    2. Don't go with Early Bird and try for family boarding. Depending upon how old your 8 year old looks, you may not have any issues. That's right about the age that it could go either way. Some of it depends on the Ops Agent and whether they're strict on enforcing the limit. The official age is 6, but we've not had any issues with our youngest, despite being over 6. She is small and wouldn't do well by herself yet. If you're flying out of Orlando in the summer, you're more likely to get agents that enforce it since nearly everyone on those flights are Disney folks with kids. The family boarding is right after the "A" group.
    How does it determine the early bird order? 1st
    Person to buy so on and so forth?

    Outside of the answer or attempt at an answer, really glad to see this goal set. Though I suspect come fall it will be something that gets cuts if the Conservatives get in.

I kid with him about it, but I am also really serious, I don't think he understands what would happen to me and Arrow if something were to ever happen to him.

    Maybe he will see this post and finally consider doing it.
    I used to joke that I didn't want to have so much coverage that it [further] incentivized my wife to knock me off, but we always have had coverage.

    It can happen anytime, anywhere. Two Saturdays ago, two 20-somethings visiting from NYC were sitting at a traffic light at 3 pm on the route I travel every day to work when they were killed by a drunk driver who couldn't negotiate a gentle curve, left the road, and wiped them out.

    I use the life insurance option from my employer, but I also have my own coverage. There have been times when I was unemployed and I could have been uninsured.

    Responsible care is always a good thing, but wasteful, inconsiderate slobs will behave the same way with paper, cardboard, or anything else. Not to mention that plastics often have a lower energy budget and environmental footprint than the materials proposed to replace them. Certain kinds of paper goods, for example, may degrade more quickly than some plastics above ground, but nothing degrades in a landfill.

    I have been having pain in one hand. At the doctor and he says that he will give me a shot and I need to rest it for two weeks. He then starts the questionnaire and one question is if I have any feelings of depression... Well, not until you told me to take two weeks away from golf!

    I have vacation July 1 and am going to try and play some in Vegas. I am glad my wife talked me into going today! He said I should be great after this break.

    A couple weeks back, I found out my Dad was going to be playing golf for the first time since his quad-bypass surgery last year. I was pumped. He made it 4 holes and could barely walk back to the cart. I was concerned, a little scared, and sympathetic to what he was struggling through. I found out he hadn't been doing all of his PT. He was skipping the walking and lower body stuff because it was hard. He had gotten so weak that he couldn't even go for a short walk.

    Yesterday, he called and said he was going to try again. Yesterday, he made it through the entire 9 holes and seemed to have enough energy to spare at the end. Turns out, he used the first round struggles as motivation to keep up on his PT. Small victories. He was disappointed in how he played. I told him I was just happy to have him back.
