From my memory, summertime in Spain is such a wonderful time of the year, and I’m looking forward to getting back and lying on a beach at sunset, paddling in the warm sea on a gorgeous day, and sitting in a seafront café eating ice cream and sipping vino tinto! I’d planned to be back already, but lately life doesn’t seem to allow me to plan too far ahead, so I’m slowly learning to take each day as it comes and trust in God’s / the Universe’s plan rather than my own! That means constantly keeping my eye out for the signs that show up in everyday life… and I’ve learned that the more we look for them, the more we see… Here’s an example that happened to me fairly recently… The number that always shows up for me and lets me know that spirit is speaking is number 33 or 333. On this day, back in February, I got a taxi to New Orleans airport and smiled big as I noticed a massive 333 on the side. Because of that one small event I had an expectation that something amazing would happen throughout the course of the day. And it did! I'd just finished a 3-day seminar on Internet Marketing to apply to my book writing, editing and publishing business. However, most of the information seemed a little advanced. Nevertheless, there was one session in the midst of all the others that really appealed, and I took pages of notes. Unfortunately, I didn't manage to find the speaker after to ask him the questions that I needed answers to in order to take further action.

On my way home, at New Orleans airport, a member of staff asked if I'd mind swapping my airplane seat, which was in row 8, to row 21 as a man in a wheelchair wanted to be closer to the front of the plane. I agreed and took my new seat on the plane. A lovely couple sat down in the two chairs next to me. We started talking and when I said I'd been to a seminar, they shrieked and said that they'd attended the exact same seminar!

We continued talking throughout the flight and the man revealed that he worked in close partnership with the one speaker who I'd resonated with (note: there were at least 30 speakers at the event). I silently thanked the universe. He was able to answer all of my questions in depth, plus far more, and he even said he could give me personal mentoring. Thanks to the magical and mysterious workings of the Universe, I now knew that this slightly new path would be a bright and fruitful one. The moral of this story is to always follow the signs, be open to incredible things happening, and know that there are NO coincidences.... everything happens for a reason. And maybe this is a sign for some of you!!! At

Strange News Bare Judge A female High Court Judge in Bosnia, sacked after she stripped off and lay on her office desk to sunbathe - has been given her job back. EnisaBilajac, 35, had been spotted in her office before courts began and could clearly be seen exercising in the nude. Later she was seen starkers on her desk, catching the rays of sunshine shining through her window. Unbeknown to her, the naked judge was photographed by another early riser at the council offices across the road in the capital Sarajevo. The snap was published in local media, sparking an internal inquiry at the court building. The matter ended up with the disciplinary commission of the Supreme Court, and she was fired after it ruled her behaviour had "damaged the image of the Supreme Court". The woman said, however, that her office door had been locked, and she was entitled to exercise as a way of warming up for the day ahead. She said she had not expected any staff to be in the building opposite at that time. In the end the Supreme Court Council decided she had not acted incorrectly and had not intended to harm her professional credibility, and she has been reinstated.

Camel Prank Comedian Hamad al-Amari turned heads in the Gulf state of Qatar - by turning up at a Burger King drive-thru on his camel. Al-Amari had been planning to perform the stunt for two years, and the fact that it has become YouTube's latest viral video means that he won't be getting the hump any time soon. He added: "I just finally got the chance to do it. I knew that this was something the world would laugh at, not just Qataris or people living in Qatar." Bewildered employees at the fast-food chain called their manager over to witness the bizarre experience. They saw the funny side and posed for pictures with the camel. Police arrived at the scene soon afterwards but no action was taken.

Tell Me This Won’t Happen To Me!! Old age is coming!!!! An elderly Floridian called 911 on her cell phone to report that her car has been broken into. She is hysterical as she explains her situation to the dispatcher: 'They've stolen the stereo, the steering wheel, the brake pedal and even the accelerator!' she cried. The dispatcher said, 'Stay calm. An officer is on the way.' A few minutes later, the officer radios in 'Disregard.' He says. 'She got in the back-seat by mistake.' ------------------------------------------------------------Three sisters, ages 92, 94 and 96, live in a house together. One night the 96-year-old draws a bath. She puts her foot in and pauses. She yells to the other sisters, 'Was I getting in or out of the bath?' The 94year-old yells back, 'I don't know. I'll come up and see.' She starts up the stairs and pauses 'Was I going up the stairs or down? The 92year-old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea listening to her sisters, she shakes her head and says, 'I sure hope I never get that forgetful, knock on wood...' She then yells, 'I'll come up

and help both of you as soon as I see who's at the door.' ------------------------------------------------------------'I can hear just fine!' Three retirees, each with a hearing loss, were playing golf one fine March day. One remarked to the other, 'Windy, isn't it?' 'No,' the second man replied, 'it's Thursday.' And the third man chimed in, 'So am I. Let's have a beer.' ------------------------------------------------------------Now this one is just too Precious...LOL! Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years, they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards. One day, they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, 'Now don't get mad at me ... I know we've been friends for a long time, but I just can't think of your name! I've thought And thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is.. Her friend glared at her for at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her. Finally she said, 'How soon do you need to know?'

