"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

Just a bit of fun...

Take a visit to this site and see what the effects of a 2 - 60.0 mtr sea level rise would mean for you.

At 20.0 mtrs Table Mountain and most of the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town would become an island.


At the maximum of a 60.0 mtr rise the only place we'd be O.K. would be on the farm.


Makes you think, doesn't it...?!

Not even the highest rise option would get close to touching us here, but a lot of my old stomping grounds would be under water. Of course that would probably mean that a lot of the people that were effected might show up down here so I guess it would probably effect us some.

Interesting. Our house in Strand would cope with only a 9m rise, But Gordon's Bay would get to almost 30m. Time to move back??

Well, we can kiss our Texas Gulf Coast property goodbye at around 6 meters!
Thanks for sharing Dani!
