"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

Please - wont you help us save Bantamsklip?

I received an e-mail from Sprig this morning.  For more information, please click on the link in Sprig's name.

It is all to do with a nuclear power station that the government wants to erect roughly 100-odd kilometers from our farm.  This one is only 100 kms - but they have others in the pipeline all along the coastline of South Africa.  If we can be vociferous enough, maybe, just maybe, we can change their course of action, and steer them in the proper direction.  It can't hurt to make the effort and try.  Can it?

Join us, wherever you are in the world, and let your voice be heard.

Please, please please.  Think of your little ones and their future little ones, think of your extended families, think of all the inhabitants (all God's creatures great and small - us included) of this world, and go to this site, and sign the petition. 

We don't need any more nuclear power stations on this planet.  Seriously, we don't!  What we need is for all governments to adopt renewable energy methods.  To install wave, wind and solar farms.  To use the moon, sun and the wind which is given freely by Mother Nature and which will not adversely affect our incredible planet.

To follow the example of Japan, and to actively start decommissioning (HA!) existing nuclear power stations - not build ruddy new ones!

Consider this.

What on earth could Japan know that we don't?

Sign the petition.  Please?!


  1. I'll sign, the very last thing we need is more of these plants. They truly will be the downfall of this planet.

  2. Mr H - Thank you. Really appreciate your taking the time :)

    Thank you.

  3. Just look at the horrors of Japan (and it's STILL going on) and you'll see why we don't need ANY of these things in the world. Just signed the petition and having all my coworkers do it too...

  4. 1st Man - Thank you - and thank you to your co-workers too :)

  5. Signed. Koeberg still makes me nervous, so close to all the squatter shacks.

  6. Done! I find it amazing that anyone would think nuclear was a good idea for power!

  7. Signed and thanks for posting this Dani.

  8. Elephant's Eye - Thank you. Agreed, neighbourhoods and nuclear power stations don't mix! And we all remember the spanner that was dropped not too long ago...!

    Linda - Thank you. Exactly - and especially as we now have such brilliant alternatives!

    Garden Girl - Thank you and you're welcome.


Thank you for taking the time to comment - it makes my day and removes the "loneliness' of sitting at my screen blogging supposedly to myself ;) I try and reply as quickly as possible so please forgive me if sometimes my response is delayed.
