I read four novels during two weeks. Time when I might have been scrolling through social media I spent reading instead. I lost myself in some really great books. Sometimes you really need a phone. I admit to using it for the maps feature, the weather forecast and to check out a couple of opening times. It would have been silly to deprive myself of that. I used my nice camera. I use my Apple watch or phone to check the time so without either I really had no clue. I played a lot of Uno and rummy with the kids.

We always try to play a lot of games on holiday but I know there were times when we were chilling by the lake or in a cafe when I might have been tempted to look at social media. Instead I got thrashed on the ongoing card game tally and enjoyed every second of it. I have some really great social media friends. It just made me realise how many great connections I have with people and that although they are sometimes purely online friends they are an important part of my life.

I was more able to relax and concentrate. I actually did a difficult jigsaw puzzle over the course of a few evenings in our mountain retreat. This is something I would never ever contemplate doing in my non-holiday life. I would see it as time wasted. It was so relaxing and therapeutic. My brain space was freed up. Being able to empty my head from the constant noise of social media and emails just gave me time to think.

I had some great ideas for blogs, thoughts about my house, career and life in general. I want to make changes going forward. This was only a two-week detox but it was enough to show me that although I love social media and the opportunities, friendship and fun it has given me, I need to be careful.

Without realising it, I am giving it a lot of my time, energy and brain power. I decide when I look and those who need to con tact me urgently will pho ne me Check emails at set tim es in a day Read a book, not my soc ial media feeds, before I sleep Put my phone in anothe r room rather than in my back pocket where it usually lives Have one tab at a time open on my computer so I can focus better on the task I am doing Avoid mindless scrolling. Time vanishes. Decide how many minutes I can inv est in reading social me dia at that point in time and stick to it Define my work space.

When I leave that area I stop working. Psycho logically I think that will help me to switch off and relax. Are you too dependent on tech? Do you need to reduce your screen time? Good luck!

In little more than the dim light of candles, the most succulent fruits grow — early, forced rhubarb. Connoisseur of this delicacy, Rob Bullock discovers more. The rhubarb triangle In a nine-square-mile area between Wakefield, Morley and Rothwell in West Yorkshire a few miles south of our area is grown something special, delicate sweet stems of forced rhubarb.

Towards the end of winter, the pretty fuchsia-pink forced rhubarb, which has been long prized for its subtle flavour and sweetness, is picked by hand, by candlelight, so that the delicate stems are not turned green and hard by photosynthesis before being sent all around the world. Although it is forced inside, it is a plant that likes a cold climate.

Rhubarb grows best on hills, so most of the barns have to be high up to allow the plants to enjoy the freezing cold - the rhubarb tubers are only activated when it gets really cold. For growers, climate change is a worry though. The rhubarb produced in this way is much more delicate in flavour than its cousins that are grown outside, and far less fibrous in texture than field grown rhubarb.

Because of this, the sweet and delicious stalks are sought after by dessert chefs at the best restaurants. Yorkshire climate The cold, damp climate of West Yorkshire seems to appeal to the plant which originally hails from Siberia. Before that, they are allowed to mature in fields before they are brought inside for forcing. Tenderness because.

Rhubarb is not a fruit at all but technically a vegetable, rhubarb is eaten as a fruit, cooked mainly in desserts such as pies, puddings and crumbles. In the late 19th century the vegetable was at the height of its popularity with forced rhubarb being sent daily to the London markets of Spitalfields and Covent Garden as well as being exported across the channel to France. Up until the s, there was even a special overnight express train that whisked rhubarb from Ardsley station to awaiting locations during the forced rhubarb season, which lasted from January until just after Easter.

Rhubarb was one of the few options available during rationing throughout the war. But the popularity of the vegetable started a decline in post war years as the British public was exposed to more exotic alternatives that were shipped from abroad. The rhubarb business slowed towards the end of the twentieth century but has recently enjoyed a revival especially since gaining protected status in , putting it in the same category as Parma ham or feta cheese.

She was the mother of Mercury, the messenger god, and sacrifices were offered to him on the first day of the month we know as May.

This is a traditional northern celebration as folk would decorate their horses, cattle and houses with sprigs of rowan tree leaves. The purpose of this was to prevent witches, fairies and other evil spirits from harming the house, the people and their livestock. May Day Aside from in ancient Rome, the beginning of May has been a cause for celebration in lots of countries and cultures, not least our own, with many different events and ceremonies happening across the British Isles.

