Best time of year to go to Tahiti

After my trip to French Polynesia about a year ago, a lot of people have asked me what the best time of year to go to Tahiti is...especially when they find out the price difference between low and high season. There's a few factors involved, and while some tropical destinations have fairly radical weather differences in their seasons, I found that January (low season for Tahiti) was really pretty comfortable and beautiful--especially as virtually all the resorts have air conditioning, so you'll sleep well at night.

My eyes, post-Lasik

From Dr. Greg Schober at Macadam Vision Clinic come these pics of my eyeballs, post-Lasik.

I'm thrilled with both the outcome and the care of both Dr. Schober and Dr. Will at Will Vision...I highly recommend both of these guys!

My virtual garage at DriverSide

Discovered a new website for tracking your car info called DriverSide...just starting to build a page for my 1970 Chevy pickup.

I've uploaded a photo of each of the last bunch of cars I've added, but that's about it. Not sure at this point how useful the site is...will experiment for a bit.
