Hello and welcome to the April issue of PALS Magazine. I am sure you will agree that spring is definitely with us now and it is good to see scenes like Doug captured on the front cover returning with the warmer days. At this time, I particularly like to see the goats feasting on the lush green vegetation, making the most of it before the summer arrives and parches it all.

I hope that everyone enjoyed the Carnival and Green Monday celebrations despite the weather not being too conducive to picnicking. It was a little disappointing not to see the skies full of kytes this year but encouraging that a few people did manage to fly them, myself included! We are well into the Lent period now and Easter, although late this year, will soon be here, with all of the feasting and celebrations that accompany this special weekend in Cyprus.

Children of Nepal Projects Update John and Penny smith We have had a very exciting month here in Kathmandu. At the end of January we ran a two day seminar for school leaders; the title was Getting Discipline Right which was not a subject that filled us with a huge amount of enthusiasm. In fact, it was very well received and we appear to have opened a lot of minds to seeing discipline from a positive point of view. It had never occurred to our audience that if a child was misbehaving perhaps there was something wrong that the child needed help to sort out. They still take a stick to children at school and are allowed to twist their ears etc. It was a two day seminar and we had people going home at the end of day one and trying some of our positive behaviour techniques out on their own children and they came back on day two full of awe and wonder that they worked! There were 40 participants so at least some school children here may get a better deal. In fact it was so popular that the training centre will be doing more workshops using our resources so hopefully many more children will benefit. When they asked us to do two days on discipline we hadn't realised what an affect we would be able to have on changing people's minds. The training centre seems very pleased and now have us booked to run the first evening workshops next month!

Kathmandu when they will be able to present the money to us in person. Today we have spent time with a Rotary Club president in Kathmandu who has agreed to welcome us to his club and discuss our work with them too. Sadly, the home won't quite be finished before we leave but it will be ready when the children come back to school at the start of the new academic year which begins here towards the end of April. We will, however, be involved with the purchase of all the equipment needed and have seen the carpenter's shop where all the wooden furniture will be made in Nuwakot. Next week we are going out with Room to Read, an organisation run by John Woods, a former Microsoft employee, who lost his heart to the children of Nepal when he visited on holiday ten years ago. They now raise funds internationally to build libraries and computer study rooms in rural locations and are taking us to see one that is up and running to give us ideas for our room. Interestingly, much of their money is raised, just as ours has been, by generous people planning fund raising social events with their friends.

Important as the seminar was, the highlight of the trip so far came last weekend when we spent three days in Nuwakot to see the new home for the deaf children, meet the children again and finalise the plans for the work we would fund there.

The home is going to be a palace for the children in comparison to their present living quarters in two tiny disused classrooms. We also had the chance to see the people who care for the children when they are not in lessons. Hopefully the pictures will give you some idea of what the home will be like. We have had some good news in that the Venture Scouts from Wimbledon in the UK, who did much of the initial work on the house last summer, have sent some extra funds that will complete the bedrooms leaving us with the kitchen, dining room and library / computer study room equipment to fund. This is quite a relief as the beds were going to be quite an item and we will now be able to make the children a very special study room. We are also delighted that the Rotary Club of Paphos, in conjunction with a Rotary Club in Khartoum, is sending an extra $1,800 for us to use for the deaf children. We are looking forward to meeting two members of the Cypriot Rotary club soon here in

We are also working with a Non Government Organisation which is using computers in rural areas to help bring literacy to every child in Nepal by 2015 which is the challenge set by the UN. The computers are very simple, strong laptops set up with access to reading materials for each age of child and learning activities to help practice literacy skills. The materials available are continually being extended and the computers have access to the internet so the teacher can download the new materials when they are added to the system. We are hoping that we may be able to get their computers for the deaf children and arrange some training for the teacher through them too. These are very exciting developments and we are delighted to have found so much support to help us near to the training centre and the home. It is hard to believe how fast the time is going and how much more we still need to do to get everything in place before we leave but hopefully by the time we do, most things will be sorted out. We are enjoying being very busy which, when you are down to just 10 hours of electricity a day and with at least half of that coming while we are asleep, is probably for the best!

