Setting my watch for island time

OK. My plans are set. Merrin and I have decided that we're headed back to Guana, population not very many. The plan is to fly out to the Florida coast and then puddle jump to the islands just after the Jimmy Buffett concert and spend a week at her Dad's island house.

We haven't been since we got engaged there in 1999. Once we're there, we'll probably snorkle, drink, eat, and sleep. Maybe in that order, maybe not.

Josh from logistics is going to help me pick up my new bed tomorrow. No word yet on donuts, as that is up in the air since Krispy Kreme stopped giving away free samples. Maybe we'll find some Southern Maid, but I would really like to know where there's a Dunkin Donuts around here! I guess I could settle for a year's worth of free coffee.

The politicians are calling it The Conscientious Objector Policy Act . Under the proposal, doctors who refuse to reat patients for moral reasons would be beyond question from their employer and exempt from legal responsibility. I'm calling it the Doctors Can Discriminate Act.
