Bonjour Monsieur Brel – beautiful, haunting and inspiring

Jaques Brel Alive and Living in Paris was a soundtrack to my childhood.  Even as a small child the passion of the music left an indelible spiritual imprint.  I almost forgot the music, you never hear his songs on the radio.  I didn’t know that Seasons in the Sun was based on his Le Moribond (The dying man).  The original ...

BOKSBURG WARD 32 WARD COMMITTEE ELECTION DISRUPTED BY ANC

I have needed a few days to allow red hot emotions to subside before writing about the aborted ward committee elections which were meant to take place last Saturday.  Instead of elections proceeding in the expected democratic manner, ANC members reduced the ...

I made a mistake supporting Gudwulfs ROC / Projects / Pit Bull Rescue

We all make mistakes, but there are mistakes and there are monumental blunders.  In the instance of supporting, endorsing and promoting Dani Cappri (real name Daniel Boylan) of Gudwulfs ROC I took folly to previously unexplored depths.  Recently seeing the disturbing pictures of conditions where his ‘rescued’ canines were kept turned my stomach as did allegations of a dog’s throat ...
