Indeed, our feet have been talking, and they have certainly been listening — AW Fashion is delighted to share news of the opening of the first Jamaica Sandals retail store at 110 Old Hope Road.

My Kingston — Hugh Graham

Hugh Graham
Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director,
Paramount JamaicaKarl McLarty

What are your earliest memories of Kingston? At 10 years old, when I would ride my mother’s lady’s-wheel bicycle to pick up fresh cow’s milk every morning from Miss Soukou, from Whitehall Avenue to Cassava Piece. What’s the most memorable meal that you have enjoyed in Kingston? I would say pan chicken from Red Hills Road. What would you do if you were mayor of Kingston for a day? So many things! But what is most significant to me would be to invite all the young wind ... Read More

Gardening — August 7

With Betty Ashley | Sunday, August 07, 2016    

Oncidium orchid

Dear Orchid Doc: The searing heat of the sun has shifted on my orchids and has caused some amount of leaf damage. Should I remove them? Janet Hopkin Dear Janet: Sunburned leaves can look rather unsightly, but may still have enough undamaged areas that can generate enough energy for the plant. I would cut off the unsightly areas with a sterile pruner. Remember to use a fungicide and cut at an angle. Dear Orchid Doc: I have noticed that my Phalaenopsis has yellow spots with a darker brown ... Read More

It’s all in the bag this Independence — the patty bag, that is — piping hot, delicious fillings packed in the flakiest of crusts. Thursday Life discovered last Friday afternoon just what happens when two of our country’s iconic products come together — one served searing hot in a brown paper bag; and the other, ice-cold in a brown glass bottle, and described as a beautiful amber lager with low butterscotch flavour, full-bodied with a smooth post-palate sensation. ...
