1) Editorial

Mastodon Maelstrom

HeeHoo and I always get a yearning to visit Hwange Game Reserve at this time of the year. Its a good time to see the birds and animals as the vegetation is sparse, however we were just not prepared for the surreal scenes that awaited us.

We arrived at 2.30 on Friday at Main Camp, it was dry yes, very definitely, but we had seen it dry before year after year at this time. However something was different this year, something intrinsically different.

The twenty kilometers surrounding main camp, en route to Nehimba Exclusive Photographic Safari Camp, was a frenzy of elephants. There were hundreds, nay thousands, all excruciatingly thin, all in a frantic search for water, that most precious of all commodities.

Worse still, there were more dead and dying elephants than I have ever seen in all my years of game viewing. Almost every natural pan was dry, and there were giant carcasses everywhere.

The vegetation too, was reminiscent of a lunar landscape. Not a single tree or shrub had been spared, they were torn up, striped bare of all bark, not a green leaf to be seen anywhere, just a total, desolate, devastation.

I know its Mother Nature's way of keeping down the population, I know the National Parks and Wildlife folk work tirelessly to keep as many pumps going as they possibly can, but this was a natural disaster of vast proportions as far as one could ascertain.

We ventured further afield along the main road towards Robbins and Sinamatella, and were faced with further ravages to the park, fires had also taken their toll, and the normal abundant plains game was just not to be seen. A few desultory herds of zebra, a couple of giraffe listlessly searching the tops of the Mopani trees for anything, just anything, to fill their bellies. Very few impala, not a single wildebeest, a lone Sable as skittish as the day was long.

But it was the pressure of the vast families of skeletal elephant that scared us the most. The poor creatures had to walk so far away from the existing waterholes that they were exhausted and starving, and yet it was imperative that they returned every twenty-four hours to the overburdened waterholes.

As we neared Nehimba there were even more of the great behemoths, racing from dry pan to dry pan frantically. Those pans that were pumping were absolutely clogged with eles and sadly they were fighting in panic for that most precious commodity on all the earth.

HeeHoo and I are no strangers to elephant behavior, we have undertaken ten Hwange Game Counts where we have observed these gentle giants for countless hours. Their behavior in normal years has always been impeccable. A new group arriving at a waterhole will usually stand patiently waiting it's turn at the pan, issuing the famous "elephant rumble" to advise the elephants at the pan that they are waiting so "hurry up".

Courteous, deferential, polite and gracious, as thirsty as they may be, usually the entire family would wait until the pan had been vacated by the previous herd, but not today! Running at full tilt, and believe me an elephant can move pretty fast when he is thirsty, these poor dehydrated beasts, exhausted from their weary food search over hundreds of kilometers, would barge their way into the pan, knocking each other over, shrieking in rage, squealing in frustration and desperate thirst.

We had never heard or seen anything like it before. Even the buffalo were nibbling the new acrid shoots on the trees, where buffalo are not browsers they are grazers !!

Every natural pan we passed was totally dry, or a giant mud seep, where the carcasses of elephants had died an agonizing death, stuck firmly in the treacherous mud. The Hwange operators told us tales of lion attacking weak and debilitated elephant in their dying throes, phenomena seldom heard of in Hwange.

Their giants skins hanging grey, dull and lifeless, their eyes filled with white mucous, herd after desperate herd, moms, dads, babies all trudging, running, frantically seeking their lives' blood.

This happened ten years ago in the early nineties, when yet another crippling drought ravaged Matabeleland, thousands of animals died an agonizing death, by dehydration and starvation. And as the pressure of the elephants descended on the few working waterholes, so the plains game, the cats and the small mammals are driven away by the frantic multitudinous mass of elephants.

Fortunately further south east in the park the operators, Friends of Hwange and National Parks, are furiously putting down boreholes to try and create water points in areas where there is still a little grazing, but sadly not enough and not in time.

At the delightful photographic safari camp where we were lucky enough to be staying, the swimming pool was a focal point as countless elephant came in their droves, to drink the fresh water from the pool! A great entertainment for the guests but a tragic indication of the desperation of these great grey giants.

