We will fill your skip for you! boomerang SKIPS & RECYCLING Jokes Recently, a large corporation hired several cannibals to increase their diversity, "You are all part of our team now," said the Human Resourc- es rep during the welcoming briefing. "You get all the usual benefits and you can go to the cafeteria for some- thing to eat, but please don't eat any employees." The cannibals promised they would not. Four weeks later their boss remarked, "You're all working very hard and I'm satisfied with your work. We have noticed a marked increase in the whole company's performance. How- ever, one of our secretaries has disap- peared. Do any of you know what happened to her?" The cannibals all shook their heads, "No." After the boss had left, the leader of the cannibals said to the others, "Which one of you idiots ate the sec- retary?" A hand rose hesitantly. "You fool!" the leader continued. "For four weeks we've been eating managers and no one noticed anything. But now, you had to go and eat someone who actually does something." A woman invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to their six-year-old daughter and said, "Would you like to say the bless- ing?" "I wouldn't know what to say," the girl replied. "Just say what you hear mommy say," the woman answered. The daughter bowed her head and said, "Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?". A wife, being the romantic sort, sent her husband a text: “If you are sleep- ing, send me your dreams. If you are laughing, send me your smile. If you are eating, send me a bite. If you are drinking send me a sip. If you are crying, send me your tears. I love you! The husband, typically nonromantic, replied, “I am on the toilet. Please advise!” What did the farmer say when he couldn't find his tractor 'Where's my tractor?'" A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day. 30,000 to a man’s 15,000. The wife replied, “The reason has to be because we have to repeat every- thing to men. The husband then turned to his wife and asked, “What?” Children: You spend the first 2 years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next 16 telling them to sit down and shut- up.” ”I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.” A taxi passenger taps the driver on the shoulder to ask him a question. The driver screams, loses control of the car, nearly hits a bus, goes up on the footpath, and stops centimeters from a shop window. For a second, everything goes quiet in the cab, then the driver says, "Look mate, don't ever do that again. You scared the daylights out of me!" The passenger apologizes and says, "I didn't realize that a little tap would scare you so much.” The driver replies, "Sorry, it's not really your fault. Today is my first day as a cab driver. I've been driving a funeral hearse for the last 25 years." A man in a bar sees a friend at a ta- ble, drinking by himself. Approach- ing the friend, he comments, "You look terrible. What's the problem?" "My mother died in August," he said, "and left me $25,000." "Gee, that's tough," he replied. "Then in Septem- ber," the friend continued, "my father died, leaving me $90,000." "Wow. Two parents gone in two months. No wonder you're depressed." "Then last month, my aunt died and left me $15,000." "Three close family mem- bers lost in three months? How sad." "Then this month," continued the friend, "absolutely nothing!"

MSM Recycling is the only Company in Ireland to Date accredited to End of Waste status for its Iron, Steel and Aluminium products. Web: www.msmrecycling.com BEST PRICES PAID FOR YOUR SCRAP METAL This Sunday 7th July a World Record attempt is being attempted in Lough Derg by Scuba Diver Christopher Healy. Christopher has previously set a new World Record travelling a distance of 10km un- derwater to raise money for the Share a Dream Foundation. Nenagh based Lough Derg Sub Aqua Club, along with other dive clubs and divers, will be providing boat cover and cover divers to as- sist Christy in his attempt to travel a distance of 20km underwater in Lough Derg. He also plans to set a new record for the fastest 10km underwater while he’s at it. As you do! The dive will commence at 4am from Two Mile Gate travelling up the Shannon for a distance before turning around and Christy hopes to surface at Killaloe at 4pm hav- ing travelled the 20km. The under- water hero will surface as another Irish hero is being celebrated at The Féile Brian Ború, which runs in Killaloe/Ballina from the 4th to 7th July. You can follow his adven- tures and incredible training regime and get in touch to make donations or offer assistance on his Facebook page ‘Christopher Healy - Diving for Charity’. The craziest thing about the whole underwater adventure is that it is a precursor to the main event which Christy is planning for the end of August. He plans to attempt anoth- er new World Record by scuba div- ing from Scotland to Northern Ireland! What got him started on this whole thing you might ask? In early 2010 Christopher Healy and his wife Trish were told that their only child, Stephen (18) had Non-Hodg- kin’s Lymphoma (cancer of the lymphoid tissue). The family faced the illness head on. A cousin of Christy’s who visited the hospital regularly was Jonathan Mangan who was also an active volunteer with The Share a Dream Founda- tion who do incredible work for sick children all over Ireland. To ‘give something back’/ ‘pay it for- ward’ for all the help and support received by the Healy family, Christy decided, as you do, to set a new World Record scuba diving 10 kilometers underwater to raise funds for Share a Dream. And what about Christy’s son Stephen? Well I am happy to say that after six months of Chemotherapy and a kidney operation Stephen was giv- en the all clear. Lough Derg Sub Aqua Club assisting in World Record attempt in aid of the Share A Dream Foundation and the Temple Street Children's Hospital Muck Off is a new cross country challenge taking place on a scenic 150 acre parkland estate just out- side Nenagh in North Tipperary, taking place on Sunday August 4th 2013.

