So many famous people on such a small island

Nevis is the home of Jessie James, James Brown, Leroy Brown, Charlie Brown, Marlon Brando, and Elizabeth Taylor. St. Kitts has a Bernier by the first name Jocelyn! Cousin? Could be. Tonight we went out to chinese food at the Tea House. We have been informed that The Tea House delivers up to our area! That is dangerous information for us to have. The food there is very good, cooked like the crazy Li Yuen style and it will be a good thing for us when we are desperate. Tonight we went out with the LaPray's. While we were there...before we got our food...the electricity went out. We were worried that they wouldn't be able to finish cooking but they finished by candle or flashlight and delivered our appetizers just as the lights came back on. It was only out for 15 minutes or so. That's nothing compared to how long it usually goes out for. Julian had horseback riding today and is getting very good at trotting. Or cantering or whatever they call it. Erika gave him some gloves to wear because he was complaining about his hands hurting and not being able to grip the reins tight enough and it seemed to help a lot. There were a couple of new kids in the class but we won't be seeing them in class because we have been moved to Wednesdays. So it will be Julian, Ian and Yiyi (pronounced E) she's our chinese friend who is the spouse of one of the students here. She is a fun girl. She has taught Julian a little bit of chinese writing but he hasn't remembered it. It is very interesting the way it works.

  • OK, I have learned that a blog is potentially dangerous...after the U2 concert I have two "new friends". Both of whom have blogspot blogs and "found" my entry after the concert. One of them admitted to seeing me in the bar where I was given the free drink for my b-day.....the scary thing is...they live in Milwaukee!!!
