From the Rector

Dear Parishioners,
Parish Census
Forms have been circulated and a significant number have been returned. In due
course a team of visitors will be calling to households to collect the remainder.
Once again, I encourage your participation in this exercise and thank you for
taking the time to engage with the process.
Easter General Vestry (EGV)
As you see on page 4, the EGV took place in April and I used the occasion to
thank all those who are involved in the many areas of parish life in Holy Trinity.
Three areas I want to highlight from my talk:
1) The importance of all of us (young and old) taking an active part in your
parish. If you havent yet found your niche - please dont give up! Have a chat
with me.
2) Children are not the future of the church, they are the present of the church.
Children and precious to God and are always welcome in Holy Trinity.
3) The Carry Centre is now being used for a significant part of the week.
Whilst parishioners and parochial clubs have priority over bookings (where
possible) - we are largely dependent of the rents of outside users to help pay-off
100,000 loan on the project. Thankfully these repayments are on target.
We enclose a copy of the Annual Report with this edition of The Obelisk.
Summer
Summer is just around the corner and I hope that it may be a time for all of us to
re-charge the batteries and find some quality time for rest and relaxation.
With every good wish,

RECTORS SURGERY - Every Tuesday

Customer testimonial...Declan Quinn
I have just bought a 2011 Kia ProCeed from Shane in Dalkey Motor Company.
We rang Shane before travelling over to him to say I wanted the car that was listed on his
website. Shane was very honest about the car and didn't mess us about. It was very well
prepared for sale and the whole process in dealing with Shane was very easy. He sorted the car
and paperwork out while I went off to get some lunch
I would highly recommend Dalkey Motor Company and Shane.

Food Corner Melon & Cucumber Salad

Melons and cucumbers are naturals together - they're practically siblings in the
botanical world - but cooks rarely pair them. Here, they get some
Mediterranean attitude with mint and garlic, making them into the coolest
possible essence of summer-in-a-bowl.
Partner this salad with anything pulled from the grill, or have it as a light lunch on
a bed of tender greens. Obviously, the better the melon, the better the salad,
but don't be afraid to sweeten not-so-perfect melon with a sprinkle of sugar.
Ingredients
2 medium cucumbers, peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch pieces (about 1-1/2 cups)
Salt
1 garlic clove, peeled and halved
1-1/2 cups ripe cantaloupe or watermelon, seeded and cut into 1-inch chunks
1/4 tightly-packed cup fresh spearmint leaves, torn
1 heaping tablespoon finely snipped chives, or scallion tops
1 tablespoon white wine or vinegar, more to taste
1 tablespoon good tasting extra-virgin olive oil, or more to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, if needed to sweeten the melon
1/4 cup crumbled young sheep cheese such as Ricotta Salata, Cacio di
Roma, Pecorino or feta
Method
1. Sprinkle the cucumber with salt, roll up the pieces in a double thickness of
paper towel and let rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Unwrap and pat dry.
2. Rub a serving bowl with the garlic. Add the cucumber, melon, mint, chives,
vinegar and 1 tablespoon of oil. Gently combine. Season to taste with more oil
or vinegar, salt, pepper, and sugar, if needed.
3. Serve topped with crumbled spoonfuls of cheese and eat immediately.

Pack your Bags to New Zealand

I love to travel and I am very lucky that as a teacher I get long holidays
each summer. I try to go somewhere each year and this year the
destination was New Zealand! My aim was to see and experience as
much as I could in a fairly short amount of time. I had gathered a long list
of absolute must-see places and things to do and I hoped I could fit them
all in! Driving from place to place, the scenery is spectacular snow
topped mountains, clear turquoise lakes and rough rugged cliffs. There
were many highlights of the trip I could mention, but one that definitely
stands out is my day on the Franz Josef Glacier. After kitting up with lots
of layers to keep warm, a four minute helicopter ride brings you onto the
ice. Now you put on your crampons and have to get used to walking with
them and take in all that is around you! A three hour hike brought me
across the ice looking at the formations and blue ice and walking through
the crevasses. Something I will not forget in a hurry. As the evenings
begin to lengthen, I am already beginning to wonder where my next
adventure might be...!

A little knowledge*...

- In the 1400s a law was set forth in England that a man was allowed to beat his
wife with a stick no thicker than his thumb. Hence we have - the rule of thumb
- The first couple to be shown in bed together on prime time TV was Fred and
Wilma Flintstone
- Coca-Cola was originally green.
- It is impossible to lick your elbow.
- The cost of raising a medium-size dog to the age of eleven: 11,851.25.
- The first novel ever written on a typewriter was Tom Sawyer.
- Each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king from history:
Spades = King David; Hearts = Charlemagne; Clubs =Alexander the Great,
Diamonds = Julius Caesar.
- 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987, 654,321
- If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the
person died in battle. If the horse has one front leg in the air, the person died
because of wounds received in battle. If the horse has all four legs on the
ground, the person died of natural causes.
- Bulletproof vests, fire escapes, windshield wipers and laser printers were all
were invented by women.
- Honey is the only food that doesn't spoil.
- In Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes.
When you pulled on the ropes, the mattress tightened, making the bed firmer
to sleep on. Hence the phrase. - Goodnight, sleep tight
- Many years ago in England, pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim,
or handle, of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they used the
whistle to get some service. Wet your whistle is the phrase inspired by this
practice.
- At least 75% of people who read this will try to lick their elbow!
