Last year I passed a birthday milestone that by every measurement known to me, qualifies me as a “Senior”. But somehow, that term just doesn’t seem suited to who I am. Yes, I am a senior member of Ossekeag Publishing. Yes, I am the senior IT person at Ossekeag Publishing. But... I have no concept of what retirement is about. I have no interest in sitting down and playing bingo. I have no idea even of what I am going to be when I grow up. I have no reason to even want to grow up. Life is grand just the way it is. Life is too busy with finalizing the redesign of our publications and the launch of a whole new Ossekeag venture to even think about picking up my knitting needles and yarn. Throw in a hundred years of work to restore our Acadian Forest and what I really need are more chainsaws, tractors, logging equipment and have absolutely no interest or time to be a senior. Just last night, “The Kid Who Lives Here With No Bedroom” challenged me to an Xbox foot race. Now at eight years old, she is a very energetic kid, but by the time I crossed the finish line ahead of her... she was covered in my dust. So what senior gets a kick out of out racing an eight year old?? Only one who has never matured or grown up!! Now to be fair, she did beat me in the soccer kick, lost in the javelin throw, beat me in bowling, lost in table tennis and surprisingly beat me in the deciding event, boxing. But it must of been a lucky punch, because I know that I can take this kid!!

So I am now setting up “The Immature Seniors Club”. It is a special club for people who can’t or won’t grow up or grow old. Yes, having a few aches and pains is okay. Yes, missing some hair is okay. Wrinkles... sure, no problem. But, you must have a real zest for life. Whatever limitations you have, can and will be overcome. Your horizons are far, far off and you live like you will still be around for another hundred years. Sure, we can admit to our mortality. We realize that we are one clogged artery away from being dead. We realize that wills and other planning needs to take place for the time when we aren't around, but then, we forget all that stuff and get on with doing stuff that is fresh, challenging and worth living for. Membership is totally free as long as long as your maturity index approximates that of elementary school. Sign up today!! 0001

Mike Completed his MBA in 1997, and has been working on a practical PhD since his wife Debbie and he started Ossekeag Publishing in 2000. He is also doing a practical degree in Restoring the Acadian Forest with a tractor and chainsaw. When Mike does come out of the trees he heads up Ossekeag’s fledgling IT department.

LISTEN IN by Jeff Liberty The Poet and the Songbird Slamming and Singing with Clyde A Wray and Debbie Adshade: Last week, I met up with poet extraordinaire Clyde A Wray and songwriter Debbie Adshade at Wray’s uptown haunt, the Magnolia Café, to talk about their work together and life over cappuccinos and my regular green tea and honey. Adshade is actually a nearby neighbour of mine on the Peninsula. I have been fascinated about both these artists as individuals for years now. When I heard they were collaborating, I knew I needed to explore this partnership further. Debbie tells me they first collaborated in the spring of 2011. “We were Facebook friends first”, Debbie says with a laugh. “I gave a reading and Debbie came out and asked if I wanted to do something together”, Clyde continued. Their first collaborative effort was “Between the Dark and the Light". They then followed this up with "Mood Swings". Debbie explains it as “a weaving of spoken word and song”. Throughout our lengthy

conversation, I learn that the process seems to be very much a collaborative effort with the music, lyrical singing and poetry coming together in a very natural and fluid manner. “There is no ego involved; we let the work take over”, Clyde says in expressing their approach. “It is all about the A-ha! (Eureka) moments”! Clyde adds in regard to finding what sounds and seems right for the pair. The duo plays off each other seamlessly, with Clyde’s stirring poetry in a dramatic delivery with a weighty and rich voice I can only liken to the great American actor, James Earl Jones. Debbie, in contrast, sings like an earth-bound angel, playing guitar while she sways back and forth, evoking something between Judy Collins and Joni Mitchell. A show that will captivate you with a journey that is worth the ride. I urge all lovers of song and poetry to take in one of their performances. Both Debbie and Clyde keep a busy individual schedule and work load as well. They both have fascinating projects

on the horizon. Clyde just finished two big productions, where he wears many creative hats in making these projects a success. Debbie’s work with Clyde Wray has also led to her most recent endeavour,”NB Poets”. Debbie has just received a NB Arts Creation Grant to compose 12 songs inspired by New Brunswick Poets. I’m looking forward to that release! To stay in the know, you can find them both on Facebook, YouTube, as well at (for Debbie) and 0041

