There are two words in the English language which when spoken in sync are amazingly powerful, yet unfortunately vastly under used.

sales: kami - 664 210 468 Distribution/Collections: tony - 664 689 138

These two words are ‘thank you’. Human beings always seem to be moaning about one problem or the other. Let’s take a look at just a few of the most common moans and groans. “I’m too fat.” “I’m too thin.” “I’m too ugly.” “I had a difficult upbringing.” “The world is against me.” “I feel unloved.” “No one likes me.” “Why does nothing ever go right for me?” And the list goes on…

Wow! What an unsightly collection of negative statements. The thing is, what most people don’t realise is that you are the universe and the universe is you. So when you tell yourself these negative things all day and night, I’m afraid you’ll see more negativity in your life. It’s only when you begin to express gratitude for what you DO have in your life that suddenly the floodgates open and all those things you’ve been wanting for so long begin to pour in. It’s about feeling happy NOW so your energetic vibration is raised to such a level that you attract only good things into your life.

Let me give you an example of a very inspirational man who has totally cracked the gratitude egg. His name is Nick Vujicic and if you search for his name on you’ll witness firsthand just how totally amazing this guy is. Nick, who was born with no arms and legs, has been determined not to let his disability prevent him from leading a fulfilling and happy life. In fact he’s become an inspiration to people all over the world.

From The Ed (cont)

Despite his disability Nick still plays football, swims, plays golf, fishes, and more than all that, he gives a huge amount to the world. He regularly speaks to teenagers, children and adults about the importance of being thankful for what they have, going for their dreams and never giving up. At the age of eight Nick believed his life was doomed. He thought he’d never get a job, never get married and never have a life of purpose. But he has managed to overcome many challenges and has found a fresh perspective to life. He’s constantly smiling and joking and he always feels thankful and excited about what each new day will bring. His motto is, “No arms, no legs, no worries!” Now what’s your excuse? If Nick, who has no arms and legs, can squeeze so much joy and pleasure out of life, then why can’t you? Think about that the next time you feel like moaning about your current situation. Really, if you just start to say thank you for all the good things in your life, miracles will follow. Believe me, as one who practises gratitude on a daily basis, this sh** really works! For more information on Nick visit his website or check out his book ‘Life Without Limits’.

Strange News Smoking Chimp A chimpanzee addicted to smoking has died aged 52, after living ten years longer than the average chimp. Charlie the Smoking Chimp became famous around the world after picking up the habit from visitors to his South African zoo. A post mortem on the chimp will take place soon, which may show if smoking contributed to his death. The number of cigarettes Charlie smoked remains a mystery, as he went to great lengths to hide the unhealthy habit from his keepers. Head Teacher Eats Tarantula One of Britain's leading head teachers stunned pupils by eating a tarantula in front of a packed assembly. Aydin Onac ate the baked spider to raise money for a new sports and drama centre at the highly rated St Olave's Grammar School in Orpington, Kent. The spider was sourced from Cambodia, where they are farmed and eaten by locals as a delicacy, and Mr Onac insisted its importation complied with British and EU guidelines. But one parent, who did not wish to be named, said: "It's all very well raising money, but why does he have to behave as if he's taking part in I'm A Celebrity?" Another complained: "I know these spiders are farmed in Cambodia and considered a delicacy there, but we're not in Cambodia, we're in Orpington and in Orpington we don't do things like this."

High-Tec Car Park UK's most amazing car park A state-of-the-art car park has opened in Birmingham, as part of the brand new Cube building in the city centre. It's the first car park in the UK that does away with the infuriating business of finding a space. Motorists simply drive their car into a 'transfer garage', get out, then watch as the vehicle is lowered into the threestorey car park. After that, it's placed in an empty bay on an automatic carrier. When the driver wants the car back they simply swipe a special key fob. The vehicle is then collected and lifted back up to

the garage. Helpfully, the car is even turned around so it can be driven straight out. The system's manufacturer, German company Wohr, claims that there's no chance of the wrong car being the to returned garage. It also has superior energy efficiency than a standard car park, because of a reduced need for lights and ventilation. The Cube, which houses offices, shops and apartments, was completed earlier this year and is now taking on its first tenants. Spaces in the 339 capacity car park are still available and prices vary depending on how long the pass lasts for.

