Costa Cruises?

Got an email from them recently. A lot of typical itineraries, but this one seemed pretty unique:

Re: Got My Global Entry

New to me. But then I haven't flown into Canada since 1993 (Calgary) for a cosmic ray conference.

The officer led me to believe there are other places too (outside of Canada), but I didn't pursue it too far.

Re: Lincoln was wrong

That is interesting.

One of the things they did teach us was that one weakness of the Confederacy was the supremacy of the states, so they could pull their troops away from the Confederate Army to defend their individual state if they [more]

Re: How To Make A Great Hamburger

FWIW, my approach to burgers is similar. I generally do them thin because I (and the family) don't like the charcoal taste of burned food, but we want them cooked through. If it's thick you can only get the center done if the outside is black (like [more]

Re: Religious Liberty question

I would rather the various denominations dry-up and go away. Forever.

Can you contribute anything other than invectives and insults? If not you aren't going to worth listening to.

Re: How To Make A Great Hamburger

I don't like my buns toasted. Dried bread. Not for me.

If I could I'd want mine still warm from the baking oven. Nothin' like bread that fresh. :-)

Re: Got My Global Entry

We just got back from a trip to NYC and Toronto. Interesting that in Toronto we went through TSA and customs BEFORE boarding. US personnel. Apparently we have this in several countries (including Canada). So we arrived in PHX and just walked off the [more]

Re: Alstroemeria - on music and minds

And the "Hey, maybe that's why people thought they were talking to God" theory. I will just leave hanging there.

It may not have been commonplace, but we do know today that people think god is speaking to them. A well-known [more]

FWIW, I mindlessly (always dangerous!) clicked the update on my Win7 desktop. After your post I opened it and it seems fine. FWIW.

Re: Lincoln was wrong

I have long thought of the Civil War as the Second (Not Quite Successful) American Revolution.

They didn't teach it in school, but it sorta was. It was the forceful (and arguably illegal) assertion of central federal power. I'm not [more]

Glad all is well.

Re: Mistbox

I think your definition of "deal with it" is different than mine. Going from an AC house to an AC car to an AC work space, etc is not dealing with it. It's avoiding it, IMHO.

Avoidance is a form of dealing with it. [more]

Lincoln was wrong

Very interesting interview with an author. Lincoln's famous Gettysburg Address was actually incorrect, and in fact the Confederacy was correct in what the Founders intended (at least in terms of structure). In 1776 the Declaration never said anything [more]

Re: Mistbox

Yes, those are outrageous. Massive water wasters. They should be banned here.

It's hot. Deal with it. Most of us mostly stay inside for three months out of the year, and then we can come out and do stuff for 9 months.

Re: A Statement by Bree Newsome

I didn't say she wasn't right, just that she had no right. There's a difference.

I agree with her, but she is now at the mercy of whatever judge she gets.

She did not have the "right" to do it. I applaud her, but she clearly broke the law.

I wish her all the best...hopefully just a wrist-slap. We shall see.

Re: Mistbox

I agree with the others. If you live someplace humid it won't work. We have evap coolers in Phoenix now (mostly older homes). They don't work during our humid season (which is about to begin).

And I swear I'm not trying to annoy Albaby. I know Bernie annoys him because he hasn't "put in the work". Personally, I don't care about that. I care about what the guy says and believes.
