You know, I had to really look closely at that. I think I need new glasses.



Oh, that's just BAAAD....a milestone with Kiki's wooden monkey.

Only reaching 70 here today... by this weekend, it will be in the 80's. I'm taking a much needed vacation day on Thursday to go to the beach BY MYSELF. I never get to go without the kids (love 'em dearly, but I need to sit on the beach and do NOTHING for a few hours), so I actually looked at the 10-day forecast and picked what looked like the best weekday (weather-wise and schedule-wise).

Saturday should be beautiful... I have a black-tie charity ball that night, so I need to be TAN by then..


Karen, that sounds absolutely mah-velous! Enjoy your beach day. Relax, relax, relax! :thumbsup2



YAY!! A TOP with Kiki Karen, the Florida :sunny: , & relaxing on the beach! :woohoo:

Stacey,

Do y'all do wrought iron curtain rods? I found what I want at Penney's but it's not thick enough or long enough. They are black w/ a hint of gold & have fleur de lis finnials (sp?). I'm sure it would be waaayyy to expensive to have them shipped to me though. Any ideas of where I could look for something mass produced? I've yet to finish decorating my dining room that we painted before my surgery!!! My mom is going to bring me some black & white photos that my brother took of various fences, statues, etc. around New Orleans. I can't wait to see them.

New Orleans is the BEST place for admiring that kind of work!!

Yes, we do the curtain rods....I actually have some in my bedroom. Took me years to get them....
The hardest part would be getting the color that you like...the "hint of gold"...antiquing.....but it can be done. And they would be expensive to ship. It doesn't sound like you'll be able to find what you need (size-wise) mass-produced, but check your phone book for Ornamental Iron. There has to be someone there that custom makes them. Warning: You're looking at a minimum of $200 a rod.

A hint for making the ones at Penney's work for you.....buy extra brackets and space them along the length of the rod for extra support with heavy curtains.

Thanks Stacey! I HATE it when you know exactly what you want but don't know where to find it. That's usually my problem with decorating. I have something in my mind then wind up having to settle. When I first bought my table & chairs, I hated that the seats came with black ultrasuede fabric but now I know (in my mind) how to pull it all off ... black antiqued wrought iron curtain rods, black & white prints, etc. .. gold sheer valences.

I don't think we ever have "officially" talked about it.

Jay and I own a welding and ornamental iron shop. He does the hard labor, I do the books. He does everything with steel from huge I-Beams during construction phase, to blacksmithing and ornamental stuff like gates, railings, tables, fireplace screens.....anything you could think of that could be made of steel/wrought iron.
And we own a few rental properties that I manage. Some are smaller buildings that we rent to local contractors and one is to a local cable company, two are to Nextel and T-Mobile.



A T.O.P. with Samantha! :cool1:

We're lucky enough to rent to a woodworker, and a close friend does etched glass. We've partnered with them and made some awesome steel tables with either wood or glass tops. There's good money to be made doing that.

I don't have a steel coffee table, though. "Grace" would probably stub her toe, or ram her shin into it and hurl it out the back door!

I've been really disappointed in our hand-held TV. It doesn't get but one station, no matter where we're at...even in Phoenix, near the towers. Granted, it wasn't an expensive one..it's a Casio.

I also seem to have longer battery life with the lap top than I do with any of our portable DVD players.

Kevin - HD has the Disney paint franchise, except they are all out of lime green paint chips :thumbsup2 Too bad the doors are not metallic stickers :rotfl2: By the way - Stitch would be way cool.....

All this talk about withdrawal symphony for WDW made me book reservations for July and October....It is so nice to live in Fla.

If wishing would make it so, then perhaps....but the last time we all chimed in on this topic, it seemed doubtful, unlikely, not a chance, no way, won't happen.....so as to giving DH hope - ummm...nope.

They are both doing well this session. Emily is now in Eel & Ashley is in Pike II. I really like the teacher that Ashley has now. This session ends on Wed. They'll start up again with Sat. classes at the end of April and will go through the end of May... of course they'll miss the last class 'cause we'll be CRUISING!!!

