Editor: keidi - 610 976 284 Email: info@thesentinella.com

It’s very rare that I dedicate this entire editorial column to an individual or a business, but when I do it means I found them totally exceptional, surpassing all pre-conceived expectations by a mile. So allow me to introduce Mark Bajerski, a psychic and healer, who lives in the magical mountains of Mijas Pueblo with his wife Suzie and his daughter China. Mark’s studio is located in the centre of Mijas Pueblo, opposite the town hall and it's from here that he gives clients ‘future readings’ and ‘Pure Energy healings’. On the ground floor his wife’s amazing shop ‘Tickled Pink’ lures in passers-by; a true Aladdin’s cave, alive with gifts and knick knacks. I discovered Mark on Facebook and immediately felt drawn to visit him for a reading. I arrived slightly early so I spent a few minutes admiring the wares in Tickled Pink before Mark called me up to his studio. I felt at ease right away because Mark has obviously spent a great deal of time and effort creating a relaxing, tranquil ambience – the walls are purple and the chairs comfy and cushioned! Mark uses Tarot as a tool to deliver his readings, so he began by parting the cards. I placed my hands on top of the cards and Mark detected my energy field to see whether there was any negative flow in my body. He said my body was healthy with no problematic areas, but he sensed that my mind was busy with information - he could even feel it vibrating! Mark rubbed a vibrant smelling orange-coloured oil on my wrists (this oil is kept in a huge glass jar, full of cleansing crystals) and began to talk.

From The Ed (cont)

The reading itself was almost spookily accurate and even though a lot of it was based on the future, it resonated with me on a deeper level. I was even told important information about a handful of relatives. After the reading I lay on the bed while Mark performed his energy healing. I’m not sure how long this took so I must have fallen asleep. When I woke up Mark said he’d worked on my stomach as I held a lot of emotion there and it needed to be released. For two days after my stomach rumbled and grumbled, which is a great sign as it means the healing worked. On a personal level I found Mark warm, friendly, passionate about his work, loving, sincere and full of light. You only need to look at the ‘testimonial’ area of his website to see that I’m not the only one who felt impressed.

Strange News Top Cop Dons A Frock One of India's top policemen shocked colleagues by suddenly announcing he had decided to become a woman. Inspector Dickie Panda is the Inspector General of police in Lucknow, capital of Uttar Pradesh. But the hardened police chief turned up at work last month in a pretty frock and announced he was now a woman. Naked Thrills More than 100 naked thrill-seekers stripped off to raise money for charity by riding starkers on a speeding rollercoaster. The enthusiasts bared all for the ride of their life on the Green Scream rollercoaster at Southend-on-Sea, Essex.

I left Mark’s studio feeling… I don’t know… different. I felt happy. I felt positive. But above all I felt totally confident and hugely excited about my future… Thanks Mark, you’re a beautiful person with a beautiful heart!

Barbara Warner, of the Bosom Pals Appeal, said: "We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who was brave enough to bare all and raise such a huge amount of cash - more than £22,000."

For more information about Mark, or to book a reading, log on to: www.MarkBajerski.com email: markbajerski@hotmail.com or call 649 369 009.

Marinated Cat Police in the US were shocked to find a live cat 'marinating' in oil and peppers, in a motorist’s boot.

By the way, it’s worth noting that Mark offers free healing sessions to cancer patients. Call to find out dates and times.

Officers in Buffalo, New York, heard the cat meowing when they stopped Gary Korkuc, 51, for ignoring a stop sign.

They checked the boot and found the cat, Navarro, in a cage, his fur covered with oil, salt, crushed red peppers and chili peppers. Mr Korkuc allegedly told police he was planning to cook Navarro because he was "illtempered". Navarro has been cleaned up by animal protection workers, who plan to put him up for adoption. Mr Korkuc has been charged with animal cruelty.

