Morning Mirror Edition 347 - 10/8/2009

1) Editorial
HOW OLD ARE YOU?
Someone asked the other day, 'What was your favorite fast food when you were growing up?'
'We didn't have fast food when I was growing up,' I informed him. 'All the food was slow.'

'C'mon, seriously. Where did you eat?'
'It was a place called 'at home,'' I explained. !
'Mum cooked every day and when Dad got home from work, we sat down together at the dining room table, and if I didn't like what she put on my plate I was allowed to sit there until I did like it.'

By this time, the kid was laughing so hard I was afraid he was going to suffer serious internal damage, so I didn't tell him the part about how I had to have permission to leave the table. But here are some other things I would have told him about my childhood if I figured his system could have handled it :
Some parents NEVER owned their own house, wore Levis , set foot on a golf course, traveled out of the country or had a credit card. Some never even owned PASSPORTS!
My parents never drove me to school. I had a bicycle that weighed probably 50 pounds, and only had one speed, (slow).
We didn't have a television in our house until I was 19.
It was, of course, black and white, and the station went off the air at midnight, after playing the national anthem and a poem about God; it came back on the air at about 6 a.m. And there was usually a locally produced news and farm show on, featuring local people...

I never had a telephone in my room.The only phone was on a party line. Before you could dial, you had to listen and make sure some people you didn't know weren't already using the line.

Pizzas were not delivered to our home... But milk was.
All newspapers were delivered by boys and all boys delivered newspapers --my brother delivered a newspaper, six days a week. He had to get up at 6AM every morning. Movie stars kissed with their mouths shut.. At least, they did in the movies. There were no movie ratings because all movies were responsibly produced for everyone to enjoy viewing, without profanity or violence or most anything offensive.
MEMORIES from a friend :
My Dad is cleaning out my grandmother's house (she died in December) and he brought me an old Royal Crown Cola bottle. In the bottle top was a stopper with a bunch of holes in it.. I knew immediately what it was, but my daughter had no idea.. She thought they had tried to make it a salt shaker or something. I knew it as the bottle that sat on the end of the ironing board to 'sprinkle' clothes with because we didn't have steam irons. Man, I am old.
How many do you remember?
Head lights dimmer switches on the floor.
Ignition switches on the dashboard..
Pant leg clips for bicycles without chain guards.
Cleaning your bicycle in the school holidays and polishing the tyres with black shoe polish.
Pegging a playing card to the spokes of your bike for an amazing roar.
Soldering irons you heat on a gas burner.
Using hand signals for cars without turn signals.
DO YOU REMEMBER ?

1.Candy cigarettes
2.Coffee shops with tableside juke boxes
3.Home milk delivery in glass bottles
4. Party lines on the telephone
5.Newsreels before the movie and standing for God save the Queen
6..TV test patterns that came on at night after the last show and were there until TV shows started again in the morning (or in the beginning at 5pm). (there were only 3 channels [if you were fortunate])
7.Peashooters
8. Howdy Doody
9. 45 RPM records
10.Hi-if's
11. Metal ice trays with lever
12. Blue flashbulb
13.Cork popguns
14. Studebakers
15. Wash tub wringers
16. Video cameras with a carry around battery or even cine cameras with no sound.
17 What about 'duckies'

Clients lie on a massage table, fully clothed. Cost for the two-session Reconnection is R1800.

Reconnective Healing allows for healings that are not just physical, mental or emotional but which go beyond that to bring you healing that includes the evolution of your very being and essence.

JACARANDA WATCH

Has the Jacaranda watch begun yet ? Believe it or not we saw our first flowers on Friday in Livingstone RD opposite Broadways,I think the stand number is 57. Admittedly the tree is very spindly and the flowers are not very dark and there are not many flowers yet,but there is hope that spring will return!!
Regards
Margaret P.



MORE JACARANDA WATCH !!
Just wondering if I am the only one with a Jacaranda tree that has gone mad, for the past two week we have had a nice big bunch of flowers on just one branch the rest of the tree is still shedding its leave, wow, jacaranda flowers in July, I meant to send this two weeks ago, the flowers are here in Burnside for all to see!.
regards, Rosanne



I would very much like to thank someone, through your news paper. I hope you will allow me to do this.
We are in a very fortunate situation, through the generosity of a friend in Botswana, to make up and hand out monthly food parcels, to certain Old Age Pension Couples - an awesome experience, to be able to be a part of this. Thank you, our friends in Bots.

BUT, I would like to take this opportunity, to thank the owner of the 'Butcher Shop' - who, without me even asking, made a substantial donation, towards these food parcels - and he needs to know, that the meat we handed out, with those parcels, was unbelievably received, by the Old Folks.
It was truly, a very generous gesture, especially, without being asked.
Thank you so much - ''The Butcher Shop'' - in The Zonkizizwe Shopping Complex in Bradfield - and although I don't want this to look like free advertising - wow - your meat is great!

THE EWINGS

I have three specialist books that belonged to my father. I am willing to part with them for a generous donation to Edith Duly Nursing Home They are:
1 Dictionary of Roman Coins Seth William Stevenson, C Roach Smith, Frederic W Madden published in London by B A Searby Ltd in 1964 (In excellent condition)
2 Roman Coins by Richard Reece published in London by Ernest Benn Ltd in 1970 (In excellent condition) ISBN 0-510-06151-6
3 Scottish Pewter-ware and Pewterers by L Ingleby Wood published in Edinburgh by George A Morton. I cannot find a year.
The outer cover was somewhat damaged by our chewing basset hound and the front couple of pages are loose but intact.

