Editor: Kami Knight

Big news this month! I have now officially hung up my editor’s hat and closed the door on The Sentinella – this amazing magazine and business, which has served me and other loved ones for the last thirteen years.

Sales: 664 210 468 / 664 689 138

But fear not… the magazine will continue to thrive under the ownership of my sister, Kami, and Tony will continue to do his job as usual too, after all they have been running the business for the last eleven years anyway. As for me, I am moving onto new ventures… Living in the USA now, miles away from the Axarquia region of Spain, it made sense for me to let go of The Sentinella magazine so I can focus my energy 100 per cent on my editing and publishing business, plus writing my books, among other things. The time has finally come for me to soar courageously into the future into new horizons that resonate greater and deeper who I have become, and who I am continually becoming. As I write this – my last editorial – I am feeling incredibly grateful for the years I spent working on, building, and growing The Sentinella magazine. I am especially thankful to my parents, who helped me to get the magazine off the ground in the first place and who have always given me the courage and confidence to pursue my biggest dreams; to Colin Checkley, whose magazine it was to begin with before he passed away suddenly at the age of 44; to Kami and Tony for running the magazine so well in the last 11 years; and to all the loyal clients and readers, without which there would be no magazine: and to God, for setting everything up so perfectly, for loving no matter what, and for allowing

Strange News karma to play out as it had to in order for everyone involved to evolve, to learn, to grow, and ultimately, to remember that everything always comes back to Love. I am now sizzling with possibility to begin moving forward in a bigger, bolder way with my true, heartfelt goals, dreams, and passions. And I know without a doubt that The Sentinella magazine will continue to flourish and grow wings as it continues its journey to lighting up hearts and souls with its funny content. So now Kami, my hat is off and it’s over to you… with lots of Love...

Just kidding An understandably confused driver has filmed the bizarre moment he tailed another car driven by a boy in Whitianga, New Zealand, and loaded it to YouTube. The local hilariously narrates the video Attenborough-style (but with extra swearing) and he can’t hide his disbelief as he realises who is driving the Ford Falcon. He says: ‘There is an eight-year-old driving this car, and it’s packed with kids, mate. This is insane. Look at him, the kid driving can only just see over the steering wheel.’ That’s abnormal enough, but when he zooms in on the vehicle, things really take a turn for the weird. He adds: ‘And a goat. You’re f***ing kidding me! What the f**k is going on? Shortly after, the Falcon pulled up and the boy jumped out. A man, possibly the boy’s dad, climbed out of the back and with unsettling calmness, explains that everything was fine and the boy was ‘training’. What the goat was doing in the back will likely remain a mystery. Monkey diet A monkey who has been given the nickname ‘Uncle Fatty’ is finally getting help for his obesity. The 33lb long-tailed macaque will go to boot camp after gorging on food from tourists including melons, milkshakes, sweetcorn and noodles by visitors to a floating water market in Bangkok, Thailand. He was taken in by primate conservation group Monkey Lovers who confirmed that he was not sick, just fat. They now aim to get him to half his current weight and will make him run and swing around with other animals to help him lose weight. Organiser Kawinoat MongKholtechaphat said: ‘Uncle has got fat because he has just been eating everything that people give to him.’

Summer Opening: Lunch & Dinner Tuesday to Saturday. Sunday Lunch only and closed Monday. Tapas, light bites and a la carte always available Please let us know you are coming as it helps planning!

Jack was watching his mum breastfeeding his new baby sister. After a while he asked: “Mummy why have you got two? Is one for hot and one for cold milk?”

Tammy was with her mum when they met an elderly rather wrinkled woman her mum knew. Tammy looked at the elderly woman a while before asking her: “Why doesn’t your skin fit your face?” Mark was engrossed in a young couple who were hugging and kissing in a restaurant. Without taking his eyes off them he asked his dad: “Why is he whispering in her mouth?”

Melanie asked her granny how old she was. Granny replied she was so old she couldn’t remember any more. Melanie said: “If you don’t remember you should look in the back of your knickers. Mine say five to six.” Susan was drinking juice when she got the hic-

Jodie was busy looking through her mum’s childhood photographs when she called out: “Mummy, if these pictures are from when you were a little girl, where are all the dinosaurs?” Becky asked her mum, “Can I go outside and play with the boys?” her mother replied: “No you can’t play with the boys, they’re too rough.” The little girl thought about it for a moment and said. “If I can find a smooth one, can I play with him?”

