Ramping Up 80 Moons

in Silver Bloggers2 months ago

I Look At Life From Both Sides Now

Today somewhat a normal Wednesday, I did shopping which entails a walk around, not quite how I envisioned celebrating my 80 Moons on Hive, late afternoon now time to write!

Dancing Around Band Stand In Nursery - A Little Psychedelic Fun

Yesterday being Woman's Day in South Africa I tottered around the local nursery finding some herb and vegetable seeds with summer around the corner, another seasonal planting out start up kit.

Wall Art - Life

Pondering how much life has changed when stumbling across how people react to something we should take in our stride every day, posing the question 'what is a woman' with ladies of Hive, after all it is woman's day, not so?

Now many might wonder why, it's a biological, not ideological, definition, we are born that way, a small percentage might not be comfortable, there are modern drugs, new technology to change ones gender and appearance, each to their own in bringing oneself happiness.

Bemused at how many are being influenced by this small minority I reminded myself of how we fought/still fighting for equal rights, abortion, contraception, gender based violence, to name but a few, this topic sounds to me it's being turned into a 'free for all', veering off the path, or am I wrong!

Decisions

Checking out health of pond at the nursery it was great to see Mom and Pop Duck or is that Goose with Little ones, I know the owners and staff at the nursery have spent a fair penny clearing this water that was filled with sewerage spill caused by floods.

Now for the 'Oh How Cute'!

Bridge The Gap

After visiting nursery, follow up inspection of the river to find out what is happening down the road, dogs are bursting to get to the beach once again, as am I.

IMG_9469.JPG

Trains Definitely Not Running Yet

Looking upriver in the region of hills where I live the road bridges are safe and secure, both old road and freeway. During 1980's flood we lost the coastal road bridge which was rebuilt in no time at all....

IMG_9464.JPG

Park across the way looked safe enough to enter, this park is not always nick named 'murder park' for good reason!

IMG_9480.JPG

View of the bridge from the park, fisherman walking along I later asked condition of water and reply was 'not good', locals that fish these waters will be the first to let you know.

IMG_9488.JPG

Evidence blatantly clear once I reached the waters edge, dead fish with human pollution still floating around!

IMG_9491.JPG

After walking the park alongside the river one last glimpse (more trash in reeds), rail bridge needs fixing, how long will this take? Electric cables have been stolen along this line that feeds between Durban and the Lower South Coast Industries one would think it was a priority, apparently not so!

Taking this opportunity to thank all my friendly Hive acquaintances for 80 Moons together on Hive, always supportive in many communities via engagement, expression, honesty and freedom of the blockchain! Happiness is what we make it.

Thank you! I Look At Life From Both Sides Now - Joni Mitchell

Wow! beautiful village nature and art photography

After April floods still a lot of damage to be fixed, sewerage is one of the main problems here, it stinks!

Art in the gardens of nursery a fun way to spend some time out of the home with large trees and many other attractions to entice one to revisit.

!LUV Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful Wednesday.

The abortions, rape cases is just something I can't comprehend why one will indulge in such. Life is precious and should be preserved. And so is that rail bridge needing attention to be fixed.
Not a good habit polluting our environment, the country is beautiful lets keep it beautiful.

That little duck really does looks cute!

Woman still take the brunt end, when I see old woman carrying water in buckets on their head I want to scream at the powers that be. No woman or child is safe outdoors after dark, hell many are not safe in their own homes!

I miss the sound of trains passing over the bridge which carries up the valley, how industry is moving product must be costing them a fortune, not to mention the already damaged road. Here in Toti the freeway still jammed up in Northerly direction daily.

Young ones always get labelled "cute" !LOLZ

!BEER
!WINEX have a pleasant Wednesday evening and thanks for visit.

Young ones always get labelled "cute"

This is true until they are grown up and no longer cute 😃

You know I was in JHB CBD 2 weeks ago and I felt out of place I was scared, I just had to be in and out of town. Our world just doesn't safe any more.

Towns are not longer safe like they used to be, let alone going into city.

Do the passenger trains still run, or are you using taxi power up there now?

Stay safe, yes this world is no longer what we thought it would be.

I am not sure of the train but I think its still works, I stopped using that years ago, the pick-pocket and fully packed of the train commuting is just too much for me to blend with.

I can imagine how dodgy it has become to train travel, growing up it was the only way to commute. Taxi wars, overloaded vans now hold transport of people in similar conditions, dangerous and expensive.


Hey @joetunex, here is a little bit of BEER from @joanstewart for you. Enjoy it!

Do you want to win SOME BEER together with your friends and draw the BEERKING.

