Pet Projects $     )

Pet owners are famously free with their cash: nothingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too expensive for a beloved dog, cat, budgie or Vietnamese pot-bellied pig. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken a while for the technology industry to notice, but now they have and there are all kinds of high-tech gizmos for your furry or feathered friends. )RUJHWDXWRPDWLFSHWĂ DSVDQG anti-bark collars: the new wave of pet tech includes health monitors, cameras and even exercisers. The star of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Consumer Electronics Show or its pet division at least - was Voyce, which is essentially DĂ&#x20AC;WQHVVWUDFNHUIRUGRJV,W isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cheap - itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s around ÂŁ200 for the collar and another ÂŁ10 per month - but the pitch is that by monitoring your dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activity, breathing, heart rate and calories itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give you early warning of any potentially dangerous and expensive health problems. Voyce will go on sale later this year, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entering a market thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already looking a bit crowded: in addition to Voyce there are SHWĂ&#x20AC;WQHVVWUDFNHUVLQFOXGLQJ Fitbark (around ÂŁ60) and Whistle (also around ÂŁ60). If you think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit odd, wait until you hear No More Woof: the ÂŁ50 No More Woof '

gadget promises to convert doggy brainwaves into human speech. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect to engage in scintillating conversation with your ShihTzu, though: the repertoire is currently limited to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hungryâ&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m tiredâ&#x20AC;?, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;who are you?â&#x20AC;? The developers say that No More Woof is a work in progress, though, and early sales of the device will enable them to make it smarter, more useful and - we hope - more comfortable. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine our own dog putting up with a No More Woof headset for more than a few seconds. Another way to get an insight into your petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life is to shell out for an Eyenimal camera. The Petcam is available for cats and dogs, attaches to your petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collar and records whatever he or she sees; you can then transfer the footage to your computer. Expect to pay around ÂŁ60. Some pet gadgets appear to be practical jokes, but the GoDogGo is perfectly serious: its Automatic Ball Thrower is a ÂŁ99 gadget based on the automated tennis ball machines that tennis players use in training. The GoDogGo will happily hurl tennis balls 5 to 10 metres, exercising your dog while you sit back and

relax. Have you ever wished you could take your pet bird for a walk? The people behind the Feather Tether hope you have, because their ÂŁ12.99 bird harness means your bird can go wherever you are without fear of injury or â&#x20AC;&#x153;the tragedy of Ă \DZD\VÂľ7KHKDUQHVVFRPHV LQĂ&#x20AC;YHVL]HVDQGDUDQJHRI colours. If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always be with your pet, Petcube might be the answer: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a smartphonepowered gadget which contains a wide-angle camera and microphone for streaming KLJKGHĂ&#x20AC;QLWLRQYLGHRDQG audio to your iPhone or iPad. There are speakers and a low-intensity laser pointer to transmit your voice and amuse your cat respectively. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll cost around ÂŁ160 when it goes on sale in May. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a pet, the iPhone/iPad app also enables you to log into other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public Petcubes (with their permission) and annoy their pets instead - and if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the laser pet toy you want, the Frolicat Bolt automatic laser toy is currently ÂŁ20.01 on Amazon. ,PDJHVOHIWWRULJKW9R\FHĂ&#x20AC;WQHVV tracker for dogs, Eyenimal Petcam, GoDogGo Automatic Ball Thrower, Petcube

Detroit Motor Show Stars   -

James Baggott reports on the      big new" car debuts breaking cover in Motor City "

 (

By James Baggott, editor of CarDealerMagazine.co.uk

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the most iconic car shows in the motoring calendar, and this year the stars were out in full force in Detroit.

benchmarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the segment. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to wait and see about that â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little doubt theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the looks spot on.

As the covers came off the cars in Motor City, we were treated to some key new model introductions and not just from the home American brands.

Toyota FT-1

The Europeans, Japanese and Koreans were all out in full force too with some stellar debuts of key cars for the UK market. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our pick of the new models.

