To celebrate growing older

Written By Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland, Ohio
"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me.
It is the most-requested column I've ever written."
My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is my column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry;
God never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words ''In five years, will this matter?"

27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive everyone everything.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time, time..
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood.
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need...
42. The best is yet to come.
43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.

Tara Louise Notcutt (director), Albert Pretorius and Gideon Lombard (actors) who joined us to chat about a production called ‘Miskien’ presented by The Pink Couch in association with GO2 Production Management.

‘Miskien’ is about the spaces between people,and what we do, what we don’t do, what we say and what we keep to ourselves when we want to fill them. It is about saying the unsayable.

Performed in English and Afrikaans, and devised by the company, ...miskien is simple: a story about two regular guys. Two guys - best friends - from similar backgrounds, similar jobs and similar dead end lives. Check it out at the Intimate Theatre 37 Orange Street Cape Town or contact 072 569 8287

Performances of Giselle in South Africa date from as far back as 1947, when Alexis Rassine partnered Olive James in a production of the second act, mounted by the South African National Ballet, at the City Hall in Cape Town.

The version that the Cape Town City Ballet brings to the Baxter in September was first created by the late David Poole in the Nico Malan Opera House in 1972, with Phyllis Spira partnered by Eduard Greyling in the leading roles. For more details check out

Keeping you in touch and in tune with your community that’s what we do every Thursday on the Morning Cruise ……….............................................

1. Inclined to keep one's thoughts, feelings, and personal affairs to oneself.

How to Avoid Being Stuck in Traffic
Step 1

First, find out what your options for public transportation are in your area. Using trains and subways will cut down on your time spent frustrated behind the wheel. Even if you are stuck in traffic on a bus you can spend that time reading or working on a laptop instead of swearing at people who cut in front of you.
Step 2
Explore car pooling in your area. If you live near coworkers this is the best. As in the bus example above, you may still be in traffic but at least you wont be the one driving in it every day. And if enough people did this it would reduce the amount of traffic on the roads.
Step 3
Know the alternate traffic routes you can take to work and back home. Don't just assume the biggest highway is the most efficient route for you to take. Experiment with alternate routes on your way home or use mapquest for alternate suggestions. Sometimes just a slight adjustment on the back roads can save you time and frustration because everyone else is using the route you would normally take.
Step 4
Next, ask your employer about flexible hours. If you normally work from 8:30 to 5 then ask if you can work from 7:30 to 4 or 9:30 to 6. This will help you avoid the peak traffic times. Granted if you work 9:30 to 6 you will get to work and back home a little later but at least you wont be as stressed in the process.
Step 6
Also aware of the school bus schedule's and routes near your home and work. Having to drive past a school or getting stuck behind an elementary school bus are sure ways to increase your commuting time. Even if an alternate route ads a mile or two to your commute it will at least be a mile spent moving faster than 10 MPH.
Step 7
Finally, if your commute isn't too far and you really want to get crazy you can walk or ride your bike to work. Not only will this cut down on the time you are stuck behind the wheel, but it will improve your health too.

How to Make Decisions Easier
Step 1

Don't make decisions while stressed or under pressure. When you recognize that you're being forced to make a quick decision, step back and wait until the situation cools before making up your mind.
Step 2
Pay attention to your "gut feeling" when making decisions. No one knows why we get those flashes of inspiration that can't be logically explained but often times they're right. Don't disregard your instincts.
Step 3
Consider other points of view. Make sure you're analyzing the situation from all possible angles. You may come across a perspective that you hadn't considered.
Step 4
Learn from your mistakes. Remember the consequences of similar past decisions. When making decisions you'll want to include the historical perspective - did it turn out well the last time you chose in the same way?
Step 5
Take your time. There's no harm in taking your time in making decisions that could have a lasting consequences. Go for a walk, take a bath, take your time.

