To win the respect of intelligent people
and affection of children;
To earn the appreciation
of honest critics and endure
the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better,
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch,
or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier
because you lived.
This is to have succeeded."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
LOVE & PEACE
The man of wisdom is never of two minds;
the man of benevolence never worries;
the man of courage is never afraid.
A loving heart is the truest wisdom.
The art of being wise is knowing what to overlook.
What gems of painting or statuary are in the world of art,
or what flowers are in the world of nature,
are gems of thought to the cultivated and the thinking.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

I HAVE JUST BOUGHT A MAGAZINE CALLED SPORTS STAR BECAUSE I FOUND A VERY GOOD ARTICLE ON RICHRICKY..SO I HAVE FOUND IT PRUDENT TO REPRODUCE WHAT WAS WRITTEN INSIDE ... TRUST ME WHAT YOU READ HEREIN BELOW IS TRUE AS WHEN RICHARD AND CODE HELD A PRESS CONFERENCE LAST FRIDAY RICHARD SAID ALMOST ALL WHAT APPEARS HEREIN BELLOW.
"A LOT HAS BEEN SAID AND WRITTEN ABOUT RICHARD AND HIS WIFE RICKY AFTER WHAT TRANSPIRED DURING BBA 2 IN SOUTH AFRICA WHERE THE FORMER HAD THIS THING GOING ON IN THE HOUSE WITH ANGOLAN HOUSEMATE TATIANA.

DOOMSAYERS APPARENTLY GOT IT WRONG; THE MARRIAGE BETWEEN RICHARD AND RICKY HAS ACTUALLY BEEN BOLSTERED BY HIS PARTICIPATION IN THE BBA 2 CONTEST AND NOT OTHERWISE AS PREDICTED BY THE CYNICS.
THE PAIR HAS ATTESTED TO THIS AND DECLARED THAT THEIR LOVE AND CARING FOR EACH OTHER HAS GROWN FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH AFTER THE BBA 2 EXPERIENCE.
THE COUPLE HAS MADE IT OFFICIAL TO THE EFFECT THAT WHATEVER KIND OF RELATIONSHIP RICHARD HAD OR DID NOT HAVE WITH TATIANA OR ANY OTHER FEMALE CONTESTANT IN THE HOUSE HAD LEFT RICHARD AND RICKI'S MARRIAGE INTACT.
"NO ONE CAN STAND BETWEEN US!"
"I LOVE RICHARD, HE IS MY HUSBAND AND WE ARE HAPPILY MARRIED"
SHE ADMITS THAT IT WAS TOUGH FOR HER TO HAVE TO WATCH WHAT WAS GOING ON IN THE HOUSE AND WOULD NOT WISH FOR ANY WOMAN TO HAVE TO GO THROUGH THAT.
HOWEVER, SHE SAYS DEEP DOWN SHE ALWAYS KNEW THAT RICHARD WOULD COME BACK TO HER AND THE COUPLE WOULD PICK UP WHERE THEY LEFT OFF AND CONTINUE WITH THEIR LIFE AS HUSBAND AND WIFE"

Richard's arrival in Mwanza on the 29 December 2007 - was very exciting !!
The TV crew was at the airport and Richard was whisked around town in a convertable and an entourage of motorcycles. Code and Richard toured Serengeti Breweries where they got to taste beer fresh off of the assembly line.
Mwanza was an afternoon event at the big stadium, and again, the turn out was really high.
The local dancing was crazy and sexy!
