State Of the Nation Address – My Thoughts

You can either agree or disagree, but last night was a complete disgrace.

Fact is – We need a new #President ….. “Een met n bek” … en nie een wat speech writers het nie! ….. Our country needs order …. Our country needs a strong president to deal with all these strong personalities in government. Looking Past all these issues… ‪#‎Zuma‬ You have to go ,,,‪#‎MyOpinion_Hate_it_Or_Love_it‬

He laughed about what had happened in parliament and did not mention anything about the happenings.

Nelson Mandela – We Thank You !!!

25 years ago today, Nelson Mandela was released from Victor Verster Prison in the Western Cape and made his way to City Hall in Cape Town to deliver his iconic speech from the balcony of the building.

Today marks the 25-year anniversary of Mandela’s release from prison. He was imprisoned for 27 years.

Quote for the day :Difficulties break some men but make others. No axe is sharp enough to cut the soul of a sinner who keeps on trying, one armed with the hope that he will rise even in the end.

WCCO | CBS Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — We know two bad things about candy for sure: it’s basically sugar, which causes tooth decay, and its empty calories can lead to obesity.

But really, how bad is it for kids to chow down on their bounty of Halloween candy?

Deb Sheats is the director of the dietetic program at St. Catherine’s University.

“It’s certainly not sitting down and eating all of that at once, but portioning it out,” Sheats said. “Parents can help kids with that. They get one piece of candy a day. You rule with an iron fist. Don’t tell them that isn’t normal. It’s not normal.”

According to the National Confectioners Association, 41 percent of parents say they limit the candy to “a couple of pieces a day” until it runs out.

Twenty-four percent keep complete control, and 13 percent allow a certain number of pieces and take the rest away.
