Hey Woody I was missing you so I signed up and joined Monica as her roomie on this cruise...can't wait to see ya.

Speaking of around the Horn, Willie is working on a class project on the Transcontinental Railroad. He told me that it used to take 6 months by boat to get to the other side of the country back in the day, then the train cut that time down to a mere 7 days of travel. Doesn't 6 months sound too long by ship even back then???

That's fab!!! My friend scattered cat litter on her drive this morning in the absence of any alternative...

They tell us to keep cat litter in our cars up here just in case we get stuck... for traction... (along with a blanket and flash light and snacks and water...) I just stay home....

Everyone knows that you put bags of cat litter in the boot, so you weigh down the rear for extra traction.

You should have suggested that your friend uses some Mr. Kiplings. I understand he makes exceeding good cakes.

(Do they even still have Mr Kipling over there?)

I did exactly the same thing yesterday. DH went off to work and my car was parked on a sheet of ice. I needed to get out to the store so that was all I could come up with. Our stores have been out of salt/ice melt for weeks. Don't they know this is Pennsylvania?

It's also nice to see that they have made some changes as this photo that Michelle found shows:

Sophie had a photo shoot on her 1 month-i-versary but did not smile. Her parents said she was quite concerned about the bright lights. They live in PA over 600 miles from us so we have not seen her since our Christmas-New Years week visit. My favorite photo from then is a whole face smile so I will post that. She was 2 weeks old.



Thanks for asking.

I believe in celebrating the Birth Season which lasts however long you want it to, at least until the roses die!

I took a little step closer to our plans for our May trip.

Thanks to Monica, last night I bought tickets for Universal Studios. Monica found an excellent price for a 7-day 2 park ticket, that might (or might not) be a limited offer.

On this upcoming trip, we're wanting it to be a bit different, and seeing as it's been about 15+ years since we've been to Universal, we though we'd give it a go.

In about 1.5 months I'll order the vouchers for our WDW APs.

Sort of nice change of pace to be in the throes of vacation planning.
