Down in Galveston and it looks like the Magic is coming back in. Police and fire on the pier. Maybe a medical problem.

Do you mean like they sailed out and then came right back a little while later?

Yes that's what happened. It looked like they took 2 people off on stretchers and transported in ambulances.

Good morning Cupids,

It's warm and beautiful here today. Time to walk the picket line. Yep you heard correctly. Lockheed and the union I'm a member of could not agree on a contract. I knew it would happen this year but I was hoping for something else.

Hope everyone has a great day. Looking forward to a cruise to get away from all of this.

Dave

Dave, I'm really sorry to hear about your strike. Hope they get it resolved quickly!

We grafted a calf yesterday evening, and it might have been the easiest and quickest graft EVER! The cow is a gentle thing that lost a calf that was deformed. The calf is a cute light grey thing with a pure white tail (a result of the neighbor's bull that jumped the fence last summer). We didn't even have to put them into the squeeze chute, we just put them in a small pen and the calf started sucking and the cow never kicked him even once.

Dave - are you actually on strike yet or just protesting? i have a friend who is a flight attendant on AA and they have been picketing this week but they aren't on strike...yet. Just wanting to be heard at this point.

Sue - Love the heart warming stories.

Not much going on here. It's been kind of chilly but it's supposed to get up into the 60's today so not too bad for April. we sure got spoiled when we had 2 weeks of 70's and 80's back in March.

We are actually on strike. It effects the Fort Worth plant and the testing facilities in Pax and Edwards. Over 3600 employees. 93.6% voted to strike.

So a question regarding these group cruises... Can we get on with the group, but pay the interline rate which will most likely end up being cheaper??

Would like to cruise with a group, but also have to be wise with our funds...

Not sure if you can actually book with the group at interline rates. I guess that would be a question for Johna (the agent who handles CC group cruises) but even if you book on your own you would be welcome to chat with us here and join us for on board activities. We have always had a few people who participate with us but weren't actually booked with the group.

Hope an agreement is reached soon -- it is difficult being on strike. Been there with my husband's company quite a while back.

Cruisin Dave...Sorry to hear that you are on strike. I know that is no fun.
My hope is that there will be a speedy resolution so that you can go back to work.

Heidi..Please keep me posted on a possible strike with AA...I am flying with them in June...