Línea Directa Launches Home Insurance For Foreign Residents In Spain • it guarantees the widest possible cover, such as damage caused by atmospheric phenomena. • the product, unique in the market, is offered entirely in English. Madrid, 6 september 2010.- Línea Directa Aseguradora, market leader in the sale of direct insurance, have launched top-quality home insurance designed exclusively for foreign residents in Spain. It caters for all their special circumstances and requirements. The policy, an innovative product which covers all the eventualities pertaining to the best multirisk insurance, will be sold entirely in English. Línea directa’s new home insurance for foreign residents contains the best cover on the market at a competitive price. As a result, damage caused by atmospheric phenomena such as wind or rain, garden deterioration, aesthetic damage up to 3000 euros or family civil liability up to 300,000 – among many others – are covered by the policy, which is unique in the insurance market.

faction is our highest priority. We were the first to offer our services entirely in English in order to facilitate the process of making contact with our English-speaking customers residing in Spain. Now, in further attempt to improve the quality of our service and attend to all their personal requirements, we have designed a home insurance policy to suit their every need.” As in 1996 with car insurance, Línea Directa’s International Department will use English to attend to all its foreign customers purchasing the new home insurance policy. Taking out the policy, making enquiries, presenting claims and sending documentation will be carried out entirely in the customer’s language, at a time which is convenient for them and with just one phone call. about Línea Directa aseguradora Línea Directa Aseguradora, 100% owned by Bankinter, is currently the fifth largest motor insurer in Spain, and specialises in the direct sale of car, motorbike, company fleet and home insurance.

De Cotta As we embrace autumn and say goodbye to summer, often one considers more pressing matters that shouldn’t be put off any longer, like getting a Will in Spain; or sorting out that planning issue on your rural property. With these types of issues, one needs to turn to the expert advice of a lawyer. De Cotta McKenna & Santafé Law Firm is an established part of the Nerja community and this month we look at some of the team. Sandra Wrightson, a Barrister Overseas registered with the Bar Council of England and Wales, and partner at De Cotta McKenna & Santafé, has rejoined the Nerja office from Mijas, strengthening the team of English legal talent in the office and providing a friendly, approachable contact for new and existing foreign national and ex-patriot clients. Sandra came to Spain in 1987 and lived in Competa for eight years; so Nerja has always been an important part of her family life. She returned to the UK in 1996 when she was called to the Bar and came back to Spain in 1997 to join De Cotta McKenna & Santafé as an academic barrister advising on all aspects of private international law. With over ten years experience working in Spain, she now regularly advises on all aspects of private International Law, Timeshare and Family Law. All of the Spanish legal advice is given by De Cotta’s highly experienced abogado team, but Sandra and her team enjoy meeting future and existing clients, and providing a friendly and successful English speaking service. Sandra enjoyed setting up the Nerja office originally, and the office has since expanded to incorporate three Spanish lawyers. Since Rob Westwater created and grew the Granada/Lecrin office, it created the perfect opportunity for De Cotta’s English legal services to be driven by a new partner based in the Nerja office. Sandra works closely with Reyes Gomez Llorente, Spanish Abogada based in the Nerja office – both of them do much of the firm’s family work and they’ll continue to work together in this area as well as in litigation matters. Sandra also works with Francisco Martin who has developed a very successful practice in Nerja in conveyancing and property matters such as building disputes and planning. The De Cotta office also boasts a new Danish lawyer. Thomas Gant is expanding the firm’s services into the Danish community; he is trilingual in Spanish, Danish and English! The Nerja office continues to be a friendly en-

vironment for clients to pop in for a consultation and advice. The helpful, bi-lingual administrative team includes Naomi and Helene. Helene is from the west coast of Scotland, and moved to Nerja some years ago. She joined De Cotta in 2005. Helene is one of the local administrators as well as the Personal Injury administrator, assisting the lawyers across all the offices. She enjoys outdoor activities and as an animal lover she has assisted as a volunteer with CAS and the Donkey Sanctuary. Naomi is a established member of the team, having joined the firm in 2002. In addition to her role as client liaison, she assists with the preparation of wills and powers of attorney. Naomi is also an aerobics instructor and holds Saturday classes for mature ladies in Nerja during the winter months. She also helping to organise the De Cotta Law sponsored Christmas Carol Service on Sunday December 19th at 4pm, at Iglesia de San Miguel (St Michael’s Church) in Plaza Andalucía, Nerja.

Need a Valet? How many times since you've lived in Spain have you got in your car and thought 'yuck, this car needs a damn good clean,' but you couldn't be bothered to do it? Well I constantly think this and the usual culprit is that annoying dust. Well rest assured, as you can now have your car valeted any day of the week for a very affordable price. Paul Atkin´s Car Mechanic in Puente don Manuel has recently introduced a full valeting service from just €22 per vehicle. If your car happens to be in the garage for a service or a repair, then why not take advantage of a full valet too?! Luckily for me my car didn't need repairing or servicing, but it was definitely in need of a thorough clean. Included in the valet was a hand wash and leather, window clean (inside and out), boot, seat, carpet and mat vacuum, all interior hard trim clean and shine, wheel clean and tyre black. All this for an amazing €22. (Ford Fiesta size). And the most fanstastic part of all was that new car smell as I drove down the road. With two small children my car doesn´t stay clean for long, but at these prices

