Why is it that every time I go on a holiday, upon my return, I have to visit my favourite dentist?
This time I broke the porcelain off the front of my bridge. Don’t think that isn’t going to cost more then my short trip to Prince George.
My thanks to, Sheila, the cook, for a scrumpdillicous meal. It’s not her fault I bit the fork tine instead of the pork.
And our thanks to Paul for putting us up, and putting up with us.
It was a short hectic holiday, even more hectic when the windshield wipers quit on the way back, during heavy sleet in the Fraser Canyon.
As I said in my last E, my novel - FERO - is finally published. However no one had bought it yet, at least no one has sent me a critique, My Goddaughter read it, half way, through the first chapter and then quit. She said there is too much sex in it and I am a dirty old man. “Thank you“, I replied.
If you read it, I would appreciate a critique. You can put it in Amazon as a review, or send it to me and I will add it to my webpage.
In my last E I told you I have some of my photos hanging in a gallery (Smart Frames) in Metrotown, and have posted some on `Zazzle’. - https://www.zazzle.ca/bear23* Also you will now find them at `Frameworks Gallery’ in Prince George. - http://www.frameworksgallery.ca/
I have added another baker’s dozen, jokes that is, http://www.leespage.ca/h/humour/humour_9.html .
Wishing you and yours the best of the season

Barely (Bear / Lee)

Hotel Lopez Cozumel Mexico

Hi,

My buddies and I drove from our college in Mexico City to Merida with stops in Veracruz and Campeche.
From Merida we flew on a tiny Aero Maya airplane to Cozumel where we spent about a week at the Hotel Lopez.
It was a small hotel with ceiling fans and no AC.
The family who owned and ran the hotel were very nice to us.
The first large hotel, the El Presidente ,was getting ready to open up by Christmas.
The year was 1966.
I'm amazed that this family run hotel is still around.

Bob

REPLY

I took Serena to Cozumel in `04 with plans to spend a night in the Lopez but, unfortunately, it was closed. I believe, permanently.

1I wanted to tell you what a great page you have for barra de navidad.
I noticed that you had some related limks on you page and I was wondering how I could go about getting www.seasidemexico.com added to your recommended sites.
I would be very grateful.
I noticed on your guest book page that you said you love it there and I would be more than happy to put you up in one of our great places next time you want to make a trip down!

Steve Schwab CEO Seaside Enterprises
Barra de Navidad, Jalisco Mexico

REPLY

Thank you.
Your site is also very impressive.
My normal rate for a commercial link is $100 per year.
For this I will put your logo on the appropriate page on both my `Lee’s Page’ and my mirror site `Bear’s Page’
+++++++++
Thank you for your offer for a room.
I do love Barra however I am not sure if I am going there next trip.
Still waiting for my daughter-in-law to get her passport as we wish to hit Mexico this winter.
My boy and his wife have never been to Mexico and as a first trip I am thinking of taking them to Quintana Roo.
However I was just reading up on the area around Barra.
For myself it would be a great place to explore but as they are younger they would probably prefer the night life in Playa and Cancun.

SORRY I HAVEN’T WRITTEN FOR AWHILE

I have been so busy, working on a TV series - Supernatural.
Really long hours.
All I do on Saturdays is sleep.
Sundays I work on my catalogue.
I have some of my photos hanging in a gallery (Smart Frames) in Metrotown.
I am building up a catalogue of more for them to keep on hand.
I also have a few of my photos on line at `Zazzle’- http://www.zazzle.ca/my/images .
What I would really like you to look at is a couple in a contest.
I entered one, http://www.itravel2000.com/Wintravelforlife_vote.aspx?referenceNumber=18653499 ,
and Serena entered one, - http://www.itravel2000.com/Wintravelforlife_vote.aspx?referenceNumber=18653533 .
Please look at the pictures and then vote on them.
If we get enough votes, one of us might win a trip for two.
And, finally, yes, I have added another baker’s dozen, jokes that is, http://www.leespage.ca/h/humour/humour_8.html .
So keep those jokes coming in. If it is funny I may add it to page 9.
Till next time.

Please remove me from your mailing list. Thanks

Great to hear from you... My daughter misses you all a lot, she's not doing it this year but hopefully next year

Bear:

I forwarded your email to my son, Michael, who will forward it to his friends to get you more votes.
I forwarded it to Michael because he has bought all the seaons that are out of Supernatural. It's his absolute favorite show.
What do you have to do with Supernatural?

Take care.

