Hello Again, It was told that one of our press department technicians was showing his friend around the pressroom when he was asked, “How long have you worked here?” He answered, “Ever since the boss threatened to fire me.” Yet in the pressman’s defense, Abraham Lincoln said, “My father taught me to work, he didn’t teach me to love it.” This morning while sitting with my wife in our kitchen sharing a pot of hot tea, we chatted about our trip to Ireland. We recalled visiting with Aunt Phoebe in the kitchen of the house my grandfather built. You could never forget Aunt Phoebe’s oven-hot scones and Irish soda bread, or the steaming hot tea. I swear the women of Ireland have locked in the secret of making hot tea. With a cup of tea, a few slices of soda bread, two soft-boiled eggs in a cup—a dash of salt and pepper with a wee nab of real butter, you quickly learn why the Irish of this country long to visit the ole sod again. Aunt Phoebe asked Uncle Joe, “Joe, how do you want your egg this morning?” He answered, “Next to another one.” A man by the name of Paddy McGill lived and worked on the family farm. Like so many Irish, he enjoyed stirring things up on occasion. He took special delight in teaching my brother who was about three years old how to swear in both English and Gaelic. It appeared he was a willing student. If you have soft tender ears, maybe you should jump over this part. After putting in a hard day of work in the building business, granddad and our father would stretch their legs and walk into the village of Ballyconnel for a mug of stout. Believing if one wouldn’t hurt you, two had to be better. One evening as they walked towards the village, brother Wesley who was about three, started following them down the dirt road. After threatening several times to get Wesley to turn back, he stopped in the middle of the road with his hands on his hips, yelled “Then go on with ya—you pair of b_______ (word used to identify a fatherless child.)” This proved to be Paddy’s greatest accomplishments—face it, the story has lasted for nearly eighty years. While Grandfather Tom has been gone for years, thoughts about him still come up in family conversations. My mother lived in the new home for only a short time before immigrating to the United States. Mom spent most of her growing up years in the old thatchedroof house farmhouse across the road. The only source of heat in the farmhouse was a large stone fireplace fueled by peat. The peat was harvested in a community-owned peat bog, owned in common with other landowners. It was Mom’s duty during her home years to drive an ass (donkey) with an A-framed saddle across its back—holding two large woven baskets to transport the bricks of dried peat from the bog to their farmhouse.

Original Valley PENNYSAVER • May 5, 2012

Page 7

Sometimes it seems that our family has lived in two different worlds or times. Can you imagine—now days—that you could or would require your young daughter to lead an ass, with a load, carrying creel strapped to its back to a bog—load the two baskets with bricks of peat, return to your home, unload and stack the peat bricks in the byre (barn), or could the answer be “why not?” It’s often been said if you want to loose friends, talk about religion or politics. On the other hand, a question could and maybe should be asked and answered. Should we Americans care enough about our country, our way of life, including our freedom to get involved and share opinions? I for one believe if we stand aside and do not get involved we will eventually lose our wonderful way of life. Remember the chatter about Mom as a young girl in Ireland on her family farm helping the family way of life by having certain chores? Keep this in mind as you read on. President Obama’s secretary of the United States Federal Government Department of Labor, Hilda Solis, was recently proposing a new law that farm parents could no longer ask or allow their children to work on the farm. This is not blarney; it’s a fact. It caused such a political stink, Secretary Solis was told to table the proposal. Can you imagine if you owned a dairy, beef, produce, fruit or crop farm here in upstate New York and you could not allow your 6 foot 2 inch, 190 pound son to help or even learn by doing anything on the family farm? I have no choice but to believe the members, including Secretary Hilda Solis of the Department of Labor, have never worked for a half hour on a farm in their lives nor do they intend to. In fact, they know nothing about farm family life. Is this ridiculous proposal about farm family life and labor a show plate of what is yet to come? How this administration thinks! What will be next? If we are told we can’t work, will we someday be told where we can work—or must work? How much power do you think our federal government should have? I believe it has already over-reached its limit and we the people should voice our opinion against further big federal government growth. Please accept my apology—I was not yet able to organize the first general meeting of the Palatine Corridor Dream. An apple and a chuckle a day keep the doctor away. The pastor said to a farmer named Jake, “You claim you can’t donate because you owe everybody. Don’t you feel like you owe the Lord something too?” Jake answered, “Yes, but he isn’t pushing me like the rest.” If you see my blue three-wheeled Spyder motorcycle bopping around the country, say hi. I won’t be able to hear you but somehow I’ll know you care. We are so happy to be back home. Travel this life with God as your co-pilot. Say hello to your neighbors.

