How many layers

When one is born in the tropics, one gets out of bed and puts on exactly 2 items of clothing!! Shorts and shirt! No need for shoes, no need for socks. As one gets older maybe a couple of underwear garments appear necessary, and one's mum always yells 'have you got a hat'!

Our backyards provided every bit of entertainment we ever needed. Trees which needed climbing to get the apples and oranges, fences to balance on and walk along, taps from which to drink, veggie gardens upon which to snack, shade to rest in, mud to play in, wide yards as soccer fields, washing lines as badminton nets.

A lengthy visit to the Arctic Circle has been very stressful for us Africans!! 'Sweden has a glorious week of summer' the pundits say, and the remaining 51 weeks require a lot of effort!!

The amount of effort one spends dressing and undressing oneself is exhausting. One is never 'cold' in Sweden one is merely 'badly dressed'!!

The homes are divine, as warm as toast, but stepping out of doors requires massive effort. The golden rule is 'three layers' meaning fine pure merino long johns and long sleeved top, two pairs of wool socks, a warm woollen jumper preferably cowl necked, a pair of warm lined trousers, and on top of that snow and rain proof leggings. The outer coat is a full length 100% down parka with a hood, although a double lined woollen beanie is also advisable plus a woolen scarf or even a Balaclava !! Boots, fur lined, waterproof and slip proof !!

Give yourself half an hour for this exercise, or if you have a five year old, count on about an hour!! That requisite snow suit requires a lot of cajoling, pushing and pulling!!

Ah but now back in Bulawayo and happily clad in shorts and tee shirts once again!!


Nicolas Dean - God Bless you from Nozizwe Mother of Nations. We would love your e mail address for a thank you letter from Nozizwe.

For those of us living beyond Zimbabwe's borders, what a joy it is to receive the MM.
Our minds are jogged. The smell of Downing's, wet school shoes in the one pm rain, hot tar. A spectrum of memories filled with Matopos and New Year. Ball room dancing at the City Hall, tea and cake at Haddon's.
We learn of the latest game count at Hwange or remember the Termite Colonies of Suburbs. Still more has shown us the ups and downs of living in foreign lands both warm and artic.
With each new arrival of our MM, home flows over us. A treasured mantle that drifts gently down, down, into our toes. Listening quietly, we can hear those Jacarandas popping underneath.
More importantly the MM delivers to us real-time home. Now-now home. It's happening tomorrow home. A glimpse into the Bulawayo day. With musical performances, black gold compost and the SPCA.
In this new year of 2022, I would like to show appreciation to Team MM. For their continued selfless efforts, hard work and dedication to the MM cause.

Know this. Your work brings smiles and a tear every Tuesday.

With special wishes from Tony and Annetta Holmes (SA)

After more than a decade of false starts and several potential directors, the hit Lloyd Webber musical finally made it to the big screen with Alan Parker at the helm and Madonna in the coveted title role of Argentina's first lady, Eva Peron. Released 25 years ago on Christmas Eve 1996, it was a triumph of production design, costuming, cinematography and epic-scale pageantry and follows the rise of Eva Peron to the level of supreme social and political celebrity in the 1940s. Peron was only 33 when she died but she was instrumental in the political success of her husband, Juan Peron (Jonathan Pryce) and was also a supremely tragic figure whose life was essentially hollow at its core despite the lavish benefits of her nearly goddess-like status.
- Director Alan Parker's visuals enliven the music, and Madonna and Banderas bring it passion. By the end of the film we feel like we've had our money's worth. [Chicago Sun-Times]
- This brash, glitzy, energetic entertainment has the power to hold an audience enraptured. [ReelViews]
- A pretty much ideal big-screen adaptation of the material, which becomes convincingly cinematic. [Groucho Reviews]
Admission: US$2.00 [free to Film Members]

