  1. Have you tried the straight cut chips in the blue bag from Aldi? I reckon they are the best frozen chips I've ever had.
  2. If your aircon has a de-humidify mode then run it in that, very economical and floods the place with damned cold air. The secret is put it on when you get up, don't let the house get hot in the first place.
  3. Put the ship between them and raise them by the outer edges and they will be fine.
  4. I've mentioned this before, but it's worth repeating. On one of our cruises to The Islands we were in Noumea and a friend commented that the Aborigines should be very grateful that Captain Cook and the first fleet grabbed Australia just before LaPerouse arrived here. Not to say that the English were benevolent, just the better of the two.
  5. The trouble is have you ever seen a politician pass up a chance to denigrate {polite word for laying shirt on) the opposition.
  6. Good for you, I've had my hearing aids for roughly 4 months now and realise what I've been missing. Getting them was one of the better things I've done.
  7. What have you done with the money you haven't spent on cruising? We bought a $2200.00 Treadmill on Boxing Day Special for $1300.00, and are in the process of replacing our old CRT TV and sound system with a new Sony 4K TV, a newer Yamaha AV unit, and a Sony Blu-Ray player.
  8. Had a phone call about half an hour ago, backed up by revised booking confirmation emails, Princess have honoured the marked price, for all 3 cabins.
  9. Personally I'm a Cologne user, but I wouldn't be going near that stuff, mine is Burberry Touch.
  10. I agree Leigh, we are talking a matter of $150.00 per person, so $900.00 for the 3 cabin booking. We are all pensioners and $150.00 equates to 1/5 of a weeks pension. While I don't consider the situation deliberately deceptive, I do consider it extremely misleading.
  11. Further to my booking problem, as yet unresolved, with Princess, I have found out how it has occurred, and am warning people to be careful. I usually check out a Princess cruise online to find which cabins we want, and what price they wish to charge. Up until this most recent booking for our group, 3 cabins, I have had no problem, the final page I normally look at is as shown in the screen shot below, and I have it in front of me as I make the bookings. Now normally at this point I would take the price to be $2299.00, get on the phone and make the bookings, and NOR
  12. I posted under the Three For Free thread but had no reaction, so here goes in its own thread. Just got off the phone to Princess from booking 3 cabins for our group for the 30th Oct 2021 round trip Sydney/NZ 13 days. Some anomaly with the pricing between what is advertised and what Princess bookings has on their computer. On the web an extended balcony on deck 10 Mid aft is $2299, Princess want to charge $2449.00. I've sent screen shots, as requested, to the booking person for her to query up the line. Anyone else had this problem?
  13. Yep, I've got them, came in a pack of Bonds Briefs. Seasons Greetings to all and sundry, we bit the bullet and made a booking for NZ at the end of October 2021.
  14. I've got all those plus the Trend one as well, and have had them for many years. Don't worry about what they find unless they bring up a warning in the cormner of your screen, and they are very quick to do so if they find a bug. Just relax and enjoy the web.

Keep a keen eye on what they charge.
