I’m now back in Spain for two months! It’s so nice to be here again, especially for the amazing gambas pil pil that I’ve missed in the USA – plus the hot sunny days, of course! I’ve also been very busy since arriving, mainly with getting my apartment de-cluttered and cleaned out (a big thanks to Carousel second hand furniture shop for helping with that…do pop in there and take a look at my old stuff!) I’ve also spent many hours in IKEA buying furniture and other odds and ends in order to redecorate. In fact, the process has been easy so far. I simply chose an IKEA living room that I liked and copied it, even down to the colour of the walls! The most enjoyable part of my trip here so far has been catching up with my lovely parents, and meeting friends from La Herradura and Marbella so far – although there are plenty more friends to see in the coming weeks. October 11th marks my one year wedding anniversary with Terry (though I call him ‘T’) and we’re celebrating with a road trip to Porto, Portugal. T has travelled to 97 countries in his life so far, but he has never been to Portugal, so this will increase his total to 98 countries visited! After that we’re going to Paris and Axis Provence, where T is holding seminars, and I’ll get to see him in action, doing what he loves. So it’s a very busy time for me right now, especially coupled with the usual book writing, book editing for clients, Sentinella-ing, and managing the new online business I recently started.

Strange News Mandarin Magic An Australian man woke up from a week-long coma after a car crash to find he could speak only Mandarin. Ben McMahon, 22, woke up and saw a nurse who looked Asian standing by his bed and said, "Excuse me nurse, I feel really sore here", in perfect Chinese. He then asked the nurse for a pen and paper and wrote in Mandarin: "I love my mum, I love my dad, I will recover." His newfound language skills baffled his doctors and family. Despite taking Mandarin at school, he had never been fluent in the language. "I wasn't consciously thinking I was speaking Mandarin, it was what just came out and it was what was most natural to me," he said. It took Melbourne-based Mr McMahon two or three more days to recall how to speak English, but since then, his language skills have opened up new opportunities for him — including leading Chinese tours of his hometown and even hosting a Mandarin TV programme. size Matters A house thought to be Britain's narrowest has been put up for sale for more than £200,000. The two-bedroomed terraced house, in Harringay, North London, is believed to have been built on a driveway between two other homes. Measuring just 83 inches in width, the property boasts a reception room, kitchen and bathroom, as well as a roof terrace to provide outside space. It was due to be sold at auction with a guide price of £235,000-plus.

Bear Necessity A bear which sparked a Facebook campaign after wandering around Pennsylvania with a bucket on its head has been freed. A group of volunteers approached the black bear and managed to remove the bucket that had become stuck on the animal's head — and they filmed the effort. Facebook page 'Save the Bucket Bear' called on authorities to free the bear which had only been able to feed itself through a small crack in the bucket. A group of people managed to keep the bear down and, after failing to pull the bucket off, used a saw to cut through it. The bear immediately ran free.

De Cotta Law Inheritance tax in Spain is about to change, and people who paid it may be able to reclaim some of the tax This month the European court has decided that Spain has been discriminating against non residents by charging inheritance tax where a resident would be exempt from tax. The decision in Commission v Spain Case C-127/12 states that this discrimination is unlawful. At present most inheritance tax allowances in Spain are regional and only apply when both the deceased and the beneficiaries are officially resident in Spain. In the case of residents the tax rules of that particular region will apply. If either the deceased or the beneficiary is non resident then the State inheritance tax rules apply. Several regions including the Balearics, Valencia and Murcia have virtually no inheritance tax between spouses or between parents and children. Some regions have generous allowances. Andalucía allows a gift to a spouse, child or parent of up to €175,000 tax free. These allowances only apply where the deceased and beneficiaries are residents. If not, the much less generous state rules apply which simply allow a deduction of just under €16,000 from the gift for tax purposes for spouse, children and parents of the deceased. Some non residents may have paid thousands more than residents. The European court decision says this is unlawful but stopped short of ordering Spain to pay compensation to those wrongly charged inheritance tax. However there is an implied right for those who have been wrongly charged to claim this in the Spanish Courts. If you have paid Spanish inheritance tax in respect of a death which occurred in the last four years then you may be able to claim this back if : 1) The amount you paid in tax was more than €4,000 2) You or the person you inherited from was a non-resident of Spain 3) You are related to the deceased through marriage or a parent-child relationship 4) You would have paid less tax if you had been a resident of Spain. In Andalucía this would

apply if the qualifying beneficiary received assets to the value of less than €175,000. For those who are going through the inheritance procedure at the moment it is likely you will still need to pay the tax in Madrid as a nonresident. There remains a six months deadline for the tax to be paid though this can be extended in certain circumstances. It is quite possible the European decision will tempt Spain, and the regions, to recover more inheritance tax from all residents but it is very important to get advice now on whether you may have a claim and how much inheritance tax you will be obliged to pay under the current rules.

Signwriting Blunder A yacht company have been left with the word ‘Penis’ written on their vehicle after a signwriting blunder A yacht company has become a laughing stock after an eagle-eyed joker noticed the doors of its vans slide back to spell the word ‘Penis’. Bosses at Pendennis Shipyard had posh company logos painted on the side of their two Ford Transit Connect vehicles. But the boat-building firm based in Cornwall, failed to realise the lettering for Pendennis is partially obscured when the doors are slid open - leaving just the word 'penis'. :)

David McGuire tweeted, "If that Pendennis van is a deliberate stunt, somebody needs a big lesson in marketing." Another user, Ciaran Clarke, wrote: "Possibly the best van door work I've ever seen, good work Pendennis". While the Twitter account for garment hanger company, Dritek, simply sees the funny side: "Pendennis Superyachts' fleet of vans are proving more eye catching than expected ;)" Bosses at Pendennis have yet to comment on the issue.

