Take a ten minute break, and, in your mind, design an imaginary cruise...

Call it your dream cruise!

Someone has to be contributing to SS, we can't all be collecting.

@Bruce - don't think I haven't thought about it. I'm an IT geek, I've certainly thought about landside ops at a minimum.

I would allways tell my kids (boreness comes from within ).

Being bored is something that I don't have time for.

I've had many interesting jobs .If one bored me I quit . I do not miss working but I do miss the people I worked with . I am in e-mail contact with many but due to physical limitations there I only a few that I get together with socially (their limitations,not mine) .