I now can afford a full valet once a week! Prices are dependant on the size of your vehicle, but whatever sized vehicle you have, the prices are still crazily good value. If you want something a little more special then they cater for anyone´s requirements with a tailored valet, priced accordingly. For example, if your car has a major dust problem, or if it's covered in dog hairs, then this is time consuming and may cost a little more. But the best thing to do is pop it along and let them take a look and give you a quote. I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised. “Our aim is to fit in with the client's requirements," said Hayley. "We can do weekly washes, monthly valets, spills/stains, faded paint polishing, interior only, exterior only....whatever's needed. We have all the equipment amd chemicals to achieve the best results." a collection and delivery service is available on full valets in the Puente/Viñuela area, so what are you waiting for!

The Laws Of Golf And so say all of us.... Law 1: No matter how bad your last shot was, the worst is yet to come. This law does not expire on the 18th hole, since it has the supernatural tendency to extend over the course of a tournament, a summer and, eventually, a lifetime. Law 2: Your best round of golf will be followed almost immediately by your worst round ever. The probability of the latter increases with the number of people you tell about the former.

chant "You looked up," or invoke the wrath of the universe. Law 6: The higher a golfer's handicap, the more qualified he deems himself as an instructor. Law 7: Every par-three hole in the world has a secret desire to humiliate golfers. The shorter the hole, the greater its desire. Law 8: Topping a 3-iron is the most painful torture known to man.

Law 3: Brand new golf balls are water-magnetic. Though this cannot be proven in the lab, it is a known fact that the more expensive the golf ball, the greater its attraction to water.

Law 9: Palm trees eat golf balls.

Law 4: Golf balls never bounce off of trees back into play. If one does, the tree is breaking a law of the universe and should be cut down.

Law 11: Golf carts always run out of juice at the farthest point from the clubhouse.

Law 5: No matter what causes a golfer to duff a shot, all his playing partners must solemnly

Law 10: Sand is alive. If it isn't, how do you explain the way it works against you?

Law 12: The person you would most hate to lose to will always be the one who beats you.

Waynes Drains The origin of the name Wayne’s Drains is shrouded in mystery. How two trained and time-served plumbers, with a serious approach to their trade, came to Spain 13 years ago and mutated into the Wayne’s name, nobody knows...and Mike and Ian aren’t telling. If there ever was a Wayne on the staff, he’s not there now. What they are doing, though, is consistently investing in the latest technology in drainage leak detection, now including state-of-the-art electro-acoustic equipment from the USA. Wayne’s Drains’ cheeky ads on Coastline Radio, and their matching press advertisements and new website – – have helped make them ‘the number 1s in the area’. That service area extends to the whole of the Eastern Costa del Sol, the Costa Tropical and inland Axarquia. Their CCTV survey camera can generate a DVD of your pipes for you and your insurers – let’s hope for your sake it’s not a horror movie…What you’re getting with Wayne’s Drains is a combination of English

master plumbing and drain clearance, plus a truly deep-down knowledge of Spanish systems and materials. Bar and restaurant owners will know the importance of quickly clearing kitchen grease blockages and more unmentionable problems in the toilets, especially as they always happen on the busiest night of the year! A maintenance contract will ensure 24 hour call-out service and peace of mind. Householders can also get swimming pool leak repair or have troublesome roots cut away and removed. And for general plumbing work, Wayne’s Drains will get to the bottom of things – so if you’re building, doing some repairs or maybe a total reformation, get a quote. Finally, if you don’t where to turn for knowledgeable maintenance of hot water boilers, Mike, who’s from Oldham, promises to ‘give your old geyser a right good servicing’. You can get on the plumb line to them at 657 862 628 or 634 275 030 They’re nothing if not ambitious – today Wayne’s Drains, tomorrow Wayne’s World?

Los Caracoles Re Recently my boyfriend and I were privileged to spend a night at Los Caracoles, which literally translates as ‘The Snails’ and the experience left us totally shellshocked (excuse the pun)! If you’ve ever driven on the road from Torrox Pueblo to Frigiliana you’ve probably caught a sight of Los Caracoles, which is made up of a scattering of snails, accompanied by a larger snail. The ‘daddy’ snail is the main restaurant and reception area, while the 11 smaller snails make up a mixture of bungalows and double bedroom accommodation.

