  1. Spot on! Well said! Two thumbs up! CV...
  2. Porridge (the real name for Oatmeal) may be eaten in many guises but a true Scot would add a little salt. p.s. Did Sallie celebrate World Porridge Day on October 10...?
  3. Cublet, snap! Been there; Done that! We, too, have had the capers versus kippers breakfast. When ordering, we now say ‘kippers the fish’ to avoid any misunderstanding. Ambrosia of the gods! BTW, the ‘repeating’ is part of the enjoyment. If it gets to be too much, the prescription is an Old Speckled. p.s. Maybe the West Country accent causes a problem...
  4. Gotta luv a scouser... (For those of a non UK persuasion, please consult a dictionary if necessary)
  5. British food...aah! Gourmet! Believe this was posted previously but it’s worth reposting as the idea breakfast. After that, it’s time to considered that most favourite meal...kippers! Mouth watering thought, isn’t it? Enjoy... p.s. Some might consider this post ‘humourous’...
  6. Hot tea! Mmmmm! Is there really any other kind? Just add scones, strawberry jam and Cornish clotted cream. No doubt the good people from Devon will disagree but...CV...
  7. SteveH2508, bulls eye! Would take a while to join you at your Local in person so shall nip downstairs and pour myself a pint and join you ‘in spirit’. Cheers!
  8. My wife excelled at skeet shooting on Carnival’s Mardi Gras during our cruise in 1992. I learned never to argue with a lady who held a loaded shotgun...
  9. Doing a “Covid cleanout” and came across our TV licence from 1968. Good old ‘Auntie’ BBC...
  10. The ‘Mardi Gras’ was originally the ‘Empress of Canada’. Sailed the ‘Empress of Canada’ from Liverpool to Montreal in 1969. The ship handled the North Atlantic very well. Sailed the ‘Mardi Gras’ as well but in the early 1990’s. The ship was basically the same. In 1972, Carnival, apparently, did not have the financial resources to redesign the funnel emblem so they changed the colours from green and white to red and blue and rounded the ‘blue’ circle to eliminate the forward point. Ah! memories. CV...
  11. A non-cruising comment...Was seconded to a financial institution based at 2 Broadway. Remember that the floors were uneven and my desk had to be situated across ‘the bump’ in the floor. Thankfully my next posting was in a more modern building in Chicago. From the ‘Big Apple’ to the ‘Windy Apple’. CV...
  12. Sailed in May 1963 from Southampton to New York on the ss United States on my way to University in Boston. The crossing took four and a half days sailing at 30 plus knots irrespective of the weather. Great experience. CV...
  13. Excellent! Wish we were closer so we could join you for a toast. Enjoy! CV...
