As a well known junk (treasure) collector, I am trying to become a little more disciplined in managing my inventory. About three years ago, I bought a backhoe to do some major landscaping in preparation for building our new home and some additional work once we were moved in. After two years of usefulness, I sold (recycled) the backhoe and bought my newest old tractor. It, of course, has been extremely useful and my main man toy, but a number of old implements have gone unused for years and so I recently recycled those to new owners. So my new policy for managing inventory is ... prove that you are useful within a one to two year period or you are gone!!! “For Sale or Trade … One short little old lady!!! Other than writing malicious stories (see current Musings, I have not found other useful purposes in over two years!!” Another very good reason for getting rid of surplus equipment (and people) is to make room for new to me equipment. By later today, I am hoping to return to the backhoe business. Now this is a relatively small attachment for the back of my tractor and not the big monster that I had before. After months of walking our woods roads, I have been perturbed by the condition of significant sections of the roads. There is one section of about 100 metres that is just a bog and largely impassable with the tractor. But, I believe that if I ditch it properly for better drainage that it can be used again. Then, just after this area is another 100 metres that is washed out so badly that 50% of the road is missing and there are sections eroded down at least four feet. Other than Saint John residents, no one would try to drive on this!! Throw in about six other small areas of road that are troublesome and about a hundred places that could use some improvements and you can see that a small backhoe is just exactly what is needed. Fortunately, the missus is like me, we hate to see things deteriorate and become useless. It certainly doesn’t make economic sense, but somehow, having those roads restored to working condition is important to my sense of how things should be. When we no longer have the time, energy or money to take care of what we own or we just no longer want it or need it, then it is the time to seriously think about giving up our ownership to someone that will value and take care of it. How often do we see individuals hold onto things without providing any care right up to the point where they are totally useless and beyond recovery. Please recycle!! 800

The 3rd Annual Hammond River Duck Race is just around the river bend! It will be taking place at the Hammond River Angling Association on Sunday, August 28th and there will be food, fun and a fantastic chance to win $500. All proceeds go to Muscular Dystrophy Canada, so “adopt” a rubber duck today and get ready for the cutest race of the season! The Duck Race is an annual fundraiser for Muscular Dystrophy Canada, a non-profit organization whose mission it is to find a cure for neuromuscular diseases. The event is like a horse race, except instead of betting on a horse, you “adopt” a rubber duck and enter it into the race. First duck to cross the finish line wins 500 big kahunas (also known as Canadian dollars.) Even if you can’t attend - each duck is numbered so when you purchase a ticket, your duck will be set aside as an entrant in the race. If your duck ends up winning we will notify you via phone/ email right after the fact! To adopt a duck or purchase a ticket for the event call 849-4245 or email - darshana.sen@muscle.ca. It takes $5 to adopt a duck and that affords you one entry into the race. Muscular Dystrophy Canada is a national voluntary agency, which is committed to eliminating neuromuscular disorders and alleviating the associated distress. By taking part in this event you’re helping us take one step closer to finding a cure. Besides - when else are you going to have the chance to take part in a Duck Race? 811 The John Fisher Memorial Museum, located in the basement of Macdonald Consolidated School in Kingston, is open until Labour Day. Come and enjoy the colourful exhibit of wood artistry which is on display in our summer gallery, view our permanent exhibit, do some family research, take in a tour of 1789 Trinity Church and cemetery or just walk the grounds of the Kingston Historic District, which will lead you to 1810 Carter House Tea Room, Gift Shop, Library, Heritage Site and Gardens. All sites are open daily, Tuesday to Saturday, 9:00am-4:00pm until September 3rd. Ask our staff about a tour or picnic at the Cedars Light in Long Reach. The trail leading to the light is open to the public at all times but a tour of the building itself is available by appointment only. Parking to access the trail is available at the Frances Smith Memorial Hall or St. James Church. If you are interested a tour of St. James Church, housing one of the few Queen Anne Pulpits in the country and built as the “Chapel of Ease” in the 1800’s, one might even be arranged.

