Father’s Day 19th June 2022
Celebration of father’s day in the UK, the
US and most of Europe and many other parts
of the world. In Spain, Italy and Portugal,
Father’s Day is celebrated on March 19,
which is the Feast of St. Joseph who is the
patron saint of fathers. In Spain.
Why is the Sixth Month Called June?
The first is that the month is named after
the Roman goddess Juno, the goddess of
marriage. The second is that the name comes
from the Latin word iuniores, meaning
“younger ones”. It also may have been
called “sere-month, meaning “dry and
withered,” though this term may have meant
June, July or August.

Championships will be the 135th time the

The weather is often a topic of conversation
and this is of no exception now as summer is
here. It is the most excellent time of the year
when dining “al fresco” is at its best. The cool
evenings and the eagerness, which comes
with the holiday passion of the tourists,
family and friends and more people arriving,
creates an exciting atmosphere. Spain offers
so much with its sandy beaches, lively
markets, several golf courses and great
A fiesta is a party, a celebration,
a thanks giving. To a Spaniard,
it symbolises the town in which
they were born: its Patron Saint;
its culture. Therefore fiestas are
important places, to individuals
and to families. There are so many
wonderful fiestas celebrated in the

June birthdays claim two birthstones; pearl
and Alexandrite. Pearls have been wildly
popular in jewellery for centuries because of
their natural beauty. Alexandrite gemstones
are extremely rare and desirable since they
change colour based on the lighting.
The two zodiac signs associated with the
month of June are the Gemini and Cancer.
For those born from June 1st to June 20th,
they are members of the Gemini zodiac sign.
Social, talkative and familiar with trends,
and is one of the most outgoing zodiac signs.
While these traits of the Gemini sign can
make them a lot to handle, their charisma
and intelligence is also refreshing, and their
magnetism is irresistible.

What is hypertension?
Hypertension, or high blood pressure,
occurs when the force of the blood flowing
through the body’s blood vessels is chronically
too high. This makes the arteries in the body:
less elastic, leaky, and narrower
Hereditary and lifestyle factors both
contribute to elevated blood pressure. Risk

This is why detecting high blood pressure
early is crucial.

Highlight those (many) travel moments in

Over the years we have loved exploring
Ancient Greece sites and have taken
many opportunities to visit, learn
about and absorb their beauty, significance,
historic atmosphere.... especially in Southern
Mainland Greece. where we have long-time
One temple site comes back to me today,
not because of its historic significance but....

Temples dedicated to the Goddess Demeter,
is its base with a few column ‘stumps’ and
pieces of marble scattered around the site....
the Temple is set among olive trees in empty
The Hiding Place
hill-countryside; we arrived about midday,
as the heat was starting to build up.
Walking around one side of the Temple
base I thought I saw something go ‘flashing’
along the sculpted under-lip of its Floor....
it was gone in a single, ‘Magic Moment’....
a slender, darkish-coloured snake no more
than 2 feet long.
Had we disturbed its secret hiding place at
the Temple? Was it angry? Was it the only one
OR was its appearance a ‘flee(t)ing
message’ from the Goddess?
If so, what was The Goddess saying to us?
JUNE 2022 | 19
At age 5, I began my formal education
in a small Boarding School for Boys up
in the Himalayas of India.... this was
an unforgettable chapter, a “Magic Moment”,
that lasted for a period of months in my young,
ever-interesting and challenging life!
There were about 10 Boarders (no daypupils)
at the School.... I clearly remember
some of the well-ordered routines of our daily
life, including meals and evening “relax time”
Before breakfast, weather permitting, I would
often go out into the School Grounds (really
the spacious garden of what had once been a
private residence) to look around, explore, and
be ready for breakfast and the day ahead.
One morning I entered an enclosed tenniscourt
in the Grounds and walked around it, not
thinking about anything in particular, when
my attention was drawn to something moving
on the blaze court-surface just in front of me....
bending down to investigate, I was amazed
to see a number of little, round, particles of
earth being pushed up to the surface to form a
miniature ‘hill’ !
As if this wasn’t “magic” enough there
suddenly broke out of the top of the ‘hill’ a
small, glistening ‘blob’ that began to twist and
turn, to free itself from the ‘hill’.... it was an
earth-worm.... and a “Magic Moment”!
Nothing daunted, I reached forward,
grabbed the worm’s head and tried to yank it
out of the ‘hill’.
But the worm stubbornly resisted my
yanking, NOT by sliding out of my grip but
by allowing me to stretch its body further and
further out of the ‘hill’.... how long was this
worm, I wondered?!
I let go, straightened up, turned away and
there, in the far distance, I was confronted by
a high mountain peak, beyond a range of dark
mountains.... a brilliantly-white peak against
the background of a crystal-clear sky.
I was looking at the Peak of Mount Everest....
and it was another, unforgettable “Magic

