I'd rather sit in the dark.

No question he's a prize idiot.

Would I tolerate him and his rhetoric if he were Joe Bloggs down the pub? No, I'd send him packing in no uncertain manner which is what we should do with him now.

Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

He prefers pageantry to damaging the world, the Queen is just distracting him like a stupid dog.

She is saving the world smokester. A tourist attraction is saving the world.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

Should I hate or love him, who knows.
certainly brightened up the political scene

It's pretty obvious he doesn't give a crap about the royals and really doesn't care who is offended by his stance. OTOH, the queen enthusiastically served him  ;D

I got back from St Lucia on Wednesday evening after 16 days in the Caribbean. Should have been less but on Monday St Lucia had a mandatory shut down as Dorian hit the island and our flight was cancelled.

It wasn't that bad and we had a nice evening in a lovely hotel courtesy of our airline and we kinda took liberties with the wine menu as food should be thrown in to the expense.

Looking at Dorian now it is no laughing matter so I wish any of us that might be affected over the pond the very best of luck.

Haven’t you got work to do?

I'm so over work.

I signed up to a course today to become a qualified electrician up to the level of commercial installations. The plan was to start right away but they couldn't fit me in until the end of October. This means I'll have to activate at least one large contract to keep me busy so yeah, you're right.

I'm going to take at least another week off though.

In FL after a week in SXM during which the edges of Dorian, then still a teenager, knocked out the electricity and dumped a bunch of rain on the island. I'd never seen so much thunder and lightning on the island before.  Glad you got out, smokes, with relatively little inconvenience.  We will leave early next week and expect a bumpy ride out but for now seem to have dodged the major impact of landfall.

Bag your electronics if you're in hurricane town, I'm still mad about my PSP.

You could finish your web site!

The boy (who codes for monies now) wants to redo it all dynamically.

I might just let him.

I had to high tail it out of FL on the last flight before they closed the airport for the foreseeable future.  I was exhausted all day yesterday and am just now coming to life.  Dorian is big and weird.  What its done to the Bahamas is terribly sad.  And it's far from done.

at least you didn't have to hear calls like Laura Roslin did. :P

Ahhh. He's all growed up.

He just turned 17 and his midway through his A-levels.

He scripts in any language and is computer science teacher called him nothing short of a genius at the subject.

I told him not to say such things to his face.

On topic: we are not sure whether to go to the Caribbean next year as he'll turn 18 and might be better off with his friends. I've explained how sometimes best laid plans can become a damp squib, whereas, guaranteed jet-skiing and helicopter rides would be memorable.

And legally drinking beer!

See - I told you that your parenting skills were adequate.

I have another one so don't count my chickens just yet.
