Claude the hypnotist

It was entertainment night at the senior citizens' center.
After the community sing along led by Alice at the piano,
it was time for the star of the show- Claude the Hypnotist!
Claude explained that he was going to put the whole audience
into a trance. "Yes, each and every one of you and all at the same time." said Claude.The excited chatter dropped to silence as Claude carefully withdrew from his waistcoat pocket; a beautiful antique gold pocket watch and chain.
"I want you to keep your eyes on this watch" said Claude, holding the watch high for all to see."It is a very special and valuable watch that has been in my family for six generations" said Claude.
He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly chanting:

"Watch the watch --- Watch the watch ----Watch the watch"

The audience became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth. The lights were twinkling as they were reflected from its gleaming surfaces.A hundred and fifty pairs of eyes followed the movements of the gently swaying watch.They were hypnotized.
And then, suddenly, the chain broke!!!
The beautiful watch fell to the stage and burst apart on impact"

"SHIT" said Claude.

It took them three days to clean the Senior Citizens ' Center and Claude was never invited there again.

A few ladies from La Marina go to Benijofar at 2pm on Tuesdays. There's a meeting in a dance studio in the square on the right, by the cobbles.

There was recently a slimming club in the Final Whistle in Consum Square. I believe it was held every Tuesday at 2pm.

The diet is similar to the old Slimming World one, ie Red and Green days, if you are familiar with that.

Walking groups/clubs

Are there any walking groups or clubs in the Jaen/Martos area?

I've recently bought a house in Martos and want to explore the beautiful scenery, meet some people, get fitter and improve my Spanish.

All/any suggestions welcomed.

How to survive a HEART ATTACK

Please pause for 2 minutes and read this:

1. Let’s say it’s 7.25pm and you’re going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job.
2. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated.
3 Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are only about five km from the hospital nearest your home.
4. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far.
5. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy who taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.
6. HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE? Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
7. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
8. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.
9. Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!!
10. A cardiologist says If everyone who gets this mail kindly sends it to 10 people, you can bet that we’ll save at least one life.
11. Rather than sending jokes, please... contribute by forwarding this mail which can save a person’s life.
12. If this message comes around you... more than once… please don’t get irritated... You should instead, be happy that you have many friends who care about you & keeps reminding you how to deal with a Heart attack.

Hi Robin

The only hire shop we know of in the area is just before you get to La Siesta. It is on the road that goes from Quesada to Torrevieja where you have Carrefour. The hire shop is on the right hand side just after Escribano Horse riding centre.
Hope you get sorted.

FIGURES RELEASED yesterday by the Spanish National Institute of Statistics reveal 9,344 people of UK nationality registered as living in the province, returned home last year.
The figures are the highest within the Valencia region and run for the full year ending December 31 2016.

The amount of British expatriates living in Alicante Province has shown a steady decline year on year ever since the financial crisis, which crippled the country in 2009.
However, last year saw the greatest exodus back to the UK, putting the amount of Britons living in the province back to the levels of 2004.
The statistics show at January 1 this year 63,010 UK nationals were registered as residing in Alicante province.
This still leaves British expatriates as the largest group of non-Spanish residents in the province, with a total of 16% of all foreign residents.
The report shows that the lack of purchasing power felt by UK nationals since the economic crisis has seen the Alicante population fall by over half since 2008, but the numbers accelerated last year following the Brexit referendum and the decision to leave the European Union.
Although the UK tops the list of people leaving, other nationalities also left the province to return home in significant numbers. German nationals were reduced by 3,054 and French by 354.
The figures show an increase in people moving into the Province from Algeria (144), Morocco (1,131) and Columbia (1,049), wheareas Argentina, Ecuador and Russia all saw decreases in population.
By contrast, the Chinese population continues to increase year on year since 1998, when the statistics were first introduced. There are currently 8,349 Chinese living in the province, an increase of 80% on last year.


I imagine these figures reflect the result from leaving the EU!
We are a retired couple leaving in La Marina area and we are very worried about the future living in Spain.
So many conflicting stories of which many are FAKE NEWS!.
Seriously, does anyone really know what the future will bring??
