The Lounge

Re: The Lounge

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 !

All makes sense to me now. So this proves that the Earth is indeed ..... flat?

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

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.

Re: The Lounge

Krugie may as well use the Lounge for any category not previously listed on this Forum. Lounge is falling into ruin due to lack of incoming revenue from the sale of drinks and people not visiting it.

Never was a big follower of Aretha Franklin and, in fact had to wrack my brains trying to think of what songs made her famous to the rest of the world, but that's not to say she wasn't an icon in her field of music. Songs of hers that I could remember were Respect and You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman.

RIP Aretha

Re: The Lounge

Since there are no community categories suitable for this anymore and we used to have a  thread on the old forum regarding this, I though I would use the Lounge to post that Queen of Soul - Aretha Franklin - passed away yesterday. She was a true legend in her field and the first female to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1987).

Re: The Lounge

Thankfully, although still not warm as such, the cold spell does seem to be moving on and the weather is SLIGHTLY warmer today. Suns out and no more signs of rain. Still fair amount of snow on the mountains though which is keeping temperatures down a bit. Seeing that the cold front is now moving north. Get out your blankets.

Re: The Lounge

Re: The Lounge

And to you too JeanP. Don't know where you stay but here in Cape Town it's, as you say, freezing cold. It's 15 degrees inside the house. Thankfully though the cold has brought a lot of rain and snow. Or should that be that the rain and snow has brought the cold. Whichever way the rain has been most welcome and our local dams have had, and with the snow will continue to have, lots of water running into them. Believe the dams are currently around 50% full. So, filling up very nicely but can still do with lots more.

Feel sorry for the homeless and those in low lying areas whose homes have been flooded. So not all good news. A couple of nice warm sunny days again would be most welcome. Then the rains can return.
