Ravensburger Walking World No.1 – South Downs

This beautiful puzzle has been illustrated by Anne Searle who attended the central school of art, London and now works from her studio in Staffordshire.

First in a series highlighting wonderful walking routes, this high quality 1000 piece cardboard jigsaw puzzle measures 70cm x 50cm when complete. Suitable for ages 12 years and up, the puzzle is made from strong premium grade cardboard, with linen finish print to minimise glare on puzzle image.

The images shows two walkers making their way up a steep hill in the South Downs National Park with the Seven Sisters behind them and the Long Man of Wilmington, keeping a check on their progress. Their pathway is packed with flora and fauna, quaking grass, scabious, thistle, yarrow, vetch, and harebell.

Foxgloves and red clover provide nectar for the marbled white, adonis blue, chalkhill blue-pearl bordered fritillary, brimstone butterflies and the six-spot burnet moth. A skylark’s nest is hidden in the grass, a hare and a nightjar take a quick rest and a common lizard peeps out of the undergrowth. They’ll all vanish by the time the walkers reach them!

The South Downs National park stretches from Winchester to eastbourne, through the counties of Hampshire, west Sussex and East Sussex. Over 2000 miles of footpaths, bridleways and byways are just waiting to be discovered.

Ravensburger Walking World No.1 – South Downs is suitable for ages 12 years and up. RRP is £11.58.

Available from www.amazon.co.uk

Reader's Letter

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

I was sitting on the side of the bath chatting to my two mischievous grandsons and the two little tinkers decided to pull me in with them ha ha.

They thought it was absolutely hilarious to see Nana soaking wet!

My pyjamas were dripping, and the more I was trying to get out, the more I kept falling back.

Of course my lovely daughter had to run in and capture the moment on camera.

Ann Nesbitt, Sunderland

Dear Ann

Thank you telling us your funny story, and sending in your fabulous photograph.

You look like such a fun Nana! I’m sure your little grandsons have such a great time with you.

We‘d love to see photographs of other readers with their grandchildren. And hear your amusing stories.

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

Hello, I’m Timmy. I’m the Sixtyplusurfers cat. I love playing with ribbon and string.

Don’t tell Jenny, but I think this might belong to her? It’s mine now. Purrrrrr.

Dinner time now. 

Jenny? Where are you? I’ll have some chicken please ….

Please …. You can have your ribbon back!

Timmy the Cat

Dear Timmy

It’s a deal. You can have some dinner.

I’ll have my ribbon back now. Thank you.

Reader's Letter

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

I love recycling, so I found a great way to use an old box and scrap paper to make a Paper Holder.

I cut the front off an old tights box and covered it with wrapping paper, and a little bit of old ribbon, to cover the joins.

Then I cut some plain paper into strips with crinkly scissors and put it in the box.

I have one of these Paper Holders beside my phone, and now I can write down phone messages and telephone numbers or any other notes when I need to. Family members also use it to write messages.

The box is easily stocked up with more scrap paper whenever it gets empty. And it’s so easy to make.

Diana Harvey

Dear Diana

Thank you for your handy tip. The Paper Holder is a great way to recycle an old box and paper.

We’d love to see crafts and things that other readers have made.

Jenny Itzcovitz, Editor

Reader's Letter

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

I wanted to let other readers know about a recent phone scam.

There is a company who phones up and tells you that your washing machine repair contract has run out and do you want to renew it?

Then they start asking questions about your money and how you want to pay.

I caught them out when they phoned and asked for my daughter, Sarah. And whether her washing machine contract was running out?

“Not possible,” I said. “Sarah is 12 and doesn’t have a washing machine.”

There was a pause, and a click and then the caller hung up!

Don’t fall for this scam. Never give out any bank or personal details to cold callers about washing machines. Or anything else for that matter!

Anna Smith, Manchester

Dear Anna

Thank you for the advice. We get a lot of cold calls and junk mail at Sixtyplusurfers.

I set Timmy, the office cat on them, and they soon leave us alone!

Sixtyplusurfers Competition

Win an Overnight Stay at The Woburn Hotel

With Tickets to the Woburn Abbey Garden Show

Sixtyplusurfers has teamed up with The Woburn Hotel, to offer one lucky reader and a guest the chance to win an overnight stay in a suite at The Woburn Hotel situated in the Georgian village of Woburn.

Staying in a luxurious suite, with a bottle of house Champagne on arrival. You will enjoy a three-course dinner at the hotel’s 2 AA-rosette restaurant, Olivier’s.

In addition, the prize includes one day entry to Woburn Abbey and Garden Show (now in its 10th year) which will once again feature the popular Adam Frost & Pippa Greenwood as well as concessionary rates to visit Woburn Safari Park.

