1) Editorial

Pachyderm Pandemonium

It seems I have been a bad girl by writing (from my heart) that last editorial about Hwange National Park.

However it was not done with malice or the express intention of destroying our tourism, it was done with a fierce and undying love for my country and all that is contained therein.

Hopefully my article will bring in floods of donations to Friends of Hwange and National Parks for more pumps, diesel and assistance.

HeeHoo and I had brunch at The Waterhole at Main Camp, which is now a flourishing little haven of peace AND if you look closely you might spot that elusive little Crimson-Breasted Shrike wearing a bright yellow waistcoat - the rare yellow morph!!

At Nyamndhlovu Pan we watched a pride of 9 lion stalk a malnourished roan antelope (unsuccessfully as their bellies were obviously full) and we spent a wonderful hour watching the four cubs trying their hardest to annoy Papa Lion. The guard at the pan was delightful in his enthusiasm for the game at the pan, and would not let us leave until we had absorbed all the little interplays that were taking place at this magical spot.

Another very magical spot was Nehimba. Nehimba is a newish Photographic Safari Camp in Hwange and we were lucky enough to be able to spend a weekend there recently.

It was extraordinary. We had seen Nehimba 18 months earlier when it had been a piece of dry and barren land with but a seep and an anthill to grace it, and due to a young couple's steadfast dream, a beautiful lodge has emerged like a phoenix from the ashes.

Situated about fifty kilometers from Main Camp, Nehimba is now one of the most crucial players in the area, in establishing much needed watering points for the glorious herds of plains game and elephant.

Small and exclusive, Nehimba has a very personal touch, such a personal touch that one can almost touch the elephants!

Poor pachyderms in pandemonium, their desire for water lead them right to the lodge swimming pool where there was a constant tussle with the hot but exhilarated guests!! Great caution is urged with these mighty beasts as a wild animal is always unpredictable, but the giant gentle beasts had but one thing on their mind, the search for water.

The lodge owners have drilled several boreholes to provide relief in the area, and slowly the game is moving back to assuage their lifeblood.

Traditionally the Park is dry and devastated at this time of the year, but it has its own peculiar beauty. It is actually a seriously gut-wrenching beauty that only a Zimbo will ever understand. Stark, scary, the pinks, greys, taupes and terracottas blend brilliantly into a tapestry that takes one's breath away. Mile after mile of desolation, but mile after mile of the promise of a new dawn. Suddenly as the first soft rains fall, tiny sprigs of hope shoot swiftly and unexpectedly in a silent promise of salvation.

It's natures way - her own inglorious culling program, her own cruel scorpion twist, stark, terrible, but necessary.

Nehimba means "Land of Giants". Relax in a land of yesteryear, where strongholds of elephants roam freely without fences or restriction.

2) Notices and Event

More on Hwange and the Mastodon Maelstrom

We have had news from Gary Cantle that the Park has received some meaningful rainfall - hopefully this will boost new growth of grass and leaves, and the game will bounce back as it always does. There is also water in many of the pans now.

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

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'. Roland Petit, who died on 10 July this year, was probably the greatest French choreographer of the last half century and his version of 'Carmen', loosely based on the novel that was Bizet's inspiration, has been described as an erotic thriller. 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]

LEHAR; LA VEUVE JOYEUSE
Friday 9 November Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
The greatest Viennese operetta of the 20th century goes back to its literary roots and is presented in French guise by the Opera de Lyon. The heroine of "La Veuve Joyeuse" is called Missia Palmieri, but she had started off in 1905 as Hanna Glawari in Vienna, better known as "The Merry Widow". Her rekindled romance with dissipated diplomat Count Danilo takes place in Paris - notably chez Maxim's in the final act - and in fact has its roots in a French play. This production from December 2007 is by the French director Macha Makeieff. who treats the work as the masterpiece it is. Supper available during the interval. Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

3) Roses And Raspberries
The fact that the majority of goods consumed in the country are imported has created a crisis in Zimbabwe.

Too many people are unemployed bank deposits and savings are low Funds collected as taxes are low. Zimbabwean Banks cannot save money earned by foreigners so no deposits to lend .

