Today is Ghana's 52nd year of Independence from Britain, I was going to have a simple blog and perhaps a music video clip to keep in line with the celebrations. However this changed when I switched on the TV to see what was happening on our local TV station here in the UK, OBE TV.
As usual OBE was running a series of commercials/ infomercials and what have you. When they did finally go to air all they did show was promotions for the various raves and bashes that will be held in honour of our independence.
Now some may not see this as such an issue but I found it slightly disturbing, as this would have been the perfect opportunity to educate and enlighten those living abroad just what it means to be the first Sub-saharan African country to have gained independence.
I'm not saying it shouldn't be marked or celebrated but I think there needs to be some sort of balance, but since there is not, there are going to be various raves, parties and bashes in-line with our 52nd birthday, so raise a glass and a toast to Ghana, 'Forward ever, backward never'.

I was flicking around youtube (as you do) and came across a clip of a girl band (3 sisters) that were really popular in the UK around the mid/late 90's
Living TV have this show about old pop stars that they want to bring back so we ( the public) can see what’s up with them. Anyway Cleopatra the girls in question and they were everywhere...Top of the pops, Smash hits, CD:UK etc (all you 90’s kids know what I’m talking about lol)
Here’s a trip down memory lane courtesy of Cleopatra! Enjoy lol

Well we are 16 days into 2009 and already I have been stopped by police twice, and been slapped with 2 tickets....whats up with that?
Ok so one of the tickets was because I was driving with a dodgy brake light...but £40...I still think it's a bit steep, I was going to have it sorted this weekend...
I don't even know why I was stopped the 2nd time...was for nothing because it seemed they just wanted a chat...wasting my time.
I like to think I am a rather up-standing citizen, never been in trouble before, no record nothing, yet in 09 alone I have been stopped twice. Anyway I do get some satisfaction of being in the right when they stop me so I just go ...and it's not even like I'm driving some blacked out vehicle, with lights underneath...its just a humble lil car... anyway what else can I say, maybe I'm more ticked off than I should be...I'll be cool once I've paid the fine...lol plus it's given me something to share! so can't be all bad huh?
