Spared by Lady Emily

Jamaicans are once again sighing with relief as Hurricane Emily spared us a direct hit. In our eyes she is a true lady. Not to discount her power Emily a dangerous category 4 hurricane packing winds of 155 mph passed to the south of St. Elizabeth on Saturday July 16, 2005.
Rain from the outer bands was our worst enemy. Serious flooding has been reported in Holland, Maggoty, the New River area, parts of Clarendon, St. Ann, Trelawny, Mandeville, Westmoreland and Portland. In Annotto Bay, St. Mary several hundred residents had to seek shelter at the All-Age School because of flooding.Some families of flood proned areas were taking no chances after Hurricane Dennis last week and had moved to shelters before as a precautionary measure.
The Palisadoes road was blocked with debris from the ocean cutting off access to the Norman Manley International Airport and Port Royal.
I'm sure as the days go on we will hear of more flooded areas, impassable roads, land slides and other disasters associated with the torrential rains and strong winds of Hurricane Emily. However, I'm sure all Jamaica joins me in giving thanks to our creator (whom ever you concieve him to be) for once agian sparing Jamaica from the worst.
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!!"
