After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.' The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door. Later, a policeman comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.' The policeman was happy and left the shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen doughnuts waiting for him at his door. Then a TD came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept Michael “Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds” Albert Einstein money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The TD was very happy and left the shop. The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen TDs lined up waiting for a free haircut. And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it. I wasn't born a witch. Men like you made me this way.

An airliner is flying across country, when the pilot comes on the PA to announce, "We have some bad news. One of the engines just failed and as a result, we will be delayed by 30 minutes." A bit later, the pilot returns, "We have some more bad news. Another engine just failed, and we will be delayed an additional hour." Another bit later, "Sorry folks, more bad news. A third engine just failed, and so, since we will be running only on the one remaining engine, the flight will be delayed by another two hours." At this point, a disgruntled passenger turns to his neighbor and says, "I sure hope that last engine keeps working or else we'll be up here all night!"

He has been using the rub and is delighted with the result. His pain has almost completely gone and it is very easy to apply with no side effects. Its a fantastic natural product and he is delighted to have found something that helps his condition. Mary Wall, Limerick I hope other players find The Rub as good as my son found it. I am going to try it on more players who have persistent injuries. Thank you Dorrie. Michael, Coach, Cork Dear Mrs Killeen — Thank you for your letter and herbal remedy, which was passed on to me by Sir Alex. Thanks for your interest in Manchester United and Roy in particular. Roy is now back to full fitness with no pain. I will keep your remedy for the future. Rob Swire, Head Physiotherapist Manchester United From Tidy Towns to Edible Towns Here’s an idea for Tidy Towns and similar groups! Why not plant food producing plants instead of just ornamental ones? Indeed anyone can plant fruit trees or bushes in their own gardens. Why not extend it to open public spaces. Think how nice it would be to take a stroll around your town and be able to pick an apple to eat or a few blackcurrants for example. It’s not a new idea, but one that is being carried out successfully in other places as the following article illustrates. Four years ago, a group of residents in the small English town of Todmorden decided to adopt an ambitious goal: by 2018, the whole town would become completely "food independent," growing and raising all of the food it needed itself, through the Incredible Edible Todmorden project. Now, virtually every free piece of land in the town is filled with food, from yards in front of the police and railway stations, to parks, schoolyards, backyards, and traffic roundabouts. Everything grown on public land is free for anyone in town to take. The nonprofit running the project also offers classes in everything from baking bread to pickling. As Liam Hinshelwood, a designer who worked with the nonprofit, wrote in the Guardian, this project is a great example of the type of design we need most, even though it might not seem like design in the traditional sense: “The answer is to design ‘what we do’ rather than to simply design ‘things’. We must design the everyday items of our lives, landscapes, our streets, our buildings, our services and institutions in a way that will foster behaviours that will continue to sustain us.” Source: http://www.good.is/posts/how-to-feeda-town-the-incredible-edible-project SPOTLESS DRAIN CLEANING (052) 9156423 (086) 2550144 Kenneth Wall Dip Hort.

