Eish! Es truuu ek se...

Reactions: 
Men always HIV-negative, sadly this is a very relevant article, I blame it on the Rappper mentality that seems to be sweeping through the male population of our sunny land. Disrespect towards women is commonplace amongst certain parts of our male population and it is not something that can be blamed on the past either...

I have seen the rain...

Reactions: 
Wow... This is amazing... Just been listening to Pink and her dad singing "I have seen the rain"...
To all the Vetrans, both here in South Africa and those that fought for True Freedom I wish you all well and to those presently in harms way... for you I pray that you all get home. Your sacrifice may not be recognised in the media but those that have seen the rain know and are behind you.

I have seen the rain - James T. Moore (Pink's Dad)

I have seen the rain
I have felt the pain
I don't know where I'll be tomorrow
I don't know where I'm going
I don't even know where I've been
But i know I'd like to see them again.

Spend my days just searching
Spend my nights in dreams
Stop looking over my shoulder baby
I've stopped wonderin' what it means
Drop out, burn out, solidier ho-oh they've said I should've been more
Probably so if i hadn't of been in that crazy damn Vietnam war.

I have seen the rain
I've survived the pain
Oh I've been home 30 years or so
And I'm just stepping up for the blame

Spend my days just searching
Spend my nights in dreams
Stop looking over my shoulder baby
I've stopped wonderin' what it means
Drop out, burn out, solidier ho-oh they've said I should've been more
Probably so if i hadn't of been in that crazy damn Vietnam war.

We have seen the rain, together
We have survived the pain, forever
Oh it's good to home again
Its good to be with my friends
Oh it's good to be home again
It's good to feel that rain

What impresses me about Pink is the power of her lyrics, this is no bubblehead conglomeration of words like a lot of today's music... this is music and words from a soul laid bare, wise beyond her years. I really look foreward to more from her in future... it can only get better!

Check the score! and check the bikes...

Reactions: 
This is one of the reasons I love going to watch Rugby with my son M... We are hoarse from cheering our favourite team the Vodacom Free State Cheetahs... shame poor Falcons... must say those wings and drumsticks went down well... The scoreboard says it all!
And of course another reason... the Hogs and Chicks! The sound these bikes make when the team runs onto the field is awesome! Makes me want to buy a Harly... well just maybe...
We were however dissapointed at the turnout... I suppose the time of the game as well as the Springbok game starting on TV was a damper... I always find it strange that the stadium is full when the Blue Bull's visit but not when we play lesser teams... shame on you Bloemies Rugby Fans!
In any case... we had a great day at the Cheetah's game... the Springboks is another story...

Birdflu bullshit...

Reactions: 
I am getting more and more apprehensive about Birdflu... Not that I will contract the disease but that so many birds are dying in the process... not from the virus but us humans freaking out!
If only we would apply this same rule to humans that are infected with other deadly virii...
It makes no sense because the statistics just do not balance out... the total human toll from Birdflu is a paltry 130 and that out of a total 228 infections, 800 people die each day in South Africa from AIDS! But this makes us kill millions of birds! Frikken Rediculous!
How did we as humans survive previous outbreaks of contagous diseases? The strongest survived... our bodies developed antibodies!
I personally believe we need to be exposed to eventually survive as a species, if we keep on protecting ourselves from every possible pathogen we will be wiped out by a sneak attack...
Now I see on SABC TV that they want to cull a bird farm's total stock... "Just in case"... Bullshit I say!

Gotta be blind...

Reactions: 
when you listen to Stars are Blind by Paris Hilton (wonder if this will get my blog blocked?) here is the Wiki write up.
Forget about her antics and her looks... the girl actually comes over very smoothly in this song. Not Superstar class but quite pleasant on the ear and not a bad reggae beat either... no wonder it is still selling so well.
Just goes to show, never judge a voice on the face... The song is still high on many charts.
However I still agree with Pink as I mentioned in this post, Paris is still a Stupid Girl... maybe she will grow up sometime... here are the lyrics to;
Stars are Blind
Just hanging here with you
Cuz I don't find too many guys
That treat me like you do
Those other guys all wanna take me for a ride
But when I walk their talk is suicide
Some people never get beyond their stupid pride
But you can see the real me inside
And I'm satisfied, oh no, ohh

Even though the gods are crazy
Even though the stars are blind
If you show me real love baby
I'll show you mine

I can make you nice and naughty
Be the devil and angel too
Got a heart and soul and body
Let's see what this love can do
Baby i'm perfect for you