Must research - back in a bit.If the release date is the 26th then they will (or should) show it on the ship. When Brother Bear was released it was the disembarktion day of our cruise, they had a special Prem-Ear at midnight on the last night of hte cruise..

See, that was the information I was going on too....that it was being released on the 26th. But sounds like maybe that's not the REAL release date in all theaters. I think it's probably more likely we won't see it if our cruise isn't during it's official release.

Sorry to jump in, but we've had Tivo for several years (actually have 2) and you can ask it to record anything with a specific star or a topic you like. A few years ago before we went to Alaska, I had it taping anything with Alaska in it. We got travel items I was looking for in addition to movie that mentioned Alaska. Let me know if you need assistance and I will look up specifically how.

My brother just came back from a RCL cruise and he went to Cozumel and said that the immediate town was fine. The dock was still all chewed up and they had to tender. I don't think he went on any excursions so I would guess that he didn't venture too far from the docks. Hope that helps.

I did check HBO's Big Love schedule page (http://www.hbo.com/apps/schedule/ScheduleServlet?CHANNEL=All+Channels&ACTION_SEARCH=SEARCH&KEY=TITLE&VALUE=big+love), and it didn't look like they were showing anything but this week's episode between now and the end of the month.

What do you mean your "TIVO got this for you"? Can you program it to tape certain things, like all Disney shows? Please explain.

That is exactly true. I have programmed my TiVo with a wishlist for "DISNEY." Anything coming up in the next 2 weeks with DISNEY in the title or description is identified. Then I choose what I want to record. I could let my TiVo do it all for me, but then I would wind up with about a dozen episodes of "As Told By Ginger" and I don't want that! It helps give a necessary Disney fix when you are not at the parks.

My two-year old daughter even knows how to find Disney shows on the TiVo and in the entertainment center. All night long tonight she kept pointing to the TV asking for "Mickey Mouse?" We began training her early in the ways of Disney!

If you want to upload them to the photo gallery, then you don't need to size them at all. Just log on, click on the photo gallery (at the top) and then select "upload photos" (at the top right)

No! Here is the accompanying write up that went with the posting. Interesting! I'm not a believer in feeding wild creatures and this is why.....

"And finally, speaking of sharks, if you think you're having a run of bad luck, pity the
poor photog who couldn't take this shot. Yes, that's really a Tiger Shark. And yes,
that's really a fully-equipped (expensive) housed SLR system with strobes dangling out
of his mouth. The picture comes from Paul Krupela of Pasadena (he's already won an
Honorable Mention in the Beneath the Sea Photo Contest) and it seems that Paul was
with a group shooting Tigers in the Bahamas. As Harry tells it, " . . . the shark (Nacho)
approached the divemaster, who was shaking a crate of fish to attract them . . Nacho
got the lid to the crate and was swimming around with it, when he apparently realized
it was not a fish. His whole temperament changed quickly and he became very
aggressive . . . He swam over and circled and bumped a photographer (Andy Salmon)
a few times, then swam back to the divemaster and went straight for the camera. He
grabbed it and took off, finally dropping it several hundred yards away (out of sight).
Jim Abernathy (divemaster) swam after Nacho and finally retrieved the camera . . .
There were major scratches on the dome port, and Nacho actually snapped a few
shots of the sand. Paul was in the perfect location as Nacho swam away with the
camera . . ."

They had just returned from a family cruise on "another line". The private island was not very impressive but they did go snorkeling. He grew up here - in the water - and like losts of us, grew up, grew away and grew out of the sport. She had never tried and was not keen on the rental equipment. the mask kept slipping and the snorkel did not fit her mouth. It was clean and not scratched, but just did not fit.

Message to those of you who are still undecided - With 2 stops at Castaway Cay, if you can, an investment in a mask that fits is an idea to consider....I expect you could rent the fins from Disney (might need to pay full price???)

We have snorkeling with the manatees on our calendar for next January and I can see that Sam has a Keys trip planned for next summer. (No time off until then for her hubby - due to work related staffing woes). She thinks snorkeling with her own mask, and in fresh water, may well be more enjoyable....

