I am a firm believer in the freedom of knowledge, i.e. acquiring knowledge should be free, and knowledge will set you free (sprititually, physically, politically and financially). This website is therefore a disorganised basket(case) of interesting, trivial, stupid and unnecessary information I affectionately call my knowledge.
As for the name of this website, well, I live in the southern Cape region of South Africa; which is not to be confused with the South Coast region of KwaZulu-Natal, which lies on the eastern part of South Africa and where the shoreline faces east … the East Coast lies on the southeastern part of the country … apparently we have a serious problem with direction, which explains why we never ask for any and neither should you.
Nothing much happens, or happened, here. The only real excitement is watching nails rust or fleecing “Vaalpense” during the December holidays. So we amuse ourselves the other eleven months by writing books (shameless plug for my publishing business, Groenheide Boeke) and complaining that having the best municipality in the country just simply isn’t good enough. Oh, January to March is usually spent cleaning up after the “Vaalpense,” who incidently prefer bringing their supplies with them … wonder why?
For those wishing to visit the southern Cape (the region, not this website), I suggest using one of the many flights from Johannesburg to Cape Town and then renting a car (all of which for some reason have GP plates, so you’ll still be cognito), instead of driving through the O.F.S. (where, I understand, the difference between a pothole and a meteorite crater is not easily discerned).
Browse around, and drop me a line … but the books are not for sale and I don’t do research (what’s on the website is what I’ve got on the subject).
