Well they're really JUST guidlines
Marilyn and I went for lunch and celebrated my birthday today. Birthday lunches do not count agains the Cooking Challenge!
For my present she chose a fine literary work - The Pirates' Code and window cling for my car.
I am looking forward to reading this Classic Code. Here's an excerpt: "A pirate should never underestimate his capacity for illness. There are many common ailments that can afflict a pirate while at sea."
Here's some good advice for a few of my friends that just returned from a cruise.
"If you are going to be sick, it is best to do so on the leeward side of the ship so that any unpleasantness will be carried away by the wind"<>
Mal De Mer or Sea Sickness
