There Are Talent Shows, Good Talent Shows And Then There's 'The Voice.'

D

iscovery is a concept that has always fascinated man but as one of those people who have to have some sort of evidence before I spend some of my precious time investigating something that might turn out to be rubbish I’ve finally given ‘The Voice’ a try. Some of my friends are addicted to it and since - in general they’re quite intelligent people, I thought I’d investigate their enthusiasm. Switching on, I presumed I’d be watching the usual bunch of weird ‘Wanabees’ who think they can sing being judged by a few egotists who couldn’t imagine there would be anyone out there who was better than them..... I was so, so wrong! For starters, I can’t recall a single competitor in the first five or six weeks of the ‘blind’ auditions who didn’t actually have a great voice. I love music and so could see that while some of them might have chosen entirely the wrong song for their particular voice range, they could - given the right material - be brilliant. The judges, meanwhile, are a lovely bunch. The gorgeous Kylie Minogue, the hugely admired legend Sir Tom Jones, the rather quirky Will.i.am and the really likeable Ricky Wilson of the Kaiser Chiefs are all full of enthusiasm, empathy, knowledge and experience. If I had a voice - which sadly I don’t (deaf people won’t read my lips when I sing) I would be happy to have any one of

PAGE 4 | Local Answer - Issue 48

them coaching me. And just in case anyone else out there has had a similarly blinkered attitude to mine and hasn’t seen it before, can I explain that the ‘blind audition’ stage of the show has the four judges with their backs to the singer so they can’t be influenced by looks or movement. All they have to go by is ‘The Voice.’ If they think the person delivering the performance would be an asset to their personal team of twelve contestants they turn round. If more than one turns it is the contestant’s decision who he or she would prefer to have as their mentor. To try and pick a winner at this stage really would be impossible because the 48 candidates chosen to go through to the latter stages are all very good indeed and without doubt any one of them could win it. From this stage, of course, looks and movement will become much more of a factor and will obviously play quite a part in the popular vote. Perhaps that’s a sad reflection of modern musical popularity because even though the programme is called ‘The Voice’ that will regrettably (for some anyway) only play a small part in the final decision. That said, the show is really a high quality version of ‘X Factor’ or ‘Britain’s got Talent’ and the next few weeks are likely to be interesting, exciting and excellent entertainment. I wish I’d been converted much, much earlier!

LOCAL ANSWER

Humour

CAN ST ALBANS - OR ANYWHERE - REALLY BE THIS STUPID?

I

t’s a strange phenomenon that different areas of the country have traditionally become famous for a variety of defamatory traits. Yorkshire folk, for instance, are notorious for being Scotsmen with all the generosity taken out. Welsh people have been associated with a particularly unhealthy association with sheep, while Londoners (or let’s be honest, anybody south of Doncaster) are famous for their inhospitable ways and inability to communicate with their fellow man at the bus stop. We North Easterners, meanwhile, are a bit of a contradiction because everyone rightly associates us with a friendly attitude that makes all strangers feel welcome whether they actually are or not! A more recent discovery of the following (apparently true) little anecdotes, however, makes the whole concept considerably more parochial. On the following evidence St Albans in Hertfordshire must really be a strange place to live! See what you think. Example number 1 “My daughter and I went to the McDonald’s check-out to pay our bill and I gave the assistant a £5 note. Our total bill was £4.20, so I also handed her a 20 pence piece. She said, ‘You gave me too much money.’ I said, ‘Yes I know, but this way you can just give me £1 back.’ She sighed and went to get the Manager who asked me to repeat my request. PAGE 6 | Local Answer - Issue 48

I did so, and he handed me back the 20 pence and said ‘We’re sorry but we do not do that kind of thing.’ The clerk then proceeded to give me back 80 pence in change.” The moral of that story is ‘Don’t confuse the clerks at MacDonald’s in St Albans!! Example number 2 “We had to have the garage door repaired and the St Albans based ‘GARADOR’ repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a ‘large’ enough motor on the opener. I thought for a moment and said that we had the largest one ‘GARADOR’ made at that time - a 1/2 horsepower. He shook his head and said, ‘Lady, you need a 1/4 horsepower.’ I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4 and he said, ‘NOOO, it’s not. Four is larger than two..’ We haven’t used GARADOR repair since.” Example number 3 “I live in a semi-rural area. We recently had a new neighbour call the Highways Department to request the removal of the ‘DEER CROSSING’ sign from our road. The reason, he said, was that ‘Too many deer are being hit by cars on this stretch of road! I don’t think this is a good place for them to be crossing, anymore.” Story from Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.


