Barbados bounces back

Barbados bounces back - Telegraph: "It takes a lot to ruffle the waters on the dreamy west coast of Barbados, but recently ripples have been sent across the island’s swimming pools by the news that Sir Cliff Richard is to sell his £6m Sugar Hill mansion.
Upkeep of the six-bedroom villa with swimming pool and tennis court has started to get a bit much for the 70-year-old singer. He wants somewhere that takes a little less looking after. The good news, though, is that it will still be on Barbados.
“Sir Cliff is looking to buy a lock-up apartment elsewhere on the island,” confirms his representative in Britain. “That said, it hasn’t been built yet.”"

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
