 Thank you, so beautiful and so talented. I bet the kids loved them.

 

DH, being from the printing industry, assumes your daughter made the design and had it printed on a "shoes" printer ?

 

Actually she does them by hand with markers.  Although I have seen her do artful craft work before, this surprised me.  The ideas she came up with and then to use permanent markers with little room for error.

Turns out acidity is an Israeli regulation, mainly due to the fact that we have many manufacturers and "fake" or "mixed" oil was found among them.

 

There are some regions in Greece which also demand the acidity to be displayed, and also in California.

I had heard of the "fakes" so I tried some California oil.  It was ok but not satisfying  for dipping. I tried the Colavita based on research and reviews. I found that there is the North American Olive Oil Association. They test for purity and quality.  Check them out on Wikipedia.  Colavita is EVOO, first cold press and to me meets the taste test.  If I don’t like the taste straight up from the bottle, I don’t want it even for cooking.

 

@derorim lol o the nice label test.  The bottle looks so good it is are to get rid of it when it’s empty.  I feel like melting candles down it like the hold days!

Enjoy, G&P,

 

I can safely assume that the water is a "bit" cold? 😉

Lots of people are in the sea.

We are just lying down relaxing

How are you feeling today?

I am feeling good.  Not 100% yet but moving closer.  No concerns.  Thanks for asking.  Btw,  as soon as I got up I drank some water! 😂   The Grandson is doing better too!

I've been following, on and off, the opening ceremony of the Olympics [boy, truly amazing, but loooong].

 

So saddened to see the Olympic stadium empty.... 

 

No viewers/spectators/public.

 

Nasty virus 😢

It is nice to see y’all out enjoying life everyday.  It is like a never ending vacation.  It looks like you live in a nice location.  I like the tent idea.

On a much smaller level if we become Diamond on the first week of a B2B will we be able to have Diamond status on the second week?

 

Generally, it is easy to manage this.  On the first cruise, have a chat with the Loyalty Ambassador.  S/he can expedite the switch.

 
 
Pls. see above in red @Merion_Mom 's reply to your "conundrum". She's much more experienced than me.

It is lovely here.

I'm pleased to hear you are a lot better today.

Crispy Brussels sprouts are like candy.  I sometimes add a little balsamic with the olive oil, salt & pepper. 

Try radishes some time. They are really good and surprisingly, don’t taste like you’d expect.

I love radishes.     We have grown them in the past, didn't this year.   I always sliced my radishes and put in salads or would simply grab and eat.  never cooked them, will have to try that.

FYI.  Serenade has arrived in Juneau.

Shame no one is doing a live review.   Hopefully the next sailing.   I would love to see some photos and hear all about their trip.    We were scheduled for a Alaska cruise this past June and was very sad it was cancelled.

One of my Grandsons is about to be on PBS Arkansas.  He won a writing contest.  They are supposed to animate the story he wrote.  The Great Team vs Robo.

That is awesome.    I hope you are recording the show.      How fun for him to see his book animated.

I think the 1800 drones forming the earth though stole the show above the stadium in the dark night with all the lights on the drones. Amazing on how they can do that.

yes, very sad and strange to see an empty stadium.      

is there any particular athlete that you will be rooting for?

I used to love watching Michael Phelps swim and I like to see Simone Biles, Gymnanist, but I also like to see the newbies win

I love radishes too. The only problem is when I grow them I can’t find enough people to eat them.  Last year I grew a type called Breakfast Radishes. We have a Mexican food truck that slices them up and serves them with tacos. They taste good with steak tacos.  We can still grow them. It only takes about 30 days to mature.

 

@jagsfan I have never thought of including the radishes.  I need to try.

I missed it.  I will see if there is a replay later.  It has been awhile since I have seen a drone show like that but remember it was a big wow factor.

Yes, it works - thank you!   He always writes nice articles.   Serenade is one of our favorite ships.    Love the size and the atmosphere and always feel at home as soon as we walk on her.    I cannot imagine what it feels like with only 630 passengers.   I think we would love it but at the same time miss having all the people to watch and meet.
