Wall humor
February 11, 2019

An engineer, who works at building consulting firm Apollo and teaches at University of Houston, notes the wall would run up against a variety of problems, including landowner challenges, potential ecological damage, and higher flash-flooding risks.
Believes the final bill would end up being closer to $50 billion.
constant maintenance requirements and unexpected glitches would obliterate original cost estimates.
One can purchase a 32 foot extension ladder and weld a cheap custom saddle for the top of the proposed wall so that I can get over it

Next generation drones can carry someone over it.

A resident near the Texas border said while pulling up his overalls, “He may be targeting Bentsen State Park, if the state of Texas allows him to.
The state of Texas is the landowner there, or if any private landowners agree to sign over their land, and that is done before the construction is set to begin,” Nicol said.
“But places like the butterfly center, the court has not granted the federal government possession, they can’t legally do anything there.
They can’t legally bulldoze land and build stuff on property that they don’t own anymore than I could go and bulldoze my next door neighbor’s house.

Message in a bottle from 1886 found recently in Australia
March 6, 2018
The world's oldest message in a bottle was discovered on a remote Western Australian beach.
While walking across the dunes Rollie saw something sticking out of the sand. A bottle.
The note inside was damp, rolled tightly and wrapped with string. We took it home and dried it out, and when we opened it we saw it was a printed form, in German.
The message read: "This bottle was thrown overboard on June 12, 1886 at latitude 32° 49' South and longitude 105° 25' from Greenwich East. Tell Molly to feed the cats and next time book me an all-inclusive package with CancunSteve here:
Hotel NYX Cancun."

No old hag can't travel for free
January 29, 2018
A 66 year old woman tried to fly for FREE.
This hag whose efforts to sneak onto airplanes have earned her the title serial stowaway was arrested early Sunday after Chicago police found her at O'Hare International Airport.
This old hag had been arrested at O’Hare just days earlier after sneaking onto a flight to London.
On Jan. 14, she made it through TSA security without a passport or boarding pass and somehow managed to board the London-bound flight.

British Customs officials detained her at Heathrow Airport on Jan. 15, and returned her to O'Hare on Jan. 18. Police arrested her upon her return.
The old hag left jail on Thursday after a judge reduced her bond feeling sorry for the hag.
Police arrested the old hag again in Florida. She is on probation and ordered to stay clear of airports.
So if you should see an old hag around your boarding gate without a boarding pass in her hand, give her a shove toward the authorities.

Wedding on the border
December 24, 2017
The ceremony was so nice that even one of the serious-faced U.S. border guards smiled as they held a gate open while an American groom and his Mexican bride took their wedding vows last month.
On the Tijuana side of the wall: Evelia Reyes and her young daughter, each with white gowns but no visas.
On the California side: a beaming Brian Zachary Houston, who earlier this year had been caught smuggling 133 pounds of meth, cocaine and heroin across this very same section of the border, and was out on bail.
When asked What's black on the outside and white on the inside? Brian replied Whitney Houston's nose!

Pan Am airlines dominates the skies
September 25, 2017
In August 1936, Americans retreated from the summer heat into movie theaters to watch China Clipper, the newest action-adventure from Warner Brothers.
As the Clipper makes its maiden flight, the flying boat (not like our adult-only cruise Desire Cruise) goes off into the waters off San Francisco before soaring in the air (like Superman) and passing over a half-constructed Golden Gate Bridge. As it crosses the Pacific, cutting through the clouds and a typhoon, a team of radiomen follow its course on the ground, relaying updated weather information.
The plane arrives in Macao to a harbor packed with cheering spectators and beaming government officials.
Pan Am became the first commercial airline to fly across the Pacific in 1935!
The film providing a psychological boost to the airline.
Pan Am made it possible for Americans to cross oceans in days rather than weeks. Passengers dined on four-course meals.
Back in 1927 people gathered at Roosevelt Field on Long Island, watching through the early morning drizzle as Charles Lindbergh piloted the Spirit of St. Louis into the air and toward Paris.
Vanderbilt, Rockefeller, and Whitney all invested in his airline at the time.

Pan Am won two contracts. A Foreign Mail Route spanning seven countries, swinging 2,074 miles from Miami to Panama. Another Foreign Mail Route went from Florida to Cuba, over to Haiti and the Dominican Republic and on to Trinidad for a total of 1,930 miles. Even though most in the Dominican were illiterate and could not write any letters. Pan Am received $2 a mile to transport 800 pounds of mail twice a week, making the contracts worth $2.5 million a year. The contracts shored up the finances of the new airline, which would henceforth be called Pan American Airways.