How to End Cell Phone Addiction
Are you salivating at the chance to pre-purchase the new Iphone 3Gs? Then you may be a techno-junkie. You need to stop the profiteering rape of your wallet NOW!!
Step 1
We have all fell victim to techno-addiction, an addiction to keeping in touch at all costs. Is this really necessary. The internet is a blessing and so is keeping in touch through email, cell phone and instant messaging, but it is becoming an addiction. The smart phones have truly amplified our ability to send and receive timely information but it is not necessary to constantly have them charged and on as we have all come to rely on. The first step is to get a home phone. That way we have a second number and do not need to explicitly rely on having one voice mail and one source of communicative flow twenty-four seven.
Step 2
The next step is to remember the number. I know this sounds ridiculous but if we remember the number we will give it out. Also, it will began a series of savings. The home phone doesn't need all those extras like three-way calling and long distance, that what the cell phone is for but you do not need to have unlimited everything on the cell phone contract. With both being minimally used you will ultimately save money and sanity. Let the two work together and get your instant information from your computer's internet connection. Check it three times a day Step 3
This last step is the painful one, stop im and texting at once. Go one week without then reassess your needs. It is truly liberating mentally and financially. Do these steps and you will be blessed at peace and at rest.

We did a replay of our Morning Cruise-lite show due to the fact that my interviews all were occupied in meetings or workshops (funny but true). We spoke about how to live-lite in this time of recession. So we discussed how to monitor one’s electricity consumption effectively and lastly we touched on SAVING with a financial adviser.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.

How to Live a Simpler, Sweeter Life
With its cold weather, holidays and reflective mood, winter is the best time to simplify and reconnect to what really matters in life. And with the current economic situation, many of us are being forced to reexamine our lifestyles and commit to living lives that are smaller and more sustainable. The good news is the simplest lives are also the sweetest. Let these tips show you the way.
Step 1
Accept the truth that you only have a finite number of minutes on this Earth. Vow to respect and celebrate each one.
Step 2
Say yes to the things that excite and enliven you; say no to everything else.
Step 3
Stop seeing friends who make you feel depressed, confused, worried, anxious, exhausted or bad about yourself after you leave them.
Step 4
Unsubscribe to any email mailing list that you do not eagerly await.
Step 5
Aim for C's. Perfection is overrated and ambition is exhausting. Stop striving to rise above the crowd and instead assume a comfortable place as an average human being.
Step 6
Forgive all your mistakes, big and small.
Step 7
Take a breath or say a prayer before you eat anything.
Step 8
Walk around your block once a day and get to know your neighbors.
Step 9
Say what you mean and mean what you say. Choose your words carefully and bite your tongue when you get the urge to gossip, insult, yell or lie.
Step 10
Give yourself totally to the smallest of tasks. Whether shifting your car from first gear to second, unlocking your front door, pulling a bottle of lotion from the store shelves, listening to a friend talk or kissing your sweetie--be sure that you are completely yourself in every moment.

Kerry Johnson who joined us to speak about the Emerging Sounds Battle of the Band. This event has over the years created platforms for bands to further their musical careers including amongst others – Seether, Freshly Ground, Plush, 340ml, the Parlotones, Prime Circle, the Finkelsteins, Evolver.

How to Keep Your Hopes Up
As children, our hopes for life seem infinite. Anything and everything appears possible until—bit by bit, chip by chip—reality levels our sky-high visions. We see that things don't pan out as planned and to protect ourselves from the hideous truth that "life is unfair," we extinguish our burning desires and follow the advice of those who warn, "Don't get your hopes up." But what is life without hope? Without hope we are simply going through the motions, surrendering to fate and turning our backs on possibility. Without hope we might as well just be waiting for death. It is my hope that this article inspires you to reclaim your childlike wonder and embrace that innocent belief that wishes do come true. Here's to the power of high hopes!
Step 1
Trust that you are incredible. You are more beautiful, more powerful, more capable, more resilient, more ideal, more loved than your doubtful, self-conscious, puny human mind can truly comprehend. And you are more beautiful, powerful, capable, resilient, ideal and loved than the judgmental, self-absorbed puny human minds of the people around you will ever understand. Don't let your mind deconstruct your hope until it exists no more. Don't let the actions or words of others discourage your hopeful pursuits. I assure you--regardless of what happened in your past, regardless of your current situation, regardless of what you believe your future will be--you are incredible. There is no reason that your hopes cannot come true.
Step 2
Look for signs that hope is alive. You don't need to look far. Right now, you are breathing in a gas that is perfectly suited to power your life: Oxygen! Isn't that proof enough that the world is on your side?
Step 3
Understand the difference between being a hopeful creature and being a control freak. A control freak insists that every detail of life unfolds exactly as he or she envisions. A hopeful creature allows life's beauty to reveal itself in its own mysterious way. A control freak sweats the small stuff, while a hopeful creature embraces the big picture.
Step 4
Put disappointment in perspective. Hope is not about eliminating life's ups and downs altogether. Hope is about believing that, despite these ups and downs, everything is going to be alright.
Step 5
Never let fear drive your decisions. Think hopeful thoughts. Act from inspiration. Don't let fear of looking stupid, fear of not reaching your goals, fear of being let down or any other kind of fear keep you from believing in or acting on your hopes.
Step 6
Surround yourself with hopeful people. Misery may love company, but hope absolutely needs it.
Step 7
Be your own fairy godmother. Don’t wait for miracles to give you a reason to be hopeful. Instead, make your hopes reality through dedication and hard work. The more you take action, the more success you will see, and the more success you see, the more hopeful you will become, and the more hopeful you become, the more eager you’ll be to take action. It’s a hopeful merry-go-round you won’t want to hop off.

