Interesting...just as I posted, the gasbuddy server rolled over the date to show 12:00am, but my computer shows 11:58pm.

I'll have to check the computer's time with the atomic clock site...but I'm sure that it automatically checks every now and then.

Gas Cat: I post prices with either a Ipad, Android tablet and phone, or via PC. It seems that bonus points will be given (whenever they're offered) regardless of which device you use.

I'm not sure just what the reasons are this time around for the extra points...but I'll take them!

Anyway, the Canucks jumped all over the New Jersey Devils winning the game 2-0. There was a very beautiful tribute for Pat Quinn, who passed away a couple of days ago.

Having heard post game remarks from the players, it seems that the tribute gave them extra energy to which the Devils never had a response for.

Alaric76: Corey was a backup for Luongo when the both of them were Canucks. Corey was being groomed to eventually replace Luongo but due to the craziness that went on last season with the Canuck organization, Corey was traded away and of course, Luongo got his wish to be traded at the end of the season.

That left the Canucks with back up goalie of the future, Eddie Lack who's still in learning mode.

Anyway, tonight's game was Corey's first time back in Vancouver and he got a nice reception as what happened to him was beyond his control and was unfortunate.

Gas Cat: That's too bad about the lobster, that's the grand meal that everyone looks forward to...unless you're allergic to seafood.I'll keep your assessment in mind the next time we book a cruise...don't know when that's happening as we're currently in saving mode for future trips.

Well, it's now Wednesday, and I've still been receiving 2000 points per five price posts. Must be an all week thing...

We found the food to be below the level of the other cruise lines. The lobster tails were so small that I have had shrimp that we're larger. Actually pasted them up when I saw the size and heard the complaints from others. These lobsters needed to grown and not be plucked from the sea.

Alaric76: The New Jersey Devils are here in town with a game scheduled for Tuesday. Haven't been following Corey Schneider of much, but it'll be good to see him again.

Gas Cat: How do you find the Royal Caribbean line? How's the food, the amenities?

So far, I've cruised with Princess and Holland America. I think that the food is definitely much more varied and interesting on Holland America, although their ships are generally smaller.

The 2,000 points for gas reporting seem to be sporadic at best...at least to me.

I guess the site is trying to get as many gasbuddies as possible to be eligible to win a gas card.

Gas Cat: All the cruise ships migrate just like our Canada Geese, they head south by this time of year and will be back north again by Spring time.

One way of looking at it- if you are a very faithful gas price poster, it's a boon... if you miss a day, then it's twice as costly. You miss out on 2000 points.

I can't figure out when they do it. Seems a little random. Main theme- seems to happen on weekends.
