1) Editorial


If you need a lift after that awful awful heat, I have a few suggestions.

Now that we have had a spot of rain, go and visit a garden nursery, there is such a buzz there right now.

Its amazing what a spot of rain can do to people who love gardens. Gardening people are generally nice people so while away a few minutes in a green cool place, where daisy heads bob, and the day-lilies smile at you cheerily. Garden lovers are seldom negative and always have nice things to say. There are a variety of nurseries in Bulawayo - Tropica, Instant Flowers, Ma Beares, Granite Valley, Green Gardens, and of course Wrights.

Or visit a pet shop if you really need a lift !

There is a delightful pet shop in 15th Avenue and George Silundika. I popped in today to buy food for our lone surviving ancient little black cat, and I spent a while communing with the delightful plethora of creatures therein.

There were some beautiful pure white homing pigeons, roaming free in the garden, quite tame and a delight to watch as they busied themselves with whatever pigeons are wont to do. The pet shop also has lovebirds, cockatiels, parrots, and budgies, singing and chattering away merrily.

Snakes too, safely behind glass if that is what turns you on, and there are often bunnies, mice, guinea pigs and the like on sale in a most appealing and tasteful environment. Pet lovers too are nice people and you meet all sorts of divine folk there who love their pets and love life generally.

Another well worthwhile "pick me up" is a trip down Coghlan Avenue, there the Flamboyants are particularly spectacular this year. I have posted some on my website and they are indeed breathtaking. Another tree, (not indigenous) is the Cape Chestnut which is flowering at the moment, my oh my, these are indeed a sight for sore eyes. There are not too many around but the one in the garden next door to us is awesome.

My beautiful roses sadly did not survive the heat though, they were literally burnt brown by the sun, but as I tore into the garden to prune, I uncovered a tiny nest full of Bulbuls, mouths wide open in hunger, eyes wide open in fright. Mamma and Pappa BulBul were furious and dived at me screeching in rage.

Welcome home said the agapanthusas they tossed their blue and white heads merrily shaking off the raindrops.

MORNING MIRROR NOW HAS A

"CHRISTMAS SHOPPING" SECTION

COLUMN NUMBER 27a)

ZIMBABWEANS PLEASE JOIN THE ZIMBABWE DISAPORA VOTE CAMPAIGN

It is high time the Zimbabwe Diaspora arose and declared that enough is enough. The diaspora has been the lifeline of the country for many years through remittances, it is about time that the diaspora had a say in how the country is governed. Many of us have stood aside and waited for sanity to prevail, but that hope has proved an illusive fallacy. Einstein once defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. If the Zimbabwe diaspora does not stand up to be counted, then it has itself to blame for the continued decay of its homeland. One of the initiatives that the Zimbabwe Diaspora Vote Campaign is undertaking is a petition which when completed will be presented to the Zimbabwean Parliament, to the Constitutional COPAC, theUnited Nations, SADC, AU and EU. Do you bit.

To sign the petition Go Here or to www.gopetition.com/petitions/zimbabwe-diaspora-vote-now-support-the-zdvc.html

Thursday 10 November at 7.00 p.m. and Friday 11 November
in the Robert Sibson Hall: Wagner turned aside from The Ring and told his publisher that he had decided to cheer himself up with 'something lighter' that would be finished in a year.The result was The Mastersingers which in fact took him six years and remained his only mature comedy.It will be shown over two nights and preceded by a BBC documentary narrated by Kenneth Branagh on the composer's life. The opera itself comes in a traditional Met production conducted by James Levine and with as fine a cast as could be assembled including Karita Mattila as Eva, James Morris as Hans Sachs, Ben Heppner as Walther and Sir Thomas Allen as Beckmesser. Act I will be preceded by a BBC documentary on Wagner on Thursday.Acts II & III will follow with the usual supper interval on Friday. Admission: $3.00 (covers both evenings)[free to Red Carpet members]

Tuesday 15 November at 7.00 p.m. in the Robert Sibson Hall

THE THREE MUSKETEERS
Thursday 17 November in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
:It's all for one and one for all as the Musketeers - D'Artagnan (Michael York), Athos (Oliver Reed), Aramis (Richard Chamberlain) and Porthos (Frank Finlay) - band together to defeat the machinations of Cardinal Richlieu (Charlton Heston) and Milady de Winter (Faye Dunaway).Raquel Welsh, Geraldine Chaplin, Spike Milligan, Christopher Lee and Simon Ward are among the other well-known names in the all-star line-up."Delightful tongue-in-cheek version of Dumas classic, mixing swashbuckling adventure and romance with broad slapstick.One of Raquel Welch's finest hours" - Maltin's Film Guide. Admission: $3.00[free to Film Subscribers]

