Your best set of wheels

Ever had a vehicle or two that you will never forget, they brought a smile to your face and a feeling of sprightlyness whenever you turned on the ignition or looked at it ? Mine were a Land Rover Discovery 3, a pre-70's Land Cruiser shorty and a specific Suzuki Katana of the few bikes I owned. For those of you who have not tried classic wet shaving; that special ride IS classic wet shaving, all the other ho-hum cars that you hardly remember are cartridge razors, gel in a can and disposable razors.

Last year Gauteng experienced water shortage problems and now the Western Cape is on a road to a disaster, this despite the fact that many responsible citizens have cut their consumption dramatically. The two metros are not the only areas where water scarcity threatens to disrupt the lives of millions of people and animals, it is fact that very few areas in our country can boast surplus, or even adequate water availability.

Your country needs you..

In a stagnating economy where the government is failing to grow it by supporting those who create jobs, the best thing we can do is to support and start small businesses. Unlike popular belief, small businesses don't put larger one's out of business, and even if they did, they would absorb all their employees and create lots of additional jobs in the process. Let's take P&G (Gilette) in our country as example. By what we can gather on the internet they employ between 300 and 800 people locally. They produce many lines of products, from disposable nappies to batteries, let's...


Dad & son stuff

Dad & son stuff

I often reminisce over my younger years when I see pictures of a father showing his son how to shave, to me it is one of the few lessons in life that is reserved for us men and an experience that should be cherished and enjoyed. I was not privileged to share that with my dad, and if you are are around my age (just over mid 40's), a South African and 'of European descent', chances are you were not that lucky either. There are a few reasons for this life's lesson passing me by, for one, my dad sported a beard for much of...
