RIP Mandiba

"Man's goodness is a flame that can be hidden but never extinguished."

"Do not judge me by my successes.  Judge me by how many times I fell down and got up again."

"I learnt that courage is not the absence of fear but the triumph over it."

"If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy.  Then he becomes your partner."

"Social equality is the only basis of human happiness."

"While poverty persists,there is no true freedom."

"For to be free is not merely to cast off ones chains, but to live in a way the respects and enhances the freedom of others."


  1. He was a great man. Nelson Mandela will be remembered for his legacy of uniting South Africa that was torn apart by war and for all that he stood for.

    May he rest in peace.

  2. Hi Wendy, to answer your question, why doesn't the mamas feed them?
    We have dairy cows and to make sure that the baby calves gets enough colestrum milk to give them a good immune system, we milk the mama and feed the milk to the baby from a bottle with a nipple. It's difficult to tell if they nurse enough from the mama.

    The calves are kept with the mama for a few days and then she goes with the herd and the baby goes in the calf nursery to be taken care of by me.
    Some calves will nurse on the mama for a couple of days and some others won't.

    1. Thanks Julia. What a big job you have!

  3. As the years go by and we look at Nelson Mandela , we will see more and more what a great man he was.

  4. He was a great thinker and even greater doer.