Youth representatives from St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church collected used sports equipment during the month of June to donate to PRO Kids. They also recently participated in the July 1st Strawberry Social and were able, along with the rest of St. Paul’s Church, to donate $1,343 to PRO Kids! PRO Kids (Positive Recreation Opportunities for Kids) is a nonprofit organization which originated in Thunder Bay in 1997. The Purpose of PRO Kids is to provide assistance to as many children and youth under age 18 as possible who, due to the lack of funds, are not able to participate in sport, art, cultural and recreational activities. The District Health Advisory Committee for School District 6 and the Town of Hampton partnered to bring this organization to Hampton in 2003. The Town of Hampton purchased the program from Thunder Bay and now the Hampton Community Club oversees its operation. The benefit to having PRO Kids is that no one needs to know that a registration is sponsored unless the child/youth or parents wish to share the information. Information is completely confidential. Also anyone can apply for only one activity per season. This eliminates one student being sponsored for more than one activity at a time and offers more opportunities for more children to get involved. Since 2003 we have had many organizations partner to donate spaces or fund raise to get more kids involved in recreational activities. Examples of this are the Lions Club, Minor Sports organization, Canadian Tire Jump Start Program, and the RCMP. If you want to know more about PRO Kids, support the program with a monetary donation, or get involved in fundraising please contact Gena Fowler with the Town of Hampton Leisure Services at 832-6102 or by email at gena@townofhampton.ca. 123

You! . . . . . after finishing this year’s ‘Hampton 5-Miler and Kids’ Kilometre Mile’ on Sunday, September 11th. Runners, walkers and waddlers are welcome. This year will mark the eleventh annual for this well organized event that will probably see over 300 people of all ages, speeds and abilities begin at the High school at 10:00am and cover a five mile circuit around Hampton. The event runs the gamut from being a Super Series run and 5 Mile Provincial Championship for the more serious runners, to being a family affair with a special run for those under 13, and everything in between. There is also babysitting in the school for younger ones if mom and dad want to both participate. The ‘Hampton 5-Miler and Kids’ Kilometre Mile’ is sponsored by the Hampton River Runners, a group of runners and walkers, who organize it for the benefit of the community. All money raised by way of registration fees stays in Hampton to promote healthy active living, and this year we are also encouraging people to bring their gently used running shoes to donate to the Hampton Food Basket. Following the run/walk there is a feast of healthy sandwiches, fruit, snacks and drinks and an award ceremony in the theatre at the school. There are dozens of prizes to be won and not just by the most speedy in the crowd. Every registrant is in the running (so to speak!) to win a prize. Get your neighbor, your spouse, your kids, and join us on Sunday, September 11th. You will feel fantastic and you will be among hundreds of others who feel the same. Preregistration is encouraged at www.atlanticchip.ca or www. runningroom.com . You can also call Jeremy Fry at 8322710 or Joe Kennedy at 8325511 for more information. 822

Bridging New Waters 4-H Club recently held their Achievement Day at the Smith Creek Hall. Members achieved in the following projects: Archery, Cloverbuds, Connections to the Sea, Exploring 4-H, and Level I Veterinary. Special thanks to our judges for their time, our leaders for their devotion and our members for their dedication to the club this past year. It has been an amazing year for our small club of twelve members. In addition to taking part in the Sussex Christmas Parade, serving dinner for Crosswinds, collecting food for the food bank, planting trees along Trout Creek and going whale watching, leaders and members from our club were awarded trips to three 4-H sponsored conferences: the National Conference in Toronto, the US National Conference in Washington, DC and the Citizenship conference in Ottawa; and two leaders and one our members just returned from an exchange trip in BC. One of the many benefits of 4-H is getting to meet other 4-H’ers from other provinces and countries at these events. Another benefit of 4-H is the scholarships and our very own Miss Brittany Armstrong was one of ten recipients of the TD 4-H Scholarship. Congratulations Brittany and good luck at college. Thank you to Rob & Joanne Carney for the great time we had on Sunday, August 7th while on our whale watching tour. The rain was not able to dampen our spirits as we ventured the Bay of Fundy in search of whales. Under layers of rain gear, eye patches, face paint and blankets we saw Fin Whales, Minke whales, Harbour seals and porpoise. The kids were complemented for their positive, despite the weather, which made me very proud. We would like to say a special thanks to the Sears’ Young Futures 4-H Grant for their contribution that made it possible for us to make this trip more affordable for our members