De Cotta Law Post Brexit - not all doom and gloom The legal sector in the UK is as concerned as many businesses about the impact of Brexit. As the legal services sector makes £25.7 billion in contributions to the UK economy, it is not surprising that law firms wish to continue to provide services into and for the European Union. However not all is doom and gloom. One example of this is that the Law Society of England and Wales is already in talks with all 27 European countries to seek mutual recognition, allowing Spanish and other lawyers to work in the UK and continuing to allow English solicitors to practise in Spain. Another very important area is the right to have a British or other European order directly enforced and recognised in Spain. As there are three legal systems within the UK – the legal framework consists of the law of England & Wales, the law of Scotland and the law of Northern Ireland – courts in each of these jurisdictions will currently seek registration or execution in Spain of a European Enforcement Order. The good news is that a relatively recent Decreto... passed in Spain allows anyone from any country, whether inside or outside the European Union, to seek registration and enforcement of a judgement from their own country in Spanish courts and registries. Whilst some judgements may need to be recognised firstly by the Spanish court in cases where it is necessary to seek a charge over property, this can be done directly at the Land Registry using the new regulation. This right could be particularly important where a debtor has property which he could seek to dispose of before payment of his debts. At present Family orders made in any court in

Europe court can be directly enforced in Spain. This means if a parent refuses contact that has been granted by a court in say England or Holland you can go directly to the police or Guardia Civil with the order translated and legalised and they will assist to ensure the terms of the visits are abided by. Under the new regulation it may be necessary to firstly have the judgement registered in the local court. However the right is protected and although there may be additional legal steps required the most important thing is that Spain will recognise such a judgement. Sandra Wrightson Partner at De Cotta Law For more information on Family Law and enforcement of foreign judgements, contact us on or speak to us on 952 527014.

Centro Dharma - Now Open In Trapiche What are complementary therapies & their benefits? Complementary therapies are used in place of, or in addition to conventional medical treatments. They encompass a broad range of disciplines, aiming to treat the physical & emotional wellbeing of the client, by using therapies such as massage, energy healing, & acupuncture Your GP may prescribe pain killers for nerve or joint pain, where as we at Centro Dharma take a different approach, with a series of treatments we aim to release the pressure on the nerves and joints, with gentle manipulation, so you no longer suffer the pain, and are no longer reliant on pharmaceutical drugs, which only dull the pain and obscure the underlying problem, as well as damaging your internal organs in the process. At Centro Dharma we use ancient Chinese methods, like acupressure & acupuncture to deal with a variety of health issues, this works by revitalising our own energetic system, which then in turn enables us to heal ourselves. Energy healing is a simple and relaxing way to defragment your mind. Most of us have a mil-

lion thoughts racing through our minds on a daily basis, most of which no longer serve us. Energy healing such as “Reconnective Healing”, allows us to find an inner peace, so we can actually focus on what is important, and simply clear your mind of negative thought patterns. Some three thousand chemical changes take place instantaneously, simply by changing a negative thought to a happy thought, or vice versa. Imagine that throughout the course of one day! We are what we eat, so clearly nutrition plays a huge role in our day-to-day healthcare. The investment that we make in our diet today will prevent future health issues from arising. The main reason that the most of us are feeling lethargic is we eat far too much processed (dead) food. We have written an easy to follow recipe book for those of you who would like to make a change in the right direction. “Crude Food” is available at Centro Dharma & contains nutritional info regarding; fats, sugars, gluten & an alkalizing diet.

Oh Live Life! Oh the Spanish people really know how to live life to the full….! Don’t you wish you were a native? Well now you can be with our tried and tested ‘how to be Spanish tips’ If you’re an old man….buy a herd of goats and spend your afternoons guiding them throughout the mountains, complete with a little black dog. Sleep for no longer than 30 minutes during siesta time (2-5pm) If you are a man drink anis and brandy for breakfast to harden you up for facing the day ahead. If you are a woman clean your house immaculately every morning. Don’t miss any of that dust! Scoff churros for breakfast, or pan con oil and tomatoes if you don’t have a sweet tooth.

Don’t just go to the beach with your towel and sun cream – instead cart down barbecue, cool box, awnings, his and her deckchairs, food to feed 5,000 and whatever else you think you may find a use for. If you’re going to the beach you may as well do it properly! Talk a lot – at the supermarket checkout, at the doctors and any other place where waiting is involved. If you’re gonna wait then there’s no need to do it in silence. Talk fast, even when talking to foreigners (this only works if you speak Spanish fluently) Dress to the nines on Sundays, with colour coded clothes. If you only look nice one day a week Sunday’s the day to do it. Hit other cars when reverse parking, just to check that they have left their hand brakes on. And if they haven’t, then ooops!

