Homemade Chicken Curry

This past Saturday was Chicken Curry time again. Flavorful and Mild is the name of the game due to the wife not enjoying the burn.

All my recipes are kept simple with not too many ingredients. We like to taste the different flavors without too many spices. Fresh Garlic is an ingredient that adds flavor to many dishes, I just don’t enjoy the taste any longer for some reason. Rather use spices containing garlic.

Crime in Benoni South Africa

The crime situation in our lovely country is now completely out of control. Just where you turn there are stories of break ins, Hijackings, shootings and murder.

Crime

The authorities claim its under control and not as bad as it seems, but who they trying to kid. I have been staying in the same area in Benoni in excess of 50 years and have seen the area degrade and crime take over.

Just this morning, in a crime info group run by Top Security there was a report of an armed robbery in Farrarmere. The resident was apparently shot in the process. Maybe, just maybe there will be some mention of this in the local newspaper.

Stress The Silent Killer Affecting Our Lives

Stress – the silent killer, is something I experienced in my own life a few years ago. We were going through a really tough time financially and it was taking its toll. My wife and I were walking around in the Lakeside Mall when the strangest feeling came over me.

Stress – First Panic Attack

I started sweating profusely, my heart rate sped up and I felt like a trapped animal in the mall and honestly thought I was going to go crazy. Luckily it went away when I stepped outside to get some air. I do understand that it was a panic attack that I experienced caused by the stress.

Moringa Oleifera Natures Best Cure

In a previous post I spoke about using Natures Best Moringa to ease gout. This was suggested by an old colleague from my South African Air Force Days.

Moringa Capsules

I started using the Moringa Capsules in June, just after my birthday. Obviously I ate all the wrong foods which sent the Uric Acid levels in my body sky high. It took about two weeks for the gout to ease and eventually disappear. I also mentioned that the pain in my shoulders that had been around for years had diminished and eventually – gone.

Gout resulting from high Uric Acid levels

For about the last 20 years I have been suffering from quite acute gout. The pain would always attack in both ankles or feet. The gout had affected both my shoulders over the last five years as well. My shoulders were constantly stiff and sore which really impacted on my life.

Update! read more about Moringa and what else it has done in my life

What is Gout?

It seems gout is a type of arthritis caused by high uric acid in your body which causes crystals to form in the joints. The joints become red, inflamed and painful. I do believe that only a person that has suffered a gout attack will know how painful it is.
