Must be retrentched or fired I think.
Get on Skype to the one still overseas, demand all their money. Obviously soft peddle it more than that.

There you go.
Nah, I'll rather sell my property then asking my kids for money. The other one is back home studying.

Do what SauCer and Sardy are telling you. Exhaust every other option first.

If that doesn't work, do what I'm saying. If you end up worse off, it's going to your child overseas picking up the pieces with you anyway and from a worse position, may as well get them involved now.

Oom, 23 years ago I was living on the streets in Joeys in Winter, all things pass as will this. Make sure anyone who wants to foreclose on advises you of the process. No-one is serving summons now. Negotiate payment holidays and grow a thick vel.

Ox, do you have any articles about Zuma links to underground cigarette trade? Not that I find it difficult to believe, would just like to read more.

Hell...but that looks very lekker!

I've been able to dop beers during lockdown...but I've really missed having a nice draught from the tap, like the one pictured above, at a pub with my mates!

I am thinking of holding a "religious gathering " at my house on Monday evening. There will be 6 or 7 (way less than 50) of us who all hold the same "beliefs". We will have "communion" and "sacrifice" a few animal parts while maintaining social distancing.
There will be no hugging and no hymns will be sung.

For an epicure, or even most braai addicts, paganism would be the perfect religion.

Somebody gifted me a bottle of OBS. In which they soaked a daggaplant for five weeks (they say). Smells like it , though.

Says it is for "medicinal use". Pain, arthritis etc.
God save us. I think I feel some pain coming

Die vrou is die moer in vir my. Ox gave me an idea the other day so I took her pressure cooker and turned it into a homemade still. I've started with my first batch of turksvy mampoer. Should keep my well insulated against the winter cold this year.

Boere-tequila

Someone I know is busy stoking "vodka" from potatoes ..
I was gifted "beer" from apples, (piss weak) and a "coffee" beer (strong as hell, ferments famously, now has a texture and strength not unlike Milk Stout.

Basically not much of a drinker, I find these "home crafts" interesting..

A few guys over here are making the "vodka" but they're not distilling only fermenting. It looks like dishwater and tastes like potato peels. No way I'm putting that kak in me. The pynapple/apple cider is a better bet but only if you follow proper hygiene and take your time with the fermenting. You have to sterilise everything you use to make beer and it takes at least a week to ferment under perfect conditions and it needs to stand for at least two weeks in the bottle before you can drink it. The guys are putting the stuff in an old bucket today and drinking it two days latter. It still tastes of anchor and will give you spuitpoep.

You are missing Chilli's point.

It is perfectly legal to hold a ceremony of public worship with 50 people.

It is not legal to have a braai in your back garden with half a dozen of your friends.

There is no logic.

The "vodka" will go through a propperse stookketel (mamper style). Mampoerwèreld, hierdie.

The coffee beer has been aging for fourteen days, already, actually looks and tastes like a beer. The apple is ... Glorified cider.

We will.grow, as a national , whilst this corona continues.

You have to use a lot of apples and sugar to make proper cider. And don't use any type of sweet apples. Granny Smith is perfect for cider.