God Speaks... Through His Word “Come to Me, All you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, And you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:28-29 These are the words of Jesus Himself. These words make up an amazing invitation. An invitation to “weary and burdened” people. That takes in a lot of us right now - and if not right now, probably tomorrow or soon! Many people and businesses give this invitation, knowing there is a ready market. Come and buy my services my products, my expert opinions.What is so different about the invitation of Jesus? Let's see… No price is mentioned - He really does offer Himself free! He invites all - not just certain types of “weary and burdened” He promises a result – and He has never broken His promise yet. His method? He teaches – and what a teacher! No-one else is so gentle, humble and patient with us. The final result - is more than rest from our weariness and burdens now, it is rest for our souls – eternal rest – in the presence of our Holy God. Is there a catch? There must be a catch! Nothing worth having is free.

Actually there isn't a catch. He is a man of His word. A God of His word. And He asks something of us – “Take My yoke upon you” That's not a catch. We need to give ourselves to Him completely. Allow ourselves to be tied to Him. Come under His control. That's not a catch, but it is something that our will fights against. But without it, there can be no rest. Jesus asks that we receive Him into our lives as Lord and Saviour. “Just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, Strengthened in the faith as you were Taught ,and overflowing in thankfulness.” (Colossians 2:6)

Jesus says, “Come to Me.”

a.m. Judging will begin at 11 a.m. Pauline and Leigh have organised sponsorship for all the classes so all proceeds will be donated to the charity. The winner of each class will receive a trophy and rosettes will be awarded for the first four places. There will also be huge additional trophies for Best Puppy, Best Veteran and, of course, Best in Show.

CANINES FOR CANCER DOG SHOW On 17th April 2011 the first ‘Canines for Cancer Dog Show’ is being held. There are 16 different classes for pedigrees and all other dogs, including puppies from 3 months old. Has your dog got the waggiest tail? Or is he a veteran over 7 years old? Why not bring your dog in fancy dress – be as outrageous as you like! There is a class suitable for every dog. All the proceeds are being given the Cancer Patients Support Group. The show is being organised by Leigh & Pauline Bishop who have been running shows in the U.K. for charities and the Kennel Club for over 30 years. Pauline is a qualified Kennel Club judge and Leigh is an experienced judge and steward, who has been involved in most major U.K. dog shows. The venue is the Bona Mare Beach Bar at Timi (off the Paphos Airport Road) - a big thank you to Kyriakos and Lana for allowing us the use of the premises free of charge. The show starts with entries being registered from 9.30

To encourage as many people as possible to come and be able to afford to enter all their dogs, the entry fee for each class will be ONLY €2.50. There will be a bar where refreshments and light lunches will be available. It is hoped that there will also be a variety of stalls, so if you want to book a stall to sell your wares, you can do so for ONLY €10! Pauline & Leigh will run the Canines for Cancer Dog Show as an annual event and we look forward to this first one being both an enjoyable day out and a great success. Pauline has chosen the Cancer Patients Support Group as the charity to benefit from this event as she is a cancer survivor and it was her dog who detected the cancer! If you need further information or wish to book a stall, please contact Pauline and Leigh on 99130761.

The Journey - Part 13 Sue de Groot Crew Lifeboat Drill, The Joys of the Computer Room We are still docked in Safaga, Egypt. Some of the passengers left yesterday to overnight in Luxor, so that they can visit Karnak. June is flaked out with her cold so I get up and walk the jogging deck for 2 hours. It is nice weather today. Tarot card today for June is “Do I still want to exchange my spontaneity for proper behaviour?” and mine is “Be completely aware and present in every experience!” All very cryptic. There is to be a crew lifeboat drill today so all services are shut down. The Captain announces over the tannoy that we are not to worry. We are glad the crew know how to behave in an emergency, since we still do not know, the other passengers having had their drill when they joined the ship in Istanbul (first port of call). We make a note to find out sometime, preferably before we sink. There is to be a line dancing class at 1.30 today, and we have signed up for it. It is nice weather, so we will probably sunbathe on the pool deck. But, this is not to be. June has signed up for a lesson in the computer room, and I get the urge to do so as well, so we are downloading and editing photos ready for the next free lesson on how to transfer your photos from the hard disk to a CD (at $20 a shot, but it has some pretty pictures on it, as a souvenir). At breakfast this morning, one of the waitresses says 'why don't you go to eat in Toscana Restaurant tonight?' So we do, and we have to dress up, which we do. The table was booked for 8 pm. But I am hungry so we turn up at 7.30. Restaurant is empty, although we were told it was fully booked, but the Maitre D' informs us that for some reason everyone turned up very early. It just shows that we do not have to dress up again in the future. There are 18 computers on board, and a printer, which we are allowed to use free of charge, providing we are only using the word processor. When we are at sea, there is always a long queue of people wanting to use the computers, so we have to get there early. Since the average age on board is about 70, not everyone has used a computer before, so there is always some confusion about how to download emails and how to send them, and sometimes the conversations can become interesting. We always end up with the giggles. There is an Australian girl in charge, who is somewhat intolerant of non-users and has a rather long baton which she points at people. It seems to

