It is worth reminding ourselves that what brings us the greatest joy and
satisfaction in life
are those actions we undertake out of concern for others.
DALAI LLAMA
++++++
There's no need to play the `what if' game. The past is gone, and no
energy you expend
will ever change it. The future is in God's omnipotent hands, so you're
free to focus on the
present. Your job is to love God with all your heart, soul, and mind,
trusting Him to forgive
the past and transform the future. Martyred missionary Jim Eliot once
wrote, "Wherever
you are, be all there," not living in the past and not fantasising about
the future. God
wants you in the present because that's where His grace will flow.

Sometimes our fate resembles a fruit tree in winter. Who would think that
those branches
would turn green again and blossom, but we hope it, we know it. --Johann

==========
What would I say to Paddy Vickery if I were to meet her right now ?

I would say "thank you for giving me a love for learning and literature,
second to none....."

Do you remember Paddy Vickery ?
Any girls attending Eveline School in the fifties, sixties and seventies
will never forget her.

Paddy is living in the UK right now, in Surrey to be exact, goodness
knows how old she is
but she is sprinting off this month to visit relatives in Cape Town, I am
sure she is
probably just as spry as she was when she was teaching us reprobates way
way back.

It was Audrey Edington, an English teacher at Girls' College , who made
such an impression
on my own daughters, and it was Paddy Vickery, also an English teacher,
who made such a
difference to my life.

It all started with "The Wind in the Willows" by Kenneth Graham.

Mrs Vickery used to read it to us when we were in Form two. That voice !!
it was glorious,
full, sweet, resonant, so delicious to listen to, and the perfect way to
start an undying love
for all that is Englsh and all that is English Literature.

As we paddled along the river bend with Paddy, a longing to hear more,
read more, and
to learn more was instilled in each and every one of us.

With Toad, Ratty, badger and Otter we were transported into realms of
delight that no
modern child will probably ever know....

No matter how hot, no matter how tired, as teenage girls, we lived from
English lesson to
English lesson.

Audrey Edington is off to the U.K. too soon.

Why are we losing our most precious of all resources, the men and woman
educators who
made the difference in our lives, and for whom we must thank more than
words can say.

No thanks can ever be enough for everything we ourselves have done,
learned , said and
written, thanks to very special people like Paddy Vickery ad Audrey
Edington.

MATRONS WISH LIST !

Have you ever seen a bar of Zimbabwe Soap ? It is quite different to any
other soap you are
used to....
First Wold Soap is generally oval shaped, comes in a variety of delicate
colours, perfumes
and sizes and holds nicely in the palm of the hand.

Zimbabwe soap on the other hand has character !! The colours used in the
soaps are
vibrant to say the least "Screaming Pink" ""Awful Orange" "Blasphemous
Blue" and "Ghastly
Green "......(apologies to the manufactures ... I know darn well that
beggars should not be
choosers !!

The sizes of the soaps are interesting, many Zimbabweans prefer a
colossal bar of soap for
some reason, so large that if it drops on your toe in the shower, it is
instant
hospitalisation.

HeeHoo likes the latter variety, far too large for my delicate paw, so I
have to keep a left-
over piece of his soap nestling on a ledge for personal usage.

The perfumes too, are larger than life, maybe that's why one of the
brands is called
"Lifebuoy" ? No there is nothing, absolutely nothing delicate about a
Zimbabwe soap
perfume. You can smell us coming for miles !!

But the most peculiar characteristic of a Zimbabwe bar of soap, is that
it has wings !! Yes,
one can think fondly of our soaps, until they are absolutely unobtainable
on any shelf in
any shop in any city....

Then one breathes fire at the attributes of the Soap.

The ever so posh Bulawayo Club, (wot even entertained Her Majesty once !!
) Has taken to
cutting the bars of soap into miniscule pieces in the hope that they
might last a little
longer (a retrogressive step in any other country I agree, but quite
necessary in this
country of winged soap.)

You see, soap is at a premium, so no matter how many pieces an hotel, a
club or a
restaurant or a nursing home, lays out carefully in the bathroom, it will
disappear in a
flash and a blur !!

