And so the baby bump continues to grow! By the time you read this editorial I’ll be 30 weeks pregnant, counting down the weeks to go until I birth our baby into the world. We still don’t know the sex and have chosen not to have more scans done unless absolutely necessary, so we’ll have a surprise on the day! So far the third trimester is going very well – no morning sickness or other issues and complications, and every day I count our blessings that both me and the baby seem to be healthy. It’s an active little thing too – punching and kicking regularly now throughout the day. Birthing anything into the world is a miraculous event – be it a new life, a new book, a piece of art, or any other creative project. Growing a baby has made me realise that we live in such a remarkable world and that so many gifts are bestowed on us. It’s up to each one of us to use the gifts that God gave us in order to bring more joy, beauty, love and peace to the world. If we have talents that we shut away and we don’t utilize them, then we’re wasting our true nature and the reason for us being here on this planet at this time. So I believe that it’s important to make each and every day count. My husband and I have opted to go for a home birth with a water tub, although of course if hospital transfer is necessary for whatever reason, then we’re happy with that too. We appreciate that plans can change! November 15th is the due date but I’m hedging our bets on 11/11 as the birth date… we’ll see if I’m right in a later issue!

Water Baby A 10-year-old girl has set a new record as the youngest swimmer ever to compete at a World Championships. Alzain Tareq from Bahrain came a distant last in the 50m butterfly heats in Kazan with a time of 41.13 seconds, but she was not deterred. "I am so happy to be here," she told reporters. "I want to be able to learn the techniques and how they swim." Although way short of the qualifying time, Alzain was allowed to compete in the event because of a rule allowing each nation to have some representation. "I am the fastest swimmer in Bahrain, and so they chose me," she said. The international governing body FINA does not have any minimum age limits for competitors but that is expected to change in the future. Alzain, who started to swim in 2009, is also entered in the 50m freestyle, and because she has competed at the world championships she could be eligible for next year's Olympics in Brazil. Moon and Back Astronaut Buzz Aldrin has published his expenses claim for the Apollo 11 mission to the moon, revealing that he was reimbursed $33.31 (ÂŁ21.36) by NASA. A Travel Voucher Memorandum detailed in very matter-of-fact terms the "schedule of expenses and amounts claimed" for a work trip by employee Colonel Edwin E. Aldrin in July 1969. It showed that he had travelled on business from his home in Houston, Texas to the moon and back again. According to the form Mr Aldrin used "Gov. Air" to get from Houston to Cape Kennedy. He then used "Gov. Spacecraft" to get from Cape Kennedy to "Moon". There was another return flight on "Gov. Spacecraft" and the destination was listed as "Pacific Ocean" where he and fellow astronauts Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins splashed down following their triumphant mission.

De Cotta Law

Readers Writes

At De Cotta Law we believe that the preliminary legal consultation is the most important moment in building the framework for success with your legal matter. For this reason we are holding a series of Open Days where you can obtain specialist free advice on Property law, English and Spanish wills and Family law.

This letter came from a very contented Sentinella client of seven years this September!

Here are some examples of consultations where the outcome has been of benefit. Clients who bought property during the 1990s found that their property was not correctly registered at the land registry. By studying the paperwork and documentation at a consultation we were able to advise on the procedure and legal work required to register the property correctly. We worked with local surveyors to register the property so that it could be marketed and sold without any retentions on the sale price. A family client who visited us for a consultation had been told she could not recover child maintenance from an absent father in the UK. We were able to advise on the Spanish procedure to obtain a court order that could be enforced against property and in some cases against salary in the UK. In Spanish courts you cannot act on your own behalf even in family and child matters so it is best to speak to lawyers with experience who can advise on the possible outcomes of claims. Equally a successful consultation can result in a less costly negotiated settlement and restrict your legal fees and court charges. It is also not too late to check your wills. The new European Regulation on Succession is now in force and although a number of De Cotta Law clients have already discussed this with us there are still many people who could be affected by the changes. To be sure that your heirs are protected bring copies of your existing wills and we can advise you. Finally if you would like to be added to our free newsletter list to be kept up to date with legal changes and issues please email info@decottalaw.net or call 952 527014. See the Open Day details and dates on advert opposite

