Strand beach, Full of people this weekend.

Sometimes you think because February is the last month of summer it would be less full on beaches and the summer feeling or whatever you call it might be gone. But not here. Strand beach was full of people. Strange enough even somerset west’s traffic was stuck but that was because of celine dion playing at Vergelegen.

There used to be a little bridge here, well not exactly a bridge but a small, well wooden bridge. But lately people have been neglecting the Strand beach in Helderberg. Still make a nice photo. I tried to make it a bit more photographic but that did not work.

Driving with your phone should be legal

In many countries driving with your phone is illegal. Now i think that is pretty crazy.

Here is why.

Lets say you drive and you have your phone in your hand and 50% of your brain is focussing on where you are driving. That means there is 50% consentration on the road which is not that bad considering you are a busy person. That also means you have the rest of your consentration to go on chatting.

BUT

Lets say you drive and you have your phone in your hand, but this time it’s illegal to drive and phone at the same time. So you have to split your consentration three ways. You have to focus on not getting caught which drives up your nervousness increasing your chances of doing something wrong, you have to then split the other 50% in TWO parts one of driving and one for using the phone.

NOW

Lets see which one is more dangerous.

Having two places to consentrate? Or three?

I thought so.

Add link – Jayde.com

Jayde.com is another place you can submit your site. Maybe not just another DMOZ but its another place to get a backlink to your site or blog. Jayde looks more like a business directory, just had a quick scan. I have not submitted my site to this directory but its worth sharing. I guess. It looks as it its quick to add your site. so i am adding my site to while i write. Jayde

Add link – DMOZ

Dmoz is a crap directory. Although people claim it pushes up your searches on google i dont actually think this is true. Dmoz is another one of those useless directories you can add your link to. They might not ever add your link to the directory but everyone else except me says it works. So for the first “Add link” post check out Dmoz

No true

Well my comments has been blocked for some time now. I am getting kind of annoyed with Akismet. I dont see how they are removing my comments from spam, even though a lot of people have unmarked my comments as spam, it’s still blocked.

I am not one for revenge but this is annoying me so much.
