Happy Anniversary 39 Years!!!

Happy Anniversary
October 23, 1970-2009
Leif and January
Norwegian Sun Alaska Cruise
"The best is yet to come."

An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today,
the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.
We are all a little weird and life's a little weird,
and when we find someone
whose weirdness is compatible with ours,
we join up with them
and fall in mutual weirdness
and call it love.
One Flaw In Women

Women have strengths that amaze men.....

They bear hardships and they carry burdens,

but they hold happiness, love and joy.


They smile when they want to scream.


They sing when they want to cry.

They cry when they are happy

and laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in...

They stand up to injustice.

They don't take "no" for an answer

when they believe there is a better solution.

They go without so their family can have.

They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.


They love unconditionally.

They cry when their children excel

and cheer when their friends get awards.

They are happy when they hear about

a birth or a wedding.


Their hearts break when a friend dies.

They grieve at the loss of a family member,

yet they are strong when they

think there is no strength left.

They know that a hug and a kiss

can heal a broken heart.


Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you

to show how much they care about you.


The heart of a woman is what

makes the world keep turning.

They bring joy, hope and love.


They have compassion and ideas.

They give moral support to their

family and friends.


Women have vital things to say

and everything to give.

HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN,

IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH

Remember Stop Whining

Start Smiling

and if that doesn't work
then start eating chocolate,
lots and lots of it!

January Jones' Wonderful and Wacky... Words of Wisdom!

Stop Whining



Start Smiling

and if that doesn't work
then start eating Chocolate
lots and lots of it!.

Welcome to:

January Jones'
Wacky and Wonderful
Words of Wisdom


Keeper

I grew up in the 50's with practical parents. A mother, God love her, who washed aluminum foil after she cooked in it, then reused it.

She was the original recycle queen, before they had a name for it...

A father who was happier getting old shoes fixed than buying new ones.

I can see them now, Dad in trousers, tee shirt and a hat and Mom in a house dress, lawn mower in one hand, and dish-towel in the other. It was the time for fixing things. A curtain rod, the kitchen radio, screen door, the oven door, the hem in a dress Things we keep.

It was a way of life, and sometimes it made me crazy. All that re-fixing, eating, renewing, I wanted just once to be wasteful. Waste meant affluence. Throwing things away meant you knew there'd always be more.

But then my mother died, and on that clear summer's night, in the warmth of the hospital room, I was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't any more.

Sometimes, what we care about most gets all used up and goes away....never to return. So... while we have it... it's best we love it.... and care for it... and fix it when it's broken........ and heal it when it's sick.

This is true. for marriage..... and old cars..... and children with bad report cards..... and dogs with bad hips.... and aging parents..... and grandparents.

We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it. Some things we keep. Like a best friend that moved away or a classmate we grew up with.

There are just some things that make life important, like people we know who are special........ and so, we keep them close!

I received this from someone who thinks I am a 'keeper', so I've sent it to the people I think of in the same way.. Now it's your turn to send this to those people that are "keepers" in your life.

Good friends are like stars....

You don't always see them, but you know they are always there. Keep them close!

TEN THINGS GOD WON'T ASK ON THAT DAY.

1.... God won't ask what kind of car you drove.
He'll ask how many people you drove who didn't have transportation.

2. .. God won't ask the square footage of your house.
He'll ask how many people you welcomed into your home.

3.... God won't ask about the clothes you had in your closet.
He'll ask how many you helped to clothe.


4... God won't ask what your highest salary was.
He'll ask if you compromised your character to obtain it.

5... God won't ask what your job title was.
He'll ask if you performed your job to the best of your ability.

6.... God won't ask how many friends you had.
He'll ask how many people to whom you were a friend.

7... God won't ask in what neighborhood you lived.
He'll ask how you treated your neighbors.

8... God won't ask about the color of your skin.
He'll ask about the content of your character.

9... God won't ask why it took you so long to seek Salvation.
He'll lovingly take you to your mansion in heaven,

and not to the gates of Hell.

10... God won't have to ask how many people you forwarded this to, He already knows your decision.

Daniel Negreanu, The Poker Kid visits January Jones


Today we had Daniel Negreanu as my guest on Whine Time with January Jones and it was one of the most enjoyable interviews that I've ever done.

Daniel and I played together in The World Series of Golf and even though he took me out on the 10th hole I loved playing and meeting him.

He is one of the most positive and encouraging people in the world. Even though, he is very competitive, he still has so much fun doing what he loves doing.....playing poker and golf. He's golfing everyday now and promoting his Poker Stars. com website.

