FANTABULOUS FORTNIGHT.

We have had the most fabulous fortnight, nay indeed a magical month of excitement.

Multitudinous magnificent weddings, exciting birthdays of all descriptions, bachelor parties and bachelorettes.

And best of all every one of my precious fledglings (with but one sad exception) under our very roof for weeks and weeks.

Amongst the most exciting event was the engagement of our beautiful daughter Joanne to Alex, a truly wonderful young man of whom we heartily approve !!

It has been a whirlwind of young people, music, trampolines, lodges, rock climbing and swimming pools. There are many wonderful tales to be told but as we are still totally absorbed in our family, I must tell you today's hilarious tale.

Coming back this morning from a glorious day and night at the Big Cave Camp in the Matopos we were stopped by several policemen at "yet another" roadblock.

Totally disinterested in the usual spot checks, i.e. whether we had radio licenses, vehicle licenses, driver's licenses, red triangles or fire extinguishers, this time their sights were set on but one thing - was our car battery secured ?

We were to use an awful expression "gob smacked" ......

Of course our battery was secured or the car would not be moving surely? But no, an erstwhile young fellow, who had more than likely never even been behind the wheel of a car in his life, delved deep into the car engine and started to wrestle rather violently with our car battery.

To his chagrin it did not move an inch, but then why should it? A state of the art, beautifully kept Mercedes 270ML the sort of car that usually does have a pristine engine and normally with a secure battery?????

Unhappy with his wrestling match, our officer of the law turned his attention to the car behind us, wherein were the other members of our family, safely ensconced in my own pristine and beautifully kept motoring piece.

My future son in law was bemused when the officious gentleman ordered him imperiously to open the bonnet. Attacking the car battery with renewed vengeance, he managed to shift it minuscularly, and triumphantly he berated us loudly and vehemently for having not "secured" our battery correctly. My son in law was astounded, the battery was about as secure as the fellow's head was secured to his neck, but it did not have a "bracket over the top".

Explaining patiently that this particular method of securing batteries was discontinued in the seventies as it could cause batteries to short, but the police officer would have none of that and herded us towards a group of fellow officers who were busy fining at least a dozen distraught tourists for the same heinous misdemeanor.

It was a sad reflection on all that is rotten in the country right now, Botswanans, South Africans, tourists from Australia and America, all bundled on the side of the road in the searing heat, paying fines for the most ridiculous of reasons, while lorries roared past possibly with bald tyres, no brakes and dodgy drivers licenses.

"I was born here" said one very irate lady, "but I swear I will never return". There was however humor as we all laughed in utter amazement at this ridiculous situation, and wondered if the police gathered every morning to decide for what insane reason they were going to fine and totally flummox and enrage all the local and visiting motorists for today....

addendum

PEROXIDE IS A 'FREE RADICAL' WHICH IS TOXIC TO SWALLOW! There has been a 'fad' to take a drop or drops of Peroxide (H2O2) in a glass of water in the belief that it will enhance the oxygen in your system healing you of all sorts of ailments. Doing this slowly poisons your system. Your body fights daily to reduce the amount of free radicals in your system. By adding it in you are not assisting your system but adding to its work.
Used outside of the body it is indeed wonderful and has great healing properties!

2) Notices and Event

My Africa

What do you feel when you think of Africa
The heat, the dust, the magnificent setting sun
The scent of jasmine redolent of spring
The madala, the children, the daughter, the son.

What emotions does the word evoke
The embodiment of the gogo in the traditional dress
The Madala in the shade of his grass roofed hut
The gentleness of people who deserve some rest

The lion that roars in the shade of the acacia
The wildife drinking from the waterhole as one
The singing of crickets, the croaking of frogs
The sense of peace in the setting of the sun.

The pink and orange dusky sky, the woodsmoke
The distant beat of a lonely drum
The bushfires, the haze in the heat of the day
The suffering of humans, victory won?

A scar across the heart of a developing nation
The children lost to mothers too young
A fierce longing for the turn of fates' own tide
The love of a land and the belief in its pride.

The aroma of meat on a wood stoked braai
Drifting softly upwards in the evening sky
Cumulus clouds brimming with rains
To thunder down on the devastated plains.

Do you see the possibility of equality and freedom
Do you feel in your heart the love that belongs
To the people of this country, whatever their race
To the mothers, the fathers, the daughters, the sons.

