In the blog items above we will keep you posted via a daily log of our cruising experiences throughout January & February. The first ship is Royal Caribbean's Serenade of the Sea (see photo)... capacity is about 2,500 people, 962 feet long, 1050 cabins, 25 knot cruising speed and 858 crew. It was built in August, 2003. Donna and I look forward to your reactions or questions and comments as we travel. And say 'Hi' to our traveling companions, Aimee and Craig. Click here for a Caribbean slideshow.

Focus - focus - focus. That's the watchword around here for 2005. We'll be aiming to focus on growth by serving the business community, where we have a proven service model, at a fair price.

So, we aim to FOCUS on business communications, where we have over 30 years of expertise in communications strategy, and where the needs of the enterprise are crystal clear.

To which he replied, "Just how unclimbable is it?" He says: "The summit is nothing more than a place to see where you can go next."
