    Tell you what, I go home often enough but not much makes me nostalgic any more, but this photo definitely does. That one can still enjoy such simple pleasures makes me want to keep coming back. Thanks for the treat.

    Isle of beauty, isle of splendour,

    Isle to all so sweet and fair,

    All must surely gaze in wonder

    At thy gifts so rich and rare.

    Rivers, valleys, hills and mountains,

    All these gifts we do extol.

    Healthy land, so like all fountains,

    Giving cheer that warms the soul.

    I love Dominica!

    Some people seem to be living some meaningless lives. So they come onto DNO to make outrageous and dumb comments to purposefully generate the irate of other readers.

    In doing that I guess they feel relevant.

    DNO I’m a big fan of your paper but some a those degenerate and vile comments should definitely not be posted. I don’t believe in censorship but some of these post are just simply appauling! Like it or not DNO you’re an abassador for Dominica, so make better editorial choices.

      No need for this. No respect whatsoever. Have respect for DNO readers/users. Who wants to know this? Keep your personal and sinful escapades to yourself. It is irrelevant to the photo. This is a comment that should definitely have been disqualified from DNO Website. :twisted:
