I haven't heard from her Ed, I had a business e-mail address for her but when I sent out the address change after I got ADSL it bounced.

Sam was last online (here) on 7/9 (a week ago), but I haven't heard from her since our exchange about a month ago.

How's it going Sam?

Howdy!

It's going fine, thanks, but I had some fun a couple of weeks ago ... the day after Peter went away, I was given five days to get everything off the farm - you may remember that when we left the place, we had to leave everything behind. Well, I went into overdrive and got all the furniture and stuff out of the house, but when I went to get the farm equipment, I was told that I could not take that as removing it would amount to "vandalism"!! Never mind that they are not using it (except the irrigation pipes) and it is sitting rusting away in the long grass.

I locked the house up and I have since heard that the Chinamasas have broken the locks (like the common criminals they are) and moved in. That's what it was all about - they never wanted the land, just a nice weekend retreat in the country!!

We've found a house to rent with enough grazing for the gee-gees, so we're about to move in there - no phone, so no internet (boo!) and the water supply is dubious to say the least, but it's somewhere to live.

The day of reckoning is definitely drawing nearer, but I must say that your dear President did not help matters when he was in South Africa recently - he seems to think things are progressing quite fine in Zimbabwe!

Sam

Sam, Glad to hear your still in the ring so to speak. The lukewarm or non existant criticism of Mugabe by fellow African leaders sums it all up doesnt it.

Hi Sam,

Glad to hear that you're still around, and were able to at least get your furniture. Did you expect to get the farm equipment -- or even your furniture?

As far as our President having trouble figuring out the severity of a problem, or even if there *is* a problem -- that seems to be the norm.

Ed
