The Girls–Donna and Ella

This NASA picture of Cyclone Donna, on the left, and newly minted Cyclone Ella, on the right, has kinda put the kibosh on heading to Fiji – which is inconveniently located directly between the swirls in this picture. Donna is the strongest cyclone ever recorded in May in this area. While a cyclone can very occasionally happen in any month in the South Pacific, having two past the end of the season simultaneously is pretty rare. We really thought that this weekend would give us a window to get moving on the passage. But with Ella just getting going plus an unexpected Low showing up in the weather models in the Tasman next Tuesday it is looking more like we will be waiting in New Zealand for a while longer.

While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau.
D. Trump
Sitting here on the boat gives me plenty of time to browse the news. I just caught the latest where Trump fired the FBI Director Comey. From his letter firing Comey (snippet above) it sounds like he is firing Comey because he knows that any director who does not investigate him must be tainted and incompetent.
