Excellent Service !

We ran out of the gas that our stove uses a few days ago. When I saw the size of the bottles I honestly thought we were going to have a problem getting replacements as they’re quite big, and when full, must weigh quite a bit. So I did what I usually do, I asked Google for help.

I found a website that offered the size gas bottles I needed and promised free delivery. So I used the enquiry facility and sent them an email. Imagine my surprise when I got a call about 2 hours later.  A guy named Craig, took down my order and my address. I said I’d call him back the next day to arrange payment and confirm a delivery date.

So I phone him to get their banking details, and he tells me they’ll be delivering in about half an hour ! I was quite taken aback. In this day and age, I’ve become so accustomed to bad service, when I encounter good service, it’s like a breath of fresh air. I made the payment to them, faxed them proof and voila !

Scored some browning points with the Wife, and  we now have enough gas to last us until 2012 !

Craig can be contacted on 011 392 2136.

The weekend is here, as are the storm clouds, filled with the promise of rain. This weekend, my team, The Bulls, will get beaten by the Blues. I’m relying on the Sharks to thump the Reds with a bonus point, which will put them back in second position on the log The Stormers, beat the Force, something I didn’t think was possible, well done Rassie !

The other event on this weekends calendar, is the election in Zimbabwe. I’d like to take this opportunity, to congratulate Rob, as I’m sure he’ll have arranged to steal the result, regardless of how many honest folks, go and try and vote him out.  There is also take of pre-emptive load shedding from Monday onwards, by our good friends at the energy supply commission. We can now look forward to sitting in the dark for about 4 hours, every second day. Then fighting our way through the traffic, to sit for another 2 hours at home. I’m honestly glad they aren’t responsible for generating the air we breathe !

Just read that the cricket isn’t going so well, India were 468/1 at close ( can we have Gary Kirsten back please ? I owe, I owe, it’s off to work I go.

Manuel on his way out?

Candles in the wind.

A good friend of mine is getting married on Spring Day. I’d like to take this oppertunity to wish him and Goose, a solid gold future together. May the road always rise up to meet your feet (or wheels). May you guys always have wind in your sails. And may the sun always shine, as a reminder of the promise you’ve made to each other. And as a wedding present, I will make sure the Bokke win the World Cup ! May the force be with you both my fellow Jedi !

Ons Hond

Shar Peis are really amazing animals. Very intelligent, observant, and tough. We had ours spayed about 2 weeks back, which was lots of fun. Then she had an abcess, which needed to be drained. Sharps have a problem, with thier eyelashes, they tend to grow inwards. So we had this done as well. She’s had to wear one of those elizabethan collars, and has walked into the wall so many time, I had to put the wife on calmettes. Evereytime I put her harness on, she just about freaks out. Tomorrow we have to take her back to the vet, for a minor correction on one of her eyes. There has been the most amazing contest of wills these last few weeks between my wife and the evil.

Ugly and Stupid Betty

As I sit here and type (and try not to freeze to death), a show called Ugly Betty is on Tv. I can’t decide if it’s a comedy, a drama, or just plain rubbish. Some ugly girl with braces on, runs around corporate america, trying to fit in. Hasn’t this been done to death already ? I’m a big Salma Hayek fan, but of late, I prefer her with the sound off, that way, I can make up my own plot.
