Looking around the net this morning we found some excellent articles – including some we really disagree with. Here’s a sampling…
Bajan Reporter has the story of a cowardly pit bull that is regularly beaten up by a chicken – but on another story we have to strongly disagree with Ian Bourne, who seems to admire Jah Cure for standing up to “adversity” while forgetting the woman he raped at gunpoint. (Bajan Reporter article on Jah Cure here)
Over at Barbados Underground, David proclaims Barbados Cricket At Death’s Door and we couldn’t agree more. Frankly we think there is an excellent case to be made that Cricket World Cup did more harm to the sport than anything else in recent times – or perhaps CWC was merely a symptom of a deeper malaise. If you love what cricket used to be, and could be again, have a read of David’s article.
Looking at the official blog of the governing DLP Democratic Labour Party, we see…
…Nothing. The DLP shut down their blog on January 13th and haven’t bothered with their online readers and community since. Yup, all that two-way communication with voters is of no further use now that they have power. Poor show, DLP.
At least the BLP Barbados Labour Party blog is alive – even if the party and its co-leaders are in disarray while former government ministers worriedly consider their Swiss bank balances.
Keltruth Blog asks “How many Bajans can afford Sandy Lane?“ as it considers a new move by the Cuban government to allow citizens to stay at tourist hotels.
Famous Model At Mullins Beach?
Mullins Bay Blog has an excellent photo spread of the damage to Mullins Beach during the recent big storm and then a story of things getting back to normal with a fashion shoot involving some famous woman who we don’t recognize. Hey… the place where she’s staying is $12k a night (gulp!) so maybe you’ll be able to recognize her. We can’t. When you arrive at the blog, click on the small photo “Picking Up The Pieces” and you’ll be taken to a large photo of the model and fashion shoot.
Amazing Nature Story At Living In Barbados Blog
We’re not big fans of nature documentaries etc., but you really have to see the trailer for a BBC Documentary linked to by Living in Barbados Blog. With the advent of new, smaller video cameras we’ve seen all sorts of new discoveries on TV lately – from animals that we thought were extinct to behaviours never before seen. (I remember last summer seeing a documentary where they put a tiny video camera on the back of a cockroach. Who’d have thought that watching an hour of a cockroach crawling around in a kitchen would be so interesting?)
Anyway, Living In Barbados has linked to a simply amazing documentary showing video of penguins like you’ve never seen before. Absolutely breathtaking. You simply must have a look. Living In Barbados Blog
