Intro

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

Hi there!

I've finally gotten some much needed rest.
Correction: Not really rest, but some time-off from my day job.

I had two weeks to recoup and rejuvenate for the next big projects: year-end at work, website updates, and the next module at school.

In fact, I just came back from a week's stay in the US where I had loads of fun.

Would you believe me if I tell you I almost overlooked this subscription? I certainly could not afford that :-)

Anyways, lots to share this round again. The latest on (from) Jamaica, the website, some Jamaican Jokes, plus some insight into my US trip.

So without any hesitation ...let's get rolling!

Did you Know?

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

  • ...that Jamaica was the first country in the Western world to construct a railway?

    This happened even before the United States! Only 18 years after Britain.

  • ...that the town of Black River in St. Elizabeth was the first in Jamaica to have electricity?

    This was supplied by the Leyden brothers in 1893. Power was generated from a plant which had a huge furnace and boiler.

    Logwood, which was a major export of the parish, was used to generate steam from the engine which provided the power.

Well, now you know!

  • Use Deep Links To Increase WebPage Ranking

    Have you ever wondered how some websites can record hundreds of thousands of visitors and some only a handful? There's really no secret.

    One of the main determinants is the number of quality links pointing to the site.

    In other words, the number links coming from other reputable websites.

    If you don't already have a site for yourself, share this with your friends, or even your boss. It will make a big difference to the number of visitors the search engines sends and ultimately income.

    Here's my article on deep linking.