Hi Kami, Thank you very much for your help. I am very happy with your support every year. This is the reason why I could continue with my clinic for this long. In the past years I have had almost all my English patients from your magazine and I have had many. Every month I have some patients, sometimes up to ten patients in a month. This is because of your help. So thank you very much again. Bianca Bojahr Clinca Casa Blanca Therapy Centre Urb. Jardines del Mar, Bloque C3, Torrox Costa Call: 952 967 28 / 659 374 673

Back To School Quotes At last! Back to school If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers. Edgar W. Howe Being a child at home alone in the summer is a high-risk occupation. If you call your mother at work thirteen times an hour, she can hurt you. Erma Bombeck Labor Day is a glorious holiday because your child will be going back to school the next day. It would have been called Independence Day, but that name was already taken. Bill Dodds The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows. Sydney J. Harris You send your child to the schoolmaster, but

'tis the schoolboys who educate him. Ralph Waldo Emerson Holidays are enticing only for the first week or so. After that, it is no longer such a novelty to rise late and have little to do. Especially here in Spain!  Margaret Laurence The simplest schoolboy is now familiar with truths for which Archimedes would have given his life. Ernest Renan, Souvenirs d'enfance et de jeunesse, 1883 Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself. John Dewey The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives. Robert Maynard Hutchins As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in schools.

Teacher Jokes A few rib ticklers about teachers What is a math teacher’s favourite sum? Summer! Teacher: ‘Craig, you know you can't sleep in my class.' Craig: 'I know. But maybe if you were just a little quieter, I could.' Stressing the importance of a good vocabulary, the teacher told her young charges, "Use a word ten times, and it shall be yours for life." From somewhere in the back of the room, came a small male voice chanting, "Amanda, Amanda, Amanda, Amanda, Amanda, Amanda, Amanda, Amanda, Amanda, Amanda."

What do you call a teacher without students? Happy Teachers deserve a lot of credit. Of course, if we paid them more, they wouldn’t need it. Teacher: I want you to tell me the longest sentence you can think of Pupil: Life imprisonment! Where do door-makers get their education? The school of hard knocks What do you call a teacher without students? Broke…oh wait, that’s a regular teacher

Does it count as differentiated instruction if I print their worksheets in different colours?

Teacher: Why have you got cotton wool in your ears, do you have an infection? Pupil: Well you keep saying that things go in one ear and out the other so I am trying to keep them it all in!

Pupil: I don't think I deserved zero on this test! Teacher: I agree, but that's the lowest mark I could give you!

Kid comes home from 1st day at school. Mum asks, 'What did you learn today?' Kid replies, 'Not enough. I have to go back tomorrow.'

Please mention The Sentinella when responding to adverts Corumbela

The very name conjures up images of pantomime fairies and cats! However the Romans named it La Paloma, the Pigeon! The villages perches, perhaps a little pigeon like, 600metre above sea level, with spectacular views of the Sierra Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama as well as the verdant valley below. It is situated 16kms from the coast and is probably the smallest of the Pueblos Blancos to be found in the Axarquía. Not much is known about the origin of the village but in 1493, catholic monarchs gave the village to Diego Fernandez of Cordoba, second Earl of Cabra, as payment for his services during the re-conquests final years. Later the Medinaceli family owned it until 1811 when the Parliament of Cadiz banned family ownership of villages. From then it had its own council until 1868

AS3020

when it was joined with Sayalonga. During the years 1884 – 86, Corumbela along with Sayalonga and some coastal areas suffered from an outbreak of phylloxera, the disease which destroyed the vines, this and a series of earthquakes during this time resulted in most people leaving the area. Nowadays Corumbela remains a sleepy village with about 300 inhabitants. One of the most striking things about the place is the church with its Mudejar style minaret, apart from that there is only a small bakery and Meson Los Arcos a barrestaurant. For more entertainment Archez is a few minutes drive away with plenty of restaurants and bars. Or the bustling much larger village of Cómpeta is not far away. Corumbela is 49kms from Málaga and is on the Mudejar route of the Axarquía. The easiest way to get there is either to drive past Arenas and Daimalos, or up past Algarrobo and Sayalonga then turning left for Archez and carrying on over the bridge to Corumbela

