It seems to me that an awful lot of people are just not getting it when it
comes to pizza. It is the simplest of perfect foods and we should leave it
that way instead of buggering about with it. Like a beautiful building the
secret of a great pizza is in the base or foundation. You can tart the
rest up as much as you like but it will not make the pizza any better.
Judging a good pizza is a bit like buying a second hand car – ignore the
glitter and shineyness, the white walled tyres and highly polished wheel
rims, the glistening mirrors and the waft of pseudo leather eau de baloney
scent, if you want to learn something about a car then it’s best to get
down and get under it. If you want to know about your pizza forget about
the pile of gunge someone has dumped on top of it and have a good look at
it’s bottom. There should be a scattering of semolina showing that the
pizza maker was using a fairly soft, moist, dough and that he scattered
semolina onto his peel to act like like little ball bearings ensuring that
the pizza slid off easily onto the floor of the oven. There’ll be bits of
debris also picked up from the oven floor, oil stains and the odd black
bits, this is all good. If you’re very lucky the pizza maker will have
held your pizza over the flames for a moment as he extracted it from the
oven, enhancing the crust and adding a more intense smoky flavour. To
enjoy it at it’s best you need a thin crust, tomato and cheese, everything
you add after that propels you, as the Bard said, “down the primrose path
to the everlasting bonfire.”

This month I would like to give
you PART 2 of ANCHORS AND SAILS for FAMILIES.
Families often face difficult times that can be overcome with a strong set
of family values and the intimacy that it creates. Values can guide
decisions on how to react to problems. I call them the anchors and the
sails of families. A sailboat needs an anchor for safety and sails to push
it forward. Fact is - with its sails good and strong, a sailboat can even
sail against the wind. And it needs an anchor that will keep it safe when
storms are threatening.
Previously I discussed how the values of consistency, reliability and
gentleness can anchor your family during stormy times. Just like sails
take a sailboat through storms, so can playfulness, creativity and
encouragement help your child to gear up speed in order to get through her
With Playfulness I definitely exclude any electronic games. Electronics
form a barrier between human connections, and although playing takes
place, one is usually absorbed in individual activity or excitement. The
conversation surrounding electronic activity is superficial and technical,
not intimate or full of human connectivity. In psychology we always say:
“Play is the child’s language”. Parents who play games with their children
gain great leverage with their children to later get their children to
pick up leaves, clean their rooms and do things they usually would resist.
When you reprimand your child in a playful tone of voice they cannot react
in an aggressive manner to you like they so tend to do. Human connectivity
flourishes during playfulness.
Many parents believe that Creativity stops after they drop their child at
music or art classes. But that is not the creativity that builds better
relationships with you and their sibs. Although children love creativity,
many children will not be creative instinctively – they need your help.
You can help by: not answering the endless questions they ask, but by
asking them what THEY think, by taking them to a library and encourage
them to do their own research, by watching TV with them and DISCUSSING
issues and possible solutions to problems raised in soapies and movies; by
stimulating their critical and creative thinking when watching
documentaries. It is not in the watching TV or reading that your child
learns to think creatively but in the discussions that it generates. It is
not the creativity that you expose your child to at art or music classes,
but the time that you spend with them creating or even fixing things, that
In tough times parents should give courage to their children: En-courage
them. Not by taking over the task, or to allow them to give up but by
motivating and guiding the child so that she will be successful. Sometimes
it helps to tell your child of a time when you were struggling or wanted
to give up hope, what helped you to overcome the situation and what you
have learned from it. Sometimes (older) children should be reminded that
you are on their side and that you want them to succeed, and then to ASK
THEM in what way you can help.
Hopefully you will have a partner that supports your efforts and the
direction you want to take with your family. And hopefully you have a
clear vision to where and how you want to lead your family. If you don’t -
you might find that any current can take you along into the vast ocean of
life with no definite hope of ever reaching your dreams.
And again, if you have a Navigator whose clear guidelines are trusted and
implemented, it will strengthen YOU during troublesome times. Only then
can you be the harbour where your child believes she can find safety - no

