Wildlife documentary maker and photographer Austin J. Stevens, who is best known for wrangling venomous snakes, immigrated to Australia recently. Although he had travelled to Australia several times before moving here and is now accompanied by his Australian-born wife Amy, Austin is now wrangling with some of the issues well-known to other immigrants.

South African musician and actor Steve Hofmeyr will be hosted in Queensland by the Afrikaanse Klub Australië (AKA) in May.

At the time of going to press Steve was due to perform only at the Gateway Centre in Mackenzie, Brisbane. Additional performances are possible.

Steve told SAbona that he will be performing his new show Eenduisend en Een. As a rule the show includes his previous hits (‘Pampoen' and ‘Die Bloubul') and other projects (Kristofferson and Diamond). “We'll rock and get all nostalgic,” he says. “Do you remember the words for ‘Liefling'? I hope so!”

Tickets cost $75 for VIP tickets (front row seats), $150 for a family of two adults and two children under 16 years, $50 per adult and children under six years are free.

“The orphans and vulnerable children have been greatly impacted. These ‘rejects' of society feel so important and worthy to have had a group of important overseas visitors just give them the time of day. Just merely being spoken to makes them feel wanted and important. The hugs and having their photos taken made them feel like movie stars. You have made a great difference by just treating them as worthwhile human beings.”

These words are contained in a letter of appreciation written by the principal of the Dunamis Christian School in Welkom, South Africa after Charmaine Wheatley, who was born in South Africa, visited with a team of Australian volunteers recently.

Early 2008 saw dark clouds gathering on the world's economic horizon. We decided it might be a good idea to look for a good job. After a couple of interviews for the position of general manager of tours for Kakadu National Park, we placed our own business Safari Holidays under management and I headed for Cooinda, a place I'd never heard of before. My wife Carol and the kids would follow once the school year drew to a close.

There's something about this time of the year that has me thinking about new life.

Could it be the Easter eggs? Could it be that we select a day to celebrate our mothers, and their gift of life to us? And is that important, or just another commercial opportunity?

What's all the fuss about caffeine?

One minute coffee is good for you and the next it's not good for you. One thing we do know about caffeine is that heavy consumption of this chemical doubles your need for calcium because, as the body strains to eliminate what it perceives as poison, it flushes calcium from your body, via the kidneys.

In the corner of my Adelaide garden is a clump of agapanthus. “Hurt my shoulder trying to lift and divide mine,” complained my patient who came for a physiotherapy session. “Do you know they're actually from South Africa?” So I googled agapanthus (or African lily) and discovered that they naturally occur nowhere else on earth. So the agapanthus and I are aliens from Africa in Adelaide! And so I've decided that if it can survive in South Australia without watering, so can I.

It was a terrible two days, back in 1980 in Port Elizabeth. My dentist expected me to go back the following week to have the wisdom teeth on the left removed, but after he yanked out those on the right hand side and I spent the next two days in agony, I never went back. I've avoided the dentist chair as far as possible ever since.
