Expect Those Country Smells By Fullers & Trusthams

We live in the countryside, we are used to farm vehicles on our roads and we adapt to those ‘country smells’ that visitors gag at… Here is a polite message from local farmers, Andrew & Tim Frampton:

The war in Ukraine has meant that artificial fertiliser prices namely ammonium nitrate has increased four fold in price and is now very difficult to get hold of as well .We have just signed a contact to rent the fields behind Fullers and Trusthams for another year and the ground is in desperate need of fertiliser .We usually use artificial fertiliser but this year are forced to use 🐄 🚽 so it may smell for a couple days before being absorbed and we just wanted to warn residents and apologise for any smell but it will only linger for a couple days. We hope residents will understand. Thank you.

Full Moon – Wednesday, 16th February

The Full Moon is today at 16.57hrs.

Known by many as the Snow moon, due to the seasonal weather, it is also known as the Black Bear or Bear Moon: referring to the time when bear cubs are born.

About once every 19 years, February does not have a Full Moon, known as a Black Moon. In 2018, this was the case in most time zones. This can only happen in February, as this is the only month which is shorter than a lunar month. When this occurs, both January and March have two New Moons, instead of just one, creating a double Blue Moon.

Thank You From Zoe Raymond

You may remember 11yr old Zoe Raymond from Blackdown putting out a request at the end of September for your used stamps in memory of her Grandad Lloyd Curtis (You can read the original post HERE).

A happy Zoe delivered her first donation to Weldmar Hospice yesterday.

The total weight of the used stamps collected was 72 oz (just over 2 kg) which converted into a £40 donation to the Weldmar Hospice.

Zoe continues to collect used stamps for her second donation. If you have any stamps (please leave at least 1cm of envelope around the stamp) please contact Zoe and her Mum, Sonia on 01460 30471 who will arrange their collection.

Thank you again for your support & well done Zoe!

Full Moon – Sunday, 19th December

The cold weather is upon us and appropriately, December’s Full Moon is most commonly known as the ‘Cold Moon’. The Moon will be full at 04.35am on Sunday, 19th December.

Other names that indicate the cold and snow given to this Full Moon are:

  • Drift Clearing Moon (Cree),
  • Frost Exploding Trees Moon (Cree),
  • Moon of the Popping Trees (Oglala),
  • Hoar Frost Moon (Cree),
  • Snow Moon (Haida, Cherokee),
  • Winter Maker Moon (Western Abenaki)
  • Moon When the Deer Shed Their Antlers (Dakota)
  • Little Spirit Moon (Anishinaabe).

This Full Moon has also been called the Long Night Moon (Mohican), as it rises during the “longest” nights of the year, which are near the December winter solstice.

In Europe, ancient pagans called the December Full Moon the “Moon Before Yule,” in honour of the Yuletide festival celebrating the return of the sun heralded by winter solstice.

Full Moon – Friday, 19th November

The November Full Moon, known as the Beaver Moon, will also be accompanied by a partial lunar eclipse that will be visible from the United States, Canada and Mexico (essentially all of North and South America), as well as Australia and parts of Europe and Asia. It will last six hours and peak at 09.02am (GMT). Therefore the Moon will look it’s fullest on Thursday evening.

Full Moon names date back to Native Americans of North America. There was some variation in the Full Moon names, but in general, the same ones were consistent among regional tribes – those who rely on full moon periods to track crops and harvest.

This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter.

Art by Karl Lindbergh

According to ancient legend, humans will turn into wolves on a Wednesday or Friday when sleeping outdoors on the night of the Full Moon.
He will turn into a wolf when the light of the moon shines on his face. Thankfully, the scientists have disproved this 🙂