We coupled the stay with a trip to Frigiliana where we enjoyed a cheeky glass of the local sweet wine for only 75 cents. After we enjoyed a brisk stroll around the village, occasionally entering the odd shop to ogle the creative wares inside. That evening we dined in the large snail and

We stayed in a bungalow snail and I found the whole experience utterly exciting. I’d never slept overnight in a snail before and it sure beat the average comparatively tedious hotel room. As soon as I walked inside the snail’s door my face lit up with a smile; Moroccan style lamps, ornamental Geckos on the walls, rocking chairs, a comfy sofa, a flat screen TV – and all that just in the living room! The bathroom held yet more surprises – a double bath tub and even a rather impressive set of combs. Outside, Los Caracoles boasts a healthy range of flowers, plants and trees, which add an eyepleasing burst of colour. Amidst the 11 snails there’s also a swimming pool, which is open 23 hours a day, so if you fancy a midnight swim then you’re more than welcome to take the plunge!

the food was exquisite, especially dessert – an exotically presented brownie drenched in warm chocolate sauce with vanilla ice cream. Divine!

estaurante & Hotel

Relax and Dine with panoramic views of the mountains, sea and countryside And as if our tummies hadn’t already been treated enough, the following morning we revisited the larger snail, this time for brekkie. It started with a platter of seasonal fruit, followed by warm bread, a selection of meats and cheeses, plus olive oil and freshly sliced tomatoes. A note here about the staff at Los Caracoles. Never in my life have I come across such a lovely array of people. From Santos, the charming (and very attractive if I may say so myself) owner, to Joe, the incredibly funny and energy-oozing waiter, who previously managed El Barco, in Torrox Costa.

Another name for spiders is arachnids. In Greek mythology, there is a legend explaining how arachnids got their name. The story claims their was a girl in Ancient Greece named Arachne, who was famous for her weaving skills. But the goddess Athena became jealous of Arachne and out of spite she turned her into a spider. Thus, the name arachnid was born. Spiders’ silk webs are known for their strength as well as elasticity. But just how strong are they? The silk is so strong, that it could stop a Boeing 747 dead in the air. Pilots are lucky spiders don’t eat airplanes. To start a web between two far apart objects,

spiders need to be crafty. Some spider facts use the term “flying,” but that’s not actually how it’s done. Spiders use “ballooning,” to jump between areas. The spider raises its abdomen to release a long thread to catch a breeze, lifting the spider into the air. Because they are so small, spiderlings could be easy prey for other insects. Luckily, spiders are born with almost no colour, making them nearly invisible in the air. A Frenchman, Bon De SaintHilaire, showed it was possible to make fabric from spider silk. He would collect spider cocoons then boil, wash, dry and comb them to collect the thread. Today, this method would never be profitable. 1.3 million spider cocoons would yield only about 2 pounds of silk. The spider begins spinning its web in the evening or early morning before the flying insects get air-borne.

Amazing Animals - The Spider (Continued) Although many spiders use webs to snare insects, not all do. Jumping spiders hunt in the day using two large, forward facing eyes. These give them excellent vision for hunting. They stalk their prey then use strong hind legs to leap and catch their food. During WWII, the threads from certain spiders were used as resources by soldiers. Some used threads of orb weavers in their measuring equipment. The American soldiers used threads from the black widow spider for their telescopic gun sights. Sorry all you aspiring Spidermans, but spider facts don’t cover radioactivity. Spiders rarely bite people (unless provoked), so you should not fear daily encounters with deadly spiders. Spiders have eight eyes, eight legs, two body parts, outside skeletons, and fangs. They do

not have antennas or wings. Males are smaller than the females. A Comb Footed spider has bristles like a comb on its hind legs. It combs out the silk; when an insect flies into the web, it can quickly silk-wrap its food before the victim escapes. The Gray House spider and Red Back spider are species of the Comb Footed spider. The Golden Orb-Weaver most often lives in the garden and is harmless to people. The Dewdrop spider and other small spiders do not build a web but live near an orb web and eat the remains of left over insects. The Black Widow and the Brown Recluse spiders inject poison when they bite. They are most commonly found in the western and southern United States and Chile.

Film iew Love Rev Eat Pray

therapeutic fling with the hunk (James Franco) starring in her latest Off-Broadway production. So Liz files for divorce, crushing her husband's heart in the process.

Julia Roberts offers an engaging performance in the lead role of Liz, a playwright/journalist stuck in an unhappy marriage. Her hubby, Stephen (Billy Crudup) is a nice-enough guy, but the couple has grown apart. Their big difference is that she has a lust to visit exotic places, while he's an underachieving stick-inthe-mud.

Awkwardly consulting God for advice for the first time in her life, she’s blessed with the Divine inspiration to embark on a year-long journey in search of self-fulfilment. She starts in Italy to "eat" sumptuous feasts and soak in the sights. After a four-month stay, she flits off to India to "pray" and deny herself sensory delights. Finally, she heads to Indonesia where, if everything goes according to plan, who knows, she might find true "love. Along the way, Liz bonds with a buddy at each port of call: a sweet Swedish tourist (Tuva Novotny) in Naples, a troubled Texan (Richard Jenkins) at an ashram outside Delhi, and a tall, dark and handsome multi-millionaire (Javier Bardem) with a boat in Bali. In the end, perhaps the plot sounds more like a fairytale than an earnest, feminist quest for enlightenment, but that's probably about the best you can expect from a 21st Century Cinderella with a book deal who had probably already optioned the rights to turn her story into a Hollywood film.

