been here since January and have visited most places on the island, and have been surprised by the high number of police and security guards on the streets. It is Carnaval time in the north, but never seen so many before even in the Los Cristianos/Las Americas area. However noticeably few on the streets in our area of the island.

Please be aware there are thieves wondering around Los Gigantes.  Three young men were seen on Calle Palmera on Wednesday trying to gain access into apartments. They were disturb and walked away.  Please be vigilant.

Let's all have a laugh / What is -------aplomb ???

 His Lordship was in the study at Downton Abbey when the butler approached and coughed discreetly.
"May I ask you a question my lord?"
"Go ahead Carson” said his lordship.
"I am doing the crossword in The Times and I have found a word I am not
too clear on."

"What word is that?" said his lordship.
 "Aplomb”, my lord.
"Now that's a difficult one to explain. I would say it is self-assurance or complete composure."
"Thank you, my lord, but I'm still a little confused."

"Let me give you an example to make it clearer. Do you remember a few months ago the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived to spend a weekend
with us?"
”I remember the occasion very well, my lord. It gave the staff and me much pleasure to look after them.”

”Also”, continued the Earl of Grantham, “do you remember Will plucked a rose for Kate in the rose garden?”

 ”I was present on that occasion, my lord, ministering to their needs.”
”While plucking the rose, a thorn embedded itself in his thumb very deeply.”
Carson replied, “I witnessed the incident, my lord, and saw the Duchess herself remove the thorn and bandage his thumb with her own dainty handkerchief.”

 ”That evening the prick on his thumb was so sore, Kate had to cut up his venison from our own estate, even though it was extremely tender.”

 ”Yes, my lord, I did see everything that transpired that evening.”

“The next morning while you were pouring coffee for Her Ladyship, Kate enquired of Will with a loud voice, 'Darling is your prick still  throbbing?'

And you, Carson, did not spill one drop of coffee!

Now that is aplomb!”
