take a page, stat

Here in Bermuda, Remembrance Day is a day of observance & a statutory holiday. Since it falls on Sunday this year, we have today (Monday) off to make up for it. Now I've mentioned before how the newspaper is not in production during statutory holidays. Well, last night I found out, the local news isn't either. So, no newspaper & no nightly news? How on earth would we know what's afoot on Sunday? Well surprisingly, at least the newspaper's website is up & running, with breaking news that Bermuda has lost the cricket match against Dubai, being played in UAE's capital - Abu Dhabi. I had no idea Dubai's team or more precisely UAE's team was that good. They beat Bermuda! Well, in the first place, I had no idea there was a match on. What am I saying??? It's cricket! There's always a match being played somewhere! I'm sure my father's watched it though & had I spoken to him last night or in the wee hours of the morning, I would have heard all about it.

Anyway, enough about cricket. Getting back to the lack of newspapers & newscast coverage on statutory holidays. The rest of the world should take a 'page' from Bermuda's policy of statutory holidays. This is how stat holidays should be observed, dontcha think?

For a quick look at the international cricket fixtures, here is a link.

The Silly Point

It is in a calendar format, easy to refer to.

Thank you, Ladies!

Little Indian, Thanks for the link. I am sure my father & the other obsessed male relatives in my family will appreciate this!

Obsessed males, indeed. And compulsive too, I guess.

The Silly Point is my cricket website. That makes my comment a spam I guess :(

I'm sorry.
