It's closer!

Okay, so if it ain't the start of the baseball season, it's got to be vacation!

Mike Landi

So? Where are you going this year?

Mike Landi
March 16th, 2006, 10:31 AM
So? Where are you going this year?

Here and there. Florida to see my mother. The Great Cathedral in the Bronx in mid-July (White Sox game). Would you believe Wildwood Crest later in August? <g>

...just checking...


yep...


It's coming, it's closer...... :eek:

Mike, I believe you--we stay down there when we go to Cape May--usually after Labor Day when it's less crowded and motel prices go down--you can still catch great weather and the hawk counts take place for the birdwatchers. Regards, Len

That was the look on my face when I turned forty and had to start hearing fun words like "Cholesterol" from doctors.

Mike,

It's comin' and no thanks to World Baseball. (Johnny now has tendenitis in his already weak throwing arm thanks to doing this "thing" during Spring Training.)

The good news is the U.S. lost and the players can come home and get healthy.

Mike Landi
March 17th, 2006, 10:39 PM

I don't want to know what that has in store for me!

F#$@! this 'classic'. I 100% agree with the Boss Nut.

No good, worth zip. Nothing but an opportunity for good players to get hurt.

Mike, I'm sure you can--all those Victoriana houses that have been converted to snazzy looking bed and breakfasts in Cape May. Maybe you'll make it up to Atlantic City and see Lucy the elephant--http://www.lucytheelephant.org/indexhi.html ! Regards, Len [g]

Born on St. Joseph’s Day, huh? Probably auspicious. Not only is he the patron saint against doubt and hesitation but of confectioners, a field I know is close to your heart!

Happy Birthday!

On April 5, I'm flying from LAX to Ft. Lauderdale. The next morning I get aboard the RSSC Navigator and head for Canaveral, Savannah, Charleston, Bermuda, Nassau, back to Lauderdale and 3 days later head across the Atlantic to Madeira, Casablance, Malaga, Barcelona, Carcasonne, and end up in Monte Carlo. Then fly home from Nice via London.
Then on June 22 I join my son's choral on a trip to Vienna, Salzburg and fly home from Venice.
Then I just sit around the house until late August when I visit the Inland Passage in Alaska.

To say it surely extended my birthday celebration in a BIG way would be a BIG understatement! Even when your brain tells you it's exceedingly unlikely to be any kind of a problem, your gut rarely agrees...

The real problem is that it's just too damned big an organization to be manageable, and the guy at the top has virtually NO management experience. Talk about a baaaaaaad mix...

Mike Landi
March 22nd, 2006, 05:00 PM
The real problem is that it's just too damned big an organization to be manageable,

Amen, sister, amen. Too big, too many levels of bureaucracy, too much under one roof.


...and too important a responsibility for bureaucrats.

Judy G. Russell
March 22nd, 2006, 05:14 PM
I understand all too well the difficulties and dangers of having responsibility spread too thin. I remember sitting at a meeting of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force that I directed, telling representatives of a bunch of different law enforcement agencies that they were all acting like turf-protective two-year-olds ("mine!" "no, mine!"). But there has to be something better, somewhere between total turf-protection and total "everything under one roof".

Mike Landi
March 22nd, 2006, 09:36 PM
there has to be something better, somewhere between total turf-protection and total "everything under one roof".

There is, but to get there, America will have to accept either military control over travel and trade (a bad idea) or accept more intrusions into their personal business (as in searcing all packages, containers, luggage, and shipments) which is contrary to the expectations that most of us have.

Absent those two, the only solution is a big dog and pony show with the hope that the bad guys remain dumb and unlucky. Not a great choice....
