Clyb Focus

St Ayles Rowing Club 2012 has proved to be another successful and exciting year for The St Ayles Rowing Club. During the 2012 rowing season the club successfully competed in racing regattas around the Scottish coastline and across in Ireland, winning many medals and trophies. Social rowing is also an important club activity, and many members took part in wonderful and breathtaking rows down the River Tay, across to the May Island and under the Forth bridges as well as regularly rowing along the shoreline of the East Neuk, on one occasion being escorted by 3 dolphins.


The 2013 season will see the club take part in the first Skiffs World Championship in Ullapool in July, and the building of their third boat if much needed sponsorship can be found. The Club is hoping to get the local community and businesses more involved and are holding an Open Evening in January for anyone interested in either rowing or building and maintenance of the boats or any individuals or businesses that may be able to help with sponsorship. The club specialises in coastal rowing of the St Ayles skiff, a

traditional type 22 ft boat with a crew of four rowers, each with a single oar, and a coxswain. There are now over 40 of these community boats throughout Scotland taking part in exciting racing and friendly social regattas. Suitable for all ages and abilities, skiff rowing is a great way to meet new people and get in shape. For more information contact the Club 01333 313462 or email

Chocolate Pecan Pie Serves 8

Ready in 1½ hours plus chilling

If you have a bowlful of nuts left over from Christmas then why not make this classic American favourite with a British twist – simply replace half the pecan nuts with walnuts, hazelnuts and Brazil nuts. Serve with a dollop of thick Greek yoghurt or whipped cream.


For the pastry: • 225g plain flour • 100g butter, diced • 1 medium egg, beaten with 2 tbsp cold water


For the filling: • 100g dark chocolate, broken into pieces

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6 and place a baking sheet in the oven to heat. To make the filling, melt the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Remove from the heat and stir in the golden syrup, maple syrup and sugar then whisk in thebeaten eggs. Chop half the nuts and stir into the mixture.


Gentlypour the mixture into the pastry case and sprinkle over the rest of the nuts (roughly chopping the hazelnuts and Brazil nuts, if using). Slide the pie tin onto the preheated baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 180C/350F/Gas 4 and bake for a further 25-30 minutes until the filling has set and the pastry is crisp and golden. Serve warm or cold.

• 75g golden syrup • 4 tbsp maple syrup • 75g caster sugar

• 175g pecan nuts (or a mixture of pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts and Brazil nuts)

Roll the pastry out on a lightly floured surface and use to line a 25cm round deep metal pie tin (or a loose-based fluted flan tin). Crimp the pastry edge with your fingers and prick the base all over with a fork. Chill for 30 minutes.


• 50g butter, diced

• 4 medium eggs, beaten

To make thepastry, sift the flour into abowl and add the diced butter. Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the egg and water and mix to a crumbly dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until smooth. Wrap and chill the pastry for 20 minutes.

Cape Town

Draped like a silver necklace around t he green slopes of Sign al Hill, Cape Town, the ‘Mot her Cit y’, is an intrigu ing mix of pastel-coloured walls, red roofs and mighty skyscrapers lapped by the Atlan tic surf. Dutch and British settlers left a fair heritage, from the starshaped castle of Good Hope to the Houses of Parliament, the Anglican Cathedral, once the diocese of Desmund Tutu, and the Company’s Gardens. The modern town has tree-lined avenues and upmarket stores but in the midst of it all are quaint colonial buildings and colourful alleyways, especially in the Malay district, a favourite location for film producers and still home to descendants of Asian slaves. Seapoint is a leisurely place to picnic on the lawns, stroll on the promenade to enjoy the ocean breeze or gaze at fur seals basking on the rocks. Meanwhile beyond the lively Greenmarket at the heart of town, the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront bustles from morning to night. There are fishing boats along the quay, English pubs and al fresco restaurants, Zulu dancers, Jazz musicians and people of all ages having a good time. It’s a great place to sample fresh seafood or a mega ice cream, hunt for the finest African craft or sail around the harbour feeling at home as you gaze at the bright red Victorian clock tower. A

dainty pedestrian bridge swings now and then to let the boats go through and Table Mountain looks down on the scene in quiet splendour. Silhouetted against the blue sky or lost in the mist at over 1000 metres, the mountain has a mind of its own so it’s best to check the forecast and choose a good day to head for the top. Some visitors walk up the steep trails, three hours or so by the easiest route, most queue for the cable car to be whizzed up to the summit in just six minutes.

and penguins, from the verdant Devil’s Peak and Lion’s Head to the Cape peninsula and the Twelve Apostles stretching into the ocean. Myriad footpaths crisscross the vast rocky plateau, sprinkled with 1500 species of plants, among them flowering protea and golden fynbos. There are Cape canaries and orange sunbirds, goat antelopes and elands, baboons and rock hyraxes, resembling oversized guinea pigs, who have wisely set up home near the coffee shop.