The much-loved story of Cinderella has captured hearts and minds for centuries and this historic colour recording from 1969, full of dreams and magic, shows why. Infused with the drama of Prokofiev's luscious score, the tale of transformation provided creative inspiration for Frederick Ashton's acclaimed first full-length ballet. His enchanting production stands as a showcase of choreographic mastery and features one of The Royal Ballet's most celebrated partnerships with Antoinette Sibley as Cinderella and Anthony Dowell as the Prince. Ashton's distinctive theatricality is also revealed in his legendary cameo as one of the Ugly Sisters opposite Robert Helpmann. A collector's item for ballet lovers of all ages!
- Cinderella may be Sergei Prokofiev's most accessible ballet, both musically and visually, and in the hands of a master choreographer, it can be a thrilling experience. And so it is with this 1969 Royal Ballet performance, with then-resident genius Frederick Ashton pulling out all the stops in a staging guaranteed to please fans and win new converts. [Amazon.com]
- Ashton's enchanting production stands as a showcase of choreographic mastery and features one of the Royal Ballet's most celebrated partnerships with Antoinette Sibley as Cinderella and Anthony Dowell as the Prince. Ashton's distinctive theatricality is also revealed in a touching and hilarious cameo as one of the Ugly Sisters opposite the equally comic and mesmeric Robert Helpmann [IMZ]
- Recommended with total delight. [Fanfare]
Admission: US$2.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

In a career-defining case, DCI Roz Huntley (Thandie Newton) is under intense pressure from her superiors to apprehend a serial murderer after months of fruitless investigation. When a young man is charged doubts around his guilt lead the chief forensic investigator to AC-12. Is Roz ignoring forensic evidence that might prove the young man's innocence AC12's Supt Hastings places Kate Fleming undercover inside Roz's team and with Steve Arnott piling on pressure from the outside, Roz is forced to act decisively. A mother of two, Roz will do anything to stop her life from unravelling. As suspicions mount and the case becomes ever more complex, AC12 themselves come under threat.
- Out of nowhere, the tempo suddenly rocketed from quietly-creeping tension to brain-jangling red alert. [The Arts Desk]
- What can I say WOW!! - best series ever, impossible to equal, superb nail-biting drama, so many twists. [Amazon]
- This is less like watching TV, and more like being abducted by it, cuffed, then dragged along. [Telegraph]
- We're less than 10 minutes in, and I'm a wreck. He likes to start a series using jump leads and a defibrillator, does LoD creator Jed Mercurio. [Guardian]
Admission: US$2.00 - or $5.00 the series [free to Film Members]

Hansel and Gretel is generally regarded as a children's opera; but, in fact, it is a masterpiece to be enjoyed by listeners of all ages. Humperdinck was heavily influenced by Wagner and in Hansel and Gretel he produced an opera in the Wagnerian style but more accessible than Wagner's operas in length and humanity and, as one critic remarked, 'this is one of the few operas ever written which is beautiful from beginning to end'! Although often associated with Christmas, perhaps began because of its premiere on 23 December 1893 (and this performance from the Met comes from Christmas Day 1982!), it was one of the Covid casualties, initially scheduled to commemorate the centenary of Humperdinck's death on 27 September 1921.
- The Metropolitan Opera's lovely Christmas day performance, sung in intelligible English, is miles above the video competition. Look no further. [MusicWeb International]
- Cheerfully evokes a magic world of woodland sprites and candy dreams.. [New York Post]
- Delightful production with two great leads who actually convince that they are children. This is very much a chocolate box production (which is probably what the composer intended) and, if you like your Humperdinck with plenty of sugar which I do, then this is marvellous. [Amazon]
Admission: $2.00 [free to Red Carpet Members]

