Easter Elsewhere!

Fed up with chocolate and bunnies? Check out these cool Easter traditions from our European neighbours. In Finland children blacken their faces and go begging in the streets, rather like our Halloween. On Easter Monday the villagers of Haux, in France, cook up a giant omelette using over 4500 eggs. The omelette feeds over 1000 people and is served in the village square for lunch. In some parts of Germany people save their Christmas trees and burn them in a ceremonial bonfire, which symbolises the victory of spring over the dark days of winter.

Latvian children hold egg fights, using decorated eggs. The fights are similar to our conker fights and the egg which cracks first loses. Possibly the strangest tradition comes from Hungary, The Czech Republic and Slovakia. Here women are spanked on Easter Monday. It is said that spanking ensures a woman’s beauty will be preserved during the following year! Me? I’m sticking to the chocolate!

Garden View The Perfect Plant As a plantsman I often get asked to recommend the perfect plant.  Now I know the conversation is going to be interesting when I am approached with the phrase ‘do you know anything about plants?’ This phrase is usually accompanied with a quizzical scowl, and completed with raised eyebrows. “Now, we want it to flower for 12 months of the year, produce scent in winter (but not too heavy), be available in purple, blue and White, with a splash of pink around mother’s day.  It must be evergreen, fast growing, tall enough to block out the view of the neighbour’s garage, but not large enough to block out light.  It should be able to grow in our heavy clay soil, not require feeding and will never need pruning.  It should absolutely not shed leaves onto my husband’s impeccably manicured lawn, and must be able to withstand rabbits, provide a home for birds and ladybirds, but not be susceptible to diseases or pests.  The flowers should be self-deadheading, and should provide sweet nectar for bees, but not wasps.  Oh, and it must be 2 metres tall when planted, and not be expensive.  Can you recommend a few?’

This could be an April fool, but it’s not: it’s a common request.  They want me to give them a long Latin name (the plant, not the enquirer!) but it doesn’t exist, and I’m rather glad. Plants are like friends, they all have different personalities, different requirements and different strengths and weaknesses, but it’s that very variety which makes gardening (and friendship) so rewarding. April is a very busy month for most people in the garden, and one of my favourites.  The clocks have changed, the days are longer and warmer and plant growth is rapid.  There are still some major tasks which can be completed at this time of year, such as cutting back evergreens.  Cut back hard, feed and the plant will regenerate over the next few years. If you didn’t feed your plants last month, now is the time to do it. If you are an organic gardener, a handful of chicken manure pellets or blood, fish and bone, are great tonics for your plants.  It’s also the time when potatoes can be planted.   Some years ago, a very helpful guy at our local garden centre demystified the whole potato planting schedule for me and in essence all potatoes are planted right nowtraditionally Easter Sunday I think.  The first earlies, second earlies and main crop tubers are planted together, it’s just that they are harvested at different times.  The instructions on the packs are usually pretty clear. Happy Gardening

Reiki Healing

What is Reiki all about

Today it continues to be taught by Reiki Masters, who can trace their lineage back to Dr Usui and who follow his five spiritual principals: to let go of anger, not to worry, be grateful, do work honestly, and be kind to every living creature. Reiki practitioners channel the energy drawn through them by the need, or imbalance of recipients, who then use it to heal themselves. It can enhance other healing methods and enable people to recover from surgery, chemotherapy, stress and emotional upsets. It is also used successfully with animals.

Reiki is amazing! It can be used for first aid, healing cuts, bumps and burns, as well as deeper longer lasting emotional and physical problems. Imagine being able to put your hand on a cut finger to help it heal more quickly. The exception is broken bones, which must be set first, though once applied, the plaster cast is no barrier to the healing energy. Parents naturally comfort their children by placing their hands on the hurt or giving them a hug. Training in Reiki enhances this natural process, allowing more energy to be passed on. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning universal (Rei) life energy (Ki). It is an ancient system of energy transmission through the hands, rediscovered in the 19th century by Dr Mikao Usui, an expert in comparative religions and head of a Christian College in Japan. He decided to leave his teaching to research healing. His studies took him as far as America, India and Tibet, until he finally discovered a system of healing in ancient Sanskrit texts, which he used to develop the Reiki we know today. Before his death, he passed on the Reiki knowledge that eventually spread to America, Australia and Europe.

