OLYMPIC TWITTER FEVER

Why oh why did HeeHoo decide to take me to a remote mountain retreat during the Olympics I ask you with tears in my eyes?

Here we are dying to watch Kirsty and our six other Zimbabwean Olympic athletes and we have no telly or even radio!

BUT NEVER FEAR TWITTER WAS THERE!!

Yes, we watched a whole week of the 2012 Olympics on Twitter.......

Its actually quite fun if you know your way around the twits and tweets and also if you have a few friends that are twits!

Kirsty Coventry, our very own Golden Girl was swimming at the time and the entire nation was behind her, so we "hash tagged' her on Twitter and every one of her races was there for us to follow virtually verbatim!

We also followed several of our neighbouring countries' athletes too and Africa was represented in an extraordinary fashion in many disciplines and can definitely hold its head up high.

Its actually quite fun being glued to a four by four inch screen, not quite the same as being glued to the telly, but crowding round an iPhone en masses was most jovial and illuminating.

It was easy to follow Kirsty as she was almost "trending" and if one was at a loss for a stroke-by- stroke description, one could look for tweets via many quarters including our esteemed Sports Minister David Coltart. His dedication to our Olympic team was truly remarkable and he tweeted regularly and with an infectious enthusiasm that had us all gripped with Olympic Fever.

Then of course there are the Twitter clowns and pundits- like Kevin McCallum - Chief Sportswriter for the Star in South Africa. Kevin has the most amazing wit and is swift to pick up every nuance, irony and subtlety in all things. Following him on Twitter has been an edifying experience.

It's amazing just how much spirit and enthusiasm one can garner from the tiny screen of an iPhone when one needs to. Pictures were painted for us by other people's tweets that were clever, evocative and wonderfully illustrative as we had mental visions of our young athletes as they extorted mind, body and will to "Be the Best".

PAB AND THE ACADEMY

CARMINA BURANA AND THE SONG OF THE CARNIVORES

They are of an excellent quality both with regard to sound and picture and make a wonderful memento for the hundreds who took part and the even more hundreds who were present.

NORTH BY NORTHWEST
Thursday 9 August in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
Rated by many as Hitchcock's best film North by Northwest stars Cary Grant, Eve Marie Saint and James Mason. 'Roger Thornhill is not a spy. And he's certainly no murderer. Nevertheless, he's a wanted man: enemy agents want him dead; the police want him arrested; and a cool, mysterious blonde just plain wants him. Thornhill embarks on a death-defying race for his life, and the pursuit includes the iconic scene with the crop-dusting plane and the climactic chase on Mount Rushmore'. 'One of the all-time great entertainments.' [Maltin's 2012 Movie Guide] Supper available from 6.00 p.m. Admission: $3.00 [free to film members]

MASSENET: THAIS
Friday 10 August IN THE Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
Jules Massenet died a hundred years ago on 13 August 1912 and, if there is one piece by him that everyone knows, it's the Meditation from Thais, but here's an opportunity to see the opera from which it comes. Renee Fleming triumphs as the glamorous courtesan in the romantic tragedy based on the novel by Anatole France set in fourth-century Alexandria and the deserts surrounding it. The timeless struggle between earthly desire and spiritual redemption finally destroys the resolve of the monk Athanael (Thomas Hampson), just as the newly penitent Thais is welcomed to heaven. 'A vocally sumptuous and unabashedly scene-stealing Thais.' [New York Times]' Supper available during the interval. Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING
Thursday 16 August in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
"The Lord of the Rings" needs no introduction and the three epic films will be shown monthly in August, September and October in the extended versions including scenes deleted from the cinema release. In "The Fellowship of the Ring", Frodo, with the help of a courageous band of friends and allies, embarks on a perilous mission to destroy the legendary One Ring. Hunting Frodo are servants of the Dark Lord, Sauron, the Ring's evil creator and, if he succeeds in reclaiming the Ring, Middle-Earth is doomed. 'Intelligent and beautifully executed... with phenomenal production values and a fine cast led by Ian McKellen, perfect as the wizard Gandalf.' [Maltin's 2012 Movie Guide] Other dates: 13 September and 11 October Supper available from 6.00 p.m. Admission: $3.00 [free to film members]

