Dial Times: Arima Expatriates

Not another Facebook website! Oh hell yes, another Facebook website, but one that allows you to post relevant information without the hindrances presented by sites with similar names. So why choose a name that is so familiar with a small number of well-known and popular sites? Well, why not? I am from Arima, and I am very aware of the significance of the Dial to all Arimians! 

Here is the deal:
Ok, this is the thing. So many sites have made it difficult to post information, and to be honest, we will also take issue with certain posts. So let's state the obvious. We will attempt to stay away from topics that really cause conflict: politics, race, religion, and selfishness. 

Our Mission:
We want to promote harmony and posts that provide needed information. We don't want to be a site that becomes an obituary centerpiece for readers. I do hope you realize that no one site will please everyone. So let's attempt to provide a site that promotes positive ideas and real information. Let's provide entertainment, but not become a site that provides every silly joke or meme that social media provides. I will be firm and fair. Just communicate with me, and let's grow the membership. 

We have two sites on Facebook, apart from the site admin's personal page. Facebook/Sokah2Soca and Facebook/Dial Times: Arima Expatriates. Let's do this; let's have some fun!

Video Presentation via YouTube (writeup from YouTube):
Please give a thumbs up for this video, which accompanies the song "Arima Was," written by Melan Garcia. This live performance was recorded at the unveiling of the Hyarima statue in Arima, Trinidad and Tobago. The recording was also published in 1997 on the CD "Hyarima: Guardian of Parang."  This is the first time any part of the video of the recording will be seen, and its presentation is enhanced with images and photographs of Arima personalities in sports, culture, education, politics, business, religion, and other notable citizens of the borough. See how many of these Arimians you can recognize.
