I'm not quite sure where to begin with this, so I'm going to start at the end (temporal frame of reference this post).

This morning (starting at 0000 hours) something very interesting happened here in Bimshire...

We became a republic!

We now have a President instead of the Queen of England as our Head of State (the Prime Minister remains the Leader of the Government of Barbados).

Prince Charles was here to congratulate us on this decision.

And, it's a serious decision! There is a whole lotta legal stuff that needs to be shaken out of this.

But it looks like both Religion and Sexual orientation are going to be a lot more "normalized" with rational thinking as part of the exercise. Cool!

My connection to Barbados is a bit complicated. My father was born here just over ninety-five years ago. I moved to Barbados just over twenty years ago. As a Canadian, there's something to be said for being warm all the time...

BTW... I feel safer here in Barbados, for my family, my friends, and myself, than I do just about anywhere else I've ever lived or visited.

Please come visit if you find yourself able to do so.
