Eggs-travagant! World’s most expensive Easter egg costs £5million and has 1,000 diamonds

CREME Eggs don’t look as exciting now the world’s most glitzy and expensive Easter treat is on the scene. However at a cool £5million you’ll need to be a billionaire to shell out for this sparkly one-off piece…

A cross between a luxury Faberge egg and the Damien Hirst skull, the Mirage is a unique gem that only the Simon Cowells and Richard Bransons of this world can afford.The incredible ornament has more than 1,000 diamonds on its “shell”, worth £1.5million alone, 100 of which are a unique cut.The jewel-encrusted egg then opens up to reveal an ornate globe which was hand-crafted in 18 carat gold. Within the globe, a rock crystal dove with a gold beak and gems for eyes, is perched on a lavish gold olive branch.The dove and olive branch were hand carved and were included as symbols of world peace.

Mirage has taken a whopping three years to make, with work carried out by elite craftsmen across three continents.Manfred Wild, the main man responsible for Mirage’s design and assembly, has brought the creation to life.Vashi Dominguez, jeweller to the stars and the diamond entrepreneur, is trying to persuade the mystery owner of this masterpiece to sell Mirage.

“Mirage is, quite simply, one of the finest jewels ever created,” said Dominguez. “The owner has said he has no intention of selling the wondrous piece, but if someone really wants it I can see if we can come to an agreement.“The diamonds alone are worth more than £1.5 million while labour costs were around the same.” At £5million, Mirage would cost the same price as a posh London home or 30 times the price of a Ferrari 458 Italia supercar.

If the average Brit saved their entire salary, it would take them 243 years before they could afford Mirage.However, Mr Dominguez believes the owner would end up wanting more.
“The owner doesn’t need to sell Mirage, but it is all about one-upmanship in the world of the billionaire and money does talk.“Owning this special item would be a great coup for someone to whom money is no object.”

Easter songs

Easter Rabbit

A rabbit came to my house once,
With funny,stretched-out ears (Hands on head like bunny ears)
His nose was full of wiggles, and (wiggle nose)
His eyes were full of fears (point to eyes)
I said,”Why do you twitch your nose?
Is that a bunny habit?
And are you called the “March Hare”
Or called the Easter Rabbit?
He never said a word: but bounced (Hands on head like bunny ears)
Away on pushing legs; (Hop forward)
But, oh, he left behind a nest (Look backward)
Of colored Easter eggs!

Bunny Pokey Sung to

“Hokey Pokey”
You put your bunny ears in
(Place hands on head to make ears)
You put your bunny ears out.
You put your bunny ears in.
And you shake them all about.
You do the Bunny Pokey
And hop yourself around,
That’s what it’s all about!
Additional verses: “You put your bunny nose in, You put your bunny tail in,
You put your bunny paws in”

The Easter Bunny Song

Oh, the Easter Bunny’s coming, she’s the one I long to see.
She’s got eggs in her basket, she’s bringing them to me.
I’m looking out the window and I hope she gets here quick,
I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick.

Oh, I love Easter Sunday and it comes round every year
Right now I’m so excited cause the Easter Bunny’s here!
The Easter eggs are lovely, with swirls on them because,
The Easter Bunny paints them with her little furry paws.

We’ll take the eggs and hide them, all up and down the hill,
And I’ll go back to find them with my little brother, Bill.
We will pile up all the goodies and I’ll eat all I can take,
And then end Easter Sunday with a big old belly ache.

Now sing briskly

Oh, the Easter Bunny’s coming, she’s the one I long to see.
She’s got eggs in her basket, she’s bringing them to me.
I’m looking out the window and I hope she gets here quick,
I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick.
I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick.
I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick.

Classic Easter Bunny song

Here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail,
Hippity, hoppity,
Easter’s on its way.

Bringin’ every girl and boy Baskets full of Easter joy,
Things to make your Easter bright and gay.
He’s got jelly beans for Tommy,
Colored eggs for sister Sue,
There’s an orchid for your Mommy
And an Easter bonnet, too.

Oh! here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail,
Hippity hoppity,
Happy Easter day.

Here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail,
Look at him stop,
and listen to him say:
“Try to do the things you should.”
Maybe if you’re extra good,
He’ll roll lots of Easter eggs your way.

You’ll wake up on Easter morning
And you’ll know that he was there
When you find those choc’late bunnies
That he’s hiding ev’rywhere.

Oh! here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail,
Hippity hoppity,
Happy Easter day.

 News,Travel,Children,Easter,UK Breaks

If you’re not going away over the Easter holidays, you may be struggling to think of ways to keep the kids entertained. But you don’t need to get on a plane to have fun; there are plenty of options on our doorstep that will keep both you and the children amused.

Here we offer 10 suggestions for days out over Easter, as well as tips to keep the costs down.

