Updated 5:58 PM ET, Thu July 11, 2019

(CNN)American Airlines has apologized to a woman who says she was humiliated after being told she couldn’t fly unless she covered up her romper.

Latisha “Tisha” Rowe said she and her son were boarding a flight from Kingston, Jamaica, to Miami on June 30 when flight attendants asked them to step off the plane to talk, she told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin on Thursday.
Rowe said a female flight attendant asked her several times whether she had a jacket, and when she asked why, the woman told her that “you are not getting on the plane dressed like that.”
Rowe was wearing a strapless romper, so her legs, shoulders and arms were visible, but she said that nothing inappropriate was exposed.           Continue reading

A NOT SO HAPPY VALENTINE – By Waltie Ainsworth

BYRON LEE AND DRAGONAIRS – SOFT LEE

A NOT SO HAPPY VALENTINE

Valentine in 1970 was not such a happy one for a big man named Cuomo who was an employee of the Guyana Electricity Corporation and based in the Peoples Republic of Victoria on the East Coast of Demerara in Guyana.

Truth be told Cuomo was a condemned married man with a few extra dollars in his pocket and loud gold in his mouth, around his neck and a slave band on his left hand and lots and lots of sweet talk. Since mid- afternoon, he was drinking upstairs at the Penthouse Restaurant and Bar. Soon, he was introduced to a young lady who worked with the local government office in Naarstigheid.

Cuomo thought she was from Suriname not knowing that Naarstigheid was the village district that covered Hopetown, West Coast Berbice.  And so this burly, fit and trim big man in an attempt to impress the lady, decorated her table with Old Kaie whiskey and all the food and chicken-in-the-rough she can eat.     Continue reading

Vintage Scotch whiskies found to be fake

The tests were conducted at the East Kilbride-based Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre (SUERC).   It used advanced radiocarbon dating techniques to reach its conclusions.
