|The 2018 Splashy Fen Music Festival Was A Beautiful Success |
04 Apr 18
"As you reflect over the coming days, concentrate on engraving the memories of a special 4 days on a Southern Drakensberg farm called Splashy Fen. A festival where the exchange rate, politics, news, conflict & judgement are forgotten, but instead family, friends, happiness and consciousness are embraced. A festival that brought 7 000 South Africans from all walks of life together. Thank you Splashy Fen. You have fulfilled our souls & we hope we have managed to fulfil yours. Until 2019... STAY HUMAN. Stu & Fuzz"

|OMG Quiz Night at the Alexander Bar |
23 Nov 17
I'm not a fount of general knowledge. In fact, for a well-travelled lawyer, I'm usually quite embarrassed by my lack of it. I recall attending a quiz night or two when working in Rwanda which was full of smart over-achieving ex-pats. Our team won, but I was relieved to answer just one question all night. So it was with a vague sense of impending doom that I made my way to the Alexander Bar for its weekly OMG Quiz Night yesterday.