LOCAL ANSWER Example number 4 “My daughter went to a local Kentucky Fried Chicken and ordered a Taco. She asked the person behind the counter for ‘minimal lettuce.’ He said he was sorry, but they only had Iceberg Lettuce.” From South Oxhey , Hertfordshire. Example number 5 “I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked, ‘Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?’ To which I replied, ‘If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?’ He smiled knowingly and nodded, ‘That’s why we ask.” Happened at Luton Airport Example number 6 “The traffic light on the corner buzzes when the lights turn red and it is safe to cross the road. I was crossing with an intellectually challenged friend of mine and she asked if

Nu

Window Solutions

I knew what the buzzer was for. I explained that it is a signal to tell blind people when the light is red. Appalled, she responded, ‘What on earth are blind people doing driving?!’ She is a Local County Council employee in St Albans , Hertfordshire. (In addition, she is NOT blonde).” Example number 7 “When my husband and I arrived at our local Ford dealer to pick up our car, we were told the keys had been locked in it. We went to the Service Department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the Driver’s door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door-handle and discovered that it was unlocked. ‘Hey,’ I announced to the Fitter/Mechanic, ‘it’s open!’ His reply: ‘I know. I already did that side.’ This was at the Ford dealership in St Albans , Hertfordshire.” At all costs, avoid St. Albans in particular or Hertfordshire in general!

Humour

Lovely Little Stories

W

e all think that in a world where 'alternative comedy' looks for unhealthy and degrading aspects of life as humour there is still room for a more gentle way of making people laugh. We think these are great examples and are certain that no-one could possibly be offended. We hope you enjoy them! A young couple moved into a lovely little house in the country and - thinking they would stick to the country theme, decided to call their house 'Apple Tree Cottage.' They had a lovely little sign engraved with their chosen name and hung it on the tree next to the front door. The next morning they found a note attached to the tree that said 'This be a siccymore.' An elderly couple were celebrating their sixtieth anniversary. Having married as childhood sweethearts they moved away to find a better standard of living but decided this would be the perfect time to go back and visit their early origins. On the first day they held hands and walked down to their old school. It wasn't locked so they entered and found the old desk they'd shared where Jerry had carved 'I love you, Sally.' It brought back so many lovely memories but when they left and walked back towards their hotel they were amazed to see a leather bag fall out of the back of a security van. Sally quickly picked it up and, not sure what to do with it, took it back to the hotel. There, she counted PAGE 10 | Local Answer - Issue 48

the money and found fifty thousand pounds! Jerry said 'We've got to give it back.' Sally said 'No, finders keepers.' She put the money back in the bag and hid it in their suitcase. Next day, two police officers were canvassing the neighbourhood looking for the money, and, entering the hotel began knocking doors. Reaching Jerry and Sally's room they asked whether either of them had seen a money bag fall from a security vehicle yesterday. Sally said 'No,' but Jerry, in a fit of guilt said, 'She's lying. She hid it in the suitcase.' Sally said, 'Don't believe him, he's getting senile.' One of the policemen turned to Jerry and said 'Tell us the story from the beginning.' Jerry said 'Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday .....' The first police officer turned to his partner and said, 'Bloody hell, I'm out of here!' Jim and Frank are quietly sitting in a boat fishing and drinking beer when suddenly Frank says, 'I think I'm going to divorce the wife - she hasn't spoken to me in over 2 months.' Jim took a long, slow sip of beer and said, "Better think it over ...women like that are hard to find." A man was walking along a beach when he came across a lamp partially buried in the sand. He picked it up and gave it a rub. A genie appeared and told him he'd been granted one wish. The man thinks for a moment and said, "I want to live forever."


