Greetings on-line family!  

I hope you enjoyed the Memorial Day weekend as much as we did.  Of course, we spent a lot of time hanging out at home doing the traditional BBQ "thing", which was fantastic!  However, we eventually made it out the house and spent some time with friends, and I must say there is nothing better than spending time talking, laughing, drinking and just having some good ole fun with wonderful friends.  You know, compared to the 2007 Memorial Weekend, we were real good about refraining from drinking this year.  You certainly couldn't call us a "lush" this year, we just had a few while socializing!!!   All in all though, the entire weekend was absolutely superb, including the weather!!!  

If you are reading Gwen and John, please know that you are great friends.  Thanks for the good food, drinks and great conversation!!!!

 

SteelPan1[1].jpg (9316 bytes)I understand Pan Masters Steel Orchestra's 10th Steel Band Jamboree was excellent.  Even though we had plans on attending, we were too "tied up" to get away.  All the reports from friends were great, and we are indeed happy to hear about their success.  Today we received a fascinating article about this event entitled "Outstanding!!! Pan Masters' 10th Annual Steelband Jamboree", written by "When Steel Talks Everyone Listens - Nothing But The Business of Steelpan Music 24-7".  They wrote: "Maryland is still smoking and fans are still singing and dancing from this past weekend Pan Masters Jamboree.  Seven steel orchestras represented the Maryland area and neighboring states performed"  To read more of this article, as well as to view the photos and the video clip CLICK HERE to log on to When Steel Talks SiteLook out for Pan Masters Calypso Monarch Semi-Finals which will be taking place next weekend.  For details about entering this contest log on to Pan Masters site www.panmasters.com or call 301-864-2610 right away.  Below you will find their flyer under our "Featured Events" as well.

 

  On a sad note, we were informed that there was a great loss of lives over the weekend in Tampa, Florida.  Some wonderful DJs "Poison Dart" (whom we had a nice friendship with) were senselessly gunned down at their weekly event in Tampa.  Our hearts dropped when we got the bad news that 2 members of this Popular DJ team were killed, as well as a young man who was an associate of the group.  

The two DJs  Antone Geargo-Neely (29) known as "Tony Montana" and Michael F. Rattigan (35) known as "Chris Rock" both died immediately.  However, the 3rd young man (Kevin J. Webster - 29) tried to make it as he was taken to Lakeland Regional Medical center, unfortunately he didn't - he died later.

Apparently, these crazy killings took place at their weekly event venue "The Thunderbird Bar" in Auburndale.  The assailant (assassin in my opinion) who investigators have now identified is 19 year old Davion Parson of Lakeland, Florida is still at large, but a warrant has been issued for his arrest.  Actually, investigators stated he has fled to Jamaica.

One of the investigators Sheriff Grady Judd stated  "We believe that this brutal crime was committed in retaliation of an incident that occurred May 10, 2008."

If you have any information on the suspect's whereabouts contact the Sheriff's Office. The phone number is 863-533-0344. Information also can be provided anonymously through Heartland Crime Stoppers at 800-226-8477.

    Our deepest and heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family, children, friends and fans of the "Poison Dart" Sound - Mr. Geargo-Neely and Mr. Rattigan; and to the family and friends of Mr. Webster!  This loss is overwhelming for many, who are relentlessly asking why...why...why????  Why must we continue senselessly killing each other!!!

 

 

 

This Sunday, June 1st Caribbean-American Heritage Month Begins!  Actually, June 5th marks the 2nd Anniversary of this Special month.

National Caribbean-American Heritage Month  -  In the 109th Congress both the House and Senate unanimously approved H.Con.Res.71, a measured introduced by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Oakland), on June 5, 2006 President George W. Bush issued a proclamation designating June as Caribbean - American Heritage Month.  This proclamation acknowledges the growing political and economic influence of the Caribbean Diaspora and its importance and contribution to the development of the cultural diversity of the United States.

 

President Bush issues a Proclamation declaring June as National Caribbean-American Heritage Month

During June, we recognize Caribbean Americans and celebrate the many ways they contribute to our Nation.

Generations of Caribbean Americans have helped shape the spirit and character of our country. These individuals are justly proud of their Caribbean roots, and they enrich the American experience by sharing their traditions, history, and values. Caribbean Americans of all walks of life have added to the vitality, success, and prosperity of our country. Their hard work and determination inspire all who dream of a better life for themselves and their families.

