    I know what's going on and that Hugo Chavez is moving to be a dictator, but I don't talk politics online with strangers, especially not with that attitude. If you want to continue the conversion feel free to use my PM or email and not this thread. And anyway, you must really care what I think if you took the time to address me and write all the above.

    I've met people who are forced to allow any homeless person that walks by to live with them just because there are extra bedrooms in the house not being used. I've met people who have had houses taken away and give to others just because it was vacation house and not something they lived in all the time.
    this is socialism after all

    So, are there any links to his photographs (one's he's made himself, rather than photographs of him) out there?

    Save Hugo Chavez for the soapbox, please.

    Harry was no great shakes as a photographer.

    A colleague of mine owns a camera shop in NJ where Harry bought most of his gear in the '70's and through the '90's. He also processed Harry's film. Just snapshots of average quality. That is what I heard first-hand, but I've never actually seen a print.

    For those not blessed with friends from the Islands, de TING is overproof rum, preferably Barbadian or Jamaican. I had to go and pour myself a glass to celebrate his birthday.

    So it's quizz time!

    Does any one know the difference between white rum and dark rum?

    Where is the oldest rum distillery in the world.

    I know because my father managed a large rum refinery and I spent my youth in it's lab, and I'm just back with two bottles of the world's best.

    Is the difference the aging of the rum in old whisky barrels? All still spirits are clear when they're first made, I think.

    No, the better refineries have their own cooperage facilities and replace older barrels as they become damaged.
    The colour of the rum depends on the number of drops of caramel colouring. Put in too much?- remove it with activated carbon.
    White rum sometimes designates single distilled which means less of the headache causing impurities (mostly fusel oil) are separated in the still. You can see this stuff coming off thick as tar about halfway up the fractionating column

    I was thinking of something else that's aged in old whisky barrels then...congnac, perhaps?

    I'll be sure to remember that from now on when I go out drinking in seedy waterfront bars. Waking up on a Whaling Ship out at Sea is bad enough without having to deal with a raging hangover.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Whisky is sometimes aged in old cognac barrels, not that that has anything to do with Harry Belafonte or his photography, as far as I know.

    Did you know that creme of tartar comes from the inside of old wine barrels?
