1) Editorial

The Life of Riley

Living in Zimbabwe definitely has its trials and tribulations, most of them due to power( or the lack thereof) and spectacles (or the lack thereof).

HeeHoo and I spent the weekend at Troutbeck Inn amongst 140 friends from the teaching fraternity. They are stoic those academics, they determine every year the future of the schooling system, and little or nothing ever gets them down !!

ZESA did its best though to get us all down, as it d s every year !!

The power cuts were horrendous, the Troutbeck Inn generator struggled valiantly to feed, bathe, shower and refresh 140 worthy delegates who are probably shaping the futures of many ZESA children !!

The hotel staff however were amazing, nothing was too much for the noble and academic guests. The meals were good, not an easy task to serve 420 hot meals every day without getz!!

Wet hair was the order of the day for the girls, and a few stubbled chins emerged. Showers were tepid affairs to say the least and early morning tea was well nigh impossible as the generator definitely did not like kettles or hairdryers !!

Now there we were, at one of Zimbabwe's prime tourist resorts, surely to goodness ZESA could make a proverbial plan!!! Not for us, we Zimbabweans have been brow beaten, subjugated and unclean for so long we are inured of all sense and sensibility.... but for the tourists, surely a plan could be made to provide the basic necessities to the tourists who bring a great deal of money into the country?

The gala dinner at the end of the conference was a miraculous feat of endurance for the long suffering hotel staff.

A delicious three course meal served with fine wines, adequate lighting, ice cold drinks, and 140 beautifully turned out guests, having been without power for 50 hours out of a possible 96, was no mean feat !!

Locals can cope with power cuts, but what out the tourists? ZESA should give special dispensation to the tourist attractions as we try our hardest to revive our country's economy.

ARE YOU LISTENING ZESA ???

The Dance Academy Proudly Presents FantaSea
From the depths of Neptune's ocean lair,
Fantasy is born, as a shimmering pair
Of delicate bubbles begin to rise
From this murky world to the azure skies.

Up past jelly fish, all aglow.
Friendly nemos in a colourful show.
With ocean spirits to guide them through,
A maze of coral, and seaweed too.

As fearsome sharks steal silently by,
Oyster shells close, with a whispered sigh.
The haunting song of the Orca whale
Calls them upward, to continue their tale.

On the crests of waves our bubbles glimpse
Mermaids, pirates and sailors' ships.
The lighthouse shines its comforting beam
And now we begin this ocean dream ...

So dive on down, seaward bound,
Motion in the ocean is all around!

A show not to be missed.
Tickets now on sale at the Bulawayo Theatre

3) Roses And Raspberries
Roses - bunches and bunches of them - to Enid and Lesley for their courage and patience in taking us on and giving us the time of our lives. Thank you so much. Many thanks, too, to Sue, always in the background quietly working away, the wonderful make up ladies who not only made us look gorgeous but 10 years younger, to the other members of the cast and the backstage crew for their support, encouragement and the camaraderie behind the scenes - it was great to meet you all and hope you enjoyed the experience as much as we did. And lastly, thanks to the ever generous Bulawayo public, those who turned out to watch us and all the sponsors and donors.

Raspberries - boxes of them - to those who didn't come to the show. You missed out on a fun, sparkling, care free evening. We're sure that Bulawayo Help Network would be delighted to receipt your small donation to their very worthy cause. Don't forget, there may just come a time when you, too, will be in need of their emergency medical assistance. The Calendar Girls

Could we please remind the public that the rainy season is approaching, and the frog season is starting, some strange things are happening, two species of toads are already singing, they are a bit early, and I have had to save a number of Giant Bull Frogs, who normally wait until l the first thunder storms before they start their season. If it is global warming, then we must do everything to help them, and avoid them going extinct. I would particularly ask the public to avoid the giant bull frogs on Cecil Avenue extension between the NUST campus, and the Harry Allan Golf Club, this appears to be a favourite breeding area, and many are killed on the road whilst crossing from one side to the other. If any person would want me to see frogs which they find, I can be contacted on Byo 258147, or email robron@yoafrica.com all times. I am also collecting DNA from animals that have been "Road Killed". As this data is sent to America for analysis. Thank you, and Morning Mirror, once again for you help.
Best regards,
Rob Hopkins.



OPEN LETTER TO ALL MASCA MEMBERS
I am sure that most, if not all of you, have seen the recent letter from MASCA.
In the letter, MASCA simply TELL us, the Members that we WILL pay our subs in cash at one of their two banks in future. They will NOT be accepting any cash at their offices. This was NOT discussed with the MASCA Members at all. This letter smacks of 'Big Brother' tactics. I urge all MASCA Members to each write a letter to MASCA, quoting your Name and MASCA Membership Number and state that you are not prepared to stand in lengthy bank queues the first seven days of every month to accommodate MASCA. Mr Sibanda of MASCA Bulawayo Office could not tell my husband what the 'cons' were, that are mentioned in MASCA'S letter. Nor did he state that there were any robberies at MASCA.
IF, there are problems within MASCA Offices, accounting for cash correctly, or cash going missing, the solution is simple. FIRE THE STAFF MEMBER/MEMBERS involved. Don't keep them on the payroll and insist MASCA will not handle cash. It is the MASCA Members whose subs pay those salaries and we demand efficient staff.
If MASCA refuses to accept our cash, are they now going to re-trench one or more of the cashiers as they no longer need to spend time counting/ banking cash every month?
What about the many elderly pensioners who now have to stand in bank queues every month to pay in their cash to suit MASCA. There are security companies that will collect and bank MASCA's cash for them. There is already a security guard at MASCA'S OFFICES. Surely it is part of his job to see that there are no 'hangers on' lurking around outside MASCA Offices.
I have occasion to visit MASCA OFFICES around 4 times a month. I go on random days and I never see anyone waiting to pay subs in the Cashier's office.
The machines to check for fake notes are relatively inexpensive to purchase. If you are offering a service to the public you are expected to have change. Anywhere else one g s, the businesses are able to supply change. It d sn't take a rocket scientist to work out your daily change needs. I, for one, am NOT prepared to take time off work to stand in lengthy queues. I am happy to go to the MASCA Office every month and pay by CHEQUE.
Come on MASCA Members. Stand up and be counted. Write your objection letters to MASCA and hand them in immediately. It's the subs from the MASCA members that keep MASCA in business!

ANNE TOURLE
