Grocery Shopping in Miami for $20 - Gade 20 Dola market nan Miami mezanmi!

They say life is expensive in Haiti but it's not only in Haiti. People in Miami better start farming in their back yard. This is $20 worth of grocery food shipping in Miami. Can you believe this?

That was a few years ago. Now it's probably worse!

Men vs Women - How are men and women different?

Men vs Women - How are men and women different?

Question: Are men and women the same of are they different? You often hear Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, actually it is the title of a book written by American author and relationship counselor John Gray, but what is it about men and women.

I like these phrases by Mark B. Kastleman regarding the differences between the male and female brain:

Men can narrowly focus their brains on specific tasks or activities for long periods of time without tiring. Women are better equipped to divide their attention among multiple activities or tasks.

Men are able to separate information, stimulus, emotions, relationships, etc. into separate compartments in their brains, while women tend to link everything together.

In your opinion, how are men and women different, or are they?

Like Forrest Gump says: And that's all I have to say about that!!!

Like Forrest Gump says: And that's all I have to say about that!!!

Sometimes I report something about Haiti and I have absolutely nothing to say about it. Good or bad... Or maybe I want to say something but I think it's best I just keep my mouth shut.

Times like these, I remember the Forrest Gump.

"That's all I have to say about that."

The Haitian Creole translation for this is: "M pap di way!"

Good Friday : Vendredi Saint in Haiti

Good Friday : Vendredi Saint in Haiti

Good Friday or Vendredi Saint is a holiday (jour ferrier) in Haiti.

Good Friday is the Friday before Easter Sunday (Dimanche de Pâques).

Good Friday is the the day that commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. What is it called Good Friday? Hmmm...

Good Friday is a very important day for all Haitian Christians, especially Catholics. On Good Friday in Haiti, Christians commemorate the arrest, trial and death of Jesus on the cross. Haitian Christians remember that Jesus died for our sins.

Only Haitians will get it... Clever...

Bank overdraft fees, don't you just hate them?

Bank overdraft fees, don't you just hate them?

You may hate those annoying bank overdraft fees but your bank loves it!

Did you know?

The 3 biggest banks in America made more than $6 billion last year just from ATM fees and overdraft fees. Ouch!!!

As if that wasn't enough, Read this from Bank of America:

If your account has a negative balance for 5 consecutive business days, you will receive an additional one-time Extended Overdrawn Balance Charge of $35 on the sixth day.

The Extended Overdrawn Balance Charge is in addition to any applicable fees for overdraft items, insufficient funds and returned items.

Being broke is a punishment...
