#Finish poaching the fish. Allow the fish to simmer in the bouillon for about five minutes, or until the flesh is opaque and easily flakes apart. Never let the liquid come to a full boil, since this could cause the fish to get overcooked. Once the fish is ready, use a fish spatula to transfer it to a plate for serving.[[Image:Poach a Fish Step 4.jpg|center]]

#Serve the fish with a velouté sauce. Poached fish is traditionally served with a flavorful sauce called velouté. The sauce is made from the leftover court bouillon mixed with a roux composed of flour and butter. Serve the poached fish with a pour of velouté and some fresh vegetables.

===Disposing of Pigeons===
#Drive a long distance and set the birds free. You won't want to let them go on your own property or they will just roost again in the same spot.<ref>http://www.wildlife-removal.com/pigeon-trapping.html</ref>[[Image:Trap Pigeons Step 10.jpg|center]]

#Drive a long distance and set the birds free. You won't want to let them go on your own property or they will just roost again in the same spot.<ref>http://www.wildlife.
#*This will only really work well if your pigeons have only recently roosted on your property.
+
#*Pigeons that have been in a place for a long time will find their way back, even from a distance.
+
#*Contrary to opinion, pigeons are very intelligent and can find their way back to a roost from very far distances.
+
#*The best combination of methods is to use preventatives like netting and bird strips as well as traps to get rid of a pigeon problem.
+
#Kill the birds using a gun. Killing the pigeons should only be a last resort when all humane methods have failed. You don't want to unnecessarily harm an animal.[[Image:Trap Pigeons Step 11.jpg|center]]
+
#*Only use a gun in a rural area away from other homes. There will likely be local ordinances on this in more crowded areas.
+
#*While pigeons are not always a standard in rural areas, they are not wholly uncommon.
+
#*If you have annoying pigeons on your large property, it will be easy to shoot and kill pigeons with a low caliber gun like a .22 caliber rifle.
+
#*Because pigeons have, over time, developed a tolerance for humans and are rarely scared in their presence, it should not be very difficult to get a good shot.
+
#Use bird-controlling poison. Again, this should only be done as a last resort as it is inhumane.[[Image:Trap Pigeons Step 12.jpg|center]]
+
#*Bird poison can hurt other animals, so be careful if you or your neighbors have pets. Be aware of other non-threatening wildlife in your area as well.
+
#*By baiting and poisoning pigeons, you can easily eliminate them.
+
#*How to dispose of a large number of dead pigeons is a big concern and poison is inhumane, so only poison pigeons as a last resort.
+
#*Try all preventative and humane methods before resorting to this.

=== Getting Your First Bra ===
#Buy a bra when you feel ready. It's a personal choice; some women go their whole lives without wearing a bra! If you feel ready for a bra, ask your mom for one or get a friend, a sister, or other trusted female to go shopping with you for one. If you feel confident enough, you could even go by yourself. The average age to start wearing a bra is 11-13 (year 7/8 or grade 6/7), normally crop tops or training bras at the beginning and the average size is 30-34 band size, and, AA-B cup size. But every girl is different, and some girls can even be D cups at this age. If you don't ''need'' a bra and are 11+, get a crop top or training bra, if you are an A cup or bigger, get a real or "cupped" bra; one of the main problems with girls at this age is nipples poking through shirts. Don't be afraid to wear the bra, though. Almost every girl wears one, it's not like it's a secret! Also, don't worry if people tease you. Just brush it off like the awesome person you are!.[[Image:Enhance Breasts Step 4.jpg|center]]

#Don't Worry, every girl changes at a different pace! There is no set time when puberty starts, and this means that often girls will find they start to change at a different time from other girls their age. This is very normal, but can cause a girl to feel embarrassed or 'different' from her friends. Remember that it won't be long before others start to go through the same changes.[[Image:Be Bright and Sunny Step 6.jpg|center]]

#Am I Normal? - Of course you are going to wonder this about your breasts, your period, your vagina, your hair, eyebrows, pretty much everything! If you notice something very abnormal which could be a medical problem, contact a doctor.[[Image:Not to Be Shy at a New School Step 4.jpg|center]]

-BOTTOM LINE:
*[[Deal With Your Period]]
+
A major negative might be that people start treating you a little different. Perhaps, like a grown up. There might be days you want to throw a brick at someone's face or probably just cry the entire day, These are mainly just mood swings. Don't worry, completely normal at this age. Family, however, might start to seem annoying, but it's not like that. It is important to be confident at all times, irrespective of the situation.

