Devika, you know about them, how they can sting and swell people up; there is a popular chutney calypso about such a incident, they are also locally called a 'jep'

Frieda since i've stopped 'playing mas' manny many years now what i do i watch the parade of bands on TV, plus there Cricket going on and i have a book, which my my book club is reading for our next meet, so ther's my Carnival

much love...
