Ivan Trollip - African Artist

Ivan Michael Trollip was born in Pretoria, South Africa. He has enjoyed a rapid rise in popularity since he began painting full time in 1991. His studies include art courses in 1988 and 1989, followed by two years of study in life drawing. prior to that he trained in all facets of visual merchandising and artistic display.

This, coupled with years of practical experience as a landscape artist has given him the wonderful sense of perspective and composition found in all his oil and acrylic works. His subjects range from wildlife to abstract and florals, for which he is best known.

His love of the wild and his intimate knowledge of our local fauna and flora is combined with his own creative personality, resulting in a joyous celebration of colour, diversity and harmony in all his works.

Apart from a strong local following, Ivan has works in private and corporate collections in the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany, Australia, Canada and Asia.

Springbok Flying Safaris

We are a full-service luxury adventure travel company providing classic propliner voyages throughout Africa, Europe and beyond.
Based at historic Rand Airport near Johannesburg, South Africa, we cater for discerning adventurers who want a no-compromise African experience. We provide for all your needs - from propliner and ground transportation, to accommodation and excursions. Our destinations and activities can be customised to meet the needs of any group - whether fact-finding or study, special interest, exploration or vacation.

Our founder Captain Flippie Vermeulen pioneered long-distance travel in Africa, and our crews are not only experienced in African and European aviation, but are familiar with local conditions throughout Africa. With our solid relationships and network of exotic destinations, we have the experience and ability to venture safely far from standard routes into the African interior.

Captain Flippie Vermeulen founded private propliner flying safaris in Africa. He initiated the South African Airways Historic Flight 15 years ago, and since then has proved that a team of highly skilled personnel can operate classic propliners in remote areas and on trans-ocean flights with perfect safety.
Captain Vermeulen is rated on nearly 100 different aircraft types, from antique biplanes to the latest Boeing 747-400 airliner. His aviation milestones include numerous propliner voyages from Cape to Cairo and beyond, as far as the North Cape of Norway and the United States of America.

Africa's vastness and diverse attractions can only be fully explored by our specialized tours. More than three times larger than Europe or the USA, Africa offers a breathtaking range of attractions, which are best discovered by air, and away from conventional routes.
Classic prop-liners are ideal for exploring Africa's scenic wonders at low altitude. Comfortably cruising above a coastline, river or mountain pass, your journey becomes as enjoyable as your destination. Migrating herds of elephant, rolling bushveld, towering mountain ranges, sand dunes, rivers, islands and geological features are all spectacularly revealed at low altitude.

On landing your journey of discovery continues - remote lakeshores and islands, intimate lodges and camps, awe-inspiring landscapes and wildlife, fascinating local history and culture.
We offer the ultimate African adventure - a specialised voyage of discovery by air for travellers wishing to experience authentic Africa. We have pioneered the use of classic propliners, combining the ambience of a bygone era with modern facilities and comforts, creating a discerning African experience which is rare to find.

We believe that to discover Africa's most fascinating secrets, we must leave behind well-beaten tracks and flight paths. However, at even the most remote locations, our guests stay in premier luxury lodges, hotels and camps, ensuring comfort and safety at all times.
Our flying safaris appeal to curious and energetic adventurers who will delight in discovering the real Africa. Our itineraries explore Africa's most spectacular scenery and wildlife, whilst our expert guides are steeped in the history, culture, wildlife and politics of each of the countries we visit.

With so much to see and do in Africa, we aim to leave you with memories for a lifetime.

The Princess Project

An unusual idea, but (hopefully) one of great importance. I started the year with determination to REALLY make a difference in someone's life - Came up with the idea of sponsoring less privileged - (in fact they have nothing) - matriculants that long to feel like a princess at their matric farewell, but do not have the financial capacity to "get dressed" for the occasion.

The reality is that they do not attend a function, rather than feeling not 'fitting in'. The idea is:
Let's all donate ex-evening outfits / wedding dresses / ball gowns, matric farewell outfits (that don't fit anymore, and you don't anyway want to be seen in it ever again), etc

Somehow I think we’ll manage to organize dry-cleaning? I will make the utmost effort to ensure that dresses are lent to matriculants/students that are considerate and really will appreciate the effort - in fact - the idea is that all dresses must be returned, in order to build up a range for every shape & size. The commitment is to keep the garments in close to perfect condition.
A couple of friends also indicated that they would help with make-up, hair, dressing up, etc at an event

I will organize drop-off points or alternatively arrange collectionsHopefully if we get going early in the year, we will be able to make a princess's dream come true.
It's purely an inspiration, and any help in what ever way that you feel comfortable – it’s really appreciate. Any ideas / inspirations welcome!

Please assist in this wonderful? idea - it doesn’t involve a lot of effort - only the inspiration of giving
This is a non-profit charity project and hopefully we can make it work.

SkyHigh Tandems

Contact SkyHigh Tandems at 076 055 7273

A Tandem jump is a one on one skydive where you are "attached", with a special harness to an instructor, and therefore is the quickest way to experience freefall. No training necessary, you are simply attached by a special harness to a qualified tandem master (TM). You enjoy the ride and the TM does all the work.

Tandem jumping is the easiest way to enjoy this experience of a lifetime.
You will both exit the aircraft and freefall for about 40 seconds at a speed of 120 mph at which time the instructor will pull the ripcord to deploy a parachute that is specifically designed for two people. You will then assist the instructor in guiding the parachute to an on-target landing at the drop zone. The training for a tandem jump takes approximately 5 minutes and is taught at the drop zone.
To do a Tandem Skydive you must get parental permission if you are younger than 18.

You must weigh no more than 100 kgs. If you exceed our recommended weight limit, call for additional information.

Facilities include lecture rooms, accommodation in the bunkhouse, free camping facilities, hot and cold showers, swimming pool, bar, canteen, braai facilities, plenty of secure parking and a weekend you'll never forget !!!

Environ Health E-Cig

Environmentally Friendly Smoking Devices and Products

Welcome to E-Cig, the electronic cigarette. A healthier way to smoke, and even to stop smoking!
Ever heard the saying "Best thing since sliced bread" well now here's something that truly is. A product so great it deserves it's own parking space. The Environ Health E-Lux is an electronic version of the every day, frequently consumed, love of many, Cigarette.
The very product that has creeped into many of our lives and left it's mark. The mark of unhealthiness, the mark of unhygienic, the mark of "Please Sir this is a non smoking area".

So what makes this product any different to the conventional way of smoking?

It is safe to smoke anywhere, anytime without harming the environment or any individuals.
There is no risk of any disease commonly associated with Smoking such as Cardio Vascular Diseases, Cancer, respiratory decline etc. Cost saving of up to 50% on your monthly smoking budget. A real opportunity to STOP SMOKING.

How does it work
It’s simple really, the device consists of the following; an airflow activated battery, a vaporizing unit and a nicotine cartridge. Each cartridge (available in various strengths and flavours) is dosed with nicotine drops. Once airflow passes through the battery unit it activates the vaporizer that atomizes the nicotine and converts it into a scentless vapour inhaled by the user.

The nicotine in the vapour is absorbed into the body and satisfies the smoker's physical and mental needs that would normally be satisfied by a normal cigarette, but the user is now no longer exposed to the harmful substances contained in cigarettes, i.e. Tar, Paper Smoke, Chemicals, Fertilizers etc. Just vapour containing the oh-so-important nicotine that smokers are addicted to, accompanied by the habit of sucking on a stick that creates clouds of grey and white every time they inhale and exhale.

Simple, supply and demand, the demand for a safer, healthier, less expensive form of smoking is phenomenal. Green is after all the new Black, everyone is trying to live better, cleaner, environmentally friendly lives and this product gives them that opportunity.

About Featherfoot

My love affair with the Bouvier des Flandres started in 1979 when I acquired my first Bouvier bitch from a German couple that I knew and visited frequently at the time.Her name was "Casandra" but unfortunately she was stolen out of my garden when she was 8 months old - and after months of searching - she was never seen again. I acquired my second Bouvier bitch in 1985 when my eldest son was eight months old and she was 8 weeks old - her name was A'Bijoux. A couple of months later I was looking through the newspaper when I came across an advert where someone was looking for a home for an 18 month old male Bouvier.
To cut a long story short, I telephoned and acquired their address and I went the very next day and collected "Casper" - who had gained an unfavourable reputation with his previous owners of being an aggressive and uncontrollable dog.

At this time most people thought I had lost my mind with me wanting to adopt this so-called "aggressive" dog and the fact that I had a very young child who was not even walking yet.
The night I went to collect Casper was a cold and rainy night. When I arrived at the address to collect him - there was no-one at home - just the domestic helper with a note from the owners apologizing that they could not be there but I could just load up the dog and take him away if I wanted him.
From the moment I brought Casper into my home until the day I put him down in 1997 from old-age at 12 years old - I never, ever experienced one moment of aggression with this dog. In fact I witnessed more acts of bravery and love from this dog than I ever thought I would be blessed enough to ever experience. He made it his life's work to protect me and by this stage my 2 young children. Casper will ALWAYS be remembered in the very deepest corner of my heart and he will always be my FIRST BOUVIER HERO.

In the meantime A'Bijoux - now 4 years old, developed a cancerous tumor which had attached itself to her heart. We had her operated on and the tumor removed and for almost a year after the operation she seemed to be recovering well - then suddenly one day she became very ill again and on further investigation the Vet informed me that her liver had collapsed and I decided that it was time to let her go - there was no use in prolonging her suffering - so after many tears and heartache in 1990 I had no choice but to put her to sleep. There was nothing else that could be done to give her a quality life any longer.

It was not until 2003 that we acquired our next Bouvier bitch "Orca". A year later we acquired "Serene". Since then our Bouvier family has grown from 2 to 7. In 2005 we imported a male from Kennel av Asvidr in Norway and in 2006 we imported 2 females from Kennel v.d. Vanenblikhoeve in Holland.
Our dogs are from World Winning Champion bloodlines and we have puppies available from time to time to "approved homes". All our puppies are innoculated / dewormed / micro-chipped and eye tested and given the full bill of health before leaving our kennel.

