R1 – D2

No, the title is not a mispelling from a particular robot. Rather it stands for Rhapsody Cruise 1 – Day 2.

Which is a sea day, fancy that….

The internet on the ship is working about as well as one would expect. Summarizes to – if they didn’t give it to me for free, I certainly wouldn’t pay for it. Ability to connect rates during normal hours 3/10 and speed 1/10. So much for the Surf & Stream package.  To be fair, from what I have hear, a lot of the connectivity issues are a result of business decisions rather than based on listening to intelligent input from the IT personnel. The average exec turns on their phone or computer and has absolutely no clue how much resources they are using. Nor do they understand the effect of all those programs which everyone leaves open…

There was a simple reception at lunch for certain category of travelers. There are scones in the Park Cafe in the afternoon. The internet net is somewhere at the speed I used to see over my 9600 baud modem which leaves me extremely cheerful about receiving it for a perk since paying would be stupid.

and I am still tired – so it is off to sleep early…

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
