Christmas time has come again - time for celebrations and family gatherings.. The best time of year in Zimbabwe, when everyone puts on their best sharing smiles and gives to those less fortunate so that all may feel the soft warmth of Christmas in Zimbabwe.

Let us take the time to remember those less fortunate than ourselves, OUR PENSIONERS! Some of them do not have families they can celebrate with, some of them do not have the means for celebration, many of them will sit in their homes alone.. This has been a hard year for all, as the confusion still reigns between a US$ and Rand. Even though we are in real currency our inflation is still soaring, our Pensioners are struggling more than before, with no income or a pension of US$15 (15 loaves of bread) per month how are they supposed to survive. It is only through you the wonderful donors that have made a difference in these peoples lives, PLEASE help us to continue making a difference.

SCS is still running 2 clinics a week and 1 fortnightly. These are a life line to the pensioners where they can see a doctor for free and receive their life saving chronic medication for free. Medication is now being sourced in Zimbabwe, as it is more readily available. We do still source some from Castle Ridge Pharmacy in Pretoria and I would like to thank Hannes Snyman and his team for the amazing job they have done with keeping us supplied with medications when there were none to be found in Zimbabwe.

A thank you also to Edmund De Beer of Tzaneen and his team who for many years have filled the gap with medications, vitamins and minerals. We have boxes sent by him sitting in Musina which need to be brought to Bulawayo. If anyone is passing through please let us know and even if it is only one box at a time, it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks must also go to our 2 pharmacies here, Hillside (Beatrice) and Highfield (Chris) and their dedicated work in making sure our pensioners receive the right medication.

Our medication costs for this quarter were US$14200 EMRAS ambulance 23 calls US$ 690. Thank you to the wonderful staff of Emras, who treat our pensioners with the out most kindness and compassion.

EYES: We tried the government route again and managed to have 3 pensioners seen to for cataracts, but this is a very tedious process with long hours in queues, which many of our pensioners cannot do. We assisted one pensioner with glasses, US$80.
Any donations will be greatly appreciated whether they be in cash or kind. Our bank accounts are as follows, please remember to send an email to scs.fhb@gmail.com to let us know when you make a deposit so that we can trace it and thank you of course! Or contact our office

On the FHB side we received a delivery from HIZ, which was desperately needed to boost our stocks. The monthly delivery to the homes seems to be working well so we will keep it as that. Craig will be making a trip to South Africa and he will bring some goodies from Trade Centre so as to give the homes a bit of Christmas cheer. We are hoping for a delivery before Christmas so we can boost the stocks of the homes for Christmas and if anyone would like to donate meat or chickens for Christmas lunches in the homes please contact me or the office.

Our total deliveries for the last quarter averaged US$ 9500, this is not including the fresh vegetables and eggs. All that is left for me to say is THANK YOU, thank you for the support in 2010, and thank you to the team, who without ,there would not be SCS and I look forward to the challenges of 2011. May the angels be with you.

ROSSINI: LA CENERENTOLA [CINDERELLA]
Friday 17 December in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
- with supper interval. "La Cenerentola" is Rossini's take on the Cinderella story - no fairy godmother or magic tricks, but ugly sisters, a charming prince and bracelets rather than glass slippers to help the d nouement! Appropriately enough, Rossini began work on the opera on Christmas Day 1816 and, if not as well known as The Barber of Seville, it is in no way inferior - and this is a marvelous performance with Cecilia Bartoli in the title role. The production is a traditional one with evocative sets and delightful costumes whilst it's hard to imagine the music being better done. Admission: $3.00 /R20.00 [free to Red Carpet members and subscribers]
A CHRISTMAS CAROL
Thursday 23 December in the Robert Sibson Hall at 2.30 p.m.
A film of Dickens' classic Christmas story using the technique of "animating" real actors in which Jim Carrey is brilliantly transformed not only into Scrooge, but the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future as well. A fantastic family film full of fine performances from actors such as Colin Firth, Gary Oldman and many more - a treat for children and grown-ups alike! Admission: $2.00

WARNING COCOA MULCH
An urgent note from SPCA. Please pass onto your friends and family who may have pets. Please share this with all the pet owners you know and ask them to do the same.
This information will only take a few minutes to share might prevent the senseless death of other pets. Please tell every dog or cat owner you know. Even if you don't have a pet, please pass this to those who do. Cocoa Mulch, sold by garden supply stores contains a lethal ingredient called 'Theobromine'.
It is lethal to dogs and cats. It smells like chocolate and it really attracts dogs. They will ingest this stuff and die. Although the mulch has NO warnings printed on the label, upon further investigation on the company's web site, this product is HIGHLY toxic to dogs and cats.

