    Welcome tothe village directoryHi everyone,

    Happy new year and welcome to 2013, yes I know Christmas and New Year now seems a distant memory, but I hope its a great one.

    2012 was certainly an eventfull year, fi rst we had the Queens Diamond Jubilee where we showed the world our very British stiff upper lip by being determined to celebrate and enjoy ourselves whilst being soaked to the skin in persistent rain. Then came the Olympics with that amazing opening ceremony, followed by all those gold medals. Im not a sporty person at all, other than winter sports, Ive never really been that interested in watching it on tv, but this was something very diff erent, I was captivated. From my point of view, the whole event, combined with the Para Olympics was totally inspiring, I was proud to be British.

    To fi nish off the year the Mayan Calendar was thought to predict the end of the world

    on the 21st December. What a relief to wake up on the 22nd and fi nd that everything and everyone was still as it should be! My husband put a positive spin on this, he believes that the end of the Mayan Calendar signifi es change, rather than the doom that others predicted. Weve had enough doom and gloom recently, especially when it comes to the worlds fi nances, so lets hope that 2013 is a turning point and the beginning of a more prosperous, optimistic period of time.

    TheGarden ShedFebruary By Jo Arnell

    Speed spring along by planting some early season interest that way even if the weathers freezing, therell be something cheery out there to encourage us. You could go for an instant fi x and nip to the garden centre for the fi rst of the spring bedding and container plants, but if you do, be careful. There are lots of tempting little plug plants on display, in front of glorious photographs that show how theyll look in the summer if they make it that far. Most of them need to be protected from frost (until May that means), so unless you have a good place to

    keep (and cherish) them, stick to hardy plants like Polyanthus, Primulas and spring bulbs.

    If your borders are looking bleak and bare, then it could be time to fi ll the gaps with more permanent plants. Many of the late winter and early spring plants are scented (try a Daphne, Viburnum bodnantense Dawn, Chimonanthes praecox or the shrubby honeysuckle Lonicera fragrantissima). The problem with some of these is that although they smell divine, they arent all that to look at. I call them Cyrano de Bergerac plants and try to plant something more handsome near them - perhaps a glossy leaved, evergreen beauty like Camellia, or Photinia Red Robin which has bright red young leaves, or plant a good structural focal plant in front of them a neat box ball, or tidy-by-nature, low growing Hebe. That way, when you cant get outside to smell the fragrance, at least there will be something attractive to look out of the window at.

    If youre keen on growing vegetables (and have a greenhouse), youll have got going by now with some early sowings. Tender crops like aubergines and peppers need a long growing season in our dismal climate. I tend to sow alliums, early salads and a batch of broad beans and peas under cover (on a windowsill) to plant out next month, but there are some hardy broad beans Aquadulce Claudia and peas round seeded (as opposed to wrinkled) that will withstand cold weather well. But dont panic this is just the start.

    The Alternative The Alternative to Kennelsto Kennels

    Hello there, my name is Trish Feely and Im proud to announce I am offi cially Barking Mad, Not just by name!

    Barking Mad has been established for 12years and is a great alternative to kennels or housesitting for dogs and now available in this area; we select the ideal host family from our portfolio of trusted dog lovers, all of whom meet our extremely high standards. Accommodation is in a family home environment with one to one dog care, where daily routines are maintained for your

    dog. Barking Mad off ers an exceptional service to dogs and their owners.

    Prior to taking on Barking Mad franchise I had worked in the catering and hospitality industry. Ive been lucky I had the chance to travel to many countries around the world to work and was able to experience other nationalities and cultures.I was fi rst introduced to Barking Mad as a customer when I needed care for my dog Sam. I love the concept and the high standard of care that Sam receives from his host family/s when I am away. I too became a host family and love to see visiting dogs from time to time unfortunately Im unable to host now, I am now lucky enough to be a part of this brilliant concept and to work from home with my Labrador Sam helping -well hes more of a sleeping partner really! I know how vital it is to fi nd good dog care for our four legged family member or it can ruin your time away with worry.

    If you love dogs and would like to enjoy the company of a visiting dog than please contact me. Its fl exible and our hosts fi nd it enjoyable as they have all the doggie fun! All visiting dogs come with food, bedding etc, so there is no cost implication to the host. It is fully supported and if there are any problems I am always on hand to step in.

