Intro

-------------------------

Hi again,

I am talking to you on a rather unusual Sunday morning here in Jamaica.

It's kinda 'eery quiet', the skies overcast, minimal wind, and very little activity - human or otherwise.

I guess we, and nature, are mindful to the fact that hurricane Tomas looms and will cause some disaster - if continues on it's projected path.

But it's not all gloom, I have that, but also some positive and exciting news to share with you as well.

Ready?

Great! Keep reading...