Axarquía Solicitors Taxes to be paid by sellers when selling their real estate properties When selling a property in Spain we advise you to find out in advance exactly how much it is going to cost you to do this. When a transaction takes place, most of taxes and expenses are paid by the Buyers; but the Sellers should know that they will also have to pay some taxes. These are: -LOCAL PLUSVALiA TAX. This is a tax on the increase of value of the land from the last transmission of ownership. This is calculated by the local Town Hall where the property is situated. When selling a real estate property it is always advisable to go in advance to your local Town Hall to get an estimate of this “Plusvalia Tax”, to avoid an unpleasant surprise later. -CAPiTAL gAiNS TAX. This is a tax on the profit if made when selling a property, payable to the Spanish Inland Revenue and is calculated by taking into account the difference between the purchase price paid (+ taxes and expenses of the purchase) and selling price (+ taxes and expenses of the sale). Again it is advisable to find out in advance an estimate of the Capital Gains Tax. Depending upon the Seller’s tax status in Spain, the Capital Gains Tax has to be paid in different ways: NON TAX RESiDENT SELLERS: - the Buyer of the property is obliged by law to withhold 3% of the selling price and pay it to the Spanish Inland Revenue on behalf of the Sellers. Sellers can claim a refund from this 3% tax paid if no profit was made, or if the amount paid was higher than the actual Capital Gains Tax due. TAX RESiDENT SELLERS: - The Sellers have to declare and pay the Capital Gains Tax, if any, the year after completing the sale of their property, (i.e. If sold in 2015 include it in 2016’s declaration).

In order to make sure all of the taxes are either paid or reclaimed correctly and to ensure a worry free completion of the sale we strongly recommend that you contract the professional services of a solicitor. If you are thinking of selling your property and wish to know in advance the amount of taxes that you will have to pay, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be pleased to meet you free of charge to study your particular case in detail and provide you with a precise estimation on taxes to be paid.

Funny Piccie :)

Random Joke :) Some years ago a small rural town in Spain twinned with a similar town in Greece. The mayor of the Greek town visited the Spanish town. When he saw the palatial mansion belonging to the Spanish mayor, he wondered aloud how on earth he could afford such a house. The Spaniard replied:‘You see that bridge over there? The EU gave us a grant to construct a two-lane bridge, but by building a single lane bridge with traffic lights at either end, I could build this place.’ The following year the Spaniard visited the Greek town. He was simply amazed at the Greek mayor's house: gold taps, marble floors, diamond doorknobs, it was marvellous. When he asked how he’d raised the money to build this incredible house, the Greek mayor said:‘You see that bridge over there?’ The Spaniard replied:‘No.’...............

ASBESTOS - MAkiNg BREAThiNg PROBLEMS

CLAiMS

FOR

My name is Steve Woods and I am a solicitor based in Chester, UK, specialising in claims for asbestos related diseases. I have been dealing with these claims for over 25 years and I aim to provide a professional but personal service. I often visit people in Spain and I have recently been to Competa, Benalmadena and Torremolinos. We all know that as we get older we can develop breathing problems. These problems can have a variety of causes but after investigations, such as x-rays or scans, problems with shortness of breath can be attributed to exposure to asbestos. These investigations can show whether lung damage has been caused by smoking or exposure to asbestos – this can cause very serious illnesses: asbestosis, diffuse pleural thickening and mesothelioma (a cancer that attacks the protective linings of the lungs). It is not only workmen who have used asbestos themselves who develop these diseases but also other men working in their vicinity or wives and other family members who come into contact with their work clothes. It does not matter if the person involved has died, claims are still possible in certain circumstances. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with an asbestos related condition or has breathing problems and has come into contact with asbestos in the UK please get in touch. You may be entitled to claim damages or benefits in the UK and I can help on a no win no fee basis. A change in the rules now enables a solicitor to agree with his client to take

a share of any money recovered. A lot of solicitors now do this but I do not because I believe that my clients should receive whatever compensation I can obtain for them in full. I can also guarantee that all claims are dealt with by a qualified solicitor. I am happy to talk to anyone free of charge about their individual situation to see if a claim is possible. I can be contacted on 00 44 1244 340560 at info@woodslaw.co.uk or alternatively you can visit my website at www.woodslaw.co.uk