A treatment involves lying fully clothed on a couch while the practitioner lightly places their hands in a sequence of positions on the abdomen, head and back for about 5 minutes, or when the energy ceases to flow. During a treatment people usually feel a sensation of warmth and deep relaxation. It is usually followed by a good night’s sleep, often experiencing more benefits on awakening. For more information there are a number of Reiki organisations, such as the Rei-Ki Academy, based in Northampton. As its popularity spreads, more people are receiving Reiki treatments and more are being trained, so benefitting from regular self treatments, as well as helping family and friends, and often becoming practitioners themselves. There is no belief system attached to it, so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment. It is not difficult to learn and it simply uses the hands to heal. By Sue Blain (Naturopath)

April is

Awareness Month

April is National Autism Month. When hearing about autism, many people think of the film Rain Man, or of a child genius who can’t function at all socially. The reality for most people affected by autism is somewhat different. Autism is a developmental disorder which affects the way a person communicates and relates to the world. The causes are not known, and it is a lifelong condition. It is a spectrum, which means while all people with autism will share certain traits, the effect the condition has on them will be different. Some will be able to live independently, while others may need care for the rest of their lives. People with autism have difficulties with social interaction, communication and imagination. Common social mores like sarcasm and jokes are difficult to understand, and figurative speech tends to be taken literally, so the expression ‘cool’ may mean slightly cold to someone with autism, rather than slang for something good. They see the world differently and often feel they don’t fit in, but can’t figure out why. People with autism often have learning disabilities that mask the symptoms of autism. Asperger Syndrome is a form of autism that is not usually accompanied by severe learning disabilities, and people with it are often of higher than average intelligence, but sufferers may still struggle with social interactions and may have milder learning difficulties such as dyspraxia and dyslexia. Around 1 in 100

people in the UK are on the autistic spectrum. As awareness of autism and Asperger syndrome grows, diagnosis for children is becoming more common, but for adults it can still be a struggle. The first step in getting a diagnosis would be to talk to a GP. It might help to ring the Autism Helpline to help prepare what to say. The GP will then make a referral to a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist for an assessment and formal diagnosis. They will ask questions about childhood history, day to day interactions and so on. There may be more than one appointment before a report is written and official diagnosis is made, but once it is done, further support and services can then be accessed. Organisations like The National Autism Society can be a great help. They can provide information about services to support autistic people, such as housing, befriending, employment and education. They also provide support for friends and family of autistic people too. The vast majority of people with autism can lead happy, independent lives, especially if the people around them have knowledge and understanding of the condition.

Taxi!

If you want to flag down a ride, use a licensed Hackney Carriage which can pick up fares without a prior booking. Black cabs (taxis) can actually come in all colours, display an orange light and have white registration plates. PHVs carry yellow plates and are generally saloons. DON’T use a cab if the driver is not wearing a badge showing his license number; appears to be under the influence of alcohol; does not seem to know the local area; if the vehicle seems to be too old; or is in a state of disrepair.

After a night out it might be tempting to jump into the first mini cab you see, but you could be putting yourself in danger if you do. A mini cab, or private hire vehicle, is only licensed to pick up fares that have been pre-booked through a licensed operator. No booking means no record of your journey or your driver, and no insurance should an accident occur.

DO make a note of the number plate and driver’s licence number and text them to someone; take a picture of the vehicle; always sit in the back; carry your mobile phone in your hand for easy access Travelling by taxi or mini cab is generally safe, but follow the above guidelines and help to keep it that way!