Munster Minor Hurling Final Referee Congratulations to Fergal Horgan of Knockavilla Kickhams who has been appointed as referee for the Munster Minor Hurling Final be- tween Limerick and Waterford on Sunday July 14 at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick. His linesmen will be John O’Brien (Arravale Rovers) and Anthony Sherlock (Kildangan). Since the minor hurl- ing championship resumed in 1945, Tipperary have only failed to ap- pear in either the Minor or Senior Final in the following years - 1966, 1972, 1977, 1979, 1994, 1995, 1998, 2010 and now 2013. The only previous Limerick v Waterford Mi- nor final was in 1958 when Limer- ick (who had dethroned Tipp earlier in the Munster championship) won by 8-9 to 2-5 at Thurles. They also won the All Ireland Title that year. Never before hase there been a Munster Final day of Limerick v Waterford in minor and Limerick v Cork in senior.

  • 6. On the evening of May 30th, Minister Alan Kelly TD officially opened the new iMac technology Centre in Templemore College of Further Education. Minister Kelly was also there to witness Launch Pad 2013, the College’s Art, De- sign and Technology on-line Ex- hibition. This exhibition was the creation of Design and Media Teachers, Nicola Welford and Ciara O’Sullivan. The exhibition went live with the help of UK Guest Alan Brown from Krown Films. The iMac Centre was developed to provide market leading hardware and software for students partici- pating in Media, Creative Media, and Design programmes in the Col- lege. Opening the event Cllr. John Hog- an, Deputy Chairperson of the Board of Management of the Col- lege, thanked all the guests for coming and said that this was a proud moment for the Board, staff, and students of the College. He said that the College went through difficult times in the recent past but the development of this new Tech- nology Centre points to the future with confidence. In his remarks the Principal of the College, Noel Colleran PhD, in- formed guests of the recent break- in and burglary in the College when all 25 iMacs were stolen. This was a devastating event however man- agement and staff in the College had the iMac Centre up and run- ning in a matter of weeks. It was indicative of the resilience of the College when faced with adversity. He went on to say that ‘tonight is a proud moment for the College and we are delighted to be officially opening the new Centre and show- casing the excellent work of our students’.

The Link 4 Life Pro- gramme was launched recently by John Treacy CEO Irish Sports Council, Senator Eamonn Coughlan and Minister Alan Kelly TD. Elaine Cullinan, Sports Coordinator NTSP explains ‘The fundamental objective of Tip- perary Link 4 Life is to increase awareness about the benefits of physical activity for both physical and mental well-being. We aim to educate physical activity and sporting providers about mental well-being and the benefits their groups can provide to the wid- er community. We also aim to inform the people of North Tipperary about the physical activity and sporting resources that exist in each community in the region and in doing so connect the physical activity providers with the people of North Tipperary. Tipperary link 4 Life plans to encourage the people of North Tipperary to be proactive in dealing with and speaking about mental well-being’. Specifically, Tipperary Link 4 Life will: • Provide training including Safe- TALK “Suicide Alertness for Everyone” and Peer Support and Self Advocacy to help to educate volunteers about mental well-being. • Develop and distribute a Tipper- ary Link 4 Life brochure containing infor- mation about: o The benefits of physical activity for mental well-being, o Contact details for the people participating in the Tipperary Link 4 Life training and o Contact details for important organisations in the area of Mental Health. The Tipperary Link 4 Life training enables its participants to become: • Aware of their own well-being and how to care for and maintain it. • Recognise the signs and symp- toms of distress in others. • Be able to listen and offer sup- port. • Understand their own limitations and boundaries. John Treacy CEO Irish Sports Council com- mented ‘ The Community is rightly con- cerned about suicide and other mental health issues. Sport and physical activity is benefi- cial to every aspect of our health including our emotional well being. It is great to see North Tipperary LSP taking an initiative in this area’ To date, 20 volunteers have completed the SafeTALK “Suicide Alertness for Every- one” training course while 7 have completed the Peer Support & Self Advocacy training. One participant at the Tipperary Link 4 Life training commented “The training was very interesting and worthwhile. It opened my eyes more to my own life and others.” North Tipperary Sports Partnership will ar- range more Tipperary Link 4 Life training in Thurles, Roscrea and Templemore in the coming months. Keep in touch with all up- dates by visiting our website www.ntsp.ie regularly or contacting the NTSP office to add your name to our mailing list.

