In a recent homily at my local church, I could have sworn that the celebrant said something along the lines of “dangers lurked in the form of the Pharisees, the scribes and the expats”. I may well have misheard but found it amusing nonetheless.

It also gave me an opportunity to write and say how thrilled I was to read recently of Governor Martyn Roper’s incursions into the world of steel pan drumming, in this case at the Sunrise Adult Training Centre. What a wonderfully positive and uplifting story of the kind which could perhaps only happen somewhere like Cayman, as everybody pulls together for the good of the whole society.

Let’s have more stories like this.
