    Welcome to the US, Tinjana! I hope you settle in soon. Take it day by day and don't be afraid to ask for advice. YOu don't have to take it if it doesn't suit you, but it might give you a start. There is a South African group near you on Facebook. (Many people are willing to help you find your way around.) https://www.facebook.com/groups/279318005415416/

    Winter Hands

    I recently discovered coconut oil. I apply it after using lotion to seal in the moisturising properties of the lotion. It is also great on dry lips. Coconut oil is solid when cold and more liquid when warm so a little goes a long way.
  3. I wish you all the best on your return to SA. Your posts have always been interesting. I don't comment on posts so much anymore, but I pop in regularly to keep up with the chatter. I feel that I am in that no-man's land of having been here for quite a while, (16 years) but all the immigration processes have changes so much that my input is no longer valid. We were caught up in the 9/11 drama and had to wait a long time for PR, but citizenship is just around the corner. Good luck and as others have said - please do let us know how you get on and settle back into life in SA. Bev
  4. Fabulous and congratulations! Just by the way there is a great crowd of South Africans in that area. Reach out to them for help settling in and learning the ropes.
  5. Wishing you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2016!
  6. Fantastic! I am so glad that you have settled in well and started your new life. May you have continued success!

    Lest We Forget

    Mmmmm! Cold shivers Figjam! Mu grandfathers both fought in WW1 and WW2 and then I had husband, siblings, cousins and friends all in the border war. I watched the trains leave with young boys and return with young men and said prayers as the planes and helicopters flew over our house taking them to unknown places. Fortunately all my loved ones came home. I thank them all.
  8. Look at some of the sales fliers for the shops. Walmart, Hroger, Target, Aldi, Best Buy, Sears, Rooms to Go, Ashley Furniture For apartment rental Rent.com apartment.com
  9. Hope all goes well with your move.

    World Cup Rugby

    Sorry that I only saw this after the game I saw this one on one of my FB pages. Just be careful when you close the popup ad windows. www.livestream.com
  12. I have had great success with this easy rusk recipe that my mother passed on to me. Granny's Rusks Rusks are delicious dipped in hot coffee, tea or Milo/chocolate. Granny got this recipe off the SR flour packet years ago and kept the biscuit tins (Yes! The Quality Street tins!) full to share with visitors. YOu can add raisins and other dried fruit or anise seed. 1Kg Self Raising Flour (2lb packet) 200ml Sugar (3/4 cup) 10ml Baking Powder (2tsp) 5ml Salt (1tsp) 250g Butter (1 stick) 500ml Buttermilk (1pt) 1 Egg 250ml Oil (1cup) Sieve all the dry ingredients together. Rub the butter into the flour mixture Beat the eggs, oil and buttermilk well Pour into the centre of the flour mixture Mix and knead thoroughly. YOu can add a bit more flour if the mixture seems too wet. Form into balls (slightly larger than a golf ball) and put into 9x13 pan plus a half loaf tin. Bake at 180C (350F) for 45 minutes. When cool enough to handle - pull apart - put onto cooling rack on top of cookie sheet. Dry in low oven (on lowest temp setting) for about 3 hours or until totally dry Store in an airtight tin. Dip into your favourite beverage and enjoy!
  13. They want your existing passport - and it's really scary to be without it. We did not wait very long when we last renewed about 8 years ago but I have seen and heard that the wait can be quite a while now.
