Born today on the 2nd, October :
The erudite side of Libra comes out strongly in October 2. Be they academics or train ticket inspectors there will be a streak of expertise and knowledge which is always a delight to companions. Many of the women are walking textbooks on country matters. They can tell you that there are 5,000,000 pairs of robin redbreasts in Britain and imitate the soft oo-roo-coo call of the pearly rock dove with its emerald collar. Find wallcharts in their house illustrating edible and poisonous mushrooms and expect to go picking in dew-soaked fields at dawn. (Nothing is more enjoyable.) Children adore being with them because the hedgerows and fields hold no fear. There's no shouting when you put something edible into your mouth. She teaches nettle wisdom, those that sting and others, like the red and white deadnettle flowers which taste of honey at the base (check for insects) and can be candied. With this creature it's fun to pick the young leaves and shoots and bounce off home to cook them like spinach, tossed in butter. More important, October 2 tells kids what's poisonous. The lovely bluebell, graceful delphinium, wild lupin and golden marsh marigold will make you very ill. October 2 creates safety through knowledge, not hysteria. Most men are the same. They are the ones at work who research the history of the business, the local history of buildings and churches nearby. Ask him anything about cricket or football and he can tell you when and where scores were made and matches won and that the famous playwright Samuel Beckett was the only Nobel Prize-winner to play first class cricket - for Dublin University against Northamptonshire in 1925 and 1926. You have to dig it out of them, but it's worth it. If you want something done, get October 2 to do it. They'll find out more, work out the right way, and they'll enjoy every moment.
 
Body :

Many wild flowers can be candied and used to decorate cakes, puddings and ices. Primroses, cowslips, rose petals, mint, violets, red deadnettle, crab apple blossom, forget-me-nots, daisies, apple blossom and almond blossom make dishes look exquisite. To candy flowers, take 3 tsps gum arabic, 3 tbsps orange flower water. Put crystals in small bottle, cover with orange flower water, leave to dissolve for 3 days, shaking frequently. With small paintbrush, coat freshly picked, clean, moisture-free flowers with solution, separating petals. Hold with tweezers to ensure every part is coated. Sprinkle with caster sugar, shake off excess. Dry on paper in warm cupboard. Store in airtight jars.
 
Mind :

October 2 can have an interest in transport trivia. The earliest recorded British railway was a line for horse-drawn wagons at the coal pits in Strelley to Wollaton, Lane End, near Nottingham. Built by Huntingdon Beaumont, a Leicestershire mining engineer, it cost 166 and opened in 1604.
