Re: crazy biker

Being a Parrothead, a rider, and a full-time RV'er I can honestly say that the stopping distance of most RV's should be measured with a calendar.

With that said, this poor schmuck's actions are roughly equivalent to sticking your hand into a meat grinder because you don't like the butcher. :-?

A modest suggestion re: MOTM

This year's MOTM seems to have generated pretty much negative reviews, judging by the emails and the discussions on the various boards. Jimmy didn't show, the Reefers couldn't come, attendance was down, the Casa sucks these days, the Keys aren't fun any more, the dog ate someone's homework, etc., et...

could just crate him up between performances, let him out in time to void the bladder/bowels, wash and get on stage, then crate him again until it's showtime. :D Sadly, Greg's not the first performer to have a bit of a "substance enthusiasm" problem. I wonder if there is a market for converting use...

"did you get a chance to talk to Fingers about his plans for the summer?" From the looks of it....Greg will probably not be on stage with Jimmy. Matter of fact I am very upset with him and p*** off at him. Greg will not be asked back to Stars. Someone kept buying him drinks....he got DRUNK...he was...

No, he's 64 I think. Not much older than some guy named Jimmy Buffett.

Both of whom may be on the way to proving that alcohol is, indeed, a pretty good preservative 8)

Our recent trip to New Orleans and Bay St. Louis, Mississipp

I thought that I would share some of our photos of our Turkey Day trip to Bay St. Louis, Mississippi and New Orleans with y'all. Some of it is very lighthearted and typically Pirateesque -- bars, casinos, and general fun and mayhem. And some of it is very, very dark. With the exception of the casino...

Photos!

Here are some of my photos. Long on the Keys, and relatively short on MOTM. We were mostly shooting stuff for an upcoming book, but some of it will no doubt appear in a revised Keys Guide -- http://www.fototime.com/inv/9B0620538A71A7E and http://www.fototime.com/inv/92D05D18637717E --PirateJohn--

The Lime and Mango of Margaritaville are great in a margarita. The tequila itself is actually gut rot. Cuervo Lime isn't as good as M'ville. When we were at Cheeseburger in Paradise in Myrtle Beach a few weeks ago they were pushing Mango Margaritaville Tequila pretty hard. Really hard. They were gi...

Re: Big Bad John - the hurricane, that is

Good luck in Raleigh. In about 1997 or so I helped run the ice handouts for the Red Cross Triangle Area Chapter for several days. Wilmington had been hit (was that Hurricane Fran? My memory is a bit foggy and the plaque is at home so I cannot look it up) but folks down there were prepared. Raleigh,...

Big Bad John - the hurricane, that is

Now that Ernesto has been a bit of an underachiever, let's not forget that Hurricane John is off the western coast of Mexico and is currently hovering somewhere between a Cat. 3 and a Cat. 4. It looks like it's going to glance off of the southern tip of Baja, where there are scads of gringos and oth...

I'm not familiar with this guy but I've got to say that shooting a caged, tame bear strikes me as being about as loathsome as shooting your neighbor's harmless pet. Pretty disgusting.
