Toy I bring my readers the first Post in a series about Voicess of We teople in South Africa.

 Julius, my Bra, you must realize that Freedom is not all about the ownership of Land.  You annoy and scare People who would back you on the land issue [most of them have no more land than you do anyway] but the major problem in South Africa is not about the Land.

HLB Barnett Chown AAA WWW Alert in Voices from Africa

August 13, 2018

Toy I bring my readers the first Post in a series about Voicess of We teople in South Africa.

 I will run the entire series in Facebook too and ask my readers to be on the lookout for the voice of a young man from Africa; he is far better qualified than I am but I have the background in Finance that he can use.  He is the leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters Party but …

 Julius, my Bra, you must realize that Freedom is not all about the ownership of Land.  You annoy and scare People who would back you on the land issue [most of them have no more land than you do anyway] but the major problem in South Africa is not about the Land.

 s, grab some of the land; some of our ancestors did that, so I don’t see it as an issue, but you have to get down to the knitty gritty of what Economic Freedom is all about.

 It’s in the purse strings that control the Money Supply in the Land and their greedy little paws; just look at the smirky faces; they don’t care.  And they have not changed with the rest of the Country …. Oh well. they have in a way; they are worse now than they were when I first got to know them way back in 1973.  They are bigger too; last count almost 200 partners from their ivory tower plush offices in Bruma Johannesburg to Peter Chown in Scotland.  Just you Google for it, Julius, as I have it on top and see why I call ir the Dilemma that is facing Malema; scuse the pun on the wordplay.

 Malcolm Sheppard, you won’t get away with this.  I want my money back and aim to get it.

Ikepedia on Continents and Countries and on Capitals of the World

July 29, 2018

I owe my readers a Post on Part 10 of my series for the Old Folks of Today and this will set the scene.

 I am not going to Google for it or provide any links for the Post; you go ahead and do so but it is my humble opinion that you should find a Man of Africa to do so.

 Let me just state that Africa is a Continent and that nobody will argue the point regardless of the many arguments on Continents and it is a Big One as far as Continents go.

 Point two: contrary to common thinking, Cape Town is not the shern tip of the continent.  Google for that and compare the location with Cairo in Egypt way up north; yeah Egypt is also on the Continent but you had better not say to an Egyptian that he is an African.  OK?

 Cairo Egypt

Latitude/longitude: 30°03′45″N31°14′58″E Decimal coordinates: 30.0626 31.2497

 L’Agulhas Africa SA is at the southern tip.  In local jargon we call it the place where the water is around your ankles at ebb tide; at high tide, well …. It is not a good idea to be in the water then; it gets over … suffices to say the fish may nibble at things you don’t want fish nibbling.

 Latitude/longitude:34°49′20″S20°01′02″E
Decimal coordinates:-34.8223 20.0173

Altitude: 10 m.

 Cape Town

Latitude/longitude: 33°55′33″S18°25′23″E
Decimal coordinates: -33.9258 18.4232

 Now you Google for South Africa and “The Teeth of The Children” and tell me what you find.  In return I shall try introducing you to a Man of Africa to tell you his story.

 t has not been told yet, never even tried to do so; it is not what you saw in Meryl Streep in her Out of Africa melancholy, Folks, not at all; that was Hollywood; you should know, surely by now everyone should know that Hollywood is on another Planet way out in space.

 Will see you soon.  Google for the Catfish Capital of the World, or in the Universe for that matter, while you are at it and watch this space.  I shall return to introduce you to the Bool Sheet Capital of the World.

Today June 21st 50 year ago in 1968 on my Journey of Life Part One for the Young Folks of today

June 21, 2018

I stood there, and HOW, Boy oh Boy, I did; DONE HIM REAL GOOD and pulled him off.For my regular followers in WordPress, Yeah I did.  Gone and done were the days of innocence; had to face the test.

Would proceed and find myself all over to neet with its demands and find myself at another crossing of the roads exactly the same day and date in 197i; would miss that one at first but later on learn to catch up with him AND DO HIM.

hall now first Post Part 10 for the Old Folks to complete the story on Africa and then pick you up again right here.

A Requiem for the Loved One

June 14, 2018

I found it yesterday, late afternoon, my Brother.  You are the second One to know about it though you guided me in to anchor in our safe harbour.

You were always the Loved One.  Ouboet was the rock; he always was.  We know he had a presence; he was solid as, no much more, than Gibraltar.  He left large footprints in the financial history of our Country; they were cemented in that day in 1995 when he spoke and walked out.

