No string quartet or dancing? My vacation is ruined!

Glad your goodies arrived!

Next month! That's crazy! I don't know about you guys but I'm so excited! Met with a friend for lunch yesterday and he showed us his Venice photos. (Got to love the ipad for photos at lunch) Even in winter it was so beautiful.

Howdy Folks,

As today is my birthday, John has offered to take me to dinner and a movie....both in the same place!

This means I'm going to miss ABD chat.

However, the room will be open, and you're welcome to use it.

I will also be gone next week, but the same applies.

Please feel free to take advantage of the room.

If you have any questions or concerns....just let me know.

Thanks,
Kevin

Ah crap!! Missed chat again. I really need to put this in my schedule to send me a reminder. Hope we didn't miss too much. We'll try to make next week's....I promise. Unless we forget.

Kevin, hope you enjoyed your dinner and movie. Let me know how you enjoyed Wrath of the Titans!!

This might be beneficial to some of the folks going to Italy so I'm posting a link to the article here:

Starting this Sunday, AT&T will begin offering out-of-contract customers the ability to unlock their iPhone and use it on another carrier.

So if you have an iPhone and are on AT&T and you are no longer under the 2 year commitment to AT&T, this will let you unlock the iPhone so you can get a different "micro-sim card" to use the iPhone while in Italy.

I hope someone (Mike Holland) will correct me if I'm wrong.

Note that this won't apply to Verizon iPhones. I don't know for sure but believe that even if they were "unlocked" they could not be used in Europe. Sorry, Frank.

You are correct, Jack. I got an email from ATT's Enterprise Business group about this yesterday.

By my calculation it is 46 days before our adventure first begins. This also means that it is 36 days before the internationally known leader of the smallest country in the world says something to upset one of the largest religious groups in the world.

(Yes, I've been listening to old (9/19/06) podcasts).

You just have to decide if you’re a Tigger or an Eeyore.

Chat was quiet last night, I was on for the first hour with Tracey and Jason.

We had a nice time, discussed some old times together and plans for lots of shopping during this trip!

Everyone's looking forward to the "box" arrival and our final schedule so that we can make plans for OYO time.

See you next week in chat!

41 days!!!!!

Morning All -

I spent yesterday preparing my tax return. I itemize and, in Tennessee, that's fun because we have no income tax so if we want to deduct state taxes, we have to add up the sales taxes we've spent over the year. It's depressing to see how much money we fritter away on frivolities such as food and gas when the money could go toward trips to Disney World.

Since I never get a refund, I look forward to tax time as much as McBeth looked forward to Banquo's ghost. Blood will have blood, they say...

But don't take me as complaining about taxes because my point is that with taxes now behind me, I am now really pumped about being only 38 days from the official start of the trip.
