My Khanya blog

For as long as I can remember there have been debates among Christians about the relationship between social justice and evangelism. And the majority, or at least the loudest voices, seemed to think that one or ought to have priority, and that the other should be secondary. Those who regarded themselves as evangelicals, as their [...]

I like to see which posts on this blog people read most, and that is one of the uses of blog statistics. But the posts that are read most don’t necessarily have the most comments. Here are the most popular recont posts: The one on the appearance of Jesus Christ was a fuller repost, because [...]

Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut My rating: 4 of 5 stars I first read this book 35 years ago, and quite enjoyed it. It was about a man who invented the atomic bomb also inventing Ice-9, an isotope of ice that froze at 114 degrees Fahrenheit, and would convert any water it touched into ice, [...]

Hayes and Greene family history

Val is on leave and last Friday we went to Johannesburg and did some research in the LDS Family History Centre in Parktown.  One of the things I always enjoy when going to the LDS Family Centre is the walk through the garden between the car park and the reading room. It is a pleasant [...]

I keep getting messages from, saying that there are SmartMatches for my family tree, or that various people want access to my tree. When I go to their site, however, I cannot do anything about these, because I get this message: Your family tree has 10,592 people. This exceeds the Basic subscription plan of [...]

The past few weeks have been pretty busy with other things, and so not much time for family history. Our son Simon got a new job in Johannesburg, doing computer animation, which is what he’s really been wanting to do for a long time, and until he found a place to stay there at the [...]

My Tribal Blog

Our dog Ariel had a second lot of puppies - five of them this time. They were born in winter, on 8 June, and all surviced, though they were born under a drainpipe, in the coldest, dampest place she could find, so they must be tough. We could not afford to keep any of them, and so sold them, and the last one, which we called Theodore, went yesterday. We were sorry to see him go, and he was becoming attached to us, and we to him, but I think he had a good home, with another pup a month older th... read more

It was Simon's 30th birthday today, and here he is with our remaining puppy Fluffy Lumpkin, now three and a half months old. . The other two have gone to a monastery about 25 km west of us, so maybe we will still see them sometimes.

Our puppies are now three weeks old, and their eyes are fully open. Soon Simon won't be able to hold all three at once, as he is doing here. They are looking less like moles and more like dogs, with wagging tails.

Last year was a sad one for us, as three dogs died. First our five-year-old bonsai Alsatian Alexa suddenly took ill in the middle of the night, and died within an hour. We gor another Alsatian puppy, Ralf, and he ate his way into our hearts, but died 12 days later. We got him to the vet, and it was diagnosed as biliary, which was probably what killed Alexa as well.

Then we got Mardigan, who was poisoned by thieves who stole our car.

In September last year we got Samwise, who grew to a... read more

Our friend Sue in Cyprus posted a photo of the view from her front door here
