Who gives a shit ?

On the way to work on Thursday I read a local newspapers headline “Harry cavorts naked in Las Vegas” (one has to presume its Hooligan Harry from the UK.......yes Ii was right ), my first thought was “who Frikken cares” actually it was “who F^&%king cares” but thought t at would be to rude to write in the Blog. I then  thought Nah we expect it from that privileged asshole, it would be headline news if it said. Normal hardworking man from PE cavorts naked in Las Vegas and that person was me. I mean who cares if Harry is waving his “Todger” (that’s upper class speak for Willy, penis, one eyed snake “YOU GET THE PICTURE” )In some Yank skanks (that’s lower class speak for estcourt, executive sales person etc etc) face.............well a few by the sound of it. I mean really who really wants to see his crown jewels? Apparently Charles gave him a stern talking to and asked him to keep his willy out of the news for the next couple of weeks.  Mmmmmmm must be lekker to a royal ass hole.    

A board of enquiry has been set up for the Marikana shooting incident last week, well it wasn’t really an incident more like Target practice for the SAP. You may have realized that I am not really sympathetic to those miners that got shot dead, you show up in a mean  mood brandishing panga’s assegaai’s (large spears for those who may not know) as well as firearms. One of the excuses of why they decided that it would be a good idea to take on the police brandishing automatic weapons was that they had all clubbed in a few R and gone to the local witch doctor to get some muti that would make them bullet proof.  So the various organizations or unions that are trying to downplay the role of the barbaric strikers are using muti as an excuse to why they wanted to hack to pieces and a burn a few more cops or security staff. So while they feel muti might deflect the blame one thing for sure is that the muti used did not deflect the bullets.................just aske 34 pissed off customers (sorry dead customers) as well as a number who were wounded  who will want their money back next time they see the witch doctor................”hope he has muti that works for him”.

The dude that shot 77 people in Norway last year was sentenced to 21 years imprisonment..................21 years that’s 3.6 months for every person he killed. I know those Scandinavian countries are lenient and “uber” liberal but seriously 21 years for killing 77 people, surely they could have given him life. Can u imagine if he had killed fewer people he would have been out after a month or two.    

THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE and shows why we need to be vigilant that the world does not get taken over by militant Muslims and persecute those that are different (religious persecution has been responsible and is still responsible for so many people’s deaths)


UK’s Bedfordshire Police’s rules regarding terrorists and dangerous criminals

If they’re non-Muslim
• Consider the most opportune time of day to be able to arrest suspects with minimum resistance
• Apply all necessary force to enter the premises and arrest suspects accordingly.
If they’re Muslim:
• Community leaders must be consulted before raids into Muslim houses.
• Officers must not search occupied bedrooms and bathrooms before dawn.
• Use of police dogs will be considered serious desecration of the premises.
• Cameras and camcorders should not be used in case of capturing women in inappropriate dress.
• If people are praying at home officers should stand aside and not disrupt the prayer. They should be allowed the opportunity to finish.
• Officers should take their shoes off before raiding a Muslim house.
• The reasons for pre-dawn raids on Muslim houses needs to be clear and transparent.
• Officers must not touch holy books or religious artefacts without permission.
• Muslim prisoners should be allowed to take additional clothing to the station.
 With this continuing appeasement, no wonder it’s now predicted that
Britain will become an Islamic state by 2070.
(Time to think about your children.)

Friday night we went to the comedy club at the boardwalk casino to see Carl do some stand up, Carl the owner of the guest house I always stay in when  I am in EL, was lekker to meet a couple of friends and have a good laugh.

Gabby is riding up a storm and also getting to practice in the traffic by either following Tania when she uses the car or we ride together on the bike and the scooter. Can’t tell you how grown she feels being able to ride her own vehicle.

