Update

Here's an update on several pending items:

THE UN PARTY

I wasn't the only American there. Another neighbor came to the party he's from South Jersey like me and his wife is from Norway, she's Norwayian. So some people spoke English and those that didn't at least tried. The conversations were polite staying away from issues like terrorist in the hood, the UN oil for food program, John Bolton, and airport security for aliens (those from Mar or Venus).

The food was what you would expect at a home of a guy who owns a Salmon farm in Chile. Yup marckrel salad, smoked mackrel, and baked trout as well as smoked salmon. The Caesar shrimp salad was my favs along with the home made pizzas and black beans and rice.

HURRICANE PREPARATIONS

Well after hurricane Charlie several of the local resorts will open (they've been closed since Aug 12, 2004) for Memorial Day weekend with a big parties. A lot of locals are going just to support their business since they lost not only property but a lot of season business from Nov- Apr (their peak time).

Me I'm getting ready for this years hurricane season which begins June 1 by putting in better supplies in my hurricane kit like a battery operated TV and Fan, extra tequila and beer, directions for ice should the power go out for 2 weeks again and I'm emptying my freezer of all food so I don't have anything that can spoil this time. Oh yea...Red wine since it's best served at room temp....It helps taking pictures in 145 mph winds to be drunk. (See drunk pics here taken in 145 mph winds as Charlie passed by).


WEATHER

It has been extremely great weather, the day time highs are 88* and the pool and gulf temp is 81*. The morning lows have been about 68*. Every day there has been a great breeze and the real humidity hasn't gotten here yet but it's coming.

PERSONAL

I get to see the oncologist tomorrow we are discussing the interferon treatments. It's always fun seeing her because I feel like I tell her what to do rather than her being aggressive in my treatment plan. Managed health care... I have to manage my health because they don't care except to get paid.

Monday I have a follow up visit with my brain surgeon. I'm sure he will be a bundle of good news probably say well I just don't know let's get another MRI and MRA ($7,000 or a new bike), I'll have a headache from the dye and them well make a decision.

J had some surgery so I had to pick her up from the hospital. I told her to do what I do when I have surgery and take a taxi home but I thought better of it. So I didn't get home until 8 last night and no gym time. So ....

Today was a run day. I was a little tired this morning fortunately I scheduled an easy run of 5 miles, so I did my golf course loop and ran the golf course. I'm swimming on the way home, it if doesn't rain I think I'll stop at Laudermilk Park and swim in the gulf.

I can see where the red wine comes in handy with the hurricanes you've had. Good luck with the oncologist tomorrow...

Sounds like you have the hurricane thing down to a science! Good luck tomorrow, keep us posted on what YOU decide based on all this medical advice, or non-advice, as the case may be... !!

I lived on guam and dealt with typhoons and earthquakes (supertyphoon Omar and a 8.3 earthquake were the highpoints) I got by on beanie weanies and a water purifier for six weeks when we had no water and no electricity

Wow, I have to say that I'm jealous of your hurricanes - but I'm weird attracted to thunderstorms and oceans, so there you go.

Keep a positive attitude for the doc's appt, and way to get that run in!
