Greetings On-Line Family
I want to thank each and every one of you (my on-line family) for “MAKING” my week last week. After last week’s e-mail blast there was an overwhelming amount of you who were interested in Actor Hill Harper's book "Letters To A Young Brother: Manifest Your Destiny", and actually purchased it. I had not previously discussed with my sister my intentions of placing Hill Harper’s book information on our e-mail, and she was quite surprised when she discovered I had done so. Actually, throughout the day last Thursday, she kept monitoring the Best Sellers list on Amazon and to our surprise the book rose tremendously. The numbers are as follows: On Wednesday afternoon (March 29th , the day before our e-mail) the book best seller # was 375. On Thursday, March 30th soon after the blast was sent out my sister indicated the book had risen to # 75, at approximately 4:45 pm she indicated it had risen to # 22, and by the end of the day it closed out at # 16. What a big jump after our blast went out. Of course, Mr. Harper is thrilled and very appreciative for your support. To the many who wrote us expressing your interesting in having Mr. Harper come to your town for a book signing, I have informed his people, and I’m sure they will be arranging something soon. Thanks again for your support and love!!!!

Congratulations Honorable Portia Simpson-Miller, Jamaica Prime Minister (newly elected)
Congratulations to the Honorable Portia Simpson-Miller who recently was nominated by the people of Jamaica as their new Prime Minister. The first woman to ever triumph in becoming the Prime Minister of Jamaica. I actually received some mixed reviews from folks regarding Ms. Simpson-Miller, but I personally wish her all the best and I hope she leads Jamaica on a successful path. Mrs. Miller was not new to the political game, she began her political career in the early 1970s, and eventually become Jamaica's most popular politician, and the first woman in the country's history to contend for the post of Prime Minister twice (2). Mrs. Simpson-Miller has been known as the heart and soul of the People's National Party (PNP) because of her strong, invincible and outspoken personality. In 1992 she ran for the Prime Minister’s post but did not win, however this did not stop her from achieving her goals and she remained the nation’s most popular politician. She is known as being defiant especially after last year when she split with her parliamentary colleagues and sustained from voting on an opposition motion on the nation’s depleted fire services.
