Sadly, my time here in Puerto Vallarta Mexico is winding down. Last night’s wedding was a huge success. Congratulations to the happy Newlyweds Jacki and Andre.

For a forced vacation situation, it is lovely to be here in Mexico. Especially with Jamzilla going on in Los Angeles.  I ordered a Medium Rare grilled Steak on the first night here. It arrived raw, and I made the mistake of tasting it. My stomach is still paying the price for the faux pas.