    If you are interested in using our services or would like to know more about becoming a host, I would love to hear from you (details below)

    Let us arrange for your dog/s to stay with one of our local, carefully selected, very special families because at Barking Mad we believe your dog deserves a holiday too!

    How to choose fabricsBefore buying fabric, ask for a swatch or, even better, borrow or buy a length of fabric that can be draped at the window or placed over a sofa or cushion. It is invaluable to see how the fabric looks in situ, at different times of the day and night. Ask these questions before you start: How wide is the fabric? The

    wider it is, the better the value, and the less sewing will be required. 140cm is average.

    How heavy is it? Heavier fabrics are usually too bulky for small projects, while lighter fabrics usually wear more quickly.

    How durable is it? Fabric is divided into categories depending on whether it will be subjected to light, general or heavy domestic use.

    Is it washable? And, if so, has it been pre-shrunk?

    If it is patterned, what size is the repeat? Large patterns require more fabric so that you can match the repeats.

    Types of fabricFabrics are composed of natural or synthetic fibres, or blends of them, and made

    using a wide variety of weaves.

    FIBRESCotton can range from lightweight muslin to heavy canvas. It is the most commonly used fabric for home furnishings as it dyes and prints well, and is easy to care for.

    Linen has a lovely drape and lustre, is durable, but has a tendency to crease (hence is often mixed with other fibres).

    Nylon, or polyamide, is tough and resists abrasion, but tends to produce static electricity.

    Polyester is a very strong synthetic fibre that mixes well with other fibres to produce versatile fabrics. It can withstand high temperatures and frequent washing.

    Silk comes in intense colours and has an attractive, lustrous surface. Not as hard-wearing as other fibres.

    Viscose is made from wood pulp. It is hard-wearing and durable.

    Wool is breathable, warm and naturally water-resistant. Available in a wide range of thicknesses and textures, it varies from heavy sheeps wool to fine cashmere. It will felt if washed at a high temperature.

    WEAVESBoucl has a looped pile.Corduroy features pile in stripes that may be narrow or wide.Damasks contrast matt and shiny areas of pattern and are usually rather traditional in style.Jacquards feature a complex, raised pattern.Moir is a water-mark pattern, often found on silks.Plain weaves have a smooth surface.Satin is heavy with a lustrous surface, usually made from silk or polyester.Twill weave produces diagonal or zig zag lines on the surface. Denim is a heavy-cotton twill, for example.Velvet may be made from a variety of fibres and features a luxurious, soft pile.

    What to use whereUPHOLSTERY Hard-wearing, tightly woven

    fabrics are best for most upholstery. Medium-to heavy-weight cottons and cotton mixes, linen mixes and wools are all good, conventional choices, while corduroy, denim and low-pile velvet are

    Choosing fabrics for the homePatterned, textured or plain, subtle or spectacular, fabrics can transform a room. Our guide will help you sort the silks from the synthetics and the cottons from the corduroys, while giving you the lowdown on what to use where.

    Satay Vegetable SkewersServes 4 Ready in 30 minutes

    If you are short on time but

    still want a avoursome

    supper then try these delicious

    vegetable kebabs with a lovely

    spicy peanut sauce and spring

    onion noodles. For non-veggie

    kebabs replace the aubergine

    with cubes of lean pork or

    chicken llet and cook for

    15-20 minutes until the meat

    is cooked through and lightly

    charred.

    Ingredients: 100g crunchy peanut butter 25g creamed coconut,

    chopped 1/2 tsp chilli powder 1 garlic clove peeled and

    crushed 4 tbsp soy sauce 3 small peppers (red, green and

    yellow), deseeded and cut into 2.5cm pieces

    4 thick slices of aubergine 1 large red onion, peeled and

    cut into slim wedges 3 tbsp sesame oil 4 nests fi ne egg noodles 4 spring onions, trimmed and

    fi nely sliced

    Tip:If you dont have a griddle pan cook the kebabs under a pre-heated grill or use a heavy-based shallow frying and add a little oil.

    Place the peanut butter, coconut, chilli powder and garlic in a small pan with 180ml water. Heat gently, stirring all the time, for 2-3 minutes until the coconut has dissolved and the sauce has thickened. Remove from the heat, stir in half the soy sauce. Thin down with a little more water to get a pouring consistency, if necessary.

