    Oops – Typo. The first Nostalgia Night is Friday June 24th 7pm at Sidewalk Cafe.
    I will give a report after on outcome.
    Am heartened with the effort by several Guyanese in the diaspora – capturing / recording /preserving our social and cultural history in video / power point etc.
    Note however recently that a viewer of the guyana video enquires who is the background.
    It’s Dave Martins of course and the classic collection of Guyana pictures with rare footage from 35mm yesteryear are treasures, A liitle more identification of the pictures reflecting the relevance/ time line / with credits would have made the videos …Eternal Treaures.
    Ya think it easy…Godfrey Chin godchin2@gmail.com

    Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to grasp so much
    about this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with some % to pressure the message house a little bit, however instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.
