GUNS N ROSES

Valentines Day dawns and where are the red roses ?

When the Little Girls were at home, Valentine s Day was a joyous occasion - Pappa Bear AKA HeeHoo would always arrange for three bouquets of red roses to be delivered to the house ! A big bouquet for Mamma Bear, a medium size bouquet for Josie Bear and a Little Bouquet for Baby Bear !! But since the girlies left home, there are no roses arriving at the door......

There were cards too, written in clandestine handwriting "from a Secret Admirer !!" And there were chocolate hearts scattered around in hidden places.....

The arrival home from school on Valentine s Day was a momentous occasion, blushing, giggling, girlies carrying red roses wrapped in cellophane, sometimes one, sometimes two !! They had no idea that most of these were really often from Mom and Dad !!

I did not envy the teachers on Valentine s Day - how does one even keep a modicum of decorum and "book larning" when the florist vans, loaded to the brim, arrived non stop at the school gate ? Such girlish joy, such excitement, such innocence, how I miss those halcyon days.

Valentines Day is not quite so beguiling nowadays sadly, getting roses to all parts of the world for our daughters is a task in itself but it is a tradition that must take place come hell or high water.

This Valentine s Day was more than usually daunting as Baby Bear spent that week in Mogadishu !
As I laboriously checked on the internet for florists in Mogadishu this is what I found...
"WARNING: Mogadishu is regarded as the most lawless and dangerous city on Earth and is currently experiencing a major food and refugee crisis. It is highly dangerous for leisure or tourism. If you are planning a visit for international aid work, etc, you will need expert advice and planning.
When being escorted by armed security, it is best to be in an armored car. Infantry are highly likely to get engaged in street battles, and an armored vehicle can provide far better protection against most threats. A bullet proof vest is a must-have in Mogadishu."
Hmmmmmmm does a mother really need to read that sort of thing ?
And florists ? Heck no, there were grenade shops, AK 47 Shops, but nary a florist to be found !! I did a detailed study of Interflora deliveries and found that one can send flowers to every city in the world but not to Mogadishu !!
What would the address be I wondered hopelessly ? Ruined building number 432, Main Road ? Al Shabbab, Mogadishu ?
How could that child distress her poor mother so? When she was in Afghanistan I could have solved the problem and sent her some red poppies from the opium fields I suppose ?
But red roses in Mogadishu ?
Poor HeeHooMustFish suggested a bouquet of grenades and rifles wrapped in a flack jacket!! And so we decided mutually instead that we will send her the song entitled "Sweet Child of Mine" sung by the band Guns N Roses.......

BULAWAYO MARTIAL ARTS ACADEMY

*LOOK OUT FOR OUR NEW FITNESS CENTRE OPENING AT THE END OF FEBRUARY.*

WEEKLY PROGRAM Fight specific conditioning, Mon, Wed, Fri, 1000 till 1100 and 1630 till 1730

MARTIAL ARTS PROGRAM
MON, Brazilian jiu-jitsu 1730 WED, Judo 1730 THURS, Boxing 1700 FRI, Krav Maga 1730 SAT, Boxing/kick boxing 1000 SAT, Judo 1100 SAT, Brazilian jiu-jitsu 1200 SUN, Fight team training (closed session)
BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU
The BMAA currently has the only recognized BJJ club and fight team in the country, that said, we're looking forward to a new set in Harare that should change that. In the meantime however we're enjoying good relations with other recognized clubs abroad and look forward to fighting and grading our students with them this coming year.
JUDO
first Saturday of every month, come and be trained by the BMAA judo fight team for free* What a fantastic start to the year for our judo team. At the end of last year, on our behalf, Debbi Jeans (your national Judo coach) proposed BMAA for a full set of competition Judo mats to be supplied by JAZ (The Judo Association of Zimbabwe), her proposal was a success. Because of this BMAA can now triple the amount of Judokas (fighters) on the mat at any one time, and hope to do so this year. Under our team captain Dusty Smith, our judo fight team will head off to Harare this month to meet the teams there and attend the Judo Association of Zimbabwe's AGM, then fight off with the other clubs for national ranking points. This is the first time the provinces have come together like this for as long as anyone can remember. A true sign of sporting progress. We would like to thank Debbi Jeans, Pat Warren and all those at JAZ for their unconditional support, and we hope to provide great fighters for Debbi and Pat to work with to create one of the best Judo teams in Africa. The passion and leadership exists at JAZ to achieve this.
BOXING
The Thursday boxing session, is slowly going from strength to strength, the new talent in the room is showing lots of heart and evolving fast and I'm hoping for some good technical results in Februarys end of month sparring. The guys and girls have worked hard on the their footwork this year and because of this are getting off good combinations and managing their energy levels well.
KRAV MAGA
Naught, to extreme violence in the blink of an eye* We replaced the Friday MMA class with the Krav Maga, purely because those who did attend the MMA, didn't really want to put the work in and the class became fickle. (I'll say it again for the wannabe, There are no short cuts in fighting.) The Krav Maga is now a full class with a waiting list and enjoyed by all that attend. That said, we have a window for a second class, please ring for details.
JUNIORS, KIDS. NIPPERS, LIGHTEES,
Parents! We are currently looking to re-establish junior classes (ages 5 to 15) for both boxing and Judo, but all too often they clash with school events. If you're interested in your child learning one of these great martial arts, please contact us so we can place a set lesson that fits around these schedules. As a father of three, I have paid out loads in the past, in lessons and gear, only to find out two weeks later they don't want to do it anymore, don't panic, all junior lessons are free for the first two months and gear provided, if after that time they enjoy it enough to ask you if they can come back, you can take out one of our junior memberships.
THANK YOU
We would also like to thank, 'Tribal Dragon Tattoo studio' for sponsoring the fight teams $400 for fuel to go to Harare and fight. LOOK OUT FOR OUR NEW FITNESS CENTRE OPENING AT THE END OF FEBRUARY

