Men do it differently

The dead of winter seems to be over, and with it the pits of small island politics. I don’t know which one of these I’m happiest about but, the combination of the two is making me break into dances of joy wherever I am. Of course the political...

It’s a girl!

Just in case you hadn’t noticed, we’re now well into 2013, the electoral mayhem is finally over and, lo and behold, the sun is still rising from the East. But our ceasefire was short lived because as soon as the ballot sheets were put aside, we...

Before I shut up

Election fever makes people say and do all sorts of things. Yesterday, an old friend of mine publically ‘accused’ me of being selfish. She told me that my support for Alternattiva Demokratika is based solely on my wanting gay marriage to be...

Whenever a child is adopted from all over the civilised world, the best interest of the child is always given utmost importance.  When potential adoptive parents apply to adopt a child they are put under huge scrutiny. Their personal backgrounds,...
