"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully." John Seymour ~ Self Sufficiency 2003

Moonlight starbright

As I was closing the curtains on Saturday night I saw this just peeping above the tree tops...

Apparently, it is Venus and the crescent Moon and they are shining through the twilight in beautiful conjunction, less than 10° apart (http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php/266671-Go-out-and-look-at-the-moon-right-now!)

A crystal clear night sky - with a view forever.  I hope I never take that for granted.


  1. Hi Dani, I'm dilly about amateur astronomy and am inspired by your (and your son's) photos of the moon. One day soon I look forward to letting my telescope loose on the clear skies of Rietkuil. Regards, Rogan.

    1. Rogan - It will blow you away :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment - it makes my day.