Children don’t care if it is raining. Plans were made for a boat trip to the green bridge in Hampton to swim at the little sand island. When it was time to go the rain began. That did not stop (l-r) Chris O’Toole, J.D. McKenzie, Jake Stack, Rayanne McKenzie and Alita Scott from their adventure. While enjoying a swimming and fishing trip they took time out to clean the area under the bridge where boaters and land lovers go to sit and relax or fish and swim. The children have been taught at a young age to leave their surroundings in nature the way they found them and to pick up after those who forget to look behind as they left. I tip my hat to them and thank them for wanting to help keep our nature clean, Captain Zelda. If you would like to send a “Tip of the Hat” to acknowledge someone who gives of themselves to their community without recognition or pay, just send us their name, community and a brief description of their acts of kindness.

This year 37 New Brunswick athletes travelled to Ottawa to compete at the 2011 Canadian Legion Youth Track & Field Championships. After three days of 30 degree temperatures with humidity up to 88% making it feel more like 37 to 40, team New Brunswick came back with one medal, six provincial records and an incredible 40 new personal bests (PB)! Our SJTC members competed in the following: Joshua Shanks of Lepreau was New Brunswick’s silver medal recipient in the 2000m race; this was also a PB plus a provincial record which he beat by over a second. Joshua also did a PB in the 1200m and the 800m races. Ben Fowler competed in the High Jump and Javelin and did a PB in the Triple Jump. Victoria Leblanc did a PB in both the Long Jump and the 200m. Dan Brown did a PB in the Octathlon with an individual PB in six of the eight events. Jacob Hayes competed in the 100m and 200m. Anthony Cormier competed in both the Triple Jump and 300m. Nick MacMackin did a PB in the 800m. Pierre Dumouchel competed in the 800m and did a PB in the 1200m. Liam Kettlewell competed in the 300m hurdles and did a PB in the 110m hurdles. Katie Robinson did a PB in both the 800m and the 1500m. The following athletes also competed in relay races: Victoria, Pierre, Dan, Josh, Anthony, Katie and Jacob. Congratulations to all the athletes who competed; it took concentration, mental and physical strength plus hard work and confidence to get this far – be proud! The New Brunswick team and all their friends and family members cheered on these athletes whether they knew them or not. The enthusiasm for the New Brunswick athletes was evident at each and every event…we are a proud province indeed! Full results are available on the Athletics New Brunswick website and videos of each track event are available on www.runnerspace.com. 828

HAvINg too muCH oF A gooD tHINg! There is no doubt that water is the most vital commodity on the face of the earth and we are greatly blessed that there has been no shortage of it this year; however the abundance that I have celebrated has left many folk decidedly disenchanted. The major problems appear to be the resulting mould and fungal growth and while it is not possible to totally remedy this situation, much can be done to allay the damage. Hanging baskets suffer greatly, especially when planted in the sponge like product that retains water, a great invention for a dry summer, but a disaster waiting to happen this year. When our worthy weather chaps predict more rain on the way it is worth while to park all baskets and potted arrangements in the shelter of garage or shed, pop the hangers on an upturned bucket to avoid squashing the drapery and allow them to dry out. Cutting out any faded leaves and dead heading will allow a better flow of air, critical in dealing with rot and moulds, (this allows you to continue gardening through the wildest of weather). Clearing away detritus from the plants that have finished blooming, (though normally done later in the fall), and cutting back Siberian and Japanese Iris a little early, will remove those moist conditions that provide ritz accommodation for breeding slugs and ear wigs. This will not unduly harm the plants and has the added satisfaction of yet another ‘Fall Job’ done in advance. Whilst touching on ‘cleaning up’ extreme caution needs to be

exercised in dealing with fallen fruit, there are mega numbers of wasps, hornets, their cousins & aunts and it seems they love nothing better than to burrow into fallen fruit and, replete with the juicy contents, wait, ready to spring and sting any unwitting picker upper. These bods can be lethal and a small investment at a medical supply shop is the perfect way to thwart their plans. Extendable ‘claws’, such as are helpful for patients to grab out of reach items, are actually quite a bit cheaper than those created for cleaning litter off parking lots etc. I keep mine on my tractor and pick up sticks as I mow; it saves a lot of stopping and starting. Back to the water and how to deal with the surfeit ... just thank God that we seem to have too much and recall, if you will, the drought situation here in Canada some years ago when animals died in their thousands and crops were reduced to dust. The thought of carrying a water jug on my head for miles through the African jungle renders me positively joyful to dwell in this verdant and beautiful land. 805

I went to a garden party, reminisced with my old friends; A chance to share old memories and play our songs again. Ricky Nelson, singer On August 14th, a number of friends of the Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership gathered for a garden party at the home of Marje and Bev Harrison. The day was sunny, the gardens were lovely, the refreshments were, well, refreshing, and the songs were beautifully played by Peter Cho; Margie Christ; Emily Fox; and Lydia Mainville. These four extremely talented members of the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra made the event a memorable one for everyone who attended. We are extremely grateful for their generosity in donating their time and talents to this fundraiser for the projects we are supporting in Piggs Peak, Swaziland. On behalf of the Partnership, I would also like to thank all those who worked at the event and helped to make it so enjoyable for the guests. Thanks to Travis Allaby; Fidelis Asiago; Billy Carter; Marjorie Dickinson; Ann Hadfield; Edward Hakisimana; Margaret McCully; Carol & Bill Sutton; and Brad Trecartin. A special thank you to Marje and Bev who obviously went to a lot of work in preparing their home for this event. They were the maestros in orchestrating this affair and they deserve a great deal of credit for making it a successful day. It was a busy weekend as, on the previous day, we raised $546.40 at the town-wide yard sale. Like the garden party, 100 percent of these funds will go toward our projects that are helping reduce the devastating impact of HIV/AIDS in Swaziland. We have a dedicated group of people who work very hard in pursuing our mission. We are aware of the terrible state of affairs in Piggs Peak and the gratification we receive is in knowing our efforts are helping alleviate this situation. As a supporter of our efforts, I hope you enjoy the same gratification. If you would like to become a Starfish sponsor or make a financial

Indoor plumbing is a wonderful thing that we generally never think about . . . until it doesn’t work. I vividly remember as a child using the outhouse at my grandparents’ farmhouse. It was a novelty and an adventure in the summer, less desirable in winter. And of course there was the summer the hornets claimed it for their own! Something one is unlikely to encounter with indoor plumbing. We (well, mostly Michael) were recently assisting one of our daughters who is in the midst of a kitchen renovation. The final task for the day was to remove the lower cabinetry in preparation for the arrival of the new ones. Although the cupboards weren’t much to look at, it turned out they were VERY sturdily constructed. After Michael had pooh-poohed the suggestion it might be necessary to just whack them apart with the hammer (I think the comment was something like “How crude”), the solution eventually came down to “lets just whack them apart with the hammer”, and he embraced it with great enthusiasm. The last piece to go was the section where the sink had been housed. The water valve below the sink had been shut of course, but in the gleeful dismantling of the cupboards an old joint was broken and water began to spew. Our daughter was quick to head to the basement and shut off the water for the entire building until repairs could be made. Which unfortunately took another two hours with trips to three hardware stores to assemble everything required. Done. The next day we were at my mother’s for a family supper and it was noted that her pump was struggling; diagnosis, waterlogged. So after supper, gallant as always, Michael heads to the basement to drain it down. Now this is not a new experience, it is something he has done multiple times, but never with as much pizzazz as this time. There seemed to be some difficulty when it came time to restart the pump and Michael requested a little water be dipped from the toilet tank so he could prime the pump as the pressure was not coming up. As I set out to get the water, Michael commenced to unscrew the top of the pump to add the water. And immediately had a geyser to rival “Old Faithful”! He not only had water gushing up at him from the pump (obviously the pump pressure was just fine), but the water hit the ceiling and was also cascading back down on him from the top, as he valiantly tried to locate the right circuit breaker to shut off the power while totally blinded by gushing water. And the rest of us were absolutely no help as we were laughing far too hard to be able to function. Mike did of course successfully complete restarting the pump, my mother had her water back and the basement did eventually dry out. Meanwhile I am fearful of Michael’s next plumbing adventure, since they seem to be escalating. Do I hear a drip? 801