Mercedes C Class This is big news for one of the most competitive sectors in the UK market. Meet Mercedesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new C Class, a FDUWKDW¡OOWDNHWKHĂ&#x20AC;JKWWRLWV bitter rival, and better selling, BMW 3 Series. Merc has worked wonders in the cabin â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the quality is stunning and will make German rivals sit up and take notice. The manufacturer says this is WKHLUÂśPRVWDJLOHDQGHIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQW car everâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and will be a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;new '*

This bonkers crazy concept was created by Toyotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sandal wearing Californian design team â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fear, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no hippy machine. The FT-1 stands for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Future Toyotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and while it is said to be a spiritual successor to the iconic Supra and 2000GT itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really designed to show the makerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future design direction. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no word on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s under the bonnet at present, but rumour has it itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely to be a traditional combustion engine with high output.

BMW M4 / M3 Nothing gets car fans excited quite like an M-badged BMW and Detroit had not one, but two of them. The M4 is the new name in the line-up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the coupe version of the performance car. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new M3, now a saloon only, and both share a new sixcylinder turbo-charged unit

IRUWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWWLPH%0:VD\V emissions and fuel economy are 25 per cent better, though, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mourn the V8â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death for too long. The new 2 Series Coupe was shown off in Detroit too â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but it stole little of the limelightâ&#x20AC;Ś

InďŹ niti Q50 Eau Rouge If the Q50 is up-and-coming ,QĂ&#x20AC;QLWL¡VDQVZHUWRWKH Series and C Class, then this is the AMG or M-badged ULYDO'UDSHGLQFDUERQĂ&#x20AC;EUH and drawing inspiration from the Red Bull F1 team hookup, the Eau Rouge concept â&#x20AC;&#x201C; named after Spaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all-ornothing corner â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is believed to get a 500bhp powerplant if it ever gets the go-ahead.

Porsche 911 Targa Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a name synonymous with the 911 and has accounted for 13 per cent of all sales of the legendary model â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back. The looks wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appeal to everyone, but the crazy roof mechanism on the 911 Targa will make grown men weak at the knees. The rear glass dome hinges back for the roof

bodywork, this Mini wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be for everyone. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little more than a design study at present, with few details about powerplant or performance, but it does give Mini fans an idea what the next hot Mini will look like.

If you thought the Golf GTI was good, wait until you see this! With a 296bhp turbocharged engine, four-wheel drive and a 0-60mph time of OHVVWKDQĂ&#x20AC;YHVHFRQGVLW¡VWKH fastest Golf on sale. Due in showrooms in the Spring itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely to cost a fraction under ÂŁ30,000. Quad exhausts and new front and rear bumpers mark the R out.

Audi Allroad Shooting Break Believe it or not, this is the strongest indication yet of what the next TT will look like. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be an estate (well,

Hobbies Home Brewing Revival

by Ted Bruning

And as soon as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d managed to escape, guess where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d head... However, these days itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more to do with lifestyle, and home brewing guru Nigel Sadler puts it down to what he calls the Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall effect. Chelmsford-based Nigel runs a training company called Learn2brew and says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen interest in home brewing skyrocket in recent years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crafts in general have a much wider appeal now than they used to,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Home brewing, home winemaking, and home cidermaking have really taken off. Partly itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because there are now so many microbrewers that people have the chance to try many different beers and are getting generally more interested in the whole subject. Partly itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because TV chefs and lifestyle presenters like Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Heston Blumenthal are encouraging a have-a-go attitude.â&#x20AC;? To that combination has to be added the miracle ingredient of the modern age: the internet. Twenty years ago, Boots â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the only national retailer of home brew supplies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; reluctantly decided to pull out of the market. Then WKHPDLORUGHUĂ&#x20AC;UPVTXLFNO\ followed by the independent shops, discovered internet trading. The whole craft took off again; and now Wilkinson, the 400-strong high street discount chain, has taken up where Boots left off. So now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to get start-

