I must explain that we have a large number of animals on the farm.

The dogs and cats are having a bit of a problem sorting out dominance.

The dogs tried all the tricks of pretending to be great friends.

This was met with a bit of agression from some cats that thought this was condescending


The cats even tried to fight the dogs with their latest armoury.

One of the dogs that has just come back from rehab decided to give them a happy shot as he isn`t into violence.

One of the cats was seen to be taking off in a bit of a hurry to find normality.

At least the pig is happy with the outcome.

I remember reading an article on what to call the national flag, one of the sugestions was ” Ama Flapper Flapper “.


there was also a lot of references on how to treat the Flag. This is quite amusing if you see what the government does with it. Scarves,  Shirts and dresses seem to be worn by many, which is in contravention of the list of rules.

Another interesting thing is the naming of various clubs, we have ” Bafana Bafana “, and ” Manyana Manyana ” , Boys and girls to most of us.  Then we have ” Ama Glug Glug ” do they train on Beer?  Then we have ” Ama Crocker Crocker ” is that for the old people or the disabled team ?

They now have renamed the Cricket team ” Proteas” and want to change the Rugby Springboks , which are known world wide. They could made it a South African household name by calling it  ” Zambuk Zambuk ” as a majority of households have used a tin at sometime in their lives.

Less than a Year ago this Pig sat on my lap in the car when we moved her.

Have you ever tried to bath a pig this size ? I have today. I am looking after a Vietnamese potbellied pig for my Daughter and she loves to be brushed at l;east once a day. She was developing a lot of what looked like dandruff so I thought it would be a good idea to use some organic shampoo on her. I brushed her over one side when she laid down I brushed warm water over her and massaged the shampoo into her fur. This worked very well until I started to wash all the suds off of her and something spooked her. I then had to follow her around the car park with jugs of water to rinse her off.  The other side will have to wait until tomorrow when she has calmed down.

Is this where we go to when we get too old, to do what we desire that makes us happy?

Woouw there’s one for the book.

You may have to read this twice.

I`ve always wondered about Evolution, it would seem that the middle 5 could be left out. The other thought is , why has evolution like Darwin describes stopped. Then my thoughts were interrupted and I was told  to be careful about re-writing the history books.

Life is never boring, unless you want it to be.

How did your day start ? Was it on the stoop watching the Sun rise, with a cup of coffee and a camera.

The finally it pops up over the mountain and I start to feel the warmth of the sun.

I found this in an email last week and thought how happy the Royal Family seem after all the publicity. They are obviously putting the ” nude photo episode ” behind them and carrying on as usual. Plenty of family photo`s.


That`s Photoshop for you, not like the one below.

You can mock anyone in the world , so long as they are not our government. 🙂

I heard that they have found a way to stop crime in this county, “ Make it into a Government Department“, then it will never work.

This was on a blog, so maybe it was also Photoshoped.

Someone said “what`s the problem, we both have black presidents now.

This is not the alarming part of computerisation.

The alarming thing is that it`s easier to photograph a drowning, than calling 911 and being put on hold. You then have the evidence to prove how they drowned.

Hoping my humour didn`t offend anyone, but I took a walk on the beach anyway and thought of captions for these objects.

(1)  I have only found these Sea Slugs in one part of the lagoon.

(2)  Someone had a morning coffee before me.

(3) And they brought their dog with them.

(4) another erupting volcano.

(5) Is that you under there Julius.

(6) I don`t know which way to go.

Most days start like this , or so we think. There`s still a bit of blue sky up there, so there`s hope.

I don`t think when they made these bikes they ever thought it would carry 9 people. But then again I remember some of the things that I carried on my bikes and latter on cars.

While going through the Seal colony at Robberg Peninsular I looked up in the rocks and saw the allusive Caracul. The only other one I have seen  was in the Arbour at Tokia many years ago.

This pig was born like this but the owner in China trained it to walk on it`s front legs. When Alice  was young she used to stand on her back legs and scratch at the gate when I went to feed her.

It was a very light Sunset or I over exposed it. Red sky at night cant be all that bad either.

Man who wants pretty nurse, must be patient.

Passionate kiss, like spider web, leads to undoing of fly.

Lady who goes camping must beware of evil intent.

Squirrel who runs up woman’s leg will not find nuts.

Man who leaps off cliff jumps to conclusion.

Man who runs in front of car gets tired, man who runs behind car gets exhausted.

Man who eats many prunes get good run for money.

War does not determine who is right, it determines who is left.

Man who fight with wife all day get no piece at night.

It takes many nails to build a crib, but only one screw to fill it.

Man who drives like hell is bound to get there.

Man who stands on toilet is high on pot.

Man who live in glass house should change clothes in basement.

Man who fish in other man’s well often catch crabs.

Today I watched the first fight between the pig and a broody hen. unfortunately I was not quick enough with my camera as it was very unexpected.



This all came about when my daughter asked me to go and have a look at the chicks that have just been hatched by the broody hens. Well as usual the pig followed me but was chased away by one of the hens. The pig didn`t have much chance to fight back as she was surprised when the hen flew at her using its beak and claws. All was forgotten in a few minutes and things got back to normal.


Since they both watched the latest video they seem to have forgotten their differences.


This little piggy went to the orthodontist who claimed to be a pig lover.

Have a Great Week.

Just a spot of jelly humour. The underneath looks like some aliens that we see on cheap video`s. When seen from the top it could be a new type of UFO. It was pointed out that maybe it was Juju buried under the sand. What are your ideas ?
