Ten of the Best #53

Hey hey hey everyone. I’ve been away in the mountains this week, and hardly had any time on social media. So that means I may have missed something important, or funny, or entertaining. If you think so, leave me a comment, or a link in the comments, and I’ll take a look. Who knows, it may feature next week?

But in the meantime, here is what I did see on all your timelines, feeds and just in general on social media this week, so you can catch up before the weekend catches you.

Hope you find something you enjoy watching/reading, and that it starts your weekend off on the right note.

Let’s begin with a update on the State of our Nation - a summary - the ANC, Hlaudi, SABC, everything (except Oscar Pistorius, who got a six year sentence - ain't that outrageous?) as seen by Richard Poplak in the Daily Maverick. (Click the picture for the article.)

Like that? Then you need to sign the petition to keep the SABC free. Here it is.

Continuing the theme of roundups, here’s Britain’s Completely Bat#$%^ Week Since Brexit, Explained For Americans and the rest of the world.

Speaking of Brexit, don’t you love this safety pin idea? About time. Every week  day we get a new reason to demonstrate…

In happier news, Matisse is coming to the Standard Bank Gallery in Johannesburg. Isn't that exciting? Details here.

A book list for you:The best recent crime novels - from The Guardian. I haven't read any of these, and I know how many of you trawl my blog for good book recommendations. Take a look. Let me know if you’ve read any? Are they any good?

Are you struggling to read at night? Or at any time? Maybe this is why? 

This is lovely - Students give their retiring teacher a surprise 

Too big to park, too rich to care, Tom Eaton is ranting about the SUVs and their owners’ bad behaviour.

Big dogs who think they’re lap dogs…

And lastly, Nandos go BEE…G and manage to talk about a number of issues in a very short ad. Clever. As usual.

Have a happy weekend, and in case you missed it, here's last week's post.

And here are some more tens.