David Beckham "I would not be bothered if we lost every game as long as we won the league." Mark Viduka "Alex Ferguson is the best manager I've ever had at this level. Well, he's the only manager I've actually had at this level. But he's the best manager I've ever had." David Beckham "If you don't believe you can win, there is no point in getting out of bed at the end of the day." Neville southall "I've had 14 bookings this season - 8 of which were my fault, but 7 of which were disputable." Paul gascoigne "I've never wanted to leave. I'm here for the

Linea Directa EL PAÍS, RNE AND ANTENA 3 TV, WINNERS OF THE SEVENTH EDITION OF LÍNEA DIRECTA’S ROAD SAFETY JOURNALISM AWARDS Línea Directa Aseguradora, market leader in the direct sale of car, motorbike and home insurance has announced the winners of the VII Road Safety Journalism Awards, in a ceremony presided over by the Minister of the Interior, Alfredo Pérez-Rubalcaba, and attended by a number of celebrities from the world of politics, finance and communication. The Minister of the Interior highlighted that “The work carried out by media professionals and organisations like those which have received an award from Línea Directa is essential, and therefore receives the Department of the Interior’s full support and gratitude. Figures in recent years show a clear improvement in the number of road accidents in Spain, but we cannot forget that there is still a great deal to do and that it is vital to keep fighting to reduce the number of deaths from traffic accidents as far as possible.” María Dolores Dancausa. CEO of Línea Directa and Alfredo Pérez-Rubalcaba, the Spanish Minister of the Interior Elsa granda from El País, the programme team from “En días como hoy” (“On days like today”) on rNE (Spanish National Radio) and Javier gallego from antena 3 television News, were the winners in this seventh edition in the categories of written Press, radio and television, respectively, each receiving a prize of 9,000 euros. The jury focused on the innovative nature of the topics, the variety of sources, how the information was presented and the documentation used by the winners. honorary and solidarity awards Línea Directa Aseguradora is a socially responsible company strongly committed to reducing the number of traffic accidents in Spain. Since it was founded, it has developed new channels of research and analysis which have encouraged drivers to adopt safe driving habits in our country. As a result, once again it wishes to recognise the work of those entities, social foundations or individuals who have shown a strong commitment to road safety. Therefore, Línea Directa’s road safety solidarity award went to the

instituto de tráfico y seguridad Vial (Traffic and Road Safety Institute) (INTRAS), in recognition of the groundbreaking projects developed by this organization in our country to raise social awareness and carry out scientific research into road safety. Jaime Sanmartín, President of INTRAS, received the award from the Minister of the Interior, Alfredo Pérez-Rubalcaba. In addition, Línea Directa’s honorary road safety award went to the Federación Española de Bebidas Espirituosas (Spanish Federation of Alcoholic Beverages) (FEBE) for promoting the concepts of the designated driver and responsible behaviour when behind the wheel. Jaime Gil-Robles, President of FEBE, received the award from Pilar González de Frutos, President of UNESPA, (Spanish Association of Insurers and Reinsurers). In her speech, María Dolores Dancausa, CEO of Línea Directa Aseguradora, pointed out that “Línea Directa’s Road Safety Journalism Awards are only one step in the long journey that we still have to make. But if, year after year, by getting people to talk about road safety we only manage to avoid, at some time – somewhere – a single death – just one – all our commitment and hard work to make these awards a benchmark in the fight against deaths on the road, will have been worthwhile. That is why, in Línea Directa, seven years on, we still believe that road safety – speaking about everybody’s safety - , deserves an award.” More participants than ever before Every year Línea Directa Aseguradora gives Road Safety Journalism Awards to those journalists who, in their daily work, help to make people aware of safe driving habits, encouraging all of us to gain a deeper and better knowledge of road safety related topics. In this seventh edition, there were 28% more participants than in the previous one, with a total of 491 projects, which outlines how both our country’s journalists and the public in general are becoming more and more interested in road safety. To find out more about Línea Directa and its comprehensive and very competitive motor insurance policies, call 902 123 104.