be some kind of sexual fantasy. There is also a Chinese man, called Eddy, who has the patience of a saint, which he needs with some of our fellow passengers as you will see below. We call him Saint Eddy. We have a geriatric Englishman from Yorkshire who has followed class 1 in downloading his photos and has got into a right mess. “I want picture 31 to follow 32, and so on, and I want to delete picture 34, and insert it later at picture 72.” “Well, you can't” says Eddy “because you have already deleted them all”. What do you mean I have deleted them, replies the Englishman. Eddy spends 10 minutes with him, trying to retrieve deleted items, before the damage is irreparable. Then we have an elderly American who comes in the room and wants to download 4 GB on email and when he is told that the ship is only on dial-up not broadband, he clutches at his pacemaker for the shock. Elderly American disappears, and joins the others who are now determined to find Internet cafes on shore, instead of going on excursions, since it would seem imperative that they are able to follow their stocks on the NY stock exchange. There is an American lady who wants to send an email in answer to the one she received, but she cannot type, so Saint Eddy says she can type with one finger, but she says no, so he has to do it for her, and she dictates the message. She does not know the email address of the recipient, but she says she has their home address, telephone and their neighbours. Would that help? She asks Eddy. Then there are the 'never used a computer before, never needed to' people who now suddenly want to hook up live with webcam with their kids back home. They spend an hour or two monopolising the computers and Saint Eddy almost loses his halo. We have a guy who has now discovered what computers can “all do” and he gets hooked and wants to play games on the computer, but does not know how. Saint Eddy getting slightly less saintly by now, and says he doesn't know either. All in all, it is a great way to spend some time when we are sailing, just to watch our fellow man typing with one finger or downloading some photos or checking their emails. Next month: Aqaba, Jordan, Chat with JR the Entertainment Director, Meet Sacha the Safety Director, Tales from the Laundry Room

How to Walk Like John Wayne in 3 Hours! In fact it was all my husband, Paul's, fault. Knowing th that my 60 birthday was looming, he was wracking his brains to find a way to celebrate the occasion in an original way. He contacted Caroline Grossmith at 'rideincyprus.com' who suggested a day ride along the trails of the beautiful Paphos Forest, culminating in a BBQ lunch at the Agios Merkourios picnic site. Caroline's partner Pawel, who used to work for Hilton hotels, would prepare a sumptuous meal and BBQ. Paul thought this was a really novel idea, especially as he had originally been going to take me to Thailand. It was suggested that as not all my friends are horse riders that we should also provide cycling and walking groups. Helen from Wheelie Cyprus agreed to lead a group of mountain bikers. The others had the option to walk or drive to the picnic site.

and Louise'. Stopping at the end of the spur was like being on top of the world with breathtaking scenery towards the Troodos Mountains. We were the last group to arrive for lunch, the smell of BBQ kebabs wafting along the trail spurring us into a final canter. A small stream was to be crossed then we had arrived in the beautiful glade setting of Agios Merkourios (with toilet facilities thank goodness!) Being met with a refreshing glass of champagne I truly felt the birthday girl. The food surpassed all expectations, so much so we were all still eating and drinking 3 hours later. The horses were, of course, well provided for with bumper sized hay burgers! The horses were keen to be on their way, so we set off along the forest trails as the sun was setting. Three hours later the welcoming lights of the stables greeted us, and now I know why John Wayne walked like that !! If you want an experience that will stay with you for many years I recommend you contact Caroline Grossmith on 99777624.

