Flying Pickets - Only You

Boer-in-Ballingskap het my op die skaakwebsite....gese van die liedjie....en hy is een van my gunstelinge...ek moes hom net gou blog! ...........ja ons twee speel nou deesdae gereeld skaak...en hy het my vandag gewen! -ek het hom die ander gewen...maar ek dink hy steek bietjie weg...hy gaan seker nou sy ware kleure begin toon!!! Hy het selfs iemand van Finland gewen...dit wys jou nou....hy het net gemaak of hy lanklaas gespeel het!!

And this one!?

And...what about this video!

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn!
Look to this Day!
For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and Realities of your Existence.
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And To-morrow is only a Vision;
But To-day well lived makes
Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!

I'd read a speech of a Director General of the Department of Internal Affairs in SA one day...and this was part of his speech!


  1. Hi Nikita,
    This is a great blog! And great post too especially the speech. Though I couldn't understand the first language. What is it?

    So you too are a chess lover and player, like me. Saw that world youth chess championship ad on your blog. So are you going to play?

    Thanks for dropping by my blog and posting that comment! I'll keep reading your blog...

  2. Hi Meghna! Thanks for dropping by...the first Language is Afrikaans...follow the "Moth" link...there is a link to where Afrikaans originates...enjoy! Yes, I love chess and I'm not going to play at the world youth championships...just and advert...I would like to follow it though...kind of a reminder for myself too....do you play chess online? I can tell you where to find me online and we can play together! :)

  3. Hello Chessalee, I think after the last video, I understand why you love chess ;-)
    PS: I observe that this blog works fine in Firefox and not very well in Opera...

  4. Hi Claude! Nice to see you around again!! yep...very romantic sport...isn't it!! :))

  5. ;) I enjoyed this film's piece thanks to you. The actors are very nice...

  6. Hi Claude...yep...they are good...Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway...:)

  7. Nikita, ek het REGTIG lanklaas gespeel! Dankie dat jy my skaaksvermoeens bemark! ;)
    Ek's bly jy't van FP gehou. Het eenkeer vir hulle in die Staatsteater gaan kyk en het ook 3 CD's van hulle. Nou het jy my voorgespring om "Only You" te post!
    Ander videos in hierdie inskrywing ook baie nice! Hoekom praat McQueen en Dunaway nie Engels nie?

  8. Hi Boer...jammer dat ek jou voorgespring het! Jy kan hulle ook blog..ek sal nie vir jou kwaad wees nie! :)) Ek weet nie hoekom hulle Frans in die film praat nie, moet nog bietjie die film se agtergrond nalees...en moet jouself nie onderskat met die skaak nie!! :))
