Those of you who have visited my blog over the years, would know that I am no huge fan of the Christmas Season.

Get With The Christmas Program Or Else

There is always a high level of insanity around when Christmas is approaching. People try their utmost best to get their homes in pristine condition before December 25th; this is done by people doing the following:

  • Painting the interior of their homes.
  • Painting the exterior of their homes.
  • Trimming the branches of trees.
  • Mowing the lawn.
  • Repairing broken gates, fences, etcetera.

People's busy movements are akin to someone dropping insecticide on an ants nest and watching those ants move crazily in all directions.

The Issue Of Religion

Religion has become a problem around the world. A large percentage of people are biased towards those who are not members of the same religious faith as they (One would think that people should embrace others despite their differences; but that does not always happen).

The sight of this beautiful hibiscus flower was too good to ignore.
Recently, I took a photograph of a beautiful hibiscus flower; it was taken in Bon Air Gardens, Arouca.

I Want A Private Island To Escape Christmas

There were those occasions when I wished that I had my own private island (It must have a fast and very reliable internet feed; which can be made possible through the usage of 4G LTE technology).

The Christmas Madness Is On

Christmas Gift

I can barely believe my eyes and ears; the media created this Christmas frenzy back in September; which was done by advertising products that they think that our friends, family, relatives and colleagues would like to have as gifts.

The day started with some lightening, thunder and rain (I wrongfully thought that it was going to be a very rainy day).

No Appetite On Hot Days

Unfortunately, when the temperature is high, the last thing that I want to do is eat; I would prefer to drink a gallon of cold juice.

More Great Weather In Trinidad And Tobago

Some of you already know that we have two seasons in Trinidad and Tobago; the rainy and the dry (Both have degrees of sun and rain).

Surviving Hot Days In Trinidad And Tobago

There are times when I feel as though that the heat is going to render me unconscious; for the past week, the temperatures were around 33 degrees Celsius (91.4 degrees Fahrenheit); when the place is that hot, I find it quite unbearable (And, unbearable conditions are not the favourable type for blogging).

I survived it all by drinking lots of fluids; hot soup on mornings and lots of ice tea throughout the day.

When you live in a tropical region, heat tends to be your worst enemy.

On a positive note, I intend to blog when the place is cooler (I believe that if you were in my shoes, you would have done the same).

Also, when one is blogging, they need to be coherent (And, in order for me to be coherent, I have to remain hydrated and cool).

Damn! Did the Devil relocate Hell to The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago? With the high level of heat, it surely feels that way!

Unfortunately, the intermittent rain throughout the country is not helping in the area of cooling down the heat.

I think that those who live in air conditioned homes are the lucky ones; since the majority of the citizenry do not have air conditioning units in their homes; they rely on their electric fans to keep them cool and these days, it feels as though those electric fans are blowing hot breeze on their owners.

Are you good at handling the heat?

And, what would you have done if you were in my shoes?

I am proud to be friends with someone as talented as, DJ Nigel "Sicky" Kinsale; whenever I am around while he is doing his live mix sessions, he likes to explain his musical concepts; things like what he wants his listeners to feel and the mental picture that he wants his listeners to paint in their minds, while a particular track is being played by him (And, he even tries to teach me how to do it too).

Anyway, as promised, I am back with another EDM session from my good friend, DJ Nigel "Sicky" Kinsale; which is, one of those mix sessions that would cause you to raise the volume of the speakers at a very high level on your computer, tablet or smartphone and dance.

DJ Nigel "Sicky" Kinsale's mix sessions are way too good to ignore.

So ladies and gentlemen, I hereby present to you, another marvellous EDM mix session from my good friend, DJ Nigel "Sicky" Kinsale. Enjoy!

Those who are deep into the EDM scene in The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago would be familiar With DJ Nigel "Sicky" Kinsale's unique style of mixing (He actually left one of our top promoters and DJs — Tony "Hydro" amazed; which resulted in him doing repeated guest appearances on the radio).

DJ Nigel "Sicky" Kinsale is, one of our talented sons of the soil, who never disappoints. When he is not playing in the clubs, he has his hands filled with entertaining select crowds at beach parties.

Today, I am very proud to share with you, another one of his EDM mix sessions.

Also, you can expect to hear more blazing hot dance music from DJ Nigel "Sicky" Kinsale in the very near future on The Chronicles Of Renard.

I Hate It When The Electricity Goes While I Am Blogging

(Photo credit: Pixabay)
One of the most annoying things is: when the electricity goes when I am in the middle of composing an article for my blog.

In The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, power outages occur without warning (So, one never really knows when they are going to be deprived of electricity).

The most that I can do is, to wait until the electricity returns and resume blogging (Or, if the electricity returns at a very late hour, I might go to bed and put off writing my article for the following day).

The God's truth is: it is way easier to write an article when you are inspired and when the electricity goes in an untimely manner, it ruins one's writing process.


Because, when the electricity returns, there is a chance of the inspiration being long gone (And, one would have to wait until that inspiration returns; for without it, no writing gets done).

One of these days, a blogger might get the idea of suing the electricity company for taking the electricity while they are in the middle of blogging.

But, the lawyer for the defendant, might bring up the argument that a person can still write their articles even though there is no electricity; it would have to be done the old-fashioned way; which is, composing one's article under candlelight, or via the light of a kerosene lamp.

The prosecuting lawyer, will have to highlight the fact, that the blogger would need to be financially compensated; since they were unable to publish anything; due to not having a supply of electricity.

And, if the lawyer for the defendant is brilliant (and, in most cases they are), he or she can point out the fact, that the article could have been completed on a smartphone; therefore, not hindering the blogger from publishing their post.

The prosecuting lawyer, would have to counteract the statement that was made by the lawyer for the defendant, by pointing out to the judge and the jury, that his client does not have an internet package on their smartphone and is reliant on their internet at home to get their quota of blogging done.

As a matter of fact, both lawyers can argue their cases well; it would be one that is going to stress out the judge and the jurors.

In reality, a case such as that one, would never reach in court.

And, why is it that a case like that one would never reach in court?

Mainly because, people would rather cut their loses, they would resume the writing of their article when the electricity returned and hope that it does not go anytime soon.

Also, the average blogger would not fathom the idea of taking their electricity provider to court.

On a few occasions, I had to wait until the electricity returned in order to publish my article (And, most of the times, the waiting-period was a very long one).

Thank God/Goddess, that my blog is a personal one and not a blog that is business-oriented; because I would have been highly annoyed (The sole purpose of a business-type blog is, to make money online and when the electricity goes, it can hinder the blogger from making a financial profit; especially when it is time for them to update their blog).

Have you ever experienced any blogging setbacks due to the result of power outages?

If your answer is, "Yes," please feel free to let me know how you handled yourself during the power outage situation via the comments section of my blog.
