Pool Nets And Covers - Water Safety

Image
Whenever we hear of people drowning in swimming pools we feel devastated for those affected by it, especially when it’s a child. I recently read a story on Facebook about such a tragic drowning related by a father. They were just distracted for a moment. Then his son asked where his younger brother was and it ended up with the horror of finding him drowned in the swimming pool. I can’t even begin to imagine how that family felt after that tragic accident. Something like that probably fills them with regret for the rest of their lives. If only!

Water safety is of utmost importance. This is a profound statement that should never be taken lightly.

Global Nets & Covers manufacture and install pool covers that protect kids that can't swim and offer considerable savings to you in terms of running costs and pool maintenance. They install pool covers in many shapes and sizes to clients' satisfaction.

There is a video where a child manages to climb on the fence surrounding the pool…

The Anatomy of a Safety Shoe

Image
The Anatomy of a Safety Shoe Safety shoes and safety boots are in a league of their own. Their primary purpose is to allow you to be comfortable while being productive in the workplace and protected at the same time.

When I look at the magnificent range of protective footwear in the BOVA catalogue on the Workmaster website I can get a pretty good picture of how complex these shoes are and how packed they are with features that benefit the wearer.

Starting at the top of the list let’s inspect the pedigree of these safety shoes.

Choose Maret Pro Lab For Photographs

Image
Last year I was commissioned by Maret Pro Lab to take photographs of a school concert. I immediately agreed since they were my client and needed assistance. I must say that I was a bit nervous because their photography is of an exceptionally high standard and I didn't want to disappoint them.
Well, the evening came and I pitched up at the venue rather early to reconnoitre the place and take a few test shots to get my camera ready. Once things start happening there's no time to fiddle with camera settings. It was quite a difficult assignment because I had to take as many photographs of the kids as I could during each session but the parents preferred individual shots of their children.
The lady in charge had rented a huge backdrop and the kids were outstanding in their performances with the most colourful costumes I've seen in a long time. It was the most professional performance for children so young. Once everything started I had a small window of opportunity to take my …

Chiropractor Checkup 2019

Image
Chiropractor Checkup 2019 I want to be healthier in 2019. This may be your New Year's resolution for 2019. It certainly is mine.
To get me through the year I definitely want to be healthy so that I can enjoy life and be able to do my work and have a good time when I'm off duty.
Recently (last year in December), I woke up on a Sunday morning and was drunk and my head was spinning. When I walked to the bathroom I struggled to keep my balance. As I turned around to sit I fell over backward and almost landed in the bath.
This continued for about 3 - 4 weeks and it really worried me. When I walked away from people I was still struggling with my balance and must have looked like I was tipsy.
Fortunately, it cleared up eventually.
The point is that something like that can just pop up out of nowhere and it seems as if your health has taken a turn for the worst. That's why my New Year's resolution is to be healthier and look after myself. I'm sure you wish the same for you…

Race Into 2019

Image
It’s 2019 and the start of a brand new year. I’m going to be telling you a bit about where I’m located and a few interesting facts about the place.
If you jet in from somewhere else in the world to this part of Southern Africa you would be landing at OR Tambo International Airport. As you set foot on the ground you would be in the city of Kempton Park. This would be the doorway to the financial hub of Johannesburg.
Kempton Park originally came from two large farms, Zuurfontein and Rietfontein, that were divided and developed over the years. To the north lies Tembisa and beyond that Pretoria, the capital of the Republic of South Africa.
What is Kempton Park famous for? World Trade Centre, which adjoins the airport, was the venue for multi-party CODESA negotiations to end the apartheid system through the country's first multi-racial elections. Famous and successful people were born and bred in Kempton Park. A golfer, actors, and a whole host of talented individuals have their roots …
