Alaskan Cruise Day 1 – Departure and At Sea

Today, we formally began our Alaskan Cruise 2007 onboard the Celebrity Mercury. We arose early in the morning in our Vancouver hotel and met my Mother, my Aunt and my sister and her husband for breakfast. It wasn’t anything special – the food that is. The company was wonderful. After a brief snafu of getting […]

Alaska Cruise – Travel to Vancouver

We are off on our Alaska Cruise on the Celebrity Mercury. Well, actually, we are on our way to Vancouver for a Friday departure on the Mercury. As usual, the air travel day did not go well or as planned. Luckily, there were no major incidents. Just the usual airlines inability to make schedules. We […]

The Modern Media Reports on the WWII Normandy Invasion

Working Out

I have been doing pretty good lately at my workouts. I have been hitting the elliptical trainer pretty hard. I am using it about 5 days a week for 30 minutes. Each workout burns between 300 and 400 calories, so I am pretty pleased with my efforts. I have been doing this regime for a […]

Trying out Twitter and Family Update

One of the recent rages on the net lately has been Twitter. Thus far, I have been able to resist getting into it, but last night, I took the plunge and signed up. My tweets are now available here at Mr Papa’s World in the right sidebar or on My Twitter Page. Feel free to […]

Finally, Cloudcroft Trip Picutres Available

If you remember, last December, we took a trip to Cloudcroft, NM for five days to spend some time with Suzanne’s family in a mountain cabin. It was a nice, fun family reunion between Christmas and New Years. It’s only six months later, but finally, we have uploaded our many photos from that trip. It […]