De Cotta Law Custody of Children – Overview by De Cotta Law The Spanish courts have always had jurisdiction to decide on matters affecting children who are habitually resident here. However for many years this did not necessarily mean that Spanish law would be applied to decisions about custody, visits and maintenance as the matters were often decided under the law of the child’s nationality. Since the introduction of European Regulations on the law applicable to children the Spanish court will apply its own law to questions about the child’s welfare. The payment is decided in the country where the creditor ie the parent who is owed for the maintenance is habitually resident. Therefore a mother or father owed maintenance in Spain needs to apply to the Spanish court. Best interests of the Child For example if the parents cannot agree about custody and about the level of maintenance payable the Spanish court will decide based on the best interests of the child. Both parents automatically have shared parental responsibility. This means they should be involved in decisions about the child’s education, health care and general well being. However this is not the same as having joint custody which decides on whether the child should live with one parent but have regular contact with the other parent. If the parents cannot agree and the Judge has to make the decision the standard or “default” regime for the parent without custody in Spain is every other weekend, 4 weeks in summer and alternate Christmas and Easter holidays. international Perspective Where the parents live in different countries this can be adapted to take account of the travel needs and additional costs involved. In most cases the parents agree on their own pattern of visits and custody but it is important to realise the court will always protect the parent who does not have custody in requiring regular contact and the fixed regime brings certainty to the children who will have a routine.

In some regions of Spain such as Valencia the courts do prefer to see joint custody which does not necessarily mean exactly 50/50 of the time with each parent but may mean 3 days with one parent and 4 with the other or alternating weeks. This is always provided the court can see it is in the best interests of the child and is a positive and stable outcome. There are some pressure groups now fighting for joint custody for all parents but until now there is no national legislation though there are consultations proceeding. For more information on any aspect of family law or other legal matter, please contact your Nerja De Cotta Law Office for a private consultation.

Expolding Belly Button... Ouch!!!! Woman's belly-button exploded during flight after botched tummy tuck - and she is awarded £22k compensation Patricia Jackson was concerned when her bellybutton had disappeared after surgery only to find it bursting from inside her during a flight to Portugal A care home manager has been awarded more than £20,000 after a botched tummy tuck led to her belly button exploding during a flight. Patricia Jackson, 68, of Bridlington, East Yorkshire, had received surgery to remove excess skin after a tough weight loss routine. But years later her stomach burst during a terrifying midair ordeal on a flight to Portugal. She underwent an abdominoplasty by plastic surgeon Edgardo Schiavone, who worked for the Hospital Group in Birmingham in 2005. Extra skin and fat was removed and the muscles were tightened in the abdominal wall, said a spokeswoman for Fletchers Solicitors. Following the operation, surgeons told Mrs Jackson that they had not "created" a new belly button for her because there was not enough

skin left over after the operation. But it later emerged that they had left part of the old one inside her, the spokeswoman said. In 2011, on a return flight from a holiday in Portugal, Mrs Jackson noticed that there were blisters around where her old belly button had been and the area "unexpectedly burst", the spokeswoman for the law firm added. Following the flight, medics discovered her old belly button had been left inside her and she once again had to undergo reconstructive surgery. Earlier this year she was awarded £22,500 compensation after she successfully sued the doctor. "The result of my case means that awareness has been raised and it can hopefully change patient care in the future," Mrs Jackson said. Jeanette Aspinall, head of medical negligence at Fletchers Solicitors, said: "This case highlights how easy it is for an everyday cosmetic surgery procedure, like a tummy tuck, to go wrong, both with the surgery itself and if the proper after-care is not administered. "Mrs Jackson had the operation to gain confidence, and instead was subjected to years of pain and embarrassment."

Summer Time Fun things to do in the sun 1. Hang your laundry out to dry. There is simply nothing like climbing into a bed whose clean sheets smell sweetly of sun and fresh air. And it saves energy! 2. Wash stained items as usual and then throw them over a bush located in full sunlight to take advantage of the sun’s natural bleaching power (our ancestors used to dry their linens on lavender bushes so they would be permeated with sun, fresh air, and the divine scent of lavender.) 3. Anything musty or funky-smelling can benefit from some time in the sun: place items where they will get the benefit of the direct sunlight. 4. Try making Sun Tea. Children are fascinated by the sun’s power to change things and love to get involved in this process. Simply place 1 teabag (black, green, or herbal) per pint of water in a glass container, and leave outside in the sun to steep for an hour. Add sweetener and fresh mint, if you like. 5. Eat outdoors whenever possible. The light is

so breathtaking in the late evenings, and absorbing the sights and sounds of nature while you eat is a lovely way to slow down, enjoy your meal, and improve both your digestion and your attitude. 6. Water-play on hot summer days never goes out of style: you’ll be amazed how much fun you and your kids can get out of a lawn sprinkler or a garden hose. Or you can save precious water and take a trip to the nearest lake, river, or beach. It’s all about contrasts–warm sun, cool water. And splashing is so much fun! 7. Take some do-nothing time. Sit outside at dusk and watch the fireflies–they hold a special magic for people of all ages. We are so adept at DOING: summer encourages us to simply BE. 8. Take the kids to the beach, go for a walk along the sea front collecting as many interesting pebbles and stones as you can, when you get home make them into a decorative piece in the garden or even in the house.

Film Review

Chiringuito de Madera "El Meme"

Astral City: A Spiritual Journey (also known as Nosso Lar) is a 2010 Brazilian drama film directed by Wagner de Assis, based on the book of the same name by alleged medium Francisco C창ndido Xavier. Andre Luiz, the main character of the story, is played by Renato Prieto. He shares the screen with well-known actors and actresses of Brazilian television drama, such as Othon Bastos, Ana Rosa and Paulo Goulart, among others. The film is an adaptation of the 1944 book of the same name, said to be dictated by the spirit Andre Luiz and psychographed by Chico Xavier, Brazil's best-known and respected medium, having channeled more than 400 books. The book is considered a great classic of spiritist literature. Engaging the reader from a first-person narrative, Andre Luiz delivers his impressions of the spirit world he encounters after his death.

