TA refugees check in here! | Debbie's Caribbean Resort Reviews Forums

Glad to see you, Jimbo. Pretty quiet here compared to Trip Advisor, but at least you have a better chance of your post surviving.

If the deleted posts issue continues, there may be a lot more TA members show up here even if it is quieter. Maybe they need a section like this one.

Jimbo, there actually is an off-topic forum on TA. But as far as I can see, it is rubbish. This off-topic section is actually pretty good.

Thanks for the link. Now I know why I never visited it before. Not my cup of tea, unless I want to chat with someone about a good cup of tea, lol. Not.

A Ha!! So this is where you guys are hiding!
Well, some of us, some of the time. Welcome!

Sorry for the late reply Spunky but yes I am dug out, 2 days in a row. Thank God for a great snowblower. Now it is raining and a pile of ice and slush.

The rain has cleaned off the dirt road I live on. Warm yesterday, so the ice is off it too. Snow tonight and tomorrow but only 2 to 5cm each day.

I had no idea that there was a ‘dust up’ on TA. I post here and on TA but sometimes I take a break from forums and the internet in general. I would love to see this forum return to it’s former glory. When I joined ( in 02 although my profile says 04), this was ‘the’ forum to find answers.

Debbie’s was my introduction to internet forums. I reluctantly joined Trip Advisor after so many abandoned this forum, and I would also love to see it return to the good old days of activity. Maybe someday.

Although I followed Debbie’s before I even knew about Trip Advisor, but for some reason, it was TA that I joined first. I had a specific question at the time, and I think Debbie’s was already slowing down then. So I guess I thought I would be more likely to get an answer on TA. It seemed that Debbie’s was probably a better place to chat about travel, but as I was already a member of TA, it took me a while to get around to joining Debbie’s.

Is there anyone here that remembers the 1st time a bunch of us from Debbie’s got together at the Bohemian Havana in TO (I think it’s gone now) for a night of great food and Cuba vacation talk? It was such a fun night. Getting to meet the people you talk to online who share the interest of Cuba travel was priceless.

I didn’t go to it, but I remember the chatter on here about it at the time. Sorry I missed out!
I used to go to those nights – I met Steve YYZ, Charmaniac, Canuks and hubby and their friend Marina, Wendy (New2Cuba), Bellagio, Rainbow and many others whose named have slipped my aging mind.Bellagio was visiting from England and some wag had pinned a note to his shirt: "My name is Ken and if I am lost please send me to the Chelsea". It was hysterical. I would meet Rainbow with my car full of stuff for Dubois and he’d help me empty the car. You know, there is nothing stopping us from organizing another one. Who would be interested in meeting up? And does anyone know of a good Cuban restaurant?

I think the couple that ran the restaurant split up and that is why it closed.

me too.We would love another fun night…. need to find a full moon…..not kdding as I say that for most …and not by planning it that way….ended up on full moons.

Was not able to make the 2 verylate in the season Dubois packs, so I feel like I am missing an infusion of these folks.

I told my kids I was going to a bar in Toronto to meet people I met on the internet. They were not pleased.It was good to see the faces I had ‘talked’ to previously. Debbie herself showed up for one and Rainbow was going to introduce himself as Gordon…..

When is the next one Barb? I’m in!
