Grunt - 26 March 2015
Grunt - 26 March 2015 This is the very last Grunt. It has been decided that, after 280 columns, a change is needed. That’s the way it goes, I guess. But, it’s a sad moment for me...
Grunt - 19 March 2015
Grunt - 19 March 2015 From quite early on in my life, I’ve had this love of flying. It’s never mattered whether I was in a Boeing 747 or in a glider, the exhilaration and the magic...
Grunt - 12 March 2015
Grunt - 12 March 2015 I first came to Bloemfontein at the very end of 1982. And the original plan was to stay for five years: to get to know the city, the place where I’d be working, etc...
Grunt- 5 March 2015
Grunt- 5 March 2015 I must say the older I get, the stranger the world becomes. I read of a case the other day of a woman who has been on Death Row in the State of Georgia since 1998. In...
Grunt - 26 February 2015
Grunt - 26 February 2015 Of course, many folks throughout the country and, indeed, the world, were shocked by the sudden death of André P Brink, not least because of its rather strange...
Grunt - 19 February 2015
Grunt - 19 February 2015 I like shopping. I like malls. It’s just that I often have a problem with all the people who want to do their shopping in malls while I’m there. Of course, I...
Grunt- 12 February 2015
Grunt- 12 February 2015  To whine and moan about service delivery is pretty much par for the course these days. In fact, when you get good service, you’re either surprised or silenced...
Grunt - 05 February 2015
Grunt - 05 February 2015 I was listening to Sir Ken Robinson on TED talks on the web. If you haven’t explored TED talks, I’d like to suggest that you do so. It’s a...
Grunt- 29 January 2015
Grunt- 29 January 2015  I was heading home last Sunday after doing some shopping. It was the time when the congregation of a church nearby was heading either for home or elsewhere –...
Grunt- 22 January 2015
Grunt- 22 January 2015  A strange thing happened last week, although the story goes back to 1975. My wife and a teacher friend of hers were having coffee, chatting, and catching up on...
Grunt - 15 January 2015
Grunt - 15 January 2015 So the silly season is finally over. And not a minute too soon as far as I’m concerned: profiteering running rampant. They say the problem with common sense is...
Grunt - 18 December 2014
Grunt - 18 December 2014 I’d just begun to write this piece last Sunday evening – we were in East London and it was about 10 pm – when load shedding plunged us into total...
Grunt - 11 December 2014
Grunt - 11 December 2014 This weekend, I’m writing this piece in East London. We drove down, our journey interrupted on several occasions by roadworks and their accompanying stop-goes. Some...
Grunt - 04 December 2014
Grunt - 04 December 2014 On our way to the Waterfront last week, we found ourselves in a long convoy of cars and lorries trapped behind an extremely slow construction vehicle. At first, it was...
Grunt - 27 November 2014
Grunt - 27 November 2014 I wonder if I’m the only soul in this town who feels profoundly fed up with being asked to pay outrageous prices – an example: a small glass of really nasty...
Grunt - 20 November 2014
Grunt - 20 November 2014 Some Sundays, I sit in front of the laptop screen and realise I’m stumped. I’ve got nothing to say. Usually, I reflect on the week, remembering what struck me...
Grunt - 13 November 2014
Grunt - 13 November 2014 From time to time, I explore a number of web sites that offer strange news. Strange news has little or nothing to do with the political shenanigans that fill up so much...
Grunt - 06 November 2014
Grunt - 06 November 2014 My wife and I were having lunch the other day at one of those nice places where there is a sort of smorgasbord of beautifully cooked food. You dollop a bit of this and a...
Grunt - 30 October 2014
Grunt - 30 October 2014 My father always said that a man only ever needed to buy one evening suit in his lifetime. I suggested that perhaps such a suit might go out of fashion over the years....
Grunt - 23 October 2014
Grunt - 23 October 2014 As you may well know, I sit in front of my laptop on Sundays evenings, waiting for inspiration. I stare at the screen until something strikes me. It’s a waiting...
