Wow I haven't heard it's Bush's fault in a long time. So now he is responsible for the deaths in the DR. A new low even for you.

And how long has it been this way? Pretty much Forever...but I think it took a nasty Upswing, directly after George W Bush invaded Iraq. Definitely since 2003.

Any American traveling abroad is currently At Risk, and would do well to always Be Part Of A Group, or be Young & Able, with a couple of companions with you at all times. Unless you are visiting some place like Ireland, Australia, Germany or the Nordic countries - countries full of Happy People who have jobs and money of their own...

....you'll be viewed as a Naked Fat Man, plastered with $100-dollar bills, at best. At worst, you'll be viewed as a sexual Pervert who's looking for child prostitutes (Thailand, Central America, etc.). Most Americans are unaware of the degree of Grinding Poverty that exists, even in the Western Hemisphere. In the DR, most people have jobs, but in neighboring Haiti the Poverty & desperation are unspeakable. They way they view Americans...if they can knock one of us out or drug us, the contents of our pockets will set them up for the next 6 months...any one of us.

Before I'm accused of some type of Bigotry, it's not a Black Vs. White thing, but a MONEY thing. We've got the money to travel...they don't. Just as we view ALL of them as Poor, they view ALL of us as Easy Marks. Those of us who would drink from an open container in such locales are ridiculously easy.

I had a coworker vacation at the Dominican Republic maybe 6 years ago. She said she would never go back for various reasons. The main reason was she didn't really feel that safe and it was not a very clean place. Kind of like Holloway missing in Aruba (that had to drive away a few US tourists), I would think these people who have suddenly died over in the D.R. would cause substantially fewer Americans to go there. I think almost all of the people who died had some alcohol either from their room or the hotel shortly before their death. Poison/bad alcohol?

82%, oh don't eat cat!! I know you were teasing. Sorry, but I am going to ask you to Google UberAir in Dallas, because all I can find again/now are articles from 2017 (I can't believe it's 2019 and basically halfway over!)

They are without a doubt the worst donuts I have ever eaten. It seems to be the general consciences. But you are on the top of Pike's Peak. What are you going to do? Too bad the Cog Train is no more. Cool, I just read it is coming back in 2021.

Never had those. The Pearl City Foodland has some pretty great store- made donuts, especially the jelly-filled ones.

There are also some fairly good BBQ places in Elgin. That is between Brenham and Austin where 290 intersects with 95. But the best BBQ in that "area" is the Taylor Cafe in believe it or not Taylor, TX. When my wifes mother was a teen she used to work there.

/m30704 I quit KFC for Popeye's. Luv that spice. Don't go very often. It has gotten pricey. I usually get the three piece white meat with one side and drink. They give you two wings and a breast. But they also have a 3 wing basket for the same price. This perplexed me so I asked the manager about it. He told me it is because wings cost the same as breasts. So I asked to change my order to three breasts since it is the same cost. He sadly advised me he could not accommodate me. Methinks he did not have a clue, does not set prices, and said the first thing that came to mind thinking I would accept his answer. I got a chuckle out of it.

/m30708 Yes, my Reaction begins with a headache...if the Dosage is high enough, it progresses to a feeling that Blackout is imminent (grey wool at corners of vision), along with a vague Nausea and urge to vomit. Few others ever have this sensation, but I do. I mentioned it to a Doctor once....he said: "That's why I don't eat out....". And these days, KIDS run the fast-food joints. They will Lay On with such ingredients, without regard for the consequences to anyone. "Beavis & Butthead" are in charge....
