I'm in Disney World!
Gotta love Spring Break. Get to visit the in-laws, whose internet connectivity consists of a AOL LAN connection! Mother-in-law says she doesn't use it much, but I imagine she might if it didn't take so long to load pages.
I love seeing all the cows on the side of the highways here, part of a tax scam where you get a different assessment if your land is 'agricultural', about 1/100 the otherwise rate (it's called greenbelting, preserving the agriculture). Thus, a dozen random cows in property ready for redevelopment, rented for the minimum time needed for the zoning.
Strangely, I note that everywhere I go there's the option for 'debit' when you ring a transaction that does not work on my debit/credit card so you have to push 'credit'. But then, why the choice? This little bug has been persistent in my Minnesota Home Depot for 10 years, and seems a nationwide issue.
Anyway, vacation reminds me that the happiness available to any man is available to everyman, as really all one needs are G-forces and water, and those are pretty accessible anywhere. But...the princesses here are a surreal treat for my 3-yr old Isabel, whose conception of reality has now been pushed back a couple years. experience.
