Sandy Lane, Barbados

A friend suggested to me that Michael Winner should have gone to Brown Sugar Restaurant.......for some good Bajan food

The Sunday Times My friend Gordon Ramsay famously said, “Michael Winner knows nothing about food.” At last I’ve found someone who knows less about food than me.

Not only less about food, but less about presentation, about how to treat people . . . in fact I’ve met the most awful example of the so-called “hospitality industry” I’ve come across in 70 years of eating in the finest restaurants all over the world. Quite a nonachievement. This man is ridiculous.

Stop. Don’t get overexcited. “Calm down, dear, it’s only a chef.” He’s Grant MacPherson, culinary director and head chef of Sandy Lane, Barbados. His food is unbelievably awful.

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.

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

Ichirouganaim

I hate to look at the Barbados tourists site that give the history of Barbados.The ones that talk of Columbus discovering these islands and the other foolish tales that the Bob Marley and Burning Spear called 'mis-education'.I agree with them as a matter of fact Burning Spear referred to Christopher Columbus as a 'damn blasted liar'.Thank god for Rastafari. One of the funniest stories is the one of the bearded fig tree and the name Los Barbados which was supposed to mean 'the bearded one'. In the words of Gary Cole from the book reflections; The Colonization of Barbados is one of the darkest events and evil stories of modern history.Four centuries ago,Spanish and Portuguese slavers started to kidnap,kill and drive out the thousands of peaceful Indians found on the island the Indians called Ichirouganaim.The exact location of the island was a carefully kept secret but Spanish and Portuguese soldiers and sailors knew the island as the barbarous island,"Los B
