This has to be the largest "Setting Up" in The Bahamas to date. A “settin up” was an event that celebrated the life of a dead person before the funeral the next day. Singing was to send the spirit of the dead to his eternal reward, keep the mourners awake and make sure that the person was actually dead. It was a great time for family and friends to remember.
Pot-cake n. 1. a highly variable canine of mixed heredity found in the Bahamas. 2. a mutt or mongrel in the Bahamas whose name derives from the thick, congealed food remaining in the bottom of a pot of peas and rice it has traditionally been fed. 3. a lovable, lop-eared lopper whose independence, loyalty and antics amuse and ingratiate a large host of dedicated humans. 4. an unwanted liability often born under a truck and abandoned at a garbage dump.
