Whats your favorite Jerked Chicken Recipe?

Jerk is a style of cooking native to Jamaica in which meats are dry-rubbed or wet marinated with a very hot spice mixture called Jamaican jerk spice. Jerk seasoning is traditionally applied to pork and chicken. Modern recipes also apply jerk spice mixes to fish, shrimp, shellfish, beef, sausage, and tofu. Jerk seasoning principally relies upon two items: allspice (called "pimento" in Jamaica) and Scotch bonnet peppers (among the hottest peppers on the Scoville scale). Other ingredients include cloves, cinnamon, scallions, nutmeg, thyme, garlic, and salt. (reference Wikipedia)


Ok, so you have some chicken and a few spices combined with a little smoke! But is your recipe the great one? If you have a favorite Jerked Chicken recipe or link, please post it in the comment box! We would love to try different recipes!

Another recipe:

Ingredients

  • 5 pounds chicken pieces
  • 2 cups distilled white vinegar, plus 1 teaspoon

In the bowl of a food processor combine remaining 1 teaspoon vinegar, scallions, Scotch bonnets, soy sauce, lime juice, allspice, bay leaves, garlic, salt, sugar, thyme, and cinnamon. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the jerk marinade for the Jamaican Barbecue Sauce.

Rinse chicken pieces well under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels. Divide chicken pieces between 2 heavy-duty gallon plastic sealable bags and divide marinade evenly between the 2. Turn bags over to evenly distribute marinade, and refrigerate chicken for at least 24 hours and up to 2 days.

  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons dark rum
In a medium non-reactive saucepan combine all ingredients except rum and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat to a simmer and continue to cook another 12 minutes, until sauce is thick and flavorful and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and stir in rum. Cool sauce to room temperature before serving.

Yield: About 2 cups

Using Your Cell Phone Abroad

Using your cell phone abroad can be nightmare or impossible. If you are going outside the country for vacation make sure your cell phone carrier has an international plan and make sure you get the actual cost per minute when calling back home. Charges can add up quite fast. It isn't uncommon to get home and receive a $300 bill for the week that you were away.

There are several options you can use. We have done these three:
1) Use our own phone with an international plan and roaming charge. First you have to set this up through your carrier. They transfer you to someone to verify who you are and to check your records to make sure your not a terrorist (and they go way back in your files). And then when you do get to your destination your phone sometimes works and sometimes doesn't but you do have a phone to connect to your family and work back home.  Now it's a little easier because you can send a text and when you do get a slight signal it will go through.
Not all carriers have international plans:
AT&T – YES
Verizon – NO
Sprint – NO
Nextel - NO
T-Mobile - SOME

2)Rent a international phone. This is pretty handy. You can rent a cell phone for a short period of time without a contract. They will send you your phone via mail carrier and it is all set up and ready to go. All you have to do is rent the phone and prepay for your minutes. Possible rates as shown*
*Rental Rates
$3 per day (Min 7 days)
Optional Theft & Loss Protection $1 per day (with $40 deductible)
Call charges
Incoming Calls $1.50 per minute
National Calls $1.50 per minute
International Calls $2.50 per minute
But this phone should reach most places. Just verify the exact location that you will be traveling to to make sure your not carrying around extra weight for no reason. It also helps by renting a phone instead of bringing along your $400 Black Berry (I think that is how much they are these days) into the salt air or into the rain forest for a hike. You can contact companies like http://www.cellularabroad.com/ 
http://www.mobal.com/cell-phone-rental/ and there is plenty of companies out there with different rates.
Now you can buy an international phone cheaper than you can rent one. Just find one that doesn't charge monthly fees. Mobal I think has a phone for $50.00 bucks without a big contract.

http://www.paradise-computers.com
3)Renting a phone in the country you are traveling to. This in my opinion is the best. It is a lot cheaper to call back home than to pay for roaming international fees from your local carrier.
And you can preorder your phone before you get there, and have it delivered to your hotel or airport.
It's a lot easier than you might think. Most computer shops have them also for rent.

We have also tested our Majic Jack phone. We packed a simple phone and when we got a wireless signal we were able to use the Majic Jack. And since we were calling home, it didn't cost anything extra!
So if you will be staying more than a week, I would suggest buying one of these and a cheap phone to bring with you. It was worth it.

