sailing………….

old vavi fool recons that the private sector must invest more money in south africa?………….why?

Who in their right minds is gonna invest their money in a sinking ship that is sailing dangerously close to  the edge of the world with a bunch of raving ignorant lunatics at the helm?

You would probably get more sense, integrity and a better return on your money if you cast your lot with  davy jones and the living dead on the flying dutchman.

haha arghhh me hearties….food for thought and a little social ,economic satire just because i can…..

yo ho ho…….now youll have to excuse me as ive got a wedding to attend……………..

preamble to the rest of my life…..

Morning all

Well im getting married tomorrow morning. Up until now ive not considered this as any big deal at all but ive gotta admit im quite excited.

The girls are all very excited too especially about the fact that their surname will be changing to mine and i will become their “real” dad

They were practicing their new signatures last night and are very excited about this, They did not quite get the concept though because they started telling me what they wish to change their first names too?….things like jade and charpey and beyonce and such nonsense were mentioned and i had to explain to them that no we are not changing their first names but only their surname….very cute.

I did however have a little fun with them by insisting that im going to change their names to ethel and gertrude….they were not very impressed with these names and i teased and milked it to the max….good fun.

So ill be away on my honeymoon for the next couple of weeks. Hopefully ill have something interesting to blog about when i get back instead of just cut and paste music.

Im looking forward to the time out, time to do nothing but what i wish or time to do absolutly nothing at all….a rare commodity indeed

I may actually get round to taking some cool pictures again.

see you all in a couple of weeks.

Have a greatday all

Morning all

Here is one of my all time ever favourite pieces of music by  my very all time favouirite musician ….ever……rock on J S BACH.

I cant explain why i like this piece of music so much other than to say that it takes me to another place  that is far removed from this nasty, ugly world in which we live.

Bring ’em all in, bring ’em all in, bring ’em all in
Bring ’em all in, bring ’em all into my heart

Stand ’em in the light

Bring ’em all in, bring ’em all in, bring ’em all in
Bring ’em all in, bring ’em all into my heart
Bring ’em all in, bring ’em all in, bring ’em all in
Bring ’em all in, bring ’em all into my heart

Bring ’em out of purdah
Bring ’em out of store
Bring ’em out of hiding
Lay them at my door

Bring ’em all in, bring ’em all in, bring ’em all in
Bring ’em all in, bring ’em all into my heart
Bring ’em all in, bring ’em all in, bring ’em all in

Bring the unforgiven
Bring the unredeemed
Bring the lost and nameless
Let ’em all be seen

Bring ’em out of exile
Bring ’em out of sleep
Bring ’em to the portal
Lay them at my feet

Bring ’em all in, bring ’em all in, bring ’em all in
Bring ’em all in, bring ’em all into my heart
Bring ’em all in, bring ’em all in, bring ’em all in
Bring ’em all in, bring ’em all into my heart

Have a greatday all

i have a new toy……………..

Howdy all

Well ive not been around for a while ….just not been into blogging latly…i guess a change is as good as a holiday.

So here is my new toy

Its called a hoyt vtec and it is really cool and shoots really accurately. The draw weight is adjustable between 60 -70 lbs so its quite powerful. I have it set closer to the 60 lbs end as im not such a big man and this takes considerable strength. I battled to draw the bow at first but ive learned that a lot of it is technique and not so much brute strength. You have to train yourself to use that muscle that runs down the side of your back and not your arms only. I have to say that this left me rather stiff and sore in the beginning but im getting used to it and can now fire about a dozen arrows before it starts to get sore and then i start to shake and the the arrows become innaccurate…but im getting there…..practice makes perfect.

I am really pleased with this toy as it is super powerful and very accurate and i will increase the poundage as i get stronger…..a beautiful piece of equiptment indeed.

If any of you people are interested in bowS i strongly recommend that you go have a chat with these guys.

These guys gave me really good service. I walked into the shop with almost no knowledge of what i wanted and they went out of their way to find what i wanted. I spent about three hours in the shop whilst they fitted the bow out to my specific physique, strength and price range. etc .Then they took me to their shooting range and taught me the basics of how to use it and tweaked it further to hone my skills.

It is a long time since ive experienced such great service in south africa….thanks guys.

Have a greatday all

edit……oh and i forgot….i got a cool free hat too……….with an apple on it…….roll on william tell……….i tried to convince my step daughter to stand in the garden with an apple on her head but shes not going for it….silly girl.
