An annual highlight on the Western Cape events agenda is the Knysna Oyster Festival.  Established in 1983, it has been decided that it is fitting to celebrate the 34th Anniversary by introducing a new look and feel for the event.  There are 10 listed job vacancies at the Garden Route Municipality.  Prince Albert is a quaint, charming little village, nestled at the foot of the iconic Swartberg.  From Thursday, 4 to Sunday, 7 July, the entire village transforms into one exhibition known as Prince Albert Open Studios. And you better believe it’s something like you’ve never experienced before.

Both GolfRSA Girls and Boys continued to improve in their title defence campaigns in Thursday’s third round of the All-Africa Junior Golf Challenge in Botswana.  Christo Lamprecht 66.  Martin Vorster 71.  The latest George and Knysna Golf Club Newsletters were published yesterday.

Brexit will be delayed – no second referendum and business is asked to support May’s lame-duck deal.  The Democrats’ list of presidential hopefuls grows longer and more ridiculous.  US losing patience with Pakistan – now backing India?  The moon landing delusion is still with us.

ALL HAIL THE ANC – CORRUPTION FIGHTERS!  Candidates with criminal convictions that carry a sentence of more than 12 months have been removed from the list.  The two stooges fight over semantics.  Nene should have known better.  How sorry is Faith?

Gloomy data drags the JSE down.  Load shedding rears its ugly head again.  Business owners are still making smart decisions – and it’s infuriating the ANC.  Parliament happy with the next round of SABC looters.

Anrich Nortje wants to add some venom to the pace attack.  Lions make 4 changes for the Rebels clash.  Mercedes starting the season on the back foot again.  Orange man good is back in the Stormers line up.