Now Matron at the Edith Duly Nursing Home has a wish list, and as far as
we are able, her
Committee tries to make Matron's wishes come true.
And so to this end, i am appealing to people who live in countries where
the their Soaps
do not grow wings, to send us some heavy metal liquid soap dispensers
that we can fix
securely to the walls .....

Aaah the vagaries of living in Zimbabwe .... there is no where quite like
it !! We just love it.

2) WEEKLY WATER WATCH

PEASE SEND US YOUR WATER SAVING TIPS

TIPS FOR COPING WITH WATER CUTS

For those who cannot afford to have boreholes, pumps, storage tanks, etc

When carrying water do not suffer from 'Lazy man's load' - heavy loads.
Many older (and
not so older) people are trying to carry heavy buckets of water - make
two trips instead
carrying half each time. You won't suffer from strained muscles and the
extra walking will
do no harm.

Or carry two smaller equally balanced containers, one in each hand.

When filling up your toilet cistern, rest the container on the edge while
pouring. If it is a
closed container, not a bucket, rest it on it's side and let it run till
it stops - half the
container usually does the job. Then flush if required, and without
removing the container
fill the cistern again (container may then be empty). This means only one
lift for two
flushes !

Many of us are bathing from our wash basins, if your bath is near your
washbasin, you
may be able to stand your container on the edge of the bath. Then the
lift or tilt to the
washbasin is much easier.

On behalf of all our staff, patients and supporters at Bulawayo Island
Hospice, may we
extend our most grateful thanks to all for their continued support and
help we get.
At this Christmas time, we ask everyone to please think of the less
fortunate, and
remember them in kindness and deeds.
We are finding it very difficult to survive in these times, and ask that
those who are able to
support us, will do so.
Our Sisters visit the terminally ill in their homes, and our cars are now
old, and costing
much to run.
We will also be happy to have any clothes, linens, bottles,or anything
that you can not use.
All monies go towards the helping of our patients.
Please remember us at this festive season.

Orphaned kittens desperately seeking homes.

Last week a black & white cat was killed on Cecil Ave (Banff/Essex Road
area). Three days
later it emerged that she had left behind five kittens. We think these
little babies are about
a month old. We started off by syringe feeding but they are already
learning to eat by
themselves. Although very young, they are strong and healthy.
SPCA advise that they are unable to assist as the kittens are too small
for them to care for
and they will be put to sleep if taken there. If you have a lactating cat
who might
temporarily adopt one (or a few) of these orphans or if you can give a
home to a kitten
please contact me - 467549 (w), 0912 398014 or zimkatt@yahoo. co.uk These
little
fighters survived against all odds and deserve a second chance. Please
help!

IAN DOUGLAS SMITH HAS DIED

Ian Douglas Smith remained a key player in Zimbabwean politics until 1987
The former prime minister of Rhodesia, Ian Smith, whose government
illegally declared independence from British rule, has died aged 88.

Mr Smith led a rebel regime for nearly 14 years after the Unilateral
Declaration of Independence in 1965.

During his turbulent years in power, he fought a guerrilla war against
factions of the majority black population.

It was a struggle he eventually lost, paving the way for the country's
independence as Zimbabwe in 1979.
+++++++
The passing of Ian Smith is truly a sad time in Rhodesian History.
I can remember as a teenager attending a rugby match and Mr. Smith
walking next to me
and greeting me as if he personally new me. What a humble man. Not a body
guard visibly
hovering around him. How different to current times.
Thoughts and prayers are with his daughter at this time.
Blessings
Dianne (Born in a memorial year - 1965!)

UPDATE ON VERITY AMM

It is a few months since the last report on the situation. There has been
a big turnover at
the Cottages due to ever rising costs with families deciding to make
other arrangements
and, of course, anno dominae, which, in turn affects the smooth running
of activities at
the Centre. We will shortly be losing more of the capable and active
residents,
unfortunately as the economy continues to bite and food availability does
not improve.

The soup kitchen has survived a year but it is becoming more and more
difficult to find
volunteers and men in particular who can help with the huge pots We cater
for around 40
a time.. But, we press on. There is now quite an extensive video library
and books for
the main library are received quite frequently. Members pay $10 for a
book or a
donation, Zim dollars that is! Our new librarian is 81 years old and was
bitten by a cat at
the complex last year which continues to give her great problems. The
hall has been hired
out for functions and is used for a lot of inside socials and meetings
and by religious
groups.