Sweet Spot Golf and The 10! on Whine Time with January Jones


I'm really looking forward to my interview with Brian Alman of Sweet Spot Golf and his partner Bob Aube who started Wilhemina 7 and is now working on The 10! It is an incredible exciting concept and I can't wait to share it with all my listeners this Thursday at 9 am PT on www.VoiceAmerica.com at Whine Time with January Jones!

The 10! is an unprecedented concept OF promoting, marketing and branding TEN professional female athletes from TEN different sports derived from an elimination drama reality series.

Over 20 athletes are being considered and are hoping for a chance at the 10! The sports include golf, tennis, surfing, snowboarding, basketball, softball, swimming, skiing, speed skating, BMX racing and track and field. Episodes are currently being drafted utilizing the burgeoning area of internet television with interactive components attached. Discussions with production and networks have begun.

CEO and Founder Bob Aube, who has a propensity for “out of the box” sports ventures like the National Golf League (a pro golf league of teams) and the Wilhelmina Seven, (seven LPGA players) has come up with the concept that is capturing the attention of the entertainment and sports arenas.

Aube explains “Imagine the demographics of an audience watching contestants represented by Extreme Sports, Winter and Summer Olympics, WNBA and LPGA all in one show. It will be compelling television.” Aube added that the integrity of the women will be retained throughout the show as the athletes will be promoted as healthy role models, and represent “positive imaging” reality.

The marketability of the 10! allows for a wider base of consumer products from apparel to athletic equipment. According to a recent study by A.T. Kearney, a consulting firm in Boston, women have the final say in 80 percent of all consumer purchases. “Maybe companies are missing their targets with emphasis on their male counterpart athletes,” explains Aube, “those numbers are eye-opening and must be recognized by the branding executives.

Corporate America needs to look for value and a return on their advertising dollars these days. Companies who want to improve their image in the eyes of women surely could do so by partnering and supporting the 10!”

10! has attracted an impressive management team including Wendy Newman, founder of Person-Centered Branding® and the official personal brand coach for the LPGA. Other marketing and entertainment executives have joined the team, all with high hopes of creating a new an exciting brand with some unique appeal. Other sports executives agree, according to Jane Schonberger, Publisher and Editor of WomenTalkSports.com, PrettyTough.com and former Disney executive,

“I think the 10! is a fantastic idea and Bob seems to be gathering momentum with his crusade to make a difference in women’s sports. We’re in agreement on the need to change the paradigm in media portrayal of female athletes and have been in discussions with some partnering scenarios.

His enthusiasm for this project is infectious!” Aube is not hampered by the current economic climate, and explains, “With the intention of creatively changing the visibility of women’s sports, the current economic climate can actually support our marketing strategies.”

Sweet Spot Golf & Wilhemina 7




















I disappointed that my interview with Daniel Negreanu will have to be re-scheduled for later in the month. However in the meantime, I am looking forward to interviewing Brain Alman and his partner, Bob Aube this coming Thursday when we discuss their company Sweet Spot Golf and hear all about the Wilhemina 7.....the ulitmate LPGA golf babes!!


The Wilhelmina 7

The Wilhelmina Artist Management, a division of the New York modeling agency, has chosen seven LPGA players, including Kim Hall, right, and Anna Grzebien, and dubbed them the "Wilhelmina 7." The agency will seek sponsorships and endorsement deals for the women in an effort to show a different side of professional golf. Take a look at these pros on and off the course.

WGN America World Series of Golf Premieres with Jesus Ferguson and January Jones
















Chris "Jesus' Ferguson getting some advice from my friend, Greg, one of my "Be a Smiley...Not a Whiney!" gallery supporting me during the World Series of Golf. Actually Chris confided in me that poker players are much bigger whiners than golfers! Of course that is probably because Chris ("Jesus" to poker players) beats more poker players than golfers. I just watched his latest commercial for Full Tilt Poker. net and he looks like the badest, meanest guy in Veags but he really is such a sweetheart . I loved playing golf with him and hope to interview him soon on my radio show.

World Series of Golf premiered this weekend on WGN America and it was so much fun to finally see the show and watch all the other players do their things while getting in a little promo for my book and radio show. It is reality golf played with real people who are trying to play golf in front of television cameras !!!!!!!! Needless to say, the premise is amusing and somethime even amazing.

