Wishing everyone a Happy and successful New Year.
Just worth giving a thought to those who don't have it so good .If we can do that little bit to help and towards stopping climate change.
There are pages on this blog. By clicking on the pages link on the right hand side (half way down) you will find a variety of articles. Though there is a strong emphasis on growing vegetables I am keen to receive articles on non political subjects.
Yesterday we had a great Wing Chun session with Mark at my house. New students welcome.
The Internal Martial ARTS
Sessions will be held once a month at my house with Dr Mark Green (Green Tai Chi). In order to know more about Mark see below;
Mark focuses on Wing Chun and also accommodate students who want to learn other aspects of The Taiji system such as large San sau or The Long Form
Separately some of the ex students of Paul Brecher will meet in the area of East Finchley or my house (depending on weather) to practice the syllabus taught by Paul Brecher.
Re training sessions with Mark . I am waiting for new dates from Mark will update when I receive them . Meanwhile students are meeting at my house for practice. We are not currently taking new students unless they are familiar with Kunfa breakouts etc., The interim practice sessions start from 16:30
Students can arrive earlier for tea from 17:30 . The sessions will start at 18:00 until 19:30. There will be a charge for the session. Students will share the cost . Weather permitting we will train in the garden otherwise inside. The focus will be on Wing Chun (Kunfa and other) . For those who prefer to work on aspects of the Taiji system please let Mark know and he will consider options
Good news : Someone maybe building me an improved Bagua Wooden Man as my current is rather makeshift and has some rough bits.
During the intervals between the sessions students meet up to train. For more details please contact me
Grow Your Own
U3A members can join me for sessions at Gordon Road Allotments for sessions on 'Grow Your Own'. These will restart in March
I would also like to use this page to encourage readers to look at the work of St Mungo's and other such charities in helping the homeless. They are grateful for any donations.
I am seeking contributions of non political articles for the blog. They can be sent to my email.
We are collecting clothes for asylum seekers but they must be washed folded and marked according to gender. Page 5: Contains articles by the blog author. The latest is: The secrets of Drip irrigation.
I have added a new page showing some of the paintings of Matan Peles , a resident of a community for adults with learning difficulties on Kibbutz mahanayim, Upper Gailee, Israel.
I recommend looking at these photos which can be purchased online. Every painting purchased is more support for the community. You can see more of his paintings on their url: www.Yahadbagalil.org.il The site is in Hebrew but there is a translate button on the right hand side.
Under this article there is an article explaining The Israeli Kibbutz
Page 8 There is an explanation of the Shaw Trust, a Horticultural Project for Adult with learning difficulties.
A brand new page has been added 'Poems by Mark Shuck' . Anyone who has been troubled by squirrels in the garden will surely relate to the first in a series.
More articles wanted on a variety of subjects. I hold the right to refuse articles I consider
inappropriate and likely to cause offence.
Go to the following link to watch my neices Tanya and Lauren Seifert performing a beautiful performance of Theatrical Pole Dancing

Exciting new addition on Page 7
There is an in depth explanation of how to grow sweet peas by Professor David Young. Having spoken to him has stimulated me to 'Have a Go'.
