  1. While he doesn't do cruise travel, Rick's downloadable poster applies to many aspects of cruising. I think cruisers can relate, as it's quite humorous:: https://www.ricksteves.com/watch-read-listen/read/travel-news/august-2020/no-travel-tips
  2. And we now know his name is Daryl. 😊
  3. Yep. Been there, done that. Fun little cars.
  4. Our Canada/New England to FLL on the Zuiderdam in October (that we booked thru that big box TA) was canceled by HA in early May, and I finally got notice, a few days ago, from my credit card that our deposit was refunded by Holland America.
  5. Same here with Hostess cupcakes and Twinkies. Probably both recipe change and taste buds changed . . . Or there is just better junk food nowadays. 🤷🏼‍♀️
  6. If a cloth mask is causing skin irritation, ladies can avoid wearing makeup. I haven't worn foundation since lockdown. 😳 I don't want to think about how my makeup would feel under a mask, even after 30 minutes. Ugh. Highly perfumed aftershaves could be a problem for men. We wash all our masks (and general laundry) in Free&Clear type detergents and never use fabric softeners or dryer sheets due to allergies. Their oily residue and/or their perfumes can cause skin breakouts for sensitive skin. I suggest to friends who will wear the cloth masks I've made for them for work that they change them out after 2-3 hours and put on a fresh one. I give them three or four, and encourage them to wash them every night. They can be hand washed in the sink. This virus is susceptible to soap/detergents so hot water isn't necessary. We don't boil wash our hands during the day, and that works. We prefer the pleated style to the contour style that is more prevalent on the internet and we see almost everywhere. Those contour ones are not 'one size fits all' and the majority of improperly worn masks are that style. Cotton breathes better than synthetic fabrics, IMO.. The masks I make include a sleeve on the inside for a nose wire. This helps it fit better at the top of the nose and really cuts down with the glasses lens fogging.
  7. Wow, this brings back memories! I can still sing the Tastykake song from the commercials. LOL
  8. LOL!! I keep this poster on the wall of my sewing room. Just in case... they have an entire page for us on this 😊 https://www.cdc.gov/cpr/zombie/index.htm
  9. We just now received an email from HAL about this. Now to get a refund on our deposit and shore excursions.
