Morning all and its day 9, almost on double figures so lets think positive.

Saturday normally a big sporting day, we have or had racing from Australia so could be a long day.

A song from the playlist is when i was a mod, lambretta and all, join along to get us upbeat for the weekend.

It is bucketing down in the East Rand. Hats off to my newspaper delivery chap. He hasnt missed a day. My wife packed a hamper for him and he was over the moon. Brought tears to my eyes.

My birthday song is Sin(Its No Sin) by Eddy Howard and his Orchestra. its about a guy whose loved one left him. Not so in my case. The wife and I have been together for 47 years. Thanks Bob for the reference to the site. It is fun.

A big Shout ( thanks Dave) to the Clan and their loved ones in these trying times.

Great post - thanks Kitkat B)

Just a thought on the lock-down - I (like many) expect this to continue beyond the 21 days - but hopefully 'they' will fine-tune the restrictions - the wife went out to the local SPAR to replenish some 'essentials'; could buy some insect repellent for house -hold use - and some stuff for the pool (which looks like a swamp with all the rain) - but nothing for the garden (which resembles a jungle) - how stupid is that :angry: Surely if one goes to a specific shop, it makes no sense to have certain items in the shop fenced off (ok alcohol debatable) - but stuff like clothes, braai utensils etc etc ..... Really ?

Just my point of view regarding this highly unusual time. Has the world response not been significantly blown out of proportion? With the latest fatality rate calculated at 0.66 percent, in places like RSA where over a 100 people are killed every single day due to crime and road accidents, where is the sense in destroying the economy and countless small businesses and jobs?

Why not just focus all resources on the vulnerable, ie the aged and sickly?

And let everyone else return to the business of earning a living.

This all seems very drastic and short sighted, in my opinion.

Sit comfortably and feel calm.You should be able to complete all 3 tests within 30 seconds or even less.


1. Find the letter C from below. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO



2. If you have already found the letter C, now find the digit 6 from below. 999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999969999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999



3. Now find the letter N from below. It's a little more difficult. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM





If you are able to pass these 3 tests, you can cancel your annual visit to your neurologist. Your brain is great and you're far from having Alzheimer Disease. Congratulations !!! If you need to re look, that may be an early sign of an aging brain....... And its not a joke. . . . . . There is C, 6, and N in those crowdy lines. Keep healthy and a wishing you all a bright day ahead...🌝🌝🌝 Please take this test. You'll be surprised how many won't be able to find it even after multiple attempts

Well I saw my 1st human bean in what the 9th day. So I get this call from a friend wanting to know if I can give him any Rizla paper. I said sure and I asked him what he had to give me. He said two pies and mince meat. I said great and we made the trade. Haha haha
