The 2017 season despite still being  in its infancy, is rapidly developing into the cataclysm that F1 fans have craved for years. We are in an era when there are legitimate contenders, for all of the silverware, from different teams. No foregone conclusion can be arrived at, at the various rounds and when all the facts are considered, scrumptious treats await fans at each magnificent destination that the F1 grand tour visits.

Fidget Spinners- a silly new craze or delightful toy?

Do you know people who hate sitting still?  They are the ones always rocking while they wait in a line or tapping their pen at their desk.  They often can prove to be annoying as it seems they just can't stop moving even for a minute. Well if you do know people like that maybe I have found the perfect gift.  It is a fidget spinner! A new toy on the market Catherine Hettinger was the original inventor of the popular toy but [...]

Are consumers being short changed?

I love to shop.  My idea of a good time is to have the means by which to go shopping and buy quality items at a lower price.  As result of my interest in this activity I have noticed a lot of disturbing trends.

The magnificent 24 hour race is now a Sprint All Out affair, from the green flutters until the checkered flag [...]

RALLYSPORT : 'SHELLINGS' IN BARBADOS - PANTON REIGNS SUPREME!

A Rally Jamaica story told without the colourful exploits of Jeffery Panton and Mike Fennell is an incomplete story. Tales of Jeffery's numerous daredevil, flamboyant, but incessantly exciting feats, like traditions, will pass, from the generation that witnessed the clinical display, to those who can only marvel based on what they hear and curse their lack of luck because the first-hand experience escaped them! The man is an enhanced RPG on the stages! Jeffery took his unforgiving weapon - Ford Focus WRC [...]

CIRCUIT RACING : SUMMERBELL-GORE ACCIDENT AT JAMWEST -

HONDA-HEADS REJOICE While engrossed in the rather arduous activity of channel surfing, my exhausted fingers unveiled CARIB (FLOW channel - 186) and the program title - HONDA RACING AT SPEED. And as the name suggested, the half hour was dedicated to nothing but Honda racing exploits worldwide! Enjoy. SUMMERBELL-GORE So, the Stewards conducted an investigation which led to a report being produced. We will all agree without heated debate that David Summerbell's actions, on the track, led to that which we witnessed. Do [...]
