White hair

One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. 
She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?" 
Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white."

The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, "Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"

South African Embassy congratulates the South African Team for their delightful results in 2016 Rio Olympics.

South Africa's Sunette Viljoen has won silver in the women's javelin at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Viljoen's best throw on the night was 64.92 metres.

Viljoen's success came on the same day that Henri Schoeman won bronze in the triathlon.


And making it a doubly delightful day for South Africa was Richard Murray’s miracle run to fourth placed, just behind Henri Schoeman.

Team SA's medal haul now stands at nine - one gold, six silver and two bronze.
