June is a prestigious time of year. If youâ€™re in the Northern hemisphere it is the time of year when spring seems to explode with colour and hay fever sufferers give tissue retailers their second annual boom (the first coming after the 14th of February.) If youâ€™re in the Southern Hemisphere itâ€™s the dry season and things become far less interesting.
Summer has finally arrived at Littlegate Publishing, a measurement we put on the calendar depending on when Donnie Rust starts wearing his Bermuda shorts and I get complaints about his dancing. It also encouraged a lot of backwards-and-forwards between our three comedy writers- Donnie Rust, Jim Blythe and Rob James.
For this month weâ€™ve searched the world over and as usual we have brought you the best of the best. We look at sporting hero Oscar
Pistorius, Zenith Steel, Southey Contracting, Total Wind and Fuchs Lubricants show us the beauty of engineering and metalwork, Cape Town Transport takes us places, Coega IDZ brings it home to South Africa, Promeal and Royal Canin show us the best ways to look after manâ€™s best friends.
We sent two of our writers to South Africa to visit Guvon Hotels (February Issue) to experience their service and hospitality first hand
and it was there that they discovered the tragedy of Rhino Poaching in the country.
This is the first of a two part series featuring the Rhino Poaching travesty and what the few brave people have to do to keep these
animals safe in their natural environment.Â This is not a localized problem as itâ€™s ignorance and greed that is at the root of its problem and weâ€™re looking to bring you the facts.
I invite you, dear reader, to partake and enjoy in this issue of the magazine. It is an issue I hope will engage and motivate as much
as it will entertain. You can read our previous issues here.
