Not that I needed another reason to drink beer, but thought this was interesting.........:D Cheers:

JOHANNESBURG, July 8 (Reuters) - South Africa's Treasury is proposing a 20 percent tax on sugar-sweetened beverages in a bid to curb consumption of such products and reduce obesity, it said on Friday. :D Cool Drink:

Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan said in February that the government was proposing a new sugar tax from April of 2017.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