Random Jokes :) So I am at the gas station this afternoon, and it is really hot out. I get two six packs of ice cold beer and take it out to my car. At the next pump over, there is this gorgeous red head putting gas into her car. She is wearing short shorts and a white low-neck shirt that is pretty loose. She is sweating so much that it is clinging to her skin--and she definitely has some curves going! I set my beer in the car and get in. She taps on my window, and she is leaning over so much that her firm breasts are about to pop out of her low-neck shirt. She says to me, "It is really hot outside. How would you like to trade sex for some beer?" I thought about it for a moment and I said, "Maybe. What kind of beer do you have?" ------------------------------------------------------------Lisa has 750 friends on Facebook. A week later she adds 150 more to her friends list. What does she have? Huge tits. ------------------------------------------------------------To the guy who ripped off my stash of magic mushrooms, ecstacy, pot and nitrous oxide.

Interesting Facts... Although founded by freed American and Caribbean slaves, Liberia is mostly inhabited by indigenous Africans, with the slaves' descendants comprising 5% of the population. ‘Liberia’ is actually Latin and translates to ‘Land of the Free’ and the capital city is named after US President James Monroe. Around 250,000 people were killed in Liberia's civil war and many thousands more fled the fighting. Nelson Mandela was born in Liberia. The country is literally a bird-haven. Liberia has 700 bird species which include a bird that is a wee bit larger than a honey bee - the bee warbler. Liberia holds the record of the longest stable rule by a single political party - from 1877 to 1980, by the quaintly named True Whig Party. After Haiti, Liberia is the world’s second Black Republic.

That’s because she changes it more often.” Oliver Hereford “If women didn’t exist, all the money in the world would have no meaning.” Aristotle Onassis “Women. Can’t live with them, can’t bury them in the back garden without the neighbours seeing.” Sean Williamson “If a woman insists on being called Ms ask her if it stands for miserable.” Russell Bell

Costa Animal Society (CAS) On a more serious note, don't leave pets in cars!

Thank you! It’s just occurred to me that we do not often enough say thank you to our media sponsors. Whatever publication you are reading now, they have generously devoted precious space to the Costa Animal Society (CAS) in most cases for many, many years. Without their generosity we could not be nearly as successful as we are in re-homing abused and abandoned animals. If you have a spare moment please send them a message mentioning how much you appreciate their support for animal charities and/or like/share their Facebook pages. Gracias para todos! What a nice message, thank you CAS!

With the arrival of summer, the Costa Animal Society (CAS) is reminding dog owners to never leave their pets locked in the car. Police officers can and will break in to rescue the animals and will prosecute the owner. In Torre del Mar police broke into a car parked in the town’s Plaza de la Paz to rescue six dogs suffering from dehydration. Passers-by raised the alert after the car had been standing in the sunshine for five hours. When the owner finally appeared two hours later, he was told the dogs, which were unregistered, had been taken to a welfare centre. And on a very hot day in the UK a couple of summers ago, a Nottingham police dog handler left two German shepherds in his parked car where the temperature quickly rose to almost 50 degrees. Both dogs died within 20 minutes and the officer was prosecuted.

Axarquia Solicitors - Law Office NOW YOU CAN CLAIM BACK THE PLUSVALIA TAX News about the Plusvalia Tax charged by Municipal Town Halls has been flooding the newspapers and the television. According to the Spanish Constitutional Court judgment on 16th February 2017 the Plusvalia Tax that has been charged on real estate transfers where no enrichment of assets has been achieved, is considered to be unconstitutional, as it cannot be justified that it concurs with its purpose when there is no real increase in the value of the land. Below we itemise the basic points relating to this Municipal Tax: What is Plusvalia and how is it calculated? It is a tax based on the increase in the value of urban land. It is a Local Council Tax and is calculated using the cadastral value, which appears on the IBI (rates) receipt. Even if you own an apartment in a block where you have no land, you would be liable to pay proportionally for your share of the land on which the whole block or urbanization is built. The calculation for this tax is based on two elements. The first corresponds to the increase in the value of the land at the time of sale or at the date of death. The second element that is implemented is the approved tax rate in each council, this varies in each municipality. Who is liable to pay this tax? The responsibility for payment can fall on an

