Uke icon   BURRUM HEADS UKULELE GROUP  (B.H.U.G.)

.

The cold weather has chilled fingers to the bone! Let's hope it doesn't continue for too long. We've got to keep strumming!

Our list of songs has increased to 526. It's amazing how many songs we all know, or are familiar, with when we start counting. Including those we learnt in childhood, such as nursery rhymes, the number would be well over a thousand. Well, maybe we can't sing many of them, but we can recognise the tune.

Sometimes when we mention a song title and ask if any one knows the song, the answer is usually NO?! But once the song is sung, there is a collective "Oh yeah, I know that one." It's wonderful to know that we can store music in 'our grey matter' for who knows how long and then bring it up front to enjoy in future times. Music can give us endless pleasure, and to be able to play a ukulele and sing along does just that.  Happy strumming.

Line dancing logo  COUNTRYMOON BOOTSCOOTERS  -  BURRUM HEADS

Ladies from Burrum Heads and surrounding areas are still enjoying dancing to the beat every Monday afternoon in the Community Hall from 1.30 - 3.30pm for a cost of $10.

We are missing some of our favourite ladies through illness or injuries. We wish Bev, Dawn and Barb speedy recoveries.
Some comments from our dancers -

  • Why walk when you can dance!
  • Exercise your body and your mind and have fun doing it!
  • Get into Tulsa Time and take a stroll down Alamo Alley. You might just run into Sweet Caroline and have a go at  Boot Scooting Boogie!
  • My balance has improved and line dancing keeps the brain going and I love the music!!

    So come along and join us for two hours of dance, music, fun and laughter.

                                 Enquiries to Annie 0435191825

    Look forward to dancing with you -

           BURRUM HEADS GIRL GUIDES   

  

We are just about at the end of another term of Guiding. It's been a busy one with a variety    of activities and badges being earned. We participated in the Burrum Heads Anzac Day service and march.
Hosted a Mother's Day High Tea for our mothers, grandmothers and carers, with lots of tasty treats, played some games and showed them a slide show of our past year’s events. We've sold all our Guide biscuits.

The girls played tennis after successfully building their own tennis net using their knot and rope knowledge. On cooking night, the girls practiced their cutting, grating and serving skills making  delicious rice paper roles and fruit salad.
Nature night saw the creation of a fabulous range of pine cone owls. A host of simulated injuries like a snake bite, broken bones and cuts were treated on First Aid night.

The making of an emergency stretcher and carrying a patient, showed ingenuity and the value of team work. This week we will enjoy having a camp fire and song night.

Our aim of these types of activities is for the girls to learn valuable skills and have fun in the process.

Regards,

Julie (Murumba) - 0438 790 327

  .hand drawn craft elements resiz    BURRUM HEADS MONDAY CRAFTERS

It seems incredible that for 25 years a group of ladies in Burrum Heads have been meeting weekly to enjoy each others company, share craft skills and be charitable, knitting or crocheting for those in need. July has seen some of us learning from Jackie how to paint in watercolours. Coming up in the next few months is ‘inspiration in crochet’ and ‘making a fabulous necklace from denim and lace’.

If you are new in town we meet between 8.30 and 9am on Monday till 11am in the Community Hall.

                       Cheers …..  Jillian

JUST REMINDING YOU AGAIN!  THINK ABOUT ENTERING YOUR GARDEN IN ONE OR MORE CATEGORIES IN THE GARDEN COMPETITION…TO BE JUDGED  WEDNESDAY  29th AUGUST……AND THE SPRING FLOWER SHOW TO BE HELD ON 8th SEPTEMBER AT THE COMMUNITY HALL, HOWARD.

REMEMBER,  GARDENS IN HOWARD, PACIFIC HAVEN, TORBANLEA, BURRUM HEADS AND TOOGOOM AREAS ARE  ELIGIBLE TO  ENTER, AND THE FLOWER SHOW IS OPEN TO ANYONE WHO WISHES TO ENTER.  DETAILS ON OUR SCHEDULES. IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN ONE, PHONE SECRETARY BARB. 4129 4659.. OR  PRES.  JAN  4129 0938

CATEGORIES in the Garden Competition  include  sections for smaller parts of a garden, as well as whole garden areas, so there may well be some part of your garden that you would like to enter.

In the Flower Show,  there are Sections for Roses, Cut Flowers, Hanging Baskets, Potted Plants, Orchids, Floral Art, Fruit and Vegetables and  much more….How would you like to enter the Decorated Shoe section,  or the Photography with a great Skyscape photo? 

Everything I read about Epsoms Salts indicates that “ It is almost impossible to use too much Epsom salt in your garden. Magnesium sulphate is pH neutral, so it won't harm your soil. The crystals break down into water, magnesium, and sulphur – three components which are beneficial in some way to most plants.”

“ We’ve all seen how our plants and seedlings wilt when we move them from a small pot to a larger one, from indoors to outside, or from greenhouse to ground. Try feeding transplants with Epsom salt once they’re in their new environment to help injured roots overcome transplant shock. Remember to add a layer of soil on top of salt sprinkled in holes so roots don’t come into direct contact with these concentrated minerals right away.”

“Not only does it help roses to produce larger blossoms in greater numbers, many successful rosarians will agree that magnesium also aids in the growth of new canes from the base of the plant. And of course, Epsom salt increases chlorophyll production meaning darker leaves. For maximum benefit, roses should at the least be fed with Epsom salt at time of planting, then again at the first sign of new growth, and once more when the flowers are in full bloom. Bare root roses may also be soaked in water containing dissolved Epsom salt before planting.”

 If you’ve ever felt envious of European  householders with those wonderful  displays of geraniums  hanging against their walls,  I read that they can’t survive the European winter, and the baskets need to be refilled with new plants each Spring and “cosseted thereafter” !  
Great results though!
