Patience Is A Virtue…….

  • Patience: what you have when there are too many witnesses
  • Everything comes to him who waits… except a loaned book.
  • Before you marry a person, you should first make them use a computer with slow internet service to see who they really are.
  • I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end.
  • I need to develop some patience — immediately.
  • Patience: The quality you admire in the driver behind you but can’t stand in the driver who’s in front of you.
  • Patience: A minor form of despair, disguised as a virtue.
  • I am patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it.

Louis Trichardt Is Still Louis Trichardt

The Makhado Municipality’s continued attempts to have the name of Louis Trichardt changed to that of Makhado was dealt another expensive blow to the local taxpayers.At 11:20 this morning, the North Gauteng High Court found in favour of the Chairpersons’ Association (CA) against the Makhado Municipality’s application for a rescission of the 30 October 2014 High Court judgement. According to this judgement, Louis Trichardt was to remain Louis Trichardt after the court set aside the decision of the former Minister of Arts and Culture, Mr Paul Mashatile, to approve the recommendation of the South African Geographical Names Council (SAGNC) to change the name of the town Louis Trichardt to Makhado. At that stage, the attorney of Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa, Ms Doris Tshepe, confirmed that the minister had conceded the review and consented to the order to set aside the decision.

Despite this, the Makhado Municipality brought an application for a rescission of the above judgement. Judge Neil Tuchten, however, dismissed the municipality’s application this morning. “This was as a results of, inter alia, their [the municipality’s] dishonesty in their affidavits presented to the court,” said CA chairperson Mr André Naudé. As a result, the High Court punished the Makhado Municipality with a special punitive cost order on an attorney-to-client basis.

Who knew?

The Bowl of Hygieia is one of the symbols of pharmacy. Hygieia was the Greek goddess of hygiene, and the daughter of Asclepius. Asclepius’ symbol is his rod, with a snake twined around it; correspondingly, Hygieia’s symbol is a cup or chalice with a snake twined around its stem and poised above it.
