Favorite Sprinter

One of my favorite sprinters is Usain Bolt of Jamaica. During the 2008 Olympic Games he proved himself as one of the best athletes of all time and is now the worlds fastest man. There is no doubt that many fans would love to be struck by this Bolt of lightning!

Shrinking Beaches

So you like the beach? Here's a call to action.

Associated Press reports that sand along some of the caribbeans beaches is disappearing at alarming rates as theives feed a local construction boom. The sand is favored in creating smooth surfaces for plastering and finishing and is being hauled off by the truckload late at night.

Some towns and areas are now exposed to tidal surges and rough seas. Among the hardest hit is Grenada, where officials are building a US $1.2 million dollar seawall to protect the 131 suare-mile island.

One of the regions largest sand thefts targeted Jamaica, where nearly 100 truckloads were swiped from private property in the northwest, exposing protected mangroves and a limestone forest to wind and waves. Police have refused to comment.

Joseph Gilbert, minister of works and environment in Grenada, says "If we continue to mine the beaches the way we've been doing, we will have no sand to boast about. Just sea and sun."

Iran and I were in the park having lunch while deciding what to do for our second anniversary. Just as we were about to return to the office a gentlemen approached and handed Iran his card. He was a talent scout for a popular gay magazine here in Brazil. He had originally seen us together last year, but was unable to approach us at the time.

After making a telephone call he offered to fly Iran and I to Rio for a week to do a photoshoot. There was no need to think it over because the dates would coincide with our anniversary. How awesome that is! I looked at Iran to see if he had any doubts, since he was to be the "new discovery." He was cool and confident and gave me an I can't wait look. (He seems to have exhibitionist tendencies anyway.)

We had a great time in Rio and everyone at the studio said this is sure to be one of the hottest issues.
