Circo Kernow Students 2011



We've been blown away by Hugo & Co...

                                           
They've been studying circus performance skills for only 1 or 2 sessions over 10 weeks...
And we've picked out a selection of the best photos...
         
The group are mainly aged between 14 & 18...
And they also learned how to put up the big top & prepare for a show.


They each tried all the activities & discovered what they prefer to do...

We've known some of the kids for a while, so it was great to see what they have achieved...

Even those we didn't know still managed to amaze us...

The group have also learnt Makulele...

And Capoeira...

Which was fun to watch...



Hugo's chosen skill was mime...


                                          
We were surprised by his confidence & of course we had no idea what to expect...

                                        
But we have been very impressed!

With all of them...

Rowan is 14...

And these 2 were wonderful...

Jake is climbing down the rope...

Just stunning...

Amazing...

And brilliant!

Emma was also the girl on the silk rope...

                                           
The Hula Hoop girls wowed us all!

Then the finale...

And taking a bow...

You can see the group performing in the middle of Truro, where they appeared as statues to advertise their show. 

Enjoy!

Looks it was a fun evening for the audience and the performers. I liked Hugo's costume, he really looked the part.
Thank you all!

Hugo's had a wonderful time at the circus school. He's quite keen continuing with mime & statue work...

Nettles

Our garden yesterday. Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now. This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower. ~ Edward Thomas ~ Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem! Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine... Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food. Nettles are ric

Diet And Drugs

Some of you know about my fight with Graves Disease, an auto immune system disorder, which causes an overactive thyroid. Since I was diagnosed 7 years ago, I have made it my business to know everything I possibly could about the condition & this has probably saved my life. I have blood tests on a regular basis & in November last year, I was told that my T4 levels are normal & again in January the same.  My thyroid stimulating hormone was finally starting to work too, after 7 years of lying dormant, so I suggested I came off the anti thyroid drug & my GP's response was to continue for a while longer. A month ago, I rang my GP & suggested again that I come off the drug or at least halve it, as I was feeling so well  & was concerned about the drug pushing me into being under active. Again, she said to be patient & they would send for me when it's time for a blood test. I don't normally do as I'm told, but decided to stick with it a b

Taking The Plunge

Life is set to change again for us. We have had a great time entertaining many B&B guests, but now have decided to stop & concentrate on the things that are far more important. Firstly, ourselves... Sharing our home with many strangers is quite exhausting & Sime in particular has worn himself out giving his all, something neither of us had really noticed until we stopped. Secondly, Bebe (Sime's mum) is going to be moving in with us... Her dementia is progressing, though the conditions she was continuing to live in were obviously not helping. We feel she has been let down by the social care support team, her carers seemed to be excellent on the surface, but in reality - she has been badly neglected. On our last visit, we found her flat in a terrible state. The cleaner had disappeared, her hairdresser had stopped going in & some of the carers didn't even bother to feed her! On top of all this, she has been phoning the police about her hot water &am