The UK and Malaysia started in June with
major celebrations to mark Queen Elizabeth

birthday. On 6th February 2022, Queen Elizabeth
II became the first British monarch in history to
achieve Platinum Jubilee - 70 years of reign and
Thursday 2nd June. This annual event has
now marked the official birthday of the British
Sovereign for over 260 years. During the Queen’s
birthday parade A Royal Gun Salute was fired.
What is jubilee celebration? Jubilees celebrate a
monarch’s reign upon ruling for certain periods.
The first British monarch to celebrate a
jubilee was George III in 1809. Several
monarchs including Queen Victoria
have held such events since. Also there
JUNE 2022 | 33
was a parade in 1897, to mark Queen Victoria’s
diamond jubilee, for 60 years of rule.
When was the last Jubilee celebrated? In the
Roman Catholic Church, jubilees began to be
celebrated formally in 1300 AD and are years of
forgiveness of sins and reconciliation. They are
celebrated every 25 years. The most recent year
of jubilee was 2000.
The Queen marked her 70th year on the throne
on 6 February this year, but she did not celebrate
her Platinum Jubilee until June. The reason for this
is because 6 February also marks the anniversary
of her father’s death, as she ascended the throne
the day that King George VI died in 1952.
The Platinum Jubilee celebration included
everything from the traditional Trooping the
Colour birthday parade for the queen to a starstudded
concert led by Diana Ross to thousands
of street parties across the country.
Elizabeth attended the Trooping the Colour
and a beacon lighting ceremony later that night,
but did not attend the Friday’s service after

THE BOVRIL BULL
IN A BOTTLE
Other than the little-known fact that it was
invented by a Scot, here are ten things you
might not know about everybody’s favourite
beef extract, Bovril. Created in Edinburgh in the
188os by Midlothian native John Lawson Johnston,
who experimented with what he called ‘fluid extract
of beef’ after starting as an apprentice in the family
butcher shop on Canongate, here are 10 facts about
this football fan favourite.
The name was inspired by the Latin word for
the ox and a popular novel of the time. The first
part, chosen by Lawson when he rebranded in 1886
changing the name from ‘Johnston’s Fluid Beef’,
comes from Bovine, the Latin for Ox. The second

part was inspired by the word Vril, the name given
to a powerful energy-giving fluid in a hugely
popular occult novel of the time, The Coming Race.
Tasked with supplying preserved beef from the
ranches of North America for Napoleon III’s army,
following their defeat due to starvation during the
1870/71 Siege of Paris, John Lawson Johnston saw
the potential for a beef extract with added protein.
He produced an extract made by heating
carcasses of cattle and reducing the liquids that
came off into a residue which was mixed with
powdered dried meat. This substance, which
Johnston believed was truly nutritious, overcame
all the problems associated with
the transportation of meat across
thousands of miles of ocean.
The French reportedly asked
Johnston, who had emigrated to
Canada by then, to devise a form of
‘canned beef’ that would supplement
the standard fare. Johnston instead
came up with a thick concentrate of
salty beef that could be either eaten
as a spread on a slice of bread or
dissolved in hot water to provide a
savoury drink, the product he had
earlier created in Edinburgh and the
rest they say, is history.
Johnston was a canny promoter. He organised a
stunt for a launch of Bovril at the 1887 Colonial and
Continental Exhibition in London by recreating a
Montreal Ice Palace in frosted glass to encourage
sales of Bovril from the chilly location.
The first Bovril adverts appeared in 1889 and one
enterprising employee went on to set up his own
advertising agency. The beef drink was his first
client. One famous advert showed a picture of the
Pope drinking a hot mug of Bovril.
It was so popular by the turn of the century that
was being sold in more than 3,000 British pubs,
grocers and chemists. It was available in South
Africa and South America around that time.
In fact, famous explorer Ernest Shackleton
was reportedly a fan
The adventurer was said to have shared
a cup of Bovril with Captain Scott on
Christmas Day of 1902, near the South Pole,
after a chilling four-hour march.
Unilever, the company that now produces
Bovril, sparked outrage six years ago by
changing its composition from beef to yeast.
The change was made amid concerns about
mad-cow disease and the growing popularity
of vegetarianism. After prolonged criticism
that the product had lost its taste, Unilever
relented and reintroduced beef extract.

