We will kick off the evening at sunset with Tanya Nicholson and St John Haw and canapés and drinks. Followed by a mediterranean dinner and dancing.
No power again today in hilton, fun. A bunch of girls really not great at starting a generator so we had to get a local hero from build it to help us. But seriously? What is it that we accept this? Along with the public protectors snazzy move, along with JZ’s continued shenanigans, along with well the list is endless. WE all just carry on.
The state of our nation’s health department is horrendous. Seriously it seems to me it can’t get worse but in all likelihood it will.
and we roll
Seriously we need to catch a wake up. No-one is looking after your interests despite the bill you pay to SARS. No-one. Get solar, get gas, find another way. If you mean to stay. Make it work without complaining. The writing is on the wall.

Whilst the world (rightly so) is horrified at the current state of zuma/zupta/corruption in south africa to the absolutely insane attacks in the UK but ALSO the ongoing terrible and unacceptable carnage in syria, iraq, afghanistan (this list is way longer and way worse than most of what the “west” has seen).
I would like to bring all of your attention to something that is “silently” killing way more people. Diabetes. Don’t believe me – look at the horrendous stats. They do speak for themselves. In both the west as well as the east as well as the poorest of the poor.
Diabetes is a scurge that is on the surge. And with no even small little sign of stopping.
What is type 2 ? A disease of wealth but also of abnormal eating. There is no reason to get type 2 diabetes unless you have actually “abused” your body OR if you have had cancer or a tumour of your pancreas.
It is a disease of too much sugar into the body. Too many simple carbs stuffed into a single body and the pancreas says ok well enough is enough and all of a sudden once you have lost 50% of them pancreas cells you find yourself diabetic.
Type 1 however is a different story. This is a case of severely unfair dishing out of disease. Mostly children and young adults who out of the blue have total pancreas failure. And become dependant (i.e. you die without it) on insulin.
Type 1 is NOT avoidable by anything you do or do not do.
Type 1’s rely on insulin, without it they die.
Diabetes is killing and causing loss of quality of life for many many people.
Educate yourself and be aware of what you say. Prevent yourself from getting type 2 and help others understand the difference.
