The fires seemed to have burned out for the time being, but there are still a lot of pine trees still standing. We have a Berg Wind again today so there has been another fire warning from the local firefighters. I think all the Vynbos shrubs that have been partly burned should now be cut level with the ground as they are so dry and can still burn. There are quite a few holes in the ground which look like Snake holes but they are where the shrubs used to be before the fire.

It has only been a few weeks and a lot of the vynbos is starting to grow back. We had a wake here for the firefighters that lost their lives during the big fire. The town was filled by Bikers on Harley`s and filled the main  road for most of the day. Last weekend was the turn of the Municipality and local residents, this was much quieter and smaller.

While i was gardening I heard these women singing in the distance and it sounded like a mass march but I was so surprised at how few arrived. The singing was very good and they were very well behaved even though they had to wait a long time to get their voices heard.

To show how ridiculous things have got, I will put a joke that was on a newspaper web site.

zuma joke

It is still very puzzling that 26 fires started in many different places at the same time. There have been some arrests for arson and theft from farms and buildings that were evacuated. The disappointing thing is that articles were stolen from the very places that were trying to help the victims of the fires. These were items like a coffee machine, pressure cooker, hot plates and other kitchen ware. This may cause people not to help next time we have an emergency.2017-06-27 22.35.05

I am still getting Hestony trucks parking outside with their refrigeration motors running all night. This time I was lucky a the Police agreed that he couldn`t. It was a restful night but I think the chicken in the back had defrosted a bit by the time he left in the morning.

Whilst cutting up a Butternut Squash these seeds were found growing inside of it, has anyone seen this before ? Some of the shoots had green on them which usually only happens when exposed to light ?

A lot has happened in this last few days, but in my opinion it should have happened years ago after his first blunder.

Do you remember when this coin would buy a box of matches ?cows head

And I thought that only wild animals got mounted. Surely this didn`t need tracking ?

This little camera makes a good carcam and can also be viewed on my smartphone while shopping, so is better than an alarm. It`s used for divers under water and divers from planes.It came with a host of mounting attachments.

My veggie garden is looking like an advert for the Spear.

There are still some old friends that come to visit so all is not lost.

It seems that spelling in school is still a problem even though we have so many departments.

During the Whale season here we don`t get photos like this very often as there seems to be quite a radicle change in the whale population.you have to go quite far out in the bay now and most of the Whales are not Southern Right Whales like they were a few years ago.

It`s quite funny how a few years ago I was building fairy houses like this for my grand children and now all they want to see is a smart phone or computer. where do the years go to as you get older ? These photos have been on earlier blogs which seems to be a form of rambling but they are from ones that never went anywhere 🙂

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year , just in case I don`t blog for a while 🙂

Well the State of the Nation address started with a lot of controversy in parliament yesterday. First we had the objections about the jamming of cell phones and the the removing of the EFF. They did cause a long delay but JZ was asked months ago to reply and hasn`t done so yet.

I wonder if the chief whip will use a` Cat o`nine tails` to keep order next.

Going with some of the most recent problems in South Africa there seems to be quite a few comedians on the net.

Zcartoon
The first was an email that was sent to ESKOM.
I am sorry that I cannot pay my bill due to your load shedding as my bank account has gone into Stage 3 load shedding.
The other was from someone in Jo`berg to JZ.
Why must I keep paying my E-TOLLS ? as I also never asked for the road upgrades.

zuma-dancing
The old one was about the commemorative stamp that won`t stick, it was found that the people were spitting on the wrong side.

There is a very good book by Zapiro that has most of our political past in it.

If you can name these people, then you have followed local events.

I always start with a sunrise because it`s the first thing in the day that brings up a discussion and usually forecasts the days weather. The winter sunrise is not very interesting because it rises up from the sea and there are not usually many clouds around.

This will be my last SA sunrise for a while as I will be traveling for the next month, so have to pack all this equipment.

I still remember Alice when she was a small piglet.

She later on had piglets of her own and treated them very well considering she had very little help.
