Just got back

Howdy, folks.

Sorry to have left you guys for so long, but things have been crazy for me lately. After wrapping up the school year, Mrs. High Lord and I went on a cruise!

Now I'm back, but it's time for me to go to training for the next two weeks. I'm writing my vacation diary; I had hoped to have it up by this week but now it might be early next week before that gets done.

In the mean time, I found a couple of interesting articles over at MSNBC.

The first one talks about all the reasons to go cruising.

The second is one that was written by a humbug who has never been on a cruise and says he wouldn't go. Great, more room for me!

A third talks about how hard it is to fall over the side of a cruise ship. Having been on three cruises and two different ships, I must say that if you fall over the side, you either jumped intentionally, or you're being stupid (and probably drunk).

We went to the western Caribbean (where we were supposed to go on the Star Princess Mystery Cruise) and had a blast. I'll try and get my write up done by early next week and with a little bit of luck, I'll have some pix to share, too.
