m Fro Ed... the Is it just me or does the world seem to be getting busier with each new year that whizzes by? Does time seem to be getting faster? And do people seem to be getting more and more stressed out with their frantic lives? This is certainly how it appears to me. We are being bombarded with more information now than we ever have had access to in the past. In the olden days it was only TV, radio and newspapers that grabbed our attention, but now we have internet, our laptops, mobile phones, tablets, social networking sites, games consoles, and new attention-sapping technologies popping up left, right and centre. In a way this is all a good thing – it means that anyone anywhere has access to whatever information they seek, quite literally at their fingertips. However, with the good, we must also look at the polar opposite. What is not so good about all of this? Well, it takes our focus away from the inner self (which is where the state of Grace lives – and from where the magic and miracles show up) to the outer world of materialism, greed, and negativity. Amidst all of this, people are losing sight of the omnipresent magnificence of God, the Universe, our Creator, or whatever name you prefer to use… And that’s a shame because when we live from Grace, life becomes effortless, joyful, and whole. We no longer have a need to envy others, to want more, to seek approval, control, or security… because we have everything we need right here, right now… inside of us. Namely love. Whether you agree with this or not, love is what we all really want more of. It is never about anything else… In the same way, everything that you feel you don’t have always comes down to how much love you have (or don’t have) towards your Self.

The key here is to love your Self more. I have recently learned a very valuable and life-altering lesson. The more I love myself, the less I care about what others think of me (which is just as it should be). The less I get caught up in

the petty mind games of others. The less I seek approval of others by giving as much as I can in order for certain people to like me, or love me. I do not have to do that anymore… not now that I’ve learned to love myself as the amazing being that I am, as that is all the love I need – it is limitless and abundant. And I do not mean this in a bigheaded way. We are ALL incredible beings, as in essence we all Divine sparks of Light – beautiful rays of God energy ready to light up the world… Please note, I’ve by no means perfected the art of loving myself wholly and completely yet – that is a big task for any one of us – but I have began the journey and so far it has been well worth it. If you have any resistance to the words in this editorial (and I’m sure many of you do) perhaps be still for a moment and look inside. Ask yourself, why you are so resistant to Truth? You decide!

Strange News rubbish robber A Chinese bank clerk was caught on CCTV laughing at an incompetent bank robber who threatened her with a meat cleaver - despite the fact that she was hidden behind an unbreakable security barrier. Dozy robber De Ke, 28, also stopped mid-robbery in Shanghai to answer his mobile phone, leaning against the glass to tell whoever it was that he was busy and to call back later. Bank clerk Rong Ku, 41, told local media: "I might have taken it seriously if he'd had a gun as you never know really if the security glass will stop a bullet, but I knew he had no chance of getting through with a meat cleaver. "It was a bizarre situation. He said 'this is a robbery' in a really quiet voice and then asked me to hold on while he took a phone call." As he shouted down the phone, a security guard intervened, allowing another customer to disarm the robber before police arrived on the scene. Mango madness A man(go) hunt is underway in Australia after thieves armed with heavy machinery managed to steal a 10-metre, seven-tonne monument during a midnight heist at Bowen, Queensland. The Big Mango is one of 150 "Big Things" erected as tourist attractions in small towns across the country. Suspicions the theft was a publicity stunt were raised when it emerged police had not been informed. "It looks like it was sort of a two o'clock this morning type thing," said Bowen Tourism chairman Paul McLaughlin. "At the end of the day it's a bloody big mango and I'm sure someone will see it.

Double Massage - Hair & Beauty Studio After seven years of non-stop working on The Sentinella sitting for hours on end at my computer, I thought it was time I treated myself to a good old massage. The Hair and Beauty Studio in Puente don Manuel were advertising double massages so I invited a friend along too. We were given a warm welcome by Sarah and her team. Sarah and her colleague Clare took us through to the massage room, the ambience was wonderful, a lovely heated room awaited us, the lighting was in just the right places to give it a nice calm relaxing feeling, a pleasant aroma of scented oils, soft music playing in the background... Well I was well on the way to relaxing already! Sarah gave us both the choice of massage, either stress relief or energising, we both chose a much needed stress relief massage. Sarah explained that the difference between the two was in the oils that they use. We had booked a double back, neck and shoulder massage, our beds were waiting for us, so Sarah and Clare left the room whilst we made ourselves comfortable.

After checking if either of us had any medical problems with our back or neck, they got to work. After the initial getting used to the massage feeling, I was in pure therapeutic relaxation, almost to the point of nodding off in pure ecstasy. The thought of knowing that there were four people in this room with me, had completley disappeared, I was in a deep trance. Sarah who massaged me, after massaging at certain points regularly placed hot towells on me, that was a nice feeling in itself! After thirty minutes I was so relaxed I could have just curled up in a ball and gone to sleep, but it was only 11am! Sarah offered us a cup of herbal tea and water and left my friend and I to relax some more, have a chat. This is my first experience of a double massage and what a great idea it is, perfect for husbands and wives, couples, friends, mothers and daughters, the list is endless and at only 20â‚Ź per person it is definiteley worth it. The Hair and Beauty Studio boasts a whole range of massages; foot, leg, full body massage, remedial sports massage, full body, face and head massage, pregnancy massage and now a NEW Lava shells massage where you will be massaged with marine polished sea shells, where you will instantly drift into a blanket of warmth, falling into a state of utter relaxation and calm.

