Thought for the Day 26 October, 2017

Thought for the Day 26 October 2017 Today, I have been thinking about humor. Over the years I have noticed that the presentation of humor has changed. In the nineteen fifties and sixties slapstick was perhaps the most popular sort and it has survived until today through comics like Jim Carrey. His comedy is very similar to the stuff Jerry Lewis did back in the day. Some of the late night shows of the sixties […]


Flash Fiction 52 – It’s a New Day

Afternoon everybody. I have decided to write a new novel in Flash Fiction installments on my blog. The first installment was called “The end of the Week” and it was published in Flash Fiction Blog Post 49 on 2nd October, 2017. (If you’d like to start collecting the parts of the story.) The working name of this new novel is “Forced Removal”. Please let me know what you think. Today’s second installment is called It’s […]


Thought for the Day 19 October, 2017

Thought for the Day 19 October 2017 I’d like to start my thought for today with a little story called “The three envelopes”. It was told to me when I had become senior enough to become involved in the politics that are all too common in organizations of all sizes beyond one-man-bands. Once upon a time there was a senior manager in an organization. He’d been there for a while and had done pretty well, […]

Thought for the Day 12 October, 2017

Thought for the Day 12 October 2017 I noticed that the Gauteng Infrastructure Development MEC has appealed to national government for assistance with the clean-up following the severe storm that hit the province this week. It would be really nice if our esteemed leaders planned ahead and put in the infrastructure for managing such events instead of complaining about the damage afterwards. We see the same inadequacy in the infrastructure for coping with floods, fires, […]

Thought for the Day 5 October, 2017

Thought for the Day 5 October 2017 Today I have decided to stay on the lighter side of life. But a word of warning. This thought may offend more sensitive readers. So if you don’t like stuff that refers to body parts, I suggest you read something else. Have all of you gone yet? – OK, here’s the thing. I came across an old story from sometime in my dim and distant past that goes […]