When the big day arrived it was a relief to wake up to beautiful sunshine after a week of stormy weather. The horse riders met up at Caroline's stables, which are situated at the head of a stunning valley on the edge of Lysos village. On arrival Caroline had Shadow, Harry, Farouk and Levantino saddled up and waiting. We got kitted up in hats, chaps and boots, all provided by Caroline, and off we set on our three hour adventure to the picnic site. Meanwhile, the energetic mountain bikers took an alternative route to encompass the mountain, including water crossings and a narrow gorge, ensuring a hearty appetite for lunch. One group of walkers had a gentle 6 km downhill stroll (taking 1.5 hours) along a wide track through the forest to the picnic site. To the great excitement of all concerned, this group were fortunate enough to spot the elusive native Moufflon. The other group walked up through the citrus orchards of Argaka. En route the horse riders cantered up a steep slope with a sheer drop on three sides nicknamed 'Thelma PALS Magazine April 2011 www.palsmagazine.com

Where Did That Wind Come From? By Roderick Lovett Smokey, the 20 year old noisy 2 stroke outboard, gamely chugged the good ship Angela, a 22 foot Pandora sailboat, out of the confines of Latchi harbour. It was a bright February day with about 4/10 ths cloud cover and very little wind in the offering. I decided just to deploy the large light weight cruising chute to find what zephyrs there were about, but eventually realised it was time to stow the sail and start the outboard again in search for some wind elsewhere, maybe further out away from the landmass. This was to no avail, so engine off again just to enjoy a quiet drift in the bay. Finally the wind indicators, strips of ribbon affixed to the boat, started to quiver, something was stirring, so up went the chute again this time fitfully filling with an 8 knot breeze Angela bowling along at a good 4 knots. With no particular destination to head for I just made the best of the wind and found myself heading towards Limini Pier. That will do fine as on a reciprocal course, should the wind hold on this beam reach, it would make a good return course. Whilst some 2 mile offshore, I glanced around to see how the clouds were forming and found that there was a build up of very dark clouds over the Akamas. Did I need to get wet when the weather had been so pleasant, a definite negative. So it was a quick jibe around and head back to Latchi for a beer and a chat. This cloud cover started to look somewhat ominous with its deep mauve hue and thunder heads appearing above and then 10 minutes later with waves regularly building up it happened!

From nowhere a 32 knot wind had put Angela on her side (beam ends on) with the mast parallel with the sea, water gushing below. Unfortunately in this position I could not get to the sheet (rope) to take pressure out of the sail, managing to turn the boat into wind some pressure was released from the sail, giving me a chance to uncleat the sheet, but it was only a momentary respite, again she went on to her beam ends with the sea further building, even more water was flooding below, another try but alas to the same

result a definite sinking feeling came upon me. Why was I not wearing my self inflating compact life jacket? I could just make it out swilling about in the cabin below completely out of my reach. The good thing was that the automatic inflation device had worked, although not the best consolation in this position. There was another sailboat out at this time, Himaira, with Alan and Kate on board and just before my knock down I had seen Kate on deck dousing their mainsail they were heading back to the harbour. Kate was back in the cockpit when the wind hit so they were relatively safe with a small jib up, but still a shock at being heeled over at an unexpected angle. They stayed within my vicinity seeing how much trouble I was in not being able to communicate, but a reassurance to me all the same. At this point I realized that we were being driven towards the new rocky breakwaters the wind and sea in unison on thier quest. Only one action left for me to take, come off of the wind and try and steer between the breakwaters, upon initiating this action we scooped up a final charge of sea water. Shooting the gap was a somewhat close call but the boat, although sitting low in the water was now more upright. I would have been able to release the sheet but as it happened the clip at the sail end, just at that time, broke away so wind pressure dropped I just had a large following sea as a contender. The weight of water in the boat actually slowed me down acting rather like a sea anchor. Alan and Kate headed back in once they had seen me through the gap. They themselves were getting perilously close to the breakwater. Time to see if I could start the engine; second pull of the rope and Smokey was up and singing, but with that weight and size of sea (for this area) there was no way Angela could be steered towards Latchi. The beach was the only option. Angela has twin keels so would just sit upright if presented to the beach at the right angle. The waves and the wind were around 90 degrees to the shore at this point so a ponderous approach was made not so gently, embedding the keels into the shingle. First thing was to get the cruising chute stowed and out of the way. Then lay an anchor to the shore in case the wind changed. Time to asess how much damage has been done to the boat and will it be possible to get her back to harbour without sinking. Next month - getting back to the harbour

