Community Service Pros and Cons

My experience with Community Service, the good, the bad and the ugly. In 2012 with somewhat of a struggle I managed to join the local CPF in my town. It started off quite well with neighborhood patrols. It really felt that we could make a difference in our area’s. But as time went by I started to get sucked into the drama and politics of the organization.

I have been living with gout for about 20 odd years and seem to have it under control. Here is my Natural Treating Gout recipe. Hope it can help others suffering from this painful condition.

In a previous post I mentioned that I was on Puricos for a while but it had a negative effect on my body. So I had to find alternative methods to treat the condition. We all know it is a result of high Uric Acid in your body that causes crystals to form in your joints.

Broken down car – how embarrassing

This is a short piece on our Broken down car and the embarrassment it caused my wife and I.

We got invited to an Aunt of my wife’s 80th birthday here in Benoni. We were very excited as we had not seen the family in excess of 25 years.

We arrived at the party and parked our old Polo close to the house and really enjoyed the afternoon. It was great meeting the folks again and all the new additions to their family. A really great time we had!