I met Byron when we visited the
De Wildt Cheetah Sanctuary earlier this year, the following article is
from their newsletter. To subscribe, contact vanessa at
It is with great pleasure that we announce that Byron our first
ambassador is now a father to be.
This momentous occasion has happened purely by chance. We were doing
some filming with Kyknet’s Groen team and since they are also
generously sponsoring a Ssangyong vehicle as we do (ours is commonly
known as the Byron Mobile), we thought it fitting that Byron feature
in some of the cut away links that they would need for the programme.
We loaded Byron into the back of his vehicle and drove him down
ambassador lane to the run area for his part in the filming. All went
very well and he lazed on the newly mown grass with the presenter at
his side. As always, he was the star of the show. Since they needed to
do one more link with our beautiful sponsored Ssangyong – this time
without Byron in frame – we decided to keep him busy with a little
walk around the run area until we could load him back into his
We are in the height of breeding season at the moment and Byron has
never been used in the breeding programme, so it was with much
astonishment that we found him dragging us along to the fence of our
prized female runner ‘Graca’. Here he proceeded to chuckle and stutter
call, which is the mating call of the cheetah. I have never heard a
cheetah so vocal. No amount of begging, pleading and luring with is
favourite food bowl and a mountain of treats would convince him to get
back into his car. I called Ann over the radio and asked her to listen
to what was going on – by depressing the radio call button and holding
the radio to Byron’s mouth – she was able to hear his romantic
serenade to Graca. She immediately wanted to know if we were in
lover’s lane and who was chuckling and was rather amused when she
heard that we were in ambassador lane and that the voice was Byron.
Ann hastened down to ambassador lane and we gave Byron the opportunity
to walk past all the camps. He never stopped chuckling and was in fact
so excited that he even made advances to Shaka, our male king cheetah.
The females sadly were not interested in him at all, and let this be
known by pulling their ears flat and voicing a few very deep throated
It was at this point that we decided to load Byron back into his
vehicle with much begging and pleading, and take him up to lover’s
lane. Although Byron is probably the most well travelled cheetah in
the world, he has never been driven around the farm and now – all of a
sudden – with his interest sparked, there were cheetah all over the
place. He chuckled all the way as we drove and could not believe that
there were so many girls on the farm. Once in lover’s lane we let him
out of his vehicle and it was like letting a child loose in a toy
store for the very first time. He ran this way and that, not believing
his luck and unable to choose from all the girls on display.
A particularly beautiful cheetah female named Crypto came to the fence
and presented herself as ready. Since Byron could not seem to decide
for himself, we decided to let him into Crypto’s enclosure, I tried to
warn him that this would not all be fun and that the moment he had
finished mating she would give him a hefty beating. He was way too
excited to heed my warning and blundered into this potentially
dangerous encounter with only one thing on his mind. Crypto being
fully in cycle presented herself to Byron – and my little boy – bless
him - not quite knowing what to do, mounted her. When mating the male
grabs hold of the female on the back of the neck to hold her in place.
In his eagerness, my Byron misjudged a little and grabbed her on the
ear. Without the correct hold, his aim was a little high, but he
persevered and when the moment came to release her and jump free from
the onslaught that was to come he was unsure of what to do. By this
time she was lying flat on her side and although you could see him
thinking about what to do next – he was too slow and she turned under
him and lashed out with a series of powerful slaps from her front
feet. He jumped about 4 foot into the air to try and get away, but
alas she had caught him fully across the snout with one of her vicious
blows. He stood back indignantly sneezing and growling, completely
perplexed at what had just happened. For a full ten minutes he growled
at her, jumping nervously and running away from her every time she
She was quickly ready for the next mating and rolled around
provocatively in front of him, but as he approached, every time she
moved, he would jump back and growl in fear of the slap that might
follow. After a little while, he made his second attempt and this time
he grabbed hold of her as should be, on the back of the neck, and his
aim was definitely better. He still had not, however, worked out the
art of escaping the beating that was to follow. My heart bled for my
little boy that was now a man, as I watched him look back with total
confusion at what had just transpired.
We left the honeymoon couple together for the night and the next
morning, as we drove past the camp, I called out to him “Hello my
baby”, he glanced over his shoulder as if to say “Mom!!! Not in front
of my girlfriend” He had learnt quickly and now chased her around to
keep her in her place.
The romance did not last too long and by the third day as we drove
along Lovers lane, there was Byron standing at the gate waiting for us
to bring him his food, all thoughts of the new girlfriend driven from
his mind by the sight of his favourite food bowl and a hearty

Little Johnny's at it again..... A new teacher was trying to make use of
her psychology courses. She started her class by saying, 'Everyone who
thinks they're stupid, stand up!' After a few seconds, Little Johnny stood
up. The teacher said, 'Do you think you're stupid, Little Johnny?' 'No,
ma'am, but I hate to see you standing there all by yourself!'
Little Johnny watched, fascinated, as his mother smoothed cold cream on
her face. 'Why do you do that, mummy?' he asked. 'To make myself
beautiful,' said his mother, who then began removing the cream with a
tissue. 'What's the matter?' asked Little Johnny. 'Giving up?'
The maths teacher saw that little Johnny wasn't paying attention in class.
She called on him and said,
'Johnny! What are 2 and 4 and 28 and 44?' Little Johnny quickly replied,
'NBC, FOX, ESPN and the Cartoon Network!'
Little Johnny's kindergarten class was on a field trip to their local
police station where they saw pictures tacked to a bulletin board of the
10 most wanted criminals. One of the youngsters pointed to a picture and
asked if it really was the photo of a wanted person. 'Yes,' said the
policeman. 'The detectives want very badly to capture him.'Little Johnny
asked, 'Why didn't you keep him when you took his picture ?'
Little Johnny attended a horse auction with his father. He watched as his
father moved from horse to horse, running his hands up and down the
horse's legs and rump, and chest. After a few minutes, Johnny asked, 'Dad,
why are you doing that?' His father replied, 'Because when I'm buying
horses,I have to make sure that they are healthy and in good shape before
I buy. Johnny, looking worried, said, 'Dad, I think the Telstra guy wants
to buy Mum .'

