EDITORS PAGE

Welcome to the first Freestyle Magazine for 2017, the year seems to have got off to a very damp and cold start; I for one have more or less hibernated since the year began. It is hard to believe that spring is just around the corner and that we will be putting our clocks forward (see our article on page 10) on the 26th March, which coincidentally is also Mothers Day. Of course we have other things to celebrate in March, British Pie Week is held from the 6th to the 12th March, and I am sure many of you will be having a drink or two on the 17th March to celebrate St Patrick’s Day, and we have already seen several celebrities telling us what they will be doing to raise money for Comic Relief (Red Nose Day) on the 24th. Easter falls in April (Easter Sunday is the 16th) and yes the shops are already selling Easter eggs. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY Things Mothers Say and What They Really Mean You love your mum to bits and she loves you, so how can a comment from her make your blood boil?

“For All Your Motoring Needs”


& Fall Back I always thought that the reason we changed our clocks was to accommodate the long days needed for the harvest. It never occurred to me that it was because some bug collector wanted to spend more time collecting insects.

This year you will need to change your clocks forward

an hour on Sunday 26th March at 1.00am. This means you will lose an hour of sleep or precious drinking time for those of you that are about enjoying a Saturday night on the town. However, what you get in return is longer days. But why do we bother changing the times at all, and whose idea was it?

Daylight Saving Time

The debate about how we set our clocks has been going on since the expansion of the railways and standardised time was introduced, back in the 1840’s. But the idea of changing the clocks twice a year was first proposed in 1895 by an English-born entomologist and astronomer from New Zealand named George Vernon Hudson. George used to do shift work and during his time off he would spend hours collecting and studying insects. He valued the daylight hours so much that he presented a paper to the Wellington Philosophical Society, proposing that they considered the following. “To alter the time of the clock at the equinoxes so as to bring the working hours of the day within the period of daylight, and by utilising the early morning, so reducing the excessive use of artificial light which at present prevails.” However George’s ideas were not followed through.

Building Brighter Mornings

Ten years later in 1905, a British builder called William Willett raised the issue again. Williams’s idea was far more complex and instead of moving time by an hour, he suggested setting the clocks 20 minutes ahead on each of the four Sundays in April and then doing the same in reverse in September. This equated to eight changes in total, per year. 10

Enter The Politicians

Although Williams plan was complicated it did manage to attract the attention of MP Robert Pearce, who at the time represented the Liberal party. In 1908 he introduced a bill, outlining the ‘Daylight Saving Plan’ to the House of Commons, and a year later the first DSP bill was drafted and presented to parliament for consideration. Many people opposed the bill, especially farmers, and even though it was represented and examined by a select committee many times, it never made it’s way to becoming a law.

Wartime DST

There was, and still is, much press surrounding the controversial ideas regarding changing the clocks in order to save daylight. But it took an act of war to finally see it implemented. It was during the First World War and it was Germany that first decided to implement the plan, in an attempt to save fuel that was being used to provide artificial light, and use the fuel for the war effort instead. DST was implemented on the 30th April 1916 and soon after other countries decided to follow suit, including the United Kingdom just 21 days later.

FLEMINGS SIMPLY LETTINGS New Look For Long Standing Pudsey Lettings Agent Well known Pudsey “Lettings Only” Agent, Flemings, has launched into the new year with a brand new look. Director Adam Jones explains; “Flemings is a very well-known name that has been involved in property management in Pudsey and West Yorkshire for over 50 years. As part of the company’s continued development, we felt the new year was the right time to update our presence on the high street and on the web, with a fresh, clean brand image that will take us into the next decade.”

Adam adds; “Flemings has built a strong reputation for professional ‘no-nonsense’ management and advice, with a pro-active ‘can-do’ atitude to both landlords and tenants. If you’ve not called in before, please feel free to pop in to our new look Robin Lane offices for a chat, or check out our website at: www.flemingslets.co.uk. Oh, and don’t forget to keep an eye out on the streets for our new “Flemings Mini”…... give us a wave if you see us!”

Adam continues; “We only handle lettings, and therefore we are not distracted by selling property like most other agents in the area. It is important that our branding effectively communicates this to our customers, and so our strap line ‘Simply Lettings’ has become part of our corporate identity.” “As well as refurbished offices, providing what we believe is a fresh, customer-friendly environment, we now have a completely new shopfront reinforcing the brand on the high street. Our website has been totally re-designed, reflecting a more functional and ‘friction-free’ experience for landlords and tenants alike.”

