Most people who have used computers for any length of time know about The Weather Channel. But have you noticed their cartoons? Most of the ones they are showing right now have something to do with the beach. I wanted to refer you to them from their website, but apparently you have to download Weather Channel Desktop to even see them. The Weather Channel also has a photo of the day, which you can view through its website.
It does seem we have chosen a vacation type of base.
Now I must make the choice to turn off my computer and get a life :-)
