Cruise through the Panama Canal aboard luxury Celebrity Infinity from Miami to San Diego. This 18 night package...
Life has been pretty adventurous the past three months or so So since the beginning of March I have been in California for my great nephew Wyatt's 1st birthday, great visits with family and friends and saw a dear friend in The Grapes of Wrath. Next, returned to Texas and spent four days with my best friend Cinzia Muzzi at a chemistry conference in Dallas (I did union work while she did chemistry stuff) We played Spite and Malice and watched Mad Men until all hours of the night. (Awesome!!). Next it was off to Florida for a two week cruise thru the Panama Canal (wow!!!) to San Diego. (Yes Leslie was a guest on a ship she had actually worked on...Legend of the Seas...you rock.) After that Kevin Smith met me in San Diego for five days. Very nice. Next, Stomp load in and out, the four week opera festival and three dance recitals (all having at least one number from the Nutcracker...in May?...really?). Then the ballet and now two weeks of Jersey Boys. It has been crazy busy but wonderful and awesome. Lucky to ...

San Diego harbour, Panama Canal and rain forest
Retuned last evening from a 15-day cruise eastbound to and through the Panama Canal. Started in San Diego and ended in Ft. Lauderdale. World is beautiful and warm down there! Visited Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rico, Panama and Columbia. I think Panama is the prettiest country. Turning 70 "ain't so bad doin' it that way"
Thank you to all the service men and women. My father served on the USS Harry F. Bauer: Harry F. Bauer sailed 28 November 1944 via the Panama Canal arriving San Diego, California 12 December. After additional training both there and at Pearl Harbor she departed Hawaii on 27 January 1945 as a unit of Transport Group Baker for the invasion of Iwo Jima, next stop in the island campaign toward Japan. As Vice Admiral Richmond K. Turner's invasion troops stormed ashore 19 February, Harry F. Bauer acted as a picket vessel and carried out antisubmarine patrol to protect the transports. As the campaign developed, the ship also conducted shore bombardment, destroying several gun emplacements, tanks, and supply dumps. She proceeded to Ulithi on 8 March to prepare for the last and largest of the Pacific island operations, the Battle of Okinawa. Harry F. Bauer arrived off Kerama Retto 25 March and helped screen minecraft during preliminary sweeps of the invasion area. Under intensive air attack during this period, she ...
The expert says: When coming to San Diego, hit the "big three": Sea World, The World Famous San Diego Zoo, and the Gaslamp Quarter in Downtown. Arguably, you might want to hit Hotel Del Coronado and/or all of Balboa Park and it's museums. IN 2015, San Diego will be hosting the 100th anniversary of the 1915 Pan American Exposition celebrating the opening of the Panama Canal. Much is planned for that year!
Greetings everyone ... Vivian and I got back home about 10:00 PM last night ... we had a great time on our vacation ... we cruised aboard the Celebrity Millennial Ship from Fort Lauderdale, Fl. to San Diego, Ca. via the Panama Canal. We rested much .. saw some amazing sights ... met some interesting people ... (I) read three books ... ate way too much. We'll put together a slideshow and will force you to watch it. For almost the entire time, we were disconnected from phone and internet service. So now, let me thank everyone who sent me birthday greetings. When we returned, I read every single one of them. We can't wait to see everyone Sunday!
Who's going on the group trip to Nassau on Nov. 10? I understand about 100 of our friends are going on the 7-day Princess cruise through the Caribbean in December, and I'm sure you will have a fantastic time! If you can't make that one, there's another 7-day Royal Caribbean cruise that a bunch of us are going on in mid January. Contact Gary Hinthorne if you want to book that one. Also ask Gary about the fantastic deals on the 15-day Panama Canal transit from Ft. Lauderdale to San Diego next year.

According to Rappler.com, the BRP Ramon Alcaraz (PF-16) will be departing Charleston, South Carolina for the Philippines on June 10, 2013 (US East Coast time). An interview with PN's spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Gregory Fabic indicated that the route will include a testing or possibly a GUNEX (Gunnery Exercise) off Florida, pass through the Panama Canal, dock at San Diego, California; Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and Guam before heading to Manila for the arrival ceremonies.
* ~THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE~ As an American Veteran, I have been hearing this a lot lately. I'm not sure exactly what to say in response or how to feel. From police officers to healthcare workers, to people on the street. To be honest, I joined the United States Navy because I couldn't afford college anymore. I figured I'd do my time, get out and use my GI Bill. I had an uncle and three cousins who joined the Navy, so it was also a family tradition of some sort. But many things happened while I was in. The shuttle Challenger crash. Operation Just Cause. Desert Shield. Desert Storm. UNITAF. The Soviet submarine that surfaced off the Pacific Coast too close to San Diego for everyone's comfort. (It was the basis of which Tom Clancy's Hunt for Red October was written). Law Enforcement Operations on both sides of the Panama Canal doing Drug Interdiction missions, and many others various missions. My timeline may be a little off, so many details, so much information, so much time has passed it has all become ...
My father Dr. Chester Solez will be 90 years old on Monday May 6th. He is a cardiologist who has led a remarkable life. He graduate from Harvard Medical School in 1945 and rose to be Chief of Medicine and Chief of Staff at the VA hospital in Erie, Pennsylvania. Perhaps most remarkable thing in his life is the trip around the world he took with his mother and sister from February to September 1933 from NYC with destinations Madeira just off Portugal, Casablanca, Gibraltar, Cadiz and Seville Spain, Algiers, Monaco, Naples, Mount Vesuvius, the ruins of Carthage and Tunisia, Suez Canal, Red Sea, Bombay India, Taj Mahal, Delhi, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Sumatra, Java, Bali, Manilla, Shanghai, Japan, Tokyo, Nara, Hawaii, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Panama Canal, Cuba, and back to NYC. I debriefed him on the trip on Tuesday of this week and he still remembers it like yesterday!

