Prohibido fumar en lugares públicos

alt  SUR, 21 January 2010

 

 

Parece ser que los hosteleros están muy preocupados por la prohibición de fumar en sus locales, y yo creo que lo que tienen que hacer es preocuparse por cocinar mejor en lugar de pensar en la gente que dejará de ir a su local porque no se fuma. 

 
España y los toros PDF
 

Por José Carlos Martín Palanca

alt  SUR, 21 January 2010

 

Muchas de las cosas y circunstancias que, hasta no hace mucho tiempo, eran de lo más normal del mundo, ahora resultan escabrosas y hasta discutibles.  Una de esas cosas, es la hasta ahora denominada fiesta nacional o toros.

A British MP for the Costa del Sol?

Giles Tremlett, the Guardian correspondent in Madrid, wrote an interesting piece in that paper on 1 November 2009, on the subject of ex-pats being disenfranchised. It was subsequently picked up by The Olive Press here in Andalucía and provoked an interesting online debate on its website.

The story raises some important issues.

If you’re interested, you can read the original article (Give a Commons seat to the member for Costa del Sol, 1 November) by Tremlett at http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2009/nov/01/expats-deserve-mps

Millions of Britons living abroad have no one to represent them. Sarkozy is right: it's time to embrace the idea of diaspora MPs.

 
Bullfighting - To Ban or Not to Ban? PDF
 

by Paul Whitelock, Philip Edge and Serafina Clarke

alt  Olive Country Life magazine, November 2009

 

 

Bull or no bull?

Like many, I have been impressed by the Daniel Craig characterisation of James Bond. The result seems more basic with fewer gimmicks. But less well known, since the scene is edited out of every film, is that when relaxing (in between killing people), Mr Bond will place his feet upon a desk, retrieve an issue of Olive Country Life from where he stashed it, protected from the routine of his daily life and proceed to read one of my articles.

 
The Trouble with the Spanish PDF
 

By Liam Kellehar

alt  Olive Country Life magazine, October 2009

 

 

With La Niña now embarked on her 14-week tour of the Southern Americas, my thoughts turned to the early travellers that wished to enrol Spain in the Grand Tour. How did they approach their adventure? La Niña had set off, armed only with an iPod crammed with pirated Linguaphone and the determination to learn sufficient Spanish, on the flight over, to travel the length and breadth of the continent. When I read David Mitchell’s excellent book, “Travellers in Spain”, I was surprised to discover that in comparison to some of the tourists of the past, she was relatively well prepared.

 
Lovely to See You, When Are You Leaving? PDF

Recently a friend arrived for a visit, bearing gifts of English newspapers, which we read to remind us of the life we had left behind. Skimming through these, I happened on an article by the doyenne of columnists and newspaper editors’ favourite, Philippa Space.
