On Second Thought was a weekly column this blogger wrote for The Bahama Journal from July 7, 1998 through September 7, 1999. Some of them might be dated by now, but I republish them here for what they are worth.

My parents always told me that I would become disillusioned with our political process. Of course being younger and naïve I honestly felt one could accept most politicians and the people involved at face value…my parents were right.

This is not an exercise in FNM bashing because they have brought us a long way on the road toward freedom and responsibility, unfortunately they do not seem able to articulate that rights or privileges bear responsibilities. They are incontrovertibly linked liked scorched and conch.

The big stuff I’ve got to work on is on hold because of the weather. My paint shack is packed to the rafters and I can’t work in there at the minute. I’ve got a few items going out this week, which will give me chance to move things about a bit – then hopefully normal service will resume. Each time I tried to move things today, the heavens opened, so I gave up.

In the meantime, my kitchen has become a temporary paint shack and I’ve a vintage cabinet in there that’s being painted in Annie Sloan ‘Paris Grey’ and ‘Old White’. It has the most slender, tapered, elegant legs, with a very stylish look about it. It would have cost a small fortune in its heyday. The top has a glass cover, which I’m going to make use of, by painting an artwork that will be protected by the glass.

Fed up with the rain, I went to an auction viewing today and spotted an absolutely gorgeous bureau. The varnish is tired and peeling on top (always a good sign for me because it puts off the bidders who just buy to sell straight on again). But look past the superficial wear and tear, the bureau has the most glorious bulbous carved, stumpy legs (I never thought I’d find myself getting hot under the collar by short, fat, stumpy legs, but there you go; that’s life). Loads of detail to work with and a good solid piece of Edwardian oak to coax into being, once again, lovely to look at.

2. George Michael’s first interview in Cyprus was with John Vickers in 1984, in his Wham days, for CyBC 2 Radio, the state broadcaster. John is a rare kind of journalist in Cyprus and he will admit it himself, interviewing George Michael  topless was an honour!!!

4.Urban legend has it that George Michael has a house Cyprus. There is some confusion on this however. While a photo does exist online (Google it and see) it’s not clearly stated by the architect  who designed the property if it’s George Michael the famous singer’s house  – which is misleading. Also consider there are probably thousands of people called George Michael (and I know at least 5 of them) and this one is clearly not accurate. Whatever the case George came to Cyprus but pop stars, in such a small place, always move in silence.

5.Yusuf Islam frequents Cyprus often as well and when George Michael passed away he tweeted: ‘So sad to hear my Cypriot brother @GeorgeMichael has passed away.Will miss him & pray God will have mercy on him. Condolences to his family’
