The talk of Easter eggs reminded me of Mork & Mindy. TVLand Fan!

During the week of Easter in Bermuda, you will hear nothing short of these three words – Fishcakes, Hot Cross Buns & Kites. Yes – Hot Cross Buns! The island wide tradition is for households (and restaurants) to make Fishcakes (with codfish) and Hot Cross Buns (typically with raisins and frosting). Every Good Friday in Bermuda, people of all ages will fly their many variations of kites at beaches, parks, backyards and cricket fields throughout the island. My favorite part of this holiday is the abundance of fishcakes. Fishcakes will be delivered to many households over the long weekend and those who didn’t make any will surely stop by someone’s house who is promised to have more than enough. Food plays a huge roll in a lot of the holidays celebrated on the island. Although fishcakes can be found throughout the year, they are typically made the most during Easter.

Yesterday I supported friends at the Par 3 Bacardi World Championship at the Turtle Hill Golf Club Fairmont Southampton Bermuda . In its fourth year, the event was a success with participants from all over the world. On Sunday I followed Camiko Smith as he played, and acted as his caddy when showers down poured for the remainder of the afternoon. He tied for 7th place in the pro division while another friend, Jevon Roberts won the amateur division.
The City Hall Theatre recently changed its name to the Earl Cameron Theatre honoring the 95-year-old Bermudian actor. Although there were negative comments in regards to the name change, I think it was a generous step, showing that Bermuda can display appreciation for those who have had outstanding success on and off the island. There are stories shared throughout families of Bermudians who have achieved great accomplishments but, were never truly recognized for them or, rarely remembered years later. The Earl Cameron Theatre will stand for years to come. After moving to Britain after WWII, Cameron made his film debut in 1950 as one of the first black actors to star in a British movie. He has appeared in many films and TV shows including Thunderball (1965), The Interpreter (2005) with Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn Cameron and the Oscar-winning film The Queen. Cameron has received recognition in the UK by being named a Commander of the British Empire for services to the dramatic arts in 2009. A fan of film and the arts, I applaud Mr. Cameron and I’m glad to see him getting the recognition he deserves.
I want to sign the petition for the themaplekind.com idea of an ‘I Don’t Care’ button to be added to Facebook. I like my friends but I don’t always like their posts.And if they think the same of my timeline, that’s okay. How many times do I have to read the same quote, see the same photo’s of the same kids, how you added new clothes to your closet or see the same positioned head shot with the same face in a different outfit. Who doesn’t like posting photo’s of themselves? But let’s get more creative with it. But, I guess if this is how people choose to depict themselves, it’s fine, I just want the opportunity to express on certain posts- I don’t care.
