A South African in America – the Questions & Answers

I have now lived in America going on 8 years and I have to say a few of the questions I’ve been asked have put England to shame… some of them have been outrageous to the point that … well I really couldn’t help having some fun.  I’ve also had a few instances where my english is grossly misinterpreted and caused a bit of embarrassing … Continue reading A South African in America – the Questions & Answers

A Day out at Suncoast Primate Sanctuary

As part of my quest to see sanctuaries in Florida and around the world I managed to visit the Suncoast Primate Sanctuary in Palm Harbor, Florida. Now I must be upfront with you, I watched the news back in 2008 while in South Africa and they had a whole segment on this place and what they do for the primates no longer being able to … Continue reading A Day out at Suncoast Primate Sanctuary

6 days in San Francisco and Napa – A glimpse in to the life of a Wineblogger

In August I was invited by Napa Food and Vine to spend a week with them.  We’ve known each other for over decade (I’m dating myself here) and worked together previously on different projects.

Sharing Hurricane Irma

It’s surreal going through something you’ve so often seen on the news, I’ve lived in Florida now going on 8 years and we often have the watches for the hurricanes but they’ve always swung away. Not this time, no matter how much we spoke to the Weather Gods, prayed or told the weather man on the tv that he has it wrong and to go … Continue reading Sharing Hurricane Irma