ed. And at entry level, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an easy craft to pursue: you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need anything more than a EUHZLQJEXFNHWZLWKDWLJKWĂ&#x20AC;Wting lid, a kettle, and a brewing kit comprising a packet of ready-hopped malt extract and a sachet of yeast. If you just follow the instructions youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty much bound to get a more than passable beer for your efforts. But be warned! Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve started itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to stop. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfectly possible to bump along at this most basic level for ever and be perfectly VDWLVĂ&#x20AC;HG%XWEUHZLQJLVD seductive business, especially if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the type who enjoys browsing the market and sampling different beers. From brewing with kits you venture into trying your own recipes then before you know it youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have graduated from using malt extract into buying whole grains. It can be a sociable hobby, too. The local home brew shop (where there is one) tends to turn into a bit of a social centre, as specialist shops so often do; and in most areas thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a home brewing club that holds troubleshooting sessions and competitions. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a UK Craft Brewing Association as well, which holds its own competition; so one day you PLJKWZHOOĂ&#x20AC;QG\RXUVHOIEHLQJ crowned national champion... and toasting your triumph in your own beer! Â&#x2021; 7RĂ&#x20AC;QGRXWLIWKHUH¡VDKRPH brew shop nearby, visit www.jimsbeerkit.co.uk or www.homebrewshops.co.uk

 

 !   .    Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the rubbish they put on the telly these days. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expensive to go out. Who knows? One thingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for sure, though: crafts and hobbies are making a big comeback. Not unnaturally, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to spend all your evenings and weekends honing your amateur expertise, you want the end result to be something that you can be proud of. And nothing beats beer really, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why home brewing is enjoying a great revival. In days of yore, the main reason why people brewed their own beer was that they were either broke or miserly. Hobbyists who brewed their own would gloatingly tell you how little their beer had cost compared to the price of a pint in the pub. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to be mad to pay that muchâ&#x20AC;? they would cry, before forcing you to drink some of the stuff.

Call To Collect $ The   

by Kate McLelland

Collecting rare and interesting objects is a great way to spend your leisure time and, with any luck, you may even PDNHDSURĂ&#x20AC;WZKHQ\RXĂ&#x20AC;QDOO\ sell your collection on. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to you whether you choose to collect conventional items or whether you start a completely new and original collection of \RXURZQ<RXZLOOĂ&#x20AC;QGSOHQW\ of bizarre examples online to give you inspiration. So what should you collect? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re short of ideas right now, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t panic. Just read on and see what appeals to you. Philately â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or stamp collecting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is going through a bit of a crisis at the moment, with only the rarest items attracting the interest of serious buyers. However with fewer and fewer stamps actually in use these days, there may come a time when the pleasure of collecting stamps is matched by the Ă&#x20AC;QDQFLDOUHZDUGLWEULQJV Fifty years ago children used to be keen collectors, but nowadays young enthusiasts are a rarity. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, however, mean that numbers are declining: the Royal Philatelic Society of London claims that its membership has increased recently and there are a number of thriving stamp collecting clubs throughout the UK. Thimbles are available 

at reasonable prices and they can be easily kept and displayed. The earliest known thimble dates from the Han Dynasty (206BC - 202AD) in China. In the UK, thimbles made from cast brass were in widespread use by the 14th century. Not all thimbles are suitable for sewing. Some, made of early Meissen porcelain or even gold - were given as keepsakes and in the 19th century thimbles were even used to measure spirits.

Coin collecting - or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;numismaticsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is one of those hobbies that unites the generations in a shared fascination with the past. We can all identify with handling coins and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fascinating to own one that may have rattled LQVRPHERG\HOVH¡VSRFNHWĂ&#x20AC;YH hundred or even a thousand years ago. An increase in metal detecting means that buried coins are constantly being discovered and traded. Collectors can join a wider community of enthusiasts who

are usually happy to share information and expertise. It is rather overwhelming to choose from the enormous range of coins available so beginners would be well advised to specialise in a single country or historical period. Thematic collections are also popular â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as coins depicting female monarchs only, or coins that come exclusively from Commonwealth countries. Wine collecting can be an expensive business, but the rewards are considerable if you invest wisely. A selection from Andrew Lloyd Webberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wine collection recently sold for ÂŁ3.5 million at auction, attracting bidders from all over Europe and Asia. The advice of wine experts is to buy more â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;blue chipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wine than you would normally drink, and keep the remaining bottles as an investment. If the wine goes up in price, you ZLOOPDNHDSURĂ&#x20AC;W,ILWIDLOV to increase in price, you can simply drink the rest. Collecting is a hobby like no other. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real excitement to be had in tracking down that special object, beating off your rivals and bringing it home to enjoy pride of place in your collection. If this article hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t DOUHDG\Ă&#x20AC;UHG\RXXSKHUH¡V hoping you discover your collecting passion soon.