How to Enjoy Your Own Company
Are you afraid to spend time alone and will you do anything to avoid it? If you are constantly avoiding alone time, here are some things to think about that just might help in setting you free.
Step 1
Is doing “anything” better than being alone?-If doing anything feels better than being alone, you need to deal with this issue, because doing “anything” is not better than being alone. -When we run from something (being alone), the focus remains on the running and not what we are doing.
Step 2
Do you feel anxious when faced with the prospect of being alone?--The feeling of anxiety lets us know that the feelings we are running from are beginning to rise to the surface; that’s what happens when we spend time alone.-You will always feel anxious when you enter unknown territory. You are used to being distracted. When you are alone, many of those familiar distractions are removed; as a result, you will initially feel anxious.
Step 3
You must face your fears or you will always be running.-Running becomes very tedious, very tiring. The only way you will ever be able to stop running, is to turn around and invite the demons in. -When you face your fears and refuse to run, the chase stops!
Step 4
Spending time alone is the ONLY way to really know your SELF.-It is only in the quiet moments that we are able to KNOW the depths of who we really are. -Can you not answer your cell, turn the TV off, and sit quietly? -Can you bear the anxiety that comes from not being distracted? If you can, you will be rewarded with an expanded sense of Self.
Step 5
Enjoying your own company is the reward.-To be able to have a solid sense of Self - whether you are with people or alone - is what you want to happen. -There is NOTHING better than enjoying your own company!!!

How to Live Within Your Budget

Step 1
List all of your expenses, savings and income from the past year. Use your checkbook register, credit card receipts and bills to do this.
Step 2
Determine, as accurately as possible, what expenses you expect to have for the next year. You can project expenses for a shorter period, such as the next three months, then multiply by four for yearly expenses.
Step 3
Enter this information into a ledger or computer-based financial program to accurately track your income and expenses.
Step 4
Determine what you can reasonably afford to spend each month and then track how well you are doing by entering actual expenses into the ledger or computer program.
Step 5
If you find that you are spending less than you had anticipated, you may want to put more money in your savings account to help out with unexpected expenses.
Step 6
If you find that you are spending more than anticipated, try identifying the items you really don't need (new clothes, CDs, expensive dinners) and avoid purchasing them until you are back within your budget.

Members of Nicotine Anonymous, Evelyn Nangle and Edmond.
Something for all the smoke/nicotine addicts out there. This morning at 10.35am I was a subject of nicotine addiction counseling. Yip, that’s right.
My findings is that I have a medium level of addiction and having chest problems since I’ve been knee high could be due to the fact that as a young kid I was exposed to secondhand smoke. I also found that nicotine addiction is harder let go than heroine and cocaine. I was joined by Edmond (surname will remain anonymous) who is currently fighting his addiction. He shared with us how he found that smoking was in fact escapism. He smoked to avoid life, life’s challenges etc. So this is definitely something to ponder. Next time you light up ask yourself, “What am I doing?”, “Why am I doing this?”, “Am I avoiding something?’. It is true that smoking can relax you it’s an upper and a downer, get you going (moving) and assist with weight lost due to the stimulant that exists within. That stimulant is the very thing that is dangerous. Smoking like other lethal drugs can affect your mood and essentially affect your life. Smoking can even be dangerous for women who want to get pregnant.
Ways that assist with stopping a crave is changing your lifestyle, attend support groups, breathing really deeply for 4minutes, exercise, get busy and try to avoid being inactive. To find out more about Nicotine anonymous contact 021 790 7779