Friends, this may be helpful.

A NEEDLE CAN SAVE THE LIFE OF A STROKE PATIENT

From a Chinese Professor.
Keep a syringe or needle in your home to do this... It's amazing and anunconventional way of recovering from stroke.

When stroke strikes, the capillaries in the brain will gradually burst.
When a stroke occurs, stay calm.
No matter where the victim is, do not move him/her. Because, if moved, the capillaries will burst.
Help the victim to sit up where he/she is to prevent him/her from falling over again and then the blood letting can begin .
If you have in your home an injection syringe that would be the best.
Otherwise, a sewing needle or a straight pin will do.

  • 1. Place the needle/pin over fire to sterilize it and then use it to prick the tip of all ......10 fingers.
  • 2. There are no specific acupuncture points, just prick about an mm from the fingernail.
  • 3. Prick till blood comes out.
  • 4. If blood does not start to drip, then squeeze with your fingers.
  • 5. When all 10 digits is bleeding, wait a few minutes then the victim will regain consciousness.
  • 6. If the victim's mouth is crooked , then pull on his ears until they are red.
  • 7. Then prick each earlobe twice until two drops of blood comes from each earlobe.
    After a few minutes the victim should regain consciousness.
    Wait till the victim regains his normal state without any abnormal symptoms
    then take him to the hospital.
    If he was taken in the ambulance in a hurry to the hospital, the bumpy trip will cause all the capillaries in his brain to burst.
    I had practical experience with it. Therefore, I can say this method is 100% effective.
    In 1979, I was teaching in Fung Gaap College in Tai Chung.
    One afternoon, I was teaching a class when another teacher came running to my classroom and said in panting,
    'Ms Liu, come quick, our supervisor has had a stroke !'.
    When I saw our supervisor, Mr. Chen Fu Tien, his colour was off, his speech was slurred , his mouth was crooked - all the symptoms of a stroke.
    I immediately asked one of the practicum students to go to the pharmacy outside the school to buy a syringe, which I used to prick Mr. Chen's 10 fingers tips.
    When all 10 fingers were bleeding (each with a pea-sized drop of blood), after a few minutes, Mr. Chen's face regained its colour and his eyes' spirit returned,
    But his mouth was still crooked . So I pulled on his ears to fill them with blood.
    When his ears became red, I pricked his right earlobe twice to let out two drops of blood. When both earlobes had two drops of blood each , a miracle happened.
    Within 3-5 minutes the shape of his mouth returned to normal and his speech became clear.
    We let him rest for a while and have a cup of hot tea , then we helped him go down the stairs, drove him to Wei Wah Hospital.
    He rested one night and was released the next day to return to school to teach. Everything worked normally.
    There were no ill after effects.

    IF POSSIBLE PLEASE FORWARD THIS AFTER READING. YOU NEVER KNOW IT MAY HELP SAVE A LIFE FROM STROKE

    Ling K.

    I will put this in my guest book , http://www.leespage.ca/h/gu10.html , for all to read.

    It sounds plausable though I fear most people would be afraid to try it.

    Hello Lee

    Thankyou for your extremely helpful and hasty reply.
    I certainly didn't expect to hear back this soon.
    You have been most helpful and hope you have a great day.
    It is cold and rainy here in Ottawa this morning and the thoughts of warm temps in Mexico this winter make me happy!!

    Thanks again,

    Andrea T. Ottawa, Ontario Canada

    You are welcome.
    I just happened to e on the computer when your first E came in.
    Sorry it has taken me so long to get back with this reply.
    I have been so busy with work,
    TV series - Supernatural, but I finally found time, yesterday, to dig out the map I was telling you about and used it to try out my new scanner.
    The streets I was talking about are on the left and the upper left.
    The left ones will take you up the hill with a fantastic view of the Pacific on the other side of the hill.
    The streets on the top of the map are also steep and give a fantastic view of the town as well as an interesting look into the lives of the locals.
    I pride myself in not getting lost but I got lost several times in Zihu.
    Print out one of the maps of downtown and carry it with you.
    Unfortunately I have never found a map listing the names on the side streets.
    However, when lost, simply head back down the hill.
    Well, your thoughts don’t make me happy.
    They make me jealous.
    After being wiped out by Premier Campbell and his stupid HST, I won’t be going to Mexico this winter.
    So, enjoy, for both of us.

    Hello There
    Just wondering if you would happen to have a DETAILED WALKING MAP of the streets of Zihuatanejo.
    I was there last year and expect to return this year with a friend and a detailed map would sure help.

