Mr. Peppa Poised For Stardom
His name is Mr. Peppa and he's the talk of the town among young and old alike. The teenagers love him, especially the young ladies, not just because he's cute and sexy, but also because he's got some tough lyrics. When asked how they would describe him, "Him hard, him tuff!" was the resonating response from the young men, as they bounced to the lyrics and beat of his latest tunes.
With Peppa's newest recording, 'Talk', now getting heavy rotation on air, in the dancehalls and the video creating havoc on all the music video channels, the talented 25-year-old star is heading places…and fast. He's got … Check out this revealing interview with Mr. Peppa at http://www.golocaljamaica.com/entertainment/artisiteprofiles/mrpeppa.html

our expert Fleur dis Lis suggests. Check out this
the latest contribution – I've been thinking –
Women will believe anything
Seeing is believing right? You would think (with one great exception 'Christ rising from the dead)! Then why is it that so many women, despite everything they know, everything they're taught, everything they've SEEN, still allow (their) men to tell them anything, AND believe it?
Story: Wife comes home and sees her husband in bed with another woman. Wife gasps, "Gasp!" Calls him all sorts of names and tries to beat up the girl (THAT I'll never understand). He protects the girl he's having Whoopee! With, and wifey runs away to her best friend to bawl. By the time she gets back home, he's all lovey-dovey. Note - not apologetic or even sorry. His thing is that she, his wife, misunderstood and she neva see dat. They weren't in bed - they were making the bed. He wasn't on top of her, purposely - he tripped and fell on her. Their clothes just came apart - can she fix his pants zip and sew back two buttons on his shirt. He could neva do dat an' him love her so much. How could she even think it? "Gasp!"

In their writing , Greek scholars Aristotle and Pliny referred to the use of tolls in Asia and Arabia. According to the Arthasastra, a Sanskirt political treatise , tolls were also said to existed…
