I may not be the typical Bajan as I keep saying.Why? It seems to me that Bajans are becoming more and more obsessed about food.Everywhere you turn there seems to be some new food outlet springing up.It is just not that,it seems to me that many times the conversation is about food.

Once upon a time pudding and souse used to be served mainly on Saturdays but now it is on the menu everyday,not for me though.I can eat the Black Pudding but eating animals is a no-no.You may or may not be aware that souse is a specially prepared pickled pig devoured by most Bajans.

I think one of the more interesting snacks is fish cakes.I think it is prepared a little different now than in days of old but is definitely popular and could be healthy.

Obesity is now a major problem in Barbados and without a doubt overeating and the consumption of animals is a major contributing factor with Barbados rated somewhere at number 12 in the world.This means we have a world ranking.

If you love food,obsess about food and live to eat then it doesn't matter if you are from Barbados or Mali,we all know what the end result will be.

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
