We have been extremely lucky, so far. Lets hope that our luck holds out. However, as the old saying goes, Hope for the best but By now we should have prepared our storm shutters and the hardware and tools needed to install them. Are they handy so we can reach them easily? Have you checked the condition of your roof? Have you cleared your yard of any debris that can be picked up through a window? Are you keeping your vehicles and generator topped off with fuel? We all need to be prepared because in case of a major disaster, some time. We need to be able to fend for ourselves until the ports open and help arrives.

Since its summertime, with these hot days and warm nights, it is lovely to have quick, light and simple recipes for easy entertaining GAZPACHO ple. A little over 2 lbs of ripe tomatoes 1 large clove garlic 1 red onion chopped 2 red peppers roasted and then peeled 1/2 cucumber peeled and seeds removed chopped into chunks, 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil thinly sliced prosciutto croutons for topping Cut a small cross in the base of each tomato, place in a heatproof bowl, cover with boiling water Put tomatoes, garlic, onion, chili, peppers and made need to be done in batches, depending on the size of blender. Season with salt and pepper then stir in most of the olive oil. Chill for at least 30 minutes. Place in bowls and top with ribbons of prosciutto and croutons, drizzle over remaining olive oil and a splash of sherry vinegar if desired or a dollop of crme fraiche is nice too.

Combine in a bowl the tar ragon, parsley, crme fraiche, 2 egg yolks and 1 1/4 oz of the cheese. Season well with salt and pepper.

Remove the top sheet and paper and bake for an extra 5 minutes. Allow to cool slightly. Meanwhile using a vegetable peeler, thinly slice the zucchini lengthways. Blanch in boiling water for 10 seconds. Drain and refresh with cold water. Spread half the cheese mixture over the pastry, leaving a one inch border.

Can you imagine what a nightmare that it is going to be to charge tourists $1 more per trip than residents. Checking IDs and keeping track of money, this is a perfect setup for more cheating in the books. Why does the PSC refuse to do their job and continue to allow the ferry companies to provide inac curate and unsubstantiated records and still let them increase fares? Why do the supervisors of the government employees refuse to do their jobs and properly supervise the government employees and require them to manage the grants correctly? Is it because they dont care about the community? Is it because they are lazy? Is it because they are on the take? Is it because they are too stupid? Is it because they dont have to? If the commissioners and supervisors dont know how to do their jobs, they need to be trained. If they just will not do their jobs, they need to be replaced.