The Woburn Hotel is part of the historic Woburn Abbey Estate; The ancestral home of the 15th Duke of Bedford and his family.

Guests can explore 22 rooms within Woburn Abbey and over 28 acres of award-winning Humphry Repton inspired gardens, all set within 3,000 acres of deer park.

The Woburn Estate has a long and royal history. During the time that she was a Lady-in-Waiting to Queen Victoria, Duchess Anna Maria, wife of 7th Duke of Bedford, popularised the custom of afternoon tea at 5 o’clock, both at Woburn Abbey, her home in Belgrave Square and in the Royal Palaces.

It was traditional at this time to eat a large breakfast, light lunch and late supper. This created a ‘sinking feeling’ in the afternoon and Duchess Anna Maria felt that there was a need for something extra to eat and drink at this time. Afternoon Tea became a popular part of the day and has, indeed remained so ever since.”

The prize is valid to stay on either Friday 21st, Saturday 22nd or Sunday 23rd June 2019 with one day entry to Woburn Abbey Garden show on the Saturday 22nd or Sunday 23rd June 2019.

Star Letter Winner!

Our Star Letter

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

My husband Bill and I often discussed driving Route 66 across USA when we retired.

Several years ago the opportunity finally presented itself, but my husband decided he didn’t feel confident enough to drive in America.

In order to fulfil our dream I made an instant decision to do the driving.

I had never driven abroad before but I am so glad I did.

We planned the trip over a month with no more than 4 to 5 hours driving each day with plenty of stops.

Every 3 or 4 days we stopped for a few days with no driving involved.

Picking up the car and leaving Chicago was nerve wracking but once we hit the open road it wasn’t too bad.

We bought a satnav which was invaluable.

My confidence soared, the further we travelled west, and even driving the final leg into LA with its horrendous traffic was within my capabilities.

Stepping out of my comfort zone was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Audrey Clark, Dundee

Dear Audrey

Thank you for telling us about your fabulous trip to the USA driving Route 66. What an amazing experience, and how exciting.

Your photographs are fabulous. The whole holiday looks like it was a great challenge, and an incredible achievement. 

We are delighted to tell you that you are the winner of the Sixtyplusurfers Star Letter Competition. Your prize is a Lindor Sweet Tree from Giftpup.com

Reader's Letter

Dear Sixtyplusurfers

I love the springtime, when you see the first flowers in bloom.

This pretty camellia bush at the front of my house always make me smile.

This lovely iris appeared in my lawn at the beginning of February. I don’t want to mow the lawn now!

And this sweet little daffodil in my rockery, hopefully is the start of more to come.

I can’t wait to see more flowers appear as the weather warms up!

Liz Collins, Kent

Dear Liz

Thank you for sending in your beautiful flower pictures.

We would love to see pictures of flowers, plants, fruit and vegetables that other readers are growing in their gardens, balconies, window sills or flower pots.

Reader's Letter

Dear Sixtyplusurfers 

One of my favourite television programmes is Room 101, where people nominate things they’d like to put in a vault and never see again.

I’d like to put in forms to fill in! There seem to be so many complicated forms to fill in nowadays – and they are almost like encyclopaedias. After filling them in I get such a headache, and then usually find I’ve made a mistake.

And call centres … that keep you hanging on for hours! The list is endless.

Steve Richards

Dear Steve

I heartily agree. Forms and call centres can drive you mad. Especially that annoying music that call centres play.

Someone warned me, that call centres can hear you talking when the music is playing. So be careful what you say.

We’d love to hear what other readers would put in Room 101.

Sixtyplusurfers Competition

Win a Vileda and Marigold Spring Cleaning Bundle

Sixtyplusurfers has teamed up with the cleaning giants, Vileda and Marigold to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a Spring Cleaning Bundle worth over £90.

This fabulous prize includes a Vileda Easy Sweep Cordless Vacuum, a Vileda Radiator Airer, and the full range of Marigold cloths, scourers and gloves to help you get your home in tip top shape for the Spring.

Top tips to get your house shipshape this spring with Vileda and Marigold

Vileda and Marigold have also ensured you are fully equipped with handy hints and tips this season, ahead of the big spring clean.

Whether you need to tackle the polishing, scrubbing, sweeping or mopping, they’ve shared their top tips and recommended products for ensuring your house is sparkling in no time.

Tip 1 – Easy, peasy lemon squeezy

If one of your spring cleaning missions is to make your shower doors shine, try rubbing them with half a lemon before wiping down with Marigold Squeaky Clean (RRP £1.99) to remove water marks. This microfibre cloth deep cleans with its unique super-absorbent coating, and locks in liquids to ensure even the glossiest of surfaces are left streak-free.

