Today is the third Mandela Day where individuals are inspired to take action by spending 67 minutes of their time to help change the world we all live in, for the better. Corporates have also thrown their weight behind this day, which is scheduled on Nelson Mandela’s birthday.
This year, we will all spare a thought and prayer for Madiba who has been in hospital in Pretoria in critical condition.
It is believed that humans only use 10% of our brains. If that is true, then how much of our brains would we need to use to pour a glass of beer?

I am not really into gambling much, but I do occasionally try my luck on the roulette tables and the end of the month Lotto big pay out weekends. Last night, Thursday, the 10th of July 2013, I attended Tsogo Sun’s inaugural SLOTS FACTOR National Championship.

The very cold weather and grey skies probably played a part in the amount of people who turned up at the Hello Johannesburg Magazine Joburg July event at Turffontein Race Course. The crowd who did turn up was large enough to create a cozy vibe. The venue at Turffontein Race Course was beautifully decorated with couches for those who just wanted to chill and round tables for groups of friends to sit together. I would, however, have preferred that the round tables were placed closer to the large windows that face the race course. The area was set up in such a way to divert people’s attention towards the big screens showing live TV feeds from DSTV’s Telly Track and the Vodacom Durban July.
Internet connectivity and data costs have become a big reality in most, if not all, of our lives. Using multiple devices like smart phones, laptops and tablets in our everyday lives, has become second nature to most of us.
