Cool!
Or it would be if I were a DVC member…


And had the $399…






Dang my lack of disposable income…

Yes… Yes he does.

To answer the question: I know of it.

This time I was more picking at Zerfs when he joked that he had beachfront property in Indiana to sell. But as you already well know, IN actually does have a beach… it just fronts Lake Michigan. I did know that there are only a hand full of towns (other then Gary) along that stretch and being as Beverly Shores is more resort-ish and had the added bonus of actually containing the word: Beverly in its name… I just couldn’t resist the reference

It was actually a long way to go for a rather lame joke, but I had nothing better to do during those ten minutes, so what the heck.

http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2012/09/vilerat/
I think on line friendships are sometimes closer than in person friendships just like Brain the controller of the Universe has already said. I think that on line you get to know the person on a more personal level and feel more comfortable to share things that you might not share in person. I have enjoyed getting to know all of you on here and have really enjoyed meeting some of you in person. I hope that I get to meet more of you in the future...heck even my nemesis would be cool to hang with!!

I would love to hang out with you Steve, but for now unless we both add a few hours extra to our trips, it probably won't happen

Since friendship is generally the result of conversation and shared experience,
I’d have to say that those on-line ought to be considered in the same space as those in close proximity.
History is replete with folks that saw each other rarely but sought to converse via letter regularly.

Got my smartphone Samsung Focus 2 years ago and absolutely love it. I don't know how I got by without it. I might try the iPhone next because it would be easier to sync with my iPad.

So, you started this whole discussion. It is harder to drink beer and type than talk in person. I enjoy friendships on this thread. I've always thought of friendships as people with have common interests spending time with one another. We are all dads who share a joy of Disney. I'm all in.

My real life friends, I may see once a month, once every 6 weeks, sometimes a year. And seeing them, we will catch up on "How have you been doing?", "How's the family?", "Nice weather huh?"

But online... we talk almost everyday, we open up about real problems, and challenges in our lives.

For example... (not trying to put the spotlight on Chris here):



That quote speaks volumes to my point... Chris opened up about a very personal issue that he normally doesn't talk about face to face. But he felt a feeling of comfort to share this vulnerability with us.
And as expected, we all supported him and let him know that it was ok to share, and we respect his decision.

DW has had one of those headaches for a few days. I told her it was a tumor. She did it find that funny.

you going to record it? We surprised ours but didn't record it. It was probably more fun for us.
