  1. Thanks for all the daily news, have not heard if there will be a shortage of wine here, so will make enquiries.  

    @smitty34877 thanks for sharing the photos of Camilla, what does she weigh now?

    It was good to have a Fort Lauderdale Sail away today, and hear the tooting.

    The day is very changeable weatherwise, clouds, occasional rain, now some feeble sunshine.Temperature 15 C.

    Appreciate  seeing all the photos of Barcelona,....another port we have not visited.

    Stay safe, take care everyone.

  2. Thanks for all the daily news, photos and humour.

    @bdrcoleHappy Birthday, your lovely cat knows that the new chair is comfortable.

    We have been to Huatulco, on the Statendam 2009., San Diego to Fort Lauderdale return to San Diego, 28 splendid days.  We stayed at a hotel opposite the pier in San Diego so that we could wake early to watch the ship arrive on 30th October,  she was late, arriving into port at 8.15 am,  disembarkation was delayed until 1100 am , boarding was delayed until 1 pm.  During that cruise there were three different Captains, Harm-Jan Arnold, Acting Captain Paul Spaas, then Captain John Mercer.

    @rafinmd sorry that your  PSA is elevated, but good that you can now see the Radiologist on the 29th.

    It's another pleasant sunny spring day, temperature 18 C.

    Stay safe, take care everyone.

    I didn’t notice  yesterday, and KD just called the dining room to check - the answer is no; next time I’m near the Pinnacle I will ask there. ..  is Lady Grey a New Zealand thing.  KD said in the South Pacific they have noni tea (just in case you are interested..)


    Thanks for your reply.

    The Lady Grey tea we buy is blended and packed by Twinings in the UK. 

    Curious if any brand of Lady Grey is available on HAL.

    Today my full size electric wheelchair arrives. I’m most excited about it’s elevator seat which will allow me to navigate my kitchen without having to stand and hang on to the counter and do everything one-handed. A special thanks goes to the foundation “Team Gleason” who provided a grant for that, because Medicare doesn’t consider it a necessity. Team Gleason is out of New Orleans and was started by Steve Gleason, a former New Orleans Saints football player who has ALS. They also provided the recorder that is allowing me to bank my voice.


    Great news that you have the new wheelchair, hope it helps make life easier for you.

    The recorder is a good idea.