He had to wait and got his reared posthumously in the Cape Town Supreme Court but he won and the Judge ordered them to pay.

That left us; and in the meantime you passed on that fateful day in May of 2010.

I rambled on and nearly missed it but got it now; will need a few days to treasure it but will do.

You were right, my Brother, so right though I almost missed it entirely.

Stay safe where you are Loved One; in just a few days that I still need to get it tight and sure I shall be ready to see you and we shall never part again.  I need to see it through and would like to but it won’t matter much after yesterday.  I did that for you while you held my hand.

Dedicated to my Boetie; there was only one of his kind ever in the World.

You are now safe, Boetie.  Broer will join you and Ouboet  soon and we shall never part again..

4 All Old Folks around the Globe Part 9 about a Fast Forward to the Past in order to get to the Future in Part 10

May 23, 2018

Something that happened a few days ago made me think of an old Saint in South African Politics; in a way it’s the story my old Blogging Buddy Cheech of Iowa once told about the Bishop who was asked to call the Bama a Saint.  Cheech, where RU?  Come in now and share your wisdom with all of us.

Well, it reminded me about old Saint Langenhoven and his story about donkeys.  I ran it in Facebook and it is a must read if you ever want to get to grips with Africa.

 ad it now:

Having had a career in Statistical Analysis I can tell you by reading the Headline of a Facebook Post what numbers of likely comments can be expected.

In this case getting two was a surprise, but I did expect at least one.

Part 10 is in preparation, in which we will get to Africa and I shall mention the name of Julius Malema in that.  Go ahead and Google that name; take some time on it and get yourself acquainted with a future President of South Africa, by the way highly likely to be renamed to become Azania in the not too distant future.

For the information of my regular WordPress readers, I am Part of the Half of FaceBook readers that are not Donkeys.

4 All Old Folks around the Globe Part 8 about the mess the World was in as 1948 ended, and before that the mess we ended with in 1898.

May 20, 2018

Those of you that is old enough to know must speak out and say how to do it if we are ever going to meet the future in 2048 while we remain dead on course back to the past.

Here I sit today; my Vodacom Internet Connection is working smooth as silk, or butter; everything is fine but my Email is dead as a DODO.

I have lived long enough to have experienced the good and the bad; in fact I can handle both because I know the differences.  There is nothing any asshole can throw at me that I cannot handle and I shall do so with this one too.

If it is War they want War is what they will get.

For those living outside of Africa, I suggest you Google the name of a fellow called Julius Malema.  It is not just about the Land; this War is about Money Control.  The land story will be easy, Julius; it is the Money Control that you will have to destroy.

Julius, young Man, I have girthed my loins; my lances and spears have been sharpened and oiled.

Get ready, young lad; my first targets are nou PEP Stores followed by Velocity Trade and then I am going to expose the SA Financial Services Board [the FSB as they got named by the big Forces that are in control and tell the FSB what they must do].

4 All Old Folks around the Globe Part 7 on dates and times on the Journey of Life

May 15, 2018

I have written on Life as a Journey:

https://ikejakson.wordpress.com/2009/09/25/life-is-a-journey/

 on Cycles and Circles on time in History of our Journey:

https://ikejakson.wordpress.com/2009/04/06/cycles-andor-circles-in-the-affairs-of-nations-and-countries/

And last for today, have a final look at:

https://ikejakson.wordpress.com/2016/02/28/things-and-time-get-better-with-age/

So, really, when are we ever old enough to be classified as Old?  When our daughter was in her mid thirties she did not understand that I called that the adolescent period with Adulthood starting at 40 …

On her 39th birthday I wrote:

https://ikejakson.wordpress.com/2013/05/30/a-look-at-age-39-on-the-journey-of-life/

…. and I left it at that but on her 40th birthday I wrote her:

https://ikejakson.wordpress.com/2014/05/30/40-today/

to welcome her to adulthood to which she replied [and her reply told me she had made it and was quite safe then] well, she replied with a “it feels good this side of 40” and peaked early in life after that so that she is now strong, independent, self-reliant, and beautiful at 44.  She is a brick in the BHS though that has virtually collapsed in recent years and, I am sure of it, she will be one of the few that can really help to pull it out of the doldrums.

So, when are we going to be old then, some will ask.  My advice is that you get through your golden years from 50 to 60; at that point you are young and beautiful and all you need is to mature gracefully.