Another reason to "blame Kevin or Jim" somehow....it has to be their doing...more people diving.....must remember to call dive boat for this weekend. I was suposed to fly on Monday, but with Tampa on Monday and Vero on Tuesday --- it will be driving for me.

And I called T/A (she who cannot be named) to let her know not to book a spot on the Transatlantic journey for us......It was a dream :cloud9: until the prices came out and - really - that is a down payment on (insert high priced object of your choice here)

He went back and posted one of his favourite shots when I was finished - it is the well at the Spring at Kings Bay - a very green shot - I wonder if I can link to that board from this board - here goes....

Laura,

So you are heading to warmer weather next week for spring break? Sound nice, we are doing the opposite and heading for snow. We are going skiing at Lake Tahoe. Haven't been there in almost 20 years, so I am sure it has changed.

Yep! I head to the warmer weather every chance I get!!! I think most of metro Atlanta always has spring break the 1st week of April. Makes planning ahead a breeze! :sunny:

Have a GREAT time in Tahoe (I haven't been there in about 20 years myself!). No risky maneuvers, OK? Remember, we sail in less than 60 days!! :woohoo:





YAY!! A T.O.P. with my "neighbor" Susan, Spring Break, Florida sunshine and lots of snow for skiing at Lake Tahoe! :thumbsup2

Never mind...

It could easily go both ways Karen, and has in the past, why I say maybe. They ran Pirates on DCL a good deal before it's release date. But typically have held firm to the release dates from what I've read on the main forum, usually showing it at midnight in the WD theater. I want to see it too, but am really not going to get my hopes up that much, more a wait and see position.

In rumaging around, I found this interesting article, first, he writes this confusing article about it being premiered at Lowes, and second he has these fascinating pictures of a Hercules Main Street Electrical parade that ran in NY for it's premiere.

Ya, I know, he misses a whole bunch of things there, including that is the big race week at Charlotte, and they may actually fill it out.

And he also is confusing(why I edited my comment on him), in about halfway down the article he writes:
Well, if you're a frustrated East Coast-based Disneyana fan ... Do I have some good news for you!

Which I can only take as being happy about it arriving, after the first half of the article being so negative.

If it weren't for the cruise, we'd probably be there. My best friend lives in Charlotte, and we've been trying to get up there for a race... it would have been PERFECT to be able to get to the premiere!!!!! (I'm sure she'll be taking her kids to that one!!!)

A little background... the front doors (double doors, full glass) would stay shut, but rattled fiercely because the little 'button-thingy' that keeps the 'unused' door' in place had broken off when we moved in... we never really thought about fixing it til we realized that 100 mph winds made the doors rattle 'just a bit'. (We had the entire door opening sealed in plywood... so the little bit of wind that got in there made LOTS of noise... the hockey stick and the table kept it to a dull roar.)

We probably should have left the hockey stick and the table so that the new owners are prepared... nah... we left the plywood (all pre-drilled and labelled)... that was enough.

OK, better get back to the laundry. Like Pam said, at least all my housework is getting done. Talk to y'all later.


Pam - I saw your post on the "cooler" thread. yeah, now I have too many coolers/bags. That's OK, that big one will carry the big bottle of Seagrams for the hubby and the 7-up to go with it. He loves 7&7s, but around our house we just call them a "14" :rotfl: .

Well, I am hoping the "family" chooses a date before our cruise so we can book on board. In two weeks I start the trek to Orlando 5 nights a week with Lisa. Jim has promised us a laptop for Lisa's homework and my bill paying, DISing, etc. I will actually have time to "chat" if this happens, so we need to determine where we are going next. Besides, I can't finish a cruise without the hope of another one, and right now we don't have any others booked. Let's hear ideas???

Plus when you book onboard you usually get a 10% discount and a hefty stateroom credit (our last one was $200 stateroom credit!)

We usually vacation May and December, but are flexible to a degree. OSU football season puts a damper on things.

Sorry, but we're not planning any more cruises in the future until we decide to go to Alaska :guilty:.

