Laughter the best medicine
Stress is the reaction of a person on a perception that a certain situation is threatening in some way. This can be anything and it will differ from person to person-because it is a highly personalized perception of a threat-real or unreal. When stress is experienced the brain releases a flood of adrenaline and hormones, especially cortisol, which temporarily halts normal functions. In the long run organs and the brain are damaged by these chemicals -attacking memory and cognitive skills.
How do we fight these negative influences on the human body? Medicine is a helpful way to help people to cope during difficult times, but it should be the last resort. There are several ways to fight these harmful hormones in a natural and even fun way.
The first question is to ask oneself is: Is this threat real or am I exaggerating? If the threat is real-the next step is to manage it, to eliminate it or to find ways to cope with it.
One can protect oneself against the harmful hi-jacking of stress. For instance: when Immunoglobulin A (IgA) is released in the brain it protects the human body against bacteria and viruses. Five minutes of recalling an angry experience suppresses IgA levels for six hours. However, five minutes of sincere caring or compassion or even thinking about a positive experience boosted IgA levels for six hours. Note: you do not have to receive the caring-even when you just feel the care-whether it is a pet or a friend or a stranger-it can be beneficial to your health.
Laughter can also be the best medicine. The physiological study of laughter has its own name…"gelotology". How laughter affects the nervous system and rest of the body is not completely understood. A new area of neuroscience called "Psychoneuroimmunology" studies the interactions between the brain and the immune system. The field of psychoneuroimmunology combines the methods and techniques of psychology, neuroscience and immunology. Psychoneuroimmunological experiments usually focus on how stress affects the nervous system and disease states. Laughter has been shown to cause changes in the autonomic nervous system and also to alter stress hormone and neurotransmitter levels. For example, 60 min. of watching a humorous video caused the reductions in the levels of three harmful brain chemicals, including cortisol.
Exercise is another low budget, non-pharmaceutical way to boost your immune system, energy levels and positive outlook. This can include any exercise: from sex to gardening. Better if it builds up a sweat, though then it releases an inpour of positive energy to the brain, body and mind.
So before you give in to your negative mood, self hatred, anger or helplessness: ask –“ Is this threat real or am I exaggerating?” Then start to work on ways to eliminate or manage it . And to keep up your energy levels and fighting spirit: keep happy thoughts, laugh and exercise-it can all keep you healthy!
Happy thoughts from my heart to yours.

South African National Parks

I will now start a series on the South African National Parks. National parks offer visitors an unparalleled diversity of adventure tourism opportunities including game viewing, bush walks, canoeing and exposure to cultural and historical experiences.

Fifteen of South Africa's 21 national parks offer park or camp-run accommodation. Most parks and rest-camps have retail facilities and restaurants. Across the parks, there are a total of 6 000 beds and 1 000 camping and caravan sites, which can accommodate almost
12 000 overnight guests.

Marakele National Park
The Marakele National Park in the heart of the Waterberg Mountains in Limpopo, as its Tswana name suggests, has become a "place of sanctuary" for an impressive variety of wildlife due to its location in the transitional zone between the dry western and moister eastern regions of South Africa. Contrasting majestic mountain landscapes, grass-clad hills and deep valleys characterise the park.

Rare finds of yellowwood and cedar trees, five-metre high cycads and tree ferns, are some of the plant species found here. All the large game species from elephant and rhino to the big cats as well as an amazing variety of birds including what's probably the largest colony of endangered Cape vultures (more than 800 breeding pairs) in the world, have settled here.

A narrow tar road takes visitors up to the top of the Waterberg massif, where the views and scenery are spectacular. From this height vultures soar past at close quarters.

Antelope species such as reedbuck, mountain reedbuck, eland and tsessebe can be found in the park.

Year proclaimed: 1993
Current size: 507.3 square kilometres
Province: Limpopo

The History of South Africa

I thought this might be of interest to overseas readers, I will be featuring more sections in future newsletters

If the history of South Africa is in large part one of racial divisiveness, today it can also be seen as the story of the creation - from tremendous diversity - of a single nation.

The gathering storm
The 1950s were to bring increasingly repressive laws and increasing resistance. The Group Areas Act and the Population Registration Act were passed in 1950, the pass laws came in 1952 and the Separate Amenities Act in 1953. In that year, Malan retired and JG Strijdom became Prime Minister.

