This is my blog page. Yeah, yeah, I know, blogs are so ... early 2003. But what's cool about these blogs, aside from my biting sarcasm, keen intellect, and incisive wit, is the fact that this blogfest is driven by my very own, very cool, and very powerful Personal Information Manager which I call XiTouch.

THE STORY OF RHODESIA
Here's the story of Rhodesia.
A land both fair and great.
On the 11th of November - an independent state.
This was much against the wishes of certain governments.
Whose leaders tried to break us down, and make us all repent.
But we're... all Rhodesians and we'll fight through thick and thin.
We'll keep this land a free land, stop the enemy coming in.
We'll keep them north of the Zambezi, till that river's running dry.
And this mighty land will prosper for Rhodesians never die.
They can send their men to murder, they can shout their words of hate.
But the cost of keeping this land free will never be too great.
For our men and boys are fighting for the things that they hold dear.
This land and all its people will never disappear.
'Cos we're.... all Rhodesians etc......
We'll preserve this little nation, for our children's children too.
For once you're a Rhodesian, no other land will do
We will stand forth in the sunshine, with the truth upon our side.
And if we have to go alone, we'll go alone with pride.
