ONE HOUSE AT A TIME
JOIN THIS CAMPAIGN AND LET'S SAVE OUR NEIGHBOURHOODS ONE HOUSE AT A TIME.
Pick it up, even if you didn't drop it If everyone picked up the litter from outside their own house our streets would be cleaner. Make an effort twice a week to do this and you'll be playing a positive part in cleaning up the whole city. Make and print a few leaflets and put them in your neighbuors post box inviting them to participate.
Change needs a spark So you've picked up the litter from in front of your house, now what Take it to a safe space, somewhere where the smoke won't stink up your neighbours washing or house, and burn it. Do the same with your household rubbish AFTER you've recycled what you can. Sure burning is not the best option but dumping your waste in a public space is even worse. Until service delivery in our communities resumes, it's up to us to work out respectful ways to deal with waste management. After all, it's our rubbish, no-one else's.
Walking on broken glass Have you noticed all the broken glass on our verges, roads and pathways How about making our streets safe for our cyclists, pedestrians and our kids. Don't throw glass bottles on the road - it's just Really Ugly Behaviour. Take them home and use them in some way.. Fill it in Adopt a pothole. Not very exciting I know but hey, have you seen any municipal workers fixing them lately If we want to stop the damage to cars and combis, and avoid accidents then we are going to have to do something about the holes in our roads. They're only going to get worse. So work out a plan with your neighbours and take turns in fixing what's in front of you.
Unclog it It's the rainy season and a lot of storm water drains are clogged making the roads flooded at times and making it difficult for pedestrians. Look out for clogged street gutters especially on street corners and arrange with neighbours to remove the soil, rubble and rubbish from them. Get your hands dirty!
Switch it off! Help save electricity - that little you do get. Don't leave lights or other electrical appliances that are not in use on throughout the night. Cell phone chargers still consume electricity even when it is left in the socket with the phone disconnected. Although basic cell phone chargers don't consume enormous amounts of energy, when you add up all the cell phone chargers in the country the total energy used still amounts to significant numbers. Turn off other appliances like radios and TVs.
We realise that people occupy a variety of dwellings from shacks, to flats and that our shopping centres, which are getting grubbier by the day, represent more challenging circumstances. But in each and every case, if we don't get involved and Do Something, then things will only get worse.
BIRDS HITTING YOUR WINDOWS We thought we'd tried everything but it was still
happening, that sickening thud as yet another kingfisher or emerald spotted wood dove, amongst many others, flew into the glass.
Then I discovered something that really does work. I ordered a glass pen from Takealot and we drew vertical lines four inches apart on the inside of the windows.
Not one fatality since that day! Check it out on
I read Quentin Gibson's( Gibby)report about the Fairbridge lads with great interest. I went to Northlea School in the good old days, and remember Gibby quite clearly. I still keep in touch with Rob Williams, another Fairbridge fellow, now resident in Somerset West.
What a wonderful life we all had - cricket, swimming, tennis, table tennis, horse riding , Scottish dancing etc. Fiona Gilchrist taught a few of us to do Scottish dancing, and we performed at various functions. I well remember Ray and Joan Suttle, the two Rademeyers, Frank Herbst, the Broughtons etc
We used to thoroughly enjoy train trips to Gwelo ,Salisbury and Guinea Fowl (as they were then). The boys used climb out of the train windows into the next door compartment - the girls one -- to play cards, bingo etc.
I remember well Steve Cooper, Neil and David Dewar, Tim Donkin, Coli Kendall, Hilton Friend, Tony Carlyle, Graham and Paul Hatty, Tony de Caila, Johnny Youatt etc.
Neil Dewar was a neighbour of mine when we all lived in North End. He used to crawl through the hedge dividing our homes, and I did his French homework and he did my Maths homework.
My sister married Bill Cross ( Flower), and they live in the UK now. I am still in touch with Ted Mirtle and his wife, Margaret. They live in the Cape now and Richard Mirtle is also in SA.
After 45 years of teaching,
I have settled happily here, and see a lot of my lovely family. Ross now lives in Belfast, and Debbie just down the road in Chiddingfold.
Margi and Johnny Youatt leave NZ in April and will settle with Kelly ( Teasdale) in Midhurst. I will see lots of them, I'm sure.
Please give my regards to Gibby: once again, thank you for your efforts on our behalves.

THURSDAY 3 NOVEMBER AT 6.30 P.M. WATER FOR ELEPHANTS
Water for Elephants is a romantic drama based on Sara Gruen's best-selling 2006 novel, starring Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson, and Christoph Waltz. Jacob Jankowski (Robert Pattinson), a veterinary student, is close to graduating when a terrible tragedy forces him to leave college. With nowhere else to go, he hops on a passing train and finds it belongs to a travelling circus. Jacob takes a job as an animal caretaker and meets Marlena (Reese Witherspoon), a beautiful circus performer. Their shared compassion for a special elephant named Rosie leads to love, but August (Christoph Waltz), Marlena's cruel husband, stands in their way...
-It's a tale tastefully told and beautifully filmed. [Rotten Tomatoes]
-Brilliant film, well done, cast and crew! An evocative film full of fascinating characters, animals galore, Rob Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon as well as the amazing Christopher Walz - how could it get any better [Amazon]
-This ambitious, colourful story is consistently engaging and a treat for the eyes. [Beliefnet]
-WOW! More than I expected! Great entertaining movie for both men and women. Rob Pattinson just jumps off the screen. He is excellent in this. Christoph plays the villain magnificently. Great film with excellent cinematography and costuming. All around a must see movie. [Metacritic]
Admission: US$2.00 [Free to Film Members]
FRIDAY 4 NOVEMBER AT 6.30 P.M. DELIBES: SYLVIA
Darcey Bussell and Roberto Bolle star in Frederick Ashton's 'Sylvia', restored to the splendour of its elegant and opulent three-act form for the 75th anniversary celebrations of The Royal Ballet. Taken from Greek mythology, it tells the story of Sylvia, loved by Aminta, abducted by Orion and eventually rescued by Eros. Ashton was inspired by the music of Leo Delibes to create such great choreographic sequences as the famous Act 3 pas de deux and the mischievous role of Eros, one of the delightful, darkly comic characterisations for which Ashton became known and loved. Sylvia is a wonderful showcase for virtuosity, invention and classical beauty, the epitome of Ashton style in stage settings of great detail and painterly perfection.
-This is, quite simply, classic ballet classically staged and yet imaginative and engaging, ..this is how you update a classic without losing sight of the work's original vision! Highly and enthusiastically recommended. [Fanfare]
-Darcey Bussell enchants as the warrior nymph, Sylvia.. She is gracefully athletic especially in her dances with her two male leads: Bolle and Thiago Soares A beautiful production of this charming ballet with a wonderfully melodic score by Delibes. [Music Web International]
-This gorgeous staging of Sylvia is performed by The Royal Ballet and choreographed by the nearly legendary Frederick Ashton. No gimmicks here; merely glorious playing, dancing, and stage design. Do grab this one. [Brattleboro Reformer]
Admission: US$2.00 [Free to Red Carpet Members]
THURSDAY 10 NOVEMBER STAR WARS V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK
In the second of the original 'Star Wars' trilogy, the battle to save the galaxy from the evil Darth Vader rages on. Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) are tested in a devastating attack by the Imperial army and its AT-AT walkers. Meanwhile, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) seeks out the ancient Yoda to learn the secrets of the Jedi, secrets Luke will need when the Dark Side of the Force beckons him in a destiny-defining duel with Darth Vader.
- Dark, sinister, but ultimately even more involving than the original Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back defies viewer expectations and takes the series to heightened emotional levels. [Rotten Tomatoes]
- In many ways the new film is a better film than Star Wars, visually more exciting, more artful and meticulous in detail. [TIME Magazine]
- The deepest, darkest, most mature, and most thoughtful entry in the series. [Movie Metropolis]
- By far the best part of the trilogy, Empire is a classic that completely transcends its genre, with a reputation that can only grow and grow. [BBC.com]
- It is a visual extravaganza from beginning to end, one of the most visionary and inventive of all films. [Chicago Sun-Times]
Admission: US$2.00 [free to Film Members]
FRIDAY 11 NOVEMBER AT 6.30 P.M. MUSIC FOR REMEMBRANCE DAY: FAURE'S REQUIEM & THE WORLD ORCHESTRA FOR PEACE
For Remembrance Day, the gentlest and most consoling of requiems seems not inappropriate. It comes as part of a concert of Faure's' music that also includes the well-known Elegy for cello and other works. After the interval comes Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony which in itself has little to do with war and remembrance, though it begins in gloom and despair and ends with optimism and triumph, but this performance is given by the World Orchestra for Peace.
- This (Faure) is a disc of sublime music which receives sublime performances by totally sympathetic musicians. The recording quality offers faultless imaging and camera work and is presented in high quality sound. One cannot really ask for more and a 5 star rating seems only just.. [Amazon]
- Eric Picard gives a mesmerising account of the haunting cello Elegie... If that wasn't enough, there follows a performance of the Requiem with the sensational Chen Reiss and Matthias Goerne the equal of any I have heard live or on disc...Unmissable. [International Record Review]
- It (Tchaikovsky) is very well played, indeed, with particular attention to shifts in tempo and mood, especially in the brooding first movement, gracefully elegant in the second and third, and appropriately triumphant in the finale. [Amazon]
- This is magnificent Tchaikovsky. Gergiev is not always like this, but when he is there are few today that can touch him. [MusicWeb International]
