Greetings everyone!  And a special welcome to all the new subscribers!  Why not ask your email contacts if they don't want to subscribe as well?

We have just returned from a trip to Kruger National Park. A highlight was AT LONG LAST getting a reasonably decent photo of a hippo yawning. After spending nearly an hour focusing on a pod of hippos at the Lake Panic hide, one of them did a huge yawn and I managed to get some pictures. To see one of them just scroll down. We also got some very nice leopard shots, just a pity that he was sitting behind some twigs and I did not get a clear shot. Next trip to Kruger is planned for November.

The freebie this time is a recipe eBook titled: Allied Cookery and was published in 1916. The purpose of the book was to procure funds in aid of the farmers in that part of France which was devastated by the invasion of the German armies and subsequently regained by the French.
This region, in part, one of the most fertile in France, and which sustained hundreds of thousands
of inhabitants engaged in agricultural pursuits, has been left desolate, with all buildings destroyed
and all farming implements, cattle, and farm products taken off by the invaders for military uses.
Its old men, women, and children, who survived the slaughter of invasion, are now undertaking the
labour of restoring their farms. To help in the supply of seeds, farm implements, and other simple
but essential means of enabling these suffering people to regain by their own efforts the necessaries of life, the compilers offer to the public this book on Cookery.
For anyone interested in old recipe books, this is a real gem. It was digitally scanned in other words you see the actual pages of the book as it was originally published. Scroll down to the freebie section to download the book.

The rugby section below has links to full details of the current Currie Cup competition as well as detailed World Cup statistics.

I have something very special for recipe book collectors. Just scroll down to the Very Old Recipe eBook section and add 37 very old recipe books to your recipe collection!

Something different in the recipe section. I will over the next 12 issues be placing recipes from a 1913 recipe book titled 52 Sunday Dinners - A Book of Recipes Arranged on a unique plan, combining helpful suggestions for appetizing, well-balanced menus, with all the newest ideas and latest discoveries in the preparation of tasty, wholesome cookery. This means that you will be able to journey back almost a century and try out some of the dished they enjoyed for Sunday dinner.

Andy Nix Photography

Seeing that photography is my passion I thought it about time to feature a South African photographer in my newsletter. I have been a fan of Andy for some time now and would like to share the link to her blog. She is a great photographer and is fortunate enough to live in the Fairest Cape where great landscapes just beg to be photographed.

Mirna van Wyk

Mirna is an educational psychologist from Stellenbosch. She taught at several schools, amongst others Stellenbosch High School, Bloemhof Girls’ High and Jan Kriel School for learners with barriers to learning. She is a mother, loves art, the ocean and children.

