Today is Kadooment Day in Barbados,the culmination of all the Crop Over activities.I have been mindfully watching everyone slowly working themselves into a frenzy and trying to figure out what it is all about.

Okay today we are going to be having the cultural exhibition of the Bands as they march past the judges at the National Stadium straight to the Spring garden Highway.The costumes will be depicting certain themes of relevance to our Caribbean society.Calypso music will be blaring or blasting the more popular songs of the season.Pomp and pageantry,colour and festivities,history and culture.

Almost everyone will be in some kind of frenzy today.Condom sales tend to skyrocket at this time as well as alcoholic drink.Skimpy wear is the order of day.They will be jutting and rutting and jucking today and not necessarily in that order. I am thinking to myself this could be heaven or this could be hell.

Face to face with a vicious Akita

I came face to face today with a vicious Akita,me and my little girl, luckily I had her in my arms while we were about to walk through the West Terrace district.We came around a corner and there was this huge Akita.It was actually taller than my little girl.She would have been looking it straight in the face. Now I am naturally afraid of dogs even the smallest of Chihuahuas.I avoided eye contact with the dog although peripherally I could see that he stopped and looked up at me.I continued walking calmly as though there was no threat about. Why do I say he was vicious? That is what I am hearing from people living in the area.Maybe he was just out of his territorial zone but I hope his owners keep in fenced in a lot better.That is something that I wouldn't want to happen again. Just a few months ago a child was mauled by an Akita.There was a time when the main dogs you used to encounter was the 'lowly' salmon tot retriever;A unique Barbados mongrel.Such is not the case now.To
