[quote=Lynn G;31383760]Good Morning Cruisers!

I am having trouble keeping to my walking schedule, either weather or work! Now that I do not have any work to do, it is the weather! We got about 3-4 inches of snow last night - still snowing, predicted to be 10-12 inches by the time the snow stops tomorrow sometime! It won't last long, it will be 60 degrees on Sunday, and up to 70 but the end of the week! I may have to hit the treadmill for my walk today, and the dogs will just lose out - no way am I going out there in the wind and snow unless I have to!quote]

Lynn- Sorry about your weather. It's been sunny with highs in the 80's. We did a 20 mile walk on Sunday. We fly to Nashville tommarrow for the Rock N Roll half marathon on Saturday. We are upping our milage for the San Diego marathon the end of May. Carolyn thinks I'm trying to kill her. Hope Spring weather vivits you guys soon. Alex

Hi Georgie

Don't look to hard for a price break. It seems that everyone always has the game console at the $224 price. If you want one and see it in a store - you better buy it.

Thanks for the advice Ken. We are totally green when it comes to Wii. The prices out here are $299. I will start Googling!


Carolyn and Alex... WOW! Have a great run. I'm hoping some day Joe and I will be able to do 8 miles at a 15 minute pace...

Geez if you can find The Wii at $224 GRAB IT!

Standard price is $249 from what I've seen everywhere. Georgie they had them at Sam's or Costco for the $249. Or try Wal-Mart.com and have it delivered to your favorite store for free. Does the $299 include an extra controller? Some places bundle them like that. The $249 price includes only one controller and Wii Sports game. The additional controller +Wii Play is around $40 but you can always look on that auction site...


So far we have the Wii, an extra set of controller/nunchuck thingys, the Wii FIT board thingy and pretty much only the games that came with them. The kids bought us "Endless Ocean" which is kewl for identifying fish etc when we snorkle. I can't figure out what else it does..
I want to get that Disney Think trivia game but haven't seen it locally.
Now they have the Disney Dance thing which looks fun too. Yeah, in my spare time. I think my Mii is in a coma on the FIT.... I haven't been on it in ages... I'm a mean bowler though and am getting better at tennis!

Okay.. enough Wii talk....
Georgie you need the Nike+ipod thing too....

Life has been nutz fro me, I need a vacation........

My trial that was scheduled for this weeks was postponed, my FBI agent was going to cover a presentation for me on 4/21 and My tech/IT guy was going to do the afternoon session for me on that same day. FBI guy gets jammed on case work so with the trial canceled I say I’ll cover the morning presentation. KEWL tech/IT guy all set to cover the afternoon session. Plan to leave office 0600. Monday 6:40 PM call from tech/IT guy, his mother suddenly passed away. 4 Hour block of instruction to fill, into the office at 7:00 PM crank out a course of instruction get home 12:30AM try to calm mind and sleep, 2 hours sleep at tops. Up and at it Tues Morn, dive 170 miles one way (FBI guy drove, thank goodness and he was a great help) present morning and afternoon home last night 8:00. I was a tired puppy. Such is my crazy life, it is days like that where the fitness people say you can always find time to work out…….. Right, here are my shoes walk in them a while…

Wii can be fun for sure.
Looking at the Lanyard list, looks like only a couple of us on Deck 2. Will have to see how that goes, might shoot for an upgrade at the port. Might not work as we are doing a Back to Back.

Alex you guys are really cranking out the mikes... Great for you.

Scott... Wow, you have been in the fast overworked lane for a while. Do take care of yourself. Keep cracking those cases!

Leslie... Thanks for the Wii information. Now that Joe has seen the Wii Monopoly, I think he is game Now that I know what to look for, I'm a bit more informed (but that never stopped me from shopping before!

I have the iPod Nike thingy. I think it's in a box in m bedroom!

Sunny today in NJ. This weekend predicts temps at 89!!!

My bad - $249 is correct. Shari also plays "Endless Ocean" - it puts me to sleep. Shari is also hooked on "Animal Crossing".

I think it's kind of pointless. But Shari enjoys it.

Good morning everyone! Another day closer to the cruise!

Nice day today on the left coast. Got in 50 miles - the longest yet this year. However, I think my legs are a little upset with the extra miles. I can only imagine what they would be saying if they could talk.

Have a great day!
