All expensive and upper middle class homes have electrical fencing as part of their security here. Enough to make sure you never touch it again.

My surname comes from Germany, two brother that moved to SA early 1700’s.
My first name was a German Surname, Dr Hässner who moved to SA late 1700’s, had a daughter that married to one of the children of the two German bothers. 
His surname died out here, so it became a name.

Hassner is your first name?  Ha!  I was wondering what your avatar name meant.  Well it's really nice to meet you.  Mine is Jane, although my mother calls me Janet, and I never liked that name so I go by Jane.

Hi Jane, I thought I mentioned it before. 

Janet, Jane, all fine.

Imagine growing up with a name everyone struggles with when they hear it.
The only other Hassner Pepler in SA moved to France, so I am the only one here.
Nine out of ten people I am introduced to repeat “Hasler?” to me.
I am so thankful for the 10%.

It seems like a straight forward name if you want my two cents.  Is it pronounced as "Hass-ner"?  Like "David hasselhoff"   with "Hass"?

Although most of my forefathers are from German decent, there are French and Dutch too.

I do not see myself as any of those, as we have our own language (Afrikaans) and culture that developed in the Cape. 

No Hasselhof fans that I know of. 
As a matter of fact, actors that speak out on politics as if their view should carry weight, made their status fall. So only kids here might idolise actors.

You know me, I have a track record of asking you things a couple times :whistle:   Honestly though, I don't remember this part about your name.  Interesting stuff though.  How many languages do you speak then?

In my case, just English and a little bit of Spanish.

Only Afrikaans and English. 
And a few sentences in German.
I refreshed my basic skills for Berlin 2 years ago, never needed it.
