Nando And The Judge Hello everyone! Soooo much has happened since we last met, I don't know where to begin! I know! I will do what I always do and just get stuck in. he he! My education continues and when I was staying with the old wrinkly woman she spotted a local dog show and decided that not only should I go but I should enter a couple of classes as well! Not only that but my behaviour was to be witnessed by her daughter and niece! No pressure then! Have you ever been to a dog show? Don't! They're mad!! There's dogs EVERYWHERE! Not only that, there's dog mad people everywhere too. Well I hate to blow my own trumpet (not really ;-) ) but I was....what's the word....Brilliant! I kept my head down and my grrrr contained even when surrounded (and I mean surrounded) by 15 or so dogs! and we're not talking little dogs either....Rottweiler rescue were there and lets just say if you think I have issues think again. We looked around the stands (more of that later) and entered two classes...'Most handsome male dog' (naturally!) and 'best trick' (I keep telling you I'm clever!) I don't understand why but out of a class of 25 in the first I didn't win! I think the judge was having an off day, don't you?! For the second class I had to practice my 'sit, up and spin' routine (Pudsey look out) in

which I sit then stand on my back legs and do a 360 spin...I know clever eh! Well I did my very best and......we didn't get placed! The old woman was very cross as apparently it said 'trick' and the winners did 'obedience' stuff which she didn't think was on. Chillax! I know I'm the best, I don't need a rosette to tell me so! (although I was secretly a bit miffed at the time) Having been such a good boy, the daughter decided I should do another class...'fancy dress' - what was she thinking! She duly went off to said stands and came back with...how can I describe it? a leopard print dog nappy with crossed bone emblem. (I kid you not) apparently I was going to represent The Flintstone's. Well I did let them try it on but sadly (not) it was too small. phew! that's a picture I wouldn't want printed! It's a shame I couldn't go home to my people with a rosette, I always have adventures when I go and stay with the old wrinkly one - such fun! as they say. What's that? The old ones are moving to a house with a garden? I hope that means I can visit more often! What's that, my people are saying... If I don't behave myself I could end up living there permanently? Oh dear! Now I face a moral dilemma don't I? What's a dog to do? he he Till next time, a 'high ten' (another clever trick) from an irrepressible Nando xx

Forgive And Forget? By Andy Workman

I am touched that a reader has contacted me and asked me to cover the subject of forgiveness, a subject very close to my heart. Mark Twain once said “Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it”. I humbly suggest he was correct. If someone hurts us, lets us down or turns against us, the only route to our own recovery is forgiveness. It isn’t of course our only option. We can, if we choose, spend our precious time mithering over their words and actions, reliving the hurt caused and in time increasing the impact they had on us. We can talk behind their backs, trying to gain the support of mutual friends or relatives in our “war” against them. We can even try to “get them back” by our words and actions, intending them equal hurt or worse. The question that has to be asked is, what do we gain by doing any of these things? The answer, if we’re honest, is nothing or even worse, more bad feelings for us. It’s easy to feel misjudged or let down but that’s life. We misjudge others at times and then fully expect to never have others misjudge us. We sometimes let others down in their expectations of us, but then get really cross when we’re disappointed. We just have to accept that life is not always how we planned it, but we can see a positive in that if we look in the right places. How often has something gone wrong for you, only to set off a chain of events that results in a much better conclusion that you expected from that which was planned? When a no-show by a friend has led to you meeting someone else unexpectedly and that has led to a positive result. It happens all the time. The difficulty with nursing our wrath against

someone is that it is self-destructive. I could sit and hate someone for hours but what affect is that having on them? None! In the meantime, my mood is falling through the floor, the stress chemicals and hormones in my body are damaging my body not theirs and I end up depressed, not them. Malachy McCourt is quoted saying “Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die”. How true that is! Do you need to tell them they are forgiven? Not necessarily. Sometimes it’s easier to draw a line under the event and to move on completely, especially if there is potential for a repeat of the issue in question. If we were bitten by a fierce dog and we forgave it, would it be wise to step into its pen again? Just forgive and forget. If that means that distance is required to prevent them hurting you or you hurting them again in the future that may the best path to take. That doesn’t stop you sending love and forgiveness out to them in your thoughts. Who knows, it may create unseen bridges that will join your paths again when the time is right. Bad mouthing them behind their back reflects badly on your own character and destroys those bridges as quickly as they are built. Is it weak to forgive? Roman Emperors had the power of life and death over Gladiators with just the upward or downward turn of their thumb. Did they exert more power by deciding on a death or by having yet another man owe him the remainder of his life by showing mercy? Think about it! Forgive and forget. If you can’t do both – choose one! Look after you.

COMMUNITY NEWS & WHAT’S ON Kingswood History Society On Tuesday 1stOctober, we had fascinating presentation titled 'Village Witchcraft'. Our speaker; Professor Hutton, told us about the 'village' or localized practices of 'Charmers', 'Cunning' folk and the repertoire of their expertise over the two centuries to 1940. He enlightened us to the various known witchcraft practitioners of that period that could be consulted and employed to cast spells, identify wrong doers and resolve perceived wrongs. We may feel that witchcraft has no place in our modern time but the Wicca still has its followers and indeed, there is amuseum of Witchcraftin Boscastle, that has existed for fifty years and is amongst Cornwall's most popular museums! The KingswoodHistory Society meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm, in Room 4 at the Park Centre, High Street, Kingswood, (opposite the Civic Centre). On 5th November our topic will be ‘Yate in World War 2’ and on 3rd December we will enjoy our final meeting of the year with an American supper and Christmas quiz, – both surely unmissable! Anyone interested in joining us should visit our website www.kingswoodhistorysociety.org, contact Dennis Noble on dn007g9122@blueyonder.co.ukor just come along to our meetings.

Leading homecare specialist Helping Hands brought their free of charge award winning training to families in South Gloucestershire on Saturday 28th September to overwhelming success. Hosted by Jayne Vale, the UK’s Dementia Personality of the year and their resident dementia expert, families learnt how a loved one is likely to experience living with the various forms of Dementia, and how they can help. It was also a great opportunity for families to chat to others who are in similar circumstances and to the Dementia experts. Mrs B from Wotton-under-Edge commented: “I would like to thank all involved with the Dementia Family Day, it was a really helpful session from all perspectives; for information about the condition and how to deal with our relatives. Jane was a marvellous speaker, the venue was comfortable and convenient, refreshments very welcome, and the information pack to take away was really helpful. Thank you!”
