What Women’s Month means to me [a man!]

August is Women's Month. Typically those would be words that usher in some kind of celebration. But as a man, i cannot celebrate Women's Month. Because we have let woman down! And we continue to every single day. There is a war against women. In South Africa, and around the world. A War against Women Many men would very likely rubbish that statement because they are just so completely oblivious. But like being unaware of [...]

Don’t you wish your boyfriend was woke like me?

i really don't like the term 'Woke'.  For a number of reasons. But the main one being that it describes an event that has happened. Before i was not 'woke' and then this thing happened and now i am 'woke'. Much like the movie 'The Matrix' where Neo choosing a pill determines his level of wokeness for the rest of his life. The truth that i am discovering every day, is that there is [...]

What does Jesus have to do with Justice?

They don't like swearing in the church! Well, not in a lot of churches in i know. And i'm not talking about the 'F' word either. i am talking about the 'S' word. Saying that can get you into a LOT of trouble. That's right, while 'Fund-raising' is a perfectly acceptable - some might say 'Holy' - term, and can happen through a variety of methods such as tithes and offerings or even a [...]

Amplify your voice with regards to the homeless…

Cape Town friends, and further afield [cos this is a time for us to stand together in solidarity] If you are reading this post, you likely started out by reading this one and if not maybe give it a quick look. Let me add right now that there are some conflicting reports going around and a very good friend of mine went in to visit with a delegation and produced a Live video afterwards [...]

The Marcel’s you want to physical-distance with: Peanut Butter!

Peanut Butter in your frozen yoghurt? They wowed us with their rainbow Unicorn flavour and then made us double-take with their charcoal-infused black frozen yoghurt, but Marcel's is back for more. Being connected to Marcel's by virtue of being a blogger meant that i was invited to try out their new peanut butter flavour that is on offer for the next few days, and it was worth the trip! This one can stay! [...]

The power of a network to flip a country on its head

This past week has been tough. Sitting with a R40 000 bill over our heads [alongside the more manageable R12000 to fix our car] for driving into a BMW is not to be found on the list of 'Ten Ways to De-Stress your life'. But, we are surrounded by people who know and love us and there is no way conceivable to us that tbV [the beautiful Val] and i are going to find ourselves [...]

Married People Tips #31-35

Some more marriage advice for you as we head into our final ten: Marriage Tip #31 Walk. Now i imagine there will be varying degrees of this for different people. i also imagine some couples will roll their eyes and instantly dismiss this because walking (and that's not your vibe). But i would suggest (with less exceptions than people who think they are the exceptions) that the amount you collectively enjoy walking or not should [...]
