I woke up on my birthday (January 30th) to find a Direct Message in my Twitter account from the Jamaica Pegasus. Who knew? They were inviting me to celebrate my birthday at their weekly Tuesdays on the Grill. How could I turn down an offer like this? So I immediately sent them my info through twitter account for booking. I must say thanks to the Jamaica Pegasus and Ms. Simpson who extended the invitation.

The night was wonderful. Tuesdays on the Grill goes from 7:00 pm till around 10:30 pm at the Pegasus. I had class that evening (Supervisory Management) which I remembered only the day before. However, I went after – my class ended at 8:30 pm. It was not my first time eating at the Pegasus; I normally meet with friends there for a good time. The food is always great and at the right price if you’re eating out.

On Tuesday night from the music to the food to the ambience it was lovely. It is right by the poolside which makes it more picturesque. The evening was well attended I might add – full house enjoying the food prepared by the Jamaica Pegasus.

The evening was magical. Certainly if you are in Kingston – the place to be is the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel – Kingston’s Preferred Hotel.

PALIN CABINET

Sarah Palin’s interview with Oprah Winfrey will be a hit. It will have the media talking for the next two weeks and beyond. The political pundits who spewed hate against this lady will cringe when their deepest fears are realized when she inevitably runs for President the next time around. Please clear the thought of a second term for Obama. The economic situation will change all those dreams. The fact is Sarah Palin represents to the ‘tee’ the ideal Republican Party candidate and could be a force to reckon with if she makes that decision to do the right thing. I am compassionate to those folks who today think Palin is not dignified or unqualified to serve as President. That would mean the others who served and is serving in that same position aren’t worthy themselves. The Palin brand will see traction in the coming years and it gives her more time to create the right image for the post. Do not forget a day in politics is a long time.

Obama

So Obama faces a decision to send more troops to the war torn Middle East country. This decision will define his presidency and I can’t wait to what is going to come of it. Obama campaigned to end the war. I don’t know if this is a broken promise but I would have loved to see him with the balls to leave Afghanistan and really bring about that change he preached – campaign and joked about.

 

 

 

Entertainment

I got to watch The Kardashians yesterday – the one featuring the infamous wedding with Khloe and Lamar. I am a fan of the show – have always been. Don’t we love the drama? There is one thing I have noticed from the show. Of all the drama we have known the family to deliver you get the picture family values are at the foundation of this family. Of course, we can imagine the disgust and quarrels a family goes through when someone plans to get married after meeting the other under a month. We normally think the person is crazy because of the sudden decision. All in all, families are best when they come together and share the joy of others.

The tip for the week is “Do not nag your partner.” Quit it.

Water Cooler Ed. 2

Welcome to the second edition in the series of the Water Cooler. This feature will highlight what’s hot, topical and up for discussion. Here we go.

Politics

Last week Barack Obama called a special meeting in the house to discuss his health care reform bill. Oh how we love having this debate, to divide us all. Obama has lost and is still losing the health care debate issue. If we are not suffering from Alzheimer’s then we should remember Obama called a special press conference to talk about his health care bill. Well, that did not work. His attempt failed in that press conference because the media was not debating his position on health care instead they left discussing his stupidity comment about the police force and his colleague after not having the details before him.

This time someone or something would have taken the spotlight; so said so done. Republican Joe Wilson in the middle of Obama’s speech shouted – You lie! This outburst came at a time when Obama was making the point that illegal immigrants would have no space in his reform bill.

Later that evening Rep. Joe Wilson issued a personal apology to Barack Obama, which he accepted. You would think this issue would be put to rest since the two parties involved have spoken about the issue and have moved on. But no, we must politicize the event and make it an issue when it isn’t. As history will tell us, the opposing party is always a pain for the government; it will take a miracle for both to agree on a controversial topic because of their different beliefs. In speeches like the one presented by Obama one should have expected boos, nays, and other outbursts.

The democrats have used this opportunity to seek political points and it may work for the short term. After all, they are desperate now to for some needed boost. They want to censure Rep. Joe Wilson for his outburst if he doesn’t deliver an apology to the house. If I were Rep. Joe Wilson I would not. I am not endorsing what his actions. What he did was uncalled for. The democrats have seemed to forgotten their lewd and nasty outbursts in the State of the Union speech delivered by Bush. Oh how we saw that as normal and acceptable but when anyone opposes the ‘mighty to save’ Obama people are out of place and must be punished. It would not be for too long before you heard the word race. Black publishers are tooting that popular word. Why is it racists to call out someone on an issue? It isn’t. What would be racist is if Rep. Joe Wilson had said ‘you lie boy’, that would have been a racial comment.

Bigger Issue

Black groups in the US are now pushing for a boycott of South Carolina – where Rep. Joe Wilson is from. Can you believe it? An American group boycotting American products – have you ever of this? If this isn’t misguided tactics, un-American and stupidity at its highest, tell me what it is. At this time when the American economy needs a boost and an injection of a stimulus package they are planning to kill it. Is that the only way they could punish a man for opposing Obama? It would appear that governments around the world are seeking other ways to express their disagreements apart from heated debates. They are fighting and acting worse than Rep. Joe Wilson. Is this the future of political debates in the house?

Travel

Jamaica is a beautiful place filled with spectacular locations and lovely views of the ocean around it. On my trip to the second city and the city that visitors love Montego Bay; I took some pictures that were simply amazing (the actual view). I do not know if that transpired on camera, that’s another issue. Take a look!