De Cotta Law Timeshare Update - By De Cotta Law

list that should have been protected.

TATOC Ambassador Programme Sandra Wrightson of De Cotta Law is just back from attending the annual TATOC Timeshare Conference 2014 in England (7th to 9th March), where she was appointed an Ambassador for TATOC.

These lists are sold or obtained illegally and used to try and persuade individuals to part with money and or their timeshare week by companies who then disappear once they have collected enough funds. Both TATOC and RDO have lists of Cold Callers on their websites and are working hard with the authorities to close down these operations.

The association was originally established to assist owner’s committees and consumers and has become the first point of call for the OFT, the European legislators and the authorities generally in dealing with the timeshare sector. TATOC is having considerable impact with its accreditation scheme and have now launched an Ambassador´s programme to help to bring more resorts and owner’s committees into TATOC. The Ambassadors will also be ensuring that more information is available on the website, so please take a moment to visit TATOC online or contact Sandra Wrightson on if you would like an update or want to ask for specific information. Timeshare Cold Calling TATOC, Europe’s largest consumer association for timeshare owners, is actively addressing the issue of ‘Cold Calling’. The association is endeavouring to communicate to the widest possible audience that Cold Callers are the biggest single problem affecting the industry. If you receive a call about your timeshare from a company or individual that you do not know and have not dealt with they have almost certainly obtained your contact information from a

How To Have Your Own Easter Egg Hunt Get your house ready for your Easter egg hunt by hanging balloons outside your home and an Easter decoration on your door so everyone knows where they're going. If you plan on serving snacks at the hunt, decorate a few tables with pastel-color tablecloths and streamers. Have Easter baskets ready for the kids to take on the hunt. Make your own Easter egg baskets. You can hide plastic or real eggs at your Easter egg hunt, If you're decorating and hiding real eggs, get a few small prizes to hand out to the children. Fill plastic eggs with small toys, sweets, temporary tattoos, coins, stickers, beads, or numbers that correspond to bigger prizes, such as stuffed animals, chocolate bunnies, Easter books, or gift certificates. Easter Egg hunt Tip: Estimate about a dozen eggs per guest so everyone has a chance to find and collect a good amount of eggs. Have a few extra basket in case guests forget to bring their own.

If you have both younger and older children attending your Easter egg hunt, divide the backyard into two zones so you can hide your Easter eggs based on age groups. Go easy on the smaller children by leaving eggs on low branches and in open places, but make it more difficult for the older ones. Hard-to-find spots, such as under leaves, in the postbox, or on top of car tyres are perfect challenges for older children in your group. Having them search for Easter eggs in harder places will also help them enjoy the hunt more. The hunt doesn't end until the last egg is found, so keep a count of how many eggs you hide! If you're decorating and hiding real eggs for your Easter egg hunt, you'll want to boil and dye them about a week beforehand so you don't stress about them being ready. Stuff your plastic eggs a week before the hunt, too. Get ideas for pretty ways to dye Easter eggs.

Simple Truths Simple truth 1 Lovers help each other undress before sex. However after sex, they always dress on their own. Moral of the story: In life, no one helps you once you're screwed. Simple truth 2 When a lady is pregnant, all her friends touch her stomach and say, "Congratulations." But, none of them touch the man's penis and say, "Good job." Moral of the story: Hard work is never appreciated.

interesting Facts - Unlike many of its West African neighbours, Gambia has enjoyed long spells of stability since independence. President Yahya Jammeh seized power in a bloodless coup in 1994 and has ruled with an iron fist ever since. Despite the presence of the Gambia river, which runs through the middle of the country, only one-sixth of the land is arable and poor soil quality has led to the predominance of one crop - peanuts. The Gambia is a major destination for female sex tourism. Predominantly middle-aged white women from Europe and America visit the Gambia's beach resorts looking for a "holiday romance", in which local young men – known as "bumsters" – exchange sex for money, gifts or visas. Gambia's president can cure Aids. Or so he says. Jammeh announced in 2007 that he had found a remedy of boiled herbs that can cure Aids. He says 68 patients have been cured.

Film iew rs Club Rev as Buye Da


Dallas Buyers Club is the story of a homophobic AIDS patient who ends up smuggling medicines (played by best actor nominee Matthew McConaughey). Throw in sex, nudity, profanity, drugs and violence, and you get an AIDS epidemic that is not a happy-ending, but certainly tests the human spirit. McConaughey stars as real-life party-hardy Texas cowboy and self-employed electrician Ron Woodroof, whose free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was

diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live. Dallas Buyers Club is grounded by a resonant real-life story of struggle and survival. In the early days of the AIDS epidemic, the US was divided over how to combat the virus. Woodroof, was shunned and ostracized by many of his old friends and decided to take matters in his own hands, tracking down alternative treatments. Dedicated doctor Eve (Jennifer Garner) and similarly-afflicted sufferer Rayon (Jared Leto) become his unlikely support system as he starts scouring the globe for treatment and peddling unapproved drugs to fellow patients throughout Texas.

