Actor Burt Reynolds passed away on Thursday aged 82. R.I.P. He gave us some real light-hearted entertaining movies.

Recently we had another electric cables theft incident, learnt something really helpful from it.

 

This time it happened in our street, late one night. The replacement cables were the interesting part - from what was said to us, it turns out that Eskom and / or our municipality have now been doing the replacing with theft-proof cabling - looks like they're made of steel or aluminium, I would think some sort of electrically useful alloy design that's got little resale value. Excellent !


Would be interesting to find out what the replcement cables are, and the technical specs.  The problem is that it comes at a cost of power transmission efficiency, which means more power losses and hence pressure on tarriffs to make up for the losses.

I'm told that one of the debates that regularly goes on at the MyBB forums is the flat Earth theory. Maybe someone wants to show them the attached pic :-D

Songs of hers that I could remember were Respect and You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman.

RIP Aretha


Those are probably her best know songs but there are quite a few others that were massive hots for her. No one truly sang soul like she did. they showed a clip on CNN today where she was performing fairly recently at a charity event - and everyone sitting on stage - including Barak Obama - had tears in their eyes.
