Seems like a pretty cool phone.

Screen is a bit bigger than the iPhone

I am not super familiar with the Android OS, but it's very similar to the iOS

We have 3 years to form an opinion...
We have iphones here. The wife decided to upgrade to ios6 and crashed her phone. We tried to fix at home with no success. Apple said we needed to restore the settings and that made it worse. I guess it's the Genius Bar for her this morning.

Good luck with the phone.

Hope you have a blast, if I remember right you are doing the ToT 10 miler, let us know how that is, I hope they start doing it every year, a friend is willing to run it with me when the Harry potter expansion is done, and of course new fantasyland

Afternoon gents.

Had a good weekend. Gophers, Vikings and , Manchester United with big wins. I also went to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival this weekend. Had a blast. If Zilch the Tory Steller is at a Renaissance fair around you I suggest you go. They guy by himself is worth the price of admission.

We've got 2 and a half weeks till we leave for our family re-union. We're struggling though cause my sisters families don't really want to go to the parks while they are there.
Will we be there the same time? We return home October 12.

We'll probably do BBQ's and stuff at the resort in the afternoon so they're main costs will be park tickets, transportation and dinner in the parks.

How would guys try and convince them to spend the extra $600 or so to go from 1 day to 4 day tickets for their family? I've tried talking to them about the things in Epcot, AK and MK that I think their kids would really enjoy, but they are still really struggling with thinking about spending $1000 on 4 days of entertainment.

We're any of you nervous about spending the money on Disney before your first trip? I think part of it is that it's more about the reunion and less about Disney. If they had been planning a Disney trip I might have been different.

I'm at a loss as how to help her. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
I like the idea about getting them the DVD. My first trip, I had no idea how big Disney was, and only having 1 day of park tickets wouldn't have been enough.

Thanks. We are 5-1 on the season, and I'm happy with the team thus far. I have two really good athletes who have not played in a system before. So, while they do make plays, they leave holes as well. But, they are still doing well, and we'll get another shot at that team.

I really like my Samsung Windows phone. But, I like iTunes much better than Zune which is the Windows equivalent.

No bribing. They all get equal playing at all positions throughout the season.

Sounds fun, except for the fence work part.

Well, Day 1 of meetings over. Looks like the next two days will be even worse. Ahhh, meetings. Need to waste time? Need to waste money? Don't want to waste that money on employees? Have a meeting. Need to waste more money. Make the meeting last multiple day and provide lodging.

American Heritage Girls. It is like Girl Scouts, but Christ centered and no fund raising. They meet twice a month and earn a variety of badges.

Well I gotta tell the dads about my horrible father moment

My DD has a stuffed poodle named fifi that she adores more then anything else ( toy wise) well Thursday fifi somehow got lost at daycare and we spent Thursday and Friday looking for her at daycare, Friday night DD is balling her eyes out over missing fifi, well I get the bright idea to find it on the Internet and order a new one, and this one comes with a polka dot carrying case (even better ) so I order it and then tell DD I sent fifi off to the doggie spa to get clean ( a total lie I know) well she replies " fifi is just a stuffed animal and doesn't go to spas" , which of course I miss judged how smart and old my DD is. Moving on to picking my DD up today, daddy daddy we found fifi!!!! My eyes get wide and I realize Beverly i gotta come clean and apologize for lying to her, she forgave me, we'll we get home and new fifi arrived, DD takes one look, this one doesn't look like fifi. Talk about a DOH moment in fatherhood for me

They called the pharmacy and they did a pill count. Their pills were what they were supposed to be. So that means that someone took some out of her bottle before the bag was stapled closed.

Looks like they might have a dealer/addict working for them!
Hope this gets rectified soon. Will you get reimbursed?

I think you went above and beyond to make your DD happy.

Amelia's first "one true toy" was a small stuffed Ariel doll, from the Disney store, went everywhere with her. We got smart, and bought more when they got marked down and hid them. Came in handy when she got sick right before a Disney vacation, threw up all over ot. My mom who was waching her at the time cleaned/disinfected it, but had a strong cleaner smell, so we let ot air out and brought a sub, she never knew the difference.

Of course it is no longer her favorite.

That's a tough one.

I personally would think it's not worth getting involved.

Some people are determined to not have a good time. And if they already have a bitter taste about it because of the $$$, that's all they will obsess on. And if for any reason they don't enjoy themselves, they will always say "That %^&$%^ Ryan made us spend $600 for this?"

OR

You can tell them that it is the number 1 tourist destination in the world, and it is NOTHING like their local 6 flags, so pony up... and have a good time.
