Jokes Little Tim was in the garden filling in a hole when his neighbour peered over the fence. Interested in what the cheeky-faced youngster was up to, he politely asked, "What'cha doing, Tim?" "My goldfish died," replied the boy tearfully, without looking up. "I've just buried him." The neighbour was concerned. "That's an awfully big hole for a goldfish, isn't it?" Tim patted down the last heap of earth, then replied, "That's because he's inside your dumb cat."

"Uh huh," "Sure, honey," or "Yes, dear." Really means....Absolutely nothing. It's a conditioned response. "It would take too long to explain." Really means..."I have no idea how it works. "We're going to be late." Really means...."Now I have a legitimate excuse to drive like a maniac." "Take a break, honey, you're working too hard." Really means...."I can't hear the game over the vacuum cleaner."

What Men Really Mean "That's interesting, dear." Really means...."Are "It's a guy thing." Really means...."There is no you still talking?" rational thought pattern connected with it, and you have no chance at all of making it logical." "It's a really good movie." Really means...."It's got guns, knives, fast cars, and beautiful women." "Can I help with dinner?" Really means...."Why isn't it already on the table?" "That's women's work." Really means...."It's difficult, dirty, and thankless."

Learning from Art at The Source Thurles LEARNING FROM ART is an exhibition illustrating the work of young people between the ages of 5 to 18 from 32 counties in Ireland. The concept behind LEARNING FROM ART is the process that takes place when art becomes the catalyst for both learning and creativity. The aim of the exhibition is to encourage young people to be curious and creative by using their national collection as a source of inspiration – to learn something about art while partaking in their own creative process.

These art works display the widest forms of expression from the naïve to the sophisticated, the graphic to the painterly and the humorous to the reflective. An extensive variety of media is explored including ink, pastels, watercolour, poster paint, gouache, acrylic and collage. Also created were hundreds of lively poems together with several stimulating pieces of prose. The result of this outpouring of energy and creativity is an exhibition of works by Irish young people that is valued and treasured in its own right.

LEARNING FROM ART comprises the work of primary and post primary students from 32 counties. The children interpreted a picture from the National Gallery in the

neighbours continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off! MORAL : Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up. Remember the five simple rules to be happy: 1. Free your heart from hatred - Forgive. 2. Free your mind from worries - Most never happens. 3. Live simply and appreciate what you have. 4. Give more. 5. Expect less from people but more from yourself.

The Donkey in the Well One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbours to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer's

SPEAK UP CAFÉ initiative Domestic abuse and sexual violence is an alarming problem in our country. Services are there to help but are they good enough?

Happy Christmas to all our Customers

The SPEAK UP CAFÉ initiative is being organised to involve individuals who have been affected by domestic abuse and/or sexual violence to come and tell organisations as to how services can be improved. The SPEAK UP CAFÉ events are part of a wide range of initiatives undertaken by the Mid West Regional Advisory Committee on Violence Against Women and local agencies during the 16 Days of Action Campaign. The 16 Days of Action Campaign is an international campaign to raise awareness of the reality of domestic abuse and violence and to push for positive change to increase women's safety. The SPEAK UP CAFÉ is open to individuals who have experienced domestic abuse and/or sexual violence either currently or in the past. It is open to family members and close friends who may be living with or supporting survivors. It is also aimed at those

who may not have accessed a service but could have potentially benefited from doing so. The SPEAK UP CAFÉ model is built on the assumption that people already have within them the wisdom and expertise to advise organisations as to what’s important when dealing with a crisis or on-going problems related to domestic abuse and /or sexual violence. The organisers believe that by listening to what the public and service users say is essential if organisations genuinely wish to improve services. The changes will make services more relevant, of a higher quality and which staff are proud to provide. If you who would like to voice your opinion at one of these events, just drop in to a SPEAK UP CAFÉ in either Limerick, Ennis or Nenagh and you can meet informally with a representative of an organisation and chat with others with similar experiences. Refreshments will be available to help you to Speak Uppa with a Cuppa! If you cannot attend on the day, you can also phone in with your comments on the Freefone Number 1800 311 511 or complete the on-line survey. For further details see / Or Face book Speak Up Café The events will take place on 26 Nov 2013, 11am - 2pm, at the Greenhills Hotel, Limerick; 28 Nov 2013 11am - 2pm Temple Gate Hotel, The Square, Ennis; 3 Dec 2013 11am - 2pm Abbey Court Hotel, Nenagh

