Vitolo stays!

THE madness that is CD Tenerife continued last week. Just 24 hours after saying he was quitting to return to Greek football, Tenerife captain Vitolo performed a U-turn and signed a new contract. Stating that it was never about money – he just wanted to feel wanted – he got his contract extension. Nobody comes […]

Paris chase Games again

PARIS is bidding to stage the 2024 Olympics, which would mark 100 years since it previously hosted the event. The city has lost three previous bids:10 years ago it was beaten by  London for the 2012 Olympics, and also failed to land the 2008 and 1992 Games. The French capital last held the Olympics in […]

What a stroke of luck!

THIS week’s article is quite amusing to say the least because last year, at the TUI Charity Open Day, I was the lucky winner of a seven-night stay at the Costa Los Gigantes hotel, right here on the West coast of the Island. For those who don´t know me personally, my life is somewhat busy […]

Know your tyres

TYRES form an integral part of the car, and the types recommended and permitted in both wear and depths of tread are  for all-round safety of the vehicle’s occupants and other road-users. Most people will replace worn tyres with second-hand rather than new, which could be as bad as, or worse than, the old ones […]

THE property sales market is still relatively slow, although we are definitely seeing signs of recovery. But many people are giving their property a bit of a facelift anyway. It’s either to make it easier to sell, just to update it, or because some items need renewing. What was fashionable 20 years ago, when we […]


IF it’s a woman she gets sympathy, but if its a man, he is ridiculed. I’m talking baldness, and the plain old truth is that you either accept it or you don’t. When I started losing my hair at 32, I was devastated. It was not only my pride and joy but a symbol of […]

The hugely successful Venture Restaurants noticed this and last week they opened their newest restaurant Char. This restaurant will do to Spanish cuisine what […]

She was the victim of Gingerism, and it seems absolutely unbelievable that people can abuse someone for being a redhead. But believe me, they […]