The concert is conducted by Bernard Haitink, one of the great conductors of the last half-century who died aged 92 in October last year. The programme includes:
The concert marked the 150th anniversary of Chopin's death in the magnificent setting of Krakow's Gothic St Mary's Basilica and included a performance of his Second Piano Concerto with Emanuel Ax as the soloist. To a certain extent, the concert also marked a return to the pianist's roots, for he had been born in Lviv as the son of Polish Jews and lived for a time in Warsaw before emigrating to Canada with his parents in 1959.
The programme also includes Schumann' 'Spring' Symphony - Schumann admitted to having written the work 'in that first flush of spring that arguably continues to inspire man even in ripe old age, overwhelming him anew each year'. And a basilica naturally demands the performance of sacred music, and so Christine Schafer opened the concert with two sacred works by Mozart, the motet Exsultate, jubilate and Et incarnatus est from the Great Mass in C minor. As always, her lean and agile soprano voice is perfectly suited to the Salzburg composer's music.

3) Congratulations

4) Condolences/In Memoriam/Wreath Funds


It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Marian Moloney, who died peacefully on 2 January in Ireland. Marian is sadly missed by her beloved son Luke, granddaughter Marie, brothers John and Eugene, sisters-in-law, extended family, and many friends.

Ar dheis De go raibh a ainm dilis.
Born at Redbarn, Youghal, Ireland in 1941. Marian grew up in Cork, one of six children, where she was educated by the Ursuline Sisters at St Angela's College. She trained as a nurse at Guy's Hospital in London, and went on to complete further midwifery training in Belfast. In 1969, she travelled to Zambia, where she worked in the mine hospital at Mufulira, and where she met and married her husband Kevin. Marian established a much-needed blood transfusion service in the Midlands in Gwelo in 1975-8, and later worked at the Isolation Hospital in Gwelo, at QueQue Hospital, at the Avenues Clinic in Salisbury, at the Mater Dei Hospital in Bulawayo, and for the Bulawayo Municipality's District Nursing Service. Following a back injury in the early 1980s, Marian re-trained and worked with Webb Low and Barry from 1984 until around 2002, where she worked tirelessly for others in administering Deceased Estates and caring for and counselling the bereaved. She volunteered her time to help with Island Hospice.

Marian was a friend to all, and gave so much of her time and energy to her family and to friends, and to the poor, the sick, and the needy. She was always thinking about and caring for others, Marian was selfless and generous to a fault.
She brought light and comfort to all of us: her family and friends were extraordinarily blessed to have her in their lives. The world is a poorer place without her.


Royston Patrick Purchase

Royston Patrick Purchase, father of Susan, Helen, Rosalyn, Colin and Duncan, husband of the late Andre' Diana for 52yrs, and companion of Christina, passed away peacefully in Bulawayo on 3rd January 2022, aged 90. He will be remembered as a lively character with his own special form of wit and humour, for his many colourful personal historical anecdotes, and for his profound love of Africa. As a hard-working father who always wanted the best for his children, Roy worked for the PTC telecommunications for over 30 years, with postings in Bulawayo, Zvishavane, Hwange and Harare. He was an active Rotarian and Freemason, a bell ringer and a stamp-collector, very proud of his collection of stamps that portray the changing politics and history of the country we now know as Zimbabwe. We are grateful to Cathy Sharp, Verity Mundy, the Bulawayo Help Network, and all at Garden Park for their support at this time.


"Maureen and I were sad to hear of the passing of Frank Noble. Frank and I were the best of friends, spending very many hours together piping and travelling across the country to play the pipes, to Gwanda, Wankie, Livingstone, Kariba, Harare, Kwe Kwe and Gweru. Happy hours were spent together talking piping and I learnt a lot about his life and interests.

After a tough youth in war time Port Glasgow, to a start at the bottom of the railways shovelling coal, Frank ever intent on bettering himself joined Rhodesia Railways where he rose to the top as a Liner driver. Then on a matter of principle he resigned, and went on the employment market with the sole skill of locomotive driving having left effectively the only employer of locomotive drivers in the country.

