    No condo, but I use my timeshare at Westin Laguna Mar or Scottsdale for Cards games. I used to go to Kaanapali but the flight back is too brutal for me anymore.

    Cancún is just as nice and so much easier.. Fewer Americans to deal with also, which I'm sure you can appreciate.

    :D

    I am not an engineer nor do I want to be!! I'm compulsively sucked in. Big Tech is trying to ruin our lives!

    Have I mentioned that my Directv receiver won't stop dropping the internet connection!!

    If I am ever going through NM, I'm coming over to sort this out. And get a chili dog!

    All of the sudden, I have a strong urge to punch those boys in the face.

    Other than at March break, Americans are fine.

    (A few too many Germans for my taste.)

    My last name is not Kruger but it's very close to that. When they would ask for my name it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue of a Spanish speaker, I swear virtually every employee at the resort said 'ah, yo sé.. como Freddie Kruger, verdad?' lol

    My name would suggest I'm German and my mother's maiden name is Snyder, but I've never done the ancestry thing so who knows.

    Do the Ancestry thing, it can be fascinating.

    I still think it is funny how much people like the next when you can easily program a regular thermostat. I dont really need to change my temperature when I am driving home.
