AS I write this I can hear cheering and hooting and the honking of vuvuzelas as the Bok bus snakes its way through the streets of Cape Town. The office is basically deserted, even though it’s deadline day – but you can’t stop anyone from wanting a morsel of the magic that’s swept across South Africa since the Rugby World Cup final. Cape Town was the last stop on Siya and the squad’s frenetic victory tour and they must’ve been exhausted. Journalists on the road with the Boks told of how gruelling the trip was: up early, to bed late, besieged by frenzied fans wherever they went. But they never once flagged, never once turned away a selfie-seeker or autograph hunter. “Siya and Rassie told the team they weren’t doing the tour…

sibling revelry

MANY guys move mountains for the girls they’re wooing but not many make the same effort with their sisters. If you want to spoil someone, choose your sister – she too deserves surprise gifts. I remember one morning I woke my sister up and gave her a box of chocolates. The joy of seeing the smile on her face was priceless. My baby sister is the best thing that’s happened to me. I was a kid when I first saw her lying next to my mom. I was so amazed by her tiny fingers. I tried to touch them, but she grabbed my finger with her soft little hand and held on to it with a smile. I suddenly felt a rush in my veins. She was my own blood . . .…

THE ZILLE FACTOR I was shocked to see Helen Zille decided to stand for chair of the federal council of the DA (YOU, 7 November). Although she was once a great leader I feel she should have left the position to someone younger who’d have helped the party grow further. I was hoping the DA would become a great party that united the nation but now I really doubt that’ll happen. LA BIERMAN, FAERIE GLEN I want to voice my grave disappointment in Helen for not staying in retirement. The one shred of hope I had in the DA has been destroyed. Shame on you. LYN, MENLO PARK SEX NEVER GETS OLD I read the recent letter from Still Sizzling about keeping your sex-life going when you’re in your sixties (YOU Say, 31 October) with interest. For those…

on top of the world

It’s with pride and patriotism that I can say I’m South African. I believe in our potential as well as our ability to overcome challenges. It’s easy to lose sight of our strengths and achievements as a nation and just how far we’ve come since 1994. This Rugby World Cup win speaks to our collective resilience and strength (YOU, 14 November). Nelson Mandela once said sport has the power to change the world. In light of this, let’s believe in our country and reach new heights. After all, we’ve now won the Rugby World Cup three times. The Webb Ellis Trophy is for ALL of us to hold up high! TRACY COHEN, EMAIL The Boks’ recent success in Japan is a perfect example of how far teamwork can take you. They triumphed through their individual…

in brief

As a speech therapist I take YOU to my weekly session with a dear lady I see in an old-age home. I tell you, that mag is the best and most fun therapy tool ever. We do the sudoku and the word searches, have earnest discussions about the royals, laugh at the silly outfits . . . the list goes on. And the old folk love it. LAURA RUSSELL, EMAIL To New Beginning (YOU Say, 31 October): my husband was also having an affair – but he didn’t realise he wasn’t the only married man in her life. I left him and moved on but he was left with an STD she’d given him. He deserved it. Now I’m enjoying my life while he’s miserable. RIA, PIETERMARITZBURG Why must David Rakgase buy the land…
