    You think 5 years for each dead would be better? They would have to be a little optimistic about his longevity. But that would be fine by me.

    Seems like a pretty high price to pay for dinner with your mistress and an ego boosting drive by. A good example of why work and play should never mix.

    Ive never been on a cruise and have no plans to. I just dont like the idea of being stuck in a ship while on holiday, sure there are port of calls and all that but Id rather be in a place where I can travel around.

    I've been on one cruise and loved every minute of it. I went in to it with the same thought process you have. Go figure.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    Keep in mind that it was a short one. 4 days down the coast of Mexico to Ensenada and back with a couple of stops. The coast line was in view for the most part. You mentioned one thing. The port of calls. We went on a wine tour on one of them. On the ship we met a lot of great people and had a great time. My brother went on one of those 21 day trips to Hawaii and back. That might be too much.

    OK got it. Maybe I might try a short cruise after all. If my son agrees to it and when he gets older.

    That would be my advice. Try a short 3 or 4 day cruise. If you like it, it fuels the fire for a longer one. If you don't, you're only out a long weekend, but have a conversion starter for the future.
