An Unusual River Crossing !

We went with ShewhomustwearKevlar to the Masai Mara recently for her milestone birthday. We knew it was too late to see the magical "crossing" - the migration of the wildebeest or even the birthing, but we still needed to get there!!

Something primal happens to Zimbos at this time of the year when the land is achingly dry and the long corn colored grass waves tantalizingly in the dusty wind.

There is a blue haze like a giant thundercloud, covering the horizon, miles and miles of dry earth just waiting, waiting with the promise of rain.

Vast clouds circle menacingly overhead and the air is still as though we are in the very eye of an hurricane.

We parked on the side of the Mara river, knowing we would probably not see a crossing today, even a late, small one, but the air is always filled with expectant excitement nevertheless.

Then suddenly we saw activity on the far bank! The giant crocodiles had gone downstream aways to deeper water, to sink their engorged bellies thankfully in the soft riverbanks. They were indeed enormous, filled to the brim with a feast of carcasses from the earlier gnu crossings.

But there were two young male lions perched tentatively on the edge of the river, aquiver with energy and anticipation. They patted the water several times like small children playing in a puddle, daring each other to be brave, and then they garnered enough courage, snarling and yelping, and plunged into the mighty Mara River.

It was not deep where they crossed, the river was probably at its lowest ebb, but all the same they had to swim vigorously, heads darting from side to side, jaws snapping, teeth gnashing to try and scare away any predators that could be lurking nearby.

ShewhomustwearKevlar luckily managed to catch it on film, the journalist in her works swiftly!

It took them several minutes to cross, and all the while we were urging them across, praying there were no crocs in the area, whooping and cajoling these two feisty youngsters to get safely to the other side.

Luckily they made it intact, and exhausted with their exertions they leaned on each other triumphantly, soaking wet and uncomfortable but exhilarated that they were safe and sound on the 'other' side of the river, where of course the grass is always greener!!

Wilderness is not a luxury, but a necessity of the human spirit. - Edward Abbey -

The Robin in The Apple Tree

Walking through The Orchard in late summer
I spied a flash of rusty red from my eye corner -
And slowly turned my head so as not to frighten,
But the robin bravely stood his ground, frail claws
Curved, grasping the lichened branch, bright eyes
Level with mine. He had no fear, tiny feathered thing,
Used to outstretched palms bearing scone crumbs,
Human laughter, chatter and cup clink under the trees,
And so I really watched him, delicate feather'd body
Pulsing with life, black eyes watching expectantly
In a moment which seemed to stretch till autumn.
At last I apologised for my lack of crumbs, nodding
To his avian majesty, and he was gone in a blur.

THRASHED - P.J. Odendaal
Thrashed is a roaringly funny fictional novel about a young boy growing up in Africa during the late 1990s and early 2000s. Filled with school boy pranks and humorous characters, the book will leave you with a lot of good laughs.
Working through tough family issues, amongst anecdotes that will make your sides ache, forces the author to grow up quickly leading to awkward situations. The easy pace keeps the smiles coming chapter on chapter. There is also a good deal of poetry written during the author's childhood that introduces an element of rejection & sombre reality to the otherwise light-hearted chapters. The book additionally contains a serious side-story of how the author's child is at risk at the time of writing from a potentially life-threatening, possibly genetic disorder. This causes the adopted author to seek out his biological father only to uncover a twisted tale of lies and shame.

thePoint
"A New Way Of Seeing, For A New Way Of Being"

'The quality of your attention IS the source of your greatest contribution to Life - at all times, in all places, through all circumstances, without exception' Stephen D Norval

thePoint is a 4-day adventure of self-inquiry that reveals and explores a viewpoint on Life as seen through the Mind of natural intelligence - how it informs our action and is the source of authentic and unique self expression within all human relating. This authenticity emerges naturally and spontaneously through the Power of Present Awareness - 'here i am' As the mind is the 'operating system' of your awareness, it is of particular significance to see and learn how natural intelligence illumines the mind, the intellect and, therefore, your thinking, speaking and doing. When we gain true perspective we stand firmly in the realm of the unimaginable, inspired to create the impossible. We stand rooted in purpose and depth of meaning, which gives rise to an ecstatic urgency to contribute to life and the living, personally and professionally. Seeing thePoint of it all, the unimaginable becomes possible - it's tangible! thePoint is designed as a learning experience in which you will:

Awaken a new way of Seeing for a new way of Being, Be introduced to a daily life-tool, the 'Wheel of Emergence', which is: A Consciousness-based life-skill, Made up of the 6 Fundamentals & Imperatives of conscious emergence, A practical way to engage the action of authentic self-expression, and A guideline to expressing true integrity (naturally available in all of us). Learn to hold authentic power in a way that empowers those around you. When you acknowledge your unconscious habitual mechanical patterns, you allow others to relate and identify with you. Together you co-create acceptance and trust by being able to fully listen, understand and feel. Become more skilled socially and exhibit higher emotional self-awareness, thus gaining the capacity to manage emotions more productively and direct them towards positive co-creative outcomes. Verify and ignite your natural intelligence and strengthen your capacity to stand up, speak up and show up with dignity, respect and confidence in your thought, word and deed. Be supported to participate in Emergence Explorers after completion of thePoint. This will assist your day-to-day practice of this new perspective; striking the essential balance between learning and integration.
This perspective is current, profoundly liberating and deeply encouraging - personally and professionally.
'thePoint is a perspective on life as seen in and through the mind of natural intelligence'
It is a breath of the fresh air, a breeze of simplicity in a time of increasing complexity. Join us in this exploration, embodiment of knowledge & experience:
When: 21-24 November 2013
Where: Hindu Hall, Coghlan Avenue, Khumalo, Bulawayo

PAB AND THE ACADEMY

BERLIOZ: THE TROJANS - THE FALL OF TROY
Thursday 14 November in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
'Les Troyens' ('The Trojans') was for Berlioz the work of decades and the passion of a lifetime, the culmination of his literary love affair with Virgil's Aeneid and its two tragic heroines, Cassandra and Dido. He knew that the opera was his greatest work but, unable to get it staged in its entirety, finally permitted performances of the last three acts as an independent opera, 'The Trojans at Carthage', which had its premiere 150 years ago on 4 November 1863. Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

BERLIOZ: THE TROJANS - THE TROJANS AT CARTHAGE
Friday 15 November in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
David McVicar's staging of 'The Trojans' at the Royal Opera House in June 2012 was on an enormous scale, assembling one of the largest casts ever seen at Covent Garden, and the work was given absolutely complete including the ballet sequences demanded by French Grand Opera so that with intervals it evening ran for five-and-three-quarter hours. At the Academy the opera is being shown over two evenings! Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members] Supper available during the interval.

BIRDSONG
Thursdays 21 & 28 November in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
Sebastian Faulks' epic love story set against the First World War became a modern classic when it was published in 1993. 'The BBC have made an elegiac, lyrical film (that is better than Spielberg's War Horse) ... the lush, languorous treatment was in many ways a triumph...' [Serena Davies: The Telegraph] Admission: $3.00 [free to film members]

THE HIDDEN HEART / BRITTEN: WAR REQUIEM

Friday 22 November in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
Benjamin Britten was born exactly a hundred years ago on 22 November, 2013 - St.Cecilia's Day, appropriately enough! 'The Hidden Heart' is a fascinating documentary that tells the his story, focusing on his passionate relationship both to music and with his lifelong partner Peter Pears. After the dinner interval comes the 'War Requiem', perhaps Britten's finest work. whose first performance took place in 1962 in the newly consecrated Coventry Cathedral, built alongside the ruins of the old cathedral, left as a sombre reminder of the wartime bombings. Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

EARLY WARNING!
Tuesday 3 December at 6.00 p.m. Academy Christmas Showcase
Wednesday 4 December at 6.00 p.m. Academy Christmas Showcase
Tuesday 10 December at 6.30 p.m. Carols by Candlelight

              May the African sun always shine on you

              May the visions of it's glory fill you with joy
              And may the memory of Africa be with you always.