Seemingly the only industry willing to take him on was Life Insurance sales. This was in the day and age when many Life sales teams would take on anyone to sink or swim in the business. Many to join, would sell policies to all their friends and when the contacts and income ran out that would drift off elsewhere, the only winners being the insurance company with the policies.

The winners in the profession were all well connected with well heeled contacts. Not so Frank. He found a totally neglected market, the railwaymen! As they could think only of policies in the hundreds of dollars not hundred of thousands they were overlooked by the high flyers, and Frank became as he would say their "Inshoorance man." So successful was Frank, selling hundreds and hundreds of policies so that he was elected to the Life Insurance Industries 'International Million Dollar Club' attending their annual convention in the Caribbean!

Frank was much more to his clients than just a life Insurance salesman. He did their tax returns for many of them, wrote their wills and helped them in may ways, and like his piping, never charging them for his services. He confided in me that the advantage in doing their tax he could see when they could afford another policy!

Frank was a fine piper, although not a reader of pipe music. He had the knack of picking up tunes by ear and playing them with the correct grace notes in the correct places. I learnt much about pipe music phrasing from Frank. During National Service with one of the great Scottish Regiments, I think it was the Black Watch, he played for their band at a time when none of the regimental bands would take on National Service pipers. To Frank, a prohibition was a challenge! It so happened that the Regimental Sargent Major and Frank had been Boys Brigade colleagues, and on day one Frank saw this RSM on the parade ground and greeted him by his first name. (It is rumoured that even RSM's wives and children are fearful of using their first names). Long story short, they struck a bargain, Frank addressed him a "Sir" thereafter and Frank had a place in the band!

Frank's dreadful cars were legendary, forever breaking down. On one occasion his car died on the way home from a wedding where he had played the pipes. When he recovered the car the next day, he found his valuable set of family heirloom silver mounted pipes had been stolen from the car boot. The thief seeing the box stole it only to find he had stolen an item with virtually no market! One of Franks grateful clients tipped off Frank and Frank bought them back with the money from the insurance. The method of return was so dramatic that Lee Childs would have been proud to include it in a Jack Reacher novel!

Frank was married to the loveliest of ladies, Doris. She was ever so kind and never complained about her hyper active husband. She bravely endured her physical disabilities in latter life without complaint. She was so brave. We were so sad when living in Botswana we hear of her passing and from Franks call, we could tell that he was bereft .

My last engagement before climbing on a plane to start a new life in New Zealand was to lunch with Frank at Jan Smuts Airport. I was very disappointed when Frank did not show. Very unlike Frank. I later learnt the he was in hospital with a minor cardiac attack earlier in the day.

Recently I have been making enquiries in Zimbabwe and the UK trying to find Frank. Sadly I looked in the wrong places, and now it is too late.

Sincerest condolences to Cheryl and family and Franks twin granddaughters.

19) Seeking Friends

Seeking information on Dr. Wendy Dawson and I suspect that there wouldn't have been too many folks with that name and title, in Zimbabwe back then. I know it's a terribly long shot but she was the only lead to the couple who had been my host, during a visit, namely Chris and Brian Paddy. Aside from recalling that Wendy was an MD and that she had some connection to Nyanga and that her son and daughter-in-law were emigrating to Trinidad, back in 2004, I'm afraid I can't offer any more clues (though her email address was wendz@mango.zw).

If, by the most remote of possibilities, you would have any record, or recollection, of the above, I would be most grateful for anything you might be able to provide. It's a very long shot that any of the three of them are still alive and, if they are, that they would be in Zimbabwe, but I'll discontinue my search if there is the sad news that it was the same Wendy who passed.

I wonder if you might be interested in an article I wrote for the Britain-Zimbabwe Society recently. It is about two photograph albums that I found at a book fair in London and I am keen to make contact with the families of anyone in the photographs so that I can share them. The pictures are on Flickr at https://flic.kr/s/aHsmWYdYDc and https://flic.kr/s/aHsmWVUt8m.
