Hello all I am back from my Cruise on NCL Gem and it was not pretty. Let me tell you my story . I went on a cruise for 12 days to the Caribbean. It was a great deal on a ship that I thought would be good because I sailed on it before NCL GEM out of New York. Anyway it sucked!
Here's why..

 The food was all beef and pork and cold all day long. That's all they served  most of the time. It was pure salt and tasteless. They offered different nights in the buffet like Asian night, Russian night , Caribbean night but all the food was bland. Their dining room was decorated nice but the food still sucked. I had the specialty dinning package  food you guessed sucked there to.

The entertainment I have seen better in high school plays and  on America's got talent. Plus  it was the same 2 years ago when I went so I passed on the shows.

The other entertainment like the lounge bands were not good either and they nicked and dimed you for everything from selling jewelry, art, game show cards, lotteries etc. [. The  staff was clueless and didn't care about anything most of them anyway. I had heard from a passage that about 50  people from the staff quit when we were in St Kitts. So the mangers had to take over. Now you know that's bad when your employees quit during a cruise.

Over all the trip was not so good But.....

The good parts were the people we met were so nice, some of the staff was friendly and the islands  that we went to were warm and beautiful.

I got some great perks from this ship like free specialty dinning, $300 on board credit, all my excursions was free.  So I can't complain but so much. They even had a coffee maker in my room thank good I had my own coffee with me. Their coffee  on the ship was nasty.

Would I go on that ship again no. Would I cruise with someone else yes. As long as I get a lot of bang for my buck.

                                                So that's my story what did you think?

 Hello all, well here's my story today. I am disappointed in Bj's. I went over to the store yesterday because I have a gift certificate and I wanted to know how long I had  before it expired . I went into the store that I had not been in for over a year. I used a  coupon for the free 3 month membership.  That helped me from paying for a membership that I would not be using. I think they charge $50 for the year. 

So I looked around while I was there the lines were pretty long I guess since Thanksgiving is around the corner people are starting to stock up. But you know what I found..... That I can get  my food items that I normally would buy in BJ's cheaper somewhere else.

Yes I was disappointed. I knew that Bj's would give me more bank for my buck but really it doesn't. It's about the same prices that I would spend in other places and the boxes on the items I use to buy   are much smaller then they use to be. So I figure that when I do decide to use my gift certificate I will only be buying the things I really need. Since most of the stuff I would normally buy there I can get cheaper elsewhere. Plus their bakery department is not as good looking as it use to be.  Oh BJ's you disappoint me so....
                                               So that's my story what do you think?

 Hello all, well here's the a story for the week. I am worried. why you might ask? Because I am getting older and the money part of my life along with the health part is worrying me. First let me talk to you about the money part. I depend on my partners income to live. I have not reached an age of retirement yet so my city pension has not kicked in. If my partner was not in the picture my income would go down quite a bit. So I am trying to find alternative ways to stay cheap and have money to live on without using all my saving. Got any suggestions???

The health part is about the same if my partner is no longer in the picture then I am covered for health insurance for 3 years and then..... I have to find a cheap health insurance company to pay for my medical and prescription drugs which I have a few. So right now I am looking in to all of this besides figuring out what we need to sell off in 2019. I know it's a lot right. So how are you doing today?

                                                              So what do you think?