individual or a legal entity any time real estate changes hands. In the case of an inheritance, the heir or heirs would be liable to pay it, whereas in the case of a sale, the vendor/s would be obliged to pay. Why is it considered to be unconstitutional to pay Plusvalia on every real estate transfer? Due to the economic crisis, many property exchanges have transpired where the real value at the time of the transfer is actually lower than the value was when it was acquired. Therefore, there is a good chance that a claim for reimbursement would be successful as no financial benefit has been achieved in the operation due to the fact that the value of the land in reality has not increased. This is the fundamental point on which the Constitutional Court based its decision, under article 31.1 of the Spanish Constitution. When and how to claim back the Plusvalia Tax paid? If the Plusvalia Tax was paid and it is less than four years since the date of payment, you can demand that the Local Council review the amount paid and request a refund. In all likelihood the Local Council will refuse the request, which would be the end of the administrative route, so you would then need to appeal to the Administrative and Economic Municipal Tribunal, thereby initiating the legal process which should result in a more positive resolution under the Constitutional Court’s recent ruling.

Are You Afraid Of The Dentist? Conscious sedation is now available on The Costa Del Sol at GRUPO DENTAL CLINICS This innovative technique is the solution for people in Malaga who become anxious about visiting the dentist. It consists of administering a relaxant so the patient is calm and relaxed, but is in an optimum state of consciousness.

who, for different reasons – such as mental disability, for example – find it difficult to co-operate.

How did the idea of using this type of anaesthesia come about? Firstly I should say that conscious sedation is not really a form of anaesthesia – it is a form of sedation which gives a sense of wellbeing, but we also have to administer the local anaesthetic which we normally use in dental treatment. How is the sedation carried out? Does it take long for the analgesic effect to wear off? No, and that is a great advantage. The effects disappear completely between 15 and 30 minutes after the procedure (depending on the length of time the patient is sedated), so that we can administer it for simple procedures and afterwards, the patient can carry on with their planned activities for the day as usual. What does the patient feel during the treatment? They are in a state of total relaxation. Nobody loses consciousness for a single moment with this sedation. It is not a general anaesthetic: the patient is aware of everything that is going on around them, but they just feel drowsier than normal. Even so, none of their vital functions is altered, so they can follow our instructions without feeling any anxiety whatsoever. What type of patients tend to use conscious sedation, and for what type of treatments? Principally nervous people who are afraid or have simply had bad experiences in the past. However, we do also have patients who need prolonged treatments, and they may prefer them all to be done at the same time, even if it takes several hours. In the case of multiple implants – one of our best-known treatments and one in which we specialise – conscious sedation can be a great help for these patients. Our experience with hundreds of patients in this field tells us that people want to reconstruct their teeth in a single session if possible. Another ideal profile is a patient who needs more aggressive surgery to treat their problems. Conscious sedation also helps us with people

An eighteenth-century German named Matthew Birchinger, known as "the little man of Nuremberg," played four musical instruments including the bagpipes, was an expert calligrapher, and was the most famous stage magician of his day.

Food As Medicine Welcome to The Natural Life Foundation's Food As Medicine section. Each month we will be featuring a different fresh food. We'll also be suggesting how you can use them in your diet to address common ailments that affect us all from time to time. No 5. Dates ... A Brief History Dates are the energy-dense fruit of the date palm, an enormous and ancient tree with a crowning top reminiscent of the coconut palm. Known as the "tree of life", the date palm tree is the national symbol of both Saudi Arabia and Israel. The word “date” has its origins from the Greek word daktylos, meaning finger or toe, describing the resemblance between the oblong fruit and human digits. There are over twenty varieties and this fruit has provided an excellent food source for the inhabitants of the Middle East and Northern Africa for more than 7000 years. The Food Considered an ancient health tonic, dates are high in quality sugars and a versatile addition to the sweet section of your kitchen. Unique in texture and very Moorish (sorry!), a medical study recently described dates as "the ideal food". They are a delicious and healthy boost to your daily diet. The Medicine Although different varieties contain different compositions, dates are rich good fats, fibre and vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12 plus vitamin K, and also provides minerals; calcium, zinc, iron, copper, magnesium, manganese, potassium, phosphorous and sulphur. Dates can also be used in the treatment of: High blood pressure - Bone health Intestinal disorders - Weight Gain Macular degeneration - Constipation Diarrhoea - Allergies The Side Effects Boosts energy immediately Boosts heart health Reduces blood pressure Reduces risk of stroke Reduces risk of labour complications Boosts brain health Increase sexual stamina Boosts nervous system health Reduce the risk of abdominal cancer Did you Know? Dates are safe for diabetics. Even though they contain 80% sugars, they will not adversely af-

