I took the blog offline for a while. Somebody used some of my posts against me. They weren't negative posts, they were positive. I was aware that I might be sued if I slandered or libeled someone. So I left only the positive stuff and even made it look better than I believed things were. My own words were used to hurt me, to make me look stupid. I did. I looked really stupid. So, I thought I would never blog again.
But, time has passed. I miss the blog. I miss the act of putting words out onto the world wide web. I will try to be more careful this time. But, truth is, people will use things against you. It is a reflection of who they are, not who I am. There is no protection in this world from bad people, no total protection. But, I can try to echo hope. I can be myself and share my thoughts.
Learn from me, anything you put out there can and will be used against you. You have the right to remain silent and sometimes that is the smartest choice. But, hey, I have already been made to look really stupid, so I will risk the consequences.

Juneau, the capital of Alaska, can not be reached by roadway. You fly or you sail to get to Juneau. There is a 30 something roadway that goes through the city and concludes at mountain and sea at both ends. We sailed into Juneau in the afternoon.

The second full day of the cruise, Tuesday, was mostly on the water. We were heading toward the farthest north we would go, to Juneau, Alaska. Juneau is quite a ways from Seattle, as the boat sails. But we entered the passage where there were islands and the sea was less rough.