The Loxodonta Africana, Africa's jewel, so special and yet seriously under the threat of yet another of Matabeleland's horrendous and devastating droughts.

Next week I will tell you about Nehimba, Hwange's best-kept secret, an exclusive photographic Safari Camp with a great big future.

thePoint Power of Presence Seminar
'Awaken a new way of Seeing, for a new way of Being'

With Stephen D. Norval Evolutionary Emergence Educator Awaken - Transform - Emerge

Please join us on thePoint, a 4-day exploration into the Power of Presence and the Science of Expression with Stephen Norval, founder and creator of the truePoint Conscious Emergence Seminar series.

Stephen, who has been teaching conscious transformation for 28 years, guides us through a process leading to conscious emergence: a perspective on Life beyond awakening and transformation. This is a perspective of natural intelligence - how it informs our action and is the source of authenticity within all human relating. This perspective is current, profoundly liberating and deeply encouraging as we meet and deal with the challenges we face in a rapidly changing world, individually and collectively, in relationship to ourselves and each other - personally and professionally.
This is a learning experience in which you will:
Gain clarity of seeing that will empower you with the intelligence of higher creative potentials. Verify your natural intelligence and strengthen your capacity to relate with all e.g. family, children and colleagues. Learn to hold authentic power in a way that empowers those around you to co-create what works. Be introduced to the 'Wheel of Emergence', consisting of the 6 Fundamentals & 6 Imperatives of Conscious Emergence. It is a practical way to engage the action of self-realization. It is the guideline of true integrity and leads to an absolute and authentic expression of the true essential self. It cuts through to the essence of transformational work and is the next significant step in the (r)evolution and emergence of our highest potentials.
When we have true perspective we stand firmly in the realm of the unimaginable, inspired to create what is most required by the heart, at that moment, for the sake and the benefit of the Whole. We are directly connected to purpose and meaning, which translates into an ecstatic urgency to contribute to life and the living, by expressing the Power of Presence with an Open Heart. Seeing thePoint of it all - The unimaginable becomes possible! 'Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible and soon you will be doing the impossible.' - St Francis of Assisi
When: 22-25 November 2012 Where: Bulawayo, Zimbabwe

PAB AND THE ACADEMY

THE FINAL CUT
Thursday 25 October in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
The final instalments in the Francis Urquhart saga. Will he outwit his enemies one last time, or will his long career end in disgrace and defeat?... Supper available from 6.00 p.m. Admission: $3.00 [free to film members]

BIZET: CARMEN
Friday 26 October in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
With Anna Caterina Antonacci and Jonas Kaufmann bringing a rare erotic intensity to the drama of Carmen and Don Jose, this Royal Opera House production filmed in 2006 is a darkly passionate reading of one of the world's favourite operas. "Two dazzling stars" [Daily Telegraph]; "Physical and sexy" [London Evening Standard]. Supper available during the interval. Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

STATE OF PLAY
Thursdays 1, 8 & 15 November in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
After Urquhart, another outstanding BBC serial, this time 'a tense conspiracy thriller that twists deeper and deeper into the hostile twilight world where politics meets the press. It begins with the murder of a young man, in what appears to be a drug-related killing, and the apparently coincidental death of Sonia Baker who falls to her death on the London Underground. She was a research assistant for MP Stephen Collins, an ambitious politician hotly tipped for the Cabinet, and it is not long before revelations of their affair hit the headlines. As the deaths are investigated, it appears that not only were they connected, but that a conspiracy links them with corruption of high-ranking British government ministers...' Each part will be preceded by another episode of 'Yes, Minister'. Supper available from 6.00 p.m. Admission: $3.00 [free to film members]

TWO CARMEN BALLETS
Friday 2 November Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
These are two very different ballets to the music of Bizet's 'Carmen'. Matthew Bourne's 'The Car Man' was first seen ten years ago but, although the music is based on that of 'Carmen', the story differs completely and is loosely based on the novel (and film), 'The Postman Always Rings Twice'. The dreams and passions of a small community are shattered by the arrival of a handsome stranger as the inhabitants are drawn into a spiral of greed, opportunism, sex and murder. Supper available during the interval. Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

3) Roses And Raspberries
I would like to offer a special set of roses to the team at Khami Ruins World Heritage Site. I have visited there several times in the last few months and have been struck by the consistently excellent condition of the site and its surrounds. In general there is little to no litter around, the paths and firebreaks have all been cut, the braai places repaired and toilets upgraded. The roads have been repaired and they have already got their drainage ditches cleared. The roads are accessible in almost any vehicle.

