It snatched my handsome young brother away almost two years ago on New Year's Eve, (ruining the only night of the year where I have allowed myself since having children to really let rip with a risque dress, and as much alcohol as my body could take).

Monday

Oh those roads… I dread driving on our roads more than ever and I have one of those cute little Cubes that I sure would like to enjoy driving. For me, driving involves a lot of biting my lip and cringing at what the person in front of me has just done.

Fr Henry Charles updated 08/12/08

Selwyn R Cudjoe upadted 06/11/08

Leaders in our country claim that they practise Obama-style politics but after thorough forensic analysis, it is clear that this popular catch phrase is merely a spouting of words to add to the already overflowing pot of political propaganda.

Vaneisa Baksh updated 12/12/08