The error went unnoticed until joker William Tregidgo spotted staff parked up and posted it on the web where it was retweeted more than 6,000 times. He said: "I saw it and couldn't believe how funny it was. My friend put it on Twitter. "I thought it was a real laugh but I didn't think it would become such a hit." People on Twitter even suggested if the blunder was a publicity attempt.

interesting Facts - Grenada is made up of the islands named Grenada, Carriacou, and Petite Martinique. In an effort to establish order on the island and eliminate the Cuban military presence, U.S. president Ronald Reagan ordered an invasion of Grenada on Oct. 25, 1983, involving over 1,900 U.S. troops and a small military force from Barbados, Dominica, Jamaica, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent. Grenada is sometimes called the Island of Spice, as it exports nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mace, and allspice. It’s the second largest exporter of nutmeg worldwide, after Indonesia, producing 20% of the worldwide market. Being on the southern edge of where hurricanes usually pass through, Grenada has only experienced three hurricanes in the last 50 years.

Anyone Fancy A Banana? A shocked Mum finds eggs from 'world's deadliest spider' in her Tesco bananas! A mum was given the shock of her life when she discovered eggs from the 'world’s deadliest spider’ in her Tesco bananas. Abby Woodgate, 30, thought her newly delivered bananas had mould on them but when she poked the bunch with a toothpick, a cocoon opened, revealing dozens of tropical eggs. She called her local Tesco store, which had delivered the shopping to her home in Colchester, Essex, and was told pest control experts would come to her home. She later discovered the eggs were from the Brazilian wandering spider - which are extremely aggressive and venomous. The mumof-one said: "I couldn't believe it when the little cocoon opened. I thought it was just some mould and I was trying to get it off so I could use the rest of the bunch. "Even when I saw what was in it - it looked just like frog spawn - I still didn't think the worst. "But then it dawned on me and I jumped and threw them in the bin." Mrs Woodgate said: "The pest controllers asked where the eggs were and I told them the bin and they said 'right, we'll take that'. "Then they asked had anything else come into contact with the eggs, and I told them about my

vacuum cleaner, so they said 'we'll have to take that too'. "All they could tell me is they thought they were tropical spider eggs." Spider experts have told her it was unlikely the tropical eggs would hatch because it was not warm enough in the UK and there were no adult spiders with them. If I see one, I've been told it's safe to squash it, as you might do other spiders. Tesco has offered to replace her bin and the cleaner. A spokesman said: "We set ourselves high standards for the food we sell and were concerned to hear of this incident an will investigate”.

Linea Directa What to do if you have been burgled statistics in spain Crime rates in Spain remain among the lowest in the EU according to the latest Interior Ministry crime report. However, since the economic crisis began in 2008, there has been a steep increase in domestic burglaries and theft as a result. In 2012 the number of burglaries in homes rose by 25.4%. The message to expat residents is not to panic. There are some simple precautions to take, as you would back in the UK, such as fitting security grills, installing exterior lights and alarms, being careful about what content is posted on social networks, especially anything to do with trips and holidays away from home. It also helps to take out a quality home insurance policy that will cover your home and its contents should any unfortunate incident occur. when you discover you’ve been burgled As soon as you discover you’ve been burgled, whether it’s a break-in or theft at your home, first call the police. Don’t touch anything until they arrive. A police report will be needed to process your claim. Then secure your home to avoid further damage, board up any broken windows, make a list of damaged or missing belongings, detail the damage to your home resulting from the burglary, taking photographs of damaged windows or door. At this point, you can call the claims department of your home insurance company. We advise you to have your policy on hand when you call. Peace-of-mind with Linea Directa We understand that your peace-of-mind is important, especially in your home. Our claims department will take a full statement of the circumstances of the incident. We will check the insurance coverage with you explaining all the procedures. If emergency repairs are required from locksmiths to glaziers, we will help you swiftly handle your claim and get things back to normal as soon as possible.

All About The Diet This is a specially formulated diet designed to help WOMEN cope with the stress that builds up during the day. I have found that it REALLY works!! BrEakFasT: * 1 Grapefruit * 1 Slice Whole-wheat toast * 1 Cup Skimmed Milk LUNCh * 1 Small Portion Lean Steamed Chicken with Cup of Spinach * 1 Cup Herbal Tea * 1 Penguin Biscuit aFTErNOON TEa * The Rest of the Penguins from the packet * 1 Tub Gino Ginelli Ice Cream with chocolate topping DiNNEr * 4 Bottles of Wine (Red or White) * 2 Loaves of Garlic Bread * 1 Family size supreme pizza * 3 Snickers Bars

What Is A Fart? A fart poem, well why not!!!! A fart it is a pleasant thing, It gives the belly ease, It warms the bed in winter, And suffocates the fleas. A fart can be quiet, A fart can be loud, Some leave a powerful, poisonous cloud A fart can be short, Or a fart can be long, Some farts have been known To sound like a song.... A fart can create A most curious medley, A fart can be harmless, Or silent ,and deadly. A fart might not smell, While others are vile, A fart may pass quickly, Or linger a while..... A fart can occur In a number of places, And leave everyone there, With strange looks on their faces. From wide-open prairie, To small elevators, A fart will find all of Us sooner or later. But farts are all bad, Is simply not truewe must never forget.... Sweet Old Farts like YOU!

LaTE NighT sNaCk * 1 Whole Cheesecake (Eaten directly from the freezer) Here's some advice for you: Doctors proclaim the way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things that you have started. I've looked around my house to find all the things that I've started and hadn't finished. I've just finished off a bottle of vodka, a bottle of chardonnay and bottle of Baileys, a butle of Kehuha, a pockage of Pingeuns, tha 'mainder of botl Prozic an Valum prscriptins, the res of the chesescke, an a bax a cholates. Yu haf no idr who gud I fel!!

Sadly, winter will be here before we know it, but that brings some good news — it means that we can start to enjoy a good old Sunday roast again, without roasting with it! El Pino restaurant in Torrox Park offers that little bit more than a standard Sunday roast. Here you can enjoy a new spitroast carvery menu. El Pino restaurant is the only one we know of in this part of Axarquia that offers a carvery, and it is great value for money. Watch one of three meats (beef, pork or chicken) being carved right in front of you, and afterwards, you can help yourself to six freshlyprepared vegetables, homemade Yorkshire puds, roasted confit potatoes, pork and sage stuffing and potato dish of the day, all served with vegetable or meat gravy and accompanied by all the correct sauces. The new spitroast carvery menu consists of six main course meals, all priced at just 7.95€. To view the full menu, turn to pages 38 & 39. If you are looking to enjoy a two or three course meal, there is also a starter menu and afterwards, you can view the very tempting dessert trolley which is wheeled to your table. El Pino restaurant’s carvery is very popular — especially during the winter months — so reservations are recommended. Call 952 968 106 or 659 778 105, or book your table by email: info@elpinotorrox.com You can also reap the advantages of joining the Sunday Club. Members benefit from an introductory offer with a free bottle of wine when booking a table for four. The team at El Pino look forward to seeing you. See main advert on page 38

It can be used with other breast screening methods for a more complete breast health assessment. well Therm is • For first-line breast health screening in all age groups • Especially useful for younger women with dense breast tissue • Pregnant and breast feeding women • Women with breast implants • Post-breast cancer to monitor progress of treatment or to provide non-invasive, non-radiation regular aftercare checks (special rates apply) • women simply choosing a non-invasive, non-radiation route to monitor their breast health To celebrate Breast Cancer awareness Month and for women to experience thermal imaging at a reduced rate, Well Therm offers

Heather Gail Harmen b.a hons Have you Always wanted to draw and paint? Next year artists will be joining us in the Axarquia from the UK, Belgium, Holland, Scandinavia and the USA. They are coming for Heather Harman's painting holidays, sponsored by International Unison Colour. When she is not hosting these groups the chances are she is guest of honour in various French Pastel Societies — of which she is a member and demonstrates every year — or writing articles on pastel, landscape and portrait painting for the British and US art press. So why with all this success, is Heather still so keen to teach beginners? ‘Because as a selftaught artist, I know what it is like to want to learn and get the right information when I need it,’ she says. ‘I never did, so I learned the hard way by trial and error.’ This is her sixth year of teaching local artists and beginners, and it is a year which will celebrate her artists exhibiting for the first time. Heather is now accepting new artists — and especially beginners — to her weekly courses

Whether you can already draw or need to learn, her success rate is phenomenal. ‘It is my aim to teach my artists how to develop their own creativity in painting,’ she adds. ‘Pastel is my passion, and has been my life.

Fancy A Hash? Do you fancy doing something a bit different and challenging now and then – perhaps something that helps you stay fit and takes you slightly out of your comfort zone? Why not join Axarquia Hash House Harriers? Axarquia Hash House Harriers (AH3) is a social, non-competitive club. Every second Sunday of the month at 12:00 midday we meet at different places throughout Axarquia – mainly in the campo or villages around Velez Malaga. Members take turns acting as ‘hares’ which involves laying a trail of flour. The rest of the hash (the ‘hounds’) follow the trail which takes about two hours and eventually leads back to the start. Hounds can walk, jog or run along the route according to their ability and inclination. To liven things up the hares include some false paths and dead ends. To liven up flagging hounds a beer/soft drinks stop is included along the way and cold drinks are also provided at the end of the hash. After the hash we usually head to a nearby restaurant for a very sociable meal.

Beauty Therapy Complementary Therapy

PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL

Rid yourself of undesirable body hair with Pulsed Light Therapy. Latest generation state-of-the-art technology with in built cooling system (-40) ...minimises discomfort

The hash is open to all ages, abilities and nationalities. All you need is a good pair of trainers, a reasonable level of fitness and a sense of humour. Bottles of cold water are provided at the start to take with you on the ‘run’ and hares are happy to look after valuables for you so there’s no risk of dropping your car keys in a ditch! We make a charge of 4€ per run, which includes water, beer, crisps and soft drinks. In addition to the regular hash we organise other events from time to time such as barbecues and a summer hash camp. The hash is a great way to get out, take some exercise, socialise and see different parts of the beautiful Axarquia. So why not come along, take part and find out if hashing is for you?

Expensive, often ugly retaining walls could be a thing of the past! Do you live in the Campo, on a hill or in the mountains? Do you have or do you think you will have erosion problems? You don’t want an expensive retaining wall that requires permitting? If your answer is yes to any of the above, then please read on!! There is a grass that is used all around the world and once planted it forms a natural defense against erosion or you could say an “underground retaining wall.” The facts Vetiver Grass is unlike any other grass. Vetiver roots grow vertically, reaching up to 4 metres deep. They have a high tensile strength (equivalent to 1.6 mil steel) this makes it an excellent stabilizer for edges and terraces. Vetiver can grow up to 1.5 metres tall. The leaves are long and thin, similar to Lemon Grass, but with an incredible root system that Lemon Grass does not have. Also they can coexist with other plants and fruit trees, etc. as the roots grow straight down. The plants are Roots 4 metres tall sterile so they do not spread where you don’t want them. When plated to form natural barriers, proximity to growing clumps restricts the passage of water while trapping sediments present. The roots hold the slope or ravine – source Wikipedia, see the website for more useful links.

