Wow, looks like a nasty snow storm for the NE! Stay safe, stay warm and hopefully the power grid will stay intact!





And it might be a little bit wrong of me, but I'm kind of hoping for a big snow or ice storm like this one to hit the NY/NJ area during the Super Bowl weekend next year. Just to see what will happen.

Like I said feb is turning out to be a good month so far.
In other news the restaurant is still doing well, we are kinda coming into our slower period. 2-3 weeks and then we are back at it. As some of you may know DW is a TA, so we have approached a local company to take us both on and we are starting to sell travel together. I go and write my test soon and will be starting on the next few weeks. Of course we will focus our attention to Disney products but will be open to all destinations. The office was hoping that we could build some more Disney business for them.
This should keep us busy!! If we were not busy enough with a restaurant and two young kids.
Another adventure, hopefully it all works out.
Wish us luck....and maybe let me know how to add a few more hours to a day...24 is just not enough!
Glad the restaurant business is going well. Good luck with the TA business, hope it works out.

Yeah, but how much of that bourbon actually makes it out of KY?

Congrats! We are 194 days according to my calculations. Getting ready to speed book ADR's. Need to get a ticker set up soon.

Never heard of the +10 days. I'll have to give it a shot in few days when we hit the 190 mark. Waiting for a PIN or some type of deal. My mother got 2 pins this week, Up to 30% through 9/8/13 or FD for dates through mid July. the FD has a lot of blackout dates. I'm going to call this weekend and see if I have any PINs under my name.

Congratulations on the rais. I think your dues here just want up.



Solo trip? Probably about as likely as a solo trip for me.

POLY is better than no trip (no that I have stayed there) but it isn't high on my wish list. Didn't care for the food at Ohana and the theme doesn't do much for me. Wouldn't mind checking out the luau once. There are others I would want to stay at first.
I stayed at the Poly as a kid. I would like to stay at a monorail resort while we are still taking trips with the kids. The Poly seems to be a good choice for us, but without a good discount, it looks like back to POR in August. We'll see if what deals come out in the next couple of months.

Yup. Already planning to be in the office for a few hours tomorrow and head home before everyone else clogs up the highways. Stay safe and have some fun outside with the little ones. They are saying mid to high 40's by next week again so it may not last that long.

Well as long as your favorite team is playing I guess it would be OK to cancel it for a couple weeks until you finish shoveling out the complex or Superbowl can just be cancelled completely, got to watch what you wish for

Word on the Camry is the Timing chain broke which caused the water pump to fail. To replace it all, it will cost around $450. That is worth it to keep that car going.

My sentiments as well.

We also hit a record sales in bourbon, although not sure how much leaves the state. As for the 180+, you still have to call at 180 days out your first day. However, the second day of your trip would be 181 days out, and so forth. The 180+ was supposed to let you make the entire week of ADRs without having to call back each day.

I really liked All Star and POP until I stayed at CBR and had a fake beach, bigger bed, and NO WAIT AT THE BUS STOP. The DVC resorts are even better as I can walk to some of the parks.

Yes, we can both plan that solo trip in 2 seconds as it will NEVER happen. We did the luau show as we may never get to Hawaii. It was $$$, but we really enjoyed it.

..
And that was after closing 40 pain clinics? Apparently, we like our bourbon and our pills. Might as well legalize hemp and marijuana and get some new revenue streams. I meant to ask, are you in the pension system?

Maybe I'll come work for you. I can add a bacon and queso style to the menu.

Barry is going to help them fix it. When I cancelled those ADRs, I had to log in 4 or 5 times. It was terrible.

Morning Guys,


Just found out my weekend freed up. We were schedule for a day long board meeting/planning session of Friday but the potential for the storm to hit here has caused it to be rescheduled until mid-March. Now my planning can be concentrated on our cruise. 22 days until we leave, 24 until we sail!

We have already planned the family game time by the fire with hot cocoa and snacks. Of course mom and dad's cocoa will have a little more bite to it.
Sounds like a plan. Just make sure the snow blower has enough gas. I almost ran out a couple of years ago when we got 21".

Not bad considering Norm. I thought it was going to be A LOT worse.

Consider yourself lucky. My Camry isn't as old as yours ('03) but it's still running. I tell my daughter that it will be hers someday.

‘Morning all…
Haven’t had much time to even check in during the past week or so.
Dealing with the new year is a real pain from a work perspective.
That will get better in a month or two, but now it’s hard to even check in.

Guess I better head out and see what else I’ve missed around here.
Congrats where earned, and prayers all around (I’m sure we all could use a few).


Back in a while…
if I’m lucky.

Looks like we'll get nothing but cold rain out of it. If it's gonna be that cold, I want the snow so I can get a day off work. It's hard work being a non-essential employee.

That's that conversation we all dream of having with our kids, isn't it?