    Par-boil the peppers in a pan of boiling water for 2 minutes, drain well and pat dry with kitchen paper. Cut the aubergine slices into quarters. Thread the peppers and aubergine onto 8 pre-soaked wooden skewers with the onion wedges.

    Preheat a cast-iron griddle pan until almost smoking. Whisk 2 tbsp of the oil and remaining soy sauce together and brush all over the vegetable kebabs. Cook the kebabs on the hot griddle pan for 6-8 minutes, turning frequently until tender and lightly charred.

    Meanwhile, cook the noodles in a large pan of boiling water for 3-4 minutes until just tender. Drain well and toss together with the rest of the sesame oil and the spring onions. Serve the kebabs on the noodles and drizzle over the satay sauce.

    Are You Having Problems in Your Relationship?

    Relationships can be one of the most fulfi lling and pleasurable areas in life. Our tendency to develop intimate and intense relationships can bring great joy and happiness. However, occasionally our relationships can become full of tension, resentment and confl ict causing pain and upset to one or both parties. Diffi culties in relationships are one of the most common causes of unhappiness, and often bring people into therapy.

    In general, poor communication is a major factor in relationship issues. Many of our clients claim they struggle with a feeling of not being listened to, or that that their partner doesnt take time to understand what they are saying. Its also very common for the same topics to provoke arguments and blame without a solution being found.

    Whether you come with your partner or alone, whether youre gay or heterosexual, married or single. Relationship Counselling off ers individuals or couples a safe, non-judgemental and confi dential setting in which to explore the diffi culties and help you fi nd more productive ways of relating to each other.

    The purpose of counselling is to help you stay together as a couple unless you expressly wish to separate, in which case, Relationship Counselling can help you to do so more amicably.

    In the best interests of the childrenIn another of our regular series on legal matters, this month Laura Hails, Chartered Legal Executive at Pengelly & Rylands Solicitors, talks about children issues

    Each year thousands of children experience the separation of their parents. We realise that many of our clients will be unsure as to how best to manage their separation whilst considering the best interests of their children. Divorce and separation generates a large level of stress in a persons life and it is likely that children will have feelings about divorce and separation which will be very diff erent from your own.

    Many parents are able to agree between them how they share contact of the children and parents are able to agree any contact pattern that suits the needs of the children.

    When considering children matters, we refer to the Children Act 1989. The fi rst priority is the welfare of the children and there is also a checklist of factors that have to be considered, which include, but are not limited to, the childs age, sex, background, wishes and feelings and physical, emotional and educational needs.

    Unfortunately some parents will have diffi culties in reaching an amicable agreement. If you cannot agree with whom they should live or how much contact they have, you may wish to seek advice.

    We are committed to a helpful, non-confrontational approach, to take the confl ict out of family disputes and to ensure the children maintain a healthy, loving relationship with both parents. As a Member of Resolution, we are mindful of the fact that during the separation process,

    Laura Hails, Chartered Legal Executive at Pengelly & Rylands

    there will be a wide range of emotions and we therefore deal with matters in a conciliatory approach to achieve a solution based on the needs of the whole family, particularly what is in the best interests of the children.

    If you have any queries about children issues or any other family matter, please telephone me on 01580 762248 and I will advise you of the best route available to you in your particular circumstances.

    Tablets are wonderful things, but they can be pricey: while 400 isnt much compared to the price of a high-end laptop, its still 400. But you dont need to spend that much to fi nd a perfectly good tablet: in fact, there are good ones for as little as 99.

    The 99 tablet is Amazons Kindle Fire, which dropped from 129 to 99 in November (if its gone back up again, dont worry - you can be sure the price will fall again very soon). While it isnt exactly state of the art its still a perfectly decent tablet for watching videos, playing Angry Birds, using Facebook and so on.

    If you fancy something a little more powerful but not much more expensive, Amazons Kindle Fire HD is very good too. It boasts a much better screen, which is superb for video, and comes with more storage, faster Wi-Fi wireless networking and a faster processor. Prices start at just 159 for the 16GB model.

    Before you spend 159, though, check out Googles off ering, the Nexus 7. Like the Kindle Fire its just 159 for the 16GB model, and as its Googles own device its a

    proper Android tablet without the customisation that some manufacturers add to the operating system. Once again its a seven-inch device with a powerful processor, integrated Wi-Fi wireless networking and good battery life.