So we come to the end of the line … and I will close this off with that; with just more than two months to get to 78 I look around me and see older folks of 85 and some close to 90 but most of my compatriots have gone ahead and I know of not one who tried to resist their time and neither will I when mine comes around.

I have lived and loved it; most were days of joy but some were sorrows though very few of the latter.

Go well, my friends.

4 All Old Folks around the Globe a short interlude as Part 7 about pumpkins, yams, soil potatoes and corn on the cob before Part 8 and what will follow on that.

May 6, 2018

Sunday, 06 May 2018

I can, and I am sure there are still many other Golden Oldies who remember when we planted and harvested our own food in the backyard.

We had yams year round; the pumpkins were left until the plants were all dead and gone and then we stored the pumpkins on the corrugated iron sheet roof or under the back awnings [pumpkin pie and sweet pumpkin year round, better food than in any Trump Castle or Tower] when the onions were left in the soil until the plants dried out and then hung up under the awning; how good was the corn, eaten raw straight from the stalk when young; enough to get dry to be stored with the onions and the pumpkin under the awning; so hard by then outside that you had to open them with the large meat cleaver, then boil them till soft before Mom would add the dark brown sugar by the cup full.  Oh, I can go on and on.

We never used fertilizers in the garden; all fruit and veggie roots and peels, dry leaves, weeds, and chicken and cow manure did that.  I don’t use any worm or insect sprays in my place or in my outside soil; when I asked my wife to leave my house I chucked all insecticides and sprays out with her.  Yes, I swat flies and mosquitoes inside my dwelling [and I am deadly with a swatter] but I don’t kill them outside the house, nor any garden worms, flies or garden ants outside; some little worms like my sweet potatoes [yams as some call them] but I don’t kill the little worm.  I cut the piece out where he sits and put the piece with the worm back into the soil.

You know what this World will be without worms and cockroaches?  You know what will happen to you without them?  What?  You wanna tell me you don’t like them?  I don’t understand you because they keep my place clean and don’t charge me one penny for doing it for me.

They are the creatures of God in whom I trust.  I am 78 years old any day now; no aches or pains, just the darn eye and that is why I cancelled my Hospital Plan after an ophthalmologist messed up the one because I allowed him to do it because the Hospital Plan paid him to do it.

I believe very little about modern Science; very, very little indeed and I don’t care whether you agree or not.  In God I trust and will do so until I die.

It’s getting later and it is now Sunday night.  The Lord is resting and I am going to bed now; tomorrow is the eighth day and we must get on with that in Part 8.

4 All Old Folks around the Globe Part 6 on Africa Then and Now

April 30, 2018

This is just an Interlude; read Parts One to 5 before you continue with this one.

The World is an old Place; very little is known about the origins and when it came about and I am not going to go into that.  Modern Science and Archaeology are mere speculation about the matter.

All that is documented is from Israel and Egypt; somehow they seem to have been there first and strong bonds still exist between the two countries.

That enables me to draw some sort of a distinction between the Continents of Africa and Europe, but [and a large But, that is], Egypt is there right at the top of the eastern side of Africa and Israel is smack in the middle of what was once referred to as Arabia.  Nobody knows about Russia or China; the so-called West never bothered to find out and these two giants were not ever in the past in the habit of parading around the Globe to announce their virtues.

To me sufficient evidence exist with substantial evidence that the first civilization came about in these four Countries; then Greece followed with the first and to me still the finest, “schools” of philosophy.

Italy remains a mystery; whatever and how they managed to grab control of early Christianity and keep it in Rome remains a mystery.  After all is said and done Italy like all other European countries were inhabited by wandering tribes that kept on the move to whichever place provided shelter and food; when the latter was depleted the migrants moved on, as indeed was the case around the Globe for all we know.

Just one thing remains for this Part.  Somehow the old Italian Monks started making the finest dry White wines in the World; try Est. Est. if you don’t want to take my word for it; on the other hand Portugal found the way to make the best “green wines” from “green grapes” ever and nobody has ever come close to copy their Casal Garcia and Aveleda de Blanca.  Chilli in South America makes some fine ones but the Porra has the secret to it.  I do believe it is because they still in this age chuck the grapes in the old foot vats and the entire family takes part in the ritual; maybe I shall move to Portugal one day.

England at that time; the noble Knights of the Round Table; nobility of any kind?  My foot; they were a barbaric bunch until barely 100 years ago today.  It came as no surprise to me when Old Jomo started ridding Kenya of the curse in 1960.

Part 7 to follow soon; the Continent of Africa deserves a special Part to do it justice.
