Family Update

Just a quick family update as I haven’t posted in a few days due to getting slammed at work and in preparation for our upcoming trip to Anaheim… It seems that Suzanne managed to lose our digital camera while attending her Grandmother’s funeral last week. She is not even sure where she lost it, but […]

Alaska Cruise Day 6 – Ketchikan

Today, our port of call would be Ketchikan. It’s considered the first city of Alaska since its the first sign of civilization as you head North into Alaska from its Southern most tip. Our scheduled arrival time was 1:00 pm. I think we were originally scheduled to dock in Ketchikan, but the port was overcrowded, […]

Cruise Videos

With the recent relaunch of Cruise Talk Central and its completely redone layout and look, I have added in the capability for us to upload our cruise videos to that site. To save on space, I have decided to only host our cruise videos over at Cruise Talk Central. This is a bit different from […]

School Year Winding Down

The school year for the kids is winding down. As usual, as the year ends, there seems to be a never ending stream of events at the school. Last week was weird week for the kids. One day they dressed up as mismatched as they could. They looked pretty ridiculous, but I imagine they fit […]
