  1. Yesterday
  2. Hi Everyone! Weather is actually chilly this morning...it may make it up to 70 today, and down to 53 for a low. It will stay in the 70's until next Monday and then should be going up into the 80s which looks like it will be nice for the 4th of July. We may have a thunderstorm once or twice, but it seems too cool with low dew-point right now for a storm, so it should be nice for awhile. Nothing exciting to talk about here. Will start back on therapy on July 11th. Don't want to give up even when it's causing more pain...need to get the muscles and nerves working right so I can walk a ways, and also stand long enough to visit with someone, or do some cooking that takes awhile, and hopefully travel again. My biggest hope. Andi, Welcome back! So glad your flight went well and you had a wonderful time with your sister and daughters. So nice to be able to see your sister after 5 years...that's a long time. It must have been a wonderful reunion. Sorry the weather turned out to be so hot and sticky...that is not my favorite kind of weather, for sure. I remember traveling through Florida one year in September, years back, and it was sooo hot and sticky that you could shower and then still get sticky right away. That low temp of 48 when you got home must have felt like air conditioning. Hope you get some nice summer like weather...not too hot and not too cold. It should start warming up here soon. July is usually our hottest month, but things are really different this year, so we'll see. The soup turned out really good, and is just right for our chilly days here now. I made a huge pot so will have to freeze some. We have a great freezing method with the Food Saver. It takes the air out of the freezing and the food mostly tastes like you just made it. It works great for chili or my calico beans, etc. Jan...glad you got some good results with Verizon after all that trouble getting installed. Hope they will give you something nice for all the trouble...maybe a reduced price? Congratulations to David on his retirement...hope all went well at the luncheon. You may get some cooler weather if ours decides to come up your way. It is nice to not use the AC...and open the windows. Was going to look into the Celebrity Edge...we do like Celebrity. Still need to get in shape to travel, but I can always hope...and keep working on it. Jim...hope all is well and you are getting some help for your eyes. Mary Lou...missing you...hope all is well. Hi to all Cruise Crazies...Ray, Miranda, Jim, Kevin, Debbie, Larry, and all others...it's nice to be able to keep up with you all on FB.
  3. @OddNMacabre What writing project do you have in mind? I'm interested.

  4. HAPPY MONDAY, CRAZIES! BACK FROM GALVESTON - THE MEAN OLD TROPICAL STORM WENT JUST ENOUGH EAST THAT OUR FLIGHT TOOK OFF WITHOUT PROBLEM AND THERE WAS JUST MAINLY CLOUDS AND WIND FOR OUR FIRST DAY. BY FRIDAY THE SKY WAS CLEAR AND GOT SOME NICE SUN BY THE POOL AND BEACH. WE HAD A GREAT TIME; I HAD NOT SEEN MY SISTER IN OVER 5 YEARS AND IT WAS SO NICE TO BE THERE WITH MY DAUGHTERS AS WELL. THE WEATHER WAS CRAZY HOT AND HUMID, THOUGH. 109 HEAT INDEX WITH ALL THAT GULF MOIST AIR BLOWING AROUND. BY NIGHTFALL YOU WERE JUST STICKY ALL OVER! WE SAW SOME CRUISE SHIPS IN PORT - CARNIVAL, AND THE LIBERTY OF THE SEAS...I VERY MUCH WANTED TO JUST HOP ABOARD, LOL! MIRANDA - THE 90S IS EVEN A LITTLE TOO WARM FOR ME; I LIKE UPPER 80S, THOUGH! BUT FOR YOUR SAKE I HOPE IT COOLS DOWN A BIT. I ALSO HAVE NOT HEARD ANY BIG NEWS OUT OF CELEBRITY OTHER THAN THE EDGE BUT WILL KEEP MY EARS PERKED UP! FIRST ONE TO FIND OUT - PLEASE ALERT THE REST OF US! JAN - YOUR FIOS EXPERIENCE SOUNDS HORRIFIC! IS THIS A NEW TECHNOLOGY? MAYBE THEY DON'T HAVE A GOOD INSTALLATION ROUTINE, ETC. IN PLACE YET? THAT POOR GUY - WHAT A NIGHTMARE FOR HIM AS WELL. EVERY MAJOR CABLE/INTERNET CARRIER I KNOW OF IS A COMPLETE DISASTER: VERIZON, ATT, DIRECTV, LOCAL CABLE, DISH - I HAVE HEARD HORROR STORIES ABOUT ALL OF THEM; YOU WOULD THINK THEY WOULD BE FALLING ALL OVER EACH OTHER TO PROVIDE BETTER SERVICE THAN THE "NEXT GUY". SHARI - WHEN I ARRIVED HOME LAST NIGHT WE WERE IN THE MIDST OF A RECORD LOW FOR THE EVENING: 48 DEGREES. I HATED IT, HA! BUT HOPEFULLY WE WILL WARM UP A BIT AS THE WEEK PROGRESSES. I AM IN TOWN NOW UNTIL OUR NORWAY CRUISE SO WOULD APPRECIATE SOME NICE, SUMMER-LIKE WEATHER! HOPE YOUR VEGETABLE SOUP TURNED OUT GOOD. I LOVE SOUP - NO MATTER WHAT SEASON OR WHAT MEAL, LOL. WELL - FINALLY GOT SIGNED UP FOR A MEDICARE PART B SUPPLEMENT PLAN; GLAD THAT MONTHS-LONG JOURNEY IS OVER! NOW ALL I HAVE LEFT IS TO PICK A DRUG PLAN....TOMORROW. BUT - WAS ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MY FIRST 65+DISCOUNT, WHEN RENEWING OUR ZOO MEMBERSHIP, HA! HOPE EVERYONE IS HAVING A GREAT WEEK!
  5. I read an article about how acupuncture helps in improving digestion and state of living. I’ve been suffering from digestive issues since I’m traveling and eating irregularly most of the time. I’m not interested in conventional medicinal methods. I’ve tried a lot of them and it only gave me a short term relief. Including tablets, diets, tonics and lot more.Although I took an appointment for an acupuncture session this week, I want to know the better options in acupuncture services nearby Mississauga. Is acupuncture a continuing process? Will I be able to travel anytime during my sessions?

