Dear Sixtyplusurfers 

The Healing Power of Spinach



Hi all, I wanted to tell other readers about the healing powers of spinach!

I tend to be a bit anaemic and take an iron tablet every day, but I used to find this wasn't really enough and still tended to get a few dizzy spells. So I mentioned this to my pharmacist when I picked up my usual packet of iron tablets and she suggested I eat spinach.

Nothing to lose I thought, so I started adding it into salads, putting it in with the chicken, adding it into omelettes and cooking it up with a bit of garlic as a vegetable with dinner.

I've got quite used to it now and I find it tastes very nice.

And I'd definitely say it's really helped. I still take my one iron tablet every day, to stop me getting anaemic, but I have had no more dizzy spells since adding the spinach to my diet. So I would thoroughly recommend it. Especially if you have an iron deficiency.

I buy a bag every week at my supermarket, it's not expensive. And I'd rather eat the spinach than take more tablets or extra medicine.

Popeye was right! Spinach has definitely got super powers!

Sandra Hazelmere, London


Dear Sandra
 
Thank you for passing on your handy health tip. That's great to hear that eating spinach makes you feel less dizzy, and so much better than taking too many tablets.

We'd love to hear from other readers with their health tips.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

When my son asked me what I would like for my birthday, I suggested a pair of slippers as my old ones were getting worn out.

These fun cat slippers he bought me were a great surprise! They're lovely and soft and make me smile every time I wear them.

Much better than my boring old slippers and perfect as I love cats!

Miranda Chisholm, Kent

Dear Miranda
 
I do like your slippers. Your son has great taste and a good sense of humour.

We'd love to hear about other presents that readers have been given.

Melissa Braiden, Letters & Admin

 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

I really enjoy reading Sixtyplusurfers and entering your competitions. I look forward to each issue every month.

I particularly like reading the letters page and seeing what other readers have written and looking at their photographs.

I also find the Fashion & Accessories page really useful. As it's great to find out about fashion trends and things to wear.

Keep up the good work.

Lesley Fisher, Edinburgh

Dear Lesley
 
Thank you for your kind words. We're delighted to hear you are enjoying our website.

We hope you enjoy our new May issue.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

Over recent years I have been increasingly shopping online. I work during the day and the convenience it offers saves me so much time and money. It also seems to save me from impulse shopping.

After a recent overseas holiday, I arranged for my groceries to be delivered the next day. They arrived on time and the helpful driver assisted me with putting it all into my kitchen. It meant that I didn't have the worry of going to the shops when I was tired and I had all the food I needed to get me started after my break.

I wouldn't do it all the time. I use my local shops a lot as well. As it's good to get exercise and gives me the chance to take a walk. But it's fantastic that such a service is available and so good to use when you are just too tired to do the shopping.

If you hunt around you can also find great clothing bargains online. I've bought some amazing tops and dresses from the comfort of my own home. And I've been able to shop around and get the cheapest products at the touch of a button.

But be warned, it can get addictive. And I do like to support my local shops too. So don't be afraid, you'll find some great bargains if you shop online, and save such a lot of time.

Debbie Bingham

Dear
Debbie

Thank you for telling us about shopping online. The grocery stores offer a great service. There are also some very good websites for clothes, gifts and presents.

We'd love to hear from other readers about bargains and things they have bought online.

Melissa Braiden, Letters & Admin
 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

Thank You

Countdown from Esdevium Games

What a lovely surprise! I'm so pleased. The Countdown board game arrived today and it is really fantastic. I can't wait for my husband to come home so we can start playing.

We have both been fans of Countdown for a long time and the game is so authentic.

Once again, thank you very much. I have also written to the sponsors, Esdevium Games to thank them.

Lily Isherwood

Dear Lily

Thank you for letting us know you received the Countdown board game. We hope you enjoy playing it with your husband.

Thank you also for sending a thank you letter to Esdevium Games.

 Win an Irrigatia Weather
        Response Solar
     Automatic Watering
  System for Your Plants


Irrigatia Weather Response Solar Automatic Watering System for Your Plants


This month we've got a brand new competition on the Sixtyplusurfers
Chat & Socialise page. We're giving away an Irrigatia Weather Response Solar Automatic Watering System for Your Plants worth £79.95.