fect your blood sugar levels. Between medjool and halawy, the two popular varieties of soft dates, halawy comes out tops as a health food. Date palm seeds can go dormant for decades until the right light and water conditions are just right. Date seed, a byproduct of the date fruit industry are turned into animal food and non-caffeinated coffee. The antioxidant content in date seed oil is comparable with olive oil A date palm is also featured on the ten-shekel coin of the new Israeli Shekel. And finally… Valentines Aphrodizzy 5-Minute Energy Balls Recipe Zap a cup of almonds, add a cup of dates, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cardamom (optional) and a heaped tablespoon of raw cacao powder. Zap again and caress into 10 little balls or two big ones! Visit our website to learn more about using Food As Medicine. See main advert below

Monthly Baking Blog By Susan Jane Baking for Dietary Needs Diabetics & Celiacs Baking for specific dietary needs is becoming increasingly important. I’m sure we all know somebody who is unfortunate enough to be a diabetic or celiac, so it is important to be aware of what these people can and cannot eat and this applies to baking too. Baking for diabetics:- For those who do not have the ability to digest sugar due to insufficient insulin production in the body. There are many sugar substitutes on the market today, but I have found when baking a diabetic cake, that Xylitol is an excellent sugar substitute and is easily available from health food shops here in Spain. With exactly the same visual properties as granulated sugar Xylitol can be used in any cake recipe, replacing equal quantities of sugar for equal quantities of Xylitol. It behaves in much the same way as sugar producing a cake that has a light texture and soft crumb, with the same sweetness and no bitter after taste as with some substitutes. Baking for Celaics:- For those who have difficulty digesting gluten in their diets. Baking for a celiac can be tricky, as gluten is found in wheat flour the principal ingredient in cake making. It can also be found in smaller quantities in various jams, preserves and sauces, so do be careful. Experimenting with various wheat flour alternatives you can use rice flour, semolina or even cornflour, which all produce delicious results. Rather than offer various recipes using wheat flour or sugar substitutes I decided to tempt you with a recipe that is suitable for both celiac and diabetics. It is easy to make, delicious and bound to impress any friends or family, it makes a perfect ending to a Summer BBQ or lunch.

Fresh Fruit Pavlova

For the meringue 4 egg whites 250g Xylitol 1 tsp white wine vinegar 1 tsp cornflour 1 tsp vanilla extract For the filling 500g strawberries or any other available fresh fruit of your choice

350ml double cream Method 1. Heat oven to 150C/130C fan/gas 2. Using a pencil, mark out the circumference of an 8� cake tin x 3 on baking parchment. 3. Whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks, then whisk in the Xylitol, 1 tbsp at a time, until the meringue looks glossy. Whisk in the vinegar, cornflour and vanilla. 4. Spread the meringue inside each of the 3 circles, creating a small crater by making the sides a little higher than the middle. Bake for 1 hr, then turn off the heat and let the Pavlova cool completely inside the oven. 5. Clean and chop your choice of fresh fruit. 6. Whip the cream and spread it over the meringue. 7. Once the meringue rounds are completely cool spread a third of the whipped cream over the first meringue. Then place your choice of fresh fruit on to the cream. 8. Place the second meringue round on top of the fruit and repeat the above step . 9. Repeat the above step with the third meringue. Place on a serving plate and enjoy.

Fathers Day Fathers' Day was created in the United States in the early 20th century to complement Mother's Day in celebrating fatherhood and male parenting. Most countries celebrate Fathers' Day on the third Sunday of June, although some countries celebrate it on other days... Most people agree that the celebration of Fathers’ Day began in the United States. Today, the holiday is recognized in 52 countries. The idea for creating a day for children to honour their fathers began in Spokane, Washington. A woman by the name of Sonora Smart Dodd thought of the idea for Father’s Day while listening to a Mother’s Day sermon in 1909. The following year, Dodd began the tradition of wearing a red rose to signify a living father and a white rose to honour a deceased one. She wanted to honour her father who had raised his children while being a single parent.