Now some more good news Vetiver grass can now be bought in Spain from VetiverSpain in Sayalonga, just inland from the coast 7 km above Algarrobo. When David and Anna first moved to Spain their house was located on a mountainside that was not usable land. They had their land terraced and then they had bad soil erosion in the first heavy rain so they started researching for something to plant that

Ready for planting had a good root & for sale structure. After extensive research they came upon the Vetiver Grass System. When planted, it rapidly multiplied and their problem was quickly solved. The plants require no special soils or fertilizers and are very simple to plant. Just plant them between 15 – 30cms apart and water for the first couple of months every other day to start them off and just a few months later, you will have a natural Planted August 10th 2014 underground retaining wall! This plant can tolerate extreme conditions, from 550C in South Africa to - 220C in Northern China, it is also very fire tolerant. Vetiver grass is alSame plants 30 days later most indestructible showing pot bound roots by fire!

roots 4 metres tall After a severe burning, the plants will recover in as little as 6 weeks as the roots are still intact. See the website on the “Vetiver Fire Resistance” page. Dave and Anna have been growing Vetiver for about 4 years and now have in excess of 50,000 plants and have just started selling them at just 1€ each. So for an example a row of 30 linear metres will cost between 100 € and 200 Euro depending upon the type and severity of the erosion. It is a superb, cost effective, environmentally

friendly natural way of stopping erosion. On the website there are many useful photos on the “About” page, the “Photo gallery” page and on the “youtube” page there are numerous videos and articles about the grass with numerous links.

Los Romanes Author Selected By HitLitPro A British writer who spends half her year in Los Romanes, is now one of ten carefully selected authors on Hit Lit Pro’s exclusive list – launched this month Hit Lit Pro has contracted the prestigious book promotion company, Candlelit Author Services, to champion its authors with an exciting, yearlong promotional campaign. Jan Sprenger, who writes under the pen name of Rosie Dean, has two romantic comedies available on Amazon and a short story published by Harlequin in their anthology, Truly, Madly, Deeply. Her first book, Millie's Game Plan by Rosie Dean is set in Hampshire, and tells the story of a woman whose life/work balance is so out of whack, even her Spanish mother tries to fix her up with their priest's dozy nephew. Spurred into action, Millie sets about finding Mr Right at local cricket clubs, with some entertaining and alarming results – not least being held hostage by local criminals. Finally, she does discover Mr Right, but only after chasing Mr Wrong. The second, Vicki’s Work of Heart by Rosie Dean, follows Vicki Marchant, humble art teacher and jilted bride, as she seizes her freedom by leaving teaching to paint – in France. It’s her time. Nobody is going to get in the way of her ambition – definitely not a man. Vicki learns two things: some men are difficult to resist, and choosing the right one is not always easy – when faced with a sexy French vet or an aristocratic art critic. She’s in France to paint but can she resist l’amour? For the last eight years, the author has been an active member of the Costa Writing Group, which meets every fortnight in Torrox Costa. In

And Then The Fight Started... My wife sat down on the couch next to me as I was flicking through the channels. She asked, 'What's on TV?' I said, 'Dust.' And then the fight started... My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary. She said, 'I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 200 in about 3 seconds.' I bought her scales. And then the fight started... When I got home last night, my wife demanded that I take her someplace expensive.... so, I took her to a petrol station... And then the fight started.... When our lawn mower broke and wouldn't work, my wife kept hinting to me that I should get it fixed. But, somehow I always had something else to take care of first, the truck, the car, playing golf. Always something more important to me. Finally she thought of a clever way to

make her point. When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors. I watched silently for a short time and then went into the house.I was gone only a minute, and when I came out again I handed her a toothbrush. I said, 'When you're finished cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway.' and then the fight started...

Helping Axarquia Six months' grace to get foreign pensions in order The Spanish Ministry of Finance and Public Administration will grant a six-month period from January 2015 to regularise foreign pensions without imposing any sanctions. The Spanish Tax Administration Service has found that some taxpayers who were resident in Spain have been receiving foreign pensions which were not correctly declared for income tax purposes.

Fellowship Of The King, Nerja A new season of CAMEO gets under way on Wednesday 8th October at 3pm at their regular venue of the Fellowship of The King premises in Pasaje San Miguel, Nerja - opposite the pet shop at the side of Mercadona.

The information provided in this article is not intended to be legal advice, but merely conveys general information related to legal issues.

For the uninitiated CAMEO (which stands for Come And Meet Every One) has grown out of a small group of friends from the Punta Lara area who for several years have met in various homes over the winter months to learn or to improve their painting techniques. They have worked in watercolours, oils, pastels and also sketching with both charcoal and pencil. There have also been sessions on perspective and composition. Last season ended with a short series of Master Classes given by a professional artist from the UK. The group prefers to describe themselves as enthusiastic amateurs rather than experts who meet for fun and friendship rather than to "do art classes", nevertheless some of the members have produced very creditable work. Anyone who enjoys doing some art in the company of others is invited to come along.

To contact Helping Axarquia see main advert below

For more information speak to Mike and Joan Tomlinson on 95 252 3345

This measure will affect resident taxpayers in Spain who are paid a pension from a foreign country, whether they are foreign pensioners with residence in Spain or pensioners of Spanish nationality who are returning migrants.

& t i u Fr Facts Veg elery C

We’ve all been told to eat our vegetables: they’re good for us. But while certain vegetables always seem to get the attention — leafy greens such as broccoli, cabbage and spinach, for example — scientific research shows that some which we tend to write off are actually nutritional all-stars, too. Celery is a case in point.

reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) by up to 7 points! An active compound called phthalides in celery has been proven to boost circulatory health. Raw, whole celery reduces high blood pressure. Celery can combat cancer: Two studies at the University of Illinois show that a powerful flavonoid in celery, called luteolin, inhibits the growth of cancer cells, especially in the pancreas. Another study suggests that the regular intake of celery could significantly delay the formation of breast cancer cells. Freshly chopped celery retains its nutrients much better than if you chop and store it even for a few hours. Steamed celery not only retains its flavour, but also most of its nutrients.

