Hey ED
 I saw somewhere that you were at the beach with the swimming pigs.
Here is a sad article about what just happened to some of the pigs.

We were there the day after it happened.  I talked to one of the locals about it.  Seven out of the approximately 30 pigs on the island died.  The vet determined that it looked like food poisoning from eating spoiled garbage, but he couldn't be certain.
