For you in this issue:
  • In Your Own Words- INSPIRATION!
  • Manhattan Beach Party: Feb 16-18!!
  • Roman Empire Greek Island Cruise- September 25, 2007 (10 Days)!!
  • Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I write to you somewhere in the Caribbean Sea just after going through the Panama Canal. The Canal is about 50 miles long, and to get from one side to the other takes about 8 hours. I am aboard a Crystal Cruise Line ship, the Symphony. Crystal has been voted the # 1 cruise line for many years in a row, and they have lived up to their reputation!

    There are 16 terrific people in our group, and I think I can speak for all of them to say we feel this has been a most FUN and worthwhile cruise!

    As you have read in past Newsletters, we have 2 Senior Bachelor activities planned for 2007.

    The first will be from February 16-18 in Manhattan Beach.

    The other activity is the 10 day Roman Empire cruise. See below for more details or click here for more information.

    ITALY and "The Journey"

    I have received quite a few e-mails about my move to Italy as of March 1. I'll try to sum up the answers.

    1) I am not permanently moving to Italy. I plan to spend from March-November in this lovely part of the world, and then back in Manhattan Beach to see my family (and play volleyball!!) the rest of the months. I may do this for 1 year, or forever, depending on how things go.

    2) The Senior Bachelor Journey remains "on hold." I suspect that I will have a clear direction, one way or another, sometime before the end of this year.

    3) I will continue to act as a "social coordinator" (for lack of a better word) for our group for as long as "you" would like me to do so and I enjoy doing this.

    Please stay in touch. I have received so many inspirational letters of support like the one below from so many of you that are following along on this journey- this Journey is for ALL of us.

    Ciao for now,

    Richard Roe

    Some computers have a problem opening the photos from the Senior Bachelor Newsletter. If so, wait a few days and go to and click on the most recent Newsletter and you'll probably be able to see them there.

    In Your Own Words- INSPIRATION!

    From Judy:

    I have been sick with asthma related issues for 6 weeks and my computer crashed too. I just got finished kicking the machine and got it to work after a month. Thank you for the fun stories about your trips. I rarely travel anywhere beyond my city but love seeing all the pictures of people my age having fun in far away places. I would love to see Italy one day since I got hooked after reading John Grisham's book THE BROKER when I was a patient in the emergency room. The Italian references to food, places, etc made it wonderful. Take care and thanks again for this public "mission" to keep us "on board" for a journey that never ends.........Nurse Judy

    Manhattan Beach Party: Feb 16-18!!

    WOW!!! Due to overwhelming response to the idea of a Manhattan Beach Party in yesterday's newsletter, the party is on! The dates are February 16-18, 2007.

    Please call the Ayres Hotel for your reservation 800-675-3550 or (310) 536-0400. This is a fantastic price ($119 single or double). If you would like a roommate, e-mail me, at Be certain you mention the Senior Bachelor Group and request the special price.

    If you live in the area and will not need a room, make sure you e-mail me and let me know how many people will be with you so we can set up accordingly.

    There will be no expenses involved for the party itself. You will be responsible for any hotel expenses, food, drink, etc. We will provide the venue for the parties and meetings.

    February is a rather dull month. Let's make this a fantastic party!

    We want to have single men come as well but let's make it by your invitation only. So if you know a great single guy, ask him to come along!

    If you need help with travel arrangements, give Jay or Leah a call at Coastline Travel and ask for that special Senior Bachelor treatment. Call Coastline Travel at 1-800-448-2374.

    P.S. The "Crazy Hat Party" was so successful in Chicago, we may have a themed party one night. Disco, anyone??????????

    Roman Empire Greek Island Cruise- September 25, 2007 (10 Days)!!


    Many of you have signed up for the Empire Cruise, noted below, embarking from Rome on September 25, 2007. This is shaping up to be as big as the Alaska Cruises this past summer. Be sure to take a look for this FUN cruise!

Embarkation is September 25, 2007. I will plan really fun sightseeing activities a few days before and after the cruise for those who would like to experience The Eternal City in the early fall without lots of crowds.
