Scooters are making a comeback. Not surprisingly, given the punitive price of fuel based on a skewed formula reminiscent of cricket’s Duckworth-Lewis. And drivers of these two-wheeled midgets are able to slip in and out of heavy traffic like daredevils slaloming on waterskis. And the latest ones come in all colours. A bright blue one whizzed past me on the freeway recently. The driver was Rosey, our favourite cameriere, doffed out in a yellow - Read more...

‘n Groef en ‘n graf verskil net in diepte. Die wie, wat, waar en wanneer die stelling sy oorsprong gehad het, het vervaag, maar die trefkrag daarvan, beslis nie. In ‘n dorp soos Mosselbaai, met ‘n noemenswaardige populasie van seniors, is ‘n mens deeglik bewus van die feit dat die wêreldtendens dié van ‘n ouerwordende samelewing is. Mense, veral in eerste wêreldlande, leef eenvoudig langer danksy goeie gesondheidsorg. Volgens statistiek verskaf - Read more...

Steering this ship is an onerous task and has never been more so than now. My father gave me a copy of the writings of Kahlil Gibran's. I never intended becoming a journalist, but from a very young age learnt this from The Prophet. "The moving finger writes and having writ moves on: nor all thy piety nor witShall lure it back to cancel half a line,Nor all thy tears wash out a word of it.” What people very often do not understand is how heavily - Read more...

'Minder is meer' is deesdae die gonswoord. Die bekende Marie Kondo is reeds geruime tyd 'n voorstaander om die dinge wat mens om jou opgaar uit te sorteer en te verminder.  'n Nuwe beweging het vanjaar die lig gesien - die '100-Besittings' kultusbeweging steun die idee dat mens slegs 100 items moet besit, items wat werklik vir jou van waarde is en dit sluit klereasie in, inteendeel die kultus glo mens moet slegs 10 kledingstukke in jou kas hê. - Read more...

My skoonpa het op 'n keer gesê 'n skaap kan nie 'reverse' nie. Ek wou nog altyd vir 'n skaapboer vra of dit waar is of nie. Van skape weet ek min, maar van sommige mense is dit beslis waar. Om te 'reverse' is meer ingewikkeld as wat dit klink. Dit beteken jy moet op 'n punt kom waar jy besef jy is besig om verkeerd te loop, dan moet jy stop, herbesin en 'reverse' tot op 'n plek waar jy bestekopname kan doen voordat jy op 'n ander pad vorentoe - Read more...

"Look into my eyes – you will seeWhat you mean to me.Search the heart, search the soulAnd when you find me there you’ll search no more." These are the first lines of a song by Canadian singer, Bryan Adams. Eyes, indeed are mesmerizing. One doesn’t have to be knowledgeable in the art of writing love songs or poetry to know that these odes are simply incomplete without reference being made to the peepers of one’s object of desire. Without doing too - Read more...

How do we come across to foreigners? Vilgot, a Swedish acquaintance not given to small talk, gives a guttural monosyllabic answer: “Funny”. Meaning humorous? He manages three words: “No, no, weird”. Asked for examples, he’s more verbally forthcoming. “Men walk around shopping centres without shoes. If only they’d wash their feet, cut and scrape their claw-like toenails that picked up dog turd and mud. While waiting for my turn at a barbershop, - Read more...

In engels is daar 'n gesegde, to call a spade a spade. Kom ons hou vir 'n rukkie op ordentlik, polities korrek en versigtig wees omdat ons bang is ons trap op tone of iewers lyk iemand dalk sleg omdat hulle nie by alles in hulle besige program kan uitkom nie. Let's call a spade a spade.  Oudtshoorn se middedorp is op die oomblik in die hande van rondlopers, leeglêers, selfaangestelde karwagte en gomsnuifende jeugdiges wat hulself met klippe, - Read more...

Every so often my little old-fashioned mailbox is stuffed with flyers advertising herbal and tribal remedies – which come via various magicians cum astrologers cum healers in town – all from my ancestors, allegedly. This week our President Jacob Zuma jetted into the Nelson Mandela Bay and in a blatant show of dissent he threw his weight behind Andile Lungisa's election as regional chairperson of the ANC – despite ANC Secretary General Gwede - Read more...

1 Timoteus 4:15 NLVHier is 'n paar algemene wanpersepsies oor sukses: 1) Ons dink dat sukses onmoontlik is, dus kritiseer ons dit. Ons wil glo dat die lewe maklik moet wees, so ons neem aan dat indien enigiets moeilik is, dit sukses onmoontlik maak. Wanneer sukses dan buite ons bereik bly, gooi ons die handdoek in en sê, 'Wie het dit in elk geval nodig?' Ook, wanneer iemand wat ons as minder verdienstelik as onsself beskou, suksesvol is, raak ons - Read more...