SHOSTAKOVICH: BOLT / CHERRY TOWN
Friday 17 August in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
A double-bill of ballet and operetta by the great, gloomy Shostakovich that is fun from beginning to end! "Bolt" was a ballet to a politically correct story that fell foul of the authorities and had only one performance in Shostakovich's lifetime. It was finally revived by the Bolshoi 74 years later in 2005 and an instant success. "Cherry Town" comes from a quarter of a century later in 1957 and is a genuine operetta full of catchy tunes. The film was made in 1963 and there is little that 'differentiates it from standard 1950s Hollywood fare featuring the likes of Doris Day or Bing Crosby, though the lunacy of some of the set pieces is more reminiscent of the silent era. Highlights include a preposterously costumed dance number in a half built apartment, a construction site and on a crane. Supper available during the interval. Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

Bulawayo Island Hospice service would like to extend heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all the lovely Ladies who attended our fundraising High Tea on July 28th. Not only did they pay for their tickets but also provided eats and almost filled our donations tin!
Special thanks to the 26 on Park for waiving the venue hire costs, to the Red Hat Ladies who provided delicious cakes and sandwiches, Mrs Fiona Lander, BHN and the models who helped with a fashion show, Mrs Jenny Bent and her 'brave' models who did fun fashions, Mrs Sandy Whitehead and Mrs Colleen Peters who gave informative and thought provoking talks, Marina Jackson, Sharon Brown and Arlene Mpofu who assisted with the demos and give aways.
The event raised $840.00 towards settling our monthly commitments of utilities, fuel and vehicle maintenance, salaries and other running expenses and once again proved that though this is a Mans' world, it aint nothing without a Woman! Well done gals!!

On Friday 3 August two men one tall and fairly slim the other short and quite large walked into the office with a short large woman. The woman asked for a glass of water while the men walked into the showroom. I tended to the men in the showroom who pretended to be there separately, who were constantly talking over each other, basically distracting me. When we were done in the showroom we walked out to the office when I noticed the lady was no longer there. This was virtually not even two minutes. The men left and I went over to my bag and immediately noticed that my purse was missing. I ran outside and the whole lot of them had vanished.. I lost close on $400 in a matter of two minutes.

I am told that the exact same crew went to Wayne's butchery in Hillside but this time stealing the whole handbag. If people can be aware of their description and tactics maybe this lot can be caught out.

R.C. PLUMTREE ROAD

A concerned Bulawayo resident
is doing a fabulous job providing swing trash bins for use by our citizens. This is being sanctioned by Bulawayo Municipality but we need more bins.

They do not need to be perfect, but 44 gallon drums or similar are very much in need.

ZANE in Australia
I am delighted to let you know that ZANE Australia is now a reality.
This was initially due to the inspiration of Lindsay Sherman and Alex Reed who have used Trivia evenings to fundraise for two years in Sydney. After the event in 2012, a group of people offered to help. The result is we have a great team emerging which is energized and focused.
On the board we have : Steve Pulman, Jenna Harris, Craig Marshall, Lindsay Sherman, Kevin Gillett, Leanne Bray, myself and Robert Beckinsale who represents ZANE UK on the Australian board. Tom Benyon (OBE), who founded ZANE in the UK in 2002, is the Patron of ZANE Australia .

ZANE Australia is able to receive donations and arrange fundraising events. We will be able to move any money raised directly to Zimbabwe in a systematic way.
In the future we hope to achieve Deductable Gift Recipient DGR) status with the Australian government. There are strict guidelines and outcomes that need to be met and measured over several years,so hence it is a long process to achieve.This means that your donations will not be deductible at this stage.
Inside Zimbabwe the situation for pensioners goes from bad to worse. The retirement homes are our core concern and our primary aim is to keep them open and functioning as efficiently as possible. We also are involved in work amongst the poorest communities.