So much beauty besides waste and death, so much love, respect and understanding besides hate and ignorance ... our life has changed so much in the past centuries and still we are as far away from a peaceful world where one respects the other as we were hundreds of years ago.

No answer to what is happening currently, one thing my Mom always said was "imminent water wars". People need to take stock on how we treating many resources, including attitude toward each other.

!LUV still found with !LOLZ being best medicine !WINEX to drown out the noise in my head.....

As long as the people only look on how to make most money, as long our earth will suffer.

We need more !LOLZ and !LUV and !WINE 🍷

Very true, we have little to no say except try to do our best as individuals.

Just had a yellow-billed kite cruise over, first one this year so they are back! No did not capture a photograph 🙃 just watched awesome arrival.

!LUV for nature !PIZZA for dinner !WINE to dine and lots of !LOLZ to keep you going, happy Friday hope this is a weekend off!

Sometimes it's just great to watch a bird or a scene like I sometimes watch changing lights in a landscape scene and don't think of taking a photo
I am sure you'll get some photos of the kite later 😉

Yep, I have this weekend off and the next two weekends too. Today is rainy, but I hope it will be dry during the night, because a little hike is waiting for me tomorrow 😀 !LOLZ

Wishing you a wonderful weekend 🌞

Hope you got that hike in, we have a sudden 'cold' spell and rain here again for the weekend.

Kites will be here for around 6 months now sure to see them again.

!BEER

Yep, I got that hike, but a bit different than planned because it was freezing cold and windy on the first peak, so I left because I have been much too early for sunrise anyway.
It was completely cloudy and when I arrived on the second peak, which is only a half hour hike from the road, it even began to rain slightly.
So, images like this one was all I have got this morning, but I've been out and have done something and that's even more important :)

It is also rainy here and it has got quite cold in the past days, but it's nice after all the heat we have had.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend 🌞

Good you got to be out, clear the head, cold wind pushing through in bright sunshine this morning.

Mountains reflect the mood in photo, that rain looks close.

North and South appears to be in similar mood !LOLZ sunset yesterday.

Congratulations on all those moons, six years is awesome Joan:)
Uff that human pollution though :(

Thanks for greetings, yes shitty water is no good to man nor beast.

Yea and a big super moon too!
Enjoy your weekend Joan :)

hehe you needed a voice activated control ;)

Man in the moon smiling down, listening to night sounds...., only time quite descends is late!

hehe that man in the moon sees alot to smile about:)

I love this, especially ending with a song my father used to sing all the time when I was a kid. I used to roll my eyes when he sang it. Now I realize it was a great song.

I'm not the brightest bulb in the ceiling but, yes I agree, it's being turned into a "free for all".

Joni Mitchell made some lovely songs, writing some posts a song suddenly resonates with mood, glad you got to enjoy it all over again.

!LUV trying to be positive through difficult, understanding and questioning never finding clear answers.

Happy 80 moons day @joanstewart 🤣

Busy having fun! Thanks !BEER

Very nice view especially the duck

Thanks for the wishes, photography is the only way I can express what happens in my life.

!PIZZA appreciate the visit.

Thanks for the slice of pizza

Enjoy! Slice of life...

I love the photos you took in the nursery...one of our favorite places to stop over...

Just sad about the pollution happening again. I heard over the radio yesterday that they reckon they should be able to clear it up quickly...but where have I heard that before...? Why is it happening in the first place?

Thank for sharing this, @joanstewart!

Have a great weekend!

All along beachfront side of the highway from Isipingo to Umgababa forever waiting for spares, or don't know how to repair....

We waiting to get onto the beach since floods, river and sea are polluted although no one is being honest to admit the E.Coli is still in both.

Nursery imported specialist cleaning system to get their little pond cleared and running once again, went down on Tuesday sad to say not as busy as normal for a public holiday.

That's the only constant...they keep making the noise they know people want to hear, but nothing gets done.

That's good news about the pond👍!

We were there 2 or 3 weekends ago, and we also found it a bit on the quiet side.

Small business has taken a hard knock, I fear worse is yet to come.

Small business has taken a hard knock, I fear worse is yet to come.

Sorry for not getting back to your yesterday...we had a great Sunday. Yes, the chill is in the air indeed. It looks like we'll have one warm day on Wednesday, the rest of the time is rather on the chilly side...lol.

I appreciate the winter, believe me...lol! We'll be down here for twenty years by next year July. But we would still rather have the heat down here than the cold in Johannesburg...lol.

Jo'burg the cold get right in the bones and sits there all through winter...
