The first Chas Everitt Agent of the Month for 2016 is Joan Ross.
Well done Joan and may you have an awesome year. The many communications we receive about your service driven attitude is clearly the reason you are going from strength to strength in Diep River and Upper Plumstead and your social engagement is a credit to Chas Everitt.
Shamrocks, gold a’ plenty,
and tons of Irish smiles.
Hope your St. Patrick’s Day
brings much togetherness
with friends and family all the while!
The Diep River blog and Chas Everitt wish you a Happy St Patrick’s Day. May the homes and houses in all of Diep River be filled the spirit of green this special day!

The massive fire raging in the southern peninsula mountains is set to burn for at least another two days – perhaps longer.
With the Cape Town Cycle Tour taking place on Sunday, the battle to contain the fire raged on on Tuesday, with helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft and ground teams fighting the blaze spread out over a vast area – fuelled by thick fynbos that has not been burnt since the huge fire of 2000.
The focus of the firefighting on Tuesday morning was Hout Bay and Tokai, where two helicopters waterbombed flames above the multimillion-rand Tokai plantation for hours, landing at Reddam to “hot fuel” – refuelling without switching off.
One helicopter focused on a thick stand of bluegums just south of Elephant Eye cave, while the other waterbombed the line of fire creeping north along the top of the plantations. Later they were joined by a fixed-wing aircraft that dropped three-and-a-half tons of water at a time. They were helped by the drop in the fierce south-easter overnight, but then the wind changed to a north-westerly during the day, pushing the smoke back over Constantiaberg and making further flying impossible because of poor visibility.
They were forced to leave the area and by late afternoon the fire had got into the plantation.
Late Tuesday afternoon the two Working on Fire helicopters and one from the SA Air Force were waterbombing flames that were moving down towards Clovelly and above Kalk Bay and St James, filling their 1 200-litre Bambi buckets off Fish Hoek beach.
The choppers can no longer take water from the dam in Silvermine as the water level has become so low from the firefighting and SANParks has to ensure the survival of the aquatic life in the dam.
The Diep River blog and Chas Everitt wish our Diep River residents a happy Valentines Day.
I chose my wife, as she did her wedding gown, for qualities that would wear well.
Women are made to be loved, not understood.
The most important things in the world to do are to get something to eat, something to drink, and somebody to love you.
They lived and laughed and loved and left.
You dont love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.
Whatever else is unsure in this stinking dunghill of a world, a mother’s love is not.
Love will heal what language fails to know.
It often occurs to me that we love most what makes us miserable. In my opinion the damned are damned because they enjoy being damned.
How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she was a perfectly normal human being.
Seamus Heaney – meaning ‘dont be afraid’. These were the last words the poet sent to his wife, just before he passed away.
Gravitation can’t be held responsible for people falling in love.
Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.
I haven’t spoken to my wife in years. I didn’t want to interrupt her.
No more confusing PDFs, no more outdated schedules that are almost as frustrating as the power outages themselves – News24 has developed a nifty app that allows you to check exactly when your neighbourhood will be hit by load shedding.
The free web application, Grid Watch allows users to type in their suburb name, and will then churn out an easy-to-understand schedule that shows when your area is set for a power outage, depending on what schedule (Schedule 1, 2, 3A, 3B) Eskom is operating on at the time.
The best part? The app will show you schedules for the next two weeks.
The news site reportedly has plans to develop the app for Android and iOS, so you can check it out on the go.
The new schedules below are designed around the days of the month and reflect Eskom’s decision to implement loadshedding nationally on a regular basis and over weekends. They replace the previous schedules, which were designed around days of the week and were applicable for occasional loadshedding during peak demand times.
Loadshedding stages depend on the extent of the shortage of generation capacity to meet the country’s electricity demand, with stage 1 being the least serious, and stage 3b being the most serious.
Loadshedding outages generally last for about 2,5 hours, with one area being affected at a time during stage 1 and four areas being affected at a time during stage 3b.
