Morning Mirror Edition 609 - 22/10/2014


In this edition


1) Editorial

I FEEL NEGLECTED!

All of my buddies have been fined by the traffic police for inane, inconsequential reasons, but they let me through the roadblocks every time.

As a nation we are all fuming, and I need to have my 'vent' too!!

Some of my buddies have even had their vehicles clamped!! Heaven help the fellow who decides my vehicle needs clamping in this heat!!

Now I know I am compliant in all things -I have all the right stickers on my window, I have no outstanding traffic fines. In fact I am squeaky clean, but spoiling for a fight.

When I do get stopped, it's my Southern Rhodesia Drivers license, issued in the dark ages, that renders the policemen speechless. Most of them are so young, they have never even heard of Southern Rhodesia!! With an incredulous 'eeish' I am waved through, they have never met anyone so old driving a car probably!!

My photo also leaves them astounded, taken at the tender age of sixteen, with a bouffant hairdo, I look like a cross between Dusty Springfield and Lady Gaga!!

However they did grab me once, I must confess, for the most ridiculous reason in the world!! Instructed to stop at a 'roadblock' on the Kezi road, the engaging gentleman, (who had not yet been to the 'smiling lessons' offered by the ZRP, strolled in a dilatory fashion around my vehicle. Unable to find anything to write home about, he ordered me to open my bonnet!! (aka hood)

Ever compliant although annoyed, I obeyed and he suddenly lunged into the engine and like a maniac started to wrench violently at my car battery!!

Now it's a modern car, it had all the bells and whistles, but he managed to, in his exertions, establish the most minuscule movement!

Aahaa !! He pronounced triumphantly, your battery is loose - twenty dollars please!!! Of course it was loose he had just shaken it loose!! 'And' he said as proud as punch, 'it does not have a clamp over the top, that another twenty!!'

HeeHoo tried in vain to explain that cars younger than the average Zimbo car, did not require a clamp, in fact clamps were not advisable from an electrical conduit point of view, but our erstwhile fellow was not to be deterred. He needed a lift to the nearest police station, and we either coughed up the fine, or we had to accompany him 'back to the office'!!

So perhaps I am not so squeaky clean after all In fact my battery now has a squeak as a result of that ferocious assault upon it!!

An informative talk for all Bulawayo residents on 'Computer Mapping at Bulawayo City Council'
by Dr Gary Hunter from Australia on Wednesday 22nd October 2014 at 1.00pm at the Natural History Museum.

Dr Hunter has been brought to Bulawayo for six months by the Australian and German governments to train local staff and improve the use of Geographic Information Systems (also known as GIS) across all Departments at the Bulawayo City Council. In addition to mapping the city's assets such as street lights, roads, water and sewer networks, the computer mapping technology employed by Dr Hunter also stores critical information about these assets such as their condition. This allows long-term management and maintenance plans to be developed and implemented. The use of GIS will also help the city improve service delivery and find missing revenue.

PERFORMING ARTS BULAWAYO AND THE ACADEMY

MY FAIR LADY
Thursday 23 October in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
The film of My Fair Lady was released fifty years ago on 21 October 1964 and
a 'restored' version issued thirty years later. What else is there to
say ... Roger Ebert perhaps:
'"My Fair Lady" is the best and most unlikely of musicals, during
which I cannot decide if I am happier when the characters are talking or
when they are singing. The songs are literate and beloved; some romantic,
some comic, some nonsense, some surprisingly philosophical, every single one
wonderful. The dialogue by Alan Jay Lerner wisely retains a great deal of
"Pygmalion" by George Bernard Shaw...
Admission: $3.00 [free to film members] Supper available from 6.15 p.m.

ROSSINI: OTELLO
Friday 24 October in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
'Otello' is one of Rossini's very finest opera but it's not performed nearly
as often as it deserves, largely because of the difficulty of getting three
top-notch tenors in one place at one time. Rossini's first two acts are in
a fairly traditional style but in the third act 'he seems to enter a whole
new world of freely flowing dramatic expression, carried by intensely
emotional music in which the composer and the bard seem joined at the hip in
a hair-raising finale that rivals even Verdi's masterful tragedy.' [Bruce
Scott, World of Opera].
Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]
Dinner available during the interval ($10.00)

THE TUDORS: SERIES 2
Thursdays 30 October &and 7 & 14 November
in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
In the second series of 'The Tudors', Henry moves quickly to embrace
Lutheran ideas, break with the Catholic Church, and marry Anne Boleyn in a
secret, private ceremony, but his decisive changes and new loyalty oath pit
him against his chancellor and long-time mentor Thomas More.
Admission: $3.00 [free to film members]. Supper available from 6.15 p.m.

