Have we lost our sense of Zuma?

Well the “Other” news this week is that  petrol goes up 75c a liter next Wednesday, 75 Frikken cents, “that’s harsh”. Means that everything else is going to go up in price, I don’t know who the F&&^%ker is who works out the price, but he always seems to pick the day when the Rand/Dollar exchange rate is at its worst and the price of crude oil is at its highest.  Only a small part of the increase is for the actual petrol price, the rest goes to “dark holes” that we have no control over.
SASOL is a company that was built in the 80’s when we had oil sanctions against us, it was developed to make petrol from coal, this they did successfully. My question is “why if they make petrol from coal, do they still charge us the petrol from oil price that is based on exchange rate and price of a barrel of crude oil”?  as yet not been explained to me in a manner that will convince me that we  are not being bent over and ..........................”u get the picture.    

Well as can be imagined this week has been dominated by the Oscar Pistorius ‘did he or did he not know it was Revva in the bathroom and did he or did he not premeditate killing her” . Reeva was cremated on Tuesday at a local crematorium (Port Elizabeth)and it was the start of Oscar’s trial, sorry meant bail hearing, but it did become a trial within a bail hearing as the state wanted to have bail denied and tried to prove that he did in fact pre-meditate the shooting of Reeva and the defence on the other hand had the investigating officer taken off the case due to the fact he shot at a mini bus  taxi a while back and is in court later this year to answer those charges . Oscar has lost all of his sponsorship's and its cost him R700 000 just this week in lawyer fees, really need to think before you shoot your girlfriend through a closed bathroom door. But hey I can see a book and a movie deal coming out of this one, seems that the famous can always make money........”Good or bad”. Can u imagine how ironic it would be if a movie was made and it was nominated for an Academy award and it won, And the Oscar goes to................................ “Jail”  

On Friday he was given bail for R1. 00 and had his legs taken away, is not allowed to shoot anyone else prior to his trial and may not flee to another country .............”Just joking” here are the bail conditions Bail was set at R1m, R100 000 of which was paid to secure Pretorius's release. The balance must be paid by 1 March. Pistorius was whisked away in a Land Rover soon after the payment was made, as media gave chase. The strict bail conditions include that he not be charged with any offence relating to violence against women. He would not be allowed to return to Silver Woods country estate, scene of the shooting, unless accompanied by the estate manager; he has to surrender his passport; he cannot apply for travel documents; he must report to the Brooklyn police station on Mondays and Fridays at set times; and he can't take banned substances, drugs or alcohol.

To be honest I am all Oscar’d out, let the law take its course and he needs to deal with where the chips fall. All I know is that if it where my daughter he would not need a bail hearing or a trial, I would not “unlike Reeva’s dad has indicated he may be able to do” Forgive, just isn’t in my nature. Accidents do happen that’s for sure, but this was no accident and ........................well let’s just leave it there.   

News just in, seems that killing women whether by accident or intentionally runs in the Pistorius family: Pretoria - The brother of Paralympian star Oscar Pistorius is facing a charge of culpable homicide and was set to begin his trial last week. This was revealed by e-News Channel Africa (eNCA) on Eyewitness news charge on Sunday morning.

Carl Pistorius was allegedly involved in a collision with a female biker in 2010. His trail would have started on Thursday, a day before his brother was granted bail in the high-profile case against him following the shooting death of the athlete’s model girlfriend on 14 February 2013. A legal representative confirmed that Carl’s case was postponed to March and said he was confident Carl would be acquitted.