The good news for me is that I'm not shown playing golf in the first episode just partying and socializing and that's what I do best. be sure to tune in next weekend for more reality golf.

Also, I wanted to share wity everyone the cutest cartoon that Steve Pollastrini sent with our dear friend, Maxine's mantra on Whining! Thanks so much, Steve!

World Series of Golf fun to watch!

Ed Freeman Medal of Honor Recipient RIP June 25th 2009

Ed Freeman

You're a 19-year-old kid. You're critically wounded and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley, 11-14-1965, LZ X-ray, Vietnam. Your infantry unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in.

You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns, and you know you're not getting out. Your family is half way around the world, 12,000 miles away and you'll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.

Then, over the machine gun noise, you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter and you look up to see an unarmed Huey, but it doesn't seem real because no Medi-Vac markings are on it.

Ed Freeman is coming for you. He's not Medi-Vac, so it's not his job, but he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire, after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come.

He's coming anyway.

And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire as they load 2 or 3 of you on board.

Then he flies you up and out, through the gunfire to the doctors and nurses.

And he kept coming back, 13 more times, and took about 30 of you and your buddies out, who would never have gotten out.

Medal of Honor Recipient Ed Freeman died on Wednesday, June 25th, 2009, at the age of 80, in Boise, ID. May God rest his soul.

Medal of Honor Winner Ed Freeman!
Since the media didn't give him the coverage he deserves, send this to every red-blooded American you know.

THANKS AGAIN, ED, FOR WHAT YOU DID FOR OUR COUNTRY.
RIP

Sarah Palin Whiner of The Week video U-Date!














I'm not the only one to name Sarah Palin the Whiner of The Week.

BE sure to watch this great video from newsy.com

http://www.newsy.com/videos/palin_s_questionable_decision

Sarah Palin Whiner of The Week from January jones

It was very easy to select Governor Sarah Palin as The Whiner of The Week!

Palin's Pathos by Steve Chapman Minority of One

July 6, 2009 3:41 pm

Even if she regards the news media as a mob of hyenas, I can almost feel sorry for Sarah Palin. I suspect it's hard to imagine how intensely exposed a person feels when she goes from being an obscure governor to a household name in the blink of an eye. And I can hardly blame her for wanting to escape the ceaseless scrutiny that goes with her fame and possible ambitions. Palin didn't ask to be nominated for vice president, and it wasn't really her fault that in a presidential campaign, she was in way over her head.

But she seems to think she's the only national candidate who ever got run through a brutal media gauntlet. She isn't. Ask Dan Quayle, Tom Eagleton, or Geraldine Ferraro. Gary Hart had reporters staking out his house to catch him in adultery. Joe Biden's 1988 presidential race got torpedoed by news revelations about a variety of embarrassing misdeeds. John Edwards had The National Enquirer lying in ambush this year, long after his race was over.

If you run for high office, you can expect every aspect of your life to be examined. And if there are things you'd rather keep to yourself, you're in the wrong place. Or, as Harry Truman put it, if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

It was hardly a surprise that an inexperienced Alaskan politician would not be skilled with questions about foreign affairs and federal policy. Palin's greater failing was refusing to admit that she had a lot to learn--or, evidently, doing anything to overcome her weaknesses. Instead, she made herself out to be an innocent victim of a partisan press. In doing that, she looked not just underprepared but dishonest.

Many Republicans liked her because they saw her as what she claimed to be--a fighter. But her resignation brings to mind a boxer named Roberto Duran, whose chief claim to fame is that he abruptly halted a title fight that, to his surprise, he was losing. "No mas," he reportedly said. It was a surprise ending--almost as big a surprise as Palin's.

Michael Jackson Fans Cure for Dying without Whining!

Phoenix, AZ July 1, 2009 – Recently there has been an epidemic of celebrities dying followed by massive outbursts of whining from their fans. It started with the beloved Ed McMahon's expected demise, followed by Farrah Fawcetts untimely passing and then the unexpected death of Michael Jackson. These deaths have been followed with sadness and whining from their fans, especially so with the passing of The King of Pop!
January Jones, the author, of Thou Shalt Not Whine…The Eleventh Commandment addresses this phenomena in her recently published book and on her weekly radio show, Whine Time with January Jones on www.voiceamerica.com

Ms. Jones' "Dying without Whining Cure" from her tome could be the solution for many bereaved and inconsolable fans of Michael Jackson.

