“SENIOR” 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.


KVHS WINS IMPROV TOURNAMENT For the second time in as many years, Kennebecasis Valley High School will represent the New Brunswick-PEI region at the National Tournament of the Canadian Improv Games, which takes place from April 15-19 in Ottawa at the National Arts Center. To qualify, the eight-student team first had to compete in a Zone tournament, which for KVHS took place in Fredericton at FHS as part of the NB West division. Other Zones took place at Bernice McNaughton High School (NB East) and Bluefield High School (PEI). The winner of each Zone was granted a spot in the Regional Finals. The top five teams besides the winners, ranked by score from across all Zone tournaments, were given a second chance the night before the Finals in a Wildcard competition. The top two teams from this night would join the three Zone winners for a fiveteam, winner-takes-all Final. KVHS submitted two teams into competition this season, “KV Blue” and “KV White”. Last season, the KV Blue

team won the Region tournament and moved on to compete at the Nationals. At the NB West Zone tournament on January 31, KV White came in sixth and KV Blue came in second. For the White Team, the competition was over, but the Blue Team had scored high enough to qualify for the Wildcard night three weeks later in Moncton at Théâtre l’Escaouette. Determined to make up for the second place finish at Zones, KV Blue put in as much practice as possible in preparation for the Regional tournament. They won the Wildcard competition on Friday, February 21, achieving their highest scores this season. They bettered themselves yet again with a decisive finish at the Finals on Saturday, February 22, outscoring Bluefield High School, Riverview High School, and two teams from Woodstock High School. The KV Blue team now sets its sights on the National Tournament, joining 19 other regional-winning teams from across Canada. KVHS is looking to not only improve on their standings from last year, but also to make history by being the first Atlantic Canadian team to finish in the top five. 2671

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.

COMMUNITY VOLUNTEER TAX PROGRAM The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) assists thousands of low-income Canadians each year to prepare and submit current or prior year returns. Volunteers use CRA-approved software and can submit current year returns directly over the Internet (older returns have to be printed and mailed). The program is available free of charge to single taxpayers with income under $30,000, or couples under $40,000. Volunteers do not accept returns for those who are self-employed, in bankruptcy proceedings, or just deceased. This year’s clinic will again be held at the same location on Tuesdays from 9:00am-12:00noon and 1:00-3:00pm March 25 and each Tuesday in April. No appointments are necessary; service is on a first-come first-served basis. Clients may, if they wish, fill in an information sheet and leave their returns for completion later (normally by the next week). For a full listing of other clinics in the area (Hampton - Grand Bay), or for further information on the Volunteer Program, visit: cra-arc.gc.ca, or call tollfree 1-855-516-4405 for the Saint John area coordinator of the program. 2654

ROTHESAY REGIONAL POLICE NEWS “Sexting”, More than Meets the Eye: Police throughout the country are currently investigating teens and tweens for sending nude or provocative images of themselves to others. With so many of the youth carrying cell phones today it is a real concern for both police and parents. This phenomenon is known as “Sexting”. “Sexting” is defined as creating and exchanging nude or provocative sexual images of oneself using a cell phones’ built in digital camera. This is often done by teenagers and tweens. Teens are confused or conflicted about sending/ posting sexually suggestive content but will often do it anyways due to peer pressure. Most teens who send these messages are assuming that the photos will remain only with the person to whom they send it to. Teens have a sense that this is wrong and know that it could cause problems, but do they know that it is legally wrong? According to the Criminal Code of Canada, s. 163.1 (3) makes it illegal to produce and distribute child pornography. “Sexting” may be considered a crime if the persons portrayed are minors. The Criminal Code of Canada defines child pornography as: “A photographic, film, video or other visual representation, whether or not it was made by electronic or mechanical means, that shows a person who is or is depicted as being under the age of 18 years.” This is becoming a widespread problem in middle and high schools. Many of these youth are not aware that this is a crime. “Sexting” is a crime. It is producing and distributing child pornography, even if it is their own body they are photographing. A great majority of the young people have no idea that their “sexting” is technically child pornography. Police, schools and parents need to educate youth about the dangers and potential legal consequences of “sexting”. “Sexting” Safety Tips: Talk to your kids about “sexting”; Explain the consequences of “sexting”; Make sure your kids understand that photos that are sent over the internet or on their cell phones are not truly private or anonymous; Know who your kids are communicating with on the internet and with their cell phones.

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

by Colin Sifton

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 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

Up, Up & Away by Ellen Tucker River Cruise Line Differences – Be Careful: River cruises in Europe are so popular that the prime dates in September and October sell out almost a year in advance. So why are they so popular? I can sum it up in one word, “comfort”. 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.

Weatherize Your Windows ($25-$40/Window) A quick and more affordable solution to new windows is to weatherize your old ones. Go to your favourite hardware store and ask them about winterizing your windows. The kits are inexpensive and come with everything you need.

Set your thermostat to start warming up an hour before you expect to wake up or get home, and let the temperature drop down while you’re asleep and when you’re away from home. Don’t freeze the pipes though! Energy-Efficient Windows (Prices vary on size) If you have old windows, you could literally be throwing money out the window! Or, letting it leak out around the frames.

