Man's achievements one of many.

Most of us live in metropolitan cities nowadays and I for one at times take things for granted. At times I have to take a second and think how did I get from home to work or going about my daily business, how does the gas, Electricity, water, get to my house, and just wonder how things work. most of the time it does not matter to me as long as I have all these services working but on the other hand I am not that ignorant, I am a bit inquisitive. I must say one of the greatest achievements man has improved is Tunnelling.

 Can you imagine living in a city without the underground transport or your water, gas, sewage pipes, electric, telephone, mobile cables running parallel to our streets at street level, I am scared to even imagine it. You must hand to the igneous thinking of man. Now we not only link cities we link countries and soon continents.

Next time when you walk around your neighbourhood, town or city take a moment to think about what makes things work, you will be amazed at what you will find and what you take for granted !!!!!

The Iron Lady Dies

She was the Iron Lady. Why? It’s not surprising given that she was forced to work with the male chauvinistic mentality of the 70’s and 80’s in both her own government and around the world. She had to belt up in order to run things and make changes, whether they were large or small. Most people have no idea how tough it is to work with an all male dominated workplace, let alone set off the political change that she managed to. I must say I admired her tenacity and her resolve and she will be sorely missed by most.

Below are some of a dew leaders who had the pleasure of being on the receiving end of her iron fist:

May she rest in peace. and may God Bless her.

Life Through My Eyes

Image From Link
Hi guys. I know it's been a while but I'm back now so expect more posts in the next few weeks. Firstly, hope everyone has started 2013 well, I'm trying to be more consistent with my blogging among other things on my New Year Resolutions list :)

Anyway back to the business end of things. I am a member of EyeEm, a free photo sharing and discovery community. Besides just sharing photos online, we do EyeEm meetups when we get together, take long photowalks and hang out through our various cities. It's also a great time to meet your online friends in person. I went to my first EyeEm meetup in London last year and it was great, I can't wait for the next one.

EyeEm Meetup London 2012

EyeEm has just recently created a function which I have embedded whereby a slideshow of all my EyeEm photos appears on my blog. Feel free to check this out if you're interested, you can find this on the right hand side just below my profile photo.

Take a look to see a few (of the hundreds) of photos I snap on the daily - I really do take too many :)

If you would like to use any of my pictures for honourable purposes, please feel free to ask. I hope you enjoy them as much I do.

EyeEm rocks!
