Welcome to my Website!

My name is Henry Norval born, bred and growing old in Farrarmere, Benoni, South Africa. In the 53 years I have seen Benoni grow into a beautiful town with the lakes, Plaza and neat CBD and then seen the CBD turn into what can be termed a dump! More info on Benoni in the main menu.

After school I joined the South African Airforce on a permanent basis and after qualifying as an electrical aircraft technician I was lucky enough to land at 3 Squadron, Waterkloof. The squadron consisted of the beautiful Mirage F1CZ. The Mirages where in operation from 1975 to 1992. The F1CZ and F1AZ can still be viewed at the SAAF museum in Swartkops AFB.

Some years ago I became interested in our family trees, mainly Botes on my Moms side and Norval on my Dads side. It has been frustrating and fun at the same time to gather the information. All the info I have gathered can be seen on my Genealogy site. At the rate it is going it seems that it will be a project that will never come to an end. There is always something to learn about the forefathers, some good and some rather shocking but we will leave that there LOL.

Website building or developing has become a hobby of mine over the last few years and that has been rather enjoyable. If you would like to find out more about owning your own small business website or personal blog contact me at henry@norval.co.za. Owning your own site is not that unaffordable. I have negotiated good pricing with JNS Technologies for the hosting of websites making it easier and cheaper to obtain.

Please take a moment to visit my blog where I share my thoughts on various topics and my rants and raves. It has become a place where I can vent my frustrations or just share things that touch me closely.

If you would like to place an ad on my website, whether for a small business or just something you would like to share, contact me and I will set it up.