Bank Holidays  " ( I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you wait for weeks and weeks for a day off 4   

work and then four come along all at once. And I blame the Pope. By Ted Bruning

Pope Francis seems happy about the forthcoming bank holidays.

He is, after all, the man who decides the date of Easter. This year itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on 20 April â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is almost as late as it can be and means that we have four Bank Holidays (Good Friday, Easter Monday, the Spring Bank Holiday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; except in Scotland â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the May Bank Holiday) within the space of six weeks. So if you like your precious days off well spread out, you might ask the Pope: why is Easter so late this year? And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you the following: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The date is calculated thuswise. The ancient Jewish feast of Pesach or Passover, for reasons best known to ancient Jewish people, falls on the full moon on or immediately after the vernal equinox. The Last Supper was held on Passover, or so it says in the New Testament; the &UXFLĂ&#x20AC;[LRQWRRNSODFHRQWKH following Friday; so ipso facto the Resurrection â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is why we have Easter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was on WKHĂ&#x20AC;UVW6XQGD\DIWHUWKHIXOO moon that followed the vernal equinox. Which this year happens to be on 20 April. Geddit?â&#x20AC;? Got it. But the dates of public holidays have always been 

contentious, with various people having various reasons for wanting them shifted. Some donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want them at all: patriots to the bone they may be, but many industrialists really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the Government awarding us extra hols for the Royal Wedding in 2011 and the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Diamond Jubilee in 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two daysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lost production!â&#x20AC;? they wailed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll cost us a bomb!â&#x20AC;? On the other hand the retailers of beer and bunting were over the moon. Bank Holidays, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think, ZRXOGEHIDLUO\Ă&#x20AC;UPO\Ă&#x20AC;[HG1RW a bit of it. Until 1834 the Bank of England used to observe all 33 Roman Catholic Holy Days of Obligation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is daft!â&#x20AC;? said the directors eventually, and cut it to four â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Good Friday, May Day, All Saints (1 November), and Christmas Day. But come on, that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough. So in 1871 the Bank Holidays Act added Easter Monday, Whit Monday (the seventh Monday after Easter), WKHĂ&#x20AC;UVW0RQGD\LQ$XJXVW (instead of All Saints), and Boxing Day. And for nearly a century that seemed to suit. We all went on charabanc excursions to the seaside or (if posh) had long

weekends in the country or just stayed home and sorted the garden, and until 1965 we were very happy. That year, the August Bank Holiday was moved to the end of the month. In 1971 Whit Monday, the last moveable feast apart IURP(DVWHUZDVĂ&#x20AC;[HGDVWKH last Monday in May. In 1975 Harold Wilson made New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day a Bank Holiday in England and Wales (it already was one in Scotland); and in 1978 Jim Callaghan, dyed in the wool leftie that he was (!) made May Day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which had been left out of the 1871 Act ²RIĂ&#x20AC;FLDO Now the tinkerers are out in force again. Some want national Saintsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; days â&#x20AC;&#x201C; St Davidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day and St Piranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day (is Cornwall a nation? You decide) in March, St Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day in April, St Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day in November â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to be made RIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOKROLGD\V7KHUH¡VDOVR a move to scrap one or other of the May Bank Holidays and move it to October to mark Trafalgar Day. Someone even proposed a Margaret Thatcher Dayâ&#x20AC;Ś Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll say no more!

The long and the short of curtains A well-designed set of curtains can complement your architecture, provide a starting point for an interior design scheme and, in general, give your room a sophisticated feel. Katherine Sorrell explains all.

Headings and hangings

The way in which a curtain hangs is determined by its heading, often created by a tape which is sewn onto the back of the curtain and pulled to form gathers, pleats or a variety of other styles. Some headings are only suitable for certain weights of fabric and sizes of curtain. Tab- and tie-tops are a less formal look and often found on ready-made curtains. Curtains can also be hung from a deep hem which is simply slid over a pole, from large eyelets punched in the top, from clips or even just from hooks.

