MGAFairLilyIt was with deep sadness and regret that the Almargem Association became aware of the death of Colonel José Manuel Rosa Pinto. He was a widely respected authority on the flora and vegetation of the Algarve, to which he dedicated much of his life.

Throughout the years, he won the recognition of the scientific and academic community, with which he collaborated with several national and international experts, in the scope of scientific publications, research projects and various activities and events of dissemination.

A rare span of years indeed. From the end of World War I through World War II, moving from the glory of the British Empire to its steady, grinding dismemberment, moving from social stratification to a collecting house of its colonial components.

Britain had enjoyed industrial leadership with its abundance of fuel and cheap labour and its steady flow of innovative genius. To a high measure, its mastery of the seas had protected its markets. As the sun set on those halcyon days, the sun shone on my simple life.

Amorim would have celebrated his 83rd birthday on July 21st but his dearth is said to have been no surprise to his family due to his increasingly poor condition.

Dermot Staveacre,If you want to keep it, give it away’ - Dermot Staveacre, who helped countless addicts in Portugal conquer their dependence on alcohol or drugs, has died peacefully in his home in the Algarve, on 9th June, at the age of 76.

The old adage about life beginning at 40 was not far off the mark for Dermot Staveacre. For years he had been an alcoholic on a steeply downward spiral, drinking a bottle of whisky a day. By the age of 41 he was a down-and-out. He had lost his home, his savings, his job and his friends. On the edge of the abyss, he finally sought help in an English treatment centre.

That was 35 years ago and that is how long he remained a non-drinker. For most of those years he continued helping other alcoholics and drug addicts make the same life-saving adjustment he made.

jimmyYoungOne of the original DJs on Radio 1 when it started in 1967 and BBC Radio 2 stalwart for almost 30 years, Sir Jimmy Young  has died at his home at the age of 95.

Jimmy Young also had a successful singing career with two number one hits, but this was cut short by the new style brought in by Elvis Presley so Young became a broadcaster on the new BBC pop station Radio 1.
