Terry,

It's a great system ..... if it moves it gets photographed and uploaded.
It's extremely reassuring when we are on our travels as we one app gives us live feeds from all cameras and PB tells us for each property what has been happening over the last 24 hours. Only key cameras trigger an ftp upload but all can be seen online and all record full video and archives to a NAS cloud system up to around 2 years before it deletes .....

eg

Ok, I just googled salad cream.
Now I know the history and it was quite an interesting diversion to read about it.

Now I am going to google fairy cakes and pigeons milk. Perhaps we shall request it for tea on Silversea?

Spins.....the 'pigeons' milk is Carnation evaporated condensed tin stuff....I think the pigeon term may have been my grandparents take on it!!
Fairy cakes are just small individual basic sponge cakes which can be served up in various ways.....maybe a predecessor to the cup cake?

Good to see Mysty home safe and in one piece!

Good television viewing beckons this eve with the sons of Diana documentary speaking out on the 20th Anniversary of her passing.

Just came from Tops supermarket and no salad cream. Before ordering on-line, I'll try Aldi's next time. A bit out of my way but Aldi's brings stuff usually not found in US supermarkets.

Just make your first try egg sandwiches ie hard boiled eggs through the slicer both ways and mashed up with a little salt and the salad cream and some cress added if you can. Perhaps a layer of very thin cucumber.

And wonderful with waxy potatos as a potato salad.

Thanks Jeff, I love cole slaw (hence salad cream need ) but don't like eggs. I was forced to eat them as a child and have refused to do so ever since. I know this is weird, but I only eat them in cakes, or otherwise disguised. I'm letting on a best kept secret!!

Appreciate this great added background and details about this technology from Jeff. Fascinating!! Might be a nice item to have, especially when we are traveling. Very interesting picture examples.

THANKS for sharing! Enjoy! Terry in Ohio

Super loved so different many parts of the Caribbean in 2015!!! See more details and lots of great visual samples/examples at the link of "Barbados: Our Pix's, Experiences!":

Thanks Terry.

Coolers, why does nature keep all the best stuff for itself?

I have always wanted to see the Northern Lights at least once before I pop my cloggs. In an ideal world Whisper or Shadow would wend its way up to the Northenmost part of Norway for a couple of weeks between November and February and park up for a week or so and every night we'd either be drunk or observing the Northern Lights - or even better - BOTH. A two week party parked up sounds wonderful.

P&O go up there but it sounds so dire. I think they even charge you to do a poo. Those boats sound seedy. And the Hurtigruten people go up there ... but it just doesn't sound right. A lot of clanking and smells. Or you can fly up there and spend all day looking at your toes getting frostbite and going bankrupt on booze and sandwich prices and boredom. Hug a Huskey isnt a whole day tour.

Why doesn't SB or SS .. or even dare I say SD ... do something and capture this market or is it simply because their boats have to be elsewhere? Or is it that there isn't a market and it's just me and wifey who wants to do it?