Freshness is a Bulawayo Based Afrocoustic Band which consists of 4 members. Chikwata.263 is the new Mbira-punk sensation on the Zimbabwean music scene. Chikwata 263 have blended the traditional mbira with the rock punk flare that is popular in western music circles to create a sound that took the unsuspecting crowd by surprise. Mbira is the backbone of their sound, but its spiced up by two distorted punkrock guitars, a heavy bass and thunderous drums. They are known to be fireworks live and any audience goes crazy dancing to their great songs. This event is proudly presented in collaboration with the Rainbow Cinemas.

PAB AND THE ACADEMY

THE SONG OF THE CARNIVORES - THE LION
Thursday 16 February in the Robert Sibson Hall at 5.15 p.m. "The Song of the Carnivores" is a major commission for the Bulawayo Music Festival and as part of the preparations for this, the Alliance Fran aise and Academy are sponsoring a series of talks on the five large carnivores of Zimbabwe - cheetah, leopard, lion, hyena and wild dog - featured in the work. The talks will take place on the third Thursday of each month at 5.15 and be over in time to allow you to have a bite to eat before further attractions! The second talk will be given by Brent Staplekamp and is called "Lion - Dispelling the myth that trophy hunting is bad for lion conservation". Admission: Free

FROZEN PLANET & DOWNTON ABBEY : SERIES 2
Thursdays 16 & 23 February & 3, 10 & 17 March in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m. Two outstanding very recent series will be shown in tandem in February and March, Frozen Planet and Downton Abbey. The former will begin at 7.00 and the latter at 8.10 after a short interval if there are those who don t want to see one or the other! "Frozen Planet" comes from the BBC and is narrated by David Attenborough: "The Arctic and Antarctic remain the greatest wildernesses on Earth. The scale and beauty of the scenery and the sheer power of the elements - the weather, the ocean and the ice - is unmatched anywhere else on our planet. Yet these harsh environments are teeming with life, home to iconic animals from polar bear to Adelie penguins and from killer whales to the wandering albatross. Using the latest camera technology to film on land, from the air, under water and blow the Arctic ice cap, Frozen Planet follows their fascinating lives throughout the seasons as they struggle to survive. With spectacular polar landscapes and amazing animal behaviour, often filmed for the first time, it captures the drama of an extreme natural world."
"Downton Abbey" needs little introduction. The second series includes all the regular cast and begins in 1916 when we see the effects of the First World War on the Crawley family and the servants who work for them. Their intertwined lives are rendered more complicated by wartime and its impact on the great house itself. And when the storms of war have finally cleared, will the way of life known by all the inhabitants of Downton have changed for ever? Admission: $3.00 [free to film members]

