A few months ago this editorial described how I had packed up my apartment ready to move despite not having anywhere to move to! Well I’m delighted to announce that the exercise worked and magic happened, regardless of whether or not I decide to take the opportunity. A couple of weeks back I met one of my editing book clients. She asked me if I had found anywhere to move yet and I shook my head feeling slightly frustrated that the Universe still hadn’t answered my request. My client looked at me. “Well,” she said. “How would you like to housesit for us? We’re moving to Bahrain and you can live there for free for as long as you like, plus we’ll cover all the bills and even pay you each day to look after our cat.” Suddenly the world stopped spinning. I glanced from her to her husband and then back again, thinking that any second one of them would say, “Only kidding.” But neither of them did. Instead they told me all about their beautiful villa in the countryside of Malaga, which has its own pool and a lovely conservatory and office. My heart thumped harder in my chest and my palms began to sweat as I realised they were being completely serious. Two days later I was on my way to check out this ‘miracle offering.’ I did get a little lost finding it (normal for me and my not-so-hot navigation skills) but finally I pulled up outside an electronic gate which opened to reveal a delightful house with an inviting swimming pool in the garden. The door opened to a courtyard leading into the spacious lounge. I was shown around the two en-suite bedrooms, the conservatory, the office, the kitchen… and by now I was literally jumping up and down with sheer excitement.

From The Ed (cont)

Strange News

the exercise of packing all my things into boxes (to show the Universe that I’m ready) I didn’t have to put any effort into finding a new abode. And when we understand the law of attraction, that’s exactly how things should happen.

Deer shunter - Kind-hearted driver Karl Weiss went all doe-eyed when he knocked down a wild deer and drove its body to a police station to report the accident…. that was until the 'dead' deer returned to life on the back seat of his car and nearly caused him to crash.

Just like God, we are all powerful Creators. We can manifest anything. So today decide one thing you would like to manifest into your life then ask out loud for the Universe to bring it to you (that part is key because as the saying goes, if we don’t ask we don’t get.) Once you have asked, do something to show the Universe you are prepared for the thing to come into your life; act as if it is already on its way, just like I did with packing all my possessions into boxes, ready to move. Then get on with your life as usual, stay happy and positive, drop the thought of whatever you want and allow the miracle to unfold.

Weiss, 67 - from Peine, Germany - explained: "It turned out the deer had just been shocked, but not half as shocked as I was when it started jumping around in the back of my car! "The deer was uninjured but my car was left in a right mess," he added. A police spokesman explained: "He was right to report what he thought was the death of a wild animal, but very few people bring the bodies with them. It turned out the deer was even more wild when it woke up."

I’m on the brink of making a decision about whether to move into this house or not and regardless of whether I do or I don’t, my moving out exercise has still proven to work.

Cool Cow - Firefighters in Bellinzona, Switzerland, had to rescue an overenthusiastic heifer when she plunged into a swimming pool to cool off during a heatwave.

May the Universe pour its blessings unto you throughout the rest of September and beyond!

"We were watching the Olympics when we heard his tremendous splash, so we went out to the garden and we couldn't quite believe what we saw," the family told firefighters.

Rescuers spent two hours winching he trapped cow back onto dry land before returning her to her field. airfix aston - A life-size 'Airfix'style artwork of a 1959 Le Mans winning Aston Martin is set to go under the hammer. The artwork, measuring 6.35m wide by 3.3m tall, represents a life-sized model of the Aston Martin DBR1 that won the 1959 Le Mans 24-Hour Endurance Race, broken up into kit form and fixed to a frame in the style of the famous 'Airfix' models built by many in childhood. Hand-made by the Hertfordshire-based Evanta Motor Company as a tribute to that race victory - considered the finest in Aston Martin's history - the impressive 1:1 scale model is constructed with the finest attention to detail. The estimated sale value is between £20,00025,000.

Funnies :) Little boy at the nudist beach. A mother and father take their 6-year old son to a nudist beach. As the boy walks along the sand, he notices that many of the women have boobs bigger than his mother's, so he goes back to ask her why. She tells her son, 'The bigger they are, the sillier the lady is.' The boy, pleased with the answer, goes to play in the ocean but returns to tell his mother that many of the men have larger things than his dad does. She replies, 'The bigger they are, the dumber the man is' Again satisfied with her answer, the boy goes back to the ocean to play. Shortly thereafter, the boy returns and promptly tells his mother, 'Daddy is talking to the silliest lady on the beach, and the longer he talks, the dumber he gets.' ------------------------------------------------------------Paddy’s in the bathroom and Murphy shouts to him, “Did you find the shampoo?” Paddy says, “Yes but it’s for dry hair and I’ve just wet mine.” ------------------------------------------------------------Paddy says to Mick, “Christmas is on a Friday this year.” Mick says, “Lets hope it’s not the 13th.”

De Cotta Law Bank guarantees — more protection for buyers’ deposits by Reyes Gomez Llorente - Lawyer with De Cotta Law It may come as a surprise that there has been a law since 1968 which regulates advance payments to builders and constructors when buying off plan and properties under construction. This obliges the builder and constructor to offer bank guarantees or insurance as warranties for buyers who pay deposits towards the final price of a home.

where buyers did not receive their certificates, either because the developer kept them, they were never delivered or because the banks never issued them. These certificates are essential for buyers who wish to make a claim against a developer who has become insolvent or failed to construct the promised property. When the buyer has the individual certificate which guarantees the deposits made, any claim should normally be straightforward.