Grillied Pineapple

Grilled Pineapple
Heres an attractive dish that goes perfect with any grilled food.

You will need the following ingredients.
  • a ripe pineapple (imagine that)
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1-2 shots of Tequila ( I also like to substitute with flavored rum, like coconut) 
First lets go over the selection of the perfect pineapple. When at the market or the produce stand carefully thump the pineapple with the side of your thumb. You are looking for a thump sound and not a tap sound. you will here the difference as you do it. This will give us a ripe Pineapple. I have found that the ones from Costa Rica or Honduras seem to be sweeter.

Slice the pineapple length ways  through the top but leave the top. I usually slice the core almost all the way through on both sides so that I can just pop it out after its done.
Place the 2 half's face up on a cookie sheet or pan that will fit into your fridge.

Next in a small boiler heat the soy sauce, brown sugar, and honey. Stir the contents until almost liquid. Once its ready take it off the stove ( I say this for safety purposes) and add tequila.

Baste the pineapple with this and save the remaining liquid to use later.
Cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge for minimum of an hour.

Now you are ready for the grill. Its not necessary, but if you have it, use aluminum foil to place the pineapple on to keep it from cooking the bottom to quickly.

Place the pineapple face up and off to the side. Let cook for about an hour while basting every once and a while to keep it moist.  At the end of the hour, turn the pineapple face down on the grill to finish cooking and will add the perfect color and grill marks also. Let grill until your liking.

Now you have a perfect side dish or desert. Great hot or cold.

Petey the cool parrot

    So we're in our room on the second floor trying to get a internet connection. The wife and I are balancing the computer on the window ledge trying to keep it from falling to its doom. When we looked up and there is this cool parrot less than 2 feet from us, peering in as to say hello and what are you doing? It only moved a little at a time and that was mostly its head trying to get a better peek.
The next morning at breakfast we asked Jeff the owner of Casa Calico about the parrot.
He said the bird was there when he bought the place. Its name was Petey.  While we ate breakfast that Jeff prepared (which was great and more than I could eat), Petey came for breakfast also, waiting patiently for a bite of toast.
He walked across the outside deck like he owned the place. What a great bird. We fell in love with Petey and he was one of the highlights of our trip to Roatan Honduras. We had a great time while we were there and it was so relaxing without the typical resort hustle and bustle. No schedule and no shoes.

U.S. National Go-Topless Day

U.S. National Go-Topless Day!


Hundreds of semi-naked women converged on the boardwalk at VeniceBeach in Los Angeles on Sunday for the fourth annual "Go Topless Day." Our favorite yearly event calls for equality for women, saying that if men can go topless, so can women. We wholeheartedly agree.
Carrying signs such as "Men and women have nipples. Why should women hide theirs?" and "Equal topless rights for all or none," women bearing their breasts or wearing pasties marched up and down the boardwalk. Men joined them too, enjoying the view -- of the ocean, we mean.
The event was held in several other U.S. cities, and will be held in two Canadian cities next weekend. If you happen to be up north and looking for a little topless action of your own make sure to mark down Sunday
The event is organized by a group called the Raelians. Members believe in UFOs as well as equal rights for all, hence its topless views. A little good publicity for a cult-like organization never hurts, either.
"This is a basic civil right, just like blacks and whites being able to use the same water fountain," said Nadine Gray (above), a Raelian who helped organize the rally.
Fellow Raelian Tara Terstenjak said, "The Constitution says women are equal to men in every sense of the word. But if we don’t have the Constitution supporting equal rights in all forms, what good is it?"

