    :hyper:Thanks Mac for making a HHN list! What does everyone think of the houses so far? At first I was a little eeehhhh about the cabin in the woods house, because the movie isn't 'scary', but when you look at the movie as it's intended there really is a ton of potential for a fun house. Evil Dead (the original) was hysterical, the remake was decent enough too that I can see it being a lot of fun.

    I can't wait to finally be at that point where we can make the move to Florida. I kick myself constantly that I didn't a few years ago when we had the chance.

    My ex said it was probably a rat snake which I choose to believe so I can sleep at night. It doesn't help that we live in an older house surrounded by cow pastures a few miles from a game preserve...we get all knds of wildlife, mostly opossum stealing the cat food.
    ::yes::ditto...they need to get some manners.
    :hug:so sorry to hear about your pup, they do become a part of our family. We lost our German Shepard, Harley a few years ago and it still hurts, but it helps to remember the good times like when he wouldn't get out of my van and I was running late for work so I took him with me and parked in the shade with the windows cracked as I only had to work for an hour that day...he sat in the driver's seat and blew the horn with his paw paw: :lmao: my co-workers talked about that for years.

    Tink and Sharky, I am a pup lover too. Lost my 2 labs years ago, and still miss them. And Tink, my male lab got car sick. I learned the hard way, no food for hours before our ride. I had to put both of them down when my DH was in Iraq. We had them for 12 years.

    Hi Mac! Just enjoying the start of an 80's run of temps instead of the high
    90's we've been having. So ready for the week-end. :cool1:

    Have a great day all! :beach:

    Thank you Lynne :hug:

    Our Bohemian Shep girl gets car sick too. We took her with us to Gatlingburg one year and from the far back seat I heard...

    Stealth Child- *exacerbated sigh* "Fruit bat your dog is leaning on me. (few seconds later) "Mom! Mystery is drooling on me!"

    I giggle avoiding eye contact in the rear view mirror.

    (a few minutes later) Step Son- "SHARK!!! SHE JUST THREW UP ON ME!"

    The hubs and I did our best to hide our laughter. The boys were being turds... they deserved it :laughing:

    not so sure i'd believe anything my ex told me:rotfl2: jk

    we live next to 'the woods' so we get more than our share of varmits in our 'hood. Not sure which creeped me out more, the mink, coyote, big black bear or the nest of copperheads we found behind a retaining wall in driveway (confirmed by game&wildlife). Still, i'd take them all over the kids that park at end of street and wander back into them carrying kegs.:rolleyes1

    Glad you had a nice time with them, tour groups aside.......I hope they do come for HHN.....be nice to meet them again, they were a lot of fun to be with :thumbsup2

    Rat snake???? Oh my goodness Vicki.......I would move....literally...... if I saw a snake..........I`ve never seen one for real outwith a zoo when I was a kid and I cried apparently then screamed bloody murder to get out of the building. What really annoyed my mum was I had begged to go in :confused3 I have that in common with Indiana Jones....I hate snakes ::yes::

    Big black bear???? Getting kinda freaked out worrying about where you all live........don`t know what a copperhead is.......will keep it at that......one less thing to worry about :blush:

    I was going to try your mock crab cakes recipe yesterday.......till I bought real crab and made......well, crab cakes :rolleyes1 lush!!!!!



    Well we were supposed to be on our way to the Hungarian Grand Prix today.......there`s a really long story.......isn`t there always :rolleyes2

    But short story is our friends needed the break more than us. They have had some really tough times this year. So passed along the flights, thankfully name change was doable, and gave them our hotel booking. We don`t pay for entry into the GP`s because of my family member so they got those passes as well for this GP. I really hope they have an amazing time :) That was a short version!!!!

    We are really just "Paying it Forward"...have been waiting on a chance to do something like this since someone did something wonderful for us a while back :goodvibes

    So weekend at home, least the weather is still glorious :cool1:

    I'm a bit concerned/curious. As some of you may know, I found out I was diabetic last year. Type 2, pill only. Well the beginning of the week, I noticed that I started getting super exhausted when I took my Metformin. Like I couldn't keep my eyes open at work kind of exhausted. I mainly noticed it Tuesday cause I was starting to get some energy again, then took my second pill and started getting tired again. Yesterday, as a test, I didn't take the metformin and felt super. Like better than I'd felt in weeks. WTH?!

    That is WONDERFUL!!! I am very much a believer in karma and you've got a big load of good karma coming your way I can tell!!

    I'd like to think that my friends would do that for me :)

    This usually lasts for about a week and should subside once your body adjusts to the change in the way it handles your sugars. You may want to talk with your Dr and let them know about any side effects you are having, but extreme fatigue is pretty common. Both my Dad and my oldest son have taken metformin, one for diabetes and one for insulin resistance.

    They swore up and down that you live in Ireland. I told them more than once you didn't but I don't think they believed me. :rotfl:

    Robbie - keep in mind, I'm not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV.

    Did you just start taking the pills? If so it just might take some time for your body to adjust. Are you eating any "naughty" foods - that might also have something to do with it. If you're concerned, contact your doctor?

    Hi homies!!! Can't sleep so have been catching up on this thread.

    Holy Crap!!! Snakes and bears and minks Oh MY!!! I clearly have zero reason to ever complain again. We are in an older 1950's house surrounded by trees now. Used to be in brand new townhouse with only the "landscape" trees and some external bug system that fed pipes thru the house so I was big time spoiled. Our plans were to buy old and refurb and I am so glad we decided to rent first!!

    Sending super hugs to all that have lost pets. I found out ours had to be put down in the middle of a client dinner and burst out into tears!!! That was a few years ago and I still get teary eyed.

    Blood sugar is not a force to be reckoned with. Sending good vibes that you feel better soon.

    BTG seem to be getting worse over the years. I mean do we really need the chanting?? Oh vey. I have never run into them at the Darkside though. Our worst experience was about 8 years ago at Sea World. #Scarred4Life.

    Oh. And been away for a while and now see that room keys are no longer used for FOTL. It's still unlimited tho right? Just in paper form now w a pic?

    Trying to plan a trip soon. Baby#2 is coming no later than Monday (it is finally sinking in - eeks!! hence the sleepless nights) so between budget, no vacay, and recovery may have to live vicariously through you all.

    Glad to see all of the changes; and yet, not much has changed at all!!! xoxoxo.

    i vote for you to have the baby on sunday.
    yea, like you have a choice ....



    be sure to give us a heads up when baby arrives.


    sending you :hug: for the loss of your pet. doesn't matter when it happened, it still lingers in your heart for years.

    a year ago last february/'12, the darkside announced that the ep system was changing for onsite guests.
    it didn't get off the ground until spring though.

    you check into the hotel, get your hotel room key card, then go to the kiosk near the lobby desk to create your express pass.

    show that tyvek paper ep pass at the entrance express line and you're good to go.


    come on back when you can't sleep.


    i'll leave the light on for youse.