Tyre Maintenance Correct Inflation Pressure Inflation pressure is important, as the pressurised air inside your tyre has to support the weight of your vehicle and its load. Tyre pressures may vary depending on the vehicle model and the load being carried. We recommend that you check your tyre pressures regularly against the manufacturer’s specifications for your vehicle (refer to your owners handbook) at your local service station. Wheel Alignment & Balancing You may hear the terms ‘wheel alignment’ and ‘wheel balancing’ used interchangeably, but they are separate issues, both important in the upkeep of your tyres and vehicle. Wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. Aligning your wheels can help maximise tyre life and ensure that your vehicle drives straight and true when on level surfaces. The symptoms of a misaligned wheel include: uneven or rapid tyre wear pulling or drifting away from a straight line drifting on a straight, level road spokes of the steering wheel tending toward one side while driving on a straight, level road Wheel balancing allows the tyres and wheels to spin without causing any vibrations. Your wheels’ balance is gauged by checking for any heavy spots on the wheel-tyre combination and compensating for such flaws by placing a measured balancing weight on the opposite side of the wheel from where the heavy spot is located. The symptoms of a wheel that is out of balance include:

you seek advice from your local authorised tyre repair centre.

There are several signs of deteriorating tyres you should keep an eye out for:

Tyre condition vibration in the steering wheel, seat or floor-pan, usually at motorway speeds ‘scalloped’ or ‘cupped’ wear pattern on the tires If your tyres demonstrate any of the symptoms outlined above, we advise that

Tyres displaying signs of deterioration should be removed and not used on the road.

cracking/crazing of the side wall of the tyre, caused by its flexing distortion of the tyre tread deformation of the main body of the tyre damage persistent loss of inflation pressure deep cuts

bulges separated or perished rubber vibrations through the tyres when you drive Tyres showing any of these signs of wear should be investigated by a qualified tyre specialist, such as a tyre dealer, as soon as possible to assess the tyres’ suitability for continued service. Courtesy

Tipperary’s newest sporting facility named The new climbing and bouldering gym in Upperchurch was recently named after a school competition held throughout October. Primary and secondary schools across the county Tipperary were invited to come up with an exciting name for the new facility and the centre was inundated with hundreds of entries. The team behind the wall were amazed at the quality of names submitted and it took considerable time to choose the best name. The new facility has now been named ‘Upper Limits’ – as it reflects Upperchurch (being a bit on the Upper side!) and the climbing as well as showcasing the experience that can be had by all at the climbing wall. The team in Upperchurch are delighted with the new name and want to say a big thank you to the hundreds of children who submitted brilliant names.

nd Coughlan 2 class from Mochaomhog Naofa, Two Mile Borris th and Conor Carven 5 class from Templederry National School) and the team at Upper Limits were delighted to award the prize to all 3 winners (each winning a 2 hour climbing session for themselves and 5 friends). The winning entry from a secondary school pupil was Jessica Ryan from Naomh Íde, Loreto Secondary school in Clonmel who was also awarded a 2 hour indoor climbing session for themselves and 5 friends.

Travel Orlando Florida

By Catherine MaGuire, Travel Counsellors Your local travel agent 0504-33333

A world-renowned destination, Orlando is the place to make all of your vacation dreams come true. Of course, it is beloved for its theme parks: Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Florida, SeaWorld Orlando and many others. But it also beckons with world-class resorts, shopping opportunities for every budget, all-season golf courses, and some of the most enticing dining opportunities on the planet. Less known but equally inviting are the downtown sections of Orlando itself and many nearby towns in Central Florida – places that celebrate public art and take pride in offering a myriad of cultural opportunities. Gravity: the world's theme park capital is built to defy it. Orlando boasts some of the finest rides on the planet. They generate the biggest thrills when visitors are swirled, twisted and catapulted in stomach-churning manoeuvres that flout the pull of the earth. Central Florida can provide wall-to-wall, ride-to-ride, high-energy excitement. Yet Orlando also has historic, gentle and sophisticated dimensions that far too many visitors overlook. Come to Orlando – and bring the family – and wish upon a star Check out the other side of the city, and you discover that gravity is a convenient force that keeps your feet on the ground and helps you discover a fascinating area.