My love, ohh oh

I could be your confidante
Just one of your girlfriends
But I know that love's what you want
If tomorrow the world ends
Why shouldn't we be with the one we really love?
Now tell me who have you been dreaming of
At night at home? oh no, ohh

Even though the gods are crazy
Even though the stars are blind
If you show me real love baby
I'll show you mine

I can make you nice and naughty
Be the devil and angel too
Got a heart and soul and body
Let's see what this love can do
Baby i'm perfect for you

Excuse me for feeling
This moment is critical
Might be me feeling
It could get physical, oh no, no no

Even though the gods are crazy
Even though the stars are blind
If you show me real love baby
I'll show you mine

I can make you nice and naughty
Be the devil and angel too
Got a heart and soul and body
Let's see what this love can do
Let's see what this love can do
Baby I'm perfect for you

Baby I'm perfect for you

Even though the gods are crazy

Even though the stars are blind

Even though the gods are crazy

Strange how sometimes the right quote bounces out after I write a posting... this is what I found searching for "blind"... and that is what my view is as well... Miss Hilton may have her faults but she has a cool song!

Slimey... ewwwwwww

Reactions: 
I am now a Slimy Mollusc over at TTLB... I hope this is shortlived!
Actually they are quite an interesting group of animals... The picture is from aNNa Munandar's collection of photos, the reflection is amazing, the pic on FLICKr is even better.
More Snails!
As to the use of these poor critters in the persuit of gastranomic delight... I have eaten garlic snails but to be quite honest... I now rather spend my money on other forms of meat unless someone else is paying for em...
Songs with "Snail" in the title are pretty rare however the one I was thinking of when the whole snail idea slithered out of my mind was the beautifull Simon and Garfunkle song, El Condor Pasa;
I'd rather be a sparrow than a snail.
Yes I would.
If I could,
I surely would.
I'd rather be a hammer than a nail.
Yes I would.
If I only could,
I surely would.

CHORUS
Away, I'd rather sail away
Like a swan that's here and gone
A man gets tied up to the ground
He gives the world
Its saddest sound,
Its saddest sound.

I'd rather be a forest than a street.
Yes I would.
If I could,
I surely would.

I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet,
Yes I would.
If I only could,
I surely would.

Did some delving in my collection and viola! the Smashing Pumpkins did a song called Snail! Track 7 on Gish, 1991. Never really paid much attention to the song until today, my pumpkin CD's are gathering dust... They are currently busy with a new album... last one was released in 1999!.

Beware the cows from Cowes...

Reactions: 
50FT COW SLIP PERIL
This is so funny it writes itself... "I turned round and this cow was hurtling down the cliff. It landed where my board had been and if it had hit me it would have been the end of me too."

At least it was not this Cow from Cowes... borrowed from breakingwaves' photos! The cow in question was actually a bull calf or steaks in making... now it is just plain mincemeat. So... next time you are on a beach beneath a cliff... have your hard hat on as well!
The only song I can think of that goes with this posting is from the Foo Fighters! Called appropriatly...
For All The Cows: Album; Foo Fighters - Nov 21, 1995

Im called a cow
Im not about
To blow it now
For all the cows

Its funny how money allows all to browse
And be endowed
This wish is true it falls into peaces new
The cow is you

My kind has all run out, as if kinds could blend
Some time if time allows, everthing worn in
Like its a friend

I said youre all a painted doll and it caused
The walls to fall
How far is he? impatiently
Thats as far as far can be
Cowabunga! Here's to bungee jumping cattle!

I abhorr the Nannyfication of Western society, we are no longer allowed to think or act for ourselves... if this is what Freedom is going to be like in the future give me La Revolucion any day... who wants to live in such a boring existince? This is in effect a form of subjugation, insidious and permeating the whole fabric of Europe at the moment. What seems to be the effect is totally opposite from what the Politicians aim for... the lawless use these laws and restrictions to carry on business as usual.

Reactions: 
Words uttered by a president that would not surrender, before hearing the plans for the Doolittle Raid. (Pearl Harbour was on the telly today...)
What we need today is a Doolittle raid of some kind to cut the hordes at the gates down to size... To me it seems too many want to placate the enemy and rather be so called Politically Correct in the hopes that they will not target their patch of this planet... The Israelis tried but failed due to lack of a certain brand of fortitude on the part of many of their political and some military leaders... the grunts on the ground however wanted to do the job! Salute to them!
Sorry to bust your PC bubble folks but these people want Total Global Domination by hook or by crook... and they will use our laws against us... they will use our freedoms to murder us... until there is no law or freedom anymore!

The Power of Pink... or who knew?

