South Africa celebrates Heritage day tomorrow and here's what some organisations have planned

In medieval times, left-handed people could not become knights because it was thought that they were descendants of the devil, it is said. Spiral staircases in castles ran clockwise to allow knights – all right-handed – to battle intruders effectively. 13% of people are left-handed, up from 11% a few decades ago. The story that right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people is a myth.
Animals also are either right-handed or left-handed. Polar bears are left-handed – and so is Kermit the Frog.
Name the three South African cities were voted amongst the world's top 100 Most Liveable Cities in a study conducted by
Mercer Human Resource Consulting.
A – Nelspruit, Springbok & Cape Town
B – Cape Town, Johannesburg & Port Elizabeth
C – New York, Paris & China
Answer: B - Cape Town was ranked in 85th place, Johannesburg 90th and Port Elizabeth 97th.

Today’s Inspiration of the day
Questions that will free your mind
Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?
What are you most grateful for?
Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first?
Has your greatest fear ever come true?
Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?
What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?

Defeat is not defeat unless accepted as a reality-in your own mind.- Bruce Lee
That’s it for the Morning Cruise, where we cruise through your weekday here on BushRadio 89.5fm live on your stereo between 9am – 12pm with me Denisia Adams. Take Care ... make the best of your day and Keep the Faith. Stay Real!!!!!!!!!!