THE FOUR MUSKETEERS
Thursday 24 November in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
The Musketeers' adventures continue in the "second half of Director Richard Lester's irreverent but amusing approach to Dumas with less emphasis on slapstick this time round and a surprisingly dark conclusion.Rich cast in top form" - Maltin again! Admission: $3.00[free to Film Subscribers]

GOUNOD: FAUST
Friday 25 November in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
- with supper interval. This ever-popular opera comes in a Royal Opera House production conducted by Antonio Pappano with the husband and wife team of Angela Gheorghiu and Roberto Alagna as Marguerite and Faust, and Bryn Terfel as Mephistopheles. 'Terfel sings with panache and Gheorghiu... is capable of encompassing both the lyricism of the love scenes and the horror of her subsequent descent into insanity. The real revelation, however, is Alagna, who gives the performance of a lifetime..." - The Guardian. Admission: $3.00[free to Red Carpet members]

MTHOMBOTHEMBA (m-tom-be-tom-ma) PRIMARY SCHOOL

This school, situated 26km out on the Bulawayo / Hope Fountain Road caters for approximately 350 children of which 82% are orphans.

Recently connected to ZESA, the school is appealing for two or three computers - one for the office and others for the classroom so that the children can discover the wonder world of the computer.

On the 23rd November, the school will be holding a Cultural Day Celebration and assistance in way of food, dress, dance display etc would be most gratefully accepted in order to make this day a spectacular event. Your assistance in anyway, will enrich the lives of these marginalised children and will be very much appreciated

Dear Friends

This is a special request from our Appropriate Paper-Based Technology (APT) Empowerment Project - for those who don't know about this I can summarize it as "a group of unemployed people (7 people) working together to transform used cardboard into furniture and useful household objects".

This empowerment group have recently undergone 2-3 weeks of training on the process of APT and are now starting out to make some of their products which include small chairs/stools for children and waste paper baskets.Their next lot of products will be small coffee tables and side tables.The team have asked me to email and ask if people can start collecting cereal boxes for them.Some of the other items they are in need of will be listed at the bottom of this email and if you feel that God would have you support a project which sees people working to help themselves (and in turn helping others) - this is the project for you !

If you would like to see how it all happens, please feel free to contact me and we can arrange a visit for you to their "production rooms".The team would be more than willing to explain and show the process to you, I can assure you this is very interesting.If you would like to make a contribution towards this project in cash or kind, we would graciously receive this for them and pass it onto them.Every little bit counts and you can be assured that this will be accurately accounted for by the group overseer.
It has been exciting to see this project take off and wonderful to see the team dedicated to supporting themselves through this small business venture. We would be most grateful for your support for them and would encourage you to share this email with others who would be willing to assist or support them too.
Thank you and may God continue to shower his blessings upon you all for your support and friendship.

The AGM of the Bulawayo Publicity Association held on the 20th October at the Holiday Inn, was a great success with many people commenting afterwards on how interesting and informative they had found it. The Chairman, Mr Gavin Stephens, in his additional remarks to the Annual Report, stated that the dismal state of the critical government-owned companies, citing Air Zimbabwe and the National Railways of Zimbabwe, were the cause of the region's demise. However, he said that the community as a whole also had a role to play in sprucing up Bulawayo and that the rehabilitation of the Khumalo Hockey Stadium was an example of what could be done when people came together with a common vision. He queried whether Bulawayo people had a vision and a plan to take the city forward?

In reply to the aforementioned, the guest speaker Minister of State Enterprises and Parastatals, the Honorable Gorden Moyo said that Government had resolved to partially privatise and restructure Air Zimbabwe as well as the National Railways of Zimbabwe.

Despite the economic situation a number of new businesses have opened in Bulawayo and become members of the Association and several members who have been 'on hold' for a year or so have now been able to rejoin. LED TOURS AND TRAVEL, well established in Harare has opened a branch in Bulawayo at 48a R Mugabe Way, tel 60399 and offers a range of services including car and bus rentals, transfers and tours. ZECS TOURS in S Parirenyatwa/12th Ave also offers transfers to the airport and tourist attractions such as Khami Ruins and Chipangali Animal Orphanage. GOSAME TOURS whose head office is at 6 Livingstone Road, Suburbs, 67852, have a branch at Victoria Falls that handles all activities taking place there and offers transport from Bulawayo to the Falls.Bookings can be made in Bulawayo.

CENTRUST TRAVELhas recently moved from 3rd Avenue/Fort Street to the Palace Hotel in J Moyo Street/11th Avenue, which makes it more convenient for clients.PARACOR, which handles company registrations and bookkeeping services, owned by Ms Angela Dick, has now moved to Silver Oaks in J Tongogara St and 14th Ave, tel 68259.