Not sure if you're aware of this but we have a large number of South Africans training in Cuba to become Dr’s, seems that it’s a combined initiative between the SA and Cuban governments. Anyway here is the news reports regards these ungrateful swine.
Aaron Motsoaledi about to sing for his supper 
Johannesburg - Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has written letters to South African medical students in Cuba who embarked on an illegal strike, defining the government's position on the strike, his department said on Thursday. On February 7, 187 of the 1 200 South African students studying medicine in Cuba went on strike, spokesperson Joe Maila said in a statement. Their demands include a more than 300-percent stipend increase, that a health attache be sent to Cuba, and that they no longer want to be served any meal that contains pork. “In dealing with this matter the department suspected that there might also be problems of cultural differences, adaptability and perhaps psychosocial changes, which make it difficult for them to cope with their studies,” he said.
“In this regard, the department promptly dispatched a team consisting of a senior social worker, a senior psychologist, HR manager and a doctor... to assist the students accordingly.” He said the team joined the ambassador in Cuba, academic staff at the university and the Cuban government to negotiate with the students. During the negotiations the students gave the embassy two ultimatums, Maila added.
“That the ambassador sign a document that these demands will be met or they come back home,” he said. “Ever since the South African-Cuban medical programme started, South Africa has never had a health attache in Cuba. The minister decided last year already to appoint, and sent a health attache to Cuba.”
The attache was expected to start in January but had to complete other commitments, and the department said it was “ not understandable why this matter is arising” because a decision was made a long time ago.  He added that on the issue of food, it has always been a matter negotiated between students and universities, even in South Africa. “Up to now we know of no student who has to abandon studies because such a matter was not resolved. Our students in Cuba are usually served alternate diets consisting of beef, chicken or pork.”
“However, for the two or three weeks, the Cuban government had problems in acquiring beef and chicken, hence they could only serve what was available, which was pork,” he added. Maila added that the stipend would not change as accommodation, food, transport and tuition is jointly sponsored by the two governments.
“For the students to firmly believe that if such a demand is not met they rather come back home, have left the minister with no option but to grant them their wish, because under no condition will the government be willing to meet such an outrageous and unreasonable demand of $700 (about R6 200) per month.
“In the letter written to individual students, the minister has stated this point unambiguously and emphasised that at no stage will such a demand ever be entertained,” he said. The students currently receive a stipend of $200 (about R1 800). – Sapa: as I said ungrateful sods, the average Cuban family would love to have $200 to spend on a monthly basis but many live on less than that and still have to pay for food, transport etc.......................just send the Shits home and make them pay back what it has already cost the two governments to train, house and feed them so far.
Talking about Dr’s seems that in the UK you will now be tested and have to pass an test that shows you can speak, read and write English prior to you being let loose on the unsuspecting public after a German Locum practising in the UK killed a pensioner by giving him 10 times the recommended dose of a pain killer. So you have to speak English in England  to become a Dr, perhaps this will also spill over to teachers, lawyers, policemen..................??   

Super 15 at the Bay started this Saturday with the Super Kings taking on the Western Force , Sharks beat Cheetahs 29/22  and the Bulls beat the Stormers 25/17

This what the news reports said about the Kings/Western Force game: The Southern Kings gave themselves a dream welcome to Vodacom Super Rugby with a passionate performance to beat the Western Force 22-10 at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on Saturday. Confounding their critics and shocking the rest of the competition, the Kings were out to give the rest of the rugby world a firm message that they belonged in Super Rugby, no matter who disagreed with them. And while the merits of that argument have not been settled and are in particular dispute in places like Johannesburg, there is no doubting they produced a sensational game to grind out a win against the Australian side. Two tries by Sergeal Peterson, who three months ago was still putting on his school uniform, plus some heroic tackling and seizing opportunities when they came, made it a night to remember for the new franchise.

Sergeal Peterson
I was there what a night to remember, we sat in front of Sergeals classmates from last year and we had a ball with much celebrating and signing going on when he scored not only 1 but 2 tries,  so to all those assholes out there that said we don’t deserve a Super 15 team and that we would not win a game................”Up yours” yeah it’s a long season and 1 swallow a summer does not make, as they say in the classics, but no matter what happens the rest of the season, we have at least done better than the Lions 2 seasons ago who lost every single Super 15 match.  

Thought would just pop this in to remind us about how great and Peaceful Islam is and why so many Muslim men want to protect Sharia law


Islam's Black Slaves notes:  "the Quran stipulated that female slaves might lawfully be enjoyed by their masters." Mohammad himself owned many slaves, some of whom he captured in wars of conquest and some he purchased.  The names of forty slaves owned by Mohammad are recorded by Muslim chroniclers.  Islamic law (Sharia) contains elaborate regulations for slavery.  A slave had no right to be heard in court (testimony was forbidden by slaves), slaves had no right to property, could marry only with the permission of the owner, and were considered to be chattel, that is the movable property, of the slave owner.  Muslim slave owners were specifically entitled by Sharia law to sexually exploit their slaves,  including hiring them out as prostitutes.
One reason why very little has been written about the Arab involvement in slavery is that traditional Islamic culture still condones slavery.  The Sharia, the codified Islamic law which is based upon the teachings and example of Mohammad, contains explicit regulations for slavery.  One of the primary principles of Islam is following the example of Mohammad.  Whatever Mohammad did, we must do, what he forbade, we must forbid, what he did not forbid, we may not forbid. As Mohammad himself traded in slaves and owned slaves, accumulating multiple wives, even marrying a six year old, and having concubines - slavery and the sexual exploitation of women is deeply ingrained in Islamic tradition.  Muslim nations had engaged in the slave trade for over 600 years before Europe became involved in the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. 


