    Well Im Back

    Well I got back form St Thomas USVI late last night and Im worn out and hungry. But I have some new members to my family. My youngest son got married this week on the Island and now I have a new Daughter-in-law and a new granddaughter and I think I am 10# lighter as I couldn't afford to eat and all I did was sweat.

    If ever you get a chance to go there be warned it is the most expensive and poorest food I ever seen $42.00 for a buffet and a McD's Big Mac would cost over $22.00 after paying the cab ride to go get it and not only that they drive on the wrong side of the road

    Welcome back Jay. Food costs aside it looks like a great place and you certainly seem happy with the new little addition. Keep Grandpa young.
    cheers

    Congrats Jay on the new family members! The new granddaughter is a cutie!

    Food can be expensive elsewhere in the world. On January 1, 2009 in Auckland, NZ I paid $78 for a breakfast buffet for the LOML and I. It was not exceptionally fancy by US standards either....just your average breakfast buffet.

    I don't know about the VI's, but in Trinidad, McDonalds is considered a fine restaurant ... foods is some cheaper ... a Mig Mac was only about US$7 or 8... drink and fries were extra.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
