    I'm not good at negotiating. I usually bring someone with me when I go car shopping because I'll just take whatever the list cost is.

    And another problem is that the "average salary" for my job is all over the place. There's a huge gap in what I've seen online for my job. And I don't know anyone who currently does this job to ask them how much they make.

    Job hunting sucks.

    Also, we were in Malaga today. Visited the Alcazaba and the Archaeology Museum of Malaga, which so happens to be situated near the harbor, and there was a giant cruise ship ankered there. It said Princess Cruises on the side. I remember you took a cruise on the Mediterranean a couple of years ago so I was wondering whether that was with them.

    It was huge, even standing on top of the castle's towers which makes everything look really tiny.
    Yes, we have done 2 Princess cruises to Alaska and the Med. It is a great company and the big ships are fabulous inside.

    Have you ever been to Ronda, Spain? That was our favorite place. The parador there is right on the gorge and was the best place we stayed at in Spain.

    So nope... a little out of our current reach.

    Visited the Caves of Nerja today... wow, I've seen some really beautiful galleries but this one outdid them by a long shot. Some incredible stalactites and -mites. Also, a few creepy ones... literally one that rises up in the middle of an otherwise empty space, ghostly white so I was really glad they had artificial light going cause by the goddesses I would have screamed the place down otherwise.

    I'm nearing the end of mine... Flying home on Saturday, and then back to work on Tuesday (cause Monday is Armistice Day).

    And then it's countdown to the next one...

    Yay- I was finally able to log on. They pushed through a security thing at work and none of us have been able to access much of anything online...which is unfortunate since we use WebEx for most of our meetings since we work at home. Oh well. I have some catching up to do on what I've missed.

    Yes, but I just saw a good article on negotiating on CNBC. It was called "I got 10k more when I negotiated my salary- here's the exact script I used." If you don't find that one, I'm sure you'll find lots of others. I don't enjoy that aspect of job hunting either.

    I've yet to take a cruise. I have this irrational fear of being trapped on the ship. I really would love to do a river cruise on the Rhine.

    I get seasick so I'll never do a cruise.

    Though funnily enough, I don't get seasick on a kayak, which is a good thing cause I love kayaking at sea.

    Also, I counted the lifeboats on the cruiseship -- you should be fine. They have to make sure there are enough lifeboats for all the passengers these days. You can thank the sinking of the Titanic for that safety measure.

    Ouch indeed.

    I couldn't figure out why I couldn't find their scores at first, until I remembered there's another subdivision to NCAA Division 1, and that's where RI is. So now I know where to look. And with that...

    ...on to this week's College Football Roundup! Virginia Tech beat Wake Forest 36-17, USC beat Arizona State 31-26, Tennessee beat Kentucky 17-13, Rhode Island fell to William and Mary 55-19, Navy had a bye this week, and Air Force's game against New Mexico was postponed until the 23rd. On to next week!

    It snowed! It's snowing again actually. And I must call the news station. I knew snow was the forecast (I didn't believe it, but I knew it was possible). I did not storm the grocery store for milk and bread, yet somehow I have survived. Miraculous.

    I wasn't even thinking about that- and I get motion sickness in cars, airplanes and theme park rides. I keep motion sickness meds with me. Yep...I'm a terrible candidate for a cruise. Of course, I'm sure they have better medicine than what I get over the counter.

    Your pictures are great! I want to go back to Spain to visit Seville and Bilbao, but every time you travel I add more things to my bucket list I'm not complaining- I love the inspiration.
