High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! An overview of South African prisons service decorations and medals, which form part of the South African honours system. The Prisons Department was established in 1911. It was a civil service department, with uniformed warders. In 1955, the department adopted military ranks, and in 1959 its uniformed branch was named the South African Prisons Service. Until 1952, it was incorporated into the British honours system, as used in South Africa. Thereafter, it was part of the new South African honours system.

The male ostrich sits on the eggs at night and the female during the day time. The ostrich eggs are about 9 inches long and the ostrich eggs are the equivalent of about 24 chicken eggs. (Mighty big omelettes!). The ostrich feathers were very popular for feather boas and for hat decorations, and feather dusters. Their meat is quite palatable and their skin makes a fine pretty leather! The eggs are often hand painted (like the one in the photo), carved, decoupaged and decorated and are very popular! Scavenger #19 - Something made in the country in which you live! (South Africa) ODT - Starts with an "O" - Ostrich!!

Today is the 93rd birthday of one of the greatest people alive - Nelson Mandela or "Madiba" as we like to call him. Internationally, the day is officially called "Nelson Mandela Day". I decided to photograph a beaded South African flag keyring I have to commemorate this special day. Happy Birthday Madiba - you are an inspirational human being!

Safari Style
Renowned photographer Jon Ortner spent ten years documenting New York City in its best light, those moments before sunrise and at sunset when the city emanates a radiant beauty. In this lavishly produced volume, he presents 200 full-color photographs of the city's neighborhoods and landmarks, including breathtaking views of its skyline, from the George Washington Bridge and the Statue of Liberty to Rockefeller Center and the Chrysler Building. Perhaps most moving of all are the portraits of the World Trade Center Towers, a tragic loss to the city preserved here in the muted colors of twilight. Captions reveal little-known facts about Manhattan and two glorious foldout images present panoramic views.

As Western lavishness collided with striking native elements in the vast reaches of the East African savanna, the Safari style was born. Blending ethnic African with colonial European, the look emphasizes relaxed yet luxurious living, drawing on an elemental approach to texture, color, and pattern, and on indigenous materials and design. Exploring 21 spectacular homes in glorious color, Safari Style takes us on an expedition through a fantastic Moorish residence in Kenya, a hotel in Zanzibar masquerading as a Persian palace, an Italianate villa on a former coffee plantation in Nairobi, a tree house hideaway perched in the Ngong hills, and a host of other extraordinary dwellings. Though most of us will never live anywhere so unique, we can certainly find countless great ideas here to incorporate into our own more humble abodes. This is about a lot more than a few animal-print pillows and some swags of mosquito netting; it's about Old World elegance and evocations of the pleasures of exotic travel, even if we only get to enjoy it from the comforts of a cushy mudcloth-covered armchair. --Amy Handy