But can we do that if we are using points? You can only use points 11 months out so, I think not....pooh!

We did not book anything on board in November since we had this trip booked before our November trip (oh decisions decisions).

I know this is beat to death on the DVC board, and we have been known to do it on occasion, but really you can make more money if you book the cruise with cash and then rent your points out for $10 per point. It'll pay off the cruise and cover spa ressies to boot! :) At least that was last time I checked before the DCL price hike (although, I'm sure there was an associated DVC/DCL point hike for cruises)

We have something like 492 "extra" points this year! (too many cruises). I'm trying to talk Mike into letting me rent them out. I mean, at $10 a point, that's a good chunk of change!

Alicia was reading my Cruise magazine last night, it had an article on cruising with teens. She liked the sound of all the teen stuff they have on Princess' big ships. Since many of you will have teens by then, is that a possibility?

I rented out almost all of my '06 OKW points to one guy, at $10 per. He's using it for 6 nights in a Grand Villa in September. Oh my, did he get a deal! That room would cost something like $1400 a night from Disney, he's getting it for about $400 a night. I will probably be renting more points out in 2007, if we're going cruising again. But I'm thinking the rental cost is going up a bit, because the darn membership dues keep going up. Big jump this year.

So, you guys are thinking book something on board, then rebook for summer '08? That might not be a good time for us, since DD will be 17. That's an in between age for a Disney cruise. Too old for the teen group, really, but too young for the adult activities and Palo. She would go if she could eat at Palo, I think!

It's a seller's market OM. Take a look at the DVC Rent/Trade board. I guess that board was mentioned in a WDW guidebook! Since Disney isn't offering much in the way of discounts these days, there are lots of people there looking for deals. My guy only had like 3 posts. But he wanted lots of points, and I told him half now and half two months out, by cashier's check. If you accept Paypal, not only do they charge you fees, but they could reverse the charge on you. So I gave him a good deal.

But yes, I think you can trust Angie! Just a bit of advice, since she probably won't need all 492 points!

We also have some points to rent out. We paid for 1 cruise with points, but booked early enough to save money. Sold 06's points to pay for the down payment (plus some credit card bills). Points would've been about 600 for the cruise and we paid closer to $3000. So we saved a boat load. I'll have to figure out what to do with 07's points. No trips to Disney planned for us, we are really hooked on cruising.

Oh my - more to think about....I have not ventured on the DVC board....yet....so I book a cruise -- say 2007 - then I push it over to 2008 -- then in 2008, I rent my points out for the "going rate" in 2008 or is it always $10.????

Thanks (my brain may not thank you right now but my heart does). :grouphug:

I'd be willing to rent DVC points from someone I "know" for '07. We enjoyed our stay at OKW in '04 thanks to Hurricane Jeanne. I'd be willing to try DVC again as long as I'm not paying rack rates!

Ang

Ang - we are using ours in 2007 --- at least that is the plan right now...

just in case that was a "hint".....now for 2008????

:offtopic: Nothing to do with DVC, sorry. My TA called today....she is making one more phone call for us to see if she can find out about Cozumel, and/or the alternative.

Anyway.....she was checking my "dummy" reservation that I had made onboard the Mexican Riviera cruise. We were holding it to use toward whatever DCL was doing in Summer '07. But since DCL called me, and I told them I wasn't going on the Med cruise, we were going to cancel the "dummy" reservation and put the money on a different cruise.
DCL had already changed my dummy reservation to one of the 10 Night Med cruises....in a Cat 3....which makes the deposit non-refundable!! I had originally been holding a Cat 4. $1000 deposit. I told them that we weren't going on the day that they made the announcement...so you tell me WHY they would book me a suite???
Luckily my TA is like a bulldog (only way cuter!) because she will dog them until they give me my money back.
What if the cruise they booked me on had not been a good date for us?

What that means is that they already had people booked, before they even started making the phone calls from the Inventory Control faxes!
My TA had another family that DCL had already automatically booked. Lucky for them, they want to go, and love the room and the date.
But, they had also booked another of my TA's clients for an 11 night, when they had requested Repo!

