    I gained 10 pounds on our last 5 day cruise. I think I would sink the ship on a 21 day cruise.

    You are meant to keep 15 feet away from the penguins but they don't know the rules and they waddle right up to you if you stand still

    Yeah but they are in a zoo but every now and then one gets lost and comes visiting. The water is probually too warm for them, if humans can swim in the water its probually too warm
    How did these ones get up there?
    And I think I would rather be on our ship with all the comforts than this one

    That's cool. I know I'd enjoy that. We humans must be a strange lot to observe down there.

    I drove my daughter's boyfriend 100 miles to pick up a car he bought for her. And then followed him back. The kid has a knack at finding cars cheap. He bought a 2007 Mazda RX3 for $2900. It needs a new front bumper and right front fender and he has them bought for $50. And it needs a power steering pump. He figures when he gets it done he will have $3100 in it and it will be worth. $6000. If she doesn't like it he will sell it and buy her something else.

    I did a restretch of 3 rooms in a house today. No room was wider than 12 feet, the narrowest was about 10 feet. I got a good 3/4 of an inch on most of the wall in each room. Carpet was installed just over 2 years ago.
    Moral of story is................ young installers don't understand the importance of "tight". Most likely because over the years, proper stretching was not taught to them.

    Remember Hi it isn't always the installers fault. I got one I got to do that hasn't been in a year yet and I know it was done right and tight. "done right and tight", I'm a poet and don't know it. Has a little ring to it doesn't it?

    Some are harder to stretch than others, but in the past year, I have been restretching home after home after home................. all installer error.
    Since 1987, I have restretched one of my own installations. .....OK, two, but that was back in the days (80's) when Mohawk had some really funky backing adhesives. You know the ones where they were so stretchy you never knew when stop stretching?
    In my opinion if a carpet needs restretching in less than 5 years, it's 95% related to installer error.

    I power-stretched a 12 x 18 once every summer for three years in a row .

    Now that is not installer error . Piece of soft nylon.
