Mary and I have finally gotten around to updating our website. Guess what! Most of the content can now be hosted elsewhere. So please choose from the top menu what you would like to see. Some articles will remain here, but most of our current happeings will be posted elsewhere.
Articles on Cruising in Mexico, The Gold Coast Cruisers Guide, Barra Lagoon Waypoints, Barra Town Map, and Net Controllers "Cheat Sheet" are now located under the "Sailing/Mexico" menu item above.
You can access our Facebook, Google+, Strava (for bicycling), LinkedIn (Bill's CV), Flickr (where we're putting Photos in addition to Facebook), and YouTube (for Videos) all in the above Menu. Just hover over "Bill" for Bill's links, hover over "Mary" for Mary's links, and Photos or Videos to go to Flickr or YouTube.
We were hired in August 2014 to do a Commercial for Facebook! It's only 45 seconds long, but it took a full 10 hour day to shoot.
Here's the end product: Mary is in the opening scene, on the right, putting on her helmet. I'm in a later scene drinking from my water bottle (Look for the bright Yellow Jersey). We're also throughout the video (e.g. 2 and 3 seconds in, center stange during the ride briefing).
Mary and I payed extras in a commercial for Tuxton China in 2013. Here's the directors cut version. We're at the table in the back.
Hi folks - yes, it's true. We had a great 6+ years and 25,000+ miles on board Raptor Dance, but it's time to move on.
She's listed for sale with Dick May in Alameda California. We originally bought her from Dick when we had her built back in 2000.
You can see her listing here on Yachtworld.
If you buy her, we know she'll treat you well!
Like many Americans, Mary and I (Bill) have been in a constant struggle to maintain a healthy weight and manage my cholesterol and blood pressure - Mary's BP and Cholesterol were OK. Over they years we've tried all the diets and while we did achieve short term results, nothing worked over the long term.
If you remember way back in 2007, when the Next Food Network Star program was actually mostly about food and cooking, Mary and I made these audition videos just for fun. We submitted them and never heard a word. Go figure!