UK city days out

A day out in one of the UK’s cities could be a great way to teach your children more about the country they live in and, whether you choose to explore on foot, on an open-top bus or even on a boat, you’ll learn all sorts of interesting facts about the UK’s history.

Why not soak up the atmosphere in London in the run up to the Olympic Games and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations? The Oxford vs Cambridge boat race takes place on April 7, so if you want to watch this historic sporting event, plan your trip around that.

If you want to visit any of the big attractions in the capital, pre-book tickets to save on entry costs and take a look at MoneySupermarket’s vouchers channel to take advantage of offers. Current money off vouchers include 20% off entrance to the London Dungeon, 20% off the price of the Doctor Who tour and 20% off the price of City Cruises down the River Thames.
Other good options for city day trips include York, Manchester, Chester, Bristol, Bath and Edinburgh. 

Countryside retreats

Or, if you would prefer to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, make a packed lunch and head into the British countryside to explore for the day. If your child is a bookworm, a trip to the Lake District to learn all about Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth will inspire them while sports-mad children will love learning how to surf on one of the UK’s many beautiful (and often deserted) beaches in areas such as Cornwall, Devon and Northumberland. 

If you decide to explore the area over a day or two, you could take a look at the late availability of countryside cottages and B&Bs, and if you travel by train, make sure you book in advance to save on walk-up fees.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

If your children aren’t keen on surfing, but love the seaside, a day out in a traditional British seaside resort such as Blackpool, Brighton, Bournemouth or Weston-Super-Mare eating fish and chips, walking down the beach and playing in the amusement arcades is sure to keep all of the family entertained.

And, if you want to visit one of the attractions by the sea with the kids, check online for discount codes before you pack your bucket and spade. Current offers on MoneySupermarket include 20% off entry to the Sealife Centre in Blackpool and 20% off SeaQuarium in Weston-Super-Mare.

EASTER T

Easter time is upon us

Spring has come at last

Displaying all her beauty

Like a carpet she has cast

 

Out of the dreary winter

With colours of every shade

A breath-taking panorama

That Mother Nature has made

 

Frogs in the Lilly ponds

With frogspawn all around

Soon there will be tadpoles

Jumping up and down

Birds are also busy

Building with haste and zest

Making ready for new life

As they build their precious nest

 

 Children prepare their Easter bonnets

Decorated with chicks eggs and glue

Display them at the Easter Parade

For the delights of me and you

 

It’s a time of new beginnings

To focus on new things to do

 Be more positive in your thinking

To create a better future for you

That’s no yolk! ‘World’s largest Easter egg’ weighing 4 TONS and over 27ft high unveiled in Argentina

Weighing in at over four tons, a contender for the world’s largest Easter egg was unveiled to a crowd of chocolate lovers in Argentina today. 

Twenty-seven bakeries worked for two weeks to make enough chocolate for the gargantuan concoction wheeled in to the Chocolate Festival in Bariloche.

Towering over 27ft high (8.5m) and 16ft wide (5m), the sweet treat required a reported 8,800lbs (4,000kgs) of chocolate, hovering over a sea of spectators who gathered for a taste.

The major of San Carlos de Bariloche, Omar Goye, was present at the festival, where the Easter egg was to be certified by the Guinness Records as the world’s largest.   

 

Chocolatier Diego Ferraris told Esenciapatagonia.com the Easter egg was assembled using a wooden mold as foundation for the chocolate spread.

Pastry chefs, led by master baker Hugo Sosa, attached blocks of chocolate to the frame. 

The chocolate egg is said to have beaten the previous record for the world’s largest, built in Belgium, which stood 8.32m (27.3ft) high.

But temperatures in the region meant crowds didn’t have long to admire the egg before it started melting.

The Chocolate Festival has lured chocolatiers and chocolate lovers to the region since 1969 with events, races and other chocolate-themed activities. 

The festival this year ran from March 31-April 8.

It’s not a mistake.  St Patrick’s Day, for this year at least, is on Monday 18 March.  I hate to disappoint those who hope that Sunday Masses will focus on the patron saint of the Emerald Isle, but that’s the way it goes.

The General Norms for the Liturgical Year and the Calendarwritten after the Second Vatican Council to direct the reforms made to the Church’s liturgical seasons and feasts, begins with the following:

Christ’s saving work is celebrated in sacred memory by the Church on fixed days throughout the year. Each week on the day called the Lord’s Day the Church commemorates the Lord’s resurrection. Once a year at Easter the Church honours this resurrection and passion with the utmost solemnity. In fact through the yearly cycle the Church unfolds the entire mystery of Christ and keeps the anniversaries of the saints.  (article 1)

Our unfolding of “the entire mystery of Christ” is central to our liturgical life and is of upmost importance.  The General Norms include a table of liturgical days in order of precedence.  The Sundays of Advent, Lent and Easter rank among the days of highest importance, following the Easter Triduum, Christmas, the Epiphany, Ascension and Pentecost.

