Lyndhurst commented: My mother and father Gwen and Egbert Spencer instructed my brothers and sisters to attend Sunday school as part of our upbringing. We rarely missed a Sunday. On one Sunday afternoon, I asked permission to miss Sunday school. My mom asked why? I told her, Rev. Martin Luther King was going to make an address to the US nation, and I wanted to witness it. She gave me the yes permission. The love she showed each of us has paid off handsomely. May their soles rest in peace. ... read more

Couples, Tower Isle, St Mary Hotel Review

written by owen, published 2020-Oct-06, comment

In spite of the low occupancy rate during the current time we had a great time at the hotel. The food was great, the service was exceptional. The property is well maintained with a literal rain forest on the property. Now might be the best time to travel because you have all the conveniences, hot tubs and pools to yourself. Its difficult to book tours and excursions that require large groups but the more people you bring the better. Review 5/5 highly recommended.

Norman Manley International Airport

written by owen, published 2020-Sep-20, comment

I needed to clear some autoparts at the customs warehouse so I stopped by the airport to see how its looking. I'm not sure when we will be able to fly like normal again but one thing is for sure customs tax on auto-parts has left my pocket dry. Tax was 65% of the cost of the items and discounts are not used in the calculation. Hopefully these front end parts last me for a good amount of time (rear engine mount, drop links, tie-rod ends, anti-rollbar bushings). Old car maintenance struggles.

Anyway here are some pictures from the airport. It was a rainy overcast day. The best kind to get reflections of the water. Only a few flights coming in now and there is some kinda app that you have to use to get clearance to land - not sure if its just for tourists or locals too but the whole thing is busy work.

Picking Ackee in the country

written by owen, published 2020-Aug-28, comment

You have to blanch these ackees or they turn to mush. I am not a fan of ackees but I do like fried breadfruit. Boiled breadfruit is trash.
