  1. I wonder why it took 6 months or more for the mistake to be caught. I work in the check recapture dept. of a bank, and if we key an account number wrong, it's usually caught within a week if a valid (but wrong) acct. number , or by the next day if an invalid acct. number was keyed. One GOOD reason for using your own imprinted deposit slips..the account number is already on it and you're not depending on a human to get it right. Clear, concise writting is also appreciated. (Although in all honesty, probably 99% of the numbers we key in any given month ARE correct the first time.)

    World's oldest mom bears twins

    Congratulations to her but no thank you....it was hard enough keeping up with a toddler when I was in my 30's. Unfortunately the energy of a 2 year old is NOT contagious. I can't even imagine.

    Cruising Alone

    I'd probably go..if I could get my sisters or a friend to go along. I'm on the shy side and I don't think I'd have a very good time alone. My sisters and I take a vacation together, just the 3 of us, every June and have a ball, but we also take a vacation every year with our spouses, either all of us, some of us or just as a couple.
  4. I won $800 and $400 on one quarter slot machine in Laughlin, both within about 1/2 of each other. Needless to say the machine never paid more than a dollar at one time the rest of the time I was there. Also won $500 on a scratch off lottery ticket one time.
  5. The first time we went to Alaska in 2000 we didn't have a balcony. This time, we did and I loved it. There's always something to see, and sometimes it gets pretty windy and chilly on deck. Relaxing in our cabin, or on our own balcony and watching the world go by was very peaceful. However..I'm not sure I'd splurge for one in the Caribbean. There's much more going on out on deck than there was in Alaska. The last time we were in the Caribbean though, we did have a window...which I would do again.
  6. We went to Alaska in 2000 and cruised Glacier Bay...it was awesome. We cruised again a month ago and cruised Tracy Arm, and did a land tour that included Mendenhall Glacier....it also was awesome. The first time we did the land tour first, then the cruise. This time it was just the cruise and I honestly preferred just the cruise. (Didn't have to have seperate luggage for the overnighters in different places for one thing.) We did entirely different land tours this time, and I think we saw a lot more. I'd go back again just because, as others said, there is so much to see. No way does one or two cruises cover it. P.S. This time we did the Yukon Jeep off roading adventure with NCL...it was absolutely worth the being bounced around in a jeep for 20 miles. The 90 miles of scenery on The Yukon Highway is breath taking!! Especially in September..the fall flowers were in bloom, and the mountains were gorgeous!

    Gas prices

    I'm in Cleve-burbs OH, and it's $2.18...I figure by Monday they'll flip the numbers around to $2.81 cuz that's about when I'll need gas again.

    Gas prices

    It was either $2.21 or $2.12 on my way home from work tonight in the Cleve-burbs.(not sure which, but I tend to think probably $2.21)...of course, my fuel gauge is almost on the F...it won't drop to E until the prices shoot back up.

    Alaska in September

    Thanks so much for the "welcome back". I can't say I was as glad to be back to work as the boss was to have me. Ahh well...it's the paychecks that make the cruises possible. (I keep reminding myself.)

    Embarktion

    We've never had a long wait whether it was embarking or disembarking. Our cruise that started Sept. 2, we landed at Sea-Tac airport at 10:30, (28 min. early..imagine THAT!) collected our luggage, put the cruise tags on them, used NCL transfers, arrived at Bell St. Pier, #66 at about 11:50, and was on board, at the buffet enjoying lunch by 12:30. Can't complain about that one bit! Unfortunatly getting off was just as quick, but much more painful. :wink:

    Alaska in September

    We just got back, yesterday, from 7 days in Alaska on the NCL Sun. It was cool, (mid to upper 50's ) but dressing in layers helped. A water repellant jacket or rain coat is almost a must. None of our excursions were cancelled, we did the Whale watch, Wildlife Quest in Juneau, in Stephen's Passage. Saw a lot of whales, and a small island where there were probably 120 sea lions lounging about. It rained for one short bit, but then was just cloudy to very partly sunny. Also did the Lighthouse, Eagle and Totems excursion in Ketchican, and a Yukon Jeep adventure in Skagway. DH and BIL even did the helicopter glacier thing in Skagway. Went up with no problems. D sister and I stayed on the ground and wandered about town and shopped. I really enjoyed having the balconey, this was a first for us, because you had the comfort of your cabin while still being able to see the awesome scenery. We had the door open most of the time...the balconey was protected enough that there was very little wind, and the rain never came in. But like everyone else has said.....the scenery makes it all worth while. Last week the fall flowers had begun to bloom and some of the mountains in the Yukon were just carpeted with gold, red, and purple....just breath taking.

