I have WDW MGC. But everybody thinks it means window magic and figures we own a replacement window company. Until we get to Florida, then suddenly everybody "get's it."

I rented it, instead of buying, and I'm glad I did. It is definitely aimed at the younger crowd. It was fun for several hours of play, but after that it was too repetitive and I was ready to send it back.

I've been a member of Pogo forever and love it. Can't wait for Wednesday's!! (Which is badge day for those not familiar to Pogo and it's foibles.) My screen name is Ritchie56 over there too.

We have had Netflix for several years and love it. As to the new releases, I have a RSS Feed set up that updates every Sunday or Monday with all the new releases for the week. A quick scan of that list once a week and I am always sure I've caught everything I'm interested in as it is released.

And if you don't use every single snack or meal on the plan, you've missed the break even point. One snack credit unused and you may as well have paid cash. Seems like an awfully thin margin to me to make it worth the risk.

I'm in Inventory Control. Which means I count stuff -- every day! And then go shoot the buyers for buying too much!

That was very nice! We are planning our first trip to Disneyland and trying to decide on our "must-do's". I think I just moved this one up on the list! Thanks!

I can see this appealing to those that want to try out, but I'm not so sure about attracting an audience to listen to them. Why would I want to take an hour of my limited and expensive park time to listen to probably not-so-hot singers?

Boy, this one is really dependent on where you are in your life cycle. I have three kids, a spouse, and two sets of parents to buy for, so our budget is higher than what a young person just buying for his spouse/girlfriend would be. I figure I spend about a thousand on everybody combined. If I added...

My last trip was July 1968. I was 11, and don't remember it very well, though I do remember my mother wishing we could eat in the Blue Bayou restaurant. I remember before we did that trip always wishing on stars and wishbones that I could someday go to Disneyland -- and when it happened, it was like...

Just so you know you aren't alone, I have been known to wear one occasionally. Not often, but if the weather is bad, or I have on a white t shirt...

More often I'm known to cover the feet with something. I hate slogging around in wet tennis shoes.

I've been thinking about this one since retirement is only two years away. I think I'd like to work in merchandising. My husband wants to be a security guard. Not sure why--searching through peoples stuff doesn't seem like my idea of fun.... Maybe it's the fancy uniform.

Okay, now I see the announcement on Deb's site, but the wording is a bit different. Her site says: The new policy applies to all guest rooms, patios and balconies and designates outdoor smoking areas at all resorts affected by the change. Which makes more sense--now they have designated outdoor spot...
