PAIR WINE LIKE A PRO

There is a certain charm in serving wine at dinner parties and actually knowing that your pairings with each course will make the whole dining experience extravagant! Some serve any of their favorites or the local stores deal of the week, and then there are some that take extra care in selecting only the best wine to go with the flavors of the food. Of course if you only know that wine is red or white, it can be very intimidating to serve one. Do you serve it warm or cold? Is it strictly white wine with fish and red wine with red meat? At the end of this article you will understand that basic wine pairing knowledge can truly intensify the enjoyment of eating and it is quite exciting.

CATER TO THE HOLLOW: HELPING THE GRIEVING

Here are a few things that you can do for someone who is dealing with the loss of a loved one.

  • The simplest thing anyone can do is to just be there for them. Try to be a good listener and shoulder to cry on.
  • Do not be afraid to talk about the recently deceased. It is possible that what the grieving person needs is to talk about their loved one.
  • Check up on them regularly. Many people attend a funeral but how many of those attendees continue to show love and care after? Allow them space when they need it but always keep in contact.
  • Offer to take them out for coffee, a walk or even visit a few places that remind them of the late person. Such outings can make that person brave again. If they refuse the offer of going out simply offer to visit instead.
  • Do not be afraid to offer to cook or go shopping for them. Lifting these tasks from them will help make daily coping easier.

MAN IN THE BAND 

When asked if he had any advice for struggling bands and musicians, Brandon wrote a heartfelt message. “Don’t stop believin’. No, that’s not just a song by Journey but advice that I have never let myself forget. You need to believe that you can do anything, be confident and have faith in your band members. Your band or music team need to stick through the bad times and achieve what you set out to achieve. There will be colossal obstacles in your path but again, you have to believe that you have what it takes to overcome them. Do not stop believing.”

 

Brandon Cole, an inspiring individual who has so much zest and love for what he does, hopes you will attend his next show. Saturn Returns’ Marching to Valhalla can be found on the online store http://www.cdbaby.com. Do not forget to support our local artists and remember to support the man in the band.

HOW TO MAGICALLY MODIFY

You are thrilled! It is Friday and your best mates have invited you to check out an exclusive club. This is just what you need, you think to yourself. A text will confirm the time they will pick you up or where about the meeting spot is. Now all that is left for you to do is decide what to wear and that is when you begin to panic!

 

Now let us take that situation and travel back to the 1980’s. This was not even a situation back in the glam era. If you could not decide what to wear or afford a new outfit you grabbed something you had and cut it up, it did not even have to be an item that was extremely old! You folded it and scrunched it up, and held it all together with a safety pin. We could say that this trend was intensified from the late 1970’s. This was a time where clothes were spray painted, dyed with food colouring, studded, ripped; and all done in the bedroom of a sixteen-year-old.

REIGNS VERSUS “THE BEAST’

 

The WWE Championship was up for the taking at the main event of Wrestlemania 2015! Roman Reigns wasted no time attacking Brock Lesnar. Lesnar attacked right back and forced Reigns into the corner of the ring. Lesnar immediately performed a German suplex on Reigns followed by his signature move, F-5. It had not even been five minutes and the crowd was roaring.

IS THE SPIRIT OF UBUNTU LOST?

Angry South Africans have accused immigrants of taking away jobs and opportunities from them and this was the reason for the riots spreading in South Africa. The youth from the EFF and ANC Youth Leagues are demanding for statues to be taken down. If we stop hiding behind euphemisms we can begin to understand that this is not xenophobia, this is not “vandalism due to lack of transformation.” This is about hating our neighbor, about hating one another, this is racism.
