What about that guy “signing” for the delegation at Nelson Mandela’s Memorial service? He, Thamsanqa Jantjie, wasn’t signing at all according to the African association for the deaf. He ha since said he was hallucinating whilst he was signing; seems like the man is somewhat short of a pickle or two out of his jar. How very embarrassing for the officials too. Seems nobody knows where exactly the guy came from and who hired him. They are also now somewhat concerned about security issues. Bit late to be worried about security, anything could have happened. Look how close he is to Obama, the leader of one of the foremost nations, and there were other world leaders all around them.
There will be no blog on Saturday.
Another delightful sounding recipe for a party nibble. Right up my street anyway. Only problem I can see, I have never seen frozen artichoke hearts here. Mind you, I have never looked either. I will be now. People are being very inventive with the old artichoke and spinach dip which I always enjoy.
