Brent, they are totally different quotes.
Well he does still have a day job, but running this shop is something he loves so he pretty much works normal 9 to 5 then comes to the shop and works till like midnight, don't think he has turned a profit yet aside from new inventory and utilities but he hasn't lost money so I guess that's good

So, all he sells is MTG? Just curious, I sold them when I had my Comic Book Shop and they didn't bring in enough to pay the phone bill, let alone the rent.

Hahaha... They don't want to unleash the posting fury of a mad Canadian.

Especially when he just finished with a Trip Report update...



OK, that was really a shameless plug.

Just go check out the Trip Report! (link in sig)

And just a reminder - for those who may be interested... my trip report will serve two purposes. 1) Standard Trip report stuff... and 2) and more importantly... I have tallied EACH AND EVERY RECEIPT from the Disney Dining Plan and I will put it to the test from the perspective of it's value. If you want to know the outcome the only way to know, is come along for there ride...




(or you can just ask me)

Hey Brian, is the dining plan a good value?

That's quite a loaded question...

It really depends how you use it.

But I heard there's a full analysis coming to a trip report near you!

Yeah, I admit, the staycation gave me a leg up. Can't access the boards while at work, so I'll drift back down the list soon.

Poke Poke. Works on sleeping bears and wasps nests too.

We did a rough estimate last year and it totally worked out for us saving a ton of cash. We are really hoping to land free dining for next year.

Granted, as DW pointed out, if it wern't for the free dining, we wouldn't be eating in a lot of those places etc. Best QS we wroked out was Yak and Yeti, I think believe it would hae worked out to $50 if we had paid for lunch there.

Hey there guys...I've been away for about 3 or 4 days if you haven't noticed.....

Spent the last couple of days in Canton for my cousins wedding. Very nice ceremony at a vineyard. Good food and even better wine!

Just getting home and now it's time to catch up on laundry and the housework that didn't seem to do itself while we were gone!

Hope all is well with everyone.