Driving in Paradise



I thought I knew how to drive, I started traveling when I was 15. I had an adventurous spirit that took me all over the United States and Canada. Then I lived in Alaska for a while, with all the icy roads, blizzards, caribou and of course the motor heads that love to drive big foot at 80 miles an hour in a snow storm. But I found out real quick when I landed in San Pedro Sula, Honduras that there was a difference between knowing how to drive and actually driving! 
My  wife and I were headed to Trujillo to look at real estate. We  had flown  into San Pedro Sula which was almost on the other side of the country. We thought it would give us an opportunity to see the country. ( What was I thinking? You can't see the country and watch the road, too!) Soon as we exited the airport the craziness started! As an American, traffic laws are important. So you're thinking this should apply here also. Wrong! The speed limit sign was just a
recommendation. I tried to follow the speed limit so as not to get stopped for a traffic violation. That caused even more problems. Stop signs, "ALTO" were just there to let you know there's an intersection up ahead.  As we left San Pedro Sula, I was almost in tears by the time I had reached the out-skirts of town. I was in no way prepared. I had a map and the road system seemed comparable to that of the U. S.What could possibly go wrong? 
There wasn't anyway I could have prepared for the insanity. Auto and foot traffic, bicyclist pedaling with me and against me. And of course we can't forget the mule drawn wagons that happened to be in my lane. I didn't want to pass due to the chaotic traffic that steady flowed at and around me. C'mon, who doesn't pass a mule?  Once out of town, the congestion slowed and the beauty of the country opened up.
Wow, talk about deja vu it was all coming back to me. My first time driving through Nashville at rush hour. Yeap, that was the feeling. I wasn't in control then, and I wasn't in control now.  




We meandered through a few small villages that were surprisingly picturesque. At this point mainly scooters and bicycles dominated the road. Having driven for several hours, we arrived in Le Ceiba. The directions we had were sketchy and the roadways were hard to navigate. But, we had made it this far and the sun was going down. Half lost, the traffic was just as crazy as before. Taxi's everywhere and despite what you might have heard they are far worse than any New York cabby. And everything has a horn. If you pass someone, you honk. If you see someone you know, you honk. If you are aggravated with the car in front, you honk. If the sun is shining, you honk. Everyone honking for one reason or another. All the honking and chaos will confuse the hell out of you, add a side order of nervousness  and you'll be totally as freaked out as I was.

The next morning we headed off to Trujillo, except for taking a wrong turn it was a pretty mellow trip. After doing a walk through of the property we had came to see, we were headed to Roatan to visit an old friend. We dropped the car off in Le Ceiba and caught the ferry over to the island.




We grabbed a taxi to take us to our friends house which was halfway across the island. Thinking this was a good idea since I was a nervous wreck from driving back on the mainland. But then we weren't too sure about anything at that point. Let's just say we now know where all the guys that run the NASCAR must come to try out. I think the gas pedal must have been pressed to the floor the entire time. Our stock car driver only applying the break when absolutely necessary. Wow, is all I can say, truly amazing. By the time we reached the water taxi, my stomach was turning. Fortunately the boat trip was very pleasant, and the guy that shuttled us across the inlet was helpful.

We weren't sure where we were going exactly, there had been a fire a couple of days previous that shut down all cell tower service and we hadn't been able to reach our friend, John. With the aid of our driver we were able to locate our friends house and it was great when we pulled up, he was waiting to greet us at the dock. It was nothing but relief to just relax in the hammock and drink a cold one after the taxi journey. We have been back several times and have somewhat gotten used to unique Honduran traffic.


Taxi are the only way to travel. You get to sit back and enjoy the country and let some one else worry about what all that honking is about. (This also give you 2 free hands to hang on for dear life during your journey). So, if you haven't experienced driving in paradise, may I suggest  a taxi ride first. Get a first hand look at how the locals drive, then and only then rent a car or a jeep and go see what paradise has to offer.
And for all those who have had the luxury of this experience, please do share!

The addiction of the hammock

     From the first time I fell into a hammock I was hooked. On an extra large porch overlooking the vast Caribbean Sea, with a light breeze, I sipped on a local beer. I lied there thinking of everything yet nothing really at all! All I wanted to do was to stretch my fins out a little and go snorkeling for the afternoon, but I was too relaxed. Too engulfed in the tranquility of it all.
     Now sometimes in mid afternoon before the chores are done, I sneak off to take a break in the hammock, but then get lost in the secret spell that the hammock has cast upon me. Can't seem to break it, or maybe I don't want to!
     Its almost like a kid and their blanky.  Curl up within it, grab a good book and I am in my own world.
Hammocks have been around forever and have been used for every occasion from camping to sailing. And why wouldn't they? It all sounds romantic to sleep on the ground until you wake 3 hours later with a stiff back.
      I have two, and of course there is a good one and a great one. When company comes over to shoot the breeze, I make sure that I am in the lead to get the great one. Childish maybe, but so true!
     And when I wake up in the middle of the night and cant sleep, I'll slip off to my hammock and stare at the stars pondering until I slip off into a coma! "Note to self"-  when you have to work in the morning don't forget the alarm clock  again!
      Addicted?? Yeah, sure you can say that!!

