The Great Braai4Heritage tour of South Africa

40 Days, 40 Heritage Sites, 40 Braais. Starting on 13 March 2011 in Cape Town we will drive around the country and spread the Braai4Heritage message as we go.

    Spare the local wood and burn some invaders first. Black Wattle is a prime candidate.

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year
    and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about Is there a
    way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
    regards Propolis