She states that even though it may seem morbid, "To initiate this healing, try to think of all the things you will never have to do again once you are dead" You will be surprised at how long a list it will be. "Things like standing in line, dealing with in-laws, and worrying about money are popular choices"

To quote Ms. Jones, "You can also add dying to this list since it's also something you'll never have to do again once it's done"

Hopefully, the many bereaved fans will find consolation in the knowledge that their beloved Icon, Michael Jackson, could be on the ultimate adventure in his own eternal Neverland!

January Jones hopes to help the bereaved fans discover how to heal by focusing on doing all the healthy and sometimes silly things their inner child needs to do now…………… things that they've put off for far too long!

Megan Fox Winner of the Day and Perez Hilton Whiner of the Day





Winner of The Day is Megan Fox
A One Woman Transformer

Megan Fox is everywhere and such a lovely gal. She is so hot right now and we are seeing her on every TV show and magazine. Megan is a one women Transformer who is a real "Smiley" and not a "Whiney!"



Whiner of the Day is Perez Hilton

A Great Big Cry Baby

Lately Perez, who I usually get a big kick out of, is annoying me with his attacks on The Black Eyed Peas and Fergie, one of my favorite gals. So come on Perez, stop with being a "Whiney" and start being a sweet "Smiley" again! !!!

Whine Time with January Jones

Be sure to listen to my interview today with Pam Swensen, CEO of EWGA Executive Women's Golf Association on Whine Time with January Jones.

I've posted above the fun picture from my interview with the EWGA representative at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando. If you want to learn more about EWGA go to there website and join in the fun and get the scoop on some great networking opportunites. I will be going back to play in the EWGA Golf Tournament on July 1oth at The Riverview Golf Course preceeding the Ladies U. S. Open in two weeks.

In Memory of Farrah Fawcett

It was with great sadness that we learned of Farrah's passing yesterday. What an amazing woman and she will missed by everyone. Her brave battle against cancer was an example to everyone who is facing this horrible disease. Farrah died at St. John's Hospital here in Santa Monica and it brought back sad memories for me of when I lost my best friend, Jan Weber, from the same disease at St. John's in 2001.

Like Farrah, Jane waged a three year battle and at her funeral we played the ABBA song "I Believe in Angels" and I know that Jane will be there to welcome Farrah along with all the other heavanly angels. May they rest in peace and they will always be in our hearts and thoughts.

EWGA PGA Show Women's Golf with January Jones

video

I will be interviewing Pam Swensen, the CEO of EWGA Executive Women's Golf Association tomorrow morning Thursday, June 25th at 9 am PT on my show "Whine Time with January Jones" on www.voiceamerica.com.

Here is a video that I did last January with Kathy and Ashley from EWGA at the Orlando PGA Merchandise Show. They are adorable and I can't wait to visit with their leader, Pam, tomorrow and hear more about women executives who are combing work and pleasure by taking their clients out to the golf course. This is a great group for women who want to network and make golf connections on and off the course. There are all sorts of unlimited opportunities for women who golf....just ask me about that since I will soon become the new Susan Boyle of Women's Golf when The World Series of Golf on WGN starts their summer season.

Air Force Academy and Happy Birthday Barney!


114th Aviation Company Reunion and Happy "85th" Birthday to Barney Huberty!



















Here we are at the magnificent and inspiring Air Force Academy with our friends from The 114th Aviation Company that served to so bravely in Vietnam. Their reunion is a wonderful chance to re-connect with old comrades and meet their families.

Of course, they share war stories but mostly just the ones that make everyone laugh. This is definitely a NO-WHINE ZONE!

Speaking of not whining, I got to help a fellow Michigander from the UP, Barney Huberty, celebrate his 85th birthday with all our friends from The Country Clubs of The World in Bountiful, Utah. I'd never been there before but you can't believe how beautiful Bountiful is!

Our hosts, Tom and Yvette Stark, welcomed all of us to a great golf tournament and a wonderful party at their amazing home.

Dr. Yue Interview on June 18th & Thank You to Pat Hansen KTVA
















Dr. Xio Dong Yue at AATH Convention Las Vegas

KTVA's Pat Hansen

Wow, this has really been a busy week with my fabulous interview with Lynne Palazzi last Thursday on Whine Time with January Jones. Be sure to take the time to listen to our interview. Lynne is such a fun guest with so much energy and enthusiasm for life. Her mantra is "Golf is my Passion and Marketing is my Sport." One correction though for the record, Lynne's official title is:
Lynne Palazzi
CEO pb Marketing Agency
Sports Marketing and Certified Coaching Professional

I just wanted to thank Pat Hansen for the lovely interview that we did at KTVA last Saturday AM. Pat works with seniors so we talked about seniors and whining. It was such a delightful interview even if we were up with the birds. It was so great to see Tom Spence again who has been with KTVA for over 18 years. I always love going back to their studio because they always make me feel so welcome.