Do you know in your heart, in the grand scheme of things
That this vast continent floats in a universe of hope
Imagine the possibility of a human being
Who overcomes obstacles to reign supreme.

So what do you feel when you think of Africa
Do you see the potential of what could be
Has faith brought you through the years that are past
With a love for this land and a loyalty to last.

THE END OF AN ERA

After 80 years Hotel Rio closed its doors on 31st August to the public. It was built by Mr Hall & Bassett in 1930's and known as the Round House until it changed its name to Hotel Rio in 1948. Having one of the first sprung dance floors in the country Hotel Rio played host to many a dance band - one such resident band called Harmer's Rhodians led by Jack Harmer.

Being built outside the city limits at that time, visitors to the hotel were classed as travelers and were entitled to consume alcohol on a Sunday after signing the register as a bone fide traveler. During the second world war it was one of the over seas air men's favorite haunts who were based at the local flying schools. In late1979 through 1980 Hotel Rio's accommodation was assigned as a monitoring force base.

Amongst previous owners include: W. J. Bassett 1933 - 1946, D. Wylie, 1946 - 1973
Jimmy & Maureen Robson 1973 - 1981, David & Sheena Liddell 1981 - 2012.

The hotel has been a favorite venue for weddings and other celebrations. During the 70's and 80's Saturday night dinner dances were always well supported. Sunday was for the family with braai, chicken in the basket, roast lunch and not to forget the pony rides and of course the playground with the round about, which caused many a child to scream, whether in delight or freight!

Hotel Rio will now be home to Kidz Kan Zimbabwe Trust who will care for and shelter young children and girls from abused families. Kidz Kan Zimbabwe is in the capable hands of Debbie Brennocks, whom many of you will know.

If any readers have any anecdotes about Hotel Rio, we would be delighted to hear from you on email rioliddell@gatorzw.co.uk .

My Great Grandfather Albert "Dick" Hill and his son in law (my Grandfather William "Jack" Bassett built the Hotel Rio and ran it, they also built the Midland Hotel in Gwelo .My mother was Doreen Smith (nee Bassett) Joy's Hairdressing Salon .

Kind regards Alan Smith .

CITY OF BULAWAYO

THE BIG FLUSH DURING WATER SHEDDING

The public is advised that there is a need to schedule a flush exercise of the reticulation system in all areas that do not use septic tanks. This is due to the recent water shedding program by Council which has seen a reduced amount of water entering the sewerage system. All residents of Bulawayo are invited and expected to participate in this exercise. Every household is requested to flush their toilets systematically at 7.30pm the very day after the 72hours of water shedding. This is done to prevent any sewer blockages as we anticipate longer periods without water in the reticulation system. Please note that this is in addition to the normal flushing that will occur during the day.
Consumers are kindly requested to conserve water in order to minimize the impact.
The City Council wishes to apologise to its valued customers for the inconvenience caused.

CANCER SUPPORT COURSE
Have you been diagnosed with Cancer? If you have Cancer at any stage or no matter how far it has spread this is for you! Come hear GOOD NEWS!

Eagles' Wings is running a Course to provide people with knowledge and take the mystery out of the disease in terms of the spiritual, psychological and physical dynamics behind Cancer so as it can be defeated and we will show you how to create the environment to help your body heal.

Your Thinking, Eating and Sleeping patterns determine the quality of your health, how they affect or influence each other and how if you go wrong in one area the other two areas will also be negatively affected.

There is a combination of multiple factors involved in the development of Cancer involving all 3 of these areas. Therefore what we will work on in this course is to, unravel this disease like an onion and deal with one layer at a time.
In summary the following aspects will be covered:
1. Beating Cancer through eradicating Toxic Mindsets - fear, anxiety, stress, strife, anger, resentment, hate, bitterness, unforgiveness, repressed emotions, despair, hopelessness, grief and the genetic defects involved.
2. Beating Cancer with Nutrition
3. Beating Cancer with correct sleeping patterns

3) Roses And Raspberries
Could someone please elucidate me on the requirements for reflectors on cars and commercial vehicles in Zimbabwe?