Violet is not usually regarded as a herb, but it has so many culinary and
medicinal applications, it deserves a mention.
The violet has been cultivated for years because of it's lovely scent. It is
an asset to every garden.
The Greeks considered violet to be a symbol of fertility. The Romans made
wine from violet.
Violet is a perennial plant, low growing, and makes a lovely ground cover. A
violet plant grows to about 15cm in height.
The leaves can be picked all year round, and the flowers on opening. The
more you pick, the more they bloom.
Violets make an excellent edging, and are undemanding. They also attract
butterflies to your garden.
Violets are a lovely addition to small flower arrangements, and can also be
used in potpourri.
Add violet leaves to a facial steam.
Crushed violet leaves and flowers in almond oil soften callused skin on the
feet and hands.
Violets have a calming effect on the nervous system, act as a gentle
laxative and help relieve colds and coughs.
Chew the flowers or leaves to relieve a headache. Chew 5 at first and then 3
an hour later.
Make an infusion of leaves and flowers to alleve post nasal drip and
whooping cough. The tea is also effective for mucus in the throat, nose,
chest and lungs.
Bruised violet leaves make a soothing poultice for skin infections and
Use a strong violet tea as a wash for eczema and rashes.
Violets are best used on their own in cooking because of their subtle taste,
but combine well with lemon balm, bergamot, allspice, cinnamon, cloves,
nutmeg and mint.
Add the flowers to salads and vegetables for a dash of colour.
Crystallised petals make a beautiful garnish for cakes.
Make a violet vinegar by half filling a jar with fresh violets, then
covering with a good white vinegar, adding a stick of cinnamon. Let it stand
in the sun for 10 days, straining twice during that time, and adding fresh
flowers and leaves. Bottle in a screwtop jar, adding a few flowers for
decoration. Use for salad dressings, in the bath and as a hair rinse.

I'm very impressed with what I've read so far. What I really like
is that your book is a combination of medicinal and culinary advice,
unlike many other herb books I've read.

Cathy Buckle has started writing again from Mozambique, her letter
is below, before I get to that, I would just like to mention that
on average 7000 Zimbabweans are crossing our border daily. Hoping
to get a job? In a country that already has one of the highest
unemployment rates in the world? But our Government just keeps on
welcoming them! Sheesshh.
Here is Cathy's letter:
Dear Family and Friends,
We were disappointed but not surprised when Prime Minister
Tsvangirai's planned address to Parliament on the 13th May was
cancelled. By then the deadline given by the MDC to resolve
outstanding issues in the very unequal power sharing had passed
but, surprise, surprise, nothing happened. Ultimatums and
deadlines still don't work against Zimbabwe's old order - everyone
knows that, or almost everyone it seems!
Then we were told that Prime Minister Tsvangirai would make a
statement on Friday the 15th May announcing what's to be done
about Provincial Governors, Foreign Ambassadors, the Reserve Bank
Governor and Attorney General, all of whom were appointed
unilaterally by Mr Mugabe. That statement also didn't happen and
so we are left to speculate and remain stuck in no-man's land as
the struggle for real power continues.
Even as the stalemate continues everyone looks at the MDC to DO
SOMETHING but no one looks at Zanu PF to do anything. It's like we
have collectively stopped expecting anything from Zanu PF. Almost
every day Zanu PF wail about sanctions and no one even bothers to
correct them anymore and say: sanctions are not imposed on
Zimbabwe but on specific, targeted individuals.
'Shall we come home?' is a question some Zimbabweans living in
exile are already asking but so far there's not a sensible answer
to give them. To people who grow food for a living we can only
say: farm seizures are continuing; Title Deeds are still
worthless; police still don't get involved because "it is
political." To professionals we can only say: government teachers,
nurses and civil servants earn just 100 US dollars a month;
lawyers get arrested for defending their clients and people go to
prison for months at a time for their political beliefs; none of
the repressive and oppressive legislation has been repealed and
dual citizenship is still outlawed. To everyone we have to say:
there are no jobs; the cost of living is crippling; there is often
no water and electricity and infrastructure is in a state of near
Its not all bad though because despite the tragic loss of both his
wife and his grandson in the last three months, Prime
Minister Morgan Tsvangirai is still saying he's not giving up.
"There's no going back" is the phrase he keeps repeating and it is
the hope that we keep holding on to.
Until next week and from under a wide blue sky, thanks for
