I have met Buddha and his name in this lifetime is DOJ.
Zee you better watch out, I'll be rafting up to you next year. Plan on fishing Albacore next summer and wintering in Mexico.

Re: How Life has Changed ... Unfortunately

"How has life changed ......"fortunately" ....... Pretty much the new fortune comes from knowledge. Forums like those here give us awareness of what the cautions and opportunities are.... I know where the shoals are and where the good deals are because of the internet! I know what inlets have greater risks and where the lowest diesel prices are because of the "net". I left the Chesapeake southbound in 1972 with little support, great expectations and little forecast of what to expect. Today, I know what's ahead. what's the depth, what's the cost, what's the crowd, what's the weather...... everything! How has life changed? Pretty much it's allowed me to know whats going on and what to expect!

I think it will transmittable by touch, given all the touch screens these days and the number of humans that interact with them, talk about unsanitary YUK!

My guess is that whatever the next plague / pandemic is that it won't be named by colour - and certainly not that one .

What do the scandals and incompetence of the current administration I have listed above have to do with Fox News? You can't possibly be living in a vacuum . . . are you? Which of the above statements are untrue . . . oh, wise one? Your response will be well anticipated by present and future historians. Good luck, good sailing and . . . if you do not answer the question correctly, I implore you to go to the following website for immediate assistance. Sincerely, Rognvald the Barbarian

The "Dark Age" was not so dark as those renaissance historians made it out to be.

The worst time in European history was probably the 100 years' war.

Actually I am aiming for that. Come this fallr I'll work one day a week for the
Swiss Railways, increasing to about two days a week during winter. Then come spring I'll be happily unemployed again. I calculated that working about 40 days a year will earn me enough to maintain my frugal lifestyle. If I manage to get a bit of return on my savings I might even be able to buy a new boat, in stead of a used one...
