New Car If You Quit Smoking

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

This takes smoking to a whole new level. Have you ever seen a youngster who is clearly too young to be smoking? Sometimes you see them walking down the street and holding a cigarette that looks surprisingly large in such small hands and you can’t help but think it’s out of place. Well that’s nothing […]

Namosi Road

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

This video should probably be two videos because they are different subjects and they are just kind of glued together. The first part is the result of a run-in a beautiful bird had with the glass doors on the ocean side of our home. Things quickly went from bad to worse as our two cats […]

Landslide Excavation

Saturday, May 24th, 2008

Tropical Excitement comes in all forms. The latest for us was a small landslide after sustained moisture.

As boring as the weather is to talk about — if you are thinking of migrating somewhere — the weather can become extremely important even in the tropics. For example in a tropical country it can make the difference of thousands of dollars per year, tens or hundreds of thousands in property cost, and have a major impact on your […]

Saturday, March 1st, 2008

There are several reasons why living in the tropics can be considered less than perfect but I can’t remember any of them. Looking out my 16 foot glass doors at a pristine rain forest backdropped with the Pacific Ocean and a designer island sitting just a mile offshore I just find it a little too distracting to think of things like “drawbacks”. However for those who insist […]
