View from the hotel window on the day of arrival.
I’m probably not going to be on top of this blog in the way I usually am for the next few days because I’m on a golf outing with a bunch of guys in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. The schedule is pretty demanding: golf every day, all day, followed by the consumption of copious amounts of firewater of one form or another. MD stayed home. MD is smart. She wants no part of this. Her sister came to visit to keep her company.
The hotel where we’re all staying–The Westin–just got its high speed internet fixed, so I’m finally on after two days. Here it is 11:15 PM and I’ve got internet. And, believe it or not, I’m relatively sober.
I probably won’t be able to get to all the comments until tomorrow, so don’t feel dissed if you’ve commented and it hasn’t shown up yet. Also, if I don’t get to it, re-comment. You might have gotten deleted with the 512 spams that I had. I hope there is a special place in Hell for spammers. It would be easy just to delete them all, but real comments somehow find their way into the spam. It’s no big deal for me to go through them when I’m at home because I check frequently and there are 25 or 30. Now that I haven’t been able to check for over two days, 512 have stacked up. I went through them and found a couple that I transferred over to the regular comments file, but I may have missed one or two.
I’m desperately trying to maintain low-carb vigilance, but it’s tough in Mexico. I’m doing the best I can. Tonight we had dinner in a great place (the name of which I can’t remember, but I’ll let you know soon. I would ask my roommate, who comes here often, but is out stone cold, snoring. He was a competitor in the margarita drinking contest and will pay for it dearly manana.) One of the specialties was a platter for two for about $45. It came with four lobster halves, 8 butterflied shrimp, and a large New York Steak. It typically comes with potatoes and rice, but we got them to substitute a bunch of vegetables, all of which were excellent. So, low-carb can indeed be done.
As long as I’ve got internet, I’ll continue to post from south of the border. If I disappear, you’ll know what happened. I’ll be back at my post late Sunday afternoon.
Oh, one other thing. My tech guy upgraded WordPress (the software for this blog), and I’ve discovered that sometimes it comes out as dark blue with dark gray lettering, making it difficult to read. I’ve contacted my guy, and he’s going to fix it. But until then, if you’ll hit the ‘Refresh’ button on your browser, you should solve the problem. It may take a couple of ‘refreshes,’ however, to get it back to normal. Sorry for the inconvenience.