Dedicated account - This was achieved by banks (or insurance companies) giving an overall guarantee for the construction of an entire housing development. An agreement was signed which obliged the developer to deposit any monies paid by buyers into a special dedicated account.

However, it is a very different case when the buyer does not have it. Banks consistently refuse to fulfil their assumed responsibility and in addition, even if the buyer has the certificate, it is of little value if the developer has not fulfilled his obligation to pay the buyer’s money into the special dedicated account.

The developer had to issue individual certificates for each deposit, guaranteeing these specific amounts including interest.

Helplessness - This issue has therefore left many buyers helpless, but fortunately, in a number of recent decisions, Spanish courts are realising that the issue of the developer not lodging the money in the dedicated account cannot be binding on the purchaser. This means more protection for purchasers in these situations.

Certificates not issued - Yet despite this system being in place, there are numerous cases

The constitution of the guarantee is a private contract between the bank and the developer, therefore the buyer is a third party to the contractual relationship. The buyer, who is the beneficiary of the guarantee, should not suffer the consequences of the developer failing to comply with his obligations. Bank obligation - The court now considers that although the promoter is responsible for paying deposits into the special dedicated accounts, the bank also has a duty and responsibility to see that the developer meets this obligation. If they have not, then there is some degree of negligence on the banks’ part for not requiring the developer to comply. Although there have been many judgements in the past that have ruled against the buyer, it is possible to claim against the banks, and it does open up a new door to many disgruntled and frankly justifiably frustrated purchasers. Although chasing Spanish banks for money now may seem Quixotic, it is worth seeking legal advice on your situation.

Orange is the Netherlands' national colour, dating back to the Dutch War of Independence and the rebel Prince of Orange. Its royal family owns the principality of Orange. The nickname of the Dutch National Soccer team is Oranje, the Dutch word for "orange."

Orange, a close relative of red, sparks more controversy than any other colour. There is usually strong positive or negative association to orange, and true orange generally elicits a stronger "love it" or "hate it" response than other colours.

The interior dash lights on older model Suburu cars were orange.

s r u o Col

The colour orange is said to stimulate activity and appetite, and encourage socialisation American Indians associate the colour orange with kinship.

In China and Japan, orange is used to symbolise happiness and love. Orange is representative of gluttony in Christianity.

If you buy an orangecoloured vehicle, it is said the message you send is that you are funloving, talkative, fickle and trendy. In the garden, orange is considered a warm colour in landscape design. Orange flowers visually come forward in the landscape, helping to make a large garden feel cosier. Its complementary colour in the garden is blue.

LÍNEa DirECta aDVisEs yOU hOw tO aCt iN CasE OF aN aCCiDENt Línea Directa insurance advises you of the steps to follow in case of a road accident in spain. 1. Call the emergency number: 112. They will co-ordinate the procedure and will ask you in detail about the circumstances of the accident. 2. Remain calm at all times. Switch on the emergency lights and if the state of the vehicle permits, remove the vehicle from the road, in order to avoid delays and further accidents, to the extent possible. 3. Signal the accident location. Before stepping out of the car, put on your high-visibility jacket, which is compulsory, and place the emergency triangles correctly. The first must be placed about 50 metres behind the car in the direction of the traffic, and the second about 100 metres. 4. If someone is seriously injured, never try to move them, except if in danger of fire or imminent explosion. Cover the injured person, keep them calm and wait for the emergency services to arrive. 5. If the circumstances of the location allow, always fill in the European accident report, which is an essential document for speeding up the procedures and handling between the insurance companies. If you have any doubt about how to do this, don’t hesitate to call your insurance company.

2 Different Doctors’ Offices

Inspiration

Boy, if this doesn't hit the nail on the head, I don't know what does!

The importance of having an occupation after retirement.

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint. Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.

As we get older we sometimes begin to doubt our ability to "make a difference" in the world. It is at these times that our hopes are boosted by the remarkable achievements of other "seniors" who have found the courage to take on challenges that would make many of us wither.

The first patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week. The second sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then.

Harold Schaumberg is such a person: This is quoted from Harold

..... the SECOND is a Senior Citizen.

"I've often been asked, 'What do you do now that you're retired?' Well... I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background and one of the things I enjoy most is converting beer, wine and whisky into urine. It's rewarding, uplifting, satisfying and fulfilling. I do it every day and I really enjoy it."

Next time take me to a vet!

I have now taken up this profession too!

Why the different treatment for the two patients? ..... the FIRST is a Golden Retriever.

Famous Drink Quotes Speaking about all good things alcoholic..

you.

Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink I feel shame. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this wine, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, “It is better that I drink this wine and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.” Jack Handy WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may leave you wondering what the hell happened to your bra and panties.

“24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.” stephen wright warNiNg: The consumption of alcohol may cause you to think you can sing.

“I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.” Frank Sinatra WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may create the illusion that you are tougher, smarter, faster and better looking than most people.

