I'd be fine with this. Provided that there is no chance of the Sharks putting together a team, it would make sense to give the Cheetahs a crack at the semi.

Re: Best place in the world to swim/kayak with dolphins?

I'm just back from the coast and there are plenty of dolphins off the north coast of Kenya, especially Malindi or Watamu. Thanks to the drop in tourists and pollution, they are now very close to shore. That area is protected by a reef off shore so the waters are quite calm, so you can go quite far o...

I have a feeling this is all related to the USA expats who want to buy WP.

My feeling is this is being used to put pressure on WP to accept the offer. It is an old ne...

Due to the high numbers of asymptomatic cases here, the government has rolled out a "care from home" program and it has emptied the hospitals and quarantine centres. It was worked quite well, considering the experts seem to think we're going to get hit in August.
