For all those people who moan about there being nothing to do in Bermuda - if you choose not to do anything I list, you aren't allowed to complain for a whole month! ;o)

Hi Kids! The Internet Gods were not smiling down on me yesterday but I'm hoping for a little more luck today! The new-look website should be available by the end of today but, don't worry, you'll still be kept up-to-date no matter what version of the site is up. Here are the latest Bermuda events: Now that summer has officially ended, Lemon Tree are trying to empty out their fridge... Continue reading

Happy Friday Kids! If all goes well, this should be the last post you see on the current site as the new-look NTDIB.com is unveiled next week! I for one am very excited about it and can't wait to show you all (really hope you all like it). Here's are the latest things to do in Bermuda: The next Chewstick Griot Session tomorrow, Saturday, October 20th promises dancehall vibes with... Continue reading

Morning Ladies and Gents! Hopefully, you have all survived Rafael unscathed! Does it seem to you like all the 2012 hurricanes are just playing with us so far? Let's not complain about that though, as it sure beats the alternative! Although it would be kind of nice if just one would give us a day off work – what’s with all the weekends and evenings, Mother Nature? Anyway, here’s what’s... Continue reading

Morning Troops! We're lucky enough to still have blue skies for the most part so far this month. It is getting very close to that inbetween time of year that makes it really difficult to choose what to wear in the morning though. I'm already painfully slow in the mornings so anything that requires brain power before I've had my first caffeine of the day can be quite disastrous -... Continue reading

Hi Kids! Hurray for October, probably the best month of the year! Oktoberfest, Halloween and, most importantly, my birthday to look forward to – what’s not to like?! Here is some of what’s going on in Bermuda this month: There are still a few days of the largest Oktoberfest celebration on the island at Swizzle Inn, Bailey's Bay as they will be finishing up on Sunday, October 7th.

Morning Kids! Lots of Bermuda events coming up so let's just get right down to it! Dancing is a great way to meet new people and get some exercise but if you've been a little nervous about signing up for a whole course, here's a great opportunity to have a little taster. Sabor Dance School are offering an evening of free introductory classes at the Berkeley Cultural Centre on Friday,... Continue reading

Happy Friday Kids! Today's edition is a bit of a monster. As usual, once the weather starts to cool a little, more organised events start popping up. Here's what's happening in Bermuda: The Bermuda Rugby Football Union are raising funds and celebrating the end of summer at their BRFU Family Fun Day at Snorkel Park on Saturday, September 22nd. From 1pm until 7pm, they invite you to join them at... Continue reading

Hi Kids I can't believe that we're over halfway through September and I have only just found out that it is Save The Koala Month! I haven't saved a single koala yet so I guess I had better get cracking. There are bound to be loads hanging around the Railway Trail or somewhere. Here are some other things to do in Bermuda during September: The Botanical Society and the Bermuda... Continue reading

Hi Kids! I can't believe how quickly it changed from summer to full-on hurricane season! Thankfully, Leslie turned out to be a bit of a damp squib after all - here's hoping we continue to be lucky and get through the rest of the season with no injuries or major damage (and wouldn't it be nice for the bad weather to hit mid-week instead of at the weekend for once?)....

Happy September Kids! Well, that was another fun holiday weekend but, sadly, summer is almost over. The leaves will soon start to turn shades of autumn red and gold before floating and falling from the trees. The lush greenery will soon be replaced by soft snowfall on the bare branches. Wait a minute, we live in Bermuda, so this won't happen! It might get colder and rainier but at least... Continue reading

Happy Friday Troops! Don't forget to watch out for the Blue Moon tonight - it's not actually blue in colour, so don't be too disappointed, but at least you can sing the song at it. The holiday weekend is almost upon us - here are the latest Bermuda events to keep you out of trouble: Cosmopolitan Nightclub (the venue most recently known as Moon) is hosting IParty, a pre-Labour Day...

Happy Friday Kids! There are but a few weeks left of boating season so you had better make the most of it before it's gone! Luckily, there are THREE cruise options in this post alone that are coming up in September. Here's what's happening in Bermuda: I already let you know about the Moonlight Movie Series having a Labour Day Weekend screening but they have managed to sneak in an... Continue reading

Good morning Troops! I am kind of shocked and distressed to find out that it isn't Friday yet - is anyone else having a really long week or is it just me? Anyway, enough complaining from me, here are the latest Bermuda events: Last time was such a success that they're making it a regular occurrence! Worldwide Wednesdays at Ten is an offering of live entertainment every other Wednesday, starting... Continue reading

Hi Kids! Big news - there is a fancy new NTDIB website coming very soon! I'm sure you're all very excited but do try and restrain yourselves somehow.. In the meantime, I've been experimenting a little with the old one so that now the flyers show up right in the post - just click on them to enlarge. All (constructive) feedback is very welcome: The Rainbow Alliance of Bermuda is... Continue reading

Morning Ladies and Gents Hope you all had a wonderful Cup Match and have fully recovered by now! If you haven't fully recovered yet then you probably want to get yourself checked out by a doc as it was kinda a long time ago.. Ten are offering some live entertainment tonight as M. Brian Swan (live samples, groove box and bass) and Nicola Swan (vocals), also known as 1Undread, will... Continue reading

Happy Cup Match Eve Kids! Technically, we've had a three-day work week, however I expect that most of you have mentally checked-out already (for anyone who did manage to get some work done this week, I take my hat off to you). Hope you all have a safe and fun holiday and here's what's going on in Bermuda for this weekend and beyond: Cup Match is a time of community... Continue reading

Morning Peeps! Well, we seem to have made it through a good chunk of the week without anyone being struck by lightning, which is always good! Let's hope any more crazy weather thinking about coming our way gets it over with before next week - soggy Cup Matches are just not so much fun (although they are still fun, just not so much as sunny Cup Matches)! Here is the... Continue reading

Sure Lisa, I'll add those in.

Morning Kids! I am completely amazed at the number of people who I see going for lunchtime runs in this heat - how do you do it without collapsing?! Do you stop for ice-cream along the way? And when did they stop calling it jogging? Anyway, enough of my random thoughts - here are the latest Bermuda events and activities to keep you all out of trouble: Forks Over Knives...
