My sister Vernell just started her blog, Ole' Talk. In West Indian lingo Ole-Talk (Old-Talk) means Idle chatter; gossip; social chit-chat, mere rhetoric. (source: Dictionary of Caribbean English Usage by Richard & Jeannette Allsopp).
My friend Sheryl-Ann also recently launched her blog Island Girl, Island Life, Big City Life, School Life . Technically she's not family, but we share the exact same birthdate and refer to each other as our twin.
Vernell and Sherl-Ann met when they both attended St. Mary's University in Halifax, Nova Scotia and were roommates for two years. So really, she is practically family.
Drop by and give them a shout out!