Crying on the shoulder of her best friend (Viola Davis) doesn't help, nor does a temporarily-

Star Rating ***/***** very good :)

Directed by Ryan Murphy (Glee), Eat, Pray, Love (based on the internationally best-selling book by Elizabeth Gilbert) unfolds in fairly-formulaic fashion. Think of it as another makeover movie where a female protagonist undergoes a major transformation before riding off into the sunset with Mr. Right.

The Lemon Tree Imagine the scenario - "Darling Buds of May" and the whole family are sitting down to Sunday Lunch. A whole joint of meat in the middle of the table and "Pop Larkin" is sharpening the carving knife about to slice off everone's portion. A truely fantastic traditional setting I think you'll agree. How Sunday Lunches used to be like. Well don't despair those times are back!. Take a trip to the Lemon Tree in Riogordo for a Traditional Sunday Lunch. It's three courses for just 20â‚Ź per couple. For this you get a starter - meat and cheese platter or homemade soup, a big plate of salad, a WHOLE Chicken with roast potatoes, stuffing and Yorkshires surrounding it, gravy and 4 fresh veg and a mediterranean dish of 3-4 veg (so about 7 veggies), then if you manage it, coffee or ice cream. There is also a joint of

Pork with crackling for 5â‚Ź more. So why not invite your friends and order one one Chicken and one Pork. I have been twice now and it never ceases to amaze me of the quality and quantity of this "King of Sunday Lunches". When they serve the mains on a huge platter and supply the carving knife, your only indecision is who's going to be the "Daddy" and carve. Don't worry if, or should I say when you can't eat it all, Vanessa and Graham will bag it up and you can take it home. The Lemon Tree is a great place, has a great atmosphere and Graham and Vanessa bend over backwards to serve you.

Breast Screening Using DITI - Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging Janet Van Dam has seen both her mother and her younger sister fall prey to breast cancer. Thinking about how she could help other women from getting the disease, she has set up a practice to detect potential tumours before they’ve have the chance to grow. Her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1989 and died within eighteen months, at the age of 51. Then, in 2008 malignant tumours were found in her sister’s breasts. “Those two special women gave me the idea to bring something new to the Axarquia region of Spain, which will benefit many people,” said Janet. “In my new practice I’m offering Medical Thermography and Nutritional Coaching. Changing your eating habits will help to improve your health if a thermal examination indicates a change in diet is advisable.” Medical thermography (or Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging) is carried out by a special camera that can see differences in body temperature, indicating changes in muscle tissue, arteries, veins and bone structure. In a healthy body, the temperature pattern is more or less symmetrical. If an unsymmetrical pattern shows up, it’s worth investigating further. The screening can pick up on any alterations in the breasts at a very early stage before a cyst or tumour has even developed. This is the key to a good outcome. Here are some important points about Thermography: • It was registered as a Class 1 Medical Device in the EEC 2007/47/EC and complies with all EEC regulations. • It is the only real tool we have to detect early changes. A mammogram unfortunately can

only see the actual tumour once it’s there and the size of a large pea. • There is no radiation involved, which is dangerous for you or for the technician. Did you know that the chances of getting breast cancer increase by one per cent each time you have a mammogram? • There’s no pain, as your breasts are not squashed in a machine • Non-invasive. You do not need to be touched • It can be used for women of any age, breast densitiy is not important. • It can see a larger area of the breasts and around than a mammogram. • The Meditherm system I work with is top of the range, reliable and it has been used for many years with good results. The price for a breast screening is 120€. If it’s your first screening a follow up is needed after three months. After that it’s advisable yearly. The price for two scans is 205€. Janet is available for appointments at Centro Mar y Salud El Morche 952 532 065 / 617 913 196 for Thermography or Nutritional Coaching Tue from 11-5pm and Wed from 2 – 5pm and Fridays from her home in Sayalonga 618 989 125.

