Going Blind Getting Old and going Home

April 16, 2017

This story may be a long one by the time I am trough with it but the Idea behind it and the scope of the overall Vision [yes, that would be the relevant description now] hit me in one single flash, much like a bolt of lightning that rips the skies but lasts only seconds, though the one in the mind covers the entire life of one person and stretches over all eternity of life past and still to be.

I will record more of it in WordPress for posterity so this is merely the gist of it, and I a looking for thoughts, comments, criticism and other viewpoints.

The bolt of lightning made me realize how blind and insensitive I had been when I had two good eyes to the plight of those with infirmities for whom public awareness started to erect walking ramps on corner street pavements and entrances into public buildings.

I am at present bumping heads with a petty witch practicing as an attorney to a crooked business man and was surprised that she started using it as a weapon against me when I informed her of my eye impediment.  I have always had little patience with vicious people and, giving her a quick measure went for her jugular; must add I was very rude to her and knew that I was risking a lot but I ripped into her in a Court Document.

She complained like a stuffed pig but I was pleased to notice that Magistrate didn’t say a word about it in his judgement and ignored her as if she wasn’t there.

Just yesterday I was about to pass an old guy with a walking stick in the street when I realized something had changed in me and I slowed down to get into step with him.   At the next street crossing I realized he was watching my feet as well as his and that he smiled.

I knew he understood and for a moment I was flooded with emotion.

Just for the record.  I was born in Small Town South Africa in 1940; went to work in Cape Town 1959 to 1965; transferred to Johannesburg 1965; ended up in Centurion [then a separate city to Pretoria] in 1971 and retired from there in 2001 to Small Town South Africa where I settled in the vicinity of a small Dorp called Piketberg in the area of my birth end of 2002 about 160 miles North of Cape Town.

Piketberg turned out to be one big fuck-up and probably he “kakste” town in the land, the Horse Poo Capital of the World, and I have just decided to get out as soon as I can settle all my things and move back to Centurion by latest early next year.

Small Town South Africa of our childhood days has gone; it is no more.

Watch this Space.  There is a surprise reason for it somewhere and I am grappling with the facts to pin it down.

Of Time and a World view by a good American

March 24, 2017

From a Facebook Post by my ole email, Jim in Iowa.

 Verbatim, no editing.

 “Last month, a world-wide telephone survey was conducted by the U.N.

The only question asked was: “Would you please give your honest opinion about possible solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?”

The survey was a complete failure because:

In Eastern Europe they didn’t know what “honest” meant.

In Western Europe they didn’t know what “shortage” meant.

In Africa they didn’t know what “food” meant.

In China they didn’t know what “opinion” meant.

In the Middle East they didn’t know what “solution” meant.

In South America and Russia they didn’t know what “please” meant.

In the USA they didn’t know what “the rest of the world” meant.

And in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Britain everyone hung up as soon as they heard the Indian accent.”

 Do allow me just a small point on Africa, ole Friend, seing you admit the truth about America.  We have more than 50 countries in Africa, with a combined population of over 1.2 billion.  They don’t agree on anything.

 We get on well with Russia [you lost out on that one]; we buy Chinese pick-up trucks at half the price of a Ford and the Korean Kia has just about taken over the luxury SUV class.  A Kia owner wouldn’t take a second look at a Jeep Cherokee.  You lost out badly on that one.

 Thanks however, you made my day.

IT’S NOT ‘FREE’ IF I AM PAYING FOR IT, POEPOL!

February 4, 2017

WTF?! What the Food?!

I’ve stripped my moer for these blooming students now!

Hear ye! Hear ye! This is the most important paragraph of this whole piece:

The Government does not have any money! Not a single cent. It gets all its money from taxpayers! So when you are asking the ‘government’ for ‘Free’ education, you are asking ME, the taxpayer to pay for it. FREE education is as ‘free’ as Nkandla was ‘free.’ It’s not FREE if I am paying for it, poepol!