Cadbury And Rowntree Only the British will get this one! Mr. Cadbury met Miss Rowntree on a Double Decker. It was just After Eight. They got off at Quality Street and had a drink in a Mars Bar. He asked her name. 'Polo, I'm the one with the hole' she said with a Wispa. 'I'm Marathon, the one with the nuts' he replied. He touched her Cream Eggs, which was a Kinder Surprise for her. Then he slipped his hand into her Snickers, which made her Ripple.

He fondled her Curly Wurlies and she rubbed his Maltesers. Soon they were Heart Throbs. It was a Fab moment as she screamed in Turkish Delight. But 3 days later, his Sherbet Dip started to itch. Turns out Miss Rowntree had been with Bertie Bassett and he had Allsorts!

Andalucian Plein Air Painters (APAP) 'Dappled light filtering through the trees - a nearby stream - at one with nature - every artist’s dream' what is APAP? We are a group of painters, founded by internationally-renowned artist Heather Gail Harman, BA Hons. We love to paint outdoors in our wonderful landscape, painting 'plein air' in the true spirit of the Impressionists. Heather is a pastel specialist who belongs to eight major pastel societies for which she often is invited to demonstrate her favourite medium. 'My favourite venue was Monet's garden in Giverny, closely followed by some of the stunning painting spots in Andalucia including the Alhambra in Granada and Ithica in Greece,’ she says. ‘Turkey was a favourite too. Ephesus was a fabulous experience; in fact, every venue has something to offer, but it was the Axarquia valley that I moved to ─ the painting here is stunning and varied, and the climate temperate. There is nothing like working in the landscape with a group of like-minded painters who experience working from life and not just from photos. Inevitably their painting benefits; the development of the 'artist’s eye', just pure assimilation of the activity; a heightened sense of the landscape’. Heather has over 30 years’ experience teaching artists ‘plein air’, having spent many years with her husband taking painting groups all over Europe. She starts the sessions with a guidance demonstration ─ how to approach landscape issues ─ which everyone loves, just to see Heather at work live; something that major international societies pay a lot to see her do. Everyone has a vision of the artist amongst the wild flowers engaged in a beautiful idyllic vista, sketching and painting from nature; a good time to bring out your Harrods hamper with a glass of wine etc, having an al fresco lunch in a beautiful spot where you can hear the birds and a nearby stream. Anyone with an interest in portraying the landscape can join in. You don’t have to be an experienced painter ─ you might only sketch and take in the experience, being inspired by those who do paint. It might even spark an interest you didn't know you had. Sketching and painting outdoors is a very affordable pastime! This is also for anyone in the region, whether they belong to an art group already or not. It is so important for some ─ especially ladies ─ being out in the fields in a group; it gives them a sense of freedom and security. Some paintouts will be organised specifically for those who want to participate, but feel shy about everyone walking around looking at them work in a busy village! It’s a great way to see a little bit of the beauty of a new area, too. 'It is important that the group members feel at ease and comfortable,’ says Harriet. ‘We do our best to provide the ambience! This is also

why the tuition element is important. I teach the basics to advanced level in a local class, but outdoor work is very different. It is more relaxed and the artists’ senses are heightened ─ completely different to working indoors. The initial introductory demonstration is important and I keep it lighthearted. I advise on materials ─ I stock most of the materials needed for my groups. Most people tell me that their partners appreciate having something to buy for presents!’ The paint-outs will be arranged during the months which are not too hot, and always where there is plenty of shade. They start in early April, and there are one or two a month, 10.30 - 4pm with time allotted for breaks and lunch. ‘I am looking for some idyllic spots,’ Harriet adds. ‘I have many lined up but I would love to hear from anyone who would love a paintout in their area, and can recommend a good venue, whether it is just a beautiful spot in the countryside (with nearby facilities) or something more challenging ─ maybe from someone's private garden.

Easter Facts Easter is the second most important candyeating occasion of the year for Americans, who consumed 7 billion pounds of candy in 2011, according to the National Confectioner's Association. In 2012, Americans spent nearly $2.1 billion on Easter candy, while Halloween sales were over $2 billion; Christmas, more than $1.4 billion; and Valentine's Day, over $1 billion. Chocolate bunnies should be eaten ears first, according to 76% of Americans. Five percent said bunnies should be eaten feet first, while 4% favoured eating the tail first. Adults prefer milk chocolate (65%), to dark chocolate (27%). According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the largest Easter egg ever made was just over 25ft high and made of chocolate and marshmallow. The egg weighed 8,968 lbs and was supported by an internal steel frame.

Each Easter season, Americans buy more than 700 million Marshmallow Peeps, shaped like chicks, as well as Marshmallow Bunnies and Marshmallow Eggs, making them the most popular non-chocolate Easter candy. Americans consume 16 billion jellybeans at Easter, many of them hidden in baskets. If all the Easter jellybeans were lined end to end, they would circle the globe nearly three times. 70% of kids aged 6–11 say they prefer to eat Easter jellybeans one at a time, while 23% report eating several at once. Boys (29%) were more apt to eat a handful than girls (18%). Children indicate their favorite Easter jellybean flavors are cherry (20%), strawberry (12%), grape (10%), lime (7%), and blueberry (6%).

