The term 'bulbsoup' comes from the imaginative mind of Pearl Reid (1919 - 1995). She was enchanted by what people of the Caribbean call 'bright children' (smart). She could be heard musing in her rocking chair - placed strategically on the veranda to get optimum 'breeze' - as one of these 'bright' children passed, that the child is as bright as the stadium bulb (this bulb lights the streets of Kingston for miles). She would often comment that these children must have drank a lot of bulb soup, while chuckling to herself. This creative, yet corny pun, is the name of our site because our aim is to enable you to feed the bright spark in you, with our brand of 'bulb soup', or information.
