    We had a full lunar eclipse last night.
    Totality was at 3:30am. I set my alarm for 3 am - it went off, I rolled over, and fell asleep again.
    Missed the whole event. :(

    So this is not so much a happened to me as it is a watched by me ...

    It's in German in case you get worried that you're having a stroke :lol:

    Anyway, the thing to take away from the video is how someone paid Euros 17 000 and it took a year for them to complete the installation in a dentist's office.

    The presenter is a little less than impressed with the workmanship, quality of goods and the fact that the seller offered discus and rays in one tank. :eek:

    This isn't the first tank I have seen of Rays and Discus.
    Not sure I would have taken the chance

    Monday morning :(
    Long weekend came and went far too quickly.

    Thursday and Friday the weather was nice.
    Spent most of both days in the garden.
    Had multiple braais.

    Weather on Sat and Sunday was rubbish.
    But was still nice to be able to chill at home

    When my car died last year, and I was forced to replace it, I was not happy.
    New car is a hybrid, and with hindsight, I am so pleased. My fuel bill halved at the time, so it certainly has been worth while

    I'm thinking of going electric or hybrid next. When I moved here I paid R240 a full tank, a year ago in this car R320, now it's R900+ and I go through a tank a week. So it's really escalated really fast.
