Here is a little article I wrote: Pictures of Jamaica. As the name indicates, it focuses on quite a few pictures of Jamaica. Some of them are really beautiful, and others are just kind of fun images. This week would be a good time for you to enjoy them! The pictures are collected from selected artists and photographers who show and sell their work at Zazzle
Some day, I'd love take a cruise that stops at Kingston, the capital, on August 4, just to see for myself how Jamaicans celebrate their country's birthday. My daughter and I visited Grand Cayman on that crown colony's birthday, and enjoyed a very special day in the midst of the celebrations in Georgetown.

Have you ever thought of wearing nautical themed fashions or accessories when you go on a cruise? It's not so far fetched ...
For example, a gentleman mightwear a nautical themed tie to dinner one night. A lady might enjoy having an anchor pendant necklace.
Or, how about a cute T shirt or nautical outfit for your young cruiser?

Here are several sites you might enjoy. There are some nice ideas for nautical themed cruise wear and accessories on these three pages:

MANNED SPACE FLIGHT
Space Shuttle Atlantis retured to earth for the last time. The good news is, she brought herself and her crew home safely. The bad news is that she'll never do it again. Nor will any other shuttle. NASA's manned space flight program has been scuttled. And along with it, thousands of jobs, and the space dominance of the U S of A. It was a sad day.

A madman set off a bomb in central Oslo then proceded to a youth camp being held on an island. There, dressed as a policeman, he shot and killed at least 84 young people.
There is NO reason for civilized human beings to behave this way towards one another. Unlike the work that NASA does, it's NOT rocket science. Just be nice to everyone.
Today, we are holding the people of Norway in our hearts. They have our deepest sympathies and most fervent prayers.
The past week was not one that will soon be forgotten for several reasons... but Norway is uppermost in our minds right now.
It's my sincere hope that the week ahead will bring different ... and much happier news.

This will mean that the three main players in the U.S. cruise market will now be on the ticker.
The cruise line has said it also has plans for listing on the NASDAQ, as NCLH.
Wonder if NCL will be offering discounts or OBC's to stockholders?
