So we all survived the "End of the World" according to some conspiracy nutters (although the Mayans never predicted it, they simply discontinued their calender, but that is another story...) and the madness of Christmas shopping, guests and family we don't really smaak.
Nevertheless, it is a beautiful day in Cape Town with a slight breeze on the sunny side of False Bay. Just returned from the beach, with the sand of Milk Bay still clinging to my feet and plakkies. My Braai has been lit and the pearls are dripping off my Bacardi Cuba Libre.
Just wanted to wish all my friends, readers and supporters a happy and prosperous New Year. Thanks for all your support without which this blog would not exist. Whatever we didn't do in 2012, we will do in 2013.
And as I always promise those idiots in the SA government, come hell or high water you can bank on it that in the New Year, I will give you even MORE hell, until you start governing properly at least. So be prepared for a Mike Smith Shit Storm Tsunami when I return in the New Year.
And to all of you who are going to go and watch the cacophony of the Cape
Und an meine deutschen Freunde und Kumpels...Ich wuenche ihnen einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr. Prosit Neujahr!
