The Summer of '69 is nearly Upon Us! | Wow, expensive tickets. Sure, not quite as expensive as those bought by the poor people who wanted to catch that orchestral poser, Andre Rieu in action, but more than expensive enough by the standards of Craig's usually tightly drawn purse strings. But despite the expensive tickets, ... (My Life)
Cattle Baron Carvery | I attended my very first session to the well known Durbanville Cattle Baron's weekly Sunday carvery last Sunday and I must say I walked away quite impressed! Monty, Cheryl and Robert are well versed in the ways of Cattle Baron's Sunday spread, and so I guess ... (My Life)
A Shocking Way to Start One's Morning | Shame, I must say I'm quite glad that it wasn't me who had such a disastrous start to the morning as poor old C this Friday! It all started off on the wrong foot when she woke up crying thanks to a bad dream she had ... (My Life)
Our Wet Cement | So our soaked cement floor in the study, courtesy of a leaking copper pipe leading into the geyser, is almost dry at last, meaning that soon we can get the professionals in and get a new carpet laid. But just in case you don't quite ... (My Life)
Crusading for Cash | So the task of slowly emptying the house of my unwanted, unnecessary and perhaps unloved possessions, in order to generate more space now that I no longer have access to the "man room" to dump all my junk in, continues unabated. Now normally I'm a guy ... (My Life)
Breaking my XBOX Live Virginity | Last Wednesday I fiddled around a bit and managed to set up a spare desktop PC running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx to act as a Samba server, and thus act as a central point for my laptop and main desktop PC to access, and at ... (Games | My Life)
And When I'm Not Careful During Online Shopping... | Oops. Don't you just hate it when you make a mistake and can't blame anyone else but yourself for being negligent? Man, I hate it. And I just suffered a prime example of it too. Now I've taken to online shopping quite well actually, having over ... (My Life)
Photo Gallery: FIFA World Cup - Italy vs Paraguay (2010-06-14) | One of the highlights of 2010 was undoubtedly travelling through to Cape Town Stadium to witness Italy take on Paraguay in a Round 1 FIFA World Cup 2010 clash! (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Photo Gallery: Butterfly World (2010-06-13) | One of the nicest outings you can go out on here in the area is to Butterfly World, where they literally breed butterflies. Hundreds of colourful, flitting little creatures that delight both young and old. Miguel and Retha joined Chantelle and myself on this particular ... (My Life | Photo Gallery)
On Happiness and Extreme Sadness | Wow, two complete opposite sides of the emotional spectrum to deal with this past week. We'll start on the happy news side of things first, because in this case the sad news unfortunately overshadows pretty much everything else at the moment. So, the news just came in ... (My Life)
Rolling Back the Carpet | Whew. So Chantelle had Cliffie, the plumber/maintenance man they use at Gordon's Beach Lodge come and have a look at the leaking geyser and it turns out that thankfully it wasn't the geyser at fault at all! Instead, one of the copper pipes feeding into ... (My Life)
Replacing Parts | Sigh, it must be that time of year again because all of a sudden it is the time of spending big money. As we have just discovered at the start of this week, our fairly new geyser of less than three years old has gone and ... (My Life)
Funakoshi Blue Belt Status Achieved! | Last Friday has come and gone and apart from the joyous occasion of seeing my child blob in its full black and white ultrasound glory, the other highlight to come out of the day was my successful grading for blue belt under the Funakoshi style. Lack ... (Martial Arts | My Life)
And so the New Man Room 2.0 is Born! | Last weekend I kept myself rather busy, not with gallivanting around yet another luxurious guest house, playing games or watching DVDs like is the norm, no, instead I rolled up my sleeves and broke out a nice sweat as I set about stripping the current ... (My Life)
My Jellybean's Beating Heart | Last Friday was a momentous occasion for both Chantelle and myself - it marked our first ever ultrasound scan of the Jellybean, at last turning what is currently said to be so into something that is more of a concrete reality - an affirmation that ... (My Life)
Photo Gallery: Geyser Pipe Leak (2010-06-07) | Leaking pipes connected to your geyser always causes headaches... and damage! (This happened at Nagua Bay. Thankfully my PC's which were kept under the desk managed to escape damage!) (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Bye Bye Trojan: My First Ever Gumtree Experience | Did I mention yet that I actually managed to make my first ever Gumtree sale in the end? Yup, I managed to sell our Trojan elliptical trainer only a week or so after posting an online advert on Gumtree, something which proved remarkably simple, and pretty ... (My Life)