LOCAL ANSWER "Sorry," said the genie, "I'm not allowed to grant eternal life." "OK, then," said the man, I want to die after a British government balances the budget, eliminates the debt and makes everybody happy with the health service." "You crafty old bugger," said the genie. Tony Blair and David Cameron somehow ended up at the same barber shop. As they sat there, each being worked on by a different barber, not a word was spoken. The two barbers were both afraid to start a conversation in case it turned to politics. As the barbers finished their shaves & trims, the one who had Blair in his chair reached for the aftershave. Blair was quick to stop him, jokingly saying, "No thanks, my wife Cherie will smell that and think I've been in a brothel." The second barber turned to Cameron and said, "How about you" Mr Cameron?" Cameron replied, "Go ahead, my wife doesn't know what the inside of a brothel smells like".

An old, retired man volunteered to entertain elderly patients in nursing homes and hospitals and on a visit to one local hospital in Middlesbrough he sang some songs accompanied by his portable keyboard. He also told some jokes that he thought were really funny and did a few little tap dances to entertain his audience. Once he'd finished he addressed the patients and told them he hoped they would all get better soon. An elderly gentleman sitting at the back said 'Yes. We all hope you do too!' Two old gentlemen were sitting in their normal seat in the park when one of the ladies from their retirement home ran past completely naked, doing a streak. One old man turned to the other and said 'Was that Mary that ran past?' 'Yep,' said the other. 'Well,' said the first, 'what the hell was she wearing?' 'Don't know,' said the other, 'but it sure as hell needed ironing.'

Car review

Peugeot 2008 Distinctive Styling, Great Economy And Lots Of Extras. The New Peugeot 2008 Feline Is The Cat's Whiskers And A Great Family Car.

P

eugeot's current success has combined increased sales on models like the RCZ coupe with accolades that include the 208 being acclaimed best Super-mini. That's a success that looks set to continue with the launch of the new 2008 model - an upgraded version of the 208 hatchback. Only marginally bigger than a super-mini, the car nevertheless has the looks and feel of a genuine SUV. With bold, swept-back headlamps, lots of chrome trim, rugged plastic body cladding, elevated ride height and a set of stylish, two-tone 17-inch alloy wheels it is SUV in everything except four wheel drive. It is also very much a family car with loads of internal space, a sizeable boot that's the biggest in its class, MPV versatility and very low super-mini running costs. Everything, in fact, that the family man would look for when buying a new car. Internal attractions include loads of high

PAGE 12 | Local Answer - Issue 48

gloss plastic, satin chrome features and blue ambient lighting, but more importantly the soft touch surfaces, touch-screen interface and clear and comprehensive instrumentation that give a lovely feeling of control. And while some of the detailing is a little complex those who have driven a 208 will feel comfortably familiar with the 2008 because the 208's dashboard has been carried over more or less unchanged. And nobody should be disappointed with the amount of standard kit on offer because this includes dual-zone climate control, touch-screen satellite navigation, automatic lights and wipers, cruise control and a panoramic glass roof. A traditional 60/40 split folding function also gives extra capacity when necessary, while economy is extremely impressive. The 1.6e-HDI engine is quiet and very smooth and we found that 53mpg is absolutely normal regardless of how you drive and should alleviate the need to drive around different


LOCAL ANSWER supermarket fuel centres to save the odd penny per litre. On a reasonably long run that will undoubtedly rise to 60mpg and for a family man that is a vital attribute! Despite that, its performance is genuinely impressive and speeds and acceleration are everything you would ever need in the somewhat restrictive British limits. It was particularly impressive in gear, racing from 50-70mph in sixth in nine seconds flat – 3.4 seconds up on the MINI. There's an impressive selection of four trim levels - Access+, Active, Allure and our choice, the Feline. They all feature air conditioning, refrigerated glove box, cruise control, central locking, radio/CD player, electric windows, heated mirrors and speed limiter. Higher models from Active upwards also offer DAB radio, USB connectivity and Bluetooth.

