  1. HI all! Welcome to the new folks. Wow, some great losses!! Congrats! Rob ~ looks like there will be 3 of us leaving at the same time on the 28th! I'm on the Pearl. A CC friend was on the Escape that had the problem wind but on the same night he won $15K at the casino!! DIana ~ I can't resist those little hollow chocolate eggs they have out well before Easter! Having 2 lunches out this week so wonder how that'll show up on the scales! See you all Thursdayish. BTW we have had signs of Spring here like Robins & Red Winged Blackbirds. Just wish we had the temps to match!🌷 ~ Jo ~ 😊
  2. Hi all! Anita Latte ~ I was just coming on the thread to see if anybody else was watching & here you are! What a nice description of the new season. I think I'm really going to like it, unfamiliar as it is, with only Nina & Christian who I've ever seen before. I like the way the designers were so supportive of the one who had trouble. Those sure are some different sized models!! Looking forward to next week & more discussion here. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  3. HI all! Late signing in as usual but nothing good to report! I was up 0.2 lbs & think I can blame it on chocolate eggs. Thursday night I was really bad when I ate almost a whole bag of chips cooked in avocado oil sprinkled with sea salt, so yummy! Not even going to mention what that did to my weight Friday morning!! Looks like a lot of us are cruising in April!! I'm on the Pearl TA April 28th. Rob which cruise are you on on the same day please? Hoping to be better behaved next week! Time is running out for losing a few pounds before my cruise! Have a nice weekend. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  4. HI all! Bob ~ following! Hope you & Holli have a great time on the Ruby. Looking forward to hearing all about it. Bon voyage!! ~ Jo ~ 😊
  5. HI all! TiogaCruiser ~ you're welcome. If you Google the village you'll see it goes back to 1086! Our guide told us ITV used it for the outside shots of DA because of its old ways eg lack of wires to hide. I am so looking forward to the Downton Abbey movie in September! I loved that show. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  6. Hi all! sid_9169 ~ WTG booking a 50th birthday celebration cruise! I look forward to your live from as I'll be doing the ABC Islands in Feb 2020 on Epic if I don't change my mind. Already pencilled your cruise in! ~ Jo ~ 😊
  7. HI all! Rose ~ great your DH is doing well enough to return to work. Nice of you to take your GD on a cruise. Has she cruised before? My cruise is a 13 day TA from New York to Amsterdam on the Pearl April 28th. I've been to some of the stops but not the 2 in Ireland. My newfound, through Ancestry DNA, cousin once removed, will meet me in Dublin & take the private excursion with my group. She lives in Glasgow but is from here in Ontario where we met up once this summer. Cache Trekker ~ sounds like a nice cruise too! Yes, I think we have to be prepared for rain. Will you go to Keukenhof Garden in Amsterdam? I loved Ponta Delgada in the Azores, is that your stop? Have a nice weekend. I'm off to Town for a McD Kid's Meal then a movie. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  8. Hi all! I did the Highclere Castle tour including Bampton with Brit Movie Tours coming up 7 years ago in May. The tour was great with scenes from Downton Abbey playing on the tv on the bus. Bampton is a cute little Town & the place where the Church & square scenes were shot. ~ Jo ~😊
  9. Hi all! Nobody watching All Stars? I've really enjoyed this season. I see Project Runway starts on the 14th on Bravo I think it is. Will you be watching? ~ Jo ~ 😊
  10. HI all! Belle ~ thanks for the poem & have a great cruise! I was surprised that I was down 0.4 lbs as I'd just had 3 plates of Chinese buffet the day before! A lot of it was veggies though.πŸ˜‰ I also went to see Jersey Boys & the seats were on the balcony with quite a few stairs leading up to it so maybe that balanced off the excess food. Rose ~ I'm on my next cruise the week after yours. Which one are you doing? A friend & I went to see "The Upside" yesterday. If you get a chance, go see it, it's really funny & is based on a true story. Have a nice weekend. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  11. Hi all! mitsugirly ~ so sorry to hear of your losses. I was just to a funeral on Saturday & am waiting to hear when my BF is having her husband's. Poor guy had cancer & could only drink Boost or others fluids for the past 6 years! I can't even imagine that!! So happy to hear you're going on Freedom of the Seas & having a bigger cabin. Is it just the 3 of you this time or are some kids coming too? Last time I was on that ship was Nov 2010 so look forward to seeing any changes. Which ports are you going to please? My next cruise is a TA at the end of April on NCL Pearl. You've been on that ship haven't you? Think Spring!!🌷 ~ Jo ~ 😊
  12. HI all! Belle ~ glad to hear you had a fun time with friends. Jan ~ thanks so much for your reply on last week's thread. Great loss again but sorry for the way it happened. Some good losses this week though some not through ideal conditions. I guess I'm the only gainer but it was only 0.4 lbs so I'm not too upset. Better luck next time eh?!! Hope everyone's having a nice weekend. It snowed here AGAIN yesterday!! SO looking forward to Spring!!🌷 ~ Jo ~ 😊
  13. HI all! mitsugirly ~ looking forward to your Freedom of the Seas cruise review! I liked Freedom so much (like Breeze) I did it twice! Had a promenade cabin both times & really liked it with its window & seat overlooking the promenade. Have a nice weekend. Tired of winter yet?!! ~ Jo ~ 😊
  14. Hi all! bbtbear ~ sounds like your cruise is off to a great start! I had a cove balcony on the Breeze & really liked it as did the many people I showed it to. The Dream was my first Carnival ship & I really enjoyed it. Have a great cruise! ~ Jo ~ 😊
  15. Hi all! Thanks for the welcome back. Belle ~ nice ditty as usual & food for thought. My cruise is 10 weeks away so I thought if I lost 2 lbs a week I could be 20 lbs lighter but can I do it?!! Jan ~ how long did it take you to lose your 20 lbs? I'm down 1.4 lbs so that's a start. I am now the same weight I was in July 2015 but still 20 lbs more than when I retired in 2007. Good for you walkers! There's a new walking group in our area but they go at 9:00 am on Sat mornings & I'm not setting the alarm & walking in the freezing cold for anything. I'm a fair weather walker if at all!πŸ˜‰ Have a nice weekend. ~ Jo ~ 😊