Well, I am hoping the "family" chooses a date before our cruise so we can book on board. In two weeks I start the trek to Orlando 5 nights a week with Lisa. Jim has promised us a laptop for Lisa's homework and my bill paying, DISing, etc. I will actually have time to "chat" if this happens, so we need to determine where we are going next. Besides, I can't finish a cruise without the hope of another one, and right now we don't have any others booked. Let's hear ideas???

I think you just listed a whole bunch of reasons to kill the lap top idea. Sounds like it is going to be way to expensive.

Got another blue screen, but managed to read all PM's. Now the Boards are really slow. Maybe it's interference from the rain/clouds.

CRUISE RELATED:

My TA just called. She spoke to someone at DCL who said that they have every reason to believe that we WILL be going to CC twice, Costa Maya and Cozumel.
For what that's worth anyway.

And she actually had to argue with them to get them to say that they will refund me my $1000. No one there could figure out why they gave me a room on a Med cruise, when I had told them no. :confused3

It isn't anything bad at all...above the player on the screen there is a button that does say "Adult only content" or something like that, but it is not for this particular video.

If it doesn't play for you, there is an FAQ that will tell you which WMP you need. I couldn't get it to play on my MAC...only the PC.

Hi All!

Again, while reading the main board I came across this driving warning from Shirley (of the Perfect Gift fame), to all of us who will be cruising down the highways and byways before the actual cruise begins!!: :cool1:

(I'm sorry if you've already seen it!)


If you will be driving into Cape Canaveral - consider this a warning
Hello there,
I just thought I would put a bug in your ear - when driving over here to Brevard county, be aware that additional forces have been put on the roads for speeders, DWI, etc - I won't warn the DWI's but I do want to tell you that as you leave Hwy 528 and come into Cape Canaveral the speed drops super fast first to 45 and then 35 miles per hr. - there must have been 10 cars pulled over to the side this afternoon and most were out of towners. You don't realize the speeding limit has dropped until its too late and the police are out in forces. So if you are not driving while drinking or doing something illegal,I just wanted to make you aware of the quick change, take heed. ESPECIALLY ON THE WEEKENDS.
Always
Shirley and Norm

Speaking of things that don't work, or do work. Check out this video commercial from Honda! (http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/honda.php)

There are no computer graphics or digital tricks in the film. Everything
you see really happened in real time exactly as you see it. The film
took 606 takes. On the first 605 takes, something, usually very minor,
didn't work.

They would then have to set the whole thing up again. The crew spent
weeks shooting night and day. By the time it was over, they were ready
to change professions. The film cost six million dollars and took three
months to complete including full engineering of the sequence.

In addition, it's two minutes long so every time Honda airs the film on
British television, they're shelling out enough dough to keep any one of
us in clover for a lifetime. However, it is fast becoming the most
downloaded advertisement in Internet history. Honda executives figure
the ad will soon pay for itself simply in "free viewings" (Honda isn't
paying a dime to have you watch this commercial!). When the ad was
pitched to senior executives, they signed off on it immediately without
any hesitation - including the costs.

There are six and only six hand-made Accords in the world. To the horror
of Honda engineers, the filmmakers disassembled two of them to make the
film.

Everything you see in the film (aside from the walls, floor, ramp, and
complete Honda Accord) are parts from those two cars. The voiceover is
Garrison Keillor. When the ad was shown to Honda executives, they liked
it and commented on how amazing computer graphics have gotten.

They fell off their chairs when they found out it was for real.

Oh. and about those funky windshield wipers. On the new Accords, the
windshield wipers have water sensors and are designed to start doing
their thing automatically as soon as they become wet. It looks a bit
weird in the commercial.

My sister in law and her new DH went on the Mariner of the Seas last December. They LOVED it!! They went for a belated honeymoon (October wedding, but she's a student and teaching assistant, so had to wait for break) They had a BLAST! Said the food was great. Entertainment was great. Lots to do (we've seen pictures of them on the climbing wall, etc etc) She can't wait to go back, but he's the financially frugal one in the family and he says "not now."

HTH. I can get more info if you have specific questions. :)
