    Canada is on my list of one of these days. But for now domestic is fine as next year will be down under again. Melbourne and maybe if I can afford it a side trip to NZ or Tasmania (even if it is jsut a day trip).

    I've never really been a cruise person Sheri. I like boats (and look forward to another fishing trip in Kiwi-land one of these years). but on a cruise you are a bit trapped. In Sydney, I was in the city one day, the rain forest the next, teh zoo the next, touring wineries.....even in Auckland I was in the city one day. ona boat with Ian the next and catching all the snapper. Now that was a nice afternnon cruise. but beyond that a lengthy cruise has never been one of my vacactions.

    But thank you for the link.

    You've probably already been to these places, but I thought it might work for you because it has everything you said you were looking for (there's probably sailings out of San Diego for 4 days too, for different ports of call). Sail at 5:30pm, Catalina one day, Ensenada the next, and one full day at sea to lounge by the pool. You can do as little as you want or as much as you want LOL. Close to home. No long hours spent flying somewhere and dealing with all that security? More time to sleep

    Orrrrrrr

    hmmm Vegas?

    Reno/Lake Tahoe?

    Palm Springs/Palm Desert?

    Baja? Go see Sammy?

    Puerto Vallarta?

    Probably a wide variety of 4 day packages for any of those.

    Well, the place I had in mind fell through. But on the bright side, this weekend SF will be a zoo should I need to be cheered up

    The highlight of course on Sunday morning with the Dykes on Bikes leading the way down Market Street. Followed by throngs of naked men dancing and prancing their way down Market Street.

    Talking even better than a parade full of naked men

    Someone just gave me a chocolate-coconut cookie. YUMMY. I rarely eat chocolate or sugar so when I do, it is a treat. Chocolate beats naked men everytime.

    Only in Canada?

    Survey reveals dirty secrets in the men's shower. Singing takes back seat to female fantasies

    Jim Gibson, Times Colonist Published: Friday, June 23, 2006

    It's shocking what Canadian men are up to in the shower, according to a survey by the Dial soap folk. Apparently, it isn't all about becoming squeaky clean in as few minutes as possible

    They have fantasies that don't involve out-Michael Buble-ing Michael Buble on stage at a sold-out GM Place in Vancouver. In fact, a mere 16 per cent of Canadian men surveyed even ranked singing as their favourite shower activity.

    They have other forms of vocalizing on their minds, which surely need an icy cold shower. Forty per cent said they want company in the shower, if only in their imaginations. Given a choice, twenty-seven per cent fantasized about being alone in a really hot shower with Shania Twain, while 24 per cent picked Pamela Anderson as their favourite Canadian celebrity shower buddy.

    Pushy pollsters really turned on the figurative cold water by asking men to pick a male shower partner. Don Cherry ranked the highest, proving Canadian men who shower obviously have a wicked sense of humour.

    Those least likely to fantasize in the shower are bar-soap users, according to the survey commissioned by a company promoting new body wash products for men. About twice as many body-wash users fantasize in the shower compared to men using bar soap.

    Three times as many B.C. men admitted to fantasizing in the shower as Alberta and Quebec men. What's unclear is if B.C. men's shower fantasies involve sightings at Wreck Beach or plummeting ferry fares and gas pump prices.

    However, it isn't all fun and suds for Canadian men in the shower. The survey revealed serious concerns. One in 10 listed too little space in the shower for their stuff as their biggest peeve. However, 27 per cent said running out of hot water was their biggest worry, proving there's nothing like a cold shower to wreck a fantasy.

    Given that you are a BC man, are you in the 40%, 27%, 24% and the one in ten or the nine in ten?

    So this means you prefer to shower alone and everything fits in the shower?

    Apparently international relations are conducted in the shower, but I'm not sure how national security is affected. . .

    Thumbs up on another note

    One of the books I bought when I was down under is a book called
    "Kokoda."

    I like to read military history (as long as it is well written and not dry and boring). This book docouments the role that Australia played in WWII along what is called the Kokoda Track. This is one of those books that you cannot put down. I am about halfway through and it is a fascinating book. Very good read.

    Just a bit of lite reading then Cheffie.

    The Kokoda Trail was one of the most inhuman sections of the Pacific War. Apart from the terrain, the disease, posinous watevers, there were the Japanese for the Australians to fight.

    It has become virtually a pilgrimage for Australians to "Walk the trail".

    There have been more than a few parts in the book that make me wonder (and brought a few tears to my eyes) about man's inhumanity to man. What those Australian soliders had to go through .....

    Have you read "An Army at Dawn"? It's supposed to be the first of a trilogy chronicling the United States' involvement in WWII. I'm about half finished with it and it is unusually well written. Sounds like it might be right up your alley.
