* We talk a *LOT* about cruises on The Vanpool. Thus, the story about that cruise ship that lost power off the coast of Mexico came up in conversation.
"Could you imagine," says Barbara. "No electricity. No air conditioning. No bathroom."

I tell her that I'm not, but that my wife is.
"I didn't think you were a Jew," she says. "Boca's a great place if you're a Jew."