The All Blacks beat the Wallabies 22/0 in a one sided match while the Boks did not bath themselves in glory by clawing back from 13/3 to draw the match 16/16 after a fortuitous charge down by Frans Steyn to score near to the posts. I am seriously worried what the All Blacks and the Wallabies will do to us when we play them. First 1 day international against the Poms was washed out so no winner or loser in that one. Proteas now are number 1 in all 3 forms of the game: 5 day, 1 day and 20/20.......let’s hope we keep that for a while.   

Don’t know (or can’t remember) if I told you that i have been asked to contribute a chapter to a book that is being published in Portugal about the Portuguese wars in Africa, I have been asked to write about Daniel Roxo, so been busy with that and nearly done. A little nervous that it will not be good enough.................oh well let’s see what happens.  

Sat afternoon we had a braai at Ryan’s as is my Nephews 4th birthday today (Sunday 26th) was nice to see my father in law as have not seen in a while.

Well that’s about for this week, not much else to tell you....”yeah boring week” off to EL on Monday for a couple of days.


"Shoot to kill"

Don’t know about you but i believe that if some asshole shoots at you, you have the right to shoot back and defend yourself and this is even more so the case if you shoot at cops, if you do be prepared to face the consequences. Now as yet we do not know the full story surrounding the incident this week at Marikana Platinum mine other than up to 34 miners were shot after attacking the cops and that Joooooliaaaas is on the miners side (no shock there) and wants Zuma and the police minister to resign(again no Frikken surprise there either).  I mean this is what this tool had to say

“They had no right to shoot," Malema said, even if the miners had opened fire first. Malema is the first politician (and I think they are using that word very loosely here) to address the miners at the site during a more than weeklong saga in which 10 people were killed before Thursday's shootings - including two police officers butchered to death and two mine security guards whom strikers burned alive in their vehicle. He said he had come because the government had turned its back on the strikers.
 Ok so we can allow the striking miners to butcher cops and set security guards alight in their van but no action must be taken..............Are you F%$king nuts Malema. I can bet all the tea in china and all the tender money you have in hidden bank accounts that if those “poor downtrodden and misunderstood miners” came to set you alight, butcher you or fired upon you, you would shoot to kill......................so don’t be a twat.    
Seems now this “massacre” had the Liberals all clamouring to charge the cops with murder and have the fired and then what’s next ?, let’s give them cattle prods to defend themselves?  Or better yet just let people do whatever they fuck they want  because they are upset and angry.Hell even the UK now has armed cops and you can’t get more liberal than them. I know that some will argue that we can’t have cops running around excessive force and that’s a valid argument, but in this case 2 policemen had been killed earlier in the week (sorry not killed “butchered like animals”) 

If I was a cop I would also have opened up with everything i had and more, Bring on the grenades and rocket launchers...............I have no sympathy for those men because they deserved ewhat they got.................plain and simple. And i also get a “Juk” in my pants when I see that the press have made such a huge deal of this but yet we allow Farmers to be killed on a almost daily basis..................but hell no its “shame for the miners who are animals and should be allowed to kill at will and niot face any consequences”........................BULL SHIT, “SHOOT TO KILL”

Oooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhh yeah Port Elizabeth and the eastern cape now have a Super 15 team that will be competing in the 2013 competition, cannot wait. Although the fact that it’s for 1 year only as the last placed SA team on the log will play a relegation/promotion match with the Lions to see who will be in Super 15 in 2014. First they are assuming that Super Kings will be last and also its a biot difficult for Lions to keep a Super 15 team in place if there good players (oh yeah that’s right they don’t have any...hahaha) and it’s not fair on Super Kings to buy players for the Super 15 that may only see them play a year....................anyway let’s see how that all unfolds as the Kings do have a huge mountain to climb. 

Still with Rugby the Boks beat the Argies 27/6 yesterday but I was not convinced that this team could in fact beat Australia or the All Blacks, yes it’s a young team but surely you should be scoring 4 tries against such opposition in the first half..................I bet you NZ and the Aussies score 4 tries for a bonus point against the Argentineans.

