Paul. How was the ice this morning? Everything around us was frozen solid this morning. Hoping the warmer weather today melts most of it before the inevitable refreeze again tonight.

Middle school provincials are this weekend followed by the district championships. This weekend could be tough as we are in with varsity teams from some smaller schools.
Congratulations to your son! And good luck in the coming games. it's exciting to be playing at a high level.

We divided our players into 2 teams this year instead of cutting players and we play the others tonight. Hopefully the players are ready. There's a lot of bragging rights hanging on this one.

I did that once. The first meeting was neighbors fighting about a fence being 2 inches too close to the road, a tree house that was an eyesore, parking on the street and why only very few people show up for the meetings. I told them no one shows up because they don't really want to waste three hours listening to people complain about fences, cars and treehouses. I guess they didn't need me anymore to answer questions after that.

Good luck with that! Sounds like what I do for 8 hours a day.

I purposely avoid the HOA meetings in our neighborhood. If anyone ever found out I was the DOT guy, I'd never get a moment's rest.

John, I'd love to see what you have. We typically do a smaller graphic for the front pocket - and I try to whip up something for the backs of the shirts, incorporating the smaller graphics in it.

Thanks for the help!

Sounds fun. We have the points, but the airfare is the challenge.

It's a car dealership one - I doubt it's the same as yours. Staying at Rosin Shingle Creek.


Now, I have a 4 day MYW ticket for my June trip....do I upgrade that ticket to an AP knowing that we may got down for Spring Break next year?

I ask because I'm in the auto industry as well. In fact, I think I stayed at that resort for a Chrysler meeting a few years ago. ***They don't have complimentary transportation to Disney. Just Universal and SeaWorld I think. Plan accordingly.

Sorry Chris - didn't know you were in the auto industry.

This is the Digital Dealer Convention.

And I'm already working on getting a rental car for the 4 days I'm there.

I'm debating on whether I should upgrade my MYW ticket for my June trip to an AP so I can get some park time while I'm there in May.

Otherwise, it'll be time spent at DTD or the Boardwalk to get my Disney fix!


My current AP expires 4/6/13. My conference starts 5/6/13. But, if I understand correctly - if I did the AP renewal - it renews with the same expiration date as the current AP has.

This won't help me for our Spring Break trip for next year as it'll be late in April.
