Happy Women’s Day

Happy Women’s Day to all women across South Africa.

Sadly, much like other SA public holidays, the words (because they are just words) ring rather hollow.

Meghan Cremer’s family’s worst fears were confirmed on Thursday when police found the missing 30-year-old’s body in Cape Town.
“Our investigation and search operation led us to a sand mine on a Philippi farm this morning around 1am, where the body of the missing person was found,” said police spokesperson FC van Wyk.

Very depressing. Again.


Women’s Day here in SA today and thus a public holiday, but I find myself hard at work in the lab. TB shows no respect for human public holidays and insists on growing and requiring care and attention. The plan is to get through the tasks in hand and then join the rest of the family wherever they are for some fun in the sun, ahead of the epic storm forecast for the weekend.

Not to delay those precious dry family moments then, herewith the new one from the Killers. Another band that haven’t changed their style at all, which is great because it was just fine as it was. Runaways comes ahead of their new album next month and – hopefully – another tour including somewhere in SA with some parking.