“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” Benjamin Franklin WARNING: The consumption of alcohol is a major factor in dancing like a wally.

“When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.” Henny Youngman WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may lead you to think people are laughing WITH

“When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let's all get drunk and go to heaven!” Brian O'Rourke WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may cause pregnancy.

To some it's a six-pack, to me it's a Support Group. Salvation in a can! Dave Howell WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may make you think you can logically converse with members of the opposite sex without spitting.

They navigate by smell, taste with their feet and listen with their legs. Their “brains” are in their throats, and their teeth are in their stomachs. They will eat each other in a pinch. Among other things, lobsters eat crabs, sea stars, sea urchins. They are not by nature cannibalistic, except when held in crowded condi-

tions They can “throw a claw”, meaning discharge it from their body and grow a brand new one. Lobsters moult (shed their shells) to grow. They secrete enzymes that soften the shell and connective shell joints. The shell splits up the back and the creature backs out, leaving it the behind...including membrane that covered the eyes. They will increase their size by about 20% at every moult. By the time a lobster is of legal size, it will have moulted about 20-25 times, averaging 4-5 moults a year. They often eat their old shell which will replenish the lost calcium and speed up the hardening of the new shell. It takes about 6 to 8

Amazing Marine Life (Continued) weeks before their new shell is hard enough for lobsters to be able to protect themselves against their natural enemies. While they are soft and fragile, they will bury themselves in the mud or under hide rocks. A female carries her egg on swimher and merets, depending on water temperatures, the eggs will remain atfor tached about a year average. on Out of 10,000 eggs laid, it is estimated that only 10 lobsters will survive to maturity. To determine their approximate age, multiply

their weight x 4 and add three! They come in almost every colour but red — except when they are cooked, when they all become red! Long before they were a delicacy, lobsters were fed to prisoners and servants. The law limited the number of days lobster could be fed to prisoners before it became abuse. A female lobster is called a “hen”. A male is a “cock”, a little guy is a “chicken.” A “pistol” lobster has no claws, and a “cull” has just one. There are two kinds of lobsters, the "true" lobster (also called American lobster) and the spiny lobster. The true lobster has claws on the first four legs, lacking in the spiny lobster. The spiny lobster has a pair of horns above the eyes, and two large cream-colored spots on the top of the second segment of the tail. The normal life span is about 15 years. Lobsters can grow to be 3 feet long in overall body length.

How Old Is Grandma ? Scary Mary!! One evening a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current events. The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general..

and a Pepsi were a nickel. And if you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to send 1 letter and 2 postcards. You could buy a new Ford Coupe for $600, but who could afford one? Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.

In my day: "grass" was mowed, "coke" was a cold drink, "pot" was something The Grandmother replied, $600? your mother cooked in and "rock music" "Well, let me think a minute, I was your grandmother's lullaby. "Aids" was born before: television, penicillin, polio were helpers in the Principal's office, "chip" shots, frozen foods, Xerox, contact lenses, frismeant a piece of wood, "hardware" was found bees and the pill. in a hardware store and "software" wasn't even a word. There were no: credit cards, laser beams or ball-point pens. Man had not invented: air conAnd we were the last generation to actually beditioners, dishwashers, clothes dryers and the lieve that a lady needed a husband to have a clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and baby. No wonder people call us "old and conman hadn't yet walked on the moon. fused" and say there is a generation gap. Your Grandfather and I got married first and then lived together. Every family had a father and a mother. Until I was 25, I called every man older than me, "Sir". And after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title, "Sir." We were before gay-rights, computerdating, dual careers, daycare centres and group therapy. Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment and common sense. We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions. Serving your country was a privilege; living in England was a bigger privilege. We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent. Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins. Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze started. Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends not purchasing condominiums. We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings. We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President's speeches on our radios. And I don't ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey. If you saw anything with 'Made in Japan ' on it, it was junk. The term 'making out' referred to how you did on your school exam. Pizza Hut, McDonald's, and instant coffee were unheard of. We had 5 & 10 cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents. Icecream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar,

how old do you think i am? I bet you have this old lady in mind.... you are in for a shock! This woman would be only 61 years old!!

Bar Atila - First Year Anniversary The Colour Purple

here’s a reminder.

This is a month of celebration at Bar Atila! On 1st September, owners Nicky and Kim would have been there one year and at the end of the month it´s both Nicky and Chrissy’s birthdays. How quickly one year has flown by since they took over. Straight away, they softened the interior, added comfy seating and bravely turned it purple to make the bar warm and welcoming. Since then they have gone from strength to strength, concentrating their efforts on providing good, home-cooked English “pub grub” in a warm, cozy environment. Their ‘cod and chips’ and ‘pan-fried liver and bacon’ are the ´talk of the town´! There is a good variety on the menu and there is always an ever-changing specials board of home-cooked food.

Checkout their Facebook group “Bar Atila – Puente don Manuel” for lots more pictures and regular updates on forthcoming events and offers!