At £18,995, the Peugeot falls between the Skoda and MINI on price, yet it’s far better equipped as standard than these cars – and indeed most rivals in this class. Plus, it emits the least CO2 on test, at 103g/km, so it’s an attractive company car choice that makes car tax attractively low. And finally, as an alternative to small hatchbacks it has numerous advantages including Grip Control - a traction control system that copies the benefits of four wheel drive in dangerous conditions. Very, very stylish and a great buy for any family!

Mother’s Day

MOTHERS - WHAT WOULD WE DO WITHOUT THEM?

B

y the time Mothering Sunday arrives on March 30th we'll have all seen and heard every lovely sentiment that could possibly be applied to mothers and let's be honest, most of them deserve the accolades they receive on that very sentimental day. But just to show that not all women are angels we've put together some lovely stories about the female gender that show that more than anything else they are human and have the same range of foibles as the rest of us.......

"Marvin," she wrote to the second, "I am too old to travel so I stay at home all the time and never use the Mercedes. And the driver is so rude!" "Dearest Melvin," she wrote to her third son, "You were the only son to have the good sense to know what your mother likes. That chicken was delicious." 'Well,' said a mother to her daughter. "What did you learn at school on your first day?' 'Not enough,' said her daughter. ' I have to go back again tomorrow'

Three sons left home, went out on their own and prospered. Getting back together, they discussed the gifts they were able to give their elderly mother. The first said, "I built a big house for our mother." The second said," I sent her a Mercedes with a driver." The third smiled and said, "I've got you, both beat. You know how Mum enjoys the Bible, and you know she can't see very well. I sent her a brown parrot that can recite the entire Bible. It took 20 monks in a monastery 12 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute ÂŁ50,000 a year for 10 years, but it was worth it. Mum just has to name the chapter and verse, and the parrot will recite it." Soon afterwards, their mother sent out her letters of thanks: "Milton," she wrote to the first son, "The house you built is huge but I only live in one room yet I have to clean the whole house."

My two-year-old cousin scared us one summer by disappearing during our holiday at Centre Parks. More than a dozen relatives searched the forest and and everyone was relieved when we found Alex playing calmly in the woods. "Listen to me, Alex," his mother said sharply. "From now on when you want to go somewhere, you tell Mummy first, okay?" Alex thought about that for a moment and said, "alright then, Disney World.' "His mother had been expecting a baby for several months and a six-year-old boy kept telling his teacher all about the baby brother or sister that was expected at his house. One day his mother let the boy feel the movements of the unborn child. The six-year old was obviously impressed, but made no comment and suddenly stopped telling his teacher about the impending event. The

PAGE 18 | Local Answer - Issue 48


LOCAL ANSWER teacher finally sat the boy on her lap and said, "Tommy, whatever has become of that baby brother or sister you were expecting at home?" Tommy burst into tears and confessed, "I think Mummy ate it!" Fred, who is 32, wants to get married but is still single. 'Well what's tyhe matter?' asked his friend, 'Can't you find a woman who will make a good wife?" Fred replied, "Actually, I've found many women I wanted to marry, but when I bring them home to meet my parents, my mother doesn't like them." His friend thinks for a moment and says, "I've got the perfect solution, just find a girl who's just like your mother." A few months later they meet again and his friend says, "Did you find the perfect girl? Did your mother like her?"With a frown on his face, Fred answers, "Yes, I found the perfect girl. She was just like my mother. You were right, my mother liked her very much." wThe friend said, "Then what's the problem?" Fred replied, "My father doesn't like her." They'd only been married for a few weeks when the young wife said to her husband when he returned from work, "I have great news for you. Pretty soon, we're going to be three in this house instead of two." Her husband ran to her with a smile on his face and delight in his eyes. He was glowing with happiness and kissing his wife when she said, "I'm glad that you feel this way because tomorrow morning my mother's moving in with us." When Bob found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died, he decided he needed a woman to enjoy it with. So one evening he went to a singles bar where he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away. "I may look like just an ordinary man," he said as he walked up to her, "but in just a week or two my father will die, and I'll inherit 20 million dollars." Impressed, the woman went home with him that evening. Three days later, she became his stepmother.

