The spring ratings are out again, and in the 35+-age bracket we are again in # 1 spot in all of Ontario in our time slot, and a very respectable # 2 in the all age group category.

Our CD: A little Breath of Scotland” continues to sell very well, and we had to do a second pressing. It is an ideal gift, and at $14.99 doesn’t break the bank either! You can check out some of the stores that carry the CD by checking the show notes at

I can now let you know our plans for next winters cruise. We have obtained space on Holland America’s Veendam, and we will depart Toronto for Tampa on February 3rd, for an overnight stay in Clearwater/St.Petes, before boarding our ship for a 14 night cruise .
The itinerary includes stops in San Juan, St. Thomas, Dominica, Barbados, Grenada, Margarita Island, Bonaire, Aruba and finally Grand Cayman.

I know many will enjoy the chance to sail again on a smaller ship, with just 1200 passengers. Details on costing will be available in a couple of weeks, but I can tell you that because of the size of the ship, balcony cabins are at a premium, so very early booking will be essential to guarantee a balcony on this 14 night cruise.
