February 2010 - Paradise Connections Yacht Charters
(Newest posts at bottom of page)

HAPPY HOLIDAYS from Paradise Connections Yacht Charters

February is a month with one of my favorite holidays... GROUNDHOG DAY,  February 2nd, followed by Carrot Cake Day. [Feb 2nd Update: The Prognosticator of Prognosticators, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning and thus proclaimed another SIX WEEKS of winter]

This month is chock-a-block with red-letter days: Thomas Edison's Birthday, Super Bowl XLIV, Abraham Lincoln's Birthday, Valentine's Day, Chinese New Year, Mardi Gras, President's Day, Cherry Pie Day, George Washington's Birthday, the sadly often forgotten International World Thinking Day, Leap Day (but not this year)...

And then there's the month-long events: American Heart Month, Black History Month, Children's Dental Health Month (as well as Pet Oral Health Care Month), Great American Pie Month, International Friendship Month, National Cherry Month, National Embroidery Month, National Grapefruit Month, National Snack Food Month, National Wild Bird Feeding Month, Canned Foods Month, Responsible Pet Owners' Month...

If you can't find a good excuse for a sailing vacation out of those items listed above, then we propose "Book A Yacht Charter with Paradise Connections Month".

January was a very busy month for us with many inquiries and yacht charters...  Busy is GOOD... Let's keep it up!  It's good for us and it is very good for YOU :)

Our Hotel Barges are booking up quickly for their 2010 season, too.  Don't wait too long!
