Have A Prosperous 2009!

Being the last day of 2008 'n all, I thought I would give myself a day off from posting. Besides, I'm sure you will all be celebrating the arrival of the New Year with your families rather than browsing our humble blog. Right? I know I will.

Would you believe that 1 January 2009 marks eight months that our little blog has been around? Where did the time go?

It has been a kak year for South Africa so there was no shortage of content to post. From the power outages, the xenophobic violence, crime and corruption which still remains rampant, reverse racism becoming more entrenched etc I suppose the (two) silver linings to come out of this year (if one can call it silver linings as the jury is still out whether what follows is better) was the booting out of Mbeki and his bunch of rubbish "collectives" from office - and the resultant split of the ANC.

2009 is going to be a tumultuous year, with the elections, with Zuma becoming el presidente, with the recession, lots of uncertainty await us.

We'll be here to add our two cents' worth as long as you guys keep visiting. It's been commented on here that people are able to gauge a clearer picture of events in South Africa from reading our blog than through perusing online news outlets. I think that's because we don't hold back and we include more varied opinions from as many people as possible, of all persuasions. Hearing the same old same old from the usual media outlets will never give you a proper perspective of what is transpiring in the country.

So dear readers, from myself and the other bloggers, enjoy your New Year's eve, have a good couple of toots in celebration, don't drink and drive children ;o)~, stay safe, have a prosperous 2009 and we'll see you tomorrow.
