Morning v's!!!! Looks like all our complaining about the heat paid off, it's a cooler dull day today. Looks like we may get some rain. :dance: :dance:

Thanks kallis. The gym warms you up in winter and cools you down in summer :whistle: :wink: 8)

Sounds awesome Matt. I'm heading to Golden Gate National Park :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :dance: :dance: :dance:

Thanks Heksie, we missed you :gflower:

I also thought I was an angel, but apparently "hitting the gym" questions my femininity :whistle: :whistle: :tongue:


Spargs, I am definitely jealous of both you and heks!!!

Hope everyone has a fantabulous day!!

My tr will be updated a little later.

Hi V's :hello:

I am really Jealous of all you guys visiting Kruger. I wish I could forget about studies and just come back home.

All of you's are working really hard :clap:

The finance exam we were meant to write got postponed due to unforeseen Circumstances and I studied so hard, I will forget it by than :slap: but the bright thing is I have the chance to win a trip to China if I win an essay competition :dance:

WOW Matt, Your family has a farm, I always dreamt that one day I will buy a game farm, which will be like a mini Kruger.

I dont know if anyone has read an article where a Pack of WIld Dogs killed a child at a zoo.

http://www.news24.com/World/News/Mom-helped-child-onto-zoo-railing-20121106

It is stuff like this that makes my blood boil, why do wild life have to suffer for the mistakes human make, especially when there are very little Wild Dogs left in the WILD

Hope everyone had a great day.

Lots of Love from the UK :gflower:

Thanks Heksie. Today is especially one of those hectic days. just decided to take a small break and catch up here. good thing i decided this morning to dress up a little more than usually, to look better than what I feel. :tongue:


-----------------------

The heat/ gym/ sweat what what story sounds like a serious myth to me. A swimming pool and a lekker ice cold beer sounds super great though. and the deck at LS. can I teleport? 8)

Hope everyone have a super day! :D 8)

:shock: That sounds interesting, PESETA :hmz: I prefer living in the olden days where these words did not exist :lol: but the theory makes sense and it is strange how these theories actually do take over the world at the speed of lightening :hmz:

I agree with your statement. A swimming pool would be perfect to get rid of the heat.

:hmz: Join the PESETA club is a good idea if I was in South Africa. Being in the UK, I think I will stop going to the GYM to keep myself warm :mrgreen:

The essay is about why we want to go to China :hmz: although I wish it was on Lions, that would give me a better chance of winning.

I :pray: that your Interview goes well. :pray: Got my fingers and toes crossed. All the best.

It's a pleasure, hopefully both of us will be successful.

I agree, people are very ignorant and firstly how can u let a child stand on the railing of a WILD DOG enclosure. It is sad that the child lost his life, but at the end it is the mothers fault for actually putting the child up.

Same thing also happens in our parks, people jump borders and when a Lion kills someone, unfortunately the Lion has to be shot down.

Why do the animals have to suffer for human carelessness and in their home.

Because us ignorant humans don't think when we do things and we don't even go as far as wonder if there could be consequences for our actions.
