aahh...?




I found this nice video on Mwabi's page and 'borrowed' it for my own. I am one of those who has given up on trying to understand what the rules of "football" are. Many have tried to teach me and many have given up...:-) indeed I am that dense when it comes to football. You can read back to all my previous posts about the game if interested.
Another fun video is:-


It fits in splendidly with the news on the BBC ( http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/6267754.stm ) about strained relations between Zambian mine workers and Chinese investors. I guess we're back to the WENELA days! If you're from the southern African region and have no clue what Wenela is...shame on you!
I am in the process of reading Animal Farm again. Yes. I am one of those annoying people that can watch the same movie and read the same book over and over again. I feel like books and movies have a different meaning if you read and watch them at different stages of your life. it's pretty cool. It's been 10 years since I last read Animal Farm, but I still enjoy it. George Orwell...aka Eric Blair was a fun writter.

The mining issue is definitely sad. Even more sad perhaps is that we need a BBC journalist to bring it the fore. The Post Newspaper are busy with Chiluba!

I just watched something yesterday on the history channel about how bad chinese mines are and how often the miners die. It was pretty sad. They don't have any regulations for their own people, so how would we expect ours to be treated any better unless the government takes stiff measures? ahhh the beauty of coloniz..oops, globaliz...oops privatization!
