  1. I have heard that in foreign post offices you should watch the clerk affix the stamps.
  2. The problem is there are lying unvaccinated SOB's that will board the ship. Cruises can restart tomorrow for all I care. I live 1,000 miles from the ocean, a sick ship, if such there be, will not be dumping patients in hospitals near me. If my prediction of 2,000,000 covid deaths in the USA by October 15, 2021 is going to prove accurate, we need to average about 7,500 deaths per day. Something has to go dreadfully wrong.
  3. I know you are kidding, Sir PMP, but I am surprised how often world cruise bloggers report picking up chips or other snacks in port.
  4. Holland America had an All American Hamburger at no additional charge on their 24 hour room service menu at one time. Smoked salmon, chocolate chip cookies, a triple decker club sandwich and more were also available. I never ordered room service. I do not know if that menu continued to be available up until the pandemic and I have no clue what may be available post pandemic.
  5. I use lissie's suggestion. I bought the lightest backpack that Target had. Durable nylon, washable, dries quickly, it has served me well for 25 years.
  6. My state was the first (I think) to legalize gay marriage in the US. It was a boom time for caterers and liberal clergy.
  7. I appreciate lions, tigers, pumas, jaguars and other wild cats in their native habitats. These beasts the rest of appreciate are an introduced invasive species.
  8. Anyone have a link to a live thread from that cruise?
  9. Or think back to the USA. A husband could have his wife committed with little effort until what? 1950? 1960? 1970? I believe it is harder now to get a judge's order.
  10. I hate to get involved in this thread and hate to quote the Washington Post, since the fact based media irritates half the population, but their covid tracker has the seven day average of cases up 8.2% for the USA as a whole while deaths are down 0.5% and hospitalizations are down 0.3%. My state is doing worse. I have no reason to think that the USA will not see the same surge that Europe is seeing. I think the Post's covid info is not behind a firewall: https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/national/coronavirus-us-cases-deaths/
  11. The unofficial state sandwiches of Iowa the pork tenderloins and Maid-Rites®. I am not a fan of either. The Maid-Rite is a loose ground beef sandwich that is inferior to a homemade sloppy joe. I suspect that most pork tenderloin sandwiches are made not from tenderloins, but from tenderized pork loins. It is hard to believe I do not like something that is breaded and deep fat fried. The Iowa pork tenderloin is similar to Wiener Schnitzel, except it is not veal and it is not deep fried in butter. I'm not a fan of Wiener Schnitzel, either. We enjoyed an all white dinner of scallops, p
  12. "P&O Cruises, which is part of the Carnival group, will run trips on two ships this summer." https://www.bbc.com/news/business-56416855
  13. Kazu's tale of ice grippers and ice picks to clean up after the dogs shows that we're warming up in the midwest before she is. The snow at my county park has melted and revealed every last thing the dogs and deer left behind throughout the winter. If you are not enjoying leftover corn beef and cabbage tonight, you did not cook enough last night. The random song playing on my iPod when I turned off the car: Summertime Blues by Eddie Cochran.
  14. I will encourage Mrs. Whogo to go heavy on the onions and potatoes and light on the cabbage, not that she will pay any attention again this year. Nothing against cabbage, I'm happy to eat it, but carrots and potatoes are so much better with the corned beef. The next song on my iPods random play: O-o-h Child by The Five Stairsteps.
