Happy Birthday Dorothy

This is a very special article that I just added to say happy birthday to our editor and chief of networking for St. Croix Music Magazine. She is the person who contacts musical artist personally one at a time and invites them to read our publication. This takes an incredible amount of time and in two years she has invited over 13,000 bands, musicians, and solo artist to be part of our family. This incredible lady has no enemies in the world and everyone who has ever met her winds up feeling her love.

So if you read this please take a moment to e mail her at and wish her a happy birthday for all that she has done to bring the independent musicians of the world together in one giant family in paradise. I may be the one who writes the articles, but Dorothy is the one who gets people from around the world to read them. We are a real team and Ill love her forever as my wife, best friend, and partner in our united quest to get music by the best independent bands heard by the right people.

Happy Birthday Dorothy! I love you! - JJ

Dorothy's green thumb

Many people think that because we live in paradise we should just be able to throw seeds on the ground and anything will grow. Now there are some places on the island where that may be true, but not everywhere. Some pieces of land have a lot of small rocks mixed into the soil (kalechi), and some are just dryer than others. We just happened to have a place with many rocks.

Some people with that type of land will bring in some top soil from other spots on the island when they want to plant. But we do our yard on a smaller scale where I just dig a hole big enough for a baby tree, and Dorothy pushes in the dirt that we bought at the local store. But thats just the beginning. Its not just planting, watering, and waiting. Well, at least not for Dorothy.

She goes out in the yard each day and talks to the fruit trees, and what ever else is growing at the time. I used to think it was just something cute that she liked to do. But when the results came in, people were blown away, and she was the one with the last laugh.

Dorothy's giant avocados 2010

Many of our readers e mailed us the last time we featured some of the wonders from Dorothys incredible garden of fruit trees. This year her avocados are so big that some of them may be record size. We have given them to many of our friends here on the island and not only did they all say that they are the biggest avocados that theyve ever seen, but also the tastiest!

Dorothy always goes out into our little piece of tropical heaven and talks to the trees and plants while thanking God for taking care of them (and us). She says thats why her harvest is always so huge and mouth watering. Some of you scientific gardeners may not believe in her system, but the proof is in these photos and all the compliments from the people we gave them to.

JJ offering some avocados to Stacy, Luis, and baby Sofia
The only thing different about this year is that we had to hurry and pick all the remaining avocados from the tree because hurricane Earl was coming very fast. So now we have a table full of these giant fruits and we are about to try to freeze some of them. Too bad some of you are not here because we would gladly give you one to take home. By the way, most of them are over 12 inches long!
Peace from paradise, - JJ Rocks
