Centurion cricket gives taste of what's in store

England are playing South Africa cricket at Centurion from the 16th to the 20th December, and this has no doubt pushed up flight prices (as previously warned). This is gives us a small idea of what's in store for us during next year's Soccer World Cup. Don't forget to check 1time airline prices for your Cape Town-Johannesburg flights...out of the expensive flight prices on the 18th December, they were cheapest.

xmas gift box chocolatesChocolate gift box for R75

With Christmas just round the bend, as a chocoholic I got to say I love these all chocolate Christmas Gift Boxes which Chris is making, with 8 wrapped chocolates inside (R75 each, order from Chris at 011-314-3758, (Johannesburg chocolate only at this stage).

Feed your soul

After you've fed your body with Chris's chocolates, feed your soul with the book "Kites and Butterflies". I have the utmost respect for the spirituality of the author, Harry Wiggett (so much so that I insisted on flying him to Johannesburg to marry us). "The best traditions always need rebels: poets, people who can translate the tired and the outworn, the perfunctory and the routine into language imaginatively immediate. For those within and without the institution of the church – or, like myself, clinging hopefully but questioningly to its margins – this book presents good news, a real Gospel to embrace wholeheartedly. It’s in fact very good news indeed." from the foreword by Canon Chris Chivers. You can order "Kites and Butterflies" for R80 at

Blog of the week: Priscilla & Hans visit the Blyde River Canyon

After leaving Shingwedze Priscilla & Hans saw vultures feasting on a dead elephant. After lunching themselves at Letaba they managed to dodge the car hijackers and headed for their accommodation at the Blyde River Canyon Lodge. Just outside the Blyde River Canyon they visited the Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre, which helps injured animals, and went on to see the Three Rondavels, Echo Caves, Bourke's Luck Potholes, the Berlin Waterfall, the Loco Pub at Pilgrim's Rest, the Hoedspruit Cheetah Centre, the Wildebeest Rest & Pub; before heading to Johannesburg to fly to Dubai.