Reactions: 
Yep... Spring is trying it's best to arrive and the Prunus outside the flat is a blaze of pink... Or as it is known; Prunus cerasifera Nigra - Purple Leaf Flowering Plum Tree.


We have not really had the traditional August winds and dust yet... maybe they will stay away this year?

Pink is a colour I always associate with spring and two singers...
Pink (aka Alecia Moore) and South African singer Marloe Scott-Wilson or Mandi Heyns in real life... I bet not many knew that! Other SA music trivia is that Jennifer Jones is her daughter... We keep it in the family here in South Africa! For some shocking (pink) name facts of SA singers check out Real Names R Us. One not on the list is Gene Rockwell (Gert Smit)... Nou ja nou weet julle!
So without further ado I will exit with the lyrics from Pink and her latest hit... Who Knew! a Fitting song title to this theme no?

You took my hand
You showed me how
You promised me you'd be around
Uh huh
That's right
I took your words
And I believed
In everything
You said to me
Yeah huh
That's right

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them up
Cause they're all wrong
I know better
Cause you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Remember when we were such fools
And so convinced and just too cool
Oh no
No no
I wish I could touch you again
I wish I could still call you friend
I'd give anything

When someone said count your blessings now
For they're long gone
I guess I just didn't know how
I was all wrong
They knew better
Still you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Yeah yeah
I'll keep you locked in my head
Until we meet again
Until we
Until we meet again
And I won't forget you my friend
What happened

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong and
That last kiss
I'll cherish
Until we meet again
And time makes
It harder
I wish I could remember
But I keep
Your memory
You visit me in my sleep
My darling
Who knew
My darling
My darling
Who knew
My darling
I miss you
My darling
Who knew
Who knew


This is a great song and I love the lyrics... seeng we are talking aboutt knowing and trees amongst other things ponder this:
"Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence."

An Uri can jump...

Reactions: 
Conceived in the desert of Namibia and built to be as rugged as the country that birthed it, is the Uri utility vehicle, great for any off road mission you plan.

The whole underside and body is sprayed with polyurethane to make it both rustproof and water proof.

Something that is needed when you use it for fishing trips along the Namib with it's salty air.
These great bakkies are now also being built in Pretoria.
The basic versions used to be only 2x4... and can usually go anywhere a 4x4 goes! It is all in the ultralight design and suspension set up. The newer 4x4 versions go where Unimogs fear to tread!

Weep for the children of Israel!

Reactions: 
Hezbolla is already celebrating a victory while Israeli troops gain more ground before the ceacefire today...

I for one was certain the IDF was up to the job, however the political leaders were not.
The UN resolution 1701 will not bring peace as hoped nor bring back the kidnapped troops.
This war will be replayed shortly with even more casualties due to Western and Israeli politicians not being up to the job to fight the war against islamic terror...
Churchill summed it up thus;

"How the English-speaking peoples,through their unwisdom, carelessness and good nature allowed the wicked to rearm."
It is strange that it is mainly the English speaking peoples that are leading the WOT, albeit not with the vigour it needs... yes we are allowing a wicked part of the Hydra to rearm and recuperate... and the whole world will pay for this error. I also think that the replay/repayment will be not in months or years but weeks, just this gut feelling I have, I seriously hope I am wrong.
This quote from the Bulldog sums up my feelings on the matter and this is what I thought was the idea behind the Israeli push into Lebanon a month ago but alas I have been proven incorrect;
"One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half."

Update: 15:31
Oh, by the way... this is MY blog... so go flog yourself Ahmedinajad, you islamic scum... get your own blog to publish links to islamic crap sites! For your information I have and still do study your so called prophet of doom's writings and the more I read the more I realise he was a peadophilic peice of shit!

Bashed chicken leftovers

Reactions: 
Some days I am in a flat spin and when I collect the milk and bread at my local P&P I grab a roasted chicken, for the price of R24 odd you get a chicken of reasonable size all cooked and quite tasty. I can't cook one for that price quite frankly!
Now after one or two of these days one collects a few odd chicken leftovers... what to do? what to do?
I came up with this bashed together recipe...

Bashed Chicken Leftovers.
Pre heat oven to 250/300 C

Ingredients:
Chicken leftovers or one whole chicken pre cooked/roasted.
Packet of bacon
3 med. potatoes
4/5 tomatoes or a can of tomatoes
Packet veggie soup.
Veggie seasoning/sprinkle.

Method:
Slice and dice the bacon and chicken, place in seperate bowls.
Peel and slice potatoes into rounds about 6mm thick.
Peel tomatoes with boiling water and dice.

