2010 – The year of…

Every year we say how the “year has just flown.”  But every year it does, even more so than the year prior. I’m still amazed that it is just a few short days to Christmas, and haven’t really given too much thought processing the happenings of 2010. Here’s some of what was significant for me […]

Housemate | Playmate required

Guys and gals, I’m looking for a new roomie for 2011. The playmate from 2010 has had to leave the mansion and I’m taking applications for those looking to stay over from January 2011 for at least the next year. I live in a very secure complex in Dennis Road, Atholl. It’s a huge 3 […]

Who is your business backing as its intellectual venture capital?

The buzz words around the entrepreneurial space are “venture capital” and “private equity”. It’s every startup’s dream to have an investor put funding towards their new idea, or recently launched venture. The money provided sees ideas take flight, the original inventors or entrepreneurs successful, and the PE or VC business making a killing. I’ve been […]

How’s your #Mo bro?

It’s half way through Movember and it’s great to see so many men (and the occasional portuguese woman) taking part in this fund raising initiative. Sometimes a bit of growth on the upper lip makes all the difference. Cant say I’ve seen things too differently though. I have just noticed when I smile at young […]

Velociraptors!

When I was five years old, dinosaurs were my life. I’d spend every afternoon in the marshy part of our garden playing with the little toy beasties that my mom had so kindly bought for me. It was epic. I got to know them all so well that once a competitive friend of my dad […]

Jacarandas in Joziwood

Anyone from Johannesburg knows that at the end of October, if a Jacaranda blossom doesn’t fall on your head, you’re out of luck for your exams. That said, I’m far happier running around in the streets headbumping falling petals than studying.  Who’d want to be inside when the Jozi summer is on its way? Here’s […]

If – Rudyard Kipling

An old man shared this poem with me when I was 8 years old.  He said I should learn it off by heart and use it as guiding principles whilst I grow up. I’m still growing, and I still find explanation in it. If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing […]
