I`ll however try to pop in every now and again to check up on you guys but I don`t expect to have too much free time on my hands.
So till later, this is the Running Golfer signing off.
Ps. Our little girl Phoebe (ok she`s quite big but she`s our little girl) is going on the plane today. I`ll be dropping her off at 11:00 and then Hayley will pick her up in Jhb at 16:00. Elvis will drive up with Hayley and I on Friday night.

So that seamlessly brings me to my new hairstyle, The Inverted Mohawk. Not the mohawk made popular by one of the best method actors of his generation, Mr T. (I dare Robert De Niro to play BA Baracus with the same intensity or the same subtle nuances. It ain`t gonna happen Bob, you sucker fool).
This photo (below) was taken last week when my gorgeous wife got back from Joburg. I admit, there is a slight case of hat hair but nothing can hide the fact that I`m on a downward spiral with regards the hair.
At least I got myself a hot wife before it was too late.

I absolutely adore this song and found it by accident.
One of the main radio stations here in SA is 5FM. Now it`s aimed at the younger market, so I obviously don`t listen to it very often. Not too keen on the dj`s or most of the music. Having said that I own many of the cd`s by the artists featured on that station. I know, I`m strange. It`s ok, I`ve made peace.
I have always liked one of the dj`s though. Her name is Koula. I suppose I started liking her when I read how she had taken up running and she even did the Comrades Ultra Marathon which is the best known race in South Africa. It is a murderous 90km and takes place between Durban and Pietermaritzburg. Thousands of runners from all over the world take part every year and it is massive. Probably the best known Ultra-Marathon in the world.
So she has always been the one 5FM dj that I have "followed" and enjoyed. We do tend to follow those people that we have something in common with.
One Saturday night, while Hayley was away, I was flicking tv channels and came upon a late night South African talk show. Koula was the guest, so I decided to check it out. She was chatting about her running and her job and it was the usual stuff. Then she started talking about her new tv show which was gonna air the next morning, called Psalted. It is a Music Show, featuring the best in Christian music. The host of the show was kinda shocked and said "Christian music?". Koula then went on and explained that she was a devoted Christian. She even joked and called herself a "happy clappy". Respect. I for one love it when people stand up for their beliefs at the risk of being mocked. Especially on live tv. Mind you, I don`t think this specific talk show has more than 50 viewers.
So the next morning I made a point of watching the show. This song, Refuse to be denied by the Desperation Band was on. I had never heard of the group but immediately loved it. I`m sure you guys will too.
Let me know what you think.

Cape Town - e.tv's news channel, eNews, inadvertently reported on Monday that George Bush had died.
The words "George Bush is dead" appeared on the television screen for approximately three seconds shortly after 14:00.
e.tv spokesperson Vasili Vass said the error crept in when the technical director wanted to test what a certain type of banner would look like on the screen.
"Instead of the preview button he pressed the one for direct broadcasting."
Now my question is this. Whatever happened to "testing, testing, 1, 2"?

This is quite a cool one (although not the best one from a vanity point of view).
So this is what you do.
- Sit down. (Just like Mel, I`m a bit of a rebel so I did the standing thing. Also, the only mirror, other than the ones in the bathrooms, is on the ceiling above our bed.... HA HA HA - just kidding!!! Seriously, just kidding!!!)
- Take a picture of yourself right now.
- Don't primp.
- Upload it to a new post.
- Tag 5 people to do the same.
So I`m tagging:
And remember, "don`t hate the player, hate the game"

unsuccessful. No correspondence will be entered into.
Why on earth must a pilot be able to swim? Unless of course this low cost airline (who shall remain anonymous) do not have too much faith in their fleet of USED aircrafts. I`d prefer a pilot who couldn`t swim because I know he`ll try his utmost to keep the big bird in the air or away from big lakes, oceans, rivers, estuaries or olympic swimming pools.
