Welcome Visitor:


Back from Hawaii

Our back-to-back Hawaiian cruises on the Grand Princess were...well...grand. For all our new friends, thank you so much! It's always a pleasure cruising with such bright, entertaining people. For those of you interested in reading more about why cruise ships don't fall over, check out the Tips section.  There are also unofficial statistics on all the Princess ships in the same section. Aloha!


I'll be at MileHiCon in Denver next weekend (October 18-20). It's a great little Con if you happen to be in the Denver area--especially if you're into science fiction and fantasy literature. There will be lots of readings, wonderful fantasy art, and panels for the budding writer or artist. I'll be talking about "Earthquake Mythology" Sunday at around lunchtime (between the Critter Crunch and the Art Auction). Come and say "Hi!" (it might just be the two of us).

Home Safe

When we left home to meet the Emerald Princess in Cobh, Ireland, we knew the flooding in Colorado was bad, but we thought it was over. The next morning, the renewed flooding was so bad it was on the BBC news at Heathrow Airport. We live in the mountains just west of Boulder so, of course, we were worried about our house. As it turned out, we were able to reach our home without any problem and everything was as we left it. Others all around us were not so lucky.