The crew were on their fourth day of filming an RTE documentary recreat- ing the historic march of O’Sullivan Beare which took place in the winter of 1603. The epic march from Beara in Co. Cork to Co. Leitrim took O’Sullivan and his followers 14 days, and of the 1000 men, women and children who marched with him, only 35 arrived in Leitrim. Some of the most dramatic parts of O’Sullivan’s journey took place in the parish of Lorrha. They were attacked by the Macegan clan from Redwood Castle and at Ballymacegan they made their dangerous voyage across the river Shannon. The day began at Redwood Castle where the crew were made very wel- come as they filmed from the top of the castle. Local man David Broder- ick gave an account of O’Sullivan’s journey through the parish. The sec- ond part of filming took place at White’s Ford in Ballymacegan. It was here that O’Sullivan Beare and his men crossed the Shannon in a currach made by killing and skinning their own horses. Currach builders Pádraig Ó’Duinnín and Dave Nolan were on site to try and recreate this important part of the journey. Pádraig may be a familiar face to some from his TG4 series Muintir na Mara. Over two days they built the frame- work of a currach out of hazel and demonstrated with cow hides how O’Sullivan may have made a suitable vessel to travel across the river. The documentary is due to be screened on RTE 1 on Sunday 7th July at 6.30pm and will be presented by broadcaster Evelyn O’Rourke.

  • 8. Tipp Tatler www.tipptatler.ie The newly formed Borrisoleigh Dra- ma Group took to the stage for their premiere performance on Thursday 13th of June. They presented a play in one act by Lady Gregory set in the early 1900’s. From the moment the curtain was raised the audience were transported back to a fair day in a rural Irish village. The set design was outstanding with every last detail thought through; the stalls and the wares displayed created an authentic backdrop to the story as did the cos- tumes and the props. The production team had the inspired idea of opening the play with a group of children playing. This allowed the audience to take in the set and get a feel for the atmosphere of the play. The story while set in a different era is one we all can relate to, who doesn’t enjoy a good ‘gossip’ espe- cially about the neighbours, and bet- ter again if there is a crime involved! The local policeman (Paddy Dolan) is escorting the new magistrate (Michael Kinane) around the village. They encounter a stall owner (Úna Shanahan) whose hearing impair- ment and desire for a good gossip leads to a series of events only the hand of the law can solve! The most misfortunate man in the village, Bar- tley Fallon (Ollie Delaney), finds himself through no fault of his own at the centre of the crime. The towns folk (Derry O’Donnell, Joe Holland, Kellie Kelly, Antoinette McMahon, Bríd Ní Chléirigh-Devitt and Marie Murray) fan the flames of gossip spreading their stories far and wide. Until Mrs. Fallon (Christine O’Dwyer) must defend her husband; and what about the fate of Jack Smith (Paul Boyle)? The audience were enthralled as everyone tried to figure how it would all end. It is hard to believe that this was the first time most of these actors were on stage. Their energy and ability to capture the essence of the characters they were playing was phenomenal. A great tribute must be paid to the production team of Mary Boyle- Bourke, Caroline Kennedy and Patri- cia Ryan. The fact that the group per- formed to a full house on two nights in the Marian Hall is testament to their success. We look forward with anticipation to the next performance from the Borrisoleigh Drama Group. Borrisoleigh Drama Back with a Bang Write A Book Have you written a story and would like it in Book Form?

