Check out the tread on some of these tires; it's amazing there aren't more 'mash ups here.

Where have all the tires gone?
Long time passing.
Where have all the tires gone?
To smolder in the Bovoni dump.

Hurricane Earl

Original post:
What do the campers @ Cinn. bay and Maho do during a hurricane? Is there a place for them to go or do they have to tough it out in their tents? 



My answer:
Yes, the Park Rangers hold guns to the campers' heads and make them stay in their tents during a hurricane.

Huh?

Tropical Storm Watch Issued for V.I.

Forecasters expect Earl to continue to strengthen as it makes its way across the Atlantic and become a hurricane by Sunday.
According to Walters, if Earl continues on its current track, all government offices and schools will be open Monday.

Awesome detective work by our very own Keystone Kops.

St. John: In the past few weeks, burglars have stolen tools, lumber, railings and other construction materials from several properties. Police believe that a large vehicle was used to remove the large items. The minimum cash reward for an arrest is $714 plus 10% of the value of any property recovered.

Yoo-hoo. I'm talkin' to you.

Lookie here. The round-about is not the best place to pick up people.
May the circle be unbroken. Move along now.

Good work to www.on-stjohn.com but it's "being" and not "beings." Sorry, I couldn't resist.


Don’t duplicate this

We feel like we should send this to the snarky No See Em’s blog, beings this is perfect fodder for its mysterious author, who loves this kind of stuff.
But, even though we fear the Glass Houses way karma can come around and bite you, we’re posting it.
A store that promotes its media and marketing assistance should probably not misspell Duplicate on one side of its sign. Maybe it’s French.

A truck broke down and spilled oil (?) on the lower part of Route 20, coming down from the Colombo Smoothie Stand, and now the road 'done close!

Why?

So the public parking lot was closed for 2-3 weeks for Carnival, then reopened shortly after Carnival ended. Now, a month later, they closed the parking lot again to paint the parking spaces. What am I not getting? Oh, wait, there I go, asking the "why?" question again.

Oh, man! My copy machine crapped out, and I still hate this scanner.

But this entry, in today's Daily News, reads:
"The Coki fixes did not include the decapitated public bathrooms."
Although, in all fairness, bathrooms are also called heads, and perhaps someone did decapitate the heads in this bathroom.

If you liked us then you should have put a shirt on it.

So sorry for the blurry picture. I was laughing too hard and trying not to let him see me. Blech!

Hugs to "Anonymous."

Dear Anonymous, 

I heart you for sending along this link:  www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=129086941&ps=cprs

Now I know what Bronc and the Broncettes can get me for my birthday, and it's not some scary tampon art from Etsy.

Hugs,

Moles? We don't have no stinking moles here.


I truly hope you had a better experience than we did in 2009 when we stayed there. 
It doesn't appear that there has been a change of ownership since then. We spent 
the entire week vacationing closely with armies of mice (literally running across the 
pillows at night and even running across your feet while cooking breakfast), 
moles which are disemboweled on the deck every morning by the resident cats 
who meowed all night, HUGE fruit spiders 
(which don't hurt you but I prefer not to have them in my bed at night) and 
roaches so bad that the downstairs bedrooms were uninhabitable (and locked by 
the owner...thank goodness our travelling companions had cancelled or it 
would have been a very bad situation). I would not recommend XXXX to my 
worst enemy and I must add that we are VERY laid back folks. The pool had so many 
chemicals that our kids were covered in a rash so we never used it after the first day. 
The laundry room was "locked" due to a water shortage (funny, we have travelled 
to St. John several times and were never told that there was an actual "ban" on 
water usage. We respect the environmental challenges which exist on the island and 
are not people of excess by any means). We later found out from the neighbor that the villa's 
sisterns were usually low because the road is in such bad shape that the municipal water trucks 
could not get up the hill and refill the cisterns. If we wanted to do laundry, we had to track 
down the owner and she would unlock the laundry room for an hour at a time 
(during the day when we would have rather been off enjoying the island, no less). 
We literally stayed at the house as little as possible and the owner, who we often 
saw around town, really couldn't have cared less! What a shame that this beautiful 
location has not been cared for because it would be a true gem with a little bit of TLC 
(or simply a good exterminator). And the internet was inaccessible by Verizon wireless 
card or ethernet cable, which was very disturbing because we had a family member 
in the hospital and we were trying to get updates daily...totally disappointed!
And then there is this, on Etsy:

*Islands', *let's, *islands, *quickly, *friends', *let's, *quickly


 A little US Virgin Island trivia for you... lets see how well you know the history of the island! 
In 1917, the United States purchased the Virgin Islands. Who sold it to them and for how much? No cheating
You guys managed to get that one pretty quick.. there is a tougher one on our other friend page.. lets see if you can get that one as quick.

Welcome to St. John! "T_e C_o_n J__el __ t_e Ca_b___."

This is just awesome! Look at the spikes on top of the fence. It would only be better if there was shredded clothing and stuff stuck on it.

Damn! Someone covered up the "S" in "FTS." before I could get this picture.

And it was probably someone who was sick of sitting in the endless traffic in Red Hook, looking at this sign, while the road is endlessly being torn up and repaved.

Happy 20 year's!

Sorry this is crooked, but I fucking hate this scanner. "Bring this ad you will recieve 20% off your 20%." What does that mean? And once again, I am in apostrophe hell. These apostrophes will be the death of me.

All of this for $199,000.

O.K., let's begin. Are those chairs tipped over? Did a storm just pass through?
And this is the roof? And we're looking at it because why?
Wow. I hope that donkey, or maybe it's a reindeer, comes with this train wreck.
Stairway to blech.


Cistern or mausoleum?