This holiday honours men that have had a paternal influence in someone’s life….fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles. In 1926, a National Father’s Day Committee was formed in New York City. Father’s Day was recognized by a Joint Resolution of Congress in 1956. In 1972, President Richard Nixon established a permanent national observance of Father’s Day to be held on the third Sunday of June. It is celebrated on the third Sunday of June in many countries, including the UK & United States. Fathers’ Day is not as big a retail bonanza as Mothers’ Day, especially with the flower industry.

Sonora’s father was born in June, so that is why she selected June to be the month when the holiday would occur.

Kinesiology Taping: Magic Tape Kinesiology taping is used on a wide variety of people and problems. As a Sports and Remedial therapist I employ the use of kinesiology taping in situations ranging from injuries at professional sports levels to the average retiree who has hurt his back cleaning the pool! This magic tape has been proven to: Reduce swelling and edema Enhance muscle performance Delay muscle fatigue Support joint stability Reduce muscle and joint pain Speed up recovery. Kinesiology tape is a thin, stretch, elastic cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive. We mainly associate this kind of strapping with professional athletes but it has shown to benefit many injuries and chronic (long term) muscle problems that all ages and types suffer from. The tape can be applied in hundreds of ways, depending on what the soft tissue requires and has been known to reduce pain and inflammation.

the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints. In the past when we have injury normal braces, tubi grips and bandages support the injured area, but they can cause muscle wastage, for example, with a back problem we tend to wear the whole back brace but this doesn´t only support the back, it takes over from the abdominals aswell, so when we finally take the brace away then the abdominal muscles are weaker. The tape is only applied to the specific area, for example with a back injury, the abdominals still have to function as normal. Kinesiology taping is used in conjunction with many other treatments and highly successful in the healing process. It really is magic tape!

The taping technique is designed to help with

New Retreat - Detox, Relax, Slimming Nowadays it seems to be becoming more and more fashionable to be able to detox (get rid of toxins) and to relax. It is even better if you can also get rid of a few superfluous pounds. Perhaps detoxing is not only a fashion phenomenon, though, but is a ‘must’ in our increasingly fast-paced and environmentally influenced world if one wants to become healthy and stay healthy into old age. Our Grandparents lived well into their 90’s without such a thing as ‘detoxing’ – surviving poverty, hunger and a wartime environment, but back then, there was much less pollution around. From 18th - 21st July there is a beautiful retreat in Rincón de la Victoria, where there are still some places available and in November there are two dates – one on the 14th - 17th and one on the 28th - 1st December when we will have a detox, relaxation and weight loss programme in the beautiful yoga centre (formerly a luxury hotel), the ‘Centro Santillán’. It is a short programme of 4 days and 3 nights to learn to deal more consciously with food and your own body. There will be one hour of yoga daily with a renowned yoga teacher, and a ‘walking and breathing’ session. Baths will also be offered in the bañera bathtub in order to de-acidify the body. Freshly prepared smoothies and various teas will also be available to help detoxify. It is clear, of course, that during a short stay you won’t lose many kilos of weight, but you should lose a few pounds – we want to help our attendees and give them a different perspective. As a follow-up, we offer cooking meetings, at

which we give attendees background information and suggestions for a healthier diet. For example, in the case of various diseases, it is possible to provide relief through nutrition. The right diet and curative fasting can, for example, help with osteoarthritis. Excess weight and a fat-rich diet harm the joints. Low-fat and vitamin-rich nutrition has a positive effect, therefore a long-term dietary change can have a beneficial effect on the course of osteoarthritis, whilst other diets can adversely affect the course of the disease, causing increased pain and leading to increased use of painkillers. If you suffer from osteoarthritis, you should avoid saturated fat, cheese, coffee, alcohol, hydrogenated fats and too much meat. The diet also has a favourable influence on arthrosis: calcium-rich foods, lean and low-fat dairy products, unsaturated fats such as olive oil, natural rice and other high-fibre foods and cold water fish all help. Garlic, onions and leeks have also been shown to have a cartilage protecting effect.

Angara Contortion, a group of four women performing incredible feats with the human body, won over the judges and the crowd and gained four yeses from Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon. Speaking afterwards, the group said it had been a “dream” to perform on such a show. However, it seems they have already been used to the stage, having performed alongside hugely famous dance troupe Cirque du Soleil. They were seen in the show Kurios, one of the many shows produced by Cirque. In an interview on the group’s Facebook page, Imina Tsydendambaeva revealed she has been working with them for seven years. They have even performed on James Corden’s The Late, Late Show in the US. Responding, a Britain’s Got Talent spokesperson said: “Anyone can apply, whether pro or amateur.”

