At this moment I'm sitting in a freshman orientation programme for my youngest child as he transitions from middle school and prepares to enter high school this Fall.

He's the musician in the family and the piano is his friend. I see the light at the end of the tunnel as his older brother will graduate highschool in 2017 and he will follow in 2019.

Duke Ellington School of the Arts here we come. Watch out. A star from the Olutosin clan has entered your doors.

It's Throw Back Thor's-day so I thought I'd take it back to 1987.

"Back in the days when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore but some days I sit and wish I was a kid again". - Ahmad

What's good people?

It is African Liberation Day as well as the UN's Africa Day. Both observances celebrating and recognising continental Africa's liberation from her colonial invaders.

I raise a cup of the good stuff in honour of all those who fought and words for freedom and liberation from the tyranny of the British, French, Belgian, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish colonisers.

Let us remember the history of the past as to not repeat it in the future.

It's Monday, it's Memorial Day in the US and I'm up baking.

Today is a day of remembrance for all the brave men and women who have given their lives in service to the American people.

So as you stoke the fires of your grills today remember what this day is really about. Make it a GREAT one.

The True Origins of Memorial Day

David Blight, a history professor at Yale University, says “Decoration Day began May 1, 1865 when recently freed slaves in Charleston, SC, celebrated the Civil War victory and honored the dead by placing flowers on the graves of unknown soldiers.

While it is disputed by some that this was the origin of Memorial Day, many acknowledge that day as the beginning of today's traditions and national holiday."
