I want to give a big shout out to the folks at Roanoke Computer Doctors in Roanoke, Virginia. While sailing off the coast of Virginia Beach recently, all of a sudden my computer just locked up. I thought seriously about throwing it over the side of the boat, but common sense told me I didn’t want to lose the data I had stored on it. (I did actually consider using an old desktop as an anchor once, but a friend told me it would kill the fishes!) Not sure exactly what the problem was – probably a virus, though he mentioned something about the system being corrupted – but they got my computer back up and running again without losing any of my important files.
If you’re in the beautiful Roanoke, Virginia area of the U.S. and need any type of computer repair service, I highly recommend them.
As fall approaches, thoughts turn to the holidays and colder weather. If you’re considering a winter vacation to a warmer climate, check out this slideshow from Yachting Magazine.
These are charters available in the Bahamas and Caribbean.

Hello, my name is Jonathan Yachting and I love yachts. Well, to be honest, I love boating. I don’t actually own a yacht (yet)!
Like most of us, I have been fascinated with the lives of the rich and famous since I was a small child. I used to camp out on the porch waiting for Marc Anthony to show up with my million-dollar check. And while that level of lifestyle has avoided me, at least to date, my passion for the finer things has continued to grow over the years. Yachts would have to be near the pinnacle of success symbols. I remember browsing the Robb Report looking at fancy boats and fancy cars and fancy homes and fancy watches, always wondering “Why not me?” The obsession for wealth subsided, but the passion for life on the water has grown.
Therefore, please enjoy watching The Top 10 Most Expensive Yachts in the World – 2014.
My personal favorite is # 9, “Seven Seas” (pictured) which belongs to Stephen Spielberg.