It's true that girls are inclined to marry men like their fathers. That's why most mothers cry at their daughter's wedding. John invited his mother over for dinner. During the course of the meal, his mother couldn't help but notice how John and his roommate Julie looked at each other. She had long been suspicious of a relationship between the two and this only made her more curious. By the end of the evening she was convinced there was more between them than met the eye. Reading his mom's thoughts, John volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you Julie and I are just roommates." About a week later, Julie went to John saying, "Ever since your mother came to dinner I can't find my favourite silver serving spoon. You don't suppose she took it, do you?" John said, "Well, I doubt it, but I'll email her just to be sure." So he sat down and wrote: "Dear Mother, I'm not saying that you did take a silver spoon from my house and I'm not saying that you didn't' but the fact remains that one has been missing ever since you were here for dinner. Love, John." The next day, John received a response from his mother that read: "Dear Son, I'm not saying that you 'do' sleep with Julie, and I'm not saying that you 'don't' but the fact remains that if she were sleeping in her own bed she would have found it by now. Love, Mum." Advice from a mother to her daughter. Cook your man a fish and you feed him for a day. But teach your man to fish and you get rid of him for the whole weekend.

March Gardening Tips GARDEN MAINTENANCE

Frosts can still be a hazard during March, so keep vulnerable plants protected at night if frost is forecast. March winds are also notorious for their ferocity so check exposed plants are well

supported. Now is the time for a thorough spring clean; weed and dig over your borders incorporating as much organic matter as you can - those chilly winds will really help to dry out the soil. Mulch bare soil once you have done PAGE 22 | Local Answer - Issue 48

the work and remove moss and weeds from paths, terraces and driveways. They may be boring tasks but if you don’t get on top of the garden now (especially the weeds!) it will be a nightmare for the rest of the season. Mark out the shape of new beds and boarders with sand trickled from a bottle, remove the top layer of growing vegetation and dig the ground over, incorporating as much organic matter as possible. If you are making a bed in the lawn, remove the turf and stack it upside down somewhere out of the way - after a year or two it will rot down into fantastic compost. Alternatively chop it up and bury upside down in the planting hole a good spade’s depth down. Beware - if you just dig it in the buried grass will regrow. Clean and repair your garden tools, book the lawn mower in for a service and check garden furniture for any rot. When it is warm enough, treat sheds, fences and trellis with wood preservative; brushes and rollers are fine for most things, however a sprayer is well worth buying for tricky projects such as woven panels!


LOCAL ANSWER

PLANTS AND BULBS

Protect new spring shoots from slugs (a generous application of slug killer around hostas (even if they are not showing) now will help in the uneven battle on the horizon!). Plant summer flowering bulbs. Add some compost to the soil, a sprinkling of bonemeal and plant them slightly deeper than they were in the pot.

LANDSCAPES DRIVEWAY & PATIO SPECIALIST

Cut down perennials that have been left standing over winter, including grasses even if they are still looking good. Lift and divide overgrown clumps of perennials and split polyanthus plants once they have finished flowering. Hazel or birch twigs are great for the natural look, canes and pea netting are practical and unobtrusive and purpose made green plastic covered supports are easy and convenient.

 Driveways FROM DESIGN TO  Patios REALITY  Decking  Turfing  Full Garden Landscapes  General Maintenance Looking ahead to summer - buy young plants now for your hanging baskets and containers and pot them up so the moment the last frost is over. Sow hardy annuals such as calendula, cornflowers and annual poppies in drifts – clashing colours just don’t matter in a garden, but remember to plant taller plants behind shorter ones.

Recipe

Leek And Potato Soup - In Season, Fresh And Great For The Last Of The Winter's Dark, Cold Nights!

