Intro

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

Happy New Year,

I hope the new year (and of course I) caught you in good spirits. It's just amazing to see 2009 come and gone so fast - isn't it?

I love the festivities, the sharing and the family togetherness, and just the cool soothing temperature at Christmas time, but this is the time I am stretched 150% - just too much happens!

At a national level though, December (and Christmas)2009 will be probably be remembered for the unfortunate crash, and miraculous survival of every single one on the American Airline 331 flight.

I have pictures of that, and lots more to share with you in this exciting edition.

I can't wait... so let's get rolling!

  1. Karen's Revitalizing Family Trip

    I really love Karen's story. She started by giving some tips then shared the great moments she had amidst the challenges. In all that you can feel her deep passion and appreciation of Jamaica, but she was real and honest all the way through.

    Here's her story.


  2. Christmas in Jamaica

    Yep, it is now history, but I wanted to give you some insight in what happens here during this time of the year- of course only if you are not already aware.

    Here's my article on Christmas in Jamaica.


  3. The Jamaican Fruit Cake

    This page accounted for well over 3000 page views for the month of December - the most visited during the period! Seems like there is something really special about this old time Jamaican favourite.

    Check out the recipe here and give it a try, will you?

  1. The American Airline 331 Crash

    It's a miracle! That's what many who saw the pictures of AA flight 331 or witnessed the wreckage are thinking, never mind the passengers and crew members!

  2. Annual Maroon Festival Kicks Off

    The 270th Accompong Maroon Festival will once again commemorate the legendary Maroons of Western Jamaica.

    Maroons are descendants of runaway slaves, who fled to Jamaica’s untouched South Coast in pursuit of freedom; they reside in Accompong to this day.