Unfortunately our Administrator and her husband, who keeps the hall in
spotless
condition, have been persuaded to join their family in Namibia. We will
miss them hugely
but do wish them well. We are, therefore urgently needing the services of
a couple to fill
the position. Anyone interested please ring 255611 or e-mail
rickwood@gatorzw. com

On the whole it has been the most difficult year yet and one pensioner
was pleased to tell
me that her pension had been raised to Z$2.5 million! Unfortunately
millions are worth
nothing in fact two = gbp1. In the circumstances we cannot expect to
cover costs from
within. She is one of the lucky ones. Many are turning their hands to
craft work and
make shopping bags and door stops in particular using any scraps they can
get hold of.
One lady does beautiful flower arranging and there is much talent
generally. One resident
has got the vegetable garden productive again but is, of course, limited
in the amount of
work he can do. Generally most of the men are still working be they in
their 70's or 80's
and need to continue until they drop quite literally. Life has been tough
for the oldies in
2007. One lady approached me as she was fearful her husband would lose
his job and
they had nothing to fall back on. I asked about her family to be told
they did not want to
know as she was getting Altzheimers!

On behalf of all members I would like to give a huge 'thank you' to the
many people and
companies both in Bulawayo and, in fact, all over the world who have been
so very
generous in cash and kind and enabled us to carry on helping to make the
life of our
oldies a little easier. We have managed the two soups a week but without
meat now
although recently donations have been received which enabled meals to be
provided
which were hugely appreciated. I am told they were also able to enjoy hot
chocolate and
marshmallows for morning tea on several occasions - a real treat.
JUMBLE SALE - We intend to hold a jumble sale just as soon as we have
enough so ladies, if
you are on the move or simply clearing your places please remember your
junk may be
someone else's treasure and anything will be gratefully received at
Verity Amm Hall next
to Coronation Cottages and will, in its turn, help us to do more for our
people.

Grateful thanks also go to Margaret Kriel and the Morning Mirror which
has been so very
helpful in enabling us to carry on the work.
The Christmas party season is now upon us and parties have been arranged
to include
residents at many other homes and complexes and there will be a chance to
go to
Grannies' night at the theatre - not a panto this year, unfortunately.
How about adopting a Granny this year to join in your festivities? Many
have no families
of their own here any more and Christmas can be the loneliest time of the
year for them.

We take this opportunity to wish all a very happy festive season and
improvements in the
life style in 2008. - God Bless!

Chairman, Exec Com. Verity Amm Centre

The Bulawayo Crematorium

There are, however, additional costs which must be met in order that the
refurbishment
can actually take place, together with additional materials that, on
closer inspection of the
Cremator, were found to be necessary.

In order that a guarantee is given, Pyros requires that their own experts
oversee the
operation, commission the cremator and train the subsequent operators.
These costs must
be met by ourselves as a further approach to the Beit Trust would suggest
that Bulawayo
is not willing to help itself

The Committee in conjunction with the business community have raised
funds for the
following
- Accommodation: 10days for 2 persons (Refractory Masons)
6 days for 1 person (Specialist Engineer)
- Vehicle(s) and fuel for travelling to the site etc
- Transport of the materials from South Africa to Bulawayo - probably
payable in R
The following requirements remain outstanding due to our current economic
hardships
and foreign currency constraints:

- 3 x air fares: Durban-J'Burg- Byo return A discount has been offered by
an Airline but
obviously the amount payable in Rand will depend on dates

- Additional materials
- Venturi Educators - R5 227.00 each (2 off required)
- Airjets - R665.00 each (4 off required)
- Temperature Indicators - R1 575.00 each (1 off required with
Termocouple)
- Draft Indicators - R4 025.00 each (1 off required)

- Cost of Refractory Masons (10days for 2 persons) - R36 167.00
- Cost of Specialist Service Engineer (6 days for 1 person) - R60 000.00