Almost 200 years after the British outlawed the slave trade in 1807, slave raids and the sale of slaves in Muslim markets continues in countries like Sudan.  The slave trade remained legal in Saudi Arabia until 1962, when under international pressure it was finally abolished.  However, there are persistent, credible reports, that slavery persists in Saudi Arabia, and even that slaves from Sudan are ending up in Saudi Arabia.  Recently, a former slave from the Nuba Mountains of Sudan, Mende Nazer, had her autobiography:  "Slave:  My True Story" publishedMende was captured in 1992, she was first a slave to a rich Arab family in Khartoum, and then in 2002 to a Sudanese diplomat in London, from whom she escaped and sought political asylum. 

Imagine living on a street with this name, so what’s your address madam?  “Oh I live at number 69 Cocks Complex Blue waters Port Elizabeth officer”. Great address to run a brothel from don’t you think, not one that you would want to tell the local Dominee or your kids nursery school teacher. (was taken in Blue water bay PE)

Well that's about it for this week, got a busy week ahead


“And the Oscar goes to”? -----------------------------“JAIL”

This week’s Blog was originally going to be called The F word and lead with Eskom and the fat cats that run it, however with the news on Thursday morning (Valentine’s day) that paraplegic runner  Oscar Pistolorius, sorry Pistorius AKA the Blade runner had accidentally shot his girlfriend (FHM model and Lawyer) Reeva Steenkamp 4 times through a bathroom door, yes 4 times, how do you accidentally shoot someone 4 times and while they are in the bathroom...................??

If he did shoot her accidentally let’s have a look at this rationally. Does he sleep with a gun next to him ? if he does not he would have had to fetch it surely in that time he would have said “is there anyone there” and she would have replied Yes honey it’s me. She lived there so it’s not like he was not expecting anyone to come home. Apparently there is reports of domestic violence 2 -3 hours before the incident, mmmmmmm lets see what happens but methinks that there is more to this than meets the eye especially when u hear that neighbors told the cops that there had been shouting and loud noises before the gunshots and the police confirmed that there had been domestic violence cases from the house in the past, seems that the Blade runner has anger issues and is a gun freak. I believe that he shot her on purpose after an argument and the “break in “ scenario was a way to deflect attention away from the Oscar that the public see and read about. I also believe that Oscar has tattoo’s of scriptures on his arms and back, wonder if one of them says ‘Thou shalt not kill” “ Oh and it was neighbor that called the police, not Oscar.
There is however one concern for me , last week 2 sick bastards raped and mutilated a 17 year old girl, they were arrested and then given bail, I am sure that there court case will take a while. Jub Jub some half assed singer wanna be drove into a group of people last year drag racing under influence of alcohol and drugs and killed a few, his court case has dragged on for 2 years, even though there was plenty of witnesses. Oscar was arrested a few hours after the shooting, taken to jail, refused bail (that’s almost unheard of)and today he is in court being charged with  either murder or premeditated murder..................mmmm, wonder if they will make an exception and bring back the death penalty for him if found guilty. Now that’s the way it should be , but should be the same for everyone. Another interesting issue is why no immediate outcry from the white population for the death penalty?? “perhaps because he is a celebrity, Afrikaans or just white” ??...................double standards in both issues. Not sure what he is going to be charged with but if all else fails he can always use the “Shabir Shaik”, “Jacki Selebi” or “Shrien Dewani” defence and pretend he has some incurable disease, or has had a mental breakdown. Or he could perhaps the Jacob Zuma excuse of “Verwoed or Apartheid made me do it”.
As is the norm when a famous person Fucks up, us lesser mortals make jokes about the situation, Oscar was not in jail 10 minutes and the jokes had started, here they are: Things are not that bad for Oscar, on the bright side , he has the best parking space at court . Oscar Pistolrius’s girlfriend must have known he was armed, there the only limbs he  has. Oscar misunderstood when Reeva said to him “babe I want you to take me out on Valentine’s day”. Reeva bought him leg warmers for him for Valentines and that’s when the argument started, his legal team will have to come up with a defence strategy and just Run with it, when Reeva asked Oscar to give her shots (slang for sex in SA) that’s not what she was expecting. I hope he has money to pay his legal fees, otherwise taxpayers may need to foot the bill. If he runs out of money during the trial his family will probably give him a leg up. His favourite movie ? My bloody Valentine or Valentine’s day massacre, Oscar took his girl-fiends breath away this Valentine’s day............................Sick I know but some good ones.
Perhaps Nike who was the sponsors of Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong and of Oscar should maybe change their logo to “Don't do it”     
News just in is that he is being charged with premeditated murder as they found a bullet hole in the bedroom and 3 through the bathroom door, so it looks like he shot Reeva once in bedroom and she ran to the bathroom where he shot her another 3 times through the door. Premeditated  = (intentional, calculated, deliberate) methinks he is F----ked, bet you he will bring out the “Big Guns” to defend him.
ESKOM Fat cats are raking in the bucks, living in the lap of luxury but the business is not operating at the efficient levels that one would expect. The Fuckers want more money, the top 2 men at EK’S,DOM rake in over R4 000 000 per month and yet they want to raise the electricity  price by 16% a year for the next 5 years. WTF, seriously, who can spend R4000 000 per month and it not like there doing a great job, in fact they suck big time, retarded chimps could do a better job.