Celery is a great choice if you are watching your weight. One large stalk contains only 10 calories. Celery reduces inflammation. If you are suffering from joint pains, lung infections, asthma or acne, eating more celery will bring muchneeded relief. It helps you calm down. The minerals in celery — especially magnesium and the essential oil in it — soothe the nervous system. If you enjoy a celery-based snack in the evening, you will sleep better.

arTiFiCiaL grass

It regulates the body’s alkaline balance, thus protecting you from problems such as acidity. Celery aids digestion: its high water content, combined with the insoluble fibre in it, makes a great tool for easy passage of stools. However, because celery has diuretic and cleansing properties, those with diarrhoea should avoid eating it. It contains “good” salts. This is not the same thing as table salt — the salt in celery is organic, natural and essential for your health. It cares for your eyes. One large stalk of celery can deliver up to 10 percent of your daily need for vitamin A, a group of nutrients which protect the eyes and prevent age-related degeneration of vision. There is a component in celery called butylphthalide, which gives the vegetable its flavour and scent. However, it also reduces bad cholesterol. A Chicago University research study shows that just two stalks of celery a day can

Benajarafe Costa isn´t a village as such, more a stretch of coastline located 14 kilometres from Málaga between Rincon de la Victoria and Torre del Mar. As you drive from the latter towards Málaga with the sea on your left the difference in terrain is extraordinary. Torre del Mar has numerous chiringuitos and beaches filled with sun beds and then from Almayate on, the beaches are bare except for Spaniards who take their tents and go for the day. Just the beach, some cane and the sea! Then suddenly the seaside resort of Benajarafe changes everything, with its oasis of palm trees and banana plants, beach beds, chiringuitos and even a Bay Watch style lifeguard look-out post! You can find everything on this beach including 2 Petanque Courts and beach buggies which are parked up by the old bus station, now enjoying a new lease of life. This is a beach where you never run out of space to sit and sunbathe and in the early morning the fishermen still take out their boats to fish for the day´s catch. There are bars and restaurants on both sides of the coast road and the 18th century lookout tower, named the Torre Moya or Torre Gordo (Fat Tower) stands silently watching from above, now useless and per-

haps remembering its duty long ago when it warned the townspeople of pirate attacks. Nowadays there are different types of pirates about, professional thieves who will grab your bag before you even notice its gone! So do be careful and keep your car doors locked when stopping at lights. Sadly the 3 date palms that once stood majestically next to the bus station have been gobbled up by the evil red palm weevil, having eaten its way through the date palms in Egypt it is now set to destroy those in Spain and it seems that nothing can be done about it. Only the fan palms seem to remain unaffected as this terrible predator munches its way inland, destroying palm after palm in its path. Although Benajarafe is now all fresh and modern, it has been inhabited since the Palaeolithic era. In fact it is believed that the Greek colony, Mainake, used to be somewhere around this area, although the exact location is still being seached. Archaelogical remains have been discovered next to the Velez river further along the coast at Torre del Mar. Benajarafe became a medieval farmstead after the Moors had settled there and it was they who gave it its current name. Modern day Benajarafe is a good place to visit if you want fun on the beach or simply to enjoy its many bars and restaurants and one of the best bakeries on the coast.

Our children are born with the innate ability to use their intuition. Sadly though, society then teaches it out of them. Whilst we need to teach our children rules and regulations, so we can have a functioning society, we don’t need to teach them to put their needs and desires second to anyone else’s. We can lead by example by showing empathy to others, teaching children intuition, and showing them how to live a conscious life. We can also lead by example in showing kindness and gratitude. These are the traits that we all must have, and need, in order to foster them in our children. It is the traits of hatred, anger and jealousy that we should not be teaching or fostering. Our children look up to each and every one of us as role models. Therefore, we are all responsible for raising children into a conscious environment. If you are in an abusive relationship, get out! If you live in an unsavory environment yet you continue to put up with it, get out! Take a stand for you and for the future generations. Do not allow hatred into your world. Do not live with it. Do not breed it. Do not foster it. Your children are watching you 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Let them see a positive role model.

Buy A Home Spain Buy A Home Spain are on the move . . .

gether with architectural & survey consultancy.

Not only is business on the up and moving forward, but Buy A Home Spain are moving - literally, again! But you won’t have any trouble finding them – they are moving next door!

I asked Angela to explain the two main reasons why sales to Brits are buoyant for her company. The reply was simple: ‘We have witnessed, in recent months, a weakening of the euro against sterling so as prices are at rock bottom, the time to buy is perfect. Another key reason for our increase in sales is the success of the APITS exhibition where we have one of the largest and busiest stands right in the middle of the show next to the ‘hub’ where all the seminars are held.’ I have been advised by visitors to previous shows that after every seminar where Angela sits on the ‘Panel of Experts’ - all those who are interested in buying in Spain immediately flock to the BHS stand to see the properties they are featuring.

The previous occupants, Rent a Motobike, have moved out of Torre del Mar, so BHS are moving into their much bigger offices and taking over the rental of cars, motorbikes and bikes in Torre del Mar from 1st October. So when Austin, Angela, Diana and team return from A Place in the Sun Live exhibition, they will be able to welcome the influx of new buyers at their new offices and wine and dine them at their other new business, Legends Gastrobar, just 200m down the road. The BHS Group really has become a ‘One Stop Shop’ for all - and for buyers, renters and property owners in particular. They now offer a wide range of services including: property sales, long-term & holiday rentals, property maintenance, legal advice & representation, insurance, financial/investment advice & plans, property/pool construction & maintenance, to-

If you are a property owner you are too late to have your property featured at the NEC, but you are not too late to list it with BHS to take advantage of the serious buyers who will be arriving after the show. Should you find yourself in the midlands from 3rd to 5th October, they will be delighted to welcome you to Stand E52. Tony Knight, The Sentinella