  • 6. Tipp Tatler www.tipptatler.ie Eight Upperchurch Walking Weekend 8th, 9th, 10th November The mountain village of Upperchurch in the heart of Tipperary will hold its eighth annual walking weekend on the 8th, 9th and 10th of November. There will be a choice of over a dozen walks along with several new events, including a public preview and demonstration of Co. Tipperary's first climbing wall by the Mid Tipp Hillwalkers. As well as the walks and climbing, outdoor types will be catered for with a bushcraft display given by the Living Wilderness bushcraft school from Co.Meath who will demonstrate and explain wilderness survival skills such as shelter and fire creation, water filtration, cooking wild food, wood carving and rope making from natural materials. There will also be three organised cycles over 25, 50 and 75 km starting at noon on Sunday organised by the local cycling club. Upperchurch is a place that holds dear the old traditions and set dancing lessons and traditional music sessions will be held over the weekend. There will be displays of arts and crafts and local photography. Walking related stands will include advice on foot problems, massages for the stiff and sore or those who just like to be pampered as well as information and advice on the Camino to Santiago de Compostella in Spain from the Irish Society of the Friends of St. James. There will be a photographic display by Andrew Shakespeare LIPF who will have some special offers during the weekend. Climbing wall The opening of the new €100,000 bouldering and climbing wall is eagerly anticipated by the walking and climbing fraternity in Tipperary. It is eight metres (26 ft) high with different slopes and overhangs and the grips can be adjusted to suit all levels of ability. A viewing balcony opposite and halfway up will give an entertaining spectacle to the casual spectator and those waiting their turn. Six can use the wall at any one time with the help of six helpers holding or “belaying” the safety ropes. The bouldering section can cater for about eight climbers at the time giving a facility which can be used to involve up to twenty people and age does not matter. All levels of fitness are catered for on the walks. For the beginners there is a newly developed, dead level, one kilometre walk beside the village and around the bog which provided turf for the local inhabitants in days gone by. At the other extreme the 18 km Hills of Upperchurch walk on Saturday morning traverses several hills and difficult terrain and should only be attempted by the very fit and experienced. In between there is a large choice of walks, including two road walks on Friday night and several intermediate walks on Saturday and Sunday. Upperchurch has three National Loop walks and they are unusual in that they go mainly through farmland rather than through forestry plantations. There's nothing like a good brisk walk to whet the appetite and the inner walker, climber, bushman or cyclist will be catered for with a bowl of the famous Upperchurch stew after each event.

Sometimes if other postural muscle or the gluteal muscles become weak or overused, the Quadratus Lumborum can become excessively recruited and dysfunctional leading to pain referral into the back and/or buttock. How do you know if your problem is the elusive Quadratus Lumborum? You need to contact your local Chartered Physiotherapist for a full myofascial assessment of your pelvis and torso area. If the “ joker muscle” is the problem, your Chartered Physiotherapist will find trigger points in your quadratus lumborum that stand out from any others tested. By using direct myofascial trigger point release and/or active release techniques, your chartered physiotherapist can deactivate, reduce and finally eliminate the problem, reducing the low back pain and/or the “pain in the butt,”. If you feel you may have an overlooked “ Jokers Back” or are suffering the dreaded “pain in the butt” get your Quadratus Lumborum assessed by your local Chartered Physiotherapist.

Hedgerows are very important for wildlife and over 1500 different insects and 64 species of birds have been found on them. They provide nesting sites for birds and allow creature’s safe access across the countryside, far from the preying eyes of predators. Hawthorn is the main tree species used in our native hedgerows. Their flowers are in full bloom during May and field and roadside hedges are turned a sea of white. Berries called haws are produced in autumn and they have a beautiful blood red colour. They are eaten by birds including redwings and fieldfares By Albert Nolan that are winter migrants. They can also be made into jelly and a delicious jam when mixed with apples. Elderberry is a common shrub of the hedgerow and garden. Starlings love the berries and drop their seeds in new spots with a good dollop of fertilizer. The weight of its berries can often bend the branches and they have many different uses. They can be made into wine and jam. The leaves also contain a natural insecticide and when crushed will deter insects. Elderberry can survive harsh pruning and will send up multiple new shoots each year. If left alone it can grow to over 4 meters but most don’t get above two meters. I think that blackberries are the most welcome berry for people and wildlife. The hedgerow near my house has been greeting me each day with delicious ripe fruit. These are at their sweetest after a cold spell as this brings the sugars to full flavour. There are many ways to enjoy them including blackberry pie, with ice-cream or just eat straight from the hedge. Foxes eat them as part of their autumn diet and bees also drink the juice of the blackberry. Wild fruits of the hedgerow are very important for wildlife and help them to survive the winter months. If you are thinking of sowing a hedge this autumn why not consider one that will benefit birds, insects and butterflies. Tidy towns and residents group could explore their communities and see what hedges are there and put in place measures to conserve them.

