Our Vacation

Pop Rocks and I just returned from a week in the Jamaican sun! I am not tan nor am I burned. I am happily as pale as when I left. I don't tan and finally accepted that I never would several years ago. I (somewhat) happily apply my 50 or higher sunscreen whenever I am out in the sun. I joke that I work hard to stay this pale. 

So anyway... here we are on our way to the resort:

Don't let his expression fool you, Pop Rocks was extremely excited to be in Jamaica! So after two flights, three airports and one long bus ride we arrived at our resort. This was our second trip to a Sandals resort, the first was our honeymoon, also to Jamaica, just a different resort.

Anyway we spent a lot of time in the sun. Some much need quality time with each other. And a lot of time missing our Mary. 

We also had fun getting different towel creations each day. This was our first one.

I say its a snail, Pop Rocks disagrees and said it was a rabbit without ears, what do you think it is?


  1. Spongebob? That square construction plus the two short legs, sunglasses and your location in Jamaica, near the ocean?

    Pale is good. Being pale now means looking fifteen years younger than your age thirty years from now.

  2. Diane,
    That's what I'm hoping for... As long as I don't look like Spongebob... ever!

  3. How fun! Looks like a relaxing place. I don't tan hard to take photos in the sunlight because I'm just so bright. ha! :p SPF all the way! Did you see that yahoo article about the tanning mom? Yikes! Anyhow, have a wonderful weekend.

  4. I'd go with snail too!Looks like you had an amazing time, Have a wonderful weekend!

How to Complain

After yesterday's post, I though I should provide something a little more helpful to my readers. Here are some tips I've developed from answering customer service calls and emails from time to time. You may have some other extremely helpful tips, feel free to leave them in the comments so we can all benefit!
Be Specific. This is definitely my number one tip. If you aren't specific it means that the person on the other end doesn't know details that can be used to rectify the situation. Also, the more details you provide the more credibility you lend to the situation. If it is a reoccurring incident call each time it happens. From a customer service standpoint, we would rather rectify the situation now than find about it in two days when it has happened two more times.Don't Rant, Yell, or Scream. Tell someone you would like to complain and then do it with a cool head. This may mean that you need to write an email complaint versus getting on the phone. Keep in mind th…

Mary Poser by Angel A.

I just finished the book Mary Poser: Butterflies and White Lies as Bollywood Comes to Nashville. In this book, dutiful pastor's daughter Mary meets Bollywood producer, Simha Das at the Nashville Film Festival and the many different events that follow send Mary on a roller coaster of emotions. When her ex finds out about Simha he appears back in Mary's life wanting to make amends. Her critical mother has to have opinions about everything in her family's life. Her brother, sister and father are all restless with their lives that have been lived in the same city. Her best friend from childhood is devious and manipulative. Plus, there are lots of other characters with their own set of problems.

What will the result be? Will Mary completely change or will she stay in the life that she has always known? 

I would tell you to read it to find out, but don't, seriously don't. 

This was by far the worst book I have read in a while. The events in Mary's life are described in …

Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London by Creek Stewart

Creek Stewart of "Fat Guys in the Woods" fame released his first novel, Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London, on February 14. I just finished it and I was very impressed. 

Omaha is a boy scout and since the loss of his father the entire world has been turned upside down. Now he finds that one of the people nearest to him in life, London, is in trouble and he has to risk everything to save her.

Will be able to make it to her in time? Will she even be alive when he gets there? What kind of danger will he face on the way there? 

Find out the answers by reading the book. (What'd you think I was going to say?)

I really did enjoy this book. It was a gripping story and only took me three sittings to get it finished. A lot of the plot hits closer to home than I would like. An added bonus was some of the survival skills that I picked up along the way. 

I could really relate to Omaha as a character. He is a quiet person that prefers the outdoors to being around people. While b…
