World's Most Powerful...

If you thought money doesn't bring you power, well think again!Forbes international once again did their annual survey of who is among the celebrities top ranking when it comes to the pay slip!With a peek at the results i realized every year the figures just seem to increase!
1. Oprah Winfrey US$ 315 M

 Regardless her announcing that she was retiring... this woman is bound to appear again and again on this list.She has her feet set firm on the millions and has a very strong threshold of business. She has proven that will power, determination and a positive attitude can take you anywhere and everywhere you want or dream of being. Shes an exact black and white example of the Cinderella story,only there is no prince charming to accredit her success but only her stupendous determination.

2. Beyonce Knowles US$ 87 M

This woman has truly defined what a diva is.Going by my own statistics, she is what every woman wants and aspires to be.
Rich,strong,talented,beautiful,intelligent,home maker and very composed. She has proved (so far) that you can be famous, have a "travel through out" career and yet hold down a long lasting relationship. However she does it, shes an inspiration to many..and we are admirable to her! Well done deserve the $$$!!

3. James Cameron US$ 210

Most of you may be asking yourselves..who is James Cameron? For thos e of you who are movie and theater fanatics, its to your best interest to stand up for this movie guru, he is the man behind the ever top earning movies the 1997 Taitanic and the 2009 Avatar! This man is a true legend, and his creativity to bring a script to life has definitely proved why his pay is that much..  

4. Lady Gaga US$62 M

The queen of wired, yet the queen of great music! This profound lady has faced all sorts of criticism from all corners of the world and yet she debuts on this list at number 4!Even though her life maybe very controversial, Lady gaga has taken the world by a storm.She has entertained and channeled entertainment to a brand new dimension. Her strange videos, confusing outfits, interesting personality and amazing music has obviously worked to her favor and bank account.....

5.Tiger woods US$ 105 M 

You would expect with all the drama this man has had,his payslip would not amount to this!I think somethings only superstars can get away with  negative press coverage.I justify my thought because if you take the case of Mr. Woods having a sex scandal, then divorce and all the negative press, you as an ordinary person would not even have a job, let alone your wife/spouse!But due to his golfing and investments, Mr Woods savaged Number 5 and clearly show casing that he definitely has got the power! And he aint going no wher,negative press or not!

6.Britney Spears US$ 64 M

This Lady is my financial hero!Can you even believe she is on this list!TOP 10 for that matter?! In my life, i have never met or seen any celebrity who can recover from negative bad press like her! She has been abused, mocked and treated as dirt. We have all watched and witnessed her go from sweet to sexy to mummy to crazy n back to hero!As a teenager, she was my idol and still to date she remains on my top 10!I saw her shave her hair and go bald, we all saw her go to court and fight for her kids from that ..Kevin Federline, if i have the name right and we all saw her return with amazing hits as womanizer, if you seek Amy,3, etc!As her lyrics to the song stronger" now im stronger than yesterday...." She is truly stronger day by day!Well done Brit, you have well earned those dollars!

7.U2 US$ 130

This is a rock group and a half!This guys have been in existence since the 80's and up till now we can rock to their music! My fave song of all time from them is "Beautiful day"!These outstanding rockers made it to the list with a figure of 
US$ 130 M!! If i were them i would probably sing till i die!..My hope is they take my advice into consideration..

8.Sandra Bullock US$ 56

I am actually struggling to find words to comment about the Miss congeniality,crash, speed,while you were away movie star! Madam Bullock is those people who i love to call"more than a pretty face"!She very brave considering shes won a golden globe award and an Academy award and controversially won a Razzie award for worst actress!You know if i was an actress, and got nominated for a Razzie worst award i would not show my face there! Never ever and she did, then later had to return it not because they had changed their minds, but coz she had been given an original trophy!Bull Crap..if i were her i never would give it back to them !!In any case, the now divorcee, is a proud mum, and rich one for that matter... 

9. Johnny Depp US$ 75

The 21 Jump street star has become a household name with films such as Pirate
of the Caribbean and now, the Disney film Alice in wonderland The film has grossed $1 billion at the worldwide box office, making Depp the only actor to headline two $1 billion film! So basically beside his hard work, handsome looks, we can understand why he is ranked number 9.
 10. Madonna US$ 58 M

The 52 year old Material Girl isn't quite ready to step aside for young pop followers such us Lady Gaga or Britney Spears! The 52-year-old singer had the fourth highest-grossing tour of 2009, bringing in $6 million a night and $138 million overall. An episode of the Fox hit sitcom Glee, which featured cast members singing several of her songs, added to her already high profile and cushioned her significant earnings from publishing royalties..Madge is one of those "forever " stars and i still expect to find her on this list next year!

This are my thoughts on the most powerful ranked celebrities, whats your say??

Free World: South Africa you made me proud..Spain you made me ...

Free World: South Africa you made me proud..Spain you made me ...: "Most people in the world probably thought South Africa could not pull it off.Most people in the world probably thought Spain could not pull ..."

South Africa you made me proud..Spain you made me extra proud!

Most people in the world probably thought South Africa could not pull it off.Most people in the world probably thought Spain could not pull it off!Amazing statistics kept on saying Africa was not ready and the same for Spain.."Spain are not strong enough!" But after a whole month of football play..this is the picture we all have stuck in our minds and this is the same picture that will be used as a memory of the magnificent 2010 world cup win!

After losing their first group stage game, Spanish fans had almost given hope and after a spectacular 1-0 win against the dutch, the Spanish Hail Marys proved to have worked! The arsenal midfielder who created the pass to Inesita who scored, admitted that he was frustrated that he would only come in as a substitute, but in the end it all paid off. He dedicated the win to his family and more so to his beloved fans!

Its moments like this that make us all wish we were football stars but on the other hand, its such moments that remain haunting us forever like it was a case for the Netherlands team....

All said and done there had to be a winner and a looser!The great man had to take the golden medal home and it was bravo to South Africa, how you handled the tournament you made Africa proud!It is my hope, that East Africa, esp Kenya may some day get to host the world cup but for now, join me as we stand up to appreciate the ever amazing SPAIN!!

Best of Mount Kenya

Have you ever had a call that really inspired you or even met someone who made you feel amazingly inspired?Today, i got on of those calls and thanks to that call, it inspired me to actually share this amazing info about an awesome Mt. Kenya located cabin! Rutundu Log Cabins.

Rutundu Log cabins  are located on the rim of Lake Rutundu, overlooking the northeastern side of Mount Kenya. The place has two log cabins which are very spacious, each with ensuite bathrooms and open log fires.

The decor creates that pure" natural - homely" feeling that almost makes you want to cuddle and enjoy hot chocolate as you watch the fire place. There are a number of activities that you could undertake such as walking,fishing,birdwatching and horse riding!  In short  for all you nature lovers this is what i call a Nature Lover's sacred heaven...and my good friend who called me today, you need to get yourself up there!If not,i think i will find a mob to drag you up there.....

Relationship securites...

Being a Monday, nobody ever wants to get up and especially knowing that im just going to sit in traffic for about an hour before i get to the office.As it mostly happens, the matatu i boarded had speakers loud and very familiar voices which i know to heart, once again talking to me!Maina Kageni and Joseph Kingangi! The discussion topic of the day was some of the things that men "must have"  and women should look out for those qualities!As  Maina read out the point no1-7, i could not stop nodding my head in agreement.This sounded like gospel to my ears! Out of the 7 points , 4 really caught my attention!

1. You must be able to provide financially. Men look at it as though women are just being "gold diggers" but the truth is women just want you to take charge of you duties!You know how all men always quote that phrase in the bible that says "women must submit to their men" well, interestingly, if the men would continue to read on that chapter it also gets to state that a man should provide for his family! We have had cases of men not leaving money in the house and expecting to find food at the table at the end of the day!Is that woman supposed to do some magic for the food to appear on the table?

2. Looking good in terms of, dressing, cleanliness, tidiness, fashion conscious, smelling good (sweat is a killer) and most of all handsome and flat tummy. Men take this point very lightly, but here is a woman's point of view!The tummy doesn't work in your favor when it comes to bedroom exercise! It only adds to my reasons as to why i should find other ways to fill my pleasure!So stop lying to yourself about how you will look you have money, the way people will think you are doing well blah blah blah..all that is a big fat fib.

3.Give her freedom. Every woman dies for freedom. We hate stalkers and people who cannot give you time to breathe!We hate you calling us 300 times and sending texts just to find out where we are!We hate it wen you call our friends and family members just to know our whereabouts.. twice, thrice a day is normal, more than plain insanity.

4. Grow up. Plain and simple i have your kids, i do not need you to be one of them. Be a man, a father, a grown and however cold this may not your mother!!!

After all is said and done, men they had a point, if you did not get it you are way out of the league and i can firmly assure you that you will never get a permanent woman and if you have one, its just a matter of time she realizes you will never change therefore she will find alternatives to the relationship.So my dear men, please savage what you have and those on the hunt...act smart.!