Place a layer of potatoes on the bottom of a casserole, followed by chicken then bacon then tomato and do it again, sprinkling veggie sasoning over the potato and tomato layers.

Mix the veggie soup with 250 ml water and pour over the top and stick the covered casserole in the oven... as soon as you get the smell of the bacon reduce heat to 200C for another 30 min. by then it should be done with the potatoes firm but soft.

Serve with a tossed salad.

The Subaru of Salie du Toit and Gert Janse van Rensburg, Number 68 was left in the veld as a burnt out hulk after pulling off with a flat... ingnoring rule 2 of rallying (Never pull off in long grass.) can be terminal! Fortunately the occupants were able to tell the tale of woe afterwards.
Dave Ledbitter one of the photgraphers from Motorpics had two narrow shaves as well, first narrowly missing the signboards at a T junction and then getting tattered and torn when he and a barbed wire fence were taken out by one of the competitors who had a brake pedal failure! His clothes looked like a tramp's after this... Here is Klaas Geswindt dashing off to find the next spot for photos... More on the fence episode and the rally at Rally Star. Picture from Motorpics site.
This is the winning Polo of Jan Habig and Douglas Judd. Scarcly dirty... I suppose being lead car has it's advantages!
I had the honour of being asked to assist on the Scrutineering team.
To Fred Vroomen and the other organisers I want to say job well done! It was great fun and I will be there to assist again next year! Hopefully I will be able to go out on the route as well as an observer.
I missed the Bloemfontein Air Show at Tempe Airfield though... but the Sasol Tigers made a pass at the final controll... although I did not get such a good picture... check the two L29's in close formation at the top of the picture.

The opponent Ishmael

Reactions: 
I think this needs to be said in toto, I hope Avi Schneider and YNet do not mind me putting this excellent peice up here as well...
"The difficulty in confronting Ishmael lies first in the tendency to underestimate him. A unique look at the Torah’s blueprint for fighting Hizbullah and Hamas" Avi Schneider

"From the dawn of Jewish history, the Bible understood what it was that would make Ishmael the most persistent and dangerous rival for the Land of Israel the Jews would ever have. It was not Ishmael’s willingness to wage all-out war. It was his refusal to do so.
The opponent Ishmael is not what you would normally call “passive” in the traditional sense of the word. In the Bible he is even described as “wild”. Yet wild as he may have been, it doesn’t change his “passivity” as far as combat is concerned. He is passive in that his attacks, taken individually, are fleeting, without great substance.
In the Bible, Ishmael never commits himself to take a solid stance against his more committed brother, Isaac, the future Jewish Patriarch. So his attacks lack the gravity of an existential threat. However, they prove to be bothersome enough to infringe upon Isaac’s development.
Such an opponent is dangerous because if he is not dealt with early you will see an accumulation of damage over time. After a long period of allowing Ishmael to play his game you will look back and find that he has impeded your progress to a surprising degree and that you are far behind where you thought you’d be.
The tendency to underestimate the enemy
The difficulty in confronting Ishmael lies first in the tendency to underestimate him. Given that his attacks lack real substance, you may not feel it’s not worth spending the time and energy to stop them. Even if you do decide to take action it cannot be a long drawn out donnybrook for which many people feel obliged to prepare at length whenever they anticipate conflict.
The very character trait which prevents Ishmael’s attacks from being lethal also prevents an elaborate, powerful counterattack from being leveled at him; by the time you establish a strong basis for launching an attack, Ishmael has already uprooted himself and moved to another area from which to renew his harassment.
Ishmael’s strategy, in other words, is that of guerrilla warfare. Generally a guerrilla war is conducted by a small, ill-equipped force against a far larger and more powerful one. The guerrilla understands or rather believes he would be no match for such an opponent in a face-to-face battle so he aims to harass him instead. But this approach has serious deficiencies which we will soon delineate.
The guerrilla strategy is predicated on the calculation that the larger opponent will never decide that it is worth committing the necessary energy to seek and destroy the guerrilla for good. This apathy will allow the guerrilla to slowly wear his larger opponent down over time to the point where the larger opponent will come to believe he lacks the ability to stop the harassment and he will, sooner or later, give up. This guerrilla strategy requires a buffer between the guerilla and the opponent. Face to face, the guerrilla applying his strategy will surely lose. He needs space to maneuver from target to target.
The passive fighter
In martial arts, for the “passive” fighter, this lack of commitment translates as distance. It means the passive fighter, at any given time, has multiple options for an attack and if one avenue seems too well defended he can immediately shift to another. Keeping distance and not taking the time to gather significant energy/substance for each blow affords him greater speed for shifting his orientation.
This form of attack, this guerrilla threat, is one of restraining. And that is the Opponent Ishmael’s ultimate goal. Ishmael doesn’t need to defeat you with a knockout blow. Instead he needs only to harass you and thereby keep you at bay long enough for you to see your goals pass you by. This is the major mistake people make when fighting an Ishmael-like opponent.
You might feel it is not worth the effort. You might feel that fighting him is even questionable from a moral standpoint; after all, he is weaker and his attacks - you’ve convinced yourself - are not existentially threatening. Ishmael, on the other hand, is relying on the slow deterioration of your deterrent capacity (and in particular your will to deter him) leading to your total defeat.
Therefore even one goal lost to this type of opponent, one harassment that goes unanswered, should be considered unacceptable.
The solution
There's a need to attack this opponent spontaneously, ferociously and continuously with a mind toward random attacks aimed at multiple targets. Here it is quantity that is key with the aim of overwhelming your opponent, as apposed to more focused, surgical attacks on designated weak points.
The reason being: Ishmael’s lack of commitment. This is his true weak point. His refusal and/or inability to commit, to take a stand, his lack of discipline, in other words his lack of precisely those characteristics required repelling a continuing and random barrage, is what will leave him helpless before it.
Ishmael’s most prized asset – elusiveness - becomes ineffectual when he is no longer at leisure to choose the timing and ever-shifting targets of his harassing attacks so as to inflict just enough damage to avoid a severe response and to be able to retreat in time to avoid whatever response might be forthcoming.
Keeping his distance allowed Ishmael to see the big picture and know when his target was too busy to respond to minor attacks or too far off in a different direction to respond in time. A nonspecific barrage of threats to multiple targets on Ishmael thereby negates his ability to calculate.
If executed with the proper amount of ferocity and consistently leveled against Ishmael with no respite, such attacks will eventually force him to scrutinize his convictions and decide whether he truly is willing to sacrifice for them. In other words you force him to either take a stand or yield.
At this point, for Ishmael to defend himself, he will have to both find the confidence to stand against you and invest what it takes to oppose you, two things he is unlikely to find and do.
Adapt relevant strategy
So, if he does yield, you win. If, on the other hand he takes a stand, if he somehow finds the confidence and commits the energy needed to try to oppose you, than you have destroyed the characteristics that make Ishmael who he is along with his repetitive small scale attacks and everything else that accompanies an Ishmael opponent. You now face a different personality on the passive aggressive scale and your strategy must adapt accordingly.
Either way the Opponent Ishmael is destroyed.

