What a beautiful day, a day where you can truly say it’s great to be alive. When I walked down to the Sandpan this morning early, the trees and the reeds were as still as any lyrical expression you could think of. Not the slightest stirring. Only the slight ripples from fish nibbles close to […]

Good evening all of you. Before I get going with today’s results, I would just like to enquire whether all of you receive my emails.
