Monday 12 April 2021, Day 43 of Level 1. 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for one of the best Mondays in a long time, a day of leisure and dining indulgence; for getting my writing completed in time; for the treat of the company of Gary Peterson for 5 1/2 hours at the new Grand Pavilion Restaurant on Beach Road in Sea Point, and for getting such a fabulous table nearest the pavement, with the view onto the palm tree-lined Beach Road Boulevard; for a guided tour of Harry’s Bar by owner Michael Townsend; for meeting FaceBook Friend Johnny Snyman who was there too; for chatting to Brian Van Hansen who cycled past our table and came to chat; for lovely food, especially Gary’s rack of lamb and my Chocolate Torte dessert; for being spoilt with a cocktail/mocktail with the compliments of Michael; for just indulging in the lovely lounge seating area; for fabulous service from Charlene Shapiro of CNC Products, who dropped off an order of mixed nuts and cake mix at the restaurant, knowing that I was there; for a walk with Vivian Warby almost immediately after coming home, indulging in the most amazing sunset at Bakoven, sitting on the steps of a bungalow of a most kind owner; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

SA Butler Academy gets a Karma klap, Website not accessible! Marketing dishonesty continues!

It must be a devastating blow to the Academy, so focused on trying to keep me off the Google Top 10 list when one Googles its name, my 2013 Blogpost about its dishonesty still ranked third!

Wednesday 7 April 2021, Day 38 of Level 1 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a lovely sunny 23C day; for an up and down day, luckily more up; for getting my writing work done in time before meeting with my client, he having the tea and shortbread ready when I arrived, being on the same wavelength as I on a number of decisions which needed to be made; for a lovely walk to the Camps Bay Tidal Pool with Vivian Warby, savouring the beautiful sunset; for (only) one Discovery Gameboard play, not receiving an Insure one for my poor driving score on my last Stellenbosch trip 😱; for a fabulously efficient Takealot order delivery, the perfection of online ordering; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →

SA Butler Academy continues its lies to its students and future employers, and now hides its disparagement of its critics on its website!


Last week I was alerted by Lin Yang, the Singaporean student who managed to interest Carte Blanche in doing a story on the SA Butler Academy (SABA), about a revolutionary change in the Academy’s website, a 180 degree turnaround in how it has dealt with anyone brave enough to write anything critical about it!

In addition, about two weeks ago I happened to look at the SABA website, and found a page motivating why Butler students should study at the Academy, once again riddled with errors and lies!  Continue reading →