1. Step 1
Be supportive. Everyone reacts differently to losing a job. Your spouse may have been fired due to poor performance, or the company had to downsize. There will be some emotions associated with the layoff--but not everyone wants to discuss it. If your spouse doesn't want to talk, don't force it. Let your spouse know that you're on his/her side, and you will help however you can. Some spouses want too much help though, so you'll need to set boundaries ahead to let him/her know that you're here, but you can only do so much.
2. Step 2
Express your needs. While your spouse may clam up, let him/her know that it’s OK if they don't want to talk, but do say what you need. If you expect them to pick up around the house more, ask that your spouse do that. Think about what you need from your spouse, whether it’s taking over laundry duty, handling the kids’ transportation or simply giving you more time to yourself. Do you want to spend more time with your spouse? Let him/her know that. Some spouses may need rules, depending on whether or not they tend to get lazy or complain about the situation a lot. Put everything you need on the table in a loving way and work on compromises.
3. Step 3
Determine your spouse’s needs. The best way to do this is to ask, “What do you need from me?” Men have a tendency to not want to be reminded of things repeatedly. Women may want their spouses to ensure time is spent with children even though they serve as primary caretaker. It’s important to state your needs and gently ask your partner how you can make this easy on the both of you.
4. Step 4
Go over your finances together. Express to your spouse that you will need to go over finances, since a layoff can minimize income. This is a smart idea because you’ll need to work together to get through the hard times--and by asking nicely and showing your spouse that this will benefit him/her, too--you can feel more secure.
5. Step 5
Remember, it’s only temporary. Most spouses will return to work not only for their own well-being, but because they know you probably rely on their income or benefits. Surviving a layoff can be tough, but hard times are only temporary. The best thing you can do in this situation is be gentle with your partner and act like a partner, giving support at the same time.

Beethoven was the first composer who never had an official court position, thus the first known freelance musician. Born in 1770, he grew up poor, but published his first work at age 12. By age 20 he was famous. He often sold the same score to six or seven different publishers simultaneously, and demanded unreasonably large fees for the simplest work. He was short, stocky, dressed badly, didn't like to bath, lived in squalor, used crude language, openly conducted affairs with married women, and had syphilis. Beethoven was deaf when he composed his Ninth Symphony.
How to Celebrate Women's Day

The Russians started International Women's Day in 1909, and they're still the premier celebrators of the March 8 holiday. Around the world, the event is a way to honor women's contributions to history. But in Russia, the festivities go a step further - men and boys are expected to bestow presents on all the women in their lives.
Step 1
Think about the women, living and dead, who have helped shape your life. Do something they (or at least a few of them) would have liked.
Step 2
Consider cooking their favorite food, planting their favorite flowers in your garden or sending a check to their favorite charity.
Step 3
Tell your children about the women you admire most. Talk about both the ones you've known personally and those you've only read about in books.
Step 4
Tour an art museum near you and pay special attention to the work of female artists. Or visit the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C.
Step 5
Have a party and invite all the women you never get to spend enough time with.
Step 6
Shower the women in your life with wonderful gifts (if you're a man).
Step 7
Accept graciously when the men in your life shower you with gifts (if you're a woman).

It has been widely documented that sedentary activities such as TV viewing, computer use, video game playing, and even reading contribute to obesity and overall poor health. However, it seems that not all sedentary activities are equally harmful. According to a recent study monitoring both obese and normal weight children and their choices of sedentary activities, those who watched the most TV tended to have the highest blood pressure readings. Other activities, such as computer use, were not linked to similar blood pressure hikes. Experts believe that the elevated blood pressure levels may be the result of sleep disruptions as well as unhealthy snacking behaviors associated with TV viewing.

How to Check Radiator Hoses

Old radiator hoses or loose clamps can cause a coolant leak, which will lead to overheating and expensive repairs. Check hoses periodically and replace them if they're aged or leaking.