As it happens, not all women appreciate and
accept their age. Many try to look younger than
they really are. There’s nothing wrong with that,
as long as you don’t use youthful clothes and you
understand the importance of not giving in to such
Dress smartly, elegantly and self-sufficiently. The
image of elegance creates a sense of something,
expensive, pedigree and gorgeous.
Fashion for women over 50 suggests a minimal
and concise fashion style. The softness of the lines,
strict necklines, fashionable cuts and expensive
fabrics will help to comply with all the laws of
dressing for this age period. Choose your clothing
strictly according to your size.
Here is a tip from international fashion designers.
Forget about retro style per se and even more so
about vintage pieces. Even if it’s a dapper outfit by
a big-name designer, you’ll look like you haven’t
been following fashion for 40 years.
Start your makeover with a thorough assessment
of your outfit at home as you’ll find yourself
looking in front of the mirror more often than not.
A bathrobe, just for morning and evening hygiene
and beauty treatments. Give to charitable concerns
clothing no longer required for your wardrobe.
With just a couple of sets of comfortable, yet neat
and stylish home wear, you’ll look in the mirror
as an attractive woman who has no intention of
ageing either in body or soul.
NELLI KAMALOVA an
international model says, ‘It
was only in my older years that I
discovered my potential. I learned
to dress nicely, use the right makeup,
and keep my posture. There
was a new lustre in my appearance.
All of us women, regardless of
age, are girls inside and want to be
loved and admired. Present fashion
is very democratic in terms of both
fashion trends and pricing.’

Welcome to the sun inspired
June edition of our
monthly wine musings.
This month’s wine term that
is well used and often under
appreciated is Terroir. There is no
real translation for the French word
terroir but terrain as you might
expect comes the closest but is both
less specific and emotive.
In essence the terroir represents
the soil, subsoil, underlying rock
and chemical properties allied to
the way in which they interact and
are affected by the geographical
climate, light, shade, wind, rain and
all aspects of its topological location.
All of these factors create a particular
terroir and a particular growing
culture and flavour for the grapes
produced, the difference between the
top and bottom of a slope will add
variety to the growing conditions
as any keen gardener is aware. A
good wine maker takes all of this
into account when arriving at their
optimum yield and quality. The
single most important aspect of the
terroir, assuming it has the necessary
climate for vines to flourish, is water
supply and minerals, the balance
of this being crucial as too much
will cause the vines to become too
vigorous in its growth of shoots
and leaves that will inhibit the fruit
growth. Too little which is a bigger
risk in Spain has the opposite affect
and the plant conserves energy and
under produces fruit. In short, the
terroir is of upmost importance to a
As for the wine itself today we will
consider which reds can be drunk
Many people dismiss this concept
completely, but this shouldn’t
necessarily be the case. The main thing
to consider is which type of wine
and how cold. The sense of smell is
a key factor in enjoying a good wine
and the fact that red wine generally
has a higher molecular weight means
that it needs to be warmer, in order
for the bouquet to open up and the
wine to present at its best, white
wines are naturally more open on
the nose when cold. For this reason,
when considering a wine to be served
chilled you should look for a young
or “Joven” wine. Look for something
fruity that has a lower alcohol content
and steer clear of anything that has
had any good length of time in an Oak
barrel as this will not drink at its best
The most commonly known reds
that serve well chilled are Beaujolais
as they are produced primarily to be
fruity wines drunk young and share
similar characteristics with whites.
For Spanish reds to drink at a
colder temperature look for lighter
Tempranillo’s or Garnacha, these are
the main grapes of the Rioja region
so a young low alcohol wine from
here will work well. One region
particularly good for young light
reds is Galicia so you should find an
interesting option from here.
As for how much to chill a red the
ideal temperature for light reds would
be 10-12 degrees C, therefore for a
at room temperature, fill an ice
bucket with half ice and half water and
sit for 15 to 20 mins or alternatively
place in the fridge for 20 minutes or
so, place yourself in a nice shaded spot
pour and enjoy.
Until next time.
Until next time, Salud!

