New Edit

 Welcome to this week’s edition of Fuertenews. 

Good to be back on the island and thanks to John for standing in.

Well I successfully missed the rain storms, had a small taste of it in the UK though. 

The kite festival was a great success last weekend. Many international competitors.  Nothing special to report this week. If this is winter its fabulous. Off to the beach!

Let me know any Christmas special events coming up that I can mention for you.

Keep smiling, life is good.
