Mike I am so very sorry to hear that you might have to cancel your trip!

I'm a Giants fan, not an Eagles fan, but it sure looked like Donovan was hit late. There should have been a fine accessed, if nothing else.

I missed the thread, too. Not that I would try to sneak into the parks. One time we were geocaching near DTD and we could not find the cache container. We gave up after a while. When we got home, I checked the cache's site and there was a post by the person who tried to find it before us. He was swarmed by Disney Security! They made him remove the container. I sure wouldn't want that.
Giants going down this weekend, literally, to the best new stadium. Romo - T.O. equals a win. Giants stunk it up against the Redskins. With Donovan down and Vick in the dogpound, looks like the Cowboys take the lead in the division.

We cannot abide such blasphemy on these boards!

Go Eagles!

Right on both points. I wanted to pull oldest out of kindergarten, and you think I said that we should skip the SATs. So, like most of our disagreements, I am wrong so we go in fall break. Not quite as warm as the summer, and lines are not that bad either. Hey, it is a WDW vacation - how can I be unhappy?

There's still a lot of hope our trip will work out. If it doesn't, it just wasn't meant to be, I guess. We should know within a few days but I'm not panicking just yet. I'm still looking forward to my first Dole Whip!

It will be tough to beat the Cows in their new stadium but not impossible. Keep one thing in mind: The Giants don't tend to "run up the score" like Andy Reid's gang. They usually get a lead and play conservative the rest of the way. And, they went into a prevent defense against the Skins in that last series which really did nothing but prevent them from playing defense. I'll never understand why teams do that. Believe me, when the Skins scored and had time for an on-sides kick, I started panicking. Don't count Eli and the boys out.

(yippeee!!) my uncle retired there about 15 years ago so we spent some time w/ him and my aunt. hes 80 years old and looks like hes 50.plays golf,tennis,swims. only way you can tell hes retired is by the big caddy he drives around in! retired from the marine corp. than went to work for them as an adviser till he retired at 62. its seems the govern. pays well. my aunt also worked for the marine corp. and retired. very nice people! i spent a few weeks in the summer when i was kid at there house in va. my uncle had 5 daughters he loved having me around! i dont see how he did it?

YIKES...that'd be tough....5 daughters..whew, I bet he kept a case of beer somewhere hidden "just in case"

My wife lived in Soccastee.....we get up there pretty often since it's only about 4.5 - 5 hours from us, and my parents still live in Charleston, so we always can "double dip" since we drive through Chas to get there..

I'm not a beach guy either. My MIL has a house right on the front beach in Garden City Beach, so that's the only time I end up at the beach---we usually go down for a week in the fall "off season" when it's open...

My MIL still permanently lives in Soccastee, so when we visit I bring my guns to hit the shooting range, and the boat for some Waccamaw River Bass Fishin'

Unfortunately I usually get to take my 30 year old still living at home BIL with me...I still haven't convinced him to go to the end of the range and hold my target up for me.....

hide your hound, vics in town!!! donovan being down it my give them a chance. they have replaced eveyone on that team since t.o. took them to the s.bowl but two people, him and andy. hmmmmmmmmmmmmm. the only failing business in the world that keeps failing and keep replacing the work staff and not the management. they need a qb that has more than 3 good weeks in a season and a coach that can only say "its my fault, i have to do better". at least the people from dallas and the state of texas dont have to pay for the new stadium like the eagles new stadium, than close the librarys,park and cut the police and fire fighters because the city of philly is broke! thanks govn.fast eddie!!!dont worry, ill pay for the new stad.!! wow, were did that come from? someones alittle bitter!

We go to Myrtle Beach every summer. We stay between Myrtle and North Myrtle near the Tanger Mall and the Super Wal Mart...ideal location for wife It is the Arcadian Shores area. I am not a golfer by any means..I detest the sport. I think it is because my Dad centered every part of his life around that darn white ball. I truly think he would have chosen the golf ball over the family if he had to choose between them. so, I hate the game...sorry to be the party pooper ha ha.
