Guyana History: Clonbrook Beach –  By Geoff Burrowes

Clonbrook Beach –   By Geoff Burrowes

        There was an air of suppressed excitement all week- everybody felt it! Our mothers talked in hushed voices on their black bakelite home phones (that’s all there was in those days – no one had ever heard of a mobile or cell phone)!

        It was in the background of every game of chaser or cricket and our fathers topped the oil in their cars and made sure the tires were properly inflated.

        Our mothers made sure that there was an adequate supply of mauby, ginger beer, sorrel and pine drink in the earthernware jugs in the kitchen and the kitchen was filled with the sweet odours of fudge, cake and sugar cake, both pink and white and brown chipped coconut!        Continue reading

Ugly American, meet Beautiful Barbados – Barbados Today Editorial

— Barbados Today Editorial

One of the greatest social observers of the Victorian era – an age in which life was nasty, brutish and short – once remarked: “A great man shows his greatness by the way he treats little men.”

Perspicacious as the Scottish philosopher, essayist and polymath notably were, he would be no seer or prophet in our modern era of dulled sensibilities, muted sensitivities, coarse and violent ideas, and cheapened life.

We have been raised to expect the lowest of the low to lurk in bushes, in the corridors of prisons and the gutters of ghettoes. But now, ugly thought and speech are being normalised in the highest corridors of power and in the most powerful nation where braggadocio has usurped statesmanship. We consider it our solemn duty to condemn it here as it begins to strike out from one nation to a neighbour, a member of our CARICOM family.              Continue reading