Linea Directa rEgistEriNg YOUr VEhiCLE iN sPaiN. sPaNish LiCENsE PLatEs aND rEgistratiON DOCUMENt Registering a non-Spanish vehicle in Spain is a complex and potentially costly procedure. However, you may be exempt from Spanish registration tax by getting Spanish number plates within one month of entering the country. But to do this, you need to become a resident. Linea Directa has been insuring expat drivers in Spain for over a decade and understands all the steps involved. Below we outline this process. stEP 1: OBtaiNiNg a CErtiFiCatE OF CONFOrMitY This is a statement by the car’s manufacturer that it conforms to EU regulations. You will need the car’s chassis number to complete this straightforward process online at The charges for this service will vary according to type of vehicle, make and country of 1st registration. stEP 2: CUrrENt LOg BOOk The vehicle’s original log book showing your name as the owner, the vehicles age and a valid UK address. You will also need the bill of sale for the car. stEP 3: rEsiDENCY iN sPaiN The Spanish residency certificate (Certificado de Empadronamiento) is your official proof of residency in Spain. Your local town hall can provide you with this document. You will need to take your passport and proof of Spanish address (rental contract, contract to purchase or property deeds). stEP 4: OBtaiNiNg a sPaNish MOt CErtiFiCatE All vehicles over 4 years old must be roadworthy and clearly display a valid ITV sticker. The ITV (Vehicle Technical Inspection) must be tested at an authorised centre, just as for an MOT test. You can find out the location of your nearest ITV centre on DGT website (equivalent to the DVLA). You can also call your local centre to make a booking. If the centre is busy, especially pre-summer, this can save a lot of time. The cost can vary but generally is around 40€ for petrol-engine cars and 56€ for diesel-engine cars.

step 5: OBtaiNiNg a sPaNish EQUiVa LENt OF a taX DisC The Spanish Tax Agency can provide your vehicle with a valid “tax disc” for Spain, which must be carried in the car when in use. You will need to complete the relevant form online and pay the amount according to your car’s tax band. You can carry out all these procedures yourself or you can seek the assistance of an accountant to do this for you. we hope the information provided in this article is of interest. if you would like to contact Linea Directa please call 902 123 104 More information on Linea Directa online at

City Centre Lost ! Basingstoke put back on the map after its name was replaced with 'Town Centre' by Google

Chris Quintana, from Hampshire's Chamber of Commerce, said: "This does absolutely nothing for inward investment into the UK.

Local business owners were left furious by the error with Google forced to apologise.

"This town is not called 'Town Centre' it has a name and it is called Basingstoke." Basingstoke is about 48 miles southwest of London. and it has an estimated population of about 84,275.

Basingstoke has quite literally been put back on the map after its name was replaced with 'Town Centre' by Google. Google Maps has now reinstated the town name on some browsers. However, as reported by the BBC, it is still blank for some users. A spokesman for the technology giant apologised for the error, before adding: "An engineer is quite literally putting Basingstoke on the map." However, it did not go down well with many locals.

New Mum In Town - Bye Bye Nappies - Hello Big Girl Pants So, amazingly, Jazmín is now two years and three months old. Each day she learns more Spanish, meaning that each day she speaks more Spanglish. However, the stress of nappy changes is too much ─ I mean, seriously, it’s a two-people operation and incredibly exhausting for all involved. Enough is enough….I have spoken with the nursery and they have agreed. It’s time to say adios to the evil nappy…here we go. It was our first nappy-less weekend. Fortunately, it was hot and sunny so we spent the entire two days on the terrace, making up games and drinking gallons of water. Needless to say, getting to the actual toilet on time was out of the question so we had the potty at hand, however it was a case of so close and yet so far. Jazmín very much liked to announce her ‘pee pee’, but afterwards…and she very much liked her potty, but afterwards…and Mummy very much liked washing floors and endless pairs of knickers and trousers ─ all weekend! The first weekend was a washout, literally. Keep calm. Patience. Nursery will certainly sort it out….Miss J had other ideas. She decided to hold it or, pee all over!!! Eeek! The knicker washing continued, and madam was enjoying her new game. Mmm, it was time to get serious…. “Jazmín – pee in the toilet, not knickers,

not suelo” said I.. and with that, she went to the potty in time; YIPPEE!! Who would have thought that matters of toilet could cause such celebration? Such an important moment – we had reached another milestone! After a few days I started to feel more confident in going out without the nappy. Jazmín was happy with her potty at home but not in public, though, which meant holding it…until Supermum suddenly suggested Miss J could pee like a doggy….wowsers, who would have thought that my little girl would be such an alfresco naturist! It definitely worked, and she loved her reward afterwards…chocolate! Like mother like daughter. After a week, Jazmín was pretty much potty trained, and Mummy was rather emotional. On one side I was overjoyed that the nappies had gone (apart from siesta and night time) and celebrated my baby girl, however on the flip side, I realised just how she wasn’t my ‘baby girl’ anymore and instead, was fast becoming my ‘little girl’ and more independent. The past two years have whizzed by, and I can’t quite believe it. Note to all mums Definitely cherish and bottle every precious moment ─ even the testing tantrums, as before you know it, our little rugrats won’t be so little and we will miss it all!

