It's running a little late - it has gone to press but you know what it's like!  It should be around in a week or so.

Yus, but seriously, the first paragraph of the first page says the producers want the paper to be used as a learning tool (etc) to those wanting to learn English (or words to that effect) and in that paragraph is an erroneous possessive apostrophe.   Why can't they properly proof read before printing it?

Hi Colin

It is a shame that you do not know the difference between a magazine and a newspaper. Also you can read the name of the publication, before you criticise any publication make sure you know which one you are talking about. The article you are talking about comes from the Ebro Valley News.

Reminds me of a Spanish joke that is doing the rounds....

Dos moros se encuentran por las Ramblas de Barcelona, y uno le dice al otro:
- ¿Cuánto dinero te has sacado hoy?.
Y el otro responde:
- 3 Euros.
¿Y qué has escrito en el cartel?. - pregunta el moro.
- Pues lo típico, "tengo mujer y dos hijos". ¿Y tú, cuánto te has sacado hoy?.
- 3.000 Euros.
El otro asombrado le pregunta:
¿Y qué has escrito en el cartel?.
El moro responde :
- "Me faltan 6 Euros para volverme a Marruecos".

For those of you who don't understand Spanish, here's a translation:

Two Moroccans meet in the Ramblas in Barcelona and one says to the other:
-How much money have you taken today?
The other responded:
- 3 euros
- And what have you written on your card? asked the Moroccan
- The typical, I have a wife and two children. And you, how much have you taken today?
- 3000 euros
The other, amazed, asked:
- And what have you written on your card?
The Morrocan responded:
- "I only need 6 euros more to get back to Morocco"

The Olive Press magazine is now out!  Look out for a copy - distribution points are similar to those of Catalunya Life.  I picked mine up today from Clibegas in Jesus - don't go whizzing over there until tuesday though as they're closed for the weekend, and monday as well as it's a fiesta.