I

f, like me, you have a reasonably sized garden or allotment you will inevitably have a number of leeks still in the ground. They are undoubtedly at their best right now having survived the winter and been well frosted - a process that definitely adds to their flavour. This a great way to use them up because leek and potato soup is easy, inexpensive, nourishing and very tasty. If you don't have your own they are readily available in the supermarket - and reasonable priced too - so go ahead and enjoy one of late winter's nicest dishes. Ingredients: 50g unsalted butter : 500g leeks - white parts mostly, sliced : 3 sticks celery, finely chopped : 1 fennel bulb, finely chopped : Salt and freshly ground black pepper : 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped : 250g potatoes, peeled and chopped : 120ml dry white wine : 1 bay leaf and 2 sprigs thyme : 1 bunch parsley or just stalks : 4tbsp crème fraîche. For garnish : 200g leeks, white part only : Oil for deep frying : Method: Soup Melt the butter in a large, heavy pan on a low heat. Add the leeks, celery, fennel and a teaspoon of salt, then sweat the vegetables, stirring from time to time, for about 10 minutes without allowing them to colour. Add the garlic and potatoes and sweat for a couple of minutes more. Add the white wine, 1.5 litres of cold water, the bay leaf, thyme, parsley and a generous grinding of black pepper. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender (about 20 minutes). Discard the bay leaf and thyme twigs, purée the soup and return to the pan. Gently stir in the crème fraîche and adjust the seasoning. Keep hot but don't boil again once the cream has been added. Crisply fried leek garnish Cut the leeks into 7cm lengths, and slice these into very fine matchsticks. Heat a quantity of oil at least 2cm deep in a heavy saucepan and when it is hot, fry the leek until it is golden and crisp - about half a minute. Drain on kitchen paper and sprinkle lightly with salt. You can now serve the soup with a spoonful of the crispy leek on top. Delicious!

It Looks Like We've Blown It - Big Time!

W

hen Eric Paylor - the only man who matches Alistair Brownlee's optimism about 'Boro's chances -appears on Tees Radio and announces he thinks our hopes of making the play-offs have gone you know they pretty much have done. Eleven points behind sixth place is a lot to make up in the last fixteen games but how much better could it have been? Having alleviated many of the silly mistakes that the defence had been making, Karanka's team has suddenly hit a brick wall when it comes to scoring goals. Earlier in the season we had scored in virtually every game only to find that defensive errors cost us valuable points. Now we don't concede daft goals (apart from the odd needless penalty, Ben Gibson!) we can't score a goal for love nor money. What makes it really ironic is that we are now holding out hopes that Karanka's other January signing Lee Tomlin can come in and change it all even though he has almost as many red cards this season as he has goals. There is no doubt that Karanka has made a meaningful difference to the way 'Boro are now playing with the Blackburn performance showing just how good this team could be if it could have converted a couple of the numerous chances created that day. His comments after the Watford game, however, suggest he has more or less come to a few conclusions about the deficiencies of some of his players and it looks as if he'll be monitoring their response to his comments over the next couple of months so that big PAGE 28 | Local Answer - Issue 48

changes can be made in the summer. That said, the financial situation and the apparent unattractiveness of Teesside to potential targets isn't going to make that an easy job. But, as a 'Boro fan of many, many years it wouldn't be practical to give up all hope just yet. We've been proved wrong many times in the past so I'm going to summon up all the optimism I can muster and say that another run of five or six victories over the next five or six games could once again change the whole complexion of the season. For that to happen we are going to have to start scoring goals. Danny Graham has yet to have even a modicum of support up front so his first couple of appearances have been a real waste of any potential he has. Grant Leadbitter isn't comfortable in the role he's been asked to play and has on most occasions left Graham isolated. From what we hear from the training ground, however, Tomlin playing in behind Graham and allowing Leadbitter to return to his more defensive role could be the answer. We can only wait and see. That our next opponents at the time of writing will be Leeds United led by the man we desperately tried to sign in the summer - 22 goal Ross McCormack - won't make it easy to begin the desired winning run. How much better would our season have been if we'd offered proper money for him! No good looking back, though. For now the next month is absolutely vital and during that time we can only watch, wait, hope and pray!