De Cotta The Role of the Notary in Spain De Cotta McKenna y SantafĂŠ For those of us hailing from a common law jurisdiction such as England, the role of the Notary in Spanish public life is something that few ever truly come to grips with. More often than not, the commonly held view is that he, for invariably the notary is a 'he', seems to do little more than paraphrase a document your lawyer has just read to you in a language you understand, asks you to sign the final page in blue ink, scribbles his own indecipherable squiggle on each page before relieving you of more money than you'd care to donate on a Sunday morning. However, the notary plays a pivotal role in Spanish society. His signature and stamp elevate the ordinary into something extraordinary or, to be more accurate, transforms the 'private' into the 'public'. Let me give you an example. In Spain, there are a variety of types of Will. For the sake of this discussion, the first type of Will is the Handwritten Will, written by

yourself in longhand, invariably photocopied for immediate family members, with the original being sealed in an envelope. The second type of Will is the Open Will which is sworn before a Notary in accordance with formal procedure as in 'I, the Notary public of a town called Nerja hath read this Will aloud to the testatrix in a language she understands and thereby she hereby sets her hand with mine and doth formally swear this instrument‌' etc., is thereby transformed from being a rather inert private document into a full bodied 'public' document. The Notary's witnessing the swearing of your Will means that he can then register the Will with the Central Wills Agency in Madrid. Accordingly, little short of a military coup in Madrid, your Will will come with a lifetime guarantee and be valid for eternity – or at least until you swear another Will.

9/11 Facts The Little Things As you might remember, the head of a company survived 9/11 because his son started kindergarten. Another fellow was alive because it was his turn to bring doughnuts. One woman was late because her alarm clock didn't go off in time.

The one that struck me was the man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning, took the various means to get to work but before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot. He stopped at a chemist to buy a plaster that is why he is alive today‌ Now when I am stuck in traffic, miss the lift, turn back to answer a ringing telephone...all the little things that annoy me. I think to myself, this is exactly where God wants me to be at this very moment‌

One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike because of a car accident. One of them missed his bus. One spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to change. One's car wouldn't start. One couldn't get a taxi.

Next time your morning seems to be going wrong, you can't seem to find the car keys, you hit every traffic light, don't get mad or frustrated; It may be just that God is at work watching over you.

Los Caballos Del Mosquin While visiting Andalucia, make sure you visit a special riding stable with Andalusian pure-breds and Arab-Spanish horses. Caballos del Mosquin, is situated near the small, picturesque mountain village of Canillas de Albaida, not far from Málaga. Situated on the southern slopes of the spectacular mountains of Sierra Almijara (2,068m), Los Caballos del Mosquin has all the attractions of this Natural Park in its backyard. Riding there up into the mountains feels like flying and riding Pegasus himself. The scenery is breathtaking and the rides are guided by Eva Maria Sigvardt, a Danish horsewoman who has lived in Andalucia for many years. The hills and deep valleys around it are laced with tracks ideal for both short and long rides through some of the most glorious nature that southern Spain has to offer. The superb panoramas of land and sea (on clear days you can see the North African coastline with the Rif Mountains) are combined with rugged mountain backdrops, abundant vegetation (olive and almond grows at lower altitudes, forests of pine and native oaks interlaced with wild rosemary and lemon thyme higher up) and plenty of running water in rivers, streams and old irrigation channels. The valleys are full of bright pink Oleander bushes and colourful flowers blossom everywhere in early summer and autumn.

"My beloved horses and I try to do our utmost to give the riders, on all levels, an unforgettable experience in the surrounding nature and through having harmony with the horse," said Eva. "The horse is the key here, showing the rider their own natural abilities and this can only support a rider’s confidence. We have worked to turn the conventional concept around. Here it is not the rider dominating the horse to do what the rider wants of the horse, but the horse who shows the rider what it is able to do with the right communication from the rider – and always in the horses’ own language.” “I've been working with horses since I was six-years-old and I've been giving riding lessons since the age of ten. I ran my own riding club in Denmark until I was interrupted by studies, a career and travelling for 12 years. I don’t believe in living off horses as a business, at least I haven’t been able to. But I do see it as a justified hobby and a lifestyle." Eva also offers lessons in the fenced, safe and scenic paddock at Los Caballos del Mosquín. Anyone of any age or level of experience can learn to ride or improve their riding skills with our multilingual, qualified and experienced instructors. Safety is a priority. See main advert below:

The Word Queen Preparing A Killer Submissions Package

shell.

