The week that was


What has your week been like, a challenge, boring, full of optimise or just another week? Well I hope it brought some new adventure, opera unity or fun. 
I know you want to know what my week was like. Where do I start, weather wise it started damp and windy but with the promise of sunshine later in the week. I did spend the week waiting for content for websites I am doing, but that is not unusual, just a little frustrating. You will be pleased to know the App is coming along fine and will be finished by the end of the month, I will do a website conversion and blog you the URL (web address) when complete. Unfortunately it is an in house app so will not be available to download on your bright new iPhone or iPads. 
The end of the week brought sunshine, pack the towels, sub board, kayak and we all hit the beach , the sun changing our pale skins in a matter of hours to a pink hue. Had my first swim of the year and looking at the skies today, it maybe my last. 
Talking of weather, did you hear it snowed in Pretoria and surrounding areas on Tuesday, amazing, frightened all those wee black children with those big brown eyes, looking in wonder at what was falling from the heavens. Muttering of witchcraft were heard in the corridors of power, parliament reconvened to see what could be done and it was decided the problem would have to go to committee. 
That brings me on to great men and the fact that some really great people have made extraordinary speeches through out time, these resulting in people doing  extraordinary  deeds, thus changing the course of history. 
Abraham Lincoln in his Gettysburg speech promising that America would always be governed by the people, for the people. 
Churchill speech aimed at the Germans and promising " We will never surrender".
 Mandela in his rainbow speech.
"The time for the healing of the wounds has come. 
The moment to bridge the chasms that divide us has come.
The time to build is upon us."
He also started that famous speech with.
 'Out of the experience of an extraordinary human disaster that lasted too long, must be born a society of which all humanity will be proud.'  
This stopped South Africa from major unrest and civil war. Granny June always said he was a great man and history bears that out.
We are going to Swanage today in an open top bus for a later lunch, so enjoy your weekend and we will speak soon.
