    We, (you biggest fans), should be thanking YOU for the sexiest entertainment of this century never mind 2016. I hope you are going to be publishing all your blogs into a book so that you can actually benefit financially from your immense talent as your thoughts, ideas and truths totally resonate with me and speak my language, not to mention express my every emotion in a way I wish I could. Power to you Mr. B. xxx

    1. Sexiest entertainment of the century. I like it. We should get married.

    thats great news. i have enjoyed the posts, but my big question, is with all the growth you are boasting about, is your wallet bursting to buy you more beers??

    1. Sadly, growth in readership on a free blog has very little effect on my wallet.

    Your articles are so good I look forward to them every week, and can’t wait for the next one. Thank you for all your work.

  9. Thanks for your wonderful belly wrenching gut ripping laughs in your inimitable style. You have me hooked like a junkie needing to read you every week. Happy holidays and let me know if you ever wondering around the Durbanville area; you know the area we here hate admitting is so close to “Bi- al-ville” .

    1. Pleased to have helped turn you into a junkie, Deborah. If you ever find me wandering around the Durbanville area, please send for the men in white coats. And I don’t mean waiters, either.