    There are two other 159 tablets to consider: the Kobo Arc and the Nook HD. The former comes from Kobo, Amazons main rival in the e-reading sector, and its aimed primarily at e-book readers who fancy the odd video, song or bit of web browsing, while the latter is by US bookselling giant Barnes & Noble and hopes to carve a niche off ering electronic magazines as well as apps. Technically speaking theyre very good - the Nook HD in particular has a wonderful screen, is very light and easy to use - but tablets rise and fall on the strength of their content libraries and Amazon has the edge in that department. If you want a tablet that has lots of stuff to choose from and which is very easy to use, the Kindle Fire HD will look very attractive; if youre more techy and want something you can fi ddle with too, Googles Nexus is more likely to appeal.

    You cant mention tablets without mentioning Apple, and while Apple also has a cheap tablet were talking cheap in Apple terms: the iPad mini starts at 269, which is signifi cantly more than other seven-ish-inch tablets - although its a good bit less than a full-sized iPad. Apple claims its every inch an iPad, and thats a fair claim: its essentially an iPad 2 crammed into a smaller case, so it runs existing iPad apps quite happily. It has more available tablet apps than any other small tablet, it has a slightly bigger screen - its 7.9 inches rather than the rivals 7 inches, which doesnt sound much but makes a big diff erence when youre using it - and to our eyes its much better-looking and better-engineered than any rival.

    Is the iPad mini worth the extra cash? If you want a premium tablet, youre using other Apple products or youve already amassed a stack of iOS apps then yes. If not, you may well fi nd that a smaller rival will be just as much fun for considerably less cash.

    After several years spent researching her family history, Elaine - who lives in Kent - had discovered that her ancestors were land-owning farmers from the Richmond district of Yorkshire. She was eager to see where they had lived and died so she chose a pretty cottage in the hamlet of Easby as an ideal base from which to explore the area. Elaine had focused her research on a branch of the Dixon family, tracing the line back to the year 1695, and she was now intent on fi lling any gaps in her knowledge. She had been unable to fi nd out where her great, great, great grandparents were buried but thanks to an extraordinary co-incidence she discovered the answer lay only a short stroll away. A book left out on display in the village church gave the exact location of their graves in the churchyard.Elaine will never know what or who - led to this uncanny revelation but she believes that luck and instinct can play a pivotal role in family research. Her interest in the subject began as a child, when her grandmother told her stories about older relatives. Once grandma died, I found I was the only person in the family

    with that knowledge. I wanted to know more, so I sent off for my grandmas birth certifi cate. Although Im not very good with the internet I looked up www.ancestry.co.uk and signed up for two weeks free trial.Elaine was determined to follow the female line of her family although she knew it would be diffi cult because the surnames would not be consistent. Unable to progress beyond her great, great grandmother Mary, she worked on a hunch inspired by the census.One of her children had the Christian name Dixon and I thought that was unusual, says Elaine. Id read in a magazine that mothers often christened children with their maiden names so the name would stay in the family.When she entered Mary Dixon into an online search, she was rewarded with information that enabled her to trace her roots back to the 17th century. Elaines top tips for starting your own research are to talk to older members of your family and write down every detail, then start to work backwards by requesting copies of birth, marriage and death certifi cates from the

    appropriate local records offi ces. Valuable information can be obtained from ancestry search magazines and websites such as www.ancestry.co.uk and www.fi ndagrave.com. She has also found the staff at records offi ces particularly helpful.The message boards of online networks such as www.curiousfox.com can be useful but Elaine warns that where the search concerns a common surname, names should be double checked against the census or other offi cial records in order to ensure that the person in question belongs to the right family. Tracking down family records can be challenging, but for Elaine it has opened up a wealth of new opportunities.If I hadnt done this I would never have used a computer. Ive also found that my interest in ancestry has given me wider interest in history. I can honestly say it has opened up a whole new life for me.

    Life BeginsTaking a trip to your familys past by Claudia Leaf

    When Elaine Thomas booked a weeks holiday in a remote cottage in Yorkshire, she had no idea that she was about to solve a mystery.

    A customer asked In what aisle could I fi nd the Irish sausage?

    The clerk asksAre you Irish?

    The guy, clearly offended says Yes I am, but let me ask you something.

    If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?

    Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German?

    Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish?

    Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?

    Or if I asked for Polish sausage, would you ask if I was Polish?

    The clerk saysNo,I probably wouldnt.
