  1. Does anybody from Austin or San Antonio have any plans to buy some of the Boerewors and would be willing to share? I would love some but as there are only 2 of us, the 70 lbs would keep me eating boerewors for the next 5 years. Please let me know. Thanks, Ria
  2. Janneman, Ek het toe die Samosa probeer maar die kors was net nie dieselfde nie. Ek sien ons wag vir 'n ander resep. Sodra dit hier verskyn en ek kans kry sal ek die dan probeer. Ria
  3. Slaptjips, If you are still looking for a host family, please send me the information at skattie28[at]yahoo.com Ria
  4. Janneman, Dankie vir die skakel na die video. Ek dink ek gaan hierdie naweek probeer om 'n samosa te maak en dink ek sal die springroll deeg gebruik. Sal jou laat weet hoe dit uit draai. Ria
  5. I would just about kill for a real Durban Samoosa. Does anybody have a recipe? Also, there is a tuis nywerheid in Durban North that sells the best beskuit that I have ever eaten. It definitly contains butter, lots of it, bran, sunflowerseeds and raisens. My sister will at times send me some but the cost of the beskuit and the post is high. There is also of course the possibility of it not making it out of the country.... Anybody from Durbs who may have that recipe? Ria

    JennyG: Introduction

    Hi JennyG, I moved here many years ago and had a diploma in nursing. As they had a different education system, I missed the OB (Midwifery) and psyc component. Ja ek is 'n bietjie ouer en toe ek begin het, het min verpleegsters universiteit to gegaan. As jy regtig wil kom, moet jy besluit waar jy wil bly en dan aansoek doen by daardie staat se verpleegster raad. daar is 'n hele paar state wat nou mekaar se lisensies aanvaar (hulle word "compact states" genoem) wat 'n mens se lewe makliker maak. Die goeie nuus is dat daar 'n tekort van verpleegsters is en as jy in 'n area werk waar daar 'n groot tekort is, sal jy moontlik maklik werk kry na jy al die aansoek forms ingevul het ens. daar is ook agentskappe wat verpleegsters na lande toe invoer. Laat my weet as ek kan help. Ria

    Hello

    Hello to everybody. I discovered this site by accident this past weekend, while looking for shops that sell South African goods. I was hoping to find a shop close by but no such luck. My name is Ria Grobler and I live in New Braunfels Tx. My daughter, 3 dogs and 9 cats (5 were newborn kittens and yes the mom snuck out before I could get her spade), and I moved here a year ago from North Carolina and were punished for that with the hottest summer in this area for 100 years! I have lived in the USA permanently since 1985 although I originally immigrated here in 1976 with my then husband. After 5 years I went home for 5 yrs and then returned and the rest is history. I grew up in Pinetown, Natal and went to nursing school at Entabeni Hospital in Durban.When I returned to the RSA in 1980, I settled in Jo'burg and worked at the new JHB Gen where I did midwifery and then specialized in Pediatrics. Upon my return I still lacked the psych component needed to write state boards and worked as a nursing assistant and as a nanny until I was able to land in the right place at the right time and met the right people. Terwyl ek 'n boere dogter is, het ek nou al so gewoond geraak om net Engles te praat en te skryf dat ek partykeer 'n bietjie sukkel. Ek het een broer in Kanada maar die res van my familie is nog almal in RSA. Ek praat darem elke twede week met my ma so ek het darem nie my taal heeltemal verloor nie. While reading many of the posts and seeing the frustration with the immigration process and/or the ability to immigrate, I was very grateful that I am a nurse. While I am no expert in the field of immigration, I believe that it is one profession that opens many doors to many different countries. I look forward to chatting to many new friends on this site. Ria
