Christmas Day 2012

26 December 2012, 11:06
My dear friends it's Christmas morning. I'm up early.When we were children, Christmas eve was spent at home with our mother and father. We would get to open one present each. We would eat fancy European cheeses, sausages, and crackers. I would have a little shot of bourbon with mom and dad. My sister and I would then go to bed and get up around 3:00 AM to open the rest of the presents. Dad would take us out during the day while mom cooked the traditional turkey dinner. OK now we have a South American Christmas with la Noche Buena. We eat around midnight and open gifts. Copernicus got a big leather dog bone. I got a new electric razor. Elena got a beautiful leather suitcase, a Dyson heater, and a new television that will be delivered tomorrow. Elena loves You Tube and Netflix. The new television will connect right to the internet and she can watch all the things that she loves. This has been a year of great achievements but also sad and hard times including the loss of Cassi. Elena will sleep late and rest today.

So dear tax payer, how much is a million Rand? Consider this: A R10.00 note is 128 mm in length. R1 000 000 (One million rand) is therefore 12.8 kilometres of R10 notes – end to end. Read more...

Mr President

They say that one should never bring emotion into the world of politics. I don’t know who ‘they’ are but ‘they’ certainly have never felt the way that I believe the majority of South Africans are feeling now. Sad. Read more...
