video games

Today, it’s not just youth who find playing video games useful. The pandemic forced many adults to seek escape from harsh realities, like movement restrictions and the ways we entertain ourselves. Games have become an essential distraction since Covid-19 hit us.  Now many of us have become familiar with Super Mario, Candy Crush, and The Sims.


February is only one month removed from those New Year’s resolutions we made. But we
know for some those resolutions are already relics. We also know one of the most common
new year’s resolutions is to lose weight. Most of us want to get into the best shape of our

2022 Goals

Woohoo! 2021 is gone! Your 2022 calendar looks promising and you want to roll out those ambitious new year’s resolutions.

We’ll check back with you next December.

Wow! It’s enough to get you excited.

Tell us you are Jamaican, without saying that. Well, that’s easy! If you know the word ‘bitters’ that’s a tell-tale sign!

The herb holds medicinal properties worthy enough to override the bitter taste that lingers!
