Can't you cut and paste it here?

I just watched Ephraim's episode of Buy Me. I thought it was going to be about their new B&B, but it was still fun to watch.

I watched it yesterday too. They did not mention the new B & B on the U.S. version. Ephraim was wondering about that. I thought it was fun to watch as well.

Naaaaa...don't want to anymore. It was supposed to be a post responding to a couple of RC posts and I wanted to show that they are not that important anymore simply receiving token pre-inaugurals to fuel their ego and entitlement feeling while others....oh well...never mind.

I think it is better that the other thread was closed. Gave me time to rethink the whole posting thingy.

Am I the only one who doesn't have Oasis Fever. Every email I get from RCCL is about Oasis. When we were on the AOS in September they only talked about the Oasis.

We are going on the Navigator in December, are we only going to get second rate crew and entertainment?

I'm reserving all judgement on the Oasis until the first report back on embarking an disembarking. I can't get past the chaos I expect is going to happen.

I'm sure Jean will let us know even though I don't expect the ship will be full when she does her 2 day.

I have not really had any interest in this ship and then last night I was showing DH some of the pictures on here with the inside balconies and he said I could take one of those!!!

So, I need a couple of reports and then I'll think about it.........

Nope, definitely about the sale of our previous B&B. You should see how much footage ended up on the cutting room floor, including a scene with "guests". I just wondered if they would mention the new B&B since they named the episode To a Bigger B&B in the US, versus calling it by our names in Canada.

I did see a little spike in our hits to our website from the US in the last two days. We aren't talking hundreds of hits, we are talking tens... versus the majority still being Canadian hits.

The autumn really has settled in and the B&B is getting more relaxed. Had just one guest for breakfast this morning, but it goes up to three tomorrow and then a full house from Friday morning to Monday.

I don't think that Buy Me Online is up to that year, yet. We are episode 12 season 9. I think they have seasons 4 and 5 on HGTV Canada, but that's it.

Anybody got an e-mail from that RC Kid, that obnoxious one with that fuzzzy bear I like to drown?

I guess that Sabo dude from the dark side, the cruise shark inventor, needed a new platform and found the kid with his adult connections quite handy. They opened up a cruise forum which mirrors the dark side.

Not I. But then again, why would they want me. I have a tendency to call spades spades.... I'm not loved by those with rose coloured glasses. I still can't get over the usage of what I would call stew meat for steaks on RCI.

An inside balcony?! You've got to be kidding! Aren't we talking cruising here? You know-the sea, the salt air, the warm sunshine, the views. You may as well have an inside cabin. If I want an inside balcony I'll go to the Luxor in Vegas.

Yes, you can have a balcony with a view of the centre of the ship. You get the sea air, but you have to look far to the right or left to see the ocean. It's like two twin condos with balconies facing the other building. You get the sea, sun and air between the two buildings, but your view is obstructed by the other damn tower.

My e-mail used to be in my signature (fl_cruiser64@yahoo.com) back in the days. And he was bugging me on info from RCI. I told him to not e-mail me anymore since I do not play with minors on the internet or anywhere else.

He stopped e-mailing me until yesterday. It was more a spam like mail (to a whole sleu of people).

Sabo is that guy who 'developed' cruise shark. Basically 'hacking' a website and using proprietary information without permission. He was kicked off CC at one point or another (not sure if he is back now) for advertising his cruise shark.

Now he found a willing companion in a minor to advertise his 'work'.



Not sure if I can put a name here as the forum is in direct competition with CruiseMates. Though I doubt any of us has any interest signing up with a forum where we are being told by a minor what we can say or not.

We are going on our 2nd Liberty OTS cruise, so we should be able to handle the Oasis.

Yes I do have Oasis fever.

Oops! I do apologize- no offense was intended. I thought the boards were for expressing opinions? I'm sure you will enjoy your inside balcony.
Happy Cruisin'.
