A while ago, I have been told that I could start a brand channel on YouTube. Finally got around to it and I am slowly moving my videos into this channel:
Llime Works Press
It is going to take a while, but hopefully, people on FB , Twitter, G+ and other social sites will take notice. It would be great if I could get 100 subscribers, so that I can get a shorter, custom URL. But, whatever may come and whatever may be, I will still be me. Hope someone out there likes my music and/or my stories. Please subscribe – it would be a sign that I should keep writing.
For desert I baked an Apple Galette. First time – came out great but stuck to the foil a bit. I need to change stuff for the next one.
Trinidad meets Italy. and the Middle East. Clockwise from front left: green apple/cucumber chow, tomato/mozzarella/basil salad, mango chow and hummus.
This was more than one year ago. I posted it on my own private blog that is view-able by invitation only. I did like this guy, so I thought perhaps I should re-post this item on one of my open blogs – so here it is.
On January 17, 2016 Clarence “Blowfly” Reid passed away. Not sure what’s up this January. We’ve lost a lot of great artists and some that may not have been quite that great, but were more famous. Blowfly was my kind of rapper – most of his stuff was loaded with explicit sexual imagery.

Before you even attempt to tell a story, no matter if true or just an invention of your overclocked mind, there are many decisions that you need to make. The main one has to do with time – just exactly when do you start your story? You have to pick a spot on the timeline of your characters that explains them to your readers – an event that somehow influences them and shows some of the things that motivate them, making them behave the way they do later on. You cannot go back too far, there is only so much time that your readers will be willing to dedicate to your scribbles. Besides, you have to make the (logical to some) assumption that we all share a fairly common background and there is no need to go and re-invent the theory of evolution or, depending on your story, re-explain creationism. So, though it will meander back and forth in time, the story actually starts at the time Doreen turned 4 years old. Why? I have no idea – it just unfolded that way in my head and might have more to do with the way my brain works than with any story telling craftsmanship.
