So now I have the chance. Ladies and gentlemen it is march. It is march. You. May be thinking of a ghetto in fact on my FaceBook page -- in my email here at WB and because the only emails I receive a whole bar. Dear mr. Berle new Asian formula make you bigger man. The only emails I get -- all don't know Hollywood have gotten that information from the web sites I visit but. Anyway. And anyway here's my question to you. Where -- -- winter. It just -- by the way spare -- the calls that bitch at me for whining about winter. I have an intrinsic right to complain about winter I was born here. I've lived here all but three years of my life. I was at the Buffalo Sabres Philadelphia Flyers Stanley Cup finals games three and four at the auditorium in buffalo. I was at the bill's comeback game in the rich product box I lived during the blizzard of 77 and was year. I was here during the tragic days of the 22 caliber killer. OK I was here all those times. So my pedigree allows -- to bitch about the weather certain aspects of my family tree by the way I can Trace back to 1820. One of my great great great -- in fact owned a large tracts of land it in what is now the heart of the village of Williams real. -- he held on to that land. I would be like Carl Paladino and mark Croce. All rolled up in the one. Except I'd be even bigger able. Critically. Are you guys are on the observed mark and Carl catalog -- but I just that and have some fun anyway. So -- winter has been rather shall we say unpleasant. For army. Because. I tend to be more solid guy John you're the -- sure want to and -- You sure can get a break that we don't -- out of the same play. -- I hang out of the you know forty something divorced bars in you hang out at the him in my twenties and really life -- and all that bad bars right. That's pretty much how that goes yeah I mean women in your bars generally speaking are. Never married never pregnant. Maybe looking for a husband to be looking for good time. Women in my places are pre planning funeral. Where where was yes so either way it. I -- -- if you are pre planning a funeral right I apologize if I brought bad memory your percent of the -- got your ups and arms. -- you know what I realized at any given time during the show people are going withdrawal kinds of different things in life. And you know sometimes they state by sometimes as I say things like our crew would have somebody really is doing that today and if you look at completed. So. We are wondering I. Wondering where is your dream that got away now some people have the resources to travel everywhere all the time no matter where they want ago. I mean to go to Frick and Bora Bora. They'll go to Australia. Delta's go anywhere because they've got the money it looks good. But there's is irreplaceable. Roland you know that is other than trouble -- it is time. Time time time. -- and ignore -- all right hazy shade of winter time and time so. Wanna know from you guys because I wanted to -- happy ending two day in honor of my heritage. I didn't want to ask you what you -- as Q where is a big deal get away. Let's just got seven days. I have to tell you something. You know the presses. -- well a lot of things depressed but. Cats and one word. These things all the -- What depresses me when I occasion and I talked to somebody and I say sellout how long. -- and they say all we just came down for four days. I'm thinking to myself what is get this story one they have trembling. One day a relaxing. One day of kind of relaxing in the packaging and then another day of traveling that is hardly what I'd call a get away. If you're gonna get away as so -- Given herself seven days. And I know what you think. We're -- radio stars we don't have that kind of money. Well what most of the expense with the traveling is going to be with your airfares anyway depending on where you're. When you get there the hotels are pretty expensive. -- I would also recommend by the way and I never thought I would say it's an all inclusive. -- -- do your due diligence before you ago. I'll say that again find out what other people who have been and where you are going to have to say about your destination before you book. Because. I won't tell you were -- -- go because I accept your horror stories as well except with you guys because I don't know you. I would have to take responsibility for what you say and this way at least I can prove it was I've got all the documentation. I will tell you would not go ever again. No disrespect intended to my Brothers and sisters who -- Dominican. In fact very lovely lady whose -- -- attempt Dominican but anyway. She's not -- but anyway. Issue. But in any event. Here. I will never. Ever ever -- could offer me a free trip. With a couple of bisexual passions that I would not ago. Dominican Republic I will lot on the displayed in my opinion of the Dominican Republic. Beat Dominican Republic is not ready for prime time. It's trying really hard. But the Dominican Republic is kind of like you mail in about 1975. There's something that will be something eventually. But it ain't ready yet. Ladies and gentlemen the place I went in the Dominican Republic and again I don't lawyers but approve everything answered. The place I -- was called breathless. Not restless breathless. And all I can say is the slow and lives it will take your breath away. Well let's just say this much is far as this joint in the Dominican Republic. Not only did it take my breath away in the worst possible way. It also may be extremely. It'll. For a very long period of time in fact I still have not recovered and probably never will. From the food borne illness which I picked up there huddling elect picked it up there it's the only place. -- only for three days. Do not ago. To breathless in the Dominican Republic don't do it. -- take your breath away -- hard. Yeah and you'll also used deficits and for the next six months in your life. Need I go further on that one well. I mean I haven't been that Ross is my trip to Greece. Oops too much -- so anyway it was -- knows it was one night. I'm kidding to make the guy's laptop. OK don't go to the Dominican Republic they're not ready for terrorists -- sorry there enough. Stroll. That was I gotta tell you that was. All the traveling I've ever done. In if you listen to this show you know that your humble host enjoys traveling I enjoyed meeting people from other cultures. I enjoy. Picking up Spanish when I can't. And frankly if I may say so myself. I'm not afraid to use languages even if I barely know them. And I picked them up I pick up languages like like debt. So it's not some. Racist -- well he's a gringo and he's in the Dominican Republic and he just doesn't like the fact there we speak Spanish nothing could be further from the truth the people I'd like. The Dominican people I really liked. But I also recognized the logistical. Idiocy. Of that resort. Let's just Davis what do we got there. By the time we got there within about 72 hours I would say roughly 75%. Of the people who checked in with us left. That's how bad atlas. There was no food -- very little food. And the reason I got sick was. I think what they did was they transported food in an un refrigerated truck from one resort to another. They threw it on the griddle. And -- against my better judgment I -- it. And I gotta tell my body has never been the same sentence and that's not an exaggeration it knocked me on my. It's really that out so don't go there. That's my advice don't go there now. I don't want specifics from you guys get back and defend if I ever had due in court anything ever percent. I don't want your specifics of if you wanna say I would never go to -- again because that's fine but just don't names specific places in Kent true. -- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah are laughing at something. What do you what am I gonna make -- got a real joke is that which are waiting for our right that's nothing to laugh about so. Let's go to traffic right now -- these young -- which -- in the next room. Our -- give me all -- a look so how's traffic -- Right now I found out why these guys are laughing so some guy called and said I hang out at euphemism for homosexual bars. -- -- -- -- Is that. It is right. Don't. Watch. No I don't really don't -- if I did it shouldn't if I was in the best career -- for. I'll be an element everything else -- the -- well he's. But again I can't fake that. But we are talking about vacations so there room for wiggle. All right so if you had a bad experience. Don't tell the name of the hotel but where did you had a bad experience because I will never ever ever set foot on the Dominican Republic again ever. -- ever. Now. On the other hand it did you have a secret little spot that you go. That is your place the place that is almost like your home away from home. And I know people who will swear by it Turks and caicos. I know people who swear by see mark. Or other places in the Caribbean. I went to Turks and caicos once I would go back again it was expensive. The weather sucked. And why bother. You know it would just it wasn't a good time it was like hey look it's right geez I -- -- had a whole lot cheaper. And then there was the time it went into the restaurant in Turks and caicos. I'll never forget that the place was called the banana boat. And there was this guy Heidi -- and sandals he was trimming his freaking phone sales. He was training his hotels in the restaurant. Anybody remember the scene of The Sopranos where Ralph was doing it with Janice in the bed and she said. Oh and Ralph said what's an edit it to a friendly fire and shrapnel.

How far a drive is it in terms of minutes from the airport into which you fly in Costa Rica. To where you ultimately stayed -- -- Diego. That's the bad part I usually am in San Jose street and that about a four and a half hour bus ride. Okay that's -- Don't you have the option it's just chartering a plane and just flying over Kazaa a but I do. You can tell from candidate to an airport -- on which much cloture but opted to -- Internet at the very Meyer or you have to handle the scandal at a time which we get that. Com it they only have one plane that comes in the morning and -- you go without eating. And I'm seeing that the mall is still about an hour by road away from where you eventually state. -- -- about having a kid that got fixed wings are pretty choppers that it is chopper you from the airport right to the resort to right through where you're up. I had that kind of money I would -- I wouldn't be a budget travelers. Why you may see your -- that whole day traveling -- -- when -- -- the Jamaica I want to get to the resort is fast as humanly possible.

Customs. Going through customs and that either taking the shovel or waiting for the plane to command to take you. To -- grill from the airport which into a fifteen minutes the Basra it's 45 at least. You know to start the vacation vacation is too rare to waste. Well we did stay in campaign and -- their first language is like a little town of San Jose felt.
