BEER: It’s Not Just For Breakfast Anymore

BEER: It’s not just for breakfast anymore.

And remember it is alcohol abuse to spill a drop.

I named my dog ‘Herpes’ because he won’t heel.

He’s the kind of friend who will always be there when he needs you.

Always be sincere, whether you mean it or not.

We lie about everything else why not sincerity?

The shortest distance between two points is always under construction.

I could retire nicely if I could sell my experience for what it cost me.

But there are no buyers. Demand is low for experience.

Never argue with a fool, people might not know the difference.

There is a village some where missing it’s idiot.

But there are no buyers. Demand is low for experience.

I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead

  1. Dear Angy,

    I wrote already something, but it slipped away, so I don’t know if you did receive it.
    But dón’t try to mention / discuss hundreds of different thoughts / impressions /judgements in ONE “letter” / notification, ’cause it makes it chaotic and destroys their individual worth.
    I will not go argue. by mail ; I should really like to be with you, nòt trying to create another Angela, but to meet, to discuss, to enjoy being together.
    Isn’t there a chance for you to come to Curaçao( november is climatological pleasant and cheap(low season).
    Don’t forget your bikini !!
    And don’t forget either your bikini !!
    I’m busy to organize a Linkedin-“congress”/ -symposium / -give-it-a-name”(nov.’15 ?)


    1. Hi Bart, can you ask Linkedin to unrestrict my acct so I may log in and delete my account. LinkedIn locked me out of my account without warning or notice. After 2-3 letters to them I received a rather cold letter ordering me to sign on the dotted line if I want to play.

      I do not want to play with them anymore. I get solicitations and emails from connections to which I cannot respond.

      If you have any pull please let them allow me to erase my account. And my fingerprints.


  2. Dear Angy,

    I tried to start writing you twice, but it “floops” out of my computer, so forgive me repetitions;

    Try nòt to mix-up a cocktail of thoughts in one “letter”, ’cause it let them loose there individual worth and don’t
    “fit each other”, .
    It’s rather late, perhaps I will / can write you tomorrow,
    Don’t forget that I love you still and should really like to meet you “live”.(Next year nov. I’m busy to organize a “Linkedin-congress”, for which it’s perhaps possible to invite Reid Hoffman, founder of Li.-din via an ex-employee of R.H.: “The history of communication”.(Should be a nice moment / reason for your vacation / our meeting !!

    Love and all kind of goodness for you and the yours, as usual !
