Escape to silver hill

Be warned: Getting up to Silver Hill requires stamina — lots of it — and a reliable vehicle. Inhale as the climb continues past Greenwich and The Gap Café and exhale at Café EITS. Exercise a tad more patience — not that much of a challenge, really, as the ascent is spectacular and the rainforest postcard-perfect. Wallenford Coffee Farm signals the final leg of the journey, complete with crater-type potholes. Open gates, there are two, take us to a gorgeous cedar ... Read More

Sparkling water villas — A Taste Of Flippie Chic

Sparkling water villas — A Taste Of Flippie Chic

The south coast is thankfully (and we're clutching our pearls to boot), no longer backpack capital. Flippie-chic has crept into the lexicon and where to stay has got a whole lot more stylishly complex. Eschew all thoughts of pomp and ceremony - it's not that type of party - but thanks to pioneers like Gordon 'Butch' Stewart, Andrea and Axel Wichterich, Patrick Waldemar and Mutabaruka, to sprinkle a few names, there's reason to pack with even more aplomb than you would for Mustique. SO welcomes ... Read More

Although she is an education officer at the Ministry of Education Betsy Davis — aunt of the fastest man alive, Usain Bolt — finds ultimate satisfaction in organic farming and whipping up creative meals. For brunch at Silver Hill last Sunday, Davis was the resident busy bee in the kitchen, chopping, dicing, tossing, steaming and mixing it up for a spread at the table replete with garden-fresh veggie combos and idiosyncratic flavoured dishes. Ahead of pulling up a seat around the table ... Read More

20Successful Habits I Learned Working For Two Billionaires — Part 1

I have spent decades being "educated" — in college, graduate school, numerous professional certifications, and now a PhD program. All of that schooling and training helped shape the person I am today, but at no point in my life has there been a more profound education than my time working for Enver Yucel and Oprah Winfrey — Turkish and American, respectively. Yucel and Winfrey are two extraordinary people. And on top of that, they're both billionaires. On the surface, they appear to ... Read More

My Kingston

Dr Ewart Brown

Dr Ewart Brown Former Premier of Bermuda What are your earliest memories of Kingston? Those memories would go back to about 1962/63 when I moved to Kingston from Spanish Town. I was still attending St Jago and I remember the daily rides that I would try to get from teachers who lived in Kingston. I remember the Carib and Regal theatres. Kingston was a vibrant, exciting place for me coming from a very small island and so I have fond memories of this city. What's your Jamaican connection? I ... Read More

Red Cymbidiums & Orange
Cymbidiums

Dear Orchid Doc: I have a few Cymbidiums from "Whoppy killed Phillop” but they won't bloom. Do you know anything about Cymbidiums that could help the situation? They look quite healthy otherwise and extremely fat with multiple shoots. — Eunice Dear Eunice: The fact that your plants look quite healthy and have multiple shoots would suggest that you have the growing and fertilising aspect of it “down pat!" However, not knowing what type of Cymbidium you have, I have to tell ... Read More

Our faithful Under The Dryer readers know only too well that prints, patterns and florals are synonymous with this time of year. After all, it's a given in the fabulous world of fashion and trend-watching. But this season the pattern du jour has been declared to be not only a print, and not just of the animal variety -- but specifically, leopard. Spring/Summer 2014 runways were awash in this feline staple and not just in the traditional colour combo of yellow and black, but you'll be seeing this ... Read More
