Friday Fill Ins #6

Another Friday is here and it's time for Friday Fill-Ins, hosted by Janet and you should do it! I'm hooked!

1. The last band I saw live was Traffik

2. What I look forward to most on Christmas is the house spotless and decorated with lights and other decorations, oh and a new purchase, (even if it's just a lamp!).

3. My Christmas/holiday shopping is limited to toys this year (if the kids are happy, hubby and me are happy!).

4. Thoughts of Christmas food fill my head.

5. I wish I could wear a bikini and not have to apologise for the tummy!

6. Bagpipes are cool! but kilts are cooler! (huh Lisa?!).

How many of you can say THAT!

As a Trinidadian I along with the rest of the world looked on with keen interest at the US election, and like everyone else saw history made, well it got me comparing the history on my island with the history of America in terms of Presidents, you guys have had 44 presidents thus far. We've had only five. So it thought how can I spin this fact that would make me feel better about my relatively young country? Like this.............. I've lived an amazing life! Do you know that in my lifetime I have lived through all the Prime Ministers (Presidents) that this country has ever had! Yup all five of them!

Now while Obama is the 44th President of the US, my Prime Minister the Honorable Patrick Manning is the 5th leader this country has had! The first leader, was Dr Eric Williams, he took us from being a colony of England to being independent, this happened six years before I was born, however unlike the US we can have the same Prime Minister for................. ever! As long as the electorate is happy with him. In fact Eric Williams may well have been PM for life, had he not died while in office. He served for twenty straight years!

Hereunder are the sum total of everyone who has been the leader of this great nation Trinidad and Tobago: (the dates are when the served as PM)

George Chambers: 30 March 1981 - 18 December 1986 A.N.R. Robinson: 19 December 1986 - 17 December 1991 Patrick Manning: 17 December 1991 - 9 November 1995 Basdeo Panday: 9 November 1995 - 24 December 2001 Patrick Manning: 24 December 2001 - present
And there you have it, the first two Prime Ministers are now dead, the third actually went on to become President ( a mostly ceremonial post), and the last two have been competing and still is competing for the post of Prime Minister during elections.
So that is a quick look at the political landscape of Trinidad, considering how much your elections were in the news, and it's now finished, I figured you would say to yourself, 'I wonder who leads Trinidad and Tobago?' now you know!

An Autumn Award

Isn't this award the cutest? I got it from confessions of a 40-something mama queen her blog is so nice and welcoming! Thank you tardevel!

As with most awards it comes with rules, which of course is part of the fun!

Here is how we play:

1) I need to list 5 things I have always wanted to do.

2) Then contact 3 (or more) bloggin buds, and pass the award along to them.

I must say this is quite easy as I have soooo many aspirations and far fetched dreams! I will try to keep them realistic ok?

  1. I always wanted to bungee jump or fast rope through trees in a jungle of some sort

  2. Host a lovely dinner party for my blogging friends

  3. Have snow at Christmas (so much for realistic!)

  4. Take Gabby to Hollywood, she is such a little actress!

  5. Have a getaway weekend with the hubby, without my kids that I love soooo much, we take them everywhere!

Now to pass this award along to 3 blogging buddies:

  1. My friend Donna over at Donna's Den, Donna is a live one! She blogs from the heart and shoots from the hip! Visit her and you'll be glad you did! She is fiercely loyal and sweet!

  2. My friend Penny over at Always something by Penny who is such a sweetheart and a funny funny person, she leaves the sweetest and funniest comments that just warms the heart to read, she needs to post more though, visit her! you'll love her!

  3. And my friend buffie, everybody loves buffy, mostly because she is nutty and proud of it! If you never visited you are SOOOOOO missing out! Just by the name of her blog you know she is nutty, 'my left foot!', she may have to change the name of her blog soon, lol!! (long story!)
