Great idea

Nice job Jazz, now I barely believe most of the stuff I've heard about you.

Your email came back with permanent errors.

Whatever you think/want that's appropriate off my
site
is yours.

Doesn't make any sense to mat/frame here, but I'll do
the printing (8x10/5x7), and mail them to a Miami PO. The rest is
up to you - per matting/framing.

Certainly not offended if this isn't the avenue you're
interested in, but I thought I'd at least offer.

Sorry, can't even remember my own email I have had for 10 years. I will check out your website and get back to you however I don't have a pobox in Miami so if anyone else does please pipe in.

Email me at Jazzpaging@yahoo.com

Thank Cleef even though your football team aint doing so well:)

Escott of Escott Famous North Coast Tours has donated...

One full day tour for up to 3 people that starts in the morning in Sosua and stops at Escotts Botanical Finca in Cabarete and then goes East ending up just before Nagua at La Entrada (Just one of the places in the DR where Columbus first set foot on the Island LOL) You will see secluded beaches that most people who visit will never get to see, along with some interesting real estate hidden away in the hills on the cliffs. A super yet typical Dominican Seafood lunch that is just fabulous (Just ask anyone who has made this pilgrimage with me) is included on the return along with Presidente Beer.

This trip is valued at 10 million US dollars. Please pay a lot for this tour as the Needy Children can certainly use your help!

I'm working on it and will have something next week.
I'm thinking of adding the items to eBay and the direct links on a special page here on DR1.