Beauty is only Skin Deep...... Kate Fessas It's here! The IONTO non-surgical face lift has arrived in Polis. The IONTO machine is a state-of-the-art machine for cosmetic treatment of the face and body. There are a number of machines out there on the market now, all claiming to give non-surgical face lift results. . . but quite frankly, they don't. This is due to several reasons but mostly due to under investment in equipment and technicians with little to no training. New programmes are continually being developed in cooperation with the University of Karlsruhe, Germany. That means the IONTO is always up-to-date based upon the latest scientific knowledge. When it comes to any procedure on the face, cosmetic or therapeutic it is never worth taking any risks.

If you would like to find out more or have any questions please do not hesitate in contacting me or booking a free Skin Consultation, when I can also demonstrate the machine. Course of IONTO-Lift Facials - Like with all the Facial Packages I believe in treating the whole body.

Also included with a course of treatments is free eyebrow shaping and eyelash tinting so you are always looking and feeling your best. For €200 you receive 5 th facials and enjoy 6 one free. So that's it, don't delay, come and book your course of

How does it work ? – The IONTO machine uses a mediumfrequency current to reduce the formation of wrinkles and those wrinkles which already exist are smoothed out. Regular treatment with the face-lifting programmes tautens the facial musculature and firms the skin by increasing the tissue volume under sagging areas of skin.

My Previous Guide Dogs - Yana Jan Gibson Over twenty years ago I got my first Guide Dog, a lovely black Labrador called Yana, she was a real character, and for those who can remember the name, yes she did have a big chest. As we couldn’t take dogs abroad then without quarantine procedures, we stayed in the UK for our annual holiday that year, renting a cottage on a large estate near Dartmouth. When we went for a swim at the pool in the central complex, we tied Yana to a heavy bench with wrought iron ends, got in the pool, took a couple of strokes and had to get out in a hurry. Yana was heading for the pool dragging the bench behind her! It wasn’t to get to us, she just loved water. We went to Slapton Sands where we let Yana run free, Roger threw a couple of pebbles into the sea and after the slightest hesitation in Yana went, swimming straight out to sea, Roger suggested that I recall her, ‘as she is heading for France with no passport’. Another day we walked on a path with water on either side and I still don’t know how I escaped having a swim with my clothes on, her Guide Dog training must have been greater than the urge to swim. On another occasion she tried to get over a 6 foot wall to get into a river. Apart from her water affinity she worked so well for me. One evening we went to the restaurant, had a meal then had a drink in the bar. On coming out, Roger said ‘I don’t know about you not seeing where you are going, neither can it is so dark’. I told him ‘there is no problem as Yana will get us back’, so Roger took my free arm and off we went. This was when we discovered that Guide Dogs find space for themselves and their owner only. There were some bollards at just the right height, (or wrong height depending how you look at it), and Roger walked right in to one, ouch!! Whenever we were out for the day we tended to have a pub lunch, so when we passed a pub Yana always turned to go in and was disappointed when she was told to pass it. Yana went everywhere with me, including the Regimental Summer Ball, though she would try to join us on the dance floor.

I had a problem with my spine and was admitted to a RAF hospital for a month, and Yana went with me. We had a side ward so that no other patients would be upset. The nurses would come in at 6 am to take Yana for a walk before starting work, and also take her out at lunchtime, evening and last thing at night. One day the physiotherapist was manipulating my spine and I cried out as it hurt, Yana shot from her bed growling and the physio said she was showing him her teeth. I promptly reassured her that I was OK and apologised to him. He said it was alright as she was only doing her job but when I told him that Guide Dogs are not taught to protect, he replied that he wished someone had told Yana that. From then on, if Yana saw or heard him she’d start to growl. If, in the village, I had not allowed her to visit the butcher for a bone or the pet shop for a treat she would stomp along, grumbling to herself, with her head and tail down. As we got level with the church where a shrub hung over the wall, she would walk close to the wall so that the bush brushed my face, then her head and tail would go up and she would strut as if to say, ‘there that’ll teach you to thwart me’, she enjoyed this most when it had been or was raining. One hot summer weekend we visited our son in the Cotswold village where he lived and as we were later than arranged we met him in the pub. We were asked if the dog would like a drink and she was duly presented with what we thought was a dish of water, which was drunk in a flash. This happened several times throughout the evening and it wasn’t until we were leaving and she staggered that we discovered she had been drinking the drip tray contents, working her way across the bar from Stella to Worthington’s 6X via Double Diamond, Guinness and a few more. She really was ‘drunk in charge’, it was lucky we only had a few paces to walk home. The next day she had a real ‘hang dog’ expression and when Roger took her for a walk in the water meadows, she just walked in to the cool river, with a huge sigh, until just her nose was showing above the surface. We didn’t give her ‘a hair of the dog that bit her’.

