1) Editorial


WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEARN A NEW SWEAR WORD ?

Its quite easy finding idle entertainment in Zimbabwe. We in fact have a tremendous amount of fabulous things to do, everyone always remarks on just how busy we all are in Bulawayo with our really great and fun diary of events. But when one does not feel like going to the theatre or to a night club or restaurant, one can find endless sources of entertainment to occupy a dreary rainy day.

For example there is a great game called "looking into the minds of ZESA."

Now ZESA is a swear word in Zimbabwe, it is an acronym for Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Commission and it can be used in place of many delightfully satisfying profanities.

When one bangs ones thumb with a hammer try swearing 'ZESA" loudly, when one has a fellow running a stop sign, the expletive 'ZESA" is awfully satisfying. The cuss-word "ZESA" is also most useful when one receives one ZESA bill and one is charged $300 for a whole month of no electricity !!

Now getting into the head of ZESA is challenging to say the least. They have given us a load shedding schedule and we are happy to abide by their well thought out programme of power cuts. Its taken a lot of thought after all. Imagine those erudite and educated fellows in ZESA house on the top floor. "Well lets cut Suburbs, Hillside and Burnside continually, and lets cut the Old Age Homes and Frail Care centers non stop. We can just visualize the old folk staggering around in the dark trying to find the loo !! Lets cut the western areas too, they are such nice placid people, they seldom complain.

And we can treat some of the other suburbs have the odd power cut just to keep them on their toes !! Ah but lets also test their mettle and give them power cuts outside their load shedding schedules, just to keep them up to speed " Now, the game "getting into the Minds of Zesa" is complicated but fun. For example, lets say its Tuesday, now Tuesday evening is supposed to be our load shedding treat, but is it to be or not to be ??? That is the question.

When does one do ones laundry ? When does one do ones ironing, do I have time to put the slow cooker on or is it to be a microwave meal tonight??? Housewifely thoughts - they cut us last night (unscheduled) so the chances are we will get a back to back cut this morning, I mean that would be the sensible thing to do would it not ?

Lets face it, back to back power cuts are so much more likely to allow for the complete defrosting of our deep freeze after all. So with that in mind, lets crank up the old washing machine and put on the slow cooker this afternoon shall we? It takes a lot of planning, contemplating and conniving to outwit ZESA !!

Another great source of entertainment is called "Trying to decipher the hand signals of the police at roadblocks". Now this is a common occurrence in Zimbabwe as there can be as many as four road blocks on a 30km stretch of road. Each police station, even if its five Km from the next, must have a road block, specially on a nice warm sunny day.. Now we are all familiar with the standard police arm gestures, the go, the stop, the slow down, please proceed etc. However the men in khaki and fluorescent yellow have their own intimate and undecipherable gestures. Ooops can I go, must I stop ?

Is he waving at a friend perhaps ? Is he swatting a fly? Maybe he has an itch ???? Possibly something in his jacket is bothering him ?

When one does stop in exasperation, one is waved on imperiously, and one certainly cannot afford to be confused as there may be a fellow with a gun hiding up ahead behind a bush..

Of course one of our favourite pastimes right now is pothole dodging. HeeHoo has worked out a pothole free circuit from the house to the office, having spent many bumpy hours contemplating the routes and complexities thereof. The amount of rain we have been having has put a serious strain on the road repairers' reserves and as fast as HeeHoo finds a haven road, so does everyone else and then that road will deteriorate quickly too.

He has chosen such a circuitous path (warpath maybe?) he now needs his GPS to get to the office !! As for the physiotherapists they must be doing a roaring trade. My neck has been in pothole spasm for weeks now, and I am sure the tyre repair companies are doing a roaring trade.

PAB AND THE ACADEMY
BERNSTEIN: MASS
Thursday 3 February in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.30 p.m.
"Mass" is perhaps the most ambitious and controversial piece Leonard Bernstein composed and in no way a setting of the liturgy but a theatrical piece for a full symphony orchestra, marching band, rock group, electronic music, children's and adult choruses and a dance group. This performance was recorded live in 2003 in the Papal Audience Hall in Vatican City before an audience that included over thirty cardinals! Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]
BERNSTEIN: CANDIDE
Friday 4 February in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
- with supper interval. Petroc Trelawny will introduce the DVD. "Candide" was Bernstein's child of sorrow, a Broadway musical based on Voltaire's novel that preceded "West Side Story" and flopped. It was over thirty years before its comic and musical genius were fully appreciated and this concert performance conducted by the composer was recorded in London only a few months before his death. "...the most exciting video I have come across this year." The Guardian Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]
PETROC TRELAWNY TALKS ABOUT THE PROMS
Tuesday 8 February in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.30 p.m.
After his appearances at last year's Bulawayo Music Festival, Petroc Trelawny is well known in Bulawayo.

"...pacy and funny and beautifully acted." The Times. Admission: $3.00 [$6.00 the series]
OFFENBACH: THE TALES OF HOFFMANN
Friday 18 February in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.

