    Hi Phil,
    Ya, strange language - just close enough to spanish to be really confusing. And yes this winter is COLD - thought I'd freeze to death 'til I got as far south as Marathon (Vaca Key, FL).
    You must be quite a sailor! I've heard the Biscay can be treacherous.
    My learning curve has flattened out a lot. I'm sitting on a mooring waiting for electrical and rigging work to get done so I can get back to cruising and learning. But Hey! I've left work behind (for now) and don't have to be on a schedule.
    Let's switch to email. Mine is roark . margo @ gmail . com [take out the spaces].
    Cheers,
    Margo

    Hi Boatman,
    Actually that was taken before I left it all behind. How's Portugal? Are you without a boat?