Now the big news for this week is that I will be on the road and in the air traveling to Bountiful, Utah to play in a golf tournament with my wonderful friends, Tom and Yvette Stark, with The Country Clubs of The World. Also Tom represents Tifosi Sunglasses and I was so thrilled to be wearing a red pair when I played in The World Series of Golf to be televised on June 28th on WGN America.

Then after Utah, we are flying into Colorado Springs and going to the Air Force Academy for a reunion of my husband's 114th Aviation Company. I'm sure it will be easy to recognize everyone since we haven't changed that much.......hardly at all!!!

While I am on the road, I will doing an interview on next Thursday, June 18th with Dr. Xiao Dong Yu, a humorist from China. I met Dr. Yue at the AATH convention in Vegas and can't wait to interview him on my show. Dr. Yue graduated from Harvard and Tufts Univeristy and now he is in The Dept. of Applied Social Studies at City University of Hong Kong.

There aren't too many humorists in China and this one is so special that I can't wait to share him with all of my listeners. Interestingly, he learned to speak English by listening to Voice America on the radio at night with his family when he was a little boy. As you can see from the picture abouve, he has the warmest smile and biggest heart in all of Hong Kong.

video



Well I'm finally getting around to sharing some of my video and photos from The World Series of Golf in Las Vegas. You will be seeing lots more when the show airs on WGN starting on June 28th with 13 episodes.

Here is one of my favorite poker guys, Andy Bloch, with me after we both were knocked out of the tournament and neither one of us is whining and we're both wearing our Smiley- Whiney pins to prove it.

The video of Ray Romano with us was taken as I was giving Andy his pin out on the golf course and Ray was politley watchiing and wondering when he would get his pin. He wasn't whing about it but getting close.

By the end of the tournament, we all could have been whining but we weren't! Actually Ray made it further than us and he lost in a playoff so he really played well. Tiy can listen to Andy's interview with my on my show for the June 14th episode when he talks with me about Joan Rivers calling poker players white trash!

Meet Kylie my singing grand-Dog!

I neglected to mention my grand-dog Kylie when I wrote about my grandchildren yesterday. How could I forget the world's most amazing singing dog?

As you can see, Kylie loves to perform and she can sing just about anything but not always in the right key.


Kylie loves Elvis and she her favorite song is Hound Dog, of course! She is a good girl and you can see why she's my favorite when it comes to grand-Dogs ..................even if she is the only one so far!

UP, UP and Away-January and Jill with Pasta and Wine instead of Whining!

You must go and see the Movie "UP" as soon as possible.

We took our grandkids to see it yesterday and it was hard to say who enjoyed it more. We all loved it. It will be a classic for all ages and we'll be watching this one for a long time. It'll be right UP there with all of the Disney movies. You don't need to rent a kid to go but it's more fun when you have a little one with you just watching their faces is so much fun.

Here are all of our grandkids, we have three boys and three girls and who could ask for anything more? It really is true that your grandchildren are your reward for not killing your children.


Be sure to read my Chapter On Grandparents and Whining in my book. Also there is a FREE e-book download posted at my website with The Top Ten Cures for Whining excerpted from my book.

I did my interview with Jill Hendrickson this morning on Whine Time with January Jones and it will be posted tomorrow am. What a fun and informative guest with lots of wonderful and encouraging news about eating PASTA and not feeling guilty.

Back To Normal....With Memories of Jane L. Powell!


Gosh, it''s hard to believe that I've been home now a week since our Alaska Cruise on The NCL Sun. I'm maybe just starting to get back to normal. I've neglected my blog among other things but I've finally got my MoJo back!

I wanted to share this fabulous picture of the legendary Jane L. Powell and myself from our cruise. Jane was a headline performer with an amazing voice. She was fabulous both on the stage and off the stage with all of the passengers and crew. She is such a magnificent lady and beloved by everyone. I felt truly honored to make her acquaintance and enjoy her on stage.

