Winter is ending and I can no longer hide my ‘unfit’ bulges behind sweaters, vests, and jackets.  It is high time to think about increasing my exercise routine.

The Ministry of Industrialization, Trade and SME Development (MITSD) and the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) hosted the first-ever viewing and networking experience for the Swakara carpet industry in Namibia last week on 16-17 August at the Franco Namibia Cultural Centre (FNCC), in Windhoek.   The naturally Namibian industry struggles to retain skilled workers and attract the investment needed for expansion.

When my younger nieces and nephews come over to visit, I feel renewed. Is there nothing more healing than hearing the laughter of a child?  When I see babies and their smiles (particularly while they are sleeping), I feel stronger, warmer and contented.  Even if I feel low, seeing the light of laughter in a child’s eyes makes my heart sing.

All my life I have dreaded asking people to buy something from me.  I feel that the ‘asker’ is in the weaker position vis-à-vis the potential ‘buyer’ and that means that those seeking sales have to swallow some yucky powerless pills, just to get the money flowing.

The Lion King (2019), directed by Jon Favreau, now showing at all Ster-Kenikor cinemas, is the most delightful movie I’ve seen for years.  The storyline of this updated version scrupulously follows the 1994 original animated release of the movie by the same name.
