I haven`t blogged for a while and am suffering from withdrawal as I used to be a bloggerholic. The sky in the morning always seems more interesting in the winter months soΒ  will start off with yesterday.

As we have a problem with water in the Cape its quite surprising that there are so many veggies still growing.I`ve been using rain water for a while now and it`s getting low so may have to use grey water.

There are quite a few insects and other creepy crawlies around. i find the Prey Mantis very resourceful.When they catch a bee or wasp they keep the sting out of the way while they eat it.i was very surprise to see the even eat Gecko`s, but they do it while it is alive.

There is always a place for a joke and laughter is the best medicine.

have you ever cooked an egg in the early morning and thought it came from outer space ?

Then there is the time when you wonder where you put your reading glasses because the print is too small.

Before I go to sleep I like a hot cup of something, but this cup was a bit cold. Don`t put a full cup in the microwave πŸ™‚

If your going to have a few glasses of wine don`t start warming the snacks.

it`s funny but the older you get the more you want to forget birthdays. Unfortunately when you have kids and grand kids this is impossible. it`s also usual to get things that are immediately useful on these days. This year was a little different because we have quite a lot of power outages now, so the only thing you can do is read. I was given a nice large rechargeable lamp which not only has 5Β  settings for the LED`s but can also be charged with the solar panel provided. I can now charge my phones either from the lamp battery or solar power.

As well as this lamp I got a small battery operated one that clips on the page of the book plus lots of eats and some new t-shirts. so this year was an eye opener and I got all useful presents. so maybe life isn`t too bad in the golden Years. πŸ™‚

I had to put this one in just to show the veiw I wake up to, for those who haven`t seen my blog before.

This is what itΒ  looks like most times when I go out on the Whale Watching boat.

When you can remember this a legal tender and could still buy something with it, you know you are old. πŸ™‚

There are still a lot of birds frequenting the garden and make very interesting animations.

I still love these stills that were taken with a time lapse setting.

This was taken at the Wolf Sanctuary when I last went there. When I saw this I thought of the old saying` Dog in a Manger ` although it`s not a dog it did make me smile.

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.

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.

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.

I think with all the bad news lately I think so humour is needed. I love putting jokes on my blog as it is quite uplifting reading through them.

I must start to look for some more jokes as some of these have been used before πŸ˜‰ I haven`t written much today due to unforeseeable circumstances which I hinted about earlier.

We have just got another power outage so i`m using my laptop as the battery is still full πŸ™‚

Why is it that sometimes when you try to comment on a page it`s made so difficult. With likes I usually thank them on their page as mostly their email account doesn`t work. Very few have ever replied if they do get through. Sending emails to people who comment is very rewarding andΒ  it`s easier to send info that you don`t want on your blog. I never go on `Facebook` so that`s why I don`t get too many `friends`. My oldest Daughter is into` Facebook` every day that it`s like a drug. Personally I think it`s strange that they spend so much time writing about their lives and situations, that there isn`t much time for living in the real world. I suppose some people would say that about blogging but at least that doesn`t take all day πŸ™‚

We seem to have quite a problem with potholes, but theyΒ  are a world phenomena. Every country has them, it`s just some have an ongoing system of repair. Unfortunately this falls under maintenance and governments don`t like to spend money on other people, basically the tax payer πŸ™‚

Since the price of petrol went up there has been an increase in the sales of motorbikes. They carry more people , cost less to run, easier to park and it keeps the family together πŸ™‚
