If Wai Tu Lo landed the Korean plane off the runway,
what's the name of the Chinese fellow who launched
the sinking boat?

Having lived in the Bay Area for years, actually sitting in the newsroom
back when McCormick(sp?) was there, and bristling at the way US 'news' is
presented today. It was very funny to find that Channel 2 actually
duplicated the first episode of "Just Shoot Me"
The humor was lessened when remembering how many people died, especially
saddening: the lady survivor who was hit/run over and killed by the
emergency crews upon their arrival.
I heard that on the radio last night. I am sad,
loved that TV show. Some how, everyone managed
to find someone to love. And usually with a plot
twist, they found the person who was there already.
Always a happy ending.

The only cruise I went on, was a small ship. It was more of a singles
cruise. Other than larger rooms, I don't think I would want one of the now,
very large ships.
My cruise in 1986 was fun, and you could many of the same faces every day.
It was an old boat. I went to the radio room, and saw a guy using a
straight key for morse, another looking on. Light bulb attached to antenna
transmission line, flashing morse.
I had thought about taking a cruise until I found out what they were
really like. You don't see anything. You stop at a port and go to the
local souvenir stands and back to the ship. No in depth visit to see
what the place is really like.
My niece wanted us to go on a cruise in Europe. Ten days on the ship but
only about 42 hours on land. You stopped at a couple of ports in Italy
but had to be back to the ship well before dinner time. I want real
Italian dining, not cruise ship food a couple of miles off shore.
When we go to Italy, we spend two weeks renting a villa and spend time
amongst the locals. Much more interesting.
My wife's father is from Paterno, near Cosenza in the southern part. We
spent some time there and want to go back again.
We usually go for a week each in two locations. Last trip was Rosana,
outside of Florence, Santa Maria de Castelebate on the shore south of
Click on more photos and the fourth down was our apartment
Close to Amalfi, Salerno, Paestum, Pompeii
We stayed here on two different trips
From here, it is a short trip to Pisa, Sienna, Asissi. Nice drive on
the Futa Pass to Bolognia.
We've also been to Venice twice for a couple of days each time. Nice,
but expensive and probably won't go back as we saw the highlights.
We usually have coffee/tea and maybe an egg for breakfast, then head out
for the day. Lunch is our big meal of the day as a nice restaurant.
Then we go back to the villa and dinner is usually couple of salamis,
cheese, bread, and the mandatory bottle of wine. I enjoy shopping for
those things at the local stores.
I wish I had been able to visit Europe. I did get to work out in the
Pacific and see some amazing things and I did stay in Mexico for a
while. I also got to see the foreign country of Californiastan while
I worked for an electrical contractor traveling from San Diego to North
of San Francisco. It's such a shame the way it's inhabitants are
treating such a beautiful and fertile country. ^_^

Interesting you mention that. Silicon Valley, that wall to wall city from
San Francisco to San Jose, is buillt on the MOST fertile soil in the
world, and thick, something like 10 to 40 feet thick I was told. Maybe
someday we'll get hungry enough and tear all that down to grow food, eh?
I recently spent a week in Tuscany and another week wandering around
other parts of Italy. Hey, "fast food" over there is better than "Olive
We're getting ready next year to take our parents on a River Cruise in
eastern Europe. Because of their age, cars and trains are not
appropriate. But I'm really tempted to take my bicycle and meet them in
every port. :-)