Argentinian Meats Cooked To Perfection Torre del Mar is fast becoming an up-andcoming place for fine dining, with many types of food on offer such as Chinese, Indian, Japanese, American, Spanish, English and Argentinian to name but a few. This month I decided to dine at “Fogon del Pibe”, a lovely Argentinian grill restaurant in Tore Tore On entering the restaurant we were greeted by a very polite waiter who spoke English too... This always helps!! There is a choice of seating – either inside the nicely-decorated restaurant or on the large terrace which is heated in the winter months. There is an extensive menu offering soups, salads and the restaurant’s speciality – all types of excellent Argentinian meats. Chicken, goat, lamb, pork and beef are all cooked to perfection by Matias, the owner and an Argentinian chef. I chose a lovely salad to start. This was a bit different to a normal typical Spanish mixed salad, which was quite refreshing. It was filled

with lettuce, egg, chicken, tomato, orange, and apple. For main, I chose ribs cooked in honey – sticky and extremely tasty – served with the best pobre potatoes I have had in a long while, together with a little salad to dress my plate. We washed this down with a very nice bottle of vino. Our party consisted of four adults and three children. With salad starter, wine, water, beers, soft drinks and main courses all round it was a bargain at just 20 euros per head per adult. Fogon del Pibe also offers a lunchtime menu for just 7.90€. They also cater for large bookings if you have an event/function or party to celebrate. Call: 952 54 51 59 / 667 339 412 See main advert on page 45

Kitty Harri’s Sculpture Garden A N  A RTIS TIC   JEWEL  IN  THE  A NDA LU C IA N MO UNTAI NS It is almost a year since Kitty Harri's Sculpture Garden opened its doors to the public, a short drive from Almuñecar. Nearly 1000 visitors have come to have a complementary glass of wine and nibbles at the poolside bar before losing themselves on the trails of lush vegetation that house over 130 sculptures by 20 international sculptors Half of the sculptures are made by Kitty Harri herself, a bestselling novelist (writing as Kitty Sewell) and award winning sculptor. At various meetings and symposiums around Europe she has met sculptors who see the Garden as a desirable venue for exposure and have generously donated or lent works. Several artists from as far away as California have created their sculptures in situ, as "Artist in Residence". The Garden is also of great interest to gardeners. Over the years Kitty has planted a vast variety of exotic trees and plants and these now give shade to many seating areas where visitors can sit and contemplate the sculptures and

the spectacular mountain and sea views. kitty and her partner Nick Tasker welcome you any Sunday of the year, between 10am - 4pm. Groups numbering 6 - 40 are welcome any other time of the week by appointment. Events, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, photos shoots, etc. can be arranged in the garden. High quality catering is available. For more details and directions: www.kittyharri.com 639 563 213 / 609 706 210 See main advert on page 57

The Importance of Drafting your Will A new legislation was passed by the European Council on July 4. The new European Union rules – now known as EU 650/2012 – are applicable to successions to all member states as of August 17 this year. The UK, Eire and Denmark have opted out, citing incompatibility between the differing legal procedures. Expats in Spain have the choice to apply either the law of nationality or the law of habitual residence to their succession. The habitual residency choice leaves many inconsistencies as to whether this is in the country of residence, or the country you were most associated with at time of death. In the latter case, the law of succession of that country will apply. The new regulation will be applicable to all assets in the EU, and will apply in Spain. Axarquía Lawyers has received many enquiries about the drafting of wills in Spain, directly related to the new EU regulations. Drafting a will is one of the most important duties that you will undertake. Do not leave this to chance – as well as the very important new clause, there is also the matter of the translation. This will ensure that the law of nationality will be applied to assets in the inheritance. Anyone concerned about these matters should

67

Property - Wills - Inheritance - Taxes Tel: 952 967 004 / www.axarquialawyers.com

seek the advice of a lawyer with expertise on EU successions. Habitual residents whose wills do not include the above-mentioned clause will have their inheritances executed under the Spanish law on succession. Although the regulation came into force in 2012, the provisions will not apply until August 17. That said, wills can be prepared and executed now, but do take note that until that date, the old regulations will apply and your wishes for your country of birth – or nationality – or your country of residence will govern your succession. Your present will remain valid if death occurs before midnight on August 16. There is no guarantee that your wishes will be respected, though – even if the clause is added. The cost is 145€ per person all inclusive with no extra charges, including meeting with clients, translation,notary assistance and fees.

