We have never rented points but this year we rented some of our points out for the first time. We used the rent trade board here and had no trouble. I told DW we were not the ones who really had to worry, other than the risk of getting a renter who trashed the place. Thank goodness this did not happen.

I will probably have to rent points to go when we do in May to see two of my nieces march down mainstreet.

Asthma attack, followed by strep throat, followed by allergic reaction to her antibiotic, followed by more asthma issues . . .

Now, Squeaker has a nasty cough, my throat is scratchy, and DW is having stomach issues today.

Darn it, we leave for Orlando in 10 DAYS!!!!! No one is allowed to be sick between now and the middle of October!!
Feel your pain. DD6 came down with strep throat middle of last week. She finishes her antibiotic on Friday. Now I just have to hope this is it. Oh and the desktop at home decided to crash yesterday. Ugghhhh. I'm afraid to ask what else could, forget it, too superstitious to go down that road. Here's to hoping the repair guy can recover some of my files, especially my itineraries for this trip. on the bright side, at least we're ten days away from our trips!!!!

I think the challenge of booking a vacation is a "good problem". as opposed to leaving in 10 days and half the family is ill... THAT'S a problem.

also, I think i read somewhere that Fed is back? You were gone? huh...

Agreed! Submitted for the Dis Dad's floor vote:

<manlaw>No one in any family of a Dis Dad is allowed to get the sniffles, laryngitis (me on my last trip), aches, pains, general feeling of anything abnormal within 10 days of, or during any scheduled vacation. You can be sick on your own time, Disney time is to be accident and illness free!</manlaw>

Thumbs up DIS Dad's Club Fantasy Football League - Week 2

Hello Sports Fans. With 2 weeks in the books, we now present the updated standings from the DIS Dad's Club Fantasy Football League:

SPORT GOOFY
The Mouse of Pain 2-0-0
Matterhorn Yodelers 2-0-0
Taxidermy Tech 2-0-0
Jasmine's Necklace 1-1-0
Grumpy Old Men 1-1-0
Passamaquody Dragons 0-2-0
Main Street Moose 0-2-0

TOUCHDOWN MICKEY
Thunder Mtn Locos 1-1-0
Test Track Dummies 1-1-0
Small World Singers 1-1-0
Duckburg Ducks 1-1-0
Le Cellier Dwellers 1-1-0
Figment Cowboys 1-1-0
Kerchak's Tribe 0-2-0

As you can see, 3 teams have gotten off to fast starts in the SPORT GOOFY Division with undefeated records after 2 weeks. However, the TOUCHDOWN MICKEY Divison is a jumbled mess with a 6-way tie for first place. Kerchak's Tribe needs to sign Tarzan this week or they could be staring at 0-3.

There are some big division games again this week as teams try to separate themselves from the rest of their division like the ice cream on a Dole Whip Float.

As always, good luck to all, except for Jasmine's Necklace as they are playing The Mouse of Pain this week.

So, I downloaded the monorail.wav from http://www.wdisneyw.co.uk/sounds.html and changed my sounds. So, everytime the computer logs on or off, you hear (really loud), "Please stand clear of the doors. Por favor mantengase alejado de las puertas." I changed the sounds on ALL the computers, including DW's work laptop. She is

So I checked this week's DisDads fantasy football standings on Yahoo for week 2. Maybe I'm missing something, but is anyone else noticing the points don't add up right for some of the games?

Say for Philadelphia vs Detroit, I picked Philly to win. They did win but Yahoo tagged it as a missed pick and awarded 0 points. Same thing for the Oakland vs St. Louis game and the New Orleans vs San Francisco game. Not sure how the Houston vs Washington was a push; I had Houston to win and they did by 3 points.

I don't play fantasy sports very often but the scoring here doesn't make sense. Just seems kinda' wonky.

Philly only won by 3 points so since you picked Philly it is a loss since the spread was 6. Oakland only won by 2 so that is a loss.

That is what makes picking with the spread even harder than picking outright winners. This is why I never bet on football.... not that I bet on any sports other than against my friends.
that's nice is online now
