I spent most of my money on booze, broads and boats. The rest I wasted.

Re: What is Your Favorite Quote?

Two favorites:

1) If someone has a problem, don't make it yours!
2) Don't make any waves! The world is a big ocean, and you're floating in the smallest canoe.

From the movie men in black:

A person is smart. People are dumb.
Everything they've ever "known" has been
proven to be wrong. A thousand years ago
everybody knew as a fact, that the earth
was the center of the universe. Five
hundred years ago, they knew it was flat.
Fifteen minutes ago, you knew we humans
were alone on it. Imagine what you'll know
tomorrow. Tommy Lee Jones-MIB

Now, older and wiser, I suspect that Nelson maybe, possibly, (tongue-in-cheek and in an ad hominem way) referred to THE cook aboard ship.
A well fed crew is a happy crew. Cold beer, please!

Recommended reading for any cruisers heading for, or out in, Pacific waters...

Wasn't Captain Cook the one who said, "Hey guys, these Sandwich Islanders are friendly! They want to have us over for dinner!"
