Brilliant Basil herb just so easy to grow

FOR this week, I have to talk about Basil, which is such an amazing herb and loved by most people. It is fresh and robust and so easy to grow here in the Canaries. The common basil (Ocimum basilicum), is the one I refer to, but there are lots of basil growing in different regions […]


I HOPE my clients really do think outside the box when they are in the salon … that they are open to suggestion and honest opinion. I recently cut a client’s hair, and she had not changed her style since the Eighties. She was in her late 40s but looked younger, and had short but […]


HIGH street supermarkets have been diversifying in what they stock on their shelves for a few years. You can walk into Tesco, Sainsbury’s, and ASDA and feed yourself, get insured, buy a mobile phone and clothe yourself all under one roof. The idea is to bring you a one-stop shop. Clothing, in particular, has been […]

Health body says: Ban sale of e-ciggies to kids

THE World Health Organisation (WHO) is calling for a ban on the use of e-cigarettes indoors, and that sales to children should stop. In a report, the health body says there should be no claims that the devices can help people quit smoking – until there is evidence to support this. WHO experts warn the […]

RUSSIAN manufacturer Lada have launched two new models and a new race-car at its home Moscow Motor Show, which is taking place now.

THE Direct Telecom Pool League is now back up and running, with lots of new faces. The summer break has seen a raft of players changing sides, and several new teams joining the ranks. Season-on-season, the overall playing standard has got higher and higher, and this year’s league will be the most competitive yet. In […]

136 is a Lofty check-out!

LOFTY, currently plying his trade at Marilyns in Silencio, has been a Darts League stalwart for many a season. And a thoroughly nice chap he is, too! And nice to see his name up in lights after he claimed Division 2’s highest finish with a stunning 136. We won’t mention that his team lost to […]

All we are saying – is give us a goal!

Ponferradina 1 CD Tenerife 0 I REMEMBER 20th April quite well. It was the end of a very long week of 40th birthday celebrations. And in Santa Cruz, Tenerife launched a thrilling comeback against Numancia. Aridane, Juanjo and then a rare Quique goal gave Tenerife a well-deserved 3-2 win to launch them into fourth place […]

Premier League preview

IT would seem, based on last week’s results, that the Barclays Premier League will be even more closely fought this season – and even more difficult to predict (well for me, anyway). We are fast-approaching the transfer window closure, and one or two teams look short, so I expect some last-minute panic buying. Last week […]

Real Estate dictionary

MONTHS ago, I promised to do a kind of dictionary or glossary related to real estate legal matters. And you’ve probably heard about these words: Abogado: Attorney; Lawyer. A person designated to act for another in legal affairs. In real estate matters, a buyer or seller of real estate may wish to hire a lawyer […]
