PROPOSED QUIZ QUESTIONS SESSIONS FOR SENIOR CITIZENS AND ANYBODY ELSE INTERESTED.
In March this year a quiz questions session took place in the beautiful surroundings of the Hillside Dams Conservancy.
Following this I got the idea to try and organise some more of these events and I put a write-up in the Morning Mirror calling for contact persons at the various senior citizens' complexes. Unfortunately nothing much transpired and being a senior citizen myself I lack the means and the energy to call on these places myself. I therefore now appeal to JUNIOR residents living close to any complexes to act as go-between to keep contact with me (e-mail) and the old folk. Please let me have your particulars !!! (Don't worry about ID number or your tax reference.......) I have discovered a very attractive and suitable place in Pembroke Place in Hillside not far off the Matopos Road.
Entry will be free and the restaurant there will provide tea/coffee to pensioners (only) at subsidised prices. The provisional date for the proposed session is Tuesday 16th November.
(It will have to be a week-day away from the busy week-end).
Time 10 - 12 am.
Directions to Pembroke Place are as follows:
From town proceed on the Matopos Road towards Cresta Churchill, turn left into either Pembroke Road of Napier Avenue and follow to the end of the road. Anybody is welcome to attend. The more the merrier,whatever age. It would be appreciated if younger people with vacant seats in their cars would give lifts to seniors without transport. Now I am signing off and am going to wait and see what happens. Yours, Dick Wisselo (a.k.a. Wiseowls) e-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org

WAKE UP PARENTS:
I do not under any circumstances claim to be the perfect parent, I also do not claim to "Know it all" when it comes to teenagers, in fact, the only thing I know about teenagers is that I was once one myself! All I know is that things are a whole lot different to when I was once a teenager. I have a lot of friends who have teenage children, and they are exactly that.. CHILDREN! So why is it that I find a good 30% of the local "watering holes" are filled with children under the age of 18!
I ask myself "WHERE ARE THE PARENTS"! WHAT ARE THEY THINKING!. Have they forgotten that Bars and Pubs are NO UNDER 18!
I Have on many occasion asked the owners of these Bars and Pubs WHY are they serving these children and I always get the same answer "We need the money, and the parents are dishing it out"! I am a 26 year old mother of a 10month old baby and I FEAR for my child's future!. I will, and am not ashamed to admit that I have a very healthy social life, HOWEVER, I know that my babies grandparents are more than capable of babysitting and in actual fact, it is much better that my child is in a safe and homely environment than at the pub. For all you who bring your 10yr old and younger children to the pub after 7pm, BE ASHAMED! That is ridiculous. That poor child should be fed and in bed by that time, even if it is a Friday and there is no school the next day!
EXTREMELY CONCERNED MOTHER
Once again, prices are creeping up in Zimbabwe. Every week, your dollar buys you less. Shop owners are entirely to blame, they should stop being so greedy by trying to make a quick buck: it is better to have a fast turnover with smaller profit margins than big profits and slow turnover. Inflation is on the up and this time it will not be as easily rectified as was the case with the Zim dollar. So when staff start demanding wage increases to keep up with price hikes, local traders will be to blame. Making a mistake is not the mistake, repeating it is.
Mrs Edna Ibbotson will be turning 101 on Wednesday 3rd November!
The residents, staff and Board of Edith Duly Nursing Home will be holding a tea party to celebrate this wonderful occasion in her honour. Would her friends please contact the Home on (09) 203022 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
HAPPY BIRTHDAY "IBBY" you are truly a Grande Dame!
CONGRATULATIONS to Mrs Ibby on her 101st Birthday!
Well done, Mrs Ibby .......what an achievement. We are so proud of you. Lots of love and congratulations from Claire, Colin and Va Anyone who would like to send Mrs Ibby an email for her birthday please send it c/o email@example.com and I will print it out for her.
5) Condolences/In Memorium/Wreath Funds
Emmett, Jim. Our sincere and heartfelt condolences to Jo, Robbie, Tom and family on the passing of our life long friend and colleague Jim - a humble and modest man with a special magic sense of humour.

If you have or know of anyone who may be able to help us please contact Ferguson . Email address: email@example.com or phone 0712666581
The pup must be able to travel across borders, so the mother's papers will need to be in order or the pup have its own papers. i.e. valid current rabies certificate.

