1. Lasting but a short time; fleeting.
Where would you find Oyster Bay? In which province?
Answer: Eastern Cape

The picturesque village, Oyster Bay, were developed on a portion of the farm “Ou Werf”, which belonged to Mr. Henry Potgieter. The portion of the farm that Oyster Bay were developed on borders on the Indian Ocean. Mr. & Mrs. Carel and Phoebe van Tonder took the initiative and approached Mr. Henry Potgieter during 1956 to sell this part of his farm to them. He agreed and the van Tonders started developing it into a coastal resort. The name, Oyster Bay, probably was lent to the many Oyster banks found there then.

A vaccine-like shot that prevents cocaine users from getting high may also help fight addiction to the drug. The vaccine works by stimulating the immune system to produce antibodies that attach to the drug molecules and block them from reaching the brain, helping prevent users from getting a euphoric high. Approximately 40 percent of the participants in a recent study of the shot stopped or cut back their cocaine use as a result, at least temporarily. While the success was somewhat limited, the data show that the vaccine approach may be a viable option in the fight against drug addiction.

TIP OF THE DAY (http://www.wikihow.com/)
How to Receive Love
1.Trust people when they tell you that they love you. Whether it be an intimate relationship, a friendship, or a family relationship, it is important to accept the declaration of love at face value. If you are pushing aside the gift of their love for you because you are afraid that they do not mean it, then you prevent them from having the chance to prove that they do. It also might push them away from you, so that if you change your mind it may be to late.
2.Stop fearing loss. A common reason for not being able to receive love is prior experience of losing someone you loved, whether it was from death, a break-up, or for some other reason that has scarred you. If you spend all of your life pushing aside love given to you on the off-chance that the person offering it might withdraw it, you will always feel cynical and unsure, which is not a comfortable or happy place to be. Instead, embrace the love that they are offering and go with the flow, expecting those who offer you love to stay around.
3.Love yourself. This might be the hardest step of all but if you don't love yourself that much, receiving love is impossible because you don't believe that you deserve it. If this is the case, start working on why you can't love yourself so well, including seeking help to explore the issues involved if needed. Remember that every person is special and that you are very deserving of love.
4.Let love in and don't block it. Simply open your heart, live in the moment and cherish the fact that other people care so deeply about you that you are connected, needed, wanted, and included in the affairs and lives of others. Being open and receptive to the love from others can be learned with practice, provided you don't let cynicism and toughness take over. Let down some of those defenses and pride and let others know that you enjoy their deep care and support for you. And forget about keeping score; love others even if it is not reciprocated. As one large human family, it keeps going around and we receive it back again anyway.
5.Beware the voices of societal negativity. Social conditioning has a habit of making us feel wary of being effusive about and openly accepting of compliments, generosity, caring, and kind acts, lest we be seen as greedy, prideful, or selfish. Do not push aside the caring, wonderful things people have to say about you just because of such negative overlays; be appreciative and embracing of the love given out by others in all its forms. To do otherwise is to block receipt of love.
6.Show love. Receiving love is also about expressing love. Kiss your spouse and children, hug your friends, compliment your colleagues, say friendly and complimentary things to the grocery store clerks. Do this regularly.
7.Watch the experts at receiving love. Children are expert at receiving love because they accept what is said at face value and view receiving love as natural. What is also natural is that being able to receive love creates a balance in which you give and receive in equal measure. Take note of how children manage this beautifully - they ask for help when needed, they give help when asked. They offer compliments without a thought and they accept at face value the compliments that they are given. Re-learning what was once innate for you can restore a lot of happiness and trust in your life.
8.Share your feelings. When true feelings are shared, a trust is created, bond is created and friendly environment becomes available that acts as a catalyst in receiving and giving love.

Dr Eric Bateman from the UCT Lung Institute. The institute is embarking on an international research study and requires participants from the ages of 40 years and over. This particular research is looking at two new forms of treatment which are medication either inhaled or taking as a tablet which just improves the lung capacity of people already affected by lung diseases. Did you know the Western Cape because of the heritage of cigarette smoking has one of the highest incidences of smoking related lung disease? Hence the need for the institute in the Western Cape. Now to find out more and to get involved contact the UCT Lung Institute on 021 406 6924/ 021 406 6927.

Lastly we were joined by Pharmacist Roland Smit–Wright from the Wynberg Pharmacy in Cape Town. Smit-Wright joined us to discuss fatigue which is fairly appropriate especially since it’s almost end of year which = fatigue overdrive.