The 1st Cricket test in Zimbabwe between Zimbabwe and New Zealand will be played in Bulawayo from the 1st to the 5th November. Tickets are $3 or$5 for grandstand seats. As you no doubt know, the Zimbabwe Cricket Team played magnificently against the New Zealand Team in the ODI match on Tuesday. The BPA handed out tourist brochures as well as information on restaurants and art and craft outlets to the cricketers and media. The Manager of the New Zealand team informed Mrs Bell that they were enjoying their stay in Bulawayo and having a good time, even though most of their free time was spent at practice.

THE ALLIANCE FRANCAISE is bringing a French juggler to perform at the Bulawayo Theatre on Saturday 12th November. Tickets are $7 each. The Junior Club production 'Gotta Let Go' will be held on the 18th and 19th November with a Matinee on the 19th. The Alliance Francaise is also promoting a concert given by an unusual combination of a clarinet and accordion at the Robert Sibson Hall on Monday 7 November starting at 7:30pm. This will be a very nostalgic evening for those of you who have been to Paris.

A Guide to Khami Ruins, Nalatale and Dhlo Dhlo written by Rob Burrett and Paul Hubbard has recently been published and is available at the Natural History Museum. A good Christmas present for the history/heritage buff.

BULAWAYO MARTIAL ARTS ACADEMY
54 OLD GWANDA RD FOURWINDS. 09 246887, 0774096081

It has been a great first half year for us at BMAA. JUDO, It was a honour earlier this year, to be asked by the national team coaches; Debbie Jeans and Pat Warren, to assist in the teams preparation prior to the ALL AFRICA GAMES. It was also the launching of a new era in Zimbabwean Judo. Thanks to help from Debbie and Pat, we have now established a Matabeleland Judo Team, and with Dusty Smith as our captain, we are all looking forward to December when we will travel to Harare, where the two teams will meet, fight and train together for the first time. My personal short term goal is to put a Matabeleland player on the national squad. Currently the team covers five weight categories, and we are looking to cover the others, so anyone who has ever done Judo or would like to learn is more than welcome at the Academy.

BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU, (BJJ) With a Judo fight team solidly in place, we are now lookingto it as a breeding ground for the first; Zimbabwean, Brazilian jiu-jitsu team, to compete in South Africa next year. Please do not get the local forms of Jiu-jitsu mixed up with BJJ, this is an internationally recognised fighting sport and at this time can only be taught in the correct manner at BMAA.

BOXING, The Thursday Boxing is going from strength to strength, and we are currently waiting to hear from Patrick, the director of Zimbabwean Armature Boxing to see if we can offer anything to that particularly strong national team.
WOMANS SELF DEFENCE With one rolling class on a Saturday and eight private classes, this has become one of our more popular sessions. with a view to working against three types of predator, the ladies learn to protect themselves using a system of techniques tried and tested around the world. From an instructor who has worked closely with both the Metropolitan Police (UK) and the Royal Ulster Constabulary and their 'Anti rape crisis' programs. LADIES; BE PREPARED, DONT BE THE VICTIM
KRAV MAGA Another very popular lesson, using this practical problem solving system to go from; 'Standing still, too Extreme violence', this is a great way to stay fit and confident. This is another exclusive to BMAA as we have the only official instructor in the county.

WARM HEART UGLY FACE

Do you remember queuing in the bank every day to draw your allowance that would buy half a loaf of bread ? Do you remember when our husbands would go off and "play golf" on Friday lunchtime just in case the police came to throw them into the cells for the weekend ? Do you remember staring at rows and rows of empty shelves and wondering what you were going to feed the family ?

What short memories we all have .....

Well thankfully Jerome Gardner has documented those crazy days and now his book " Warm Heart Ugly Face" is available. The story of a traumatic decade of hyperinflation and its debilitating consequences for the people of Zimbabwe.
People wishing to buy the book can either e-mail gardnerj@yoafrica.com or phone Bulawayo 75848 In Harare the contact details are Zfn, Cecil House, 2 Central Ave [cnr Second, opp NSSA, in front of Datvest] Telephone 0733016576 and speak to Fadzai Mhenyu

Is there anyone who is able to import a pedal boat (sometimes also known as a paddle boat) from the USA for me?Ideally, I'm looking for the Sun Slider model, make by KL Industries and easily found to view on the KL Industries web page.

Alternatively, is there anyone who has a pedal boat in really good working condition for sale?

Alternatively again, is there any ingenious manufacturer in zimbabwe who could perhaps make me a small, light, man uvrable pedal-powered craft that would be comfortable for two people plus cameras, binos, picnic etc?

If you think you can help, please phone 0774 025 969 for more details.