Name: Whoopi Elaine Goldberg (real name Caryn Elaine Johnson) Born: November 13, 1955, New York City (although a New York Times article from 1984 cites her year of birth as 1949) Parents: Emma (nÊe Harris), a nurse and teacher, and Robert James Johnson, Jr, a clergyman. Marital status: Goldberg has been married three times — in 1973 to Alvin Martin (divorced in 1979), in 1986 to cinematographer David Claessen (divorced in 1988) and in 1994 to the

actor Lyle Trachtenberg (divorced in 1995). Children: Alexandrea Martin, born 1973 Grandchildren: Amarah Skye (born 1989); Jerzey, (born 1995) and grandson Mason (born 1999.) Goldberg attended Washington Irving High School, but dropped out and worked as a phone sex operator, working from home at night. Her stage name, Whoopi, was taken from a whoopee cushion; she once said "If you get a little gassy, you've got to let it go. So people used to say to me, 'You're like a whoopee cushion.' And that's where the name came from." She became the first African-American woman to host the Academy Awards show in 1994, and the first woman to solo host. On her 46th birthday, Goldberg was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

UK Work Pensions Are Changing

In the 2014 budget, Chancellor George Osbourne proposed some significant changes to work based pensions in the UK, scheduled to take effect from April 2015. There are two main types of work based pension schemes, described very basically as follows: Defined Contribution schemes in which a pot of money is built up through employee and/or employer contributions, and when the holder takes their pension, the size of the pot dictates the level of their pension income. Defined Benefit (or Final Salary) schemes in which the level of pension income is determined by the number of years the holder was an active member of the scheme, and their salary during this time. Many of the planned changes improve the flexibility of defined contribution schemes, and particularly the level of income that can be taken. In contrast, defined benefit schemes are largely unaffected, which may result in members of de-

fined benefit schemes wanting to transfer to defined contribution schemes to access these new benefits. This could represent a significant cost for the Government should those in public sector defined benefit schemes (i.e. Armed Forces, Teachers, Civil Service, Police, NHS and Local Government) decide to transfer. As a consequence, the Government is proposing to introduce legislation to remove the option to transfer for those in public sector schemes, except in very limited circumstances. Members of public sector schemes therefore have a very limited window (likely to be shut for good from April 2015) to review their pension arrangements and see whether they would benefit from a transfer to a defined contribution scheme whilst they still can. If you are a member, or an ex-member, of a public sector pension scheme and would like more information then get in touch with Blacktower Financial Management (see below) for a free no obligation pension review.

It is native to the Mekong delta in south-east Asia, and although it can today be found naturally in Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia, it is thought to have originated from Thailand. The Siamese fighting fish was given its name in Thai, “ikan bettah� which means biting fish It is known for its feisty temperament, displayed towards other males and smaller species of fish. Fighting fish can often display very aggressive behaviour towards any animals that it sees as a threat to them.

The male Siamese fighting fish carefully keeps every egg in his bubble nest, making sure none fall to the bottom, and repairs the nest as needed. The incubation period of the eggs is 24 to 36 hours. Males will occasionally even respond aggressively to their own reflections in a mirror.

The Siamese fighting fish is easily recognised due to the beautiful colours displayed on its body. They have long and elaborately-coloured fins, which are longer on the male than the female. They usually grows to a length of about 6.5cm (2.6in). The Siamese fighting fish is carnivorous, mainly eating insects and brine shrimp and also the larger food particles that are part of the plankton in the water. Due to its small size, bright colours and long, attractive fins, the Siamese fighting fish is preyed on by many other animals, including larger fish, cats, newts, salamanders, birds and humans who catch them to keep in tanks at home. When they mate, Siamese fighting fish spiral round each other. Prior to this, the male will have constructed a bubble nest near the surface of the water. Between 10 and 45 eggs are released and fertilised externally at each embrace. Once the female has released all her eggs, she is chased away from the territory by the male, as it is likely she would eat the eggs.

Nerja 41 Club Welcomes Ex-Tablers From All Over Europe The members of Nerja Ex Round Tablers are delighted to welcome the Cluster of all 41 Clubs on the Iberian Peninsular on 30/31Oct/1 Nov. This is a 3 day event where the clubs from Calpe, Javea, Estepona, Mallorca, Gibraltar, Nerja and the Algarve meet for a long weekend of fun and fellowship. Our club formed a committee to run the event two years ago and have booked 95 rooms at Las Marinas Aparthotel as our host venue. Many will join us from the National Executive of 41 Club in England, including the national vice president Terry Cooper and past international president Alan Reynolds. Nerja 41 Club has members from several countries, Belgium, Austria, Sweden, Denmark as well as England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Inviting our friends from our home 41 Clubs in Northern Europe to join us has boosted the numbers to a magnificent 240. Nerja 41 Club is always looking for former Round Tablers. Past members of the thousands of Round Tables around the world who are living East of Malaga full time or for part of the year are invited to join. Ragnar Sandsten from Sweden has the privilege of chairing Nerja 41 Club for 2014/15 and he will hand over at the AGM next April to Mike Proctor from England. Only 10%

of our 38 members live in Spain full time, and the rest visit for between 1-5 months per year. It is not difficult to understand that continuity is potentially a problem, hence our recent membership drive to try to find more full and parttime members. Our club meets twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Thurs. On the first Thurs we have our ‘Munch Bunch’ lunch where we join our ladies to sample ‘menu del dia’ around different restaurants in our very large catchment area. The 3rdThur is at the Hotel Al-Andaluz, Maro, and on these evenings our ladies often meet for a meal. Summer events such as a barbecues, boules and go-karting have been tried and our chairman hosts the club at his home during his year. We have also enjoyed a trip to see the Spanish Riding School in Jerez, a visit to a bodega, our Ladies Night in January and much more. Recently a large group visited Puerto Banus for last year’s ‘Cluster’ weekend. So, ex Tablers, if you are on our patch during the year (anywhere East of Malaga) please come and visit us. Also, if you are living near us and stay for long or short visits, you could actually join our club. So, my friends, if you would like a good lunch with us and our ladies or an evening 41 Club meeting, we would be delighted to see you. See advert below for contact details

