Friends, the rains (24) last week made the place so cool and nice for a few days. But, mi nah tell nuh lie, the heat tun up since. Mi sure that the air conditioning people must be making some good bucks (25) 'cause dis yah heat nah joke.

My, my, my! Three Miles — once a roundabout, then a square, and soon to be a major interchange in city Kingston — is one crowded (33) parking lot in the mornings, and I suspect that it will continue like this for the rest of the construction period. The time in traffic and gas consumption is a headache.

But one way to help lessen the stress is fi put di police (13) on the toll road to prevent unruly drivers from using the soft shoulder to form a fourth lane. Jamaican men (23) and women (22) drivers really lack discipline. But if a policeman who is not on emergency can put on flashing lights and use soft shoulder, why others can't do the same thing?

You walk good.
