    Man, monkey and dog.

    Just had one horrendous tropical downpour. Five minutes of wind and thunderous rain that seemed to be bouncing off the road about a foot. All hell broke lose for a few minutes and then nothing. Now calm and cool. Most of the roads are flooded as the drains can't cope with this kind of input but the air is a lot cooler. Just as the rain stopped I realised I'd missed a great photo opp.

    Been trying to get someone to collect a parcel to send to the UK. DHL, Fed EX - load of crap. Fed Ex turned-up and after a great deal of arguing told them to sling their hook - increased the price when they got here and were less than apologetic. Finally it's gone with UPS. First rate service.

    The daughter's had a school friend here this afternoon and between them they've managed to wreck the house. Good to see them having fun though. New school term and new season of kids' parties. Can't help feeling that there is a lot of snobbery and competitiveness involved. Who has the most guests, biggest bouncy castle, best circus act, most exepensive whatever! Etc etc etc. The daughter's b'day is in the summer, out of term time. This leaves us with dilema, to party or not.

    Here's a picture of a man, a dog, and a monkey taking a stroll in the sea. No reason for it just something we saw on an island.

    Here's something I found in my mailbox:

    A Short Story

    "A son and his father went for a walk in the mountains.Suddenly, the son falls, hurts himself and screams: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh! !!"
    To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh! !!"

    Curious, he yells: "Who are you?"He receives the answer: "Who are you?"
    And then he screams to the mountain: "I admire you!" The voice answers: "I admire you!"
    Angered at the response, he screams: "Copycat ... Coward!"He receives the answer: "Copycat ... Coward!"
    He looks to his father and asks: "What's going on Dad?"The father smiles and says: "My son, pay attention."
    The father screams: "You are a champion!"The voice answers: "You are a champion!"
    The boy is surprised, but does not understand. Then the father explains: "People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE.It gives you back everything you say or do.Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.
    If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart. If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence.This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life;Life will give you back everything you have given to it."
