what's the difference between the 2 blogs? The original
blog (linked above) is updated daily and is all about the weather and
island life on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands with useful links
related to the Virgin Islands. It often is comical.
The General Blog (below) is things
unrelated to island life
weather. It is updated erratically, but often brings light to
strange happenings in our
brave odd world.
Some but not all links

FINALLY, a book I can identify with!
A Perfect Mess: The Hidden Benefits of
Disorder--How Crammed Closets, Cluttered Offices, and On-the-Fly
Planning Make the World a Better Place
In their book Mr. Freedman and Mr.
Abrahamson describe the properties of mess in loving terms. Mess has
resonance, they write, which means it can vibrate beyond its own
confines and connect to the larger world. It was the overall scumminess
of Alexander Fleming’s laboratory that led to his discovery
of penicillin, from a moldy bloom in a petri dish he had forgotten on
remark, “If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind,
of what, then, is an empty desk?”

I used to work on a cruise ship and they are never cleaned properly.
The crew is overworked, the turnaround times are so short that nothing
gets cleaned properly. Despite the continual illnesses aboard
cruise ships, they have done nothing to increase their staff and
sanitary conditions. If you think the passenger area is bad, you should
see the crew quarters, which often resemble floating slums!
I know, I worked aboard one, and I was appalled.

In honor of World AIDS Day on Friday, December 1st, Bristol-Myers
Squibb, the pharmaceutical monolith (that charges nearly $1000 for a
30-day supply of one of its HIV/AIDS medications), is donating $1 to
the National AIDS Fund for each person who simply visits their website
and "virtually lights a candle."
Please, please take a minute to "light a candle":

LOST AND FOUND: Are you missing this cat? Cause he
left the country without you! Bet he was chasing down a rat
or mice when OOOPS! Poor Kitty!
JUSTICE? Have the cops gone mad? Are you
not safe in your car or home anymore?
dealing drugs or was she merely defending her home? These
cops didn't bother to wear uniforms! Just busted down her
door! Seems the police may have gotten the WRONG address.
I mean if you were sound asleep and someone busted down your
door in plain clothes, wouldn't you think it was the boogie men come to
harm you? I give this Granny the Spectacular Death of the
Year Award. Who would have thought that in America, you could
be gunned down IN YOUR OWN HOME at the ripe old age of 92? At
least she hit all three of the cops and I give her an A plus for
marksmanship. Shame the cops survived and Granny didn't.
I think Roseanne Barr summed it up nicely when she said "This war on
drugs is about rich people and their prescriptions warring on poor
people and their street drugs!"
