My all time favorite U.S. General ahead of Patton (who had some flaws) and one of my favorite Presidents (and I don’t give a damn what they say about the corruption (which is NOTHING compared to what we have now).

What a MAN. What an inspiration. I can truly relate to him.

In 2004 I made a PILGRIMAGE to his tomb in New York. What a beautiful monument in a magnificent setting. I need to go back again.

I paid the ULTIMATE HONOR that I bestow on my heroes. I named a Golden after him. My Ulysses.


Grant’s tomb — which is NOT empty.


The OTHER Ulysses who like his namesake was one impressive piece of work. 2001 to 2013. Taken in 2013 when he was fully 12-years old. Very fit dog.

Where is Nelson Mandela’s body?
Dec. 12, 2013.


Mystery deepens.

You would think that there would be ONE official picture.

Don’t get it.

Trust me. I have a nose for such matters. Something is amiss.

We have seen the bodies of plenty of heads-of-state and popes at their funeral.

I come from a culture where the body is invariably on show
— typically properly embalmed given the heat.

Yes, it is ‘Spring’ in South Africa.
I think, as with the fake interpreter, they screwed up.
That would not be unusual for them.
They are good at that and have lots of practice.

CBS News. At least tells us what the body ‘looks’ like. Click to access.

When ‘The Telegraph’ doesn’t show me the body I get WORRIED. Click to access. There is an embedded video.

Well if you hide the pictures there are bound to be FAKES. Click to access.

BBC coverage on YouTube. Click to access video. Still no images of body. SCARY.


Where Is Nelson Mandela’s Body? I Have Yet To See It? I Haven’t Even Seen The Casket. What Is The Deal Here?

CNN, which always appears to have trouble covering important overseas events,
has managed to set a new sorry, abysmal record for ineptitude
with the Mandela coverage.

I watch at least two hours of CNN every day,
from around 8:20 to 9:20 and then at night between 7 and 8.
So, I always catch the 9 a.m. news.

I have yet to see Mandela’s body.

I NEED to see Mandela’s body.

I can’t even find it on Google News.

What is the deal here.

I even checked the BBC.

Something is awry. I don’t like it.

Click to access. Some good pictures. But NONE of the body.

Click to access. Some good pictures. But NONE of the body.

 I am so fed up hearing about the damn, duplicitous
‘fake’ interpreter.

What is the BIG deal here? We are talking about South Africa?

Yes, given that I follow all Test playing countries and I do know a few South Africans, I know a bit more about S. A. than most.

How many of YOU actually have even heard of the current S.A. president, the ANC Jacob ‘the polygamist’ Zuma, the rape allegations and how he paid 10 cows for a child bride?

That is South Africa.

There are three (3) words that have always helped me understand Africans — including the Kenyan Barack Hussein Obama II, the disgraceful president of the U.S. of A.

Those three words are:
Munda Logic‘ &
Eysenck.

When you are familiar with Eysenck and ‘Munda Logic’, fake interpreters, Obama’s (yet more stupidity) ‘selfie at funeral‘ or Obama’s FRAUD when it comes to ObamaCare are all easy to rationalize and reconcile. Basically it is par for the course. That is how they do things.

But, that I can’t see Mandela’s body bothers me.

Enough said.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. A Hero Of All Times. A Personal Inspiration To Me. A Great, Great Man.

I have been dreading this day for months.

I saw it on the news just after 6 p.m.
while dealing with more bullying at Alton Central School (ACS).
Though I was distracted and distraught about this
never ending bullying at ACS
seeing this on TV stopped me in my tracks.
I immediately had a knot in my stomach.

I knew that a very important part of my life had come to an end.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela
will always be with me
… in my mind, in my actions and in terms of what inspires me.

Thank YOU Mr, Mandela for all you did for ME.

I would be in even worse shape if not for YOUR inspiration and example.

I have cried openly for Nelson many times.

I wept the day he was released from prison.

I cried when he was sworn in as President.

I have yet to cry ‘today’.

I don’t think it has sunk in today.

I think the tears will come when I see the body.

Have YOU Heard About New Orleans’ Ray Nagin’s Travails? Amazing.