Tom Benyon has done a herculean task of fundraising all these years, but even his efforts are not enough anymore. ZANE Australia is happening at the right time.
Please urgently consider renewing the donation plan you initiated for ZANE in the past.We need it now more than ever. As before, a regular monthly donation will help us to make regular future commitments to our beneficiaries. ZANE Australia has opened a Bank Account with Westpac, and the ZANE Australia board has put appropriate signatory protections in place.
Details are:
Bank: Westpac.
Account Name: ZANE Australia
BSB: 032023
Account No: 305217
Please use your name as the reference for the donation so that we can track it. If you decide to send a regular amount we will send you an annual breakdown summarizing your donations. Most communication will be via email. All donations will be acknowledged by a receipt.
Presently, the donor liaison person on the board is Kevin Gillett. His email is: gillettkk@me.com If you have any queries or anything which you feel will be of interest to ZANE please email me at jodpur38@yahoo.com Thank you for your concern and your interest.
Warm regards
Michael Carter

Dear Member

To quote Bob Marley, who in turn was quoted by Prince Harry during his recent Caribbean tour 'don't worry because tings is gonna be alright'. The City Council is re-tarring certain roads, re-painting the road lines, and has replaced the CBD street lights with LED lights. Refuse collection is being made once a week in the high density suburbs and every fortnight in the low density suburbs, made possible by the donation of 4 refuse trucks with protective clothing and shoes from German-Australian initiative.

The Directors of FAZAK HYPERMARKET (formerly Jaggers) on Old Esigodini Road assure us that the goods they are selling are nearly all imported and chosen for the discerning shopper, from furniture, groceries, cosmetics to electrical goods etc. There are plans to include a coffee shop which will also serve breakfast.

TRADE POWER in Fife Street has recently introduced chickens cooked on a rotisserie to order-call Melissa. Tel 60809. Trade Power has to be recommended for its friendly, helpful staff. Actually, this can be said of the staff of all shops. Well done Bulawayo!

The Bulawayo Ballet society is putting on Curtain Call 2012 from 9th to 11th August starting at 7 p.m. at the Bulawayo Theatre. Dancers from Harare will also be taking part as well as ballerina Krystina Davydova from Russia and 3 Russian dancers.

They depart Bulawayo at 07:45hrs arriving in Harare at 13:40hrs and then depart Harare at 14:00hrs arriving in Bulawayo at 20:00HRS. ZULU SAFARIS is another new company, Bulawayo based, offering tours to the Matopos, Hwange and Victoria Falls. Tel:0779711644

THE NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM under its new Regional Director, Dr Moira Fitzpatrick, has become a 'must' place to visit as there are constant changes and improvements taking place and lunch time lectures. Mr Ken Blake, the Chairman of the Tree Society, will be giving a talk on Mopani Trees on the 23rd August at lunch time and in the evening the Drums of Peace will be performing in the grounds. The Museum is also starting a Conservation Club for children. Tel 250045 for information on their events and lectures.

BANKING.
ZABG BANK has relocated from 42 S Parirenyatwa St to 141 Main Street, between 14th and 15th Avenues. They also have a branch at Parkade Centre. They informed the Association that there is no danger of ZABG closing down as their bank is fully capitalized. CBZ BANK is offering customers and prospective customers a savings account free of charge. BARCLAYS BANK this year celebrates its 100 years of banking in Zimbabwe

NATIONAL PARKS ENVIRONMENT 2000 have launched a 'Carry in, carry out' campaign - 'what you take in you should bring out' in the way of cans, packets and other litter from your picnics. Any driver throwing litter out of a vehicle should be reported to Parks authorities. Let us please help to keep our Parks clean. THE MATOPO CONVERSATION SOCIETY is doing a great job in making a positive contribution in maintaining the Matopos as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in various ways, including disseminating information and setting up a website - check www.MATOBO.ORG A family/individual subscription is only US$20.

