We are mucho screwed!

From a few years ago: “Hey Rich!   Let’s skip the last part of today’s conference and go to Tijuana.  I think that’s a great idea!”

Present day:  I wouldn’t step foot in Mexico after the latest news about those crazy drug gang killings.  A few years ago it was scary enough wandering around those streets.  Especially when your DW (Designated Walker) leaves you hanging.  I keeed! I keeed!

If the Mexican govt collapses, that would mean nothing but bad news for us here in the States.  We might have to make a run for the Great White North.

If your looking for that someplace special to stay in London, try Hotel 41.  Located just a short walk from Buckingham Palace, this FIVE STAR hotel features large rooms (at least for London), 1 attendent for every two rooms, a fabulous lounge where you can eat or drink and even a special JAMES BOND package.   Its going to be a bit more expensive than other hotels in London, but your within walking distance of key attractions, can take the train almost directly there from Gatwick and you won’t have any problems with the room.   Check it out at http://www.41hotel.com/
