Patience Is A Virtue…….

  • Patience: what you have when there are too many witnesses
  • Everything comes to him who waits… except a loaned book.
  • Before you marry a person, you should first make them use a computer with slow internet service to see who they really are.
  • I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end.
  • I need to develop some patience — immediately.
  • Patience: The quality you admire in the driver behind you but can’t stand in the driver who’s in front of you.
  • Patience: A minor form of despair, disguised as a virtue.
  • I am patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it.

TNR Funds Collection Boxes

These are the new TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) donation boxes at both veterinary clinics (Limpopo & Savuti).

Please support the Musina TNR project. There are so many strays in Musina that we need to help.

Many thanks to both Dr. Suzanne Wohlitz & Dr. Heinrich Vollgraaff who are always available to help with sterilization. It costs about R300 per female cat and R200 per male cat.

Donations can also be paid directly to either of the veterinarian’s accounts, with the reference: Musina TNR. Please send proof of payment to Also check out the Musina TNR Facebook (click on the link), page and see what has been done for the stray cats in Musina.


What a sad, sad day for Musina.

Dave Diener, erstwhile principal of Musina Primary School, stalwart member of Messina Golf Club and a legend in his own time in Musina and beyond, passed away this morning at home, after suffering a heart attack.

Sincere condolences to Marietjie, all of the girls and Davey.

Traffic Circle Usage

This article was posted in January 2016, on this site.

It bears repeating, especially now that we have 3 traffic circles.

“This; is a link to the Arrive Alive website, and in particular the page dealing with the use of traffic circles (roundabouts).

The three circles in Musina on the N1 outside the Musina Mall show frequent lack of knowledge of these rules. The driving schools and examiners in Musina must ensure that all students/ candidates know exactly how to use the circles.

Of particular concern is the current practice by taxi drivers to stop either in the approach to the circle, or, believe it or not, in the circle itself for passengers to alight or enter. Many drivers, and here, I have seen police, army and traffic police vehicles do this when approaching town from the north and encounter the circle opposite the N1 Business Centre, don’t bother to keep left around the circle, but take a short-cut around the right-hand side of it!

I’m not sure where all of the Traffic Wardens are, who were all over town prior to the festive season, but a few should be detailed at each of the circles to deal with transgressors.”
