Knysna folks – get your dogs vaccinated – distemper is nasty.

There are a couple of our young golfers in action at the SA Challenge Cup – and all made good starts yesterday. 

The Young ‘Un gets defiant and the world expects Israel just to roll over – the hypocrisy is mind-boggling!

Seems the private sector has to do the government’s work – one shining exception is Pravin Gordhan who is taking no prisoners – and the baddies are running for cover.

Mantashe vows to resurrect one of the ANC’s cash-cows – guess they need the money for t-shirts and food parcels. 

Messi boarded the flight to SA – hope he plays.  Maties and Tukkies take their age-old rivalry to the hockey field.  The Kiwis say NZ rugby would be bankrupted if SA withdraws from Super Rugby – yet NZ referees keep getting to blow matches involving NZ teams – get real people.