I would like to share with your this article by a colleague. I have changed it here and there to fit in with my readers’ needs. So to Jeanette, Susan, Petrus and all the other grandparents, parents and teachers who share their lives with me via the inter-net. Especially for you. These truths will also work with your partner and boss!
Doo-doo diaper-head!" That was the name Michael, age 5, called me in my first interview with his mother and him. Frustrated, and not wanting to be in a psychologist's office, Michael was angry and showed it the only way he knew how. Embarrassed, his mother calmly scolded him. As a psychologist, I want to see the behaviour in my office that parents often have trouble with at home. While Michael's outburst was helpful for me to see, I knew that his mother was disturbed by it. During the third session, Michael again became upset, but instead of resorting to calling me names, he took on a sour face, stared for a moment at me, turned abruptly away from me, and faced the window. His mom was upset. "I know you get frustrated with him, Mom," I responded, "but he's showing better behaviour and doing a child's version of a self-imposed timeout. Actually, it's better than calling me names."
Small steps to help your child
Children and adolescents with learning disabilities (LD) and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) often have social and behaviour problems along with their learning and attention problems. As a result, many grow up thinking the world will tolerate their unruly or just plain "rude" behaviour. The problem with our approach is two-fold: first, we don't reinforce small changes, and second, we tend not to teach skills but use punishment instead.
When students fail a subject, say maths, we don't expect them to immediately make an A. Instead, we look for slight improvements like a D- with our tutoring. This signifies they are moving in the right direction. Yet when it comes to behaviour, we expect children and adolescents who misbehave to immediately right their wrongs and exhibit perfect behaviour, hence, go from an F to an A. In their attempt to get better and improve their behaviour, they often move up a step or two on "the ladder of better behaviour" only to have their improvement not acknowledged but criticized.
Children especially need to know what behaviours we want to see instead, not just what not to do, as we so often let them know through our punishment. Being specific about expected behaviours and movement in the right direction is vitally important and essential to kids. If we are not clear with our expectations and simple encouragement, they relapse to their original poor behaviour.
An easy and extremely effective way to change a child's behaviour is to note the small improvements or steps that he takes. For many inappropriate behaviours, or misbehaviours, this is an effective tool to instigate change.
For instance, many parents hate the insolent and disrespectful tone with which their adolescent often talks to them. "How do I make him stop talking to me like that?" is often the response of a parent. Instead of just telling your sullen adolescent not to talk to you that way, find a time he is talking to you with a respectful and appropriate tone, and then say, "Jeff, see how you're talking to me now? That's how I want you to talk to me when you are angry or upset with me. I can hear you much better. Please do more of that." Even if your teenager is talking to you about new computer games or a sports event, he is less defensive and better able to register what he is doing and how he is communicating with you so he can replicate it.
Now just commenting on better behaviour once will not ensure that all future problems are solved. Remember, kids don't go from F's to A's in one quick motion but rather with persistence, encouragement, and over time. Hence, you will have to find several times over the course of many days that your adolescent is talking in a respectful tone.
Small changes become big changes
While improved behaviour doesn't occur instantly, we often inadvertently discourage it by not noting small changes. By setting the bar lower, and raising it consistently over time, we are much more likely to get better behaviour from our obstinate youngsters.
Finally, as far as Michael calling me a "diaper-head," I've been called worse.
With warmth from me to you.

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.

Mokala National Park
Mokala is one of the country's newest parks, situated in the far eastern corner of the Northern Cape. It comprises 19 611 hectares of Kalahari thornveld, savannah and Nama Karoo terrain interspersed with rocky outcrops, and with a wetland area that stretches for 18 kilometres.

Mokala is a Setswana name for a Camel Thorn, an incredible resource to wildlife who survive in often harsh conditions characteristic of this area. Many animals have been relocated to the park and include black and white rhino, tsessebe, roan antelope, red hartebeest, buffalo, gemsbok and black wildebeest.

Year proclaimed: 2007
Current size: 196.1 square kilometres
Province: Northern Cape

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.

Three decades of crisis
A turning point came at Sharpeville on March 21 1960 when a PAC-organised passive anti-pass campaign came to a bloody conclusion with police killing 69 unarmed protesters. A state of emergency was declared and the ANC, PAC and other organisations were banned. The resistance went underground.

The country's isolation increased in 1961 when, following a white referendum, South Africa became a republic and left the Commonwealth.

Mandela, meanwhile, had travelled through Africa. On his return in August 1962 he was arrested and received a three-year sentence for incitement.

In July 1963 a police raid on Lilliesleaf farm in Rivonia led to the arrest of several of Mandela's senior ANC colleagues, including Walter Sisulu. They were charged with sabotage and Mandela was brought from prison to stand trial with them. All were sentenced to life imprisonment and taken to Robben Island in 1964.

In September 1966 BJ Vorster became Prime Minister after the assassination in parliament of Verwoerd. Segregation became even stricter.

The first half of the next decade was marked by repression, militancy and strikes. On June 16 1976 the youth of Soweto marched against being taught in the medium of Afrikaans; police fired on them, precipitating massive violence. Nevertheless, an attempt was made to further the "homeland" policy, with Transkei being the first to accept nominal independence later that year.

A new movement known as Black Consciousness had become increasingly influential. The death as a result of police brutality of its charismatic founder, Steve Biko, shocked the world in 1977.