It’s not like  they should be making a profit, it’s not like they  need to sit round and come up with “out the box ideas or marketing strategies on how to sell electricity”. Eskom has two functions  1) supply the country with electricity and 2) cover their costs. Instead they don’t  and want to make huge profits, they have no shareholders, to impress , the government is the shareholder and the government is supposed to work for us. Ek’s Dom needs to understand that they should be managing the debt, not charging more to build power stations for cash and then making huge profits from it, so they can pay themselves even more. There is a saying if you want to become a millionaire, work for Eskom.

4 000 000 people don’t or can hardly speak English in England, that’s how many foreigners and different nationalities they have living on the island now. Going in June and can’t wait to ride a tube and ask in Afrikaans why everyone looks so glum and see what happens.

While in East London I used a gym near to Carls place was pretty lekker, they have a  Ken and Barbie on “steroids” couple at the gym........not too shabby in the muscle department myself, “ I do have muscles” otherwise i would not be able to walk or pick things up. Anyway the dude was huge, in fact he looked like he had just been to the garage and asked them to pump 3 bar into each arm and 2 in his chest, in fact i was looking for valves. The Obligatory blonde big busted bimbo was also toned way to much for my liking. As a joke i said to Steroid man, do you think i 2 weeks i can look like you, his reply “my girlfriend here can push bigger weights than you” and he had a silly smirk on his face. Not one to stand back when a troglodyte (even when his one arm is bigger than me) talks Kak my reply was did you come out of your mother like that. The guys at the gym told me that he does steroids and pumps oils into his muscles. 
Was the 2nd week of SAMTRAC and have to say what a great group of students one in particular really inspired me, Shayna is about 20 and has taken a loan to do SAMTRAC so she can better herself in the Safety industry. I am really hoping that when i mark on Monday that she passes, she worked hard and studied, so i want that to pay off for her.       

Nigeria won the AFCON cup so JZ got his wish that an African nation would win. And even better the cup is staying in South Africa, it will have a home in Hillbrow. South African will understand that, but non Sefricans wont, so let me explain . . . . ..there are probably more Nigerians in SA than in some parts of Nigeria, in fact if Nigeria had a natural disaster that killed 5 million Nigerians we could probably replace them.   
85 year Pope Benedict the 16th has resigned his position as head of the Catholic church, well he is German and we all know the Germans are good at surrendering. I thought that they had to die on the job so to speak, after all is he not chosen by God and is he not speaking on Behalf of God to the Catholic faithful? I was also under the impression that the black smoke that indicates a new pope has been elected by the other dudes in duck hats (with the help of God of course)was not in fact the ballot papers they were burning to indicate they had elected a new pope but the body of the pope who they were cremating, “Oh come on it could be true”.  He is the 1st pope in 700 years to resign and is citing old age, lack of Justin Bieber tickets and he may want a shag before he dies . Seems that the next Pontiff, will be either from South America or Africa (they had better hide the valuable stuff). Apparently one of the candidates us called Antonio Secola, I think he should be the Pontiff, why u ask ? “Is he better qualified than the other candidates, has he fiddled with more little choir boys”? Nope can u imagine him being introduced to the premier of a country, “Your excellency his eminence  Pope SeCola (get it Pepsi Cola, hahahahaha, shit I am funny). On a more serious note this picture explains why he has really decided to resign.

did something else not done in a long time this week, took a dog for a walk, or perhaps he took me. Tank is a Staffie and belongs to Carl  who owns the guesthouse I stay in when I am in East London. I was going for a walk and Carl asked me to take him along. Apart from him wanting to go to every dog in the suburb we walked in, and there are plenty he behaved OK and had a good time.

