T28 and counting …Dying for Medicine

LoadshEDding has become a daily occurrence. Look at the picture and spot the old and the new – no lights, no TV, headlight, smartphone, transistor radio, marking, sleeping, communicating, etc etc. I’m lights out!

Port Elizabeth has been in the news for all the wrong reasons – murders, rapes, mayors, embezzlement of funds, etc etc.

People are crying out for medicine, others are wanting medicine for purposes of euthenasia or weed for pain relief, etc etc.

Last week we had supper with the Terblanches, lunch at The Friendly Stranger and saw a Centrestage show at The Old Grey Club. Becoming quite social again in my old age and my eighth year of illness, etc etc.

It’s been two weeks of no Wednesday radio. It’s great not being in the public eye (ear!) but I must admit I do miss it! Lance is overseas in the East and we will soon be in the West! The New World! Watch this space when we all back again! All our visas have been approved and arrived now … All we need are Dollars … American and Canadian!

This week is reunion week at Grey. OH Lordie, give me strength! I hope to see the week through and report back next week!

And now it’s eight fifteen and the lights have come on after two hours. I’m actually enjoying the peace and quiet that comes with the darkness.

Chat soon!

Power to the People

Cry the beloved country for the mess that we are in regarding the (lack of) power supply.

The megatwats have let us down once again! And we cannot condone their inefficiencies!

But let’s not be tripped up by the problem. Let’s be innovative and see how we can beat the crisis.

Let us shine … Let us shine … Let us shine!

Please comment and leave your ideas on how to beat the energy crisis. Never mind how big or small the idea, let’s see what you can come up with …

Lights Out!

This is the fourth day since Pera left for Auckland and the – I’ve lost track – sixth (?) day of load shedding!

This weekend, we have been without electricity, fixed line telephones, internet and petrol.

As I started writing this, at 18h00, the lights have just gone off again!

I watched a press interview of the top people at ESKOM this afternoon.

Pleased to note that the CEO says “We do not have a crisis”!

My cramps also appear to have switched off – hopefully the quinine has kicked in – but now I can’t kick out! I have gout!

So much for my good intentions of writing tonight – I’ll try tomorrow when there is light!