PAB AGM followed by VERDI: UN BALLO IN MASCHERA
Friday 17 February in Room 25 at 6.00 p.m. & the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m. The PAB AGM will be followed by Luciano Pavarotti stars in what he always said was his favourite part, the Swedish King Gustavus III in a lavish and spectacular Metropolitan Opera staging of Verdi's darkly dramatic opera. His 'compelling portrayal is beautifully and intensely sung' (Gramophone) whilst Aprile Mlilo as Amelia, the woman he loves, 'all but stops the show in its tracks - ravishing tone and a top of the voice flecked with gold...' (International Record Review). Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

SIR FREDERICK ASHTON TRIPLE BILL
Friday 24 February in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
A selection of works created by Sir Frederick Ashton displays some of his most inventive and diverse choreography performed by recent and current stars of the Royal Ballet, including Darcey Bussell, Tamara Rojo, Leanne Benjamin and Carlos Acosta. "Les Patineurs" evokes an Edwardian skating party with all its youthful charm and humour, in contrast to "Sc nes de ballet", in which sharp geometric shapes and the music of Stravinsky combine to create Ashton s most modernistic work. "Divertissements" is a collection of six balletic miniatures featuring some of his most beautiful and lyrical choreography,created during a career that spanned seven decades. Supper available during the interval Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

MY GRANDSON TRAVELED BACK FOR BULAWAYO TO VARSITY TODAY (FRIDAY) - THE POLICE ALONG THE BEITBRIDGE ROAD ARE NOW LURKING BY THE RAILWAY CROSSINGS, AND STOPPED MY GRANDSON ANF FINED HIM U.S$70 FOR CROSSING THE ROAD TO AVOID THE RUMBLE STRIPS. I THINK WE ALL DO THIS, PROVIDED THE ROAD IS CLEAR AHEAD, BUT I THINK WE SHOULD WARN THE PUBLIC THAT THIS IS JUST ONE FURTHER THING TO WATCH OUT FOR, AND DENY THE POLICE THESE ILL GOTTEN GAINS - THE FINE OF $70 SEEMS EXCESSIVE AND GOODNESS KNOWS WHAT THEY WOULD FINE THE BIG TRUCKS.

HAVING SAID THAT IT SEEMS THE POLICE HAVE HAD A FIELD DAY IN THE INDUSTRIAL SITES THIS WEEK, STOPPING AND FINING DELIVERY DRIVERS WHO ARE CARRYING GOODS IN BAKKIES - THEY ARE INSISTING THEY HAVE TO HAVE A HEAVY DUTY LICENSE IF THEY ARE DOING DELIVERIES/COLLECTIONS REGARDLESS OF THE FACT IT IS JUST A BAKKIE! ADDITIONALLY THEY ARE ADDING A FURTHER FINE IF THEY DO NOT HAVE A CERTIFICATE FOR DEFENSIVE DRIVING.
MEANWHILE IT HAS EMERGED THAT A POLICE OFFICER AT THE DRILL HALL HAS LET IT SLIP THAT THE REASON FOR THE SUDDEN AND ONGOING PURGE IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THE POLICE COFFERS ARE EMPTY AND THEY HAVE TO BRING IN LARGE FUNDING IF THEY ARE GOING TO GET PAID OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.
ONCE AGAIN THE POOR PUBLIC ARE BEEN TARGETED TO PAY FOR THE OVERSIZED AND BLOATED POLICE FORCE, AND POOR GOVERNMENT POLICY AND PLANNING!
PITY THE GENERAL POLICE ARE NOT EQUALLY ACTIVE WITH UNBIASED AND NON POLITICAL POLICING WORK.I WOULD BE INTERESTED TO KNOW HOW MANY POLICE WE HAVE PER CAPITA COMPARED TO MOST CIVILIZED COUNTRIES - ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU SEE THEM ALL LOUNGING AROUND THE DRILL HALL WITH NOTHING TO DO.

7) Guardian Angels, Donations and Wish Lists

To All My Friends and Family,

We desperately need your help.