They have also tried to provide lots of entertainment for their customers with bingo on Mondays, a very successful quiz on Tuesdays (booking advisable) and a host of parties and events throughout the year. They celebrated Halloween, Burn´s Night, St.Patricks, the Jubilee and many others. Who can forget Nicky and Chrissy as the Cheeky Girls at their New Year´s Eve Party! … and if you have forgotten,

More recently, they have concentrated their efforts on the garden with reforming, replanting and the introduction of a skittles lane. The skittles lane is available for any of their customers to use free of charge, subject to availability, and is also available for party bookings combined with a good value meal prepared by Nicky and scoring and commentary from Kim. I’m sure the next year will be just as much fun as the last. They are really looking forward to it and have lots more ideas. Don’t forget they have a “One Year Here” party on 1st September and a birthday party for Nicky and Chrissy on 28th September (all welcome). Cheers!

The Word Queen Below I’ve listed five vital tips to a successful book publicity campaign… I suggest that you include as many of them as possible into your own marketing plan and that way you’ll sell lots of copies! There are five more to come next month.

who is likely to buy your book. The more focused you are when it comes to marketing your book, the better your results will be. If your book is quite mainstream, begin with a smaller audience and broaden your focus after you’ve saturated the first audience.

1. Take no for an answer. It can be frustrating when certain media bodies aren’t interested in your book, but always thank them for their time and move on. If you try and argue with them you’ll leave a bad impression and your chances of working with them in the future will be slim.

5. Ask friends, colleagues, or anyone who likes your book to place reviews on Amazon. Amazon is highly influential and the reviews count for a lot, so encourage anyone who says they enjoyed your book to place a review. If there are a lot of reviews on Amazon (preferably four or five star reviews) other people who are interested in buying your book will be encouraged to order it.

2. Start immediately! A book publicity campaign works best if it’s started six months prior to your books publication date. Begin publicising your story to mainstream and industry media way before your book’s release, and target consumers once it is available to order.

Love & LightThe Word Queen xx See main advert on page 102

3. Create a press kit. Before you begin promoting your book prepare a press kit, including a cover letter, press release, author bio, Q&A page, sample interview questions, and articles. 4. Know your target audience. Identify exactly

Solar Shade - Professional Window Tinting How can we enjoy the sunshine and keep cool without spending a fortune? Solar Control Window Film — supplied and fitted by Solar Shade to glass curtains, glazed balconies, conservatories, windows, cars and yachts — that’s how! Really, anywhere there's glass, that's where we can stick it! what does solar Control film do? As the name suggests, it controls the heat build-up from the sun, preventing too much from entering the room through the glazing. This makes for a comfortable living temperature — reducing 40+ celsius to 25-27 celsius so that air conditioning doesn't have to work so hard, thus saving money. The other unique aspect is that it will retain winter heat too, by insulating the glass and so upgrading older glass to current energy standards. No, you won't lose the warming effect of the winter sun during those cold but bright Andalucian winters, because the light wavelength changes due to the angle of the sun, and so heat passes through the film. However, the film also disperses excessive glare so that you can still see the TV, laptop, etc at that time of year — clever stuff! It also provides a safety feature by holding bro-

ken glass together in the event of an accident — for instance older single-glazed glass is made safe, especially in areas of constant use by children. It comes in many different colours and shades, such as silver, bronze, blue, green, black etc and once installed, is maintenance-free. It also adds privacy to your home, office, vehicle or yacht; practically removes fading and will enhance the overall aesthetic appearance of your glazing. The tinted film can also be supplied as a solar blind if you want the flexibility of solely seasonal use. It comes as a roller blind which can be lowered to whatever position is needed in order to reflect glare, or it can be pulled down to cover the whole window to prevent heat from coming in — or in the winter months, from escaping — while still giving you that all-important view and insulating the window in winter. So go on — improve your living environment and make living in the sun truly comfortable. If you'd like to know more, email solarshadetinting@gmail.com or give us a call on 902 888 176 or 644 546 176 and ask to speak to Ian see our advert opposite.

El Septimo Cielo (Seventh Heaven)

A trip to ‘Seventh Heaven’

El Septimo Cielo is a predominately rural bed and breakfast, but one with a very big difference. For many years, proprietors Els and Frank, along with daughter Mayté, have been offering discerning guests a whole range of activities to run alongside their bed and breakfast business, one of which is quad bike adventure tours. Frank is very quick to point out that this is not a jumping, climbing, speeding and altogether dangerous adventure, but more of a fun day in the countryside — off road, of course, but safe. It is not without its excitement, though — far from it — but at no time did we feel unsafe or out of our comfort zone. The quad bikes we were travelling on were fantastic machines that gave us the best experience possible. Our route took us through some of the most spectacular inland scenery. We rode for three hours, including several short stops for photos. When we did arrive back, a

welcome drink was waiting for us in the “Jungle Marquee” and we opted for a lunch too — this is also a restaurant and bar with a difference. You must reserve a table in advance as walkin bookings are not available. We had selected the house special gourmet lunch which is three courses. There are appetisers to start, and to follow you have a selection of fresh meats and vegetables to cook yourself on the hot plates in the centre of the table. Dessert was a fabulous chocolate and fruit fondue with the finest Belgian chocolate. Again, the style of dining is pleasant, relaxed and the whole family is involved in the fun aspect of cooking and dining — all at a fantastic price! The kids even finished off their afternoon playing 18 holes of crazy golf set in the gardens of El Séptimo Cielo. Seventh Heaven.. absolutely!