Anyone who wishes to view these books can contact me by email on either smithies@mweb.co.zw or judiths@sondelani.co.zw

Judith Smith

On Monday 3rd August 2009 at 2.00 in the afternoon I noticed, once again, a ZRP vehicle being used for something other than Police business.

That business being transporting empty BEER crates from ZRP Hillside to a destination unknown, probably to re-fill them all. This Police Bakkie, ZRP 3337 M , was so loaded and there were 3 people, unrestrained with seatbelts in the front and 2 people perched on top of the empty crates.

This looks like blatant abuse of Police transport and what would a member of the public been told if they had phoned about some emergency, "We have no transport" ...I wonder.

The R,s



The Tattoo Convention went well, the winning ticket numbers where 1 ,2 and 8. we raised R1300 for Edith Duly.

Well done indeed and thanks to the Tattoo Shop

14) SEEKING FRIENDS

I came across your newsletter on the internet when I was trawling through trying to locate any mention of David Reynolds Stokes and was very sad to see that he had died earlier this year.
I never knew him, but he is on my family tree, which I am trying hard to organise, and it seems that his grandfather and my great grandfather were brothers. I am just too late to make contact.
I realise that you may not be able to help me, but is there anywhere I could look to find if there are any other of the Stokes family in Zimbabwe. I think that David's parents left England to farm in what was Rhodesia then,and can hardly imagine the terror and hardship that has overcome thousands of the farming community in recent years. Hoping to hear from you,

with best wishes, Sonia McConville : soniamcconville@yahoo.co.uk

- Cargill Cotton Bearer Cheques
In 2003 & 2004 Cargill Cotton (Harare) issued their own bearer cheques to cotton farmers in rural areas in Mashonaland (maybe Matabeleland?). Standard Chartered returned all redeemed cheques to Cargill Cotton. Cargill Cotton destroyed the returned cheques. However, 15% of the supply were not redeemed and remain with rural cotton growers. Looking for any of these issues and denominations desperately.

- Current Bearer Cheques (2006 - 2008):
$10 000 - first issue with AA prefix on serial numbers. The bearer cheque does not have a space between the 10 and the 000s so it looks like "10000"
$100 000 - first issue with AA prefix on serial numbers. The bearer cheque does not have a space between the 100 and the 000s so it looks like "100000"

- the First Bearer Cheques that came out (2003 - 2006):
$5 000 - Issue Date: 15 Sept 2003. Redemption Date: 31 JANUARY 2004 Signed: Acting Governor *

- Older Rhodesian Notes
Any notes from BEFORE the dollar system - Rhodesia notes/ Rhodesia & Nyasaland / Southern Rhodesia / Commercial Bank Notes e.g. Standard Bank & Barclays. I'm not interested in Rhodesian dollar notes at the moment.
- Other
ANY specimen issues. I collect any specimens I can find. Other bearer cheques, travelers cheques, bank notes or paper items from Zimbabwe/Rhodesia that are unique and interesting. Solid serial numbers e.g. 777777 / radar serial numbers e.g. 1234321 or 000010000 / low serial numbers 0000002
If you can help me with any of these please send me an email at mikefinchday@gmail.com. Please don't email me unless you are serious about selling the notes. You must have a European bank account or Paypal. The dates and details of what I'm looking for are important so please check they match. I am not interested in coins/stamps etc.

The Eagle and The Cross
by John L. Sullivan
Mariannhill Missionary Congregation celebrates 100 years
The Catenian Association provided sponsorship to initiate a limited imprint of this book. This coincides with their own 100th Anniversary this year, and also the 100th Anniversary of the Mariannhill Missionary Congregation that evolved from a Trappist Monastery in Natal.
The central figure is Father Odilo Weeger, CMM, well-known to almost everybody who has grown up or lived in Bulawayo or Matabeleland North, especially if they had to spend time in hospital as he was a dedicated visitor. His life and example touched countless lives. People were the focus of his life and work, and he took a genuine interest in the lives of an amazing number of people who can honestly say that he was their friend.

He was one of the very last group of Missionaries allowed out of Germany before war broke out, and he arrived at Mariannhill, Natal, in 1938. The 100 years of the Congregation of Mariannhill Missionaries, and its founders give an inspiring example, and these missionaries have continuously done wonderful work in Africa and elsewhere throughout the world. The African origins and history of this Order make it unique, and full of challenge and excitement. They and their sister order have produced rich and visible fruits for their work here, and have contributed greatly to the enlightenment and empowerment of their students and followers.

Father Odilo was one of those old-school priests, who were driven by a spirit of great dedication and self-discipline. Above all, they put their lives at the service of God and His Church. There are many other examples of good missionary and religious life, as well as martyrs of old and recent history, and yet each life, each person, each situation one comes across, is still totally unique.
This story is about commitment, and describes a life that helps us to appreciate God's calling, one that Father Odilo heard and followed. His love for Creation made a deep impression on him, as he saw so many situations where the Creator simply had to be recognised and he had a special fondness for the Matopos.

He served in several missions and parishes and founded Fatima and St Luke's Mission Hospitals, as well as numerous other schools and missions in Matabeleland. He was a pioneer of radio and television programmes in this country and an ecumenically active person who was acknowledged by the City of Bulawayo, Rotary, his own German government, the Boys Scouts Association and others.

This is not the time to relax or to abandon the prayer mat - we need to work and pray. At its heart this is a spiritual battle and both activities are vital to our eventual victory.

We must do what we conceive to be right and not bother our heads or burden our souls with whether we'll be successful. Because if we don't do the right thing, we'll do the wrong thing and we'll be part of the disease and not part of the cure.
--E. F. Schumacher