Suddenly the fog horn blows, sending everyone rushing back to the cable car. Mist rolls across the mountain tops, the temperature drops, the view disappears and you can’t see the edge of the cliff. It’s a relief The platform revolves so every- to head back down into the one has a turn to look at the sunshine where the ocean rolls view, more vertiginous as you as far as you can see and the climb until you near the top, beat of African drums and hanging just metres from the dancers echoes along the washeer cliff face. terfront.

Wrap Up For Winter Winter is upon us a nd eve n if y ou think that it ca n’t be come any colder, the lowest tempe ratures a re likely yet to c ome. Even hardy British plants will suffer in particularly miserable weather so whether your garden is already covered in snow and ice, or simply a slight frosting, it’s time to make sure that it’s wrapped up warm. Plants in containers are particularly vulnerable to winter damage as their roots are not protected beneath the soil. If the garden soil isn’t frozen solid, plunge any pot that can be plunged. If it’s too heavy to move then wrap it up well in bubble wrap polythene or old curtains. Most shrubs and trees in your garden will be ‘hardy’ in the UK, but if very harsh weather is forecast or there has been a spell of mild weather which may have encouraged the plant to produce some soft, new growth, then drape a double layer of horticultural fleece over the top growth of the plants and anchor it well.

and the buds themselves may be damaged, with late frosts being most harmful because the buds are further developed. A fleece cover will help here too. If you live in a particularly cold area, buy them from a local specialist nursery who know local conditions and try to buy late flowering varieties. If your garden is windy, try investing in some fleecy jackets for your favourite shrubs. These are made from fleece and are like massive bags, complete with a drawstring at the open end. I suggest turning outside taps off at the mains, but if this isn’t feasible, make sure any exposed pipework is properly insulated. Well insulated pipes and garden taps could save you a fortune. Visit Pippa’s website, sign up for her newsletter and receive a free ebook on organic gardening.

A double fleece layer can of course be used on plants in beds and borders too. Weigh down the edges of the fleece well with bricks, or use metal pegs at intervals along its length. Larger individual plants in borders can be given good, individual protection if you use four sturdy canes to create a framework, wrap with netting or chicken wire and fill the central space around the plant with dry bracken, straw or leaves. Many wall shrubs are grown there because they aren’t the hardiest of plants. To reduce risk of damage, make a similar ‘cage’ of mesh around these and again fill it with dry material so that the plant inside remains snug. Make sure you don’t use materials that can’t ‘breathe’ or the plants will deteriorate. Evergreens in containers and in open ground may suffer from drought as well as foliage or stem growth. Deepmulch applied to the soil surface on the root area before the ground becomes frosted will help immensely. Even hardy fruit trees are prone to damage. Although quite tough, the newly opened blossom

Marla Cilley

The Fly Lady HOPES & DREAMS - What is hope anyway? What happens when we don't have hope in our lives? Today I read my morning meditation and the re was a reference to hope. That once the hope is realized; it is not hope anymore. Without hope we find ourselves in a sad way. My birthday is January 11th and 111 is a special number to me. One day I decided to look up those numbers. I have been trying to put this together for weeks now and today it all came clear in one of my favorite Bible verses. Hebrews 11:1, here is what I found. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. We all need something to hope for; this is our dreams. We have the ability to make our dreams come true. My friend Rita Davenport taught me about hope; what good are low hopes! We need to Dream Big and visualize those dreams in ourminds eye! I put pictures of my dreams as my computer screen saver. This way when I walk away from my computer and come back to it; I see those dreams and my hope is energized. I don't allow any negativity to slip in and beat me up. I deserve to have my dreams come true! My hope keeps those dreams alive. Hope and faith are connected. Hope is the dream and faith is the affirmation that those dreams will happen.We see it; we feel it and we experience it in our imaginations and before we know it those dreams become a reality!

the freedom to Dream Big. I never knew that I could be an author or anything other than someone who was beaten down by life. With each new habit I acquired, I found a little bit more of me! I didn't set out to be the FlyLady. I just wanted to be nice to myself. That became the fuel for my routines. In the beginning all I knew was there had to be something more than just surviving and that God had something forme to do. Each new habit along with every item I got rid of uncovered my purpose in the deep hole. It wasn't long until I could feel hope blossom inside of me. That hope is still there today! Where is your hope? I have faith that my dreams will come true. It only takes a little mustard seed of faith to see those dreams become a reality.

We have to watch our perfectionism in this process. We want what we want and we want it now! Anything worth having is worth working for and we have to learn to take babysteps to get to where we want to be. Where do you want to be? Do you know or have you stuffed those dreams into a deep hole? Then we have our perfectionism to cause us to give up when things are not happening fast enough. This is when we throw in the towel because our dreams seem out of reach. As Rita and Ryan Shupe would say, "What good are low hopes? Dream Big! Everyone asks why we have to shine our sinks to get started. It is really quite simple; that shiny sink is a ray of hope for you! Something small that can grow into your dream! Right now we struggle with just trying to find our keys. As the clutter and chaos disappear one babystep at a time we give ourselves