Many competitions were entered and some won. We are currently participating in all Macra competitions and intend to continuing to participate in as many as we can going forward. Devilsbit Macra travelled to Francis Cleere`s farm in Moyne two weeks ago for the North Tipperary Round of Beef and Sheep Stock judging There was a great turnout by the club with over twenty members in attendance. The club won all four competitions on the night. Under 23 beef Donie Fitzpatrick, over 23 beef Paudie Meade, under 23 sheep Niall Bourke, over 23. Congrats to all. Last weekend a large contingent of North Tipp members attended the National Conference Ral- ly in Carlow. A great weekend was had. Only two weeks until the Queen Of The Land festival in Tullamore. It is the last big Macra festival of the year and we look forward to supporting Nenagh club member Una Ryan on what promises to be another fantastic weekend.

D.O.D. st teed Co Guaran n your o Saving nance te IT Main IT Maintenance Virus Removal Offsite Backup Counselling Anxiety (continued from previous issue) By Jim O’Shea Series 4, no. 14. Anxiety. Progressive relaxation and visualisation to relieve anxiety. The visualisation of the inner wisdom. I use another effective one, involving a combination of progressive muscle relaxation and a visualisation about the wisdom within us that guides us. The wisdom is visualised as a wise being, which can be a person, an animal, or a presence. I find that different people have different images of the wise being. Some have seen it as an eye, some as their father, some as Jesus and so on. This wise being is your spirit guide, your helper, your guardian angel, whatever you want it to be. Your wise being may be your higher power. This exercise is an excellent way to contact your higher power also. Settle comfortably into the couch. Feel it supporting your back. Place your feet firmly on the floor. Feel the floor supporting you. Now close your eyes and become aware of your body. Notice how your body is feeling right now. First, put your attention on your feet and imagine relaxing them. Breathe into them and feel them relaxing and loosening. Now put your attention on your ankles and the calves of your legs and gently relax them. Feel them relaxing and loosening. Now be aware of your thighs and your hips. Relax the upper part of your legs and your whole pelvic area. Feel them relax and loosen. Gently breathe into the lower part of your body and feel it become very relaxed. Now concentrate on your abdomen and your stomach, the area of your internal organs, and imagine all your organs relaxing, functioning easily, comfortable, healthfully, and smoothly. Relax your chest and relax your shoulders, your arms, your hands, and your fingers. Feel any tension seeping through your fingers and leaving you. Put your awareness in your neck and throat, and imagine this part of your body relaxing completely. If there is any tension in the area, imagine it flowing down through your arms and out your fingers, out onto the floor and down into the earth. And now relax your head, feel the tension leaving your scalp, feel your face loosen, relax your ears, and relax your eyelids. Relax your jaw and feel it loosen. Let your awareness scan through your entire body, from head to toe, from toe to head, and feel your entire body deeply relaxed ...imagine that you can feel life energy flowing smoothly and freely through your entire body. If any area still feels tight or tense, gently release it and feel that energy flowing through it. Take a deep breath, and as you breathe out, release any last holding that you are doing in your body. Feel your body totally relax. Take another deep breath, and as you breathe out, relax your mind. Pretend that your mind is just another muscle in your body that you can now relax. You don’t have to hold on to any thought. You can 'not think'. You can let everything go right now, and let your mind become very quiet and slow, even a little bit out of focus. Just notice your thoughts and release them. Don’t stay focused on your thoughts. Release each thought as soon as you notice it. Imagine your mind being like a still lake or pond, so peaceful there’s not even a ripple on the surface. Take another deep breath, and as you breathe out, move your awareness into a very deep place inside of you.... imagine your are walking down a beautiful path in nature, feeling the peace and beauty of nature around you..As you walk, you gradually feel more and more relaxed and open. And you come into your inner sanctuary, which may be a meadow, a mountaintop, a spot in the woods, a cave, a beach -- anywhere you desire it to be.. This place is a very peaceful, beautiful, safe place for you to be. It’s a very private place. It’s yours. You carry it in your imagination. No one else can come here unless invited. Take a few moments just to be, and feel and see, to be aware of your sanctuary and how it feels to be there...walk around, feel the air, notice the other living beings, the plants or animals or birds. And now find a place in your sanctuary to make yourself very comfortable and at home. You can sit down if you wish.. Jim O’Shea works as a counsellor from Furze, Thurles.
