OTG along the Mayan coast in Mexico is quite popular. Pretty much all along the coast in the Caribbean as well. People from all over the county/world have second homes that are off the grid on ocean front property. I'd like to be able to do it, but no A/C is pretty much a deal breaker for me....

NCL has a week long cruise out of New Orleans that is legit. I've been on it twice, and and going again next month.
Stops in Belize; Roatan, Honduras; Costa Maya Mexico; and Cozumel. Those are some really great ports and they stop for at least 8 hours.

I thought they were asking about Lynne, but I guess it was 'Was'.
Lynne while not a household name, is highly respected by his peers. That guy shows up all over the place playing with some heavy hitters. Heck everybody on that stage tonight was a heavy hitter.
Maybe except Ringo. :lol:...

I work shift work and usually take 1 Tylenol PM before I go to bed when changing shifts. Taking 2 usually leaves me pretty groggy when I wake up.
Tylenol PM (or generic) has about the same ingredients as a OTC sleep aid, but is usually cheaper (even though it has acetomenophene(sp) in it as well)...

He didn't want to work with anybody from the get-go. I don't think he knows how to work with anyone. He's just that immature politically.

Do you honestly think that Obamacare will work/stay in it's current form?
It will either bring the entire healthcare insurance industry to it's knees, or it will be modified so that it is as close to single payer as he can get it.
Once the industry is at it's knees, it will bring on the single...
