    A brandy and a braai still won't hurt anyone.

      Only if you have an indoor braai; it was thick enough that I couldn't see across my lawn at daybreak and there was a mix of hail & rain coming in at a 45o angle while I was driving at 07:30.

    Please people, don't take your little boats to the sea and call it an accident after capsizing in these forecast gale force winds - it's not worthy it!

      No, eh-eh, *slap* just one little capsize is enough!
