I am not one of those who have been ranting and raving about the golf world cup being hosted in Barbados.Not that i have anything about it being here it is just that I don't like golf.I don't like the look of golf...i don't like the clothes that golfers wear....I don't even know why they call it a sport. Those who play golf tell me you have to play it to understand the passion for a sport that is beyond comparison...truly that is what they say. I don't know if there is a difference between hitting golf balls and playing golf.What I know is that it seems to be a lazy persons sport.... It seems as much sport as taking a leisurely stroll on the beach. It doesn't seem physical...it doesn't seem mental......maybe one of these days I will understand. Now cricket world cup is a different kettle of fish.....lots of action...lots of involvement and we have a team with a chance to bring home some money. I can't say I am looking forward to the golf world cup.....b…

Living on an island is good

I am one of those people who absolutely love living in Barbados.It is not that I haven't ventured from these shores.I did sometime in the 80's spent a while in the USA.

What I did notice at that time was the newpaper headlines that I saw at times...."minorities scoring higher in SAT's" ...I would sometimes wonder if people could be so ignorant as to not know how foolish these statements......anyhow that is beside the point and irrelevant anyway.

Yes living in Barbados is good although I don't know why ...maybe it is because you can slow down the pace of everthing if you want to and stop for a while.Maybe it is because you don't get lost as an individual functioning for the sole purpose of satisfying the state.....or maybe it is because ever so often the country will pause for a while and wuk up.

No it is not that......maybe it is the soft spoken arrogance of the people who actually and really believe that Barbados is the center of the world...no really.Maybe…

KRT Wire | 09/05/2006 | Barbados: beaches, surfing, calypso and beautiful views

KRT Wire 09/05/2006 Barbados: beaches, surfing, calypso and beautiful views: "ST. JOHN, Barbados - A cemetery and an Anglican church may seem like unusual tourist destinations.
But St. John's Church and its tiny cemetery offer views to die for on the rugged, wild and unspoiled East Coast of Barbados, the pretty and very British Caribbean island.
It is one of the southernmost of the West Indies, a flowery place where flying fish is the national dish and where the water is described as Barbados blue.
The Gothic church sits at the edge of Hackleton's Cliff about 825 feet above the Atlantic Ocean. It offers a commanding view of the surf and beach between Bathsheba and the East Point Lighthouse."
