Broccoli contains a highamount of potassium, which helpsmaintain a healthy nervous system,optimal brain function, as well aspromoting muscle growth.Broccoli also contains magnesium &calcium that helps regulate bloodpressure.Broccoli is high in fibre: aids digestion,prevents constipation, maintains lowblood sugar, & curbs overeating. A cup of broccoli: has as much proteinas a cup of rice or corn with half thekilojoules; contains the RecommendedDaily Allowance of vitamin C, an effectiveantihistamine for easing the discomfort of the common cold.There are many recipes for broccoli, butthe secret of cooking it lies in not OVERcooking. Cut the florets, or little trees, sothat the trunks aren't too thick, so its notcrunchy one end and soggy the other.

To the editor...
Last week, the pious folk of Canowindra(with the help of their electricity retailer) notonly held 'Earth Hour' 3 days earlier thansome other countries, but showed up the restof the world by having *every* light in the*entire town* out for *four* hours. TheWorld Wrestling Federation will doubtlessgrant us an indulgence for charitable workswhen they realise their fondest wish andbecome the world government. In the mean-time, I expect our stockpile of environmentalkarma would enable us to skip Earth Hourfor the next 3 years without so much as atwinge of conscience.In fact, based on the frequency with whichour electricity retailer provides us with'green energy', it seems likely thatCanowindra will be the pre-eminent state inthe new world order. Which is a pity, sincerefrigeration has historically had so many ofthose health benefit things.sincerely,A. Lark, Canowindra
Note from Ed: WWF = World Wildlife Fund?
Bronwyn Guest from Eugowra and local AnneVincent have opened
, a little hatshop at the bend in Gaskill Street .Bronwyn and Anne been making hats for 5 yearsnow, after meeting whilst completing theirmillinery course.The two milliners set up shop in Canowindra fortwo weeks last Spring, and as they had such agreat time and everyone was so encouraging,they decided to do it again...this time for sixmonths.Bronwyn and Anne make all the hats in the shop,each one is unique and exclusive, and they canoffer some guidelines on how to choose a hatstyle to suit you.When asked about 'The Wedding' last year, "Kate
and William’s wedding was undoubtedly a once
in a lifetime opportunity for milliners to attractthe attention of media all over the world. The useof a few outrageous pieces of headwear achievedthat very successfully. Television is very influential
in less direct ways, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries
has brought the millinery fashions of the 1920sinto favour," enthused the creative pair.Without doubt
The Hat is Back
. Weddings,particularly outdoors weddings, and the races -headwear is always in fashion at the races - but
it’s the ‘non
occasion’ headwear which has
undergone the biggest change. Hats for summerdays, winter days, and even bad hair days...pull on
a stylish little cloche and you’re good to go. The
addition of a fabulous hat can make such a differ-
ence to your overall look, you’ll be amazed at the
compliments you receive when you add a piece
of millinery to what you’re wearing.They don’t mind being referred to as mad hatters,as they don’t take themselves too seriously, as it’s
unlikely that the master milliners of the world arethreatened by the potential competition fromCanowindra, but the pair consider themselvesvery lucky to be able to indulge their passion.
