Awaiting Hurricane Emily

Today is July 15,2005 and already Jamaica is bracing for its second Hurricane of the season. The question on everyones mind is should I, or should I not? Is this hurricane really coming or not? Some are saying because it's a 'woman hurricane' it can't make up its mind. What can I say, Jamaicans are colourful people.
Earlier this morning Hurricane Emily became a category 4 hurricane packing winds of up to 135 mph travelling WNW.'Straight fi Jamaica'. Since then it has downgraded to a category 3 hurricane packing winds of 115 mph travelling W. Still a dangerous lady but this latest course takes her further south of Jamaica making her seem less ominous to us.
So, back to the question, 'should I go through the whole nine yards'of preparation or not. My granny used to say 'An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure'.
Keep praying with and for us. This little island we love is already supersaturated with Hurricane Dennis which pasted last week. Even if we only get rain, some parishes can't take anymore.
'I gawn get ready'.
Nuff love

Bruk Pocket Jamaican

"Recently, this Jamaican won the 10 million special lottery for a dollar. As soon as the office of the Lottery Corporation was open on the following day, he was there to collect his winnings.

Graciously, he presented his winning ticket to the clerk and in his best English uttered his request "Me cum fi collect the 10 millian dallars, si me ticket ya".

After reviewing and checking the ticket with his manager, the clerk returned and requested on how he would like his payments. The Jamaican replied "Mi wan all a de moni now". "Unfortunately, Sir" the nervous clerk responded, "The procedures are that we can only give you one million now and the balance equally over the next 20 years".

Furious and agitated, the Jamaican asked for the manager, who re-iterated "Sir, my assistant is correct, it is the regulation of the corporation that we initially pay you one million dollars now with the balance paid to you equally over the next 20 years".

Outraged, the Jamaican slammed his hand on the desk and shouted in anger, "Oonu tek me fi idiat, me wan all a de moni now or oonu gi me bak me rass dallar!!"
