The Bank girl

tellerYou’re standing in line waiting to do a transaction at your Bank. You notice the construction workers, the well dressed men and women, the grandmothers and the children all queued up waiting to change their checks or to deposit their hard earned money. Then you are alerted that it is your turn to be served. You approach the tellers wicket and are likely to see a well made up beautiful young woman. She is polite, friendly and genuinely helpful. You are able to complete your transaction in a reasonable time. You leave the Bank, happily thinking about the good service you just received.

Trinidad’s Carnival is Mas


The greatest show on earth is once again upon us. Trinidad’s carnival is the 23rd and 24th of February 2009. Mas is all about beautiful costumes, beautiful women girating in the streeets to sweet soca music. Mas is also the time when a bank girl will party with a maxi taxi driver. Mas bands in Port of Spain are often 10,000 strong. The emphasis recently is less on portrayal and more of having fun. The traditional mas has been replaced now my near naked mas. Everyone who has played mas always tell me that it is a great experience. However, I thinks I will continue to take their word for it.

Awful Actors

There are many terrible actors who have starred in awful films. How do we honour these great men and women? I propose the Hollywood Jail for Actors. The following is a list of prospective inmates.

Chuck Norris

You need a ‘Walker’ Texas Ranger

Craig T Nelson


Coach is enough of an explanation.

Steven Segal

Has this guy ever even got his suit dirty?

Matthew McConaughey

Stewie Griifin approaches this subject best


Why bother trying?

Bookeem Woodbine

Single handedly represents all the negative aspects of African Americans

Hugh Grant

He does not represent England

Jessica Simpson

We have so much to be proud of our small island. I know the Barbudans are probably wondering why i didn’t include them but I am dealing with only Antigua at this time. Antigua has beautiful beaches, coves and bays. The landscape is balanced between mountains in the south and relaively flat land in the North. All points are easily accessible on the island because of its size and lack of mountain ranges dominating the landscape.

The people are friendly and hospitable. We genuinely care about each other in this country. We have raised funds for person in need of medical atttention in a matter of hours.

Our economy may not be as strong as it used to be but we are still doing better than most of our caribbean neighbours. Anyone who says they don’t have a job really doesn’t want to work. Look at so many foreigners who come here and start at enry level positions, work hard and achieve their goals.

So before we get to pesimistic about our Island lets look at the positve aspects of our beautiful country.