    Thanks for taking the time.

    Andrea T. Ottawa, Ontario Canada

    REPLY

    Will look in my files.
    I did have a map of downtown.
    I got it from a travel agent.
    They are a nice pocket size, coloured, map, and extremely helpful as the streets in downtown are not laid out in a grid and can be quite confusing.
    This link will give you a rough map.
    I hope this helps.
    I have never been able to find a map that shows more than the downtown core.
    For a really nice walk go North from the map, up some narrow, steep stairs.
    You will get a really good view, and a good work out.

    Hi Lee,
    I was browsing images of Huatulco on the net and landed on your page.
    I really enjoyed reading it and viewing your pictures.
    I am planning a summer vacation in Huatulco next year and was looking for more information on what the locals do.
    As well as finding an affordable hotel.
    Any tips or advice you can give me?
    Did you hire a guide to direct you to Hotel Sabali?
    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks.

    Letty Palm Desert, California USA

    REPLY

    Most of the locals seemed to be at the beach in the day time.
    We weren’t there on the weekend so I can’t tell you if they have an El Centro but I would surprised if they don’t .
    We found the hotel by giving an employee from the beach a ride into town at the end of the day and he directed us to a couple before we found this one.
    It is a little out of the way, on the corner of town, but was well worth it.
    I think any hotel in town would be good as the pricier hotels are along the beaches.
    Other than what is in my website I can’t tell you much as we only stayed 2 nights and then went North to Puerto Angel, which to me is a must see.
    Like all my trips to Mexico I just wing it.
    If you get in late, ask the bus driver where the cheap hotels, `posada economico’, or `hotel pico dinero’, are and then look for a cheaper one the next day.
    My Spanish is very limited but they usually understand if you work with them.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO - ME?
    Isn’t it amazing, all of the Philippines, and all of the U.S. of A. are celebrating my birthday today.
    Now if each one of them would send me a card, with a dollar in it!
    Hell, I would settle for 50 cents.
    I’ll even save them the postage, and the cost of the card - just give them my PayPal address.
    Hey, I can dream, it’s my birthday.
    +++++++++++
    Inspired by letters, from you my readers, I wrote a couple of replies. I was going to put them here for all to read but they became too long so I turned them into articles and posted them.
    `CONTROL YOUR POLITICIAN’ is a must read for anyone who is old enough to vote. You will find it posted at.
    `BareLee’s Page’ is a short history of my website and I posted it at.
    Finally, I took the time to go through the pictures I took while trucking to Winnipeg.
    So, what does this mean for you?
    A page of pictures for you to view, http://www.leespage.ca/h/tra/ca/m/H1.html .
    First page I have put up on my website for a long time, other than humour pages, and yes I have added another baker’s dozen, jokes that is, http://www.leespage.ca/h/humour/humour_7.html .
    Now I have to concentrate on finding a real job.
    I took all the decals off my truck the other day and put it on the Volvo lot.
    So, if you want to buy a Volvo, phone George, (604) 888-5577.

    Till next time.

    Hi Bear,
    You may recall helping me out a while ago by sending me info. on a place where my uncle had been on a ship (can't remember off hand the name) but something like Tuxpan? Would have been able to tell you if I'd been on my own computer.
    However, I am hoping that you may be able to help me trace some of my Canadian relatives. They are in several different places. Names are Scarborough, York, Toronto, London, Jamestown, Middlesex, Boisdale & Bornish. I don't know where you are though and my geography isn't as good as my genealogy.
    Names are MacKinnon, Callaghan, Sarlos, & Schnaider among others if you would care to have a look at my tree.
    http://uistmackinnon.tribalpages.com/tribe/browse?userid=uistmackinnon&view=9&rand=56796750
    What I'm hoping for is if you know anyone with those names would you be kind enough to pass on my email address and webpage above and ask them to have a look to see if they are connected to me.
    My maiden name is MacKinnon and I am from Scotland. The names I'm researching would have had ancestors born in Lanarkshire, Scotland & South Uist, Inverness-shire, Scotland.
    Many thanks if you can help me.

    Anne Marie.

    REPLY
    Just at a rough guess, I would say that, the closest of those towns you mentioned would be about 5,000 Km. from me.
    None of the names you mentioned ring any bells.
    But I will post your query in my Guest Book and see if any of my readers can help.
    Good luck

    Always nice to hear I have viewers.
    I was born the same year as you.
    My mother was born in London.
    My father’s parents were born in Scotland.
    Yet the chances of me going to visit the UK or Europe are pretty slim.
    The wife only wants to go to China.