This event will explore the possibili- ties and issues involved in localising most of the food systems for individ- uals and communities. The Clough- jordan Ecovillage and broader community provide the practical con- text for exploring diverse methods and scales of production, appropriate diets, alternate market strategies such as Community Supported Agricul- ture systems, and the issues relating to the production of vegetable, meat, milk, dairy and grains. Planning for a full diet, working with available re- sources and issues of resilience will be key themes throughout the presen- tations, discussions and practical components of this exploration. The day will include a tour of the Ecovillage, the Cloughjordan Com- munity Farm and the RED Gardens. It will be conducted in an interactive way combining input with active par- ticipation. It is open to anyone who is interested in the issues being ex- amined and does not require any pri- or level of knowledge. This seminar is led by Bruce Darrell who is currently developing the Re- search Education Development (RED) Gardens in Cloughjordan Ecovillage and works with Feasta on issues relating to Food Security.

There are a few ways you can alter your mini greenhouse to get more plants in. The first thing you can do is to install shelving along one side. This will allow you to stack smaller grow- ing vegetables such as lettuce, salads and herbs on top of each other and you can save the opposite side of the green house for taller growing plants like tomatoes and cucumber or sweetcorn. Be aware that the shelving is going to cast a big shadow all year round so it would be best to position it on the north side of your greenhouse and grow your tomatoes on the south side where they will receive more sunlight. Some greenhouse plants benefit from shade: Aubergines Oregano Asparagus Lettuce Plants that are happy in full sun: Tomatoes Squashes Melons Strawberries However in the height of summer all plants in the greenhouse will benefit from some amount of shading in the middle of the day. This can be done using a garden fleece or frost fleece draped over the glass or around indi- vidual plants. Taller plants will provide shade for other plants. Tall Peas, Bean and to- matoes can be used to shade lettuce, salads and herbs The next thing to consider when opti- mising space in your greenhouse is to know what plants will grow just as well outside. With that in mind we can say that all brassicas can be sown out- side, however it is best practise to start your seedlings in the greenhouse and transplant out once the soil and air temperature is warm and the plants are large enough that they can outcompete weeds. This method is true for the onion fami- ly and root crop family too. Therefore the vegetables that should be grown in your greenhouse include the follow- ing: Tomatoes Courgettes Cucumbers Sweetcorn French Beans Strawberries Melons Squashes Quick crop salads Peppers and chillies And for starting all outdoor grown seedlings And for over-wintering lettuce, spring onions and peas Another way to maximise your green- house is to continue to rotate the crops over the year. The greenhouse can be used all year round and this is the best way to optimise the space you have. If the weather outside is warm then you should make full use of your vegetable beds and save the greenhouse for the more tender crops mentioned above. If your space is limited then avoid growing courgettes as they spread to about a meter in diameter and avoid sowing sweet corn which needs to be sown in groups and will dominate a small greenhouse. Where possible you could hang trail- ing tomatoes plants such as the cherry Tomato ‘Tumbler’ from the ceiling of your greenhouse, grown in hanging baskets. What Vegetables Should you Grow in a Mini Greenhouse Vinegar is a magic wonder when it comes to gardening. It not only kills weeds but they help flowers grow as well. Douse white vinegar all around your garden to prevent weeds from popping up and to help your flowers to grow healthy and strong. Quick Gardening Tip Vinegar: Kills Weeds and Helps Flowers Grow
  • 10. Tipp Tatler www.tipptatler.ie World Record attempt - Largest Football Mosaic On Saturday 6th July in Moyle Rov- ers GAA Club Tipperary Ladies Gaelic Football will attempt to break a world record by creating the Larg- est Football Mosaic. This involves placing balls beside each other to cre- ate a picture. Members of the public are asked to become involved in the event by coming along and placing a ball in the football mosaic. Currently the record for the largest football mosaic is measured 9.75 m (32 ft) in length and 5.94 m (19.5 ft) in width giving a total area of 57.92 m² (624 ft²) and was achieved by BMO Bank of Montreal (Canada) at Yonge-Dundas Square, Toronto, Canada, on 5 July 2012. Tipperary hopes to break this record a year and a day later by creating a Mo- saic of 65 m², using at a minimum 1,395 balls and there will be extra balls there if required. The Mosaic will create a picture of the words “The Horse & Jockey” who are the sponsors of the event and the Tipper- ary Intermediate Team. While the Mosaic is being built there will be a blitz on the pitches for Un- der 10 and Under 14 girls. The Un- der 10 Blitz will be a maximum of 11 players a side with unlimited substi- tutions and the Under 14 Blitz will be 7 a side with unlimited substitutions, Clubs may enter more than one team if they wish. There is no entry fee for either blitz but clubs must bring with them someone who will referee games on the day. Clubs are asked to note that both the Under 10 Blitz and Under 14 Blitz will be non-competi- tive with the emphasis on player skill development. Tipperary Ladies Gaelic Football Clubs have received invitations during the week and a great number of clubs are expected on the day. The day promises foot- ball and fun at its best. From the beginning of time, people have wanted to mark the burial plac- es of their loved ones. From the magnificence of the Pyramids and Newgrange, through the simple beauty of Poulnabrone, right down to modern times all memorials have been made of stone. There was sim- ply no other natural material that was as durable or permanent as stone, and because it could be cut and en- graved, it was possible to record a burial as a signpost to future genera- tions. However, stone being a natural ma- terial, is prone to erosion by the ele- ments, even the strongest castles, which were designed to withstand cannon and gunpowder, eventually succumbed to rain. Stone is porous, rain will eventually penetrate and weaken it, algae will penetrate into the softened stone and grow there. This happens to Headstones as well, that is why there are so many shabby and discoloured memorials in our cemeteries. Its an expensive job, having these sandblasted and relet- tered to restore them to their former glory. Well now there is a material that will do everything stone does, and more, without any of the drawbacks. Traditional materials are gradually being replaced by newer man made materials because they are cheaper to produce, more durable, are light but strong, and require less maintenance. Just as uPVC was found to be an ex- cellent alternative to wood in win- dows, Fibreglass Composite is the ideal alternative to stone Headstones. . A Composite is a product compris- ing two separate materials, usually a Fibreglass Matting and an Epoxy, which when combined, results in a material with a very high strength to weight ratio. In other words, it is very light but extremely strong. Over the past 40 years, fibreglass has re- placed wood in the building of boats, big and small. Sitting in water all year round, exposed to all kinds of weather and still as good as when bought new. Fibreglass Headstones have many advantages over stone: -They are Low Maintenance, can be cleaned with warm soapy water, no expensive sandblasting required eve- ry few years. -Stone is porous, Composites are not, therefore Mildew and Algae will not penetrate and discolour. -Durable and permanent. -Strong but light, can be installed almost immediately. -Superb appearance with your choice of graphic & inscription -Will not erode or fade. -Range of colours and effects . -Can be personalised with pictures. -Room for future inscription. -Easy to repair if vandalised or acci- dently damaged. -Less expensive than traditional granite or marble headstones. -Self install option, no special tools or skills required As these Headstones are hollow, they are ideal for use in Cremations. The Ashes can be kept in an urn and the whole lot placed inside the hol- low cavity. Such a Headstone / Cre- mation Urn can be placed anywhere, not necessarily in a graveyard, as a reminder of the deceased. These fi- breglass headstones were designed with the intention of keeping funeral costs down, they look the same and do the same job in a more economi- cal way, without any of the disad- vantages of traditional stone headstones. This is the future, the stone age is over. Ring 0879782890 or log on to www.Fibreglassheadstones.com for more information. Fibreglass Headstones Tipperary Ladies Gaelic Football Notes North Tipperary Sports Partnership and South Tipperary Sports Partner- ship are delighted to announce that the 2013 Tipperary Women’s Mini Marathon will take place in Clonmel on Sunday 29th September at 11am.

