Good to see where I rate Becki.... ;)

I missed a good month on the other thread, why did they move us? It's pretty special though that we are 'Friends of Cruise Critic' - glad to see someone realized how valued this thread is - even if I take a month or so off...

A Special Shout out to Beau (and Kathie Lee) - I think of you often, not entirely sure why that happens to be honest, but I hope God has graced you with peace and comfort over these last couple of months.

p.s. to Diane - Next year dammit...

Glad to see you found us Paul without bringing out the B signal :eek:

We are a special group, but I think they took us off because of all the years of conversations was slowing down the system....a polite way of saying that we talk too much:D

Jill, yep, they decided to delete all the older threads that were "clogging" up the system and slowing it down. Oink and I were also participating on a Dawn Princess thread from '05 or '06 (help me here, Oink?). That was moved a couple of years ago from the Roll Call threads to the "Floataway Lounge", but they cleared that one too, and sent them the same message that we all got on our board, but no one so far has come over to participate in a new thread. That Dawn Princess cruise was the one Alicia was going to go on with us when she passed away. :( She chose our name, the "Dawn Dreamers", and so the "Dawn Dreamers" we were from then on in her memory.

OMG, Grace! I hadn't even noticed that! LOL! Since I get to this thread thru my User CP, I hadn't noticed the directory that got me here. When we were on our Equinox cruise with our cruise buds from Vegas and my BIL and SIL, Celebrity had a whiteboard at the purser's desk with the daily "meetings" listed. My SIL asked me if I knew what friends of Bill W and Dorothy were. Well, I did and I told her. She just stood there with her mouth hanging open and then said, "really?!". I said, "yessss". She then wanted to know how I knew that. I wanted to know why she [B][I]didn't[/I][/B] know that. Live in a cave much? :p

[SIZE=3]scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page where you see forum jump... click on that you will find the Dawn Princess 2005. Looks like they started a new thread and are not using 'your new home' many of the others appear to be doing this as well. That's why no one else is on here.... matbe we should do the same.[/SIZE]

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"][COLOR="Teal"]That is the question! Okay Summiteers, Gary is onto something here. :D If we want to move, then what title do we want to use? This time, if we use the word Caribbean....let's be sure to spell it correctly! :eek: :p It has two B's and only one R....not the other way around. :rolleyes:

What do you think?

[FONT="Century Gothic"][SIZE="4"][COLOR="DarkOrange"]:D Hey Summiteers! I just ran through all the threads under the Friends of Cruise Critic forum and guess what.... The April 30th 2004 Summiteers thread is the oldest one listed! :D :cool: :) :p (Of course, not all have the date in their title....minor detail :rolleyes:)[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

Ah, thanks Gary! I figured that gang had given up the ghost! :D I've given them up, Oink. Not much going on there anymore anyway, although I will miss Deborah. You (Oink) and Deborah were the main reasons I kept up with that board anyway.
So, yes, I agree with the "2004 Summiteers - The Sequel" for our new thread.

Beau, you're doing so well picking up where you left off. Uh, that drink of the day with the raspberry vodka sounds good, except for the olives. UGH! I can't imagine olives with all the sweet stuff like raspberry, galiano and orange juice. Yuck!

[FONT="Arial"][SIZE="4"][COLOR="DarkRed"]:o Okay you guys, evidently I'm having a major blonde moment. I was going to start our new thread, Summiteers 2004 - The Sequel, (or something similar) in the new Friends of Cruise Critic forum.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT="Arial"][B][SIZE="5"][COLOR="Red"]:confused: However, I cannot figure out how to start a new thread!! :eek: :rolleyes:[/COLOR][/SIZE][/B][/FONT]

[FONT="Arial"][SIZE="4"][COLOR="DarkRed"]Therefore, I would like to bestow this honor on Gary. :D Gary - If you would be so kind as to set us up properly (and perhaps add a nifty icon, as others have done), we sure will appreciate it!

Beau - Great fun reading your review. You and KL have been back about 4 months now, right?! The freshly made waffle cone sounds delicious.

Later....[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

:cool:[B][FONT=Georgia][SIZE=3][COLOR=indigo]..Good Morning, Summiteers...Becki, I believe the Brand name of the Vodka is Three Olives...Not that you would put three olives in a sweet drink like that...Yugggg...:eek:[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/B]

Yes, thank you, Beau for the explanation. I never thought of the name of the vodka, duh! But, still, it wouldn't have surprised me if the drink had had 3 olives in it. Some chefs/bartenders pride themselves on these "creative" combo's which are just truly awful.

Oh, come now Jill, that can't surprise you! :p

As for vodka, there was an ad for Ketel One vodka in my one cooking magazine. It said to bring in that ad to the HQ if you were "ever in the neighborhood" for a free taste. Well, joke was on them, because their HQ was in Schiedam, Netherlands, where Garrett spent a great deal of time working. :D
