Who claims Marjorie Taylor Greene is not a genius? She has claimed that, since Biden became President, 6 billion people have illegally crossed our borders. Folks, there are less than 8 billion people on this entire earth.


Spent the day yesterday at The Great Barrier Reef. We had been there before. This was the first excursion we have taken with Seabourn. We had booked a couple of others, but they were cancelled. I would rate Seabourn’s effort at C, maybe even C—.

It did not help that it was teaming rain. When we got off the ship, we went through immigration which went smoothly, but then it was almost 5000 steps from the ship to the Catamaran we boarded and no one to show us where to go.

We made it, but it was a struggle for me. The catamaran was not nearly as nice as the one we had when we took Oceania’s excursion three years ago and some of the catamaran’s crew boarded on surly.

What was really nice was how everyone who went on this excursion from Seabourn was nice and tried to be helpful to people who were struggling with their equipment or putting their wetsuit. We got to know some of our fellow passengers must better.

Barbara dived. I stayed on the catamaran. However, there were a whole of of passengers in their late 60’s and 70’s who were really amazing. I was exhausted at the end of the day without going in the water. I went into the coffee bar when we returned to the ship and saw a run on sandwiches being picked up to bring back to the cabin before people were just too tired to dress to go out for dinner.

Yesterday was a day we did for Barbara. Many days we do for me. As I have written more than once, what we have done over our married lifetime is what one of us wants to more than the other does not want to do it. Barbara wanted to go yesterday more than I did not want to go so off we went. If all married couples did this, I would have been out of business decades ago so keep this is a secret that is what Foster Brooks said when he roasted Don Rickles, maybe the funniest roast ever done. It is on YouTube if you have never seen it. Here's a link to watch it:

I watch it at least once a week and still laugh my ass off


See you tomorrow. At least that is my plan.


Go Ukraine
