Loeriesfontein is the most beautiful place in the world. The beautiful Karoo sunsets, the long stretched out views of valleys and great plains and the plant life that you might miss if you dont climb out and take a closer look.

(unfortunately due to WordPress’s new upload function only two images made it through the upload.)

The Cape Town Bike festival is cancelled

Unfortunately the biggest bike show in Africa was cancelled. No more Cape Town Bike Festival and band some folks were looking forward, Seether. The Cape Town Bike Festival said this was because a lack of people buying tickets.

“Two weeks ago the company was still hopeful we would be able sell enough tickets to make the event happen on advice that an event like the CTBF is a walk-in event and that significant ticket sales would only start happening closer to the event,”

How to start a movement

I love this video, found it while browsing. Its about how to start a movement, very interesting how the first person looks like an idiot but at the end he is the hero that started the movement

Australian police strips woman of her “clothes”

Well not exactly, as she screams in the video that the police cant really decide what is clothing or what is not so.. Anyway, the Australian police is clearly in the wrong here like their US counterparts they seem to not have a ounce of common sense. They forcefully rip and cut the tent leaving the woman in the middle of town without clothes.

Designer-Maker Xmas Market 2011

Following on the success of two previous Designer-Maker Markets, the historic Evangelical Lutheran Church (circa 1780), the oldest operating church in Cape Town, and The Freeworld Design Centre will jointly host the third festive exhibition and market.

This combined event will take place from 14-16 December at the Freeworld Design Centre courtyard, along Cape Town’s Fan Walk. The church’s popular annual Carols by Candlelight is a non-denominational event that takes place within the church itself on the evening of 14 December. Visitors to the market will be able to enter the church from the courtyard. There is no cost to attend either the market or the carols. The market will run for a further two days after the opening carols event, and is in aid of the church’s children’s home.

Wednesday, December 14, 2011 at 3:30pm until Friday, December 16, 2011 at 6:30pm

Why the power failed yesterday in Helderberg

According to Eskom, on Sunday one of their substations located at Firgrove was on fire. A lot of homes were left without electricity in Strand, Gordons Bay and Somerset West. The fire caused a transformer to fail.

The power failure did not have anything to do with the Koeberg power station as some sources claimed.