I need to warn the public that there are many fake US dollar bills going around, in $100, $50, $20 and $10 denominations, and I have been a victim and a witness to this. If you are found trying to purchase anything with a fake note, (even if you are not aware it is fake) you can be arrested for fraud or possession of a fake note and this can be a very serious sentence. I suggest that when you are in the process of purchasing something, do not allow that note out of your sight until you have received your change and make sure you check the change that you receive.
I also suggest everyone keeps a lawyers number on their phone and if you are arrested DO NOT SAY ANYTHING to the Police until a lawyer arrives as anything you say may incriminate you further, even if you think you are trying to help them find out where you think the money came from. It will cost you in lawyers fees but it is better than being jailed for years! The Police advise that if you think you are in possession of a fake note, you should take it to the Police Station and make a report. I would also like to encourage shop owners to put up posters of what the identifying marks are on a genuine note. Often we are in too much of a hurry to check our notes but I strongly suggest you do!
Clean Up Your Dirty BenjaminsAnd the Hamiltons, Jacksons and Grants, too. Subconsciously, we think old, grimy-looking bills are worth less than clean, crisp ones. And so...we generally spend them faster and more freely, found a study published in the Journal of Consumer Research. Luckily, there's a simple solution: If possible, ask for newer bills when getting cash back.
Zesa slashes bills - DailyNews Live by John Kachembere and Roadwin Chirara 1 NOVEMBER 2013

Cash-strapped Zimbabweans are set to get relief from national power utility Zesa's decision to scrap electricity bills beginning today.

Josh Chifamba, Zesa chief executive yesterday confirmed to the Daily News that his company would not backtrack on its promise to cancel $160 from domestic electricity consumers starting November 1.

"We remain committed to fulfil our promises and I can assure you that some people have already begun to receive the adjusted electricity bills," he said.

Chifamba, however noted that the bill adjustment would be implemented in a phased approach.

"It's not possible for us to bill everyone at the same time. So others will be receiving adjusted bills in November," he said.

The Zesa boss said consumers on pre-paid meters would also have $160 credited to their accounts.

We are seeking for a good second hand computer with printer that can connect to the internet and office furniture for use in our boardroom. This will be greatly appreciated.
The Natural History Museum in Bulawayo is looking for additional information on the 'Thousand-Guinea Trophy'. We have the 9-inch brass replica that was made not long after the now lost original. It will be the centre of a new display but we have several questions not answered in Robin Rudd's book on the Show.
For how many years were small bronze replicas awarded to winners and what replaced them in later years.
Has anyone an example of one of these miniatures either to donate to the museum or allow us to get a good colour photograph.
Does any one have photographs of the awarding of the trophy? We would appreciate colour copies for the display.
Any stories about the trophy? The more we gather the better, even if not used in the actual display.
If you can assist please email us on ksf@khami.co.zw

Please note that you are required to submit a full colour photocopy of the entire current passport including all the blank pages.

If you wish to check on the status or progress of your passport application once you've submitted it, please call the Passport Information Line on +44 300 222 0000, not the Embassy.

From the Blog:-
November and December can be very hot dry, hot, debilitating in Zimbabwe - unless you have a mountain stream gushing by your doorstep.
Here in Chimanimani we are known to be somewhat off beat, refreshingly so in my opinion. Take for instance our waterfall crawl as opposed to the traditional old pub crawl. Pack your coldies, toss in some ice and a sandwich, couple of apples, bottle of wine and a swimming towel. No need for elaborate bathers - you and your friends are most likely to have your waterfall all to yourselves. When not feeling energetic enough to get up to the rivers in the Chimanimani Mountains National Park, we opt for our favourite two day waterfallcrawl (You will need a 44).
Mangowe Falls - to Tessa's Pool - to Corner Waterfalls and up to the Circle Pools back again to Bridal Veil Falls and home to Frog & Fern.
Mangowe and Tessas and a good piece of the river below Bridal Veil Falls are not inside National Parks so our dogs join us and dive right in.
There is nothing quite like the sensation of slipping under crystal clear water, letting the tingling cold of a rushing mountain stream refresh every corpuscle of your being.
Come and immerse yourself this month!!

CYANIDE - MYTHS & FACTS
by Frederick W. DeVries Chem-Mining Consulting, Ltd.

