1) BOULEVARDS AND BANNERS

Most cities have their own famous boulevards. Paris has the Avenue des Champs Elys es for which the name translates into "the place where heroes come to relax" - perhaps one of the most famous avenues in the world stretching from the Arc De Triomphe to the Place de la Concorde.

New York of course has Broadway one of the longest streets in the world, It may not be the favorite spot of New Yorkers themselves (except for New Year's Eve, when hordes gather to watch the annual ball drop down the One Times Square building), but tourists often make it a priority to step into the heart of the American Theatre Industry. And its not so much for the musicals, but rather for New York's archetypal street buzz and the world famous, scintillating billboards strung all over the Time Square area.

Venice has a river as its main boulevard - the famous Grand Canal and Las Vegas has its garish Las Vegas Boulevard, commonly known as the Strip, while Los Angeles has Sunset Boulevard. London has many famous boulevards, Piccadilly is a major street in central London, running from Hyde Park Corner in the west to Piccadilly Circus in the east, where wedding processions take place with all the pomp and ceremony that is England, and ofcouse they also have the famous Oxford Street.

Now little old Bulawayo has Leopold Takawira Avenue, once called Selborne Avenue, framed by our once beautiful Centenary Park, the Bulawayo Theatre, Eveline School the Museum of Natural History, and the historic hapless City Fountain, "now you see it,now you don't."

Once bordered with magnificent King Palms, Silver Oaks and Jacarandas, this monumental avenue features the towering Kenilworth Towers at one end and the city skyline at the other. Now I have lived two blocks from Takawira my entire life so I know this boulevard intimately. I know exactly where the policemen with radar guns hide. I have watched with sadness as the Christmas lights, which used to be so amazing, have dwindles to pathetic strings of indiscriminate globes strung carelessly across the Avenue.

I have watched the Silver Oaks die or being forcibly removed one by one. I have watched as the telecommunications companies have dug up the side of the road and left it in a disgusting mess along the north side, pavements askew, piles of dirt left unattended, the cycle and pedestrian paths a danger to to all who pass. I have watched the gigantic jacaranda trees wither to pitiful shadows of their former selves as the tar mac and litter builds up around them, choking the very life out of them.

I have watched our glorious park decay into a wilderness, the wonderful city folk regularly begin sporadic clean up exercises, but no one continues with the maintenance and it is now once again an appalling eye sore. In the olden days one could wander down to the lake in the Centenary Park and feed the white and black swans. The lake wound its way under the elegant bridge near the entrance to the park, one could sit and picnic on the beautiful manicured lawns, take the children to the magical Disney style lights at Christmas time. Wander across the boulevard to the beautifully and lovingly maintained Nativity Scene near the giant Christmas tree - but no more. Our park is now a haven for criminals, desperate lovers, and the homeless.

I have watched with interest recently as two gigantic foundations were dug near Park Road on the northern end. Perhaps tis to be an Independence Arch celebrating the fabulous years the city has been served so incredibly by the current government ? Perhaps its a memorial for our glorious ruler ? They are gigantic foundations, and then last week two enormous columns arrived, bright blue in colour, obviously the columns to be used to festoon our once beautiful boulevard with some sort of important historic event for the country ?

Alas no. As much as an Independence Arch would have been out of place and incongruous, my diminutive friend Rosemarie told me aghast, that these gigantic columns, not only will be placed here but at several other strategic places in the city and will support, almost as big as the Arc De Triomphe, signs for a cellular mobile phone company. !!! Emblazoned obscenely across a four lane highway leading into the City of Kings, without thought to beauty, without the permission of the populace, without thought to grace or appropriateness, once again, the people of Bulawayo will have a monstrosity forced upon them without their consent !!

Already the cities and the countryside areas are littered with hundreds of gargantuan red and white steel towers that are like blights on the face of the countryside. No effort at all has been made to disguise them as in other cities. Just as Rosemarie had circuited the city on the war path, I flew at HeeHoo for some advice and reassurance. He is after all my sounding board, my mentor, a great leveler, my sage in all things. "My dear" he said mildly, "there are millions of gigantic hideous billboards in all the cities all over the world!"

I stared at him in horror !! Philistine !! Uncaring fellow.. And then I realised that he is after all not a real Bulawegian. HeeHoo only came to Bulawayo in 1976. He is a new comer, interloper, new-kid-on-the-block, (a Shifty even !!)

For some time now I have had a sneaking suspicion that he patronizingly indulges me in my campaigns, causes, crusades and crises so his lack of sympathy is nothing new ..