A Committee has been set up to raise the required funds outlined above
and it presently
consists of:
Mr D Hubbard - United Spring & Forging (Chairman) Rev Noel Scott -
Representative
for the Churches
Mr Neil Todd - Representative of the Beit Trust Mr Roger Enslin
Mr George Enslin - City Council Mr Mike Burns - Committee Member
Mr John Tipler - (ABUZ) Mr Dean Pieters - Committee Member
Mrs kathy Booysen - Datvest Mr George Parkin - Committee Member

Any monies received will be handled by Mrs Kathy Booysen of Datvest, who
will keep
separate books of account and will disburse such funds on a voucher
system. Anyone
wishing to donate toward this worthy cause can contact Mrs Booysen on
Bulawayo 75483
to make arrangements. A Trust Fund will be registered for any excess
funds, after
expenses have been paid, and it is envisaged that, in consultation with
Council and the
Funeral Parlours, a levy will be raised on the basic cremation fee (say
15%) to provide the
funds for future, regular maintenance work to be carried out on the
cremator. In addition,
the Trust will operate an FCA account for any foreign currency donations.

My name is Petros Ndhlovu (professional tennis coach) based at Bulawayo
Athletic Club
(BAC) in Bulawayo. I have been involved in tennis coaching in the
province for 13 years
with the junior and senior squads and recently wheelchair tennis
development for 3 years.

I do appeal for help to enable one of my students Nyasha ,Mharakurwa to
travel to South
Africa for the ACSA East London Open from the 27th to the 30th of
November and the
South African Open in Pretoria , 5-8 December 2007. He is a wheelchair
tennis player
with a congenital deformity and recently graduated with an Honours Degree
in
Administration (UZ), he has been playing wheelchair tennis for the past
three years and
has played two tournaments on the ITF Wheelchair Tennis Tour in South
Africa. The first
tournament was the Free State Open in February where he got to the semis
and quarter
finals in the doubles and singles respectively. Recently, he competed in
the ACSA
Limpopo Open where he was runner up in both singles and double. For this
great
achievement he earned a world ranking of 160 in singles and 178 in
doubles.

We have so far raised R 2 700,00 through tennis lessons and from a few
well wishers and
we do appeal to anyone out there to help raise the remaining
R 2 700,00 by Friday 23 November 2007. we have got transport sponsorship
from a local
bus company to and from South Africa.

for more information regarding this, please contact petros on 011 572

The November issue of taxnews is out on the 28th. From the responses we
have received
we must clarify that the 10% witholding tax has nothing to do with VAT.It
relates to income
tax. If you are in business either as an individual or as a company you
must examine every
transaction. If the amount being paid by you is more than $500 000 and
you do not hold an
ITF263 tax clearance form from your supplier then you must withhold 10%
of the value.

Recently Zimra have correctly garnered penalties and interest on persons
who did not hold
the 10% on fuel supplies. The fact that the fuel is exempt from VAT has
nothing to do with
the 10% w/tax. The section that governs the withholding tax was brought
in to aid Zimra
in bringing the informal sector to pay some taxes.If your supplier does
not have an
ITF263 then it means his income taxes are not up to date or he doesn`t
have a tax file.
You are then in effect paying his taxes for him, plus penalty ,plus
interest?Is it worth it?

Be very careful that the invoice marries with the Form ITF 263.If the
names are different or
he has put his trading name instead of his company name , Zimra will
penalise you.

CORNER STONE IN THE GREEN BELT ON THE WEST (TOWN) SIDE OF PARK ROAD,
SUBURBS
TOWARDS 7TH STREET / 4TH AVENUE.

This is positioned between the railway lines, laid in anticipation of
putting an engine there
for the Railways Centenary, and the Children's Traffic Training area. it
can be seen from
park Road or from near the surgery next to McDonald Club.

It is about 1.5 metres high and wide and is literally just the corner of
a building.

It reads:
This foundation stone was laid by CAMILLA FRANCIS JOHNSTONE on 312
December 1999.

The Railways do not seem to have an explanation, and no newspaper article
was found
mentioning it at this time this time.


Does anyone know anything about this ? What was it for ? Was it for the
Millennium
celebrations ?

CARERS NEEDED IN THE UK

CORINIUM CARE is an independent agency arranging twenty-four hour care
for the elderly
and infirm in their own homes in the UK. We expect carers to look after
our clients with
the same compassion as they would a member of their own family by helping
them
perform the activities of daily living. The degree of care depends very
much on individual
circumstances and carers are given detailed information before agreeing
to accept a
position. The daily rate ranges between £65.00 and £95.00 and travel
expenses are paid
by the client.