The Kitchen Diva

by Angela Shelf Medearis Create a home spa for Mother’s Day If you’re looking for an unusual (and budget-friendly) gift Mother’s Day, why not create a spa at home? You can pamper Mom using a few simple recipes that will make her feel loved from head to toe. When mixing your home spa treatments, use fresh, high quality ingredients for the best results. All of the ingredients can be found in your refrigerator, pantry or local grocery store. Never use ingredients for your home spa treatments that you wouldn’t want to eat. Your skin, the largest organ on your body, breathes and is

porous. It will absorb the properties of the ingredients you are using. Finally, ensure the containers or jars you will be using are sterile by boiling them in hot water. This will help prevent contamination of your finished product, which could lead to spoilage. Do not store the assembled spa treatments any longer than the shelf life of the most perishable ingredient. A pretty box or basket filled with jars of your custom-made spa treatments, a decorative label you create, hand-written or printed instruction labels, and a note of appreciation for your Mom makes the perfect gift for Mother’s Day!

Cucumber hair treatment If Mom loves to swim or has trouble with dry hair, this home-made spa treatment works wonders to combat the effects of chlorine damage and adds moisture to the hair. 1 egg 3 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 medium-sized cucumber, peeled and

chopped Blend egg, olive oil and cucumber in a blender or food processor until smooth. Spread evenly through hair, leave on for 10 minutes, rinse thoroughly and pat dry. (Recipe courtesy of Guide to Spas.) (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

CCEFM Master Gardeners to hold plant sale on May 12 Vegetable growers and flower gardeners alike will find quality-stock plants at the annual Master Gardener Plant Sale sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Exten-sion in Fulton and Montgomery Count-ies. The sale will be held in the parking lot of Udderly Delicious, North Comrie Avenue (State Highway 30A) in Johnstown on Saturday, May 12, 9 a.m. until the plants are essentially sold out. A wide variety of vegetable bedding plants, including several varieties of tomatoes, annuals and perennial flower plants, and some house plants will be featured in this year’s sale. Homeowners who wish to spruce up their grounds in preparation of celebrations, add some color to their landscapes, fill some window boxes or patio planters, or just plant a flower garden will find beautiful color and selection. Volunteer master gardeners will be on hand to help you make selections to plant together into containers or directly into your landscape. A major goal of

the plant sale is to provide one-on-one expertise on-thespot to customers. “This plant sale is a unique experience because there are master gardeners who can answer your questions about preparing your space and planting the plants to help you be successful with the plants you decide to buy.” says seasoned master gardener Deb Landrio. Plant Sale shoppers will also be able to purchase seed packets for the Family Pumpkin & Sunflower Project. Small packets of sunflower seeds, giant pumpkin seeds, and seeds to grow small pumpkins will be available for 50 cents each to encourage families and youth to garden together. The project, formerly a contest, will have seeds available while supplies last. Questions about the sale may be directed to Cornell Cooperative Extension in Fulton and Montgomery Counties at 518-6735525 x 101. Proceeds from the sale will augment learning opportunities for the local Master Gardener Program.

Whatchamacallits’s longrange forecasting team predicted in October that the season just past would be “another brutally cold and snowy winter for a large part of the country.” It should be noted that wasn’t the only prognosticator to get it wrong. There was a time when a forecast like that would have been a no-brainer. Climate scientists call the era the Little Ice Age. While not a true ice age like the one that ended 10,000 years ago, the Little Ice Age did see average global temperatures drop by 2-3 degrees. Some experts say the Little Ice Age began as early as 1250 when the Atlantic pack ice began to grow, however NASA defines the period as 1550 to 1850. In North America, the winter of 1780 saw New York Harbor

freeze solid, allowing people to walk from Manhattan to Staten Island. One way to increase the ease of getting around in winter was to strap a pair of ice creepers to the instep of your shoes with a leather strap. The blacksmith made ice creepers shown here belong to Willis

“Skip” Barsheid Jr. and, based on comparison, could date back to the American Revolution. Ice creepers were used because of the rough back country in America. Frozen waterways were often used as a means of travel and ice creepers made that possible.

Money raised for Ayres Memorial Animal Shelter Lee Publications and other local businesses recently teamed up to show their support of Animal Cruelty Awareness Week through a special section in the Original Valley Pennysaver. A portion of the proceeds went directly to Ayres Memorial Animal Shelter to help with the cost of caring for the animals. Beth Snyder and Kristen Lee presented a check from Lee Publications to Ayres Vice President Joseph Rosemyer in the amount of $1000. As a no-kill, quality of life shelter, Ayres provides a safe haven for abandoned and unwanted animals until a loving home can be found. The shelter takes in more than 750

dogs and cats each year, making sure each animal receives all necessary shots, wormings and other medical treatments as needed. All adult animals are spayed or neutered before being put up for adoption. Ayres is hoping to break ground in late summer on a 52 feet by 32 feet addition that will house two surgical units. This will help reduce the stress to the animals when bringing them back and forth from the vet’s office. For more information on how you can help call 518-673-5670, e-mail visit their website at or just stop by to see the animals in person.

Most people paint their ceiling white or off-white because these shades reflect light and coordinate well with other colors. Ceilings, however, can be one of the best places to use a fun splash of color. High ceilings can benefit from a lightly tinted color to make

rooms that might appear too large and expansive feel more human and cozy. Painting low ceilings with semi-gloss paint, on the other hand, will make them seem higher. Crown molding in a darker color can draw the eye upwards.