This position paper is an effort to furnish the public with facts and myths surrounding the use of cyanide in the world mining industry. References for statements herein are available from the author upon request.
CYANIDE CAN BE DEADLY: FACT
CYANIDE IN MINING HAS CAUSED WIDE-SPREAD ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE: MYTH
EATING MEAT/FISH POISONED BY CYANIDE IS DEADLY: MYTH
CYANIDE IS A FERTILIZER: FACT CYANIDE SPILLS POISON CROPS: MYTH
THERE ARE MANY ANNUAL DEATHS FROM USE OF CYANIDE AT MINES: MYTH
For explanations, please see next pages.

-2-
Because of the high profile of the word cyanide, and its popular lethal use in murder-mysteries (and, most unfortunately, as a historic intentional poison), it is difficult to discount the SENSATIONALISM frequently encountered in (a)news-media reports and (b)the use of 'cyanide' as a whipping boy for environmental activists' anti-mining agenda.
Let's continue with a few myths encountered over the last few years:
CYANIDE IS MERELY A CONVENIENCE IN RECOVERING GOLD FROM MINED ORES; OTHER METHODS ARE COMPARABLY ECONOMICAL AND EFFICIENT: MYTH
DAMS USED AS TAILINGS IMPOUNDMENTS ARE UNRELIABLE AND HAVE RELEASED DAMAGING VOLUMES OF CYANIDE: MYTH AND FACT3,5
MONITORING OF CYANIDE AT MINING OPERATIONS AND ABANDONED SITES HAS BEEN POOR: MYTH
AREAS WHERE CYANIDE HAS BEEN RELEASED REMAIN DEADLY FOR EXTENDED PERIODS: MYTH
UNINTENTIONAL RELEASES OF CYANIDE FROM MINE SITES OCCUR: MYTH AND FACT1-5
CYANIDE IS A BUILDING-BLOCK OF DNA AND IS PRESENT IN EVERYONE'S BLOOD: FACT
SURVIVING CYANIDE OVER-EXPOSURE IS LIKE ALMOST DROWNING, WITH SIMILAR AFTER- EFFECTS - USUALLY 'BAD MEMORIES'! FACT
TABLE-SALT USUALLY CONTAINS CYANIDE (IN A HARMLESS FORM) TO PREVENT CAKING: FACT
-3-
CYANIDE IS NOT CUMULATIVE, CARCINOGENIC, NOR TERATOGENIC (NO DEFORMITIES IN OFFSPRING) TO HUMANS; IT DOES NOT PROPAGATE UP THE FOOD CHAIN -- YOU CAN'T BE POISONED FROM EATING FISH OR MEAT KILLED BY CYANIDE: FACT
MAMMALS SUBJECTED TO FATAL LEVELS OF CYANIDE WILL NOT 'GO AWAY TO DIE' - CYANIDE IS RAPIDLY FATAL OR SOON METABOLIZED: FACT
CYANIDE EXPOSURE DOES NOT CAUSE DELAYED SYMPTOMS OF ILLNESS: FACT
CYANIDE ANTIDOTE KITS, PRESENT AT MINE SITES, ARE QUITE EFFECTIVE AGAINST ACCIDENTAL EXPOSURE: FACT
SURVIVORS OF ACCIDENTAL EXPOSURE SELDOM NEED ANY MEDICAL TREATMENT - EXPOSURE IS RARELY DETECTABLE AFTER 24 HOURS: FACT
CYANIDE USE IN GOLD MINING HAS CONTRIBUTED MORE THAN $50 BILLION TO U.S. GDP SINCE 1980, MAKING THE U.S.A. THE WORLD'S NO. 2 GOLD PRODUCER: FACT
FEWER THAN FOUR FATAL CYANIDE ACCIDENTS HAVE OCCURRED IN NORTH AMERICAN MINING, IN OVER 100 YEARS OF CYANIDE USE (AND BILLIONS OF POUNDS): FACT
ALTHOUGH AN ESTIMATED 80 MILLION BIRDS DIE ANNUALLY IN THE U.S. BY FLYING INTO TALL BUILDINGS, THE U.S. MINING INDUSTRY HAS SPENT MILLIONS TO REDUCE BIRD-KILLS, WHICH HAVE TOTALLED SOMEWHERE AROUND TEN THOUSAND (IN FIFTEEN YEARS)*: FACT
*One site estimated it had spent $32,000 per duck on preventatives.
