Nationally, I'm Suth Effrican (like Sprocky ).
Internationally, I'm alien - definitely from another planet, doing research on human behaviour on earth! All I know is that, if the universe relied on me as the role-model of humans on earth, they would have a very skewed view.

In the late 70's I lived for one year in North Dakota, with the wind chill factor it was between -45 and -58c for an entire month. When the wind died down and the sun came back out people were wearing shorts and t-shirts and it was still less than 0c. Crazy people!

DuikerHiker ... great lineage there! Have you visited the Campanile where the 1820 Settler's landed in Port Elizabeth, and the old graveyard with some of their names on crumbling stones near-by?
