Congrats on your low bp!! You just need to take care of yourself (which it looks like you are!)

That's great!
And no kidding. My husband and I discussed hemerrhoids (or however you spell it) last night. GROSS! Suddenly my son is taller than I am (I swear it happened overnight) and my husband and I have all these "old people" complaints. And we discuss them!

Ain't that the truth JT. Absoluely wonderful news on the bp (and yet another sign of life changing, lol we start talking about our medical conditions).

I'm fanatical about the men folk taking care of themselves.

Any one hear any reports about the new RFID bracelets? Have they phased them in yet?

When we bought VWL three years ago, we didn't close until late April, and we had to go on a waitlist for our early December trip (holiday season at VWL is tough to come by unless you own there). However, the waitlist did come through a few months later. All that to say that I believe pixie dust will follow you on this journey. ROFR is annoying, to be sure, but I'm confident that will pan out as well. Good luck and welcome!

JT: Great news about your BP! Keep up the good work; diet, exercise, plenty of water and most importantly take time for yourself whether that be reading a book, baking a cake or taking Tammy on a hot date.

DDad and I have similar issues; arthritis, adult onset asthma among others. Our 58th year has not been kind to us. We can only hope 59 is better!

One week from today we'll be at Aulani!

Hey Eliza! I have heard that it is still coming out in phases -- and something about only tickets purchased through Disney.

I've been pricing out our tickets, and although Disney is more than Undercover Tourist, I may use Disney, just to up the chances of getting the "new" tickets. One thing I read was that even the folks who didn't have bracelets, but had the new plastic tickets, got to go through the quick entry turnstile.

There's so much sketchy information about all this out there right now... who knows! But I'm guessing that getting tickets from Disney couldn't hurt.

Thanks for the good wishes. The holidays are our favorite time at VWL, which was the main reason we wanted to buy there! And actually, thinking about it, anytime is my favorite at the WL...but still working on my wife! She is slowly coming around to love it as much as me.

Hey, that is great news! Not Van Halen, but good news!

Hi E

I called my sister today (RI) and she has a plan and my cousin is in Boston, he hasn't checked in yet.

It's going to affect lots of people, everyone got everything prepared??

This is the blizzard, right? I don't watch the news -- seems like all we have on are kid channels!

I hope everyone will be fine. I guess the main concern is power outages and cold?

I wish we could take a little of their snow and enjoy it down here. They have too much, and we have none!

To all the eskimo groupies -- stay warm and safe!