TAKING A CRUISE THIS SUMMER? WILL I NEED A PASSPORT? Most cruises beginning and ending in the U.S. are considered "Closed Loop," meaning they begin and end at the same port in the U.S. For instance, if you board a cruise ship at Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and after visiting at least one foreign port of call, such as Bermuda, or Cancun, return back to Fort Lauderdale, you have taken a closed loop cruise. If, on the other hand, you - say - board a cruise ship in San Diego, California, sail through the Panama Canal (stopping at a foreign port during the cruise), and end the cruise in Miami, Florida, you have not taken a closed loop cruise and the following information does not apply to you. As of June 1, 2009 you need a passport (including infants). U.S. Citizens on closed-loop cruises will be able to enter or depart the country on the cruise with proof of citizenship, such as an original or copy of his or her birth certificate (issued by the Vital Records Department in the state where he or she was born) an ...
We had a Navy! For my Friends in Lassen/Susanville, following is a proud moment for us in WWII. USS Susanville (PC-1149) was a US Navy anti-submarine patrol boat during WWII. Her keel was laid as PC-1149 on 6 November 1943 in Bay City, Michigan; launched on 11 January 1944; and commissioned on 22 June 1944. She sailed, via the Mississippi River and New Orleans into the Gulf of Mexico, conducting shakedown cruises from Miami. During her first year of service PC-1149 cruised the waters along the U.S. East Coast and in the Caribbean. She patrolled for German U-Boats and escorted coastal and Caribbean convoys from port to port. The submarine chaser ranged as far north as New York and as far south as Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. On 13 June 1945, about a week before the first anniversary of her active service, she transited the Panama Canal and joined the Pacific Fleet. After calling at San Diego and Pearl Harbor, she arrived at Eniwetok Atoll in the Central Pacific on 28 July; then sailed the following day for the Ma ...
BMCM ERNEST SCHERMAN Master Chief Scherman enlisted in the U.S. Navy on August 11, 1942 at Bemidji, Minnesota. Upon completion of his Recruit Training at Great Lakes Illinois, he was assigned to the commissioning derail of the USS IOWA (BB 61) and served aboard her in both the European and Pacific Theaters for the duration of World War II. In March 1946 Master Chief Scherman was assigned to Naval Air Station, Corpus Christi, Texas, followed by duty at Pearl Harbor from October 1948 to January 1952 aboard ARD 29 an Auxiliary Repair Dry Dock then outfitting submarines for duty during the Korean Conflict. Master Chief Scherman began his amphibious career in January 1952 when he received orders to the USS RANKIN (AKA 103) in Alemeda, California. The RANKIN was commissioned in March 1952, received her amphibious training in San Diego and was assigned to the Atlantic Fleet in August 1952; departing San Diego in August 1952, transiting the Panama Canal and arriving in Norfolk, VA in September 1952. Having serve ...
RIP Al Jackson I received this sad news from Susie Schaffer: (Susie, Al Jackson and I worked and thrived together at Fireman's Fund for many many years) With great sadness I have to let you know Al Jackson passed away this morning after a valiant battle with pulmonary fibrosis. We saw him yesterday where he was comfortable at home in Palm Springs with Darlene, Shawn and Jessica at his side. Since Al and Darlene and Doug and I moved south several years ago, the four of us got together frequently testing as many golf courses as we could. Last year we moved on to the Big Island to further the humiliation (and thrill). They sailed with us on our sail boat through the Panama Canal and up to Costa Rica. Al did the passage from Costa Rica to the Galapagos then across the Pacific to French Polynesia. Darlene joined the 3 of us for a 2 week sail throughout the islands of Tahiti. Last August Al told Doug he had one more sail on his bucket list: San Diego - Catalina - San Diego. Oxygen bottles abound they did ...
People talk of the one-percent elite who are out to own and control everything in the world. Lets put a name on one of them: Dianne Goldman Feinstein (D-Calif.). This powerful U.S. Congresswoman is the 9th richest on Capitol Hill, according to reports about the b/millionaires in Congress. Feinsteins first major attempt at gun control occurred when she ordained a citywide handgun ban as mayor of San Diego, Calif., in 1984, where an attempt at recall failed.Feinstein, 79, called for more gun control measures after the Fast and Furious ordeal. While only verbally slapping the hand of the irresponsible government officials by saying mistakes were made, she tried again to infringe on Americans Second Amendment Right. Currently, she has her sights on becoming the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which oversees gun control legislation. In the wake of the Sandy Hook school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, Feinstein will ride the tide to usher in what elitists want, to grab Americans guns. Th ...