La Vaqueria - Home Of Decorative Arts & Crafts The other day somebody asked me “what do you do at La Vaqueria?” I was lost for words! Where to begin? It would be quicker to list what we don’t do! The actual building, La Vaqueria, is the old village dairy of Benamargosa and when I first saw it thirteen years ago I just knew I would love it to be my art studio, five years later I opened up with one room selling anything that I had painted or decorated myself and giving art classes. eight years on I still do both + lots, lots more in lots more rooms!!! A visit here is an arty and unique experience; right from the start, as you enter there are pieces of recycled art on display, large mosaics and our lovely garden full of interesting sculptures, ecological space and water saving ideas and garden art. As La Vaqueria is not a place that you would just be passing it soon became apparent that visitors would need refreshing! We serve snacks, English breakfasts, light lunches and cake, all home made during all opening hours; in fact our food has become so popular that we now have a take away menu and open on Sundays to serve The Sunday Brunch – a buffet of a minimum of 15 dishes to

choose from with three different sizes/prices to suit the whole family! Our menu is really styled on the traditional English Country Kitchen using as much as we can from our vegetable garden along with fresh local produce. As an artist I am frequently painting in between serving but am very happy to offer newcomers to the area advice on where to buy art material or help with Spanish translation. I also give 2 classes per week on painting, drawing and crafts suitable for all levels but very relaxed and encouraging everyone to “have a go”. In addition to all of this there are monthly mosaic workshops, we have also just started a monthly Yard Sale and this month sees the return of our weekly Friday vegetarian supper evening. So to sum it all up I think we are an art gallery, art, craft and souvenir shop, tourist attraction, café, restaurant, local info office, eco garden, art studio, art school, mosaic school, recycled art centre……Oh and a great place to drop in on part of a rural day out, be it by yourselves or whilst entertaining visitors and guests ….you can see my problem!!! Hope to see you soon, all visitors of all ages very welcome. See main advert on page 96

Film iew gain RevBegin a The latest film from writer-director John Carney (ONCE), BEGIN AGAIN is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his newfound fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan

(Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City. BEGIN AGAIN is produced and financed by Exclusive Media and produced by Anthony Bregman, Tobin Armbrust and Judd Apatow. Star Rating – ***/*****

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of www.AbsoluteAxarquia.com ARIES: March 21-April 20 Everyone has different realties so take care when explaining your creative, intelligent thoughts and inner experiences to others; try not to appear defensive and take care not to have expectations that your ideas will be shared. You need a little cultural stimulation this month and would benefit from travel and visiting art galleries TAURUS: April 21-May 21 Taureans are highly creative and expressive individuals. If some find you conservative it’s because they themselves lack understanding of the experimental and revolutionary ideals that drive you. It’s second nature to you to be involved with humanitarian endeavours and causes that help others. Friendship is important to you and part of your essential journey through life GEMINI: May 22-June 21 Pay attention to being truthful in all aspects this month or you will feel compromised and realities, that you prefer not to be public, will be brought into the spotlight. You seek intimate, one-to-one cooperation but results will differ from your expectations CANCER: June 22-July 22 Your focus is on working, harder than at any time previously in your life, but something is being lost along the way. Perhaps someone at work is not being kind, maybe sidetracking your intent. Carry on bringing service and kindness to those around you or tension and frustration will create health hazards LEO: July 23-August 23 During October, Leos will be filled with a sense of self-awareness. Don’t worry about a lack of discipline but avoid what might be seen as opinionation. Experiment and excel without restraint using the full force of your expressiveness, assertiveness and competitiveness VIRGO: August 24-September 22 Try to think and act with reserve and genuine regard for others, not just those you want to impress. Become conscious of your thoughts and examine your behaviour based on what you know to be right. Listen to others and conflicts and difficulties, especially within the home and family, can be resolved

LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 Put forth your ideas and beliefs but not with such force others feel left out or need to argue. Apply energies to rigorous work agendas and team spirit. Your true power appears when you remember to be a teacher and a listener. Becoming one who understands is the route to leadership SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 Your desire for material objects this month means you need to be careful with money. Try to discern between need and gratification which causes wastefulness, and don`t feel obliged to make unwise, impossible financial decisions. Your worth is unrelated to your possessions and is about how you serve SAGITTARIUS: November 22 - December 21 A lot can be accomplished in the next few months if you focus on your individual gifts, be amusing and work on your vocational identity. Within relationships, you need to bend a little and avoid demands that cannot be met. More independence would help and avoid arguments about your personal thoughts and beliefs CAPRICORN: December 22 - January 20 You need a time for solitude, seclusion and reflection but it’s also important to communicate feelings to someone you trust, an old friend perhaps rather than a family member. Past experiences emerge and you may wish to re-enact them whilst maintaining awareness and efforts to create new behavioural archetypes. Get more sleep! AQUARIUS: January 21 - February 19 Don’t sit back and allow nothing to change, it will albeit slowly. This is your time to think about and set future goals, creating a balance between personal needs and those you love. Lead on Aquarius but do not undermine your vital spirit of love PISCES: February 20 - March 20 Align yourself with love to help identify new protocols, policies, and requirements needed to create a successful and satisfying project with intelligent structures. Come out of isolation to make connections with people and nations and feel the world as one

