Where you booked at. Thatll give me a better idea of whehter to just throw something on the grill or come closer to your hotel.
I'm staying at the Marriott downtown - it's close to where our hearings are held. I'm actually toying with the idea of just driving there. I hate dealing with the Denver airport, and if the hearing runs long I'll have to stay over an extra night because the last flight back to KC is fairly early.

Well my happy place is actually sitting across from Aloha Isle...but for some reason when I hear the Star Tunnel music (exit of Space Mt.) I am in the Magic Kingdom.
Tie: 1) “At-mo-Music” around the entrance to EPCOT (my favorite park). It just sounds like adventure and curiosity (if those ides were to have a sound); 2) Illuminations - the overture from that show never fails to yank a tear or three out of the corner of my eyes.

I worded that badly. I haven’t (as of yet) had to opportunity to work for Big Blue directly, I’ve just spent the vast bulk of my career operating, maintaining and programming on their hardware (old COBOL, Assembler, RPG man).

Garden City is where we spend our beach time. My dad actually owns a small condo on the second row a couple blocks from the main intersection. It’s showing it’s age, but it’s paid for and a free place to stay is just a deal that is hard to beat.

John, I'm glad to hear it went well! Hope his ticker keeps ticking for many more years!

Daring... Casa Bonita is the place the locals have to go when they have run out of things to do with out of town guests. Casa Bonita usually falls in after the Coors Brewery tour, and Buffalo Bill's Grave. Only jokeing...
My wife said I can go.

We usually wind up spending our time in Cherry Grove. Much quieter up there.

Seconded. Its like someone took a "how not to design an airport class", and thought the only way I could improve on this would be to do all those things and build the airport ridiculously far away from the city.

I was thinking more in the lines of Cheesecake Factory, Chophouse and Chez Jose's.

Is it the Marriott City Center...if so my building is right next door, if all else fails we could do lunch or grab a coffee.

My 5

Mark,

Great and touching post. Our legacies will never be determined by job titles or net worth, but how we shaped and molded those given to us as a gift from God. My 5 would be:

1) Put God first, Family and others second, and yourself third. Serving others is more beneficial then being selfish.
2) Hope - Hope is a gift and it breeds joy which lifts us up when we are at our lowest. This of course ties into serving and loving God.
3) Do what you love. Find what it is life that moves you and pursue it with all that you have.
4) Never root for the Red Sox - I will disown you in a heartbeat and never speak to you again, and you better never date a boy that likes them either or you will find yourself on the first train to the convent.
5) Never stop trying. You will spend your life in a pool of regret if you throw in the towel every time life gets hard. Losing is part of life, failure is when you refuse to try and improve.

David