Iznate with the fact that they wipe the leaves with beer! Just a short drive up from the autovia and only a 10 minute drive from the coast is the mountainous village of Iznate. It nestles into the hillside at 303 metres above sea level and has the most incredible views to the north, east and west, with the mountain ranges of Sierra Tejeda (La Maroma) Sierra Almijara and Sierra de Camarolos marking the horizon, majestically towering over the lower vine covered hills. This area is famous for its scrumptious muscatel grapes from which come delicious wines and raisins and every August the village holds a festival to celebrate this main form of economy. As well as grapes there are local dishes to be sampled with music, dancing and lots of wine flowing all night long. Like many villages in the Axarquía Iznate is full of narrow, steep streets and the houses literally cling together in a tight cluster. Eight centuries of Islamic occupation have shaped the architecture. Some of the streets have steps and others are just very steep inclines which seem almost impossible to ascend. Actually going up is not the hardest part providing you stop for breath occassionaly! It’s going down again that’s the scary part as it’s easy to slither and slide! Many houses have beautiful patios with a plethora of colours spilling over the assorted terracotta pots, there are balconies filled with plants of every shade of green imaginable. The women of the village all seem to have green fingers or perhaps it’s something to do

Property Of The Month

There are three ways into the village, coming up from Benamocarra there is an entrance by the village garden complete with sturdy gym equipment put there to entice the villagers to exercise. Following on from here is the long main square with the town hall, several bars and a mirador with fantastic views. A steep street leads up to the church square, the Plaza de la Virgen de los Dolores, with the 16th century parish church of San Gregorio Vll and the Fuente de la Palsonada which has a little shield and two spouts, part of the towns architectural heritage. The second way in to the village is by taking the road up from Cajiz and after the Iznate sign there is an entrance which takes you down past the municipal swimming pool and the third way is up the street concrete track from the river bed. You can drive quite easily along the dry river bed from Benamocarra village, or beyond to Triana, Almachar and Benamargosa. For several years around 1570 the village was practically uninhabited with the expulsion of the moriscos (moslem converts to Christianity) who left for Tunisia and North Africa. The new inhabitants arrived from Antequera and Estepa but the economy was ruined with the outbreak of a phylloxera plague followed by the Andalusian Earthquake. These days Iznate is a busy, thriving village full of a good mixture of all nationalities rubbing along nicely together. If you go for a visit be sure to wear good walking shoes, take a bottle of water and don´t forget your camera!

La Vaqueria New opening hours at La Vaqueria, Benamargosa. Welcome back! La Vaqueria arts and crafts centre has been closed for the whole of August so we are now back, fully rested with restored enthusiasm, to make your visit as enjoyable as possible, starting with new opening hours and a Curry night planned for Saturday 15th Sept (details on main advert) Quite literally, La Vaqueria means cowshed and artist Su Derrick has spent the last six years turning a ramshackle collection of old farm sheds into a colourful and inviting arts, crafts and souvenir shop and café. Whether you are looking for a particular gift or house or garden accessory, La Vaqueria’s delightful range of hand-painted and handmade crafts offers something for all tastes, many of which may be personalised for that extra special touch. From Trapiche at El Cruz bar/restaurant, follow the valley in the direction of Rio Gordo, winding your way through citrus groves, mangoes and avocados before arriving in the centre of Benamargosa. La Vaqueria is clearly marked

by a large sign at the bottom of the road, C/Arroyo Limon, and you simply continue until you see the blue wall with the overhanging avocados on your right hand side. (You are almost at the edge of the village at this stage, so do not be alarmed if you can see the campo looming – it is concrete road to the door and there is plenty of parking!) Enjoy home-made cake, traditional ploughman’s lunches, snacks or a full English Vaquería breakfast in the shaded garden or air-conditioned/heated interior. Browse the fine selection of paintings by Su and other local artists, or take a peek into the new mosaic workshops where we have individual tiles for sale as well as finished pieces. WE ARE NOW OPEN: TUES – FRI 10am-7pm AND SATURDAY MORNINGS 10am–3pm. See main advert for contact details and follow us on: Facebook/lavaqueriabenamargosa for up-to-date information on all our forthcoming events.

Random Joke :)

$$$ Share’oscope $$$

I was in a pub last Saturday night, and drank a few, and noticed two very large women by the bar. They both had pretty strong accents, so I asked, "Hey are you two ladies from Ireland?" One of them chirped saying, "It's WALES, you friggin' idiot!" So, I immediately apologised and said, "I'm sorry. Are you two whales from Ireland?" That's pretty much the last thing I remember........ -------------------------------------------------------------A little boy walks into his parents' room to see his mum on top of his dad bouncing up and down. The mum sees her son and quickly dismounts, worried about what her son has seen. She dresses quickly and goes to find him. The son sees his mum and asks, 'What were you and dad doing?' The mother replies, 'Well, you know your dad has a big tummy and sometimes I have to get on top of it and help flatten it...' 'Your wasting your time,' said the boy. 'Why is that?' the mum asked puzzled. 'Well when you go shopping the lady next door comes over and gets on her knees and blows it right back up.'

