Are there enough NG Kerk members to justify a "gemeente"?. I prefer my own way of worship and would welcome this. Please comment and let's see if we can get one going. I'm personally not really comfortable with the non-demominational Places of Worship. Maybe still a bit conservative.
I am personally willing to dedicate time to this if there is a real interest.

MUGABE IN HEAVEN
Mugabe dies and goes to heaven. When he gets there, St. Peter tells him that he is not on the list and he does not belong in heaven.
Mugabe must go to hell.So Mugabe goes to hell where Satan gives him a hearty welcome and tells him to make himself at home. Then Mugabe notices that he left his luggage in heaven and tells Satan, who says "No problem, I'll send a couple of little devils to get your stuff.
When the little devils get to heaven they find the gates are locked St.Peter is having lunch - and they start debating what to do.
Am now a month and a week in Doha today and am dying for some Pap and stew. Does anyone Know where i can buy some Corn Flour (ACE or IWISA) as we call them back home? Please!!!!!
While we are boiling in Doha, our families back home are freeeeeezing in the snow! It must have been a wonderful sight to see the country covered in white.
The Mail and Guardian has a photogallery of user-submitted photos of the snow. They also have a very cool map with photos mapped to places in the country where it snowed!

Is it just me or is it just painful to try to get a visit visa to Qatar for your family? My parents are over 60 and it all seems like an uphill battle trying to get a visa for a mere 2 weeks so my folks can visit here.
The South African Embassy has been promising for years that they would do something about this...
Anyone have any tips or tricks to get around this?