Adding a deck to your home can be a great way to increase the value of your house and get more enjoyment out of it as well. There’s a few things to consider if you’re going to be adding a deck to your house. The first and most obvious being size and purpose. If you’re just looking for somewhere to relax, read a book, and enjoy a coffee in the morning you’ll need much less space than you would if you’re looking to host BBQ’s and get togethers.

Get some nice, fresh spring air circulating through your house and then change the filters that have been catching the dust from the winter’s re-circulated air.


The next thing to consider is positioning, Will the deck be in the shade in the morning, the afternoon, or not at all. Depending on which direction your house faces and where you plan to put your deck, you may not be enjoying coffee with the sunrise. If you’re having someone build the deck for you, ask about having a deck box installed for kids toys, or outdoor items; a built-in bench along one side for extra seating, and what kind of rails and railing you want your deck to have. If you don’t have room for a deck to be attached to your house, maybe a gazebo is the right choice for you to get out and enjoy some summer sun and have a place to enjoy a coffee or BBQ.

Kitchen and bathrooms are the two most commonly renovated rooms in your house, but that doesn’t mean you’ll want to have to do it more than once. Spend some time leafing through home magazines, browsing the internet, and looking through the aisle at your local hardware store, to find what’s right for you. If there’s something that irritates you about your current kitchen or bathroom find out how to eliminate that problem when you re-model. There are a number of gadgets that can be built in to eliminate common problems and save time, like a pull-out cutting board with a pull-out garbage can below it. This makes cleaning up your scraps quicker and easier than you would have thought possible. When you’re renovating your bathroom, think about how long you plan to be in your home. If you plan to enjoy your golden years there, it might be a good idea to install certain need additions now to help your reduced mobility later.

LISTEN IN by Jeff liberty The Sweet Sound of Freedom So I was sitting at my desk sort of organizing my week’s work, while I wasted a bit of time on Facebook. Being trapped on Facebook at times can be a paralyzing exercise where time disappears, it’s a black hole where you remain soulless until you’re liberated by its death grip. All of a sudden I see a post about a new song entitled “Freedom” by a local singer/ songwriter Gordi Munro. I’m obviously drawn to the Title “Freedom” for obvious reasons. (See my Surname) Curiosity had me click on the link to have a listen. I am finally (for who knows how long?) relieved of Facebook’s spell! The song starts off soft and sparse, with a lone piano followed by the smooth, rich voice of Gordi, as it seamlessly glides over top the instrumentation igniting a burst of warm sunshine pushing the dark clouds away. It’s a powerful, beautiful and uplifting piece of music! It reminds me in voice and feel of the late/great Ray Charles' interpretation of his hit “Georgia on My Mind” (From the 1960 album; The Genius Hits the Road) that was written

in 1930 by Hoagy Carmichael and Stuart Gorrell. With a smattering and spirit reminiscent of the 1982 Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes duet “Up Where We Belong” from the soundtrack for the movie “An Officer and a Gentleman”. I contact Gordi and set up a time to meet up and have a chat about the song. I make my way to the City Market where I stop for lunch at Slocum & Ferris (love that place!) and wait for Gordi. We hit it off, instantly mentioning mutual people we know in the biz. I express my enthusiasm for the song and its universal message. “Freedom is whatever you want it to be”, Gordi says. He tells me that song was written and recorded in just one fluid take, without any predetermined thought to either music or lyrics.” My writing partner, Armand AJ Dionne Jr., wanted to test out his new microphone.” Gordi laughs in explaining how they initiated the track. After just under three minutes of inspiration and spontaneity, the song “Freedom” was born! Gordi grew up in Halifax and his heritage harks back to that of the early Africans

and Mi'kmaq First Nations. Gordi refers to himself as “Africadian.” This terminology was created by Canadian poet and playwright George Elliott Clarke (check out Wikipedia). “I came to the Saint John area to do some promotional stuff with a friend”, Gordi responded when asked how he came to move to our fair community. Gordi is currently working on his third album, “Time is the Healer”, while promoting the new single “Freedom”. The song is also in the CBC Searchlight contest so you can help out Gordi by voting for the song. All while supporting great independent music from New Brunswick. Find Gordi online at gordimonro. com. 0041 Jeff Liberty has been in the music business for over 20 years. Listen to his show “Take Liberty” on CBC 91.3 FM and follow him on twitter @jlibertyartists.

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

18 The Valley Viewer

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 off as

by Caleb burns 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. 00046

The Only Fun The only fun is a boy’s fun With or without a care Who cares if the days go flying by He always has one to spare. The world is a young man’s apple, This is so very true; And when he’s offered one thing, He always yearns for two. I mean these things I say For he thinks he owns the world; And it’s so true - the world is his I know - ‘cause I was a boy one day.

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 Debbie Hickey is the owner & president of Ossekeag Publishing. She is passionate about Ossekeag’s mission to connect communities and people.
