Driving the car to the ship late New Year's Eve, having complimentary champagne with the crew on upper deck and watching fireworks. Late snack and then to the luxurious cabin to bed.

Ship sails 4AM, New Year's Day you wake up in the middle of the beautiful Baltic Sea. Whole day nothing to do, just relax. This ship is no passenger ferry so there's no "cruise program", just a small bar and breakfast / dining area plus sauna & gym. Luckily they have free satellite WiFi! Second night on sea, following morning 8AM ship arrives in Helsinki, the capital of Finland. A week or so with my family, then the same two day trip back home.

Different New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, but we love it. A nice New Year's tradition we both miss, this year was now second time we could not make this trip because we can no longer leave my elderly mother-in-law alone for so long period. Now it's just a couple of days, flying in and out.

Thanks so much for sharing. Wow...

10+ year old HDD
My mom's 10+ year old computer died the other day. The light indicator for the PSU lights up but the computer doesn't do anything. When I took a look inside I saw the processor fan was just caked with gunk, dust, etc. It looked like somebody threw mud at it. Anyways, she has this stuff on her...
