What about an evening class? An investment in knowledge pays the best interest – Benjamin Franklin by Jo Simms Wow! Where did the summer go? Anyone see where it went...could have sworn it was here a couple of minutes ago. All too suddenly we’re reaching for the light-switch because it is getting to be evening time a little bit sooner than before and the shops are full of back-to-school stationery and clothing. And don’t even mention the Christmas card catalogue from a well-known charity that just landed on the doorstep.

You can get practical – car maintenance, basic woodworking, decorating, DIY garden landscape and design or you could go creative, with painting, pottery drawing, sketching. How about polishing up or adding to existing skills in cookery or computing? How about adding a wow-factor to your culinary arts with cake decoration, sugarcraft or learning some incredible international dishes?

While you might breathe just a teeniest sigh of relief that your precious angels are going back to school after the long summer break here’s a thought: why not join them? Come on, admit it, when was the last time you learned anything new? When did you do something that really provoked your interest, your desire to know more? Because the upside of the downside of the end of summer is that evening classes begin.

Does the idea of taking a basic conversational language course sound like a good idea for next year’s holiday? It would certainly beat miming and speaking slowly and loudly in English like you did this summer.

Now these can range from fullblown qualifications at college to help you in your career, to a lighthearted get together in the public library for a series of talks or a book club.

An evening class doesn’t just have to be cerebral; even if you don’t feel like taxing your brain, how about giving the body a workout? Check out the sports centres for keep-fit, Pilates, yoga, tai chi or

6 | West End Life – August/September 2016

swimming lessons for adults or improvers’ classes. Bowling clubs swap their outdoor activities for carpet bowling, which is a great introduction to the sport and a sure fire way to make new friends. And you might not be the only species in your house which might benefit from an evening class . . . Instead of sitting on the sofa with the dog gently snoozing away, its head in your lap, why don’t you pair of couch potatoes enrol in a dogtraining or agility class. Just think: you could take your dog for a walk instead of the other way round. Even if work patterns or the time constraints of busy family life mean you cannot commit to a full-blown course, make a point of checking the local notice boards or what’son section of the local paper and vow that you will go along to one-off talks or demonstrations throughout this autumn and winter. It will be surprising what you learn and who you’ll meet when you are there. After all, what is the point of sitting watching a reality show on television when you can add something real to your own life? @westendlife

Described by Professor Tom Markus as Glasgow’s “Loveliest little gallery”, the changing shows bring unusual artworks to the public. Currently the arts of Africa - masks, carvings, musical instruments, show objects seldom seen in Scotland, demonstrating the vast range of creations from Nigeria, Ghana, The Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso and other countries. Many were brought to Scotland by Christian missionaries who attempted to denigrate those objects (confiscated or stolen) as primitive, or pagan or other pejorative terms instead of acknowledging the beauty and sophistication of cultures and religions, which they made no attempt to understand.

This, the second exhibition of African art at the gallery, attempts to redress this imbalance, with a deeply researched catalogue by gallery assistant Sam Reilly. The gallery also offers limited edition prints by Alasdair Gray, with a series soon to be launched of images Alasdair has chosen from works never before available as signed prints, priced to make them affordable to meet Alasdair’s wish that ownership of his work be more widely achievable.

November of this year will see a great general exhibition at The Hidden Lane Gallery, covering all aspects of her work, with a “taster” of her visit to Germany.

The initial purpose of the gallery was to promote the works of Margaret Watkins, the Canadianborn photographer who lived in total obscurity for forty years in her mother’s family home in Westbourne Gardens, Hyndland, until her death in 1969. For many years, gallery owner Joe Mulholland cried in the (Scottish) wilderness telling of her wonderful achievements. Exhibitions were mounted in some of the most prestigious galleries throughout the United States - but no official recognition in her adopted country. The Hidden Lane Gallery has attempted to fill this gap with shows of her classic work, her visits to Paris, Leningrad, Moscow, London and of course, Glasgow. Four years ago, The National Gallery of Canada mounted a fabulous show covering her whole West End Life Magazine

career, and Canada Post issued a stamp with her ‘Kitchen Sink’. And, at last, ten images were mounted as a “sideshow” in the recent ‘Modern Scottish Women: Painters and Sculptors 1885 to 1965’ at The National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh.

By Jodie Molyneux

the essentials & non-essentials for your big move So you got a place on the university course of your dreams? Congratulations! You did it! But now, here comes the really hard bit...packing up a lifetime of belongings, dragging them up/down the motorway and shoehorning them into a cinderblocked cell....that’s right, it’s time to make the big move to halls! Forget the dorm-style set-ups you’ve seen in American films with wide beds and plush cushions (google ‘sorority bedroom’ and get ready to weep), the British reality is somewhat different; you are more likely to be able to touch both walls with your arms outstretched and walk a grand total of 3 steps before bumping into the sink inexplicably placed in the corner of your room. Seemingly styled on old jail layouts, halls are not the prettiest of places but no one can deny that they aren’t fun! Let’s get packing! But rather than list what you should take, let’s start with what not to take because it is far more likely that you will overpack and over-prepare in your wide-eyed naivety. The key is to pack as light as possible; moving to halls is only the first step in your academic career, and if your experience turns out to be anything like mine, you will end up moving to at least three different flats before graduation arrives. First of all: an iron,

14 | West End Life – August/September 2016

because who are you kidding? even if you do have a formal occasion to attend in first year (McDonalds job interview?), hanging clothes in a steamy bathroom should help the worst of the wrinkles to fall out. Secondly, a printer. You will need to print a lot of things, sure, but any university library worth their salt will have plenty of high-quality printers with never-ending ink for a tiny price. In the same vein, too many books will quite literally weigh you down and can be bought on campus bookshops or loaned from the library, if you get there in time. Thirdly, easy on the kitchen accessories! In all likelihood, your student flat will end up with 3 George Foreman grills, 2 rice cookers and 7 toasters, and anyway, Domino’s is always a phone call away! Finally, a non-exhaustive list of things that are seriously essential: • fancy dress (including school uniform, 80’s leg warmers, golf jumpers) • blankets that smell like home (for the Sunday hangover blues) • a laptop (4OD is your friend) • dry shampoo (2 words: shared showers) • Lemsip (Fresher’s flu is real) • a pen or two but most importantly... a welcoming smile and an open mind! @westendlife

Summer in the City City breaks in summertime are the perfect alternative to the more traditional beach or lounging round the pool holiday. Pick a city then explore its unique and individual charm. If you’re really lucky you may be able to fit in a couple of trips to different cities over the holidays packed full of different cultures, languages, traditions, architecture, food and beauty. All of which will give you so many wonderful memories. Packing for a city break doesn’t need to be stressful, like all packing, preparation is the key and choosing clothes that work well together is of primary importance. It’s a hardworking short break wardrobe that you’re aiming for. It’s got to travel well, and see you from morning to night, doing all sorts of things. Sightseeing (obviously) but then there’s lunch and dinner, shopping, exploring, perhaps cycling, certainly lots of walking and then the nightlife - a lot for one little case to cope with! As you’ll only have a carry on case (please don’t be tempted to do hold luggage) you will be forced into savvy packing, so here are some tips:

16 | West End Life – August/September 2016

Wear a lot travelling This means layer up! - make sure you wear your cover up cardigan or lightweight linen casual jacket over a shirt and t-shirt. Wear your jeans and your heaviest comfiest, stylish yet practical all round walking shoes and pack your lightweight sandals or flip flops.

Travel Essentials Your City break travel essentials should be loose, laid back, stylish clothes in quality fabrics and comfort should be high on your list allowing you to cope with a packed agenda. Style doesn’t go amiss either as you’ll be up against the super stylish European locals for whom dressing seems to come easy.

Brilliant Multitaskers The best multitasking clothes are going to have to cope with whatever you do from early morning till late at night so aim to pack a shirt (also good as a cover up) shorts, lightweight dress (suitable for day and night) jeans or casual trousers and a couple of interchangeable stylish tops. @westendlife


Monochrome palette Stick to a monochrome range of mix and match clothes when packing, so everything works well together. Be strict with yourself and don’t be tempted to throw in random things that can only be worn as a standalone outfit.

Bearing in mind your little case, try sleeping in a t shirt rather than taking pj’s roll up your underwear and keep your toiletries and cosmetics to the bare minimum -This is undoubtedly really hard but do remember that rather than having it confiscated at security for being too much or too heavy - just buy your shower gel, shampoo etc whenever you get there. Of course, you will also want to leave some room in your case for some city mementos.

Wherever you’re going and whatever you do this Summer - do it in style!

SCOTLAND’S BOAT SHOW 2016

By Jo Simms

The action isn’t just on the water; luxury names of the motoring world, Porsche, Tesla, Lamborghini and Morgan will have cars on show.

Get ready for the nation’s greatest show afloat as Kip Marina hosts Scotland’s Boat Show.

Pavilions line the marina at Inverkip. Since 1989 the show has developed into a celebration not just of boats but of lifestyles which appreciate the best on offer.

Over the weekend of 14-16 October Gavin McDonagh, managing director of Kip Marina, and his team will welcome thousands of people to see the best names in the boat world plus a host of onshore activities for all to enjoy.

But that doesn’t mean you have to spend thousands to enjoy the finer things in life. Try a box of chocolates made with loving skill by a leading Scottish chocolatier; a snack from one of the many artisan foodie trucks, or a fine malt whisky as well as the marina’s own Chartroom Restaurant.

