Monday, January 2, 2012 – At Sea – Atlantic Ocean – Cloudy/Drizzly – Low 60s

A semi bumpy night…

Not a nice day at sea…

I didn’t even try to go outside to get the picture below – too cold and windy.

Today is lecture marathon day:  Larry Kuznetz’s lecture on ETs is at 10:00 AM.  My lecture “DNA Testing: Solving History’s Mysteries”  is scheduled for 11:15 AM opposite Roger McGuinn’s final lecture and Q/A and Larry’s Q&A.  Christine gives her final lecture on the Statue of Liberty at 3:30 PM.

After all of that, all of the lecturers are taking part in a “Meet the Lecturers” get together in the Winter Garden at 4:30 PM.

I actually attended all of the lectures on this last day.  I am a bit anxious about competing directly with Roger McGuinn and Larry’s Q&A Session.  Apparently, we have distinct audiences since I still had about 250 attendees.  Again, very good feedback on this lecture.  Larry had about 35 people at his session opposite mine. 

The Meet and Greet was sparsely attended but still an interesting way to meet with guests. 

The Meet and Greet went a bit long so we changed quickly and headed to our final dinner on QM2.  Another nice meal – Seared Sole and Pasta with Sundried Tomatoes and Spinach (also ordered the Veggie Item – Pita Bread with hummus).  All good.

After dinner, we listed to the harpist, Margaret McMahon, in the Chart Room, until it got to loud to bear.

In the theater, we sat next to some guests who lived in Libertyville a few years ago and knew our neighbors.  The father of the woman lives in Gurnee now and I am sure I have played golf with him at Heather Ridge.  Small world.

Tonight’s Show:  Variety with David Howarth (who turned out to be our neighbor in the ED) and The Unexpected Boys.  A very nice show.  The Boys are all Broadway vets and are all very good singers – they scored big time with “One Day More” from Les Mis.

Ellen has done a great job of repacking our clothes so we will have to do very little in the morning. 

We move our clocks back one hour tonight and we are hoping that that hour is spent sleeping.

The ship is rolling…
