Happy New Year 2014

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

I want to share my heartful appreciation and gratitude to all my website subscribers, fans and friends for their continued dedication, love and support in 2013.

Outside of achieving scores and scores of fresh links, mentions and endorsements from other reputable companies, schools and associations, your favorite little Jamaican website has jumped to a PR4 Google Rank!

That has confirmed us as the top non-media website in Jamaica, competing with the best in the world for credible, down to earth information on (or about) Jamaica.

But all this happened because other viewers like you.

Ironically, many times I don't feel like it (I know you might think otherwise) but the warm and encouraging words from you my site viewers is what has inspired me to do more - and more.

The feedback from Norm on the Jamaican folk songs was one of them that I certainly won't forget!

I feel so blessed that I am able to touch so many lives while enjoying what I like to do(thanks SBI).

On a personal note, myself and family enjoyed relative good health- and some some good fortune too. And for the first in a string of years, we didn't lose a close relative. To God be the glory!

And despite the tons of work - we made some quality time for family -my immediate family as well as the extended family.

My visit to Grandma earlier in December was probably the highlight of all of them though as we unveiled a lovely family tree during her birthday celebration - that made her cry.

And yes, we ate lots of good Jamaican 'country' food! I am still thanking Auntie Betty for those lovely Jamaican Fried Fish!

I won't pretend that 2013 was all not sweet and dandy though, and I suspect the same for you.

But I hope that, like me, you'll strive to learn from the dissapointments, celebrate the good momements & aachievements and look forward with great enthusiasm and positive expectations.

By the way, I ran into this little quote and I decided to share it with you.

It says...

"In this New Year, I wish that you have a happy January, a lovely February, a peaceful March, a stress-free April, a fun-filled May, and Joy that last from June to November, and finally an amaizing December!"

Cute eeeh?

I have already confidently declared that 2014 will be my best year yet - Personally and Business!

And I expect you to say, and believe, the same for yourself my friends!

So all the best to you and yours, and despite whatever might be happening in business and economy, my wish for you is that 2014 will also be YOUR best year yet!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR my friends!!

Calling in the New Year
by: John Blenkiron

While most people blow on paper horns at midnight on New Year's Eve the sound of the Abenga (conch shell)lets the crowd hear the Jamaican style of celebration. Big Up to the whole of Jamaica at home and abroad as we see the end of the old year and welcome in the new one. Big Up Wellesley and Family for keeping us linked together wherever we may be.