After the rape and murder of Anele Booysen another 2 women have been raped and killed in the Western Cape, this has opened the debate on the death penalty once again with many wanting a referendum on the matter, this is the response by Women and Children Minister Lulu Xingwana. She  said government was leading "from the front" when it came to crimes against women and children. Police had a sexual offences unit and units for protecting families and children. A concerted effort was also being made to establish sexual offences courts.
When asked if government would reinstate the death penalty for such crimes, Xingwana said this was against the democratic values of the country."It is against our ethos of human rights." She said the country would not consider castration of rapists as practiced by select countries."We will not do anything that is illegal as government. Well, we believe in human rights of all people and believe the courts are the body that should be given the authority to ensure the law takes its course."
The law taking its Course Lulu, is that the Fuckers will get off due to some Frikken technicality, one of the accused has already been released due to “lack of evidence”  and as far as Scums human rights, get real, once someone abuse a child or murders a person they forfeit their human rights, what about the rights of those affected..................Have a referendum, you say it’s a democratic country and we rule by the will of the people, then lets test that theory. The only reason we don’t is that the majority of people being sentenced to death would be non-white, well guess what the majority of crimes being committed are by non-whites so “if the shoe fits” Lulu.
The minister further  said “the entire nation shared in the grief of Booysen's family and that her death would not be in vain” so tell us Lulu how is that going to happen, how r u and the government going to ensure that is was not in vain, you cannot have a plan without implementing it and ensuring that its checked and acted upon....................do that and her death will not be in vain  
There is a new campaign now called 1 Billion rising and they are teaching people a dance that shows u are against the abuse and rape of women and children and advocating Black Friday were we have to wear Black to show we are against the abuse of women and children.............WTF is a dance and wearing black going to do, we know we have a problem, dancing about it and wearing Black is going to do Fuck all, seriously this issue has to be tackled at home, at school, at church and it’s called discipline and respect, it’s that simple. You can have campaigns like this till the cows come home , until you solve the problem at its roots they are going to be useless.
This is my  personal take on the  issue of rape and abuse of our women and children: We should not just show our disgust at the abuse of our women and children one day a year and after a horrific incident, for us men it should be a lifestyle. REAL MEN DON'T ABUSE WOMEN AND CHILDREN. Lets become a better country by becoming better citizens. Maybe that's a bit naive, but i don’t care to be honest.
Thursday was “Stet of the Nation” address by JZ and while he Blah Blah Blahed about the normal, you know how great he and the ANC was and waxed lyrically about how they were going to stop women and children abuse, corruption, poverty, unemployment, infrastructure building, schooling, teachers etc etc ad nausea . instead of words we need actions and implementation, otherwise he may as well just stand up and say “Sorry, We are Fucked”  ALL talk and NO action is what we do here in SA at the moment.

Lets blame it on Apartheid, Verwoed, Eugene Terreblanche etc etc its the excuse of our esteemed  president  as he again shows in this extract from a local newspaper: Cape Town - Violence in society originates from the apartheid system, President Jacob Zuma said on Friday."I don't think as a nation we just became violent overnight. Violence is a direct consequence of apartheid. Apartheid was a very violent system. So violent that even if you peacefully demonstrated, they would shoot at you and kill you," Zuma told a The New Age breakfast. (So what you are saying is the police and the army and police went round raping and abusing women and children thereby setting the example of future generations who had not even been born yet or were still in nappies??). our Ninja turtle wannabe Prez then also went on to say

