Ahhh that makes sense now, well I'll have to weigh those options, don't see taking her on a cruise till maybe she's 8 or even older so I might do resale till that time, for the trips in between

We are trying a cruise next year. I can't imagine liking it more than WDW.

Are you paying for the cruise with DVC points? Is the exchange rate a good deal?

The cruise was $2700 for the 4 of us. I think it was over 300 points. Normally, we use a little over 100 points for the week at WDW. But, it does include food.

Yesterday I did get to meet Jack Hannah again, and I did ask the question Why are there no platypus's in any zoo's in the U.S.

He liked the question and before answering it he added that only 2 zoo's in Australia have one

But the answer is that the Australian Government will not grant release to let any out of the country, they feel they are best protected in their natural environment

Although I would really like to see one, It was great to hear that they are doing well in the wild and are not endangered

That sucks. Did you get any damage from Katrina when it moved up through the Midwest? We didn't get much wind from this one, but Katrina put a tree limb through my garage roof.

So the Flynn Fletcher family is violating some kind of international treaty or something? Is this the kind of thing Disney endorses these days???

I'll try. Managed to get through today's conference call without snoring once


We had a big soccer win tonight and the 3 points moved us in 4th place and the last play-off spot. Two more games this weeks against the last place team and a chance to put some space between us and the 5th place team.

Only 2 meetings tomorrow and no soccer.

Disney is probably doing a great public service, Really without Perry how many kids do you think would actually even know what a platypus is

See that sounds awesome, Id stow away in the luggage but I've seen some of those customs checks and I don't like the rubber glove treatment
