I believe the Getty Corporation now owns the property with plans to re-build, but who know when. They do have the building permit. Can view it from our window. Nothing happening that I can see. Clem

I bought mine in a plumbing supply in Phillipsburg. It is made in Franklin,Ma. It has been in for about 3 or 4 years now. We don't have a back-up, but maybe we should. Clem

We also have a condo on the French side. I have removed the electric water heater and replaced it with a tankless type. Our condo is small, so it does great. It only heats when the water runs. It has no storage. I purchased on the island. Clem

If you are looking for a Dishnet installation. I use Carib Tech in Simpson Bay. They are very professional. I have the bill paid automatically from my credit card, so it doesn't matter where you are. You do need a US address and a New York address if you want the local channels( ABC,NBC,CBS). Clem

We use Four Star Cargo out of Miami. Have been using them for years. Very reliable. Google Four Star Cargo and you can find them. Ask them the questions you need answered. It is called Safe Cargo here in St. Maarten. Clem

Glad to hear that Waikiki Beach is not moving to Nettle Bay..They are very loud when they have entertainment. Nettle Bay is presently a very quiet and peaceful place to stay. Would like to see it continue that way. Clem

Found out recently that Waikiki Beach and LaShore Restaurants are building in Nettle Bay next to MiaTi Restaurant. A huge amount of land has been cleared. The beach is all cleaned. Several buildings (wood construction) are going up now. There is also supposed to be 20 villas built there too. Do not know the proposed opening date. The clearing is between Miati Restaurant and the old entranc

Randy, I called St. Martin cable again and they have no plans as of yet to service Nettle Bay Beach Club, although I believe they are in Nettle Bay. I did see another cable company running cables in Sandy ground today. The company is MSR Cable and I called them and they are planning on being in Nettle Bay Beach Club in a few months. They are providing American TV. Have you heard of them?

I have been to the Rasta vegetable garden outside Bellevue. They had a huge vegetable festival the first week of April. It was great. They had freshly grown lettuce, radishes, tomatoes(with a taste), potatoes, and scallions. They ran out by noon that day. I have been back, but all they had were some lettuce. Now they have vegetables on Sunday, but they are from Guadaloupe. They said they will hav

I have Dishnet here and it works well. Just give them a US address when you activate it. Had it for years and no problems. Rastman has (2) dishes and used equipment for sale. That would be the best way to get going. There are installers on the island. Clem

I converted my pool from chlorine to salt a couple years ago. The payback could take quit a few year if you hire someone to do this. I did it myself and I did it for around $1000.00. I love it. Never add chlorine, just turn a knob now and then. It's peace of mind. No headaches putting and testing the chlorine. The pool gives you a silky feeling, you will tan better and it sparkles. It was we

What is it with all these jewelry requiring repairs? Diamonds falling out. Maybe you should try a different jeweler. Maybe I shouldn't say this, but I have been buying here ( DK Gems) for years and never have I had to have anything repaired, replaced or anything. Lucky I guess. Before I would go back several times to the same jeweler for the same repairs, I would move on to a different jewel

Great video. I have seen them take off towards the beach now and then, but have never been there to experience it. It only happens when there is no wind. Much safer to take off over the water than towards the mountains when there is no wind. Clem

Been traveling on AA for years and guess I am very lucky. I have had many changes, but was always notified by e-mail. Never have had to check on any flights for changes. Watch, this will be the first. Clem

Denis, we did learn something here with Paulette's broken knee incident. You should let the ambulance take you to the hospital. They do not have triage here, which you just sit in the waiting room and are taken in in the order you came in the door. We waited 3 hours and she was in alot of pain. By ambulance, you are brought right in and taken care of. There are alot of ambulances on the Fre

I bought a car on the island last year. The dealer got it inspected for me. It is a two year inspection. Getting the plates is easy as long as you go ahead of time there are no lines. I have paid for my registration already and just waiting for them to announce in the paper that the plates are in. Waiting can cost you time. Cars bought will probably not be allowed in the States because the emissi

We have a condo in Nettle Bay Beach Club and have an excellent view of La Belle Creole. I have walked over to La Belle Creole several times in the past year. It is a very deserted and creepy place to go into. You do not know what might be living there. The weather has taken a toll on the property. I would think if anything did come of the property, the existing buildings would probably be torn do

Hi Gert. I had always thought that Uncle Harry's was locaten on a barge also. We had dinner there earlier this year and learned different. We met Uncle Harry there and had quite a conversation with him. The restaurant is actually sitting on top of the bow of the boat used in the movie Speed 11 which portions of which were filmed in Saint Martin. It is not floating. Just alittle tid bit of

We use the Caribbean card all the time and depending on what restaurant, you can get up to $20.00 off the bill. Well worth it. Clem
