A 53 year old local man of the Canary Island La Gomera has been arrested in connection with the fires which has affected more than 800 hectares of agricultural and low mountain land and also saw hundreds of people being evacuated from their homes on Saturday. It is thought he started the fire by accident when burning off scrub on his land in Ibo Alfaro.
The weather has improved which has helped the fire fighters control the blaze. It is hoped to be officially under control later today.
And now to a topic which causes most of us great concern. Our children and grandchildren make full use of the internet and M.S.N. chat rooms, and we all make sure that safety features are enabled.

Spain is to ask that Gibraltar be placed back on the black list of financial havens, with the Spanish tax authority, Hacienda, considering that the Rock is not cooperating in the fight against money laundering.

Strong winds blew at up to 100 kilometres per hour and waves up to eight metres high lashed the beach front of the Spanish Basque city of San Sebastian, smashing seaside walkways and bars, officials said.
Boats moored in the harbour of the town near the French border in northern Spain were overturned and cars swept down streets by waves.
San Sebastian’s famous Concha beachfront was badly hit by the storm, coming just a week before Easter holidays which usually bring high numbers of tourists.
Water inundated some streets, garages and basements, shattered windows, knocked over street lamps and containers and damaged parked cars. One woman was reported slightly injured after being swept away by a current.
The damage could take weeks to repair although it was too early to say how much it would cost.
Spain’s state meteorological service has issued a warning of strong winds and waves along the country’s Atlantic coast from Galicia to the Basque Country.

The smallest is set to be self sufficient in renewable energy by 2010. El Hierro aims to be the first to be self-sufficient in clean energy.
A new wind power centre will be in operation by the year 2010 and will be capable of coping with the entire power needs of the island’s 10,500 inhabitants.
The Island is set to be the most advanced in environmental considerations with all its energy coming from wind and tidal sources.
It was declared a Unesco Biosphere Reserve in 2000, and the costs for the new developments are being met 60% by the local Cabildo government, 30% by the power company Endesa and 10% by the Canaries Technological Institute, together with 35 million Euro state funding from Madrid. Total cost of the project is 54 million.
Although not among the favourites in the run-up to the Gala, the winning design – an elaborate costume entitled The Golden Age – proved a big hit with the jury, which included screen stars Sofia Loren and Gerard Depardieu. The event, which was broadcast live on Antena 3 TV for the Canaries and South America, marked a return to the traditional Gala after last year’s controversial attempt to make it an entirely professional show.
