Hats off to the Jamaica Gasoline Retailers Association

In Jamaica when prices escalate on goods and services we ‘cuss and gwan bad’ amongst ourselves but in the end do nothing constructive about it. We underestimate the power we possess as consumers if we unite and take a stand together. So I say hats off to… more »

The Fictitious Jamaica

THE FICTITIOUS JAMAICA It is patently obvious that a fictitious Jamaica has been created to which reference is made from time to time in glowing terms of prosperity. How else could there be talk of such good and beneficial things happening for the mas… more »

Qualified by Experience Not Enough

Once upon a time you could get a ‘decent’ paying job based on your GCE, now CXC, examinations results. Most companies would employ a person on the strength of those passes and proceed to train them on the specifics required for the particular job. Based… more »

Three Ministers

Three ministers - a Presbyterian, a Methodist, and a Southern Baptist and their wives were all on a cruise together. A tidal wave came up and swamped the ship, and they all drowned. The next thing you know, they're standing before St.Peter.

As fate would have it, the first in line was the Presbyterian and his wife. St. Peter shook his head sadly and said, "I can't let you in. You were moral and upright, but you loved money too much. You loved it so much, you even married a woman named Penny."

St.Peter waved sadly, and poof! Down the chute to the 'Other Place' they went. Then came the Methodist. "Sorry, can't let you in either," said Saint Peter "You abstained from liquor and dancing and cards, but you loved food too much.

You loved food so much, you even married a woman named Candy!" Sadly, St. Peter waved again, and whang! Down the chute went the Methodists.

The Southern Baptist turned to his wife and whispered nervously, "It ain't looking good, Fanny."
