Things Have Settled Down

October 31, 2012

Good morning everyone, Bob your friendly Parrot here….well I am glad to say things have quieted down today, the Caribbean is drying out and putting things back together after Sandy moved through last week. There is considerable damage to the Northeast part of the United States, they are saying billions of dollars worth of damage, it is amazing to me how powerful these storms can be. Don’t forget the Granada Rum and beer festival coming up in a couple days (Nov 2-3)…if you are near the island it promises to be a great event. The Unites States will be holding their presidential election next week, I’m sure the Caribbean is watching with great interest and anticipation…it should be a close race. Well, that’s all for now, keep checking back and have a wonderful day.
