Guyana History: DAYS ON THE BASE – by Dave Martins + Music Video

December 16, 2018 ·  DAYS ON THE BASE  by Dave Martins        Credits Stabroek NEWS

The preliminary photos of our revamped airport terminal at Timehri, remind me of the time I spent there after I graduated from Saint Stanislaus College in Georgetown. It was our only international airport, and while the name of the place was actually Atkinson Field, from the time when the Americans created a base there during World War Two, Guyanese didn’t refer to it that way.

To us it was “The Base” and it became a coveted place for a weekend visit (providing you got the precious visitor’s pass). I had been introduced to it while I was still at Saints; my eldest sister Theresa had married Joe Gonsalves, the Fire Chief at The Base, and I visited them often, and ended up living with them when I got a job at B. G. Airways, working in the office and occasionally going on flights as a Flight Clerk to the interior dealing with passengers and cargo manifests.          Continue reading

In keeping with my end-of-year tradition, I feature a song on my Poetry Corner December 2018. During this year of growing division in the USA, the hip hop song “We Could Be Free” by Vic Mensa captured my attention. It’s the thirteenth track on Mensa’s first, full-length, studio album, The Autobiography, released on July 28, 2017.

An American rapper, singer, and songwriter, Vic Mensa was born Victor Kwesi Mensah on June 6, 1993, in Chicago, Illinois. He grew up in the good part of the Hyde Park neighborhood within a sheltered home with two parents, both educators. His white American mother and Ghanaian father, an economics professor at the University of Chicago, wanted their son to go to college. But the young Vic dreamed of becoming a rock star.

With adolescence came exposure to the…

Memories of Christmas in B.G; in the 1940s, 1950s – By Geoff Burrowes + Xmas Music Video

Christmas Memories of a Little Boy in B.G….

– By Geoff Burrowes

My mother liked to laugh and that set the mood in our home!

To me, her eldest son, she was the most beautiful thing in the world. She was young and like all the members her family, the Learmonds, good looking. She had twinkling brown eyes and dark brown hair. And she loved Christmas!

Christmas in our home was special. It was a time of Santa Claus and a Christmas tree and coloured lights, treats such as fudge and black cake and boiled sweets. Pine drink and mauby  and sorrel were set in large earthenware jugs and the wonderful smells that accompanied this labour and the cooking permeated the house, spiced with a wonderful scence of excitement and anticipation!      Continue reading

Shakira and Michael Caine 2014

I always knew that Guyana had beautiful women. After all we produced Shakira (Baksh) Caine, the wife of Sir Michael Caine, the well-known British actor. Let me tell you a little story – all true.

When I came to Canada in July 1967 I was President of Guyana Jaycees. I returned home in August to tie up some loose ends. The Guyana Jaycees were at that time running the Miss Guyana Contest. …….    I was asked to be a judge in the contest. I do not recall how many contestants there were but I chose Shakira as did the majority of the judges – I believe there were three or five judges. She was crowned Miss Guyana and represented Guyana at the Miss World Contest in London that year where she placed third.       Continue reading
