THAT IMMENSE AND BROODING SPIRIT

Yay ! Its winter woolie time again !!

Time to dig the old winter boots, the toasty socks, and the aromatic moth-balled winter jerseys, out of the cupboard.

People move away from HeeHoo and I at the start of winter because of our olfactory mothball scent, I really must invest in one of those contraptions that shrink wraps your woolies during summer.

ZITF has come and gone, always of great benefit to the city coffers and indeed potentially to the country's coffers.

Trade Fair is also always welcome because we have a week free from power cuts and water shortages, but we will not miss the visiting drivers who treat our city with such disdain, and bring such ugly Road Rage to disrupt our serenity!

Have you not noticed that we Bulawegians are a sedate lot? Are we not, as the city of Kings, calm and unruffled, tranquil and delicate?

We do not enjoy big bullies from the North and South invading our peace with vehicular agitation and hullabaloo. Remember next year please to leave us as insouciant and as imperturbable as you found us!!

HeeHoo and I decided to leave the flurry and fluster of the city to seek the magical peace and enchantment of the Matopos.

The Matopos is always there, its always unflappable and unhurried and time can be made to stand still for those of us who know where to find that immense and brooding spirit.

Those great, grey, granite ghosts carry secrets they will never relinquish, and the enchantment of the brilliantly colored kopjes can always sooth the savage beast.

We managed to secure a last minute booking at the Matobo Hills Lodge and set off with hats and bird books to inspect the recently reopened and restored Lodge.

It was absolutely magical. Set amidst a magnificent 360 degree panoramic heaven and surrounded by colossal boulders and whaleback dwalas in every dramatic color combination. The base of each dwala suffused in the densely rich orange, scarlet and green branches of the mountain acacia, wild pear and the paperbark tree.

We set off for an afternoon walk to the small dam and encountered a pair of shy klipspringer and a tiny hairy caterpillar that resembled a miniature porcupine! The estate also has giraffe and kudu but they were well concealed in the dense bush and corn colored long grass surrounding the lodge.

Resting precariously above us on a giant boulder were four weary storks, on their way to or from some enchanted clime, while a pair of black eagles circled territorially over head.

The camp staff were fabulous, as anxious to pamper us as we were in need of pampering, and the food and wines were superb too.

Our forsaken land

How did our Mother Land become so merciless?
Will I contrast the Land of milk and honey to my native land?
Expelling thousands of children of soil to alien lands
In search for liberty nobility and dignity in strange land

How is it that the Authority turns a blind eye to citizens leaving?
People abandon family and friends to far distant isles
Leaving beautiful mountains, river and valleys to unknown lands
Abandoning the skies of their birth, sweet music of the birds

How can one have a pure conscience after committing a series of brutality?
A place pregnant with waters of fear and death, closing eyes is not an option
Sleeping is no longer soothing for tomorrow's hard work
Survival depends on subjective democratic views

Poetry By: Phumulani Mlilo (1988-)

Stay blessed

THE EAGLE HAS LANDED
Thursday 2 May in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
When the Germans discover that Winston Churchill is scheduled to spend a weekend in a country home in Norfolk, they plan to kidnap him. Heinrich Himmler (Donald Pleasence), under orders from Hitler, assigns Nazi colonel Max Radl (Robert Duvall) the task of sneaking the English-hating Irishman Liam Devlin (Donald Sutherland) into the British countryside and arranging for a task force to be parachuted into the English country town of Sudley Constable, under the command of Colonel Kurt Steiner (Michael Caine). Larry Hagman (pre J.R.days!) is the pompous and foolhardy Colonel Pitts whilst Jenny Agutter contributes the love interest and icy Jean Marsh puts in a cold blooded display as a Nazi sympathiser. Admission: $3.00 [free to film members]

VERDI RIGOLETTO
Friday 3 May in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
This extraordinarily powerful production by Jean-Pierre Ponnelle of Verdi's dark tragedy was filmed on location and captures all the drama and colour of Renaissance Italy. It features Ingvar Wixell as the hunchbacked court jester (he also doubles as Monterone), Edita Gruberova as his beautiful but ill-fated daughter and Luciano Pavarotti as the lecherous Duke of Mantua. Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members] Supper available during the interval.

THE RING WITHOUT WORDS & SMETANA Ma VLAST
Friday 10 May in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
The Prague Spring Festival always begins on 12 May with a performance of Smetana's Ma Vlast [My Country]. The work is a daunting challenge even for seasoned professional orchestras, but two years ago to celebrate the bicentenary of the foundation of the Prague Conservatoire, the orchestra was made up of 130 conservatoire students - five harps and the rest to match! - and they produced a performance that was "above all, imbued with exceptional enthusiasm and energy". Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members] Supper available during the interval

ROSSINI: L'ITALIANA IN ALGERI
Friday 17 May in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
"L'Italiana in Algeri"was first performed 200 years ago on 22 May 1813 when Rossini was just 21 but it represents him at his very best. "Outrageous colours and incessant movement are the hallmarks of this production from the Opera National de Paris by renowned opera stage director Andrei Serban. The excellent cast of singer-actors is led by Jennifer Larmore, who is a clever, beautiful, impetuous Isabella... Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members] Supper available during the Interval

FLAGSHIP ENTERPRISES

First impressions are vital.