It’s Official - Spain Healthiest Country To Live In Europe :) Spain is officially healthiest country to live in Europe Spain is today still the healthiest place to live in Europe, despite its economic problems, and quite possibly in the world, according to the medical journal Lancet, with an average of 70.9 years of healthy living, and a life expectancy of 81.4 years. According to the European League Table, which is comprised of data collected over a 20 year period, the healthiest place to live in Europe is Spain, which also beats many other countries in the world. The country ranks number one for life expectancy with an average of 81.4 years, which is two years longer than people living in the UK. In fact the UK is way down the list in 12th place, behind Greece, Ireland and Germany. The US isn't doing too well either, and is listed at number 17, with on average 67.9 healthy years and a life expectancy of 78.2 years. Lancet has attributed a combination of factors

to Spain leading in the results, including healthy eating (with the Mediterranean diet), the warmer climate and more walking. One factor is that Spanish families still care for ailing relatives taking daily meals to those in hospital. They say that premature deaths from falls are also low. 1. Spain: average healthy years - 70.9; life expectancy - 81.4 2. italy: average healthy years - 70.2; life expectancy - 81.5 3. Australia: average healthy years - 70.1; life expectancy - 81.5 4. Sweden: average healthy years - 69.6; life expectancy - 81.4 5. Canada: average healthy years - 69.6; life expectancy - 80.6 6. France: average healthy years - 69.5; life expectancy - 80.9

Cruise to wed again American actor Tom Cruise looks set to marry for the fourth time – and to a young lady who looks the image of wife number three. Cruise popped the question to his British assistant Emily Thomas, 22, who looks eerily like exwife Katie Holmes. The Top Gun star popped the question during a romantic break in Morocco. Hollywood big hitter Cruise, 53, married actress Mimi Rogers, 59 – who introduced him to the controversial Scientology Church – in 1987. He has also wed and divorced Hollywood babes Nicole Kidman, 48, and Katie, 36. Emily started working for the star last year, and with her long brown hair and hazel eyes she is a lookalike for his most recent wife Holmes. “Tom has fallen head over heels for Emily, and she feels the same way” said a close source. Naughty Naomi Hot-tempered supermodel Naomi Campbell has been convicted of assault and sentenced to a six-month suspended sentence in Italy. The ruling is the resolution of a dispute which dates back to 2009, when Campbell hit an Italian paparazzo with her purse, injuring his eye. In a statement, Campbell's lawyer said he would be appealing. In 2009, Campbell and her then-boyfriend Vladimir Doronin were sightseeing in Italy. Photographer Gaetano Di Giovanni allegedly followed the couple during their tour of Sicily; irritated, Campbell swung her purse at him, scratching his eye. This is Campbell's fourth conviction for assault.

She previously pleaded guilty to assault in 2000 after throwing her cellphone at her personal assistant. Then in 2007, she pleaded guilty again to assault, this time after pitching a crystal-studded BlackBerry at her housekeeper. One year later, she pleaded guilty to assault, after she kicked and spat on two police officers in London Heathrow Airport following a dispute over lost luggage.

Please mention The Sentinella when responding to adverts whitney’s daughter dies Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of the late Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown, has died at the age of 22. Brown was discovered face down and unresponsive in a bathtub on 31 January. Police said she was found in the suburban Atlanta home she shared with Nick Gordon, the man she called her husband. A police report described the incident as a "drowning". Mr Gordon said at the time she did not appear to be breathing and lacked a pulse before emergency services arrived. Although she was found face down in her bath, the 22-year-old also had bruises on the front of her body. Authorities later concluded that she had suffered injuries to her face and mouth in a car crash several days earlier, saying they were not the result of foul play. She was placed in a medically induced coma and had been breathing with the aid of a ventilator before she died. She never regained consciousness. Whitney Houston was found dead in a hotel bath in Los Angeles in 2012.

Michelle Rodriguez, 37, was stunning in a revealing black dress, and Irina Shayk, 29, bared her cleavage in a very low-cut gown.

& t i u Fr Facts Veg Ginger Ginger is among the healthiest (and most delicious) spices on the planet. It is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits for your body and brain. It has a very long history of use in various forms of traditional/alternative medicine and can be used fresh, dried, powdered, or as an oil or juice. It is sometimes added to processed foods and cosmetics and is a very common ingredient in recipes. It contains gingerol, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Ginger can treat many forms of nausea, especially morning sickness. It has a long history of use as a sea sickness remedy, and there is some evidence that it may be as effective as prescription medication. It may also relieve nausea and vomiting after surgery, and in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. It has been shown to be effective against exercise-induced muscle pain and stiffness. In one study, consuming 2 grams of ginger per day, for 11 days, significantly reduced muscle pain in people performing elbow exercises. In a controlled trial of 247 people with osteoarthritis of the knee, those who took ginger extract had less pain and required less pain medication. Another study found that a combination of ginger, mastic, cinnamon and sesame oil can reduce pain and stiffness in osteoarthritis patients when applied topically. Ginger may drastically lower blood sugars and improve heart disease risk factors. It also appears to speed up emptying of the stomach, which can be beneficial for people with chronic indigestion and related stomach discomfort. Ginger powder may significantly reduce menstrual pain. In one study, 150 women took 1 gram of ginger powder per day for the first 3 days of the menstrual period, and it managed to reduce pain as effectively as the drugs mefenamic acid and ibuprofen.

