    Hello...

    With all due respect for those in pain - I imagine they will have a go at us over these next few weeks - so - for those who have lost someone...

    This is a bit edgy - but I am tired of things...

    I have no claim - but I can say a prayer of thanks for those who make my life safe - to a lost cousin...

    See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibiVBUooDFY&feature=related ...

    These men are not trained to be baby sitters or police - they are trained to kill and infiltrate - the later is up to their government - at home - currently the Bush 'ah bah bah bah'...

    About as good as 'ah bah bah bah' - utter failure - for the working soldier - lots of oil soaked monies for the those who look down on us from the Penthouses ...

    All I can offer is my thanks to the families involved in same - serious - thank you for your loss...

    This is little or nothing really - from me - I hope you are doing the best you can - please carry on...

    SH.

    Heart felt Sean, well said buddy, of course they are doing their best, always did always will! No matter who's marines they are, once a marine always a marine! Yours ours or anybody elses! And don't forget the rest of the grunts out there, putting their lives on the line for us (and the great unwashed wether they want it or not). And the same goes for those who went before, thankee guys, great to have known a few and served with a few of 'ee

    Yes, it's that time of the year again. 2008 flew past at the speed of light, can't help thinking I'm missing out on something :D - maybe just the start and end of it ;)

    Somewhere in all the rite marole I met a few nice guys also adicted to water (ok, in a dry kind of way). Means a lot to be able to just phone and you can talk to someone with a similar interest - Manie, Butch, Wynand (in alphabetic order :D)

    A lot happened in this old year, and I have plans to make more happen in 2009 wrt boating. Can't wait.

    Already talking too much crap again, so season's greetings, have a spirited and motivated time, rest up, post up, be healthy and wealthy and may we all get the wisdom to stay afloat forever.

    And if I could add, may Frosty not disappear once in 2009 :D

    Sean,

    you make a very good point. The world is not a fair or just place. Many solders die and it seems the global administrations count the cost in black gold - or electoral victory. It will be interesting to see what actually changes after the inauguration in January.

    So this morning is a sunny Christmas day in UK. Have a cool yule and don't forgot those resolutions!
