They Said It
"Efficiency at its best." - Sebastian Sigamoney, proprietor of Pietermaritzburg knife maker S4 Manufacturing, reacting to my thanks for his prompt response to an email. Would that there were many more like him in this industry.

I could try to explain that the categories in the directory...oh never mind. It's Christmas.