Our Nation is deeply grateful to the Caribbean Americans who defend our liberty as members of our Armed Forces. The service and sacrifice of these courageous men and women are helping lay the foundation of peace for generations to come.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2007 as Caribbean-American Heritage Month. I encourage all Americans to learn more about the history and culture of Caribbean Americans and their contributions to our Nation.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of June, in the year of our Lord two thousand seven, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-first.

GEORGE W. BUSH

The countdown to knowing who the Democratic Presidential Nominee will be, has begun!  It's just a few days left before the end.  This weekend on Saturday May 31st the Democratic National Committee holds its meeting regarding the problem with seating the Michigan and Florida Delegates.  On Sunday, June 1st Puerto Rico holds its primary election,  and on Tuesday, June 3rd Montana and South Dakota will hold their primary elections.

As this race comes to an end the craziness continues.  Last weekend Senator Hilary Clinton made some very sensitive comments that upset many folks across the United States.  To learn more about Senator Clinton's statements please click on the picture below to view MSNBC's reporter Keith Olbermann's remarks on this issue (he calls it "Clinton, you invoked a nightmare") on his "In a Countdown Special comments"  

"Clinton, you invoked a nightmare" by Keith Olbermann - Courtesy of MSNBC (May 23rd - 10 minutes & 44 seconds)


As this exciting race "comes down to the wire" Senator Barack Obama is approximately 40 delegates away from reaching the total of 2025 delegates needed to secure the nomination.  Clearly he received 20 super delegate endorsements over this past week, since last week he was 60 delegates away.  Senator Clinton on the other hand needs over 200 delegates before reaching the total.  She currently has 1782 delegates (1499 pledged and 283 super) and Senator Obama has a total of 1981 delegates (1661 pledged and 320 super).  Right now according to all the reports on every network, there seems to be No way Senator Clinton will win this democratic nomination race.  However, we will know after Tuesday, June 3rd who the nominee will be!!!  

Of course, as we have done from the beginning - we ask you to go out and vote...vote...vote.  Vote for Senator Barack Obama - the candidate that represents honesty, and CHANGE.  We wish the Senator and his camp all the best with these last few primaries and most importantly on becoming the Democratic Nominee.

I leave you with the same statement I have left you with every week since the democratic primary elections begun.  "Please judge Senator Obama on his words, his actions and the content of his character.   Kindly continue standing up and not accepting the same old tactics, rhetoric and old politics.  Most importantly, let's continue building this movement and voting for Senator Barack Obama".  With your support and votes Senator Obama will succeed and will be the nominee.  We are certain he is "the one"..."the one" who absolutely has the ability and wisdom to move us forward;  "the one" who has the answers to all of the many issues plaguing America currently, and we know he is "the one" who can take us forward toward that change we are seeking in a positive manner.  I hope you are looking forward to the overall change as I am, so lets continue making history together!!!!"


Well, over this past week I've been hearing more rhetoric from the Republicans.  Senator McCain has constantly been making statements about Senator Obama wanting the US to surrender to Iraq.  Let's back up here for a minute!  Why is he saying "Surrender to Iraq"?  Please correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't President Bush declare the US had won the war against Iraq on May 1st, 2003, with his "Mission Accomplished" Speech?  Therefore, no such words as "Surrender" should be coming out of McCain's mouth.  According to President Bush the war against Iraq was won and has been over since 2003, so no one should be surrendering.  You know, I honestly believe these folks have completely lost their minds.  

  On May 1, 2003, President Bush landed on the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln in a Lockheed S-3 Viking dubbed Navy One, as the carrier returned from combat operations in the Persian Golf.   He posed for photographs with pilots and members of the ship's crew while wearing a fight suit.  A few hours later, he gave a speech announcing the end of major combat operations in the Iraq War. Clearly visible in the background was a banner stating "Mission Accomplished.".  Click the links below to view the actual video of the President's speech in 2003.  Part I and Part II posted by Sarahope 16 and powered by YouTube.

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=faMTYPYfDSE (10:04 minutes)

Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0z9RIjGWpJk (9:39 minutes) 

The White house transcript of the President's Speech: http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2003/05/20030501-15.html

Let's keep in mind the madness McCain have been saying: (1) some months ago on the campaign trail he stated the war will go on for approximately another 100 years; (2) Two weeks ago he talked about bringing the troops home in the year 2013; and (3) last week he repeatedly called Senator Obama naive because Obama feels it's important to speak with both America's friends and enemies as several past Presidents have done.  This week he talks about, and is using words as "Surrender" when the war has been over since 2003 (according to President Bush).  Undoubtedly, this old Republican administration must go, and we must make sure they are gone in November!!!
