Joanne Gibson: On Cape wine during the 1660s

Thursday, August 2, 2018

When the Cape’s first winegrower, Jan van Riebeeck, departed for VOC headquarters in Batavia in April 1662, his successor as commander was Zacharias Wagenaar of Dresden, Saxony (Germany). The son of a judge and painter, Wagenaar was a clerk, merchant, member of the Court of Justice and illustrator, and his career with the Dutch East India Company (VOC) would span 35 years and four continents. Did he share his predecessor’s enthusiasm for wine? Certainly he didn’t find official Company vine plantings much to get excited about. According to the instructions Van Riebeeck had left for him, there were precisely 832 vines planted in the Company’s Garden and at the fort, of which only 82 had produced fruit, while the remaining 750 comprised young rooted vines.

However, Van Riebeeck’s ‘own’ vines at Bosheuvel were ‘thriving very beautifully’ (even if there weren’t quite 10-12,000 planted, as he claimed) and some of the vrijburghers farming along the Liesbeeck River (from present-day Mowbray...http://winemag.co.za/joanne-gibson-on-cape-wine-during-the-1660s/

Who Was Zsa Zsa Gabor? The Inspiration for World's Ugliest Dog's Name

Thursday, August 2, 2018

George Saunders went on to marry Gabor’s sister, Magda. Gabor's final marriage to Prince Frederick von Anhalt in 1986 earned her the title of  Princess von Anhalt, Duchess of Saxony, although there's been speculation about the validity of her husband's title. "What is really important for a woman, you know, even more than being beautiful or intelligent, is to be entertaining,” she said, according to Marie Claire.Her life in the spotlight, however, didn’t come without its share of scandal. In 1989 she was convicted of assaulting Beverly Hills police officer Paul Kramer when he pulled her over for having expired license-plate tags.She served three days in the El Segundo jail, according to the LA Times, and paid almost $13,000 in fines. Gabor also paid $3.3 million in damages in 1993 to actress Elke Sommer, who sued her for slander after Gabor called her a “has-been.”   Flowers left in remembrance of actress Zsa Zsa Gabor on her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles California, on December 19, 2016. Zsa Zsa Gabor, the Hungarian-born Hollywood siren perhaps better known for her prodigious love life than her movie credits, died after suffering a heart attack on Sunday. RINGO CHIU/Getty Images According to biography.com, towards the end of her life, the once-vibrant Hollywood star took a turn for the worse with a series of medical conditions, including:2002: She spent several days in a coma after a car accident and was hence confined to a wheelchair.https://www.newsweek.com/who-was-zsa-zsa-gabor-inspiration-worlds-ugliest-dogs-name-1018341