Old Age ! An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen. The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, 'Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great.. I would recommend it very highly..' The other man said, 'What is the name of the restaurant?'

The first man thought and thought and finally said, 'What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know.... The one that's red and has thorns.' 'Do you mean a rose?' 'Yes, that's the one,' replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, 'Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?'

Hell’s Angels In 1965, Hells Angels welcomed a LIFE magazine photographer (Bill Ray) into their pack, and allowed him to capture their nomad lives on film. The pictures have been around for over 50 years, but only recently have been released by LIFE on their website. The photographers were blind folded and taken to a secret Hell's Angels hang out, where they were challenged by three games of pool. After Bill Ray, won two out of three games they accepted him to come along for the ride. Over several weeks, Bill tailed the men and their 'old ladies' as they drove across the country and induced fear into locals and authorities "It was exhilarating being around them, there's no question about it. You just never knew what they were going to do. You're always kind of on edge." - said Ray. "They don't punch a clock, so they fill the time drinking beer, smoking pot, screwing around.

There was always a sense that anything could happen at any minute. Things could go from light-hearted to scary pretty quick." Of their love of the road, Ray added: 'They just ride. Where they're going hardly matters. It's not an easy life. But it's what they choose. It's And theirs. everyone else can get out of the way or go to hell.' "They rode their bikes, hung out in bars for days at a time, fought with anyone who messed with them. They were self-contained, with their own set of rules, their own code of behavior. It was extraordinary." "This was a new breed of rebel," Ray told "They, of course, didn't have jobs. They despised everything that most Americans pursue - stability and security.

40 Years Of Marriage Ahhhhh how sweet.....! A married couple in their early 60s are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant. Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table. She said, 'For being such an exemplary married couple and for being loving to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish.' The wife answered, 'Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband.' The fairy waved her magic wand and - poof! two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her hands. The husband thought for a moment: 'Well, this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this will never come again. I'm sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me.' The wife, and the fairy, were deeply disappointed, but a wish is a wish.! So the fairy waved her magic wand and poof!... The husband became 92 years old. The moral of this story: Men who are ungrateful bastards should remember fairies are female......

Bad Day There I was, sitting at the bar, staring at my drink, when a really big, trouble-making biker steps up next to me, grabs my drink, and gulps it down in one swig. "Well, whatcha gonna do about it?" he says menacingly, as I burst into tears. "Come on, man," the biker says, "I didn't think you'd CRY. I can’t stand to see a man crying." "This is the worst day of my life," I said. "I'm a complete failure. I was late to a meeting and my boss fired me. When I went to the parking lot, I found my car had been stolen and I don't have any insurance. I left my wallet in the cab I took home. I found my wife in bed with the gardener, and then my dog bit me, so I came to this bar to work up the courage to put an end to it all. I buy a drink, drop the capsule in it, and was sitting here watching the poison dissolve when you show up and drink the whole thing!! But enough about me, how's your day going?"

Questions That Haunt Me!

Apple Apple does it again!

Answers on a postcard please! 1. Can you cry under water? 2. How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered? 3. Why do you have to 'put your two cents in'... but it's only a 'penny for your thoughts'? Where's that extra penny going to? 4. Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity? 5. Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

Apple announced today that it has developed a breast implant that can store and play music. The iTit will cost from 499€ to 699€, depending on cup and speaker size. This is considered a major social breakthrough because women are always complaining about men staring at their breasts and not listening to them.

6. Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're going to see you naked anyway. 7. Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune? Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

New Mum In Town - Carnival Jazmin is two - can you believe it?! I certainly cannot, and she is a fully fledged member of the terrible twos club (I think she was given a free pass). Crikey - how many tantrums can a toddler have in one day? Yikes! As a result, a ‘silla de pensar’ (thinking chair) has been set up and the fridge is always stocked with a bottle (or two) of vino, ready to help Mummy unwind at the end of these challenging days.... This past month was carnival. Unfortunately, I missed the big celebrations due to illness, but Miss J did not AND she had her own little party at nursery...hmm, is it wrong that my two-year-old is in much more social demand than I am? I wonder, I wonder... Anyhow, baby girl was given a tiger outfit for the occasion (quite fitting) and quiet excitement surrounded the build-up to the big dressing-up day. Wednesday, and Jazmin's carnival party arrived! Yahoo, I couldn't wait to dress her up ─ my little tiger. She was bound to be the bestdressed girly there (spoken like a true Mama). The beginning of the morning went well. Breakfast was eaten and we had on the brown leggings and the brown top which went under the tiger's body. Then, the big moment arrived... tiger time..... ROAR ROAR ROAR (to quote a tiger). Jazmin, however, had other ideas! Meltdown. Everything went to pot and panic mode - aarrgghh (that was Mummy's cries). Little J did not want to wear the costume; her reaction to the tiger was NO NO NO! She definitely has not got confidence or assertiveness problems! The tiger was launched across the living room, and the smallest person in the room was successfully making the most noise... from her bedroom floor, with kicking legs and air punches I may add. Nice touch, huh. My reaction? Keep calm and rack brain (somewhat neglected) for supernanny top tips - nada. I approached her (with caution).. big mistake; the escalated tantrum just escalated more. I had no option but to ignore her (and go against all mothering instincts) but, after what seemed like an eternity, tantrum mode was suddenly switched off and she was my lil Jazmin again. Phew. Note to self ─ do not pay attention (negative or positive) to any future tantrums! So, with tiger in hand, we scurried off to nursery and she entered rather bewildered because she was the only one in normal clothes.... will she learn from this? Probably not, but hey,

