Re: Subsonic Running Club

I'm just starting back with running after a 6 year hiatus. I feel like I'm starting from scratch. Anyone have any advice for this relative newbie??? :) Take it easy. Then, if it is possible from the US, have a look at this http://www.nhs.uk/livewell/c25k/Pages/couch-to-5k.aspx It is pretty good for...

Re: Camera Discussion

Real test for the camera will be on a trip when it is being fully utilized. That might be sooner rather than later. One more question I will bring up: Filters on lenses? I used to be a huge fan of putting a UV protection filter on to protect the outter glass from scratches, debris, dust, etc. Howev...

Re: Jumping the Pond

For all those missing pics, here is one of the previously mentioned School Uniform. http://img855.imageshack.us/img855/8489/uiniform1.jpg and a close up of the badge. It all looks much more shiny than it actually is. (and I mean that not in the Firefly shiny way :) Geek alert.) http://img856.imagesh...

Re: Jumping the Pond

I love all the photos! They look like professional work! It's incredible. You saw the camera lenses and tripod. I'm pretty far from a pro. But thanks anyway. I like the pics that get posted. Well most of them. They lose a lot when they get reduced for the posts. The full size originals are fantasti...

Re: Wishes fireworks "sounds"

All Star is just over 6 miles away and wishes can be very clear on some nights. Arabian Nights is 11 miles away so why not. Kissimmee airport is 12. From Experience Artillery can be heard firing at over 15 miles and the subsequent explosions can be heard up to 30 miles. How big are these fireworks :)

Re: Jumping the Pond

I love how you guys disagree (lovingly I'm sure) on whether the cost of the drink is expensive :lol: Yep :) We are on holiday. In Disneyworld. There isn't any arguing really. We will agree to disagree on the Butterbeer price issue. Now where is the next part of the report? I did the pics DAYS ago :...

Re: Jumping the Pond

It is quite sweet but it isn't super sweet. Less sweet than a Dr Pepper (for example) It isn't sickly either. It has been described as a cross between butterscotch and shortbread, I would also add some vanilla and nutmeg The foam topping is rich and creamy with popping bubbles. What more can I say.....

Re: Jumping the Pond

I haven't heard a bad review of the butterbeer. ;) No bad reviews possible. There is a fortune to be made selling that stuff and Universal are making it. One possible bad point. Price. It is way more expensive than real beer. Now when can we have it in cans from the grocery store? (Watch out CokaCo...

Re: Jumping the Pond

Thanks for the info. I doubt I will go to USO unless I move to Florida anyhow...I'm not all that interested in Harry Potter either, but the Kuka arm ride technology interests me. What movie is the pink cadillac from? Hard Rock Cafe is all about the music 8-) The pink Cadillac belonged to Elvis. You...

Re: Avenge the Monorail!!!

I love the monorails. As long as they keep running them I don't care how they decorate them. Just as long as the majority of them are in original colours I'm happy.

Although I have to say I prefer the Disneyland monorails in their cars paintwork. Sorry :wink:

Re: Jumping the Pond

Joe purchased a tie not griffindor but ravenscroft. I'm sure Dr Ravenscroft would be proud. However it's Ravenclaw. :) The ride is vomit inducing Amy. It isn't to rough, but it isn't smooth either. I would do the line again then skip the ride. The line was the highlight. Dare I say it possibly one ...

Re: 2013 WDW Marathon

For those that have done the WDW marathon before is it better to end a trip with it or start a trip with it? I know after Houston this year it took a number of days for my legs to feel normal again. I took on the Goofy Challenge in 2011. The biggest problem is the start time. You have to be at the ...
