Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

Tag! You Are It! Part 2 of Comment Tag

And now for my answers to the questions about each of the last ten commenters (am still wondering if that is a word...)!

1. What's your favorite post from #3's blog?
Hmmmmm... on 1st Mate I will pick a favorite recent post on home security. This works for me! But I wonder if I had Jim's shoes and the big guy's work boots out there if it would confuse the potential burglar. I also enjoyed her posts about her Mom and the dealing with a parent who is not the same parent you remember as a child. I could relate... It was so very hard to watch my Dad go downhill and not be able to do the things he could always do before. The man was a helicoptor pilot and then he was unable to walk or go to the restroom. Hell getting old...

2. Has #10 taken any pictures that moved you?
Oh yes! MxSailor’s shot of his head (toilet) restoration “moved” me… NOT! Interior boat restoration photos pretty much torture me ~ been there done that. On boat #3, so really I find them painful reminders. But his paintings do though! Love the Birdman, Budgie and Green Parrot ones. Love his colors and soft lines. Check them out.

3. Does #6 reply to comments on his or her blog?
Absolutely. All the time. Jolea has some pretty funny responses too. I can’t wait when I read her soon to be published response, “Yes thanks for asking, I love my new job on this really cool mega yacht! Everyone is nice and wonderful, including the owners, Sting and Trudie. And the pay! Oh it‘s lovely. In fact I‘m sending oodles of money on over to “Meerkat“ in La Paz, just because”.

4. Which part of blogland is #2 from?
Mars. Alaskan Dave Down Under used to be from Sarah Palin land, oops I mean the fine State of Alaska. Now he lives in Australia where he floats around in his pool, takes pictures of birdies and torments Wifey Poo with his puns. Oh and cooks. And bakes. I sure wish we were there for his Holiday Feast!

5. If you could give one piece of advice to #7, what would it be?
Ha ha ha! Me give Roz Savage advice? Okay, how about “Don’t do it! Don’t do it!”. Okay out of everyone out there, this is a person (remember world known ocean single handed rower, rowed across the Atlantic by herself, then just finished rowing from California to Hawaii) that I really don’t want to give advice to. I think she is just fine how she is, but here I go anyway:
“Eat your Wheaties”? Uh no, that’s not it… Oh yeah! As Alan from “Toshal” would say:

6. Have you ever tried something from #9's blog?
Actually yes! Overboard has great wine suggestions! Oh that’s not right, she tried the wine I suggested. If I could find the food she cooks and have her recipes I would definitely try that! But her winner was the alternative to disposable womens’ monthly feminine products. There, see how lovely I said that? I never mentioned the words tampon or pads at all. See, all you men didn’t even flinch! Amazing. Seriously everyone should check this out.

7. Has #1 blogged something that inspired you?
Actually quite often! Jomamma had to dress as her hero for a “hero day” at school (where she works) and dressed as her husband. He is her hero. That was wonderful. That one will stay with me for a long, long time. I also enjoy her relationship with her kids. If I had kids, that would be inspirational to me. She treats them like humans and pretty much lets them live (well, they are adults after all!). But it’s her relationships that inspire me. Well done Jomamma!

8. How often do you comment on #4's blog?
Pretty much every time Ray & Lucy post! They are long-term friends and I really look forward to reading what they are up to and hearing about their lives. I love how we have re-connected through this! So much more fun than email… And I can say anything to them or be really sarcastic and they will still love me no matter what. So all the time.

9. Do you wait for #8 to post excitedly?
Uh not really… Markitos doesn’t post all that often, but I do take a look at his new posts I liked the photo he included with his daughter… Sorry I’m not anxiously awaiting your new posts M…

10. How did #5's blog change your life?
Her starting of her blog changed my life! I had to give Capricorn Cat blog lessons and show her how to post instead of adding more page elements! So it was afternoon lessons on “Meerkat”, questions via email and then enjoyment of seeing her blog transform.

Okee dokee, so all you mentionees up above can either do what I did in these two posts or not. The first part you list the last 10 people who have commented on their blog and say a little about them.
The second part you answer the above questions.
Takes time!
And Alaskan Dave you obviously aren't an "official mentionee" as you have already done this. Or we can go back and forth and tag each other endlessly for the rest of our blogging lives.
And Roz Savage you obviously aren't in this group either ~ go educate! Go row!

Happy Christmas Eve everyone!
