Chef Tim explains The Flying Fish Restaurant Philosophy

There seems to be a lot
of chatter on the internet these days about restaurants and service.
 There also is a long discussion recently about Flying Fish.  It seems
like there are a lot of misunderstandings about what we do, and want to
do, at Flying Fish Restaurant.  I would like to take a moment to try and shed some
light on our thoughts for the restaurant.  

From the
inception of the concept of Flying Fish my goal was to create a place
that had quality and luxury never before attempted on Grand Bahama.
 Lots of people said we should do it in Nassau; that's where all the
people are.  Many said you should do it in Abaco; that's where all the
big wallets are...

Bernard Patrick Burrows, 45

Bernard Patrick Burrows
1963-2008

Don't grieve for me now I'm free, I am following the path God laid for me,I took his hand when I heard him call, I turned my back and left it all,
I could not stay another day to laugh, to love , to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
 
If my parting has left a void, fill it with remembered joy,
A friendship shared, a laugh, my life's been full I savoured much,
Good friends, good times a loved one's touch,
Perhaps my times here seemed all too brief, don't lengthen it now with undue grief,
Light up your hearts and share with me, God wants me now, he set me free

On September 8th a lovely baby boy was born to the late Sybil and Leorard Burrows .  He was given the name Bernard Patrick Burrows. He began his formal education at Sandiland Primary School and later went on to L.W.Young Junior & Senior high School.

After leaving high School he picked up the trade as a Carpenter at Treco  Construction Company. Later he went to work as a mate on a boat for Ted Knowles, where he developed his love for the sea.  At that time he knew that was his calling, so he went back to Scholl to obtain his Captain's license. He worked as a mate for many years before becoming a boat Captain. After a number of years Bernard purchased his own boat were he became a successful fishing boat Charter operator until his untimely demise.

Leave your nets

They forsook their nets, and followed him.
- St. Mark 1:18

Being two points away from losing the women's singles match of the U.S. Open Championship a few days ago, Serena Williams rebounded with a burst of energy to defeat Victoria Azarenka of Belarus, thus creating a three-set final, the last of which was seen in 1995. At one point, the net antagonized Serena and she said at her celebration that she had already begun to prepare her runner-up speech, as it seemed that Victoria was headed to victory.
In tennis, one has to keep the ball over the net or from hitting into it. Many times with precision, speed and skill and the right play, one can "drop" the ball just over the net for a great play. In business, net is the value or price left after tax or other deductions are made. For the fisherman, it is one of the tools of their trade, and yet for many someone is trying to "swing you" or get you tangled up with someone or something that is very much against your wellbeing.
Our text today takes us after Jesus had been baptized by John The Baptist, gone through his 40-day wilderness experience and temptation by Satan. He began by selecting men who would serve with him in His Ministry.
"Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew, his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And Jesus said unto them, 'Come ye after me and I will make you to become fishers of men'. And straightway they forsook their nets and followed him."
What an act of obedience, faith trust and hope. These brothers left their nets, their ship, their hired hands and their father - they left all to follow Jesus. This is the only dedication that Jesus requires for one to leave all to follow him. Leaving all does not mean abandonment, but rather total commitment to his teachings, for "no man can serve two masters - he will hate the one and love the other."
How many of you as you read today are aware that Jesus is calling out to you to leave your nets of worry, frustration, care and anger? Sometimes when I look at the faces of some, you can see the "net" of discouragement, disillusionment, doubt and despair entangling the hope of their future.
To follow Christ is far better than following misguided men and women with no sense of direction and no purpose for the journey called "life". He's calling you to leave your nets of adultery, fornication, promiscuity, jealousy, greed, avarice and hate. Oh, the many nets that get in the way of us not following Jesus.
At a recent funeral service, the pastor called on all those who "dye" their hair to cease and desist and let their gray be seen. In other words he was calling for the leaving of "dye nets". I smiled to myself as I was all "Bigen-ed" up - Lord have mercy!
All of us are familiar with our drawback nets. Paul said that we are not to let little things easily beset us, but we must press towards the mark of the high calling which is in Christ Jesus. As a nation, we must leave the nets of self-righteousness and selfishness. We must leave the nets of crime, violence, stealing and lying. We must leave the net of ingratitude and dishonesty. One goes out of their way to help a person(s) who claims to be in "need" and they turns around and steals your very "eye" out of your head by fraudulent deeds and actions. We must leave the nets of poor and base character. We must leave the nets of the absence of faith and values in our lives.
There is a call going out today by many voices - the voice of wrong and the voice of right. Whose voice are you going to listen to and whose call are you going to accept? It is my prayer that you leave those burdened nets behind you and follow The Christ whose yoke is easy and burden is light.

