VM's Comments

I was on a Mexican Riviera cruise on 9-11-01. That night in the showroom we were observing a moment of silence for the horrific events of that morning when the ship started to tilt to the left, more and more and more until glasses were sliding off tables...I think at its greatest it was a 30 degree angle, and the ship was soon righted, but you can imagine what fear there was. After all, if the Twin Towers could be toppled, what disasters couldn't happen? Some people sat all night in the foyers with their lifejackets on, just in case. And I heard tell of one couple who bailed out at the next port of call vowing to go back home by more conventional means--except the travel freezes prevented that, and they had to somehow scramble to the following port of call and crawl back on ship.

Most books were made with vellum, a more supple and higher grade of parchment. And vellum is traditionally made from calfskin (the word is related to "veal").

Hoover Dam has a pivotal role in "Fools Rush In", a rom/com with Matthew Perry and Salma Hayek: the site of the marriage proposal AND the birth of the couple's child.

I have been to Newark Airport and New Brunswick (because of inlaws) and to Florida (same inlaws but in the winter) and I'd rather repeat the former than the latter.