The mail routes provided the foundation for Pan Am’s push into the Caribbean and Central America. Over the next few years one can see the build up of Pan Am’s routes in the region, along with South America, systematically acquiring local airlines or cutting deals with the ones who wouldn’t sell or intimidating them in order to ensure Pan Am’s supremacy. The expansion was aided by Wall Street, which was keen to invest in the region, and businessmen, who didn’t mind paying more to spend less time traveling between home and Latin and South American capitals.
PAn AM was skilled lobbyist who secured government favors for Pan Am by branding it as an agent of the national interest (pure bull) with corrupt government officials.
The maiden flight of the American Clipper, complete with paying passengers, departed Miami on November 19, 1931 bound for Cristobal, Panama. Lindbergh was once again at the controls. While en route to the first stop in Cuba, passengers dined on the very first hot meal prepared in an airplane sailing over water. The food was awful.
The China Clipper was manned by a crew of a six, who received support from 42 men on the ground who played six card stud, and kibitzed.
If passengers needed help entertaining themselves, magazines, cards, and games were available.
In a little more than a decade, PAN AM had built the largest airline in the world, employing 5,000 people supporting 126 planes flying 54,072 route miles. Pan Am was also mired in debt. It struggled to turn a profit in the Pacific while making large capital investments to launch the Atlantic routes. Newspaper headlines and record-setting flights didn’t translate to healthy balance sheets.
These were the days before airlines nickled and dimed you for carry-ons. Your bag being 2 inches too wide.
Surcharges for blue bags. And the like.
Pan Am maintained control of its routes thanks to a corrupt Congress.
In October 1958, Pan Am began transatlantic jet service between New York and Paris. The Boeing 707 carried 141 first and economy class passengers and logged a cruising speed of 607 miles per hour. It traveled almost four times as fast the Clipper and carried six times as many passengers.

points to maximize family travel
August 24, 2017
Airlines have program that allows you to ticket an award from your account for travel by a family member, although they prohibit the sale or trade of awards.
There’s no requirement that the account holder travel with the award recipient.
So you can send mother-in-law off to Timbuktoo with your points and no need to go with her too.
Nevertheless, some often overlook this possibility (while annoyed at the high price that airlines charge to transfer miles between accounts.
In fact, I suspect that airlines make a healthy profit from those who pay to transfer miles to family members rather than just redeem their miles for an award in someone else’s name.
The vast majority of airline programs only allow their points and miles to be transferred for a price, but there are some that do allow some sort of sharing or pooling of miles. This is a huge advantage when family members need to combine miles to book an award flight.

Did you know at CancunSteve your frequent renters points which may be exchanged for FREE HOTEL nights or airport transfers never ever expire.

Unlike the airline points which have expiry dates.

British Airways offers an Executive Club Household Account which allows members to pool miles between up to seven people living at the same address.
Any adult member of the household can then redeem miles. This program also allows members to redeem awards for up to five others not living in the same household.

Japan Air Lines allows members to share miles between up to nine relatives at different households for a one time fee of $30 USD.

JetBlue launched a family pooling program, which allows up to 2 adults and 5 children to essentially share a single account.

Other airlines with sharing and pooling programs are Asiana, Hawaiian, Qantas, and a few others.

Manners when we travel
June 30, 2017
Being in a place we have never been makes us feel loose and comfortable. While this is totally cool, there are things to remember.
At an early age, our parents have been bugging us with lessons on manners.
Give me a break.
Sometimes, it just does not make sense, because obviously you have to be courteous and mindful of other people even if they suck.

Someone's little spoiled brat is being noisy in a plane. Do you stay quiet and endure?

No speak up but with respect and some restraint.

Don't suggest opening the emergency door and throwing the kid out. The rapid change in pressure can hurt all aboard.

Keep the size of your bag in mind if you are going to use public transport.
As much as possible, bring smaller bags when you go out to town so that you would not hit passengers on the bus or the train.
While sitting down, put your bag in between your feet and not on the seat beside you, unless a smelly, ugly, old fossil is about to sit next to you.
Hold down the bag when you are walking so that it does not sway as much, especially on busy streets.