Turning to the caveman's diet

In an age of microwaves, cooktops, fast food and ready prepared meals, the thought of adopting a high protein diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, void of processed food sources, may seem less than palatable and even impractical.
But for the 21st century hunter-gatherer this is a lifestyle change and quite possibly the untapped secret to a healthier, longer life.
The Paleolithic Diet, a diet similar to that of the caveman in the Paleolithic or Stone Age, has changed little from that of the first humans million of years ago.
As noted by family physician Dr. Ben Balzer in "Introduction to The Paleolithic Diet", humans have eaten meat, fish, fowl and the leaves, roots and fruits of plants for millions of years, but a major obstacle to getting more calories from the environment has been the fact that many plants and other food sources are inedible without processing.
Dr. Balzer also noted that a selection of these include, grains, beans and potatoes, which although full of energy, are inedible in the raw form due to the toxins they contain.
An agricultural breakthrough around 10,000 years ago meant that these once inedible foods could be consumed when cooked. Heat destroyed enough toxins to render them edible.
What has occurred in the last few thousand years is the average man, woman and child leading increasingly sedentary lives and eating a highly processed synthetic diet. Here in The Bahamas the problem is acute. According to leading health experts, 70 percent of Bahamians are overweight or obese.

Paleo
The website thepaleodiet.com sets out the basics of the diet, which includes the consumption of fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and seafood and low-glycemic carbohydrates that promote good health. It is low in refined sugars and grains, saturated and trans fats, salt, high-glycemic carbohydrates and processed foods that can frequently cause weight gain and other health problems.
I have had intimate contact with someone who has made the change back to the old way of eating. For my father Royston A. Jones Sr., a previous high carbohydrate consumer who underwent a lifestyle change in mid-July 2007, the Paleo appeared the ideal diet after months of extensive research.
He said there were a lot of opposing views on the ideal eating lifestyle, ranging from vegetarianism, veganism and meat-based diets - all with moderate to extreme versions - but it has been quite the journey after more than five years adapting to Paleo.
"In the first few months it was very, very strange," said Jones, as he recalled the first few months of his lifestyle transition.
"I can only describe it with hindsight as withdrawal, very jittery, cloudy mind. I just couldn't think cleary for periods of time and I was low on energy and irritable.
"I also had a real desire for carbohydrates - sweet things, bulky grainy foods - thinking I need something solid. I was wondering what was going on and this lasted for at least three to four months.
"I now refer to that period as a period of adjustment, and although it improved as I went along it took at least that amount of time before I felt revitalized."
Jones, 53, said after many years of attempting to address some primary health concerns, including high cholesterol, both he and his physician have marked noticeable physical and health-related changes.
"I now have better stamina for long endurance events and I can sustain energy for a longer period," Jones said.
"I think glucose stored in the muscle runs out pretty quickly but fat is a more dense form of energy, a heavier source of calories. When you start burning fat as an energy source you can sustain exercise much longer and a lot of the studies say that.
"You're not necessarily faster but you can go for longer. In terms of eating, I can go for much longer periods of times without food. I can go a whole day without any gastrointestinal discomfort."
Julia Lee, registered dietician and coordinator of clinical nutrition at Doctors Hospital, said there are benefits and drawbacks from leading a Paleo lifestyle.
And while most health professionals would agree that a plant-based diet that incorporates animal-based foods is a good way to go, she added, the Paleo may not be a practical dieting option to comply with in the long-term for the average person.
"One of the foods that is often omitted is white potatoes because they are considered to be a high glycemic index food, but I have really never met anyone with health issues because of eating potatoes," Lee said.
"I think that you could maintain the energy and gain the calories needed to function and live healthily with the Paleo diet. But the more restrictive, the more foods you say no to, the more you may be at risk of eliminating certain nutrients."
Lee emphasized, though, that the closer to nature your food is, the better your diet and long-term health will be because processing food often removes good nutrients, which food producers then try to put back.

Changing your lifestyle
Many historical and anthropological studies show that hunter-gatherers were generally healthy, fit and largely free of the degenerative cardiovascular diseases common in modern societies, according to James H. O'Keefe Jr., MD, and Loren Cordain, Ph.D, authors of "How to Become a 21st-Century Hunter-Gatherer".
"Our remote ancestors consumed only natural and unprocessed food foraged and hunted from their environment," reads the research paper by Dr. Cordain.
"This subsistence strategy provided a diet of lean protein that was high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other beneficial phytochemicals.
"The typical Paleolithic diet compared with the average modern American diet contained two to three times more fiber, one-and-a-half to two times more polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, four times more Omega-3 fats, but 60 to 70 percent less saturated fat.
"Protein intake was two to three times higher, and potassium intake was three to four times higher. However, sodium intake was four to five times lower.
"Finally, the Paleolithic diet contained no refined grains and sugars (except for seasonally available honey). Clearly, the ongoing epidemic of cardiovascular diseases is at least in part due to these striking discrepancies between the diet we are designed to eat and what we eat today."
Jones also spoke of other noticeable physical benefits he thinks might be the result of his lifestyle change.
"I also used to have a significant case of shifting clouds (Tinea versicolor) on my back and after about six months on the diet someone looked at my back and said, 'What happened to your shifting clouds?' They had just disappeared after 25 years of them being there and getting progressively worse," Jones said.
"It seems that the immune system operates more effectively and does not react to lifestyle problems based on the diet - at least that's my theory.