Of course, I sniffed to myself, he would not understand my distress. Only a true blue dyed in the wool Bulawegian possesses this strange unfathomable passion for boulevards and all things Bulawayo.

Now what does one do under the circumstances. Beat ones head against the floor ? Rent one's clothes? March on City Hall ? Or pray that sanity will prevail, and if they have to desecrate our Beloved Bulawayo Boulevard - maybe the signage will read "Welcome to Bulawayo - City of Kings !! And in smaller letters "Home to so-and-so mobile cellular network"

And if we are really lucky maybe they will paint it the colour of the Jacarandas ??

"It's South Africa 1990. Two major events are about to happen. The release of Nelson Mandela and, more importantly, it's Spud Milton's first year at an lite boys' boarding school. Surrounded by boys with nicknames like Gecko, Rambo, Rain Man and Mad Dog, Spud has his hands full trying to adapt to his new home. Along the way, he takes his first tentative steps to manhood, armed with only his wits and his diary. He takes us from illegal night swimming to the red-hot furnace of the cricket pitch and also invites us into the mind of a boy struggling to come to terms with a strange new world, a boy whose eyes are being opened to love, friendship and complete insanity." Admission: $3.00 [free to film members]
MEYERBEER: L'AFRICAINE
Friday 24 June in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m. - with supper interval.

Maltin's Movie Guide comments that "this absorbing historical drama is extremely well acted", and a further recommendation is that the script is by Peter Morgan who was also responsible for The Queen. It will be followed in July by two films on Elizabeth I starring Cate Blanchett. Admission: $3.00 [free to film members]

First, I must point out that Duly and Company are not celebrating 100 years in Zimbabwe in 2011. They did that in 1995!! They opened in Bulawayo in 1895 and in Harare in 1901. What they are celebrating in 2011 is 100 years with the Ford Motor Company. I may be wrong here but I think there are only something like four motor dealers in the World who have been associated with the Ford Motor Company for over 100 years.
Part of the celebrations will be a planned rally comprising vintage and classic cars from Bulawayo and from Harare to Great Zimbabwe and return. It will involve the Vintage & Classic Club of Matabeleland from Bulawayo and the Vintage Car Club of Zimbabwe from Harare. The oldest car on the run will be a 1912 Model T Ford from Harare and then a 1914 Model T Ford from Bulawayo. A total of 15 Vintage Fords will be taking part (pre 1932) and then there will be Classic cars. The total number of entries expected should be 44 vehicles.
It is planned for the middle of August this year, and the vehicles will leave from Dulys Bulawayo and Dulys Harare at 7.30 am with much fanfare and hopefully arrive sometime that afternoon at Great Zimbabwe amidst even greater fanfare!
I will let you know more details of this rally nearer the time. A glossy A4 full colour magazine is being produced to commemorate the rally, which will make a wonderful keepsake. The cost of advertising in this magazine is minimal. Anybody who would like the honour of having an advert in this magazine, please feel free to write to blouth@bulawayo.halsteds.co.zw for further details.
For those who don't know, Charles Duly cycled, yes, cycled from Johannesburg to Bulawayo via Great Zimbabwe in 1894. He married Edith (who the home is named after) and then brought the very first motor car to Zimbabwe in 1902 (to Bulawayo of course). It was a French Gladiator, and caused incredible excitement in the fast developing Country. He was also responsible for bringing the first Ford to Bulawayo (and Zimbabwe) in 1911.
Dulys are planning several events to celebrate this great year; in addition, many of the vintage Fords on this rally will be displayed in Dulys showrooms in Bulawayo and Harare.

Treating burns.
Egg white
One hopes never to be needing it, but just in case:...
A simple but effective way to treat burns with the help of egg white. This method is used in the training of firemen.
When sustaining a burn, regardless the degree, the first aid is always placing the injured part under running cold water till the heat subsides. And next spread the egg white over the injury.
Someone burned a large part of her hand with boiling water. Despite the pain she held her hand under running water, then took two eggs, parted the yolk from the egg white and slightly beat the egg white and put her hand in it. Her hand was so badly burned that the egg white dried and formed a white film. Later she heard that the egg is a natural collagen.
And during the next hour layer upon layer, she administered a white layer on her hand. That afternoon she didn't feel any more pain and the next day there hardly was a red mark to see. She thought she would have an awful scar but to her astonishment after ten days there was no sign of the burn, the skin had it's normal colour again! The burned area had been totally regenerated thanks to the collagen, in reality a placenta full of vitamins. This advice can be useful for everyone. Circulate it!
