Paradise. 

Paradise controlled by a bunch of self serving, corrupt and incompetent politicians. 

Also known as JamRock. Home to the legendary Bob Marley and the Right Honorable Usain Bolt.

Aah Teddi- Wonderful country,  it's on my travel list regardless of whether l win a substantial amount or not.You are right,  Usain Bolt is a rare breed of an athlete, especially for his height. I recall reading where so called experts were saying no one that tall should be running that fast.My Mother was an athlete in her youth and l remember her calling me to watch a late 30 something female athlete from Jamaica win medals in Sydney- The one & only Merlene Ottey.She was fast.

    My husband said there are a couple broads that need to be shipped out of the country, I think he means my sisters and I.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      Coach Mills is a genius. He rewrote a how a 50 year old standard of how a 200m race should be run, and the rest, as they say, is history. 

      I remember the numerous American coaches, athletes, biophysics experts saying there go those crazy Jamaicans again. First they got a bobsled team, and now they're putting a 6'5" man with scoliosis in a 100m race. They had a good laugh, saying that by the time Bolt got all his bulk out of the blocks the race would be over. 

      After 7 world records, 5 Olympic records and about a couple dozen meeting records, many have been training in Jamaica and/or copying Coach Mills' techniques. 

      Not really the most logical thing to tell people who thrive on competition that they can't do something or that they're idiots. Because we will do something idiotic just to prove that it can be done. The fact that there's a bobsled team should have clued them in on that. ROFL

      As for Merlene, she was a treasure. 9 Olympic and 14 Championship medals. 

      Hopefully I'll win the lottery and be able to attend the 2016 Rio Olympics. Banana

      "wi likkle but wi tallawah" = we may be small but we are strong

      I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

      The odds are about the same.

        I think I would travel for the first year after my check cleared and just see every part of the world I wanted to see.

        Probably 1-2 weeks each and after that take a look at which place I liked most and then stay there for a longer time. Of the top of my head I could see Hawai'i and New Zealand being places like that.
