Some people hoard books, Caribbean people hoard plastic bags. 

Ivy Richardson | BuzzFeed —-  A view from Jamaicans in the U.K. 

  1. Ginger and Lemon Tea Solves Everything.

Ken Corsbie: The Caribbean’s Quintessential Theatre Celebrity – by Francis Quamina Farrier

 – by Francis Quamina Farrier

On March 27, Nations around the world, observed “World Theatre Day.” This annual event was established in 1962 by the International Theatre Institute (ITI) and supported by UNESCO. In this article, I am pleased to throw the spotlight on veteran Guyanese dramatist Ken Corsbie, who has been in the theatre arts for over seven decades.

Now in his early 90s, Ken Corsbie has been a member of the Theatre Guild of Guyana from its inception. However, his initial activities with theatre arts actually began at the Taitt’s Yard, now known as Cara Lodge on Quamina Street, previously Murray Street.        Continue reading

COMMENTARY: BAR JOKES AND GRAMMAR – BY Linda K Sienkiewicz Blog

COMMENTARY

What’s better than bar jokes for English majors, grammar nerds and writers? When they also serve as mini grammar lessons! These jokes are all over the internet, and unfortunately, I couldn’t find the author. But here they are for you, with my lessons:

A dangling participle walks into a bar. Enjoying a cocktail and chatting with the bartender, the evening passes pleasantly.

A dangling participle is one intended to modify a noun that is not actually present in the text. The second sentence reads as if the evening is enjoying the cocktail and chatting, which makes no sense.        Continue reading

Thought for Today: We have failed… – by Rosaliene Bacchus

Rosaliene BacchusFROM: Three Worlds One Vision

We have failed…through our lack of responsible awareness…and thus added to suffering around the world. All of us are cripples—some physically, some mentally, some emotionally. We must, therefore, strive cooperatively to create a new world. There is no time left for destruction, for hatred, for anger. We must build, in hope and joy and celebration.

~ Ivan Illich (1926-2002), Austrian philosopher and former Roman Catholic priest, as quoted in Wisdom Through the Ages: From Great Minds by Gary Girdhari, A Guyana Journal Publication, New York City, USA, 2018.
