DJ Owens RIP

We will be absent from the blog for a while.  In fact, we have been absent already.  Our grandson DJ was sick with non-Hodgkin lymphoma brikket.  In fact, he just lost his battle and will be buried Thursday.  Truthfully, I feel a little low on energy plus we will be traveling to Texas to my son's house for another grandson's graduation. Therefore, I will not be writing for another couple of weeks.  Regards to all.

Facebook Liveaboard Sailboat page

I am being entertained by the facebook liveaboard sailboat page these days.  I thought it would be just another Yahoo type thing with an oppressive sysop.  After a few days looking at I decided it was a reasonably human site so I guess I will stay for a while.  So far there havve been no earth shattering answers to questions or even real good questions but at least it is a human interest page with a focused venue.  Like it if you like it.

PS: after a few days it is getting on my nerves.  You get those same anal guys that make a big deal of a small grammar mistake and totally cloud the issue.  You get the same guys that nitpick small issues with the same results.  And worst of all the guys making a "funny" comment about a serious issue.  However, all-in-all it is still a decent place to peruse.

Water related fun

This is a just for fun experiment on embedding a video.  Perhaps more of these in the future if the mood strikes.
