JONKERSBERG DONASIE

Deyur Annamarie Dellimijn 'n Geliefde Besigheids eienaar van Grootbrakrivier het daarvan tehore gekom dat Jonkersberg Kleuterskool 'n yskas benodig. In die gees van Mandela Dag het Zandra von Vollenstein besluit om nie slegs 'n yskas geskenk nie, maar 'n bakkievrag vol meubels en speelgoed! Right to left seen here are Ward 5 Councillor Anton Dellimijn with teachers from the Jonkersberg nursery school Mrs' Maria Manewil and Maureen Gertse having received the donation by Zandra von Vollenstein Die blydskap en verbasing van die personeel en opgewonde kinder stemmetjies was wonderlik om te beleef. "Nou kan ons ons huis meubels terugvat huistoe en die kos hoef nie meer elke dag van ons huise af skooltoe en terug gekarwy word nie", het die Juffrouens dankbaar opgemerk.

DID YOU KNOW?

The Crimean war medal. The GBR Museum has a good collection of war and other medals including military accoutrements. One unusual medal is the Crimean Medal which was a silver campaign medal approved in 1854, for issue to officers and men of British units (land and naval) which fought against Russia in the Crimean War of 1854–56. The Crimean war ended 160 years ago. How did it come to end up in our museum? The medal consists of a 32 millimetres, pale blue ribbon with yellow edges (only recently acquired) and a 36mm silver disk. It is notable for its unusually ornate clasps. Each clasp is in the form of an oak leaf with an acorn at each end, a style not used on any other British medal. The ornate, floriated, swivelling suspender is also unique to the Crimea Medal. In Britain, the Crimean War is principally remembered for three reasons: the “Charge of the Light Brigade”, maladministration in the British army, and “Florence Nightingale”. Come to the museum and learn its fascinating history.

MossKos kook dat die sop so

spat!

The MossKos Girls cooked up a storm on 29 July at the new wedding venue between Mossel Bay and George called “Trinity Gate”, to raise funds for the ACVV- Ons Huis Care Centre in Mossel Bay. For the “Christmas in July” function two hundred guests were treated to a delicious 4 -course meal that kept heads spinning. The show stopper was the Magical Melting Chocolate Dome with Raspberry Coulis decorated with Coral Tuile, Crispy Crêpe Crumbs and a Strawberry Raindrop.(see insert) Die MossKossers het 12 lede, waarvan sommige opgeleide sjefs, spyseniers asook koskenners is en ander net ‘n passie vir kook het.  Baie dankie aan al die borge, in besonder Trinity Gate, Gondwana Natuurreservaat en Fancy Functions, wat hierdie spog geleentheid moontlik gemaak het.

KRUIE KLETSIE

Deur Cecil Hough Marjolein (Origanum majorana) is `n handige meerjarige kruidsoort met `n soet, delikate geur.   Die blaartjies is grysgroen, sag en klein, amper rond.   Dit groei mooi in ligte, goed gedreineerde grond in effense skadu sowel as vol son en moet gereeld water kry!   Wortelverdeling moet in die lente geskied.   Dit kan ook voortplant d.m.v. saad., maar ontkiem egter redelik stadig.    Saailinge moet ten minste 9cm hoog wees voordat dit uitgeplant word – sowat 30cm uitmekaar gespasieer.   Dit kan tot `n hoogte van ongeveer 45cm groei.   Marjolein droog goed, sonder verlies aan heilsaamheid, maar die vars geur gaan in `n mate verlore.   Blare word net voor blomtyd ge-oes. Kruiegroete, Cecile.
