  2. Re: Forget petrol: Woolies rotisserie chicken gets another price hike!

    All this thread has done is make me lus for a Woolies chicken. ;D

    For science, I will have to go buy one and see if the quality has dropped with the increase in price.
  3. Re: Forget petrol: Woolies rotisserie chicken gets another price hike!

    Build the firepit as high as you need for braaing and ambiance.

    We launched plenty of boats in 2H and 4H.

    Because the bakkies are rear wheel driven, the extra weight of the boat on the trailer does aid in grip on the slipway.
