Moringa Oleifera

Moringa Oleifera

Discovering the Miracle Tree     Can you live on moringa?

African Folktales Remembered

African Folktales Remembered

To Remember When, Means Folktale Time     Not all memories are worth a makeover? It’s a trilogy! To most authors, that means good news. On my account, the books I write are somewhat short and three do not even constitute one whole book – 80,000 words. So the battle rages and we keep on, […]

Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve

Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve

Flowers! Who Needs Flowers?     Is bigger and better, best? Not when it comes to faith and seeds, if you consider the mustard tree. So, by deduction the flower has a place in our hearts like a garden of mirth. Yeah, like honey from a lion. Had enough yet? Then we’ll move on to […]

Aoudad, Barbary Sheep

Aoudad, Barbary Sheep

Africa’s Barbary Sheep Endangered     This is the plight of the aoudad – Ammotragus lervia Ok, let’s get this straight from the start, they are not North American, sheep.

Nature’s Essential Oils

Antibiotic, Anti-fungal and Antiviral     Natural cure oils do it all Essential oils are today’s only answer. We have to go back to faith and herbs for a better life.

Wall Climbing Snakes

Wall Climbing Snakes

Snakes! Wall and All     All snakes do it Except for large snakes like pythons and anacondas, snakes will climb any surface they can get half a grip on. Like the smallest ledge, outward jutting cement, nails, mesh or cord and they love climbing up cords, like a private jungle-gym – try telephone cables. […]