42 | OUT AND ABOUT COSTA BLANCA A MEDIUM RARE
We Spiritualists are a minority group,
albeit a group that I am very proud to
be a part of. We believe quite simply
that the human body is a vehicle for the soul,
and that stored in this soul is the journey of life
as we have lived it. Only the body dies. The soul
survives! It records all that we have achieved as
The World is full of sceptics. They are convinced
that they are right, but their lack of opinion,
although they are entitled to it of course, brings
considerable negative energies; especially when
spiritually matters are concerned. I have been
asked to prove that I am a Medium, and my
instant reply was to ask the questioner to prove
I was not. The trouble is that if I was to give
a demonstration to the sceptic, they wouldn’t
stay around to see or hear what I had to do. So
there comes stalemate. But if you have no faith
whatsoever, and cannot see beyond the box, then
maybe you are fuelled by negativity to start with.
Spiritual readers ask me to convince their non
believing partners that the Spirit World exists,
and this is very hard to do. Rather than to keep
an open and free mind these sceptics block all
possibilities, and then in return offer no solution
to the matter whatsoever. Closed minds and
closed hearts. One wonders what they do believe
Of course it isn’t easy to believe in the unseen.
World religions trot out stories from the past that
maybe we cannot identify with, and ask people
to believe in miracles, and it is a hard concept
and a personal choice to choose to believe or not.
Beliefs are a contract after all, and a contract that
many do not wish to sign. The ancient Egyptians
worshipped what they could see, and elevated to
Gods; the River Nile, Cats and Dogs and the Sun.
This meant belief could be harnessed by actually
being able to see the object of worship and to
glorify the status received as a result.
When I was told the story of Creation, and
that Cain killed his brother Abel, then took a
wife, I couldn’t understand where that woman
came from. Was she Cain’s sister? We were told
that there were no other people on the Earth
other than the direct descendents of the fatally
attracted Adam and Eve.
Curious? Well I have asked the question of
how it happened to exalted members of religious
organisations, and they have replied to me as
any good politician would, with no promise of a
direct answer. Just waffle.
As to the Spirit World, here Spirits gather
and wait, and from here messages can
be sent, proving survival of the soul and
underlining the love and devotion of those
who have passed, but who wish to establish
a conscious communication with Earth. That
is Earthbound souls who believe that the two
way communication is possible. Sceptics will
never get a message through however, because
whatever would be the point?
Faith rewards, and questions can be answered
and a better understanding can be established
with loved ones as soul survivors in the Spirit
World make communication.
After a journey we call our loved ones to
confirm our safe arrival. After the longest journey
of the soul we need to receive that call that is the
surety of the existence of a soul so contained and
surviving adequately in another dimension.
Your belief in Spirit is not obligatory or
essential, if you decide not to make it a priority,
then that’s your business.
Otherwise please use your faith to believe
in something because faith is overwhelmingly
needed to make great things work, and because
your loved ones could be missing out whilst you
test a faith that needs no more than the affection
and love that you can muster. Love protects and
cares and we are all here to read this because
somebody somewhere loved someone. That’s
how it works!

