Apartheid ended when the South African parliament repealed the Population Registration Act of 1950 (1991)


A HEALTHFUL DAY

Rise early, and take exercise in plenty,
But always take it with your stomach empty.
After your meals sit still and rest awhile,
And with your pipe a careless hour beguile.
To rise at light or five, breakfast at nine,
Lounge till eleven, and at five to dine,
To drink and smoke till seven, the time of tea,
And then to dance or walk two hours away
Till ten o'clock,--good hour to go to nest,
Till the next cock shall wake you from your rest.


"The Rule of Health"--The Every-Day Book, William Hone, 1827


The more I see of men, the more I like dogs.
Madame de Staël (1766-1817)
