Three Men Survive
By the time we reach The Marquesas we will have been with a search engine like Google for over three weeks. David and I admit to using this frequently, my family would say to excess and that I should rely on my memory more. Well here we are functioning well with no Google and having to think of the answer has stimulated much conversation. Although, I still can’t remember who played Dana Sculley in the X-Files. Are all men the same, do they use the search engines as a ad memoire?
 
Moment of Madness
After eating a delicious tea, consisting of spicey tuna with gilled cheese on top. I began thinking of the food I have most missed. Top of my list was Penny’s roast beef with all the Trimmings. his lead on to a discussion and eventually a full blown joint menu of what we would like....this was in our minds eye so we were never too full.

We dream of good food, but our cooking on board is excellent and the menu rich and varied. It is more than the good food we miss, but also the wonderful company we normally have with our meals.