In reaction to this came the Defiance Campaign of 1952, which led to the jailing of thousands. The result was increased unity among resistance groups with the forming of the Congress Alliance, which included black, coloured, Indian and white organisations, as well as the South African Congress of Trade Unions.

In 1954 a campaign against the deliberately inferior Bantu education system was launched.

The following year saw two significant events. Unable to gain the two-thirds required to remove coloureds from the common voters' roll, the government changed the composition of the Senate by increasing its size (and consequently the Nationalist majority).

The second watershed moment came when the Freedom Charter - based on the principles of human rights and non-racialism - was signed in Soweto on June 26 1955. Reaction was swift: the following year 156 leaders of the ANC and its allies were charged with high treason. The longest trial in South African history was to lead to the acquittal of all accused in 1961.

Strijdom died in 1958, to be succeeded by HF Verwoerd. The following year representatives of blacks were removed from both houses of parliament and the Cape provincial council; on the other side of the political fence, the Pan-Africanist Congress (PAC), founded by Robert Sobukwe, broke away from the Congress Alliance. The stage was set for the even more polarised 1960s.

Smile a While

The doctor answered the phone and heard the familiar voice of a colleague on the other end of the line.
"We need a fourth for poker," said the friend. "I'll be right over," whispered the doctor.
As he was putting on his coat, his wife asked, "Is it serious?" "Oh yes, quite serious," said the doctor gravely. "Why there are three doctors there already!"

The Poker Player

Two couples were playing poker one evening. John accidentally dropped some cards on the floor.
When he bent down under the table to pick them up,he
noticed Bill's wife Sue wasn't wearing any underwear under her dress!
Shocked by this, John, upon trying to sit back up again, hit his head on the table and emerged red-faced.
Later, John went to the kitchen to get some refreshments. Bill's wife followed and asked, "Did you see anything that you liked under there?"
Surprised by her boldness,
John courageously admitted that, well indeed he did.
She said, "Well, you can have it, but it will cost you $500."
After taking a minute or two to assess the financial and moral costs of this offer, John confirms that he is interested.
She tells him that since
her husband Bill works Friday afternoons and John doesn't, John should be at her house around 2 PM Friday afternoon.
When Friday rolled around, John showed up at Bill's house at 2 PM sharp and
after paying Sue the agreed sum of $500 they went to the bedroom and closed their transaction, as agreed.
John quickly dressed and left. As usual,
Bill came home from work at 6 p.m. and upon entering the
house, asked his wife abruptly.
"Did John come by the house this afternoon?"
With a lump in her throat Sue answered "Why, yes,
he did stop by for a few minutes this afternoon."
Her heart nearly skipped a beat when her husband curtly asked,
"And did he
give you $500?"
In terror she assumed that somehow he had found out and after mustering
her best poker face, replied, "Well, yes, in fact he did give me $500!
"Bill, with a satisfied look on his face, surprised his wife by saying,
"Good, I was hoping he did. John came by the office this morning and borrowed $500 from me.
He promised me he'd stop by our house this afternoon
on his way home and pay me back."
Now THAT, my friends, is a poker player.

Zimbabwe update

For the latest on happenings in Zimbabwe, go to:  and subscribe to their newsletter, a really good source of current information

Cathy Buckle has started writing again from Zimbabwe, her letter is below.

Here is Cathy's letter:

Dear Family and Friends,
There’s nothing that can put Zimbabweans into a bad mood quicker than no water or no electricity. Put the two together and you can almost see people’s blood pressure rising. A collapse of the national electricity grid on Wednesday plunged most of the country into the dark. That night the clatter of generators rang out from every direction; the noise was deafening and the air vibrated! ZBC TV ran a crawl line on the screen during the main evening news bulletin calling for people to switch off their geysers and lights to save electricity. What electricity, we all shouted, as we watched battery powered TV’s, because there was no electricity to save.

Ironically the national black out came in the same week that the protest group WOZA delivered 101,000 petition signatures to parliament In Harare for presentation to the Anti Corruption and Monopolies Committee due to sit during the week. WOZA’s ‘anti abuse of power’ petition has long been calling for reduced electricity charges and for a pre-paid metering system to be introduced.

In my home town, calls to the local electricity supply office resulted in a variety of reasons for what very rapidly degenerated into rolling
18 hour a day power cuts. We were told that the hydro electricity generators at Kariba Dam were being maintained, then that the thermal units at Hwange weren’t working and finally, the clearest of all reasons given was that there just wasn’t enough electricity in the country. An article in the press later in the week quoted a Zesa spokesman as saying there was “an unstable grid, resulting in the disconnection of inter connectors.’ The article spoke about a two hour national blackout but in many places it seems the inter connectors are still disconnected because we are still in the dark!

In my home town the power cut continued for the next three days.
Lights flickered on between 11pm and midnight and went off again a few hours later, long before sunrise. If you are lucky it flicks on for an hour or two in the afternoon but don’t bank on it! Coping with five hours of electricity a day, and then only in the middle of the night, is gruelling. We had got used to this a couple of years ago when daily extended power cuts were the norm but it comes as a shocker this time round when many of us are woefully unprepared.

You can hardly hear yourself think, let alone hold a conversation with anyone as you walk around town, negotiating the smoking, roaring generators that clutter the pavements. Everywhere except the government buildings that is, where the norm is, as always, no change.
Outside the passport office people are ordered to queue on the other side of the road providing a deadly hazard for drivers when suddenly a score or more surge across the road, running to be allowed in the gate in small batches. At the Post Office where civil servants and pensioners get their monthly payments, it is utter mayhem which is embarrassing and shameful to witness. With nowhere to sit or shelter, hundreds crowd the car park, pavements and road, standing for hours at a time in the full sun waiting to get their meagre salaries or even more meagre pensions. Payments seem to be dependent on electricity to power computers and people wait without apology or explanation from officials within.

To all this mayhem add no water. No electricity means no water can be pumped and for three days my home town has been bone dry. Not a drop in any tap, sink or toilet. Everywhere we go we apologise to people for smelling and at every stream and shallow well, crowds of women scoop water out into containers to carry home. A borehole has been sunk in the town’s green, a small park which used to have pretty gardens, lawns and benches. Now lines of people wait their turn to get to the hand pump and draw a few litres of water to carry home. The lawns have turned to dust and the plastic water containers are piled up where once the flower beds were. When you have to physically carry every litre of water that you need, everything takes on a very different perspective.

Hard to believe that life is still like this, two and a half years into our so called unity government. Even harder to explain to outsiders who say: but everything’s OK in Zimbabwe now isn’t it?
Far from it and after a bad week it seemed inevitable that something daft would happen and it did, on Friday. An announcement came from Zesa – the electricity supplier with no electricity to supply. They said that tariffs are to increase by 31% from the 1st of September.
Pay more for less must be their new slogan.
Until next time, thanks for reading,

Additional Income

I have joined and it works, it is not a get rich quick scheme but with patience it can build up to a useful extra monthly income, it does require a little bit of marketing as well as a low monthly subscription, but, bottom line, it works.
This company is definitely not a scam. Be Motivated Today provides a motivational service and has great motivational products. The CEO, Arnfried Klein-Werner, is an International Motivational Speaker. He has tried and studied many systems that don't work and after 13 years developed a system that actually does work and is creating
an additional income for many South Africans already. He understands people's fears and therefore offers a 100% money-back guarantee, if you don't make money after 6 months. In other words you have nothing to lose.....
You have nothing to lose. I encourage you to visit the website and register to try the products and service out for free. Click here for more information. Register as a free trial member then upgrade to start your income stream.

I must add that I got just over R900 in commission in February, every little bit helps. It takes some time, but it will happen eventually. Remember to upgrade to start participating in the income stream.

I received this email recently:

Yes, out of curiosity I visited Be Motivated Today during September 2009, but only joined during August 2010, what a waste of time!!!.
If I knew what was happening during the year I wasted, man, I would have joined immediately after I  read the details of the setup.
I now have a waiting list of seven on my downline (one already joined as Silver), the others are bound to join during November and they are jumping around purely from excitement to get started and its rubbing off on me as well.
Just one question: My intention is to place an invitation advertisement on the rear window of my car, do you think it could shake some people out of their dreams and make them joining us?

Silversands Online casino

We usually go to Carnival City, our local entertainment complex about twice a month for a movie, a good meal and a flutter at the tables or machines. Most times it is crowded and my favourite machines are taken. Then I came across Silversands online casino. You simply sign up, download some software and you can practice with fun money to your heart's content before you play with the real thing.