25 White Mustard, fresh from a field near you! Cheryl Harding White mustard, a healthy dietary supplement, (L. Sinapis alba or Brassica alba / Gr. Vrouves or Cy. Lapsana) Farmers cultivating other crops in Cyprus might see white mustard as a weed, a nuisance which tries to take over any available space. Indeed it is an annual weed, but those in the know appreciate white mustard for what it really is – a healthy, succulent alternative to standard salad leaves when eaten young and tender or a tasty cooked vegetable when not in its first flush of youth! White mustard can grow to be nearly 2 metres tall. It is a source of iron, calcium, potassium and vitamins A, B and C, and is also believed to have cancer prevention qualities. It also has diuretic and antibiotic qualities, helps with blood circulation and digestion – but be careful, as (far) too much of the uncooked leaves can cause tummy problems.

together with cress (a relative) in salad. The white mustard season continues until April, but for salads it’s best only to use the new leaves, harvested before the plant blooms in February / March. Lapsana can be boiled and served with lemon juice and olive oil as an alternative to spinach and other leaf vegetables.

From a distance, it is difficult to distinguish between a field of white mustard and a field of rapeseed (another relative), because of the abundance of yellow flowers, although close up, the two are easy to tell apart. White mustard has hairy seed pods, with each pod containing roughly a half dozen seeds. When planted as a yield crop, the seeds are harvested just before the pods become ripe and burst.

White mustard seeds are hard round seeds, usually around 1 to 1.5 millimetres in diameter, with a colour ranging from beige or yellow to light brown. They can be used whole for pickling, toasted for use in dishes, or ground and mixed with other ingredients to make paste we all know and love (or hate ...).

The best time to pluck young, tender shoots to be eaten as appetizers or for salad is around NovemberDecember, when the plant comes into its own after the first rains. Very young shoots are often eaten

Did you know: Cabbages, cauliflower, turnips and radishes are all relatives of mustard. Canada grows 90% of all the mustard seed for the international market. White mustard is readily found in Cyprus and in fact

Weight isn’t everything! Loose inches, tone down and look slimmer! Weight is an important measure of health. The more you weigh the more risk you have of diseases such as heart disease, blood pressure, hypercholesteremia, type 2 diabetes and stress on joints. If you are losing weight, it is important to know that you should only weigh yourself once a week, or even once a month. It is far too easy to expect miracles on a weekly basis, yet we forget weight gain has developed over the years. Losing weight slowly through healthy diet and exercising regularly is more effective, and will help you keep it off in the longterm. Weight is a personal issue, and individual to each person. It is important to understand that weight can fluctuate over time, particularly in women during menopause, and the menstrual cycle. Weight can also fluctuate depending on the weather and how hydrated you are. Your Body Mass Index (BMI) measures whether you are a healthy weight for your height. The higher the BMI the more risks to certain health diseases and cancer you have that are linked to being overweight. However if you have lost a lot of weight and not in the higher BMI categories, it is important to take into consideration all of the factors, such as body frame, ethnic origin, gender and lifestyle, when evaluating your BMI. For example, research has shown that people from the South Asian origin are at more risk to heart disease, compared to the Caucasians. Considering that every body's metabolism, lifestyle and culture are different, and everybody comes in different shapes and sizes, can the same BMI tool be used to classify every body's weight? The World Health Organisation (WHO) suggests that a combination of the BMI and waist circumference needs to be used. A waist measurement of 80 cm for women is considered high risk and 94 cm for men. This is important because the more fat deposits you have around the mid section is a danger of fat around the kidneys, heart, liver, and pancreas which lead to chronic diseases. When we start to exercise you may develop muscle over time. The ratio of fat is replaced by muscle which weighs heavier. Having lots of muscle may put you in the unhealthy range of the BMI. Building muscle is good because it burns calories and increases your metabolism, so you are burning calories throughout the day and even while you sleep!. If you see you weigh heavier than before, that becomes demotivational, So do not get bogged down with the BMI! However,

