Re: Your favourite South African music?

Huge fan of lucky Dube. I've heard his music played pretty much in every African country I've traveled to. Johnny Clegg has a special place in my heart. Other notable mentions are Just Jinger, Springbok Nude Girls, Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Even PJ Powers brings back good memories :blush: I love Spr...

Re: Coronavirus update - South Africa progress

Cashing in your pension and starting a new business in these times is extremely risky. I get supporting a fellow SA'n in trouble and egging ( 8) ) him on, but I'd be extremely cautious. In fact, I wouldn't do it.

I try to support local restaurants as far as I can. I do have one question and I'm happy to be corrected if you think I'm wrong.

Should the prices the restaurants are charging not be quite a bit lower than their normal prices? We're paying extra for delivery (which is fair).