Poles, tracks, wires and rods The most straightforward way to hang curtains is from a pole, ideal for short, straight UXQV3ROHVPLJKWEHĂ&#x20AC;[HGRU H[WHQGLQJPDGHIURPZRRG wrought iron, steel, brass, bamboo, acrylic or glass in various diameters. Designed to be on show, they require a certain amount of clearance above and below to look right. 7RĂ&#x20AC;QLVKRIIWKHSROHDWHLWKHU end, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the option of a SODLQFDSRUDSDLURIĂ&#x20AC;QLDOV from simple or highly ornate. A more subtle effect can be achieved by using a track *

rather than a pole; this is usually a better option for bay windows, too, as they can be EHQWDURXQGWRĂ&#x20AC;W

Window disguises Curtains will cover tracks but only, of course, when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re closed. When open, if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the look of a bare track, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need either a pelmet or a valance. Pelmets, normally made from wood or medium density Ă&#x20AC;EUHERDUGFDQHLWKHUEH painted or covered in a fabric to match or co-ordinate with your curtains. A valance is a set of UXIĂ HVPDGHHQWLUHO\IURPIDEULF and attached to a track, pelmet board or rail.

Floor-length curtains are more fashionable than sill-length these days, though shorter curtains can be practical when radiators or window seats are in the way, or in stairways or kitchens.

Fabric Curtains can be made of

practically any fabric, from cotton and linen to velvet, silk or wool. As well as the conventional fabrics, consider unusual ones such as tweed, Ă HHFHPRKDLURUGHQLP7KH heavier the fabric, the better it will hold a fold, though very heavy fabrics will be too bulky for smaller windows.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth knowing that linings can shrink at a different rate to curtains when washed, so either have them detachable or prepare to have the whole lot dry-cleaned.

Chocolate and

 Eggs: Easter Food     

Superheroes or  ( Arch-villains?  At Easter, eggs are everywhere â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both the decorated hardboiled variety and the tempting chocolatey type. But whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the latest advice about eating eggs and chocolate? Do they harm or heal?

EGGS Once considered a nutritional Big Bad Wolf, a better understanding of how our body uses food means eggs are now seen as an important nutritional source. Packed with goodness A medium egg is very low in carbohydrates, supplies over 10% of our daily protein needs and contains just 66 kcals and 4.6g of fat (less than a third is saturated). It also supplies many essential vitamins and minerals, including 3 often scarce in UK diets: it provides a third of our daily Vitamin D requirement (vital for bones, teeth and muscles), over half of our required Vitamin B12 (for red blood cell formation, energy metabolism and healthy immune and nervous systems), and nearly half of our selenium requirement. Around 20% of us have inadequate Vitamin D levels, and as eggs also contain useful amounts of Vitamin A, Vitamin B2, folate, biotin, iodine and phosphorous, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  

not surprising that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re increasingly recommended as DKHDOWK\DQGIXOĂ&#x20AC;OOLQJIRRG What about cholesterol? And salmonella? At one time eggs were supposedly rather bad for us and we were given a weekly â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;safeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; limit. The concerns stemmed from misunderstandings about cholesterol, the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;baddieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that furred up our blood vessels. But research shows that cholesterol found in eggs and other foods has a negligible effect on our cholesterol OHYHOZKLFKLVLQĂ XHQFHG by many factors. Our body produces its own cholesterol, and although saturated fat has long considered the chief culprit in raising our blood cholesterol level, a fresh look at the evidence has recently cast doubt on this. As for salmonella â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while the Food Standards Agency is recommending, for now, that vulnerable groups should only eat hard-boiled eggs, the massive increase in chicken vaccination has more than halved yearly cases of infection. Eggs with the Lion Mark are guaranteed to come from vaccinated chickens, and all of the 150,000 Lion Mark eggs tested during the last two years were salmonella free.

