Home again

I am back in the blog world. I arrived home around 1pm. This photo is from the start of my holiday. It was taken from the back of the boat. Or ship as I should say.We were on Norwegian Cruise lines on the ship Dawn. It has 13 restaurants,,and 10 bars & lounges.It is 965feet in length, (The size of 3 football fields). It can house 2,224 guests and has a staff of 1,o86 crew. It was awesome. It had a spa & fitness center,,( unfortunately I spent most of my time in the restaurants & bar & pool area,,,and casino.,,My room was great,,I had a nice comfortable bed. A blow dryer that actually worked as load as it sounds. The pressure of the water in the shower was great,,just like at home. Usually when I go to a hotel,,,the shower looks great but the pressure is not there. And the hair driers sound good but don't work all that well. I will be posting shots from the trip now till spring. I got some great shots. It was so nice spending quality time with my family. We all got along great and laughed so much. The weather was great the whole trip,,,it sprinkled one day as we were heading back from one of the islands,,but not enough to be a pain,,,it was actually welcomed because it was so hot. Now home I am totally beat,,,and back to a busy week. It was so nice not having to follow a schedule,,,and having everything you needed or want all in one place. It was funny that in all the nautical miles I traveled at a pace of 26mph,,,,I saw no whales,,,Dolphins,,or sharks. And only on the cruise back home did I finally see a few other ships in the distance,,,the lack of birds over the ocean is another thing I noticed. I knew {J} would miss me,,,He had roses around the house when I got home,,,and he cooked me a nice dinner. Sure hope the pampering continues. On the ship, I loved using room service for coffee in the am. And I had 2 guys attend to my room,,They would clean up after me,,,make my bed,,,and turn it down at night, with mints on my pillow, Fresh ice in the container. A few times they made towel arrangements into rabbits and elephants,,,I wanted to take them home (the guys) and keep them,,,but couldn't afford to pay them,,,so that blew that thought. Now going to try out my bed here................Happy Trails.................%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
%%%%%%%%%%%Identity Theft's Newest Scam ArtistThis has been verified on (link listed below) and by the FBI (their link is also included below). Please pass this on to everyone in your email address book. It is spreading fast so be prepared should you get this call. Most of us take the summons for jury duty seriously, but enough people skip out on their civic duty, that a new and ominous kind of scam has surfaced. Fall for it and your identity could be stolen, reports CBS. In this con, someone calls pretending to be a court official who threateningly says a warrant has been issued for your arrest because you didn't show up for jury duty. The caller claims to be a jury coordinator. If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the scammer asks you for your Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Sometimes they even ask for credit card numbers. Give out any of this information and bingo! Your identity just got stolen. The scam has been reported so far in 11 states, including Oklahoma , Illinois , and Colorado .The FBI and the federal court system have issued nationwide alerts on their web sites, warning consumers about the fraud.Check it out