PW Botha, who became Prime Minister in 1978, tried to co-opt the coloured and Indian population in the early 1980s with a new constitution establishing a Tricameral Parliament, with separate houses for these groups. Opposition came from both left and right. The United Democratic Front, a coalition of anti-apartheid groups, organised boycotts of coloured and Indian elections in 1984. The country was being governed - as far as it was governable - under a state of emergency and in a spiral of resistance and repression.

Among the other organisations in the spotlight at this time were the trade union body Cosatu and Chief Mangosuthu Buthelezi's Inkatha, the latter involved in bloody conflict with pro-ANC factions.

Smile a While

England v Brazil Friendly

It is just before the England v Brazil friendly match.
Ronaldinho goes into the Brazilian changing room
to find all his teammates looking a bit glum.
"What's up?" he asks.

"Well, we're having trouble getting motivated for
this game. We know it's important but it's only
England. They're crap and we can't be bothered."
Ronaldinho looks at them and says
"Well, I reckon I can beat them by myself. You lads go down to the pub."
So Ronaldinho goes out to play England by himself
and the rest of the Brazilian team go off for a few jars.
After a few pints they wonder how the game is going,
so they get the landlord to put the teletext on.
A big cheer goes up as the screen reads:
Brazil 1 England 0
(Ronaldinho 10 minutes)
He is beating England all by himself!
A few pints later and the game is forgotten
until someone remembers "It must be full time now, let's see how he got on."
They put the teletext on.
"Result from the stadium:
Brazil 1 (Ronaldinho 10 minutes) - England 1 (Lampard 89 minutes)
They can't believe it;
he has single-handedly got a draw against England!!
They rush back to the stadium to congratulate Ronaldinho.
They find him in the dressing room, still in his gear,
sitting with his head in his hands.
He refuses to look at them.
"I've let you down, I've let you down." He wails.
"Don't be daft, you got a draw against England all by
yourself. And they only scored at the very, very end!"
"No, no, I have, I've let you down ...I got sent off after 12 minutes."

Help & Advice For Retirees

Fifteen years ago my wife and I moved into a
retirement development on Florida 's Southeast
coast - The Delray/Boca/Boynton Golf, Spa,
Bath and Tennis Club on Lake Fake-A-Hatchee.
There are 3000 lakes in Florida......only three are real.
Our biggest retirement concern was time management.
What were we going to do all day?
Let me assure you, passing the time is not a problem.
Your days will be eaten up by simple, daily activities.
Just getting out of your car takes 15 minutes.
Trying to find where you parked takes 20 minutes.
It takes 1/2 hour on the check-out line in
and one hour to return the item the next day.
Let me take you through a typical day.
We get up at 5:00 AM, have a quick breakfast
and join the early morning 'Walk and Talk Club.'
There are about 30 of us, and rain or shine
we walk around the streets, all talking at once.
Every development has some late
risers who stay in bed until 6 AM.
After a nimble walk avoiding irate drivers
out to make us road kill, we go back home,
shower and change for the next activity.
My wife goes directly to the pool for her underwater
Pilate’s class, followed by gasping for breath and CPR.
I put on my 'Ask me about my Grandchildren' T-shirt,
my plaid mid-calf shorts, my black socks and sandals and go to the clubhouse lobby for a nice nap.
Before you know it, it's time for lunch.
We go to to partake of the many tasty
samples dispensed by ladies in white hairnets.
All free!
After a filling lunch, if we don't have any doctor
appointments, we might go to the flea market
to see if any new white belts have come in,
or to buy a Rolex watch for $2.00.
We're usually back home by 2 PM to get ready for dinner.

People start lining up for the early bird about 3 PM,
but we get there by 3:45 PM, because we're late eaters.
The dinners are very popular because
of the large portions they serve.
You can take home enough food for the next day's lunch
and dinner, including extra bread, crackers, packets of mustard, relish, ketchup and Sweet-and-Low along with mints.
At 5:30 PM we're home ready to watch the 6 o'clock news.

