Dave has salad for lunch everyday at work, and to take it from boring to extra-ordinary, I made these toasted seeds. They add a nice bit of crunch to the salad leaves. And I can play around with the spices for different flavours.
Once upon a time South Africa had an amazing State Owned Airline. I was a Voyager member from the first time I flew with them. And when we could get Voyager linked credit cards I did just that. South African Airways flew directly from Cape Town to London, making our overseas trips to see friends and family a breeze. And if we were going to Europe we could fly into Germany either on SAA or Lufthansa or via Switzerland on Swiss Airways. For years we accumulated and used our Miles. But then someone was put in charge who thought it was a good idea to sell all the planes SAA owned. This of course showed a good ‘profit’ for the year. But it also meant they had to lease all their planes back. That person left with a golden handshake and we were left with no planes.

The next person did one better. They gave up the Cape Town to London landing slot at Heathrow. So, if Dave and I wanted to fly with our national carrier we had to layover in Johannesburg. One stupid idea after another, coupled with corruption has led to the collapse of the airline. And the country has bailed it out time and time again! A total waste of our taxes if you ask me. I eventually cancelled our credit cards, and we were left with too few miles to fly anywhere. So yesterday I decided to use what we had to buy some wine. I thought that 8 bottles of wine was better than losing the miles. And at least we will get some enjoyment after our years of loyalty. If you are not South African, does your country have a national airline? And if so, is it self sufficient?
