We've only been there twice and both times I felt cheated when I had to leave the island in the evening, so this time we plan to spend a couple of nights over there. I want to get up really early and walk aroud while things are still pretty quiet and before those pesky tourists show up.
Maybe we will try it in September.
This is more of a pet peeve but figure I'd post it here instead. Gas in my area is suddenly at 2.90 a gallon when it was just 2.69 last week. It really irks me because I have only a quarter of a tank left and trying to decide - do I wait to see if it goes down or take the risk that it will go up even more?
I would welcome 2.90 a gallon. It is now 3.14 a gallon here. Greedy bastids.
Time for me to vent...
We had our new washing machine delivered and installed today. Since my husband is away on business, we paid extra for installation. Well I was so excited to get my first load in the new HE washing machine!!!! So, I load it up, and head upstairs. 40 minutes later I go to the basement to put iin the next load and all the water had drained onto the floor. The idiots who installed the drain hose didn't put the clamp around it, the hose popped off, and the water flooded my basement floor. Fortunately there is no carpet, just a nasty mess. I am not a happy girl with Best Buy at this moment.

I think someone needs to refund the installation charge, if not be charged for clean-up, as well.
I would definitely call Best Buy and tell them you want your installation fee refunded.
All that aside, I hope you like your new appliance. I'm really wanting a new refrigerator. Mine is on the way to breaking but not broke yet. Wrench anyone?

Ana - good luck dealing with Best Buy. We bought a washer, dryer and fridge from them when we moved into our new house. The guys who installed it didn't install the dryer correctly and they also did something to the icemaker/water line on the fridge that caused our entire kitchen to be flooded. We called them several times, got no response and finally ended up going to the store. The store manager informed us that he would send someone in "about a week" to fix this and if we wanted our delivery/installation fee back, we would have to call Best Buy's customer service line. The fridge got fixed by Best Buy. The dryer got fixed by one of our nice new neighbors. It took more than three months of dealing with customer service before I finally got HALF of the delivery/installation fee back. I haven't shopped there since then.

I was grocerie shopping yesterday and I did my homework regarding Peanut Butter. Here's the deal: Regular peanut butter has peanuts, oil, some preservatives, sugar and salt. 100% natural PB contains: (roasted) PEANUTS. Which doesn't mean it doesn't have sugar. Apparently peanuts naturally contain sugar.