How to Enter the Competition

For your chance to win
the Irrigatia Weather Response Solar Automatic Watering System for Your Plants, just tell us why you would like to win the prize in the 'Gardening' Group on the  Sixtyplusurfers Chat & Socialise page.

Your photograph might be a picture showing the beauty of spring with pretty flowers, sheep, children playing in the garden, birds, wildlife, blossom on the trees or something atmospheric.

For example you might like to win the Irrigatia Weather Response Solar Automatic Watering System because you have a lovely garden with beautiful flowers and plants that you have been nurturing and caring for, but you are planning a cruise or a long holiday and you don't want to worry about watering them or have no one to tend them while you are away.

Perhaps you are busy during the day, working or caring for grandchildren and you don't have time to go outside regularly to water your favourite plants as much as you would like.

Win an Irrigatia Weather Response Solar Automatic Watering System

Maybe you are currently using a hose or sprinkler and wasting water with over watering or relying on an irregular water supply.

It could be that you are planning a Summer garden party or family gathering and you want your favourite plants or flowers to look their best in the run-up to your preparations.

Perhaps you have hanging baskets or vegetables that are growing in containers which are hard to reach with a watering can and this would save you balancing on ladders, or back breaking watering.

You might have a beautiful garden, but the heavy work and regular watering is getting too much for you and this would enable you to spend more time resting up and enjoying your garden.

Win an Irrigatia Weather Response Solar Automatic Watering System

It might be something that you need for a roof garden, balcony or allotment that you aren't able to get to as much as you like. And it would save you time and energy.

Or how about a special present for a much loved partner, relative or keen gardener that you know would put it to good use?

We'd also love to see some pictures of your gardens, things you have planted and how you intend to use your Irrigatia. Please include photographs with your entry if you can!


Don't forget to post your entry in the
'Gardening' Group on the  Sixtyplusurfers
Chat & Socialise page.

The best entry will win the
Irrigatia Weather Response Solar Automatic Watering System.

For full details about how to enter the competition click on the
Our Friends page.

Join the
Chat & Socialise page

To enter the competition you must be a member of the Chat & Socialise page, so if you haven't already done so, don't forget to sign up and join in. It's FREE OF CHARGE!

Readers' Letters

Sixtyplusurfers Star Letter 

  Dear Sixtyplusurfers




Inspired by the Ceramic Bird Feeder from Rainbow Flowers & Gifts, I would like to write you a letter about my pets.

My budgie is called Bluebell and my cute cat is called Lucky. I absolutely adore them!

Here is a picture of them both together.

I have always kept pets, even as a child, therefore my wife and I wanted to continue that tradition with our three children.

Our cat story

We were shopping one day with our children, when our eldest daughter spotted an advertisement saying "Kittens for Sale." There and then, my wife and I decided to put the shopping bags in the car and drive to the given address.

We were greeted with the strong smell of kitten biscuits and children running frantically around their house. We got to choose a kitten and we chose the smallest kitten of the litter, who was anxiously peeping out from behind the Television.

We've had him for six years now, and he is no longer a tiny kitten!

Our budgie story

A few months ago, my daughters were walking home, when they spotted something blue and white fly past them. It landed in the tree opposite our house. They crossed the road to get a closer look, and to their amazement, it was a strikingly beautiful blue budgie.

They were there for ages, enticing her with bird seed and an old fishing net (from our many happy holidays rock pooling at the beach). Eventually, the bird hopped into the net and they carried her into the house. From then on, we've kept her in a hamster cage - but surprisingly she's actually very happy living in it!

Goldfish

We also have a variety of goldfish, which have come from many different shops and people. Our most recent surprise was when we were visiting a shop and a man approached us with half a water bottle.

He gave it to us for free and inside were a guppy and a goldfish. Happily, we took it home and the fish are now living in a fish tank. We are still adding to our pet collection !

I hope you've enjoyed reading this letter, as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

Philip Underwood, Hayes

Dear Philip

Thank you for telling us about your pets and sharing your photograph. Lucky and Bluebell are gorgeous. You're so lucky they all get along, together with your goldfish and guppy.

