This is my darling cat, Scarlett. He is not a she, ha, ha!

When we went to the animal shelter to adopt a kitten, the worker there told us that he thinks the cat was a she, 'cause he could not see any, well, you know!

We named the cat Scarlett, thinking it was a she only to later discover that it was a he. The cat already got used to his name, so it was too late to change it to a more 'manly' name. ;-)

Heaven or Hell?

I would really like to ask anyone who reads here, to please do yourself a huge favour and read the following books: A Divine Revelation of Hell - Mary Katherine Baxter and Heaven is so Real! - Choo Thomas.

I am sure you will be able to get it from any Christian bookstore.

You will never regret reading it. If you already have, please tell me your thoughts on these books. I read it and believe every word to be true!

The funny side

Here is a little tidbit to make you laugh.

Since the end of last year, the country has been suffering under power cuts. The company that supplies electricity has been having problems with one of their reactors at their nuclear power plant. Till this day we still don't know what caused it, because they have been feeding the media such a bunch of lies.

Now, to save power, we have been undergoing regular intervals of power load shedding in different areas. What really had me in stitches, was when they started telling us via the newspapers the following:" Please turn off the power, so that the power can stay on."

Now, if that does not crack you up, nothing will!!

The police are there to protect you, right?

A while ago there was a big heist at one of our airports, where about R100 million rand was stolen.

The police recovered some of the money and it was locked away in one of their safes. Now someone has stolen it from their safe (about R10 million)! They used an angle grinder and with all that noise, nobody heard them. It is speculated that it was an inside job.

Cash in transit heists are also a very common thing here in South Africa. Hijacking as well.
