  1. +1 I'd go for a cleaning every month if I could. I also love my dentist.
  2. Fortunately, I am on high ground. Nothing more than a few twigs in the back yard. Lights flickered a few times but never lost power. The electric power company did some extensive tree trimming a month or two ago. No doubt that helped.
  3. I've never experienced a tornado but from what I understand, it sounds like a freight train barreling towards you. Having grown up near very active railroad tracks, I know exactly what a freight train sounds like. Last night, with the heavy rain, winds and slow, rolling thunderstorms, I thought I heard freight trains a dozen times even though I'm 1/2 hour away from the nearest railroad. The severe weather alerts going off on my phone were not helping either.
  4. Hopefully you are still ahead of the DBP! How many days has the pool been open?
  5. Ed Asner passed away at 91. Best known as Lou Grant on 2 different TV shows - "Mary Tyler Moore" and the drama "Lou Grant" - and to the younger generation as Santa Claus in "Elf", I always thought his best role was as a very bitter father in the miniseries "Rich Man, Poor Man" starring a very young Nick Nolte & Peter Strauss
  6. Why not go with both? Just change ties at random times throughout the evening and see if anyone noticed
  7. Found it too!! On my phone, it's on the 3-bar menu to the right of the "Cruise Critic Community" banner. Once I tap on that, its about halfway down the drop-down menu.
  8. I was always told that New York State troopers will not pull you over if your within 10 mph of the speed limit. Thru trial and error, I find this to be mostly true. 😊
  9. Yeah, I can't find it either on the phone. I'll try the laptop later.
  10. Not that you are looking for a serious answer but yeah. Message board forums are a dying breed. Like landline phones, pagers and typewriters. Last cruise I researched, I spent more time on u tube and book of faces than here. Makes me go hum.....😇
  11. There is a PM feature here but it's been disabled as long as I can remember. Me thinks there has been some abuse in the past.
  12. I find tedious lawn work such as lawn mowing, raking (now leaf blowing) and shoveling (now snow blowing) to be therapeutic. Like you, I did it as a kid. And when I worked in an office environment 60-80 hours a week, it was my chance to be outdoors & clear my mind. And it continues to clear my mind today even though the 12+ hour work days are long behind me.
  13. Most of my deleted posts were a result of the post I responded to being deleted. "I swear officer, I did nothing wrong. It's his/her fault". *** points finger *** 😇
  14. I resemble the remark. lol. Lord knows, I get sidetracked all the time. I can't remember the last cruise-related post I made . 😊
  15. Lest we forget the Infamous dead horse & Resurrection. 😁😉😇 In all fairness, Biker19 tends to be one of the more on-point posters and rarely gets sidetracked into the Tomfoolery that erupts from time to time.
  16. Somehow, I've been negilent in wishing Happy 40th anniversary to the most handsome, dashing, kindest & best dressed couple on CC. Here is to 40 more Happy years, Graham & Pauline 🥂🎉🎊
  17. Really, there is no bad way to have bacon. Some are better than others but no bad way. 🙂
  18. Trying to find pizza on Serenade seems to be like a game of Where's Waldo. I wonder if you win a Royal Lanyard if you eventually find it?
  19. Nowadays, the service fee for the privilege of buying a ticket is easily twice that.
  20. I saw Zac Brown Band there around 6 or 8 years ago. Great acoustics, not a bad seat in the house. Concession stands were food trucks parked outside but they had every imaginable cruisine & craft brew under the sun. Highly recommend. We'd said we'd go back some day but never did.
  21. Somewhere in the distance, I think I heard M8 let out a triumphant, Tarzan like yell.
  22. Quite possible that is the area I'm thinking of. A lot of older, Tudor style homes selling for a million $$+
  23. Maybe being the key word. Usually only if they had family living there or would weekend at the shore or AC.
