I Hate Night Shift
Shona was out the door early this morning about 15 minutes after I arrived home from night shift. There’s not much of a family life some weeks when both of us are working opposite hours, but what can you do? As a couple, we are making more money than we’ve ever made before but we still have zero savings. All those plans we made to be in a certain position at the end of the year are long gone and there is no waste or extravagance to blame. Between the increased costs of just about everything (especially food) and some unexpected major car trouble, this year has been bad financially.
I don’t expect much sympathy from our readers because it seems that everyone is in much the same position. Just a bad year in many ways, but I thank God for my family and friends because I would be lost without them. (And a special thanks to Auntie Moses who is due any minute to look after the little one so Dada can get some sleep!)
Let’s see what interesting blogging bits I can find this morning…
Thanks to Cliverton for looking after the blog last night. I see that he couldn’t help himself and modified the title header with a little Thompson stick-man. I agree with one commenter who said “Priceless!”
Sarah Ann Gill – Cheese On Bread!
Cheese-On-Bread! blog looks at the life of Mrs. Sarah Ann Gill – a “free” black who was one of the defenders of the Methodist church in Barbados when that organisation was known for anti-slavery activities and worshiping “against the law” in houses. You know… much the same situation as Christians now face in Communist China and many Muslim countries.
Rihanna’s New Boyfriend – Bajan Reporter
Ah yes… we can’t go a week without mentioning Rihanna’s dress, new shoes, new dog or new boyfriend. But this week, we’ll rely upon Ian Bourne’s superior investigative abilities to determine the answer to the question, “Does she, or doesn’t she?”
The Constitutional Cricket Match – “Let’s Change The Rule Book” – Keltruth Blog
Once upon a time, there was an exciting cricket match at a big school in a small island. The lads were divided into two teams: the Indies, and the Percies. “Indies” stood for “Independents”, while “Percies” was short for “Perceived as Having Political Affiliations”.
… Keltruth Blog has something to say about the Government changing the laws and the Constitution whenever it suits them.
Government Backs Down On Changing Constitution – But You Have To Watch These Crooks Carefully!
Attorney General Dale Marshall now says that the government will not amend the Constitution to allow them to hand out jobs willy-nilly to party loyalists. (That was the plan, ya know!)
Do we believe Mr. Marshall?
Only about as far as we can see him when he takes his lady-friends out on his boat…