    Oh gosh!,
    what a confusing website, its a shame too as you've obviously taken the trouble to impart much information.
    Suggestion: Keep it simple, black and white.
    This website was very hard on the eyes.

    REPLY

    Now, I am confused.
    Please elucidate.
    I do strive to keep my website simple.
    Construction wise, I stay away form Frames, Java scrip and anything but basic html, so that it can be view by the oldest computers made.

    Hey there ...
    I am visiting Melaque this summer looking for a suitable place to retire and I am curious about the existence/location of a music store in the Melaque/Manzanillo area.
    I am a musician with a 37 year old custom-made guitar not willing to fly with it, looking to purchase an instrument for use during my visit.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, Gregg S.

    REPLY
    In Melaque, I doubt it.
    However, on the other end of the bay, in Barra De Navidad, possibly down one of the off streets.
    Manzanillo, for sure.
    But don’t ask me where as I don’t know any of those towns well enough to know about music stores. Walmart would probably have a lower end one.
    Retirement, check out La Manzanilla, just an hour North of Melaque.

    PS: I envy you. I would love to retire in that area.

    Not that I am opposed to linking to a blog, I have just never done so.
    However I can't see that we have anything in common, so I'm not sure why you picked my website.
    Your blog seems to be about automotive tips.
    My website covers many topics, but not automotive, that I can recall.

    Hi again:
    Sorry, but there was an MB log dump in Hardy Bay, not only that but there was a booming ground.
    The dump was only about 1/4 to 1/2 mile closer to town than the shop.
    Do you recall the MB shop?
    It was along the edge of HardyBay also and the MB mainline went right through the yard.
    As a matter of fact, when you drove by the dump machine on the government road a highlight was the booming ground/log dump crew outhouse which sat alongside the dump machine.
    The two yellow trucks in the photo belonged to Joe Borer Trucking -- this company hauled for MB along with the 13 company trucks.
    I know all this as I was the shop foreman there from 1969 to 1974.
    There was no MB presence in McNeil in 1974.

    Bill

    REPLY

    `74 is probably the year they built it all, the dry sort, and the offices.
    But I'm sure those trucks were there for the dump before that because I applied for a job there.
    One of the reasons I gave up smoking pot, while working in Pt. Alice, was because I couldn’t remember some things that I knew I should know.
    Bearing in mind that the time period we are talking about here was before I worked at Pt. Alice, I, seem to, recall that the Holberg road crossed the Island Highway and went around the South end of Hardy Bay and up the East side to the `A’ frame dump that was used by O’Connor logging who was hauling for Rayonier, out of Winter Harbour.
    There was a small bridge across a small creek at the South end of Hardy Bay and there were a few houses or mobiles to the East of the bridge. HP, Towing had their home there.
    Looking at a present map I see the road across the South is now called `Godspeed’ and doesn’t connect to Holberg Rd.
    Other than that I don’t recall any buildings in that area.
    I know at one time the bay was full of float homes.
    But they were gone, because of a fire, before my days up there.
    Further South, Near Pt. McNeil, crossing the Island Highway, there is a road called SW Main.
    This is the haul road from the old mine up at Benson Lake.
    Just as it crossed the highway to the South east of the intersection there is a short forked road. (Looking at Google maps here.)
    That I believe is the road into the M&B dry sort. And their offices were there.
    In front of the office they had a huge burl that was written up in the paper as being the world’s largest burl.
    Well I got that part right anyway.
    Just searched it on WebCrawler.
    It didn’t have a roof over it when I took the picture.
    I almost got run over by one of M&B’s trucks because I was standing in the middle of the road trying to take a picture of the truck and it wouldn’t stay in focus.
    Because it was coming at me.
    Duhh.

    Hi:

    The photo I looked at says August 1973.
    I transferred from MB Port Hardy Division in June 1974 and I don't recall any MB logging in the McNeil area before I left. I was involved in move from Hardy to McNeil but that took place after I left.
    The background looks like Hardy Bay at low tide and the road paralelling the shore looks like the road which ran alongside the highway into Hardy and to the dump.