The yachting world comes to buy boats and equipment; those exhibiting are a who’s-who of the marine services industries at what has now become the third biggest boat show in the UK after London and Southampton. It is the largest brokerage show in the UK. Brokers and manufacturers are showing powerboats, yachts, dinghies and other craft on display from prestigious manufacturers. Scotland’s Boat Show has also built a rock-solid reputation as the destination of choice for those seeking an unrivalled range of high quality pre-owned boats. ‘The price range is from about £500 to over £1million; the total value of boats for sale is approximately £15million,’ Gavin McDonagh said. Plus there are a wide range of companies showing and selling the latest trends in clothing and equipment.

24 | West End Life – August/September 2016

The Clyde Lifestyle Pavilion showcases Scottish craftsmen and women where you can find clothing, textiles, furniture, paintings and prints you’ll never see on the high street. The Scottish Food and Drink Pavilion, sponsored by West College Scotland and its students and staff, show cases the finest local foods available and this year the hospitality students will be helping renowned chef Nick Nairn, who will be presenting daily cookery demonstrations. So just wander round and soak up the atmosphere, and watch the demonstrations, the helicopter flights and on-water activities. After all, more than 16,000 visitors last year can’t be wrong!

then take the recipe home to cook for friends and family. It’s a great day out, on your own, with a friend, or even as a group.’

Nick Nairn opened his Cook School beside the beautiful Lake of Menteith, just an hour’s drive from Glasgow, back in 2000. Since then he has welcomed thousands of cooks through the doors; everyone from nervous first-timers to confident home cooks. Nick says, ‘People get a real kick out of a day at the Cook School, whether they’re a toast burner or a soufflé king. We help all cooks learn more, practise their skills and, most importantly, cook a delicious meal to eat over a civilised glass of wine with their fellow classmates,

The Cook School always offers a warm welcome. You use the superb facilities and cook with exceptional Scottish ingredients in the large teaching kitchen, before eating in the dining room overlooking the Cook School garden. All classes are hands-on, whether it’s a 3-hour session or full day. The type of food is up to you, simply head to the website and choose something you like the sound of, from curry, to Scottish specialities, Thai street food, Italian... There’s plenty of choice. Choose, too, between learning from one of the excellent chef tutors or a course with Nick himself. Nick’s heading to Scotland’s Boat Show at Kip Marina on 1416 October this year to show off his fine cooking skills doing demonstrations for visitors. ‘I’m thrilled to be at the boat show. I absolutely love boats,’ he says.

‘I even started my career in the Merchant Navy, and did my first TV series Wild Harvest sailing around the Scottish coast. I’ve had to cook many a meal at sea, though I think I’ll be on terra firma for these dems! I hope to see lots of you there; it should be a fun weekend.’ The Cook School team will also be at the show selling Gift Cards for the Cook School, as well as cooking kit and cook books. To book a class at either of the Nick Nairn Cook Schools (Port of Menteith, or Aberdeen), visit www.nicknairn.com or call 01877 389900. Classes from £49.

Are you thinking of extending your Home? think Dab Den Ltd. An interview with Katherine Byers, Dab Den Ltd the contemporary Construction Company that provides a cost from the start. Recently you won an award, what was this for? We were delighted that Dab Den Ltd recently won the BUILD 2016:- Most sustainable building company, and last year the Scottish home improvement awards 2015. Because we use the same details for each project we were able to value engineer the design, reduce the concrete is our foundations and maximise insulation. Our craftsmen are highly trained so this reduces wasted time, materials and, subsequently, the clients money whilst maximising the Architectural design

What does the future hold for Dab Den Ltd?

Who is Dab Den Ltd?

We are currently building our first Contemporary house in Aberdeenshire ready to Launch the new Dab Dwelling in 2017.

Myself and co-owner Kerr Byers started Dab Den Ltd in 2011. Now Dab Den Ltd is an award winning Architect led Construction company with offices based in Greenock and Aberdeenshire.

You advertise that you can give a fixed cost from the start, how do you do this? “We provide a full design and build service. As Architects we have been designing and building garden rooms and extensions for many years. Because we use the same products for each Dab Den project, we developed a formula so that we can accurately prepare an outline cost. Unlike the traditional route of having to pay to get the designs drawn up, then get local authority approval, and then send them out to tender before finding out the cost. At Dab Den we can provide an outline quotation before you have to pay for anything.

How does your process differ from other construction companies? We have architects leading the projects so you have your own personal Architect guiding you through the project and working closely with our skilled craftsmen onsite. We work as one team rather than separate Architect and contractor making the process run smoother.

