We have discussed this on Chit Chat, but this is the place to ask it again!

Do you rotate your seating in the dining room?

Yes I love to have a different person by my side and also a different view of the dining room..On the 2nd night, I will always select a new seat.

What size table do you prefer?

I would say, 8 is the best for us..too big, and you miss conversation, and Lord knows, I want to hear it all[/b]

I agree that 6-8 is the ideal size table for socializing. DH always goes to dinner a tad early and deliberately changes where he is sitting so that we have to mix it up. Sometimes I'm right behind him, but usually I just refuse to rush to anything on board.

We will sometimes select a table in the same server's section but aren't too picky. The table size will change each night depending on who we end up dining with. If our dining companions have a favorite waiter, we will usually defer and let them choose the location.

I like to do that too Trip....change my seat at the table. Different people, different view. I like table sizes of 6 to 8.

We have changed in past and at other times, stayed put.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
