skiing Sunshine & Louise

It’s been quite a few years since I last skied. But I finally got around to buying new equipment. (My old stuff was from – perhaps – 1979.)

I warmed up at Sunshine day 1 skiing with Henry and friends. Mostly Greens & Blues.

Next two days I joined up with the Longs and friends for Louise and Sunshine.

I finally bought new skis. Wish me luck.

It’s going to be a little cold.


Sunshine Village ski runs and lifts are accessed via an eight-person high-speed gondola. The gondola takes people from the parking lot (or bus terminal) to Goat’s Eye mountain in 10 minutes and to the upper Village area in 18 minutes. …

all-inclusive Resort BEACH BODY

At the El Cid Resort Mazatlan we could eat whatever we wanted at 12 different restaurants. Cost US$46 / day.

The goal is to eat and drink yourself to death.


I did enjoy my 3 glasses of red wine each day – a nice tipple from Spain.

St David’s centipede, Bermuda

Biggest danger on land in Bermuda.

We found this one in the Gym Office in St David’s.


Often called the St David’s centipede because of the high number of the arthropods to be found in the East End, this species can attain a formidable length of a foot or more — making them more feared than loved. …

brilliant – the Hippo Roller

The Hippo Water Roller was developed in 1991 by two South Africans in response to the daily struggle of rural women and children across Africa to access safe, drinkable water.