"Certain foods I hadn't been able to eat for 10 years without causing stomach upset like raisins and grapes, I was able to digest in any volume without any problem, which had gone on for 20 years."
Jones said it is equally important for him to complement his eating habits with workout regimes that match the high endurance activities of his ancestors. An ardent athlete and sports enthusiast, Jones frequently spends two to three hours on average up to four days a week kayaking and rowing, running on the sand and spearfishing.

An analyst of the North Abaco blowout

Dear Editor,

Dr. Hubert A. Minnis (FNM-Killarney), the now de jure leader of the Free National Movement, has nothing to be ashamed of as a result of his party's defeat in the recently concluded by-election in North Abaco.
He and the majority of his team ran an excellent campaign but they were fatally hampered by the unpopularity of the former incumbent, the clownish performance of the "wooden" candidate and, of course, they were absolutely no match for the well-oiled political machinery of the Progressive Liberal Party, led by National Chairman Bradley Roberts.
The good doctor was totally correct in disavowing any blame for the debacle in North Abaco which, in my opinion, was set in place by Hubert "No More" Ingraham. To start with, the candidate was shoved down the gullet of the FNM by that character, in my view.
Secondly, the candidate was the worst candidate ever to be offered by a major political party in recent memory. Thirdly, the former leader should never have been allowed to appear on any platform in support of the candidate. Ingraham, God bless his soul, did some great stuff in his first two terms in office. His antics and delusions, politically, in 2011, however, may have forever tarnished his now tattered legacy, such as it might be.
The defeat in North Abaco was inevitable when the candidate made his questionable declaration and it was sealed when he refused or failed to respond to invitations from the media, especially Real Talk Live. He appeared to be "clownish" and massively "confused" about simple things and events.
The fact that he was able to garner over 1,000 votes is a credit to the hard work done by Dr. Minnis and his team, despite the daunting odds. The leader of the FNM must now move swiftly to jettison detractors and backstabbers from the inner sanctum of his party. Those who cannot fish or cut bait, must now get the hell out of the front seat of the boat. The Riot Act 2012 must now be read to all who call themselves FNMs.
In any organization, leadership is vital and must come from the top. Immediately, an official press spokesperson should be elected or selected by the party and Dr. Minnis. All of those loose lipped press releases and gratuitous statements by defeated and rejected former candidates and ministers must cease forthwith. There can only be one head. Hydra, the mythical multiple-headed dragon, was slain hundreds of years ago.
Persons who are unable or incapable of securing reelection should be the last individuals speaking or appearing to speak on behalf of the FNM. To allow this charade to continue and to have some of them snipping at the heels of the leader are a distraction from the focal point of the FNM which should be to return to governance at the earliest opportunity.
I am not an FNM and wish them well but it must start to act like a serious and mature organization. The apparent clowns, tin gods, bamboo queens and holograms have got to be placed at the back of the bus for the good and advancement of the party. Dr. Minnis must now handpick his advisors and call a special convention of his party early next year to put in place a dynamic, motivated and cohesive team that shares his vision for the "new" FNM.
Ingraham is passé and now a figure of yesterday. Dr. Minnis is now the man and he must start to act like he, in fact, is. I told him months ago that he had to shake off the "hologramistic" shadow of Ingraham and move to mold the FNM in his own image. It took him a long time to heed my advice but, better late than never.
The weeks and months ahead are going to be crucial to the nation in that joblessness is still a major concern; the never-ending roadwork is still disrupting the smooth flow of traffic and continue to decimate businesses along the affected corridors; our national infrastructure and governmental buildings need immediate remedial attention and, of course, we need to conceptualize and flesh out a national plan for the country.
Dr. Minnis may be the leader of a rump party but he should understand that where there are two or more gathered he can achieve much. He should learn from the debacle of the defeat of the PLP in 2007 and how it roared back to power five short years later.
The gold rush administration, however, is not to be taken lightly and it should never be underestimated. It is led by a man who, by his own admission, is in his political twilight. Hovering in the wings, however, is the hardest working man in current politics, Philip Brave Davis (PLP-Cat Island, Rum Cay and San Salvador).
Brave's lifelong ambitions will not be denied save by an act of God. To God then, in all things, be the glory.

- Ortland H. Bodie Jr.
