It's official. The 2011 bird-shooting season kicked off across the island last weekend and families took to the bush like fish to water. As usual, our cameras will follow the exciting activities till the season ends in September. Send your special bird-bush snapshots to and we will publish them in Something Extra for you.

Tuesday talk

Nuh linger here

Okay, so management demands a security check for patrons using the club. In these days of terrorism, that is kind of expected. What is not expected is that a female would be patting down a man. And, sure enough, it happened one night that the female objected vociferously to the fact that her man was being touched in all the sensitive areas. The ugly scene only cooled down when the police came.

The art of tipping

Supermarkets say no tipping is necessary. So why were these two young boys fighting over a customer? Reason being the shopper is known as a heavy tipper. Now, if the management wants to avoid a repeat brawl, perhaps they should ask that if the customer insists on giving a tip that it be handed over and all tips can then be shared between the check-out guys keeping everyone happy.

Crooner goes MIA

Well, they checked everywhere but one place - jail. The yardies were hyped for the performance of their super star and couldn't understand why he was not on stage. Was he sick? No. No. Did he have a quarrel with the promoters? No. No. Seems he was in the slammer for a misdemeanour which he thought was long expunged from the books. Others must now take heed.

Eking out a living

So what if turkey neck and chicken back is what the socialite can afford these days? Her loud announcement that she needed this for her dog was totally uncalled for. She would have wanted the floor to open and swallow her if she saw the mockery on the faces of those who were nearby or heard the comments. Who is she fooling? If the lady is to be believed the dog died nearly three years ago.
