  1. Housing has become very expensive all over South Africa and has been raised on a national/parliamentary level. The price hike is greatly due to the strenght of foreign currency with its accompanying buyers. South African property prices are real cheap to Americans & Europeans looking for such investmens. Also, since bank lending rates ( prime rate = 11%) are at an all-time low, more people are buying than renting houses and in some areas there are a shortage of properties. In essence, the market is currently seller orientated. Cheers

    Is that from the hip up? :whome:
  3. Teacher, what are those repercussions? Which are positive and which are negative? Which one do you prefer? Poppelooi
  4. Yes... Hallo or Hello Teacher and welcome to SAUSA I would love to hear a teacher's viewpoint of the American schooling system. Poppelooi
  5. Skattie, no, it did not help much. See, I'm still in SA and for comparison's sake, it helps to know the $/pound price. Thank U for replying though, but now go get those prices... OK? :holy: :whome:
  6. Skattie? What do those shanks cost you per pound? Is it lamb, or is it mutton? Lamb is supposedly more tender ... mutton more tasty ... lamb more expensive.
  7. Nelson Mandela is sitting at home watching TV and drinking a beer when he hears a knock at the door. When he opens it, he is confronted by a little Chinese man, clutching a clip board and yelling, You Sign! You sign!' Behind him is an enormous truck full of car exhausts. Nelson is standing there in complete amazement, when the Chinese man starts to yell louder. 'You Sign! You sign!' Nelson says to him, 'Look, you've obviously got the wrong man', and shuts the door in his face. The next day he hears a knock at the door again. When he opens it, the little Chinese man is back with a huge truck of brake pads. He thrusts his clipboard under Nelson's nose, yelling, 'You sign! You sign!' Mr Mandela is getting a bit hacked off by now, so he pushes the little Chinese man back, shouting: 'Look, go away! You've got the wrong man! I don't want them!' Then he slams the door in his face again. The following day, Nelson is resting, and late in the afternoon, he hears a knock on the door again. On opening the door, there is the same little Chinese man thrusting a clipboard under his nose, shouting, 'You sign! You sign!' Behind him are TWO very large trucks full of car parts. This time Nelson loses his temper completely, he picks up the little man by his shirt front and yells at him: 'Look, I don't want these! Do you understand? You must have the wrong name! Who do you want to give these to?' The little Chinese man looks very puzzled, consults his clipboard, and says: (It's a beauty) (wait for it) Get your best Chinese accent ready ..... 'You not Nissan Main Dealer?
  8. As is my style, I waited untill 2 days before the closing date. Got my application accepted after about 18 hours of repeated server failures. Could not get my wife entered. I think things from the South African side was too slow or a lot of people were trying to enter untill the last moment. Will be an early bird this year though
  9. Yes Cazz, we do have the most beautiful children, of which mine is more beautiful than most. :whome: . But really, you can only love them hey.
  10. So, Tokolosi... are SAners just lazy at lovemaking, or does it have something to do with the trip over to the USA? Does emmigrating to the USA leave South Africans temporarily infertile? 04 to 06 years to produce an American? Are they that hard to make? :whome: :holy:
  11. Da' bo innie Bosveld stap hasie eendag so deurie gras en kom oppe borrel mampoer af wat innie son gelê het. Hy vat 'n paar slukke, ma' ie witblits skop hom so lat hy net daar uitpaas. Jakkals kom verby , sien vir hasie ennie bottel , dog toe hy sal ook so sluk vat voor hy vir hasie eet. Maar die warm mampoer kap hom ook om. So lê die twee nou daar toe hiëna verby kom, hy kon sy geluk nie glo nie en drink ook an ie bottel; selle storie, val net daar neer, uit-gepaas. Leeu kom toe op ie storie af, besluit hy eet nie aan jakkalse en hiëna's nie, en daarby is die haas te klein om eers oor te worrie. Hy vat toe maar 'n paar groot slukke en kort-voor-lank slaan hy ok neer. Met die begin hasie roer, sit regop met 'n hewige hoofpyn. Hy skud sy kop, trek sy ore reg en kyk toe so om hom. Toe sien hy hoe lê leeu, jakkals en hiëna uitgepaas om hom. Hy mompel: "Hel, smaak my mos ek raak aggresief as ek gesuip is!"