Professional Videos For Marketing Your Property Video revives marketing your property There are now plenty of choices on the market if you are renting or buying a house; sometimes too many to choose from. Seeing a video of the property you are interested in helps you to have a better and a more realistic impression. You can imagine yourself living in the house, maybe think about how your furniture would fit in or how the floor plan works for you. On the video it is easy to show the views from the property, or even local amenities nearby which might affect a sales or rental decision. Real estate agents recommend making a video of the property in order to stand out from the crowd. Raine Ranki, who manages rental properties on several websites, verifies that the properties with videos rent better than the ones without. He encourages all property owners he is working with to have a video. Very often you can see videos taken on a mobile phone by someone slowly walking around the house. These videos are of bad quality, possibly taken from strange angles and some-

times even showing dirty interiors or a messy garden. “If you choose a professional team you will benefit from many things,” says Jaana Monto from Sunnyside Services. “We use high spec cameras so good quality is guaranteed. We advise the owner on how to present the property and give them tips on how to make it look presentable. “The extra lighting we use ensures that there are no dark corners. Professional editing makes it more effective, shorter and therefore more interesting to watch. Those who are looking for a property don’t want to spend ages watching boring presentations.” “With one of our professional videos, you will attract those people who are specifically interested in your property; this saves both your time and that of the real estate agent. A video helps you to stand out in this overflowing market, and it is a small investment which will benefit you greatly.” See advert for contact details on page 44

Unusual Holiday Destinations Explore some different holiday locations transylvania, romania A trip to Transylvania should be on your mind if you wish to visit the home of Dracula, originally known as “Vlad the Impaler”. Due to the rise in popularity of movies such as Twilight and programs such as Vampire Diaries and True Blood, this has become a much more popular holiday destination in recent times. Attractions include Bran Castle and Dracula’s tomb. antarctica Antarctica is one of those places that many people will never get to visit. It is the most southern place on earth and also the coldest. There is no international airport, there are no native people and there is no formal government. The way most people experience this place is by Cruise ship, but some get to take a few short plane connections and actually step foot there. When there, a popular experience is to walk among Emperor Penguins that can reach 4ft and weigh 100 pounds. The scenery is breathtaking and this would be a once in a lifetime experience, where you can see whales, sea lions and seabirds in their natural habitat.

roswell, Usa If you fancy yourself a conspiracy theorist or alien researcher then this could be a great place to visit. In the 1950′s it was said that an alien craft crashed in Roswell, New Mexico. Apparently the Military took the bodies of the little green men back to Area 51, a secret military base nearby. At the time, the government claimed the “UFO” was just a weather balloon. However recently a former CIA agent, Chase Brandon, said that he saw a file that revealed it was an alien craft. Siberia Siberia is a huge region comprising of almost all of North Asia and central and southern Russia. In fact, 77% of Russia’s territory is classified as Siberia. Even though so large, this area only houses about 28% of the Russian population. Siberia gets frightfully cold in the winter and extremely hot during the summer. If you are travelling alone it is recommended to have at least a basic comprehension of Russian, as most museums and hotels do not speak English.

S & G Legal “CATASTRO”: THE IMPORTANT UNKNOWN (Law Firm “S & G LEGAL”) After many years of professional experience as lawyers and experts in real estate civil law, we are still surprised by the lack of knowledge about the Cadastre, despite its special importance for properties. We would like to provide some information about the Cadastre, which is part of the Spanish tax agency, and consists of a public registry of all properties within Spanish territory. Like the Land Registry, the records of the Cadastre contain information about the characteristics and rights of the properties, but they also include specifications which make it extremely important for legal purposes, such as; - The assignment of economic value to properties to be taken into account for the calculation of many taxes (IBI, sale value, etc). - The registry details and updates to the physical description of the properties (boundaries,

the owners of the adjacent properties, etc), with drawings and photos so the size, morphology, surface etc can be checked. Cadastral information, while always relevant, is essential in many cases as it serves to access the Land Registry. It also helps to solve problems of boundaries, etc. Unfortunately, it is very often wrong due to lack of knowledge that people have about this issue, so we recommend all owners to check the Cadastral information about their properties, and to contact a professional to help them to correct possible mistakes.

Readers Writes

Helping Axarquia News

Can I say how much I enjoy your magazine, always a good read and laugh. I attach a photo of a log smiling, after I cut it in half this winter!

The Padrón is the Municipal Register of the Town Hall in Spain. If you are living in Spain as property owners or tenants for more than six months in a year, you have to be registered on the Padrón. The UK equivalent is the electoral roll.

Dear Editor,

Can I say also how I appreciate your preamble on the theme of Light and self love. These are brave subjects but you carefully side step 'religion'. I think the message is very appropriate for now and here so keep it up! Best Wishes Neil

The more important advantages of ‘empadronamiento’ (being registered on the Padrón) are: 1. Taxation advantages (e.g. Inheritance Tax). 2. Health card. 3. To vote in local elections. 4. In some areas, you can use municipal facilities at discounted rates. 5. To purchase and register a car in Spain. 6. To get married. 7. Possible benefits/social services access. 8. The Town Hall receives funding only based on the number of people registered on the Padron. You can help your local Town Hall by registering. We advise that you register on the Padrón. The documentation is very simple: you only requie your NIE, passport and copy of your deeds or rental agreement. Before applying, please check with your Town Hall in case the requirements have been changed. The information provided in this article is not intended to be legal advice, but merely conveys general information related to legal issues. See main advert below.