building more muscle makes your body becomes stronger, leaner and more toned. A simple and effective indication of weight loss is monitoring if your clothes start to get loose. Also you may be able to fit into clothes you could not before, and people may start to notice a difference and compliment you. There may not necessarily be a loss in weight but you know that you are leaner and trimmer. Physical activity is an important part of losing weight. Adults should get at least 30 minutes of physical activity, five days a week. Types of physical activity should include a combination of cardiovascular and toning exercises. Toning exercises such as bums, legs and tums (LBT) are becoming very popular. These exercises can work these areas particular in women who feel they need to tone up. The floor exercises are conducted on a mat to work different muscle groups in isolation, to get the toning effect. Muscles that haven't been used before are worked, so you notice a significant inch loss in these areas, regardless of weight, so it's a good way to work out. As toning strengthens muscles that improve your posture, you stand taller and look slimmer. Strengthening muscles and joints can also help reduce back and joint pain. If you can go down a dress size, you instantly look like you have lost weight, so weight isn't everything! People feel better as they get toned and loose inches. There are now a variety of classes on in Polis to suit everybody's needs. The toning class, LBT class is on every Monday morning at 10.00 am. If you prefer a mixture of low impact cardiovascular exercise combined with toning and stretching Keep fit 4Life is on at 9.00 am, and dance yourself fitter with Salsacise at 11.00 am. You are guaranteed fun at any class. For further information call or text Rav on 99981294.

28 Another Gem in Miliou

Sandie’s Sewing Box

Last month we talked about the healing sulphur streams that flow through the village of Miliou. This month, we would like to tell you about a wonderful traditional tavern which is in the heart of the village, just a short and very scenic drive off the main road to Polis. Pangratios Tavern is on the peaceful village square and whether you sit inside or out, just have a drink or a meal, you will feel the warmth of the Cypriot hospitality from the family who own and run it. The lovely old building, which was originally the village school and teacher’s home, has belonged to this family since the school closed in 1920. Unfortunately, the earthquake in 1995 partly demolished it and it was tastefully and respectfully refurbished by the family ready to re-open in its current form last year.

We would like to advise our exisiting and new customers that we will be relocating from Polis Square at the end of April. It’s still business as usual during the move, so please still call Sandie or Chrissy on 97787925 or 99964770 for all your sewing requirements. Remember: ‘If it CAN be sewn, we CAN sew it’

The menu remains traditional, the food being prepared with fresh quality ingredients and includes the family’s own homemade sausages and Lountza.

Details of our new location will be given in the next issue of PALS Magazine.

Strawberry Pavlova By Heather Wright This recipe has been a firm favourite with my family and friends for many years and is an impressive dessert that is quick and easy to make. With strawberries plentiful and cheap at the moment and summer in the air, it is a perfect time to enjoy it. For a Cypriot alternative, try filling it with greek yogurt sprinkled with chopped nuts and drizzling it with honey. Ingredients 3 egg whites 6oz caster sugar 1 teaspoon vinegar 500ml double or whipping cream Strawberries 1 Chocolate square

Fold in the remaining sugar and the vinegar using a metal spoon. Spoon the meringue mixture on to the paper in rough ‘dollops’ around the marked outline and then fill in the middle so that it looks like a nest. Place in the centre of the preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes. Turn the oven off and leave the meringue in it until it is completely cold. This prevents to meringue cracking and is best done overnight. Slide the meringue off the paper on to the serving plate and just before serving, fill with the whipped cream, top with strawberries and perhaps a few half slices of kiwi for some added colour and grate the chocolate over the top.

Method Heat the oven to 325’f, 160’c or gas mark 3. Draw a circle 20cm in diameter on a sheet of non-stick parchment paper and place on a baking tray. Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form and then add half of the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking after each addition.
