First I would like to
wish our readers a Merry Christmas and also to offer my very best wishes
to you all for a healthy, prosperous and a Happy New Year.
After much thought and debate I have now decided to stop producing
The Electronic LiveIbiza and until
further notice there will be a break from publishing and sending out our
free weekly edition each Saturday.
our webmaster is currently making some beneficial alterations to our
website where we will then feature all our previous articles that we
have published over the past 95 weeks since our first weekly edition
went out online Saturday 3rd March 2001.
these previous articles will be catalogued to make it easy to access
them and we will name this section of our website
The Electronic LiveIbiza Archive
where our readers will be able to go back and read the many worthy of
note articles that were put together by our talented columnists.
Emily Kaufman our “History of Ibiza” columnist was in this from the very
beginning when Emily and I started out together with our first weekly
edition on Saturday 3rd March 2001. Since then Emily has
written much about the ancient history of the island and she has also
recently completed a 33 weekly series of an in-depth account of the
Spanish Civil War and what effects this had on the island of Ibiza.
Sinclair Newton was the next to join our fold with his first “Sober
Life” column which was published on Saturday 21st April 2001.
With today’s article it will be a total of 88 articles that Sinclair has
written on the funny side of life.
P Ribas then came onboard with his extremely interesting “Island
Ecology” weekly column where José told us in his 41 weekly articles a
great deal about the lovely secrets of the island and its trees, plants,
mushrooms, birds and the bees.
Louise Wright kept us up-to-date by writing 21 “Local News” lively
columns and her first was published on Saturday 14th July
W Huffman made his debut on Saturday 16th August 2001 and put
together 47 out of the ordinary weekly articles on “An Anthropological
View” which illustrated the essential requirements of life such as the
pig, salt and water here on Ibiza.
Martin Davies started his well-liked fortnightly column “Bibliomaniacs’
Corner” earlier this year on Saturday 16th March and served
up a series of 21 exceptional articles on books that had been written by
writers who had spent part of their lives here on Ibiza.
Harold Liebow was the last to join our cause with his “I Remember Ibiza”
weekly column. Harold’s first article of 23 in his series from when
Harold initially arrived here on the island at the beginning of the
1960s was published on Saturday 8th June 2002.
also feel extremely proud to have also put together through a lot of
hard work 25 superb article on “Artists on Ibiza” of which 22 in this
enormously popular fortnightly series were put together by José P Ribas.
There were also three separate one-offs written in this sequence by
Emily Kaufman, Harold Liebow and Sinclair Newton.
Therefore, nothing has been lost because this new section of our website
will contain a mine of information which has become an encyclopaedia of
words and pictures about this unique island of Ibiza.