Kathey and I are trying to help a school The Success Academy Zimbabwe out in Hatcliffe, I have been there and I cannot describe to you the heart ache that we felt at what we see. There are over 800 kids in a house divided into 7 or 8 rooms; there is no plaster and no glass in the windows, no desks, no chairs and no floor.
I am sure you will all agree that we as a people don't like to help someone that does not try to help themselves, well let me tell you about Laytone. The Headmaster of this school is a man by the name of Laytone Marisa, he works in Harare town and uses his own salary to substitute what little school fees he gets to pay salaries for the teachers, who work tirelessly never knowing when they are going to get paid. Laytone works around the clock trying to source text books, money, furniture, chalk etc for the school and for the teachers.
Over 500 of these children are orphans, their neighbours feed and clothe them, but most are unable to pay the little bit of school fees needed for them to go to school. Who wants to turn a child away from learning?
The school fees are $40 per child per term, in retrospect, this is nothing, we can spend $40 on airtime in a month without even blinking an eye.
All we ask is that you sponsor a child's school fees for the year of 2012 or for a term. We have a list of children and you can choose which ones you would like to sponsor.
Please contact Kathey Bartlett on 0777 432075 or Casey Gould on 0773 370130 for any information or to sponsor a child.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN - MANAGING DIRECTORS AND MARKETING MANAGERS

This letter serves to mention the following:
to advise you of what Crime Awareness Bulawayo does for the community and individuals
to make companies, groups and individuals aware of our existence and
to ask for your assistance in any form of a donation towards this organization - be it a once off a year or monthly support - to receive the updates I charge US$30 (ZAR 240) for 10 copies in the year emailed directly to you each month.

Originally starting as the Anti Hijack Trust formed in Harare by Mary van Heerden and Tracey Conway-Burns, after both suffering from separate attacks on their person. Mary, being one of the first to be in the spate of the 1998 hijackings, and Tracey, being attacked in her aunt's car after the tyre was slashed at the Harare Airport and robbed of everything in the vehicle, luggage, 3 women's handbags and keys. Both of us came together after realizing there was a need for victims to be assisted not only emotionally but also how to handle police and court procedures, and to warn the public of what was taking place. We went on radio, television and even to the point of counseling people over email in South Africa!
Tracey Conway-Burns (that's me), returned to Bulawayo in 2002 starting up an office here and after a couple of years changed the name to Crime Awareness Bulawayo, as many people hesitated to contact me after they were attacked, thinking that I only dealt with victims of hijackings. Wrong, I deal with any victim who has had different types of crime done to them personally. So far I have dealt with over 300 victims and 5 murders in Bulawayo - counseling the families, children and relatives overseas!
For the past 10 years I have done monthly email updates and given many talks to various groups, companies and clubs, which inform the following:
latest modus operandi of criminals,
how to avoid being hijacked and what to do if hijacked,
how to make your home, office and school areas secure and safe
how to handle being attacked in your home and how to make sure you come out alive
Labour Laws for domestic workers
Traffic laws and fines
Firearm Laws

Many people have realized that only when a horrific incident of an attack or hijacking takes place on them personally, do they acknowledge how they need help - thinking to themselves before hand 'it will never happen to me' or 'it only happens to others' - and won't support this worthwhile organization. When they need my help with counseling, I do not charge the victims a cent (or a dollar in these times), that would be like adding insult to injury!
It is my passion that has kept this organization going for so long, but we are in desperate need of finances - as much as I run it from my home, I still have to pay all the ZIMRA subs each year and find that I am not bringing in enough money through Crime Awareness Bulawayo to warrant a company, as much as I would like to turn this into a trust, this has proved very difficult in the past. I find in these tough times that a salary is warranted as I need to put myself onto a medical aid scheme and generally survive and keep the organization going. Some companies have assisted with fuel, internet and printer cartridges of which I am immensely grateful for their continual help.
I put myself through a lighting course (had known a lot about incandescent and fluorescent lighting before), but it not only helped me for stage, but also to ensure how best to use lighting to secure home and industrial areas. I now visit individuals to set up their specific requirements for lighting using kits with LED's, battery and battery charges etc, so that all is illuminated even when there is no ZESA!
I was the first to bring Bulawayo fundraisers like - Music by Moonlight held at Whitestone school in their bushy veld in 2006, which proved extremely popular and was incredibly well supported, unfortunately, that was when the Zimbabwe Dollar took a huge dive and I only managed to have Z$ 500 from the event. The next event after waiting for all to settle down, I held last year 2011, was Winter Warmer concert, which was supported, but not extremely well, but again, people who heard about it afterwards regretted not coming. I am now going to hold Amazing Autumn Concert on the 31st March 2012 which will have a variety of musicians and singers and held in the beautiful setting of 26 on Park Restaurant with the Restaurant chiefs coming up with a fantastic picnic basket for 4 to be purchased for the evening.
I need sponsorship in any form for the concert and/or during the whole year, of which if you sponsor, advertising will be free on the night and in my updates for the rest of the year!
I require the following to help reduce costs for the Amazing Autumn Concert, audience picnic baskets: 1. cheeses - cheddar, gouda and cream cheese 2. biscuits - both savory and sweet 3. Chicken 4. Beef 5. Ciabatta and Baguettes (loaves) 6. Lettuces and Tomatoes 7. Chocolates
During the year I require the following: 1. Money to help pay for phone calls both on land line and cell, salary and medical aid 2. Stationery for my office: Printer Cartridges, pens, bond paper, flash sticks, etc.
If you feel you can sponsor in this fund raiser and support me through the year for Crime Awareness Bulawayo as a whole, please do not hesitate to contact me on the following numbers: Land line Byo: 09-243938 or cell: 0712-701 323 or email: crime@iwayafrica.co.zw And I will visit you personally to tie up the details. Thanking you in advance for reading this appeal and to hopefully support me to help others become survivors - not victims!
Yours against crime

