Registered to vote

There has been a lot of stink about transients like me registering to vote. Clay county FL refused to let me vote even though I have a FL Drivers License and an FL address cause my address wasn't good enough!!! Chris Parker has raised a stink about this and I hope my mail service, they provide mail for thousands of use sailing, will raising a stink too. Two years ago Clay County refused to let me vote. I just registered online and I will see in the next couple of weeks if they well accept it. If not, then "taxation without representation" and I will demand the IRS return my tax payments and I will refuse to pay taxed in the future until I'm allowed to vote. I'll use Clay county's rejection of my right to vote as evidence for the IRS.
For those of us living on boat the "physical address" requirement is a pain in the ass. Most place refuse to recognize a US flagged vessel with USGG/Homeland Security documentation as a legitimate address. My boat is US territory and that is where I live. After you talk to a few managers they seem to adjust their thinking…. All the same, the web pages refuse to accept a US flagged vessel and USCG documentation number as a physical address and none of them like my PO Box.

Drinking and smoking some herb

After being in the islands for over a year I finally purchased a pipe for herb… She is blown glass and really nice looking new… we will see what she looks like after a few bowls….. But as the sign at NIMROD's says — better to cook with herbs, I'm not following their recomendation. iPod tunes are playing and we can see the big dipper, the southern cross and what looks like Mars rising over the East. Scorpio is fully vissible. There is a Hurricane out there tonight, but she is far away from us and projected to go north Today. i made a micro-loan and hope it will pay off in more good Karma. I've had some really good karma for the past two years. :)


Hurricane BERYL in the Trop Atl

The first of the 2018 season. They are calling for it to go North of us. If your are between Martinique and St. Kitts you will be impacted. Otherwise we are expecting waves to be a bit higher than normal.

Back on-line

Both the Cell Phone and the Laptop fell ill last week, they are 9 and 10 years old and have been on a boat since I purchased them. Neither would restart and when I opened them up to see, they were both full of corrosion. The battery on the cell phone was also swollen. I salvaged the SIM cards, memory and disk and began the hunt for replacement devices. Finally go a new phone on Friday and a Laptop this weekend. Today I managed to get all my data restored (Yeh). I haven't totaled the bill but it is over $6000 EC. Hopefully this new pair will last 9 or 10 years.

Tick Infestation and the lies of the pet industry

The products sold to you by the pet industry do not work… I have had a tick infestation for over 4 months and the ticks love to hand out on my dogs under their Suresto collars and we have moved through may different versions of ADVANTIX (plus etc) none of the crap works. These things are supposed to kill ticks and fees yet every day I pull 30 or more live ticks off of my dogs, most of them feeding in the dogs ears or under their tick collars. Nothing made by these companies appear to work. I have twice sprayed my boat tight SVERN and then cleaned up several days later so we would not die from the pesticide… I have tick spray that I use on the dog every week and we have tick shampoo that is used every two weeks. None of this crap works! I have spread diatom and borax all over the living space hoping that diatomaceous earth will kill these buggers without killing us.