Profile Full Name: Kate Elizabeth Winslet CBE Birthday: 5th October 1975 age: 38 sign: Cancer Birthplace: Reading, Berkshire Marital status: Married cameraman-turneddirector Jim Threapleton 1998; divorced 2001; married director Sam Mendes 2003, divorced 2010 Children: Mia Honey, born 2000; Joe Alfie, born 2003 Occupation: Actress Claim to fame: Titanic Film Her father, Roger, was in the arty pop punk group Bidgie Reef and The Gas, who have supported Pete Doherty’s group Babyshambles. Kate began studying drama at the age of 11 at the Redroofs Theatre School, a co-educational independent school in Maidenhead, Berkshire, where she was head girl. Her first big acting role was in a Sugar Puffs advert, at the age of 12. It was directed by filmmaker Tim Pope. Kate’s ‘proper’ career began on television in 1991, with a co-starring role in the BBC children's science fiction serial Dark Season.

In 1996, she begged and pleaded with director James Cameron for the role of ‘Rose’ in Titanic, until he finally gave in. Gwyneth Paltrow, Claire Danes, and Gabrielle Anwar had been considered for the role. She was the youngest person to accrue six Academy Award nominations, and won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role as a former Nazi concentration camp guard in The Reader (2008). She also made headlines in this film for refusing to wear a ‘merkin’ (pubic wig) for her nude scenes. She was selected for a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame this year. Kate’s husband Sam Mendes was scheduled to fly on American Airlines Flight 77, which was hijacked on 11th September 2001 and subsequently crashed into the Pentagon. The following month, she was on a flight with her daughter, Mia, when a passenger who claimed to be a terrorist stood up and shouted, "We are all going to die". As a result of these incidents, Kate and Sam never flew together on the same aircraft, as they feared leaving their children parentless. Kate used to be bullied for being overweight and having massive feet. She was one of the first — and major — actresses to encourage women not to allow Hollywood or television to dictate their weight or appearance. She made GQ magazine issue an apology in 2003 after they printed pictures of her that were digitallyaltered without her consent, and won a libel suit in 2009 against The Daily Mail after it printed that she had lied about her exercise regime.

LT Construction garden. Steps, of course, give access to different levels within the garden and make them more usable.

Step into your garden Garden steps have a practical use but should also be beautiful and elegant. At best, they act as an inviting conduit, seducing you up or down to whatever is beyond, but at worst, they can be dangerous. Badly designed steps create a psychological barrier, making you feel they are too much of an effort to bother with unless you have no choice. There are three main things to remember when designing and building steps: where they are to go; how and from what materials they will be built and how they are to be tied in with any walls, paths or terracing. Where they go will dictate the way you want to move through the

You could also arrange each set at an angle or incorporate a twist into the step design. This approach creates an important flow and sense of informality, and makes you walk through — and use — the whole of the space. Wherever steps go, walls will usually be built too, as the soil on each side will need to be retained to stop the bank from collapsing. Plants can help soften these junctures by spilling over the edges. We always look for innovative ways in which steps and walls can increase the practicality and usability of the garden. We encourage you to view your garden steps as more than just a boring outdoor staircase, and to approach them from a different angle. Call LT Construction today to discuss how we can make your garden both attractive and accessible, and visit our website to see our wide range of examples. See main advert below

Restaurant “The Garden” - Viñuela 'Estupendo' Sunday at “The Garden” I woke up one Sunday morning and fancied a roast dinner. I knew I had work to do in the Puente don Manuel area, so I booked a table at "The Garden" restaurant near Hotel Viñuela. It was an extremely hot day as usual, but when I entered the restaurant - WOW!! Beautifully air conditioned! We were greeted by the very bubbly waitress Natalie, who was very chirpy throughout the meal. We were shown to our table, we gave our drinks order and then just relaxed in the cool and very inviting eaterie. Usually for three-course Sunday lunches, the norm is a choice of three starters and one or two desserts, but I was indeed shocked when Natalie reeled off a selection of nine starters! These included a couple of salads, hot or cold soup, melon and ham, garlic mushrooms, prawn cocktail and Queen's eggs (which are eggs topped with prawns, mayonnaise and caviar). This was my choice and they were absolutely fantastic. My wife picked the delicious garlic mushrooms served with a small salad. For mains, there was a choice of meat: chicken, beef or pork, or a selection of two

meats, served with roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and get this — FIVE vegetables, all accompanied by the relevant sauces and an abundance of gravy. My "significant other" and the children had chicken served with stuffing and I had the pork with crackling. There was ample on the plates before the separate dish of veggies came out — this was indeed a feast! The meats were succulent and moist; potatoes crisp on the outside and fluffy in the middle and the vegetables cooked to perfection. The kids gobbled it up with gusto — as did we all. We were offered a nice break before desserts because as per usual, I had eaten too much and was quite full. The dessert selection — six of them — was apple pie, apple crumble, lemon torte, pannecotta, chocolate fudge cake or ice cream. The overwhelming choice was chocolate — estupendo!! I asked my two children, aged seven and four, for their thoughts and the four-year-old said "Mmmmmmmm, thank you!" The seven-yearold’s verdict was, "My dinner was perfect, it was ‘goodly’ presented and tasted very nice; you should all come here because the people are very nice — thank you!" I need say no more!

