The year 2011 was a busy year, and had no time for our usual sea cruise time. Tomorrow, the 8th of March, we will make up for lost time and be out of normal internet access for a few weeks. There may be some time in Fort Lauderdale, before sailing on 10 March, to send out a few quips. Returning on or about 26 March, there may be some occasional contributions by my son and daugher-in-law (the "Santa Monica News Bureau"), but no specific plans. Lynne and I will be traveling with my college room mate and his wife (John and Ellen Benson - the "Albany News Bureau"). John is a former Coast Guard warrior, and will be in charge of lookout for Somali Pirates as we navigate the "exotic ports" (so says Celebrity Cruise Lines) of the Caribbean. This is it for today - well, at least so far, unless something really really stupid happens out on the campaign trail:
