    They are really out pacing inflation. POR, then Dixie opened 20 years ago at $89 for regular season and if you booked a package you received a free breakfast TS each day, use of bikes and some of the little boats, and a perk per person, like a round of golf, mini golf etc.

    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.

    The morning show is the only one that I really like. Mid-Day, evening and late are good but not light like the morning news is.

    And listening to how scripted the reality show really is, step by step you wonder if these people are really pieces of work or just generally stupid to go along with it for their moment of fame.

    I wasn't loving the keyboard on DH's ipad, it was missing critical punctuation keys and the site here had a grey bar across the response box, I couldn't see what I was typing. BUT, overall it has great protability and fairly easy use.

    All of the parents here have them, love them. I like my laptop, but I have zero need to connect in my car, or at a restaurant like many of them do.

    Lol, apparently, the beach police. Have a van. And they drive up and down the strip, picking up the new arresties. So far, biggest arrests for underage drinking, one shooting, and various drug or traffic. Crimess. S flashing or enticing to flash gets a trip to the greybar inn.


    Anyone heard from Amanda on the epic road trip yet?
    And the reason why the college students stopped going to Florida for Spring Break? The rise in the drinking age. Even after Disney, college students packed the hotels with beaches for 5 or 6 weeks, bars etc., restaurants etc. made a lot of money off them. Now they go to the islands or Mexico. Our law makers certainly know how to tank our own economy.

    With the current drinking age college students cannot enter a bar til their Junior Year, some with later birthdays, their senior year. That is a lot of vacation revenue we pushed to other countries.

    Well, Panama City beach is still really lax about a lot of it and they stay really, REALLY full for the entire 9 weeks of SPring Break. What gets a trip to jail is underage kids from the surrounding states (MS, AL, FL,GA) coming to party, sitting in the back of a pickup with open containers and hanging all out of the vehicle. Safety first, mostly they are fairly relaxed, but those blatantly causing issues get snapped. In this case, the arrests have been around 300-ish, including the shooter, and the ones doing the incredibly dangerous balcony diving-which no hoel puts up with, and the open containers/underage drinkers in traffic on the strip.

    That one, three mile strip, is where the cruising happens and that is where they get the drinkers who cause problems. It can take 2 hours to drive one way on the strip. So when a car full decide to stop, pass some beers around and try to hit up a car full of gals-that is when they get a ticket or a trip to jail. If they behave in traffic, no problem.

    Keyboard on the IPad or an external wireless?