Once you get off the freeway and into the heart of Orlando, you discover that it is a place that manages to be both thriving and relaxed. Walk south along Orange Avenue, the city's main artery, to appreciate some fine 19th-century and Art Deco architecture. Orlando is unusual in having its very own city-centre lake. Lake Eola is a graceful expanse of water that serves to inject some serenity - just what you need after a day at Universal or the Magic Kingdom. Water is key to the Orlando that most visitors miss. The region's very first tourist attraction was a simple boat trip which survives to this day. At the eastern end of Morse Boulevard in the beautiful suburb of Winter Park, you'll find the jetty for a fascinating trip of Orlando's lake district. You can spend an intriguing hour cruising along creeks and across lakes, seeing some beautiful (and expensive) homes. If these clapperboard mansions look strangely familiar, and remind you of communities much further north, that's because many New Englanders settled here towards the end of the 19th century, drawn in by cheap land and the expanding railroad. Winter Park still has its own station, with daily trains to and from New York.

The team at Upper Limits are looking forward to welcoming Eimear, Louis, Conor, Jessica and their friends in the coming months to Upper Limits in Upperchurch.

Counselling Anxiety

(continued from previous issue)

By Jim O’Shea Series 4, no. 15. Anxiety. Visualisation of your inner wisdom (continued). Transcendental Meditation. Now look back toward the entrance to your sanctuary, and imagine that you begin to see or sense or feel the presence of a very wise being who is about to enter. This wise being could be a man or a woman, a child or an animal. Or it might be a colour or a spiritual presence.. Begin to feel or picture or sense this wise being as it steps through the entrance to your sanctuary and begin to move toward you..See or feel how old or how young, how big or how small.. How this wise being moves, how he or she is dressed if it’s a person... most importantly, feel the energy of this wise being as it moves toward you... As it comes closer, greet the wise being in any way that feels appropriate to your own feelings. Allow the wise being to greet you and make contact. You can make contact through words or energetically, mentally, through touch, or in any way that feels right for you. Know that this wise being is here to serve you, to help you in whatever way you need... The wise being may have a message for you, so ask now if it has something to tell you, in words or in any other way, something to remind you of, or to let you know. And then be open to hearing or sensing or feeling what the message is...if there is something you especially need or want, ask for it, whether it be some words of wisdom or some loving support – whatever it may be, go ahead and ask ... let yourself receive the response that this wise being gives to you... Now continue to be together in whatever way feels good to you... you may wish to be together without words, or you may want to talk ...allow yourself to receive and fully enjoy this experience. And when you feel ready, complete your contact in whatever way you desire for right now... If you want to keep the wise being with you in the sanctuary, you can do that. If it feels right for the wise being to leave the sanctuary, if you feel complete with your experience for now, then say good-bye and imagine this being moving back up the path and out of the sanctuary.. But, know that any time you want to, you can come to this sanctuary, you can ask for your wise being to come and be with you here, and you can ask whatever questions you have or ask for

whatever support, guidance, love, or contact you need... Now once again, look around your sanctuary..Remember that this is a place that you can visit any time you want by closing your eyes, taking a few deep breaths, and desiring to be there... Now say goodbye to your sanctuary for now and begin to move back up the path. Feel yourself more and more alive, energised, and balanced... Become aware of your body and how it is feeling now, and become aware of the room around you...when you feel ready, very gradually open your eyes and come back into the room... You might also consider Transcendental Meditation, which is the one most commonly practised, and you will have to pay a ‘teacher’ to learn it. You will find teachers’ contacts on the website. TM is a type of mantra meditation, and was introduced in India in the 1950s by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. It is based on the Indian philosophy and the teachings of Krishna (Supreme Being of Hinduism), Buddha and other Indian deities. Its main contribution is relaxation. It is a form of mantra meditation. A mantra is a word or sound repeated to aid concentration in the meditation. Generally, the mantra has no meaning, but some teachers select a mantra for each individual ‘student’. One common sound used is ‘Om’, ‘Aum’ or ‘Hum’. Learning TM is usually in seven stages – two introductory lectures, an interview, and four two-hour long instruction sessions. This short course can be quite expensive.