& t i u Fr Facts Veg erries Ch

Everyone knows how delicious cherries can be, but they also have some important health benefits Cherries, along with many other berries, are a rich source of antioxidants, which help prevent or repair the damage that is done to the body’s cells by free radicals. Antioxidants replace free radicals in your body before they can cause any damage. Cherries are rich in the flavonoid queritrin, which has been found by researchers to be one of the most potent anti-cancer agents. When eating cherries, the queritrin is set free to fight off the body’s cancerous cells. Cherries also contain ellagic acid, a naturally-occurring plant phenolic known as an anticarcinogenic/anti-mutagenic compound. Some researchers say that ellagic acid may be the most effective way to prevent cancer. Queritrin, along with another flavonoid, isoqueritrin, acts as an antioxidant and works to eliminate byproducts of oxidative stress, therefore slowing down the ageing process. Another compound found in cherries--perillyl alcohol (POH)--is extremely powerful in reducing the occurrence of all types of cancer. Researchers found that POH stops the growth of cancer cells by depriving them of the proteins they need to grow. It has worked on every kind of cancer tested against POH. Tart cherries contain two powerful compounds: anthocyanins and bioflavonoids. Both of these compounds slow down the enzymes Cyclooxyygenase-1 and -2, which help to relieve and prevent arthritis and gout in the body. By helping reduce inflammation in the body, the anthocyanin and bioflavonoids also help eliminate migraine headaches. These compounds are

known to have similar activity to aspirin and ibuprofen. Extensive evidence suggests that the anti-oxidant melatonin, which is also contained in cherries, is significant in improving the body’s circadian rhythms. Melatonin is also found to help the body’s natural sleep patterns and since the body absorbs it rapidly, eating cherries can improve the way you sleep. Beware of eating too many cherries though, as they will give you too much sugar. Instead, opt for a high-quality concentrate, so you are getting the health benefit of the cherries without all the sugar. Along with blueberry concentrate and pomegranate concentrate, cherry juice concentrate is a super-nutritious, all-natural and absolutely delicious daily addition to your diet. Many people enjoy the taste and health benefits of mixing cherry juice concentrate with blueberry or pomegranate concentrate, so you can even ring the changes.

Please mention The Sentinella when responding to adverts La Ruta del Sol y del Aguacate

The La Ruta del Sol y del Aguacate takes us on a 75km trip through beautiful countryside and six municipalities, Rincon de la Victoria, Macharaviaya, Vélez-Málaga, Benamargosa, Benamocarra and Iznate. We start our tour in the seaside resort of Rincon de la Victoria, just 12kms from Málaga and 21kms from Vélez-Málaga, at the far south westerly point of the Axarquia. Here we find tropical vegetation and large expanses of sugar cane. Mangos , Papayas, Custard Apples and of course Avocados thrive in this area due to the exceptional microclimate which is created by the mountains of Almirara, Alhama and the Natural Park of Tejeda. We take the N-340 coastal road for 3kms before turning left onto a 9km climb to Macharaviaya, founded in the 16th century on a former Moorish settlement, this charming village with it’s cobbled streets has enchanted visitors who love romance as well as artists and artisans who have made it their home. The mid 19th century modernist poet and writer Salvador Rueda was born close by in Benaque and the noble Galvéz family lived there in the 18th century, it was the birthplace of José de Gálvez who became Marquis of Sonora and Minister for the Indies, his ashes can still be found in an urn in the parish church. Continuing, we go back onto the N-340 heading east until we come to the coastal resort of Torre del Mar from where it is just a short drive to our next stop the capital of the Axarquía, Vélez-Málaga. This busy, bustling town is steeped in history and needs a page of its own to tell of its many attractions, in fact the old town was declared a historic artistic monument in November 1970 and a must see are the beautiful paintings of local artist Evaristo Guerra in the

Hermitage de los Remedios, patron of Vélez. We move out of the centre of Vélez and take the A356 past Trapiche, turning left at Bar El Cruce towards our next stop Benamargosa, which is signposted as being just 8kms. Opposite the turn for Axarquia airport a track leads up to the Buddhist Stupa which is also worth a visit. As you drive into the village, just before the bridge on the right hand side is the 16th century parish church of La Encarnación. Opposite the church is a bar which makes fresh churros (long thin strands of doughnuts) on its front terrace which are very tasty with hot chocolate and not at all fattening! The route then retraces itself back to the A356 in the direction of Vélez-Málage until a right hand turn takes you the 4kms to Benamocarra. To make this more interesting you can just drive onto the dry river bed at Benamargosa and take it all the way to Benamocarra, in fact you can follow it all the way to our final stop Iznate. In the summer the dry river beds are used as roads and even a normal car can take this river bed route to Benamocarra and Iznate. Benamocarra boasts a 16th century parish church of Santa Ana and a new fountain in the main square where all the village men stand and while away the hours. To finish our tour we continue along the 5kms winding road to Iznate a steep village with stunning views of the mountain ranges, breathtaking at the best of times! The 16th century church of San Gregorio was rebuilt after the Moorish rebellion and restored 50 years ago. This village is famous for its Muscatel grapes and every year these are celebrated in August at the Fiesta de la Uva Moscatel which takes place on the first Saturday of the month when the locals firstly attend mass and then enjoy a flamenco festival and free local produce. The route finishes in Iznate and to get back to the coast you just continue on the same road down past the small village of Cajiz and under the autovia following signs to the playa, just a 15 minute drive away.

