Costa Concordia (Barcelona) January 9 2012. My husband and I are cruising our first Med cruise after numerous North American / Caribbean cruises. I am a little nervous of the January European weather as well as the excursions. I would love to meet English speaking people who would be interested in joining us on private excursions?
Look forward to meeting up with fellow English speaking cruisers.

Wow Moiraine - 18. Now you are making me feel old. We will be celebrating our youngest's 29th birthday next Saturday.

Hi Andrea,
Welcome to cruise mates. I've neither cruised on Costa or done the Mediterranean in January (we went on June). I understand that Costa does have a large Italian following but I sure you will be able to find other Anglophones - Americans, Canadians, Brits, Aussies and Kiwis. If you had not already done so check out the Costa and Meet on Board sections of Cruise Mates. And come back and hang out with the Last Gang.

If it makes you feel any better, I was 30 when I had her.

Morning Gang! Hope everyone is doing well this morning. I feel kind of tired even though I slept. Oh well. I got up early and gave the kid some of her gifts. She went and found some 70s clothing elsewhere and didn't bother with any of my stuff that we found. Tonight is homecoming. Her dad will go watch the game. She is in the flag line. I'd like to go, too, but being around that many people would put dad over the edge. I hope I'll see video later. This weekend is also my 30 year class reunion, but I won't be doing that, either. I grew up a couple hours from here...and again, no one to babysit dad. My gang will be going to homecoming up there tonight to get things started. They'll have a good time, I hope. Now when the get liquored up they be legal! Have a good day guys!

Good morning gang

Happy saturday morning to everyone and have a nice weekend.

We are starting off with a sunny morning, so let's hope that the sun stays out. We had plenty of rain in the last couple of days.

I guess I'll have to keep a dinner journal! We are not really gourmands, but we are spending a couple of days post cruise in Puerto Rico. I'm interested in seeing what Puerto Rican cooking is like.

Happy Saturday Everyone,

I've mowed the yard and now am supposed to be grading papers. Better get to work and give the kiddies (grad students) their grades.
We are having friends from church over for dinner tonight. The DW has been scurrying about cleaning. I'm doing my part by staying out of the way in the basement.

The evening is here, we had an early supper. We are done for the day. We have been packing and deciding what to take and what not to take.
You never know how much you have until you plan your move.

I moved in January from a place I had lived for 20 years. I got rid of a lot of stuff. I basically ran out of time to go through everything though. I keep telling myself that I am going to, but so far all I've managed is a couple of boxes of papers. The other falf did manage to destroy my water bed and take my mom's silver to the dump.........

It's a shame that your water bed was destroyed and the silver was dumped.

I had a wonderful time with my friends .A great lunch and a trip to the area we grew up in .
My friend from Hawaii and I exchanged current photos as we last saw each other in 1958 . He sent a picture of him in a bushy beard .He decided to shave prior to leaving for NY .

Glad you had a good time Henry.

As for the bed, I've got a memory foam now. It's nice enough but I would still rather have the waterbed. As for the silver, well, it's just gone. I have plenty of other things that my mom has given me. I never want to move again but know I will.

We will be going to church and then to visit my mom. And that will be pretty much it for us today.

Good morning. It is going to be hot here...91, then we'll have the start of a cool down.

Have a good day all.

Good Morning Gang,

Had a nice dinner with friends last night.

Cool and sunny today. The second landscaper dropped off a plan and estimate this morning. I'm still recovering from sticker shock even though it was not much different from the first estimate.

Heading to the gym then church this evening.

A nice day has come to an end.

My DW and I can hardly believe that we are moving to Florida two weeks from today.

The two weeks will fly.

It was a pretty good day here, too.