According to The Sun, the duo recreated scenes of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet on their big day, with Tom standing on a balcony in front of guests as he professed his love to his beau. The publication claims the sports champion sang "Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou, Romeo?" before vowing to be with the American Oscar winning screenwriter. The couple got engaged 19 months ago.

Only 50 pals and relatives attended the gorgeous five-star resort, with Lance’s family reported to have flown in from America and stayed at the 58-room hotel, where rates begin at £200 a night.

Pepper dies James Bond star Clifton James, who played Sheriff JW Pepper in two Bond films, has died from diabetes complications aged 96. The film legend first starred alongside Roger Moore in the film Live and Let Die in1973. He made such an impact alongside Bond that he was asked to return for the next movie, The Man with the Golden Gun, in 1974. Clifton appeared as a disagreeable American tourist in Thailand, who famously gets pushed into the water by a baby elephant. His daughter, Lynn, said about her father's death: "He was the most outgoing person, beloved by everybody. "I don't think the man had an enemy. We were incredibly blessed to have had him in our lives."

Smart Answers! No one likes a smart alec! A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at a branch of Sainsbury's, but she couldn't find one big enough for her family. She asked a passing assistant, "Do these turkeys get any bigger?" The assistant replied, "I'm afraid not, they're dead." It was mealtime during a flight on a British Airways plane: "Would you like dinner?" the flight attendant asked the man seated in the front row. "What are my choices?" the man asked. "Yes or no," she replied.

A lorry driver was driving along on a country road. A sign came up that read "Low Bridge Ahead." Before he realised it, the bridge was directly ahead and he got stuck under it. Cars are backed up for miles. Finally, a police car comes up. The policeman got out of his car and walked to the lorry's cab and said to the driver, "Got stuck, eh?" The lorry driver said, "No, I was delivering this bridge and ran out of petrol!"

The policeman got out of his car and the boy racer he stopped for speeding, rolled down his window. "I've been waiting for you all day," the bobby said. The kid replied, "Yes, well I got here as fast as I could."

& t i u Fr Facts Veg Leeks Leeks – the symbol of Wales – are a much underrated vegetable, containing many hidden benefits. They are closely related to onions, garlic, shallots and scallions. With a milder flavour and larger size, they work well added to everything from salads to soups, where they add beneficial fibre and bulk along with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant polyphenols It's thought that much of their therapeutic effect comes from sulphur-containing compounds, such as allicin. This is not only anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal, but research has revealed that as allicin digests in your body, it produces sulfenic acid, a compound that neutralises dangerous free radicals faster than any other known compound. Leeks also contain kaempferol, a natural flavonol that's also found in broccoli, kale, and cabbage. Kaempferol is impressive in its broad yet powerful potential to boost human health. Research has linked it not only to a lower risk of cancer, but also a lower risk of numerous chronic diseases. Numerous pre-clinical studies have shown that kaempferol and some glycosides of kaempferol have a wide range of pharmacological activities, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, anticancer, cardioprotective, neuroprotective, anti-osteoporotic, antidiabetic, estrogenic/antiestrogenic, anxiolytic, analgesic, and antiallergic activities. Kaempferol – and by association, leek –, is also known to protect blood vessel linings from damage, possibly by increasing production of nitric oxide (NO), which helps blood vessels to dilate and relax.

Consuming large amounts of allium vegetables, including leeks, has also been shown to reduce the risk of gastric cancer significantly as well as potentially, colorectal cancer. The protective effect appears to be related to the presence of organosulphur compounds and mainly allyl derivatives, which inhibit carcinogenesis in the forestomach, oesophagus, colon, mammary gland and lung of experimental animals. Leeks contain notable quantities of vitamins A and K, along with healthy amounts of folic acid, niacin, riboflavin, magnesium, and thiamin. Adequate intake of leeks during pregnancy may help prevent neural tube defects in newborns. B vitamins in leeks, in particular, may support heart health by keeping levels of homocysteine in balance (elevated levels of homocysteine are associated with heart disease, blood clots, and stroke). Leeks also provide a concentrated source of antioxidants, even when compared to other antioxidant-rich foods. For instance, leeks have a total polyphenol content (TPC) of 33 milligrams per 100 grams of fresh edible portion. Studies have also shown that given their substantial polyphenol content – including their notable amounts of kaempferol – leeks are expected to overlap with garlic and onions in terms of support for many health problems related to oxidative stress and chronic low-level inflammation.

