    I searched the thread but didn't see any results commenting on the Internet service in the villas. Is it accessible everywhere?

    Thanks Maria!

    I understand, you have some reason to be a little bitter. :rotfl: I think we can all agree though that we are just so glad to have hockey back.

    Hi v_1954, I've not had any issues in the room and I know my son was using his ipod with wifi in the lobby of both the villas and main building. I doubt the signals extend all the way out to the pools, docks and bus areas if that's what you mean by everywhere. Maybe if anyone has a negative report they'll speak up and let you know.

    We only use it in the villa, so no can help.

    Today I went to the dentist for my temporary crown. They told me to count on being there for 2 hours.
    Last time I was there it was freezing. Today I brought my warm, fuzzy blanket. Ended up using it.
    Looked like a dork, but a warm dork!

    Why is it that dentist's offices are so cold? Mine is too!!!!! And when you are sitting still, on nitrous oxide, I swear it is even colder. (But with the laughing gas, I never really care as much!):)

    Ah. Nitrous oxide. I haven't had that in a long long time. Enjoyed it though! I had good old Novocain :faint:

    Aw Jimmy, you are a very kind man.:goodvibes
    But I did look like a dork. :banana:

    Happy Tuesday Groupies!pixiedust:

    Thanks to all of the birthday well wishers. Yes, I am officially ancient. I have reached the minimum retirement age to receive partial social security benefits. I hope to work until they cart me out, however. :)

    And the Ravens... how about those purple birds? I watched the parade from work. It was crazy in Baltimore. It will be hard to keep the team together - so many free agents.

    I'm going to Orlando with DW and DS to attend the RC Sproul, Ligonier Ministries conference. Wife talked me into it. We're staying at OKW. She and DS usually do it, but I've been to the conference once. About 3 days worth of the word to equal a month or 2 of Sundays, I'd say.

    All those people in one place :faint: I was just glad there was no traffic when I headed home at 4.

    Is the conference like camp meeting? Any excuse to get to Disney I say!

    Happy Birthday :)

    Hey, not my fault, I just got home from the cruise on the Disney Magic very very late last night!!!:boat:

    I have been trying to recoop all day today.

    The Port of Galveston was closed so instead of docking at 6:45 am, we finally docked at about 10:30 am. A good 4 1/2 hours late. By the time we were cleared and got our luggage and to the vehicle that added another 3 + hours.
    By the time we picked up the puppies at doggy daycare it was well after 8 pm before we got home and it had residual fog which we were told was very heavy in our area all day also.

    But other than that it was a very nice quick getaway for this time of year. Of course now all my clients are calling and some had left their information at the house for me. All in all I am now swamped with work.

    I hope all of y'all have been well. Sunday, I get to make my reservation for the Grand Californian for the September trip. We went ahead and booked another cruise for April of '14 on the Fantasy. All in all a very good time. :thumbsup2:thumbsup2

    Just wanted to say Hi as a potential new VWL owner and hopefully soon to be groupie. I know that I already love the lodge and can't wait to stay there on our new points.

    I am currently in about week 2 of ROFR on our first VWL contract. Hoping for the best, but this waiting is killing me (not a patient person)!!! :rotfl2:

    How exciting! I wish we could someday be DVC owners, but for now, renting is the next best thing! Good luck to you! :)

    Blossomz is right, you are now one of us!!!

    I was a groupie long before I actually owned at VWL. I bought into DVC back in 2004, but didn't get a VWL contract until 2011, and I have been in the thread a long time.

    So grab a moosie and join us often and keep us informed on the status!
