Montego Bay's stylish crowd was out for the soft opening of that city's fabulous convention centre last week.

  • In search of a buyer

1 Another business deal has faltered and the principals are searching high and low for a deliverer. The owners have now learnt the hard way that the franchise-business is no walk in the park. The reality is, that In keeping with tough times, people are rolling up their sleeves and doing the cycles.

The fingerprint experts

2 Recently we have heard a number of people criticising police investigators for their work in the area of fingerprinting crime scenes. In several cases the police have said no fingerprints were found when the homeowners swear that the police have deliberately ignored these prints for reasons known only to them. But, some of the questions being asked are: Do the police really have the requisite expertise? Are they in collusion with the criminal?

Well-guarded and on the prowl

3. As more and more executives feel unsafe, many are moving to hire security guards round the clock. Of course, the politicians are the ones who set the trend, surrounded as they are by armed guards paid for by the people. In the case of this business executive, the fact that he is guarded has not curtailed his extra-marital dalliances. No wonder he offers excellent tips to his minder.

What's hidden in the dark ...

4. The businessman has kept the love child a secret from his official family - the irony is that the outsider is doing extremely well - far better than those in the inner-circle. Now daddy is really warming to his role - but he is still maintaining his secret.

Forget Christmas and New Year, it's Bacchanal time again!
