Sorry the Casino wasn’t friendlier. At least you had a good time. Better luck next time.....

Ann, I see people doing those things all the time. There are also people that push the buttons with alternating hands.

Hope all have a very comfortable holiday long weekend.

An early good morning all from Palmdale Ca. Got up early cause I just couldn’t sleep anymore. Later today, Holli & I will head to Riverside to help her sister and Hubby celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. Tomorrow it’s back to work as scheduled.

Take care all and have a great Sunday.....

Drive safely as there all weirdos out on the road now. Never remember seeing so many police chases as what we have had lately.

Want to share something with you all, my long time cruising friends. This is so weird and I was really taken aback. As you may or may not know, usually I keep a spreadsheet for everyone who is on a particular cruise. It has names, home towns and states, dining arrangements and things that they may want to participate in like a Meet and Greet or Slot Pull.
So here is a response I just got from a fellow passenger on a Asia trip in 2020. Following their question is my response back to them. What do you think I may have written back to them. I am really pretty upset by this right now.


What do you plan on doing with your "spreadsheet" information? I find these non-CC "lists" of passengers inappropriate for a number of reasons, to include privacy. And, CC recently admonished one collector of lists for acquiring and keeping for years the information on passengers/CC members.



I do nothing with the lists outside of CC. I only volunteer to keep a running list for the information of those on that particular cruise. It is nice to see what states others are from and if there may ever be a possibility of sharing a Dining table or tours. I am sorry if you find it inappropriate and since you feel that way, please also feel free not to share any information about yourself as I see you have not. I realize there are very mean and cruel people in this world but trust me, I would have more time if I did not keep the lists for several cruises at a time. This is not done out of any inappropriate intentions on my part at all. Only done with the best intentions to share information.

If the majority of people on this thread feel the same way as you, I will delete the spreadsheet.

I would say nuts to him. Spreadsheets are a useful tool that only assist the roll call as a whole. He can choose to participate or not. When I make my spreadsheets, I lock them t be viewable to only those who have agreed to participate. When the cruise is over, I delete access rights to everyone and then I delete the spreadsheets. I keep some emails of those who I know I will cruise with in the future but nobody else.....

Thanks Bob for the validation. I pretty much operate the same way you do. I am sure I will get over this uneasy feeling very soon.

I saw that. One of the most amazing places I've ever been to. Being a big fan of Elvis Presley I remember when I visited it that Elvis did a fund raiser for it way back. Amazing to see that oil still leaking out of the sunken Arizona battleship. Hope you both get to visit it Bob.