CHOCOLATE For years chocolate stood accused of causing acne, obesity, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease and diabetes, to name just a few. But research has shown itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not necessarily guilty, and may also have positive effects. â&#x20AC;˘ Acne. 7KHUH¡VQRVFLHQWLĂ&#x20AC;F proof that chocolate causes acne. If there is a dietary link, studies suggests itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foods with a high glycaemic load. â&#x20AC;˘ Obesity & diabetes. Most chocolate is high in sugar and fat, so as with any other high-fat, high-sugar food, prolonged over-indulgence is likely to show on the scales. However, recent studies showed that chocolate can lower your insulin resistance (which could reduce your risk of developing diabetes) and leave you feeling full. In a trial on nearly 1,500 teens, those eating around 1.5 ounces of chocolate daily had less body fat than those eating 0.16 ounces, and also had more energy and higher activity levels. Scientists say 1.5 ounces a GD\PD\EHEHQHĂ&#x20AC;FLDOIRUXV good news! The bad news? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about a square and a half. While thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no need to avoid chocolate altogether

if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re diabetic, experts advise you to monitor your total carbohydrate intake. â&#x20AC;˘ Cardiovascular health, cholesterol levels and blood pressure. Many studies suggest that cocoa KDVEHQHĂ&#x20AC;FLDOHIIHFWVRQ cardiovascular health, improving blood pressure, vascular function and blood Ă RZ,WDSSHDUVWRUHGXFH platelet aggregation and adhesion, making arteries healthier and reducing clot risk. Chocolate with good levels of plant sterols and FRFRDĂ DYDQROVPD\ORZHU cholesterol slightly, but only â&#x20AC;&#x201C; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve guessed it - when eaten as part of a low fat diet. â&#x20AC;˘ Stroke. A study involving 44,489 people concluded that chocolate eaters were 22% less likely to suffer a stroke and 46% less likely to die from one.

â&#x20AC;˘ Brain function. Another study has shown that chocolate can help preserve EORRGĂ RZLQWKHEUDLQ and prevent memory decline in older people. This could be an important factor in diseases such as Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. â&#x20AC;˘ Mood. Chocolate contains chemicals that can raise our serotonin levels and may also affect other receptors in the brain that trigger feelings of well-being. â&#x20AC;˘ Migraine. While chocolate contains come chemicals believed to be migraine triggers, recent data shows that cocoa contains compounds that would EHEHQHĂ&#x20AC;FLDOLQPLJUDLQH treatment. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no need to avoid it unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a trigger. â&#x20AC;˘ Osteoporosis. Now for the bad news. Chocolate may contribute to osteoporosis.

One study of women aged 70-85 found that daily chocolate consumers had lower bone density and strength, which may be due to oxalate content, as oxalate reduces calcium absorption. Proper comparison studies havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been done between white, milk and dark FKRFRODWHEXWPRVWEHQHĂ&#x20AC;FLDO effects come from the cocoa content, while the unwanted effects are from the fat and sugar. So choose high cocoa content and low sugar and fat varieties when you can, and view chocolate as something to be eaten in moderation as part of a healthy diet.

Spend Now, Save Later days, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all being urged - These " 1 & "  to return to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;make do and mendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;; to reduce, reuse and recycle because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2 economical and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. But sometimes this can be false economy  â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and false ecology, too. Some things may be worth replacing or investing in. Cars Ever hung on too long to a car thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eventually cost more in total repairs than it did to buy? Buying a new (or even relatively new!) car is expensive, but in the long run it may save you money â&#x20AC;&#x201C; depending on what car you buy. ECONOMY: A new car VKRXOGEHPRUHIXHOHIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQW saving you money on petrol or diesel costs. Treat it well and it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need major maintenance for years, plus a brand new car wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need an MOT until itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three years old. ECOLOGY: Greater fuel HIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQF\DQGORZHUHPLVVLRQV mean newer cars tend to be greener.

Boilers Once again, we can hang on to boilers too long and they can be expensive to repair, particularly if you need to call someone out overnight or during a holiday. Maintenance contracts arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always cheap either. ECONOMY: Boilers account for around 55% of your energy costs; replacing your old one with an A-rated condensing boiler and modern heating controls will ensure your home and water are warm when needed but arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wasting energy when not, and could save you up to ÂŁ305 a year on (

energy bills. ECOLOGY: A new boiler will reduce your energy use and carbon dioxide emissions.