If you’ve finished editing and proofreading your book and you’re ready to send it off to publishers and agents, then you’ll need to put together a submissions package. Many writers aren’t familiar with what information they should include, so today I’m going to let you know!

* a CV

Along with at least three chapters of your manuscript you should also prepare and send the following to prospective publishers and agents: * an introductory / query letter – Include such information as what kind of book you want to publish, whether you have completed the book or not and details about your personality. *a synopsis – Share what genre it sits within. Do not describe the plot in chapter by chapter order. Instead, sum it up in a nut-

*a book blurb - This is the writing on the back of a book, which propels readers into making a decision about whether to buy your book or not. Once you have all this ready, you can begin sending off your manuscript excerpt and supporting documents to relevant publishers and agents. And remember, if you’re having trouble putting together your submissions package, I offer the full service including a list of 30 relevant publishers and agents to approach, for a fee of 150€.

When I got

Police say there's a system going on - distract someone while someone else steals from the car!! Another woman reported a similar thing to the police too someone stole her bag, with a black car for distraction, in the underground car park at the other Mercadona in Torre.

Short & Sweet One liners George Clooney is to star in a new film about Gary Glitter, called "Oh, She's Eleven."

"Yes. Homer is fat and yellow and Marge is a skinny bird with big blue hair"

There's a new Muslim clothing shop opened in Camberley but I've been banned from it after asking to look at some bomber jackets.

i was in the express lane at the store quietly fuming. Completely ignoring the sign, the woman ahead of me had slipped into the check-out line pushing a trolley piled high with groceries. imagine my delight when the cashier beckoned the woman to come forward looked into the cart and asked sweetly, 'so which six items would you like to buy?' wouldn't it be great if that happened more often?

a mate of mine has just told me he's shagging his girlfriend and her twin. i said "how can you tell them apart?" he said "her brother's got a moustache!"

Because they had no reservations at a busy restaurant, my elderly neighbour and his wife were told there would be a 45-minute wait for a table. 'Young man, we're both 90 years old, ' the husband said ..'We may not have 45 minutes.' They were seated immediately.

A biker goes to the doctor with hearing problems. "Can you describe the symptoms to me?" asked the doctor.

the reason congressmen try so hard to get re-elected is that they would hate to have to make a living under the laws they've passed.

My wife told me i was no longer romantic so i booked a table for the two of us on Valentine's Night. Problem was she's useless at snooker.

Orange Grove kitchens This month The Sentinella caught up with Mark from Orange Grove Kitchens. kami:Tell us about Orange Grove Kitchens? Mark:Orange Grove Carpentry Services has been going for about four years now. Recently I've been making more and more kitchens and I'd forgotten just how much I enjoy making them...hence the new advert. kami:What makes you different? Mark:Well I’m not a high street shop or showroom. I do almost everything myself, from design to completion. It´s nice to wander around a showroom and get a 3D autocad drawing, but all this adds to your cost. kami:Talk us through getting a quote. Mark:I come to your house, discuss exactly what you want from your kitchen, then I do a freehand drawing, we look through the brochures, the client chooses their colour/ style. Finally, the appliances and worktops are chosen. I then provide a quote with all

this information. A day is then arranged to visit my supplier where the client can confirm their choices. kami:Can you beat any high street quote? Mark:Truth be told I’m not sure. It’s not a promise as you never know what deals other companies are offering, but what I do promise is that I’ll do my best. I will not work from other companies drawings because in think its unethical" kami:Ok Mark, last question. How long does a kitchen take to complete? Mark:Generally there’s a three week lead in time to get the doors and panels made. I like to start on a Monday and I try to have it completed within a week. I work on Sundays if I have to, to ensure the client comes first as no one wants to be without a kitchen for more than a week. See advert below

Llamas are members of the camelid, or camel, family. Camelids first appeared on the Central Plains of North America about 40 million years ago. About 3 million years ago, llamas' ancestors migrated to South America. Llamas were first domesticated and used as pack animals 4,000 to 5,000 years ago by Indians in the Peruvian highlands. Llamas are smart and easy to train.