VERDI: FALSTAFF
Friday 31 October in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
Verdi wrote Falstaff at the ripe old age of 77, and he brought to it a
lifetime of stagecraft and a profound love of Shakespeare but with
'Falstaff' he was actually venturing onto fresh ground as his only other
comedy had been written fifty years earlier.
Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]. Dinner available during the
interval ($10.00)

The award recognises her 'extraordinary contribution to the defence of journalists and freedom of the press', noting that 'she has been imprisoned [in Zimbabwe] for her work multiple times, yet continues to represent defendants she feels have been victimised by the government.'


Raspberries to the Bulawayo community for not supporting the Ascot Public Library. This essential resource is in danger of closing down due to arrears in their rental (they've been given 90 days). Please Bulawayo, support your library and keep it open for the benefit of all.

Good morning. Warning to all. Yesterday I had two men at my gate asking if I had a certain type of plant, one that I had never. heard of before.

Please beware that this could be a new way of gaining access to your property.

Welcome to the Scottish Diaspora!

A project to involve communities around the world in the celebration of Scottish heritage and culture.

Scots have migrated all over the world and have often had a profound impact on the areas where they settled. This project will see 25 such communities documenting their Scottish connections on a series of embroidered panels. Their combined stories will pay homage to the incredible determination and courage of Scots over the centuries.
Led by the team behind the magnificent Battle of Prestonpans Tapestry, the Scottish Diaspora Tapestry is to be created by volunteers in communities across the globe. It will be assembled and displayed in Scotland as part of the 2014 Homecoming celebrations.

DOWNLOAD our latest flyer for more information!

The Scottish Diaspora Tapestry is the creation of Prestoungrange Arts Festival in Prestonpans with key support from Barons Courts of Prestoungrange & Dolphinstoun, hundreds of stitchers and Scotophiles globally, CreativeScotland, the Scottish Government's Diaspora Division, VisitScotland, EventScotland, University of the West of Scotland, and Brd na Gaidhlig. Copyright rests with Prestoungrange Arts Festival.

Whitestone School
Resource Centre Project

You will no doubt have seen our earlier appeal for donations towards the building of the Resource Centre Project. Progress has been slow but positive, so much so that a start has been made. The building area has been cleared and tenders have gone out.

As a precaution we have asked for two tenders, one for the two storey building and one for a single storey building with a view to adding the second storey at a later stage. We have received pledges of over $20 000 so far! Thank you! Companies in Bulawayo have also indicated that they will assist in kind once they have seen the bill of quantities. Thank you again!

To those who have already assisted with this project we are deeply grateful. For those of you who are still thinking about it, we will be most grateful for your support. Any contribution will be joyfully received.

It is our intention to acknowledge every donor on a brass plaque to be fixed permanently to a wall in a prominent position in the Resource Centre.

Already schools from across the country have expressed their delight at this initiative. At the moment the 'Adventure into Learning' program is in full swing with groups visiting the school on a regular basis. For many, not only have they taken advantage of what is on offer through 'Adventure into Learning' but they have also discovered the Matopos which, as a matter of interest, has been declared a 'World Heritage Site'!

Thank you


My name is Kotie Prinsloo and my brother Piet and I have been researching the
family tree of our Prinsloo origin for the past couple of years. I am a member of the
genealogical society of South Africa.

I could not find my great grandfather's eldest brother, Willem Petrus, in any records
in South Africa. The last that I have of him was when he signed for his heritage from his
mother in 1881. (He might have died as a prisoner of war in India during the ABO, but
I am not sure). He signed later than his brothers, and I take it as an indication that
he signed when he returned from somewhere. He could have been a big game hunter
like his father. Him, and his descendants, are all I need to complete our branch.
Last year I saw the name, and the people came from Gwelo Rhodesia. The man
just said they "were orphans and he did not know".

I googled Prinsloo and Gwelo and all I could find was the Prinsloo children of Henry Long.
Were they adopted by Henry Long, or did he marry a Prinsloo widow with children
I want to ask one of these children if they knew who were their Prinsloo father (and his wife)
Do you have any idea where I could get any information I saw in one of your letters that
Peter was in Australia, but the e mail address provided, was no longer valid.

29) TIDBITS


Bulawayo Reminisced
The braais and the fun - our precious days in the sun!
Electric Circus and Marjorie's - tjoling with our buddies
Fritz after midnight - steak rolls and fights
The guys drag- racing - in the dead of the night!
Drive-ins, the movies, that our folks couldn't deck
Of Course we were all trying to shape - what the heck!
The Palace hotel with Mike Stewart and his guys
And the hangovers we would try from our parents to hide
New Year at the Fountain - then onto Rhodes Grave
Here we would watch the sunset, and honour the brave!
But they were idiots - my brother was for sure!
To try drive up on worldsview-his truck could not endure!
But he was young - was going to do this whatever!!!
And one of the things that I will remember for ever!!'
The 'surf ' in the fountain - the Centenary Park lights
The times at Gondies and the ladies nights.
So glad I have these memories to keep
And as I am older - they help me sleep !
Because I had the best childhood- my memories I hold!
And I will treasure them, as I grow old!
Liz Crilly Bedford
