I wanted to shake up my life and go sailing (or learn on the job, so-to-speak) so headed to Florida to crew on a catamaran. This is about how it went or, rather, didn't - and my life since. Hopefully it will lead to a catamaran on the clear aqua blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, watching the sunset, a coconut rum and coke in hand. You must START AT THE BEGINNING of the blog, April 2009, to get the whole story...

Here's a saying I made up today:

What I've learned in life so far: You can please some of the people some of the time but you can't please all of the people all of the time. However you can piss everyone off anytime with very little effort.

You heard it here first, folks!

Two people I know managed to piss off a lot of people today with simple comments they made. One was a tongue-in-cheek blog about how to spot charter boaters. The other was a bit more serious critique of the Kony 2012 campaign.

I don't like how the anonymity of the internet - and often not even anonymity (because it's people you know) but just the distance it provides - brings out the worst in people. They say things to each other that they'd never say to their faces. I know, I have been on the receiving end of quite a bit of that sort of thing.

People need to lighten up, remember their manners, and - if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.

Here's my Amazon Store called Sandra's Selections, full of my favourite things and constantly updating it as I discover more fav's. It's more for fun than anything as I've never made a cent off of it.