Llamas weigh 280 to 450 pounds and can carry about a quarter of their body weight, so a 400-pound male llama can carry about 100 pounds on a trek of 10 to 12 miles with no problem. Llamas are vegetarians and have efficient digestive systems. Llamas live to be about 20 years old. Llamas are social animals and prefer to live with other llamas or herd animals. Llamas don't bite. They spit when they're agitated, but that's mostly at each other. The current population of llamas and alpacas in South America is estimated to be about 7 million, and there are about 20,000 - 25,000 llamas and 800 - 1,000 alpacas in the U.S. and Canada today.

Random Joke :) An Irish farmer named Seamus had an accident with a lorry, and was suing the lorry company. In court their hot-shot solicitor was questioning Seamus.. solicitor: 'Now didn't you say to the Police at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine?' . seamus: 'Well, I'll tell you what happened. I had just loaded my favorite cow, Bessie, into the...' solicitor: 'I didn't ask for any details', 'Just answer the question. Did you not tell the police officer, at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine!'?' seamus: 'Well, I had just got Bessie into the sidecar and I was driving down the road....' The solicitor interrupted again and said, 'Your Honour, I am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the police on the scene that he was fine. Now several weeks after the accident, he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the question.'

Then the policeman came charging across the road, gun still in hand, looked me up and down, and said, 'How badly are you hurt?' 'Now what would you have said'?

By this time, the Judge was fairly interested in Seamus's answer and said to the solicitor: 'I'd like to hear what he has to say about his favourite cow, Bessie'. Seamus thanked the Judge and proceeded. 'Well as I was saying, I had just loaded Bessie, my favourite cow, into the sidecar and was driving her down the road when this huge lorry and trailer came through a stop sign and hit me right in the side. I was thrown into one ditch and Bessie was thrown into the other. I was hurt very bad like, and didn't want to move. However, I could hear old Bessie moaning and groaning. I knew she was in terrible pain just by her groans. Shortly after the accident, a policeman on a motorbike turned up. He could hear Bessie moaning and groaning so he went over to her. After he looked at her, and saw her condition, he took out his gun and shot her between the eyes.

Film iew ReInvception Dreams are funny things. Generally, they’re fascinating for the dreamer, but not particularly interesting for anybody else, unless, of course, you watch Inception. Christopher Nolan, the 39-year-old British director of ‘Memento’ and ‘The Dark Knight’ throws stunts, effects, locations and actors at one big idea: that it’s possible to pull ideas from dreams by a process called ‘extraction’, which involves hooking yourself to a drip, falling asleep and entering the subconscious.

The idea is to reverse this process, which is ‘inception’, the planting of a new idea in another’s mind. That’s the trick that experts Dom (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Arthur (Joseph Gordon Levitt) try while hopping from Tokyo to Paris to Mombasa. They’re working for Saito (Ken Watanabe) in pursuit of business magnate Robert (Cillian Murphy). But DiCaprio has another driver: the memory of his wife Mal (Marion Cottilard) is haunting him and it’s going to take a lot of psychological cleaning for him to reconnect with that lost world. Like all good science fiction, ‘Inception’ demands that we pay serious attention to pure fantasy on the back of strong ideas – but it also combines fantasy with real observations about our sleeping lives.

Paella – We should all know this one! A famous rice dish seasoned with saffron and usually made with seafood, meat, and vegetables. Sometimes chunks of rabbit sneak in…ahhhhh!

cake. Pescado – The lifeblood of chiringuitos – fish is served by the plate, whether its clams, mussels, prawns, rosada, salmon, whitebait, or sardines. Pera – Pears are incredibly scrumptious and I like to chop them up as a tasty addition to salad. Pimientos – Peppers came in an array of different colours, although I find they all taste pretty much the same. They come in red, green and yellow.

Patatas – Every meal in Spain seems to come with a serving of patatas and they’re usually the fried variety, patata fritas (or chips).

Plátano – Platanos are bananas, but watch out - if you leave them uneaten for too long in the recent hot temperatures then they go brown and manky damn fast. Top tip: pop them in the freezer (peeled) and eat them as a healthy alternative ice cream. This works for seedless grapes too.

