    And all they needed to do was give the people nicotine and they'd gladly sit at home.

    We are in for a catastrophe and there's nothing we can do stop it. How's the backlog by you @Adephi ?

    We had a bit of a backlog this week after the taxi strike. Had one of the 3 machines also out of order but that got sorted fairly quick. But managed to catch everything up over the weekend. We are also busy expanding to handle more samples. So all is looking good on the testing front.

    Gauteng's numbers are scary at the moment, more active cases than WC. Time for me to put on a new set of filters.

    When you are too tired and frustrated to cook , run to KOTA JOE's in Edenvale get Zoo biscuit milkshake and a Blondie burger and life is good again ;)
    and a waffle on a stick for dessert.

    On Friday (26 June), the minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma published a new directive outlining the country’s ‘advanced’ level 3 lockdown regulations.
    Cooperative governance and she makes the rules. Come now Mr in charge grow some klokkies!

    I still don't believe those KZN numbers!

    We published directives today pretty much saying the office will remain closed until end of July at least. The missus has had the same instruction issued. At least we get to spend most of winter in the house without driving in the cold at 6:30am.

    Seems one team at work feels they will be more productive if they are let back into the office though, not sure how that will pan out but I think it's a bad idea.

    Is that the only choice down there? I knew salaries were low in CT, but that’s ridiculous...

    So citizens are starting to rebel. Soon unemployment will reach 50%. Thousands will die of hunger, even more will die at the hands of the hungry. OOh yes and a few will die of Covid.
    What did this lockdown help? Van die wal af in die sloot
    As I said from the start. A 3-5 week lockdown should have only started now, actually only when we reach like half a mil infections.

    Back in 1981 I spent 2 years in Bloemfontein and various parts in the far north of the country. (SADF)
    Turns out a lot of my Afrikaans brothers went around barefoot. So some soutie came up with the joke that everyone north of the Du Toits Kloof mountains lived barefoot.
    Guess it was a subtle dig at the less sophisticated, most of the English dudes came from Cape Town and it was a bit of a culture shock seeing how the north lived.
