Thursday Thoughts

January 29, 2015

Good morning everyone, we hope your Thursday is going well. The countdown to the weekend continues. Hey, this is the weekend for the big Super Bowl in the US. I really don’t have a favorite in the game although I suppose I should cheer for the “Seahawks”!!! Personally I like the commercials, some of them are so funny. I was checking the weather maps this morning and there are no storms out there that we are concerned with, hopefully I can continue to give you that same report until hurricane season starts again June 1st. In the news, several Democratic Senators from the US have proposed some legislation to end the embargo with Cuba, on the other side of the isle however the Republicans are saying things might be moving too fast. We will have to just wait and watch what will happen. Just a reminder, Joey and I will be gone tomorrow but we will be back with you on Monday. See you on the TV. Have a great day everyone.

Good morning and happy hump day everyone (I never get tired of saying that) hope everything is going well. There are no major storms out there today. Remember we will start the Hurricane Season on June 1st. Joey and I will be headed to Curacao to broadcast the annual carnival in a couple weeks, we are looking forward to seeing a lot of old friends on the island. Carnival is such a big part of the history and culture of the Caribbean, if you get a chance to experience it we highly recommend it. Carnival week will be seen again this year on One Caribbean Television, another reason if you don’t receive the channel that you should contact your cable provider and ask them if they would add it to your lineup. In the news, Lacey Webb is recovering from her shark bite in the Bahamas, she was bitten by a bull shark. Miriah Carey will be performing in the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival that begins tomorrow thru Saturday. This will be Mirias first performance in the Caribbean.
