Friday Morning Edition

Good morning all,


Oudtshoorn’s water will be murky for the next few days, but it’s a small price to pay for the rain.  The OCC has won the Premier’s Event Pitching Competition.

Sonja Bland wins Senior trophy at SA Mid-Amateur Championship & Louis leads by a mile at Sun City.  The latest George and Knysna Golf Club Newsletters.

Hong Kong moves closer to the edge.  Dems continue with their ‘hearsay is better than facts’ charade today.  Finally, someone nails it, the war on Trump is motivated bt fear and not hate – the elite know what’s coming and the rest will believe whatever they’re told to believe.

SAA strike continues, but there’s always a chance of a happy ending – like privatization.  Seems TransNet is not doing things above board after all.  Second tornado hits KZN – now let’s wait for the climate change alarmists spin this one.  

Rand holding its own – maybe others are really worse off than us.  SAA says no work no pay – maybe they’ve found the way to save money?

Bafana get their butts whipped by Ghana.  Blitz pile agony on the Stars – mmm – where are those looking for a captaincy referendum now?  Rassie pushing the unity thing – turns out we like winning more than we like each other?