At the office, on the telephone, in the shop front.

We can teach your staff just how important it is to be customer friendly. Zimbabwe is set to go forward, so make sure your staff is groomed immaculately in both appearance and conduct. It takes just a quick glance, maybe three seconds, for someone to evaluate you when you meet for the first time. In this short time, the other person forms an opinion about you and your company based on your appearance, your body language, your demeanor, your mannerisms, and how you are dressed. Your staff reflects your business ethic and ability. Make sure your personnel are trained to be the best and to offer the best service. Our service is vibrant, creative, enigmatic and vital to the growth of your business.

3) Roses And Raspberries

ROSES

The Director and Staff at the Museum would like to thank the Fire Brigade for their rapid response to a smoke alert at the museum on Wednesday 24th May. Luckily there was no damage. Instalite Electricians are to also be thanked for their prompt response and for finding the fault, and for doing this free of charge as a community service.

I am so sorry to read the story about the people who picked up the kittens in the hiilside area andthe poor animals turned out to be suffering from rabies. I hope that the people concerned are okay. I wish that City Council was doing their job properly and cleaning up all bushy areas in residential suburbs. In vacant school grounds you now find mealies growing everywhere. We are paying rates but nothing is done in keeping the ares tidy and in order. Ticks are also carriers of rabies and these poor kittens might have been bitten by ticks. If they cannot keep the areas clean and neat at least spray the areas.
People that are also leaving the country should not abandon their pets, especially cats, rather have them put down if suitable homes cannot be found. I think City Council needs to jack up its ideas instead of just taking our money.

Rates payer

Raspberries
With reference to the comments about rabies in the last Morning Mirror, warnings were made in Morning Mirrors No.525 and 526, by VAWZ. I know it referred to Harare, but we live in Africa where rabies is endemic. There have always been out breaks of rabies in Bulawayo and surrounding areas, I have heard of both cattle and a horse contracting the virus in the last 18 months. Please educate your children about this problem and do not let them pick up kittens, puppies etc unless you know where they are from. I speak from experience, I was badly bitten by an injured dog I was trying to save I also had to have rabies injection which at the time had to be sourced outside the country, very scary and expensive.

As to the authorities not notifying the public, in the last few weeks I have seen a rather graphic poster of a dog with rabies put out by the Veterinary department.

If you find animal's that you do not know their origin or an animal that is ill contact the SPCA or the Government Veterinary Department, they are both very helpful. If it is a wild animal e.g. a jackal then contact National Parks.

Rabies is deadly, do not risk your life. Keep your own pets up to date with their jabs, cats are becoming more vulnerable due the genet cats encroaching on our suburbs to find food.
Another concerned resident.

Wankie Friends & Trivia.

I lived in South Africa (since 1982 - from Zimbabwe) but now I live in Australia.

I'm thrilled to tell you Wankie Friends & Trivia is still going strong - we celebrate our 5th birthday on 19th May. The approaching June issue, like all previous June issues will be dedicated to the Wankie Mine Disaster of 6th June 1972, it touched so many of us, we lost family, friends, neighbours, colleagues.

I was wondering if you are likely to mention the Disaster in your newsletter, I also wonder if any of your readers are likely to share their experience/memories of that day.

I would love to hear from anyone who has something to say about that day franky0410@yahoo.com

Twalumba the RHINO made from Recycled cans, left Victoria Falls yesterday with a send off and a blessing from Chief Mvuthu and the Victoria Falls community. Last night Twalumba stayed at the Painted Hunting Dog project in Hwange. This is a fantastic project, looking after a beautiful wildlife species.

Today Twalumba is on her way to Bulawayo via Lupane where she will visit the Environment Africa team and the Lupane residents.

In Bulawayo Twalumba is being received by the National Parks and Wildlife Authority on their ZITF stand where she is the guest of honour at their Media cocktail tonight.

To celebrate the anniversary of the first rhinos ever trans-located in South Africa half a century ago, and in support of the fight against the poaching of these animals, the Rhinose Foundation has launched Rhinose Day.

Whether you drive a macho 4x4 or a slick sedan, these plastic Rhinoses will mark you as a friend of the rhino. Made from recycled and recyclable polypropylene, the Rhinose has four attachment points enabling it to be securely fixed to your vehicle's grille with cable ties.

Rhinose Day is a joint initiative of three non-profit conservation organisations: the Rhino Action Group Effort (RAGE - a LeadSA initiative), the Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) and the Rhinose Foundation... Now we all know this is a South African initiative, but at least it means the Rhino's may be truly saved from extinction.

Is a program designed to help parents in understanding their children and getting them to cooperate. It is disciple that makes sense. The program has been around for a number of years. 25 years ago when my children were young. I found myself screaming and shouting to get my children up in the morning or to do their homework. I felt angry and frustrated because they would not listen. The program has been revised on a number of occasions and l am running the latest one.
