Hi, I was browsing on facebook and came across this photo:

dairy belle milk bottles

 

 

and decided to share with you an image of what milk bottles looked like in the late 70’s early 80’s when aunty GB was still at school and you could open your front door in the mornings to find fresh milk in glass bottles sealed with foil caps.

In a mission to find a clearer image through Google images I landed on this one and found that the winning bid on Bid or Buy was R75 two years ago. A bargain for the amount of memories which come with it. Including waking in the morning hours and hearing the gentle clink clink of the bottles as the milkman collected them.

I don’t smoke. I don’t drink alcohol, yeah I know boring.

I drink a lot of cooldrink, yes “sodas” with all that sugar. Yes it is addictive too.

A year ago I stopped drinking CocaCola and then I found that the watercooler at work was filthy inside and the water had bits of plastic in it so I went back to drinking cooldrink out of cans.

Many years ago I witness someone who was dependent and addicted to Grandpa Headache Powders. I realised that was a dangerous downhill addiction. This week I discovered that two female colleague I work with are addicted to Grandpa Headache Powders which they down with Coke. The one even admitted sniffing the Grandpa powder once with an acquaintance and swore never to do it again as it was unpleasant.

I found this result from my Google search Grandpa contains a combination of paracetamol, aspirin (both painkillers) and caffeine, which, loaded with extra caffeine from Coke gives the user a mildly euphoric feeling and a “lift”.

“Dependency on Grandpa is very dangerous,” says Ane Carelson, social worker and marketing manager for Elim Clinic, a drug rehabilitation centre in Kempton Park.

“An overdose of paracetamol causes a lot of damage to the liver and kidneys. You can develop ulcers.

“Some people are taking 10, maybe 15 a day, which can be lethal.”

Lesley Gore passes away.

Lesley Gore, whose No. 1 hit “It’s My Party” kicked off a successful singing career while she was still in high school, has died. She was 68. The follow-ups, “Judy’s Turn to Cry” and “She’s a Fool,” were in a similar teen-love vein, but Gore’s next hit, “You Don’t Own Me,” was something else entirely.

Jeweller Andreas Salver posted CCTV footage on YouTube of an armed robbery at Manufacturing Jeweler at Coachman’s Crossing shopping centre in Bryantson on 11 February.

The chilling footage shows a man and woman, pretending to be a couple, enter the store at around 10:30am. The woman enters second and keeps the door open until their accomplices appear.

The staff are rounded up and used to fill the robbers’ bags.

Salver told Netwerk24 just one of the items stolen was worth R400 000 alone. Source