Pato – This is duck and commonly found in Chinese restaurants where you can wrap it up with strips of cucumber in a tasty pan-

Pulpo – This is octopus for those who are daring enough to eat it. Personally it makes my tummy turn!

Pan – This one’s pretty obvious too. Just use your loaf and you’ll get it!

No more mowing, watering or dead spots! Artificial grass is the solution for a unique ground covering. For more info or a free quotation

UK Border Agency

Ding, ding, ding! It's Share'oscope time again and you know what that means don't you?!

I went to casualty the other day. Not wanting to sit there for 4 hours, I put on my old Customs uniform and stuck a badge onto the front of my shirt that I had downloaded off the Internet.

This months share is Ceres Power holdings and Mr Stockmarket has purchased 1298 of them at 77p each. Ceres Power Holdings is in the electronic and electrical equipment sector. Last month Mr Stockmarket purchased JP Morgan Russian Securities at 550p. They're now up to 565p. Tune in again next month to find out the chosen share for October. Note that the investments we make are fictitious. Profits are not guaranteed, so please only invest what you can afford to lose.

When I entered casualty I noticed that 75% of the people got up and left. I suspect they decided that they weren't that sick after all. Cut at least 3 hours off my waiting time. Here's the badge. Feel free to use it the next time you're in need of quicker emergency service. It also works at the DSS. It saved me 5 hours. At the Laundry, 3 minutes after entering, I had my choice of any machine, most still running. Don't try it at McDonald's though.... The whole shift got up and left and l never got my order...

Out The Mouths Of Babes Why we love children 1) Nudity I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the back seat, 'Mum, that lady isn't wearing a seat belt!' 2) Opinions On the first day of school, a new starter handed his teacher a note from his mother. The note read, 'The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents.' 3) Ketchup A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the jar. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone. 'Mummy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now. She's hitting the bottle.' 4) More nudity A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, 'What's the matter, haven't you ever seen a little boy before?' 5) Police While taking a routine vandalism report at a primary school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6-years-old. Looking up and down at my uniform, she asked, ‘Are you a cop?’

‘Yes,’ I answered and continued writing the report. ‘My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?' 'Yes, that's right,' I told her. 'Well, then,' she said as she extended her foot toward me, 'would you please tie my shoe?' 6) Bible A little boy opened the big family Bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages. 'Mama, look what I found,' the boy called out. 'What have you got there, dear?' With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, 'I think it's Adam's underwear!' 7) Elderly While working for an organisation that delivers lunches to the elderly, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. She was unfailingly intrigued by the various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers and wheelchairs. One day I found her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, 'The tooth fairy will never believe this!' 8) Dress-up A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, 'Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit.' 'And why not, darling?' 'You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning.'

Senior Moment A Senior Moment Garage Door The boss walked into the office one morning not knowing his zipper was down and his fly area wide open. His assistant walked up to him and said, 'This morning when you left your house, did you close your garage door?' The boss told her he knew he'd closed the garage door, and walked into his office puzzled by the question. As he finished his paperwork, he suddenly noticed his fly was open, and zipped it up. He then understood his assistant's question about his 'garage door.' He headed out for a cup of coffee and paused by her desk to ask, 'When my garage door was open, did you see my Hummer parked in there?' She smiled and said, 'No, I didn't. All I saw was an old mini van with two flat tyres..

Too Hot for Roasts?! During the hot summer months, do you really want a traditional Sunday roast dinner? Not, according to many bars and restaurants, as they take their roast dinners off the menus. But what if you really fancy one like I did last month? Where do you go? I found the Garden Restaurant still advertised roast dinners, so I booked a table, later I found booking to be a must, as they were very busy! The restaurant itself is fully air conditioned and made a pleasant relief from the 300+ heat outside. It is furnished to a high standard with lots of green plants, hence the name I suppose, and the table dressed superbly. I was really looking forward to this! A choice of 3 homemade starters including soup of the day (so thick you could eat it with a fork) and homemade paté and toast, a big lump of the stuff – delicious. For mains there was a choice of Pork, Beef or Turkey. Pork and Turkey were chosen. Giant plates were served with the meat, po-

