On September 2,1996, my Father completed cash payment for our Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow built in 1927 on George Hornbeck’s parcel subdivision owned by Mrs. Ahrens at 504 S. Westmore-Meyers Road related to Stebens Carpenter Handyman , adjoining the driveway and our backyard separated by a wooden picket fence.  I witnessed the full cash payment with my Father at the First State Bank of Maple Park in Kane County, Illinois USA.  Since my Father, I, and Nathan were all working full-time in 1996 as Lombard resident homeowners and taxpayers, life in the Lilac Village was costing us a lot more money, work, and suburban DuPage County expenses, as well as Illinois State fees, and U.S. federal taxes to us than were credited to other Lombard families in District 5, York Township in DuPage County, Illinois USA. In 1996, Mr. Roberto Hung Juris Doctor spent a lot of money in cash to pay Lombard real estate property taxes, mortgage, and DuPage County in York Township, Illinois.
I also spent a lot of cash in Lombard, purchasing electronics, computer equipment, and business professional memberships and associations for employment purposes. I was also travelling in the USA, Canada, France, and Germany. Since I was working the entire day, I would come back to the Lombard home late at night.
I had to travel to Berlin, Germany for the Languages and The Media Conference sponsored by the Federation of International Translators (FIT) during November 1996.
From O’Hare Airport (ORD), the Trans-Atlantic Flight was scheduled to leave at 8:00 p.m. Nathan dropped me off at the O’Hare International Terminal and did not wait for me to board the American Airlines flight to Heathrow Airport in London, England, in the United Kingdom.
When I got to the AA Terminal around 7:00 p.m., the intercom announced that due to engine failure in one of the propeller wings, the Trans-Atlantic flight to Heathrow Airport in London would be delayed and arrival time into Berlin would also be affected the next day. American Airlines was re-scheduling all international flight connections at Heathrow London and Berlin Germany.
The AA new engine overhaul took four (4) hours to be installed by Midnight. So, I had to wait at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago in order to make the Trans-Atlantic flight to Heathrow Airport in London UK before I could get to the InterContinental Hotel in Berlin, Germany.
All the passengers were edgy, irritated, and upset over AA faulty engine wing propeller for this Trans-Atlantic Flight, especially when AA promised a “complete new engine overhaul by Midnight”.
I wondered why at the last minute, before departure, AA had a faulty engine on a wing propeller for a Trans-Atlantic flight to Heathrow London. The thoughts and memories of airplanes failing in mid-flight across the Atlantic reminded me of the perils in travelling overseas.
Four (4) hours afterwards, I was also wondering if the new engine overhaul for the wing propeller would be completed successfully. The AA stewardess called all the passengers to board exactly by 12:00 a.m. At Midnight, I was on my way to Heathrow London with breakfast ready for my overseas flight to Europe.
With all the delays and excitement, I did not sleep at all during the whole experience. Aboard the Trans-Atlantic flight to Heathrow London, the AA Captain announced that due to the 4-hour delay, all itineraries to European cities had been changed to adjust connecting flight at Heathrow Airport in London, England UK. I had to get through the Customs Gatekeeper at Heathrow International Airport in London before I could catch my connecting British Airways flight to Berlin, Germany. Fortunately, I never get lost at European international airports, so after Customs at Heathrow London, I found the British Airways terminal for a cross-flight to Berlin, Germany. By Noon, I was aboard British Airways without my AA ORD luggage…which had not made the connecting flight with me. A British lunch was served to calm my Trans-Atlantic flight jitters, jetlag, and European-travel excitement. Overall, I made my way through the Trans-Atlantic flight to Heathrow London without any problems, in spite of the AA new engine overhaul for the wing propeller and the 4-hour delay to make the British Airways flight connection to Berlin, Germany. The only thing was that my AA luggage did not have the same luck in transit at Heathrow International Airport in London.

The month of December is always full of surprises, amazing holiday miracles, and wonderful thoughts from family, friends and associates…wherever they are or may be. Early in December 2011, I received a colorful and memorable Happy Birthday! Gift Card from Tampa, Florida…all the way to the Village of Lombard, where I live in Du Page County, Illinois. When I opened the envelope, I read “Happy Birthday!” from Carnival. Wow! Someone thoughtful remembered my Anniversary Birthday in December 2011, and forwarded their best wishes with a birthday celebration aboard a Carnival ship for an 8-day /7-Night Cruise vacation for 2 with an outside cabin, leaving from any major port in the U.S.A—approximate value is $1299 and No Purchase Necessary. What A Big Surprise for my birthday! It included a Bonus Gift for Two Round-trip Airfares leaving from or going to any major airport in the continental U.S.A.—this offer is not redeemable for cash. Right in the middle of the winter Christmas holidays, I just could not get away…to Carnival. Especially when Travel over major holidays is not permitted and some restrictions apply.

So, the New Year 2012 Jubilee celebrations arrived in January with the New Chinese Year of the Dragon in tow to celebrate all the anniversaries that come up throughout this year. I have not forgotten about Carnival Cruise in the middle of the Midwest snowstorms we are having in Illinois. Carnival Cruise offers a wide selection of travel options with Imagination to visit Miami, Key West in Florida and Cozumel, Mexico in the Caribbean. Or, I must travel Destiny to Ocho Rios in Jamaica, then go along to Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands. If I have enough time and energy, Valor can take me to Cozumel, Mexico, Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands. To sail in Glory, there are also ports to see in Nassau for the Bahamas, St. Thomas USVI, San Juan Puerto Rico, and Grand Turk, which includes La Romana in the Dominican Republic travelling the eastern Caribbean. If I take Liberty, there are options to see Cozumel, Mexico, Belize, Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan, Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands. Otherwise, Carnival Glory can take me to Boston Massachusetts or New York, to St. John New Brunswick, Halifax, NS, Sydney, NS, Canada, and return via Portland Maine back to port in Boston Massachusetts. The whole idea for a Carnival Cruise Anniversary is very exciting during 2012.

I am still wondering, “Where is the Carnival Cruise to Cuba, the Pearl of the Antilles and the center of the Caribbean as a destination port along Carnival Cruise itineraries?” If Carnival Cruises travel with Imagination, Destiny, Valor, Liberty, and Glory as far east as the coasts of Cozumel, Belize, Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan, Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands and makes port in Ocho Rios Jamaica; then Carnival Cruise can make port in Santiago de Cuba, in the island of Cuba, some day! “Why is not Carnival Cruise making port in Santiago de Cuba or La Habana, Cuba?”
