Do you shop in groups?

We are all social beings and Jamaicans have always enjoyed the company of their friends and family.  I am sure many people can relate to the fact that they enjoy spending time with their friends especially on shopping trips. Of course, there is always the exception to the rule. Although I enjoy shopping with friends at times, there are those days when I purposefully avoid the crowd and go on my own. Unbiased Opinion There are benefits to shopping in groups, after all [...]

Healthy Seas…Happy People. Makes Sense!

Do we think about the health of our seas, which occupy seventy-one per cent of the Earth's surface?  Or do we just assume they are managing just fine? It's a funny thing, but I believe we tend to think "out of sight, out of mind" when it comes to the ocean. We rarely peep beneath the surface - unless we are engaged in some kind of water sports. Unless we see something actually on the surface (like the garbage, largely plastic [...]

FORMULA 1: ROSBERG VS HAMILTON - TWO SMOKING GUNS - MONACO GP

All the evidence from the Spanish GP was collected and examined by all the forensic scientists available.

DRAG RACING : DRAG CHALLENGE # 2 - BOOST IS BEST? Part 2

If he was an athlete Xavia Murray would be a phenom. A freak of nature, more dominant than Usain Bolt! A M.A.D man he is!

The machine's code name is Plus 1. When out for a jog, the naturally aspirated demon claims 10 seconds without oozing a microscopic drop of [...]

DRAG RACING : DRAG CHALLENGE # 2 - BOOST IS BEST? PART 1

Years ago a 10 seconds machine was the benchmark by which all others were judged. Can you believe that 15 years have elapsed since The Fast And Furious invaded Carib 5. Do you remember the machines that assembled at Carib 5 to celebrate the release of the blockbuster which wrapped fast cars, fast fun and illegal street-racing into a palatable, adrenaline-charged dish? The good old King Midas days! If the concrete at Vernamfield was consulted, some rather interesting tales of machines [...]

Water - measured to the last drop!

Do you have one of those new water meters? I recently had one installed at my home. I wondered at first if I should be upset about this new development. Digital Meters Progress is never easy especially in its beginning phrases. My old meter worked just fine so I wondered why I needed a new one? Well times have changed and we simply have to go with the flow or get left behind. These new meters are the Diehl Hydrus brand meters and [...]
