    Our DS got lucky and landed a 45 day relief on a RoRo ship which is turning into many more than 45 days. He joined MMP in July and his shipping card was about 2 months old. While waiting on a sailing job he was going into the union hall and getting Night Mate jobs, about 1 to 2 a week which is...

    A favorite of ours is Harbor Deli, 306 Main Street, Port Washington. 516-883-9597 It's a short drive from KP and the selection of deli sandwiches and salads is extensive. The board displays 64 Harbor Creations and they use Boars Head meats. They also deliver but I don't...

    Calling card

    My Captain husband says DON'T buy a calling card in the US. They can be purchased very cheap in whatever country they visit. Plus between email, SKYPE, and (if the Captain is nice enough :biggrin:) sometimes cadets are allowed a call from the ship. My husband allows his cadets a 5 min. call as a...

    last minute planner

    I bought the weekend badge but will be unable to attend. Is it possible to transfer the badge to someone else? If so I would be willing. I am so sad that I cannot make it as this is 1/C year and I have been every year. It is a weekend of great pride. Enjoy it everyone!

    Shameless Plug....

    Thank you for posting that! My DS is on that boat. The Offshore Sailing team is his reason for living. He has enjoyed it so much and has willingly given up most of his summers to the waterfront. If he had his choice he would never climb the "hill" and always be out on the water. :smile:

    Special hotel rates for indoc & parents' weekend

    The BBQ is pretty informal and I'm sure your son would be welcomed. I would suggest to email the waterfront staff ahead of time so they can get an idea for food amounts. It is a nice way to meet the coaches and be in a more relaxed atmosphere as the next day (Indoc) is pretty intense. :thumb:

    Christmas Gifts

    Some practical gift ideas are good steel-toed boots, a knife and flashlight (our DS likes Pelican brand with 3 W power). The knife should be good quality, Buck for example. Same for the boots. All are necessary for Deck, I'm sure Engine has similar needs. :smile:

    Excited for November Break - BUT Let the Dark Ages Begin

    Ditto to Jamzmom. I have sent a care package every week since plebe year and limit my input to "I sure love those stars you are earning". That's the extent of my involvement in his education. He can and will do it. I can and will deal with the separation. He is my youngest and boy it's been...