Walk around the front of the car. Find the hood latch. The hood latch is usually located at the front edge of the hood. Depress the latch. While depressing the latch, lift and open the hood.
Locate the radiator. It's always at the front of the car.

Locate the radiator hoses. Two hoses should be attached to the radiator: an upper hose at the top and a lower hose at the bottom.

With the engine cold, squeeze each hose. If the hose feels "crunchy" or brittle, it's old and needs replacing.

Check the clamps at either end of both hoses. If the hose is damp or wet at the clamp, tighten or replace the clamp. The clamps should be tight enough that the hose cannot be turned or moved.
Check the hose for cracks, tears, or frayed ends. If you find any, replace the hose.

Close the hood.

Find out where woman go when cheated on and about the dynamics of relationships between men and woman

In which ocean is Robben Island.
Answer: Atlantic

Completing a traditional marathon means running a staggering 26.2 mi (42 km), but each year, more than 70,000 runners worldwide tackle an even greater challenge—the ultramarathon. Ultramarathons are races that require competitors to run hundreds, sometimes thousands of miles, often while facing severe conditions like inclement weather, changes in elevation, or rugged terrain. Events can last mere hours or span several days.

How to Protect Your Home when Guests With Small Children Visit

Shut the doors to rooms that you do not want the kids entering. This creates barriers that you can then enforce by telling the children politely but firmly not to enter. Should you discover them opening any of these doors, you are perfectly within your rights to raise this directly with the parents. Remind them you are happy for their children to enter those parts of the house that you have left open.
Put away DVDs and CDs. These are easy to break and are attractive to children of all ages. If you have children's DVDs and you do not mind the children sitting in the TV area, make them available by having them pre-loaded in your DVD player. Just let them look at the covers and choose what they want to watch from those.
Ensure that any eating occurs away from areas that can be impacted by stains. If this means leaving the living room to go to the dining room for snacks and afternoon tea, then this may well have to be the price that is paid for your sanity. Alternatively, you might like to set up a children's corner in your living room, covered by a blanket to create a boundary.
Ensure that the parents are actively parenting. Sometimes parents are so relieved to think someone is else is looking out for their kids that they forget to stay vigilant themselves. Gently remind them that you aren't very good with kids and that your house is not very child-proofed. Also add that it would be appreciated if the parents could take care in keeping an eye out for possible dangers to their kids around the house.
Be flexible. We were all kids once. Sometimes we have to let go and just accept what kids do. And move on to the stain manual afterwards. There are some great wikiHows under cleaning to help you.

How to Reduce Bad Stress and Use it in a Positive Manner
You can turn bad stress into something positive, to energize your life and advance your goals. Just follow these steps.
Step 1
Exercise can help you turn bad stress inside out. Going to the gym, running outside, swimming, and tennis are just a few activities you can use to reduce stress in your life.
Step 2
Reconnect with nature by going for a walk by the ocean, in the forest, through a park or some other restful locale. You will feel refreshed and ready to handle things with a clear mind.
Step 3
Talk to someone about the stresses you feel. By talking you can release your worries or anger, and put them to the side. This will allow you to free up space in your thoughts for positive ones. Ask a friend or a family member if they can listen to you when you are stressed. It can work wonders!
Step 4
Go to a yoga class or get a massage. Both of these practices involve deep breathing and can reduce stress and release tension. A massage will loosen up your tight, tense muscles, leaving you feeling refreshed.
Step 5
Take a break. Get outdoors or go on a vacation. You might be feeling burnt out and a holiday can get rid of any lingering stress.

Our Golden cloud competition rolled over from Friday to this week. With x3 hampers up for grabs, listeners were acting fast. Today’s lucky winner was Bernina Hesselman, she walks away with a fabulous Golden Cloud hamper worth R500.00. With two more hampers to give away the competitions will continue tomorrow and Friday.

We played an interview I done with Dr John Steer, ENT surgeon. He joined us to warn us of the dangers of our excessive use of mp3 players etc, well more specifically, our daily use of earphones. If you were sitting next to someone on the bus or train listening to music through earphones and you can hear their music, you best want to tap them on the shoulder and remind them of the fear of hearing loss. You might find yourself at the age of 30yrs with the hearing ability of an 80yr old.

Lastly we were joined by Dr Ina Diener. She joined us to discuss the different causes of headaches and how physiotherapy can relief headaches.
