We did Hawaii for our 10 year anniversary also.  🙂   Pretty popular destination for those I think.  

We did the 15 day Hawaii on Radiance for our 25th anniversary. Hopefully things are better next October 2022 so we can celebrate our 40th anniversary somewhere.

Tortellini soup this evening.  We were just looking for something different. My husband found the recipe online. Was an easy one.

Looks delicious.  Could you post a link to the recipe?

Well we finished celebrating our 50th in Atlantic City.  Our host gave us a great suite and I broke even which  after two days is great for me!  We ate at Morton’s and McCormick and Schmicks.  Tomorrow back to real life🥴

@mets07 Thanks so much, can't wait to try it.

 

Made some progress on video.  Not.  I'm in the same boat as Coralc, I get the codac error but I can hear the birds chirping.  LOL  I think the problem is my computer, I'm having intermittent issues with it freezing up.  IT person thought it was a video card or display or something based on the description, I can't remember what but I know I'm not fixing it.😀  I need to have him over to transfer some software, guess I should add this to my list.

 

Interestingly, I have on my desktop the same type of video of someone's cat.  The difference was, I could see the cat on my screen before I downloaded it to the desktop.

I know this isn't the "tech thread" but does anyone know why I can't view certain videos?  For instance, I can see Graham's but not the ones from the tree cutting.

 

Curiosity is killing the cat.

 

@singinalotCongrats!  Hope all went smoothly today! 

I post photos and video's directly from my phone.

 I too couldn't open those tree cutting links,maybe the video link is to big to download.

I love dinner in the Windjammer.

Agree, we’ve had some of our best dinners there.  I can’t remember now if it was Harmony or Anthem that had a small outdoor seating area if you went out the rear doors of the buffet area.

O class ships don't have any outdoor Windjammer seating as far as I know. I have nir been on Anthem.

I think Anthem has the outdoor seating.   Serenade, jewel and other ships in that class have a really nice outdoor seating rear of WJ.

That is disappointing that some can not see the videos.  I have no problem on my iPad or iPhone, which is usually what I am using.  Out of curiosity, I tried on an old windows 7 computer and a windows 10 computer and saw the problems.  Tried them with Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Edge browsers, and none would display.  
 

The only work around I found was to download the link using the Chrome browser, and play them with VLC player. That is more work than anyone wants.  I guess on future videos, I will upload to YouTube and link it. 
 

Meanwhile, we have some new baby robins in one of the nests.   They haven’t shown much movement, but they will in a couple days.

The second nest is a couple days behind the first one. These should hatch by the end of the week.

LOL. :classic_biggrin: You have night squirrels? :classic_biggrin: We have a different name for them here. 

 

Oh yeah...we get them at night...but fortunately not the ones with stripes.  😉   🦨

 

We also get the masked bandit ones...lots of them.  Worse than the squirrels!!  😮

+1..... Dinner -- we usually go to WJ and I go directly to the stir fry section 😉

 

Mmm...me too.  Love the stir fry in the WJ.  Just have to keep them from dumping too much soy sauce on it.  😉  

 

The "make your own pizza" night is fun too.  🙂

Do you ever put your pineapples in the ground or only in pots?

 

We have to keep them in pots, due to the critters.  Once one starts to get ripe, have to drag the pot into the enclosed courtyard to let it finish without being eaten by them.  😮   

 

If it wasn't for the squirrels and Raccoons...we could plant them in the ground.  The Deer eat up a lot of things too.  Lost several flowering bushes and our Key Lime tree to them.

I'm not sure that is Soy Sauce, what they ask you if you can understand them is do you want it little bit spicy? or  extra spicy ?

 

So I think that is another type of spice  in bottle they are adding, not soy sauce.

How frightening ....

 

I am watching Bucky "the monkey boy" on the roof and scaling the cage structure on our screen enclosure right now. Replacing a torn roof screen panel.  

 

He is 70 years old, and still thinks he is an invincible young man.  Scares the crap out of me, and he is too stubborn to hire it out.

Agree.  We mix it up quite a bit with the WJ, specialty, and MDR.   CK is a favorite on ships that have it also.  

 

Mostly we enjoy the WJ around 8 pm (which is very late for us) after too much happy hour time and yacking in the lounges.  Love the muted lighting, not busy, and can pick and nibble on only what we like, small portions.  No one to give us the "long face" if we don't eat everything on our plate in the regular restaurants (which is always too big of a portion).  Find it much quieter at night than the MDR as well.  

 

Never a wait for a table.  We walk in with our glass of wine, find a table in the back by ourselves, and enjoy.  😉
