Yes, this isn’t about San Francisco, but remember it’s my wild weekend where I get to talk about anything and today I wanted to talk about Whitecaps in Barbados. I have a couple of close friends who have purchased a three bedroom house there that when they aren’t visiting they rent it out. They needed a website to best display the house so who do they come to…me of course.Yes, this isn’t about San Francisco, but remember it’s my wild weekend... more

I could tell you all about it-words aren't sufficient to describe it. Nested in the realms of the Caribbean sea lies the beautiful- stunning island of Jamaica West Indies. Amazing tropical weather and white sandy beaches-it is so serene.
Chill at one of Jamaica's 5 stars luxury hotel or a private villa overlooking the sea.
Sex on the Beach can be so fantastic-can have it as a drink or JUST DO IT--Don't you deserve this?

For botanists, it doesn't get more exciting than this - after 75 years, the Titan Arum plant has unfurled its leaves and is in full bloom. For curious crowds who gathered, they perhaps realised that a once-in-a-lifetime look is more than enough - thanks to its pungent odour of rotting flesh. The flower, nicknamed 'Corpse flower', bloomed late on Good Friday at the University of Basel, Switzerland and is expected to remain open until Easter Sunday. http://www.makeahistory.com/index.php/bizzareweird/42945-worlds-smelliest-flower-opens-for-the-first-time-in-75-yearsFor botanists, it doesn't get more exciting than this - after 75 years, the Titan... more

South Coast Blues
Time zeroes in on a bad decisional choice
Fishing lodge culture stands in one voice
Rig platform once offered its telltale sign
They didn't listen, maybe greenback blind
Green sea turtle and dolphin paid the price
Shrimp and oyster made the South Coast nice
Innkeepers, shopkeepers in places once quaint
Spill millions of barrels, it's hard not to taint
Sign a release now under conditions distraught
Food on your table proud big oil for you bought
Livability's liability alive in your neighborhood
Put it back the way it was, make that a likelihood
They dig a relief well, but little relief for you
Vast expanses South Coast no longer blue
Food chains come to call on your dinner plate
Fishermen's children, boat builders ponder fate
Fear of oil comes knocking at vacationer's door
Fun ties to the water, beach access a new chore
Unexpecteds still surface to trigger harsh words
Fishermen expect to pick tar balls, help seabirds
Big company came and sent oil into the waters
Livelihoods may go extinct for sons and daughters
Pull your last redfish speckled trout Barataria Bay
Old pirates, new horizons, ways of life drift away
