Apart, from the obvious things, COVID19 has pretty much redefined life as we know it.

The conversation surrounding the fact that Jamaica needs a proper universal identification system has been long and rife with politics. All of that aside, I fully support this position. I’m even more convinced it should be mandatory and sooner rather than later. As far as I am concerned, I have given my biometric data to Google, Apple and the United States already.

Having seen my wife’s blog post about her first time traveling alone with our frisky three year old daughter, I’ve decided I will share my side of the story. The husband, left soaked in tears, I mean rain :-), in the airport.

More tab a year ago, I tried to get my podcast But First, Coffee going. Failing miserably, I finally conceded that there was no way I could diligently find the time to record a podcast with the noise bug that is my full time charge. But writing? You bet your cutet little bitton nose I can!

So, transforming the concept from podcast to newsletter, bfc morning e-newsletter delivered via email Monday to Friday, will feature five to seven articles on lifestyle, food, creatives, business tips and events around the cities of Kingston, Jamaica and Fort Lauderdale/South Florida, US.
