    I personally think it's the "jumbo" a day because everybody tells me I eat little compared to the Dominican guys. Also, when I go back to the States for work every so often I pick up a couple of pounds from eating all of the junk over there - it's no wonder we Americans are becoming obese with the portions they serve - I rarely finish what they give me. It could be too that I'm not a spring chicken at 42, haha but I'm a fighting it, I go to the gym twice a week but maybe 4 times a week would be better!

    I only had a slight problem when I was at the Supermecado Nacional and the head of security told me I couldn't shoot photos. For all you out there that think the DR is racist - they are not mostly - just classisits! I'm as white as I come and I was in a nice long sleeve shirt and jeans but made the fatal mistake of going out in the motoi' - hence the knee jerk reaction to stop me. He said no pictures are allowed where I responded "hey this is a free country isn't it?" and he say "not in this parking lot" I then responded, "Hey I was just taking a couple of photos as recuerdos for some friends". Stiill he said it is not permissible. Finally I sadi "Hey look bud, I do most of my shopping here and it ain't peanuts, would like you like to guess how much I spend on a weekly basis?" Whereupon he finally softens up and says I can talk with the manager and he's sure that he will let me take the photos.

    If they only would run the damn country the way they do their supermarkets(with respect to following the law) things would get better, oh well.