And if you are going to ask me to pay for your education, ask bloody nicely. The least you can do is stop breaking things, burning things and have a bad attitude about it. But what you cannot do is DEMAND. It is my money. It is your parents’ money. Your friends’. Your family’s. The government is already stealing my money in the form of tax, so I am not…

The three Great Presidents of the World must meet

February 2, 2017

I ran the first part of this as an Open Note in Face Book just a few days back:

 “Can an Old Sefriken Guy call for a meeting between the three Great Presidents of the World, names in alphabetical order, Jinping, Putin and Trump?

Yes, it is my view that they should meet as soon as possible.

Preferable they should do so on neutral ground, like say, Iceland where two others previously met.

They should meet as full equals and all arrive with their spouses First Ladies and hands of friendship extended. There should be no conditions, demands or threats, just sitting down over a few drinks and become friends.

I reckon that is what the World needs today.”

 It received some attention but not nearly the serious discussions I had hoped for.  Perhaps I was vain.

 But this is a first for the entire World, having three Adult Men as Presidents in the three largest Independent Sovereign States in the World.

 We are moving through a phase of transition in the ever moving Cycles and Circles of History and World Events.  The present Cycle could be crucial to guide us for what must come if we don’t adjust to the Times.

 We simply have to get these Men together to form a Team.  I have high hopes and will return with some thoughts from the position at the Southern tip of Africa where I sit as a Sefriken.

A very last word on the subject mentioned in my Post just before this one

January 19, 2017

It is now just past midnight on the African Continent.  Western Australia beats us and their new day is already a few hours into it.  China has reached it and it is now spreading over Russia.  In six hours the day will dawn over the east coast of America.

 In the Post before this one I said that it would be short.  So here it is.

 Go get busy World; there is a lot to be done.  We have all waited eight long years for this day but I am pleased that it has arrived without permanent damage to World Structures for peace amongst nations.

 The Bama era has ended.  He is gone.

 Let us all get on with our lives now.  He is gone.

 I shall not get involved in any discussion or reference to the man creature after this.

Will the Bama pardon Hillary Clinton?

January 19, 2017

Much has been said and speculated about the mysterious mind of the Bama; his capacity to surprise enemy, friend and foe has no limit.

 Most democrats will obviously hope that he will do what little Illary needs to save her neck.

 This is my penultimate reference of all time about the Bama.  In just more than thirty hours from now I shall make my final and last reference to the man and thereafter remain mum about him for as long as I live.

 So, will the Sacred One pardon Illary?

 My view is that he may just decide to let her stew in her own brew.

 Footnote: it may be that I have just been barred from access to my own Facebook Page.  Google has done it but I accept that I have a very low view of IT in general and may walk out into the sunset after this.

Donald Trump on Letter From Vladimir Putin: ‘His Thoughts Are So Correct’ — Politics – TIME

December 23, 2016

President-elect Donald Trump on Friday released a letter he received from Vladimir Putin and praised the Russian president by saying “his thoughts are so correct.” “A very nice letter from Vladimir Putin; his thoughts are so correct,” Trump said in a statement, along with the letter, which is dated Dec. 15. “I hope both sides…

Yesterday was an eventful day

December 23, 2016

I was hovering around between 1959 when I was a young lad who wanted to go places and the first IBM computer was installed in South Africa [long before Windows and IT]; then found myself on a cloud above Animal Farm passing over 1984, when I suddenly landed in the middle of modern IT with a well meaning young lady but she spoke in the strange new language that only they understand but which clearly illustrates that she doesn’t understand the business English which I grew up with.

 When she “revoked” a previous computer “advice” I had to invoke the name of the Chairman.  Hell, I know the guy well enough and he is my junior by 6 years.  He is the Chairman because he founded the Company of which one son is now the CEO and the other one COO, founded it in 1998 I should add; they are a big listed group today, one of the success stories of recent years in our Country.  When I thus invoked the name of the Chairman an ear deafening silence thundered through the skies above IT Land.

 When I aspired for greatness in 1960 we had no Managing Directors in big Finance Houses.  The top dog was General Manager and he was generally 55 or 60 years old with 30 to 40 years of solid experience.  Just after 1990 they all installed the Internet and 40 year old guys took over as Managing Directors.