Weather not that bad this weekend had some sun and better yet no rain for a change.  A couple of local cemeteries have been closed as not deemed safe for workers to dig holes as well as there being a possibility that body fluids etc could be seeping into the water table due to coffins etc rotting due to all the water. I stand corrected but i believe we have either beaten the record for rain recorded in a year or we are close to it and we still have 4 and a half months of the year to go.

Summer or at least Spring is on its way as when i go to work in the morning now its light and its getting darker later, can’t tell you how much i am looking forward to spending time on the beach, that’s what I really enjoy about PE.    

Well that’s it for this week, not much else to say except have a great week and be safe.

Snow Lie

A record was set in SA this week with it being the first time that it has snowed in all 9 provinces at the same time. Clarens was snowed in as were many other places in SA. Even Joburg had snow, as can be imagined much excitement by children and adults alike. Claren’s was covered with a thick blanket and on Face book many photos where uploaded to show all of us no longer living in the village just what we were missing out on.

August in SA is woman’s month and 9 August is a public holiday I thought I would re-post this post that I came across while surfing the net. (Well worth a read and I agree 100% with it)

Take your Women’s Day and shove it*

[Warning: this post contains a lot of bad language and shouting. My parents should stop reading now.]

Dear Government (big, small, national and local).Here’s an idea. Take your pathetic, meaningless, mind-blowingly expensive and stomach-churningly patronising Women’s Day and cancel it. Cancel the entire idea of “women’s month”. Tell me, what is the FUCKING point?

Trash that ridiculous, pointless, bloated Dept of Women, Children and People with Disabilities (how’s that for neatly categorising us little ladies – not only does possession of a vagina constitute a disability, but vagina-owners are as powerless and lacking in agency as children). It’s no more than a particularly sanctimonious event-planning agency. The departmental mission? “Ooh, women and children are getting raped and abused, they bear the brunt of criminally lousy education and brutal poverty: LET THEM EAT CUPCAKES! Plus we’ll throw in some glossy leaflets, and send someone in a designer suit to pat heads and make a speech full of platitudes before we jet off for another shopping trip or international conference.”

So ditch the pointless sodding public holiday (estimated cost to the economy: SEVEN BILLION). Stop bleating about the month of women. It’s PATHETIC, considering it’s open season on South African women 24/7, year in, year out. Our rape stats are a global disgrace (Goddess, how many times do I have to FUCKING say this, the WORST in the world for a country not at war – the scale is unimaginable, the suffering ditto), black lesbians have “carve me up and smash my brains in” signs stamped on their backs, rural women and children live in relentless, grinding misery and poverty HUGELY exacerbated by patriarchal strictures, which are of course absolutely sacred (and the fact that the Traditional Courts Bill, which would render these women even more helpless and wretched, is actually allowed to pollute national airtime is a bloody disgrace). We are failing, no, betraying, no, ABUSING children by callously pissing away their only shot at an education, their ONLY chance of a life of decent employment, a form of abuse that will affect girls worse than boys; we’re losing ground in terms of infant and maternal mortality; women without cash are being denied C-sections at state hospitals and giving birth to stillborn babies on the floor as a result. SO DON’T TALK TO ME ABOUT FUCKING WOMEN’S DAY YOU BOZOS.

Here’s a better idea. Instead of the jamborees and a long weekend of more boozing and beatings and rapes, take the money – the obscene piles and piles of it you intend to waste – and use it to fund Rape Crisis, which is having to CLOSE ITS FUCKING DOORS because you don’t think it’s worth supporting, never mind that it does priceless work, not just in enabling women and their families to pick up their lives after they’ve been blown apart, but in taking an enormous burden off both the public health and criminal justice systems. Fund the Saartjie Baartman Centre for Women and Children, which is literally having bake sales to keep running. All those NGOs that have lost their overseas funding because of the economic crisis – how about funding them, the hundreds that work with the poorest of the poor (which, SURPRISE! equates women and children), which do invaluable work for women with TB or Aids, which support women who are raising grandchildren, running crèches, soup kitchens, micro-employment schemes, food gardens, hospices and all the heroic things that South African women do to keep this country running, NO FUCKING THANKS TO YOU.

