@WebmasterJohn Do you know about the email with photo downloads from Pete’s Breakfast? Haven’t seen one yet and Pete had hoped to send it later Thursday or Friday. Or should I email Pete?

Thanks! And thank you for a wonderful event. I won your Rivers of Light buckets, the kids love them!
I haven’t gotten it either. I’m betting things have just been busy and he hasn’t gotten to it yet.

    It gets plenty hot and humid in NJ. The difference is when it does, we don't do things that require us to be outdoors for hours at a time. When the temp is in the 90s or 100+, we pretty much go from our house to our car to work or a store. We don't go for 8 mile walks like we do at Disney.
    That's the thing down here; so do we. Most people have jobs and live a life. We're all not on vacation going to the beach every day. I haven't been to the beach in at least 7 or 8 years. Besides I don't like the west coast beaches with their fine sand; I prefer the coarser sand on the east coast.

    We actually had a similar discussion about just this after my son picked us up from the airport. The discussion you had with me outside MK really had me kind of reverse my thinking. I always used to be somewhat scared of moving to Florida because of the summers. But when you really think about it....Florida’s summers are like our winters here for me. I don’t tolerate extreme cold very well (yay osteoarthritis) and stay in most of the winter. It would just be the reverse in Florida....and the winter weather there is simply dreamy. A new check in the box for reasons TO move to the magic😀

    I moved down from Central NJ in 1990 and never looked back. The things most of us missed (there is a Facebook group called Transplants from the Garden State to the Sunshine State) is food related. There's no diners in FL. And you have to search for anything "dough" related, bagels, pizza, etc. Forget finding a good hard roll down here. The water has a different mineral mix in it. A good bakery is hard to find too but they are dying all over. Taylor Ham was a non-starter down here until about 10 years ago. We have had Boars Head cold cuts now for about 20 years. They moved their HQ to Sarasota. Thumanns came right after them and Dietz and Watson weren't far behind.

    I was once visiting a friend on the east coast and he took me to a bagel shop. It was like being in NYC. They even sold papers from NYC and not the national editions. They had the NYC editions flown down every night for the Daily News, NY Times and Newsday.

    Thank God not hot, but disgustingly humid here in Joisey today. It's like wearing a wet blanket straight from the oven. Neither I, nor my body, enjoys it.

    Definitely. I realize that. That wasn't my point at all. I was just talking about those of us who are on vacation when we're here. We've come to do outdoor things - theme parks and other stuff. So when the heat index is 110, it kind of puts a kink in those plans. We didn't travel all the way here to stay in our rental home all day until the sun goes down. It would be different if we lived here, just like at home when the weather is extremely hot or cold.

    I know what you mean. It is a humid cool day here in Maryland, so it is not getting warm enough to kick the AC on. Blech😂
    I hate days like that. We have 2 dehumidifiers in the basement so that helps a little but sometimes we just turn the AC down to the point that it comes on even if it makes the house too cool just so it can suck out the moisture.

    Maybe I've gotten used to the heat in the past 29 years. But everyone knows I'm heavy and I wore dark T Shirts, mostly black, pantyhose and jeans and I was able to deal with the heat pretty well.

    For sure you acclimate to your environment. We always joke about Floridians pulling out the parkas when it is 60 degrees, even folks who originally came from cold climates where 60 would have been considered quite mild. I'm sure you adapt to the heat to an extent also.

    Has anyone else won something but not there to pick it up and have heard from anyone on how to get the item mailed? I’m still trying to find out who to contact regarding this.

    Glad it seems that all had such a nice time, especially spending time with friends, old and new, which is always the most important thing, IMHO. And such an awesome amount of money raised for GKTW!!

    Maybe someday there will be an event NOT in surface of the sun times, so I can consider attending! :)
