2013 in review


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 47,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 17 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Predictions for 2014 and Beyond


Everyone’s name is going to become so so-called confusing to pronounce that John Smith will become an exotic name

People will stop having sex…too many STDs

Online television is really going to take-off when people realize they can cut their expenses by having Internet and then ditching their cable

More people will be looking for love as divorce increases in these economic hard times

People will travel less as they come to realize you can see the streets of Paris on Google Maps

People will stop calling psychics when they realize that you can get pay $200.00 to Hans Decoz on his site and generate multiple numerology reports for anyone you want and as many times as you want if you are ever stuck in a given month, day or year and no one will listen to your worries and you can get some comfort from the basic entertainment Hans Decoz provides. You can generate reports for up to four years! Oh…in advance too! :-). A lot cheaper than calling psychics. Unfortunately…I have some past stupidity with that. Good thing, present wisdom prevails and one thing that is a good general rule to abide by is you do not ever listen to the advice of anyone who does not truly know you on personal matters :-).

Please respond with some of your own predictions. I do moderate this site so nonsense predictions, anything that includes swearing or inappropriate calls for behaviour will not be accepted. You should know right from wrong by now if you can read this site.

Excerpt from Three Quarters


SHAKALAND

Shakaland is beautiful. I really like it. It teaches me a lot about Zulu culture. I buy Benjamin a hat, a stuffed animal for Debbie’s child and some stamps. Also just as I come in, I buy a yellow and black necklace for Daphne. I really hope she likes it. The man Olan who shows us around comes up to me first and introduces himself, and then I introduce him to Daniel. We have a wonderful walk around the village and we even go into a hut where the medicine men are and the diviners. One woman who is an apprentice diviner has her face in white paint. It is a stunning sight. I ask for a divination and the woman with the white face prepares some wood to burn and there are two established diviners, each wearing long hair. I do not even know that one of them is a man until he speaks. The diviners speak as Olan translates that no one has come with bad intentions and they wish us all a safe journey home and say we will all get back home safely. These spirits, these ancestors talking will never know how much they comfort me. Thank you. It is very spiritual, just like my friend Lisa says. I pick up a stone for her in the Zululand village. Later, I tell her that it is for making a wish. Continue reading
