We will celebrate my Birthday in true fashion on Friday cause the manchild will be here but today it was take out from Portillo's with Ribs, meatballs, chopped salad etc. Delicious.

A few of my Disney related presents for my upcoming Disney trip.

Crossbody Purse is for the parks. It's about 4x6 inches folds in half, and will easily slide into back pocket. I could put my tiny wallet in other pocket and iPhone and skip bagcheck many days anyhow. I envy guys that go in with a wallet and iPhone and they are in. Those express lanes are mostly guys. Jealous.

And a travel stainless steel, insulated wine mug with a clear lid. Poolside compliant.
Bonus, 14 ounces. I could spend hours by one of the 5 pools.

And @figmentfan423 my DD gave me a smaller 3 quart Le Creuset dutch oven. It is so pretty. 💓



Happy birthday @Gabe1 363178

Maybe have the girl bring her English textbooks so you know what she is suppose to be learning.
Watching Barney might not be the best idea (for anyone) but some English YouTube videos could be helpful. It's how my 10 year old nephew learned English since his parents forbid him from watching anything in Dutch or Slovakian (mother language) he only watched English kids videos now his English is so good he isn't allowed to watch those anymore. He's moved on to Manderin and German.
Wow, great idea!

I noticed the horizontal traffic lights. We don't have too many of those in my area. If there is a long beam like you showed in the photo, often the traffic lights will be in the vertical position, hanging from the pole.

Not that my observation here this morning is particularly fascinating or anything ... :p

could an elevated garden system helped?
Ours is elevated actually. It is a planting bed that is about 8 feet by 12 feet. The people we bought the house from built it. My guess is they built it probable because our soil is crummy and it doesn’t take much to dig down amd hit limestone. We were told that when developers build homes, they remove all the topsoil and then sell it.

exactly, there is no real reason to change every 6 months.. and hardly every year.
Unless of course its all about looks and showoff a new model constantly.
Glad to hear this from a technical person like yourself. I think too many people assume they have to upgrade all the time. What bothers me is all the waste (and I'm not just talking about phones, specifically). When I was growing up, my parents and grandparents would hardly ever throw out something that could be repaired or repurposed. Getting anything "new" was a big deal to our family.

I have a love/hate relationship with Illuminations. I loved the Illuminations I saw as a kid when the music focused on cultural music from the countries and each country lit up when it's music was played. But I also like the music with Reflections of Earth, but I hate that globe. That globe with the images that can barely be seen is a sore thumb to me. I like all the pyro at the start and I do like the end with the "We Go On" song.

I am really looking forward to Epcot Forever, that will be some fantastic music!
What music will be in Epcot Forever? I love We Go On as well.

Kielbasa loaf is a Polish lunch meat. Think smoked polish sausage just with ginormously more girth. Then they slice it like lunch meat. So try a Polish Deli.
We have plenty of Polish deli's here (the town is pretty much 1/2 polish, 1/2 dutch, and a big mix of mutts) but I truly haven't seen this kielbasa loaf!

If that fails try Meijer Food and Box stores if you have those down here. They carry it up here.
Plenty of Meijers.. they are headquartered here.... I'll have to check next time I'm there...

I mentioned our broken garage door a while back. The repair company said the door company no llonger makes our door so our options were a new panel, or a new door. Problem is the new panel wouldn’t look like the old and we have 2 garage doors, so one wouldn’t look like the other if we changed. Anyway just to change a panel would have been over $500 with labor. Mind you the only thing that was broken was the bracket that attaches to the garage door opener. So, dh and I looked on the door company’s website for repair parts and lo and behold they had a bracket that was universal. For $30 we figured it was worth a shot. Guess what? It works!!! :)

ridiculous how your prices are pretty similar to Mexico.

Around 4 avocados (1 Kg) is around 60 to 80 pesos depending on what the local big retailers say)
You can get them waaay cheaper if you drive near the avocado farms or the street vendors (like half the price)
Guess if you have a garden in Mexico you can grow one too. If I ever move to Florida I am getting one, as well as lemon, lime, orange, and grapefruit. ;)