Some reasons we feel Trump will be removed from office.
He has repeatedly disoboyed court orders. This could ignite a war between the executive and judiciary; a full blown constitutional crisis.
Trump who has shown himself to be impulsive acting like a sovergn in the middle ages forgets he is president in a country with courts and laws.
He may get away with that act in a banana republic today but not the USA.
Disregard of court orders can trigger impeachment proceedings.
Some presidents of the past have been impeached or forced to resign for less.
Trump is in violation of the Logan Act of the US Consitution. This dictates imprisionment for unorthorized negotions with foreign governments. Remember the thing with Trump demanding Mexico to pay the wall or no Free Trade agreement.
Never had that mandate.
Congress passed a number of bills in order to implement NAFTA, under the U.S. Constitution.
The free-trade thing is a congressional-executive agreement approved by a majority vote of each house of Congress.
In the past when a president withdrew from a treaty by executive decree the president’s authority was challenged in a lawsuit. Constitutional law is a field by itself.
Courts can decide one way or another.
But the impulsive Trump never consulted with congress on this threat to the Mexican government.
And according to the Chicago Tribune:
GM might be able to challenge any Trump tariff in court and win if Trump tries to levy a border-tax on GM vehicles built in Mexico. Donald Trump asked Russian hackers to spy on Hillary Clinton.
Graft and conflicts of interests. Guess where foreign diplomats stay when here? The Trump hotel. This is a violation of the emolumentos clause of the constitution baby.
Chances are Trump will continue to dump on the consitution and that congress at one point will be presured to react.
You know in Las Vegas one can gamble on sporting events. Black-jack. Roulette.
Now anyone can place their bet on when Trump will be impeached or forced to resign.
Place your bets.
Speaking of placing bets, did you know Cancun has casinos. And we provide discounts. Tips. Inside information for those whom book with us.

the Good Book says The truth will set you free

In an interview, Hillary Clinton stated that she “came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt”.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign has said they will go carbon neutral.
The Facts: Months after that pledge there have been no records that show Clinton moving to live up to this pledge, all the while she continues to fly around in private jets.

something real and a deal

Clinton purports to be a defender of women, yet her foundation has taken money from countries that commit human rights abuses against women.
Donations from Saudi Arabia were especially troubling, since Clinton claims to be a champion of women yet Saudi Arabia bans women from driving or interacting with men to whom they are not related.
The Clinton Foundation has revealed that the so-called charity is truly a quagmire of Clintonian corruption and sleaze through quid pro quo deals for the Clintons and their cronies to enrich themselves.
When Hillary Clinton was sworn in as secretary of state, she was required to sign a document stating she would keep the State Department independent from the Clinton Foundation. She was also required to disclose the Clinton Foundation's donors. Needless to say, Clinton did not follow this agreement.
ExxonMobil, the global oil and energy company based in Texas, gave the foundations between $1 million and $5 million. The company lobbied the Department of State for issues involving hydraulic fracturing, popularly known as fracking, oil sands and other provisions.

Big investment comes to Mexico

Auto Industry Giants Invest another $2 Billion in Mexico

They're not the only ones.
Over the last three years, Mexico has attracted more than $23 billion in new investment dollars from global car and car parts companies, reported the Toronto Star, and the nation’s total production is expected to hit upwards of 56 percent by 2020.

Trump is being sold on his business acumen.

Give me a break.
I don't need to tell you about those real estate failures. Anyone who doesn't live in a cave knows them.

Ever try Trump vodka? No one else ever did ever. Trump said it would become the number one drink in the USA. That company went out of business.

As did Trump airlines.
Debt forced Trump to default on his loans, and ownership of the airline was turned over to creditors.

Now this inept Republican claims he can be President of the USA?
And build walls?

And Trump mortgage which shut down after just a year!

Someone wanted to write a Trump biography but every page went back to Chapter 11

In effect it is like Trump is saying so look I declared bankruptcy a few times. Let me try my hand with running the USA.

Trump complains that China takes US jobs. Then why in his signature collection is a small ticket saying made in China

How do you define hypocrisy?
How do you define ineptitude?

Build some walls baby!

here's the real thing and we have it on promocion at 55% off for a limited time.

Don't wait. Let's book a date.

Trump argued that the government can save hundreds of billions of dollars in waste because the pharmaceutical companies are not mandated to bid properly in Medicare's behalf.

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson reported that there are over 900 individuals who had died before the election (and had voted) and at least 600 of those individuals had died way outside the window that an absentee ballot could have been sent, so it is known for a fact that there are deceased people whose identities are being used in elections in South Carolina.