Lava Cakes

Molten

Anyone who has tried this amazing dessert will want to repeat the experience time and time again. It is a particularly decadent treat that any chocolate lover will enjoy. The lava in the cake refers to the appearance, as when you cut the little mountainous shaped chocolate exterior, a delicious gooey chocolate cream oozes out and fills your plate with sheer deliciousness.

Many restaurants have their own recipe for this popular dessert, and some refer to it as a French chocolate fondant. But a chef in New York known as Jean-Georges Vongerichten claims to be the originator. It is said that one day he removed a chocolate sponge cake from the oven too early, and when cutting into it discovered that the inside although uncooked, was still delicious and a great texture, and so the molten lava cake was born. If you fancy having a try and making one for yourself, then here is a simple recipe for you to follow. However, if you are

feeling adventurous then this cake goes well with all kinds of adaptations too. Some chefs choose to add liqueurs to the centre, which adds a real touch of luxury. Coffee, mint, cherry brandy or Cointreau work really well with the chocolate flavour if you are feeling really naughty! Whichever way you like it, serve it with a huge dollop of cream, ice cream or a warm wintery custard and watch your diners faces light up, or for the summer months fresh raspberries and a light dusting of icing sugar is all that it needs.

ENJOY!

Have an EGGcellent Easter! As soon as there is a hint of spring in the air, chocolate Easter eggs and highly decorated bunnies fill the shelves. The tradition of giving decorated Easter eggs goes back a long way and although many of us believe it is a Catholic or Christian tradition, eggs have been found that predate history. Some can be traced back to the times of the ancient Egyptians and Sumerians who lived over 5000years ago.

Valley of the eggs

Way back in the times of the pharaohs it was not chicken eggs that were decorated, but much larger ones that came from ostriches. They were highly decorated with precious metals like silver and gold and intricately engraved and carved. Some were not eggs at all, but large metal representations of eggs that were buried with their masters in their tombs. Whether they were placed there as a grave god or a prized possession is unsure, and some believe, that like the Christian faith, they were placed to resemble resurrection in the afterlife, which as we now know the Egyptians were great believers in. Many have been found across the African countries, which indicates that this was a very common practice and one which went on for years if not centuries.

16

The Eggs of Rome

Easter Eggs are given at Easter to symbolise fertility and re0birth. The Christian tradition of decorating eggs can be traced as far back as the early Christians of Mesopotamia. Back then they stained their eggs red, in memory of the blood of Christ that was shed during his crucifixion. The Romans had well organised and documented rituals surrounding all things religious, and there is one that details the Easter Blessing of food. This includes blessings for lamb, bread and eggs. Later, many Christians believed that the egg symbolised the tomb in which Jesus was laid and when a bird appeared from the egg, it signified his resurrection.

Lenten Eggs

Many of us are aware that the reason we celebrate Pancake Day or Shrive Tuesday, is to use up all of the eggs in our households prior to fasting for the period known as lent which begins the following day on Ash Wednesday. Many believe that this tradition has also merged with the Easter egg tradition, as historically it was forbidden to consume meats, eggs or dairy during the period of lent that runs up to Easter. However the hens would not just stop laying and so by the time Easter arrived they had stockpiled quite a collection which needed to be eaten or used before they spoiled. This is why some countries traditional Easter dish is made primarily of eggs, such as Hornazo (bread stuffed with sausage and hard boiled eggs) in Spain and considering there were so many spare eggs lying around why many were given as decorated gifts or used to play games such as Easter egg hunts and downhill egg rolling.

Clever Curacao If you are a cocktail drinker, then this is liquor that you will already be familiar with. Although a drink in its own right, it is very rarely ordered on its own, and instead has been used to give a beautiful deep blue colour to many different cocktails the world over. Curacao liqueur or blue Curacao, as it is often called, comes from the Island with the same name that is situated in the southern Caribbean Sea, just off the coast of Venezuela. Spanish explorers that visited the island brought Valencian oranges with them, but the nutrient poor soil and the hot dry climate was unsuitable for the correct cultivation of the oranges, and what was produced resulted in a smaller citrus fruit, with a bitter taste. This inedible and really bitter fruit, however, had an aromatic peel, not dissimilar to the smell of the Valencian Oranges, and the essential oil that it produced gave off a delicious aroma. Soon the fruit was cultivated, just for the peel.

