I don't watch AI but I saw him on one of the morning shows and thought he sounded mediocre at best. If he was the best there was this season then I'm glad I don't watch anymore

    I should probably add that since I didn't watch, maybe I just missed his good performances
    Awww...ArchieComic Fan....I won't ream you for not liking Taylor! Everyone likes different things and that's what makes the world go around, right?!
    I loved the pictures you posted...and I have to agree with myrosiedog, next time take the trolley and you can see Key West without wearing yourself out!

    Thank you so much Amanda for doing that for this computer idiot.

    So the first picture is me and my two friends in Tijuana. What a day that was. We boarded the ship the next day, which is the beautiful ice sculpture and watermelon carving. The next is from Formal night and that is the beautiful Pacific Ocean behind me.
    Then the fortune cookie factory in San Francisco. And yes, we bought fortune cookies that mostly made it home intact although a lot were broken.

    Then me in front of Mt. St. Helen's. Then a picture of Mt. St. Helen's after the clouds lifted and you could see in the crater. It was COLD up there. Still snow in a lot of places.

    A portrait they took on the ship (they take pictures constantly, everywhere, of everything and they are expensive. Yes, I did buy a few. )

    And finally me and my "friend" in Victoria Canada.

    So you've gotten a glimpse of just about every place we went from Mexico to Canada.

    The Amazing Cruise, 3 countries, 3 ladies, 6135 miles, no Phil, no million dollars, but it sure was fun!!!!!!!

    Sorry for the double post. But I had to ad this about AI. Everytime the captain spoke, the intercom on the ship would go Bong Bong and it overrode the sound on everything, everywhere. And he would go on and on and on and on.
    Well the final for AI, they had quite a gang in the sports lounge off the casino and were taking bets in the casino for the final.

    Just as they went to announce the winner. Yep, you guessed it: Bong, Bong, "this is the captain speaking". Everyone in there was so upset. They got to see it on the screen, but they missed hearing any of it because the captain was prattling away about something. I thought it was funny, but there were quite a few people that did not.

    Re: Going on a cruise

    Next year will be my 30th wedding anniversary and we are considering an Alaskan cruise. I want to start preliminary planning now because I know it will be expensive and will try to come up with a ballpark figure to save for. We want to do an inside passage cruise. I know I can get tons of info on google (especially Cruise Critic) but was wondering if anyone here has done an Alaskan cruise and has any tips to offer. We aren't 100% decided it's what we're going to do but it's at the top of our list.

    #1. Get a balcony cabin. You will not regret it. Especially when going through the glaciers. We have been twice and would go again in a heart beat.

    Re: Going on a cruise

    We're about to do our 4th Alaskan cruise (we've done a total of about 13 cruises). We've done the northbound Inside Passage twice (Vancouver to Anchorage), and a 14-day round-trip from Seattle. This next one will be 11 days round-trip from San Francisco. I'd be happy to respond to any questions you have.

    First tip . . . most cruise lines have a vow renewal package. The captain conducts the ceremony, and it's really kind of a nice way to commemorate this special occasion.

    We went back in 2005 and loved it. We flew from NY to Vancouver and left from there. We did the Inside Passage. We cruised with Norwegian Cruise Line, a line we really like, having taken several cruises with them. Since we had our two sons with us and the cruise was pricey, we did not do any of the excursions with the ship itself. We made arrangements at each city we stopped in. One day we booked a trip up to the Yukon to see the sled dogs. We got to see all of the sites the cruise excursions offered but at a fraction of the price. The one thing we didn't do was take a helicopter ride to land on a glacier. That would have been fun but at 400 bucks a pop times 4, it was way, way over budget. Oh, and one thing we didn't do which I kind of regret is not taking the land tour of Denali National Park. Many people combine the land and cruise package, doing one week of each. I know you'll have a wonderful time; the scenery is just breathtaking!