“The African National Congress was a non-violent organisation. However, due to persistent violence from the apartheid government, the party had to take up arms”. (you can’t be non violent if you take up arms, just as you can’t be a Vegetarian if you eat meat to show people how bad it is for you). Gandhi was non – violent there is a difference.
"Those who are demonstrating for example, because they are from that kind of situation that if you protest you are going to be shot at, so they are already in a sense full of readiness to do violence," Zuma  also said. "If we have that background it means it is not a matter that we are going to deal with overnight. We are going to take time." However, Zuma condemned violent protests. He urged citizens to respect other people's rights while exercising their right to strike. (don’t condemn, take action as the government you need to take the lead and a) set examples, b) uphold the rule of law. It’s that Fucking simple.
And here is another question Mr. Prezidant . Please do  explain to the honest, hard-working black South Africans why it is that THEY have managed to become decent citizens, when  you yourself believe that they should be living lives of hatred and crime..........................“Asshole”.
Wednesday night in EL was one of if not the worst  night’s sleep I have had , had to move from Tindale to another guest house due to an overbooking the place had no aircon or pool. There was a fan in the room so I basically had a couple of lukewarm showers (water pipes so hot) and then lay on top of the bed and moved fan to cool me, now  know what it looks like to blow dry Chewbacca from Star wars . 
Cape Town - South Africa announced its opposition to a total ban on rhino trophy exports, saying it has beefed up hunt rules amid a poaching crisis that has killed 96 animals this year. The Government backed a recommendation by the UN wildlife trade regulator Cites secretariat that a proposal halting trade in rhino trophies and products be rejected at an upcoming meeting.
We also welcome Cites’ acknowledgement of the recent significant steps taken to improve the management of rhino hunting," said Environment Minister Edna Molewa in a statement. Kenya has proposed that a zero export quota be put in place in Swaziland and South Africa, which has the world's biggest white rhino population and allows legal hunting.
It is one of dozens of proposals on the global wildlife trade that will be voted on at next month's meeting of the 176-member country body in Bangkok. OK so let me get this right, we are having Rhinos shot and poached  at such an alarming speed that in the near future the only examples we may have will be on a R10 note, but we are still saying as a government that we can still shoot them for trophy’s under controlled conditions.  Also the attaching of a  red penis looking thingy to the front of your car, buy bracelets or CD’s, wear black honk your horn at 12pm on a Wednesday afternoon or sign a petition is not working, the only way to stop this is to shoot the F—kers that are killing them, last week they shot 3 so this year its Rhino’s 3 Poachers 93, should be the other way round.
Well that’s it for this week, another week ahead, let’s see what it brings.


Well bowl me over

My mate Carl trying to tickle someones wood 
“If you find the hole, you will be ok”, “If I touch john I may get into trouble”, “Just tickle my wood” ,” I need more grass”, “My wood is in such a bad position”, “The head is short could be a problem”, “I don’t need you to lose your wood”, “ Drive it straight up the middle Tony I am sure it will fit”. Words that you would hear at a lap-dancing establishment ?, a knockshop ?, Stoners convention ? “Nah” while watching my mate from East London (owner of Tindale Lodge) playing Bowls. Last Sunday stupidly agreed to go and watch Carl and his mates play a league match, “average age of competitor – 89” well not quite but almost. Bowls is OK to play with a beer and a piece of Pizza in your hand, but it is not  - “I repeat” NOT a spectator sport add very hot and humid to the mix, with the bar being closed, this makes for a long long long long afternoon. To relieve my boredom I attempted to liven up the proceedings by starting a Mexican wave, but the old dude and his dog as well as some hobo sleeping on a bench were having none of it, thankfully the pub opened up after the game so we could partake of a lemonade or two.

Seems that they found Richard the 3rds bones in a car park in Leicester. Richard III (2 October 1452 – 22 August 1485) was King of England for two years, from 1483 until his death in 1485 in the Battle of Bosworth field. He was the last king of the House of York and the last of the Plantagenet (relating or belonging to the English royal family that ruled between 1154 and 1485) dynasty. His defeat at Bosworth Field, the decisive battle of the Wars of the Roses, is sometimes regarded as the end of the Middle Ages in England. He is the subject of the play Richard 111 by William Shakespeare. The University of Leicester confirmed on 4 February 2013 that a skeleton found in the excavation was, beyond reasonable doubt, that of Richard III, based on a combination of evidence from radiocarbon dating, comparison with contemporary reports of his appearance, and a comparison of his mitochondrial DNA with two matrilineal descendants of Richard III's eldest sister, Anne of York.  

Calamari is very very nice
Had lunch on Saturday at Bridge Street Brewery, Tania and Gabby love the venue and must say so do I , has a nice chilled Vibe. i always busy, so the wait for food can be a little longer than expected but its usually worth it. a couple of ice cold beers and good company usually makes the time pass quicker.

Super 15 pre-season friendlies see Southern kings against Lions which was interesting as the Lions had to make way for the Super Kings (Eastern Cape, PE based franchise). The Lions won 41-31 so not the result that we wanted but they did play well in patches, always a good excuse when your team loses. 

I was sent a  Awesome book  this week by friend and author Jonathan Pittaway, it’s called Selous Scouts -  the men speak, it has to be the best book on the Scouts ever, the time and effort that has been put into this book is beyond belief and will definitely become a collector’s item. The attention to detail the stories, the photos are just incredible, I am actually in awe of Jonathan and the book he has put together.  

