I wanted to let all of you know that I will probably be off the site for the next 40 days or so.  I am taking a 38- day Voyage of the Viking Cruise (Aug 2) on HAL. We are going up to Boston ahead of time to meet friends and ensure that we don't miss the cruise because of flight delays or other problems.   If I am near Internet hot spots, I will do a port or two or reply to postings, at least.  Just wanted everyone to know why I wasn't active.  The last time I took a lengthy cruise there were joking speculations that perhaps I had joined the Royal Navy or been abducted by pirates, etc...  The imagination on the site is amazing!  Big Smile I will certainly be back after my cruise.  Behave yourselves why your Admiral is gone.
