Here are another ten great opportunities to prove yourself. As always seven out of ten is a great result! 1. What river flows over Victoria Falls? 2. Mr Watson, come here I want you.’ What’s special about those words? 3. Who wrote the original Mr Men books? 4. ‘Never in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few.’ That was Churchill’s tribute to whom? 5. Which pop star’s real name is George O Dowd? 6. Which actor played the first ever Doctor Who? 7. Name the actors who played the first ‘Magnificent Seven.’ 1 point for each. 8. Which member of the Royal family made a cameo appearance on the 40th anniversary episode of Coronation Street? 9. What do we call the game that the Americans call Tic Tac Toe? 10.

Lawn Keep mowing regularly unless there is a drought. Set the mower blade slightly higher than before so that if it becomes very hot the grass will not dry out so much. Only water any recently sown grass or new turf. If an existing lawn does go brown it will recover after the first rains.

Fruit and Vegetables If apple trees are still over crowded with fruit after the June drop then take out any blemished fruit and the central apple from each cluster. As soon as

Wildlife Top up bird feeders and tables regularly but avoid chunky food that could be taken back to fledglings and choke them and keep the bird bath topped up with fresh water. Plant marigolds around the vegetable garden to attract hoverflies and grow more plants that have single flowers rather then doubles as these seem to attract insects better. Don’t deadhead roses that produce hips as these will be a valuable food source later on in the season.

Looking Good This Month Delphinium - Tall growing stately flowers in many shades. Helianthus - Sun flower. Tallest growing flower with large heads. Nicotiana - Flowering tobacco. Large leaves with fragrant white flowers. Nymphaea - Water lilies. Good colour, shape and coverage of ponds. Roses - Climbers, ramblers, bush, shrub and patio. Good colour and scent. Solanum Crispum - Potato vine. Fast growing climber. Profuse lilac or white flowers. Verbena Bonariensis - Tall airy plant that you can see through with purple flowers atop.

T���K L CAL ��Y L CAL We’re really lucky... our local area is full of wonderful small businesses

There are heaps of reasons to buy from local companies Here are 5 big reasons for using your local businesses: 1. They know their customers Local businesses understand people in the area. They’re quick to react to what their customers want and are able to meet the changing needs of the local population. This means they can offer you relevant and interesting products and services rather than the larger, more commercial companies that generally provide the same things no matter where you live.

2. They create jobs Shops in our towns create jobs within the local community. By purchasing from these smaller businesses, you’re helping to grow employment opportunities which in turn, makes the area a better place to live and work.

3. The experience There’s nothing quite like the personal touch that comes with the customer service in a local shop. They get to know you and can offer products and services that best meet your needs. Plus, they have an authenticity that the bigger brands can’t usually match. What’s not to like?!

4. They’re better for the environment Local businesses often source their products locally, which helps to reduce their carbon footprint.

5. Great deals - you’ll be surprised! Don’t assume that chain stores have the best deals - local businesses can have competitive pricing that you might not expect. Before you hit Google, take the time to have a look around your area and see what’s on offer. Which local businesses do you love?

IMPONDERABLES... OR HOW TO DRIVE YOURSELF MAD WITH IMPOSSIBLE QUESTIONS! There are no end to the number of imponderables we come across in daily life, so we’ve put together a few questions most of us have asked ourselves from time to time.... are there really any answers? 1. Why doesn’t glue stick to the inside of the tube? 2. Why don’t you ever see the headline ‘Psychic wins lottery’? 3. Why is a bra singular and panties plural? 4. Why is a boxing ring always square? 5. Would a fly without wings be a walk? 6. How come a pizza gets to your house faster than an ambulance? 7. Why don’t they make the rest of the aeroplane out of the same materials they use for the black box? 8. Why does no-one say ‘It’s only a game’ when they’re winning? 9. Why do we wash bath towels. Aren’t we clean when we use them? 10. Why does mineral water that has ‘trickled through mountains for centuries’ have a sell-by date? 11. Why is it called ‘Alcoholics Anonymous’ when the first thing you have to do is stand up and say ‘My name is Bob and I’m an alcoholic? 12. Why do they lock petrol station toilets? Are they afraid someone might clean them?

13. Why does lemon juice contain a load of artificial ingredients but washing up liquid contains real lemons. 14. Why do people point at their wrist when they’re asking you the time? I don’t point at my crotch when I’m asking where the toilet is. 15. Why is the third hand on a watch called the second hand? 16. Why does your gynaecologist leave the room when you’re getting undressed? 17. Why do we leave thousands of pounds worth of car sitting on the drive and fill the garage with a load of rubbish? 18. Why do croutons come in airtight packaging. Aren’t they just stale bread to begin with? 19. Why is it that when someone tells you there are more than a billion stars in the universe you believe them but if they tell you paint is wet you have to touch it to make sure? 20. Why do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won’t miss a call from someone we didn’t want to talk to in the first place? If you actually do have answers to any of these you may just be sadder than me for asking the questions in the first place!

