  1. The same harm that any one of thousands of commonly found items would do. Yet somehow rolled socks, balls of yarn, and jars of face cream are still allowed on board.
  2. Oh Bruno, I am so sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences to you and your family.
  3. Graham, and @StLouisCruisers thank you, that is so kind. Your comments (and the virtual Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 😉) make me feel much better!
  4. Oh Jacqui, I’m so sorry to read this. Our condolences to Helen, and prayers for your BFF and her husband.
  5. Good morning, all! A salute to Buffalo Soldiers, and thanks @puppycanducruise for telling us their background. I didn’t know. Nature Conservation and Milk Chocolate are both important to the basic survival of the human species, I believe. We both love beef stew, but we’re under a heat advisory again so I’ll leave it for another time. And of course, you had me at Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. We go to Takoradi on the 2022 Grand Africa, so the pictures are much appreciated! @smitty34877fingers crossed that Miss Camilla goes home today! It’s a nervous time for Mom, but they will all be so
  6. Actually, the whole situation is GOOD news. If the first sailings dodged all the bullets, we’d still be wondering what will happen if someone on OUR upcoming cruise tests positive. A vaccinated passenger felt slightly ill. They got tested, and were positive. They were removed from the ship in joint cooperation between the ship and the port, and flown home. The cruise continued on to the next destination as scheduled. The other passengers were not affected and lost nothing. Everything went as well as could be hoped for. As the saying goes, the proof is in the pudding. After this, I fe
  7. And of course, now I HAVE to look up ‘Holland America Cruising Ducks’ on FB. What fun, as long as the Hotel Manager is OK with it, as Marty said.
  8. If only you could have seen my ears perk up and drop down again as I read those three consecutive posts.😂
  9. Well now, that blouse has definitely got your name on it! And for heavens sake, who wouldn’t feel sorry for themselves? They didn’t know before that the doctor doesn’t treat knees? And why not? Is he a dentist or something? What a stupid and pointless thing to put you through! You must be wishing you could go back to the Medical Center in Iceland.
  10. I don’t know if I can share it here, but we shall see. That blouse has started telling me it has your name on it.😏
  11. Thank you! DD is going to help me set up an Etsy shop. I have no clue how to do that on my own!
  12. …. and everyone being told to book their own way home with dodgy internet in a panicky world, the people quietly crying in deck chairs on the promenade deck, the Australian government continually reversing their stance on letting us dock and debark, etc., etc. I’m not saying the final week on board was a walk in the park and not a bit of a you-know-what show, but we were more in the position of the Westerdam or Maasdam. At no time were we even slightly comparable to the IMHO criminal treatment of the passengers on the Diamond Princess and the lethal outcome of those decisions. The A
  13. Thank you! Can you believe that beautiful bright colour comes from those lacy white flowers? No chemicals, no modifiers, nothing added but water and heat.