THE ETHANDWENI CRAFT FAIR & MARKET will be held at the Hillside Dams on Saturday 4th August.

You would be amazed at the number of people in 'lil ole' Bulawayo who have made some interesting journeys and occasionally been asked to talk about them. We have people who have climbed Kilimanjaro; sailed down the Amazon; gone to Rwanda to see the gorillas and been to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands which is a protected haven for fish and bird life, to name a few. Call us at the BPA and we can give you a list of names and contact details

DELTA BEVERAGES have very generously painted and erected a sign for the Association which has been placed in 8th Avenue close to the Small City Hall so that the local people and visitors are aware that we located in the municipal car park. Delta Beverages has also repainted our large bill board which will be attached to the outer fencing of the offices. This was originally inside the yard but obscured by the trees. The third sign is at the entrance to the car park and states INFORMATION BUREAU, so our staff receive a lot of enquiries not related to tourism at all, but at least the enquirers can be pointed in the right direction.

We leave you with this message 'to all people there is a reason for their being here, to fulfill a particular call on their lives, to accomplish that which they were born to do' Grateful thanks to Black & White Media Productions, Harare, for forwarding to us this inspiring message.

Found A delightful, inexpensive place to stay, at the top of the Soutpansberg Mountains near Louis Trichardt, the Avoca Vale Country Hotel. The buildings used to be owned by the "Inn" group from Zimbabwe but they stood empty for some months before being taken over by the present owner. Avoca Vale is apparently an ' idyllic spot in Ireland', and we found this charming hotel a tranquil place to stay with lovely gardens and a swimming pool for warmer weather. We were welcomed with delight by some of the Staff who come from our own country, who were so happy to see us & chat about "home'. We sampled the Ladies Bar .... "The Strawberry Duck", and enjoyed our dinner in the Drake Dining Room - good food well presented.
Best of all was the price, which was very reasonable . Their contact details: www.avocavalehotel.com Tel; +27 15 517 7987/8 Cell +27 83 463 5450

EXAMINATIONS - THE KEY TO PASSING EXAMINATIONS PROGRAMME - AUGUST HOLIDAYS 2012

Is your child sitting for 'O' / 'A' level exams (Zimsec or IGSCE) in 2012 November? Are you concerned that she s/he is:

Highly stressed resulting in you also being stressed out Nervous, overtired and anxious and has serious concerns about the exams Has so much to do and has so little time Struggling to work out a study timetable / programme Not sure how to study for the important exams coming up Needs assistance on how to answer exam questions, etc..

Help is now available for students at schools, in group sessions or individually. Research shows that more students fail to pass their examinations or get lower grades not because they don't know their work, but just don't know how to tackle exams. Two sessions of 'The Key to Passing Examinations' Programme will be run in the August holidays and will focus on:
Overcoming obstacles that lead to failure in examinations Reinforcing good personal and study habits Dealing with examination related s tress - physical and intellectual Drawing up a study timetable and adhering to it - the value of time management Identifying the facts about examinations and what examiners look for The SQ3R method of study - a practical and useful method of study Specific guidelines on techniques in the exam room and on tackling the answering of various types of exam questions
Presentation - use of laptop / data projector / power point / extensive graphics and examples / e beam where applicable - students end up with a personalized action plan for their own retention and future use. Teachers and parents welcome to attend. Duration - One morning 9 am to 12.00 noon (refreshments provided during a short break) Previews can be arranged by appointment. For more details on this and other student and staff development and training programmes contact the undersigned; B.K.DOOLABH - Telephone: 09-461212 0773 786 465 E mail bard@netconnect.co.zw / bkdoolabh@gmail.com
