How cold does it get in Cuba?  can`t be anything like what we had a couple of nights ago...
the temp went down to minus 5 and I had to get the hot water bottles on the car dashboard to help de-frost the screen.

Have you tried pouring cold water on the outside of the windscreen?

Re: Cuba comes back in from the Cold.

Is the timing of this new openness coinciding with the collapse of the Russian Rouble? If Obama keeps prodding, the boil may burst, but some people might not like the ensuing mess.

Why?

Because it melts ice and doesn't refreeze as quickly as hot / warm water. Weird i know..
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Cuba comes back in from the Cold.

How about "Obama wants to be remembered for something good after his term as president."
The trick is to get to Cuba before MacDonalds and Coke Cola.
Anyone been?

Re: Cuba comes back in from the Cold.

I think the Cuban people are quite smart in the way they've have to make do and mend over the years with their cars, converting old american "gas guzzlers" to run as diesel engines (very inefficiently, but still worked), making their own brake pads (out of old asbestos, which isn't healthy), building entirely new body panels, aswell as using various fuels to keep the cars on the move, very ingenious people, I think that they're going to end up completely spoiled and lose their present make do and mend attitude when the american capitalism floods in...