  7. Hi Everyone...had a really nice Saturday and today is nice and quiet here. Weather has cooled off but with that came the rain...we did need it though. Jan...hope we can send you some cooler weather...you may get the rain too, though. Congratulations to David. Miranda...hope you get some nice weather there also. Have to go and make a pot of vegetable beef soup now...will try and be back later. Ray...hope you are getting a chance to relax a little this weekend. Andi...hope you're having a nice trip. Hi to all Cruise Crazies!

  14. Good morning and Happy Weekend! Miranda - Big news from Celebrity? I attended a meeting with a Celebrity rep a few weeks ago, and the big news was about the Celebrity Edge coming coming in December 2018? Could that be it? Other news was Millennium's recent makeover last month. Other than that, I'm stumped. When you find out something different, let me know, because I can't #CruiseChat on Wednesday afternoon. Just 35 days until our group cruise - I cannot wait to meet you all. Wow - 80's and 90's! I never thought it got that warm in your part of the world. Should we expect this in late July when we visit Amsterdam? Shari - Please send some of that cool, comfortable weather our way! Andi - Verizon FIOS is is a fiber optic network for receiving digital cable, wifi and phone service. We had been having trouble with TV and wifi connections, so we thought we'd give FIOS a try. The installation process turned out to be an ordeal, with the tech arriving at 9:30 am and not finishing until 10 pm. He encountered so many obstacles along the way, with the line on the street, inability to get the signal to the house, running the cable to the TV from the basement crawl space, and the poor tech was not getting much tech support. At one point, I saw the guy running out and climbing a ladder 3 times in order to configure codes and whatnot. At around 6 or 7 pm, I was really regretting our decision to switch. Finally, at 9:30 pm, everything was up and running. So far, everything is working well, and internet is much faster and stronger than cable, and I'm happy about that. I've complained to Verizon about the whole installation process, the fact that 1 guy was doing the work of 2 people, and the fact that I myself had to assist in getting the wire up through the basement because they wouldn't send help. Still waiting for some feedback. Gotta run ... today I'm hosting lunch at a restaurant with the family in honor of David's retirement. Have a great day!

  20. SATURDAY, JUNE 24TH Good morning Crazies, Wow we're having a break from a heatwave. Way too hot over 30 degrees Celsius, that is late 80's early 90's and I don't like that at all. So now it cooled down a little, but on Monday we'll get back to Tropical again. But as the office is mostly cold, there's no place I'd rather be . Only 35 days until our Group Cruise. I am so looking forward to it, really. And so is Martina. We're gonna have a great time! Jan, only two more weeks for your next one. Andi I'm so sorry I missed your Birthday, so a belate congratulations and I hope you had a great day. Next Tuesday there will be an announcement #CruiseChat regarding Celebrity Cruises. I won't be able to read it at that time, because it will be at 7 pm. For me that is in the middle of the night. Anyone know what the big news will be? So the 'real' #CruiseChat is rescheduled to Wednesday at 1 pm and of course that is a good time for me. But I don't want to wait that long. So if anyone knows, I'd really like to know. I am not curious at all . Hope you all have a great weekend and stay cool! Miranda
