PoSt away folks!




Here's to the wine we love to drink, and the food we like to eat.
Here's to our wives and sweethearts, let's pray they never meet.
Here's champagne for our real friends And real pain for our sham friends.
And when this life is over, may all of us find peace.

Yup, always fun to be woken up by an earthquake. Epicentre was right rear tytiger's place, actually. Apparently this one was shallow, so it felt pretty shaky, but not too intense.

I somehow didn't feel it but my wife did. Of course we are a solid 40 miles from you and the epicenter so it makes sense.

Yeah, 4.7 isn't too bad. Big enough to make sure you're paying attention, not really big enough to cause (structural) damage.

Glad to hear you all are ok!

How did you get the possum out? Or did you just adopt it? They are kind of cute in their own way.

In other news, got a response to the bball nets/iPhone4 issue.

No record of shipping me the nets, so a whopping $3 credit, since they "don't have them anymore". Any bets they show up (bought off Sport) during the Woot-Off?

Oh, and a FedEx label to send back the iPhone4. Hah!


Edit: TT, I thins someone needs a head smacking over there ... I doubt they even followed up to see if the nets were shipped to the iPhone4 purchaser.

Yikes! How did an opossum get in your house? I know, you're still trying to figure that out. But, yikes! Glad you're alright!

Edit: PS: don't try and catch them.

If you get time, check out the Titanic Exhibit on International Drive. Pretty cool.

Edit, and remember to go left (counterclockwise) in the parks. Everyone goes clockwise.

There's also a book you can buy called Hidden Mickeys that will help you find hidden ... uh, Mickeys throughout the parks. Fun while you're waiting in line.

There's also an app you can download that will give you line times.

It's because each offer is on a timer. So after a specific amount of time it will count down to zero. Otherwise we would be stuck on wine cases for days.

You opened one only 2 days after shipping? Really? shakes head....

Which one by the way?

My Fjellene was the same story. I find that it happens more often with out of state wineries.

we always start at the back of the park and work our way forward. We also don't wait more than 30 min in line. We go find something else then come back.
