Cook out at Langley, Mount James

One of the best things about Jamaicans is their ability to rise above whatever is happening and enjoy themselves with very little. Nature has truly blessed our island Jamaica with so much natural beauty and tranquility that it doesn’t take much to set the stage. Once a group of friends get together in the right setting it just needs some good Jamaican food, drinks and music for everyone to have a great time.

Recently some friends and I decided to have a cook out; actually we do this very regularly. This time the venue was Langley, Mount James. We all put a ‘smalls’ to purchase food and everyone brings a bottle.

Langley is close to Kingston, so we didn’t have to go far this trip. There is a turn off at Golden Spring square, that takes you up the hill. There is what used to be the remains of a great house on the property with a river running through it. Lots of fruit trees and wild flowers grow naturally making the site a real little paradise. The setting was perfect.

One of the highlights of the day is cooking outdoors. The men usually do the cooking while the women pretend to be very busy. On this trip we had jerk chicken, stew pork, boiled green bananas, yam, dashine and, dumplings. Of course there was also a big pot a soup, what type you ask, I have no idea. Manish water/gungo peas with pork etcetera soup. It contained goat, pork, chicken, gungo peas, and food. All I know is that it did taste good. ‘Me one drink three bowl, and yes, the pot did that big and mi fren dem get some to.’

Over all we had a great day. The music was played from somebody’s vehicle, some great vintage music. There were all sorts of spirits, sodas as well as coconut water and cane juice. By the way, have you ever tried squeezing grape fruit juice into cane juice, try it.
Some played dominoes, some went into the river while others just chilled and did nothing.
The perfect remedy for stress. I known some of you would have loved to have been there so I took some pictures, enjoy.

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!!!"