ASk ThE ChEF Colin Sifton from Holly’s Restaurant and Catering with the answer to a great question about spices. I often get asked the question of what herbs you should have on hand at home? It is a hard thing to answer. Each person is very different and their palette is as well. We have certain rules that we use when first starting to cook, but then after playing with the different flavours we come up with what pleases us. The four most common herbs that you should find in most kitchens are; basil, thyme, rosemary and oregano. Some are best when fresh and others are easier to control when dried. Basil is always better fresh. I use it mainly in vegetable pasta sauces, some salads and is the main ingredient in pesto. Dried basil is alright, but you will find the flavour not as strong and a little more sweet than fresh. Thyme is good both dried or fresh. Fresh is not as strong as dried. I use thyme with poultry, in salad dressings and flavouring soups. There are many different varieties

of thyme so if you do not like one, try a different one. Rosemary is always better fresh than dried. It has a better flavour and is not as hard. I use rosemary with beef, lamb, game meat, in brown sauces, in salad dressing and in marinades. A flavour that is hard to miss, rosemary in mushroom soup just seems to complete it. Oregano is an herb that is always better dried than fresh. The only reason I say that is because fresh oregano is hard to control, where dried is very easy to control. I use oregano in Mediterranean cooking, pasta sauces, salad dressing and many marinades. Spaghetti sauce in my opinion should only be made with oregano and bay leaf. Other things I wanted to mention is when using herbs, keep it simple. Don’t just throw different herbs in a sauce in hopes that it will taste good because it will not. All the herbs have different aromatic flavours and very distinctive in flavour. By adding too much will confuse your palette. One taste may be good, but after

by Colin sifton a few more bites you will be turned off and your meal will go to waste. Another great thing about herbs is that some will keep bugs away. Lavender, lemon balm, rosemary and other herbs are often deterrents to different bugs, mosquitos, flies and spiders. Having these herbs fresh in your home or in your yard can keep these pests away. 0040

gET FRESh WITh FooD Healing Psoriasis with Food: We all know someone who suffers from psoriasis, which is a disease that causes dry, scaly patches all over the body which usually itch. Much of what I write is also true about Eczema. I have read about sufferers who have every aspect of their lives influenced by the disease and have even become suicidal. Having dry, flakey, lizard-like skin on exposed parts of your body can take away our confidence to be in public and affect our personal relationships. Since Psoriasis can also cause inflammation in the joints, many sufferers also have Psoriatic Arthritis. According to the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, the incidence of Psoriasis varies in different regions of the world, affecting about 1% of the US adult population, contrasted with 8.5% of the adult Norwegian population. Many studies have found Psoriasis to have a genetic predisposition. Since both my father and his father developed the disease in their 50's, this subject is of great interest to me. Many medical professionals will tell you that there is no cure for Psoriasis and most prescribe cortisone cream to manage the

disease. The medical consensus seems to be that cortisone should not be relied on long term because of the potential side effects. Cortisone thins your skin and suppresses your immune system. After years of use, your skin can become so thin that the cortisone can be absorbed into your bloodstream. I have read conflicting sources that claim cortisone is perfectly safe if used in moderation, while others, such as the Mayo Clinic, warn of side effects with long term use. From personal experience, I can tell you that Psoriasis does not have to continue to cause pain for so many people. When my father developed Psoriasis, he certainly was not going to settle with cortisone cream for the rest of his life. His research for a cure turned up the work of Dr. John Pagano, who is convinced that "psoriasis is the external manifestation for the body's attempt to throw off internal toxins." Pagano has found that his elimination diet can identify which foods are causing the disease. There are some foods that are common causes such as junk food, vegetables of the nightshade family

by Dave Wolpin

(peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, potatoes), saturated fats, shellfish and a handful more. After watching my father's experience, I cannot say the diet is easy. Cooking was tough, his Psoriasis became worse at times; however, after over eight months his hard work seemed to all-of-a-sudden pay off. His Psoriasis went from being bad to completely gone. As my dad added foods back into his diet, brief flare-ups indicated which foods he should avoid. I know there are sufferers out there that would do anything for clear skin and I encourage you to Google search Dr. Pagano. Feel free to talk to me in the store and I can share more of what I know. 0039 Dave Wolpin is the owner of Kredl’s Corner Market in Hampton and has a deep passion for healthy eating and food awareness.

very time we have a long period with power outages during the winter I hear horror stories of how people maintained the heat in their homes. From using construction heaters to using barbeques inside, I have heard pretty much everything that people have tried to use to heat or cook during a power outage.

