Anyone got any tips for a green pool?

Yes. Get a microscope. A green pool is far more interesting than a spotless blue one. :-)

Who will be joining the e-toll wheel-a-thon tomorrow? I'll most likely be late for work as all the routes leads to my workplace.

Johannesburg - Cosatu will take to the highways in cars on Thursday to protest against e-tolling in Gauteng, it said on Wednesday.

"We won't be marching and demonstrating with our feet this time; we will be demonstrating with our wheels," Congress of SA Trade Unions (Cosatu) Gauteng chairperson Phutas Tseki told reporters in Johannesburg.

"We will be driving slowly."

Tseki said this was not a strike and that workers would be at their posts on Thursday.

Cosatu leaders, full-time shop stewards, and leaders of Cosatu affiliates were expected to participate.

"We will do this for almost seven hours," Tseki said.

There would be two campaigns - one in Ekurhuleni and one in Johannesburg.

Considering they're going to meet at 6am already, its going to be interesting to listen to the morning traffic reports.

Uhm, so, anyone see/hear anything bad about this? I drove in this morning pretty uneventfully. I don't take the highway but I cross it and expected mayhem. But none.

Apparently only starts at nine. My route was busier than usual but not gridlocked, I suspect that many people will simply avoid the highways and take alternate routes. We'll have to see if this exercise will be a success or not. I'm just wondering how many Cosato members (not leaders) actually owns a car...