) : a h a Jokes h A son asked his mother the following question: 'Mum, why are wedding dresses white?' The mother looks at her son and replies: 'Son, this shows your friends and relatives that your bride is pure.' The son thanks his Mum and goes off to double-check this with his father. 'Dad why are wedding dresses white?' The father looks at his son in surprise and says: 'Son, all household appliances come in white.' ------------------------------------------------------------An elderly man was stopped by the police around 2am and was asked where he was going at that time of night. The man replied, "I'm on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late." The officer then asked, "Really? Who's giving that lecture at this time of night?" The man replied, "That would be my wife." ------------------------------------------------------------The Queen is in Glasgow where she bumped into Alex Salmond... HM: “How nice to see you Mr Salmond”. AS: “Nice to see you Ma’am. Now, what are we going to call Scotland when we win Independence? How about calling it a Kingdom, and then I’ll be a King?” HM: “No, we don’t like that idea Mr Salmond”. AS: “Empire, and I'll be Emperor?” HM: “No. I don’t think so Mr Salmond”. AS: “OK, so how about calling it a Principality, and then I’ll be a Prince?” HM: “No, Mr Salmond. May I suggest that we call it a Country?” ------------------------------------------------------------I rear-ended a car a few days ago. I tell you, it was a REALLY bad day! The driver got out of the other car and he was a friggin’ DWARF!! He looked up at me and said "I am NOT happy!" So I said, "Well, which one are you then?"

A hunter walking through the jungle found a huge, dead dinosaur with a pigmy standing beside it. Amazed, he asked, "Did you kill that?" The pigmy said, "Yes." The hunter asked, "How could a little bloke like you kill a huge beast like that?" The pigmy said, "I killed it with my club." The astonished hunter asked, "How big is your club?" The pigmy replied, "There are about two hundred of us." ------------------------------------------------------------A lady is throwing a party for her granddaughter, and had gone all out..... a caterer, band, and a hired clown. Just before the party started, two bums showed up looking for a handout. Feeling sorry for the bums, the woman told them that she would give them a meal if they will help chop some wood for her out back. Gratefully, they headed to the rear of the house. The guests arrived, and all was going well with the children having a wonderful time. But the clown hadn't shown up. After a half and hour, the clown finally called to report that he was stuck in traffic, and would probably not make the party at all. The woman was very disappointed and unsuccessfully tried to entertain the children herself. She happened to look out the window and saw one of the bums doing cartwheels across the lawn. She watched in awe as he swung from tree branches, did mid-air flips, and leaped high in the air. She spoke to the other bum and said, "What your friend is doing is absolutely marvellous. I have never seen such a thing. Do you think your friend would consider repeating this performance for the children at the party? I would pay him €50!" The other bum says, "Well, I dunno. Let me ask him. 'Hey willie! for €50, would you chop off another toe?"

Jokes h a ha :) A photographer for a national magazine was assigned to take pictures of a great forest fire. He was advised that a small plane would be waiting to fly him over the fire. The photographer arrived at the airstrip just an hour before sundown. Sure enough, a small Cessna airplane was waiting. He jumped in with his equipment and shouted, "Let's go!" The tense man sitting in the pilot's seat swung the plane into the wind and soon they were in the air, though flying erratically. "Fly over the north side of the fire," said the photographer, "And make several low-level passes." "Why?" asked the nervous pilot. "Because I'm going to take pictures!" yelled the photographer. "I'm a photographer, and photographers take pictures!" The pilot replied, "You mean you're not the flight instructor?" ------------------------------------------------------------A young man from the city went to visit his farmer uncle. For the first few days, the uncle showed him the usual things - chickens, cows, crops, etc. After three days, however, it was obvious that the nephew was getting bored, and the uncle was running out of things to amuse him with. Finally, the uncle had an idea. "Why don't you grab a gun, take the dogs, and go shooting?" This seemed to cheer the nephew up, and with enthusiasm, off he went, dogs in trail. After a few hours, the nephew returned. "How did you enjoy that?" asked the uncle. "It was great!" exclaimed the nephew. "Got any more dogs?" ------------------------------------------------------------A guy went to a psychiatrist because he was having severe problems with his sex life. The psychiatrist asked him a lot of questions, but didn't seem to be getting a clear picture of the problems. Finally, he asked, "Do you ever watch your girlfriend's face while you're having sex?" "Well, yes, I did once." "Well, how did she look?"

"Oh boy, she looked VERY angry!" At this point the psychiatrist felt that he was really getting somewhere and he said, "Well that's very interesting, we must look into this further. Now tell me, you say that you have only seen your girlfriend's face once during sex; that seems somewhat unusual. How did it occur that you saw her face that time?" "She was watching us through the window." ------------------------------------------------------------Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, "My friend is dead! What can I do?". The operator says "Calm down. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says "OK, now what?"

We spent many hours reading, laughing and enjoyng your comments on what you enjoy most about our little mag The Sentinella. Here are a selection and the all important winner!! Tricia Gabbitas who wins 100€!!!!

What I love most about the Sentinella are the wonderful jokes, they're simply the best. Marcel Van den Heuvel Nerja

month I'm waiting anxiously I like t he quiz sect ions Every for the Sentinella to arrive in and t he jokes t he most Nerja. Many congrats with your 10 years already and hoping many more Kevin Taylor years will follow. Anon

What I like most about The Sentinella, well it's not easy as there are lots of things I like. Also the size is so convenient. As a bit of a nerd for figures I love the top tens and factual items like "Countries of the World", "Useless Facts" and "Fruit and Veg facts" etc. I also love to do puzzles, brain-teasers, sudoku and crosswords but I think the best thing is probably the jokes. I can only give an example from this months mag. It was the page entitled Dr. Who. It had me and the wife cackling with laughter with my favourite being the last one. "Patient has 2 teenage children but no other abnormalities" PricelessKeep up the good work.Mark Overton Torrox Pueblo Hi, I would have to say that apart from some great articles, the thing I like most about the Sentinella Magazine is that you honour the memory of Colin Checkley the founder of the magazine, every month! I guess he would have been very impressed how much the magazine has grown since it began. I did not know the man but what an inspiration he must have been. Jean Wainwright, Competa.
