Nuthin’ to it…
Sitting here with a Banks beer enjoying the sunset, I can see the ocean but can’t hear it. The #11 ZR just levitated by with the sounds of some Marley trailing it in the dust. They aren’t supposed to do that anymore, or so we heard – but how could it be the number eleven without some chords?
Earlier, a Bico (ice cream) truck went down the road playing it’s little song, so the boy and I ran out and stopped it and had a little before-dinner treat. (Don’t tell mum, she’ll have to pretend to be vex.)
I am very mellow this evening – far more mellow than the Minister of Tourism who, a friend says, could be heard screaming down the hall just after his mid-day break at The Savannah. Something about a Brass Tacks and words we can’t dare print here lest we cause Auntie Moses to administer a flogging.
Surfing here and there, we found some new and wonderous blogs and websites this afternoon. Here they are…
Tales of the Jones family who have recently moved from Washington USA to Barbados for some sort of diplomatic or academic posting. Nice people who share some of their adventures and photos through their blog. Welcome to BIM, folks!
Gordon Mullings runs Kairosfocus Blog out of somewhere in the Caribbean… perhaps Jamaica? He has been commenting recently on BFP and today took on the subject of why God allows bad things to happen to good people. Gordon looks like one of those fanatical Christians who actually believe upon Jesus and not just on Sunday morning when mama drags him out of bed. I guess worse accusations could be made about someone.
Reminds me of a preacher I heard many years ago and a tract that someone shoved in my hand one Wednesday night when all I wanted to do was sneak out the back and meet a certain little lady at Grape Hall. The title of the tract was “If You Were Accused Of Being A Christian, Would A Court Have Enough Evidence To Convict?”
Probably not this week.
Interesting movie trailer of a documentary film about indoctrination at American Universities. Sure, I’d love to see the full documentary. Wonder if they would dare to show it at UWI?
And now… off to work I go!