The amount of restoration work done at the site in the last decade is impressive and I highly recommend a visit to see it all before the summer growth hides it from view. The site museum is rather dilapidated but I believe plans are afoot to start refurbishments in 2013. The public's entrance fees directly contribute towards the site's upkeep so the more visitors the more work can be done. This is one of the most under-visited sites in the country (I say this after looking at the visitor's book for the past year) but it is a magnificent example of the creativeness and enterprise of ancient Zimbabweans and NMMZ are doing a sterling job of looking after this priceless heritage.

King George VI Centre & School
Have you ever driven down George Avenue in Kumalo and wondered what the large complex of buildings was? It's a hive of activity with 345 students ranging in age from 3 to 20. Our Latin motto states 'through trial to triumph' and our motto is 'never give up' and this is just what we are about. Our children maybe disabled in body but not in mind or spirit. KGVI is the only senior school for the physically disabled in the country and the only junior school here in the south. Here at KGVI our children can be sure of acceptance and of an education both academic and for life. KGVI is a unique centre supporting physically disabled and Deaf children from all over Zimbabwe. Times are hard for everyone but imagine how it would be if our children couldn't attend school. Never think that because a child is disabled they cannot achieve. Our past students have jobs in banks, offices, schools, factories, NGOs, hairdressers not to mention all those who are self employed.

We are still alive and still struggling on with our work. As we come up to the end of the year we would welcome any support possible - donations in cash or kind. Or maybe you could offer one of our amazing deaf seniors some work experience, that would also be most welcome. They have been learning cookery, soft furnishings, art, hairdressing and carpentry. Or if you fancy a hairdo or a manicure/pedicure or even to buy some beautiful handmade animal print cushions, mats or bags for Christmas - please call in and see what we have on offer. CONTACT 230434 or 5 or 0773213421



Kindly publish this notice in your next weeks edition. We would like to take advantage of the free service you so kindly provide for organsiations assisting pensioners. Thank you!

SUPPLY OF FOOD TO OLD AGE PENSIONERS

It would appear that clarification is necessary with regard to the supply of food to needy pensioners in Bulawayo.
At present, SOAP, (Supporting Old Age Pensioners) supplies food to approximately 150 pensioners in and around the Bulawayo area. Parcels of food, fresh vegetables and cleaning materials are delivered to our recipients every month, and the present costing of a parcel is $90.00. SOAP has been distributing parcels to needy pensioners for more than ten years now. We would also like to point out that SOAP do not pay salaries or remunerate their volunteers in any way at all, the full amount of any donation is for the benefit of our recipients only. Should you wish to contact us please do so, by e mail, on louise@ccsalesbyo.co.zw or soap@netconnect.co.zw, cell number 077 233 2624 or 242455. The public are always very good at referring persons whom they feel may benefit from what SOAP provides and our recipients rely heavily on the parcels that are supplied to them each and every month. We also give out books, magazines, linen, clothing and any household goods which are donated.
Food for Homes is run by Les Hunt, and they supply food to homes for the aged in central Bulawayo. They too, provide this service for no remuneration. Although Food for Homes has recently lost one of their very important donors, they will continue to supply as much food to the homes as they possibly can. Les is committed to serving the aged and has been doing so for years now, firstly supplying medical assistance and later, distributing food to the homes. You can contact Les on scs.fhb@gmail.com.
Both the above organisations and Hannes Botha have been taking care of supplying food in central Bulawayo for many years now, and we would like to think that we are supplying a service, a very good service, to all our oldies that are in need, whether they are in private homes or facilities for the aged, and furthermore, we would like to think that we have the food issue for pensioners covered. We, SOAP and Food for Homes, are the ONLY two organsations servicing the aged for no remuneration.
Should you wish to contribute to either of the above organisations, Les or I would be so grateful for any assistance that would benefit our pensioners.
Hannes Botha of Zimbabwe Pensioner Support Fund also distributes food to individuals and homes in Bulawayo and beyond. These distributions take place at six weekly intervals and Hannes is based in South Africa. He can be contacted by e mail at pensupzim@telkomsa.net. His contribution to feeding pensioners is also of great value.
Les and I would like to thank the public who assist us in any way whatsoever, without you we would not be in a position to carry out this service at all and that would be tragic for our oldies.
Louise