The Taste

Anyone that has tried the liquor will have experienced the sweet smell and taste which is similar to a bitter orange, but have you ever stopped and wondered why this drink is bright blue? The answer is actually really simple. As citrus fruits work really well with cocktails, the Senior family decided that giving the liquor a cocktail appearance would enhance sales, so a blue food colorant was added, and so the blue Curacao was born. There are other versions of Curacao that have been marketed, and often other colours are used in its production, naturally orange is a popular colour of choice, to match the smell. In some Caribbean Islands, coffee, chocolate and rum and raisin versions can also be bought. If you fancy trying a Curacao cocktail for yourself, then give this popular one a go. Remember that although this liquor looks attractive, it still has an alcohol content of 30%, so go easy with the amounts.

Production

The Curacao liqueur that we are all familiar with was first developed and marketed by the Senior family, in the 19th century. They cultivated the fruits, removed the peel and dried it to enhance the sweet fragrance of the essential oil. They then soaked the peels in a mixture of alcohol and water for several days to allow the oil to escape from the peel. The peel was then removed and spices were added to the liquid to enhance the flavour.

Blue Lagoon 50ml Vodka • 25ml Blue Curacao 100ml Lemonade • 1 cherry 1 slice of orange • Ice cubes Add your ice to the glass, next pour in all of the liquid ingredients and stir. Place the slice of orange on the side of the glass, and top with the cherry. Simple!

Easy Peasy Mother’s Day BRUNCH One way to really say thank you and to give your mum a nice, well deserved rest is to start her day off with a special breakfast after a nice lay-in. getting the children involved in the kitchen is always a fun thing to do and there are lots of easy recipes you can try. Just remember the idea is to give mum a treat and not a huge mess in the kitchen to clear up afterwards this really simple breakfast is a familiar favourite but with a little gourmet twist and not only taste great but it will impress your mum too! All you need is a grown up to help you with the oven and to oversee things, but the rest of it, even the smallest fingers can easily handle.

GOURMET BAKED EGGS

This is the perfect brunch that any little fingers will enjoy making, as long as a grown up is on hand to help. Midnight Walk 17 bleed.pdf

PREPERATION TIME: 20 Minutes SERVING: 4 INGREDIENTS:

2 Slices of Ham • 4 Large Eggs • 8 Fresh Spinach Leaves 8 Cherry Tomatoes • 100g Cheddar Cheese 4 Slices of Bread • Spreading Butter

DIRECTIONS:

Get a grown up to pre-heat the oven to180. Next take 4 ramekins and place them on a baking tray. Next slice the ham and spinach into strips using a kiddie safe knife or kiddie scissors. Place the strips into the bottom of the ramekin dishes. Next in a small bowl, squash the tomatoes up with your fingers and then place some of the tomato and the juice into the ramekin too. Wash up the small bowl and your hands and then use the bowl to break open one of the eggs. Once you have made sure there is no egg shell left in the bowl, gently pour the egg on top of the tomato, spinach and ham and try not to break the yolk. Do the same with each of the other eggs until all four ramekins are full. Next grate the cheese on the top of each of the ramekins and ask your grown up helper to put them in the oven. Cook them for 15 minutes or until the egg is completely set. Whilst the eggs are cooking, toast the bread slices, butter them with a generous amount of butter and cut each slice into 5 strips or soldiers. When the eggs are done ask an adult to help you place the hot ramekins onto plates and position the toasted slices around them, then go and surprise your mum in style. 22

Slightly Slang Nitty-Gritty

Idioms and common expressions or phrases are used every day in conversation. In fact, it is really difficult to have a conversation without using them and they are deliberately called ‘common phrases’ for a reason.

Some people will use loads of them and often pub banter is made up almost entirely of them. But have you ever stopped and realise just how many you use and how often? Or what they actually mean or where they come from? Here are some of the most popular ones you are likely to hear.