Zimbabwean Government cannot tax foreign companies not operating in Zimbabwe and employees in foreign companies, thus no funds to take care of citizens.
Too many Local people are unemployed ,thus people cannot pay ZESA and the Urban councils for services as they have no earnings . How do people remain employed? I make margarine for you and you make mealie-meal for me you drive me to work in your bus and my friend makes plastic packaging for the mealie-meal that you make . A cousin of yours makes the cooking oil and his brother makes corn cereals, his sister makes clothes for you etc. But if one of these products is imported then one person or several persons get unemployed. If more of the products are imported more people get unemployed. SO MAKE SURE AT LEAST HALF OF WHAT YOU BUY IS A LOCAL PRODUCT AND YOU WILL CREATE A JOB OR JOBS. You will help save my job and I will help to save your job and the government will collect taxes and sort out the water and power issues (hopefully) We have the power to help each other. Lets create jobs here and not in South Africa or China by Buying ZIMBABWEAN PRODUCTS . Every time you buy a product you create a job somewhere so why not create that job here for someone that you know and then you do not have to pay school fees for your brothers children because he will be able to find a job.
Before we blame others for our state, let's do our bit by buying Zimbabwean products.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ZESA!

We had a prepaid meter fitted on the 5th September and were $170 in credit on our previous account. Today I received an estimated bill from ZESA stating I now owe them $63.11. They have ignored the reading from when the meter was removed and over estimated me by 1,043 units.

Dave Gill.

Dear Sirs,

My family and friends (a group of 14) have been visiting Zimbabwe once a year for the last fifteen years (through good and bad times!) Every year we pack up and visit Kariba and/or the Zambezi River for 7-8 days, stopping for the odd night here and there in smaller towns. We have had some wonderful trips - Zimbabwe truly is a beautiful country with friendly people who have made our visits special over the years.

We always drive from RSA and have noted several times how clean and neat your smaller towns are, especially Gwanda and Kwe Kwe. They are to be commended. National Parks are also to be commended on their clean facilities.

However, the litter on the sides of the roads between all the towns is absolutely shocking and it is getting worse every year. All the way from Beitbridge to Chirunda there is rubbish, rubbish and more rubbish. We personally saw four truck drivers and two bus passengers throw rubbish out of their windows. People are waiting at the roadsides for transport up to their ankles in rubbish. The lay-byes are now rubbish dumps. How sad. How smelly.
Someone has to wake up and do something about the litter or you are going to lose even more tourists - even us old die-hards. We don't want to 'holiday' in a rubbish dump.
Yours sincerely
Helen Buckle DURBAN RSA

I was very upset to read your account of the trip to Hwange. It is so very sad that out heritage is being decimated. However we need rain, and lots of it. Some rains have come, and the Toads are out, but stangely calling only now and then. I have never experienced this type of pre- season mating call before. Any how, could I again request the public to be careful of these little animals, they are so often over looked, and we tend to give great attention to the "big five", but the frogs and toads are important to us, and they are giving up and going extinct at about two species per month, world wide. Please let people know I am available to help, if they need to identify, or move frogs or toads. Our big African bull frog (secong biggest frog in the world) is showing signs of stress, in 1962 I recorded 1 750 sightings, last year 2012, I recorded only five! They tend to gather under street lights when the "Flying ants", are out, and are run over by vehicles. Please look out for them and give them a chance.
As always I thank you for your help in making peole aware of our frogs, after all, our animals are not ours, they have been borrowed from our children.

A few days ago i phoned City Council asking if they could repair the potholes on Hall Road in Kumalo. I was told that they were only repairing main roads and not the smaller roads. I asked if that's the case then why are we paying rates? The lady couldn't give me an answer. Maybe we shouldn't pay rates as City Council is not doing what it's supposed to do.