We are delighted to let you know that you are the winner of this month's Star Letter Competition. Your prize is a Box of Divine Chocolates and a Divine Chocolate Recipe Book.

Memories

I leaned against the gate. It was the same gate that my friends and I played on all those years ago. It was a very old gate. It was rusty, and in need of a coat of paint. True, it did have a newish catch on it, but I suspect it was there to keep the animals in rather than keeping people out.

I wondered what would happen if I pushed the gate open. I was quite unnerved by just the thought of it, but, taking all my courage, I pushed it open. Not very far, but enough to allow me to squeeze myself through. There, I had done it. But, could I go any further? I remembered when there were cows in the field. They always looked very big and very fierce. They never actually chased us but ...

Having squeezed through, I now took stock and looked all around. Ah! There is was! On my left was a very faint outline of a path. I smiled. This was where my friends and I used to play Hide and Seek amongst the bales of hay. What fun we had, running and hiding round the haystacks, sometimes even climbing on top, but it seemed such a long way down to the ground that we didn't do this very often.

If you continued to walk down the path, you came upon a small lake. We watched ducks and swans gliding up and down. Any spare food we had would bring them up to the side of the lake, and they quacked and quacked until we fed them.

Sometimes, there were sheep in the field, but they always ran away when they saw us. I squeezed back through the gate and made my way up to the house. There used to be hens and goats here. I was allowed to pick my very own egg and have it dished up for breakfast the very next day. At Easter, I could paint my egg any colour I wanted. Then, all my friends came round with their painted eggs and there would be a prize for the most colourful one. Now, I walked slowly to the picnic area, right at the side of the lake.

I remembered having a picnic with some of my very special friends. Big Ted, Pink Pig and all my dolls. I grew up with most of them, and they were very special to me, and all the time they were with me, they never once complained or disagreed with me. I wanted to have a picnic right there and then, but I knew that if sat down, I would really struggle to get to my feet again.

With a big sigh, I reached for my walking sticks and began the long walk back again, I knew I would never come here again. But I would always have these memories.

Barry Winters, Devon

Dear Barry

Thank you for sharing your lovely story. What beautiful descriptions.

  Handy Tips for Drying Clothes
 

If you're like me and often leave your washing until the last minute and need to wear your favourite dress urgently, then try some of these easy ways to help you dry your clothes faster. They're also great if you don't have a tumble dryer.

Use the high spin setting on your washing machine so that as much water as possible is removed from your clothes before they’re ready to dry. The increased energy used is nowhere near as much as using a tumble dryer.

Line drying is always best if the weather is warm, but if it's rainy, then drying them on racks and clothes horses are the next best thing. Take the time to hang things up individually, allowing space in between each item. If you use a drying rack or clothes horse that has individual bars, hang things you need to wear urgently over two bars instead of one, so more air can circulate around them.

Position your drying rack near a radiator if you can. Or put it near an open window if it’s a warm day. Check to see how things are drying as often as possible and move them around so they get more contact with the air. Pay attention to pockets, underarm areas and cuffs as these areas are the hardest to dry.

If you put clothes over a radiator, be sure to take them off as soon as they're dry, otherwise you’re wasting heat around them home and giving it a barrier.

And if you're really desperate to get things dry quickly, use a hair dryer. Rotate the item of clothing as much as you can, airing out the pockets, sleeves and collars as you go. You don't need to use a high setting, warm is fine. It’s all about air flow rather than heat. Happy drying!

Samantha Jones, West Midlands

Dear Samantha

Thank you for sending in your handy tips for getting your clothes dry quickly. That's perfect for a rainy day or when you're in a hurry to get your washing finished.

We'd love to hear other readers' handy tips.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

Happiness


I hope you like my poem about the things that make me happy

Happiness is a cup of coffee on a cold day
Stroking my cat and hearing him purr
Dipping my toes in the frothy sea
Breakfast in bed
And chocolate cake for tea

Happiness is a day at the races
With champagne and strawberries
And a win on the horses

Watching a movie
With all my favourite film stars

Happiness is finishing a jigsaw

Reading a good book
And relaxing on a sun lounger
A day off work
And a holiday to look forward to

All these things can make me happy
And plenty of hugs from my favourite hubby!

