    May ask off topic question on VPBiden? Is he home now?

    That’s the second person I’ve heard say that rain is “auspicious” (or good luck) in South Africa. Charlaye Hunter Gault mentioned that too.

    Ms. Dudette,
    That name sounds very familiar. Wasn’t she one of the first of two AA to attend the Univeristy of Ga.? I was a young girl then and that was BIG news.
    Good morning, all.
    Hanging in here. With you as long as I can.

      Yes, that’s her, LDS. She became an accomplished journalist and moved to South Africa years ago. She does correspondence for NBC from there.

        Thank you.
        Making plans with friends and family to go to SA next year.
        A life-long dream will finally come true only wished I could have gone sooner.
        I am loss for words for what I am feeling. So much pride…….tears just continue to flow every time I come here.

    This streaming vid puts me in mind of the few full Gospel “homegoing’s” I’ve attended. It’s in my genes.

      The Presidential limousine stuck in traffic ??!! Good grief, the Secret Service guys must be losing their minds !

      • 42 jacquelineoboomer
        December 10, 2013 at 2:11 am

        Think I saw that reference to the traffic jam much earlier, too, so I’m hoping that’s eased by now … yes, the Secret Service will be glad when he’s at his destination. And so will we!

    This is so cool that you are streaming this important part of history! Thank you!

    By the way, forgive me if this seems trivial under the circumstances, but watching the Chicago Bears beat the Dallas Cowboys 45-28 tonight, of all nights, when President Obama was traveling on Air Force One with Former President George W. Bush seemed quite the poetic metaphor :-)

    Was that PM Cameron who just arrived and entered the elevator?

    Ok, own up: how many gadgets/screens do you have open?

    in my part of Africa, rain falling on the day of your funeral is a signal to the community that the departed was a very kind person

    and

    that rain is a final gift, he/she which is washing away the tears of those who loved him/her and at the same time giving a gift of a rich food harvest for the community in the very near future (since most agricultural relies on rain-fed cropping patterns)

    Gonna go rest – might wake up to grab the program live – if not it’ll be DVRing all the way through in the morning.

    Reading some of the lovely comments alongside the SABC feed. This one stood out!

    “watching it LIVE at work…sorry Boss, Tata comes first. Will work 2moro” :-D :-D :-D

    I suspect that the stream can’t do TSA-type pat-downs because these are heads-of-state but it is worrying

    Retweeted by a USA Today reporter. If so, then wow, it’s crazy how a person’s beliefs (if some beliefs can be changed) or position changes when viewed through the lens of history.

      so may be this change in perspective will make our media shut up about castro, Mugabe and others – at least just for the duration of Pres. Mandela’s funeral

  34. December 10, 2013 at 3:04 am

    Good evening, morning, TODers!

    History in the making!

    Not sure the ceremony can begin in time. Lots of seats still empty. Apparently, there are traffic jams outside…

    Lots and lots of rain. Nelson Mandela was indeed a very very very nice person !!

  48. December 10, 2013 at 3:44 am

    Something tells me that we may not start on time — as we say we will be “keeping African time”

  49. December 10, 2013 at 3:44 am

    I love the rain. Cleansing, purifying for Mandiba.
