Independence Weekend

Its Independence time again in Jamaica and this weekend promises to be quite exciting. Here is an opportunity for all Jamaicans to share with their children a bit of our culture at its best.
The Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) presents, ‘The Best of Festival Concert Series’. There will be displays at the highest level in music, drama, speech, and dance.
The Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS) will also be staging the annual Denbigh Agricultural and Industrial Show.
Last year 2004, I attended Denbigh for the first time as an adult. I had a ball. My husband is always teasing me about being born under the clock in Kingston and as a result I’m not very knowledgeable about country life. Well now I believe him. I learnt so much at Denbigh.
I had the opportunity to sample all kinds of fruits and food that I’d only heard of before. Jamaican treats such as ‘blue drawers’ and ‘dukunu’ to name a few. I learnt the good of certain herbs and roots, chaney roots, and red water grass, etc. Then were cows and pigs there as big as a house. (So I exaggerate a little). I witnessed vegetables being grown without soil. (That was truly interesting).
All in all the day was full of music, laughter and education, a must for everyone.
We don’t have this level of cultural display as often as we should. Make sure you take advantage of this opportunity, and be sure to take the children.
Nuff love.

The Small Sandal Shop

A married couple was on holiday in Jamaica. They were touring around the marketplace looking at the goods when they passed this small sandal shop.

From inside they heard the shopkeeper with a Jamaican accent say, "You!

Foreigners! Come in, come into my humble shop."

So the married couple walked in.

The Jamaican said to them, "I have some special sandals I think you would be interested in. They make you wild at sex."

Well, the wife was really interested in buying the sandals after what the man claimed, but her husband felt he really didn't need them, being the sex god he was.

The husband asked the man, "How could sandals make you into a sex freak?"

The Jamaican replied, "Just try them on."

Well, the husband, after some badgering from his wife, finally gave in, and tried them on. As soon as he slipped them onto his feet, he got this wild look in his eyes, something his wife hadn't seen in many years!

In the blink of an eye, the husband grabbed the Jamaican, bent him

violently over a table, yanked down his pants, ripped down his own pants,and grabbed a firm hold of the Jamaican's hips.

The Jamaican then began screaming; "YOU GOT THEM ON THE WRONG FEET!!!"
