Comment on Happy National Margarita Day – Belated by Admin.

If you are up to trying local foods… I will start with three beverages. One is a beer called Cusquena… it is like the bud light of Peru. The second is a Pisco Sour, which is a source of national pride. The drink is made of a liquor made in Peru along with other ingredients and could be compared to a margarita. They will be offered to you everywhere. Also… you must try Matte De Coca Hot Tea. It is a fantastic cure for altitude sickness and will be routinely offered to you if you are traveling to the highlands like Maccu Piccu or Cuzco. A common Peruvian dish is Guinea Pig. It is called Cuy. I am an American that lived in Peru for a while, and it took me a while to build up the nerve to eat it. To this day, Cuy continues to be a major part of the diet in Peru and Bolivia, particularly in the Andes Mountains highlands, where they are an important source of protein and a mainstay of Andean folk medicine. Hope this helps. I would be happy to answer any other questions.

Perfect cruise. Wish I was going with you. Key West-I would just walk around and see the town. It’s rather quaint and the excursions there seem to be very expensive. But if you have money, I might take a tour excursion there but the town itself is so cute with hundreds of stores so you might just wander around.

Buy a pie and some limeade, eat some cronch fritters, walk the dock. They have tons of street vendors–selling pictures, painted christmas ornaments, performing acrobats and magicians. If you can, get a seat for the sunset. You can either be in a big group right on the pier or you can go back on your ship and have a drink, but Key West sunsets are amazing.

Cozumel is my favorite cruise destination. I could spend a week there. If you bring snorkel stuff with you, take a cab to the National Park. It’s called Chankanaab National Park. It’s just a few miles away from the port and has some of the best snorkeling on the isle. I took a shore excursion to the park (my husband left his snorkel stuff at home) and we did a clear bottom kayaking and snorkel tour, then had a margarita. thought it was the best shore excursion and had chairs right on the shoreline. it looked just like the Corona commercials.

Belize is a very poor area and if you can only afford to go on one shore excursion do it here. Near the port is like a flea market, and nothing much else. The area is so poor they swarm you when you get off the boat. I took a shore excursion to the Xunantunich Mayan Ruins. They are the best preserved Mayan ruins so if you are going to see any of them, see these. It took the whole day to do it, as its on the border overlooking Guatemala and Honduras. But it was awesome.

Advice on what to bring: lots of one dollar bills. if you buy anything from Belize, it will be cheap and they won’t have change. Bring something with sleeves since you may get burned at the ruins (no shade). Underwater camera of course for snorkeling. Go to the art auction. Wait til the last day to go to the ship spa as often you can get good deals. Go to all the buffets and try to eat at more than just the dining room and Lido deck (there are probably 20 places to eat on the ship and I never make it to more than just the Lido deck for lunch). Is it your first cruise or just your first cruise to Western Caribbean? Email me if you have any questions on what to bring.

No real advice, just enjoy yourself. Relax. Tour the ship first thing. Book your shore excursions first thing or online. During those first few hours (if you can board at noon, between noon and 2), a lot of the best shore excursions will fill up so if there is a great one that you are really into book it first. You can always book other ones later if you want. Never be late–the ship will leave you.

I love this cruise and you will have a blast. Happy Cruising!

The library is a good idea. There are also dollar movie theaters. They are not a dollar anymore, but they are still cheap. If you are old enough, you can go to a bar and play pool. You can hang out there for several hours for just the price of a beer and several games of pool. Find one with a good happy hour and a cheap pool table. A lot of museums and zoos have one day per month when they are free, so look that up. You can hike or canoe at a state/national park. You can a place in the city with an excellent view, and take pictures of the sunset. Who knows, you may even enter a photo in a photo contest and win. As for wanting the best of everything, I understand. You want to have a really great place, and don’t want everything to look like it came from the Goodwill store. But what about other future goals? How is wanting to get the best of everything going to affect your future goals? After all, don’t you want some money left over? Don’t you want to invest? That is more important than the best blender. You can make smoothies and margaritas in a $20. blender just as well as you can in a $50. blender. I promise they will taste the same. Just think about it. Perhaps in the library you can look at some investment books. One thing you will see about people who are 50 and already retiring with over a million dollars in the bank is that they started saving and investing when they were young. They were very disciplined when it comes to this, and did not stray from their course. Don’t waste your youth on over priced blenders. You will regret it.

Your guess is as good as mine. This was a while ago, but I remember doing a LOT of searching before I found the answer. I don’t use CF7 anymore, but perhaps their support and documentation has improved since then.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting.


5 Tips for Writing the Perfect Blog Post
If you use WordPress, or Blogger, or any other modern blogging tool for that matter, the search engines are “pinged” and know right away that you have made a post. So, don’t worry about submitting it to search engines manually (and for heaven’s sake, don’t pay someone who claims to do that)!

In general, the best method nowadays is to generate some social traffic. Post a link to you post to Facebook, Twitter, pin your post’s featured image to Pinterest.


Catchy Headlines
Business Models are simulations of actual business functioning.
They act as ideal real life examples,and help participants actively discuss the pros and cons of the situation given.

A business Model offers a Full Account of any particular Business Scenario. Readers of this model/ Participants are then asked to discuss the strengths and weaknessess of it. Put it simply, one has to SWOT analyze the Business Model based on different parameters.

Each participant comes up with his/her own views on the subject. Cumulative views and different view points are then listed and ranked based on their importance and relevance.

Thus at the end of the session, a business models suitability and viability is drafted and conclusions are drawn thereon.

Hence it is said, that Business Models act as Good Simulators.


Search Engine Optimization
A search engine is a service provided by some company (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, etc.) which will search through millions of web pages for keywords that a person types into a field. For instance, if I type “Puppy” into a search box on Google’s web site, there are currently 40,800,000 matches available. If the search provider has a good search algorithm in their software, then the most relevant pages should be listed first. In my case, I’m a happy searcher, because after the Google Image samples, the first result listed is the Puppy Linux website, which is the only Puppy I would ever be searching for online. Most search providers keep track of what websites people will actually visit after doing a search. They then use the results to make sure those pages are closer to the top of the list for the next time someone searches for the same keyword(s).

Image search optimization is about using images on your website to draw more “click-throughs” from the search provider, thereby raising your rank in the search list. This, in turn, helps to ensure that you keep getting more visits to your site. A neat article I just found by typing “image search optimization” into Google Search is linked below.