Hillside Dams annual membership cards are now available for 2012. Discount for existing members. Please contact Mr M. Ncube, the Estate Manager. The card makes life a little easier at the gate as you don t need to search for those dirty dollar notes to pay for entry!

For those interested in where the money goes. It is used ENTIRELY for running costs of the Conservancy. In truth it is not enough but I can assure you it is not being pocketed. Labour cost, fuel and maintaining equipment are our prime costs. Revenue is only gate entry and events charges. Thanks to those who continue to subsidise the project. I am sure the entire Bulawayo community is most grateful.

Hillside Dams Conservancy is delighted to allow bona fide community groups free entry to the "Dams". Indeed it is a key part of our community objectives. We are very happy to welcome the various senior citizen, school and orphanage groups who now come regularly. It is a sign of great confidence that people again feel safe to come to this great facility in the heart of Bulawayo. However please can we ask that ALL visits are booked prior to the time. We need to make arrangements as to who goes where, gate access , etc. We have had a little bit of confusion and conflict of late. Please call Mr M. Ncube on 09.242490. Please this applies also to any paying party groups, church gatherings, etc. Let us know. We are not trying to spoil things for you,but simply working things out before last minute crises as we had over the just ended weekend.
Thanks.

We wish to have a monthly DOG WALK around the Dams. I suggest the first Sunday of the month at 08h00. If interested please contact me on estate@hillsidedams.com. Dogs must be on leash, for owners option. Careful of ticks by the way. Note that this menace is exclusive to the Dams as my spoilt mutt covered with them after a walk around Mabukuwene on Sunday. Would suggest prior dip. Would like to start in March if there is ample interest.
Help! We have TOO MANY barbel in the Dams. Advice sought please. How about someone organising a fishing competition for these monsters? We have no objection to their removal.
If you wish to keep track of the "Dams" visit our Facebook page. Thanks to all who already support us.
For those interested the Mabukuwene issue is MORE complicated than I thought. Will keep you updated. Although not sure I have the time to take it on as well as the Dams.

9) Gossip Column

Bulawayo: This afternoon while we were out a blue pick up appeared at our gate with a couple of men in it, who said they were here on behalf of the council to change our water meter as it was faulty. My staff said they were not aware of this and would phone us to check but when they came out again the pick up was gone. It had been to our next door neighbour prior to us but had no reply at their gate. When I called the council offices, they said there is a private contractor they had been using to change faulty meters but when they checked on our account and that of our neighbour neither of us were down as having a faulty meter or having any request passed onto the contractor to change them. It sounds as if there is a group watching to see when we leave home and if they are able to get in. Please feel free to pass this on.

20) Lifts Wanted And Offered



21) Seeking Friends

Good Day
I am trying to trace any Mears relatives from Zimbabwe. My father was Anthony War Mears, who over the years related may happy tales of his life in Bulawayo. His father was War Mears and his mother Marjorie Alexandra Mears (born Prosser). Any assistance with this would be most appreciated. Many thanks. Jannine Houghton (Mears) Durban, South Africa. Shaun Houghton shaunh@telkomsa.net

I can t thank you enough for your help - and in such a short time! The response has been quite overwhelming from your readers and it really bolsters one s faith in the human spirit at times like these. Yesterday I received photographs of my father s final resting place from a couple of kind people, one of which, Alan, actually tends the place (Athlone Cemetery)

It was during a business lunch yesterday at the Groucho Club, quite a famous London watering hole when the pics came through from which I had to briefly excuse myself to regain composure!

Many, many thanks again to you and also for the kindness of your readers

Best regards
Phil Pickett
