The new year came in with european zest, and widely publicised and necessary advertising about drink-drive. Very necessary - in Africa life is cheaper.

There was another car-bomb near the Waterfront - but only two people lightly injured. No responsibility claimed - the widely held belief is that it is PAGAD, a Mulsim Vigilante group People Against Gangs And Drugs, were involved.

Protestations to the contrary, but PAGAD has a chequered past, and not always following its charter.

In order to better plan my time, I am considering contracting here now, which will also put a little distance between myself and Vodacom, the Cellphone network InTouch does a lot of work for.

Andy’s Idea is looking like a CD compilation/publication with some free distribution in the near term.

I thought this year would be MIM in Roman numerals, but they have something much more boring on program credits. But programming this year will be pre-occupied with The Bug, where I have other plans.

The Bug will provide plenty of work this year though.

I went up to Worcester, to see Megan’s friend DeVilliers, and caught him starting the grape harvest, and bottling Hex Valley spring water for sale in 711’s around Cape Town.

Cheers, Andy!