By 6:30 PM we're fast asleep.
Then we get up and make 5 or 6 trips to the
bathroom during the night, and it's time to get up and start a new day all over again.  
Doctor related activities eat up most of your retirement time.
I enjoy reading old magazines in sub-zero
temperatures in the waiting room, so I don't mind.
Calling for test results also helps the days fly by.
It takes at least half an hour just getting
through the doctor's phone menu.
Then there's the hold time until you're
connected to the right party.
Sometimes they forget you're holding,
and the whole office goes off to lunch.
Should you find you still have time on
your hands, volunteering provides a rewarding opportunity to help the less fortunate.
Florida has the largest concentration of
seniors under five feet tall and they need our help.
I myself am a volunteer for
'The Vertically Challenged Over 80.'
I coach their basketball team,'The Arthritic Avengers.'
The hoop is only 4.5 feet from the floor.
You should see the look of confidence on
their faces when they make a slam dunk.
Food shopping is a problem for short seniors
or 'bottom feeders' as we call them, because
they can't reach the items on the upper shelves.
There are many foods they've never tasted.
After shopping, most seniors can't remember
where they parked their cars and wander the
parking lot for hours while their food defrosts.
Lastly, it's important to choose a
development with an impressive name.
Italian names are very popular in Florida.
They convey world traveler,
uppity sophistication and wealth.
Where would you rather live?
Murray 's Condos or The Lakes Of Venice?
There's no difference.
They're both owned by Murray, who happens to be a cheapskate.
I hope this material has been of help to you future retirees.
If I can be of any further assistance,
please look me up when you're in Florida.
I live in The Leaning Condos of Pisa on Boynton Beach.

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,
The good, the bad and the ugly is a very apt description of life in Zimbabwe this week. The good has come in the form of the fast approaching rainy season. Temperatures have soared over the last few days and the first rain clouds have started to gather on the horizon.
Heaven in the garden has come from standing under the drooping, dripping mulberry tree and feasting on ripe, sweet purple berries.
Purple fingers, lips and tongue; angry, impatient birds cursing from overhead! A rare treat came for me with the appearance of a carmine bee eater sitting on the electricity lines over my house. Carmines are usually associated with hot lowveld river valleys where they build nests in big colonies, burrowing into sand cliffs and river banks. At first I thought this Carmine Bee-eater must be lost but then I saw another one, and then another two. For a couple of hours they stayed around before swooping high into an invisible current of wind and disappearing. The final treat of the week came with the sound of running feet on the roof just after dark. Not human feet but those of the Night Ape as it headed towards an avocado tree for an early appetizer before starting its nocturnal rounds.

In between the ‘good’ and the bad came the absurd, just to bring us down to earth. First came the story of the four men apprehended by police in Harare. The police forgot to handcuff their captives and then left them unattended in a police car whose engine was running, while they chased after another suspect. The four suspects put the car in gear and drove away, chased by the Police in a second car which proceeded to run out of fuel before the men could be re-arrested. The Herald newspaper described the escape as “the conclusion of an otherwise highly-successful police operation.”

Second came the report that Air Zimbabwe, teetering on the edge of bankruptcy, had just received yet another emergency cash injection from the government. The 2.8 million US dollar bail out had finally managed to break the airline’s two month long strike. On one of their first resumed flights, from Victoria Falls to Harare, there was only one passenger on board an aircraft which seats 60 people. Talk about a good way to make a return on government money!

The ‘bad’ this week came with the interception by riot police of women in Bulawayo marching to commemorate the International Day of Peace. The women were singing songs about national healing and handing out flowers and leaflets when an estimated 50 riot police moved in on them. Eyewitnesses described riot police chasing and beating the unarmed protestors with baton sticks causing a number of injuries and many being taken to hospital. Twelve of the women were arrested, including WOZA leaders Jenni Williams and Magodonga Mahlangu.

The downright ‘ugly’ this week came with more reports of Zanu PF youths taking over council properties, car parks, markets, bus and taxi ranks in Harare where they are intimidating people, extorting bribes and using violence against people who report them to the police. Unbelievably the co Home Affairs Minister, Theresa Makone, whose ministry is in charge of the Police, was quoted in the press as saying there was chaos. She said: there is nothing I can do to stop their invasions.”

This is hardly the picture of law and order that Zimbabwe so desperately needs in the turbulent months leading to another election and hardly the image to attract tourists and investors.