    Bill Van B. Campbell River, B.C. Canada

    REPLY

    I am referring to the picture at. It’s the only line up of trucks in that area that I can recall.
    The road they are on crossed the island Highway. To the west it went up to an old mine. To the East it went past the Mac Blo yard, then curved South along the waters’ edge, where this picture was taken, then curved East over the water on a bridge with an `A’ frame.
    In `74 I drove off highway gravel truck in the evenings for `Port McNeil Enterprises’. We used that road to bring tailings from the old mine to the Mac Bloc yard. The tailings were spread and then covered with asphalt to make a dry sort so the logs could be sorted before being dumped in the water.
    The only dump, I recall, in Port Hardy, was the Rayonier dump, out by `the flats’, which was used by O’Connor logging.
    The two yellow trucks you see in the picture were not M&B but a sub contractor working for M&B.

    Hi:

    Your photo of the loads lined up along the haul road in 1973 Port Hardy fascinated me –

    I was the shop foreman there from 1969 to 1974.

    Bill Van B. Campbell River, B.C. Canada

    REPLY

    Actually, if you are talking about the picture at the top of my West Coast story, that road is the one into the dump at Pt. McNeil.

    The trucks are parked about 200 ft. from the dump.

    Glad you liked it.

    Hi all, from Shanghai

    Friday 2010 Mar. 26

    Serena and Bin went to the dentist.
    Later Serena took me to her hairdresser, where she plays mahjong, and got me a free haircut.
    I have never in my life experienced such a fast haircut, including razor trim.
    I know, there is nothing there to cut but it usually takes longer to cut than it does to put the apron on.

    Saturday 2010 Mar. 27

    Bin went to the dentist to finish her root canal and start her crown.
    Serena went to play Mahjong.

    Sunday 2010 Mar. 28

    We loaded the van, Jing Di's, and headed West.
    East of Hang Zhou, after, about, 2 hours on the freeway, we turned North for an hour and then stopped for lunch in.
    Sorry, can't remember, probably couldn't pronounce it anyway.
    After lunch we went South, and West.
    After skirting Hang Zhou we stopped for the night at Tong Lu.
    We stayed at the Ya Yuan Hotel, in the town of Tong Lu.
    A typical 3 star Chinese hotel.
    About a minus 1 star in Canadian rating. Equivalent to a typical Mexican hotel.
    I find a lot of similarities between Mexico and China.
    One of the commonalities has been, broken glass along the top of walls surrounding property,
    However the newer walls, such as the one that now surrounds the complex where Jing Xian lives, are now topped with electric wires.

    Monday 2010 Mar. 29

    We headed for a town famous for clothing but we missed our turn off from the toll way, yes, they have toll freeways in China, thanks to Jing Di's GPS, why anyone would want one of those things I will never understand, so we ended up in the historic town of Wu Zhen but after checking out the entrance we headed home.
    Admission was $120 Yuan.
    Sorry, no pictures at this time.
    You will have to wait for me to build my web pages.
    Or just visit my China page.
    If you have seen one Chinese town you have seen them all.
    In fact, now, with the new freeways, and larger population, it is hard to tell where one town ends and the next begins.
    Which is something I wanted to tell you about.
    We went up a narrow winding, newly paved, road, through a narrow canyon with a little town of 10 or so houses on every other wide bank of the river.
    As I type this I can hear rain starting. It has been warm and dry for the last five days. Big rain storms the first three days I was here.
    Back to our side trip.
    At the top of the canyon was a long tunnel.
    Two lanes wide, one in each direction, with a pull out on both sides, in the middle of the tunnel.
    There was a row of lights along each side.
    It has to be the longest tunnel I have ever gone through.
    Much longer than the longest one in the Fraser canyon.
    The tunnel ended at a tourist attraction where you climbed a narrow trail up a steep hill, and follow the mountain ridge around the canyon and back down, about 2 hours.
    No, we didn't go.
    Some other people, coming down, told us it was a waste of money. The trail was blocked about 1/2 way up the first hill.

    The reason there are no pictures - I can't download to my computer. I plug the camera in and it turns on but when I start the software it says, `no camera found'. And I've downloaded the latest software.

    Oh well, other things to be doing.

    (Since then I took a bus from PuDong to PuXi
    The tunnel, actually two tunnels, 3 lanes in each direction, curved and curved back, a couple of times, up and down, under the river, must have been twice as long as the one in the mountians.)

    Hi all, from Shanghai

    Friday 2010 Mar. 19
    I sold my trailer.
    (Haven't sold the tractor yet)

    Sunday 2010 Mar. 21

    I jumped on an Air Canada, headed for Shanghai, free with my Aeroplan miles.

