    Yes 4 posters in this thread have that color with some really beautiful furniture. Turned out my painter just painted the walls that color, ceiling white. For such a big price I assumed he was painting everything, but I'm not so sure what it needed, havent been there yet. Brownish grey, it goes with everything. Lol it's very agreeable. 



    Thx 🙏🏻  Yes It sounds quite agreeable to me!  It’s already in the short list.

    There is a data center opening every 3 days, needs the power of 80 homes to run. Blame A1 gearing up.

    Sorry, off topic but…Was it you that talked about paint colors and a specific shade of gray that was color of the year or something to that effect?  DW is talking about re painting some rooms & a gray is in the conversation.  I cannot find that page in here for the life of me!

    I hope you are bringing them luck for a win.  They are in the driver’s seat for a playoff spot.  All they have to do is win their final 3, but all three are good teams. 

    🤞🏻 Hope we can sneak in the playoffs.  Playoff hockey is awesome.  Those 3 wins won’t come easy though.  Not too long ago I was thinking they had no shot so pleasantly surprised now.

    Spending the afternoon at the ball park. Thank goodness the Jays play in a dome. The high today is 45F.  First pitch is at 3:07. 


    I was wishing we had a dome for our home opener.  Snow squalls and baseball just don’t go together.  We’re headed to the Pens game later.  Bruins are always tough.

    This was our first VV cruise and we liked it for the most part. If the price is much cheaper than Royal we would go back. More thoughts on this later. 




    This status is only good until the end of this year and they are no longer status matching unless they change it again. I know the were revamping their loyalty program, but not sure if it has come out yet or not.



    They did release the new loyalty program recently.  I haven’t looked at it that closely yet bc I also status matched in 2023 and have DBE through the end of 2024.  There’s 3 levels now.  Status match is now only to the new (middle) level - Blue instead of DBE. 😤


    Here’s the link…

    I do admit that you had to be a contortionist to squeeze through some places.  

    One small cave we went in, we found this guy trying to squeeze through this opening. 



    He did make it through, but not without help.  We opted to go back out the way we came in. 

    thinking about going through that small crack, even the other one you posted that you went through, gives me anxiety 😬

    Unfortunately, they do not have pet insurance.   Now the question becomes if they can get some going forward.  Or, do they charge higher rates for pre existing conditions.



    Unfortunately I think it will be very difficult to find a pet insurance policy that will cover pre-x and even more difficult to find at a decent rate.

    I have watched most of his videos from the start which were really interesting as he learned how to sail and had some interesting adventures. He figured out by having beautiful women sail with him he would pick up viewers which he did. It was ok for a while until he started sensationalizing his video with T n A which turned me off. I will say he goes to some amazing places but I much rather prefer to watch Colin McRae’s (of Below Deck Sailing fame) YT channel Sailing Parlay Revial.

    agree - i follow parlay revival on instagram.

    I don't think that I have ever been in the pool or hot tub on a ship.

    I can count on 1 hand my times.  I’ve been known to sit on the side, drink in hand, with my feet in the water in the solarium.  Hair has been wet once LOL It was on Mariner.  I remember the day.  


    Mostly limited to short periods NEAR the pool.  My complexion doesn’t lend well to extended direct sun exposure.

    . I wonder if Virgin made a strategic decision to emphasize onboard activities versus big swimming pools like other lines do.


    Wouldn’t surprise me if it was.

    Surprised at Buffalo trading Diggs to Houston , I thought they would get more than a second round pick. My brother in law and husband of my wife’s best friend both have season tickets, I am looking forward to discussing this at end  of next month when we visit .

    I think his relationship with Josh Allen was strained.  I don’t think it helped him to be acting like a diva demanding the ball and yelling at teammates on the sidelines.  On paper it’s a great pickup for Houston but I’d be worried a bit about his attitude disrupting the team.

    I'm glad I found this review.  You have a similar background to me as I'm primarily a Royal Caribbean cruiser, but discovered an amazing deal that got me to book Scarlet Lady.  And not just a short one like this one, but a major 14 night transatlantic crossing.  I also plan to do a live thread and will definitely tag you for hints and suggestions as well as referring back to this thread.

    Awesome!  Sounds like a plan!  I'd love to do a TA one day.

    My bourbon collection is for the benefit of my DS2, who lives 4 minutes away.  Today when I was buying Vodka I stumbled upon this Elijah Craig that was part of a "limited availability" drop.  He said it was a good find, so I bought it. I put it with the other bourbons I have in my cabinet, but he said he'll buy this one from me so he can have it at his house to drink with his bourbon buddies.  Can't blame him!



    Good find!  👍🏻

    My wife and I were eating lunch out on the street at Russian River, and I kept seeing people carrying 2 or 3 cases of beer out, one even had like 6 on a hand cart.  Asked the waitress and she said, oh yeah that's our Pliny the Elder.  I had one and was hooked.  Left with two cases of it.  Now every time we go down there I always bring a couple cases back home.  Can't find it in any store here either.  

    Lol …so you didn’t even know about the beer yet and you were there!?  amazing story.  love it.

    Oh boy, I'm with ya on the beer thing.  About 8-9 years ago we made our first trip to Sonoma Valley CA.  It was my first time trying Pliny the Elder at Russian River and I fell in love with craft IPAs.

    OMG That’s one of my Unicorn beers.  Just don’t see it out here.  Took me years to get my hands on heady topper & focal banger by Alchemist.