There is some evidence, in both animals and humans, that ginger can lead to significant reductions in LDL cholesterol and blood triglyceride levels. The 6-gingerol contained in ginger may have protective effects against cancer. Some studies suggest that the antioxidants and bioactive compounds in ginger can inhibit inflammatory responses that occur in the brain, and there is also some evidence that it can enhance brain function directly. There are also numerous studies in animals showing that ginger can protect against age-related decline in brain function, suggesting that it could help fight Alzheimer’s disease.

Amazing Business Opportunity From Keidi Keating – the Editor As most of the regular readers of The Sentinella will know, I recently married an American man and moved to the USA. As part of creating my new life there I’m letting go of a lot of my old life here in Spain. So there’s an exciting, sky’s the limit opportunity for an entrepreneurial sort (or for a potential partnership) who thinks big and takes action! Kami and Tony (my sister and brother-in-law) do a fantastic job running The Sentinella magazine so nothing is changing with that side of things and they will continue to run The Sentinella Axarquia edition as usual. However, I have decided to sell The Sentinella licensing rights. In other words, a massive opportunity exists for someone to expand The Sentinella into other regions of Spain and countries where expats gather across the world. Someone could choose to do this either by setting up

Sentinella magazines in different areas themselves and then selling them, building a massive network of magazines as a thriving business, or selling the licensing rights to other people who can set up The Sentinella in their area. None of the existing editions of The Sentinella (Axarquia edition, Costa tropical edition, and the Malaga editon) would be affected by this, as they are now all independently run. If anyone is interested in the price for this unique opportunity, or for more info, please email Keidi at info@thesentinella.com

Please note, The Sentinella Axarquia magazine is NOT for sale and nor are any of the other editions of The Sentinella magazine – the only thing that is for sale is The Sentinella umbrella licensing rights.

People Who Come And Go People who Come and go – 10 – Ana, Molino de Alboran

unique property and retirement afoot, why move on, I ask Ana?

“Of all the houses in Andalusia, for us, only two are perfect! El Molino de Alboran is one of them” And with that the new owners put their names to a contract to purchase!

“When I saw the house five years ago I was just stunned by its beauty and had to have it! But now, with my daughter settled in London, I am faced with retiring here alone. Many of my Spanish born friends are in Marbella and at my age, a smaller, more manageable but equally beautiful house there, designed by Donald Grey, caught my eye. So when I accepted the offer for the mill, I was happy to put down a deposit on my future Marbella home.”

Granada born Ana has owned this 250 year old mill for five years, dividing her time between a busy job in London as an interpreter and the pure enjoyment of the natural surroundings and stunning character of her beautiful country home in Andalusia. Ana spent five happy years visiting and enjoying the mill with her daughter and former partner. Now retired, new plans were in her mind, so when her buyers came along and it was love at first sight, it seemed like the perfect moment for her to move on. The mill, over 300m in size with huge rooms, amazingly thick beams, high ceilings and a stunning inner patio with a tall palm tree, plus fish pond, large pool, jacuzzi and sauna, is tucked away in a hidden valley between Torrox and Cómpeta and was beautifully refurbished a few years ago, maintaining its original character, charm and rustic elegance. With such a

We very much wish Ana luck with this new chapter in her life and many years of happiness to the new owners of the wonderful, historic Molino de Alboran.