In a case similar to the rape case in India a couple of weeks back, a Bredarsdorp (Western Cape) teenager (17) was gang raped, mutilated and left for dead on a building sight, she was found by a security guard and rushed to hospital where she succumbed to her injuries, but not before naming her ex-boyfriend and another man who had taken part, both have been arrested. Anene Booysen was apparently out with friends when she was waylaid and  attacked. My condolences go out to her family and friends as well as her community, this is just unacceptable and we South Africans need to take  our Villages, towns and cities back from Scum like this, there is no place in our society for Animals (my apologies to animals) like this they need to hunted down and either hung or electrocuted. I know if that was my daughter and the men’s names were known to me they would b dead, there  is no way i would be able to live with myself if i let them live. They will be given a lenient sentence after a lengthy and costly trial, string the “f---kers up by their nuts and let the families take revenge. Not Christian you say, well tough shit, you have to fight fire with fire and scum like that do not deserve to live as far as I am concerned.

AFCON cup final today, Nigeria take on Burkina Faso at the Soweto Stadium later today, to be honest lost interest after Bafana were knocked out, but if I was to choose a winner in would go with Burkina Faso as they really played well against Ghana and deserve their place in the final, if they don’t win also does not bother me.  It’s just hit me that the AFCON cup was/is the perfect opportunity for the government  to arrest all the illegal immigrants in the country as every time a game was played you would see scores of “supporters” waving flags etc, wonder how many were here legally.  
Francois Botha “The white Buffalo” took on Sonny Bill Williams on Friday in what was supposed to be a 12 round title fight, however the fight was not over 12 but 10 rounds, SBW’s camp say that this had been arranged with Botha’s camp, which they have denied, the ringside judges did not know, neither did the paying public or the bookies. Sonny Bill won on points but was looking like he could get knocked out as Botha was within seconds of doing so in the 10th round.....................mmmmmm sounds like match fixing to me.  Williams, set to re-start his rugby league career in Australia after several years of playing rugby union, including a World Cup win with the All Blacks in 2011, had a clause in his New Zealand Rugby Union contract allowing him a set number of fights to pursue his boxing career. But his six professional victories, coming against a string of ageing or unfit journeymen, have been slammed by established fighters and pundits as commercial ventures lacking credibility.

Back in EL today for another week, it was hot and Muggy Hot in EL last week with most nights being very hot. I went to gym twice at 5am (woke up at 4.30am) yeah i know I was surprised as well. Had a couple of nice walks, the one aft/eve about 8kms. Got 10 SAMTRAC students on the course, a nice group of people as well. It s very intense course with lots of group and individual work and some of the students are resorting to taking these to get through it.

During the walk on Thursday  saw this sign outside a pub, if it had of said Millers I may just have stopped and popped in for a “soup of the day”

On Saturday while  was putting R20 petrol (now R11.92 per litre) into my scooter this Orange Porsche GT3 RS pulls in. Not a big car fan, but this is awesome, does 350kms per hour and has roll bars, not back seats.

Ok, well that’s about it for this week



Didn’t see that Karma coming

So the great news that we South Africans received this week  is that next Wednesday the price of petrol is going up 41 c a litre..................SHIT it comes down by 9 c and 12 cents over a 2 month period and the BAM not even a dinner and were getting screwed. Means petrol at the coast will be nearly R12 a Frikken litre, sucks big time.

Tania bought our tickets for the UK, yeah going to pay the island a visit (it needs some class for a while) as some of you may know the UK or the  “island” as i like to call it ain’t my favourite place in the world and spose I am going to have to eat humble  pie for a while. Why am i going ? well the missus wants to c her sister who moved there 5 years ago for a “year or two” and ain’t coming back, so we are paying them a visit. We were going to ravel on Pommie passports, but thankfully they were so full of shit we are travelling on South African passports. I place i really wanted to visit if the Imperial war museum, and I went onto their website to check opening times ate etc and its closed for renovations till July 13, (we fly back home on the 5th). Oh well Ace cafe and a couple of Harley shops are on the list. Thankfully we are not going in winter, I will know because in summer they don’t get snow apparently. Thank goodness for that because as this headline shows the island now has sex perverts who molest snowmen...................... 

Did something on Wednesday that have not done in such a long time, in fact i can’t even remember when I performed this act....................When was the last time you placed papers inside and envelope and placked a stamp on it ?. It was like “I have done this before, but just can’t remember when”. A piece of advice if you’re going to rush out and buy envelopes and stamps just to see what it feels like, don’t lick the stamp or the back of the envelope, they are self adhesive. Took me about 2 hours to get the taste out of my mouth.  

