government

“The people want to go out,” that is what Wendy has told me. This was in response to a comment I made about the amount of bookings I have taken for The Playa for the month of July. The government of the Dominican Republic entered Phase 3 which allowed restaurants and hotels to re-open on […]

Phased Out

,

I think I’m having a reaction to Phase 3. I might just be having a reaction to what appears to be happening in Phase 2 and therefore I am applying it to Phase 3 but I’m definitely having some kind of a reaction. Our area, relative to the rest of the world, has seen little […]

Just A Theory

A theory is an idea. It stops being a theory once it has been proven or disproven. Developing a theory is not all that hard, any idiot can come up with a theory, my neighbour does it all the time. I dread the day when some scientist describes some medical discovery as a ‘disinfectant for […]

Just Norm

My province has been set free! Well… sort of free. The Health regulations that have been put in place to protect us from ourselves, are being ever so slightly relaxed in my region. Canada is still struggling in some regions and they have not been set free like me yet, but across the country a […]

Even More Delays

That’s right… go back 2 posts for the start of this saga 😉 Part 3- The Deep-End We’re on schedule, go figure. Even though we have been a part of many delays around us, Honey and I are not really late. According to the big board at Pearson International airport in Toronto, we are on-time […]

Am I The Only One That...

Am I the only one that thinks the American’s are resembling the Three Stooges more and more every day? Their three levels of government are the Larry, Moe and Curly of the modern world. The leader is a bizarre mix of P.T. Barnum, the self-promoter who figured that you didn’t have to fool them all, […]

My 'X' Got Me What?

If you were to take four ordinary citizens and put them in one of those ‘Escape Rooms’ that have become all the rage, they would work together and get out of the room, then head to the bar to celebrate their success. If I were to put four politicians into the same predicament, they would […]
