Phil Collins - A few things you didn't know!
It’s Phil Collins Weekend on OFM! Tune in to hear which hit scored him an Oscar, which was is featured on his diamond selling album and also to hear the keyword you need to SMS to 36636 (R1.50/SMS) for the R1000 draw.
 
Philip David Charles "Phil" Collins, (born 30 January 1951), is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and actor. He gained fame as both drummer and lead vocalist for the rock group Genesis, and he gained worldwide fame as a solo artist.
 
 
 
During a Genesis recording session in the 1990’s, Mike Rutherford first created the main riff of the song he called "Heavy A Flat", to which Phil Collins suddenly improvised "I Can't Dance!". The riff was actually inspired by a Levi Strauss & Co. TV commercial using The Clash song "Should I Stay Or Should I Go". Originally the band did not think of it as anything more than a joke, because the song was too simple, too bluesy and completely unlike Genesis' style. Tony Banks said in an interview "It was one of those bits you thought was going to go nowhere. It sounded fun, but wasn't really special".
 
 
It was not until Banks added the keyboard sound effects that the song took on a whole different feeling—with a slight edge of humour in it—which made the band decide to record it. Banks also said in an interview that it showed a kind of direction Genesis could have gone in. Opposite to what Genesis has done as general practice, which is taking an idea and turning it into a long or complex composition, it was just taking an idea, and leaving it
alone.
 
The humorous music video (directed by Jim Yukich) illustrates the artifice and false glamour of television advertisements. Phil Collins comments that the video was designed to poke fun of the models in jeans commercials, and each verse refers to things that models in these commercials do. Source: Wikipedia
 
 
Take a moment to #takeaselfie with the cutest animal EVER!!
Let me introduce you to the cutest animal I've ever seen - The Quokka, an irresistibly adorable and happy-looking marsupial native to Australia which is now at the epicenter of what is possibly the cutest online trend of 2015 – the Quokka selfie.
 
 
 
Due to their 'vulnerable' status in the IUCN Red List, handling these critters is a crime, but they are not afraid of humans and will readily approach them, so taking a selfie with one shouldn't be too difficult. And given how happy they always looks, it's almost like they like the attention! Source: BoredPanda.
 
Here are a few of my favourite online #quokkaselfies

Mommy Matters - So verstaan jy jou baba, kleuter of tiener beter

Die span van Evergreen Parenting deel vandag hul wenke om jou te help om jou kinders beter te verstaan. Ek het by die Vrystaatse fasiliteerder, Brenda Myburgh gaan aanklop. Sy verduidelik wat temperament is en hoekom dit help as jy meer van jou kind se temperament en persoonlikheid verstaan. Temperament is ons ingebore “bedrading” en ons gedagtes, emosies en gedrag is gebasseer op hierdie behoeftes van ons. Hierdie klassiefikasie word gebruik om jou as ouer te help en is nie daar om iemand mee te etiketteer nie, maar eerder om toerusting te bekom wat ons as ouers bemagtig om beter te verstaan en situasies met ons kleuters/tieners beter te kan hanteer.

Mommy Matters - Tips for a new mom: Feeding your 6 month old
 
For a new mom things may often be a bit overwhelming. A mom in central SA recently sent her question for the experts regarding feeding her 6 month old baby boy. She wanted to know whether she introduced the correct solids and what she could try next.
 
 
Here is her question:
“My baby just turned 6 months and so far I have given him rice porridge and other fruit but I don’t understand how many times I should feed him during the day and what is good for him? Please help I’m a new mom”
 
I asked the experts on her behalf and spoke to Dr. Welma Lubbe a senior lecturer at the School of Nursing Science at the Potchefstroom campus of the North West University. She shares her tips for any new mom, also explains why breast milk is so vital and which foods you should NEVER give a baby! Take a listen here.
 
Here are a few tips for giving your 6 month old baby solids - as provided by our expert, Dr. Welma Lubbe:
 
At this time feeding is only to learn taste and texture.  Milk is still the nutritional substance and food is extra.  Give milk feeds first and introduce one new food every three to four days in the mornings.  The time between new foods help that you can know what to eliminate if the baby has a negative or allergic reaction, and introduce new things in the morning to prevent mom from being up all night if the food does not agree with the little one and causes things like cramps.   After rice porridge, start with green, yellow and orange vegetables, that are pureed.  Leave sweeter tasting foods for later, otherwise they are not so interested in the more salty tastes. For more info from Dr. Welma Lubbe visit www.littlesteps.co.za
 
 
If you have a question regarding your baby, tots or teens - email me yolanda@ofm.co.za and I will ask the experts on your behalf.