complaining of menopausal symptoms,
it is very likely that the response you
will receive is to be told it is ‘normal’
and basically you need to get on with it!!
The strange thing is that there are many
conditions that come with age such as
deteriorating eyesight, worn out joints,
high cholesterol etc. etc. But, do we say
‘Normal’........NO, we give people glasses,
joint replacements and medications!!!
So, why are some health professionals
reluctant to give HRT? It is because of fear
of risk factors.
Here at the Family Medical Centre
(Albir) we are generally pro HRT, so long
as it is given to suitable low risk patients
as safely as possible. For those suffering
(or who have suffered) from menopausal
symptoms, you will know that your
quality of life can be very much reduced to
the point that you feel a different person.
Loved ones may also report that you are
totally not yourself.

If you are suffering symptoms such
as hot flushes, night sweats, poor sleep,
anxiety, irritability, loss of libido, loss of
memory (to name just a few) do not suffer
in silence. The first thing to do is to speak
with an experienced, sympathetic health
care professional. Here at the Family
Medical Centre we offer menopausal
assessments. Appointments are not
rushed (some take over an hour). You
will be given a sympathetic ear and there
is always a box of tissues to hand! In my
experience, many women just want to be
heard. They want somebody who is not
judgemental to listen to them. Sometimes
after a really good ‘heart to heart’ (and
often a good cry) women decide not to go
the HRT route but to try other things to
Unfortunately there is not one form of
HRT that will help all symptoms. During
a menopause assessment, we try to to get
a clear picture (from lots of questions!) of
what symptoms are most troublesome to
a woman and to ascertain what symptoms
they can or can’t put up with! All women
are different. The other task is to assess the
risks for that particular patient by taking
a careful personal medical history and
family medical history. In certain cases we
could not be able to consider giving HRT.
If following the menopause assessment
it was felt that the benefits of HRT would
outweigh the risks (having explained them
to the patient) our G.P. would make the
final decision about prescribing HRT.
We always point out to patients that this
is not a ‘quick fix’. The normal procedure
is for the patient to come back in 3 months
for a review. If there is an improvement
in symptoms (and quality of life) and the
woman wants to continue, the doctor
would then prescribe for a further 6
months. After a 6 month review, if all is
well the patient can then just have an

The beauty of this recipe is not only its simplicity, but its
unusual sauce, and the fact that you can use any cut of
pork you like -
Coat the pork (cubes, chops, slices - whatever) with
seasoned flour and shallow fry in a mixture of oil and
butter (or margerine) till coloured. Remove from the
pan, add more oil if necessary, and fry 1 large chopped
onion + 2 sticks chopped celery over medium heat.
Lower the heat and add 1 heaped tspn curry powder
and a sprinkling of flour. Stir in 3/4 pint hot stock (a
dissolved chicken stock cube is fine). Replace the pork
and cover the pan. Simmer slowly for 3/4 hour. Stir in
the juice of 1 lemon + 1 cup of cream, and turn off the
heat. Correct seasoning to taste.*
Serve with a jacket potato or a selection of vegetables.
* This is where you can personalise the recipe if you
(a) It will not taste like a curry at this point. But you can
add more curry powder and serve it with rice if you wish.
(b) To make a more fruity sauce, add some orange
segments or pieces of mango before serving.
(c) Add chopped apple to the onion and celery - and
maybe some chopped sage.

The Fountain of Life
by Anne Rodger
The fountain is the source
The beginning of the natural stream
A well-spring of water - clear and true
The Embarkation, commencement
The Spring of the dream.
The dream of a life that will follow a course
Pre-determined or chance
Who knows the way?
The path it will take?
The speed and the flow?
The whole of life’s pattern
Caught up in its sway.
It bursts forth at the origin
Like a baby at birth
So new and alive.
With its energy spent
It will find its own path
The cascade of excitement
Will slow to content.
Sparkling droplets of water refracting the light
Are scattered and blown as they descend
through the air
On reaching the ground, they settle and pause
Then move forward together
The life-stream on course.
A stream or a river - what will it become
Narrow or wide? fast flowing or slow?
Some lives are shallow - exhibit no depth
Other waters run murky - their depth not to
Though the role of the fountain determines the
Its influence lessens as life takes a hold
The flow of the river through all life must be
Direction downstream before it fades out to sea.