Every month Sally Harrison from Axarquia Properties talks us through the towns in the Axarquia. This month she speaks about Alfarnate. Alfarnate is one of the villages on the Route of Oil and Mountains. It can be found in the far northwest of the Axarquia at a height of 925 metres and although like most villages its almost completely flat, it’s surrounded by the rugged mountains of Jobo, Palomera and Enmedio, which tower majestically above the green valley filled with olive and cherry trees. Craggy grey rocks dominate the landscape, dotted with scattered trees perilously clinging between mosses and ferns. Mighty oaks and pines vie for attention below the hills of Puerto de los Alhazores and Puerto del Sol, natural steps that connect this area with its surroundings. Overlooked by the Cerro del Santo Cristo mountain, where outdoor mass is sometimes held at the sanctuary on top, the village boasts a unique layout with three bridges straddling

the Palancar stream. On one side is the Ermita de la Virgen de Monsalud, located in the upper quarter, a sixteenth century building with three arches and on the other side the Iglesia de Santa Ana, a 16th century building with a graceful Mudejar tower and oak beams supporting its natural wood ceiling. The Ayuntamiento was also built in the 16th century with three ubiquitous arches dominating its facade. Before leaving the area be sure to stop for a repast at La Antigua Venta de Alfarnate, a fully restored, 17th century inn, steeped in history, situated at the crossroads two kilometres from the village. As you are led behind the bar to be seated in the restaurant take a photo of the famous bandolero Luis Candelas in his prison cell. Sitting with his head on his hand he seems to be reflecting on his misspent youth which ended on November 6th 1837, when he was garroted at the age of 33. To drive to Alfarnate turn off the Colmenar to Velez-Malaga road (A356) at the Rio Gordo to Periana junction and drive in the direction of Periana (A7204), turn left for Alfarnatejo and continue up to Alfarnate (MA4102). The nicest way to return is towards Periana (MA4103) where the road winds its way down view spectacular views of the mountains, lake and distant coast.

Arkwrights Helping The Children´s Home In Malaga For those of you who don’t know, we raise money for the “Ciudad de los Ninos,” Malaga Children’s Home. We’ve had a wonderful response in the past, with customers bringing Christmas presents and donations to ensure that these children have something to celebrate. Most of the children are adolescents, therefore if anyone brings presents bear this in mind. Please attach a label to any wrapped presents indicating whether it’s for a boy or girl with an approximate age range. The most heart rending moment was when we passed over a present with the label “boy aged 7, given with love”. This just proves what wonderful customers come into our shop. It doesn’t matter if you can’t manage to buy a present. Instead, why not find all those one and two cent coins that annoy everyone, it’s amazing how much money this can raise. For more information on the children’s home visit their website, We

also take any unwanted saleable items for the car boots to raise money for the children. Here’s some more info about the home: Ciudad de los Ninos is located just outside Málaga city. It is run by brothers from the Catholic religious order "Hermanos Obreros de María" and is approved and monitored by the Andalusian Regional Government. On-site residence is provided for destitute children and those removed from parent custody while the on-site school is also open to children from lowincome families and caters to their special learning needs. The centre is located at Finca los Asperos in Malaga. Due to new laws passed recently, volunteers need to be professionally trained in this specialist field. However, raising funds through a special event is another excellent way of helping this needy cause. For more information, Tel: 952 179 150 or send an e-mail to Brother Juan Correa at Email: Items can be dropped into Arkwrights

Linda Jarrett is a fully qualified sports and remedial massage therapist, who specialises in treating sporting injuries, such as muscle sprains and strains. Sports massage can be used to treat specific injuries, as well as to help correct muscle imbalances and postural issues. These issues are corrected in order to prevent future injuries and improve the efficiency of muscles. Linda also treats chronic conditions such as frozen shoulder, lower back pain, sciatica and other restrictive movement issues. Massage, applied skilfully, is the most effective therapy for releasing muscle tension and restoring balance to the musculoskeletal system. Regular massages may help athletes prevent injuries. A constant build up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons, and the muscles themselves. What Happens During Sports Massage? Sports massage is a type of Swedish massage that stimulates circulation of blood and lymph fluids. Some sports massages use trigger point therapy to break down adhesions (knots in the muscles) and increase range of motion. Nowadays, massage therapy, often referred to as bodywork or somatic therapy, refers to the application of various techniques to the muscular structure and soft tissues of the body that include applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, vibration, rocking, friction, kneading and compression. Primarily the hands are used, although massage therapists also use other areas of the body, such as the forearms, elbows or feet. All of the techniques are used for the benefit of the musculoskeletal, circulatory-lymphatic, nervous and other bodily systems. In fact, massage therapy positively influences the overall health and well-being of the client.

Random Joke Little Firefighter. A firefighter was working on the engine outside the Station, when he noticed a little girl nearby in a little red wagon with little ladders hung off the sides, and a garden hose tightly coiled in the middle. The girl was wearing a firefighter’s helmet. The wagon was being pulled by her dog and her cat. The firefighter walked over to take a closer look. 'That sure is a nice fire truck,' the fire-

fighter said with admiration. 'Thanks,' the girl replied. The firefighter looked a little closer... The girl had tied the wagon to her dog's collar and to the cat's testicles. 'Little partner,' the firefighter said, 'I don't want to tell you how to run your rig, but if you were to tie that rope around the cat's collar, I think you could go faster.' The little girl replied thoughtfully, 'You're probably right, but then I wouldn't have a siren.'

torta – Pancake!

