On a trip to the Cape and West Coast in March, I managed to locate and catch up with two classmates, Andy MacGregor and Ant Hay-Buchanan. Andy lives in Cape Town and Ant is up the West Coast in Saldanha. Both left a lasting impression on me with their intellect and passion for what they are doing. Andy is an engineer and has automated his home and appliances and can quote energy output and consumption

Andy is still actively consulting and talks passionately about further automation plans for the home as well as future collaboration plans with Ant on diamond exploration and location using satellite technology!

Ant loves life in Saldanha where he lectures at the local diving academy. We met with Ant at the academy where he showed us around the lecture rooms and the equipment rooms where they have several decompression chambers, diving helmets of various types, as well as compressors. Also went to the docks nearby where they have the boats tied up. All very interesting indeed. 
Ant also shared plans for a spell in Oman where the local police force have requested diving instruction and international certification which is what their dive school offers.
Sue and I really enjoyed catching up with Ant and Andy - both of whose lives are so interesting and far away from our comparatively humdrum daily life!

Meeting with Stuee Campbell in London

On a recent visit to London Felicity and I were delighted to be hosted by Stuee Campbell at one of his favourite restaurants in Belgravia - Oliveto. What a marvelous host he was! Not only was the meal superb - but Stuee shared much about what he has done since leaving DHS. A remarkable story - which I encouraged Stuee to have published one day. He then generously took us on a late night tour of the area - showing us the homes of the rich and famous (Mozart, Mary Shelley, Noel Coward, Margaret Thatcher, Lord Lucan, Matthew Arnold and others). What a wonderful evening it was! Pic 1: Felicity, Stuee and I at Olivetos; Pic 2: Stuee and Felicity outside Noel Coward's previous home; Pic 3: Felicity and I outside Mozart's previous home.

Nigel Hollis kindly hosted us for a superb lunch at the Durban Club earlier today. Pic 1: Mike Mun-Gavin; Denzil Andrews; Nigel Hollis; Graham Morrison and Mike Bolstridge (somewhat obliterated by his shiny halo!). Pic 2: Geoff Caruth; Stan Coffey and Graham Raubenheimer - all catching up in the pub before lunch. Pic 3: (around the table from left): Mike Bolstridge (his halo had slipped by now); Cedric Parker; Mike Mun-Gavin; Graham Morrison; Nigel Hollis; Geoff Caruth; Stan Coffey and Graham Raubenheimer - enjoying the Club's excellent fare. Sadly Geoff Caruth forgot to propose a toast to Her Majesty the Queen!


Christmas Braai in Mt Edgecombe

The organising committee were kindly hosted at a braai by Stan and Gail-Anne Coffey at their lovely home in Mount Edgecombe just before Christmas. Seen here from left to right (Pic 1): Nigel Hollis; Mike Buchanan; Graham Morrison; Mike Bolstridge and Stan Coffey observing the Master Braaier at work; (Pic 2): Janet & Geoff Caruth with Stan Coffey. (Pic 3): Linda Buchanan; Janet Caruth; Felicity Aldred-Parker; Judy Morrison; Gail-Anne Coffey and Suzanne Bolstridge - all looking gorgeous

What a wonderful afternoon we spent together! There was some dispute over who should get the last piece of Suzanne's delicious Melk Tert and Lemon Meringue Pie - and Geoff Caruth prevailed with his superior charm (damn it!) Sincere thanks to Stan and Gail-Anne
