On-Line Family and Friends: Greetings
to all of you!
week is exactly 6 months and one week into the year, and
it’s unbelievable to me that half of 2010 has gone by
you agree it has flown by?
I must point out though, it may have been an
eternity to many of us due to being unemployed, and/or
enduring several issues that resulted from the
instability of the economy.
Whatever it may be, it’s absolutely important
for all of us to acknowledge the significant progresses
and accomplishments we have achieved in the first half
of the year, and re-set our goals for the ones WE HAVE
must understand the truly important things in life, I
however imagine many of us have a lot to be proud of so
far, and are thrilled because we know the best is yet to
for us at Arious, we are disconnected
from the [so-called] Normal lifestyle, and we
attribute our successes to the fact that the life we
live as business people are interesting and pretty much
are happy, somewhat free, surround ourselves with
positive people, enjoy new interactions and find it
fascinating talking business and just about everything
with interesting people; plus building new and
optimistic relationships and friendships with folks who
are going in the same direction we are [UP].
Most importantly, we don’t focus on societal
pressures to fit in, and we are passionate and inspired
with our business (the concept, the growth, and the
positive results of our work).
after reading these few statements, many of you [among
our online family] would somewhat follow in our
footsteps so that you will forget about the regrets and
disappointments you may have had during these first 6
months of 2010; and begin understanding the truly
important things that exist during your time here on
so that you can realize there is a full 6 more months to
change your futures and to making your lifestyle cool,
creative and exciting (such as ours…LOL).
a wonderful and winning 2nd Half of 2010 ~~
Take control ~~ Believe in yourself ~~ Love ~~ Live ~~

an explosive 4th of July it was, don’t you
free to share with us how you spent yours.
It was pretty cool for us; despite all the "running"
back and forth to the house dealing with the pet, due to
the Pet Hotels in our area being booked and over booked [no
rooms in the inn].
In between the running we spent the weekend at our
cozy, luxurious hotel in Capital Hill and had a fantastic
time [especially being in the midst of the celebrations on
Capital Hill on the 4th of July.]
I do hope you don’t mind me sharing some of the
highlights of the weekend with you.
off, have you noticed our "FlashPoint"
has not been added for some weeks? It's all with good
reason though. You

Thursday-July 1st, Her Excellency Glenda Morean Phillip -
Ambassador of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago
(Washington DC) hosted the launch of our STAR Mr.
Lashley’s literary work. As you must be
aware Mr. Lashley recently published his motivating book
of poetry entitled "Gifts
From The Heart", and we are thrilled that his first
book launch was done in fine style and was very
among the distinguished guest and community leaders at the
Trinidad and Tobago Embassy, I felt a sense of pride due
to the content and joy that was illuminating from Mr.
suspect Mr. Lashley will have very little time for us (the
little people among his circle,) but we know he is off
doing the things he loves dearly – producing the music
for a fascinating play, promoting and selling his book,
acting and even writing more inspirational poems, and most
importantly living his dreams.
We at Arious wish Mr. Lashley all the best in all
he does. You
go boy…we are proud of you!!! LOL...By the way Mr.
Lashley, we are still waiting for our autographed copy of

Saturday – July 3rd, we dropped by a bit late at the
salute for WPFW 89.3 FM Radio Host Mr. Tony Carr, who was
saluted for being in the business for 30 years.
This special event was held at Reggae Icon Gregory
Zanzibar on the waterfront.
What a fantastic turnout it was!!!! Lots and lots
of people we haven’t seen for some time were in
show (from what we made it on time to see) was good.
I personally missed the “Live Wyya” Reggae
band, but Gregory was good as
usual. It certainly was a good night for Mr. Carr, who was beaming.
I think he was fascinated by his fans as much as I
it was funny watching beautiful women gushing over Mr.
Carr. We do wish Mr. Carr another 30+ years in the radio business.
All the best to you Mr. Carr in your
professional career and in your life!!!
let me move ahead a bit, because I want to share with you
information on one of the biggest Caribbean Events that
will be taking place in Maryland in the next week.
The "Jamaica Day Reggae Outdoor Festival”

year of hosting and bringing this event to you.

Jamaica Day Reggae Festival which was initiated four (4)
years ago to support the building of a leadership training
Institute for Kids that live in the Garrisons of Jamaica

are no facilities that cater to that need.
JPC created a non-profit, Jamaica education
for the poor foundation to facilitate that end.
The recent episode in Jamaica is a result of the
non-existence of that kind of training [says JPC].
We encourage you to join JPC at their "Jamaica
Day Reggae Outdoor Festival”, because all proceeds
from the concert will specifically go to establishing the
Center, and for you to enjoy the fantastic and "therapeutic