tatoes and Yorkshire Puds on and separate veggies (fresh), gravy boat and condiments – apple sauce and cranberry sauces. The food was fantastic and plenty of it too. I was thinking that if I didn´t stop eating, dessert would be out of the question. Needless to say, I kept munching as it was so good. The waiter Terry cleared the very empty plates and asked if we would like a few minutes before desserts, he must have read our minds! There were 4 choices of desserts and I chose Banoffee Pie and the wife Apple Pie and custard, both homemade and so thick you could build houses with them, utterly supreme! So 3 courses for 10 euros is great value, mixed with great surroundings and great ambience, it is a must for anyone. A word of warning – DON´T HAVE BREAKFAST!! See page 73 for details

Molina Sports Health & Fitness Centre

According to Sergio of Molina Gym, in Venta Baja 'physical exercise isn't the same as sport.' Sergio says that “Some people do sport to better their physical condition when they should be doing just the opposite; they should better their physical condition by doing sport with the least risk.” Some benefits of physical exercise include: *It increases muscular mass, which is especially important from a certain age since it reverses the process of muscle loss and stops fat accumulating. *Physical exercise is the best anti-ageing procedure. *It betters the absorption of insulin: Prevents

BEM idiomas By the time you read this article there will only be approximately ten days of the school summer holidays left. “Thank goodness," many of you will say. However, how many of you decided to spend the summer starting those all important Spanish lessons which will enable you to enjoy life in Spain much more? Maybe summer wasn´t a great time for you with the children off school, or maybe it was just too hot for you to even breathe! But now that we're in September you can´t use those excuses anymore! Personally, I'm so happy I started Spanish lessons, as before whenever someone spoke to me in Spanish I always responded with “Do you speak English”. I had become so used to saying this that it had become a habit. I didn´t even try to understand what was being said. However, now I ask, “can you repeat that, or can you speak slowly”. This way I try and understand and converse. What I like about BEM idiomas in Velez

Mind, Body & Spirit This month I’m looking at the role played by both prescribed drugs and so-called “recreational” drugs in health and disease from a holistic perspective. In attempting to eliminate symptoms of disease, drugs short-circuit the natural feed-back pathways of the body and often cause serious side-effects. A couple of case histories illustrate this tendency to use drugs to exacerbate a problem rather than heal it: A few weeks ago I received a “distress call” on my voicemail. An elderly woman was literally trapped in her attic apartment, unable to get down the 18 stairs to the lift because her knees were “locked,” unable to bend sufficiently to negotiate the stairs. When I visited her I listened to a sorry tale. As her knee joints had started to deteriorate, as is quite common with advancing years, her doctor had prescribed heavy medication. (A holistic approach would have focussed on physiotherapy and dietary therapy, including supplements to reduce inflammation and promote mobility). The aggressive effects of the drugs affected her stomach lining, eventually causing an ulcer which in turn required hospital treatment. By the time she was allowed back on to her feet after eight days in bed, her knees had seized up completely. She showed me two large bags full of various drugs and medications, none of which appeared to be helping her at all. Pain, whether physical or emotional, is a signal from the corporal-emotional response system that something is amiss or out of balance. Chemically suppressing the pain means the warning signal goes unheeded, sometimes for years or even decades, whilst the underlying problem goes unattended and

worsens. A middle-aged man, fit and apparently healthy, started to lose muscle control and power in one arm. A visit to the doctor led to further tests and a few weeks later he was told he had Motor neuron disease, and had eighteen months to three years of life left. When we met he was still in shock, utterly at a loss to understand how his life could have been apparently destroyed in the space of a few short weeks. As we explored his past to find the roots of this devastating condition, it soon became apparent that as a young boy and during his youth, he had spent several years in chronic emotional pain and anger stemming mainly from his family situation and exacerbated by a series of negative school and social experiences. Ignored by his caretakers, his sense of emotional oppression turned into serious depression and the embarking on a life of prescribed drug use (strong anti-depressants) and a long period of “self-medication” with recreational drugs following the familiar trajectory from fairly mild substances to heavier and highly addictive opiates. His organismic system was thus disconnected from the deeper distress signals and their emotional cause and eventually began to reflect and enact this chronic situation by progressively disconnecting the neural-motor pathways. 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. To book a session call 676 346 402, email rwaterborn@eircom.net or see his advert below:

) : a h a h s e k o J 1+2=3 Until a child tells you what they are thinking, we can't even begin to imagine how their mind is working.... Little Zachary was doing very badly in maths. His parents had tried everything... tutors, mentors, flash cards, special learning centres. In short, everything they could think of to help his maths. Finally, in a last ditch effort, they took Zachary down and enrolled him In the local Catholic school. After the first day, little Zachary came home with a very serious look on his face. He didn't even kiss his mother hello. Instead, he went straight to his room and started studying. Books and papers were spread out all over the room and little Zachary was hard at work. His mother was amazed. She called him down to dinner. To her shock, the minute he was done, he marched back to his room without a word, and in no time, he was back hitting the books as hard as before. This went on for some time, day after day, while the mother tried to understand what made all the difference. Finally, little Zachary brought home his Report Card. He quietly laid it on the table, went up to his room and hit the books. With great trepidation, his Mum looked at it and to her great surprise, Little Zachary got an 'A' in maths. She could no longer hold her curiosity. She went to his room and said, 'Son, what was it? Was it the nuns?' Little Zachary looked at her and shook his head, no.. 'Well, then,' she replied, was it the books, the discipline, the structure, the uniforms? WHAT WAS IT?!' Little Zachary looked at her and said, 'Well,

on the first day of school when I saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they weren't fooling around.' ---------------------------------------------------------A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, observing his wife, looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off he asked what she'd like to have for her Birthday. 'I'd like to be twelve again', she replied, still looking in the mirror. On the morning of her Birthday, he arose early, made her a nice big bowl of Coco Pops, and then took her to Alton Towers theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Corkscrew, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Monster Roller Coaster, everything there was. Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down. He then took her to a McDonald's where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake. Then it was off to the cinema with popcorn, a huge Cola, and her favorite sweets...... M&M's. What a fabulous adventure! Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted. He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, 'Well Dear, what was it like being twelve again?' Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed. 'I meant my dress size, you moron!!!!' The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he is gonna get it wrong.

s n g i S r Sta ...With that crazy creature who we all think is a sarnie or two short of a picnic Ms Mystic Mag! Capricorn - Watch out….There's a monkey in the fireplace and he is stealing all your bananas. Lucky sign - Squashed grapes Aquarius - Don't worry about the cheese going mouldy, it can taste better when there's a bit of growth going on. Lucky sign - Rabbit stew Pisces - In life you often feel as if you have taken three steps forward and four back, but this month it's forward all the way to Timbuktu. Lucky sign - Loud grasshoppers Aries - Slippery floors are the burden of your life this month so make sure you wear sensible shoes at all times. Save the heels for that night on the town. Lucky sign - Cigarette butts Taurus - Eat as many foods as possible this month which begin with the letter C, with the exception of Carrots and Cabbage. Lucky sign - Selling sea shells on the sea shore Gemini - Watch how long your rubbish is sitting around as you could well have an outbreak of fruit flies invading your home. Lucky sign - An encyclopedia of health terminology Cancer - Where did you hide the rolling pin?

Tell, or else you'll be one sorry sausage. Lucky sign - A cat with no purrrr Leo - This month you will have an unusual amount of nightmares about giant spiders capturing you in their web and eating you, but don't worry too much as you always wake up. Lucky sign - Jumping Jack Flash Virgo - Get a job. Get a house. Get a TV. Get a personality. Get a life. Lucky sign - A narrow bridge Libra - Direction is your middle name throughout September, so show as many people the way as you can and the karma will soon take effect.

Lucky sign - A secret meeting in a secret location with a hunk or babe Sagittarius - La lah le a lah de doh fah laaaah - this month you just can't help but spontaneously combust into song at any opportunity. Lucky sign - The Monopoly 'iron' If it’s your Birthday this month... Then you'll be very disappointed that all your friends and rellies forget and you will have no presents, no party, no cake and no celebrations at all. This is because noone likes you.
