Amazing food, prepared by a friend whose a Chef! salmon, carpaccio, etc and lay about in the winter sun till it went over Table Mountain. Kirstenbosch is such a beautiful place, we dont utilize it enough. Took some great pics.

Joshua Grierson

Joshua Grierson is the bees knees. A wild old soul from a time before. He’s a master singer/ songwriter and balladeer. He could easily share the stage with the greats, Crosby Stills Nash and Young. David Grey should open for him. He opens your heart and commands your attention and before you know it you’re encaptured. He reels you in spinning tales of magick and revolution. He makes you believe. He echoes sounds of love, loss rock and roll, great open plains, and the South. Joshua Grierson is too young to be this good. You better believe it. this my album of the year. You can listen to him here.

It's the coldest day of the year so far, 8 degrees, and Spain won the World Cup! I can't believe it's over. i hope our visitors had a good time and that the spin off will be amazing for our country. We deserve it.

This weekend i: spent some time in Hout Bay, watching the rain and eating good food and babysitting 4 jack russels, 1 baby beagle and 1 'African Special' - 6 dogs is definately too many.

LAst weekend i did the fan walk and took a day to recover.

Tonight: i am playing at the Barleycorn, and at Alma Cafe on Wednesday.