Pinch, Feed & Weed It’s time to

By Kieran Gallagher

We have had a mixture of weather through late spring and early summer, with a hot spell followed by what is best described as ‘changeable’ ever since! One key difference between this year and last year, so far, is that air and soil temperatures have remained around the average for the time of year. Soil temperature makes an enormous difference to plants, with temperatures in double digits promoting healthy and vigorous growth.

would help fruits achieve ripeness earlier and this would mean more crops from fruit bearing plants. The intermittent sunshine can cause bedding plants to either become ‘leggy’ (too tall and uneven growth) or one sided. In most cases this can be overcome by pinching out the top growth on each stem. This will create a natural horizontal growth on the plant, in effect causing it to become bushier. One sided growth mainly occurs in bedding plants as they have a short, but very vigorous lifespan. It does occur in shrubs and trees as well where, unless you are working in containers, the only solution is considerate pruning. It is caused by either short and irregular periods of sunshine, when the plant grows slightly more on the side the sun hits, or if your garden faces east or west and only gets sunshine in the morning or late afternoon. Obviously, if you are working in containers then simply turn the container occasionally toward the sun. Where you have plants in the ground, pruning is the only real solution.

Last year at Cardwell Garden Centre we were inundated with customer questions about why were their bedding plants or tomatoes not growing as well as they usually do? The two simple answers to this were a lack of sunshine for developing flowers and ripening fruit and, just as importantly, there was not enough heat in the air or the soil to encourage the rapid growth needed. This year a little more sunshine

You should now be feeding your bedding plants with something that is high in potash or sulphate of potash. Potash will promote flowering over foliage growth and keep your bedding flowering for longer. If in doubt, tomato food on bedding plants once a week is fine. One species of plant that has enjoyed the mild and damp weather is weeds! Weedkillers can be used just now, but beware of treating on a showery day. Almost all weedkillers must have time to dry on the plant to be effective, otherwise the rain will deplete the strength of the treatment. Keep all pets away from treated areas until the

gloves (and eye protection and a mask if you can); don’t spray on windy days. Don’t eat, drink or smoke when using the chemicals and wash your hands carefully immediately after use. As with pets, keep kids away from chemicals and store them safely away from little hands and paws in a frost free and dark area. By following simple safety guidelines you can garden safely and healthily and get rid of those pesky weeds.

treatment is completely dry, at which point it will not harm animals. This is true of most modern chemicals, but not all, so check the label of your chemicals or ask your garden centre assistant for advice. And make sure you are using the right treatment for the right job as some treatments are not suitable for fruit, vegetables or herbs. The recent motion in the European Parliament to have Glyphosate banned from domestic use due to fears of it being carcinogenic have been put on hold until next year. Conflicting reports of its effects are difficult to read and do not give a conclusive answer. Here is my simple advice on the matter – all garden chemicals are dangerous if misused. They always have been, even though the treatments available to buy today are far less potent than their forbearers. Read the label on your treatments; do any opening or mixing in a well ventilated area or outside; wear

recipe overcooked) but take care not to burn the pan. When the meat is cooked, remove it from the pan and set it onto a warm plate to rest.

Sautéed Venison Medallions with Apples & Green Peppercorns Serves 4 Ingredients 4 x 140g loins of venison sunflower oil 20g unsalted butter freshly ground black pepper Maldon salt 2 Granny Smith Apples, peeled and cut into 10 wedges each 15g green peppercorns 30g unsalted butter 50g golden caster sugar 80ml dry white wine 100ml chicken and beef jus (or a reduced mix of chicken and beef stock) 2-3 drops red wine vinegar

Method Lightly season the venison then heat a frying pan over a medium flame and add a little sunflower oil. Sunflower oil can reach a higher heat than olive oil, so works best for pan-frying red meat. Sauté the meat in the oil until brown all over. Reduce the heat slightly and add the 20g of butter and roll the meat in the butter and oil mixture. Let the meat cook for just a few minutes to medium rare (the venison will be dry and tough if

Tip the fat from the pan into a dish, then return the pan to a medium heat and add the 30g of butter closely followed by the apples. Toss the apples in the pan until they colour slightly then add the sugar. Cook the sugar to a golden caramel then add the wine. Boil the pan vigorously to form a sauce, stirring in the chicken and beef jus and peppercorns as the wine has almost evaporated. Finish with two or three drops of red wine vinegar and set aside. The danger here is making jam in the pan and having the sauce set on the plate as your guests try to eat the dish, so have a little extra jus or stock handy to thin it while cooking and make sure it doesn’t get too thick. To serve, add any juices that have run from the resting meat to the sauce then put the venison into a hot oven for three minutes to warm through. Don’t overheat the meat or all the good work done in resting it will be undone. Slice the meat into thick slices and serve with the glazed apples alongside the meat and the sauce around. This goes well with a well-seasoned mash.
