Insomnia

Suffer from it quite often, tired at six awake at twelve fall asleep at three up at five.  Kind of disturbs your life.  So people that get a good night sleep probably don't have a lot of knowledge about this guy and his show and the fact that it is about to end.

Craig Ferguson  and the Late Late Show one of the most entertaining shows on the "Boob Tube" going to miss him.

Okay not really, got a message from my friend Bill asking if I would like to go for a sail Friday afternoon, hard to resist that kind of offer.  Beautiful day but rather light winds.  Still, anytime on the water is a good time in my book.

Out to sea



So we are off, 40' boat with a new volvo diesel humming away and going about 8 knots ( a knot is 1.15 miles an hour for you landlubbers).



Speed baby



Sails up once pass the bridge.  As  I look at the computer screen I realize how quite things become when you are just running on the the wind.  40' steal hulled boat 24km winds doing 4 knots, not bad.



Thanks Captain Bill






Great Day
