Humorous digest in the end.

2015-07-14 07.14.06

First a sunrise then I will show what I commented on in my last blog.
through the lens
This is the method I use to reply to most of my likes. Click on the email list of blogs. Delete the date which is usually months old. Then click on the username, then you get the last blog written. Then leave a like and comment and wait. I personally have had only few comments over the years but they have been constant and ranged over many different sites. I have been trying to reach `Weelyboy` who then became `Sarcasm`, I found his Satire blogs very entertaining and read most of them. As all his blogs have been deleted now I was wondering if his illness had got worse or if he is no longer with us. We started together on blat many years ago and like most early bloggers moved on from site to site as they filled with commercial blogs. Now there are less than half a dozen old bloggers on this site, maybe blogging has been taken over by social media like Facebook and twitter.

Maybe a few jokes from the hard drive before i delete them also.

vervort

Excuses that become black humor.

militarised

As things are.

ambulance2

The Medical problems.

gunshots horn

Make the car roadworthy.

gantry etoll

One answer to e-tolls.

malema-corruption

Is this a joke ? I think he forgot about the money in black bags.

Digest 478.

Another day another blog. I wish I could get back to the days when at least one a day was published. I think a lot of people click on likes as they do on twitter and facebook because it is so easy on wordpress. I have tried to comment on these likes but have only twice had a reply, can anyone comment on this. When you get a like sometimes there are 3 blogs written underneath, why are they months behind the current date. I find to get their latest blog is to bring it up on the address bar and delete everything except the user name and wordpress.com.

I still take a photo of the sunrise most mornings if it looks colorful. Many times it is just plain orange and the sun just pops up over the mountain with a glare that makes photography impossible.

The Burchell`s Coucal is one of the birds that frequent the garden very often. They seem to like fresh meat as they have been seen with large snails and big spiders. We have a lot of small birds in the hedges outside the walls and I suspect that they are partial to young fledglings, as there is always a lot of noise when they go down there. As you can see, there are a lot of variations to the Coucal. I have seen a red one in the bird book but never seen it in the garden.

Being near the Police Station is quite lively as there are plenty of marches every month. These are always accompanied by a brass band and start in the high street and come up the hill. As there have been a lot of child rape and killings in certain areas they are protesting again. The fist time, it was midnight when they started the protest and went on for two hours. The singing was the same as for all the other protests and was very well harmonized, it was just the wrong time of day.

After 20 years I thought this was beyond belief that someone would carry a banner with “Give us back our freedom“ . This went on most of the day and was started by one of the main unions. This was a complaint that too many rapist and murderers were getting bail and re-offending so they wanted the bail revoked on these people.

A Weekly Digest.

I haven`t done much blogging for a few months so this one will be a bit long. Have you ever tried to revive an old blog that`s on another site, I have and it can be very disappointing when the forbidden notice comes up on the screen. forbiden

This came up on iblog which is not a problem as it hasn`t been updated since 2012. iblog2

This unfortunately was taken with a bad cell phone and is out of focus. The pictures at the bottom used to be changed every day to show who were the top favorites.

open seed

Trying to grow my big Sea Bean didn`t work out very well as I over watered it in a heavy soil and it went black. I think I should have grown it like the Avacado Pear pips on the window ledge.

I still enjoy watching the sunrise every morning with my first coffee and cigarette. then at night time there is always the Sunset, if I remember.

Digital Image

Life is still amusing especially when you see things like this. Why are these men shoveling gravel into a front loader? Maybe someone didn`t read the instruction manual for the front loader.

This Autogiro is quite strange as it was built from a kit. It has a pusher prop at the back and the rotor spins as it moves forward to give it lift. I see it quite often down near the beach but it landed one day at the Airport near the farm. I don`t think they travel very fast as the helicopters leave it well behind.

girocopter

These Pansy Shells used to be found in abundance on the Plettenberg Bay beaches many years ago but I haven`t seen one there in the last five years. When I first started detecting on the beaches people said maybe I would find some shells there but so far they have been allusive.

If you think that it never snows in South African towns just look at this photo taken a few years ago. This is only about 200 meters from the sea. Even the beach had snow on it.

This was my brothers back garden in the UK the same year, as you can see the snow was a lot deeper there even 6 months later.

For people who like memorial foot paths, this was inlaid into the pavement near Buckingham Palace. Very similar to the sidewalk near Hollywood in the USA but smaller.

A bit of a surprise in the veg garden today, I pulled a few Turnips up for some soup and this one weighed 520 grams. the rest were about half the size. My Leeks are also OK for soup b the beetroots are very disappointing only 4 of them have germinated.

turnip 520gms 2606

I spend quite a bit of time on my computers and it is fascinating to see how some wifi outlets perform. I downloaded Vistumbler for free off the net and found it very good when driving round my area. In the early days there were a lot more open sights but now most people realize that this is expensive and not very good for security.

perfors wifi

This one drops out every now and then as the power goes down.

HUAWEI ZBF7RSQS

This not have the power but at least it`s reliable.

Most of the sunrises this last few weeks have been very tame with very little color in them. Maybe it`s because of the rain clouds hanging over them. When it `s clear the only time you get a bit of color is as the sun comes up over the mountain, but without the cloud it`s just very bright with a slight corona of yellow.

Well it is a sad farewell from the Whales as they leave the bay. That is my last free ride on the Whale Watching boats as my Daughter and Son in Law have sold the business. Over the years I have more photos than I can put on a blog so I can`t complain.:-)

dolph shop

Even the shop is not decorated as well as it was, even the Dolphin skeleton has gone.

These were some of the sunrises I saw this week, most were like the grey one as we have had a bit of rain. i have been busy on OLX trying to get rid of a few hobby bits and pieces that I no longer need.My wife has also found a few things that she no longer needs also. It has been busy so I let my blogging time suffer. I tried putting them on facebook but had no replies. There is a second hand Plett on the web but have found it a bit difficult. Anyway I sold my lathe for twice what a local guy offered me so didn`t do too badly on OLX.

With not posting a blog for a while I thought my email wasn`t working but it was just no `likes` :-)

I think it`s best just to look in my jokes folder and see if there are still some I haven`t put on before.

Taking the night flight back from the UK I got a shot of the sunset, not as colourful as the South African ones though.

The trip back to south Africa was different this time. When I took the internal flight from Cape Town to George there was only 5 of us on the plane and they made us sit far apart. this was to distribute the weight evenly. ;-)

Up in the air at last.

It was a very quiet flight as we were all placed at widely spaced seats around the aircraft. we still only got peanuts to  eat and a small bottle of water.

After landing in George I was looking forward to the 80 minute drive home. I think that maybe I have watched too many Air Crash Investigations :-)
