This picture in the newspaper was very confusing. The Police came under fire from strikers today and retaliated by throwing stones. It is believed that the government has withdrawn all firearms from the police. There are reports that due to the unrest they will be issued with the new modified revolvers to control riots.

I left this one out on the last blog

I think Nell was on the school board at the time. However the next one is for the clever crooks.

.                            Do they think there is no crime before this point.

.                               It seems like its not only criminals that can`t spell.

.                    Sometimes it`s not what you write, but where on the board.

.                                This sign was put up too late.

.                        Lady with the blue writing on her placard, it`s 2012

.                              Fitted to all toilets doors in Parliament.

.                           Smile Please !  just  one for the holiday albumn.

.                                  Don`t worry about me…………

                                                              Enjoy every day as it comes.

A while ago KFC had a puppet of Julius to bring their product to the notice of SA. I thought it was hilarious because I thought he was a puppet. Now we have a cat food producer using ” Julius Meeowlema” as  a cat eating their product.

On searching the Web it seems there are a lot of  jokes about Jellytotse.

This seemed unusual considering  the investigation going on.

We seem to have another player in the mix.

This is a variation on the KFC advert.

This was obviously before he ate KFC.

Then there was the stamp that would not stick and was withdrawn.

Then we had the power outages.

Then “thenack ” on iblog started a column on suicides after it was reported that ” I would rather kill myself rather than commit suicide”

Then there was a headline in the Sunday Times ” Let them eat cake” . But no mention of the Wine and Whisky though.

This joke was also found on ” Wonky.com”

President Zuma meets with the Queen of England He asks her,
“Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give to me?”

“Well,” says the Queen, “the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people.”

Zuma frowns. “But how do I know the people around me are really intelligent?”

The Queen takes a sip of tea. “Oh, that’s easy. You just ask them to answer an intelligence riddle.”

The Queen pushes a button on her intercom. “Please send Tony Blair in here, would you?”

Tony Blair walks into the room “Yes, my Queen?”

The Queen smiles. “Answer me this, please, Tony. Your mother and Father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?”

Without pausing for a moment, Tony Blair answers, “That would be me.”

“Yes! Very good,” says the Queen.

Back in Cape town , President Zuma asks to speak with Julius Malema.

“Answer this for me. Your mother and your Father have a child. It’s not your brother and it’s not your sister. Who is it?”

“I’m not sure,” says Julius. “Let me get back to you on that one.”

Julius goes to his advisors and asks everyone, but none can give him an answer. Finally, he ends up at the V&A Waterfront and bumps into Mark Lottering.

Julius looks around to see if anyone can overhear them, and he whispers, “Mark! Can you answer this for me? Your mother and father have a child and it’s not your brother or your sister.
Who is it?”

Mark whispers back, “That’s easy. It’s me!”

Julius smiles and says “Thanks!”

Julius goes back to Parliament to speak with Pres Zuma.
“Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It’s Mark Lottering.”

Zuma gets up, stomps over to Julius, and angrily yells into his face, “No, you idiot! It’s Tony Blair

I was watching this bird from the stoop thinking maybe it was a Sparrow Hawk when it decided to land on one of the trees at the far side of the dam. Looking through the photo`s I had taken this one came up on the screen. I enlarged it as big as possible but still thought it was a monkey.

Only when seeing the next picture on the screen and checking the tree did I realise it was the Hawk from a different position.

Looking around the side of my car and found the cat had been hunting. well she is keeping the rodents down. If you have animal feed you will have rats, so we have 4 cats also. 🙂

Taking a walk round the dam that I see from my stoop I see the usual suspects, except the mother Duck now has some youngsters.

The other birds seem to be too busy searching for food. they seem to be a cross between a Hadida and the White Ibis.

Today we were treated to a display of old biplanes. But they still landed faster than I could focus my camera. 🙂

On walking back from the flight path I noticed this footprint, it is the size of the palm of my hand. I found some spoor that was too large for Alice so I was wondering if this print was from one of the big baboons that I see in the area, what do you think?

Alice is still looking for a Hog, but hopes you all have a great weekend.

I thought I would try my cellphone camera out and was pleasantly surprised.  I was given a Samsung cellphone a few weeks ago and finally found that I could change the pixel rating.  I took this photo and then cropped the small part with the Ducks. It still has enough definition for a 500×330 pixel picture for blogging.

It is difficult to see the ducks in the first photo but it didn`t loose too much when cropped.

I am very surprised to find that for two days on the run I am still connected to the Internet. Its good because I can read the blogs of all the people that have visited mine. I think that all bloggers should have an email address on their blog header then we could make a more personal comment. My blogs have changed over the years, I started off mostly with practical info but people seem to prefer a more personal blog with a bit of humour.

Since staying in the sticks my blogs are getting a bit polarized and when I run out of new things I resort to cut and past. I thank all my friends for the emails containing very good material.

I was reading a blog by Roly earlier where he wrote about keeping too many things, well this was a wall in my workshop six months ago.

I have now sent most of it tomy brother in the UK to put on the wall of his Dojo .                                             (senei@shingitaikarate.com )

Many cut and paste items are either computer or animal orientated. Alice the pig is not mine she belongs to my daughter, but it takes a lot of time to keep her happy. Every day she has food cooked and has now insisted on a good brushing  and de-ticking twice a day after meals. 🙂

Living on a farm has it`s problems , especially when I want to print. 🙂

I am the Worlds worst salesman as most of the things I have made have been given away. I made a lot of ashtrays like this and some walking sticks and my youngest daughter (info@oceansafaris.co.za ) sold them in her shop. I did write a article on how to cast and make these on,  my web page.

I still find Sunrise and sunset photo`s very interesting as there are no two the same. Also lightning is interesting but requires a lot of frames before you get a good one.

This blog is more like ” pictures file re-visited” or just ramblings of an old blogger. 🙂

Enjoy your weekend, all the best Leo

Study this sign and see what you can make of the picture in the circle.

Is it:- (a) A Beetle from the back?  (b) Someone pictured from the back having a crap?

Although insects and snakes do not worry me to that extent, there are a lot who are.

Now this is a different story, how to keep all 3 heads out of the  way, the gladiators used a metal net against a Trident. 🙂

Now there is a cheap form of transport and you can take two friends for a drink. You are not likely to crash into anything, but it could be difficult staying on at speed.

To finish off with, a bit of toilet humour.

Well enjoy your week,  I just have to hope I get the internet tomorrow, if not its back to photography. Where I live it is very unpredictable and sometimes only connects twice a week.
