I have two Captain Ron DVD's, don't ask, my wife still bugs me on that one. I enjoy the humor of Monty Python only they don't make them any more, or still, Benny Hill was fabulus but he is gone now. I Love the storie of Captain Ron and my favorite part of the movie is when they finally sail the boat. BTW, here most of us hard working phesants crap on our government, although we still love our country! God bless America! Here is a website all would like

Perfect example. Python were , in their time, doing the finest comedy on the planet and those wot went before them show British humour in it's best light (Goons, Cook/Moore, Frost ) but for me Benny Hill was as funny as a bad bout of constipation. The Marx Brothers were comedic geniuses as far as I'm concerned but how anyone ever found Bob Hope to be amusing is utterly beyond me. It ain't where you come from that matters to me , its whether or not your material works.

Today my favourite comedians come from New Zealand, Canada, USA, England and Ireland. Nothing to do with any of their nationalities.

Me, I love my country as well but if that miserable little ***** that runs this place was run over by a bus tomorrow not a tear would I shed.

(Oh to clarify, I didn't mean Rupert Murdoch even though he has as much say as any elected official, I meant the runt Howard.) (If you wish to spell runt with a c i have no objection )

Hmmm, with Martin Short in it you might be right. He can be quite amusing but I find his constant histrionics somewhat irritating.

OTOH, some of my favourite humour is American. I only crap on your government. Your writers, musicians and comedians can be as good as anything produced anywhere although I do have to say that the Brits have the edge when it comes to comedy and drama. You lot have the edge musically but it's a tough call.

If I can find Capt Ron , I'll rent it.[/QUOTE]

BTW Martin Short is Canadian, not American

I didn't know that, but I wasn't dumping on Short because of his nationality, I simply find him irritating. OTOH isn't Canada part of America ? It's why I often refer to USAians to distinguish them from other Americans.

BTW, Joe versus the Volcano should be a classic. It is one of the three Meg Ryan & Tom Hanks movies... My wife loved them all—Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail and Joe Versus the Volcano.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hard to beat the full moon scene in Joe Versus The Volcano to me. Worth the movie, just for that.

Changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes, nothing remains quite the same...
Through all of the islands, and all of the highlands...
If we couldn't laugh, we would all go insane.

Mentally or physically?

Metro-Atlanta physically. Looking at a Hunter and O'Day '25 to sail around Lake Lanier right now (if my finances will hold up for a couple more weeks). Mentally, I left Margaritville this past weekend and am sailing to Kokamo. This Florida boy is just having too many withdrawal symptoms. I can't keep making wind noises and telling the wife to heave to.

One bright spot. Met a really nice couple this past weekend who took us for a sail on the Cape Dory 31. They spent most of the time giving sailing instructions to my wife who just lapped it up. She did great (with me at helm) until we put the railing in the water on a strong gust. She got a bit nervous and we had to back off the speed, but what a blast. After that is was oysters and beer. Couldn't have been a better day.

Got that one too. Good movie. Master and Command (even if it is mostly computer graphics) is pretty good. Another one, Capt'n Dave, I think, is a British movie which really ain't that good.