This is one phrase that you will probably wish you had never used, once you know where it’s origins lie, and are likely to think twice about using it in the future. It may sound like a sweet way of saying let’s get to the details, but this common phrase was actually used to barter and trade for human life. Slaves were treated worse than livestock and were traded in the same way. When a slave ship arrived in port the traders would agree a price by “getting down to the nitty-gritty” which refers to the ‘nit’s’ or fleas contained within their hair and the ‘grits’ which was the word used to describe the faecal matter that covered their bodies from the voyage.

Giving the cold shoulder

We use this as a way of communicating that someone is not welcome. In fact in medieval England this was a polite gesture. After a feast the host would let his guest know it was time to leave by giving them a gift of cold beer or mutton to take home with them, rather like a doggy bag.

Wrong end of the stick

We use this to describe a misunderstanding but in Ancient Rome getting the wrong end of the stick was a far messier affair. The Romans may have invented public toilets but they did not get round to inventing toilet paper. A bowl of salt water and a stick adorned with a sponge or cloth was their equivalent. This communal stick was passed to whoever needed it and as you can imagine getting the wrong end of the stick got you a lot more than just a misunderstanding.

The Whole Nine Yards

We use this to express that someone has tried their best. It actually comes from WWII fighter pilots who were given a 9 yard chain of ammunition. When the pilot used it all up on one target, other pilots would say he gave it “the whole nine yards”.

Saved by the Bell

PUDSEY CONCRETE LTD.

Many think that this expression comes from boxers in a ring, but its origin has a far more sinister undertone. Scarily being buried alive was actually a very common occurrence. People were so terrified of waking up covered in six feet of dirt that bells were constructed above graves and grave watchers were put on guard. The string was placed in the hands of the deceased and the guards would listen out for ‘whom the bell tolled’.

Harvesting

Herbs

Herbs are some of the easiest plants to grow, and they will thrive both inside and outside your home. Young plants and seed are readily available and just following a few tips will help you start your young plants off correctly and keep them lush and healthy.

them to a sunny spot in your garden for a few hours a day and then increase the time they spend in the sun over the next few days, allowing them to harden and get used to their new environment. By introducing them slowly you will avoid shocking them and remember to keep them well hydrated.

Perfect Positioning

Some herbs like a sunny position and others require a little shade, from the following herbs you can decide which will be best suited for your garden.

Sun Loving Herbs

These are herbs which naturally have a woodier stem which helps to retain precious water.

Slowly Does It

One of the most important things when buying young plants is that the lovely, lush babies you buy are just that, very young and unexposed. They have been produced in a different environment from your garden and are used to sheltered, humid, sun free, well watered greenhouses. This means it is essential to look after them before you put them outdoors. You must give them time to acclimatise and this can be achieved by slowly and carefully exposing them. Start them off inside for a few days, then take them out and place them in a shady spot for a week or two. Gradually introduce

Lavender

Look for ‘Lavendula’. This is a midsized shrub with aromatic leaves and blue flowers. It is a beautiful shrub which will provide tasty seeds that can be used in baking. Because the leaves are thick and tough, this plant does not need too much acclimatization. It is very hardy and can withstand both the sun and the wind. It does not need too much water; young plants only need watering every two or three days. Mature plants will need to be watered about once or twice a week. You will need to prune and shape it in order to keep it looking nice and healthy.

Rosemary

These are a sun loving plant that provides fragrant stems for cooking. It is similar to Lavender when it comes to the amount of water it needs. However, it will grow much taller, possibly up to four or five feet in height so it is best to plant it at the back of your flower bed. It can be pruned into shape and when harvesting simply use a pair of scissors and cut off the young growth.

Thyme

This is another tough and hardy perennial that usually grows low to the ground and spreads into small mounds. This herb likes the sun but will also thrive in partial shade. This is a very thirsty plant and needs to be well watered and fed. Thyme really needs a little TLC to keep it growing well and can be harvested and shaped with scissors.

Sage

This is a fleshy and bushy shrub that will grow to about two feet. If you want the plant to bush outwards then just nip off the young growth tips and it will do the rest. This is a very pretty plant to have in the garden and a great culinary herb. Sage will become woody and you need to prune it back hard in the autumn/spring. Don’t worry as it will happily regrow back. Keep it well shaped, fed and watered and it will grow happily in both the ground and in a pot.
