  1. Bajan Reporter gains popularity, while Barbadian blogging wows the BBC! (Bragging)

    Last time I spoke of my Technorati rank was at 401-K, well it peaked to 385-K then slipped back to 399-K! In the time since I used a counter I have had close to 2500 visitors and now they stay almost 3 minutes per stop! But you never really know or understand how far blogging […]

  2. Plans to close Broad Street again? Thought it was free-flow for CWC 2007?

    Merchants from Broad Street want to close Broad Street to try and cash in on the CWC 2007 spectators leaving Super 8 matches – how does this reconcile with the Local Organising Committee (LOC) wishing to ensure that traffic remains flowing freely during the Cup? The LOC with the Chamber of Commerce held a Town […]

  3. Barbados Free Press locates a snag in CWC 2007: “Terrorists” from Delhi, sanctioned by BTA Head

    Over the years, the Tourism Authority has come under fire for many things – ex-president Earlyn Shuffler‘s salary as well as the “Dream Team” of Tom Hill & Errol Griffith (who each stayed a year then split); their treatment of Hugh Foster & Calvin Hope when restructuring as well as numerous little marketing glitches (eg: […]

  4. Follow-Up: Polished Hoe – Bajan ads on Canadian TV

    She has played Storm‘s voice in the animated X-Men, been a judge as well as a legal secretary on TV, played a jealous stifling mother in Honey with Jessica Alba… Now she gets to return to her Caribbean, and – even better, her Bajan roots… To my mind, she has never wanted to be anything […]

  5. Doesn’t Fontabelle look lovely? Not!

    Wow, Fontabelle‘s main road is so smooth, a baby’s bottom seems pock-marked in comparison… I know everyone is glad the Oval is complete unlike Sherbourne! Ok, before I am struck by lightning, let’s let you decide for yourself now that K-day is tomorrow – after all, aren’t pictures worth a 1,000 words? Oh, and by […]

  7. CWC 2007 – lacks so much buzz, that apiaries are welcome

    The most damning piece of commentary on the current status of the CWC 2007, has to be from Felicia Persaud, usually I try to break down what is being said into bite-sized chunks, but her ingredients are too rich to be delivered in any other way than the original multi-course meal, while this editorial is […]

  9. Barbados for sale or rent, cheap!

    As you may well be aware of, right here will be used by cricket fans as a base for CWC 2007 with matches taking place over 8 Caribbean Islands. This created a previously unheard rush on Bajan property both in rental and sales. Barbados is almost now at capacity with limited rental property available. This […]

  10. More currying Indian cricket fans’ favour

There’s more… According to NDTV – “The Barbados Tourism Authority is making all efforts to woo the Indian cricket fans to the island nation for the 2007 Cricket […]

  11. Ozzies, Barmy Army – even the Indians are going to spend some rupee to make whoopee for CWC 2007

    So, I have heard that the breweries here have been stockpiling their inventory since about September last year to be ready for the Brits and the Ozzies (when the Barmy Army was here last time we ran out of foamy) – at the risk of sounding racist; are we going to stock up on geera […]

  12. Too many accidents – Drive Carefully should be part of the New Year’s Resolutions for all

    As 2006 gets ready to implement its living will and 2007 is readying its birth certificate, apart from death and taxes being certain – so is traffic! With the onset of the Cricket World Cup, I have no plans to assay Bridgetown if I can avoid it! Especially Fontabelle and Kensington – it’s bad enough […]

  13. Mojo’s: Breeding Ground for Bajan Alternative Underground

    Mojo is now the happening place for those of you who want something different from the Jamaican dub and US rap which has obliterated the Trini pan and Bajan calypsoes. This may be alternative, but it is homegrown and not imported stuff! Recently the Worthing establishment was graced by an impromptu session from Fitzroy Jeffers […]
