Gotta disagree with you there.  We are in the country, and we find the women here much better looking and dressed, than when we were in Northshore 7 years ago.  It is the younger girls with their bottle white hair, black roots, and black make-up that I can't stand.

and will learn south african history up to pre-94.

Why only until then ?  That is like just learning about Germany before the war !!!   They need to know everything .

i'll rephrase: they'll learn the 'unchanged or untampered with' history

Aah, thanks for rephrasing.  I completely agree with you.  It has to be the unadalterated, unabridged version.  Can't stand this tampering with history.  Tell both sides, but please tell it like it is . 

My husband has a book that was written and published about Die Groot Trek concerning his great great great great grandmother.  I have kept it very safe.   They were Havemanns, were on the trek going to meet up with one of the famous leaders, they lost a cow, told everyone else to go on ahead, that they would catch up.  Later that night, heard shots, shouts, etc and thought that they had met up with Piet Retief and were celebrating.  They arrived to find that everyone in the lager had been slaughtered, except for a small black girl, a servant, who was hidden under a mattress.

Good to know that you think of yourself in the thrid person Schalk. :2funny: :angel: SAKB, the slippers and pj's aren't reserved for the"plattelandse" girls, seen many in the same wonderful get up. waltzing around in Porirua and Petone. Petone is meant to be the Melville sort of equal?????? have to admit, the local gals is not thet prutty, ek is baie gelukkig met my stunning boere meisie van Potch af. Always been of the opinion that SA grils were by far, the best looking of all those I have seen, in the travels I have made. Pretoria girls were the pick of the bunch, yet they somehow seemed to disappear between 6 pm and 7 am (never found the solution to that - hhhmmm, what a pity). Think NZ now has potential for improvement, they are allowing more foreigners in, so cross cultural breeding might create some dem guud looking people, with really good outlooks on life??? They certainly can't go wrong with a large dose of Saffer blood in them? :angel: :angel: :angel: >:D

They do.  What worries me is the reputation of the kiwi girls.  I read an article in the newspaper a few weeks back which stated that Kiwi girls were the "loosest " in the world, and would end up sleeping with a load of guys before settling down.  And that the guys expect it.  Waaaa !!!  I have two girls and am going to have to really go the extra mile to teach them good morals and be like their mama was .  Hubby says his club  just got bigger !!!   :2funny:

Not sure our men are all that safe .....  :2funny:  :2funny:

A while ago I heard on the radio that the average kiwi chick will have + - 40 "partners" in her life time.... eish..... where we're we in our younger days...  :2funny:  :2funny:  :2funny:
Enjoy, SAKB.

Well I heard about a family who could not emigrate to Aus because their teenage daughter's (15) HIV test came back positive in the medicals.

Finally the story came out that she used to hang out with friends at Tygerberg mall (not bad area) at night and that they will play spin the bottle and the girls had to go to the restrooms and have sex with whichever boy the bottle stopped on.

Yes, some of the SA schools are full of all the wrong guidance.  My son is 15 and he tells me most of the kids smoke in the toilets.  Now if I had done that at high school in my day (not THAT long ago....) I would have been expelled.