World Squash Day

First of all, thanks for taking part in what should be a great day, which will not only be an opportunity to promote squash locally, but also to send a big message to the IOC about the worldwide support for Squash's bid to be included in the 2020 Olympics.

Here's a few pointers about the day:

1. We need a score Remember you're taking part in the world's biggest team event. Your players should play for Team SQUASH or Team 2020, each match is one game first to 20 points (sudden death at 19-all), with each match worth one point in your overall score. So if you have 40 players, 20 matches, and Team Squash win 17 of them, your score is 17-3. Tip: If you're not sure how to split your players into the two teams, you can always just pair them off into roughly equal standards, and whoever wins the spin will be playing for Team Squash We know some of you will have adapted the format - which is fine - but we do need a score reflecting how many pairs of players took part in your event. To enter your score, go to WorldSquashDay.com and hit the big red "Enter your score" button. There will be a running total plus a list of clubs and scores received as the day progresses.
2. Take some photos Please try to take as a minimum a group photo with all the players, holding a World Squash Day or Back the Bid poster, with some indication of the club and country. Do try to get some 'interesting' photos too ! Upload your photos to the World Squash Day facebook page (linked with a big button from the main site). With so many clubs involved there's a danger of being inundated, so please only upload your best photos.
3. Write a report If you can write a little summary of your event that will be great. You can add it to the Facebook page with your photos, or post it onto the WSD site (you guessed it, hit the big red button that says "Post your report").
4. Tweet about it If you use Twitter, please post updates with the #WorldSquashDay hashtag - we'll have a special page which collects and displays all of these.
5. Videos If you have any videos, upload them to YouTube with a keyword of "WorldSquashDay" (please don't post on Facebook, they're hard for us to use from there).
6. Invite your local media and be sure to let them have a report and picture after the event.
7. Above all ... Have Fun!

19) Seeking Friends

I am the middle sibling of three and have found my older sister but am still looking for my younger one. Her name is Margaret Hodgson but she was named Gloria Rose at birth. Gloria was born in Allanridge in July of 1955 and we were all placed into the Rhodesia Children Home in about 1957. Our individual (splitting us up) adoptions were finalised on 18th July 1962 under Adoption Order No. S254/55. Gloria/Margaret's adoptive parents were Mr & Mrs FWR Hodgson who (at that time) resided at 246 Arcturus Rd in Salisbury (Harare now). They apparently moved to the UK soon after but had a link to SA as we came into possession of a letter written in 1993 to a now defunct South African magazine "Personality" wherein Margaret/Gloria's God parent wrote asking for info. The God parent indicated at that time that Margaret was living in the UK. I also live in the UK and we would dearly love to find Margaret/Gloria.

At last Glencoe received its first rainfall of the season. It was such a treat to be able to go into the garden and nursery and enjoy it instead of worrying about how to keep it all alive with such a limited amount of water - so far, so good! On Thursday, we received some new plants which included the new Euphorbias, Diamond Fizz and Diamond Blush - wonderful white summer flowering perennials. There are the three very popular Durantas, Sheena's Gold, Blue Sapphire and Goldmine and something different - a Tabasco Yellow Chillie which I am assured is very, very hot. We have Jatropha, different verbenas just to mention a few of a huge selection of plants which range from succulents to ferns. This year we are trying to encourage everyone to plant at least one - preferably more - indigenous trees/shrubs. Huntsman Trees, run by Brian and Lene Williams have a vast selection of trees and shrubs to chose from. For information on the trees please contact either Tropica or Huntsman Trees (email: huntsmantrees@gmail.com). They have compiled a list of suitable trees and shrubs for the average sized suburban garden which is very comprehensive and very useful. Enjoy the rain and your garden