Historically, both terrorists and genuine guerillas have employed Ishmael-like tactics. But there is a difference between the two. Terrorists specifically target noncombatants. Guerrillas do not. This is a night and day difference and should be clear to any civilized and mentally fit human being.
Unfortunately, today too many people get caught in the trap of feeling it is morally incorrect to apply the proper vigor to defeat terrorist opponents and instead invest their energy in cataloguing grievances and dissatisfactions that might justify the terrorists’ behavior. In our view this approach is both dangerously negligent and morally devoid of all merit."

This sums up what I recently posted on the e-mail group I belong to, got shot down by some but maybe they will start thinking... here is my view;
"Coming back to extremism...
Yes I am an extremist when it comes to war... war is not engaged lightly and as such should not be fought lightly as we in the west have tended to do since WW2, it is always "what will the press say" or "what will the UN" say... war is a fight to the death as far as I am concerned and we in the "west" have become scared to wage war. Negotiation and diplomacy is the way to go about it, untill you see it is too late.
This could become our undoing I fear for the enemy we face at present does not fear death or war or anything else because his "religion" enthrones violence, terror, deciet and mayhem as a means to kill and enslave those that do not wish bow to their way of thinking. The only way to fight this is to eradicate it roots and all...
If anyone does not see this then I wash my hands as I have no other way of opening your eyes to the truth that is happening in all countries of the world."

Reactions: 
The article is amazing;
"Today, I am convinced that Israel is fighting a justified war. Far from being an "optional war," this conflict was forced upon us. There is a feeling that every positive step taken in recent years has been answered by punishment. Now we are prepared to do whatever it takes to turn Israel into a safe place, even if this means invading Lebanon once again. We also want to sip coffee and play backgammon. We've had enough of rockets from the north and south and suicide bombers from everywhere. We also want to lead a normal life, just like the people in New York, Berlin or Rome who don't have to look up every time a stranger enters their favorite cafe."
I quess that sums the present conflict up and all I can add is Go Israel!