that's kids. A few hours later, and after a much-needed relaxing cup of cafe con leche, I was back for pick up. Heavens to Betsies, my baby girl was a tiger and very happy with her zookeepers (her teachers' chosen outfit; what were the chances of that, hehe)! Yippee! I wanted to do cartwheels, but I had left my camera in the living room (well, what was the point in taking it). Luckily, I whipped out my smartphone (thank you, evolving modern technology) and was trigger happy with it. What fabulous snaps I had, and they were ready for the whatsapp send out to all contacts! My tiger posed and roared, and she did not stop roaring until it was siesta time..... She looked wonderful and I can positively say that she was the cutest tiger (and very, very scary, obviously)! Now Jazmin loves dressing up, and she even went to nursery dressed as a fairy the other day...for no reason, other than she felt like it. Cool. When and why do we adults lose that attitude and become aware/concerned of others' judgements? Our children really are the best teachers; we have a lot to learn from them!!

A True Story A woman, a car and a mattress A woman ran over a spring-interior mattress on the motorway. She decided not to worry -- and kept on driving. It caught on the undercarriage of her Ford. The ensuing jumble finally whipped around enough to tear a hole in the fuel tank.

"Made a sort of a noise" -- I'll bet it did!

The subsequent lack of fuel is what finally brought her vehicle to its knees. She had managed to drive 30 miles, with a 60 pound tangle of stuff wrapped around her drive shaft. She had it towed to her Ford dealership, and complained that the vehicle made a 'sort of a noise' when she was driving at high speeds. Here are the photos of what they found at her Ford Dealership. The last photo is by far the best.

They still can't believe their eyes and still wondering how to remove It!

The Problem With Direct Translations! The restaurant: Our menus have been carefully chosen to be ordinary and unexciting. At dinner, our quartet will circulate from table to table, and fiddle with you.

Brilliant Beijing Hotel Brochure - Translated as only they can A friend went to Beijing recently and was given this brochure by the hotel. It is precious. She is keeping it and reading it whenever she feels depressed. Obviously, it has been translated directly, word for word from Mandarin to English. getting There: Our representative will make you wait at the airport. The bus to the hotel runs along the lake shore. Soon you will feel pleasure in passing water. You will know that you are getting near the hotel, because you will go round the bend. The manager will await you in the entrance hall. He always tries to have intercourse with all new guests. The hotel: This is a family hotel, so children are very welcome. We of course are always pleased to accept adultery. Highly skilled nurses are available in the evenings to put down your children. Guests are invited to conjugate in the bar and expose themselves to others. But please note that ladies are not allowed to have babies in the bar. We organise social games, so no guest is ever left alone to play with themself.

your room: Every room has excellent facilities for your private parts. In winter, every room is on heat. Each room has a balcony offering views of outstanding obscenity!.. You will not be disturbed by traffic noise, since the road between the hotel and the lake is used only by pederasts. Bed: Your bed has been made in accordance with local tradition. If you have any other ideas please ring for the chambermaid. Please take advantage of her. She will be very pleased to squash your shirts, blouses and underwear. If asked, she will also squeeze your trousers. Above All: When you leave us at the end of your holiday, you will have no hope. You will struggle to forget it.

1. The sport of choice for the urban poor is SOCCER.

Any Irish Film Producer Out There

Donation To Caritas

A Cinema Society called "From the ruin to Paradise" here on the Costa del Sol, have been making a very ambitious project for many years, since their foundation started in 1998.

On Thursday 15th March, members of the El Valle Drama Group made a presentation to the Caritas charity in Velez Malaga, a cheque for €300.00

Their last film, Hell Chess was watched in New York recently. Bruce Joel Rubin, filmmaker and Oscar winner for the film Ghost, reviewed Hell Chess as "a very touching spiritual message". This is a very complex project and now it´s time for them to begin the long movie, the innovative final blow to change the structures not only to cinema but to philosophy. So, they would like to send a message to all the Irish cinema producers who live in the Costa del Sol. If anyone is interested in this project send an email to Thank you From the ruin to paradise society. Phone 627 789 812

Caritas collects and provides food for poor families in and around Velez Malaga. Caritas (charity) Europa brings together 49 Caritas organisations, working in 46 European countries. Together, they focus their activities on poverty, social exclusion and inequality as well as migration and asylum. The money was raised by raffle tickets sold at their last production, “CINDRELLA” at the Trapiche Restaurant in December. The first production for “2014” from the Drama Group, will be on 30th and 31st May and will be an evening of Comedy, Murder, and Mystery in “Murder at Checkmate Manor”. Tickets will be on sale from the 1st April. Please contact Alan Braisher on 952 510 988 Also check us out on the Drama groups website at

we offer garden design and general maintenance including:

Civil & Fiscal Resident The differences! By Helping Axarquia Most people are pretty good at getting their civil residency from the National Police and are keen to show that they are not just passing trade. However, not everyone is aware that there is more to residency than your sheet of green paper (Civil Resident). For the fiscal residency, you need a certificate from the Tax Office and for this you have to declare your income tax in Spain(Form 100) every year. Civil residency is, in fact, pretty useless when it comes to financial matters. For example, when capital gains or inheritance tax is due, if you can’t prove you are a fiscal resident then you can end up paying non-resident taxes and there are big differences between the two. For example, if you live in Andalucia and you are a married couple with a house valued at 200.000€, with both names on the deed, when one of you dies if the remaining spouse can’t prove fiscal residency then they will be charged 9.833,47€ in inheritance tax. If they can prove fiscal residency then the tax is zero. The information provided in this article is not intended to be legal advice, but merely conveys general information related to legal issues.

& t i u Fr Facts erry b Veg e Straw Th

The strawberry is called ‘the queen of fruits” in Asian countries because it’s packed with health benefits. These juicy heart-shaped delights have much more to offer beyond sweetness and flavour! Compared to fruits such as apples, oranges or bananas, strawberries have the highest amount of nutrients. The red colouring contains anthocyanins, which stimulate the burning of stored fat. When a group of animals were fed a high-fat diet along with anthocyanins, they gained 24 percent less weight than the animals eating the high-fat diet without added anthocyanins.

The compound nitrate found in strawberries promotes blood flow and oxygen in our body, which is great for weight loss. Eating three or more servings of fruit such as strawberries may lower the risk of macular degeneration, a condition resulting in vision loss.

The anthocyaninscan boost short term memory by 100 percent in eight weeks. One cup of strawberries contains only 54 calories and are high in fibre. Strawberries lower blood levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a signal of inflammation in the body. In a study, women who ate 16 or more strawberries per week were 14 percent less likely to have elevated levels of CRP. Flavonoids — which are responsible for the colour and flavour of strawberries — lower the risk for heart disease. Strawberries contain potassium, vitamin K and magnesium which are important for bone health. Studies show freeze-dried strawberry powder may help prevent human oesophageal cancer. Strawberries are filled with biotin, which helps build strong hair and nails. They also contain the antioxidant ellagic acid, which protects the elastic fibres in our skin to prevent sagging.

Zafarraya which was at that time a Spanish colony.

Although (Ventas de ) Zafarraya is the Gateway to Granada Province and not Axarquía at all, it is only just outside la Comarca and finishes off my A – Z nicely! So I set off to drive up through the Boquete de Zafarraya armed with my camera to share with you the most outstanding views that you get when you drive back through the pass and the Axarquía unfolds in front of you. There are two Zafarrayas, the first one you come across as you drive through the pass is Ventas de Zafarraya, named for the Ventas (Inns) that served the many weary travelers who changed their exhausted horses and took shelter and refreshment before travelling onto to Granada. The other Zafarraya is just 3 klms to the left and the most significant building that towers above this small village is its ruined church which is floodlit at night. Destroyed during the earthquake in 1884 it has such a romantic feel to it that I would imagine church services held here amongst the ruins would be preferable to those held within the church that was built to replace it at the end of the XIX century by general Narváez with money coming in from Cuba,


In the main square in Ventas de Zafarraya is the Iglesia de Santa María de los Dolores. Having driven up to Zafarraya it’s a shame to just drive back again so why not take a lovely walk along the disused railway line which in the glory days at the start of the 20th century linked Periana to the Ventas de Zafarraya. Work on the line started in 1911 but was not completed until 1922 and ran for only 38 years before being closed in 1960. To arrive at the Boquete de Zafarraya turn off the A-7 Autovia at Vélez-Málaga and drive inland on the A-356 until just before the lake at Viñuela, before the dam turn right onto the A402 and you will see the p a s s looming up ahead of you. The road you are on is steep and winding and the cars and lorries up ahead look almost like a model railway as they chug along up to the clouds. There is a very nice bar/restaurant on the right as you drive through the gates to Granada province that as well as selling drinks and food has knives for sale behind the bar. Imagine that being allowed back in England!

This excerpt has been taken from Neale Donald Walsch’s chapter in The Light: Conversations with the Light. People ask all the time, “Am I really the Light?” There is nothing in the universe that is not Divine. Everyone and everything is the Light. Divinity is expressed through life itself at every level and in every way. The Light shines with increasing brightness from beings who have expanded their level of consciousness. If a person knows themself as the Light, they will experience themself as That and others will experience them as That as well. So to move to that place of consciousness, simply take another to that place of consciousness. When I asked God what it would take for me to get to the place I so deeply yearned for, He chuckled and said, “Neale, I get that you still think your life is about you, but your life has nothing to do with you. It doesn’t now, it never did and it never will. On the other hand, if you are clear that I sent you here in a state of utter perfection and it is only you who have imagined yourself not to be in that state, then you will move through the world no longer concerned about yourself at any level. In fact, your only concern will be for all those whose lives you touch. You will, therefore, give to another what you have sought to obtain for yourself.” The fastest way to experience yourself as the Light is to cause another to experience themself as the Light, for what you give to another you give to yourself and that will become eternally true in your experience.

