Government Help

Can the government solve our problems?

I suppose it is possible, but what will be the costs?

It costs the government (us) 1.14 cents to produce a penny, that is hardly a bargain.

Panama Canal

We just back from out trip through the Panama Canal and beyond, what a great trip this was. Our daughter Jen and her husband Tim came with us and this made it special for us. They had a cabin next to ours which made it very convenient. This made it possible to have two methods of communication, knock on the bulkhead or use the telephone. They took care of all of the details, arranged and supervised every event and saw that we had nothing to worry about, which made it very relaxing.

The Panama Canal was a great experience and one that I had looked forward to for many years, I was not disappointed. It is spectacular and you really can see it from the ship.

All of the trip was a wonderful experience and to top it off we met a lot of very nice people, which of course meant we enjoyed our meals. Most of our dinners were spent with Fred and Mary from Ohio, a very nice couple.