A headline in a local paper caught my eye this week , 123 kids in 1 class, yeah you read correctly 123 kids. We have 90 000 000 to give war torn Mali but we don’t have the funds........ “wait maybe we do” we just don’t have the right people to ensure that its spent properly and not stolen or wasted.

About a week ago on Algoa radio face book page they asked if anyone was interested in doing a morning  as a  Guest presenter, well i obviously said “hell Yeah” , after all I do have the face for radio. So on Friday i got a call from them asking me if i was still interested, of course I said yes, but “damn” the day they need me 13/2/2013 i am in East London on the 2nd week of SAMTRAC. I have been on radio before, being interviewed so it would have been cool to be a presenter. “Oh well maybe next time”

The house behind NOSA has a tennis court and a pool, its hired out so as you can imagine the tenants don’t look after the property as if it was their own. So the pool looks like  where Shrek could live and it looks as if they are trying to turn the clay court into a grass court.
Gabby friend Allen had a bike accident on Wednesday he was hit by a car that was looking it jump into the gap in the morning traffic. The driver of the car told the police that he had only ‘bumped” the scooter......................”See photo and decide for yourself”. Allen is very bruised and sore, but will live to ride another day. While not lekker for him , it was a wake-up call for gabby and her other mates who ride to school and back in heavy traffic. 

Allen was lucky to get out of this one with only heavy bruising
If you ever drive past a block of flats and see a car/bakkie hooked up to a trailer and its packed with furniture and household goods, spare a thought for the poor sods that are either moving in or out, especially if they are way up on one of the top floors. My mate Rob called to see if i could help him move from his flat, of course i said yes, but could only do it after work on Thursday. I had assumed that Rob was going to be moving from one flat to another in the same block.  Assume (can make an ASS out of U and ME. Thankfully Gabby and Tania had offered their assistance with Gabby going to help about an hour earlier than Tania and I got there. Rob then tells me that he is moving to a cottage in Sardinia Bay about 16kms from where he has his flat on the beachfront. Oh let me mention now that Rob resides (did reside) on the 17th floor of ‘Beaches” flats.....................flat 1707 to be exact. Well to cut a LONG story short while Tania and Gabby packed Rob, I and his neighbour (thank god he helped) moved the furniture etc to the Goods lift, then I would pack the lift and travel the 17 stories (very very slowly i may add, hell  they opened a coffee bar on that lift they would have made money) and then unpack it at the bottom. Originally Rob had the car and trailer parked 500ms away and I said boet you need to move the trailer etc to the car park area. Oh did i mention that it was Frikken hot and about 99.9 % humidity. By 9.30pm we had him all packed and then drove with him to new cottage.................Moving out of flats is not easy believe me, I slept like a log on Thursday night.

Bafana Bafana played Mali in the Q finals in Durban yesterday at 8pm and lost 3/1 in the penalty shootout after extra time when both teams had a goal apiece, we where shocking at the shootout, absolutely pathetic, earlier in the day Ghana had beaten a hard working Cape Verde Islands 2/0 at the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium, here in PE. I have not had the chance to get to a game and being in EL it looks like I won’t either.  
The Protea’s are playing Pakistan at the Wanderers in a 5 day test, they started the game on Friday, The Protea’s won the toss and decided to bat, they were bowled out for a below par 253. Headline were not complimentary to the team this morning (Saturday 2/2/2013) Pakistan started the day on 6/0 and were bowled out for 49 runs, ‘yes 49 runs” Dale Steyn getting  6 wickets for 8 runs). Proteas are piling on the runs with AMLA and du Plessis doing some damage .

A while back  a radio station asked for comments regards cyclists, I did not send in any info but i would like to add my 5 cents worth to the debate about these guys on the road.. I find it amazing that the majority of cyclists expect other road users to take them into consideration and obey the rules of the road, when they themselves do not take road users into account and regularly  flout the rules of the road. A prime example of this is when you get to a traffic light that is green for you but a cyclist rides through the red on his/her side and stop streets merely mean a quick glance to see if i can put on a burst of speed and make it across the road without actually having to stop. Should a cyclist however be hit while breaking these rules, it will of course be the other persons fault.

Started a new Blog this week as well, it’s called “Born warriors”  www.theywerebornwarriors.blogspot.com. Its a Blog that hopefully will have not only myself contributing but others as well. As the title suggests it’s a military  Blog and i want to tell the stories of forgotten hero’s of especially the African wars that have plagued this continent way back, but concentrating mainly between the years 1950 – present day.....................take a look.
Well on way to East London for the week

Have a great one