Last week we were fined $20 in Esigodini for having "non-compliant reflectors" (two strips of solid-red reflective tape on either side of the rear end of the pick-up) while the traffic officers insisted that "ONE LONG STRIP OF RED HONEYCOMB-TYPE REFLECTIVE TAPE is required". (Details of the type of reflectors we displayed were not given on the Admission of Guilt form, needless to say, so how "true" our offence was, is debatable!) Three vehicles at a time were pulled over for this "offence", while the VAST majority of vehicles passing through the road block had exactly the same reflectors that we had. Ten minutes later, we drove past the Esigodini Police Station and noted with annoyance that both the two ZRP vehicles parked at the Esigodini Police Station had the same reflectors that we had, and were thus "non-compliant"! When we challenged the Commanding Officer at the ZRP station he stated that the cars were not on the road, and therefore it was irrelevant. I wondered if these two police pick-ups had not been on the road SINCE the promulgation of the new regulations? Who does he think he was kidding?

Subsequently, we have noted that most pick-ups travelling on our roads, including ZRP vehicles, display two solid, not honeycomb, reflectors, as we had! Where are "honeycomb type reflectors" specified?? Why don't the arresting officers keep copies of the regulations?

I have tried to find the full regulations in this regard on the internet, to no avail. Statutory Instrument 154 of 2010 as Gazetted, with regard to reflectors, simply states "Detailed specifications are available in the regulations" but I have been unable to find more detailed "regulations" to check. Can anyone please help? I fear that once again the ZRP is ripping us all off, and it makes me MAD!

It should also be noted that we were not given the option to appear in court to contest the offence...the relevant block on the Admission of Guilt form was simply crossed out by the issuing officer. Nor were we given the opportunity to pay within 7 days.

And then I wonder if the book of Admission of Guilt forms even sees the Clark of Court.....

Dambari Wildlife Trust World Rhino Day Golf competition on 22nd September was a resounding success with 56 golfers taking part in a 4 Ball Better Ball Stapleford at Bulawayo Golf Club. We raised awareness about the plight of our rhino and garnered a magical $3280.00 for our Matopos conservation projects as a result of the outstanding generosity of the golfers, advertisers and prize sponsors.

Roses for Matopos National Park
In recent times I have heard many, many complaints about the state of the Rhodes Matopos National Park. The most common are: no animals, bad roads, awful ablutions, litter-strewn and it is too expensive. As some one who works in the area both as a guide and researcher, I find these generalisations to be too harsh and a bit inaccurate to boot.

Over 18 months ago, the Parks entrance fees were reduced for adult Zimbabweans to $3 from $5. Children are $2. Your entrance fees do pay for the upkeep of the park and I can honestly say I have seen vast improvements in the last two years. Go to Maleme and see how the picnic sites have been cleared and cleaned up. The main toilets are kept clean and the rest are in the early stages of repair. Other picnic sites around the park have been cleared too, especially near Hazelside and Mpopoma. The cottages and lodges at Maleme are being fixed up and upgraded at a prodigious rate and I would not hesitate to recommend a stay there for anyone. More remains to be done but there are plans afoot. The road verges have been cut and signs repainted. Ongoing small repairs to the roads are happening although there is a lack of labour, expertise and appropriate equipment which hampers progress.

It is apparent to many that the animal populations have declined in recent years, especially compared to the allegedly halcyon days of the 1980s and 1990s. There are several factors influencing this, including the disappearance of the fence and many poaching attempts which has meant the animals have scattered. The heavy traffic along the main roads (which are public roads) disturbs the animals and many have moved into more remote areas. You won't see many animals unless you go walking in more remote areas. I recommend you ask about hiring a game scout for a couple of hours and go for an early morning hike in the Hazelside or Gordon Park/Mtshelele Valley areas and see what you find. Just this week, I have seen fair-sized herds of sable, wildebeest, white rhino, warthog, impala and kudu as well as bushbuck, steenbok, duiker, klipspringer, leopard and the smaller predators like serval and brown hyena. Ongoing wildlife surveys using camera traps shows a healthy biodiversity, albeit with smaller populations than we'd perhaps like.

The heavy through-traffic to the communal areas means a lot of litter is thrown from the windows of the buses and constant efforts are made by parks, tour operators and the boy scouts to collect litter but it is a mounting problem. I believe Parks are looking at solutions, including a carry-in, carry-out policy, which is difficult to enforce due to the many entrances/exits of the park. But they are trying and deserve support instead of complaints. Visitors could also always stop and collect any rubbish they see as well. I always carry a plastic bag in the car for this purpose.