Water softeners About 60% of UK households have hard water that can damage and lessen the HIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQF\RIDSSOLDQFHV and heating systems; just 1.6mm of scale build-up can cause a 12% loss in heating HIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQF\6KRZHUKHDGV toilets, taps, pipes, radiators, boilers, kettles, dishwashers and washing machines will all need more frequent repair and replacement, not to mention the cost of limescale removers for appliances, sinks and toilets, and the greater quantities of detergent, shampoo, shower gel, washing-up liquid and toilet cleaner required. ECONOMY: British Water estimates that a water softener could save the average 4person household around ÂŁ200 a year. ECOLOGY:6RIWHQHGZDWHU can remove existing scale deposits over time in heating systems. Fewer chemicals and less energy are used, and appliances will need less frequent repair or replacement.

Solar Panels The governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s FIT (feed-intariff) scheme offers 20 years of

guaranteed, tax-free, indexlinked payments to households that produce their own electricity from renewable technologies. To make the biggest saving, use as many appliances as possible in the daytime when generating your own power. ECONOMY: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re paid for every kilowatt of energy you create, and every kilowatt you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use, which feeds back into the National Grid; and of course the bills from your supplier will drop dramatically too (solar panels create about two thirds of the energy necessary for a family of four). On average, installation costs around ÂŁ7000 and you may need to replace the inverter, which links the panels to your domestic supply, once every 20 years. It takes around 10-12 years to get back the cost of installation. Bear in mind that the FIT has dropped dramatically over the past few years, but then installation costs are dropping too. ECOLOGY: Your household will be producing renewable energy and none will be wasted, as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fed back into the Grid when unused. Always research any major purchase to ensure you get the best deal for you. By Alison Runham www.alison.runham.co.uk

Gardening Bringing Up Babies

by Pippa Greenwood

generally want to grow several individuals of the same species and I suggest you choose an odd number, perhaps three, or Ă&#x20AC;YHIRUDPXFKODUJHUJDUGHQ as this invariably makes a better display than if even numbers of plants are used. It may be tempting to plant too close and although this will provide a better looking display initially, over-crowded plants are less likely to become well established, will have to be moved in the near future and in the meantime will be more prone to numerous diseases.

snails at bay. Once you have dug over the whole bed, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well worthwhile adding a general fertilizer. If you notice that the soil is on the heavy side, I suggest incorporating plenty of bulky organic matter and grit. Similarly, if the soil is excessively dry, then you could try to improve its texture by incorporating large quantities of any good bulky organic matter. Once the plants DUHLQSRVLWLRQĂ&#x20AC;UPWKHVRLO thoroughly and do take care not to compact it if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the heavy side. Regular watering is essential and if the ground is not already quite moist, you should water the plants in well. Check them regularly for signs of any pests or diseases as it will be much easier to stop something in its tracks if you start to take action early on in the season.

A visit to any nursery or garden centre at this time of year will reveal a brilliant array of herbaceous perennials. Right now they might be small and not look particularly enticing but just take a look at the illustration on the label and you will see that these small plants have great potential. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also great value, usually somewhere around the ÂŁ1.50ÂŁ2.50 mark. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essential that newly planted perennials are given that little bit of extra tender loving care. Small plants such as these are more likely to be prone to any weather extremes and even plants in larger pots should be well established. When you ease the plants out of their pots, if you see a really plentiful supply of roots that usually means you have purchased a good plant. Check the plant labels to see the ultimate spread of the plant. For the best effect you *

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also essential to plant at the correct depth. With herbaceous perennials you need to make sure that you place the plant in the ground to the same depth that it was in the container and although you may decide to mulch the soil afterwards, do remember not to mulch right up to or over the crown of the plant, as this is likely to lead to poor growth and maybe even dieback. Weed control is essential and you can either hoe regularly between the plants to prevent the weeds causing competition or you can use a deep mulch or perhaps even place squares of landscape fabric or black polythene around each plant. Do remember however, if you use polythene, rain will not be able to penetrate through it and so the plants are more likely to suffer from drought. With landscape fabric this is not a problem. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a great fan of copper-impregnated and coated fabrics as these help to keep weeds and slugs and