Stop whining about the Lotto (an additional tax on the poor) and big business, and how “they need to come to the party”. International funders have been warning for South African NGOs for years, you’re not a baby democracy any more, YOUR government needs to start picking up the tab for this. And so you bloody well ought. What’s next, asking the Lotto or big business to supply the state with ambulances?

So grow the fuck up. Cancel the froth and bubbles. What you have reduced the 1956 Women’s March to is a travesty. That was an occasion of extraordinary dignity and power, and we’d like to remember and honour it without having to use sickbags, please. Lilian Ngoyi and Albertina Sisulu and the thousands of brave women who took part that day are squirming in their graves at your appalling, ongoing, almost CASUAL abandonment of this country’s women, especially the poorest ones. The public spectacle of hypocrisy that is Women’s Day is just rubbing salt into their wounds.
(my note) If that is not bad enough  see that they are going to be building a R100 000 000  (yes 100 million) memorial to commemorate the woman’s march of 1956, are the Frikken serious just think what that money could buy and be used for that would

We won a Bronze in kayaking as well as a silver when Caster came from the back of the field to finish second in the 800m final................must say she ran her balls off to get second.............So well done Casta well done. Oscar and the rest of the 4 x 400m relay team came 8th in the Final this after being allowed to run after the 2nd leg runner was tripped by a Kenyan in the semi final, so he got to run which is good, rumour has it that Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump) wants to make a movie about him.

So SA won 6 medals this Olympics, the best ever as far as I can remember. 3 in swimming, 2 in rowing/kayaking  and one on the track, so it would seem we are better in water than on land. Which is not what the SA navy is good at, last week on an exercise between Port Elizabeth and Durban they managed to crash a submarine into the sea bed (are they hiring taxi drivers for the navy now?) so now the three submarines that cost 8 Billion rand in the infamous arms scandal are all “F#%*kd one has been out of commission since 2007 when the person driving it hit the quay. I found this clip about a submarine tour that was taking place in SA , read the highlited part..................I mean where else would you be able to use the submarine...............On a highway ?
Huge accident about 200 meters from our house on Saturday morning that had two fire engines, ambulance  and even traffic police (must have been big to get them off their lazy asses). Seems two youngsters came down Constance and did not realise that there was a stop street at the bottom of the road, they then hit another bakkie at speed and parts of car etc flew everywhere. One of the bakkies hit two pedestrians and one of the occupants of the one bakkie had to be cut out of the car.............Fun and excitement.  

Been teaching Gabby how to ride her bike and she is doing really well, much better than when my dad tried to teach me all those years ago. I remember lots of crying, shouting and swearing and that was just from my dad. Anyway got to get the basics right and then we can start going on longer rides as at the moment Gabby is only allowed in the immediate area that we live in.  

Last two day in PE it’s been windy and wet, has been raining almost nonstop for the last 2 days.....................Please summer come soon, real soon .

Ok well that’s about for this week, will be presenting SAMTRAC at our PE offices for the next two weeks, so got to do some prep work.


What an “Oarsome” week for SA at the Olympics

So the main news this week is that SA has picked up  3 x Gold medals (well 7 X if you count the extra 3 medals for the rowing dudes)  and a silver, great achievement and what really impressed me is the rowers one who has the surname Brittain pipped the Poms at the post (which made victory even sweeter) I know that certain people will lambast me for not being true to my roots, but I am  not a transplant I don’t straddle the island and SA with my private parts dipping in the ocean. I am a South African, made a conscious decision to be so and Proud that I am one. That’ what you have to do if you move to another country, as someone famous once said “you can’t have your cake and eat it. Of in this case “you can’t have your koeksister and eat it”. Love some of the expat sites and you see the same names popping up that when there is kak in SA they are “just so happy and blessed to have left that god forsaken country, but when SA achieves or does good things they are ‘Just so proud to be South Africans” ....................”Hypocrites”

But anyway Well done SA athletes not just those that have won medals so far but those who have competed and did not win and those yet to compete. Oscar Pistorius is the talk of London he is the first person with no legs to compete in the Olympics, another first brought to you by South Africa........................"Go Oscar"   

Drove up to Aliwal North (Pole)on Wednesday afternoon  and there was snow on them darn hills, not seen snow for a while so naturally I stopped and made a snowball and threw it at some unsuspecting cow across the road. When I got to Jamestown i stopped to put in some petrol and when i wound the window down I thought someone had thrown a  snowball in my face, it was that cold. The last 20kms to Aliwal was lekker because the full moon was rising  above the hills on my right and on my left the sun was setting behind the distant hills. Must say looking across the veld with the kopies in the distant and the full moon rising  with a purple hue in the sky was nothing short of breathtaking, my cell phone camera is KAK so I did not even attempt to take a picture, but that memory will live on in my mind for a long time to come. 

Got to Aliwal and thought my guest house was in a certain direction, thank goodness it was not because the area i thought it was in was not as the chosen people would say “kosher”... ..........  was booked into a guest house across the Orange river in the Free State (where nothing is free and everything is in a state). Had to cross the bridge that was damaged by a truck hitting it about 7 months ago so there was a stop and go. Checked into La Riviera a working farm with guest accommodation, must say very  nice and the under floor heating a huge hit.  Thursday morning I woke up got changed and when i walked outside my legs got so cold that for a brief moment I thought that I may have forgotten to put on my  pants. The cold clung to my skin and the material obviously not working as an effective barrier. You know it’s cold when  the fountain outside your room has frozen over and the water that the general worker threw on the car to de – frost the windows froze so quickly that I could not get the door open, it was frozen shut.....................
Gabby got her bike this week so as you can imagine she is chuffed, gave her a lesson today, Sunday 5th August and must say she did not too bad, still some way to go but she will get there.

On Thursday the PE municipality announced that 2 main water pipes filling water to the metros reservoirs had collapsed due to the big rains we have had the last while, so that means areas are and have run out of watery, bit Ironic when u think about it we have had flooding but we don’t have water..................at time of writing (Thursday evening) the situation is the following

Reports are being received of taps running dry in parts of Port Elizabeth, as the current, sudden water crisis begins to bite. The crisis was caused by two of the Metro's main supply pipes being damaged in the recent heavy rain, resulting in the supply from the Churchill- and Impofu dams to the metro being interrupted.

Listeners have already advised Algoa FM News of taps that are dry in Newton Park, Fernglen, Mount Pleasant and Schauderville, among others. The municipality says it is extremely concerned that some residents deliberately fill up large containers of water, depleting the supply in the reservoirs at a much faster rate. They have been asked to consider other people, as the Municipality has issued a call that Everybody should conserve water over the next few days.

An update regards the situation is that while some people did experience the loss of water and some restaurants etc did close because of that it was not as bad as some people (The sensationalists) tried to make out, you always get people that try to make things out worse than they actually are. We have not had loss of water and don’t expect we will. So just in case you were worried we are not dying of thirst, we do not smell and most importantly “the pubs are still open”  

So the textbook fiasco is nearly over Angie “get an f “ the MEC for education in Limpopo is however not going to bend to pressure from anyone, including the “ANC Yut league” to resign until a full enquiry has been conducted, you see its not her fault, I am sure she will use what will from now on be known ‘Verwoerd defence” I had to laugh because some tool from the department of education said that the Crisis is nearly over and most students except for a minority of grade 8 students had received textbooks................well don’t give yourself a raise because its August that’s 8 months into the year, surely they should have had them in January. The MEC also now has plans to ensure this does not happen again. You say that every year and yet it continues to happen. But don’t worry the kids won’t fail because we will pass them ................Eish it was not their fault so how can they be punished.

The Super 15 was won by the Chiefs they beat the Sharks 37 / 6 it was a Snotklap of note and to be honest a bit disappointing, really thought the game would have been closer than the way it panned out. Oh well always next year I suppose.   

Well that’s it for this week
