Well after a long time and many false starts, MatrixMen is finally getting of the ground. We have found a home at the Crescent Clinic, a local rehab and Psychiatric hospital, and we will be meeting every Tuesday night from the 6th Of November.

So Persistence is key.
To those of you on the forum from Johannesburg, I have posted the details on the Classifieds forum, so call us and come to group.

Heal well all

Thats great! A dream realized, and a kick in the balls to the pedophiles who tried to destroy us. Keep doing the good work and this reminds us all that we can get outside of our own heads (mine is a dangerous place to be) when we help others.

best wishes,

Nice work Martin,

To quote Calvin Coolidge, “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race”.

Excellent news, Martin!

wish i could drop in myself.
i hope you get plenty of "business."
not that i want anyone to need your help - but i'm sure there is a great need existing and hope that survivors will avail themselves of your support.
