Diana Ferrus works as an administrator at the University of Western Cape. She is interested in recording the stories of black Afrikaans women, and wants to publish an anthology of short stories. This is after she did extensive research about black Afrikaans women writers. Diana is wellknown for her poem about the Khoisan woman Sarah Baartman whose remains were on display in Paris until 1986. In 2002 Diana read her poem for Sarah Baartman at the handing over of the remains to the South African government. "Iv'e come to take you home, home! Remember the veld, the lush green grass beneath the big oak trees, the air is cool there". This poem will be the title poem of her English poetry collection due for publication in August 2010.

In news beyond my little world...
Obviously, there's a world beyond Healthline , which I haven't been giving as much coverage to for fairly obvious reasons.
Hey you've got a great blog here, the best I've seen so far, keep up the good job! A few days ago I was surfing the web and came across this cool site on Mortgage loans online. It features all sorts of interesting information on
Mortgage loans online and makes it super easy to apply online. Now I know that people want fast services I recommend they visit
Mortgage loans online for quick and hassle-free service.