Catherina has become an ambassador for the Tipper- ary Women’s Mini Marathon and she stated that she was once again delight- ed to be associated with the event, as she has been since 2010 and that it was wonderful to see so many women out running and jog- ging in Tipperary. Elaine Cullinan, Co-ordinator, North Tipperary Sports Partnership com- mented ‘As always this event is open to female runners, walkers and jog- gers of all abilities and mobility. We had record numbers of 1246 women register for the event last year in Thurles and we would expect to see this grow again this year in Clonmel. Registration is once again both online and postal (details below) and this year we will continue to make a chari- table donation of €200 to the largest group to register that are raising funds for a charitable cause. Check out www.tippminimarathon.ie for registration details and also details of your local Meet and Train or Fit 4 Life running group, where you can train for this event with others in a fun sociable and supportive environment’. Valerie Connolly, Co-ordinator, South Tipperary Sports Partnership com- mented ' It is wonderful to be part of this Women in Sport initiative in Tip- perary as it provides a great opportu- nity for women of all ages to get active and take part in a women's only mini marathon. All finishers will re- ceive a specially designed race medal- lion and goody bag. Spot prizes will also be distributed on the day. The event also provides a great opportuni- ty for participants to raise funds for their own local charities. We hope that this year’s event will build on the success of the previous years.’ All participants will be chip timed so whether running or walking the 10k you will get an accurate time and the event as always is AAI measured and certified. The 2013 Tipperary Mini Marathon is funded through the Irish Sports Coun- cil Women In Sport Programme, and the 2013 committee comprises North Tipperary Sports Partnership, South Tipperary Sports Partnership, Tipper- ary Athletics County Board, Clonmel AC, Clonmel Borough Council, Clon- mel Gardai, South Tipperary Civil Defence and Tipp FM.

