‘Made in Stanford’: Stick Hard

_DSC2235_tonemapped‘Made in Stanford’ by Veldparm and designated for the Afrikaner man: ‘Stokstyf’

Translated for the non Afrikaans speaking people: ‘Stokstyf in die onderlyf’ means ‘Stick Hard in the lower body’.
The package also mentions: ‘Do you seek an additional boost between the sheets’; ‘Erection and libido capsules for men’.

And there seems to be a huge market for it: “One wholesaler orders average 10,000 packages weekly”, says the owner of Veldparm. Each package contains 3 capsules. The difference with Viagra capsules is that the ingredients of ‘Stokstyf’ capsules are natural extracts of herbs without any chemical addition.

Well, one can say a lot about our village but don’t say that there is no entrepreneurship … 🙂 🙂 🙂

P.S. Veldparm has also simular ‘enhancement’ products for women. The products are nationwide available in diverse outlets including pharmacists.

Virtually all neighbouring farmers were laughing loud saying ” Ag julle malle Hollanders en julle water werke ….” (“you crazy Dutch and your water works…”). One year later we had the first flood rain; we were laughing. In 2003 another flood rain. Just before this flood rain one of the neighbours let his staff moving rocks uphill to avoid visitors of staff going with their cars uphill (well it’s South Africa and the time still…

Flood Rain in the Village

Herman van Bon Photography

Since yesterday heavy rains. The forecast is over 10cm of rain during this weekend.

Two pictures shot this morning in our street. Luckily we are high up. Further on towards Cape Town, in Somerset West, a hospital had to be evacuated and the Cape Flats (‘townships’) are flooded. My thoughts are with all those unfortunate.