Until next week, thanks for reading,

The Recipes

As mentioned in the introduction, herewith the firs four Sunday dinner menus from a century ago:

Transcriber's Note: Please note that this book was published decades ago and nutritional opinion has changed in some ways. In particular, people are now generally advised not to eat raw eggs. Please use caution when following these recipes.

Here is the introduction to the book and also something about cottolene:

(Or just skip the intro and scroll down to the recipes)


TO the modern wide-awake, twentieth-century woman efficiency in household matters is quite as much a problem as efficiency in business is to the captains of industry.

How to make pure food, better food and to economize on the cost of same is just now taxing the attention and ingenuity of domestic science teachers and food experts generally. The average housewife is intensely interested in the result of these findings, and must keep in touch with
them to keep up with the times and run her home in an intelligent and economical as well as healthful routine.

The eternal feminine question is, "What shall we have for dinner to-day?" It is not always the easiest thing in the world to think of a seasonable menu, nor to determine just the right combination that will furnish a meal appetizing and well-balanced in food values. Furthermore,
both the expense and the amount of work entailed in preparation must be considered.

This Cook Book is especially designed to meet just that pressing daily need of the housewife. It presents for her guidance a menu for every Sunday dinner in the year; it suggests dishes which are seasonable as well as practical; it tells in a simple, intelligent manner just how these dishes can be made in the most wholesome and economical form; and the recipes have all been especially made for this book and tested by that eminent expert, Mrs. Elizabeth O. Hiller.

The title of "52 Sunday Dinners" has been given the book because Sunday dinners as a rule are a little more elaborate than the other dinners of the week, but from these menus may be gleaned helpful hints for daily use.

While climatic conditions differ somewhat in various sections of the country, we have tried to approximate the general average, so that the suggestions might be as valuable to the housewife in New England as to the housewife in the West or South, or vice versa.

Simplicity, economy and wholesomeness have been given preferred attention in the preparation of these recipes, many of which are here presented for the first time.

In the interest of health and economy a number of the recipes suggest the use of Cottolene--a frying and shortening medium of unquestioned purity--in place of butter or lard. Cottolene is a vegetable shortening,
pure in source and manufactured amid cleanly favorable surroundings. It is no new, untried experiment, having been used by domestic science experts and thousands of housewives for nearly twenty years; to them Cottolene for shortening and frying is "equal to butter at half the
price, better and more healthful than lard--and more economical than either." We, therefore, offer no apologies for the small proportion of recipes specifying the use of Cottolene, and suggest that a trial will convince any housewife that Cottolene makes better food than either butter or lard, and is preferable from the standpoints of efficiency, economy and healthfulness.

We commend this book to your critical inspection and test, believing you will find it convenient, helpful, unique and pointing the way to better and more economical living.


For All Shortening and Frying Use COTTOLENE

YEARS ago nothing but butter or lard were used for shortening and frying; to-day the visible supply of these two products is insufficient to supply the demand, taking into consideration the amount of butter required for table use. Furthermore, as the demand increased it outgrew
the supply of butter and lard, with the result that prices were materially advanced; and, incidentally, the quality has been lowered.
Naturally, under such conditions scores of substitutes have been offered as shortening and frying mediums--some meritorious, but mostly inferior.

Cottolene is not offered the housewife as a cheap imitation of either butter or lard, but as a vegetable product which is superior to either for cooking purposes. Because it happens to be about half the price of butter, or less, is but an additional reason, from a purely economical standpoint, for its use. The main argument for the use of Cottolene is the purity of its ingredients and the wholesomeness of the food prepared with it.

There isn't an ounce of hog fat in Cottolene, and from cottonfield to kitchen human hands never touch the product. It is pure and absolutely free from taint or contamination from source to consumer. Packed in our patent, air-tight tin pails, Cottolene reaches you as fresh as the day
it was made. Lard and butter are sold in bulk, and do not have this protection.

Cottolene is always uniform in quality, and because of its freedom from moisture it goes one-third farther than butter or lard, both of which contain about 20% of water. It is much more economical than lard; about 50% more so than butter.

