I am attending to the issue, with regard to the sexual posts being made without my consent.
Linkedin posted my old outdated mail2blogger email address and someone with too much time on their hands decided to have some fun with that.
I am following up with Linkedin and also with blogger about how to stop this happening again.
If you see any suspicious posts please ignore them for the time being, thank you.

|The riveting Thabiso Radebe|
– a play written and directed by DUT drama graduate Thabiso Radebe.
Watching this play was an incredibly emotional experience for me. Knowing the writer/actor Thabiso personally, it struck a chord and resonated deeply within. The sweet lady to my left sobbed quietly the entire play, as emotions overwhelmed her. I found myself sitting with arms folded – protecting myself psychologically from what I was hearing, seeing, feeling. I had to stop myself from looking at the content through an entire lifetime's worth of ideas and conceived notions. The end result was that the character remained with me for days afterwards, I wanted to help him. Reassure him. I felt for him. I was moved, and felt inspired to make a greater effort to love and accept each person I meet, regardless of their gender, sexual preference or religious background.
Thabiso portrays the young man – a time hardened gay prostitute at the end of his proverbial rope. The play explores his longing for acceptance, his desire for real love and the strangle-hold that his deceased mother's memory has over him. The use of drugs and alchohol play a part in his demise, and throughout the play an artist (Mgcini Mthupha) stands bound with cord, painting scenes from the character's life, while voice artist and Zulu poet (Nomandla Mchunu) provides the sumptuous vocal backdrop to each scene, whether as the ticking of time, the voice of the past or as the deranged mind of a desperate young man.
Congratulations Thabiso. You have taken a dream and made it a reality. A taboo subject that needs a "reality check" - I wish you all the best.

Hey there, just a quick note to say that I've been on holiday since mid March and will only be back in action after April 10th.
Have a fantastic Easter break and for those of you enjoying Splashy - have a blast! So jealous!
I'm spending quality time with my kids and busy getting into the swing of home schooling AND running a business!