* Newfoundlands are big and bulky. A large room seems a lot smaller when shared with a Newfie! They take up a lot of space in your home and in your car ... you may even need to get a bigger car. According to the Breed Standard, adult males weigh an average of 140-150 lbs and adult females can weigh about 110-120 lbs - that is heavy, especially when they want to sit on your feet, lie on your lap or lean their weight against your leg. An 8 or 10 stone dog running into you, even accidentally, is likely to flatten you.

* Especially when growing, Newfoundlands need a substantial but controlled amount of food of high quality, that is a costly proposition. As an adult, the feeding amount is less than you might expect but again quality of food is important. To avoid digestive problems such as 'bloat' you will always have to feed two smaller meals a day, you can't get away with one large meal. Young Newfoundlands need enough exercise to keep them lean and healthy, but not so much that their soft growing bones, joints, and ligaments become over-stressed and damaged. Adult Newfoundlands need more exercise to keep them in shape, but great care needs to be taken in hot or humid weather for fear of overheating. The proper amount of exercise can be difficult to regulate in giant breeds.

Frequent vacuuming will become a way of life so make sure you're REALLY up for this. Because they are a giant breed, everything about Newfoundlands is much more expensive than for a smaller dog. Apart from the obvious cost of food, insurance is more expensive and worming treatments or other medications which are based on body weight are going to cost a lot more for a Newfoundland than a Chihuahua!

*Tumors can cause headaches, although having a headache doesn't mean you have a tumor. Usually, these headaches will be accompanied by other symptoms, including numbness or weakness of limbs, slurred speech, disturbed vision, epileptic fits, personality changes, poor balance, or difficulty walking. If you experience these symptoms, seek immediate medical attention.
 
*Use common sense when considering any "home remedy." If it seems like it could cause more harm than good, don't use it without consulting your doctor first. If a treatment makes your headache worse, or if you experience other symptoms, stop the treatment and contact your doctor.

A better route to communicate with the girl in the beginning of the relationship is via online messaging clients (i.e. MSN, AIM, etc) or social networking websites (i.e facebook, myspace), as this is a much more casual form of communication and allows the girl some level of control (for example, if they feel threatened or annoyed, they can simply close the chat session, or block the user, which adds a level of security, and will allow them to relax more).

* A good way to boost your confidence when riding is when you ride find a good trustworthy horse just so you can practice emergency dismounts, trotting,cantering, jumping and all those of those horsey sport things. This way you will learn how to bond with your horse and how a horse can bond with you. Always make sure you and your horse get to know each other first just so you and the horse aren't nervous around each other. Relax in the horse and that makes your horse relaxed and you will have no problems but is you act tense an tight in the horse it can sense it and will be spooky and It will get stirred up and you will not enjoy riding. A spooky horse will not boost your confidence so don't make it be that way just relax.
 
*Stay committed, if a horse refuses a jump, stop it as soon as you can and make it stand in front of the jump- maybe it hadn't seen it or something behind it spooked it? Then try again, but remember when jumping, sit back in your before jumping seat so when you jump, you can bend into your jumping position, also, if the horse does duck out, you've already sat back so won't get thrown forward as far and can stay seated more easily. Keep trying the jump, then after 4-5 tries, lower it at one side - the horse will jump the lower side, but try to get it in the middle, it'll think it's jumping  lower, but in fact it's jumping the same height as before. This will also boost your confidence enough to put the jump back properly and then you can try again. Keep your legs on and never think it's going to dodge and out and give up, otherwise the horse will keep doing it and it will get away with it so it'll be harder to jump that jump.