Before being registered as carers with our agency applicants are required
to undergo a 5
day in-house induction and training course supported by an in-house
ongoing training
programme advising carers on all aspects of the job within the confines
of the client's
home. We provide round the clock support and guidance should any problems
arise whilst
on an assignment.

Requirements are:- British/EU Passport or Right ofAbode/Ancestral Visa

Qualities needed:- Caring relies on your attitude and ability to be
compassionate, patient and understanding. Certain qualities make a better
carer, ie.
Flexibility, cheerfulness and a good sense of humour.

Should you wish to apply/need additional information, contact:-

Jenny Osborne

Tel:- 850271 or Cell:- 9012 324 333 or Email: jenny@corinium. co.zw

A DOG CALLED ALICE

Alice, a golden Labrador retriever was adopted from the Bulawayo SPCA by
a loving family.
She fitted in well with their other dogs and was the family favourite.
Unfortunately for
Alice, her family had to leave Zimbabwe and a 'good' friend took Alice as
she was a young
dog. Her second family, it seems, did not bond with her and looked upon
this energetic
dog as a nuisance. Time went by and poor Alice was once again moved on.
She found
herself in a worse predicament with very little food, not much love but
this plucky little
dog made the most of the situation, until one day in hunger, she killed
some chickens.
We were called to collect this dog and it broke my heart to see her
emaciated condition.
She is with us at the Bulawayo SPCA where she will get food and plenty of
tender, loving
care. Hopefully some kind person will give her a loving home she
deserves.

AFRICAN EARTHWORKS WITH
KIGELIA

The development of this product took some 18 months and included the
services of a
French Nose who spent several months in Zimbabwe to develop the unique
fragrances that
relate to the fragrances of the African Wilderness.

The loofahs used in the soaps, grow wild off the tender clinging vine -
the luffa aegyptiaca
- in the lowveld and the Zambezi Valley. They are handpicked by villagers
who live in
these remote areas, and are delivered to us from as far as 500kms by
various modes of
transport.

The loofahs are then sun dried, peeled, washed, de-seeded and dried
again. Hand
selection takes place in selecting the correct size loofah to fit the
mould. The soap is
made using high percentages of natural oils which are poured over each
loofah. We wait
for the soaps to set and then each is individually removed from the mould
and trimmed
and polished by hand. The wrapping and packing process takes place by
hand. We believe
that this is what makes our product so unique - you really have a piece
of Africa in your
hands.
Enjoy our products they are naturally a part of Africa.

At present the range consists of: -
Loofah Soaps
Glycerin Soaps
Exotic Bath Soaks
Sugar Bath Cubes
Endangered Guest Soaps
Not forgetting our unique Earthchild Eau de Parfum

Which come in six exciting African inspired fragrances
- Zambezi Wild Berry
- Zambezi Rain Forest
- Marula and Jojoba Oil
- Baobab and Tea Tree Oil
- Rose Oil and Apricot -----soon to be replaced by African Love flower.
- Savannah Aloe

TIDBITS

In the late 1950's there was a meeting of the United Rhodesia Party at
Thomas Rudland
School in Queens Park East. Councilor Len Sexon chaired the meeting which
was attended
by a large crowd from the area. Also present was Fr Otto Grimm in what
was probably his
last year as the local Catholic parish priest. When the speakers had all
made their
presentations, the meeting was opened to questions. After a while, Fr
Grimm raised his
hand and was invited to put his question.

He explained that although he was German by birth he had only recently
become a
naturalised citizen, and he wanted to ensure that he understood exactly
what would
happen in the election. The party representatives were only too happy to
oblige.

"I understand," he said, "that the three gentlemen on the platform are
standing for election
to Parliament." There were nods from the platform.

"And if they are elected, " Fr Grimm went on, "they will sit in
Parliament?"
Again nods and agreement from the platform.

"The perhaps they can tell me," he went on innocently, "that if they are
elected, they will
not also lie in Parliament?"

There was a moment of stunned silence, then the meeting erupted in
laughter,in which
the speakers on the platform joined.