2. Before you sleep… Every night before you fall asleep give heartfelt thanks for the wonderful day you just had, even if it was awful. Think about tomorrow and set the intention that it is going to be wonderful and the best day of your entire life. Recognise that it is going to be filled with love and joy and that all good is coming to you so everything will flow perfectly. 3. In the morning… When you awake declare your intentions for the day again and give deep thanks, as though you have received your every wish. As you do this you will begin to deliberately create your life and you will experience the power within you to create the life you desire. 4. Think of yourself as a giant magnet… Whatever you are feeling creates a resonate magnetic force which draws events, conditions and circumstances to you. Expressing gratitude for these things projects a greater magnetic force that attracts even more things towards you to be grateful for! 5. Write and deliver a letter of gratitude to someone in your life… Or simply think about a living person for whom you are grateful. Allow yourself to really feel the energy behind this gratitude.

Recipe Of The Month

Here is Mr. Share with some more share advice!

Seared Scallops with Herb-Butter Pan Sauce - Serves 2 to 3

This months Mr. Share has bought 343 Carphone Warehouse @ 291p

For the scallops: 1lb. dry large sea scallops 1tbs. unsalted butter 1tbs. extra-virgin olive oil Salt and freshly ground black pepper

They are a telecommunications retailer in Europe, and have just amalgamated with Dixons Retail. The new company is to be named Dixons Carphone PLC. Last months share bought Sports Direct at 800p now 725p (ouch)!!


For the sauce: 3tbs. unsalted butter, cut into six pieces 2tbs. finely diced shallot (1 medium shallot) 1/4 cup dry white vermouth or dry white wine 1/4 cup finely chopped mixed fresh herbs, such as flat-leaf parsley and chives 1/4 tsp. finely grated lemon zest Salt and freshly ground black pepper 2 to 3 lemon wedges for serving

PLEASE NOTE The investments we make are fictitious. Profits are not guaranteed, so please only invest what you can afford to lose!

tip: Be sure to have all your ingredients prepped for the sauce (shallots diced, herbs chopped) before you begin searing the scallops. Remove the tough abductor muscle from the side of each scallop. If you feel any grit on the scallops, rinse them under cold water. Pat the scallops dry with paper towels; surface moisture impedes browning.

For further details, call Linda on: 665 510 735 Campo Cats Cattery

Heat a 10 or 12 inch non-stick frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the oil and butter, if using, and heat until quite hot. Pat the scallops dry once more and put them in the pan in a single, uncrowded layer. Season with salt and pepper and let sear undisturbed until one side is browned and crisp --2 to 4 minutes. Using tongs, turn the scallops and sear until the second side is well browned and the scallops are almost firm to the touch, 2 to 4 minutes. Take the pan off the heat, transfer the scallops to a plate, and set them in a warm spot. Let the pan cool for a minute before you make the sauce. Return the pan to medium heat. Add a piece of the butter (1/2 tbs.) and the shallots and sauté until the shallots begin to soften, about 1 minute. Add the vermouth or wine and simmer until reduced by about half, another 1 to 2 minutes. Add the herbs and lemon zest. Reduce the heat to low, add the remaining butter, and whisk constantly until the butter melts into the sauce. Return the scallops and any accumulated juices to the pan. Gently roll the scallops in the sauce to warm them through. Taste for salt and pepper and serve immediately with lemon wedges on the side to squeeze over the scallops.

Profile Full Name: Uri Geller Birthday: December 20, 1946 Birth Place: Tel Aviv, Israel age: 67 Nationality: British, Israeli tV shows: The Successor, Phenomenon, Back to Reality Geller's career as an entertainer has spanned almost four decades, with television shows and appearances in many countries. He used to call his abilities "psychic" but now prefers to refer to himself as a "mystifier" and entertainer. It is claimed that Geller is a distant relative of Sigmund Freud on his mother's side. He did not learn English until he went to school in Nicosia, Cyprus, at the age of 11 At the age of 18 he served in the Israeli Army's Paratroopers Brigade, and was wounded in action during the 1967 Six-Day War. Geller worked as a photographic model in 1968 and 1969, and during this time, began to perform for small audiences as a nightclub entertainer, becoming well known in Israel. By the 1970s, Geller had become known in the United States and Europe. He also received attention from the scientific community, whose members were interested in examining his reported psychic abilities.

His performance included bending spoons, describing hidden drawings, and making watches stop or run faster. Geller said he performs these feats through willpower and the strength of his mind. Magicians have said that his performances can be duplicated using stage magic tricks. In his first autobiography, My Story, Geller admitted that in his early career, he added a magic trick to make his performances last longer. This involved Geller appearing to guess audience members' licence plate numbers, when in fact his manager had given them to him beforehand. Geller starred in the 2001 horror film Sanitarium, and in May 2002, he appeared as a contestant on the first series of the TV show I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here, where he was the first to be eliminated and finished in last place. He is trilingual, speaking English, Hebrew, and Hungarian. In an appearance on Esther Rantzen's 1996 television talk show, Geller claimed to have suffered from anorexia nervosa for several years. He has written 16 fiction and non fiction books. He negotiated the famous TV interview between his friend, Michael Jackson,and journalist Martin Bashir for the TV programme: Living with Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson was best man when Geller renewed his wedding vows in 2001. In 1997, Geller tried to help the Second Division football club Exeter City win a crucial end of season game by placing "energy-infused" crystals behind the goals at Exeter's ground. Exeter lost the game 5–1. During the Euro 96 football game between Scotland and England at Wembley, Geller, who was hovering overhead in a helicopter, claimed to have moved the ball from the penalty spot when Scotland's Gary McAllister was about to take a penalty kick.

