    Last time I had seafood in the northeast, I gottem at Logan. It wasn't until 40 minutes later when I looked down and everyone of those lobsters had escaped from under my seat. Felt like an idiot having to search through that 767 for runaway lobsters.

    Here is what is taken in April. 6,7,9,12,15,16,17,18,19,22,23,26,28,30

    Here is what is taken in May 3,7,10,14,26,

    Here is what is taken in June 1, 2, 4, (11,admpaul), 20

    dfd701 has selected June 2nd.

    Trust me when I say that any lobster caught at logan airport had been out of the ocean for weeks. no wonder they wanted to escape and get back to the "hood" Thats just like eating steak from an old milk cow thats been put down cause she's too old to produce milk any more. TOUGH !!!!

    Getting off topic here, but I used to striper fish in Boston Harbor just between Logan and Deer Island. The black mussels you dredge up on your anchor right there are the biggest and healthiest in the world, but if you eat one you'd better have your hep series up-to-date. That's because they eat the discharge from those big round pods you see on Deer Island when you're taking off from Logan...the city sewage treatment plant.

    The best seafood I had was a few years ago when I went to New Zealand. My friend took me out deep sea fishing and I managed to catch 4 snappers (first time fishing too!). Dinner was sooo good. There is nothing like catching it fresh and having it on your dinner plate a few hours later.

    You let me know when your going to be in the neighborhood & I'll take you right down to the dock where you can pick your lobsters right out of the crate. Scallop & shrimp season just ended, but the freshest clams in the world are dug right here in the mud surrounding our islands. I've come home and found a fresh dug peck sitting on my porch as a thank you from a patients family. Rumor has it the Halibut are coming back in numbers and there's nothing better than a fresh caught 2" Halibut steak on the grill along with the cold beverage of your choice of course. :-}

    Man you all are making me hungry!!! The last time I eat at Red Lobster I had grilled Halibut. First time I tried it and it want be the last. It was great with hot butter on it. Oh Man! You was talking about not knowing were your seafood come from Alabama has a law that the point of origin must be on the package. I think we are the only state to do that but if you eat at an restrant you don't have a clue.

    An interesting factoid: In the state of Maine where the majority of American Lobsters come from there are NO ,not one Red Lobster restaurants. They know they can't compete with the local lobster shacks.
    Many of you are eating imported Canadian lobsters that are pounded for months until the market needs them. The longer they are held in a pound the tougher the meat.

    According to the FPS at workshop last night PG has not been signed off on yet but expected any day. I bet we miss the 12th opening date predicated.

    We need a prize (and a bump)

    Tell you what I am going to do...

    I have available about 60 miles of rope. All on 1200 foot rolls. Maybe about 70 miles.

    3/8 inch polypropoline. Yellow or black.

    I have been slowly selling this stuff, but for the lucky winner of the pool, you get a roll!

    (100.00 value, really more but I have discounted to move it)

    I will even ship it to you.

    WHAT A PRIZE!

    Thats a 1200 foot long spool of rope! FREE!

    Ok, I am tired, but what the heck, it adds something to the pool!

    Someone's been putting in fibre optic cable as I guessing this is where rope come from. Contractors can only use it once.

    That may have been the intent - but this stuff has never been used. Brand new in the box.

    It did come from a major telecom provider that I do a lot of business with.... I wondered why they had so much.

    All good choices. Come to think of it, mine could use replacing as well.

    I hate to say this, but late May or early June is looking awfully good right now.

    Should I post the dates taken and available again? I asked myself if the pool was for program guidance or opening date? I think I'll ask one of Obama's choices for the bench.
