EMAILING US:emailing us - contact us

  • Important! We cannot guarantee you will get a personal response. But we will do our best. We do read all emails that land in our in-box, but due to time constraints as I mentioned above, you might not receive a reply.
  • Please post your comments out in the open instead of emailing us, as there will be others out there who are probably wanting to know an answer to the same question you have.
  • We reserve the right to post your emails sent to us with your first name (we will not post your email address and surname) under a relevant article on the blog.  In these instances we will notify you with a link to the article where your email was copied and pasted as a comment.  We will reply to your email in the comment section.
  • If you still wish to email us, you can email:  Deborah will forward emails to Tom Lessing.

So no matter who you are, we strongly recommend that you please just leave a comment instead of emailing us.  We respond to 99% of all comments made.


All comments are moderated and approved by Tom Lessing and Deborah du Rand.  Depending on the number of comments we receive and have to answer, there may be a delay in your comment being approved – so we ask kindly that you please be patient.


Please email:, Deborah will forward emails to Tom Lessing.