I was horribly, painfully, terribly shy.” Hanks acted in school plays, including South Pacific, while attending Skyline High School in Oakland, California An internship at the Great Lakes Theatre Festival stretched into a three-year experience that covered most aspects of theatre production, including lighting, set design, and stage management, all of which caused Hanks to drop out of

The pike is a large, predatory species of freshwater fish.

Adult pike primarily feed on smaller fish which they ambush from their hiding places in the weeds, but they also hunt a number of other animals in the water including frogs, toads, snails and spiders. Due to their large size, adult pike have few predators but smaller pike are preyed upon by mainly land-dwelling animals from foxes to large birds of prey. The heavier the pike, the more likely it is that the fish is a female; male pike rarely attain weights of 10 pounds or more.

There are five recognised species: American Pickerels, the Northern Pike, the Muskellunge, the Chain Pickerel and the Amur Pike. Pikes are also one of the world's oldest fish, thought to have been found on earth for the past 65 million years. Pike are most commonly found in large bodies of deep, slow-moving water such as lakes, rivers and occasionally in large streams.

eggs at once.

Female pike usually spawn in the spring when the weather begins to warm, meaning that the pike fry (babies) have the longest time possible to develop before the cold winter sets in.

They inhabit areas where there is plenty of cover from the reeds, where they are able to lurk until dinner swims past. Pike are found in North America, Canada, across Europe and into parts of western Asia. The female pike often become the largest predators within their environment. Pike can range in size from just half a metre to 1.8m in length, depending on the species and the area which it inhabits. The grey-green scales of the pike give it perfect camouflage when it is hiding amongst the reeds.

A large female pike can lay up 200,000

The pike is one of the most easily recognised fish in the world, mainly due to its elongated body shape and sharply pointed head. The teeth of the pike are one of its most characteristic features as they are pointed and very sharp. Although young pike may have the odd nibble on plants, adult fish generally have a purely carnivorous diet.

Confession A man received the following text from his neighbour: I am so sorry Bob. I've been riddled with guilt and I have to confess. I have been tapping your wife, day and night when you're not around. In fact, more than you. I'm not getting any at home, but that's no excuse. I can no longer live with the guilt and I hope you will accept my sin-

cerest apology with my promise that it won't happen again. The man, anguished and betrayed, went into his bedroom, grabbed his gun, and without a word, shot his wife and killed her. A few moments later, a second text came in: Damn autocorrect. I meant "wifi", not "wife".

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of ARIES: March 21-April 20 A shift of focus means this is an appropriate time for Arians seeking the meaning of life to become something of a philosopher. To understand the world better from inner levels and to gain the knowledge you´re hungry for, keep inquiring and visit London! TAURUS: April 21-May 21 Time to evaluate important legal matters and to think about what you share with others, especially resources. Difficult issues such as inheritances, grants, loans, family money, and how you feel about death, need to be tackled. Courage comes from Taureans natural strength GEMINI: May 22-June 21 You feel disconnected from things this month, from soul and personality, from Earth and from people. This is a natural occurrence at this time of year for Gemini so just hold things in balance and in check and all will be well CANCER: June 22-July 22 Not a good time for Cancerians to learn anything new especially at, or related to, work as retention of information alludes you. Best to use this month in physical endeavours and general well-being LEO: July 23-August 23 In the mood or otherwise, April will bring Leo invitations to parties and festive occasions from people who enjoy your company. You may ponder on your childhood and come to greater understanding and forgiveness VIRGO: August 24-September 22 Virgo will benefit from time spent at home during April, making the most of your ability to nurture family and gardens, and to revive and recreate traditions connected to your family

LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 Communication via means other than direct may fail this month but direct, vocal communication with friends and neighbours will be easy and productive bringing benefits to all parties SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 Time to plan your holidays Scorpio – group activities or intimate getaways will work equally well and be thoroughly enjoyable from your own perspective. Love and affection flowing your way enable you to feel secure and confident SAGITTARIUS: November 22 - December 21 New beginnings are on the horizon and, sensing this, you rearrange your appearance for good initial impressions. In case your old self goes into shock at this, make sure to have a phial of Rescue Remedy to hand! CAPRICORN: December 22 - January 20 Distant and sad memories play on your mind as your soul acknowledges inner realities and takes care of issues arising. You can easily rally strength to meet, and rise above, these challenges AQUARIUS: January 21 - February 19 Friends and group involvement are important this month as your ideas flow and are recognised with keen interest and encouragement. Follow your ideas and refrain from conformity with the pack PISCES: February 20 - March 20 Work and projects may feel overwhelming so make a list for your angels who will help you finish things quickly and efficiently. Re-examine professional goals according to your revised ideas and feel life sweep through your blood and environment

