    Ours is in mid July and we have 0 chance of a refund. I thought it would be neat to go down and volunteer but when I called the resort today they told me you had to have special training to volunteer and thank you very much thats so sweet of you but we don t need anymore volunteers. I found a website with daily updates and it looks like it s kind of hit or miss if the beaches are open.

    Anyone else have one scheduled? Are you going or staying? Anyone live down there?

    We usually take a beach vacation some place in California, but they are boycotting us Zonies now. So I guess we will have to try Padre Island. Hopefully, the tar balls and oil will be carried east by the wind and currents.

    PS I wish I had an oil well that produced 50,000 barrels of oil a day. That is a doozy of a well, to bad it is in the bottom of the ocean.

    I have been to Michigan. It is absolutely beautiful. To bad about the mosquitoes though. They just love our Mexican blood. I saw other people walking around and not being bitten. I can't figure out their secret.

    The Fillipinos used to say that if you ate bananas the mosquitoes would attack you. I stopped eating bananas, but they still came after me.
