    Thanks. Yes, i'm aware. It's really good after swimming/snorkeling or even just laying in the sun for a few hours. Has lots of electrolytes and vitamins. Plus there aren't any coconuts that grow here in Maryland, so while i'm there I want to enjoy them while i can! haha

    from the rules...........Use smiley faces, emoticons or other indicators of intent liberally. One of the major flaws of Internet communication is the lack of vocal inflections and visual indications of emotion, intent, sarcasm, etc. Be clear what you mean. Many problems occur because someone does not pick up on the sarcasm or otherwise get the joke.

    Paul an Uzi, what are you thinking. A stick of dynamite would be much better

    Always use the lessons you have been taught in life

    Why don't you email/contact Kooymans Hardware store to see if they carry them and pick one up while on the island.

    Dynamite may be a little too much, but I like the Uzi idea. I think that would work, Paul and Bill, you two could hold them while I shoot them open. Sounds like a winner to me Let me know where you'll be so we can make arrangements!

    Aquaman, thanks for the suggestion. I looked last time I was there but will try to contact them before I go. Although if those tools Paul and Bill are willing to hold them while I use their Uzi method, I will no longer require a tool to open them.

    Z......... i got this reply from a friend of mine on facebook. she lives year round on aruba.

    Hi Andrea- I saw on the aruba.com bb a question about machetes and coconuts- I don't think they will let him in with a machete, but more important: he needs to check with the hotel to see if they have a problem with the red palm wevel. If they do, he can't drink the water from the coconut. They inject a venom in the top of the tree to kill the wevel that taints the coco water and will make him sick. Hope this helps!
