What's in a name? Depends on what name and to whom it belongs. Take my name. At one time, I thought it was rare, almost exclusive to an elite group. Wrong. I've discovered my namesake. The garden was getting out of hand, with weeds smothering the flowers. And not having green fingers and all thumbs when it comes to soiling my hands, I set out to find me a gardener. As luck would have it, I spotted one working in a neighbouring garden. Yes, he - Read more...

Die lewe word nie gemeet aan die aantal asemteue wat ons neem nie, maar aan die oomblikke wat ons asem wegslaan, sê ‘n bekende gesegde.  Wanneer was die laaste keer dat jy jouself verbaas het, jou omgewing jou verstom het en jou medemens jou verras het?  Gee aandag aan die klein dingetjies, sien nuwe dinge, ontdek nuwe belangstellings en wag vir die grille van plesier om langs jou ruggraat af te hardloop!   - Read more...

Politics. It conjures up the notion "stay clear", yet few topics offer more potentially hilarious material. Said by an opinion leader this week - referring to last week's SONA (State of the Nation Address) - "Who needs to the Moscow Circus, when our very own parly boasts entertainment like that?" The unsavoury groping between the white-shirted thugs and unruly members of the EFF, edged the event closer to scenes in a B-grade action movie. And - Read more...

Die lewe is met vreesaanjaende situasies gevul: vrees vir siekte, werkloosheid, verwerping, ander mense se opinies. As jy dit nie hanteer nie, sal vrees jou innerlike vrede steel. Soos Chuck Swindoll ons egter herinner: 'Dawid het vrees direk by sy voordeur met twee vrae ontmoet. 'Vir wie moet ek dan vrees? Vir wie sal ek bang wees?'  Hy het die deur in vrees se gesig toegeslaan deur te verklaar, 'Ek sal nie bang wees nie. Ek [sal] - Read more...

Valentine's day is just another really horrible commercial event. I shudder when I see Easter eggs in stores slide into the place where Christmas decorations were. And before we know it, Valentine's Day cards are popping up everywhere, impossible to miss. But if I am totally honest, no matter how I dislike the concept of Valentine's Day – why can't people love each other everyday instead of being ridiculously schmaltzy once a year – there is a - Read more...

Chatterbox by Tanya Watson
Today was one of 'those days'. Everything annoyed me, nothing wanted to work the way I wanted it to and every time the phone rang I wanted to throw the stupid thing against the wall. Didn't really help that it was so damn hot either!  And then, on my way home - irritated and bothered - a blind man, briefcase in one hand, cane in the other, was heading home after (I assume) a day at the office. And he was smiling - the biggest goofiest smile I've - Read more...

Local paleontologists are ecstatic and are salivating over the latest find. A dinosaur's tooth. And according to one expert, the unlucky prehistoric lizard lost his incisor 120 million years back. Evidently the tooth was picked up on a Knysna beach by a youngster who had a feeling it was more than a battered crustacean from the sea. Imagine the feverish excitement of the fossil fanatic when handed this rare find - not unlike a gold digger - Read more...

Life in the Slow Lane by Cliff Buchler
What’s in a name? Depends on what name and to whom it belongs. Take my name. At one time, I thought it was rare, almost exclusive to an elite group. Wrong. I’ve discovered my namesake. The garden was getting out of hand, with weeds smothering the flowers.

Die nuus van die dag is selde eenvoudig, hoewel heelwat lesers dit seker so sou wou hê. Ek vind dat mense dit in swart en wit of reg of verkeerd wil hê, maar dit selde is. Mense se perspektief op nuus hang meestal af van wat hulle in hul eie lewens ervaar het. Lesers kan na dieselfde foto kyk, dieselfde storie lees of na dieselfde uitsending luister en heeltemal uiteenlopende menings daaroor te hê. Politiek, plaaslik, asook rondom die wêreld is - Read more...

Kantlyn | Margin by Cornelle Carstens
Die dorp is maar klein. As jy jou ry mooi ken en goed jou tyd bestuur, kan jy 'n vinnige vreedsame draai by die Punt maak en steeds teen 08:00 betyds agter jou lessenaartjie in 'n muwwe kantoor inskuif, gereed vir die werksdag. Dis Mosselbaai. Meestal heerlik plattelands. Hande wip op agter stuurwiele soos die mense groet en jy vorder stadig deur die inkopierakke in Checkers van al die verneem en geselsies maak. Alhoewel die dorp heeljaar - Read more...
