re: Alaskan cruise with Princess - Excursion advice - nctiger71 on 3/20/19 at 6:22 pm
We did that same route in Aug ‘17. I posted a review and will find a link to it. But the quick answer: Skagway - do the train. We did the short route but apparently there is a longer one that gets good reviews. Juneau - whale watch trip & salmon bake. Ketchikan- do not go to the park to see ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Road trip - hotel booking - nctiger71 on 3/19/19 at 11:28 am
There is a Hampton Inn just off the interstate in Arkaldphia. It is an hour south of LR. We stayed there once. A typical HI; lowest cost room on their web site is ~ $80 or 20,000 points. We book in advance but it may be while driving and only a few hours from the hotel. I have had zero succe...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: rule of thumb for retirement savings - nctiger71 on 3/15/19 at 9:41 am
That seems high unless you want to retire earlier than most; say before age 62. A good financial advisor can help you figure out what to do now based on your short & long term objectives....

re: Maine bays/harbors to stay at - nctiger71 on 3/15/19 at 7:51 am
I've only been once. We stayed in Bar Harbor 4 nights and Camden one. They are both tourist stops, don't mean that in a negative way. They have a lot of shops, restaurants, and things to do, especially BH with ANP nearby. We enjoyed both. We talked to some folks at BH and they were staying in...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Giving a Presentation at Work Tomorrow - nctiger71 on 3/14/19 at 11:29 pm
Something I would do to help w/ nerves is stand at the spot from where you will speak prior to the presentation - before the meeting starts or during a break - to get a feel for the situation; just people are not in their seats looking at you. For some reason I would be less nervous when the room i...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Getting older and constantly being tired - nctiger71 on 3/11/19 at 8:52 pm
You go to sleep at 2:00 am. What time do you have to be at work? Sorry: did not see you had answered; 10:30. Your symptoms sound a lot like sleep apnea. Once I got a CPAP machine my mid afternoon tiredness pretty much went away. You do not have to be old & fat to have SA....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: What''s the poorest you've been? - nctiger71 on 3/10/19 at 2:42 pm
Grew up lower middle class and I guess some would consider us poor but not poverty level. We had relatives that were worse off - they were share cropper poor - so our situation didn’t seem very bad. Didn’t have much money after college and the wife and I got into a huge fight over $.26 once. Bu...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Is it weird for Adults to like Disneyworld more than kids? - nctiger71 on 3/9/19 at 7:51 pm

That’s the day we had the most fun. I’ve been wanting to go back w/o everybody else ever since....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Microsoft Excel Question.. What formula do I need? - nctiger71 on 3/8/19 at 3:47 pm
Vlookup might do it. Look that up in help and it should tell you the correct argument structure. Not sure but you may have to switch columns as vlookup only looks right. [quote]VLOOKUP is an Excel function to lookup and retrieve data from a specific column in table. VLOOKUP supports approximate...