Margaret Stone, Edinburgh


Dear Margaret
 
Thank you for writing your lovely poem. We'd love to hear what makes other readers happy.

Jenny Itzcovitz, Editor

 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

I work in a shop and get really frustrated when customers try on clothes and leave them inside out, on the floor for me to pick up.

I also don't like it when customers put items in the wrong places, the wrong way round and in the wrong section of the shop.

I hope that when you are shopping you spare a thought for those that are working in the shops you are visiting and take a moment or two to put things away considerately.

However, I do enjoy my job and helping people choose nice clothes. It can be very satisfying when they are happy with the things they have bought and come back again.

Linda Richmond

Dear Linda

Thank you for writing in and telling us about your experiences of working in a shop and the things that frustrate you.

It's lovely to hear you enjoy your job and you find it satisfying when people are happy with the things they have bought.

Jenny Itzcovitz, Editor

 

Dear Sixtyplusurfers



Hello everyone, I'm not much of a gardener, but I am delighted with some of the spring colour I've been getting in my front garden. As it's exposed to the sun, I seem to get the best display here.

I'm not sure of all the names of the flowers. I think the one at the top is an azalea. We get lots of these at the front of our house, and I like their deep shade of red.



These pretty bluebells also give a lot of colour and we have lots of these growing by the wall at the front of our house. I love the different shades of purple and their bright cheery shapes.



But my favourite is the Camellia. We have a big bush of them by our front door. They are such a pretty shade of pink. But they don't seem to last long.


I hope you like my pictures.

Mike Turner, Coventry

Dear Mike
 
Thank you for sharing your lovely photographs. You certainly have some beautiful flowers in your front garden.

We'd love to see pictures of things that other readers have grown in their gardens.

Kitty Jacobs, Letters & Admin

   Sixtyplusurfers Competition 

   Win
a Kobo Glo
      HD eReader


Win a Kobo Glo HD eReader


Sixtyplusurfers has teamed up with eReading company, Kobo to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a market-leading eReading device, the Kobo Glo HD.

With Kobo’s recent study revealing that the 45 age category are driving the digital reading revolution, the Glo HD allows you to be a part of that in comfort.

The Kobo Glo HD offers the best in high definition front-lit displays, so if you’re reading in a dark or dimly-lit area, you can do so without straining your eyes

The Kobo Glo HD offers the best in high definition front-lit displays, so if you’re reading in a dark or dimly-lit area, you can do so without straining your eyes. While the anti-glare screen means you can enjoy your favourite pastime even in the sunniest weather. Not only that, but with 11 fonts and 48 different font sizes on the six-inch screen, you can adjust the setting so that you can read in a manner which suits you and your lifestyle.

Its crisp and clear clarity – just like ink on paper – also means you can read in comfort, but have the added bonus of being able to carry thousands of books with you on a device which is thin and lightweight. In fact, Kobo’s study showed that the world’s most avid readers read up to 20 hours a week, or three hours a day, so the Kobo Glo HD’s up to two month battery life will be a God-send.

The Kobo Glo HD is perfect for taking with you while you are out and about

You can carry all your books around with you, no matter where you read. Notably, Kobo’s research went on to reveal that 39% read in coffee shops, 22% read in the bath and 32% read on public transport, making it much easier for you to take your whole library when you do.

The Glo HD will also help you when it comes to finding your next book. Most readers (58%) get their new book recommendations from friends or family which is not much of a surprise. However, almost a quarter (24%) get their next recommendation based on the algorithms from eReading devices. So pay attention to what the Kobo Glo HD suggests – it may just turn out to be your new favourite book!

For more information please visit the website at www.kobo.com

Eisberg Chardonnay Alcohol Free Wine

Eisberg is made in exactly the same way as your favourite wine, but with one difference. At the end of the process the alcohol is gently removed using one of the world’s most advanced processes, leaving all of the flavours of the wine, but none of the alcohol.

The new Eisberg Sauvignon Blanc is an exciting addition to the range produced by Eisberg’s winemakers that includes the juicy and light Rosé, a full-bodied Chardonnay and a smooth Cabernet Sauvignon. With something for everyone, Eisberg is the wine you’ll remember.
