  Well put Rotorhead. Ive been here three years full-time now, and your right about how you “start noticing the little annoying things”. I too, hope to see improvements, but “when” seems to have always ...

  @vicanuck I just moved away from STX after 22 years. I am very happy. It's kind of like boat ownership. The two happiest days of your life are the day you buy your house on st croix and the day you se...

  It will be interesting to see in a few months whether the electorate reelects Trump or instead opts for socialism and racial based politics.

  VI has already excise tax, import tax and self employment tax and equivalent of federal income tax. The tax revenue stays here and it is a nice chunk of change while the local government has no respon...

  @rotorhead Your comments are always spot on. I'm glad you're still contributing even though you've smartly moved on. We won't be far behind.
