Based on the bushes I'm going to say Seaview.

@bwana is my PE memory still good? I havent lived there in 13 years.
Yep, that's the one!

Damn, should've known that. My SO works relatively close to it and communicates with the pharmacist next door almost daily.

Nothing in my area of Durban. Apparently they're all over Umlazi and KwaMashu though, AKA the townships.

I guess I was wrong about my neighbourhood. Not even a dog has barked today.

How long until people get bored?

That is stupidity of the 1st order! There are many pensioners who can only afford the bakery breads!
How long can this silly nonsense carry on for!

#covid19SA President Cyril Ramaphosa in a letter to the speaker of the national assembly says they have "employed" 2820 members of the #SANDF across all 9 provinces from 26 March - 26 June. This will cost R641 200 290 #lockdownSA (@tshidi_lee)


so i have it correctly they are enforcing it with 313 soldiers per province at R75k per month per soldier - correct?
GP, WC and KZN probably with get a large allocation. It includes fuel, food and other logistical arrangements I think.

People are bored already, especially those to whom work is a refuge for avoiding their homes. I work with guys who would do anything to avoid staying at home, work on weekends and avoid taking leave until they are forced to, fortunately for them we are also working during shutdown, they were just not going to cope.

I went to the shops to do groceries. The past week was a nightmare so we delayed the torture. Woolies has a shorter queue but they don't sell most essentials. Checkers, Spar :)sick:) and PnP have insanely long queues but it's all orderly with decent spacing. People look at each other with suspicion.

I turned around and went home with the shopping list.

Went to the local spar at 8am hoping to avoid crowds. Was surprisingly busy and the shelves starting to look bare. Stocked up for a week and back into my hole