  • 15. Tipp Tatler www.tipptatler.ie Prayers: €7.50 Miraculous Novena Other____________ Initials:______Prayers Counselling By Jim O’Shea Anxiety (continued from previous issue) Martha Davis and her colleagues give a simple outline of the three different types of exercise that we should com- bine to obtain optimum results to our mental and physical health, and thus to decreasing our anxiety. They are aerobic/cardiovascular, stretching/flexibility, and toning/strengthening exercises. Com- bining these is the best way to achieve the best results. Aerobic means ‘with oxygen’, and refers to the use of oxygen to generate energy. There are many popular and pleasant aerobic exercises that include walking, running, jogging, cycling, swimming and dancing. Therefore, I can say that I regularly use three of these. Alas, I am now too old to jog or run! These exercises are good for our heart (cardiovascular) and give us more stamina, and help us maintain the proper weight. Stretching and toning exercises help to maintain our muscle power, are good for our joints and keep us flexible. The website Health-and Home-Fitness.com gives some examples of stretching exercises and includes the negatives and positives of these exercises. The slow stretching exercises are very relaxing. They decrease muscle tension and help with circulation. Toning exercises strengthen the muscles. Older people like me must be careful that we do not overdo it and injure our backs. The regularity of the exercise is the essential ingredient in reducing anxiety and stress. It is easy to find excuses for skipping our period of exercise. We can say we are too tired, our time is too limited, it takes too long (togging out, doing the exercise and then showering), I’m too old, I’m too heavy, and so on. Let me put it this way – what is more important, staying healthy, feeling good, losing weight, decreasing anxiety, i.e. SELF-CARE, or cramming in as much work as possible, or lying about for long periods? The effectiveness of exercise in reduc- ing anxiety is greatly increased if com- bined with a good diet. Healthy eating on its own reduces anxiety and stress. A good diet, plenty of exercise, and not being overweight give us a feeling of well-being. Martha Davis says that healthy eating is a learned skill and not something that comes naturally. I think this is probably true. I remember as a child disliking vegetables, and I can recall one of my aunts vainly trying to get me to eat a mixture of mashed carrots and parsnips. Even today, I am not fond of vegetables or salads, but I realise how beneficial they are, and I always have my portions. I must con- fess, however, that I often eat the veg- etable first so that i can ‘enjoy’ the remainder of my dinner. Most morn- ings of the week I make a good smoothie for my breakfast. I use a mix- ture of vegetables and fruit to add some sweetness. I include celery, spinach, a little broccoli, a spoon of flax oil, an orange, some apple, a banana and any other fruit that is around. Series 4, no. 9. Anxiety. The impor- tance of nutrition. How caffeine in- creases anxiety. We are all familiar with the food pyra- mid, which shows the percentages of the different types of food that we should combine - a lot of vegetables and less red meat. You might be inter- ested in the website ‘images for images of the food pyramid’, which give a whole variety of food pyramids in col- our. If we are anxious about our health the knowledge that a good diet will im- prove it and prevent some complaints will in itself relieve anxiety. We know that a diet high in fruits and vegetables and whole grains may reduce risk for stroke and other heart diseases, and offers some protection against certain cancers such as mouth, stomach and colon cancers. Nutrients are essential to our good health. We are told that we need 40 nutrients for good health. Vegetables and whole grains are rich in potassium, fibre, vitamin C, folic acid, magnesium, and so on. Overall, we should vary our diet every day. We are encouraged by nutritionists to have different types of fruit and vegetable, plenty of whole grain, have calcium rich foods such as low fat milk, yo- ghurt, cottage cheese. Try to avoid saturated fats and opt for poly or mo- nounsaturated fats and oils. Have fish a few times a week and go easy on red meat. If you wish to get more informa- tion on food in the context of reducing stress, consult the workbook (chapter 19) compiled by Martha Davis and her colleagues.

Novena to St Anthony O holy St. Anthony, gentlest of saints, your love for God and charity for his creatures made you worthy while on earth to possess miraculous powers.

The answer to my prayer may require a miracle; even so, you are the saint of miracles.
