Changes at Morning Glen Mall
The revamp of
Morning Glen Mall
is now in full swing. The upper level east section where Spur,
Pizza and Burger Perfect, and Manor Pharmacy were, has been gutted. It
looks like we will be getting a Food Lovers' Market here, which should give Pick
'n Pay 'n Pay 'n Pay a run for your money.
Spur and Burger Perfect closed. Manor Pharmacy, you will recall, moved to
and has been replaced by a pharmacy in the Clicks downstairs. Pizza Perfect has
reincarnated as The Pizza Bar in Sunninghill Village,
as mentioned below.
Vilai-Lai Thai Massage has moved to opposite Capitec Bank, while 4give Nail and
Beauty Clinic has moved to the middle of the upper level. Capmor
Stationers is unmoved, just somewhat hidden behind a hoarding, as is Natural
Effects Hair Design.
Most of the toilets have been revamped. The long out-of-order central lift
has been removed entirely, leaving only one lift (opposite Pappadums Indian
We await further changes with interest.

**** Shawnee Spur Steak Ranch,
Chilli on Top Shopping Centre, Sunninghill
Our waitress was Precious and she was very good. One disappointment was the lack of Rump steak for the Seniors' menu - listed but not available. I had a pepper burger instead with spinach and my partner had ribs.
To drink he tried Castle Free (it isn't
really free!) whilst I had D'Aria Sauvignon Blanc. I received my birthday discount. The view across the valley is one really good reason for going to this restaurant!

**** Ri'stretto Al Fresco Cucina,
Ri'vonia Road, Morningside
A return after a long break! This is a very child friendly restaurant and it was alive with little ones! Drink choices were Brampton Sauvignon Blanc and Castle Free
(still not gratis!). To eat, I chose the spicy chicken livers and my partner a California pizza. The chicken livers proved so spicy that I took half home for later! We now are carrying a box for my leftovers! Prince gave great service.

A chap recently died,
having spent most of his disposable income on Lego blocks. He didn't leave his
children much money, but they got a great Legocy.

The People have spoken (those who bothered to register and vote, anyway).
A majority of those voted the ANC back into power.
We may conclude that most are quite happy with sewage flowing
in the streets and the rivers, while the plundering of state coffers for
personal gain continues unabated. "Cadre deployment", now known as "state
capture" has been party policy since the beginning, and this leopard
does not change its spots.
Expect the people who voted the same old ANC back in, to be out on the
streets soon protesting about the same old lack of service delivery. One
of the definitions of madness is doing the same thing and expecting a different
In last night's Cabinet announcement, President Ramaphosa dropped some of
the worst of Zuma's enablers, and trimmed the number of ministries somewhat,
leaving "only" 57 ministers and deputies. By contrast, the USA, with over
six times our population, manages with a Cabinet of just 17 members.
