“What are you doing about those FLEAS” During the flea cycle only about 5% of fleas are actually living on your dog or cat. The other 95% of fleas are living in your house or yard. That is why it is so important to get rid of the fleas in your house and on your dog or cat at the same time. Set aside a couple of hours it is not a five minute quick fix job. It is important to treat all your pets and your house at the same time. Vacuuming is one of the most important steps of getting rid of fleas. Spray all rugs, carpets, places your pet sleeps, pay particular attention to dark spaces. GERONIMOOOOO

!! n O Fish

Tyee season starts July 15th “Tyee” is another name given to the Spring or Chinook salmon, the largest of all the salmon species. The name “Tyee” comes from an Indian word that means “great” or “chief.” The term Tyee is usually used to refer to Spring or Chinook salmon that weigh 30lbs or more. Campbell River, in British Columbia, is known as the salmon and Tyee capital of the world. It was here that the famous Tyee Club was born. The idea for the Tyee Club officially started in 1925 with the setting up of a set of rules. One important member, who was instrumental in the success of the Club and Tyee fishing in general, was E.P. Painter. He owned one of the first fishing camps, located on the Spit. He was also the inventor and manufacturer of the Tyee boat. Two of the aims of the club were to increase interest in game fishing of the Tyee and to emphasize the principles of sportsmanship. The club accomplished both of these aims. Today, Tyee fishing and the Tyee Club are world renown. People from all over the world come to Campbell River in August to try to catch one of the great Tyees, or earn a place in the Tyee Club hall of fame. Moreover, the club, with its strict rules on how the Tyee is caught, has made catching one an art and a challenge. It is not the

number of fish you catch but rather the size and the fight that count. Because it is not easy to catch a Tyee according to club rules, the number of Tyee caught each year is less than the number of salmon caught by other means.

Tyee Club Rules • Fishers must have a current fishing license. • The fish has to be caught in a specific area (Tyee pools) • The boat being used cannot be powered by a motor, except to get to the fishing grounds. Otherwise the boat must be oar powered. • A fishing rod must be between six and nine feet long (2-3m). • The reel must be hand operated with no clutch mechanisms. • The fishing line must have a breaking point of 20 lbs. (9kg). or less. • Artificial lures that are made for trolling must be used. • Single barbless hooks must be used. The Tyee Club has stayed with its tradition, making skillful angling the essence of the sport.” (Van Egan. River Sportsman.)

The Effects of Stress on the Mind

Stress is a normal physical response to events that make you feel threatened or upset your emotional balance in some way. Continuous exposure to stress, however, can have harmful effects not only on the the body but also on the mind! Thoughts and perceptions can be negatively influenced by the prolonged exposure to stress and can result in : - Inability to make decisions or muddled thinking - Becoming more forgetful - Negative ‘globalization’ eg. everything seems to go wrong/is bad - Defensiveness - Rushed decisions - Sleeping too much or too little - Isolating yourself from others - Procrastinating or neglecting responsibilities - Nervous habits (e.g. nail biting) The most dangerous thing about stress is how easily it can sneak up on you and it is important to learn how to recognize when your stress levels are out of control. An effective tool in helping you to do this is to keep a Stress Diary. To get started, make regular entries in your Stress Diary and record the following information: - The date and time of the entry - The most recent stressful event you experienced and the ultimate cause of the stress. - How happy you feel now, using a scale of 0 (the most unhappy you have ever been) to 10 (the happiest you have been). Also write down the mood you are feeling. Awareness is the first step in managing your stress. To your health! Gabriela Eikeland DN,CSMC, RT-CRA www.womenspathofhealing.com

V of the month

A woman went to her doctor’s office. She was seen by one of the new doctors, but after about 4 minutes in the examination room, she burst out screaming and ran down the hall. An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was, and she explained. He had her sit down and relax in another room. The older doctor marched back to the first and demanded, “What’s the matter with you? Mrs. Terry is 63 years old, she has four grown children and seven grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?” The new doctor smiled smugly as he continued to write on his clipboard. “Cured her hiccups though, didn’t it?”
