A friend sent me the link to a New York Times opinion piece inspired by Greece’s current unexpected leading role in the global financial crisis. In it, a Professor of history discusses Greece’s oft forgotten vanguard function at the forefront of modern European development, beyond just its ancient cradle of culture cliché - from Greece’s 1820 revolution against the Ottoman Empire rousing the whole of Europe and ultimately leading away from empire-building to the birth of homogenous…Continue
After one of the coldest winter's in years, Grahamstown's spent the last week basking in sunshine! It's still freeeeeeezing at night, but daytimes are positively balmy! And maybe it's cos I was writing a commentary piece on the Greeks yesterday - check out the long blog after this one - but as I was making a fire last night, my thoughts fell on two little nations - one at the bottom of Europe and the other at its very top - who in the bitter cold of winter 1940 fought these amazing guerilla…Continue

As you know by now, I am obsessed with Cinemagraphs. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
The difference between GIF(Graphics Interchange Format) and Cinemagraphs, is that an animated .gif is usually a sequence of stills pulled from a video, combined together and repurposed into a .gif. Cinemagraphs are different because Jamie and Kevin use a single photograph while adding a…Continue

“He had more issues than the Readers Digest, so she cancelled her subscription.”
I was raised to be a good girl, nice to strangers, and caring to the less fortunate. But seriously, what do I look like? Florence bloody Nightingale?
I seem to have got myself ensconced with a good-looking, successful, charming, funny gentleman who happens to have so much baggage that I’m sure he shouldn’t be allowed to purchase flight tickets at normal…Continue

Please note I don’t have a photographic memory, I have a…Continue
