It seems only the old are able to sit next to one another and not say anything and still feel content. The young, brash and impatient, must always break the silence. It is a waste, for silence is pure. Silence is holy. It draws people together because only those who are comfortable with each other can sit without speaking. This is the great paradox .

In 1971 Anne and her husband opened a DIY shop in Heneage Road which they ran for 13 years. In 1984 after the shop was sold Anne went back to working as a private secretary for a Director of Ross Foods and continued with the company until her retirement in 2007. During this time Anne was also a piano teacher and Brown Owl, both of which she continued for 35 years. She also taught typing at Grimsby College at night school for several years. On retiring Anne joined the WRVS, working at the hospital on a voluntary basis in the Medical Records Office and then in the WRVS shop at the hospital. She joined the U3A 6 years ago and was Chairman for 3 years. She is now Secretary of the Association. Anne is also Secretary of the Quilling Guild and the Humber Landlords’ Association in Hull and an active member of the Trefoil Guild.

We are hoping to start a Luncheon club in a couple of months. At present we have two possibilities and are exploring more. One is a traditional English three course lunch around £4 and the second is an Indian three course meal around £5. We may be able to use both facilities. At present we would like to get an idea of possible interest and will be collecting names. Expressing interest does not commit you at all. This stage gives us an indication of the level of interest which in turn helps our negotiations. You can express your interest in both or one kind of Lunch. You may be happy to go once a week, once a fortnight or once a month. Himanshu will collect information at the meeting, but if you are not attending the meeting and are interested, please contact Himanshu by e mail or phone 343474.

Why is it that the minute cold weather hits, your skin gets dry and chapped? Partly because the colder the air, the less moisture skin can hold. But also, frigid air gums up the normally soft, fatty lipids that keep skin pliable. Think about what happens when you put something oily in the fridge: It turns into a gunky mass. Same idea here, but the results make skin less stretchy and more prone to cracking. What to do? Just what you're thinking: Get your hands on a serious moisturizer. It doesn't have to be a budgetbusting brand. In fact, it doesn't even have to be a moisturizer per se. Try a light sweep of sweet almond oil instead. It's so easily absorbed that there's no risk of looking like a walking oil slick. It's virtually scent-free, so no clashing with fragrances. Plus, it's a multitasker: Not only does it defend against moisture loss, but it has a healthy amount of vitamin E, a primo age-fighting antioxidant that can help keep your skin' young. Almond oil is in lots of products, from body lotions to cuticle balms. But the true beauty bargain is the real thing: 1 litre about £6.00 from
