  1. I've been around here long enough to see when new people have shown up, Tools were born. Some of those newbies have become the standard now.

     

    When you have people co-existing, you need rules. That goes with forums and in the real world. Otherwise I would've killed a few dudes ahead of me in the Subway Line today and nobody would've cared. But unfortunately, there are rules against that so I waited in the line instead. Same thing on the highway. Speeding to some is driving 57 in a 55 while others might think more like 98 would be in order. If you're on the same road, you need to follow some guidelines. Sometimes those speed limits are posted along the road just in case you don't remember the rules.

     

     

    Why do all the black Asian women drive slow in the left lane on the interstate?


  2. We havent done this in a while. For those that arent familiar. You post a movie quote and then the first person to answer it correctly gets to post their quote. Dont post a quote unless you have correctly answered one

     

    Here we go. One of my favorites. An absolute classic

     

    Are we cross ? What an ugly thing to say. If I thought you weren't my friend, I just don't think I could bear it.

     

     

    whomp, yer my huckleberry. Tombstone

     

    I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.


  3. By the way, we bought a book which recommends for Universal, that you get in line about 30 minutes before the park opens (especially if you are going to try to get into Harry Potter World).

     

     

    Similar to the book for WDW. The parks all do a show at the opening which the kids enjoy and some rides (Soaring @ Epcot, Toy Story @ Hollywood Studios) will have a 45 min wait if you get there 10 minutes after opening.


  4. We will be staying at the Disney site for 5 days. Decided to get the meal plan for simplicity sake.

     

    Anyone have recommendation on where to eat onsite? What about offsite? We are staying at the Nickelodeon hotel for the other 4 days.

     

     

    I can't recommend enough the book I mentioned above. It reviews every restaurant and helped us get much better value than we otherwise would have. With the meal plan, you get certain items like an entree, side, drink and dessert. The book told us exactly what that would include at each restaurant so we didn't have to walk into each one and try to figure it out on the fly. It also gives great advice on which character meals to do. By the way, you'll need to make reservations as far in advance as possible for many of the character meals.


  5. How old are the kids? We went 18 months ago with our 4 kids, then aged 3,5,7,9 and they each enjoyed different things. We took them out of school and lines were still longer than I thought they would be. We stayed on Disney property and didn't go to Universal Studios. Even though we were there for a week, I'm glad we didn't try to anything else. If you search for threads on here, you'll find some good info as a few people go regularly. If you want to maximize your time at Disney, buy the book "The Unofficial Guide to Disney World". It reviews every park restaurant, let's you know what the best deals are, helps you with ride strategy so you minimize your time in line, etc.

     

    Also, while you are there, make sure you download a line wait time app for your phone so you can easily tell how long waits are.


  6. My guess is 3-4 hours. I know you didn't ask for comments, but I'll give you one anyways, I'd really suggest you change the format of your auction. Our league tried going around the table once and we didn't even make it through the entire auction before we changed to open outcry. Even without an outside auctioneer it is not unmanageable and it is much more fun. Many owners enjoy hanging back and not bidding until the end. Just my $0.02. Good luck.


  7. I've heard of this thing called the internets, and they say you actually sign up for sites like The Huddle using such a thing. I've never used the internets in this way but I have some really smart friends that have and say it works like a charm.

     

     

    Honestly? This is your response?
