2 megawatt facility in Puerto Rico (18°20'38.97"N 66°45'9.77"W)

did just that for a few hours on Monday around Sydney Harbour on a rented yacht - what bliss for a short time!!!

It's our 25th wedding anniversary today so we had a long w/e sans kids and went back to the scene of the crime, so to speak!WOOHOO!!! Back @ home today to share the celebrations with our three most wonderful creations......

Frank, Rocky if either of you decide to cast off and are looking for a deckhand, make sure you sail down the coast of Oz to pick this girl up!!! Could definitely cope with several mths at sea and I'm a dab hand in the galley to boot!!!

Wow this is an entertaining journey if nothing else at the moment, I'm curious to see how this election will play out for the citizens of the US and what the fallout will be, as I'm sure there will be fallout......

Still I am glad we can get on here and have a chat about these matters, I would have been planning a trip for next March to my fav city in the US, (SF), but our dollar value just makes it near impossible for the next little while. So will have to content myself with the photos from previous trips over until the currency system gets itself sorted out, LMAO - that means it won't be for quite some time then I guess!!!

Have a truly blessed day guys,

Vesta.

PS Frank I would be interested in hearing your response to Rocky's last as well though I think I might already know the answer...... V.

all the Markets are tanking, it isn't just in Oz...

I agree with Merlyn, right now they are just managing the decline, waiting for the meeting that is a week away between world leaders.

Will they decide on a new Worldwide Currency?

Will they roast Marshmallows over a bonfire of bad paper?

Just think of it this way. Last time the dollar was that low, our tourism industry (particularly from the U.S.) went through the roof. And now with the release of the movie "Australia", the tourists will be coming here in droves, or thats what they say.
