SPOTLIGHT

Brammer Gas Brammer Gas (gas.brammerplumbing.com) developed as part of Brammer Plumbing (brammerplumbing.com) due to the increasing demand for gas equipment and solar/gas energy saving combinations. Launching at the beginning of 2016, BG is now servicing all the gas equipment (including hobs, stoves, fireplaces and gas geysers and solar combinations) and installation requirements for the same in the Western Cape. We also offer compliance certification on all gas and/or plumbing installations and have a number of references available confirming the quality of our work. For a free quotation, my contact details are: 083 272 8807 or stevenbrammer@gmail.com

Hands on Agripreneur Hands on Agripreneur is the trade name for the micro businesses Good Hope Free Range Eggs and Empower Green Living, operated from Capri farmland by Einstein Sibanda. Good Hope Free Range Eggs is a poultry farm producing free range eggs for the surrounding community and local restaurants, and Empower Green Living provides fresh produce as well as teaches people how to grow their own food gardens. Einstein came to South Africa from Zimbabwe in 2008 and worked in gardens to earn money. He then started a food garden and did a 3-year course through Living Hope on starting your own business and farming. Einstein now empowers people with this knowledge to grow their own food and subsist off the land, especially in poorer areas like Masiphumelele. He says “I don’t earn a cent from my business. Once in a while I take some eggs home for supper. My latest venture is a way for me to make a living from what I love. There are many doors opening for me and I thank God for that, this is due to big demand for my products” “I come from a farming family in Zimbabwe and my family name is Handson”

The Billboard November 2016 The Billboard November 2016


20 years! Yes, that’s right. As from our next issue in December,The Billboard will have been the market leading print medium for the people, both advertisers and readers alike, of the Far South of the Cape Peninsula. Thousands upon thousands of transactions of all types have been successfully negotiated and concluded and, in a recent Reader Survey, it was unquestionably stated that readers overwhelmingly use The Billboard to find local businesses for their needs and, in fact, prefer to use local businesses over outsiders. 19000 copies of the magazine are delivered each and every month to households and businesses from Simon’s Town across the south to as far as Tokai, Meadowridge and Bergvliet. Originally an advertising only magazine, we have in recent years introduced competitions, puzzles, jokes, a tide table, local events and, in recent times a wide variety of editorials, including motors and property. This is to involve the readers more and so attract even better response for our advertisers. The Billboard has recently been joined by its sister website, www.thebillboard.co.za, as well as Facebook pages and Twitter, so we can now safely say that we’re the leading print and online medium in the Far South. For more information, contact Barbara or Lesley on 021-782 7136.

COMMON MOTORING MISTAKES

The daft things people do A little knowledge is usually worse than knowing nothing about a particular subject. This is certainly true in the automotive world, and explains why people often jump to the wrong conclusion with great alacrity. Here’s a list of some of the things that you should not do: • Top of the list must be removing a thermostat when an engine overheats. This is the correct thing to do if the thermostat has failed in the closed position, but most of the time it makes more sense to first find out why the engine is overheating. Removing the thermostat will cause the engine to take longer to warm-up as well as cause the engine temperature to fluctuate as more or less power is demanded by the driver. This will increase the possibility of the engine wearing out prematurely. • When overheating occurs most people suspect the radiator fan. It’s important to know that this fan is only needed at speeds below about 80 km/h, so that if the engine overheats at cruising speeds the fault must lie somewhere else. Most modern fans are electrically driven so that they don’t rob the engine of power while cruising but are available at low speeds and even after parking, if the engine needs cooling down.

• If the gears start to grate while changing it’s natural to suspect the gearbox. Most of the

time you will be wrong, because it’s usually a sign that the clutch pedal play is in need of adjustment. • People often fit bigger wheels and tyres because this will cause the engine to rotate slower at any given vehicle speed than before the change. Theoretically this is supposed to result in better fuel consumption, and it occasionally does. Most of the time it doesn’t. The result will depend on the gear ratios chosen by the manufacturer. In most cases the change will be so small that you can hardly measure it. • Many motorists, especially the older ones, tend to stay in the highest gear as much as possible while driving. Engines don’t like that; they feel just as much stress if forced to operate in a high gear as you would feel if you attempt to go up a hill on your bicycle in a high gear. When the car’s speed drop because of the gradient the best (and kind) thing to do is to change to a lower gear. That is what an automatic transmission would do. The lower gears should be used freely in town traffic. • Most people think that an idling engine cannot overheat or wear out because it carries no load. Nothing could be further from the truth. Letting an engine idle for a long time is one of the severe tests that manufacturers put their engines through. An engine can only idle reliably if it gets a slightly richer than normal mixture. Some of this extra fuel does not combust but migrates past the piston rings into the sump where it contaminates the oil. Over time this will increase an engine’s rate of wear.

5 SIGNS TO LOOK OUT FOR WHEN BUYING A HOUSE

1

. LOCATION! Location is the most important factor when buying a property. Rather buy the worst house in the best area than the best house in the worst area. A property’s location will determine it’s value, as well as it’s eventual resale value, making it imperative to buy in the right area. If a house is in the right area , it’s time to start looking at the property itself. A bad house can be fixed, but a good house cannot be moved out of a bad area.

2

. The Garden While great garden maintenance isn’t essential to a property sale, the state of the garden tells buyers a lot about the current owner and how they’ve cared for the property.

3

. Stains and cracks Water stains, discolouration caused by mold and large cracks on the walls can all be indications of bigger problems.

The owners may have resolved the causes behind the stains and cracks, but it would be wise for the buyer to ask questions and ask for proof of corrections should they decide to buy the property. . Parking Most homeowners also own a car, and secure parking is a big advantage for any property.

4 5

. Bathrooms and kitchens Main selling points are normally the bathrooms and kitchens, which can be very expensive to renovate. Well maintained, properly fitted kitchens and bathrooms are strong factorsthat make a house appealing, and can influence a sale. It’s important for buyers to take their time in these spaces. Open the taps,test the water pressure, switch on the lights, or even test the gas stove. Buyers are also entitled to ask questions about plumbing and electricity, and find out when last any work was done. This is to make sure that the house has been well maintained. PROPERTY 24

LESSONS / COACHING

Digital Photography tips by Gareth Griffiths www.professionalphotoshoots.co.za

Making it memorable Photographing individuals and groups of people is something really easy to improve provided you follow some simple guidelines. The first is - every picture should tell just one story. Select one interesting subject and compose your image around that. It might well be interesting facial expressions or animated poses by everyone. Put your subject at the centre, but try not to fit in too much. Rather take more than one photo with different themes. 50

The second is to watch the background. A busy background will detract from your picture story e.g. plant life, especially those spiky plants, in the garden. Move the subject to a neutral background and step them forward from that background as far as possible. Finally, watch your focus and exposure. Most cameras auto-focus and you should ensure that your chosen subject is the one that is in focus. One fantastic feature of the digital camera is that it costs very little to practice until your photos become perfect. More on focus andexposure in the next editorial.