    Monday 2010 Mar. 22

    Coming over on the plane, I sat between a man from Seattle and a man from Toronto.
    They were coming to a convention for flooring. Big expo of flooring manufacturers.
    I was telling them about a store that sells outdoor clothing for hikers, bikers, etc.
    Good quality, large sizes, good prices.
    But I couldn't remember the name (Di Ka Shanghai Ti Y) or where it was so I couldn't explain to them how to get there.
    Yesterday, Jing Di, my brother in law, took us to that store.
    It is right across the street from the convention centre.
    Hope they found it OK.

    Tue. Night.

    I was trying to connect to the internet.
    I was using a cable I had bought earlier.
    I had gone into a store and they wanted $10 for a 3 M. cable.
    Jing Mei said, “too much”, and dragged me out of the store.
    At the next store down the street she went in without me and bought a 10M. cable for $5.
    I guess she is right when she tells me they double the price for white customers.
    Movie prices have gone down,
    A few years ago the asking price was $8 to $10.
    Two years ago the prices had dropped to 5 and 7.
    This year they have dropped to 3 and 4.
    From 2 different stores I have acquired 29 movies so far. You'll note I said stores. OK, 1 store and one stall in a market. Street vendors no longer exist.
    Like Vancouver's clean up for the 2010 Whistler Olympics, Shanghai is cleaning up for the 2010 Expo.
    New; subway station, streets, and new inter city freeways.
    Yesterday, Wed., was bright and sunny with no breeze. Serena and I walked down to the spectacle store where I dealt last time.
    The man who had waited on me wasn't there but his brother waited on me.
    Though he had no knowledge of English he examined my eyes and determined a prescription.
    However, that is where the problems began. How to determine the quality of the lenses and the coatings to be applied.
    With quick thinking Serena phoned her sister who then phoned Danny in Vancouver who then used his call card to phone the store I was in.
    After passing the phone back and forth the man, and I, arrived at; low price plastic for my everyday glasses, medium grade plastic for my computer glasses, (Lenses that are integrated with far vision at the top, keyboard, or reading prescription at the bottom, and monitor correction in the middle.) anti glare coating on both pairs, and scratch resistant coating on the computer glasses.
    hen I chose a new pair of frames for the computer glasses so I can keep the old pair as a spare.
    My regular glasses were straightened and the new frames inserted within _ hour. The integrated glasses will take 5 days.
    Total cost $1050.00 Chinese, about $161.58 Canadian. Need I tell you what a saving that is?

    Sat. Morning.

    A big Peach Dragon just went by.
    This is the weekend of the peach Festival.
    According to the radio, many people are demanding their entrance fee be refunded.
    They say the flowers on the trees aren't real.
    Apparently, because of the late spring the trees have not come into bloom yet.
    To save the festival the promoters added fake blossoms to the trees.
    Mmmmm, using helicopters to fly snow in for the Olympic games.
    I wonder if both event use the same promoters?

    Dear Sir

    I am the webmaster, editor, photographer, columnist, & etc. of a website called Bear's Page.
    The main theme of my website is, me, writing, and taking pictures.
    I have a large travel section and most of the pictures taken in Canada, and the USA were taken through the windshield.
    I also have a trucker's section where I have posted a few stories of my days behind the wheel.
    As well I am developing a trucking pictionary where I try to explain the various facets of the trucking industry and illustrate them with photos.
    Like any other website I have a `letters to the editor' section which I call a `guest book'.
    Recently one of my readers asked me, “Why are China Tops, called China Tops?”
    I phoned a couple of the local trailer sales but they didn't know so I wrote to several trailer manufactures and haven't received any replies.
    So, my question is; do you, or any of your readers, know, the origin of the term `China Top'?

    Yours

    Bear

    Hi Bear,

    We will run this in our letters pages and see if we get any input.

    That looks great.  You got some excellent shots of the vehicles. 

    Just wondering, if John or I find some info mistakes and/or spelling mistakes do you want us to let you know?

    Also, once our website is up could we possibly add a link to your page?  I think it’s a great way to help keep our records of where we have been and where we are going.

    You’ll have to come after we’ve opened in the summer to check out the new facility.

    Re: your article of Soledad de Maciel

    La Chole is now the site of a major archaelogical excavation sponsored by the Tourism Dept.

    The new museum is scheduled to open in March 2010. Meanwhile, visitors can park near the gates to the dig and tour it (in Spanish) with a very well-informed local guide named Eric.
