State game licenses in the bag

Got the necessary state game licenses this morning. Forestry division has got to computerize its’ operations. Hand writing every single application and license is archaic, labour-intensive, frustrating–to applicant and issuer alike-and a waste of time, energy, skill, paper and human resources. It is probably mind numbing to the employees of the division.


A major helicopter company called me today, confirming that my name would be placed on their list of responders in the event of an aviation disaster. Naturally I’m thrilled, but wish them a perfect safety record. I’m only on the secondary responders list, but that’s good enough. Having worked on four international airport disaster drills has helped prep me. I have also been called out to the scenes of numerous vehicular accidents, shootings and violent protests. Many involved fatalities.

Now if only I could convince them to provide me with an entire safety kit…


Saw Miss Universe 1998 Wendy Fitzwilliam at a function today. She is even more beautiful than when she won in 1998. One hopes that she has the ‘beauty longevity’ of Janelle ‘Penny’ Commissiong and Giselle La Ronde-West.

TSTT dialup too slow

Not posting as frequently as necessary, as TSTT dialup has been so slow recently, that some sites are not accessible. Awaiting a modem for the Blink broadband service. The TSTT rep said there’d be as much as a one month wait. We’ll see how that works out.

TSTT is owned by Cable & Wireless, GORTT and individual shareholders (through NEL). Bashing TSTT is no good for any citizen, as we all have a vested interest in making the entity successful. They’ve also got a rough deal because of TATT’s insistence that the ‘playing field be level’. Apparently TATT has made TSTT’s accommodations with respect to Digicel so onerous that the field is not level, but tilted in Digicel’s favour. You can do your own research on that. There’s also talk of a former TSTT manager who was asked to leave the company and is now a very senior TATT exec with an axe to grind.
