Easter is the season for weddings and family reunions. As a change from the olives and nuts plus bits try this spread 8 oz. Liver Sausage 1 tablespoonful Chopped Parsley 3 oz. Butter 4 oz. Chopped Mushrooms 1/2 teaspoon Worcester Sauce Salt and Pepper Mayonnaise Finely chop and fry the mushrooms in butter for 4 minutes. Mash with the liver sausage, add seasonings and Mayonnaise to bind. Use as a sandwich filling or on hot buttered toast. And hot mushrooms and green peas in this way :- Line a heavily saucepan with washed lettuce leaves. Add 1 lb. still frozen peas, 1 oz. butter, dash of salt, pepper and nutmeg. Cover with more leaves and firm fitting lid. Cook gently for 15 mins. Discard the lettuce leaves. Add lightly sauteed mushrooms (6 oz, diced and cooked in 1/2 oz. butter). Stir into the peas. Serve in a hot dish garnished with lemon slices. For the spring, the semi-fitted look. Aqua blue and soft pink will hold sway. Already setting the high fashion trend is Alexon's white boucle young line suit. Gay cottons, printed gossamer voile, flimsy cliffons and fine lawn, many with 100-year-old designs, are the key-note of Hor roc kses Spring Collection for easy-to- care-for dresses. Cocktail and formal high-waisted evening dresses are in the same feminine fabrics. new short shifts are also reaching the shops now-in colourful cottons for beach-wear and early holidays. And the frankly exotic--in absolute contrast--Paul Blanche's ''tent:' coat in glazed coffee, black and green with black leather trimming. WERE YOU BORN IN ...... FEBRUARY If you were, the deep mauve translucent amethyst is your birthstone. As it is the stone of St. Valentine, too, it is not surprising that it has close connections with romance and ecclesiastical history. The love affairs of wearers of the amethyst are believed to flow smoothly and rosaries of this gem were at one time thought to exert a pious calm. Today, amethysts are still worn in bishop's rings. This dates back to the times when amethysts were said to inspire a sense of fairness, duty and devotion to high ideals. It was derived from the Greek word ''protected from intoxication." Consequently it has become the stone of authority and is favoured by those who hold positions of command. Wednesday is said to be a "lucky day" for the wearers of the amethyst. OR MARCH Otherwise known as "the gem of eternal youth," the fashionable aquamarine is one of the birthstones for the March born. It is supposed to bring solace and comfort. Endowed with the spirit of hope, it was for many years an amulet. Wearers regarded it as '' the stone of safety." But not only on journeys, for as Camillus Leonardus tells us: "The aquamarine renders the bearer cheerful and increases and preserves married happiness." The bloodstone, a red gem with dark green markings, is the alternative birthstone for those born in March. In olden times it was ground to a powder to stop bleeding, and naturally enough, it was the talisman of the fighter. The qualities of wisdom, patience, constancy and endurance have since been associated with this "man's jewel."

Reference Name LL/04/01

The monthly Lincolnshire Life magazine was founded in April, 1961 with the intention of championing the cause of Lincolnshire by recording its history, folklore, culture, personalities, dialect, art, etc.

The magazine has 'thumbnail' sketches of the history of all the county's towns and many of its 700-plus villages, histories of its major houses and castles and profiles of many of its smaller houses, in private occupation. There are accounts of major and minor incidents in the county's history, augmented through the magazine's correspondence columns and details of the lives of many of the county's personalities both past and present.

By recording aspects of the county's life which were happening at the time but which no longer exist, the magazine now has the only written account of some of these customs or events.
