --------------------------------------------------------------Two guys were discussing popular family trends on sex, marriage and Family values. Bill said, 'I didn't sleep with my wife before we got married, did you?' Larry replied, 'I'm not sure, what was her maiden name?' --------------------------------------------------------------A little boy went up to his father and asked: 'Dad, where did my intelligence come from?' The father replied. 'Well, son, you must have got it from your mother, cause I still have mine.' --------------------------------------------------------------'Mr. Clark, I have reviewed this case very carefully,' the divorce Court Judge said, 'And I've decided to give your wife ÂŁ775 a week,' 'That's very fair, your honour,' the husband said. 'And every now and then I'll try to send her a few quid myself.' --------------------------------------------------------------A doctor examining a woman who had been rushed to the Emergency Room, took the husband aside, and said, 'I don't like the look of your wife at all.' 'Me neither doc,' said the husband. 'But she's a great cook and really good with the kids.' --------------------------------------------------------------Paddy spies a letter lying on his doormat. It says on the envelope "DO NOT BEND ". Paddy spends the next 2 hours trying to figure out how to pick the bloody thing up.