The truePoint Consciousness Development presents:
Awaken - Transform - Emerge
When it comes to life, most of us want more. The question is more of what.? What is this urge to become more...? Where does it come from...? Where does this lead to...? and..what is the purpose of thePoint ? To awaken you with a perspective that will radically transform your experience of living by enabling you to emerge with: Awareness of Purpose, Clarity of Intention and Presence of Mind at all times, in all places, through all circumstances without exception What is thePoint? This teaching, in its profound simplicity, is about empowering the true authentic self and provides tools to ensure that your actions are aligned with what you naturally know to be true. It is about the science of true expression - an exploration and discovery of ways of being authentic in all aspects of your life. What will you gain? Nourish your whole being: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, Open the possibility of living a life of deep and authentic self expression - who I think I am vs who I truly am, Gain a method of authentic inquiry that will empower you with self-knowledge - higher creative potentials, Learn how to hold authentic power in a way that empowers everyone around you - an eternal urgency to co-create and the "Wheel of Emergence": 6 Fundamentals & 6 Imperatives (actions) of Emergence. When we get the right people in a room, the impossible becomes imaginable...it becomes a collective expression - an ecstatic urgency to contribute by living a life of significance. We invite you to collaborate in the truePoint series by joining us for thePoint perspective. Together with Stephen Norval (the founder & visionary), you will explore the perspective of natural intelligence - how it informs, and is ultimately the source of, true excellence within every human interaction eg. success vs significance, perfection vs excellence, impress vs express.
Perspective starts on Thursday 3rd February and runs through Sunday 6th February

3) Roses And Raspberries
On Sunday 30 January 2010 at around 18h30 I was walking my dog on Bulawayo Golf Course. I entered from Winnie's Way and in the distance towards Phillips Drive saw a family with three large dogs. They disappeared from view as I turned toward the Matsheumhlope River and sat on a bench for some quiet time. My dog, a cross breed about the size and weight of a Dalmatian, was at my heels. As I got up to go, a Boerbull appeared from nowhere and seized my dog across the back. Two Alsatians also made up the attacking pack but were not as vicious as the Boerbull. The Boerbull would not release my dog but continued the shake her violently. Eventually, my hollering and use of my dog's leash made the attacker release it's grip and the pack disappeared. I was in shock and could not believe what had happened.

The thought of rabies, vets bills, and the fate of any smaller dog should it be in the same situation in the future made me turn and follow the pack. The family, out of view behind some undergrowth, must have heard the dog fight and my shouting, but they were casually walking toward their car, a late model single cab silver Toyota. There was a heavily built, balding & crew cut man, a slim woman with thick black hair, a younger woman and a boy of about 10 years of age, who I took to be the daughter and son of the couple. Although they could see me they climbed into the vehicle with the dogs and children in the back tray.

I moved toward the vehicle and shouted at them to stop. The next thing I knew was the dogs were off the vehicle and again the Boerbull led the attack, this time seizing hold of my dogs rump. For what seemed an eternity I tried to back away from the attack and eventually picked up my dog to prevent further injury, walking, shouting and crying all the time until I could no longer move. The man who had left his car was by then about ten metres from me but made no attempt to handle his dogs, who eventually obeyed him and returned to the vehicle, which he did as well. I was incredulous. I shouted for him to give me his name and address but he continued to his vehicle, climbed in, and drove off, taking a short cut out of the course onto Phillips Drive. All he had said to me was what did I come back for?

My right hand was bloodied from a dog bite, I was limping, and my sweater was in shreds, all of which he could clearly see.
Thank you to the doctor and sister on duty at Mater Dei who attended me - I now have had to have anti- tetanus and rabies vaccinations and as I write do not know what damage was done to my dog. If you have caused injury to another, however inadvertent, you should take responsibility - common decency as well as the law requires no less . Children are our sacred trust; what kind of example is this man setting for his children? Such dogs, unrestrained in the back of an open vehicle, let alone on a golf course, are a danger to the public.
Rob Waters - The Bulawayo Club; 64868-9.

I would like to give a huge huge Raspberry to the people who lease the Conservancy???? at Hillside Dams for hosting theDj bash on Saturday night which disturbed the peace and quiet of the residents of neighborhood until 0400 on Sunday morning.We own our houses and are entitled to complain about this sort of unsociable noise. There was a previous event held there titled Drums of Peace they sounded more like war drums to me We do not need this in our neighborhood
Irate Hillside Resident

The Hillside Dams Conservancy would like to extend our most sincere apologies for the considerable discomfort that was caused by an event that happened at Hillside Dams on Saturday evening into Sunday morning. The promoters of the event exceeded their mandate and did not comply to any of the instructions given to them and agreed upon. We were not given the full story and are horrified as to what happened. We would like to assure everyone that this will NOT be allowed again and that actions will be taken to rectify the lapse in our administration in this regard. The Conservancy is first and foremost a natural area and this type of function is totally incompatible with the aims of the Conservancy which are the promotion of Recreation, Education and Conservation. We sincerely apologise once again.
We would be happy to receive any written comments which can be left at the office at Hillside Dams or emailed to estate@hillsidedams.com. This will allow us to get back to people personally once we have established how this unfortunately event was sanctioned and controlled.

21) Seeking Friends

Does anyone have an e mail address for artist Kaufman Ndhlovu? If so please may I have it. magskriel@mac.com

I wonder if you can help me? I am searching for a Miss Fay Letts who used to be a teacher at a school in Harare in the 1970's. My Zimbabwean friend has fond memories of her and would like to contact her if possible. She named her first child after her. As I have internet access I said I would see if I could find her. Other contacts we would be pleased to get in touch with are a Miss Parks who was at Mrehwa and also an American lady called Miss Fulmer. All had connections or were missionaries with the United Methodist Church. I hope you will be able to help us.
Thank you.

I have had a request from overseas and wondered if any of our senior citizens could help. Does anyone recall a Liverpool Hospital in Bulawayo? It would seem that it may have been a maternity home or had a maternity wing as the enquirer says his grandfather claims to have been born there. Any information on this hospital would be most appreciated.
Please contact Clare Campbell on ccampbell@davisgranite.co.zw or Tel : (W) 406343/4/5, (H) 71637, Cell 0912 319 718.

There are two Bulawayo ballerinas who you mention and I would really like to know whether you have any further information on their whereabouts. They are Debbie Woods (now York) and Linda Brittain and both apparently went on to train at the Royal Academy. If you do have any additional info I would be most grateful!
Best regards