This summer, I have to
be careful I don’t go near
the swimming pool as I
cannot swim and I fell in
a couple of years ago and
still have nightmares of the
time I was rescued. Other
dogs can swim but I just sink
to the bottom. I don’t even like the
rain. I start barking at water, it scares me.
Stupid isn’t it?
Last year Bentley used the pool quite a
lot. He enjoys swimming a few lengths. I do
admire how fast Bentley swims from one end
to the other. Alfie can swim but does not enjoy
it. He goes down three steps in the pool so his
front paws are in the water but ventures no
further. This is just to retrieve one of his toys
that had fallen in.
I am now wearing my cooling collar and
when it gets too hot the cooling jacket goes on.
Carrying some weight I really do feel the heat
but my cooling collar is like “magic” as I don’t
pant so much.
I tend to find any shade or where there is a
breeze to rest my body. I have a cooling mat
which I share with Alfie. He lies on it more. It
cools our bodies down.
Been having a yap with Alfie as
you can see he loves me to bits
but he never leaves me alone.
I had a few whispers in his
ear and said he has to stop
sleeping on top of me as
it is a bit warm. I am lazy
so him cleaning my face

adoring me, I enjoy ha ha.
I put my paws in the air
now and he cleans these. Yes

little dog Bentley is in charge and
bosses us both all the time. Bentley
has to have his own way and gets annoyed
with us, so we just give in. He gets grumpy
and Alfie and I are placid. Bentley is so lovely
but his dad is a “Yorkie” so sometimes this
grumpy nature comes out in Bentley. Most
of the time he is good fun racing around the
garden chasing Alfie. They both can run fast.

Dennis Waterman (24
February 1948 – 8 May 2022)
died at the age of 74. The actor
was best known for his roles
in New Tricks, Minder and the
Sweeney’s, and was a popular
household name in Britain.
He died peacefully on Sunday
afternoon (May 8) with his wife
Pam at his side in Spain of lung
cancer. The news is a huge loss
to the British entertainment
industry, with the Claphamborn
actor having enjoyed
a successful career
spanning back to the
1960s. As the youngest
of nine children to
Rose Juliana (née
Saunders) and Harry
Frank Waterman from
Clapham, London. The
family, which included
siblings Ken, Peter, Stella,
Norma, and Myrna, lived
at 2 Elms Road, Clapham
Common South Side, Harry
Waterman was a ticket collector
for British Railways. Two older
sisters, Joy and Vera, had already
left home by the time Dennis
was born, and another brother,
Allen, had died as a young child.
Dennis was an English actor
and singer. He was best known
for his tough-guy leading roles
in television series including
The Sweeney, Minder and New
Tricks, Waterman’s acting career
spanned 60 years, starting with
his childhood roles in film and
theatre, and adult roles in film,
television and West End theatre.
He was known for the range of
roles he played, including drama
(Up the Junction), horror (Scars
of Dracula), adventure (Colditz),
comedy (Fair Exchange),
musical (Windy City) and sport
(The World Cup: A Captain’s
Tale). He appeared in 29 films,
the last being released in 2020.

part of Waterman’s childhood.
His father had been an amateur
boxer and made all of his sons’
Waterman was educated
at the Granard Primary
School, a state primary school
on the Ashburton Estate in
Putney, South-West London,
followed by Corona Stage

Waterman’s acting career
began in childhood. His first

the House entitled “Did You
Ever Meet Rommel”, in which
he played a friend of Robin, a
German student by the name of
He became a household name
as DS George Carter in The
Sweeney during the 1970s. As
well as starring as Terry McCann
in Minder, Waterman sang the

written by his then-wife Patricia
along with Gerard Kenny.

with George Cole: “What Are
We Gonna Get For ‘Er Indoors?”

sometimes described as the
‘First World Cup’, in 1909 and
