    Nice day in Ventura today. Did a 101 mile ride starting in Ventura and going up to above Santa Barbara and back. Got through it without major problems - except for one flat. I hate flats!

    Happy Monday everyone!

    Well, exactly two weeks from right this very minute, I should have passed through the atrium of the Disney Magic and am headed to a wonderful lunch (love that strawberry cold soup) and of course some shrimp and whatever else suits me!

    Can't wait to see Scott and Lynn and others who are on this cruise. Wish those of you who aren't joining us could have come along. We will be thinking of you all!

    :thumbsup2

    Good Afternoon Cruisers!

    Beautiful weather here also! The temp is 85, but it does not feel that hot, a nice breeze.

    Had a nice chat with Shari via e-mail!

    My turn!!!

    Good morning all - yep, another day closer!

    Scott & Lynn - sorry to hear about the modem. I gave up DSL years ago - cable is MUCh faster here. FIOS not an option in my building unfortunately.

    Ken -the lanyard list seems pretty reasonable for this trip so far. I am hoping that others will find/join us!

    Good Morning Cruisers!

    Yes, I am glad we got the modem fixed, I would miss my morning ritual of checking e-mail and the DIS boards!! After all, being retired and not working, this is my main venue to socialize:rotfl:

    Ken - and think of how many extra lanyards we will each have - the whole crew of the ship may get their own lanyards! Of course, this cruise is still a ways off, we may get a few more to join us before next August!

    Ok - I have been hemming and hawing for 2 years about going back to school. I was talking to an old professor of mine one night (from my associates program), and she told me that my most recent alma mater had FINALLY gotten their masters programs online, and that she is heavily involved with it.

    hmm I say to self. gotta check that out.


    so, I do. Seems that the master's level classes I took in my bachelors program will EXPIRE in 2009. So - I called the dean of the school. It was a small program and everyone was very close.

    Kathy answered me on 4th of July. What are you doing in the office I ask - getting stuff done she answered!!!

    She told me I was in the masters program, I just had to fill out some paperwork. I did so, and today I actually registered for and paid for my class.

    I am SO not mentally ready to do this again - but - here I go!!! Like swimming in cold water - just jump in I guess

    Online classes are usually a lot more work than in person - but have huge flexibility.

    Wish me luck!!!


    Hey Lynn- here in NJ one is allowed to audit classes at any state sponsered school if over a certain age. No degree, but lots of knowledge. If one wants the degree, one pays 25% of the tuition I think. Is it the same where you are? Online classes are not really a big deal, just more papers and research really. Just a thought!

    Good Morning Cruisers! Beautiful day here in Cheyenne!

    Cayla, I do not know about on line classes here in Wyoming, but I imagine that because the state is so big, and schools so limited, that there is a big on-line program. I did have a friend at work in Jackson who was taking a course on-line, she did nothing but complain about how much work she was expected to do in so little time with very little support from the instructor, but she did blame the instructor, not the school or the system for the problems she was having. Congrats on going back to school, I know that is a big step, and good luck to you - I know you will do great!
