That's bad hey. Having water restrictions is bad enough but rationing that takes on a whole new level

Maybe it's time to start to de-salt the sea plenty of water there

Plans are in the pipeline, or so I believe, to do just that and build some desalinating plants along the coast line. But whether the tenders have gone out, been approved or are still in the discussion stage I cannot say. Sure I heard something about one or more being online sometime in ....... February? There's more than enough sea water available to us in Cape Town but just how much can be converted to drinkable water every day and how this will be linked to our current water system I don't know. Believe the cost of this is also astronomical.

Happy B-day Merv!
(If he still reads this infectious thread )



Merv b-day.jpg



My version of negative Star Sign traits based on (narrow) experience:

Aries - impulsive
Taurus - hot-headed
Gemini - scatter-brained
Cancer - manipulative
Leo - egotistical
Virgo - over-protective
Libra - indecisive
Scorpio - kinky
Sagittarius - self-centred
Capricorn - insensitive
Aquarius - demanding
Pisces - dreamy

Now I would rather classify Scorpio something different than a pervert. Start on Valentines Day and see where you end up 9 months later.

Best not to take me too seriously in the lounge Jan - just some "worst" concepts, I'm sure it doesn't apply to most let alone 1/12th of everyone :-)

Did not take it serious Brian. Being a Scorpion must make us special seeing our Valentine connection.

Definitely doesn't apply to me. I'm not indecisive. Or, at least, most times I can make up my mind about what decision I wish to make. Although even if I were it's not the worst characteristic on that list. Pervert?

It was a personal dig at a couple of Scorpions I know, not meant to come across as rude but I saw afterwards that I had dropped my kindness precautions too much... sorry

Will edit it now to "kinky"