Another unique feature is that the teeth of this fish are fused together as a single row r be um n a

The fish is called so because it has spines all over its body to protect itself from predators. The porcupine fish is a medium-sized fish that is 25-90 cm long, but it can enlarge itself up to twice its size by swallowing water or air and inflating like a balloon When it inflates its body, these spines stand out, and it seems like hundreds of needles are protruding from the body Once the fish inflates its body, it is simply impossible for its predator to attack. Peculiarly, if a predator gobbles up the fish before it gets time to inflate its body, it still inflates itself in the mouth of the predator, which results in the death of the two

They can live up to 10 years Their reproduction method is also very distinct. The male and the female fish mate in the open ocean, or sometimes, a group of males mate with a single female. The eggs fertilized at this time drift to the surface of the ocean due to currents When the eggs hatch, the larvae float on the surface of the water. When they become small fish, they go to the bottom of the ocean, in the reef These fish are found in warm water oceans, specifically along the Atlantic coast. Their diet usually consists of sea jellies and molluscs. They also have a natural tendency to spurt jets of water on their prey. If kept in an aquarium, they can spurt water on other objects when they are hungry These fish also eat crabs, oysters, clams, and snails as their teeth and jaws have modified to crush the hard shells of their prey

Porcupine fish give off a type of mucus from their body which provides protection against parasites and infections. This also helps them move faster in water as they are naturally very poor swimmers Porcupine fish almost always hunt during the night when they move stealthily to find their prey

The Pain

A Boy and His Dad Edgar Guest, 1881 - 1959 A boy and his dad on a fishing-trip— There is a glorious fellowship! Father and son and the open sky And the white clouds lazily drifting by, And the laughing stream as it runs along With the clicking reel like a martial song, And the father teaching the youngster gay How to land a fish in the sportsman’s way. I fancy I hear them talking there In an open boat, and the speech is fair. And the boy is learning the ways of men From the finest man in his youthful ken. Kings, to the youngster, cannot compare With the gentle father who’s with him there. And the greatest mind of the human race Not for one minute could take his place. Which is happier, man or boy? The soul of the father is steeped in joy, For he’s finding out, to his heart’s delight, That his son is fit for the future fight. He is learning the glorious depths of him, And the thoughts he thinks and his every whim; And he shall discover, when night comes on, How close he has grown to his little son. A boy and his dad on a fishing-trip— Builders of life’s companionship! Oh, I envy them, as I see them there Under the sky in the open air, For out of the old, old long-ago Come the summer days that I used to know, When I learned life’s truths from my father’s lips As I shared the joy of his fishing-trips.

Film A

Humour, whimsy and lightness of spirit are all qualities that come into play in “Ant-Man.” This enjoyably off-the-cuff franchise starter takes a cue from its incredible shrinking protagonist (played by Paul Rudd) and emerges with a smaller-scaled, bigger-hearted origin story than most comic book heroes are typically granted. After a brief 1989-set prologue introducing Dr. Hank Pym (a younger-looking, digitally airbrushed Michael Douglas), a brilliant scientist whose particle research is highly coveted by the forces of S.H.I.E.L.D., the movie settles into a loose-and-casual vibe as it shifts to present-day Northern California, where we first meet Scott Lang (Rudd), a skilled cat burglar who’s just spent three years in San Quentin.

He’s picked up by his old cellmate Luis (Michael Pena), who tries to coax him back into a life of petty crime with his current associates (Tip “T.I.” Harris and David Dastmalchian), but Scott is determined to go straight and reconnect with his young daughter, Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson). That means paying child support to his disapproving ex, Maggie (Judy Greer), whose cop fiance, Paxton (Bobby Cannavale), doesn’t think much of Scott’s ability to turn over a new leaf. Scott is soon cracking a giant safe in someone’s basement, where he finds a slightly battered-looking, ’60s-era black suit, and experiences its properties firsthand: Not only can he shrink to the size of an ant, but he also takes on cannonball strength and bullet speed. As it turns out, both the basement and the suit belong to Hank, who devised his shrinking technology years ago as a powerful U.S. military weapon but ultimately shelved it, lest it fall into enemy hands. Now, however, Hank needs someone able and willing to don the suit again, and he has settled on Scott, whose impressive stealth, agility and talent for thievery are just the skills Ant-Man needs. And from there the film explodes into the usual comic-book style that we all know and love. Star Rating - ****/*****