More details on www. Reading is as important for babies and young children as for older children and can lay solid foundations for later life. Feature Writer and author of seven books for children, Rob Bullock, finds out more. Reading, sharing stories, talking and even singing every day to your child can help their development in many ways. Reading and sharing stories can help your child to get to know sounds, discover words and language, and to develop important early literacy skills.

As they get older children can discover a world of adventure that can stimulate their imaginations. Studies show that children who are read to regularly, achieve better results at school and gain a solid platform for securing a fulfilling career. What difference can parents make? Parents who read to their children can make a massive difference! Reading to your baby from birth, even for just a few minutes a day, gives them the comfort of hearing your voice and increases their exposure to language. Building vocabulary and understanding Listening is just as important as actual reading.

When they hear stories, children are exposed to a wide range of words. This helps them build their own vocabulary and improve their understanding as they listen.

This is vital as they start to read on their own. Words and pictures The association between images and words is a good way of getting your child interested in reading. Most children are interested in dinosaurs and some can even spell complicated names like Diplodocus before their own names.

Although not originally intended for very young children, my book, Noah Ramsbottom and the Cave Elves is always popular, not because of the entire story but because Noah visits a dinosaur world. Keeping them interested As children start to learn to read at school and get older, you can still make a big difference, you can keep them interested in books by reading yourself, regularly taking them to the library, encouraging them to join school book clubs, having books in the house and even by attending author events at your local library or book shop.

Try finding out what interests your child, help them to find books that will be engaging and fun, and spend time reading together the books they bring home from school. Even a small amount of support can make the world of difference! Spending quality time sharing and enjoying a book with their child regularly is pure gold dust. It is a key factor in nurturing the development of their emotional literacy.

They explore the world through stories and learn empathy, resilience, acceptance, love and respect to name a few. And the stories themselves, of course.

  4. I particularly recall her reading L. I have no doubt that my love of reading and storytelling during the rest of my childhood and throughout my adult life - was established in those early years of being read to. When I first started teaching I used to let each child read a section of the book we were studying. It gave reading practice but was sometimes painful to hear and not very stimulating for those listening. After that, I always read to the class myself because this was more likely to grab their attention.

    I also realised that some books work well when read aloud while others despite a lot of literary merit do not. I had to substitute my Lancashire accent for a Yorkshire one but it kept the kids awake and weekend arrived more swiftly! Illustrated by Kristen M Bullock. Head lice are sneaky, quick-footed, and can be difficult to spot. They're very small whitish or grey-brown insects that range from the size of a pinhead to the size of a sesame seed. These nit combs emit a small electrical current to kill head lice.

    You can also look for egg cases nits on wet hair, and some children get a rash on the back of their neck or behind their ears. The only way to be sure someone has head lice is to find a live louse by combing their hair with a special fine-toothed comb. If your child does have nits, check the rest of the family, and then use one or more of the following methods. Repeat, daily until you can no longer find any evidence of lice.

    If your child has short to medium hair, this might be all you need to do but be prepared to make it a daily habit for at least two weeks. Chemical treatments There are numerous treatments on the market. The stronger ones claim to kill lice and eggs within minutes. Others need to be left on overnight or only kill the live lice, not the eggs. A pharmacist can advise you about the treatments available if you're not sure which is best for you or your child.

    Registered Charity No. Today Lancaster and District Heritage Group are a growing group of more than 40 active members with a large following through our social media platform and web site. In September LDHG took their first steps into investigative archaeology when they planned and carried out a six-day excavation on Quay Meadow, an area of public land behind Lancaster Maritime Museum.

    We were supported by several other organisations. The Quay Meadow excavation was said at the time to have been one of the most important excavations in Lancaster the last 50 years and produced small finds and the remains of two substantial Roman buildings and a section of Roman road. The site revealed medieval and later buildings over Roman period archaeology, and the project provided a wide range of field skills enhancement for the Group members. Plans are being made to carry out further work.

    The opportunity to take part in the dig was extended to members of the wider community, and this chance was taken up by 14 people including some from Barrow and Liverpool. The results of the dig are now being written up in a report. Alongside archaeology, LDHG also takes part in many other activities including speaking at conferences. LDHG are also very active in heritage research, and over the past 18 months, members of the group have researched and produced four booklets covering various aspects of the influence of the Williamson family on the growth of the city.
