A quarter of the year, 2017, is gone. In the larger scope of things, that is certainly no laughing matter considering that the clock ticks past a particular second in time, but once. But before gloom gets the upper hand, consider this, that South Africans truly have most commendable innate ability to see the humour in the direst of situations. The worse things become, it seems, the faster the turnaround in softening the blow by finding something - Read more...

My kitten, not even four months old, was very ill. Despite several hospital visits and all the prayers in the world, she suffered from an illness from which she could never recover. In the very short while I had her, she has brought to me the joy only an animal can give: unconditional love, she made me laugh when she brought dried leaves in from the garden to play with, she made a huge hole in our curtain by climbing and swinging on it, - Read more...

Why the on-going emigration of born and bred South Africans to foreign countries whose history and lifestyle are far removed from theirs?  Our communities enjoy a rich mix of colour, creed, culture and language. On the streets, workplace, homes and sports-fields, this beautiful and intricate mosaic is reflected in the lives of law-abiding folk who seek a happy and safe environment. Not Zuma, his cronies and crime. South Africa has some of the - Read more...

Chatterbox by Tanya Watson
I grew up in an artistic home. My parents love art, and have been collecting it for years. And since a young age, I've was drawn to Vincent van Gogh's art.In high school, I 'copied' his paintings every chance I got - my favourite by far was 'Starry Night'.It's like you could feel his emotion in that painting. Unfortunately, it was also the last painting I ever madeUntil 2 months ago when I started taking art lessons again. My hand is still - Read more...

Jou lewe word in seisoene geleef, en om vrugbaar te wees moet jy die seisoen herken waarin jy is en die beste daaruit haal. 'Hoe weet ek wanneer 'n seisoen eindig?' vra jy. Omdat die genade wat saam met die seisoen gekom het verby sal wees, en wat eens belonend gevoel het, nie meer so voel nie.  Die Bybel sê dat 'n suksesvolle man of vrou soos 'n boom is wat langs 'n rivier geplant is, 'wat vrugte dra op die regte tyd.' Jy kan net in jou seisoen - Read more...

Scooters are making a comeback. Not surprisingly, given the punitive price of fuel based on a skewed formula reminiscent of cricket’s Duckworth-Lewis. And drivers of these two-wheeled midgets are able to slip in and out of heavy traffic like daredevils slaloming on waterskis. And the latest ones come in all colours. A bright blue one whizzed past me on the freeway recently. The driver was Rosey, our favourite cameriere, doffed out in a yellow - Read more...

Kantlyn | Margin by Cornelle Carstens
‘n Groef en ‘n graf verskil net in diepte. Die wie, wat, waar en wanneer die stelling sy oorsprong gehad het, het vervaag, maar die trefkrag daarvan, beslis nie. In ‘n dorp soos Mosselbaai, met ‘n noemenswaardige populasie van seniors, is ‘n mens deeglik bewus van die feit dat die wêreldtendens dié van ‘n ouerwordende samelewing is. Mense, veral in eerste wêreldlande, leef eenvoudig langer danksy goeie gesondheidsorg. Volgens statistiek verskaf - Read more...

Steering this ship is an onerous task and has never been more so than now. My father gave me a copy of the writings of Kahlil Gibran's. I never intended becoming a journalist, but from a very young age learnt this from The Prophet. "The moving finger writes and having writ moves on: nor all thy piety nor witShall lure it back to cancel half a line,Nor all thy tears wash out a word of it.” What people very often do not understand is how heavily - Read more...

'Minder is meer' is deesdae die gonswoord. Die bekende Marie Kondo is reeds geruime tyd 'n voorstaander om die dinge wat mens om jou opgaar uit te sorteer en te verminder.  'n Nuwe beweging het vanjaar die lig gesien - die '100-Besittings' kultusbeweging steun die idee dat mens slegs 100 items moet besit, items wat werklik vir jou van waarde is en dit sluit klereasie in, inteendeel die kultus glo mens moet slegs 10 kledingstukke in jou kas hê. - Read more...

My skoonpa het op 'n keer gesê 'n skaap kan nie 'reverse' nie. Ek wou nog altyd vir 'n skaapboer vra of dit waar is of nie. Van skape weet ek min, maar van sommige mense is dit beslis waar. Om te 'reverse' is meer ingewikkeld as wat dit klink. Dit beteken jy moet op 'n punt kom waar jy besef jy is besig om verkeerd te loop, dan moet jy stop, herbesin en 'reverse' tot op 'n plek waar jy bestekopname kan doen voordat jy op 'n ander pad vorentoe - Read more...

Every now and then someone in Mossel Bay claims to have seen "strange lights" in the sky. Do you think these might be the lights of UFOs or other extra-terrestrial craft?
Yes: Possibly. The universe is huge. They could be flying craft from some star in an unknown galaxy.
Mossel Bay Advertiser 20%
No: There must be a logical, earthly explanation for the lights. Perhaps they are emergency flares or the lights from some sort of night flying exercise. Reflection or particles in the atmosphere might make the lights appear larger.
