Last Week... This Week

Just as quickly as the rain came on Friday evening, that's how quickly it disappeared by Sunday morning! Well, this is how I like the rain to fall, nice two days and then back to some sunshine. Long enough to moisturize the soil, yet short enough for me to wash an get my clothes dried on the line. The only problem with the rain, is that it makes your job so much harder when you have to work on a rainy day and you work for a Telecommunication company that relies heavily on JPS. But I survived the rainy weekend.

So it's Monday once again, the beginning of another promising week, full of unknowns. Judging from the events of last week, we need to brace ourselves here in Jamaica just in case this week turns out to be the same. What am I talking about? Well...

Trouble in SistaP Camp
After denying the evident rumors, Peter Phillips finally announced that he will once again challenge Sista P (Portia Simpson) for the presidency of the People's National Party. Despite the superficial unity displayed during the last general election, the rivalry between the Portia camp and the Phillips camp never died down. It only seemed to fester under the election blanket and has once again revealed itself. So once again these two factions of the same party will battle it out to see who will be the one to take down the ruling JLP party in the next general elections. but, as shown in the last battle for the top seat, these teams play dirty. So I guess Jamaica is in for some more, snarling, bickering and good ole cussing, because Sista P "nuh fraid a no man, no gyal..."

Oops... Olint Again!
Another famous alternative investment scheme comes under attack. Unlike it's counterpart Cash Minus (Cash Plus) and previous attach on it's operations, Olint is now under fire from the US authorities. it has been reported that US agents ordered Olint's Miami offices closed and ceased documents from the home of the head of the institution. this was also compounded when the authorities froze the company's assets in Turks and Caicos. This latest attach, send shock waves through the the hearts and minds of many Jamaicans who are all to familiar with the trauma caused by the fall of the defunct Cash Plus. Many Jamaican investors of Olint are holding there breath on this as some persons have gone all out and invested their entire life savings and properties into this risky high yield investment scheme. Well if we have a repeat of the Cash Plus fate, nuff people going ball.

Sun, Sea and... Weh Di Sand Deh?
Earlier this week 500 truckloads of sand miraculously disappeared from a 64 acre prime beachfront! Well according to the report, the 500 truckloads of sand were stolen from the property. I had to use the word miraculously as it is hard to understand how so much sand could be moved from one location without anyone knowing. After all we are not talking about some small pickups, we are talking about some big noisy trucks hauling white beach sand. Then again, this is a very unregulated, anything goes country, so it should not be surprising that so much sand could be transported without anyone paying attention to it, even the police. But it just seems fishy that some entity would massacre a beach like that. this cannot be the undoing of some little privateer, but there must be some big player behind this dastardly deed. the Jamaican Government and the private investor, ...yes it's no longer owned by the Jamaican people as with everything else..., are furious bout this magic trick, I mean this large scale theft. It will be interesting to see how this riddle pans out. but something fishy, and it's not the sea.

Thrown From Window... Here In Jamaica!
I am used to hearing news like this from the American media, as I always thought crazy things like these only happen in America... no offense to my American readers. But to my shock and horror I learned from the news that it happened here. A 28 year old woman was allegedly thrown from the washroom window of her 3rd floor apartment by her ex-boyfriend. What the hell! i just can't understand some men, they behave as if there is only one woman in the world and if the relationship doesn't work then the whole world will end and they go totally crazy! Yes one can be in love with someone and feel so strongly about that person but if the relationship ends or if the person cheats, that's not the end of the world. There are a lot more women out there, you only have to walk through Half Way Tree to see that for yourself! But still, there are some crazy, coke head men and women out there!

Rain!
To top off the weekend, probably the best thing to happen for the weekend depending on where you live, we finally had some rain to quench the parched land. A tropical system passed over the island bringing with it lightning, thunder, some wind and plenty showers of rain. I would elaborate on that, but I guess said enough about that already. But just in case you forgot, this should help.



What can I say, we live in an interesting country, with interesting people and interesting events. So are you ready for another week? Well, ready or not, it is here! Have a great week!

You know, I always fret when it rains, for I am still suffering from post-traumatic-Ivan-syndrome. I cannot romanticise the rain anymore, because of that 3 day traumatic event, that may reoccur between June to November of every year.

That being said, this was such a scintillating update! Rain, investment scandal, nefarious thieves with bulldozers and dump trucks; murder at 3 storeys...and back at rain....

Yes Stunner,the PNP in particular and Jamaican society in general will be in for some serious tracing and cussing during this battle for leadership of the party.It will be interesting to see how this political drama unfolds.By the way,is Pastor Phinn able to predict or prophesy who will be the winner of this contest?My guess is that he would go for the SKETEL.

Ohh that's where all this sand in my back yard came from/

I loved the rain. If only I had a beautifulw oman in my arms. As for the sand, some knows what's up, but won't talk. As for the battle of the two P's, I bet Portia will win again, 'cause Jamaicans tend to make decisions based on emotion and not logic, sad to say. And about the young woman, I'm still wondering why such a honey would be attracted to such a wacko?

OLINT sounds like nuff trouble

Jamaica is never short of drama.
I am glad there was not any major damage by the rain and see Dolly fixing to to hit Texas in the states. I just want it to be a quite season

Lawd know wi caa tek n more

I saw Sista P on television saying "I am the president, I am the president so I am not campaigning"
I can see my self shouting at the television saying " yes you are the president and thats why you need to campaign if you want to remain the president.

Peter Phillips seems to be surrounded by the real power brokers of the party. Solid as a rock they say. I notice that Mr Phillips is telling his biography. He is not such a great story tell and the story is not really unique but he is trying. Lets just say no Barrack Obama here. His story is about some reletive selling a few cows coupled with scholarships that allowed him to go to university.

I think he learned from the last campaign against Sista P not to let her play the "I am from humble begins card" or I WAS poor like you".

Good luck to them both I am cheering for jamaica.


All I can say is wow. Apparently team Portia and her surrogates will ensure she remains "the president"

As for Olint, I think this is more complex than most of us think or can comprehend. there is so much going on in relation to this alternative investment thing.

Bring back the sand is all I can say, bring it back. Thats the only thing. The beach need the sand.As far as I can see its a massive crime. 500 truck load of beach sand. Thats equivalent to Bush invading Jamaica under the disguise of terrorism and taking our white sand. I can not even fathom 500 truck loads of sand. who was counting?

Why would a guy through his girlfriend out the window. Did he think she was catwoman or something. Thats just crazy. I hope the law lean on him hard.

Lawd, Jamaica never short'a drama... Peter Phillips challenging Portia was like, the nation's worst kept secret... And the writing was on the wall for Olint. Cash Plus was a sign of things to come. Them think that because them a upper/middle class people them exempt from regulations?

PS You forgot to add that 900 people have been murdered here since January. And that they are now looking for brand-name policemen (like Reneto Adams) to come in and miraculously save the day...