Reproduction occurs through internal fertilisation. Sawfish are ovoviviparous, meaning their young is in eggs, but these eggs develop inside the mother's body. The young are nourished by a yolk sac. Depending on the species, gestation may last from several months to a year. The pups are born with their saw fully developed, but it is sheathed and flexible to avoid injuring the mother at birth. There appears to be a lack of reliable data on sawfish populations, but estimates are that populations of smalltooth sawfish have declined by 95 per cent or more and largetooth sawfish have also declined dramatically

A sawfish's snout is a long, flat blade that has about 20 ‘teeth’ on either side. This snout may be used to catch fish, and also has electroreceptors to detect passing prey The teeth on a sawfish's snout are not true teeth, but modified scales. A sawfish's real teeth are located inside its mouth, which is on the fish's underside Sawfish are elasmobranchs - fish that have a skeleton made of cartilage – of which there are more than 1000 species. They are in the family Pristidae, a word which comes from the Greek word for saw There is some debate over the number of sawfish species, especially since sawfish are relatively understudied. According to the World Register of Marine Species, there are four species of sawfish. The largetooth sawfish and the smalltooth sawfish occur in the U.S Sawfish can grow to over 20 feet long. The smalltooth sawfish might be small in teeth size, but not in length; it can grow to 25 feet long. The green sawfish, which lives off the coasts of Africa, Asia and Australia, can reach lengths of at least 24 feet.

Threats to sawfish include fishing, bycatch in fishing gear, and habitat loss due to development, which particularly affects juveniles which seek shelter in vegetation in shallow water

Watch your feet! Sawfish are found in shallow waters, often with muddy or sandy bottoms. They may also swim up rivers. Sawfish eat fish and crustaceans, which they can find using the sensory capabilities of their saw, and which they can kill by slashing their saw back and forth. The saw may also be used to detect and dislodge prey on the ocean bottom.

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of

Any work undertaken in the field of humanitarian endeavor is rewarding

ARIES: March 21-April 20 June is an opportune time for Arians to focus on future collective goals and dreams, as you become sensitive to the welfare of humanity. Used to leading, during this time you would be better as part of a group of like-minded others

LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 Avoid confrontation and forcing your will onto others. Your values may be different from theirs so it would be prudent to step back and avoid conflict. Be careful with money

TAURUS: April 21-May 21 Beware that your life doesn´t become a consecrated data distribution as a service to the world. You can sit for hours at a computer, gathering ideas, information and facts to pour forth the waters to interested parties. This could easily accelerate exponentially in the months to come. Take some exercise, walk more GEMINI: May 22-June 21 You´ve left behind childhood ideas and religion in order to study spiritual philosophy and grow into higher truths but beware of being caught in abstract illusions, fantasies or New Age ideas without foundation in fact or reality CANCER: June 22-July 22 In the coming months, Cancerians will be concerned with money and sex. Don´t be discouraged if either allude you temporarily as, with investment in both areas, better times are to come LEO: July 23-August 23 You find yourself in a dilemma between career and family but resolving the issues creates a new and solid foundation as you establish much needed organisation and order throughout your life VIRGO: August 24-September 22 Any health problems should be looked at by both conventional and alternative health practitioners. There is a definite mind/body connection that needs confirmation.

SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 Your home and family are important to you but the bond may be slipping and need reconnection. Wounds will heal if you demonstrate your faith in relationships SAGITTARIUS: November 22 - December 21 Your written and spoken communication is exceptionally intuititive, enabling you to stay in touch with various cultures, folklore, music and arts. This could develop to become part of a new career CAPRICORN: December 22 - January 20 You interact and work with many groups, providing philosophy, change and consolation to each. Every encounter helps your heart and mind to focus on the bigger picture and aids your task of redeeming the Earth AQUARIUS: January 21 - February 19 You will eventually climb out of the rut where you feel you're relentlessly doing battle and being tested. Find and use your arrows Aquarians! PISCES: February 20 - March 20 Discrimination and boundaries are vital or you`ll wander off into so many directions that compassion fails you and despair sets in. It can be hard to choose from the many opportunities offered a Pisces. Time to contemplate

