Soon the world will have new Pope. One of his first prayers should be not to deliver Humans from their sins, but from their stupidity.

My “Navigator” and I spent a few days last week up the West Coast near Lamberts Bay.
SA’s small towns are always fascinating and sometimes crumbling
I took this pic at Leipoldtville (named after Louis Leipoldt)….check your map.

Over the holiday period I heard this “joke” -
Man walks into a store and asks for the largest K***r pot they have.
Store assistant says ” Sir, we can’t use that word any more. We call them Cast Iron pots.”
“OK” says the man. “Give me your largest Cast Iron pot”
Store assistant says “Its heavy and you will need help to carry it”
“No problem” says the man. “I have two Cast Irons in the back of my bakkie who can carry it”
What this “joke” illustrates is that people (not necessarily we SA’s) will always find a way to convey our our prejuduces and dislikes even if it is supposedy politically correct or cloaked in pretty words. Human nature will never change.
My late Father was of the opinion that the world would only be a happy place when all its peoples were coffee coloured but even then, that would not help the thoughts that come from peoples minds and as long as we live in the world we do, self interest will remain at the expense of putting others down whether they are of all the same culture and colour or not (the recently deposed Arab leaders are perhaps an example).
Below is something more pleasant………New Years day 2012 from Kalk Bay Harbour
