Mhangwana Commercial & Financial Accountants are celebrating 21 years of accounting service.
I've been involved with Mhangwana Commercial and Financial Accountants for a few months now and have seen their commitment to their profession as accountants in Kempton Park. They are thorough in their work and hardworking as well. They recently held a workshop for their clients and went to great trouble to explain their accounting and skills transfer to everyone present. Below is a summary of what transpired at the workshop.

50 Years of Okinawan Goju Ryu in SA

Image
50 years on a good reason to celebrate.

Five decades have passed since Okinawan Goju Ryu was introduced to South Africa by a remarkable man, sensei James Rousseau.  His journey through this period has created a wake of profound energy, immense interest in what he nurtured and a legacy that has crossed boundries, spilling over into branches that today continue to practice some form of what he brought to this country.

Today we look back at all that has gone before and stand proudly beneath the great tree that has grown from the tiny seed planted in 1966 when sensei James established himself in South Africa as the founder of Okinawan Goju Ryu with the grade of Sandan.

Sensei James began his karate training in the Shotokan system in 1961 and received Shodan ranking in 1964. During one of his trips to Japan he became acquainted with Goju Ryu and decided to concentrate his training in this system.  He relates many interesting experiences, crediting his wife Wendy for her supportive role, a…

Charlotte Roth, the author of Dancing Queen, sent me the following email:



So excited to share this news with you... 
I'm so very honored and excited to be participating in the National Eating Disorder Association chat, the #NEDAChat today at 2 PM ET. We'll be discussing body awareness and eating disorders. I was invited because of my book, Dancing Queen--a witty and warm story about "Fat Fiona" who finally, at the age of thirty-five, sets out to prove to the world, her mom, and herself that every body can be a dancer's body.

I believe this is such an important topic since, sadly, so many of us have, if not an eating disorder then what I call a body awareness disorder. We need to fall back in love with our bodies.

I'm giving away my book for free to help raise awareness, to give people a good laugh and something to think about. Click on the link below the image of Dancing Queen to get the book.

You can read more about my thoughts about body awareness and why I wro…