28a) Christmas Gift Suggestions

Power balance bracelets
Power Balance bands - the latest 'must have' - the perfect Xmas present for young, old, male and female. Available at 26 on Park. For info call 077 715 3584. Made to last, this durable, 100% Surgical Grade Silicone wristband can go anywhere you do. Made with a stretch feature that extends easily over your hand, you'll love the style and comfort it provides. Complete with two Power Balance holograms, this sporty and fun band goes with everything. Find your size and see where the day takes you. What is Power Balance? Power Balance is Performance Technology designed to work with your body's natural energy field. Founded by athletes, Power Balance is a favorite among elite athletes for whom balance, strength and flexibility are important.
How Does the Hologram Work? Power Balance is based on the idea of optimizing the body's natural energy flow, similar to concepts behind many Eastern philosophies. The hologram in Power Balance is designed to resonate with and respond to the natural energy field of the body. What Do Power Balance Users Say? The benefits of Power Balance's performance technology are being enjoyed by hundreds of elite athletes around the world. Tens of thousands of Power Balance fans around the world - from pro athletes to regular people - report having experienced excellent balance, strength and flexibility when wearing a Power Balance product. Why Was Power Balance Created? For centuries many people - including practitioners of many Eastern philosophies - have practiced different methods to seek to optimize the body's natural energy flow. Power Balance was created as an easy and affordable method for the public to enjoy. The idea and subsequent investigation of ways to seek to optimize the body's energy flow is not a new concept. It has been pursued in many ways over hundreds of years. Power Balance has created products designed to respond with your body's natural energy flow in a simple and affordable way. Will Wearing Power Balance Make Me Stronger, More Balanced and Gain Greater Flexibility? Power Balance will not make you stronger than you are, but is designed to help make you as strong as you should be by interacting with your body's natural energy flow. What Do Professional Athletes Say? We have heard from hundreds of fitness professionals, coaches and personal trainers who tell us they have experienced benefits from Power Balance for themselves, their clients and teams. Where/How Is It Made? The holograms are purchased and programmed in the USA. The silicone/neoprene wristbands are manufactured in China.
How Long Does It Last? The holograms are designed to last indefinitely. Will The Wristbands Work For Everyone? While we have received testimonials and responses from around the world about how Power Balance has helped people, there is no assurance it can work for everyone.

WRIGHTS NURSERY NEWS LETTER 1/12
Our November rains were generally very light (we had 75mm of largely small showers) but December has seen the arrival of proper heavy soaking rain. This heavy rain soaks down deep and gets to the roots of our trees and bigger shrubs, which were all suffering some what. Last month I mentioned 'roof water' and how to utilize it better. The other big source of water we can capture is the runoff from areas with impervious hard standing like roads, drive ways, paved areas, tennis courts and entertainment areas. All these area shed large quantities of water, which should ideally be channeled back into our gardens. Putting in run off drains along your driveway is one way to harvest this resource. I have seen many folk capture rainwater from tar roads by re-directing water from storm drains into their own gardens. When you see how much water goes bucketing down the roads and drains after a big storm you start to think how you could tap into this supply. These potentially large volumes of water, that could be captured in ones garden, are especially useful to build up underground water supplies.

WHAT TO DO IN DECEMBER
Your spring garden planning is now coming into its own and your main job is to have your garden looking at its best for the Holidays. We are now in between seasons and there is not much new work you can do. Routine things to do in December: Keep up with your mowing and sharpen your mower blades at least once a month. Weeds are growing fast now and need regular sorting out. If the weeds are getting away from you it may worth trying a chemical herbicide for a quick result. Pavers, drive ways, parking areas can all be treated with a non-selective weed killer like Drive Weeder, Round Up or Ridder. (They all contain glysophate) Mix at the rate of 30mls per liter. Roses should now go onto a twice monthly fungicide routine using products like Diathane M45, Copper-oxychloride or Special Fungicide. I spray one product for one month and then alternate the next month to minimize building up resistance. Spray your Amaryllis, Clivias, Agapanthus and other lilies with Dimthoate to control the Lily borer. ( A black and yellow caterpillar that can eat the heart out of your lilies. Keep up with regular pruning to build a dense and well shaped plant. ECO/ENVIRO The ideal soils contain good quantities of both humus and nutrition.

WHAT IS HUMUS?
Any decayed organic material. It should be well rotted and dark in colour. (Fresh organic material, including stable waste, is harmful to your plants). Compost should not be sieved too fine for general work as it will break down too fast. Composts and manures have a life of about 6 months in your soil before they break down completely.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Humus gives 'body' to your soil but has very little real nutrition. (It could be likened to having plenty of fiber in ones diet.) This 'body' allows for: Improved water penetration. Improved water retention. Lightens heavy soil. Builds light, sandy soil. Regulates the supply of inorganic fertilizer. Builds the good soil micro-organisms and bacteria. Slowly builds up the nutritional levels Continuous use of compost in your garden will build up your soils in an environmentally sustainable way. With a more healthy soil, you will have less pests and diseases and therefore less spraying of chemicals. How ever composts and manures have very little real nutrition ie about 1%

SO WHAT ABOUT NUTRITION?
BASICS Your soil needs four main ingredients for good growth o Humus or compost/manure - to give body to your soil o Nitrogen (N) - to promote growth and good final yields o Phosphate (P) - to give plants a good start, strong roots and shoots o Potash (K) - to induce healthy growth, resistance to disease and drought whilst improving the quality of all crops.
FERTILIZERS
All fertilizers should show the ratios of N, P and K on them. This indicates their best usage ie. Comp D - Ideal general garden fertilizer for vegetables, flowers, trees (8:14:10) and even lawns Comp C - Ideal for extra feeding on plants that yield more ie. roses, (6:17:15) tomatoes, pot plants Comp X - The original lawn fertilizer but tends to burn lawns if not (20:10:5) watered immediately Comp J - Now recommended more for lawns than Comp X. Better (15:5:15) balance of nutrients and less likely to burn the lawn. SSP - 18 % pure phosphate. Essential to start all your garden plantings with. AN - 34 % pure nitrogen. Very strong and should be used sparingly and appropriately. You can see from the %'s that there is a great deal more nutrition in chemical fertilisers then in composts. As you build up your soils with compost you will see will see increasing levels of soil nutrition and you will be able to decrease your use of chemical fertilisers.

WHATS IN THE NURSERY?
We have a good selection of plant gift ideas ranging from potted plants, succulent pots, Pony tail palms, Yule logs, Reindeer, Sleighs and Stars.

FAQ'S IN NOVEMBER
We had many enquiries about "why are my fruit trees dropping their immature fruits?" If your watering is adequate then the most likely reason is that your fruit tree does not have enough nutrition to grow out the crop. You need to fertilise to get a good crop.
Happy Gardening and enjoy the Holidays.
Dave