9) Gossip Column
Located on the border of the industrial estates of Bulawayo between 13th Avenue and Josiah Chinamano Road is a fantastic
National Railways Museum
well worth a day's visit. It was officially opened on 4th November 1972.
If one is up for a brisk walk, it is enjoyable and after passing beneath a road, a path leads one to the museum. On its approach it looks like an original station and its neatness, tranquillity and displays are impressive. It is very affordable being ZAR20/adult and photographs are allowed. The only downside is the lack of souvenir and refreshment shops. There is neither any verbal commentary nor audio- impressions. The British, in their quest for the colonisation of Africa found it essential that a railroad be constructed. Cecil John Rhodes realised the importance of rail communication and for Rhodesia he envisaged two outlets to the sea. Work began in 1892 from Fontesvilla to Umtali in September 1892, and from Vryburg to Bulawayo in May 1893. Both were completed in October 1897 and February 1898, respectively. The railway network grew rapidly reaching mining areas. Prior to this the only means of transportation was the ox-wagon. The first train arrived in Bulawayo on 4th November 1897.
From 1st October 1936 the Rhodesia Railways Ltd. became the owners of the entire railway system in Rhodesia and Zambia and the Vryburg-Bulawayo section. On 1st April 1947 the Rhodesian Government acquired the assets of the Rhodesia Railways Ltd. and on 1st November 1949 the Railway became a statutory body. The name was altered to the National Railways of Zimbabwe on 1st May 1980.
There was an idea in the minds of the railway historic society that a small steam locomotive be established in a running shed on the museum grounds so that trains from yesterday can be run during special times of celebration or events. Sadly, this was never to materialise.
It is unfortunate though that there are a number of things missing including the old Rhodesian notes, medals and cups and much of the Royal utensils and cutlery. Some furniture is broken. It seems also that breaches in the fence have allowed people access to the carriages at night, and one old carriage was burnt down. Most of the carriages are in urgent need of repair, re-painting/varnishing and mopping.
I maybe wrong but I remember Christian Vigne at another location, I think it was in eight avenue. That was during the 1950's. My Dad was an avid reader, reading at lunchtime and also when he got home in the time before supper. Besides swopping books at work and buying/exchanging books secondhand from the 'Basement Bookmart in the lower Carlton Arcade, he would regularly visit, the Public Library, the Railway Club Library and Christian Vignes. I well remember the shop for the smell of coffee and the sight of people sitting around and reading!
Funny the older you get the more like your parents you become. On occasion he would pick up one of his books and put it down just as quickly with the explanation that he had read it already, having borrowed it previously. I often wondered as to how that was possible, now I confess that on occasion I do the same myself!
"An interesting fact about October 2010:
This OCT. has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays, all in 1 month. It happens once in 823 years. These are considered money bags months Based on Chinese fengshui."
July 2011 will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays, all in 1 month??? :o)
HeeHoo is a philistine how can he prefer one of those electric thingies to the joy of holding a book, curled up somewhere comfy and turning the pages and disappearing into the magic world of words...I so enjoy a good read and go to the library here every week for a bunch of books to take home and sometimes shut my eyes and pick an unknown author just to see what they are like - sometimes they are yukh but most times they open a world into something new..I read anything biographies etc etc as well as fiction.
Christian Vigne was a wonderful shop in my day too - I found my first battered copy in their sale section funnily enough for the beginning of the Morland Dynasty - a historical fiction thing but written around the correct history of the time and now I am about to read the 33rd one here ! I battled to get them through the sanctions era but had a cousin in UK who stomped around on my behalf, reading them herself first...and the author promised to bring it right into the now time and she is doing fine on that score. I write to her now too...real chatty patty with my fingers I am. I am so glad to know it is still a vibrant bookshop -- my absolute favourite place to be..
I love your newspaper and its a joy when it pops in..so thank you again

The Rhodesian Grey Scouts Reunion
November 13, 2010
Guest of Honour
Houghton Regis Town Mayor Councillor Robin Hines.
Proudly on 13th November 2010 the Rhodesian Grey's Scouts Regiment will celebrate their regimental reunion in Houghton Regis Dunstable United Kingdom with a full military band and procession through the High St., culminating in a flag lowering ceremony on the Village green. Many of the units Commanding Officers will be present and maybe for the last time the Grey's flag will be proudly lowered to finally rest as the whispers of those who sacrificed their lives for their country are remembered by those of us that remain. The march will begin at 11.00am on Saturday morning and finish with the flag ceremony on the Green and a regimental luncheon served to all those in attendance at a cost of 8.50Gbp at around 12.00pm and then its off to the pub to damp the dust. All those Grey's in attendance please dress smart and if you have a beret please use it as this is our sign of the pride we hold in the history of our unit. If you need regimental ties they can be purchased on the Grey's website. We welcome all the related families and friends and special invited guests to our parade on the day and I'm sure old friendships will be rekindled. Many berets and badges have been bought and those that still need better jump in quick as things are running out fast. Thanks to everyone who has helped make this an event to look forward to and if you need any further help or assistance the number to call is below.

21) Seeking Friends
22) Situations Vacant
To whom it may concern:
My mother, who lives on a large property in Hilton in Kwazulu Natal, is 84 and aging rapidly, but is loathed to go into a retirement village. She has been fairly ill recently and currently has a full time Carer looking after her. We would like her to be able to stay in her home, if it is at all possible. Unfortunately the Carer is really there to help her get around the house and is not really equipped to help my Mother manage her home. I have heard that there are a number of Zim couples at about retirement age who are keen to come down to SA, but who don't have the resources to purchase and set up a home down here.
I am looking for someone like this to come and live on my Mother's property and to help her manage her home. Hopefully this would give them a chance to set themselves up down here. I was wondering if you know anyone who may be interested in this opportunity. What we are looking for is basically as follows:
Preferably a semi retired or retired couple. We would consider a single woman. Age 55 to 65 Experience with running a large home with Domestic servants etc Interested in Gardening and the outdoors The job would entail helping to handle things like the Domestic servants, paying bills, basic maintenance, some driving, ensuring the security is in place, helping with shopping etc. The house has a self contained flatlet with carport, separate kitchen, large lounge, bathroom and bedroom. There would be access to the whole of the 2.5acre property. We would be offering a small package of rent, electricity and water free, plus a small monthly retainer, but to be honest the main benefit is the lifestyle. If it could work for my Mother and for some couple up in Zim who need a break then that would be wonderful. Thank you
