P'haps I should have said more

I should have said, "You're a thief." Loudly. But I was so shocked at what I saw, all that came out was, "You're not going to buy it? Wow!"

A woman broke off a piece of muffin in the open display at the grocery store, [more]

Re: Istanbul Hotels

IIRC, doesn't Viking offer a "Extend the vacation" hotel stay before (and after) the actual voyage?

After.

That would be Venice. We don't really care about extending to stay in Venice.

Re: 7 Things Camping Can Teach You About Saving

The only thing camping ever taught me is how much I hate camping. :-)


I love camping! As long as there is a thermostat where I sleep. And a feather pillow. And indoor plumbing. And no bugs.

Istanbul Hotels

We are flying into Istanbul a few days prior to meeting our ship for a Viking Mediterranean cruise next Spring.

Anyone have any suggestions for good hotels in Istanbul? From what I've read, hotels there are really into great service and [more]

Re: An Open Letter

I'm guessing, in the context of the story and everything else, the motorcycle is a Harley?

Why do you guess that? Did she mention the optional plow attachment or something?

Re: But at least you're not racist.

I abhor the idea of slavery, and I try to treat everyone as equals, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't love my home state and the entire South in general. I have so many friends who live below the Mason/Dixon who aren't racist, they aren't [more]

Yikes! You have had some serious trials of late, RDW. So sorry for your loss and all the work you had to put in, too. And then to have a retinal tear!
Enjoy the cocooning. Hope you don't need to leave the house too often and can rest and [more]

Re: Hey, AM!

Saw today that Carnival is building a 6,600 passenger ship. I was on the Carnival Dream (3,600 capacity) in 2013 and its behemoth size drove me to distraction. Had to look at a map every time we left the cabin. Cannot imagine 6,000+. Never [more]

Re: Ancestry

I hate the new format, too, Nancy, so I switched back to Classic in settings. I hope if they get enough complaints (and there seem to be quite a few on the site) they'll adjust this beta version before making a permanent switch.
