1st-World Nonsense

Sometimes, you need to take a step back so that you can see the broader picture. Gain a new perspective and not be so narrow in your thinking. Pause, take a deep breath and see things for what they are. A case in point would be the notice Honey found taped to our back door […]

Solo Focus

A solo focus. This I believe has become the downfall for a vast majority of people. They see it one way and one way only, there is no variation to their focus. No matter what anyone says, they see it their way only. Do you know someone like that? They are the ones that you […]

There are two different entities at ‘The Playa’, or at least in my head there are. There is a restaurant business and there is a hotel/cabana/cottage/bed on the beach/ or however you wish to describe it, business.

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 […]

The one thing about a ‘global pandemic’, is that it is global. Almost every country, on every continent, has been drastically changed by COVID-19. Even the few countries that chose to ignore the whole flu-thing were effectively quarantined by their neighboring countries. So, no country got away scot-free. This of course, includes the Dominican Republic. […]
