    I am a big fan of college students going away to college, going abroad or the Disney College Program. At some point they need to start to think independently.

    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Plus, marriage is/can be a dicey enough thing as it is.
    Startin' out in it at 18-ish or so...the statistics don't lie on this one...your odds just aren't nearly as good.
    I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.

    Yea, they'll always be OUR kiddos but they also need to be THIER own person as soon as reasonably possible.
    Although DS will probably always be a slightly different issue, I don't wanna' leave this earth not having done as good a job as I could have to make them independent and contributors to society as opposed to a detriment to it.

    I was there for the Grand Opening. It was fun. Disney had so much going on that week and the characters were everywhere.

    Vintage Walt Disney World: Disney’s Port Orleans – Riverside Resort Marks 20 Years
    Posted: 02 Feb 2012 06:00 AM PST
    Today marks the 20th anniversary of the grand opening of Disney’s Port Orleans – Riverside Resort. Nestled along the Sassagoula River, this Disney Resort hotel was inspired by picturesque Louisiana and has 2,048 guest rooms, which are split up into two separate areas within the resort – Alligator Bayou and Magnolia Bend.

    The resort’s main building, the Sassagoula Steamboat Company, where you will find guest check-in, Boatwright’s Dining Hall and River Mill Food Court was still under construction back in August 1991.

    Later this year, guests will be able to stay like a Disney princess when the Royal Guest Rooms open, adding even more magic to a resort already known for its Southern hospitality.

    Thanks. A rare moment. Glad it gave ya' a giggle.
    I was just thinkin' about the classic reference to the demise of the buggy whip business at the advent of the automobile.

    It is a lot of planning, costumes, rehearsals, sets. That is why our district pays them as they do coaches.
