    Busy Betty’s bevy of beautiful birds

    WITH many years’ experiencein tax, SMSF auditing andaccounting, Amable Management director Tony Pollard has the knowledge and experience to provide all Bathurst residents with the most up-to- date advice to minimise their tax.

    Tony, who was born, raised and educated in Bathurst, is a local who knows local conditions.

    As the end of the financial year approaches, Tony recommends businesses reduce their assessable income in several ways.

    These can range from delaying the derivation of assessable income to prepaying (up to 13 months) next

    year’s expenses. “If you are expecting a tax refund

    this year, you must nominate a bank account on your return,” he said.

    “Also, if your adjusted taxable income is less than $37,000 then in certain circumstances the ATO will top up your super with an additional $500.

    “There are many other steps an individual or business can take and I would be more than pleased to have a ‘no obligation’ talk with interested persons in order to help them.”

    For all your taxation and accounting needs, contact Tony and the Amable team on 6334 2577.

    Memorial Entertainment Centre unjumble the words so that he could make a sign?


    ■ ■ ■ ARE you interested in birds and

    drawing? Then take a look at The Quintessential

    Bird: The Art of Betty Temple Watts, by Viola Temple Watts, published by the National Library of Australia.

    This amazing lady started to recognise local flora and fauna in the 1940s and sketch them.

    She joined the Bird Observers Club and the Royal Australian Ornithologists Union (RAOU), now Birds Australia.

    She was commissioned in 1958 by the Postmaster-General’s department to depict a black-backed magpie for a stamp.

    Later, Betty’s designs were used for a full series of Australian bird stamps.

    Seven pre-decimal stamps were issued in 1964 and 1965 and eight decimal ones in 1966, five of them converted from pre- decimal designs.

    Betty was a humble woman with patience and persistence. She had exceptional powers of observation, capturing the essential characters of a bird.

    If you look at her artwork, the birds really come alive because they are not just sitting, they are feeding, flying, socialising and always in action.

    ■ ■ ■ ARE you having a party? An afternoon

    tea? Then cookies and cupcakes are just the party food for you.

    If you have a theme, you can decorate your food the way you like.

    Try these recipes. You may need an adult to help with the oven.

    COOKIES – makes 24 small biscuits. ■ Plain flour 300g (6oz) ■ Castor sugar 100g (2oz) ■ Butter 200g (4oz) Rub all the ingredients between your

    fingers and thumbs. Make a ball. Set the oven to 190C (375F, gas mark 5). 1. Roll out the ball. 2. Cut out the shapes. 3. Place the cookies on a baking tray. Bake for 15 minutes.

    Sprinkle everything with flour so the dough won’t stick to the rolling pin.

    CUPCAKES – makes 16 cupcakes. ■ Castor sugar 125g (4oz) ■ Butter 125g (4oz) ■ 2 eggs ■ Self-raising flour 125g (4oz) ■ Few drops of vanilla essence ■ Baking powder 1tsp Put everything in a bowl and whisk it. Set the oven to 190C (375F, gas mark 5). 1. Fill up the paper cases with a teaspoon

    of mixture in each case. 2. Beat the cupcakes for 20 minutes. 3. Leave them to cool before decorating. Now is the fun part. Time to decorate your cakes and cookies. Food colouring is strong, so just start

    with a toothpick to get your icing the colour you want.

    Spoon the icing into the centre of the cake and let it run to the edges.

    Your icing should be smooth and not too runny.

    Decorate with lollies, sprinkles, liquorice, icing, sugar balls.

    Make them into creatures or ghoulish people if you are having a ghoulish feast or spooky feast.

    Use your imagination. ■ ■ ■