    Daily Dock July 2006

    It was a scortcher here in the Clevelandburbs today also. I think we peaked out at 91 degrees. Predictions are for 90+ for the next couple days also. Take care in the heat everyone, it can be dangerous. Water your plants, and pets.

    Do you tip...

    I always tip. Like others have said, the guy/gal probably only makes minimum wage. Heck, it saves me from having to put on shoes, comb my hair, and go out...well worth the couple bucks.

    Strange News

    On the same wave length (you can't make this stuff up. Since it's late and I couldn't figure out how to start a new thread.) MEDICAL EXAMS 1. A man comes into the ER and yells, "My wife's going to have her baby in the cab!" I grabbed my stuff, rushed out to the cab, lifted the lady's dress, and began to take off her underwear. Suddenly I noticed that there were several cabs ---and I was in the wrong one. Submitted by Dr. Mark MacDonald, San Antonio, TX. 2. At the beginning of my shift I placed a stethoscope on an elderly and slightly deaf female patient's anterior chest wall. "Big breaths," I instructed. "Yes, they used to be," replied the patient. Submitted by Dr. Richard Byrnes, Seattle, WA 3. One day I had to be the bearer of bad news when I told a wife that her husband had died of a massive myocardial infarct. Not more than five minutes later, I heard her reporting to the rest of the family that he had died of a "massive internal fart." Submitted by Dr. Susan Steinberg 4. During a patient's two week follow-up appointment with his cardiologist, he informed me, his doctor, that he was having trouble with one of his medications. "Which one?" I asked. "The patch, the nurse told me to put on a new one every six hours and Now I'm running out of places to put it!" I had him quickly undress and discovered what I hoped I wouldn't see. Yes, the man had over fifty patches on his body! Now, the instructions include removal of the old patch before applying a new one. Submitted by Dr. Rebecca St. Clair, Norfolk, VA 5. While acquainting myself with a new elderly patient, I asked, "How long have you been bedridden?" After a look of complete confusion she answered..."Why, not for about twenty years - when my husband was alive." Submitted by Dr. Steven Swanson, Corvallis, OR 6. I was caring for a woman and asked, "So how's your breakfast this morning?" "It's very good, except for the Kentucky Jelly. I can't seem to get used to the taste" the patient replied. I then asked to see the jelly and the woman produced a foil packet labeled "KY Jelly." Submitted by Dr. Leonard Kransdorf, Detroit, MI 7. A nurse was on duty in the Emergency Room when a young woman with purple hair styled into a punk rocker Mohawk, sporting a variety of tattoos, and wearing strange clothing, entered. It was quickly determined that the patient had acute appendicitis, so she was scheduled for immediate surgery. When she was completely disrobed on the operating table, the staff noticed that her pubic hair had been dyed green, and above it there was a tattoo that read, "Keep off the grass." Once the surgery was completed , the surgeon wrote a short note on the patient's dressing, which said, "Sorry, had to mow the lawn." Submitted by RN no name AND FINALLY!!!................ 8. As a new, young MD doing his residency in OB, I was quite embarrassed when performing female pelvic exams. To cover my embarrassment I had unconsciously formed a habit of whistling softly. The middle-aged lady upon whom I was performing this exam suddenly burst out laughing and further embarrassing me. I looked up from my work and sheepishly said, "I'm sorry. Was I tickling you?" She replied, "No doctor, but the song you were whistling was, "I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Wiener". Dr. wouldn't submit his name
