Good morning from gray Oregon.

Patti - The credit card things is scary - there's no way to know the card is compromised.

Sheila - Someone from Delaware won Powerball last night - $170 million. Hope it was you. TwoCents

Lesley isn't joining us on the Alaska cruise and if anyone would like to join us we'll be happy for the company.

All this talk of food is making me hungry, but a colleague just made a Starbucks run so I have my 20 oz decaf. mocha, which should hold me for a couple of hours.

Jean it's good to hear from you this weekend! Starbucks sounds good right now... can you send me a cup???

I have a pork shoulder roast in the crock pot with a McCormick's seasoning packet to make BBQ Pulled pork. It's just starting to smell yummy in here!!!

mornign all

Paul Harvey had a very distinctive voice--very sing songy, with inflections on the end of sentences. He also would say Page 2 or whatever.

must be roast day. I went to store after church and couldn't resist the price of the chuck roast & 2 jumped in my basket. It's back to cold--we were 92 on Thursday & in the upper 20's last night--good ol Texas weather. figured it would be a good day to cook roast--then I put it in individual containers and freeze it--hmmmmm, can't wait to smell the garlic.

good suggestion about the cell phone registration on teh credit cards, I never thought of that.

off to get the roasts in the oven, then cleaning the extra bedroom--my cruise crap is somewhere on the bed--under all the crap I want to sell on ebay. gotta find it so I can PACK!!!!!!! this time next week, I hope I will be waiting at the pier to get on the Voyager --whhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhoooooooooooooohoooooooooooo

Isn't it about time we the thread rolled over to a new page - we're up to 74 pages.

Still gray here, and raining too. Just about to have lunch - microwaved salmon and vegetables. All those roast sound much better.

Jean, your salmon sounds good to me! Hard to get good seafood here in the midwest!

Yes, unfortunately, we will "roll" pretty soon! I hate when that happens!

I think I missed something--what do you mean by page rolling to a new one--don't we go to the next page ALL of the time?

roast is smelling good--just put in the veggies. decided it is just tooooooooooo darn pretty outside and so I am going to do some yard work---this is why the inside of my house looks like it does--I'd rather be OUTSIDE than inside.

Brenda, the entire roll call is going to start another roll call page pretty soon. Not just add another page, but this thread we've been posting on will lock and a new thread will automatically generate... it's confusing the first time you experience it, but if you look at all the 2007 roll call pages, you'll see what I mean.

Hi All, The baby dedication was beautiful. We all cried and Parker smiled and was too cute through the whole thing. We all went out to lunch and now great grand daddy and aunt Candace are on their way back tio the airport to fly back to Sarasota and Dallas and the Oklahoma City gang are in the car driving back. We are here along with Caley's parents 'til tomorrow. I think there's a noreaster coming up the coast tonight so we may be delayed. We've sure had a good tme here.

The young folks went into the city yesterday and they froze. Glad we stayed home here.

Have a great day all

Jen-your crab dinner sounds REALLY good.......Im with you....hate when they are hard to open...

Nancy-----that recipe was so good,I bought the ingredients again today..Publix has the beans BYGO....and they were lower sodium!!

Brenda - The avatar is a generic one, but it looks like Holly. I haven't learned how to upload my own photos. I may try after she comes back from grooming tomorrow. The problem is geting both dogs to sit close to each other for long enough for me to take a photo. DoggieBreak DoggieBreak

Unfortunately the salmon was frozen from Safeway, but we do have great salmon here, I was just too lazy to buy some and bake it. Sleep

Hey, thought I lost you all for a minute. That roll over thing had me going for a minute.

Kathy-Wow, is it chilly or what in Florida right now? Yesterday's weather was picture perfect. About 78 here, just beautiful. This morning was a shocker with the rain and wind. We went to church then to Bob Evans after church and it really was downright cold with short sleeves on. I think tomorrow is supposed to be as cold too and then warms up later in the week.

