A warm hallo from a sunny seriously cool South Africa! Every sunray bravely tries to announce the approaching Spring but the wintercoat mothballs might have to wait for a while. At least all the Wine, food and Arts festivals are hot enough to keep up the Spirits.

Archbishop Tutu once said “we South Africans continue to amaze, and most amazing of all we amaze ourselves”, so in spite of all sorts of economic pressures, dysfunctional local governments etc etc, we manage still to come up with so many instances of service and product excellence.

Jolly good show for local talent in My Casa The production of My Casa at this year’s Kalfiefees is a celebration of local talent in action. Not only is it the only original show at the arts festival – its opening night will be at 18:00 on August 10 at the De Wet Hall in Onrus – it combines an abundance of talent into an exclusively local production. While much of the material has been written by the three performers, they also incorporate the words of other Overberg writers. Old masters such as Jan Rabie and Uys Krige feature, as do contemporary poets like Michael Cope, Jean-Jacques de Chaval and Jasper van Zyl. ..More
