Thanks for the info. Like Debbie said, some of us feel as though we're part of it now.

Chris, did Sam say whether her hubby was still OK? Evidently, close to 200 farmers have been detained.

Mad bob was shooting his mouth off at Tony Blair yesterday at the Earth Summit. What was rather unsettling was that Nujoma (Namibia) is supporting mad bob, so I wonder when the land grabs will start in Namibia?

Hi all,

Just back from a few wonderful weeks in CIVILISATION - wow, what a treat that was, I'd forgotten what normal life was like!

Everything okay here on the farm as far as I can tell ... but will update you once I've caught up with a zillion things ...

Huge thanks to you all for your support & thoughts - will keep you posted.

Sam

Wow, it's such a relief to hear from you Sam. Like DJ said, our connection to you has made the situation in Zimbabwe so much more real for the rest of us. I can't tell you how much I admire your strength in the face of such madness. Please do keep us updated whenever you're able to.

Jeanie

Hey Sam. Sure did miss you. Hope you were able to unwind a bit on your stay in Scotland. I think sometimes it helps to get away from things to get a better perspective on the situation. Stay safe Sam and remember we all care deeply for you.

Wow, thanks DJ, Jeanie & Ed,

Yes, you're right - getting away did help clarify a few things and I think we're getting closer to a decision about whether to stay here or not - there's no visible future here for our children, or us for that matter! We'd be starting from scratch, with nothing, which is not wholly undaunting as a prospect, but at least we would be safe - living on the edge all the time is pretty wearing after a while!

Cheers all,

Sam

Hi Sam,

Good to hear from you again. It's hell to live in limbo, not ever knowing where you stand. If you make the decision to get out, at least you'll be able to deal with it then. Otherwise, it's an impossible situation to deal with. I know it would be very hard to leave something like that, but once you've done it, you'll probably be glad you did. Then you can start to get your lives together again, and maybe have a future to look forward to. Best of luck in whatever decision you make.

Ed

Good to hear from you Sam...starting over would be hard but as you said, at least your kids would have a future to look forward to and you would be safe from the insanity of Zim.
