Please permit me to inform you that on March 12, 2018, I celebrated my Eightieth Birthday. I am hard pressed to realize it, since it seems to me as though it was only last year that I celebrated my 18th birthday. Now here I am at eighty years of age!

Goodness, Gracious, me! So it gives me great pleasure to relate to you, just a few of the things which happened in British Guiana/Guyana and the rest of the World, during the early and later portions of the past eight decades, and which I enjoy talking about from time to time.      Continue reading

Guyana’s former sugar estate lands available for oil sector-related real estate development

By: Denis Chabrol – Demerara Waves – March 11, 2018

Guyana is making available large swathes of former sugar estate lands for constructing upscale houses and business complexes for the burgeoning oil and gas sector, but a top government official cautions that the lands cannot be held indefinitely for speculation.

“These developments will come with a time-frame so you can’t take an acre or ten acres and say you will build a high-rise or a condominium and take ten years to build it. We’ll specify the time frame for you to start building,” Head of the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited’s (NICIL) Special Purpose Unit (SPU), Colvin Heath-London said.       Continue reading

Guyana Is About to Open Up Pandora’s Barrel

Expats hold the key to whether its big offshore oil deposits bring riches — or ruin.
Wedged between Brazil and Venezuela, Guyana could easily go unnoticed. It has fewer than 750,000 people and a per capita income of $4,300, half the regional average, qualifying it as the hemisphere’s third-poorest nation.
 At the moment, Guyana also might be its luckiest. Having struck big oil offshore starting in 2015, industry experts reckon total reserves at around 2 billion barrels. That bounty could make Guyana immeasurably rich and Latin America’s biggest producer in less than a decade – or just another Trump-hole.   Continue reading