What is a nude beach?

    Ok, so is this a dumb question? Well of course its a beach for people to be nude!!
Well Wikipedia helps explain what a nude beach is just in case we wanted to know a little in dept info about it!

A nude beach is a beach where users are legally at liberty to be nude. Sometimes the terms clothing-optional beach or free beach are used. Nude bathing is one of the most common forms of nudity in public. As beaches are usually on public lands, any member of the public is entitled to use the facilities without membership of any movement or subscription to any philosophy. The use of the beach facilities is normally anonymous. Unlike a naturist resort or facility, there is normally no membership or vetting requirement for the use of a nude beach. The use of nude beach facilities is usually casual, not requiring pre-booking. Nude beaches may be official (legally sanctioned), unofficial (tolerated by residents and law enforcement), or illegal. However, nude beaches are relatively few and some distance from cities, and access is at times more difficult than at a regular beach and the facilities at these beaches tend to be very basic.

Now why would you even think of going to a nude beach?
People visit a nude beach for any of a number of reasons. These range from people who see no reason to wear clothing when taking part in water activities or sunning, or who enjoy being nude or partially nude . Some people visit a nude beach because they enjoy looking at people who are nude, or because of curiosity. Some people sunbathe on a nude beach to get a more even suntan, and to eliminate tan lines. Some people sunbathe at a nude beach to get an all-over tan, but do not have access to a private place where they can sunbathe, such as a back yard not visible by neighbors.


Now is this Legal? Well......
Most beaches around the world, including nude beaches, are on public lands. That means that though private resorts and hotels that adjoin a beach may enclose their property behind fences with controlled access, most countries do not allow private ownership of the actual beach area. Thus, while a resort can control access and set clothing standards on its property, these standards would not necessarily apply to the beach itself, which remains subject to local laws or customs, and public access to the beach itself usually remains unrestricted. This applies, for example, to the islands in the Caribbean, Mexico, and Florida. On the Seven Mile Beach in Negril, Jamaica, for example, though the beach is lined with private resorts with fences down to the sand/waterline, the beach itself is open to the public. Though actual clothing standards vary from resort to resort, the beach area is officially designated as "TopFree", and public access is unrestricted.

Hedonism II




You can be as free as you want to be, depending on your mood. For a quiet, private moment, slip off to a shaded hammock with a good book. Or shed your inhibitions, and join in the party on the nude beach. Just be yourself, or someone else entirely.

If you're wondering what a typical day at Hedonism II is really like,
ask anybody who's been here. Chances are they'll all tell you the same thing: "There's no such thing as a typical day at Hedonism II." No two days are ever alike. Sure, the water's always warm and the sun's always bright, but the resort's true character is shaped by the people who visit. One thing's for sure - there's never a dull moment at Hedonism II.
It must have been something in the water. Because from the moment Hedonism II's gates opened twenty-five years ago, it's been the most widely recognized, and notorious, resort in the world. Words really can't quite describe the thrill of actually being here. It's the ultimate guilty pleasure, only without the guilt. A real life Garden of Eden.
Situated on the tip of legendary Negril Beach, life at Hedonism II centers around two private stretches of beach: One nude. One not. Both fantastic. It's a big part of what makes the spirit of Hedonism II so enjoyable.
Some say it's because of the magical potions served up at the bar. Others attribute it to powerful aphrodisiacs found in the native fruits. And then of course, it could just be the mirrors on the ceilings of every guest room. But whatever it is, it seems that everyone at Hedonism II develops a little more enthusiasm for all things romantic. Best of all, what happens here, stays here. It's the unwritten code of true Hedonists.
That wonderful, non-judgmental attitude is just one reason why you're likely to see the same smiling faces, year after year. A friend of Hedonism, once, is a friend forever.
There are a total of 280 rooms and suites. All rooms and suites have air-conditioning with tiled floors, mirrored ceilings, 1 king or 2 twin beds, television, coffee and tea making facilities, iron and ironing board, new private 5-head Euro-style Jacuzzi shower, clock radio, CD-player, safe deposit box, hairdryers. Single guests can occupy a room on a "shared" basis; clients traveling alone will share with guest of the same sex or they can opt to pay an additional single supplement and be guaranteed the accommodation to themselves.