T’s the … e t e tas isin e to sh cu m i i t It’s Span of

turron – A seasonal treat, which appears in supermarkets any time from the end of October. It’s especially eaten during Christmas and the New Year.

tomate – No prizes for guessing what this one could be….Ermmm tomato perhaps?! tortilla Española – If you’ve lived in Spain for any length of time and you haven’t tried the good old traditional Spanish omelette, made with potato, eggs and sometimes onion then you haven’t lived! It’s delicious…. tortilla Francesa – The French form of omelette doesn’t contain potatoes, only eggs (unless you order a mushroom omelette of course, in which case it’ll also contain mushrooms, etc, etc…) trucha – This is trout. To prepare for cooking wrap it in foil with garlic, onions, white wine, salt and pepper. Cook for 20 minutes or so, open your foil parcel and enjoy the succulent trout in-

tarta – This is the word for cake and there are many different varieties. For example ‘tarta de queso’ is cheesecake. I find they never really get the biscuit base right (it’s always a bit soggy and disappointing), but apart from that who am I to moan?! ternera – Beef! If you’re looking for minced beef it’s called ‘ternera picada’. I’ve made many a nice spaghetti bolognaise since living in Spain. tomillo – Thyme! This is a herb, and like most herbs trial and error is key. Just chuck it in a dish one day and see if it makes it taste better…Masterchef here we come! tiburon – A strange one to end with…shark! Just make sure it’s dead before you attempt to put it on your plate…

Pen Press Living on the Edge: A Modern CAT-astrophy A new book by ‘cat woman’ Audrey Chandler, is based on a remarkable true story. Told through the eyes of the cats involved, this poignant, heart wrenching, but ultimately uplifting story will have a place on any cat lover’s bookshelf. We hear from Princess, an aloof beauty who hails from a family of high-born cats blighted by tragedy... Tiga, a bold warrior tomcat who turns from fighter to lover...Bee Bee, confined to a world of perpetual darkness...and Noddy, the loner who cheated his destiny but can’t forget his past. As this disparate band of feral cats takes refuge with a pair of kind, devoted humans, their lives, hopes and dreams interlock in a soulful tale that shows how cats, no less

than people, can be touched by fate, longing and the agony of loss. “The cat has too much spirit to have no heart” - Ernest Menault Audrey Chandler is a caring, kind-hearted woman who took in, fed and loved, 35 feral cats. She will be selling copies of her book and other cat goodies every Tuesday at Trapiche Farmers’ Market; Competa Christmas Market 4th Dec; Puente don Manuel, Chringuito Friday Night Christmas Market 10th Dec. Living on the Edge is published by Pen Press and available from

“Pig n Mix” Caterers So you have decided to throw a party for a special occasion? Ok, so what should you do about the food? There's the barbecue option, all that preparation and constantly having to be next to a raging hot grill to try to stop the food from burning. There's the outside caterers option, which is perhaps a bit formal and often quite expensive. You want something everyone will remember; good quality food with the wow factor. This is where a hog roast comes in. The food is cooked on your premises for about six hours and there's nothing better to build up an appetite than to watch your food slowly rotating and roasting in our state-of-the-art oven. And did we mention the delicious aroma drifting around the vicinity? Linda and Gary of ‘Pig and Mix’ have over twenty years experience in catering. Linda has a restaurant in Frigiliana, but has recently branched out to include outside catering and in particular hog roasts. "All our meat is locally reared and comes direct

from a licenced abattoir," said Linda. "All our accompanying dishes are made with fresh produce. We can either supply the machine, with a pig or half pig and gas for you to cook, or we can provide a chef for you. The choice is yours!" Linda and Gary can supply you with bread rolls, apple sauce and stuffing, or if you want to make your party more lavish, you can tag on some of their delicious salad accompaniments. "We've done hog roasts for parties, weddings and birthdays," said Linda. "Even restaurant owners have rented the machine for their own functions. Feedback from customers and their guests is always very positive and encouraging."

BEM idiomas Now you may read this article and think I’m crazy talking about Chrimbo already, but as I write this there are only about 64 days to Christmas! “Another year passed by” some of you may say. “Where has it gone?” Well, when I look back over this year the word ‘improvement’ pounces out at me as far as my Spanish is concerned. And too right seeing as I’ve sat through approximately 102 hours of Spanish, give or take a few bank holidays and a couple of sickies! Already I’m starting to think what my New Years Resolution for 2011 can be. Last year it was to make sure I spoke Spanish every day at my daughter’s school. Unfortunately this only lasted for a couple of weeks. However, I did pick it up again later in the year. I know that doesn’t count, but something is better than nothing! I’ve been living in Spain for nearly four years now and I regret the fact that I haven’t learnt one new word every day to widen my vocabulary. I’m getting good with my verbs now, but I just don’t have enough vocabulary to enable me to say everything I want to. So you’ve guessed it, my New Year’s resolution is already

