Cafe Car on the Orient Express

interioroftheorientexpress.jpg
Lounge car of the original Orient Express

Dogs just want to be involved.

Pals.

Goatwalking.

Sauron v. Gandalf.

Li'l Drink Caddy.

Show off.

The original, "real" Orient Express went out-of-business years ago, but there's a successor called the Venice-Simplon Orient Express, which apparently does sometimes make the full Calais-Istanbul run.

That'll set you back $55,000 per cabin. I think I read that's a special, once-or-twice a year run.

This guy and his thicc girlfriend booked the most expensive stateroom on the train.

Cost of the grand suite? $20,000. I think that's for the 28 hour (one-way?) trip to Venice.

Must be nice.

Must. Be. Nice.

It was recently someone else's number and a group of folks started sending me texts about a birthday party for one of the group and Zoom meetings at work. I did ask them to take me off their lists, but like always, it's taking awhile. It is making me feel really good about relocating and I just told them that.

When I was a kid my grandfather took us from Chicago to LA on the Santa Fe Super Chief. We had a sleeper car that was more like the one from Trading Places but it was still something I will never forget. The observation car at night going through the desert was like magic.

I would love to do the train through the Canadian Rockies. It looks fantastic.

No idea what it is like now but years ago had to take CP rail business class from Ottawa to Toronto and back in the same day. Sitting down after a full day of meetings, offered a warm wash cloth for your face, choice of drinks, and you can sit at a table with your traveling companions discussing the day's meetings, get up and stretch, whatever. That is the only way to travel.

91 Recycled phone numbers?

I have a story.

A widow acquaintance told me that someone got her deceased husband's phone number.

So, one day it rings and she is freaking out.

It was from the new owner of the number. Deceased husband was a something and had signs all over with his phone number.

The new owner of the number had to track down the family to notify her of what was going on.

A couple of years ago, I received a text with address and entry instructions for an Air BnB. Called back that I was not Charles, and had a nice conversation with his sister. The family was in town for the mother's funeral.

||At the beginning of the episode, McGarrett is having his palm read by a very pretty girl, who announces that he has a very long life line, and has at least another 30 years left to live. This episode was filmed in 1968, and this particular scene is slightly creepy, as Jack Lord passed away in 1998, exactly 30 years after this episode aired.|| [andy: aged 77 BTW]

Also, James Gregory b.1911 is in it who besides being Barney Miller's Inspector Luger was in TOS Star Trek as a psych ward doctor in "Dagger of the Mind"; and Keye Luke b. 1904, Master Po from Kung Fu is also in it, who was in a TOS episode "Whom Gods Destroy" [LORD Garth!] where he's a doctor on the psych planet.

Had something similar happen a while back. Wasn't a new phone number, but one day, we suddenly started getting calls to our landline inquiring about apartment rentals. Received quite a few, from different people.

Discovered that a new apartment complex that was being built (and about to open) had a big sign saying they were now taking leases, and to call. Only it was our phone number on the sign.

I forget how we did it, but we eventually managed to find the number of the management, and left them a message letting them know. The calls dried up shortly thereafter.

One of the funnier Mike Royko columns was when ATT tangled with him. His local Chicago number was what you got if you left off the new fangled 1-800 prefix for ATT customer assistance. Royko called up ATT multiple times to get them to switch their number due to the calls flooding in. They told him to get stuffed. Anyhoo, Royko began to terrorize people calling into his number expecting ATT service. He would tell them outrageous things and I remember one person told him he could not do that--Royko replied, Hey, We are ATT and we can do anything we want. He used ATT as the butt for several of his columns making them a laughingstock in Chi Town.

Long story, Mike Royko 1 ATT 0--ATT changed the number of their customer assistance. May Royko rest in piece as an honest newspaperman.

173 looks lke you can take Amtrak from NY to LA. 78 hours.

Give or take 5-10. Amtrak used to be amazing, the seats were like recliners, the stewards were great. The food was overpriced and not great, but it was overall a terrific, friendly experience with wonderful scenery.

But they went to smaller cars with smaller, lighter seats that are not NEARLY as comfortable (more like airplane seats) and it is just not the same experience at all. It takes longer, costs more because of food cost, and is not more comfortable than flying. I cannot recommend the train any more.

259 I used to stay south of Florence on a small farm and took the train into the city

that train was nasty, like 3rd world nasty
Posted by: REDACTED at August 02, 2022 09:14 PM (us2H3)

On one of the trips from London to Paris on the train, I was diverted to Germany. The train to Koln from Paris was ok, not quite as nice as Eurostar but good enough. The rest of the trip to Munchengladbach was on commuter trains and was a dump site even in Europe.

The other issue was that it was virtually impossible to design a way to get back to London from there without going through London or spending hours in a station in Brussles. Ended up getting a drive to an old NATO airfield out in the middle of nowhere and getting a flight to a suburban airfield outside London to get the train into the city in the wee hours.

Even where everyone says the trains work, the trains don't really work.

I'm confused about memes I've seen comparing Trump's coof to Biden's coof. They were saying Trump was way sicker and couldn't breathe, but I seem to recall that he was out of the public eye for only a day or two. No indication that he had a dangerously rough time, only that they took precautions. Plus, Trump caught it during one of the more dangerous variants, so it wasn't his political party or vax status or physical condition that made him sicker.

I thought of that one but wasn't sure I was not mixing it up with some other drug I had read about somewhere.

339 Trump went on oxygen for a while. But I don't think it got worse than that. tbh, I thought he would be in much bigger trouble given his weight and age. But he seems to have the constitution of an ox.

347 I have had the phone number thing happen with email. I got a receipt emailed to me about a painting that was to be delivered. I replied they got the wrong person. The gallery said they forgot a letter in the address and thanked me for letting them know. For years I will randomly get an email for this other lady and I always forward them to her. Things like wedding invites, closing documents for property, receipts, insurance documents, etc. This has been going on for about 12 years. The other person is from NYC.

355 Looks like my polling citations got Kansas wrong, turn out was poor in rural counties and "no" is going to win.

The Dixon polling was good and looks like Grietens was over estimated, although they were right that Schmidt would win.

I'll be looking to see what the final margins were, since that is where the real value of a credible poll comes.

Hey, I found on AZcentral you are correct they ran out of ballots due to heavy turnout and you failed to note that Pinal county has new ballots delivered and if you're in line by 7pm, you get to vote.

Nothing about any statements by Kari Lake though you must have really weird eyes.

Hope so. But why did they run out of ballots in the first place? Don't they know how many voters they have in the county?

It always seems to be the same counties in the same states that have issues.

I left the GOP; but, as an independent in AZ I can choose in which primary to vote.
My guess is that many more people did the same and we all chose to vote the GOP ticket this time, hence not enough GOP ballots.
