Sierra Leone News: Africa NoteBook

Whether the poster I saw in uptown Maryland the other day is a clear judge I wouldn’t know but it said – whiskey is as different as wine .and women but how can you decide whether booze and maths never ever mix.
Well, I wonder whether anyone can tell me without faltering which state in America where “idiots” are not allowed to vote.
Tarry no further, its New Mexico where according to state law, “idiots” are not allowed to vote.
But the statute doesn’t give a clear definition of who fits the description. And talk of the United States, each of the fifty states has its peculiarity.
North Dakota for instance is noted as the state that drank the mouse beer per capita in 2013 and 2014 but fell to second place in 2015 according to a just released survey.
Massachusetts is known to have sixteen of the top twenty five Windiest cities. This means that if you are not physically strong, a gust of wind can blow you sky high.
The signs are that spring will come earlier than expected ground hog or no ground hog. Piercing sunshine and high temperatures have taken off the wintry cold and who stands to benefit than thousands of Bird watchers who have planned to watch the annual spring bird migration in Nebraska’s Platte River in March and April.
Wonders never cease, my grandmother used to say when confronted with some high technology. If she was around and told her that eagles can work for humans, she would have told me, you have been watching many Sherlock Holmes films.
France is training eagles to snatch terrorist drones from the sky as drones have a wide range of useful applications including delivery parcels.
The eagles are to stop the flying drones in their tracks if terrorists launch drones to attack towns and cities in France as they have threatened.
In a recent case, I saw an eagle swooped on a drone and fell it to the ground at a demonstration show in the French city of d’Artagnan.
Well, what do you know?
Some parts of California are going through dire times. Hundreds are fleeing rising floodwaters in San Jo’s as mandatory evacuation orders are put in place.
Overhead warning signs warned motorists over the weekend in California’s soggy northern and eastern regions of flooding as water continued to swell roads, valleys and creeks.
Multiple media reports said water flowed for the durst time in a decade into a 72 foot diameter hole left opened by storms.
Sierra Leone’s eight man Refugee All Stars would come live in Washington D.C. on March 5.
A write up for the event said the Stars have risen like a Phoenix out of the ashes of war and enflamed the passions of fans across the globe with their uplifting songs of hope, Faith and joy.
It described the band as a potent example of the redeeming power of music and the ability of the human spirit to persevere through unimaginable hardship and emerge with optimism intact.
From their humble beginnings in refugee camps in West Africa, the Stars matured into one of Africa’s top touring and recording bands.
Can’t wait to see it happened as they say blues never let tragedy have the last word.
Know your status and be ready for what’s ahead.