Consequently, when the Church in each country prepares its liturgical calendar, it has to make appropriate determinations when solemnities and feast days fall on Sundays during the Christmas, Advent, Lent and Easter seasons.  As St Patrick’s Day enjoys in Australia the highest rank for a liturgy feast – solemnity – it is transferred to the following Monday whenever it falls on a Sunday during Lent.  The same happens with the solemnity of St Joseph.  As 25 March falls during Holy Week this year, the solemnity of the Annunciation has been transferred to the first day after the conclusion of Holy Week and the Easter Octave, namely Monday 8 April.

Don’t fear though, all will be back to normal next year.  I’m sure there will also be plenty of people who’ll use this year’s circumstances as a good excuse for two days of celebration, rather than one!

See the luck it bring’s

To Catch a Leprechaun

To Catch a Leprechaun Hat
 

 

It’s an alarming trend that shows no sign of abating: every year, more and more Spoonful guests fall victim to leprechaun-related mischief around St. Patrick’s Day. “It’s never the same,” reports Margaret Bentley, of Painesville, Ohio. “The children talk about it for weeks in advance, wondering what things the leprechaun will do when he visits our house.”

Similarly, the kids in the Dezotell family of Seekonk, Massachusetts, can only imagine what the next St. Patrick’s Day home invasion will bring. Green milk? Green toilet water? Green footprints? Trails of shamrock confetti? “One year the kids woke up with green kiss marks on their foreheads,” recalls mom Monique, still clearly shaken.

Is it any surprise, then, that kids like 8-year-old Jacob Dezotell have decided to fight back? Every St. Patrick’s Day since he was in kindergarten, Jacob and his sister, Elise, age 7, have tried to capture a leprechaun. Despite powerful bait (Lucky Charms cereal!), their traps have caught only chocolate gold coins and candy bars, accompanied by notes taunting them with “Good try,” or “Can’t catch me!” As everyone knows, leprechauns hoard pots of gold, and if caught, must reveal the treasure’s location to their captor. But that’s not the payback Jacob seeks. Because the elusive elves are always leaving him chocolate, he figures they must have even more of that than gold!

It’s for the sake of Jacob, Elise, and all the other St. Patrick’s Day mischief fighters that we offer here three state-of-the-art leprechaun traps. Each is easily made from ordinary household materials and uses lures and baits drawn from the latest research in leprechaun psychology. But please take our designs and customize them to make something unique: leprechauns, as we all know, won’t be fooled by the same trap twice!

 

 

 

 

 

The Trap How to make it

  1. To Catch a Leprechaun - Step 1 LEPRECHAUN HAT PIT TRAPLeprechauns have big egos, so a giant version of their own hat is irresistible to them. Once they step on the false top, you’ll have caught a 10-gallon prize.So that the top doesn’t give way too soon, use a lightweight bait, such as a crumpled piece of gold foil.Our hat, a recycled oatmeal container, is wrapped with green felt secured with double-sided tape. To make the trap, we cut a hole in the lid (see image), then cunningly concealed it with a circle of green felt that will give way when the leprechaun steps on it.Leprechauns love to break rules. Warning signs are sure to lure them in.Natural materials make these woodland creatures feel at home. Our ladder is made from twigs held together with wood glue.
  2. To Catch a Leprechaun - Step 2 RAINBOW CAGE DROPNo self-respecting leprechaun can resist a giant rainbow. As he gets close and spies the gold bait, his curiosity will get the best of him. When he pinches the pot, down comes the cage!
  3. To Catch a Leprechaun - Step 3A bent wire hanger hidden by a piece of poster board forms the support for the suspended cage. We bent the hook of the hanger into a loop to hold the line.
  4. To Catch a Leprechaun - Step 4We tied fishing line to the top of a plastic berry basket, then threaded the line through the wire loop and back down through the basket. We pulled the line taut and secured it under the bait. To conceal the cage, we tucked fiberfill into the weave of the basket, giving it the look of a fluffy cloud.
  5. To Catch a Leprechaun - Step 5 TRICKY TRAPDOORThis trap draws on time-honored technology: a swinging door cut into the top of the box gives way when the leprechaun tries to make off with the bait.
  6. To Catch a Leprechaun - Step 6You can never have too many rainbows on your trap. This one is made from pipe cleaners.For bait, try chocolate coins, shiny jewels, or even a worn-out doll shoe! (Leprechauns are cobblers by trade.) We glued the coins in a pile to keep them secure when the trap is sprung.Our trapdoor is a flap held up by a tab of card stock (taped in place after the box is decorated).This climbing wall is sure to entice the wee adventurers.Ours consists of small rocks affixed with tacky glue to the sponge-painted box.We covered our box with tissue paper (green, of course) attached with glue stick.Capture the look of the Irish countryside with stones and bits of moss.
  7. HAVE YOU CAUGHT ONE YET
