Monday update

Had a great weekend with friends. Also watched a couple of DVDs: The City of Ember, Star Trek and XXX. I liked the City of Ember quite a lot, and posted the DVD to Baby after I watched it. ( It is a kiddie movie!). I was also happy to find out that the film is based in the first in a series of books by Jeanne DuPrau. I'm sure Baby will enjoy the books.

Also worked in my garden. My cucumber crop is huge, and much more than I would ever want to eat. So I gave away a lot of it to friends and neighbours. Yum!

Anyhoo, today was kinda slow but productive. A big discussion that I found interesting today was on Jacob Zuma's new love child ( baby is 4-months old now) and the question of whether Zuma's sexual conduct undermines HIV prevention campaigns in this country. I mean, if the man made a woman he's not married to pregnant, clearly he's not using protection ( condoms) outside his marital circle. Which means that in theory, he could infection his wives with HIV. Scary thought that....

Also checking traffic reports for sites, as it's month end. It's that time of the month when I have to do client reports. Joy:-(

And lastly, please nominate the phenomenal woman over at Female2female.
"We are looking for a Phenomenal Women. We all have women in our lives who have achieved something phenomenal or have impacted our lives in a phenomenal way – our aim is to honour those women," says Laura.

I can't say I approve of Zuma's love child, if the story is true, but it is his private life we are talking about. It is difficult to know what should be public knowledge and what not, the poor kid will have a tough life!

you're so right. the problem, as you say, is that the child is the one who pays ultimately.

I loved the new Star Trek. Hated XXX and had not heard of The City of Ember.

I guess it's up to JZ if he wants to sleep around and impregnate women he isn't married to (does he not get enough from the five wives?), but it just doesn't seem responsible. And responsibility is something I'd like to see in any president.
