Rick, Both. I'm into my 2nd week of a shutdown at the evil empire and it's looking like it could be another 3-4 weeks before they start backup again. no worries, i'll find something in the mean time.

Actually I'm thinking of defecting from the Evil Empire and joining the
rebel alliance. I'll help destroy the death star before it's competed.
saving Cruz Bay from it's death ray and running off with Princess Layla.
I've drank way too much Haitian blue voodoo coffee

Up at 5AM and looking for work? Or is that, still up after closing down the Front Yard? You continue to be my idol.

Ok I was really out of it for a while. I looked at the date but not the year. I thought I had been in a comma when one of the replys was Dated April 6th.

Almost plausible, at 6% interest on a $32M note that's only $200K per month for the payment.

You would have had me but I saw this about the Stimulus Bill the other day: Approved earmarks for the territory include:
- $2.25 million for land acquisition for the acquisition of Maho Bay by the Virgin Islands National Park

The $2.25 Million is for acquiring the land behind big Maho Beach , the hillside and valley, from the Marsh family heirs it has nothing to do at all with the Campground property.
