Still windy and we are staying, plus thanks to Dan

It has been a hectic few weeks. We had the issue with the exoneration paperwork and the National Car Reantal overcharge and then need for a survey for new insurance.

Varnish and condo time !

The cabin sole has been beginning to show some real wear and the companionway door was looking like it should have used a lot more sun screen, so it was time to get ready to varnish.

Mess -> hotel stay

Now that we know we are going to stay here in Papagayo Marina for the summer we went to work on some chores.

We got the exoneration paperwork !

Yes, it is April Fools' Day, but we don't think it is a joke.

No bad faith contract needed ?

We finally got our misappropriated Marina Papagayo National Car Rental refund. That only took almost a month and a lot of reminders and an angry complaint letter. Talk about substandard service !

Cultural whiplash

This is another surprising turn of events. We're almost getting whiplash !

Picking up the Senta-II blog again

December 18th was the last successfull back-up of our then 7-month old Mac Retina Powerbook. A week later it bit the dust with a failed memory module. As we found out, the new Mac powerbooks are not serviceable ... what idiocy ! Fortunately, the PB is covered under warranty but that doesn't really help when you are on the move and have no practical way to get to an Apple warranty service facility. So we are limping along with an ancient iPad (first day of sale of any iPad) and a more recent one.

Since all our blog entries were written using iWeb our blog is basically static for the time being so we'll try to pick up here on saiblogs as an alternative for the time being.

We'll start out by just posting some status updates that we sent to friends and family after the Lemon® Mac failure. After that, we'll pick back up with more regular blog updates.

Now we'll see how it works out.
