    I've had no problems refilling through Costco for delivery to EPS Miami and further delivery to Sosua. It's much less expensive than buying here.

    You're free to go

    One day in the future, OJ Simpson has a heart-attack and dies. He immediately goes to hell, where the devil is waiting for him. 'I don't know what to do here,' says the devil.

    Makita tools

    I've looked without success to find a Makita dealer in DR. More specifically, I want a LS1013FL Miter Saw and a 2704 Table Saw. Being a guy I could easily be persuaded to buy more. Prefer the north side of DR but "have truck, will travel". TIA

    Dining in Cabarete

    Five of us went to the Grill 15 Steakhouse in Cabarete this evening. All you can eat steak for US$15.00 plus chicken prepared several ways. No complaints, only praise.

    terms of the deal

    Guy walks into a Dominican bar and notices the best looking woman there is obviously not a player (she's probably from Santiago). But this is DR so it never hurts to ask. He asks if she will have sex with him all night his way for $100. She says of course not. She's a real looker so he asks...
