I am not a techie when it comes to engineering but do have a friend who is an engineer from the industry currently working in Zambia. Thanks to him, I have some understanding that to plan and construct an electric network takes a methodolical and competent mind of the greatest order. At the electric pillar […]Read More Electrifying order
Nee, dit was nie ‘n poging om die wêreldteerpadtenkrolrekord te verbeter nie. Maar nou dat ek daaraan dink daar is na alle waarskynlikheid nie baie mense wat al watertenke in ‘n teerpad gerol het nie. Miskien moes ek eers vasgestel het of daar so rekord is en dit dan 5m verder gerol het ten einde […]Read More Tenkrol in die Teerpad Wêreldrekord
After determining that evanescent, has nothing do with how Evan is smelling, I deduced that the above quote and title of this post is not trying to tell my that gossiping is bad or something similar. Further research was necessary: Evanescent “soon passing out of sight, memory, or existence; quickly fading or disappearing” Oxford dictionary […]Read More “Talk is evanescent, writing leaves footprints”
The second time I visited Pilgrim’s Rest, a quaint restored gold rush town which was declared a Heritage site in 1986, was certainly less traumatic than the first time. The first time round I was about 9 years old and my sisters were respectively 5 and 8 years older than me. Friends of my parents and […]Read More Pilgrim’s Rest (ing) in Heritage
‘n Rukkie terug het Spokiesnyspoor haar beste portretfotos vir Maart aan ons gewys en die pragtige modelle kom almal uit die Kruger Wildtuin. Dit het my lus gemaak om ook weer ‘n slag oor diere te blog. My vorige onderwerp gaan nou weliswaar oor drake maar hierdie drake is nie vlees en bloed diere nie. In […]Read More 🙊 Die bobbejane en die aperazzi 🙉

I am not in sync with WordPress’s midweek photo challenge (and in comments I have seen that quite few bloggers agree with me). I was thinking of initiating a revolt or at least a coerced disagreement to put pressure on them to restore it to a Friday and I will certainly do that as soon […]Read More Dangerously late or is it a dangerous latte?
Dit is pouse en ek hardloop teen die trappe op vanaf die grondvloer na die eerste vloer van Laerskool Maria van Riebeeck. Soos wat dit my gewoonte is doen ek dit amper so vinnig as wat my standerd 3 bene my kan dra, al starende na die grond sodat ek nie mistrap nie. Nog voordat […]Read More Insidente uit my Laerskooldae 😇
A few blog friends have urged me to place more photos even if it is without commentary. It is also the first time I do a second installment of the same topic of the weekly photo challenge. If you want to know more about Elands Bay which we visited last weekend go to my previous […]Read More Being egged on to wanderlust
If the heading doesn’t make sense don’t worry, it is not your lack of understanding but my attempt at wordplay. I suppose a lot of people wanderlust off to a mythical programmable surreal electronic land/world which can be purchased on eBay (your standard computer game). Nothing wrong with that, it is just that I prefer […]Read More Wandering about an e-land on ebay?
“In spite of the opinions of certain narrow-minded people who would shut up the human race upon this globe, we shall one day travel to the moon, the planets, and the stars with the same facility, rapidity and certainty as we now make the ocean voyage from Liverpool to New York. Jules Verne as Professor Lidenbrock […]Read More JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH
Today my family and I were at the Waterfront in Cape Town and went for a boat ride on the Pirate ship the Jolly Roger. it was very enjoyable and we even had dolphins accompanying us for a few minutes, but that is a story for another day. I was not going to take part […]Read More Surprised and aMAZEd
Inspired by the WordPress Weekly photo challenge “Security” Often security measures are due to anxiety levels. My army should be bigger than your army and my anti-missile systems more effective than your missile systems. In 1795 the Cape was governed by the Batavian Republic, the name given to Holland, after they were conquered early […]Read More One man’s security is the other’s anxiety
KNAL KNAL KNAL… Ek skrik wakker met opeenvolgende skote wat in die erf langs ons klap. Ons kamervenster kyk uit op op die agterplaas in die rigting van die 6 voet hoë vibacrete grensmuur. Ek besit nie ‘n pistool of ‘n geweer nie en het nog nooit die behoefte gehad om een te besit nie, […]Read More Die nag toe die skote geklap het
Inspired by the WordPress Photo Challenge with the theme Dense In the early hours of Saturday morning 11 March 2017 Hout Bay experienced the worst ever fire to occur in the Imizamo Yethu informal settlement. Three people lost their lives and thousands of people lost their homes. Due to very strong winds and difficult access […]Read More A different kind of DENSE
