    My dh knows how to adjust the settings for computers, he even has a special adapter, so I don't even have to think about cleaning electronics or my blow dryer. The pressure washer he got isn't too strong but strong enough to get what we need done and I can clean 2nd story windows all by myself from a step ladder:joyfull: That being said he doesn't get much at HF(most of their stuff is junkier than other stores) but I curse our local hardware store, Lowes and Home Depot

    @FutureCEO are you still upset about us getting the rat? We're all quite happy about it in my house because it looks like it will not impact France except as an addition in another area which we hope will thin the crowds in the other areas there. I'm hoping against hope rat merchandise will be moved out of the kitchen wares store.
    I may or may not have quite a few useful items from there

    I totally recommend The Polite Pig. First, the 6 of us ate for $53. We had one kids meal shared between 2 kids. I had 3 sides, the watermelon salad, brussels sprouts, and roasted corn. Dh had the fried chicken sandwich, ds had the kids ribs, and dd15 had the chicken wings. They were more like drumettes and there were 6 or 7 of them. Loads of meat. Dh was very pleased with the meal especially considering we were sort of arguing about where to eat. But all was good in the end. Plenty of seating as well and we were there just after 12. Maybe 12:30?

    At AK. Thought we could maybe do standby for the banshee ride. Nope. Most of the crowd headed to Pandora. No one really went to the right so we decided to head to Asia and try EE. It is down. CM said it should not be long. Dd6 is finally tall enough to ride so we are waiting.

    While they are building behind France and a open pad.
    They seem to be using a big chunk of the current open pad pavilion, which means one less country? unless they just add smaller things there.

    Man, I really wanted them to add another country too. Like brazil!

    By law these have to go to tax referendum and voted yes or no by community members during a general election. They referendum must state if it is a forever or the length. Ours always seem to be temporary

    Our area invests heavily in Park Districts and Education along with our Fire Dept.

    Year round schools have the same amount of days off for vacation just compiled differently. If a kid can't decompress in a shortened 6 week summer it is more than school that has a kid unable to handle learning

    I believe in homework. I don't believe in burying students in it. Math facts, spelling, reading need reinforcement. Still just enough to reinforce concepts taught that day. It sets the concepts in as a review or demonstrates which students grasped or didn't

    I agree with this. I helped my friend's kids one year and was shocked at the amount of homework they had. They'd get home from school and basically do homework until bedtime, with *maybe* a half an hour to watch tv or take a walk outside. The weekend was the only playing time they had. I think some subjects definitely need reinforcement outside of the classroom, but I also think less overall homework would be a really great step in the right direction.

    I thought the insiders said Brazil is still happening just delayed that's why it wasn't a D23 announcement.

    I'm just hoping its true as well.
    But then, even marni has been wrong a very few times or plans changed in the last minute.

    Plenty of room in WS for multi countries. A new country? I will believe when built. Been down this road before I remember that tree.

    Doesn't not belong in Epcot. Although that saying is a little mute at this point after Mexico and Norway. Whatever happened to actually showcasing the country.

    Demand is what happened. Some like the showcasing, others are bored with it. Such is life.
