    As the words of the song: “Enjoy yourself. It is later than you think.”
    As it is said, “If music be the food of love, play on.”
    From time to time, people need some sort of enjoyment and fun. Deny no one this opportunity. It is good for the soul, if done accordingly, in a pleasant manner.
    Time flies. Have clean and safe fun.
    Be considerate of others. Preserve health and life.
    God bless everyone as you enjoy yourself, in whatever becoming manner is pleasing to Him.

      Are you a radical and abhor all what is good and worthwhile? We know there are some people as you in Dominica.
      People will say your mind is in the gutter, full of it and you are living in a gutter.
      You will also say those that are named after Saints. Live and let live alone. Dominica is fine with those names.
      We will ask when will you change and live in love and peace with everyone you know, family, friends and associates. This is what you should concern yourself about. This is what is necessary.
      Did you help in performing at least an act of love in Dominica?

      This is their compensation and enjoyment for performing community work. If it were the reverse, they would be too tired to perform it.
      The City will bear the cost of cleaning up. :lol:
      In any case not all people create a mess when they are enjoying themselves. They should be advised to keep it clean while doing so. It could be done especially if there are garbage containers along the way.

      Did you not read that DNO stated comments in capitals will be prohibited? They are annoying to read. It is obvious that you did not learn typing nor were ever a secretary/stenographer, etc. This is expected with everyone purchasing computers and utilizing them. They did not as much as take a business course and are not required to even be educated or learn internet etiquette. They are good at criticisms and non-constructive ones. This will be noticed by some of those comments as yours.
