What we are up to now… April 6, 2020

What are you up to while quarantine at home? We are keeping busy, so not to keep bored.

Sushi at Sea

Were back from our cruise, but then I came down with a fever of 103, and a cough. Since I work in a hospital, prior to returning they made me get tested and turns out I only have a stinker flu – my temp is down to 100 at this point so on my wayContinue reading “Sushi at Sea”

Bacardi Tour, Puerto Rico

What should we do other than eat, swim, sleep in late, enjoy each other, and hang out on a Beach…. we decided to Tour the Bacardi Distillery. We Uber it over… and David says as we pull into the Bacardi complex, they should name a building after you. I do love Bacardi Silver Rum! WeContinue reading “Bacardi Tour, Puerto Rico”

Y-12

As I am driving thru Oakridge, Tn – I see atomic symbols everywhere – so my interest is peaked.  Following signs to the Y-12 museum – I have to investigate what this unusual atomic symbol is with the name of Y-12.  I learn Y-12 is a national security complex tucked away and rarely heard andContinue reading “Y-12”

5 things I wish I knew before I went to Cuba

  I knew you cannot use credit cards in Cuba, and they have cigars and rum, but I did not know….   We were told we had to have a cultural tour booked or we would not even be allowed to step off the Cruise ship (or if we flew in – not step offContinue reading “5 things I wish I knew before I went to Cuba”

Tropicana Club, Cuba

I figured out how to add videos! Better later than never! so this is older post updated. We only had two days in Havana, Cuba – so we made the most of it – a day of everything, then an evening trip to the Tropicana Club.  I would describe it as an outdoor larger versionContinue reading “Tropicana Club, Cuba”