 I had to look something up on the Internet and that made it necessary for me to check on one of the last lot I mentioned above.  He was “the boitjie” at hhmm … OK lemme call it Company A in 1990 and he would not have liked it if I called them Company B then, but he is long gone now, so is his successor … shucks, at Google I could not find any trace of where he is today neither any mention of the two successors after them.  Oh yeah, almost forgot; this Company was an old well-known name that listed on the JSE in 1990 with some others to make “all the botjies” Managing Directors.  You should Google for these things to understand this Post and you will laugh your heads off at some of these names.  They are the forgotten men of Yesterday in Time.  The big listed companies of previous times [the Anglo’s, De Beers, Rembrandt’s, quite a few] are still there and going strong but not from our shores; they have moved off to London and other places.  The ones of the 1990 “big boitjies” are empty shells.  They will deny it, … OK by me.

 Now the 1998 Company is leading the charge for South Africa?

 With a well meaning young lady who speak in tongues?

 For how long?

 Shane, and all the guys I tagged, I still dabble in a few shares; not enough to make me broke or rich, but the Torah does advise you to split your assets in three: one third in property another third in your own business and the balance in cash and/or shares in other businesses.

 So, I shall need to cut this short now.  I have a few rand in shares; currently in ACL.  Remember and save what I tell you now.  The clever economists and everyone right up to the Chair at SARB will tell you to invest for LONG TERM, meaning minimum 10 years.  Five to ten years are Medium Term; any term under 5 is Short and you must not do Short they tell you.

 That’s called IT!

 I say that’s BULL or DIT, to suit them with your money.

 The Truth is that currently Short Term is 2 days, from 3 to 5 days is Medium Term, and anything over 5 days is Long Term, the latter much too long for me because I go for Short Term, whenever I can just for a Day.  If you study the JSE volumes it is as clear as daylight in December that they all do it with your money and thus enrich them at your expense.

 Finally record this fact [you can verify it any time ad infinitum as long as the Internet stands that yesterday one person blocked the ACL share price for the second day in a row at 1149 cents with only 71 shares remaining at close of day and they will probably go at openers tomorrow Friday, December 23, 2016.

 IT is short for Information Technology, they say.

 I say that is BULL.

 There is a D in front that they don’t tell but that is the Truth.

 D stands Dis

 Thus DIT stands Disinformation Technology.  Or you should really and it would be wise to add a second D in front thus getting DDIT for:

 Deliberate Disinformation Technology

 That is at the Media stands for and that I why the World is in the mess it is Today.

Only Thirty more Days and Nights

December 21, 2016

Morning of this day Wednesday, 21 December 2016 has already broken over some parts in the Western Hemisphere and count down has started.  In just a few hours from this moment the entire Globe will be counting.

 After 8 long years we will count the last 30 days and thirty nights of the Bama and his pathetic family in the White House in Washington USA.

 The freak of a Man he is he has always wanted immortality but that even escaped his Role Model and the Icon of his dreams one named Nelson Mandela, whom every idiot in the World 20 years ago thought would make it but did not and vanished into obscurity in a mere three years.

 Bama and your ilk, in the name of God, GO!  The World with only a few exceptions bids you Farewell.

Merry Christmas 2016

December 18, 2016

Just 7 Suns from today will get us to Xmas morning 2016 and I shall start early this year because it will be my seventh one of Grace.  I hope for many more and my personal medical attendant says he cannot find any reason why I should not reach the ton; on my side I don’t want to rob anyone else going for it and thus as a human who has had his fair share:

Merry Christmas to all of you who contributed to another one for me and my cousin and Uncle Oom Wennie in my absence from Facebook.

Thank you Folks.  We have family in Oz, Paraguay, Netherlands, Ye olde country England, and quite a number with Uncle Sam.  Thank you all.

Let us remember the good things and the Blessings of our Lord God and Creator during 2016.

The year 2017 will be another year to deal with; for now it can wait.  I love you and yours for 2016.  Enjoy.

Merry Christmas 2016.
