The Lobsterfest street party is on tonight and with all the entertainment provided it is bound to be a fabulous evening.
Well it is Splat here. I cannot believe it Jambo goes to SPAH and his nuts chopped off and he is so happy and full of vim and vigor. He will not stop chasing me, and his tail does not stop wagging.Everyone keeps saying he is just so handsome-if you ask me he is just bloody annoying.
Back to the weather it is cloudy and overcast-well it it is the last night of lobsterfest and it always rains-as the boss says,like night follows day-whatever that means.
The uisual friday night at Pedr’s with live music and Karaoke
Well on sunday,as usual, it will be a fun day and everyone including children are welcomed. There will be the usual bar-b-que with the addition of lobster tails along with ribs chiken and pork. Fish and chips and also grilled fish also feature.
The sailing club is doing a demonstration and a couple of races will be held. The catamarans are there for rent as are the kayaks, and inner tubes are for all guests.
Has anyone noticed that the cabs,and their drivers are getting more and more belligerent in their modus operandi. They drive down Coconut Drive ,and other roadsat speeds over 40 mph on the wrong side of the road.
THe mayor and the town board should have all taxicabs have a governor fitted where they cannot drive faster than 20mph and if they do not like that they can remove their vehicles from the island. They have to remember the guests do not come to San Pedro for the sake of the various taxi drivers associations.
The AD says come on mayor enforce the speeding restrictions that you put in place.
Tomorrow night there are bands,steel bands,dancers and much more as the culmination of 2014 Lobsterfest comes to the end. There will be lots of stalls all selling different types of lobster and other dishes. It is one of the best,if not the best,nights of the year as all the entertainment is free. Look out of the Pedro’s stall as the lobster tacos are absolutely delicious. The start time is around 5.00pm and finish just before 12.00pm.

The AD wonders if anyone sees something familiar-this is a précis from chapter 4
Human beings are both strongly averse to killing each other and strongly obedient towardsauthority. This produces an interesting tension in situations like warfare.Wars are often caused by sociopath leaders who gain control over millions of ordinary, obedient people.Chapter 4: The nicest person in the worldSociopaths commonly put a lot of effort into their physical appearance and into a well-cultivated persona.People who know sociopaths usually fail to see the patterns in their behavior or ignore thewarning signs out of incredulity. [“He can’t be that dishonest…”]A “covetous sociopath” seeks to bring down people around them whom they consider superior.Sociopaths are experts at using threats, blackmail, bluffing, lies, and all sorts of other dirty tricksto control or hurt people around them. They also have a strong knack for sensing weakness inother people and coming up with ways to exploit that weakness.Chapter 5: Why conscience is partially blindMore characteristics of sociopaths:-Very charismatic, magnetic and charming. (The most interesting person at the party. Everyonewants to talk to them or hear them speak.)-Often have a certain “look” in their eyes that can be either hypnotizing or disturbing.-Follow high-risk, spur-of-the-moment, adventurous lifestyles that often attract people who wantexcitement. The sociopath often uses these people for money, sex, to take risks for criminal ends,or something else and then ditches them after they’re of no further use.-Will shamelessly use good looks and sexual blackmail to neutralize enemies.-Are naturally good actors and will feign interest and emotional responses when necessary.-When finally cornered for their misdeeds, the sociopath will start crying or fly into righteousindignation to drive away enemies. It’s always an act.-Sociopaths sometimes self-proclaim themselves to be animal lovers, artists, charity workers, or some other benign type of person so as the reduce suspicion of their true character.-After a sociopath has finally been exposed and punished, it’s very common for several peoplewho knew them to come forward and voice long-held suspicions and strange observations theyhad never before shared. Each person knew that something was wrong with the sociopath, butlacking any knowledge of abnormal psychology and unsuspecting that the sociopath had such analien mindset, the people never were able to understand what was really going on. The commonrefrain is that each person kept quiet about what they knew about the sociopath because “It wastoo crazy for anyone else to believe.”-A sociopath’s behavior makes no sense if you start from the assumption that they think like youdo.The inability to form emotional attachments with other humans is perhaps the biggest hallmark of psychopathy
A new rental company is opening up on front street and they have permission to bring 100 mopeds/scooters on to the island-this could be interesting a bunch of drunk 18-30 year olds drunk on vehicles that can trace over 40 miles an hour-This is a recipe for disaster,and can only lead to major problems.
The Town Board has already given the permits as has the Traffic Committee-so they will be here very shortly.