INSIDER SECRETS! 3 WAYS TO MEASURE THE SUCCESS OF YOUR PRINTED AD

Y

ou want to grow your business, so you’ve decided to place an ad in a local publication. But how will you know if the campaign has been successful? Only by knowing what works and what doesn’t will you be able to truly measure the impact of your ad. We’ve tapped into our years of experience to put together the following guide that will help you to create a measurable printed ad:

Tip #1

Here are a few ways to do this:

• Promote a particular service or product that you don’t really advertise elsewhere Your ad should include messaging • You could set up a bespoke phone that asks the consumer to perform an number to be used only for this ad action or provide a response. Use a powerful call to action that will prompt • Create a page on your website them to do something specific, such as specifically for Local Answer readers. Tailor the content of this page so that calling a number to redeem an offer. it’s in-line with the messaging in the Be sure to mention the benefit they’ll get from responding so they feel like it ad so that the customer journey flows well and is uninterrupted will be worthwhile! • Consider offering an exclusive Tip #2 Local Answer discount code that Create an ad unique to the Local the audience needs to quote. This Answer way, you know they’ve come to you Rather than using the same campaign through seeing the printed ad that you’re running elsewhere, making Tip #3 an ad that’s specific to the advertising Get your testing hat on magazine makes it easier to measure Don’t be afraid to brainstorm and and gives a more honest idea of how well it’s working for you. come up with a few different ad

Make sure it can actually be measured

concepts. Think about two or three variations of an ad and have a slight change in each version. We’d recommend only changing one aspect of each ad so that you can easily identify which element is effective. You can then run the ads in consecutive issues of an advertising magazine, like the Local Answer, and see which one achieved the most enquiries/sales.

Healthy Eating VEGETARIAN BAKED POTATO

P

otatoes are one of the best sources of starch, vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre. 100g provides 70 calories. They have hardly any fat (just 0.1g per 100g) and no cholesterol; they are also high in fibre so good for conditions such as constipation (you must eat the skin as well). The usual fillings for baked potatoes are butter, cheese, tuna mayonnaise etc which increase the fat content and make them less healthy. This recipe contains peppers, onions, garlic and tomatoes, which are all low in fat and full of nutrients. Olive oil is used instead of then. When they are soft, turn the heat up butter or margarine as it contains vitamins a bit and cook till slightly browned. Add and can help lower cholesterol. tomatoes and paprika and cook for another Recipe (serves 2) 5 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar, salt and 2 good sized baking potatoes, 1 red and one pepper and stir.

LIMITED EXCITEMENT SO FAR... LET'S HOPE THERE'S SOME TO COME!

W

ith the entire football world concentrating on the events around Europe with the UEFA tournament currently in full swing it’s not surprising that recruitment news from the Riverside is almost nonexistent. The odd tentative suggestions from the Middlesbrough Evening Gazette’s ‘Boro reporters tend to be fairly indicative of the lack of progress currently being achieved by the Bauser-led transfer team and we are all pretty aware that in most cases they are little more than journalistic fabrications. Should any of the forecasts to date prove correct then I apologise in advance for any doubts I may have cast on the accuracy of their predictions, but we have yet to be convinced. So, with little happening parochially, let’s look at what has so far been an interesting – though

not particularly stimulating - European tournament. As I write, England’s already guaranteed place in the last sixteen has been more than ratified after a comparatively comfortable 1-0 victory over the Czech Republic. That Scotland were sadly eliminated after their defeat to Croatia is perhaps a better indicator of the strength of England’s chances after, let’s face it, they were fortunate to hold the Scots to a draw in their Wembley clash. That it could – and probably would – have been so much different had John Stones put away the header that most strikers would have gleefully buried shows that at this level you really must put away your chances but the poor showing to date of Harry Kane doesn’t auger well for our immediate

It would be wonderful if the England team could have pulled off the minor miracle by then but on the evidence so far that’s highly doubtful. You can but hope, though to pray for an England win and then for ‘Boro promotion is probably pushing hope much too far! We can only wait and see! Let’s just pray we’re all actually doing it at the Riverside. Just can’t wait to get back!

Euros future. But that’s football and if everything went according to plan and the fancied teams always won, it certainly wouldn’t be the exciting spectacle it undoubtedly is. So far there is little doubt that France and Italy have been the two outstanding teams and coming up against them is going to be the real test. As far as the availability of the type of striker ‘Boro are looking for is concerned it’s going to be difficult to both find and attract players who will make the difference between mid table and a real challenge. What we certainly don’t need is another season of stress. And since this will probably be Neil Warnock’s last season in charge of a league football team let’s all sincerely hope he can finish off his sometimes glittering but often controversial career in real style.