Film iew RevTed The tale of a boy and his sentient stuffed bear, Ted takes the classic mold of a '50s comedy and stuffs it full of MacFarlane's signature foulmouthed humour. The result is sweet, sick and satisfyingly simple. For a movie about a talking toy with a drug, alcohol and sex problem, Ted is surprisingly low concept. Avoiding the over-explanatory storytelling pitfalls of most deranged comedies, Ted cuts to the chase. When John (Mark Wahlberg) was a kid, he wished for his teddy bear to come to life. Unexpectedly, Ted (voiced by MacFarlane) did come to life, dedicating himself to becoming

John's best buddy forever. Integrating into the real world with the utmost ease (albeit finding momentary fame for being "that toy that came to life"), Ted and John's friendship seldom hits a bump, even when the human half of the pair finds love with Lori (Mila Kunis). The biggest hurdle comes four years into the couple's relationship: Lori feels the urge to settle down; John is waiting to move up the ranks of his dead end rental car job; Ted just wants to smoke pot and watch more Cheers DVD commentaries with John. Surrounding the main trio are a handful of great comedic actors and famous cameos with Joel McHale hitting new levels of creepiness as Lori's sexually harassing boss. Ted's script feels less confident summing the movie up in big summer style, but the whole package is a fun romp that delivers on laughs. Ted is stuffed with smiles and booze; see, sometimes wishes do come true. Star Rating - **/*****

Random Jokes A young ventriloquist is touring Sweden and one night, he's doing a show in a small fishing town. With his dummy on his knee, he starts going through his usual dumb blonde jokes. Suddenly, a blonde woman in the fourth row stands on her chair and starts shouting, "I've heard enough of your stupid blonde jokes. What makes you think you can stereotype Swedish blonde women that way? What does the colour of a woman's hair have to do with her worth as a human being? It's men like you who keep women like me from being respected at work and in the community and from reaching our full potential as people. Its people like you that make others think that all blondes are dumb! You and your kind continue to perpetuate discrimination against not only blondes, but women in general...pathetically all in the name of humour! The embarrassed ventriloquist begins to apologise and the blonde yells: "You stay out of this! I'm talking to that little s*** on your lap." ------------------------------------------------------------I was visiting my daughter and son-in-law last night when I asked if I could borrow a newspa-

per. 'This is the 21st century, Mum', she said. 'We don't waste money on newspapers. Here, you can borrow the iPad.' I tell you, that fly never knew what hit it! ------------------------------------------------------------Paddy is doing some roofing work for Murphy He nears the top of the ladder and starts shaking and going dizzy. He calls down to Murphy and says "I tink I will ave to go home, I've come all over giddy and feel sick." Murphy asks "Ave yer got vertigo?" Paddy replies "No I only live round the corner." ------------------------------------------------------------Paddy thought his new girlfriend might be the one but after looking through her knicker drawer and finding a nurse's outfit, a French maids outfit, and a police womans uniform, he finally decided if she can't hold down a job, she's not for him. ------------------------------------------------------------I got a letter from Screw Fix Direct thanking me for my interest, but explaining they were not a dating agency...

Phil has been with the band since its' formation and his singing and guitar playing have made a huge contribution to the overall sound of the group. He will be much missed and we would like to take this opportunity to wish him success in his future ventures. He is, and will always remain, a good friend. A farewell gig will be played in the main square in Competa (Plaza Almijara) on Sat 29th Sept. We hope as many of our loyal supporters as possible will come along to give Phil a good send off. Mitch and Roger will continue with Acoustic Roots and will be back next Summer Season with a re-jigged set, including new numbers, but we will keep the same musical format and presentation that has proved so popular in the past five years.

) : a h a h s e k o J A Sheriff in a small town in Montana walks out in the street and sees a blond haired cowboy coming toward him with nothing on but his cowboy hat, his gun and his boots. He arrests him for indecent exposure. As he is locking him up, he asks 'Why in the world are you walking around like this?' The cowboy says, 'Well it's like this Sheriff, I was in this bar down the road and this pretty little red head asks me to go out to her motorhome with her. So I did. We go inside and she pulls off her top and asks me to pull off my shirt.... So I did. Then she pulls off her skirt and asks me to pull off my pants..... So I did. Then she pulls off her panties and asks me to pull off my shorts.... So I did. Then she gets on the bed and looks at me kind of sexy and says, 'Now go to town cowboy. 'And here I am.' Son of a Gun. Blond Men do exist! --------------------------------------------------------------I was standing in a bar in Barcelona minding my own business when this little Chinese guy comes in and stands next to me. I turned and said to him, “Do you know any of those martial arts things, like Kung-Fu, Karate or Ju-Jitsu?” He says “No, why the fluck you ask me? Coz I Chineez?” “No,” I said to him, "It’s because your drinking my beer, you little s***." --------------------------------------------------------------A DEA officer stopped at a ranch in Texas, and talked with an old rancher. He told the rancher, "I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs." The rancher said, "Okay, but don't go in that field over there.....", as he pointed out the location. The DEA officer verbally exploded saying, "Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me!" Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removed his badge and proudly displayed it to the rancher. "See this badge?! This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish.... On any