Mind, Body & Spirit In an earlier article I touched on the issue of abandonment and its impact on our emotional and mental state. In thirty years of practise as a healer, I find this issue frequently appears at the core of my clients’ problems. Low self-esteem, feelings of worthlessness, self hatred, hopelessness, helplessness, anxiety, chronic fear states and more all are rooted in the emptiness and desolation that is the inner experience of abandonment. Depression, panic attacks, addictions, eating disorders and even schizophrenia, are all traceable to a fundamental FEELING of abandonment. Relationships too are shaped and often sabotaged by underlying fears of abandonment and rejection. These almost invariably arise at the beginning of life, usually caused by prolonged separation from our Mother. Until recently, modern man deemed newborn babies to be insentient, unaffected by the experience of birth and early life. Mother/ baby separation was not seen as problematic, and in some cases it was even thought to be desirable. Only recently has the natural wisdom begun to be re-accepted and scientifically validated, that babies and infants are dependant on the Mother child bond in order to develop a firm emotional foundation. This includes feelings of belonging and connectedness; of being a worthy, loveable person, of deserving love, support and care; of confidence in ones ability to give and receive love and of trust in Life and in others. Some years ago Jean Liedloff, a social anthro-

pologist, went to live with an Indian tribe in South America. She was struck by the children’s extraordinary level of emotional maturity and confidence, and by their rapid physical and social development.. She determined the reason for such precocity was something she termed “the continuum”. From the moment of birth a baby was never alone! Initially carried by the Mother in a sling, then later kept close by, free to explore their individual freedom but always within easy reach of the Mother’s reassuring presence. As the babies grow their continuum expands to include other family members, siblings and infants. They never “lose touch” with their primal sense of belonging, of being connected, having their presence recognised and their needs responded to. In today’s modern society such an ideal start in life may be hard to achieve. However, no matter how abandoned we may have perceived ourselves to be, such deep feelings can be healed. As human beings we are hugely resilient, and while it’s a challenging journey, it’s one which I’ve been privileged to accompany countless clients upon, and I’ve shared their liberation and joy at once again feeling a fundamental sense of belonging, worthiness and love. Richard Waterborn is a professional healer. His work is based on the premise that all illnesses and mental/emotional conditions can be healed from within by identifying the root causes and releasing negative energy at a cellular level.

) : a h a h s e k o J Paddy is passing by Mick's hay shed one day when through a gap in the door he sees Mick doing a slow and sensual striptease in front of an old red Massey Ferguson. Buttocks clenched he performs a slow pirouette and gently slides off first the right welly, followed by the left. He then hunches his shoulders forward and in a classic striptease move lets his braces fall down from his shoulders to dangle by his hips over his corduroy trousers.Grabbing both sides of his checked shirt he rips it apart to reveal his tea stained vest underneath and with a final flourish he hurls his flat cap on to a pile of hay. 'What on earth are you doing Mick' says Paddy 'Jeez Paddy, ye frightened the livin bejasus out of me' says an obviously embarrassed Mick, 'but me and the Missus been having some trouble lately in the bedroom department, and the Therapist suggested I do something sexy to a tractor.’ --------------------------------------------------------A fifteen year old Amish boy and his father were in a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again. The boy asked, 'What is this Father?' The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, 'Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is.' While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old lady in a wheel chair moved up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened, and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed, and the boy and his father watched the small numbers above the walls light up sequentially.. They continued to watch until it reached the last number, and

then the numbers began to light in the reverse order. Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blonde stepped out. The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son. 'Go get your Mother.' --------------------------------------------------------At a pharmacy, a blonde asked to use the infant scale to weigh the baby she held in her arms. The clerk explained that the device was out for repairs, but said that she would figure the infant's weight by weighing the woman and baby together on the adult scale, then weighing the mother alone and subtracting the second amount from the first. "That won't work," countered the woman. "I'm not the mother, I'm the aunt." ---------------------------------------------------------Late one Friday night the policeman spotted a man driving very erratically through the streets of Dublin. He pulled the man over and asked him if he had been drinking that evening. "Aye, so I have. 'Tis Friday, you know, so me and the lads stopped by the pub where I had six or seven pints. And then there was something called "Happy Hour" and they served these mar-gar-itos which are quite good. I had four or five o' those. Then I had to drive me friend Mike home and O' course I had to go in for a couple of Guiness - couldn't be rude, ye know. Then I stopped on the way home to get another bottle for later .." The man fumbled around in his coat until he located his bottle of whiskey, which he held up for inspection. The officer sighed and said, "Sir, I'm afraid I'll need you to step out of the car and take a breathalyser test." Indignantly, the man said, "Why? Don't ye believe me?!?"