Thanks to everyone for the birthday greetings!!! We are leaving San Diego on the Celebrity Infinity for a 15 day cruise thru the Panama Canal. Two stops in Mexico, 3 in Central America and 1 in South America. Should be fun. Will try to post some photos.
Just for those of you who think Travel Agents aren’t necessary and you can do it yourself online, let me tell you how I spent my day. Last night, a client called at 8:30 to tell me that US Air had cancelled his flight from San Diego to Ft Lauderdale where he was supposed to catch a cruise through the Panama Canal. Too late to get him and the other couple there if they left today. Got them rebooked on a flight tomorrow, hotel in Ft Lauderdale, a flight to Cartagena, Colombia (the first port of call) and a hotel in Cartagena. Arranged with the Cruise Line for them to board during the cruise. Will be putting together their insurance claim for reimbursement of air and hotels when they return. My total fee for the above service - Nada.
Stoney Creek to Toronto, Ontario to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Cartegena Columbia, to Colon Panama, then through the Panama Canal, to Puntarenas Costa Rica, to Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to San Diego, California to Toronto, Ontario and back to Stoney Creek, Ontario with numerous sea days in between. And so begins the 15 day Panama Canal cruise that I've been waiting all year for. It will be over before I know it! Cheers!
The coast line in Southern California is constantly being polluted by feces with steroids, used condoms from the *** trade in Mexico, meth amphetamine waste, and all sorts of trash from Mexico, in order to kill the rich in California, and the world that made them so poor, after the Marines took it from them (California), that is why the Marines are the PERFECT candidates to take it over; 3 of the world’s largest USMC military bases are right here in San Diego, CA, at their borders. I say, Mr. President Obama & Michelle, send the Marines to capture the president of Mexico for these crimes, I personally (Major General Shawn Allen Schindler-Grayson, USMC) would like to lead this team of operatives, spies, and military personnel, into Mexico, to recapture our economic stability by bringing down the PRI/Mexican Mafia, that controls waste management in this 3rd world country. Within a few days, the Panama Canal, run by my Marines, will be polluted again, with Mexican waste, as well as the coast lines of the . ...
Tomorrow morning we are going to go over to nearby Ellington Field to watch the landing of the Space Shuttle Endeavour stopping over in Houston on its 747 piggy-back shuttle to its final resting place in California. Then tomorrow afternoon going to tour the new USS Fort Worth in Galveston, the new Navy cruiser being commissioned here in Texas before going on to its home port of San Diego. The Ft. Worth left the shipyard in Wisconsin where it was built on August 4 and traveled up the St. Lawrence seaway then down the East Coast to the Gulf. From here, on through the Panama Canal to California.
Gary's mom has just booked us on a 15 day cruise thru the Panama Canal in Sept. as a "belated honeymoon" gift. I am a bit excited as this is a trip I have always wanted to take. We leave from San Diego, with a few stops in Mexico (Puerto Vallarta, Cabo etc.), then to Guatamala and Costa Rica, all on the Pacific side, thru the Canal to Panama and Columbia, SA ending in Miami. Sounds good to me! Thanks, Marion...
Desperately seeking LUCY - picked her up on the 101 in Willits, drove her to Santa Rosa. A week and a half ago?

The Panama Canal Cruise was relaxing - so many at sea days. Enjoyed Cartegena (even tho I didn't get a photo in front of the infamous hotel), The Panama Canal, Costa Rica, Puerta Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, San Diego and Seattle...then a flight home. Fly back to Seattle on Saturday to catch the Alaskan Cruise and train ride up to Denali National Park and then up to Fairbanks. These are the days we have dreamed of and never knew they would come true.
Pat and I just got back from a months vacation, 2 weeks with my daughter Susan in Florida plus a 16 day cruise to the Panama Canal with many friends. We left from San Diego, California, making stops at Cabo San Lucas in Baha, Mexico; the second port was Puerto Vallarta in Mexico, then Puerto Quetzel in GUatenala where we seen the colonial Antiqua; the forth port was Puntarenas, Costa Rica, visiting the coffee and sugar plantations; then a day thru the Panama Canal; the last stop was Cartagena, Columbia. Returned to Fort Lauderdale where we met Millie, a friend from our days at Rartian Arsenal. It was a great trip.
Thank you to all who wished me a happy birthday! We have returned from our trip. Cruising is great. 18 days on a ship. First, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on to Cartagena, Panama Canal, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, San Diego, Vancouver, then home. Loved it all...we agreed that we could have just stayed on the ship and headed to Alaska. Retirement is fantastic!
Returned today from a wonderful 17 day cruise through the incredible Panama Canal. Stops included Colombia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo, San Diego and Vancouver BC (well sort of - we arrived about 8 hours late due to some rockin' n rollin' we encountered in the Pacific). Glad to be home~~~