using a fuel burning appliance for anything other than the manufacturer’s intended purpose, you are taking a huge risk, as they all produce carbon monoxide. When I am talking about a “fuel burning appliance” I am talking about anything other than electric fuel. So, wood, propane, oil and gas appliances are all considered fuel fired appliances. Throughout this article I’m going to talk about the building code requirements and my own recommendations. Please keep in mind that the code is a minimum standard, which means that it is the least that must be done. When I am talking about recommendations, it is what I would do in my own home. Finally, it is important that you check with your local building official to verify

that there are no local amendments to the code or differing interpretations to the code requirements before you perform any work. Smoke alarms are probably the best bang for your buck when it comes to fire safety in your home and should be replaced every ten years. The building code currently requires a smoke alarm installed on every s t o r e y and within 15 feet of every bedroom door (you can use one alarm to satisfy both requirements). The smoke alarms must also be interconnected, meaning that if one alarm goes off, so do all the others. In the next version of the building code smoke alarms will be required inside bedrooms as well. This is because locating the alarm in the bedroom wakes people about 45 seconds earlier than the unit outside the bedroom door, and

Have an evacuation plan ready for an emergency. Decide where you will meet and rehearse multiple routes out of the house. Go over your plan at least once a month.

since you typically have an average of 3 minutes to escape your home after the alarm sounds, that 45 seconds is a big deal. If you have smoke alarms, but they are not interconnected you could replace them with units that are wirelessly interconnected to save you from having to run wires all through your house and still satisfy the code when your existing smoke alarms need to be replaced. Most people don’t know there are actually two different kinds of smoke alarms; ionisation and photoelectric. Ionisation alarms are great at detecting flaming fires, where photoelectric alarms are good at detecting smouldering fires. Which type should you have in your home? Both, but if you can only have one, ionisation is your best bet because 93% of home fires are flaming. Also, If your smoke alarm goes off a lot when you are cooking it is likely an ionisation type and you could replace it with a photoelectric type to reduce nuisance alarms. All fuel fired appliances produce carbon monoxide, and should be vented to the outside. Unlike smoke, carbon monoxide is an invisible, tasteless and odorless gas that is poisonous. Even when you are installing a fuel burning appliance that is designed for installation in your home, a carbon monoxide alarm is required (and if you have an attached garage). The carbon monoxide alarm must be installed within 15 feet of all bedroom doors (just like a smoke alarm). If you are wondering if your house has a carbon monoxide alarm the first place to check is your smoke alarm. If your smoke alarm is also a carbon monoxide alarm it will say so right on the outside of the unit. If you just have a smoke alarm you can either switch out the existing unit for a dual unit or you can also get a carbon monoxide alarm that plugs into an outlet. Either units are commonly available at all home improvement stores.

From the Archives Sussex Agricultural Museum One Lung Engines - A Revolution in Power Near the turn of the last century one lung engines became a viable form of power used on farms. When horsepower wasn’t enough or wasn’t available one lung engines were used to provide mechanical energy to farm tools. Everything from butter churns, draw saws, and water pumps could be connected to a one lung engine through belts, gears, and shafts. One lung engines, are also commonly known as ‘hit-and-miss’ engines because of how they ran. Unlike modern engines that run smooth and consistently, one lung engines only fired when the speed dropped below a certain point. The engine’s heavy flywheels keep the engine spinning between firing cycles. This resulted in a distinctive sound of “POP, whoosh, whoosh, whoosh, POP” while the engine was running. Backfires were common but for their time these engines were incredibly powerful. They could run gasoline, kerosene, or diesel. Some people would start the engine with gasoline and

switch to the cheaper kerosene or diesel once the engine was running. Amanco produced a 2½ HP engine that they called a “Hired Man”. Using one lung engines allowed farmers to accomplish more work in shorter periods of time. They ushered in a new era of how work was performed on a farm. In the 1930’s their popularity began to die

by Caleb Burns off as newer, lighter, more reliable engines began to hit the market. By the 1940’s production of one lung engines virtually ceased altogether. But, if you want to see one you can always visit the Sussex Agricultural Museum, they have a few tucked away with other treasures from the past. If you go during harvest days you might even get to hear one run. 0046

SUSSEX TOASTMASTERS An Activity That Improves Your Leadership And Public Speaking Skills: try something new this season and visit Sussex Toastmasters, a club where you “learnby-doing” and where men and women hone their leadership and speaking skills in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere. There is no instructor in a toastmasters club; instead, members conduct the meetings. A typical meeting is broken into three areas: 1. Prepared speeches, where members work in a communication program manual that has a series of 10 speaking assignments designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking. 2. Evaluations, which are the cornerstone of Toastmasters and afford the speaker immediate feedback on what members liked and identifies areas for improvement. 3. Impromptu talks or “thinking on your feet” where a member responds to various topics. Toastmaster members have the opportunity to serve as officers in various leadership roles and learn parliamentary procedure. Best of all, in Toastmasters, you can go at your own pace. Meetings are held every other Wednesday evening

at 7:00pm at the Sussex Middle School library. For more information call Faith McMillan at 433-5227 or check out our website at: G31