Tip 2 – Tackle those cupboards

Are your kitchen cupboards getting out of hand? 82%* of us prioritise a good de-clutter as part of our deep clean.  To get cupboards gleaming again, mix 1 part white vinegar to 3 parts water and use Marigold Cleaning Me Softly (RRP £1.19) to scrub away dirt.

Why use Marigold Cleaning Me Softly? The unique Teflon approved coating is easy to rinse and breaks down stubborn dirt and burnt on food easily, without damaging delicate surfaces.

Tip 3 – Embrace the Figure of Eight

Save yourself from putting in too much legwork by mopping in a clever figure of eight pattern, which will not only give you the best results, ensuring dirt particles are picked up effectively and easily, but will also get your floors spick-and-span with minimal time and effort.

For best results, use the Vileda SuperMocio 3 Action XL Mop and Bucket with Torsion Wringer (RRP £6.99 each). Why? It’s the number one best-selling mop and bucket in the UK** and offers the ultimate in dirt removal, plus hair and particle pick up, while the bucket and torsion wringer twists and compresses the mop head, removing excess water easily.

Tip 4 – Energy-free drying

Are you part of the 39% of Brits who rely on a tumble dryer to get clothes dry? If so, you could be spending over £80 a year on drying alone***

Cut down on tumble dryer use, save money and energy with the Vileda Premium 2-in-1 Indoor Airer (RRP £29.99), which boasts 18m of line length. Ideal for large laundry items, it has thick wires to help reduce creasing and, for smaller wash loads, it has a detachable wing to hook onto radiators. What’s more, the airer has wheels so when the weather is fine outside, you can easily move it outdoors so your clothes can dry in the fresh spring air.

This month Sixtyplusurfers has teamed up with Angels Malt Whisky to offer one lucky reader who joins the Sixtyplusurfers Newsletter mailing list or recommends a friend the chance to win a bottle of Angels’ Nectar Whisky – Blended by Angels, Shared with Friends  

Inspired by the Angels’ share, the traditional name given to the whisky lost to evaporation during the maturation of Scotch Whisky, Angels’ Nectar presents a new range of Blended Malt Scotch Whiskies.

At any one time there are twenty million whisky casks maturing across Scotland, all exposed to the full thirst of the Angels. The Angels take their pick; selfishly enjoying some casks more than others, whilst hard working distillers watch their efforts disappear. The Angels’ share is a wonderful term, for what is in effect evaporation, but this delightful story is very much at the heart of Scotch whisky folklore.

Angels’ Nectar Original (or First Edition) has been carefully blended from a selection of the finest Speyside and Highland malt whiskies, and bottled, without additional colouring, at 40% vol.. On the nose this dram is sweet and fruity, reminiscent of an apple pie in the oven. A sip brings forward hints of heather honey and lemon, with a touch of spice on the finish. 

Angels’ Nectar Original is a delight served straight up, but for a longer drink do not be afraid to add ice, a little water or ginger ale. As for cocktails, try as a ‘Rob Roy’, that’s with sweet red vermouth, a drop of bitters, served over ice, garnished with orange.

Angels’ Nectar also offer their Rich Peat Edition, bottled at the higher strength of 46% vol., and created from a marriage of two heavily peated highland malts. This oozes a welcoming wood smoke, like the chimney of a country pub on a rainy day. Don’t be frightened by the peat, unlike some heavily peated malts this is not aggressively medicinal. It’s a lovely full bodied whisky, and last year was awarded two stars in the Great Taste Awards, the criteria for which is ‘above and beyond delicious’. The smoky flavour comes from the traditional method for drying the barley in the malting process, from firing the kiln with peat.  

Blended Malts are a relatively new category of Scotch Whisky, having only been legally defined in 2009. The production is the same as per Single Malt, from malted barley distilled in a pot still, except that they comprise casks from more than one malt distillery, as opposed to ‘Blended Whisky’ where the bulk of the volume in the blend is grain whisky, distilled in a continuous still, flavoured with a series of malt whiskies.

Angels’ Nectar was launched in 2014 by Robert Ransom, who has fifteen years experience in the Scotch Whisky trade. The company is based in Grantown-on-Spey, on the banks of the River Spey, appropriately in the heart of whisky country.

Coming up, for the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival in May, is ‘Angels’ Nectar Whisky Caching’. Similar to geo-caching, but with whisky, a trail of Angels’ Nectar Whisky Caches will be laid across Speyside, and the first to find each cache will receive a 200ml bottle of Angels’ Nectar. Everybody should be a winner though, as guests are asked to leave a miniature of their choice in place of the dram they find.
