Let there be light

That's the cry from disgruntled Vincentians over the ongoing power cuts.The last couple days have seen power outages lasting up to ten hours at a stretch.Initially,persons thought the problem was specific to their area only to realise that it was island wide.As it stands there are different down times for specific areas with some seemingly on the night shift.

So far I have been on the receiving end of both shifts and not liking it one bit.The most annoying thing though is having to speak to a machine when making reports of the power cuts.No,you do not wish to have your problem dealt with electronically.You'd much prefer getting an explanation from a person rather than the standard response of the recording.

Then,finally on the 7 o clock news I hear a release from VINLEC saying that the planned outages will continue for 10 more days.10 whole more days because there is some problem with a generator which they are working feverishly to correct.Sure,they are!

I am wondering if during routine maintenances they never picked up the problem before it got to be this bad.I guess I'll never know but meantime we all are suffering the inconveniences and I doubt very much there will be any difference in the bills this end of month.Meantime,I hope my electricity loss remains on the day shift since a girl just has to get her fix of television.

On another note break out the champagne and blow the horns.There is a girl named Abeni who's one year older and hopefully wiser today.She's accepting all gifts-virtual or otherwise so don't be shy now.

PS.I metyamfootyesterday so one by one am meeting all the bloggers.

Happy Birthday 2 U! Happy Birthday 2 U! Happy Birthday, Dear, Kami! Happy Birthday 2 U! So, U got an early Bday gift from Yammie--very cool. (My gift 2 U: Here's a verse, sung to de tune of 'Dutty Wine': Kami, treat yu-self & wine & dine! Enjoy yourself, my girl yu look fine! Noh worry 'bout de power-cut a day-time! etc.:) All de best!

And I know what you meanabout talking to a machine. I called Vinlec myself the night the local station announced there would be no evening news. Was wondering if there was going to b e apower cut, but couldnt find out the answer.

Fortunately it didn't go off where i was in Kingstown. Lovely town that. Better the second time around. Tks for stopping by.
Wow, I missed your birthday! Is because I been busy at werk and partyin' in de nite but anyway, happy happy belated birthday, Kami!

Abeni, Abeni, Abeni, this is a bit late but Happy Happy Birthday to you, "the Girl Prayed For". This my thought for you for your next year of life:
