Monthly Archives: November 2004


I was up at 6:30 this morning, early for a Saturday, prompted by cramps in my calves. I’ve been getting cramps in my legs on most nights for the last 10 days or so. Thinking that it was a lack of magnesium, I have been taking Slow-Mag for the last week. I hadn’t had cramps for a few days now so I thought it was working, but now I’m not so sure. Mela thinks I should see the doctor as there might be some other underlying cause. It’s a real pain in the buttlegs.

Harry Potter is Evil?

This past Sunday the Sunday Times reported as follows;

A BLOEMFONTEIN matric pupil refused to answer an English exam question on Harry Potter because he believes the fictional wizard boy promotes witchcraft. Full Story Here

I can’t understand how people can believe Harry Potter is promoting witchcraft, yet are quite happy to accept many other children’s fantasy tales. It’s all just fantasy. Surely the issue is more about parents educating their children in what is real and what is fantasy and should be read without being taken literally.