) : a h a Jokes h A man walks into a pharmacy, buys a condom, then walks out of the store laughing hysterically. The pharmacist thinks this is weird, but, hey, there's no law preventing weird people from buying condoms. Maybe it's a good thing. The next day, the man comes back to the store, purchases another condom, and once again he leaves the store laughing wildly. This piques the interest of the pharmacist. What's so funny about buying a rubber, anyway? So he tells his clerk, "If this guy ever comes back, I want you to follow him to see where he goes." Sure enough, the next day the laugher is back. He buys the condom, starts cracking up, then leaves. The pharmacist tells his clerk to go follow the guy. About an hour later, the clerk comes back to the store. "Did you follow him? Where did he go?" asks the pharmacist. The clerk replies "Your house." ------------------------------------------------------------A beautiful, voluptuous woman went to a gynecologist. The doctor took one look at this woman and all his professionalism went out the window. He immediately told her to undress. After she had disrobed the doctor began to stroke her thigh. Doing so, he asked her, "Do you know what I'm doing?" "Yes," she replied, "you're checking for any abrasions or dermatological abnormalities." "That is right," said the doctor. He then began to fondle her breasts. "Do you know what I'm doing now?" he asked. "Yes," the woman said, "you're checking for any lumps or breast cancer." "Correct," replied the shady doctor. Finally, he mounted his patient and started having sexual intercourse with her. He asked, "Do you know what I'm doing now?" "Yes," she said. "You're getting herpes; which is why I came here in the first place." ------------------------------------------------------------A lady goes to her parish priest one day and

tells him, "Father, I have a problem. I have two female parrots but they only know how to say one thing." "What do they say?" the priest inquired. "They say, 'Hi, we're prostitutes. Do you want to have some fun?" "That's obscene!" the priest exclaimed, "I can see why you are embarrassed." He thought a minute and then said, "You know, I may have a solution to this problem. I have two male parrots whom I have taught to pray and read the Bible. Bring your two parrots over to my house and we will put them in the cage with Francis and Job. My parrots can teach your parrots to pray and worship. I'm sure your parrots will stop saying that phrase in no time." "Thank you," the woman responded, "This may very well be the solution." The next day, she brought her female parrots to the priest's house. As he ushered her in, she saw this two male parrots were inside their cage, hold their rosary beads and praying. Impressed, she walked over and placed her parrots in with them. After just a couple of seconds, the female parrots exclaimed out in unison, "Hi, we're prostitutes. Do you want to have some fun?" There was a stunned silence. Finally, one male parrot looked over at the other male parrot and said, "Put the beads away, Francis, our prayers have been answered!" ------------------------------------------------------------Little Gregory wakes up in the middle of the night feeling alone and scared. He goes into his mother's room for comfort and he sees his mum standing naked in front of the mirror. She is rubbing her chest and groaning, "I want a man, I want a man." Shaking his head in bewilderment, Gregory goes off to bed. Next night the same thing happens. On the third night, Gregory wakes up and goes into his mum's room but this time there is a man in bed with his mum. Gregory hoofs back to his room and whips off his pajamas, rubs his chest and groans " I want a bike, I want a bike."

Jokes h a ha :) One day, a young cowboy and a cowgirl decided to get married. He was a man of the world and she was an innocent bride with no experience. On the first night of their honeymoon the couple started to get ready for bed. When they get into bed, they start exploring each other's bodies. Things are going fine until the bride discovers her husband's penis. "Oh my", she says, "What is that?" "Well, darlin", the cowboy says, "That's ma rope". She slides her hands further down and gasps. "Oh my goodness. What's them?" she asks. "Honey, them's my knots", he answers. Finally, the couple begin to make love. After several minutes, the bride says, "Stop honey. Wait a minute". Her husband, panting a little, asks, "What's the matter honey? Am I hurting you?" "No", the bride replies. "Just undo them damn knots. I need more rope!" ------------------------------------------------------------Why I Fired My Secretary I woke up early, feeling depressed because it was my birthday, and I thought, "I'm another year older," but decided to make the best of it. So I showered and shaved, knowing when I went down to breakfast my wife would greet me with a big kiss and say, "Happy birthday, dear." All smiles, I went in to breakfast, and there sat my wife, reading her newspaper, as usual. She didn't say one word. So I got myself a cup of coffee, made some toast and thought to myself, "Oh well, she forgot. The kids will be down in a few minutes, smiling and happy, and they will sing 'Happy Birthday' and have a nice gift for me." There I sat, enjoying my coffee, and I waited. Finally, the kids came running into the kitchen, yelling, "Give me a slice of toast! I'm late! Where is my coat? I'm going to miss the bus!" Feeling more depressed than ever, I left for the office. When I walked into the office, my secretary

greeted me with a great big smile and a cheerful "Happy birthday, boss." She then asked if she could get me some coffee. Her remembering my birthday made me feel a whole lot better. Later in the morning, my secretary knocked on my office door and said, "Since it's your birthday, why don't we have lunch together?" Thinking it would make me feel better, I said, "That's a good idea." So we locked up the office, and since it was my birthday, I said, "Why don't we drive out of town and have lunch in the country instead of going to the usual place?" So we drove out of town and went to a little outof-the-way inn and had a couple of martinis and a nice lunch. We started driving back to town, when my secretary said, "Why don't we go to my place, and I will fix you another martini." It sounded like a good idea, since we didn't have much to do in the office. So we went to her apartment, and she fixed us some martinis. After a while, she said, "If you will excuse me, I think I will slip into something more comfortable," and she left the room. In a few minutes, she opened her bedroom door and came out carrying a big birthday cake. Following her were my wife and all my kids. And there I sat with nothing on but my socks.

Saint Stevie the Scouse section A woman three months pregnant falls into a deep coma. Six months later, she awakes and asks the nearest doctor about the fate of her baby. "You had twins, a boy and a girl, and they are both fine," says the doctor. "Luckily, your brother named them for you." "Oh s***, not my brother! He's from Liverpool! What did he call the girl?" "Denise," the doctor replies. Thinking that isn't so bad, she asks, "and what did he call the boy?" The doctor answers, "Denephew."
