The Group meet monthly in Long Eaton, with a varied and interesting programme of talks, competitions, news and writing activities. Members were told Yvonne Mann passed away on 20th of December Bach Flower Remedies help to clear emotional blocks to ill health such as depression and anxiety, stimulating the potential for self- healing and freeing the system to fight disease and stress. The 38 Remedies are based on the work of Dr Bach who became disillusioned with the side effects of drugs and turned his research to the healing power of nature, discovering how to heal patients through treating the emotional root causes of disease, rather than the symptoms.
At the close of her talk Victoria answered members questions and then Sue Cox gave a vote of thanks. Thirty four members enjoyed their annual festive meal and Mike Ronan was declared Sportsman of the Year.
It is particularly destructive in winter as depleted colonies do not have enough bees huddling together to keep warm. Dr Alan Bowman from the University of Aberdeen said: This could make them self destruct. With appropriate support from industry and a rigorous approval process, chemical-free medicines could be available in five to ten years. This excellent work by UK scientists will keep our hives healthy and bees buzzing. Our training courses and the practical tuition devote a lot of time to coping with such parasites, so this research break-through may be very welcome.
Scientists now need to target a gene with the specific characteristics that are perfect to force the Varroa to self destruct. Tests by other scientists have shown the treatment can be added to hives in bee feed. The bees move it into food for their young, where the Varroa hides. In there have been 21, beekeepers, andcolonies. For those who think having lots of buses is a good thing, let me enlighten you with a story of just what happens- big bus company Stagecoach, who have just reported increased revenues across all its divisions, were allegedly not satisfied with the profit they were making from the service to a string of villages in Cornwall, so they withdrew it.
Markeaton Brook | Revolvy
A local businessman set up a replacement service, thinking he could make it pay, so Stagecoach put a bus in front of it, killing it off, then withdrew it. End result- string of villages with no bus service. The latest move in the bus war between Wellglade and Premiere Travel is that the Wellglade subsidiary Kinchbus started its no. Remember what that American commerce guru said?
And to show you how it is treated Trentbarton think it is "like another shop" - how misguided can you get? A further hindrance to the effectiveness of the bus service is that Erewash Borough Council offered free parking in Long Eaton again in December, showering more private cars on the roads again, causing choking congestion as in previous years- the cost of this has not been estimated, though the loss in Council revenues is known.
It is a pointless exercise, as the survey of businesses that was done a couple of years ago showed that it does not increase trade in town shops. Why not have free buses? At least that would serve a useful purpose. They don t seem to be interested. The path is unlevel and the mud on the grass verge is up to six inches deep due to cars continual parking on it. The Council were supposed to be putting bollards in to stop cars parking but nothing has been done.
My wife who is in her 70 s fell and so did my two year old grandson. It would be so much better for the public if it was tarmaced. But when will it be repaired? Each party outlines in its manifesto the policies it would implement if it were to win enough seats to form a government.
Last May no party achieved it. Hence the coalition between two parties who, naturally enough, had outlined some similar policies and some different ones. It would clearly be impossible for both the Conservative and the Liberal Democrat parties to implement all that each promised -- although Mr Steward seems to have expected this impossible scenario to have come to pass. Compromises have been -- and will be - necessary.
As a certain TV meerkat would say, "Simples! Are we supposed to know something about Mr Steward other than that he appears to believe in miracles? Spill the beans, John. We grown-ups are more than aware of this, certainly during the Blair years of government, when the electorate and even the Opposition were regularly deceived.
The present Coalition Government is being used as a convenient excuse to backtrack on promises made when canvassing for our vote. Political candidates will say anything to gain our support, however irresponsible this may be. Nothing much has changed, except this has become more blatant in recent years.
The sign off at the end of my January column: So I thought I would make up for this omission by including him in my message! There was no hidden agenda I assure you and I am not an acquaintance of his.

Well the best description is that I m an ordinary citizen who has been around a long time and has experience of the world of business and of politics.

The local government settlement is helping those most reliant on grants. Six months ago Mr Pickles wrote to all councils calling on them to throw open their files to make local government spending more transparent and show waste is being eradicated.
The call for greater transparency includes publishing details of senior pay, councillor expenses, minutes of meetings, and any useful frontline service data of interest to residents or entrepreneurs.
In addition it is keeping a close watch on councils, logging progress on a public timeline on its website. A code of practice is due to be published shortly. Communities Secretary Eric Pickles said: They should also be willing to show senior and middle management salaries, councillor expenses, job recruitment and minutes of council meetings.
