No white christmas in Barbados....if yah please!

Christmas is my my favourite time of the year it is true and I like it in Barbados, even though it is not like it used to be.Bridgetown is beginning to swell with people. I am tempted to say like a mindless mass of people.....I probably will be doing my shopping on christmas eve...just before the stores close....It still amazes me how one culture can be so much influenced by another...the proliferation of white christmas songs.....prompted my little girl to ask me if it ever snowed or ever will snow in Barbados...as i told her...i don't like a white christmas and thats because of the cold.If snow was white fluffy and warm then yes...maybe.

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
