I have found what look to be considerable bargains on the Website www.cruises.com. For example, there is an 11 day cruise of the eastern Mediterranean and the Black Sea for as low as $699 for an inside cabin. Hard to beat the price, even if it is per person, double occupancy. There are a lot of other deals that look to be good, particularly on repositioning cruises, that is, cruises that a ship takes across an ocean to cruise in another area for the season. There are a lot of these in fall and spring.
I have recently joined Facebook and am enjoying it, though it is a bit hard to understand.
On the investment front, I was again wrong in selling Teck short, figuratively speaking--it has continued to climb a wall of worry. Sherritt has also done well recently.
