    🎵   Feelin' Hot, Hot, Hot! 🎵




    ellie1145,  this song was written by Buster Poindexter;  but that is not his real name.  He did not want to take credit for writing this song.  The performers real name is David Johanson from NY.  Great performer


  2. Russia just announced they have a vaccine that passed the third trial and they are sending it to get approved.  This was on this mornings NBC TV news.  https://www.complex.com/life/2020/07/russia-reportedly-plans-to-approve-coronavirus-vaccine-in-weeks


    Some people will not believe this and some will.  All I know is hope is alive

    I’m guessing it’s the same as what’s in a Big Mac here in the U.K., so it’s a sesame bun with 2 beef burgers, shredded lettuce, Big Mac sauce, pickles, chopped onion and cheese?


    Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun.   That was the jingle they played in the commercials here in the US.  But your answer is good

  4. Princess will not provide transport two or three days prior.  You will have to arrange your own.  If you fly into Heathrow a few days prior you would have much more fun sightseeing in London verses Southampton.  However, I understand you want to get as close to the port as possible.  My suggestion if you can afford it would be to book your pre cuise and transfer thru Princess and let them take care of everything.  You will have transport from airport to your hotel and then to cruise port.  We had a group of 11 who cruised out of Southampton;  we stayed at three different London hotels;  but everyone took the ships shuttle to the port.  Hope this helps.

    Made with a French Press (or cafetiere as it's known in Europe), I hope? 

    No I do pour over.  I store my coffee beans in their bag in a special container that has no light or oxygen.  I grind my beans as my hot water is boiling.  I pour the grounds into my filter which is in the coffee cup.  Once the water boils I then do a 30 second pour; which activates the grounds and gets rid of the oxygen in the coffee.  You can see the coffee bubble up as the oxygen evaporates;  after 30 seconds; I then start second pour and so on.  It takes a minute and half from start to finish.  It is the best tasting fresh coffee I have ever had.  I use Starbucks French Roast Beans.

    To brew a decent cup of tea boiling water is required. The hot water dispenser in the buffet area does not provide boiling water. It is best to not say anything regarding the 'tea' in the boxes.

    I am not a tea drinker;  however, I do know that true tea lovers must have it boiling and like to steep the tea in containers.  I get it;  I drink black coffee thats it;  nothing fancy.

    I don't think there will be a big demand until there is  a working vaccine.

    Cinci is my home town.

    weberman;  are you in Naples or Ft. Myers area now?  Skyline or Goldstar?