Cottolene contains no salt, and is richer in shortening properties than either butter or lard. Two-thirds of a pound of Cottolene will give better results than a pound of either butter or lard.

Because Cottolene is made from sweet and pure oils, refined by our own special process, it makes food more digestible. Its use insures light, flaky pie-crust; it makes deliciously crisp, tender doughnuts; for cake-making it creams up beautifully and gives results equal to the best
cooking butter; muffins, fritters, shortcake and all other pastry are best when made with Cottolene; it makes food light and rich, but never greasy. Cottolene heats to a higher temperature than butter or lard, and cooks so quickly the fat has no chance to soak in.

You can fry fish in Cottolene and use the remaining fat for frying potatoes or other food. The odor of fish will not be imparted to the other food fried in the fat. Cottolene is just as pure and healthful as olive oil, and is unqualifiedly recommended by leading physicians, domestic science authorities and culinary experts as wholesome, digestible and economical. The use of Cottolene in your frying and shortening will both save you money and give you better results.


The General Care of Cottolene

Exercise the same care and judgment with Cottolene as you would with butter, lard or olive oil; keep it in a moderately cool place when not in use, just as you would butter--so that its best qualities may be preserved.

Moreover, just because you occasionally buy strong butter or rancid lard which your grocer has kept in too warm a place, you do not denounce all butter or lard and give up their use; neither would it be fair to condemn Cottolene simply because your grocer may not have kept it properly. No fat will keep sweet indefinitely without proper care.

The Use of Cottolene for Shortening

Of course, the recipes in this book indicate the exact amount of Cottolene to be used. In your other recipes, however, a general, _and important_, rule for the use of Cottolene is:
=Use one-third less Cottolene than the amount of butter or lard given in your recipe.=

For cake-baking, cream the Cottolene as you would butter, adding a little salt; _Cottolene contains no salt_. For other pastry handle exactly the same as directed for either butter or lard, using one-third less.

The Use of Cottolene in Frying

In _sauteing_, _browning_ or "_shallow frying_" (as it is sometimes called) use only enough Cottolene to grease the pan. The Cottolene should be put into the pan _while cold_ and, after the bottom of the pan is once covered with the melted Cottolene, more can be added as desired.
Add more fat when you turn the food.

Cottolene can be heated to a much higher temperature without burning than either butter or lard, but--unless allowed to heat gradually--the Cottolene may burn and throw out an odor, just as would any other cooking-fat.

For _deep frying_, have Cottolene at least deep enough to cover, or float, the article being fried, heating slowly. For uncooked mixtures, such as doughnuts, fritters, etc., test with one-inch cubes of stale bread. The cubes of bread should brown a golden brown in one minute; or test with a bit of dough, which should rise at once to the top with some sputtering. Make this test always,--never trust your eye. The fat should be kept at an even temperature. For cooked mixtures, such as croquettes, fish balls, etc., the cube of bread should brown a golden brown in 40 seconds.

Uncooked fish and meat are better when covered with bread crumbs, to keep the crisp crust desired in frying food . The fat should be hot at first, that it may not penetrate; then reduce the heat, that the food may cook till done, without burning.

Crumbed food is usually arranged in a croquette basket before placing it in the hot fat. This prevents the food from moving about, which sometimes causes the crust to loosen from the food, allowing it to absorb the fat.

Never let the fat heat to smoking point, for then it is burning hot, and the food will burn on the outside while the inside remains raw and uncooked. Cook only three or four pieces at once, for more will chill the fat and prevent perfect frying.

After the food has been cooked by this frying method it should be carefully removed at once from the fat and drained on brown paper.

Care of Cottolene After Frying

After the frying is done, the fat should be allowed to stand in a cool place to permit any sediment to settle. When cool, pour the fat carefully through a double fold of cheesecloth, or through a fine strainer. It is then ready for use.

Cottolene does not retain the taste or odor from any article whatever that may be fried in it, and it may be used over and over again. You may from time to time, add fresh Cottolene to it as your quantity diminishes, but the frying qualities of the Cottolene are not affected by the shrinkage of the fat.

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.

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.....

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.
