FRESH TOAST

A social mixup


BY LOUIS EKSTEEN

The world of social media causes interesting mixups. Personal and business lives are much closer these days than in a past when one's personal and business activities were easily differentiated. Today, most people have some sort of social mixup happening in their lives.

The easy aspect of the social mixup to avoid is inappropriate personal social behaviour that catches up with you. Many articles and posts have covered this topic. But to little or no avail. (Apart from an awkward personal and business social mixup, you need to avoid other social pitfalls as well.)

EXPRESSO

Happy holidays!

 

Live life to the full

BY KIM BROWNE

The other day, my kids were discussing their favourite holiday – for me it has always been December. I love having some decent time off, getting away from the humdrum of the regular routine and spending quality time with my immediate family. I may complain about the crowds – but really, I like the fact that others too are taking time off and spending it with their loved ones.

The lead-up to the holidays is also a special time that passes in a blur of activity. The intensity of exams is followed by frenzied shopping for all things Xmas and back-to school, seeing friends and family for the all important end-of-year celebrations and trying to get those urgent projects out, before our agency closes for the holidays. The day before we leave almost always ends in an all-nighter doing lastminute.com things. It’s become part of our tradition.

ON THE FLIPSIDE

'Tis the season for giving

World Aids Day is on Monday 01 December and the Hearts of Hope children’s home will be having an open day on both Sunday and Monday to show how they are enabling social change and dealing with HIV and AIDS in South Africa. Hearts of Hope is a self-funded non-profit organisation. Help invest in the future of our children and give now.

THE BOTTOM LINE Recent work

Twisted Toast Digital developed a unique new identity for the wildlife experience Karoo farm developed by Wiaan van der Linde. Karreekloof is a wonderful new development aimed at ensuring the protection and cultivation of South African game. The secretary bird with its remarkable character symbolises the best South Africa has to offer.

DID YOU KNOW?



Auld Lang Syne has been called the most familiar song to which nobody knows the words. But this year, you will! Written by Robert Burns and first published after his death in 1796, the song became an instant standard in 1929 when Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians played it on New Year’s Eve, broadcasting from the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. The title literally means, “Old Long Time.” Roughly translated, here are the words:

Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind? Should old acquaintance be forgot, and days of auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne. We’ll take a cup of kindness yet, for days of auld lang syne.

We two have run around the hills, and pulled the daisies fine. But we’ve wandered many a weary foot, since the days of auld lang syne.

We two have paddled in the stream, from morn till the sun was down. But seas between us two have roared, since days of auld lang syne.

So here’s a hand my trusty friend. Give us a hand of thine. We’ll take a good-will drink again, for auld lang syne.