There is no denying the the Rhodes Matopos National Park has its problems but there is so much that is positive and good about current events. And the future looks brighter especially when one hears of plans to redo the fence, cooperation with the local communities on the part of the authorities, new research and conservation projects, museum revamps, and increased tourist arrivals which means more revenue to invest in the park. A decade of decline cannot be reversed overnight and merely griping about it cannot help.

I urge the Bulawayo Community and those in the diaspora to invesitgate to get involved. You don't need to give money or equipment, but even solid advice or a willingness to get your hands dirty will make all the difference in the world.It is our park after all and we should pull together to improve it. The state we leave it for our children will speak volumes about us in the future.

Yours truly,
Paul H.

We have been receiving (by e-mail communication) reports from tourists of littered campsites. I have responded to these reports and we had a clean-up blitz last week and have cleaned up all the picnic and campsites. Despite this effort we know that the public will not respond to clean areas by keeping them clean and so we will continue with a weekly clean-up. We also intend to make a 'carry in - carry out' policy for litter but because Matopos has a number of public roads running through it, it will be a difficult activity to enforce. If people come across a littered area it would help if they e-mailed me direct nmonks2009@yahoo.co.uk and I will be able to respond quickly. Through your facility please would you be able to mention the above (please edit as necessary).

Thank you for your facility and for your assistance.

Yours sincerely

8) Bulawayo News

Dear Mags,
re your previous Diary page. I was really saddened to hear that Haddon & Sly and Saunders were no more. I spent most of my BSAP service in Bulawayo and loved the place and the people there very much. I remember Radio Limited with my dear friend Davy Dick who worked there. Then I used to perform on TV in Montrose studio's with Sonya Hattin who dubbed me "the singing policeman"! Also sang at wedding's in Meikles etc with the Mike Barker band which included Jimmy Mc Groarty. Fond memories indeed. Take care.

Eric. (Birrell).

Parkinsons support group in Bulawayo.
Is there anyone out there who is either aware of a Parkinsons support group in Bulawayo or would like to be part of one or who would like to start one?
If the answer is 'yes' to any of these questions please contact Clare Cullinan on e-mail (mikecullinan@zol.co.zw) or L/L 04308102 or cell 0774186355.

THE IDEAL BOOK FOR CHRISTMAS

This is a story about a paradise lost. . . . About an African dream that began with a murder . . .
In 1978, in the final, bloodiest phase of the Rhodesian civil war, eleven-year-old Lauren St John moves with her family to Rainbow's End, a wild, beautiful farm and game reserve set on the banks of a slow flowing river. The house has been the scene of a horrific attack by guerrillas, and when Lauren's family settles there, a chain of events is set in motion that will change her life irrevocably.

Rainbow's End captures the overwhelming beauty and extraordinary danger of life in the African bush. Lauren's childhood reads like a girl's own adventure story. At the height of the war, Lauren rides through the wilderness on her horse, Morning Star, encountering lions, crocodiles, snakes, vicious ostriches, and mad cows. Many of the animals are pets, including Miss Piggy and Bacon and an elegant giraffe named Jenny. The constant threat of ruthless guerrillas prowling the land underscores everything, making each day more dangerous, vivid, and prized than the last.

The book is $20.00 and entire proceeds are being donated to The Haven in Bulawayo, under the auspices of Morning Mirror and the generous author Lauren St John.

TROPICA NURSERY
4 Gibbs Road Glencoe Bulawayo
Tel : 288873

At last winter is behind us and our September spring is almost over. September is always a good time to have a good look at the garden and perhaps make a few changes especially with our critical water shortage. A few water wise ideas for the garden would be to reduce your lawn area and incorporate more paving or gravel. Mulch flower beds with all the leaves that are being shed at the moment or use pebbles or bark chips. Mulches reduce evaporation by up to 70%. Watering early morning and late afternoon into the evening makes the water go a lot further. Group plants as to their water requirements and grow more indigenous and succulent plants.
Tropica has just received a new delivery of ground covers, shrubs and fruit trees.
We look forward to seeing you and to help with any garden problems. Enjoy your gardening and don't give up - the rain will come!
