All My Bags Are Packed ....



"All my bags are packed and I'm ready to go .." Well, not really, but it makes a nice song lyric. We leave tomorrow - not, I hasten to add, on the ill-fated Empress of Britain pictured above - and we will not be back until the weekend of the 6th and 7th February. Internet access is neither easy nor cheap on the high seas so I will not attempt to post to the blog whilst I am away. However, whenever possible, I will try to check into and update my Facebook page, so if you are on Facebook and want to keep in touch, add me as a friend if you haven't already (there is a link to my Facebook page on the sidebar). I look forward to being in contact with everyone again on my return.

  4. Alan - use the shipboard VSAT service with gay abandon. Chances are the revenue will accrue to my company. Bon voyage and don't fall for being sent down to the engine room for a bucket of steam - or a long weight.

  5. Chairman B : How about a password or two for free access. I bet you went in search of a good few buckets of steam when you were a young rating.

  8. Enjoy Alan, and let me know what you think of the Canal when you return. I grew up watching ships navigate that...

  9. I prefer to be in complete denial where Facebook is concerned. Enjoy the iTouch as well while you are away. Maybe we'll have the sun and you'll have the rain? I'm sure you could do a few beer tastings if that were the case. Have a good trip.
