  1. Karen and I met on Yahoo personals and could not be happier! At first telling people how we met seemed a little strange, but it was never an issue between the two of us. I think it is becoming a lot more common and accepted these days. Sure, there are creeps on the internet, but they are out there in the real world too.
  2. I will be sure to contribute first thing tomorrow morning. We don't have a whole lot of San Juan stuff, but a lot of the west coast. And great photos from everyone so far!
  3. The whole equation was wrong from the start. The bailout is for about 700,000,000,000 dollars. Divide that by 200,000,000 and you get 3,500 each. Still not bad, but not enough to make a windfall of a difference. Has anyone else seen an AIG commercial since this whole debacle started and gotten really pissed? So, they still want us to buy insurance and whatnot through them even though they are in the shitter. Lets take it a step further. -My paycheck is taxed. -AIG wants some of my post-tax income for their failing product. -While they still get some of my tax money from Uncle Sam. -So, whether or not I buy their shitty product, they are getting my money regardless
  4. Email the hotel to see if they or any of the tour operators onsite offer that tour. Check with Home - Cancun Valet They are a great company and might be able to help out.
  5. A free pass for what? Going to do something with his son? Oh the horror of missing a fucking football game. From my view...... I am a diehard Yankee fan. You cut me, my blood comes out pinstriped. I almost did not buy my current car because it is red and red reminds me of the Boston Red Sox. But, I would pass up watching a game on tv for family any day, any time anywhere. No questions.

I do way too much of that at work.
  7. Ah yes. That scene was hilarious/disturbing/sick. Karen was just sitting there with her mouth open wondering what the hell she was watching. Like I told her, I live tv that makes me question my humanity.

I must be real fucked up because I can't even think of anything that made me cringe. I think Jason needs a little vacation or something.
  9. So, last night's two episodes were pretty damn good. I was dying laughing when Charlie and Dee were walking down the street like junkies needing their fix of human meat. Racist cannibals. One of my favorites......... Day Man, Fighter of the Night Man, Champion of the Sun. Master of Karate and friendship. I do have to say though that I liked the first season when Danny Devito was not on it. He bugs me for some reason.
  10. Do you have a flash Morgan? If so, making an enclosure and bouncing the light off the sides and top will make a huge difference. Also, give it a try outside. Natural light will make the diamond sparkle a whole lot more. You can use some white posterboard to shield or direct light on the subject.

You can gop very far south and the resorts on the coast become more and more remote. Not exactly authentic Mexican. If you want that, go to Merida, but it is not on the coast. Further south of Tulum, almost to Belize is Bacalar. This place is really amazing, it's an inland lake where the cenote water meet the sea waters. it's called the lagoon of seven colors because the different water types and mixes of, create distinct shades of blue in the lagoon. if you can get yourself a raft or small boat it would be much more fun. You can buy a two person raft to row in Playa del carmen at Wal-Mart or mega for about $50-$60. There are small hotels on the lagoon and the city of Bacalaar which is small but authentic. The trip from The RM will take you through Carillo Puerto which is a very authentic mexican town. You can also stop in Majuhual, which is a strange little town on the a beautiful coast. it was hit by a hurricane last year, so was Bacalaar so i don't know what they are like now. I imagine things are back to normal now. There is a town between cancun and Playa called Puerto Morelos. This is a tourist town but it's much smaller and has a different vibe. It's very easy to get to Tulum and Puerto Morelos from anywhere in the RM so they are a good place to start. Merida may be yopur best bet for authenticity, but I admit, I have not yet been there. It's about 5-8 hours from the RM. All of these places can be reached by buses or you can drive a rental car. Yup. What he said. As far as I know, Majuhual is pretty much back up and running now. There is still a bunch of damage, but inns and hotels are open and everyone down there sure would appreciate the business.
  12. I took a little test drive with chrome and I am back to firefox. Maybe when the final product gets released it will be better. I also don't like the terms of service or whatever they are called that basically give google ownership of your life. Firefox 3.1 should be out next month anyway. I will be all over that.
  13. I have one more that I want to get rid of. But I am just going to get something bigger, better and probably stupider right over it. Has the laser removal been working? I have always wondered if it worked well or not and if it leaves a scar behind.
  14. After just having brain surgery a few months ago, I can totally empathize. I was pretty scared before the surgery and not looking forward to the recovery at all. A few things that helped me before and after...... - Have faith in your doctor/surgeon. As long as you trust them, you have to get your mind around the idea that they do this all the time and know what they are doing. This is their job and they do it well - As for being alone in the hospital... Drugs. Painkillers. They do wonders to keep your mind in la la land for a while. I do not remember a thing from the first few days and even after that I was still drugged up enough to be able to sleep comfortably. And hospitals are usually very willing to bend the visiting hours for a spouse/fiance/etc. I was very worried about that too. In the end, it turned out just fine. - Positive thinking promotes healing! Make a mantra for yourself to repeat over and over when you feel like you need some extra strength. Mine was....... "Don't underestimate underdogs, they can beat the world And come back for more". Just a lyric from a song that always cheers me up when I am down. Believe me, it works. Sometimes you need to fake it by repeating it over and over until you start believing it. There was a period right after the surgery in the hospital that I was in so much pain I was sure I was about to die. Literally. Looking back on it, I know it was not life threatening but it sure felt like it at the time. I did my best to focus through all the pain and the drugs and noise and everything. I concentrated on how I could not wait to be out of the hospital so I could give my wife a huge hug. That was all I wanted. I just needed something positive to look forward to. That helped a lot in dealing with the pain and the discomfort of being in the hospital. Knowing that there was a light at the end of the tunnel kept me motivated and strong.
  15. I have been counting the days until the new season starts. I love that show! I got into it kind of late. I just started watching it last year. Now, I have been playing catch up by watching all the older episodes online instead of working.
