Afrikaanse Tokkel:Perdeby en spinnekop


EINA! Arme spinnekop is verlam en mevrou Perdeby karwei hom na haar nes teen my huis se muur uit.

Die volgende drie fotos het my dadelik laat dink aan Perdebytjie se storie met haar verlamde spinnekop wat sy aan die lewe probeer hou het vir n tydperk.

Can you believe it? Chocolate!


My friend presented me with this tiny box!

Chocolate craft at its best.

The chocolate layer is so thin it melts away as soon as you put it in your mouth.

Each one had a delicate taste,

lime, mint, raspberry, coconut, creme Brule

Within the Frame: The Journey of Photographic Vision by David duChemin

David says:

“Vision- the more we engage the world, the clearer our vision becomes…

(The).. discipline of cramming your vision into a frame and make it fit. “

Baby shower/stork party/ooievaars-tee


Today was Stella, my daughter in law’s baby shower. The house was decorated in a wonderland of owls, toadstools, balloons and sweet treats.

Pressies galore

Production line – Hard work


Hard work? Not at all, but very time-consuming. Concentrating is also very important.

Last weekend my son and I worked on an order of 100 raspberry pi boards.

Visit the business blog for more information.

We made  10 bundles halfway on Saturday, 10 on Sunday.

Tuesday evening we finished all 20 off, ready to go to be soldered on Wednesday!

They still need to be tested before they can be sent to the customer.

We did a great job!