How safe is Mexico | this from CNN
April 17, 2013, listing the top reasons to visit Mexico now.
Although the country might have suffered a slight PR problem in recent months due to exagerated news reports of violence along the northern border, and a US State Department warning that was issued in April 2012 for travelers heading to some of its states, the reality is that Mexico is actually much safer than the government would have you think.
The disconnect lies in the fact that Mexico is roughly the size of Western Europe, so border incidents have very little impact on life in the country's top tourist destinations. In fact, the best places to visit in Mexico can be found in the 17 states that are not mentioned in the travel warnings, such as the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico City and Baja California.
Mexico is a very large country, said Rodolfo Lopez Negrete, is BIG land, said the chief operating officer for the Mexico Tourism Board, in an interview with CNN. When you take into account the distance between Ciudad Juarez [the most violent city in Mexico] and Cancun, you're talking about 1,400 miles of distance. Puerto Vallarta is 1,000 miles away and Los Cabos about 1,600 miles away. That is equivalent to the distance between New York and Houston.
Mexico's Yucatan state remains one of the safest in the country and is home to a wide variety of fabulous destinations that are located near the party city of Cancun. In fact, some of Mexico's most popular Mayan archaeological sites can be found here, including those at Chichen Itza and Tulum, along with a number of traditional and very charming Mexican colonial cities, such as Merida. To give you an idea of how safe this area really is, the Yucatan state, which has roughly the same population as the US state of Kansas, only experienced two drug-related deaths in 2010, while Wichita, Kansas, had six gang-related killings last year.

That means that if your departure or return flight falls on a Monday, Thursday, Friday, or Sunday, you're paying more than you need to.
It may take some juggling of your vacation time; such as a trip that runs Tuesday to Tuesday rather than Sunday to Sunday; but what you lose in flexibility you more than make up for in savings.
And whenever you book remember to book with the good guys:

Crime is not exclusive to Mexico
Sep 6, 2011
It was Jane's honeymoon night.
Jane laughed off the warning her friends gave her about Italian boys from South Brooklyn.
A dull ripping sound startled poor Jane.
Tony got up. He held something in his right hand.
What's that asked a frightened Jane.
Just this said Tony flinging the mattress patch at her.
The one that states Do not remove under penalty of law.
You idiot screamed Jane. Removing that mattress tag is direct disobedience of United States government regulations!
You destroyed the proof this mattress was made in compliance with acts of the District of Columbia.
Chill out replied Tony. Get into the bed woman!
No asserted Jane. Not now. Not ever. I may have married a criminal but I'll never sleep with one.
So ended their honeymoon in South Phily at the Day's Inn.
Want a real honeymoon in style without worring about matress tags:

Time Share precautions
May 26, 2011
In addition to the cost per week there are stiff maintenance costs every year.
And those costs have yearly increases to boot.

Sometimes when you want to use your week of time share in some hotel-time share situations you may find your week is not available as the hotel booked it to a renting guest.
Which is why the slogan exists 'fly and cry'.
Read about Hector the OPC Time share salesman Hector
Careful if there is a cluase preventing you from cancelling. As you may want to.
And remember this. This is not an investment as investments are supposed to appreciate in value. No time share ever has.
Try to re-sell a time share. Good luck.
When you try to sell you will get less than you paid initially. Which is why this is not an investment buyt a vacation plan.
See if they offer fixed time or floating.
Get the befits and obligations in writing.
Don't want the hassles just a simple good all inclusive vacation? Good. a good deal with no strings attached on the beach in Cancun

Earth calling Jose Jimenez
Apr 24, 2010
Mexico now has a space agency AEXA which will launch a satellite into space.  

A Mexican made satellite

The launching area will be located within Quintna Roo the state which is home to the Riviera Maya & Playa del Carmen, Cancun, Isla Mujeres.
The area is thirty hectares. That's BIG!. The launch area is near Bacalar which is not far from Chetumal (the capital of Quintanna Roo). The area is unpopulated.

The Mexican astronaut Jose Hernandez will supervise the launch site.

Mexico can enter into the international space community. And have its' own buit and launched exploration and communication satellites.

Scientific investigation and space travel are priorities.

Imagine the first Mexican colony on the moon. Moon tacos al pastor.

Earth calling Jose Jimenez. Hey Jose where are you? What are you doing?

Dejame en paz guey!

