The Latest from Jamaica!


Asafa Powell Clocks the World Fastest Time This Year
Our own World record holder Asafa Powell, won the 100 meters today with the fastest sprint in the world this year.

Powell led from start to finish to clock 9.97 seconds in his season-opening return from a bout with knee tendinitis at the Artur Takac Memorial meet.

Churandy Martina, of the Netherlands Antilles, was second in 10.11, and our own Michael Frater came in third in 10.19.

Asafa Powell is included in my Top 30 most Famous People from Jamaica.

Rastafari to represent Jamaica at Miss Universe Tonight
Jamaica will watch with anticipation tonight as our first, and the world's first rastafarian contestant, represents Jamaica tonight.

I myself is really excited! Regardless of where she will place, she still made us proud.

See my page on Beauty in Jamaica for more on the beauties who have represented us.

Jamaica Horticultural group wins Silver Gilt
Hmm, another title for Jamaica. The Jamaica Horticultural Society was awarded Silver-Gilt at the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show in London last week for their Ode to Old Jamaica display of fragrant flora, plants and fruits.

Now in its 12th year of exhibition, the Jamaica Horticultural Society (JHS) display was led by Jamaican floral designer and horticulturist Pearl Wright who was delighted to receive the recognition from the Royal Horticultural Society. Way to go JA!

My SBI Story!

I can't tell you how much I am excited with this Website and the kudos and congratulations I receive from my friends and family members are spoiling me now! :-).

Every page, every paragraph, and every word was typed by these fingers! And looking back now, I can't believe I have gotten this far!

But, honestly, I couldn't have done it all by myself. SBI! was my guide every step of the way.

They made my progress almost seemless but more importantly, FUN!
