Crazy Quote of the week - Bounty Killer
"They have something out for artistes in
St. Thomas...I are the target from a long time ago,
Anything that you do in this county to uplift people
they are going to be against you. If you are the
voice of the voiceless, they are going to target
you. But I are a bullet and you can't target a bullet."
|Pieces of the
Past : The Sport of kings
of the world's oldest sports and one of Jamaica's
most popular, horse racing dates back to 4500
BC when nomadic tribesmen from Europe to Asia
first began to race domesticated horses. The Romans
loved chariot racing as did the Egyptians who
also enjoyed mounted horse racing, both of which
by 638 BC were included in the Greek Olympics.For
