    I'm Ba-ack!

    Been away a couple of weeks on a cruise to Central and South America from Ft. Lauderdale. It was hot, Hot, HOT! but there's something to be said for that when you miss two weeks of snow and ice in Ottawa.
    When I got back my car was frozen in a block of ice in the Park N Fly lot and it took me, two PNF drivers and two buckets of salt/sand mix to extricate it with my wife doing the steering.
    Finally arrived home at 1 AM after an 18 hour travel day.
    Oh, I did pick up a Citizen Eco-Drive on the ship which I hope will be my go-to watch for travel - no batteries, no wind-up, no rotor, no one really interested in stealing it. I like its 1950s flavor and although it's a 43mm diameter it fits my smaller sized wrist pretty well.

    If you get yourself a new netbook or smart phone you'll be able to perform your moderator duties on your next cruise, then they'll be no need to announce your return! Welcome back!

    Yeah, like I'm going to do this when I'm out by the pool with a nice cold Grolsch in hand, or sightseeing in Cartagena. I have a netbook but Internet on the ship is slow and expensive.

    Welcome back Ray. Glad you had a good time. Makes my upcoming 4 nights in rainy Suffolk seem somewhat less appealing,!

    Nice Citizen too!

    Welcome back Ray... trust you had a good trip, and hope you brought some of that great weather back up here to speed up spring ; )

    Don't forget to move your watches/clocks ahead... DST has arrived around the same time you did, just in case it was lost in the travel shuffle.

    Cheers,

    Maybe they redeemed their "likes".
