A wry look at everything South African, some things British and occasionally some other stuff too. Nothing is sacred, save for Castle Milk Stout.

“Like us on Facebook”  Posted on 04/22/2014
I found myself behind this vehicle earlier today. For the record, the driver of van number 21 drives like he’s trying to secure some extra clientele. Look, business is business, and the funeral business is a big business in SA. But...

At the Car Wash  Posted on 04/22/2014
So much filth from the dirt roads of Cape Agulhas had adhered to my motor vehicle over the weekend, that I chose to stop off at the local car wash on my way to work this morning. This would normally be a fairly mundane experience,...

Good intentions  Posted on 04/21/2014
The plan was to get home and write something profound. Or at least upload the photos from an excellent long weekend and blog about that. Put simply, it’s not going to happen. Several kilometres of mountain biking last night and...

Leah  Posted on 04/20/2014
Sad news that our kids lost one of their cousins today. Leah was as much a member of the family as any human and we’re all going to miss her. She led a full, happy, active life right up to the very end, which is as much as any of us...

Day 24 and an unexpected change of tack. We’re now working from the ‘Eye For An Eye’ School of Justice Manual… Got to suggest that this is premeditated, right? Have a wonderful image of Gerrie Nel reclining on...

Meanwhile in Benoni this morning…  Posted on 04/16/2014
Much reptile. So yellow. Very escaped. Wow. I’m a regular follower of the Benoni Community Police Forum webpage. For me, there’s no better way of keeping up with the latest news on the crime front from Benoni and the...

That Filling Station Cafe letter  Posted on 04/16/2014
Another photo of an “is this real?” letter, like that Bic one (which wasn’t). This time, allegedly as a reply from a cafe owner to the Lake District National Park. Yes, it’s pretty funny anyway, but if you deliver...

One One Eight  Posted on 04/15/2014
Now I like beer as much as the next man, but I’m not quite as fussy as some when it comes to the trendy side of beer: “craft beer”. I love my Darling Brew Bonecrusher, but then I love my SAB Carling Black Label. I quite...
