Cancelling the Festival Song Competition in the 60th year?

I still don’t believe I’m hearing right. The festival song competition has been cancelled! Then hear the reason for it — poor quality entries. A country as talented as Jamaica can’t find 10 quality songs for the festival? We who gave the world reggae and ska? No sah. I bet anyone that’s not the reason. I believe they didn’t get enough sponsorship and they think it will look bad on them. Well, it still look bad that we can’t stage a festival song competition in the year we are celebrating our 60th anniversary. KMT.

Enough of Oral Tracey’s foolishness

Talk is cheap, yes, but Oral Tracey in his commentaries is losing it and fast. Men like to say women don’t know anything about sports but I am going to declare that Tracey was chatting pure foolishness about the need for Brianna Williams to move on from Ato Bolden because she is performing below par. So she came last in one race, but one swallow doth not a summer make. In his very next commentary Tracey was made to eat crow as Brianna equalled her personal best in the 100m in her latest race. Should sports fans be asking whether it is time for Oral Tracey to move on?

Excited about Sandals in Curaçao

My girls are all excited about saving up to experience the new Sandals hotel in Curaçao, after seeing those exquisite pictures posted by Adam Stewart on his Instagram and LinkedIn accounts. We know that Sandals is top of the class, but we wish them every luck because Curaçao speaks a different language from the English-speaking islands that the resort is accustomed to.