We went to the Red Barn on Friday. (it's a big, huge flea market & fresh veggie/fruit market) Yesterday we went to Kohls and Bealls Outlet and Bon Worth. Didnt buy much, pair of pj's, sandals, and shorts. They have so many shopping plaza's here and eating places. More per square mile than in Illinois, that's for sure.

Tomorrow we may go to a 50 cent movie place. Marley & Me. I read the book last year so I know it will be cute and know how it ends. We rented Changeling last night and watched it. :tv: Pretty good and I didn't realize it was a true story till we rented it. Long movie, 2 hours 20 minutes. I do recommend it.

Well, just wanted to give my TwoCents. DH watching the Illini game (he's a HUGE fan) and so I'm just catching up on the posts here. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

my neighbor's dad took it for his ranch. cute pup--we think it was part bird dog, but 3 is enough for me. and since I am leaving next Sat for a cruise...

Marley & Me is a great movie--it follows the book rather well. my poor friend that I went to see it with, isn't even a dog person (maybe that's why it caught her off guard so) and she was sobbing at the end. I grew up on a farm, now don't get me wrong, my dogs are my fur babies, but the life cycle is what it is. I was sobbing too, but was not surprised at what happened. I read the book AFTER I saw the movie. When we were booked on the original inaugural for Oasis, the author's mom was on the roll call. we ain't doing Oasis anymore, we're doing a little mystery cruise with a bunch of nice people instead HappyHappyJoyJoy wait, that sounded liek the people on the oasis weren't nice, they are....oh never mind. roast & veggies are out of the oven & I am going outside to clean the car & cut back some rose bushes

Hi All,
Back from the Mariner Pre and Inaug.....I NEED A NAP!
Ship is beautiful....love the Voyager Class,but they need more and bigger lounge type rooms....receptions in the Ice Rink is like going to a Stadium event. The Ice Show is fabulous...saw it twice.
Nothing done on the first 7 day Inaugural to celebrate it in any way...in fact they didn't even do a parade as the singer/dancer troupe came on in LA and their priority was they 2 Production shows.

Great seeing Jean and Don again....got a cute picture of them dancing and Jean in her lovely long gown! Another 6 weeks and we will all be back together again...Whoppee!

Need some sleep!..............ZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz Sleep (talk about burning the candle.....)

Sheila--glad to hear all is going well, do share the pix when you get the chance

Mar--good to see you back with us, sounds like you had a great time. Agree on having parties at the ice rink, just not easy to visit when sitting stadium style.

That's what I didn't like about the Freedom... most of the events were either in the Promenade with no seating, or in the ice rink. YUCK! I was pleased that the only time I "had" to go to the ice rink on the AOS was to actually see the ice show... and Quest. And Quest was immediately after the 70's street parade and by the time we got there, it was standing room only, so we left. Somehow they managed to hold all other events in the lounges, BUT there were very few 'repeaters" on-board. About 1000 total C & A members and only 85-90 D/D+....

Mar glad you enjoyed yourself and if you need a nap after a cruise, it must have been a good time!

Sheila, I'm glad you had a good time and if you get stuck here an extra day or two, I'm sure you won't mind a bit! More snuggle time with Parker!

Ran to the city to ck out Circuit City's last 8 days of selling......everything was about 40-50% off......but I think they picked the retails out of the sky cuz their big screen tv's were higher than Best Buy's ads this week!!.........typical!! no wonder they went broke.

Back home and entertaining kiddos now.........

Welcome back Mar and Jean........hope y'all had a great time!

Welcome back Marilyn & Bob glad to hear that you enjoyed Mariner.

We'll be anxious to hear more details of your cruise. I think the problem with the lounge sizes is that they were after thoughts on some of the Voyager Class ships and so they sort of stuck them where they had room.

I love the Mexican Med itinerary and had considered another cruise there before we booked Adventure.

Well need to get back to work.

Haven't seen Marley, or read the book but I'll catch it on HBO some time and bawl at home! Sad Sad

Welcome back Mar, glad you had a good time. Hope to cruise with you on Mariner one day. Was hoping for May but I'm off work the week before. Sounds like it tkes most of the week just to explore the ship!