) : a h a Jokes h A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then, he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed, 'Dad'. With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter, with trembling hands. “Dear, Dad. It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend, because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mum and you. I've been finding real passion with Stacy. She is so nice, but I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercing's, tattoos, her tight Motorcycle clothes, and because she is so much older than I am. But it's not only the passion, Dad. She's pregnant. Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a caravan in the woods, and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children. Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone. We'll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with the other people in the commune for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so that Stacy can get better. She sure deserves it! Don't worry Dad, I'm 15 and I know how to take care of myself. Someday, I'm sure we'll be back to visit so you can get to know your many grandchildren. Love, your son, Joshua. P.S. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at Jason's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the school report that's on the kitchen table. Call when it is safe for me to come home!� ------------------------------------------------------------There once was this guy who was going on a date to the movies with a beautiful girl. Before he went, he made the mistake of eating a jumbo can of beans. Right after he picked her up, he felt the need to fart, but he figured he could wait until they got to the movies. When they got there, he asked her if she wanted some popcorn and Coke. She said

sure, so he went to the restroom. The line was long, so he went back to the lobby, got the food, and went back into the theatre. When the movie was over, he goes to the bathroom again, still with a tremondously long line. So he figures he can wait until he drops her off. When they pull up into her driveway, she exclaims, ''Oh goodie. My grandparents are here. Come on in and meet them.'' He agrees, although his A-hole is about to cry at this point. They go in and sit down at the table. Finally, he couldn't hold it in any longer a tried to let it seep out a little at a time. As he squeezed out a toxic blast, he aimed it towards the family's hound dog Duke, in hope that they might blame the pooch for the horrendous fart. The girl's father stands up and hollers ''Duke!!'' and sits back down. ''Great!'' he thought. ''They really think it's the dog!'' So, he starts bombarding the room with a couple, more powerful, louder stinkers. Once again, the girl's father stands up, shouts ''Duke!!'' and sits back down. Finally, he lets it all go and the loudest most hair-curling fart you've ever heard or smelt rippled through the dining room. The girl's father stands up again. ''Duke, get the hell out from under him before he s**** on you!!'' ------------------------------------------------------------Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson were going camping. They pitched their tent under the stars and went to sleep. Sometime in the middle of the night Holmes woke Watson up and said: "Watson, look up at the sky, and tell me what you see." Watson replied: "I see millions and millions of stars." Holmes said: "And what do you deduce from that?" Watson replied: "Well, if there are millions of stars, and it’s quite likely there are some planets like Earth out there. And if there are a few planets like Earth out there, there might also be life." And Holmes said: "Watson, you idiot, it means that somebody stole our tent."

Jokes h a ha :) An Englishman, a German and a Frenchman are all in Saudi Arabia, sharing a smuggled crate of booze when, all of a sudden, Saudi police rush in and arrest them. The mere possession of alcohol is a severe offence in Saudi Arabia, so for the terrible crime of actually being caught consuming the booze, they are all sentenced to death! However, after many months and with the help of very good lawyers, they were able to successfully appeal their sentences down to life imprisonment. By a stroke of luck, it was a Saudi national holiday the day their trial finished, and the extremely benevolent Sheikh decided they could be released after receiving just 20 lashes each of the whip. As they were preparing for their punishment, the Sheikh announced: "It's my first wife's birthday today, and she has asked me to allow each of you one wish before your whipping. The German was first in line, he thought for a while and then said: "Please tie a pillow to my back.” This was done, but the pillow only lasted 10 lashes before the whip went through. When the punishment was done the German had to be carried away bleeding and crying with pain. The Frenchman was next up. After watching the German in horror he said smugly: "Please fix two pillows to my back." But even two pillows could only take 15 lashes before the whip went through again and the Frenchman was soon led away whimpering loudly. The Englishman was the last one up, but before he could say anything, the Sheikh turned to him and said: "You are from a most beautiful part of the world and your culture is one of the finest in the world. For this, you may have two wishes!" "Thank you, your Most Royal and Merciful Highness," the Englishman replied. "In recognition of your kindness, my first wish is that you give me not 20, but 100 lashes." "Not only are you an honorable, handsome and powerful man, you are also very brave," the Sheikh said with an admiring look on his face.

"If 100 lashes is what you desire, then so be it. And your second wish, what is it to be?" the Sheikh asked. The Englishman smiled and said, "Tie the Frenchman to my back." ------------------------------------------------------------One day an old couple decided to go to Jerusalem for holiday. A few days after they arrived, the old wife died. The man who worked at the local funeral home told him that he could pay £150 to have her buried here or pay £4,000 to have her body shipped over and have her get buried there. The old man thought about it for a while, and said that he would rather pay £4,000 to have her body shipped over than to pay £150 to get her buried here. The man who worked at the funeral home asked him why he wanted to pay £4,000 instead of £150. The old man replied "2,014 years ago a man died and was buried here. Three days later he resurrected. I cant take the chance." ------------------------------------------------------------I used to smoke pot before class. I walked in 10 minutes late with a bulls*** excuse, slunk down at my desk and hoped that nobody asked me any questions. I was the best teacher EVER.