NOT TO BE TAKEN LIGHTLY - by Bookey Peek

I felt terrific. It was my wedding day, and I was marrying my best friend at our house, in our garden on a glorious November afternoon, just after the first rains. And I reckoned I looked pretty damn good, in a dress covered with vividly coloured parrots, a pink cummerbund and a huge hat.
Then, after the ceremony, a woman I didn't know very well sought me out.
'That dress,' she said, looking me up and down, and wrinkling her nose, 'makes you look even skinnier than ever.' And that was it - no matter how many other people complimented me that day, and there were many, it was the only comment that I've remembered. She burst my bubble and, for the life of me, I can't think why.
Jealous? I don't think so. And she certainly didn't mean it as a compliment.
I wish I could say that this was the first time - but it's been happening all my life. And often the remarks come from friends and acquaintances who know perfectly well that I've always been thin, and I can't help it, but still feel it necessary to remind me.
It usually with begins with a worried look - a slight craning of the neck, a tilting of the head. And I start backing off because I know what's coming.
'You've lost weight!' (And that's the polite version). Now there are all sorts of variations on this one that I can read immediately from the facial expression and tone of voice. It can be accusing (why don't you eat properly!), concerned (are you quite sure it's not terminal?), or downright rude (like the large lady on my wedding day - and note the use of the euphemism).

And off I rush to the mirror, which of course confirms that they are absolutely right, My hair's all wrong for the shape of my face, those clothes that looked good this morning when we left for town, really accentuate my boniness. So why did I bother at all? Luckily for me, we live in the bush where, in the midst of a drought, my closest friends are presently even skinnier than I am. The group of kudu cows who come to the house for food every afternoon wouldn't dream of commenting on my ribs, any more than I would on theirs. And the fact is, I feel even better today than I did when we got married twenty five years ago. I'm 63, 5 feet 9 inches tall, and I weigh 60 kg. I love chocolate and ice cream, and no matter how much I eat, I never put on a pound. I cycle, I run, I walk for miles. Oh, I've tried to put on weight, believe me, I really have, but nothing works. I've hovered between 55 and 60 kgs right throughout my adult life. But I've learned to accept myself as I am - so why can't other people?
Why is there always someone waiting around that corner - ready with a comment which, no matter how much I try to ignore it, will spoil my day?

Now the mystery is this. I don't believe that there's a woman's magazine in existence which doesn't carry a regular feature on diets and losing weight. There's always a new angle - the magic bullet - seven days of rooibos tea, liposuction, foul tasting drinks, mud baths, plastic wraps. But it seems that no sooner does the weight fall off then it's back on again. People literally kill themselves over it - desperate daughters develop anorexia and bulimia, with the threat of kidney failure as a consequence. We've become obsessed with the shape of our bodies. Ridiculously so. Weight, too much of it, is such a sensitive subject that we tend to tiptoe around each other - choosing our words carefully so as not to cause offence.
I mean, imagine this for a greeting:
'Goodness, you are looking fat.' You'd never say it, would you? It would be downright cruel and demoralizing. And be careful if you mention that someone is looking well, because the response might be: 'Yes, I have put on weight, haven't I?'
Weight - on or off - carries hugely negative inferences to those who are sensitive to their size. Just check out the thesaurus.
'Fat' can equal corpulent, obese, paunchy, stout or tubby.
And 'thin'? To me, these synomyms sound even worse. Try boney, emaciated, gaunt, scraggy, scrawny or skeletal!

So, my skinny sisters (and brothers), there it is. Our plea to be accorded the same sensitivity as those who are better covered expect from us. Life is tough, and there's nothing to beat that encouraging word.
'Don't worry about your weight,' a dear friend said to me recently. 'I'd rather be like you - your feet are so light on the earth.' Which had the effect of making me feel rather graceful and ethereal for a couple of days.
And if poetry is out of the question, then just the words: 'You're looking great!' can bring the sun out from behind the clouds for every one of us on the darkest winter's day.

Tel: 09-288873 0712 806 146

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

Have compassion for everyone you meet, even if they don't want it. What appears bad manners, an ill temper or cynicism is always a sign of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen. You do not know what wars are going on down there where the spirit meets the bone. - Miller Williams -


Those who wish to sing, always find a song. - Swedish proverb -
