15.03.2015 - 15.03.2015
Didn't get to send yesterday's blog because I hadn't finished it and the satellite link was described as unreliable. After a lovely sunrise I joined Jenny for breakfast and then spent two hours writing up yesterday's story. Next item on my agenda was the lecture by Robert Schirn, today's topic being the "Kidnapping of Patty Hearst". I'll have to watch the replay on TV as I lasted all of 15 minutes before nodding off. I figured that was an indication that I was in need of some sleep.
A quick lunch and back to the cabin and I flaked out until about 16:15. Felt a lot fresher after that. Got up to dress for the Captain's Cocktail Party and after that to diner with Don and Mary. Both off them look better than they have for some days. Jenny too appears to be responding to her medications.
After diner we went off to the Theatre so witness the astounding ability of Wayne Hoffman. He was billed as a Mentalist and Illusionist and I've no idea how he managed to perform his feats. His ability to 'read minds' amazed us all. At one stage he asked us all to think of a name or number and focus on that. He then asked if there was anyone with certain initials. One person indicated and was passed a microphone. He questioned the person and determined they were thinking of a dog and when he asked if the dog's name was some strange name the selected person just exclaimed "Shit, you're right !!" He did this not once but three or four times. There were other amazing demonstrations and he easily filled in the 45 minutes. Awesome !!
Back in the cabin we worked out the amounts for each of the crew that have provided us with excellent personal service, stuffed the money in envelopes and got them ready to distribute over the next two days. Some of them finish their contact in Puerto Vallarta.
We continue to experience communications difficulties not only on the Internet link but the Satellite TV as well. We are sailing in a NorthWesterly direction off the coast of Mexico with two more sea days before our next port.

Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
