The new magazine `Siesta Time´ has now been published - it is available in both Spain and the UK. It is intended as a Leisure and Puzzle magazine packed with fun puzzles, articles, stories and a touch of humour. I am proud to be amongst the first contributors with my article `The Coming of the Mother in Law´and a feature (published under a pen name David John) `Do You Remember When?´ I hope the circulation soon builds up and that it is a success. For the 2nd edition I am busy writing a short story and a further Do You Remember When.......

This extract from an article I wrote on May 2nd 2008: IN SPAIN Expat life has been good for most until the sub prime mortgage crisis generated a financial tsunami the waves of which are still flooding in. This from the BBC news website today - October 24th 2008: Former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan has called the recent turmoil in the global financial markets a "once in a century credit tsunami". Perhaps I will move into speech and script writing!

Just got back from a trip to Blighty - caught up with some old friends and met some new ones. But (there always is one) I just could not believe the prices on some things! Incredible. There have been many changes since I lived there, apart from the prices, so I am thinking of writing an article along those lines. Now it is time to get back to work to make those deadlines.....

The Bryan Adams concert was truly awesome - he may have a few years on the clock but he still gives a great concert - the sell out crowd really enjoyed themselves including me! He did all his well known numbers plus some from his new album `Eleven´ Following day I was at The local classic Car Clubs anniversary celebrations - posing in an MG around the San Miguel fiesta - followed by a drive out into the country, hood down, wind in hair (and sun in eyes) brilliant! Anybody got a classic car for sale? - guess who wants one!

The 1st weekend of October is going to be busy for me as I am going to the Bryan Adams concert in the Volvo Ocean Race Village on Saturday night and will be writing a review for The Inland Magazine (TIM, November edition) followed by on Sunday I am an invited guest to The Phoenix Classic Car Clubs special anniversary day - and this will also appear in TIM with (hopefully) some great photos of the members classic cars. Other projects in hand include a walking article, some entries for competitions and maybe my weeks sojurn in the south of England will generate some thoughts for an article. I am also working on some ideas for TIM and awaiting confirmation from the new magazine, to be launched shortly on the Costa Blanca, of some articles that I have submitted. More to follow.............