land!! No questions asked or answers given!! Have I made myself clear......do you understand ?!!" The rancher nodded politely, apologised, and went about his chores. A short time later, the old rancher heard loud screams, looked up, and saw the DEA officer running for his life, being chased by the rancher's big Santa Gertrudis bull...... With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it seemed likely that he'd sure enough get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified. The rancher threw down his tools, ran to the fence and yelled at the top of his lungs..... "Your badge, show him your f******' BADGE........ ! !" --------------------------------------------------------------A drunk man who smelled like beer sat down on a subway next to a priest. The man's tie was stained, his face was plastered with red lipstick, and a half-empty bottle of gin was sticking out of his torn coat pocket. He opened his newspaper and began reading. After a few minutes the man turned to the priest and asked, "Say Father, what causes arthritis?" The priest replies, "My Son, it's caused by loose living, being with cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol, contempt for your fellow man, sleeping around with prostitutes and lack of a bath." The drunk muttered in response, "Well, I'll be damned," Then returned to his paper. The priest, thinking about what he had said, nudged the man and apologised. "I'm very sorry. I didn't mean to come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?" The drunk answered, "I don't have it, Father. I was just reading here that the Pope does." --------------------------------------------------------------A bloke at a horse race whispers to Paddy, "Do you want the winner of the next race?" Paddy replies "No tanks, I've only got a small garden." --------------------------------------------------------------A coach load of paddys on a mystery tour decided to run a sweepstake to guess where they were going. ... The driver won £52!

Jokes h a h a :) An Irishman was walking home late at night and sees a woman in the dark shadows. 'Twenty pounds,' she whispers Murphy had never been with a hooker before, but decides what the hell, it's only twenty pounds. So they hid in the bushes. They're going 'at it' for a minute when all of a sudden a light flashes on them. It is a Police Officer. 'What's going on here, people?' asks the cop. 'I'm making love to me wife,' Paddy answers sounding annoyed. 'Oh, I'm sorry,' says the cop, 'I didn't know.' 'Well, neidder did I, til ya shined that bloody light in her face!' ------------------------------------------------------------A woman takes her 16-year-old daughter to the doctor. The doctor says "Okay, Mrs. Jones, what's the problem?" The mother says, "It's my daughter, Debbie. She keeps getting these cravings. She's putting on weight, and is sick most mornings." The doctor gives Debbie a good examination, then turns to the mother and says, - "Well, I don't know how to tell you this, but your daughter is pregnant - about 4 months, would be my guess." The mother says, "Pregnant?! She can't be. She has never ever been with a man! Have you Debbie?" Debbie says, "No mother! I've never even kissed a man, I'm still a virgin!" The doctor walked over to the window and just stood there staring out of it. About 5 minutes pass and finally the mother says, "Is there something wrong out there doctor?" The doctor replies, "No, not really, it's just that the last time anything like this happened, a star appeared in the east and 3 wise men came over the hill. And there's no way I'm going to miss it this time!!!!" ------------------------------------------------------------A woman goes into Discount Fishing Supplies to buy a rod and reel for her grandson's birthday. She doesn't know which one to get, so she just

picks one and goes over to the counter. The salesman is standing there, wearing dark shades. She says, "Excuse me. Can you tell me anything about this rod and reel?" He says, "Madam, I'm completely blind; but if you'll drop it on the counter, I can tell you everything you need to know about it from the sound it makes." She doesn't believe him but drops it on the counter anyway. He says, "That's a six-foot Shakespeare graphite rod with a Zebco 404 reel and 10lb..Test line. It's a good all around combination, and it's actually on sale this week for €44." She says, "That's amazing that you can tell all that, just by the sound of it dropping on the counter. I'll take it!" As she opens her purse, her credit card drops on the floor. "Oh, that sounds like a Visa card," he says. As the lady bends down to pick up the card, she accidentally breaks wind.. At first she's really embarrassed, but then realises there is no way the blind salesman would tell exactly who had farted. The man rings up the sale and says, "That'll be $58.50 please." The woman is totally confused by this and asks, "Didn't you tell me it was on sale for €44. How did you get €58.50?" "The Duck Caller is €11, and the Fish Bait is €3.50 ------------------------------------------------------------Paddy and Mick found 3 hand grenades and decided to take them to the police station. Mick says "What if one explodes before we get there?" Paddy replies "We'll lie and say we only found two!" ------------------------------------------------------------Paddy finds a sandwich with two wires sticking out of it. He phones the police and says "Bejaysus I've just found a sandwich dat looks like a bomb." The operator asks, "Is it tickin?” Paddy says "No, I tink it's beef"

First Bubble Tea shop in Andalucia!!!!!

Torre del Mar

The Bubble tea was born in Asia more than twenty years ago and is now growing and increasing in the European market. Usually prepared with a base of tea mixed with fruit syrup, offering a huge variety of combinations. Can be made as well with juice, smoothie or slush ice and allows the mixing of multiple flavours. Its originality is due to chewy tapioca or fruit balls which are added and explode in the mouth to release the flavour they contain, thus providing a unique experience.
