Afrikaans is a very gutteral language, it is the best language for cursing
. . . . none of that used above though

Gerald,
I wonder if the language when spoken correctly sounds as interesting as it reads to a Canadian?

To me, it looks like English, German and Dutch. I'll have to do my homework.

Kobus, no problem - I am sure that you not in the parliament, or with Nersa, are not. (double negative in Afrikaans)
Have you last week the machine seen?

I was actually more curious as to what a geyser is? The link you posted for the power outage alerts tells people to shut off their geysers.

Why not, I will see Sean sometime after 13:00 at his shop in Woodstock.
I like to go to Snoekies in Houtbay for a piece of fried Snoek and chips when I visit Cape Town, so that is my first priority after I have landed at 10:20 from Johannesburg.

Does everyone go to snoekies automatically when hitting Cape Town? ... it's usually my first stop as well ... doesn't get fresher I suppose ...

Kobus ... you are welcome to come and see our mess.

Regards

Linus

....and the first thing you do is to take her to a dodgy fish & chip shop on the wrong side of the harbour to eat New Zealand barracouta sold here as snoek? No wonder she let you go away for a looong time!

We could always hold an "official training course" with curriculum & certificates, so that your whole trip becomes tax deductible

Gerald,

If you are going to have an offical training session, please tape so that the long distance attendees can view and get certified also.

I read the article in the New Yorker. Does the fried Snoek, in your fish and chips, have bones in it? Fish and chips is one of my favorite meals but I don't think I'd care for it with bones.

Standard fish & chips is practically boneless, the fish used is "hake". (cod or "stock fish").

Snoek is by special request only. The bones in snoek are easily pulled out because they are about 3" long.

Gerald,
I have had fish and chips with cod or halibut or ocean perch but I have never seen snoek available in Canada. Do you prefer it over the others I have mentioned?

ps Your power consumption looks high today, does that mean you had outages?

Hake is my family's favorite fish. We practically get in fist fights over it. Great texture and taste. I only know of one source around here so if they sell it at fish and chips joints in SA, we'll be on the next plane over.

Linus must be getting tired of the smell in his thread . . . .

Snoek is not a particular favourite of mine - I prefer the freshest fish available on the day.

My factory power is out 12 noon till about 2.15pm every day since last Monday, except for last Friday. We now have battery inverters and a generator to see us through that patch.

Let's give this thoroughly abused thread back to Linus now

Thank you Gerald and Sean for the time at the shop. It was nice to look the beast in the eye. Now I can't wait to get going with my own. Mine will take some time, but I hope I can have it done before the end of this year.

Nice meeting you as well Alan.

Too the rest, we had a niece piece of Snoek and chips at Houtbay... http://www.houtbay.org/ ...on Thursday afternoon. When we left the local fishermen just came ashore with FRESH Snoek...sold them for R 30.00 per fish....BIG ones fresh from the boat.
