Controversial toll road through the Wild Coast gets the go-ahead

 

The Wild Coast and Amathole Mountains are two of South Africa’s least westernised and most beautiful areas, where the Xhosa people live a traditional lifestyle amid the green rolling hills once inhabited by the young Nelson Mandela. In these neighbouring parts of the Eastern Cape province, community-run backpacker lodges in stunning locations offer eco-friendly rondavel accommodation and opportunities to experience Xhosa culture.

 

Five villagers returning from a mass meeting opposing mining on the Pondoland Wild Coast were attacked by about 10 men armed with knobkerries and pangas.

Van Riebeeck and load shedding:

Yeah, I'm sure it's just my conspiracy theory paranoia - but there are well established precedents of the ANC destabilising areas intentionally without regard to the cost. So it might surprise me if JZ's comment wasn't a backhand reference to their beloved Western Cape. 
 

Here's what's interesting:

Australia based MRC controls Tormin:  Disregards Environmental Protection Regulations

It's kind of weird that when I post the most arbitrary personal shit: like a sprain injury - I get hundreds of hits a day. (780 in 2 days, and counting.)

When I post something I'm actually interested in, and try to draw a subtle correlation; like the noctilucent clouds that accompanied SpaceX 9 Falcon's launch (at the same time, more or less, as the X-Class solar flare and earth projected CME occurred) .... in just on 2 months that got 105 hits. (Weird, because the reported cause and correlation just make no sense.)

The pain... is like a canker eating my leg from the foot up.

It'll pass. I know it will in a month or 3. Or 4.

6 weeks now.

And Christ Almighty it's completely debilitating.

Some people can handle pain. I think I even have a high threshold. But continual, continuous, pain... even say, half a migraine's worth...

And MONTHS of virtual stagnation.

Is eating my soul.

TOMORROW I start with upper body exercises. Situps, crunches, curls, .... whatever.

This is not going to break the foundation I laid with such effort.
