A short Interlude

September 26, 2017

I don’t know how long it will be but I have to take a short interlude for my eye.

It is not getting any better though I keep hoping that the deterioration has slowed down and I am taking care to protect what I have and that it doesn’t get worse.

However, I have learned that one must listen when the human body speaks.  I have had a good life; done my bit to live and let live and now face an adversary in Court on Thursday 19th instant.  I need all my wits and powers of observation to clear that hurdle.

Blogging is not all I live for; life has more than that and the Internet is not much more than a convenient tool to me.  It is more often the opposite of that and were it not for the fact that our family ties are now spread around the globe I would live without the Net.

On the other hand it has bestowed on me the joys of meeting a few people that I would not otherwise have met.  I won’t mention names now but a few of us are in regular email contact and they mean a lot to me.  They more than make up for the negative side of the Net that I abhor and despise in human life.

To these few, thank you guys and gals; you are blessings from our Lord God to me and I hope to be that to you one day when you need a shoulder as you have been for me.

For a while therefore my contribution to this Blog will be the minimum that I feel I should do that must be done now.  I remain positive about our Country and will make my contribution to ensure a better life for all whenever or whatever I can contribute to that.  Darn and damn those who cannot see it this way simply because they do not want to see it.

Bless you, all true friends.

Of Vodacom and Orwell 1984 to Animal Farm 2084

September 11, 2017

Much has been said about Big Brother of 1984 but the People never understood and still don’t because the Machine took over.

The People were given cell phones thus creating the massive fences surrounding the cities where all the People were herded in.  Big Brother said “OK, now you all have cell phones and should be happy.”

So, all the Animal species were set free; they graze and flourish, moving freely but gaze in wonder at these strange creatures behind the barbed wire fences.  There is no escape.

Vodacom got what they wanted; all animal life got their freedom to roam and multiply and the People have cell phones.

The Machine is in charge.  To understand this, read Steinbeck in Grapes of Wrath and follow that up with The Winter of our Discontent.

Thus we will get to 2084; life is great and everyone will have the choice of two cell phones for the parents; all the kiddies will have tablets and unlimited access to Cyber Space.

Reality?  What the heck do you want to talk about reality?  Virtual reality is so much easier; you have no responsibility and you do not have to think; the Machine does all the thinking for you.

Life has never been as good; why, oh me why did we wait so long to get here?

Hey, stop asking questions about poverty!  There will be no poor; press the cellphone button and the machine will bring you all the food you can eat.  Just think about what is going to be in the cinema tonight; press the button and you will have it.

We will all be equal and FREE AT LAST, courtesy of the Machine.

The Power of One

September 8, 2017

What would happen if someone steals the Atlantic Ocean tonight and we find it’s all gone when we wake up in the morning?

By mid morning the rot has set in on the West Coast of Southern Africa and will reach Maine in the USA by evening.

What will it look like in a week?

Impossible you say; it cannot happen others will laugh at you.

Well let me tell you, the Vodacom accounts or billing clerks think they can do it and get away with it.

I AM GOING TO STOP THEM!
