*'jing-bang' is a phrase that must have come from Scotland where it refers to a whole lot or group of whatever - as in 'the whole jing-bang'; in Jamaica it means 'riff-raff, rabble or old bits and pieces of rubbish', and here I am using it, tongue-in-cheek, for all the varied bits and pieces I have accumulated over my years of research. You will have to decide what is rubbish and what is not! Other terms with similar intent would be 'banggarang', 'carochies', 'parangles' etc., etc.
