Friday Morning Edition

Good morning all,


Congratulations to Duhan vd Merwe – what a beautiful story of redemption!  Local news update.

Recognition for SWD’s cricketers.  The latest George & Pinnacle Point Golf Club Newsletters.

I’m done commenting on the political situation in America.  The choice is clear.  The day of reckoning is here for those who have been abusing their power – in the US, and hopefully, in SA as well.  

Ace’s former minions turn on him – better late than never I guess.  

Eskom grabs at straws – anything besides actually fixing the entity and collecting its revenue.

Liverpool hasn’t missed van Dijk – yet.  The Wallabies can’t play rugby, but at least they got this one right.