People Who Come And Go More about those legal houses that suddenly seem to be illegal again! At the end of last year I wrote about the infamous DAFO certificate (Declaración de Asimilado a Fuera de Ordenación), this being a type of categorisation of houses on rural land that don’t meet current building regulations. This certificate in theory is a great one to have – if your house is in the countryside, on rural land, and it does not have a building licence, an end of works certificate and a licence of first occupation, even if it is fully registered on the Property or Land Registry, then this certificate, once obtained, makes it as legal as it is ever going to possibly be, according to current law in Andalusia. Most properties, as long as they are on unprotected land and meet certain critical criteria, can, in theory, obtain this certificate. Recently, my clients, European buyers who have read all the scary reports about illegal houses here, ask me a simple question: If most of the country houses fall outside the current law, why don’t they all have DAFO’s? A good question, and one that is easy to answer.

Firstly, although the new legislation was introduced as long ago as 2012, it has not been put into practice, mainly due to the fact that neither the Notary nor the Land Registry requires it. So properties can still be bought and sold without it. Secondly, it is the often high cost that is putting off the vendors from requesting the certification. An architectural report is required, a new modern septic tank needs to be installed, and a pretty hefty town hall fee needs to be paid (fees vary). And not every vendor has the extra money to fork out on more paperwork. In my opinion, if the town halls were to charge less, more vendors would be willing to request the certificate. Given that this is a relatively new dilemma, vendors and buyers should, in my opinion, at the point of negotiating a sale, decide if it is logical to request the certificate, find out the costs, and split this between them. In most cases it can be processed after a sale has taken place and a happy resolution of the issue is reached. By Toni Waterman, Unspoilt Andalusia (see advertisement below)

Philosophy A Lesson in Philosophy, life reversal! The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A death. Is that a bonus? I think the cycle is all backwards. You should die first. Get it out the way. Then live in an old people’s home. You get kicked out when you’re too young. You get a gold watch and go to work. You work 40 years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs and alcohol. You party. You get ready for high school. You go to grade school and become a kid. You play. You have no responsibilities. You become a baby. You go into the womb. You spend your last nine months floating... you finish off as an orgasm!

La Vaqueria - New Owners A change is as good as a rest they say, so feeling a little tired I have handed over La Vaqueria to two young chefs; full of enthusiasm and new ideas. Most of the things you love about your visits to this renovated old dairy in Benamargosa will remain the same but the Wednesday art classes have stopped (may start up again on another day at a later date) and instead there will be an intercambio breakfast every Wednesday from 11am - 1pm. The languages being learned will be Spanish and English on alternate weeks with staff taking your orders and chatting etc in that language. A fun way to practise whilst enjoying your breakfast, brunch or lunch!!!! The new owners, Josie Emma and Daniel Gallego Romero have a phenominal combined experience in many types of restaurant. Josie studied in the UK and is a great lover of cakes and traditional pastries whilst Daniels Asian experiences are clearly reflected in the new daily menu. Lots of work in the garden and interior has kept La Vaqueria quirky charm but improved upon it making it even more vibrant and

full of colour. The Sunday Lunch Buffets will continue as normal along with the the live music/jam sessions focusing on good, healthy home cooking with lots of vegetarian choices and special diets catered for. Meanwhile the new treatment room is ready so if you are a therapist in the area looking for free space contact La Vaqueria and arrange to meet your clients there during the week days. The 5.30pm yoga session will continue on Fridays followed by a night of serving food from around the world (check FB for updates or call to enquire). One thing that will not change is the weird and wonderful artwork as the new owners would like me to continue with my mosaics etc... now that I have more time!!!! Monthly mosaic classes will also continue as per normal. So all that remains is to wish Josie and Daniel lots of luck in their new venture and hope you will all continue to enjoy the home made food and hospitality. Viva La Vaqueria!!!

So whatever your interests El Valle has something for you! We meet on the first Mon of each month (apart from Aug when we take a break!) at the Camping Bar, Lake Vinuela. Please visit for directions.

You aren't the first medical practitioner to sleep with one of their patients, and you won't be the last. And you're single. Just let it go." But invariably another voice in his head would bring him back to reality.

I said, "My wife thinks that my d*** tastes funny." ------------------------------------------------------------My wife said she's leaving me because I'm over-competitive. "Not if I leave you first!" I shouted, as I raced her to the front door. ------------------------------------------------------------My grandfather died recently, he spent his final years as a regular user of facebook. We won't see the likes of him again. ------------------------------------------------------------I went for a testicle check up last week.
