Enjoying a relaxing beach chair and umbrella watching the waves come in on St. Martin

Sorry for the lack of stories.  We will be posting again in the next few days as we, I, catch up on the Upstate’s happenings for the past week.

My wife and I took a well needed vacation and part of the deal with the wife was…no politics.  I must admit that was pretty hard.  No news, no email, no internet (partly because it was $60 for 5 hours of access at our hotel in St. Martin), and no technology besides the camera to take pictures.

We had a great time and now we are catching up with the world.

On a side note, we further discovered the need to know multiple languages.  We expect people to come to America and speak English, and we should do the same.  My French hasn’t been used in about 10 years, needless to say, it was rough and thankfully most of the locals spoke English.  We will be touching up on and learning our French as a result of our experiences.  Does anyone have an old copy of Rosetta Stone – French?

The one newsbit I did catch was in the airport returning home, “Iraqi Journalist Throws Shoe at President Bush.”  We’ll read the rest of the story a little later this evening.
