  • The Iconic South African "Braai Broodjies"

    Ag, my dankie, dankie dat u 'n herinnering terugbring aan my grootwordjare in Suid-Afrika. Ons sal dit hê wanneer ons gaan kampeer, en ook as ek in die leër in Walvisbaai in die destydse Suidwes-Afrika was. Baie keer is hulle tot perfeksie verbrand !!Oh, my goodness, thank you for bringing back a memory of when I was growing up in South Africa. We would have these whenever we went camping and also when I was in the army stationed in Walvis Bay in (then) South West Africa. A lot of times they were burnt to perfection!!

    Bucket Bass

    I grew up in South Africa and in the 60's as a kid I remember "bands" consisting of young African kids going around the streets playing music, mostly jazz, on home made instruments. Their bass was a tea chest with broom stick and string, the guitar was a 1 gallon (5 litre) oil tin with a guitar neck, the banjo was a cigar box with neck and drums were a 44 gallon drum, cut down, with a zebra skin over it. The sound from these instruments was up there with the professionals, BTW wind instruments: penny whistle and flute made out of bamboo, trumpets were mostly the real thing.Thanks for bringing back the memories.

  • Guys, I've figure it out. If you take a look at the the pictures at the top of this post you will notice the lower left and right pictures. At the bottom of his mirror is the TOUCH PAD. That is how Seral navigates his screen. He is probably pointing to a particular icon just for effect, BUT he would be using the touch pad to move around.I have an old HP TX1000 laptop that has a touch screen and will it and this project to create something similar.Hope this helps the TOUCH PAD queries.
