BOKSBURG WARD 32 WARD COMMITTEE ELECTION DISRUPTED BY ANC

The above video taken by Nigel Wiltshire ends with him being struck by the ANC member in red. I have needed a few days to allow red hot emotions to subside before writing about the aborted ward committee elections which were meant to take place last Saturday.  Instead of elections proceeding in the expected democratic manner, ANC members reduced the ...

Date night at Masala Indian Restaurant in Boksburg

The date night concept is nothing more than a cutesie idea to us.  With potential babysitters far afield we simply stay home or go out with the children.  When a rare opportunity for couple time arose we grabbed it with both hands. In the mood for Indian food our first choice was Classic India, however the most ghastly loud music ... Read More »

The big Boksburg Roadhouse Roundup

Sampling the top 3 roadhouses in Boksburg, was a good dose of fun and adventure. Retro is in, but in Boksburg (not a fashion capital of the world) for many it never went out. Not when it comes to roadhouses anyway. Boksburgians have a point here.  The Fireplace, Kota Joe and Orama were all better than, or equal to take ... Read More »

Kota Joe Roadhouse – a fresh take on an established concept

Kota Joe Roadhouse, is a fresh fun take on the roadhouse concept.  A vehicle to take roadhouses into the future.  After running a “best roadhouse” poll on a local community Facebook group, The Fireplace was most popular (51 votes), and Kota Joe second (13 votes).  In fairness The Fireplace has been around for almost 60 years and some may not ...

Nostalgia and Good food meet at The Fireplace Roadhouse in Boksburg

If nostalgia were a musical instrument it would be an oboe.  Conveying weighty, beautiful music tinged with sadness.  Certain places and memories bring a smile pared with an ache somewhere near my solar plexus.  I have oboe memories of The Gremlin Drive in roadhouse, when visiting my grandparents in Salisbury as a child.  My mother remembers going there with school ...

Kathleen Webb’s School of Dance – Ballet lessons in Boksburg

My little girl Acacia loves music and loves to dance.  Before turning 4 she repeatedly told us that she want’s to be a ballet girl.  Abbey from Top Tots gave me the contact details for Kathleen Webb’s School of Dance, her little girl has attended ballet lessons with Kathleen for some time. When I was a little girl (way back ... Read More »

Sounds Limited, car audio – Excellent service

I have had no car radio for over a year, it has been beyond annoying.  The car felt so empty in the hollow silence.  About 6 months ago Cliff bought a car radio from Autostyle in Mayfair, Johannesburg; they do not do installations and directed him to an installer two blocks away also on Church Street.  The person trying to ...

DA Branch East 32, More action than talk

Politics can be a real drag, so much talk so little walk.  Politicians hide underground, not making a peep until election time, then they are all over us like a rash.  This puts many off playing an active part, we’ve all heard so many promises and seen so very few results.  Why bother?  I’ll tell you why bother, because if ...

Golden Rod Nursery in Pomona Gauteng

Sometimes it takes me an awful long time to discover places.  In my 14 years in Joburg I had often heard of Uncle Tim’s Cabin in Benoni, it was only a few weeks ago that we visited there for the first time.  Yesterday we planned to visit a nursery and I suggested that we try to find one which we ...
