More "not made up" tales from Floyd...

Reactions: 
“What is this?” asked Shivambu when told by News24 about the Dusi.
When told that the event involves a race down the river in a canoe, Shivambu asked what a canoe was.
I mean???

“The Dusi Marathon is a well-known story of transformation (and) would be a great opportunity for the ANCYL and Julius Malema,” said Ray de Vries, chairperson of the Natal Canoe Club, which organises the race.
Do we still want this caliber of "leader" in South African politics?
Unfortunately with the present trend in our education system there is no light or sign of intelligence forthcoming, the masses will stay uneducated and illiterate and still believe the tripe these politicians constantly dish up.
Fortunately I have seen some that have seen through the smoke and mirrors of the ANC and it's cohorts... I just do not know if there are enough bright young people out there that can see the wood for the trees and have more than a F in carpentry.

99 Biker Friends

Reactions: 
I always smile when I hear about bikers supporting the underdog...

Great to see then supporting a kid's right to fly his country's flag...
Reminds me of the Bowling for Soup song, 99 Biker Friends


99 Biker Friends by Bowling For Soup
Such a big man, such a little chick.
I think it all goes back to your tiny
Pick-up truck in the driveway,
With a sticker on the window
"Rest in Peace Number 3".
Tell all your friends
How you put her in her place.
7 pounds of makeup
Just to hide her beat up face.
Such a pretty face.

[Chorus:]
It takes a tough man to slap her around.
Such a bad guy to keep such a good girl down.
She's wearing shades
Behind the tinted glass.
And I've got 99 biker friends
That wanna kick your ass.

Tell her that you're sorry.
Blame it on the beer.
Your dad was mean to you.
Your friends think you're an asshole
And I do too.
Over compensating for your small shoes.
Taking her away, but you won't say when.
Hold her in your arms,
Tell her this won't happen again.
When will this end? Well

[Chorus]

I wish Bruce Lee was here right now
With his trusty nun-chucks
Chuck Norris is still alive,
So let's call up Walker, Texas Ranger,
All the dudes from "Danger, Danger".
Let's get the A-Team,
50 Cent with his bling-bling,
And a couple of prison guards.

[Chorus]

Start running now.
We're gonna kick your ass!

Yeah... I have 99 Biker Friends too! With me it makes 100! Give us a call any day...

For the Fallen

Reactions: 


For The Fallen Laurence Binyon
With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
England mourns for her dead across the sea.
Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,
Fallen in the cause of the free.

Solemn the drums thrill; Death august and royal
Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres,
There is music in the midst of desolation
And a glory that shines upon our tears.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
They sleep beyond England's foam.

But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
As the stars are known to the Night;

As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain;
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
To the end, to the end, they remain.

Today we remember that freedom came by the sacrifice of those that fought for it. Never forget that!

"But if dying's asked of me,
I'll bear that cross with an honor,
'Cause freedom don't come free."
Toby Keith - American Soldier lyrics

This is not made up...

Reactions: 
Shivhambu is my candidate for Dumbass of the Year if you ask me... You just cannot make up stuff as funny as this report!

ANCYL wants to close Twitter:

Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League would call for the closure of Twitter if the social network administrators did nothing to stop its president Julius Malema's impersonators, a spokesperson said on Wednesday.

"We will look at ways of stopping this... Even if it means going to the police," Floyd Shivhambu said.
Floyd... Floyd... my dear fellow... how on earth can the SAPD do this when they still have not come to take the fingerprints off the crime scene of the break in at the house that I sold three years ago already!

A search of Malema on twitter reveals 12 users including Julius_Malema, JMalema, Julius_S_Malema and jujumalema.

Of the 12 users, six bear the picture of the firebrand youth leader.

"@jacobzuma welcome home comrade! Thanks for letting me run the country without you for a few weeks. It was sharp, sharp!," read a status update written by Julius_Malema on August 30.

Another status update by JMalema read: "hola comrades! I am make some few speeks in SA! Viva ANC! PS. who is Barack Obama!?"
Man that made me laugh a lot...

Shivhambu said that the league had attempted several times to block the "fake Twitter" accounts, but no action was taken by network administrators.
No? Well then Floyd you clearly have no idea how Social Networks work do you?

"Those who are hacking systems and impersonating the ANC YL leadership should immediately stop doing so because the laws of this country will come (down) very hard on them," said Shivhambu.
What laws in particular... these political nincompoops are wont to claim protection from non existent legislation... but when they do transgress real laws they claim the laws do not apply to them as "disadvantaged youth"... and opening a twitter account is NOT HACKING you twit!

He said that Malema did not own a Twitter account.
Maybe if these Twits had Twitter accounts there would be less Twitterring about this nest of Clones... or is that Clowns?
Oh... and Floyd... no one owns a Twitter account... It's free..

Dont let it fade

Reactions: 
A song to make you think. Andy Hunter is a Christian DJ and Cathy Burton sings a lot of other Christian songs... You will find them both on YouTube, well worth the time to find and listen to. Also great to see musicians that have the love of God in their hearts and spread the Word in their unique way.

Andy Hunter ft Cathy Burton - Fade

When you walk out of my light, the colour fades, the colour fades.
When you lose your way and walk alone, the colour fades and runs
Like tears down my face.

I can give you life. I can give you hope. I can give your heart the love it's looking for.
Give you feeling, I can bring you joy. I can make you who you are. Who you are.

When you walk a rugged road, your heart is heavy. Darker than the evening sky.
When the path is sinking sand, I am reaching out to pull you through to higher land.

The colour fades when you walk out of my light.
The colour fades when you choose to walk alone.
The colour fades when your path is sinking sand.

The love of God is spoken in these words as well as his sadness when we chose to turn our back on him, may we chose every day to walk in the Light, no longer alone, no longer sinking.
I often wondered if God really loved me... until a day in 2007... standing on a mountain top he spoke to me in a thought. "You are so special to me that I created all you see... both on Earth and the Heavens above so that I can reveal my Love and plan for you. For each person that is born I do this..." That was the turning point for me and I wept when I realized that this meant that Jesus had truly given all for me... because he loves me... forever!

Remember this. "When people choose to withdraw far from a fire, the fire continues to give warmth, but they grow cold. When people choose to withdraw far from light, the light continues to be bright in itself but they are in darkness. This is also the case when people withdraw from God." ~Augustine.

Hazed Horizons

Reactions: 
Driving home my eye caught the huge smoke haze and I took some Cell pics... found out later it was a huge veld fire at Barkley West near Kimberley!

Will add more when I find out more about the blaze.

at the N1 robot
Then I found a safe spot to take these 3 before the sun set.



Must have been one heck of a fire to produce such a smoke cloud...
Quite impressed with this Nokia too... nifty camera!