Without question, the ease of leisurely sailing to many of the iconic cities of Europe, through inspiring scenery whilst enjoying delicious cuisine of the region in luxurious accommodations is the major factor. All that along with the fact the long ship carry only 120 to about 180 passengers. There are no crowds, no long buffet lines, it’s all easy. Each stop brings you into a city or town and there are informative excursions offered to allow you to become familiar with the history and culture of each place. And guess what, these excursions are free! It’s good to do an excursion in the morning, become familiar with the lay of the land and then go exploring on your own in the afternoon. All the river cruise lines are good but there are differences of which you should be aware before you choose the one for you. It’s not as easy as just comparing

the pricing, because what’s included varies. When you use the counsel of a professional travel consultant who is familiar with all the lines, that consultant can sum up the pros and cons of each. You can then make an informed decision as to what one is right for you. Some lines include everything, all beverages, all gratuities both to local tour guides and the shipboard gratuities. Some even include unique dining experiences on land like one with a Prince at his castle on Tauck. Some lines are focused on great cuisine and even include lunch at the restaurant of renowned chef, Paul Bocuse in Lyon like A-Rosa. Lunch at this Michelin 3 star restaurant would set you back at least $300 per person and it’s included. The other factor to consider is the size of the rooms onboard. Some are much smaller than others, but I will say they are all very comfortable and well-designed. As to what to choose for cabin position on the ship, it depends on you. The least expensive cabins are on the lowest deck and sometime when ballast is added to

lower the ship for going under bridges, part of the window may actually be underwater. If that is not a bother to you, then those rooms are fine. Remember you spend very little time in the room, you’ll be outside as much as possible watching the scenery and enjoying the company of fellow guests. Another consideration is the layout of the ship. If you like al fresco dining, make sure you chose a line that offers it. Otherwise all your meals must be taken inside. If you like to have the use of bicycles so you can go on guided cycling excursions or even explore on your own, make sure the line you choose offers complimentary bicycles. I’ve only touched on some of the differences, so before you make that big decision make sure you have all the facts. Happy travelling, Ellen Tucker 0043

“Your Community Connection ”

MuSINgS by Debbie Hickey PRIVACY? There is lots of discussion, articles written and conversation around the massive “sharing” of ourselves that is happening more and more as we live in virtual worlds of Facebook, text messaging, tweets, Pinterest and on and on and on. I personally have no particular desire to be that attached to any electronic device, nor do I feel a need to know how often you have been to the bathroom or how many times your kid threw up. To the contrary, it disturbs me to see so many people engaged with their devices and ignoring the people beside them. Do they really feel the need to be that “in the know” about their friends’ lives? But then I realized, we may have thought we had considerable privacy in our lives in the old days of B.E. (Before Electronics), but did we really? I recall one lovely blue-sky summer day when I had a car pull into my driveway to ask me a strange question. . . “Do you mind if I take some photos of your clothes on the line?” Turns out this individual was taking a photography course, so sure, no problem. But when you think about it, you can learn a lot about someone from their clothesline. Married (or at least cohabitating), kids (including gender and approximate ages), work (office attire or jeans), sports played, favourite colours, how often you shower (how many towels). And don’t even let yourself consider what can be gleaned from the nightwear you display (pj’s or nighties, flannel or sheer, NOTHING!). All that just from your clothesline.

Then there was the infamous “party line”. For those who missed that, there were numerous families who shared one phone line, although each had a distinct “ring”. Think of it as extensions of your landline, but each extension was in a different house and had its own ringtone. And like any household extension, anyone who picked up another phone while you are engaged in a “private” conversation could listen in to your conversation undetected. Or at least until the dog barked or a door slammed when the kids came in from playing outdoors (yeah, we did that then). It appears privacy was actually more illusion than reality. Like drawing the curtain, but the room lights are blazing and anyone on the street can see right in. Perhaps the real difference is not that we have less privacy than in my long ago youth, but just that today people simply don’t bother drawing the curtain. “A new father quickly learns that his child invariably comes to the bathroom at precisely the times when he's in there, as if he needed company. The only way for this father to be certain of bathroom privacy is to shave at the gas station.” ~ Bill Cosby. 0002
