Sensible leisure activities

The following are some of the activities I engage in.

Bridge is one of the most challenging card games out there. I play it only socially and make use of a relatively simple system called the "Sanlam Club" where we bid a strong club and a weak no trump. An explanation of the system can be found on the Afrikaans pages.

The Formula 1 Grand Prix is the biggest annual sporting event in the world. The ultimate test for man and machine. I have been supporting Michael Schumacher since his Benetton days and believe he is not only the best driver of his generation (by far), but definitely also one of the best ever.

The list is by no means complete and more will be added as I get time...
