              As another thought regarding crew going ashore as we too have seen the signs for crew shore leave. What about the staff who act as escorts not guides as such but are there as your link with the ship invade anything happens. I presume they get extra pay for this? and I expect its for those who have got a better command of the language so won't be for everyone and I don't mean to sound demean outing in that. We always speak to the crew whether its the toilet cleaner or captain and they all seem pretty happy with their lot albeit a long time away from their families but hey who in the UK gives their staff two months off in one hit. Our last table waiter was going home to work on his uncles farm and then back to sea again with the aim to buy his own farm when he had sufficient funds. He gave us great joy every mealtime and if he was truly unhappy with his lot his demeanour never showed it.

                  Quite an unusual interjection for a newcomer. Have you managed to read all of my posts and threads that yopu are able to say that I argue with all in sundry?

                  Could this possible be the "Pillocks Week" that we have so long awaited? .....Neil

                  Glad you liked the interjection. Please be more careful with your grammar and spelling.


                  As Chief Pillock, I bow to your superior knowledge on the subject.

                  What a beautiful day it is today, I think the dogs might get a walk soon, hope you are having a good day too.

                      When we owned and ran pubs we made a practice of making sure that every customer was the best person we had seen that day and we were always sorry to see them go. Not only did that go down well with customers but it kept us in a cheerful frame of mind so we benefited too.

                      I think there is a similar thing going on with a lot of ships and the staff. After all they would find it difficult to quit so making the best of it must be the way to go. I am always mentioning the management on here because that has a huge amount to do with the staff's contentment and demeanour. Where the management is poor it rebounds right through the whole ship and it is obvious from day 1.

                      I am also sure that, done with a meaningful manner, greeting and conversing with the guys and gals must work well in both directions so your point about this is well made. ....Neil