Speaking of enjoying people, I had the honor of interviewing the wonderful Dr. Beth Erickson on Whine Time with January Jones last Thursday and I'm finally getting the world out. Dr. Beth is such a perfect guest with lots of great info presented in such a fun and easy going interview. I loved talking to her and hope you will find the time to listen to our interview. She is is a very wise and sensible women and a delightful guest.

No Whining about NCL Alaska Cruise



video

Home again, home again and with such wonderful memories of our cruise to Alaska on The Norwegian Sun NCL. Here I am saying a fond good bye to our wonderful Cruise Director Pedro Serra who is the ultimate host. The Norwegian Sun is now my favorite cruise ship with everyone being so friendly and the ship itself has such a marvelous atmosphere. It is elegant but in a casual way.

As for the food, it was unbelievable and we so enjoyed having escargot with every evening meal.

As you can see for yourself, I loved sharing my book, Thou Shalt Not Whine with Captain Tommy Stensrud for his reading enjoyment. The highlight of our trip was going up to the bridge as his guests when we entered Sawyer Glacier. I gave the commentary and will be posting it on YouTube later this week.

NCL SUN Alaska Cruise Ship Smileys Only



NCL SUN CRUISE May 23rd

We are headed home to Vancouver on our final day at sea. The seas are smooth and the weather is fabulous. I did the wild life presentation this morning with a big turn out. My crack team with Captain Leif and Rod Proctor gave me outstanding technical support and even laughed at my jokes.

I gave out free autographed copies of my book after each presentation and today two men, Noel Winzenried and Steve Meng, were the winners. Neither one of them are whiners but they assured me that they know plenty of whiners and they would spread my no whining message .

Tonight we will be going to the talent show put on by the ship’s crew. What a wonderful crew and they are all Smileys with no Whineys. There are 952 crew members with a full ship of 1900 passengers. After the shows, we’ll be packing our bags and getting ready to disembark in the am and catch our flight back to LA.

Captain Tommy & Captain Leif both Lovers of Lutefisk!

The Captian's bridge on NCL SUN with glass floor window for checking things below.

NCL Sun Cruise May 22, 2009 Skagway was fabulous and the weather perfect. It is such a historical town and there were lots of lovely shops and townspeople (all 800 of them) around to welcome us. We rode The White Pass Railway to the top of Chilkoot Pass with great history and even greater views.

The highlight of our evening once back on board was The Chocolate Buffet last night. It was over the top and the perfect fantasy for a confirmed chocoholic like myself. I filled my plate but couldn’t even finish it. But I’m not whining about it.

Today is Leif’s birthday so we will be celebrating all day. We started out by giving my Alaskan Glacier presentation. It went really well with the action packed videos that are always fun to watch especially the one on glacier surfing.

The Norwegian Sun is headed south right now in open seas and we’re rock and rolling our way towards home. Tomorrow I will be giving the presentation on Alaskan wildlife. We had a new fellow join our crack traveling staff. Rod Proctor from Alberta Canada has been doing all the video and photo during my presentations. He is the greatest and his Mom is a real life Smiley.

NCL Sun Alaska Cruise No-Whining on The Bridge


















NCL Sun May 20th Glaciers from the Captain’s Bridge


Yesterday we were invited by Captain Tommy Stensrud to join him on the bridge as we enter Tracy Arm Fjord on our way to view Sawyer Glacier. In true Norwegian custom, he offered us coffee and cookies as soon as we entered the bridge. You can never enter a Norwegian home without being offered food and drink without feeling their hospitality.

I gave a commentary on the breathtaking sights as we sailed past majestic mountains and beautiful chunks of ice towards the twin Sawyer glaciers. Alaska is our very favorite cruise.

It is quite an honor to be invited on the bridge. It brought back memories and of his father, grandfather and great grandfathers who were all Norwegian sea captains. There was lots of Norwegian bonding with Captain Tommy as in Yah, Yah and talking about Lutefisk.

Yesterday our ship stopped in Juneau and we explored the Alaskan state capitol. However I didn’t run into Sarah Palin. Juneau is a lovely, charming city and we have had the best weather imaginable for our entire cruise so far.


Today is an off day for me so we’ll kick back and visit at Skagway. We plan to take the White Pass train trip with all of the amazing history and scenic beauty. Then I will be speaking two more times on our return trip to Vancouver about glaciers and Alaskan wild life.

So far this has been the best working trip we’ve ever taken. The NCL feels so much like being at home in Norway and the staff and passengers are wonderful.
Leif wants me to do this full time so we can spend the rest of our life being wined and dined on cruise ships!
