The Sitrus Spens Is Open!

The Sitrus Spens is open, for the season!

Situated just 10km west of Tshipise, Isabel is ready for the season. From Thursday this week, jaarlemoen will be in stock. Currently, they have Cara Caras, (red flesh navels – delicious), tight skin naartjies, also with a delicious flavour and Star Ruby grapefruit, as well as lots of fresh veggies and freshly squeezed fruit juices.

The Plaas Kombuis is still serving the most delicious meals, and sweet tarts and cake.

Do yourself a favour and take the drive – it’s worth it.

For the first time, the Sitrus Spens offers card facilities, for a small consideration.

(Just look at that lemon meringue tart in the background – Yum!)

Political Party Fervour

One must assume that the political parties vying for the upcoming election have some control over their canvassers – those who are plastering posters on every available surface.

Here are two instances where the placards are just wrongly placed.

Baobabs are protected species, no-one is allowed to deface or mark them in any way, yet, the EFF, with impunity, has affixed theirs to a baobab, as in the picture.

The same person who sent the images reports that the ANC has similarly defaced a baobab at the Elegant Fuel Filling Station. The baobab is a symbol of our town and province and deserves some respect.

It goes beyond trees. The ANC has, to my mind, shown absolute disrespect to their forebears, by posting their posters on the memorial in the Civic Centre grounds.

Have they no shame? This is a symbol of the cultural heritage of our region.

You can be sure, that as in years gone by, after the election, the posters will just be left where they are, getting more and more tatty and making our town even uglier than it currently is, until they eventually rot away.
