  1. Back in ancient Egypt is was customary that if the Pharaoh passed gas, all of the courtiers would do the same. It was called . . . wait for it . . . toot-in-common (groan!)
  2. It's the same as the raised bars on the F and J keys on the computer keyboard. They're to help touch typists keep on the right key. (Never used them myself, I'm a hunt-and-peck typist who watches every keystroke.)
  3. I had a situation very similar to this on an Amtrak train out of NYC. A woman was talking loudly and continually on her cell phone. It was a real "stream of consciousness" spiel - everything that happened was talked about, loudly. Everyone in the car could hear her. After over an hour of this, enough people complained that the conductor talked to her and asked her to knock it off. So she told her phone partner all about how she was being told to be quiet.
  4. Sounds like a plan. We too have greatly expanded our drink repertoire. We used to drink bourbon exclusively. Now we have multiple gins (different gins for different drinks) multiple rums (including 15 year old for sipping), multiple scotches, vodka, brandy, various liqueurs and, of course, multiple bourbons since, at heart, we're still bourbon snobs.
  5. Many years ago, when our kids were still young, we took them to Disney World from our home in NC. While we were sitting in Liberty Square a girl came up to our daughter and said "Hi!". It was a classmate from her school in Connecticut where we used to live before moving to NC.
  6. I was at Sandals in Jamaica. At dinner one night all the tables for two were in use so we asked the couple behind us if they would care to share a table for four. They agreed. Turns out they were from Wake Forest, NC, just like we were. Saw them around town after returning home, too.
  7. I haven't had that sort of trouble but here's my problem. With the premium package my wife and I get to try all sorts of liquors and liqueurs for which we wouldn't normally pay the price. Like single malt scotch and pricey digestifs. So now I have to buy single malts for me and B&B and/or Benedictine for my wife. 😄
  8. We were booked in YC for our first MSC cruise in October 2020 cruise but cancelled it in June, before final payment, because I didn't feel that the cruise would ever happen. Even if it did sail, we didn't think it would be a good idea to cruise so soon. Having read this thread, along with others like it, I doubt whether we will consider MSC in the future. Customer service can be a big plus or an even bigger minus.
  9. Two men, one older and one young, were nailing siding onto a house. The older man watched the young man take a nail from his pouch, look at it, shake his head and throw the nail away. He pulled out another nail, looked at it, nodded and pounded it in. He did that several times, throwing away several nails. The older man finally asked "Why did you throw those nails away?" The young man replied "They were defective. The heads were on the wrong end!" The older man replied "Doh! You idiot! Those nails are for the OTHER side of the house!"
  10. Well, I bit the bullet yesterday and cancelled my Mid-October Caribbean cruise. Final payment is coming up and I have no confidence that the cruise will take place. I don't want to have the money tied up waiting for a refund or a FCC. My TA and I looked into possible similar cruises for next year. All we found were $1000 to $1500 more expensive than what I had for this year booked (YC room). No sale, so I cancelled.
  11. I stopped using shampoo years ago. Too many chemicals. I prefer real poo.
