In setting up the BlocksAndBricks.co.za blog, we obviously gave considerable thought to the name. In the process we discovered that bricks.com was available for sale – for a cool $250 000 (See it here) I think most people would agree, that’s a really big pile of bricks; R2 500 000 give or take a bad day in forex!
Anyhow, we are more than happy that our BlocksAndBricks.co.za domain will serve us well in our desire to communicate news about … blocks and bricks!
Thanks to Cape Brick for all the support and enthusiasm in our efforts to establish the blog! We really appreciate your commitment to this venture and to the environment which is a key focus area for our blog site.
