How to shower with little water.




Cape Town is very low on water and water restrictions are severe. So if you live there or visit this is how you shower. You don’t have to be part of the problem you know.


Daddy LongLegs – did you know?



Ark will love this I am sure!

They’re not spiders

They’re not venomous

They are at least 4 hundred million years old so have respect

They also have other names

you find them all over the world

In many different varieties

Sometimes they hang out in big clumps

They live for a long time

and their legs do not grow back!

The rest about them you can read right here –





Three Cheers for the University of Google


Now any wannabe psychologist can do a profile on somebody they hate.

And grateful thanks to the internet so we can all join in to cyber bullying.After all our information comes from the media does it not? And you can always trust the media, can’t you? (so btw here is a nice example of how bullying works – https://www.ted.com/talks/monica_lewinsky_the_price_of_shame)  Do watch it!

Journalists may be eloquent as far as use of language is concerned but they are often weak on facts. FACTS COUNT OPINIONS DON’T!



Remember Meryl What comes round….


Meryl Streep’s attack on Donald Trump at the Golden Globes for appearing to imitate a disabled reporter has been dismissed as hypocrisy by Margaret Thatcher’s official biographer.

British journalist Charles Moore, who has so far published two volumes of Thatcher’s biography, pointed out that the Democrat-supporting Streep “did very well out of imitating a vulnerable person in public” when she won an Oscar for playing Thatcher as a dementia sufferer in The Iron Lady, the 2011 biopic of the Conservative British prime minister.

Because Streep portrayed Thatcher, who was still alive when the film was released, in this way without consulting the politician’s family, Moore said Streep should “be careful when she speaks about disrespect for the afflicted” – the charge Streep laid at Trump’s door in her acceptance speech at the Globes.




The Golden Globes is a farce






A show off – your naked body ‘covered’ (why bother so by the way?) scantily  by see-through expensive cloth.Or your armpit hair. Show off your wealth, your success (often as a result not of your acting but who you sleep with). Contribute richly  to immorality and show it is OK, in fact it is fine.

One actress said violence breeds violence referring to something or was it somebody else? But that is it exactly. That is Hollywood! Where  can you make the most violent films and win a prize?  And of course very important  introduce a new way of speaking , if you blank out f*ck, you are left without any talking movies.It is just one long bleep.

But what grates me the most is that it has now become a political platform.Where was Miss- Holier- than- thou (remember she is only an actress nothing more) when Maggie Thatcher’s family requested that she does not portray Maggie at the end of her life out of respect. No ways, to be ignored. So really she can be added to the list of those who do not respect others. A Five star hypocrite! But neither do I now have any respect for her.She is a fraud. Like many  (most) of the Hollywood actors and actresses.

No I did not watch it but BBC rushed to tell me what who said.