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of www.AbsoluteAxarquia.com ARIES: March 21-April 20 September is an excellent time for Arians, especially in relationships and romance, although care should be taken in prospective economic partnerships. If you loan money this month beware that it may not be repaid! TAURUS: April 21-May 21 Although the height of the summer is drawing to a close, Taureans need to be extra mindful of skin/sun related issues this month so please beware and be careful of over exposure to the sun. In addition think twice before spending unnecessarily

let the universe show you the way LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 Whether in a relationship or living solo, September is an harmonious time for Librans with interesting opportunities. A female family member will come up trumps with ideas and funding for projects SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 A good time to act on phone calls and emails that may lead to work challenges and unexpected positive opportunities and outcome. Don´t spend all month working and planning – time out is necessary for your mental and physical wellbeing

GEMINI: May 22-June 21 Geminiis should take things slowly during September and exercise prudence most especially in dealings with finance and gossip

SAGITTARIUS: November 22 - December 21 Try to relax and concentrate on just one thing at a time or stress will overwhelm and mask some great results. Burn some lavender oil and go out and have fun!

CANCER: June 22-July 22 A time of reflection for Cancerians. Past grudges should remain historic while remembering the positive and forgetting the negative and not so good. There are opportunities for promotion and changes within your working sphere

CAPRICORN: December 22 - January 20 Exciting times as the end of one cycle arrives and the start of another begins for lucky Capricorns. You´ll need quality sleep and nourishment to replenish energy and keep up!

LEO: July 23-August 23 A great time for romance – give in! This month is also a great time to introduce new ideas and projects in your profession, perhaps something geared towards a better balance with family life

AQUARIUS: January 21 - February 19 Unresolved and unnecessary jealousies can threaten your relationships this month. Neither is this a good month to begin a relationship, whether personal or at work

VIRGO: August 24-September 22 A passionate and intense month for Virgoans, so a time to add responsibility to the mix! Think about your real wishes and ambitions and

PISCES: February 20 - March 20 Especially as regards finances, take the advice of a close family member to avoid losses in September, and well aspected business prospects and proposals will arise and be maintained

) : a h a Jokes h A man joins a very exclusive nudist colony. On his first day, he takes off his clothes and starts to wander around. A gorgeous blonde walks by, and the man immediately gets an erection. The woman notices his erection, comes over to him and says, 'Did you call for me?' The man replies, 'No, what do you mean?' She says, 'You must be new here. Let me explain. It's a rule here that if you get an erection, it implies you called for me.' Smiling, she leads him to the side of the swimming pool, lies down on a towel, eagerly pulls him to her and happily lets him have his way with her. The man continues to explore the colony's facilities. He enters the sauna and, as he sits down, he farts..... Within minutes, a huge, hairy man lumbers out of the steam-room toward him, 'Did you call for me?' says the hairy man. 'No, what do you mean?' says the newcomer. 'You must be new,' says the hairy man, 'It's a rule that if you fart, it implies that you called for me.' The huge man easily spins him around, bends him over a bench and has his way with him. The newcomer staggers back to the colony office, where he is greeted by the smiling, naked receptionist, 'May I help you?' she says. The man yells, 'Here's my membership card. You can have the key back and you can keep the £500 membership fee.' 'But, Sir,' she replies, 'You've only been here for a few hours. You haven't had the chance to see all our facilities.' The man replies, 'Listen lady, I'm 68 years old. I only get an erection once a month. I fart 35 times a day!!' ------------------------------------------------------------I am entering "Rear of the year” soon, well I was chatting up two ladies about an hour ago and as I walked away I heard one say to the

Goodness Grassness Me!!! Pensioner baffled after thieves steal half of her front lawn while she sleeps Mair Ingman spoke of her disbelief that brazen thieves “had the cheek” to roll up a 90sqm section of her garden. “I opened my blinds as normal and could see lots of sand at the bottom of the lawn and I wondered what it was," said Mair. “At first I just thought that someone had dumped loads of sand, because you don’t think anyone would take your lawn. “But then I realised they had stolen it.” Ms Ingman says she was given the lawn as a gift from a friend last November and was “upset” to discover it had been pinched. She added: “I was very proud of my lawn so was upset it was gone, but more than anything shocked. “I’ve never heard of anyone stealing someone’s lawn before. “It does make me scared that they might come back.” After discovering the theft, she called police who sent round officers who took measurements and photographs of footprints in the sand.

But it was not the first time she has been targeted by thieves. A few years ago, she had £100 stolen from her house during a break-in. However, she refuses to let the latest theft to dampen her spirits. She said: “I won’t fret, what’s done is done. It’s no good getting upset and compared to all the other bad things going on in the world, this is just a drop in the ocean.” Police are appealing for information regarding the missing lawn.