2IC - Practical Superconsciousness

This is my contribution to the new age, the living web site...Quality Consciousness. P
lease use the search facility at the top right hand corner of this page to find what it is you may be looking for, as this website is as large as a metaphysical book.

Invisible Innovations - Is England, UK based and takes the new age to a new level personally and for corporate, it goes where the demand is for Emotional Intelligence and Spiritual Synergy, it’s derived from the (Clark Wilkerson) Hawaiian Huna system of philosophy. Neil is a Christian and was drawn to Huna by distinct similarities in the two systems and whose life and work is shaped by both as a life ethic.

(A training course of one year duration (12 modules) was competed in 1986/7 as a Kahuna by licensed trainers).

Neil is a native of Birmingham, England, (Moseley actually), and has travelled extensively on various assignments in his life to date - the most notable of these being South Africa for many years.
Find Neil Tighe on Facebook and you can link up with me there.

Consultations:Neil also offers a personal mental/emotional one-on-one clearing/releasing session. This is now available to those seeking to clear away blocks and provide a release from the past. This effectively addresses the root causes for problems such as repeat negative cycles, irrational harbouring of lower emotional issues, complexes and fixations (ie guilts & fears). Greening People® - No not making Martians or frogs!
On a lighter (green) note, we are so concerned about "greening" the planet that it makes no sense if we do not "green" ourselves with it.

And especially if you're in the Green Industry your employees should be able to demonstrate the talk of the industry, it's time to set new standards of personal green hearted quality and it starts with the people in it.
After all the concerns for the planet do come from a common sense attitude and heart-centred-consciousness with an appreciation of what's at stake, do you think that for an individual the risks are any the less?

This life concerns itself with attitude correction and what the ramifications are when you become unresponsive or non-cognizant about yourself (mentally/emotionally) or your human interactions (type/quality), which impact into your environment (green planet) - it's all physically/materially related folks.

This is the Nexus Point Where Personal Effectiveness Contributes to Business Effectiveness
Emotional Self Management is currently under estimated aswell as under valued life skill tool essential for a more fully functional person. Once the skills are learnt the main groups of fixations & complexes associated with emotional poor performance are progressively reduced in quantity and intensity allowing the individual to start functioning confidently, laterally, positively, constructively, objectively, intellegently, co-operatively, rationally and logically.

With the global economic downturn still affecting businesses it is difficult to remain alive let alone compete successfully in the current financial hurricane. It’s easy for the big corporations with their human resource departments and industrial psychologists to snap up the very best talent on the market and employ them as professionals increasing or at least maintaining their place in the market.
We all want the best performers on the job, we all want that much more out of our people and most of us choose talent that has the training/experience or is intelligently trainable. But ever stopped to consider that there is a relationship between emotional intelligence and performance.

Did you ever consider the fact that a highly qualified professional with (hidden) emotional problems will sabotage themselves exactly the same as anyone else. That no amount of qualifications, high-end motivation or experience can compensate for emotional issues that arise to the surface at an untimely phase of your life.
It has become apparent that people who are emotionally “cleared” are better achievers because they perform better and the morale is higher. Toyota Motor manufactures were famous at one point in their business for not allowing people to speak negatively on their factory premises. In some industries you are not allowed to make a criticism without at least three solutions to the problem that you’re voicing.

Well it is the same for us as individuals, some companies only employ people that are the ‘right stuff’ emotionally – psychometric testing is one example. But, does it go far enough? As it only evaluates certain characteristics of how you are on the day and likely behavioural patterns under certain conditions.
In a large beverage firm, using standard methods to hire division presidents, 50% left within two years, mostly because of poor performance. When they started selecting based on emotional competencies such as initiative, self-confidence, and leadership, only 6% left in two years. Furthermore, the executives selected based on emotional competence were far more likely to perform in the top third based on salary bonuses for performance of the divisions they led: 87% were in the top third.

In addition,division leaders with these competencies outperformed their targets by 15 to 20percent. Those who lacked them under-performed by almost 20% (McClelland,1999).
Everyone knows that a motivated work force is a happy one, but there are many dynamics that can affect this, being a good employer/boss is the first step, the next thing is how and what you attract into your business – RIGHT! That goes for staff and the clients. This is about the one and only place where the ‘law of attraction’ works as it was designed to. "Please quote me". It is reassuring to know that in order to maintain a fully functional personal self and workforce (or team) around you that is motivated and effective there are ways and means available to accomplish this. Many industries function this way or similarly already.

One of the foundations of emotional competence -- accurate self-assessment -- was associated with superior performance among several hundred managers from 12 different organizations (Boyatzis, 1982).
What is this about? The philosophy is simple; get to the problem before the problem gets to you. We all have them, and it’s a risk to your business as to what you have already have employed that manifests itself in many surreptitious problems at the work place. People tend to hide certain issues that they can’t afford to let out anywhere else and these can be played out where people of the same issues are attracted to the same arena – YOUR BUSINESS.