20 million dollars beach recuperation for Cancun
November 9, 2005
Cancún, 9 de Noviembre.- El gobernador del Estado, Félix González Canto, sostuvo hoy una reunión con el secretario de Turismo, Rodolfo Elizondo Torres, donde se acordó que en la segunda quincena de diciembre se pondrá en marcha el proyecto de recuperación de playas, con una inversión de 200 millones de pesos.
In other words the Governor of Quintana Roo Félix González Canto reached an agreement with Federal Secretary of Tourism for 20 million dollars to recuperate Cancun's beaches.
This will focus from Punta Cancun to Punta Nizuc where the beaches were damaged. Work will begin mid-December so my guess is by the end of December improvement should be seen judging by the speed they recuperated beaches in Playa del Carmen.
Pascual from Chetumal puts a sock in baby's mouth

200 million pesos on beach recuperation project: from III Foro Nacional de Turismo Cancun
January 13, 2005
The project to recuperate the beaches of Cancun reach 200 million pesos.
The private sector contracted the firm Baird Costal Engineering who is responsible for the supervision of the project.

To insure reefs and other flora and fauna of the oceans will come to no harm environmental impact was studied with the committee Semarnat, the authorities of Parque Marino, the head of ecology of Benito Juarez, with consults to local ecological organizations.

International experts were consulted regarding technical oceanographic aspects.

This project which was first conceived in 2002 is now well under way and thanks to Mexican engineering and technical efforts working with international expertise more than three million meters of sugar-white sand line the cost of Cancun's beaches.

This successful project is a beautiful working example of the tight relationship between the development of tourism and the conservation and care of natural resources.

It is a model example of citizens working with the private sector and the Mexican government.

Witness and celebrate this here in Cancun on our sugar-white beaches caressed by transparent turquoise waters.

Puerto Cancun project: from III Foro Nacional de Turismo Cancun
January 15, 2005
At the III Foro Nacional de Turismo, Rafael Lang director general of the Puerto Cancun Project indicated the basic infrastructure (roads; water; electric; drainage) for that part of the project corresponding to the hotel zone of Puerto Cancun should be completed in June of this year (2005).
Puerto Cancun in its entirety when complete will have living areas; a hotel zone; marinas; golf course; commerical areas for shopping.
This project will have a strong social impact generating more than 10,000 jobs directly and 25,000 indirectly.
It is hoped the 18 hole golf course will be completed in 2006.
The golf course will be of professional category of 75 hectares bordering on the ocean.
The marina will have a capacity for more than 330 vessels.

The Cancun supermarkets
July 18, 2004
Everyone takes the bus to Wal-Mart. Yes, Cancun has a Wal-Mart. As a matter-of-fact it has two. There are also several Chedrauis; many Comercial Mexicanas; a Carrefour; and a Soriana. Each super-market has its own advantages. And in addition to these indoor air-conditioned mega stores you can find outdoor markets such as mercardo 23 or mercardo 28. If all you need is a loaf of bread and a six pack of beer any of the supermarkets will do. However: IF you are looking for tender beef the Soriana offers choice red meat. For a wide selection of exotic fruits also go to Soriana. Vegetables are most extensive at the Mega Comercial Mexicana. For bagels from Mexico City the Wal-Mart is your only choice.

Swim with the dolphins
July 26, 2004
So you want to swim with the dolphins. Before spending $80usd to swim with the dolohins remember you can swim with Joel Gondelman for free. There are several places to swim with dolhpins in Cancun. In the heart of the hotel zone in La Isla mall in the aquarium. Visit La Isla mall
Or at Parque Nizuc (alias: Wet and Wild) on the road to the airport. About 2 miles out of the hotel zone.
To learn more about dolphins IS the dolphin a porpoise?
The price to swim with these intelligent creatures depends on where you go; how long you swim; and the type of experience, i.e, 'interactive'.

III Foro Nacional de Turismo Cancun excerpts
Jan 24, 2005
Quintana Roo is a model of what turism can do for a state. After the Mexican revolution the Mayans lived almost as slaves working on the haciendas. Today there are more oportunities of employment for everyone in areas directly or indirectly related to turism.

Tourism is the third most important industry in Mexico.

The friendliness of the Mexican people encourage tourism.

After just 34 years of existance Cancun has a population in size of Merida, a city of hundreds of years in age.

Some of the lobster caught in the waters of Isla Mujeres is exported to the USA.

Quintana Roo now has the highest level of immigration in Mexico.

Cruise ships contribute little to the city hosting them, rather they take advantage of existing infrastructures and natural surroundings.
