Hello and welcome to this weeks edition of Whimsical Wednesday…

January 221879
The event… Rorke’s Drift, Natal Province, South Africa…

I think most of us have seen the film, Zulu…

When this battle began there were just 139 British Soldiers and over 4,000 Zulu Warriors…I reckon the sight of those warriors was enough to strike fear into anyone’s heart…The Zulus are known for their strong fighting spirit.


People from the Zulu tribe are also known to be amicable and very warm. They are known for their practice and belief in Ubuntu which simply means “humanness” or “good disposition”. This humanness is a part of the daily life of the Zulu people. They believe human beings are the most superior of all species hence the strong belief in Ubuntu. They further cement this belief by having many proverbs relating to good and bad behaviour towards fellow human beings.

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.
