re: It's almost garden time boys! - convertedtiger
[quote]Had to dig one to take a look. Have about 50 more. This was one I had been stealing potatoes from. [/quote] I did the same last week. I went 100% potatoes this season as I haven't had much time in the garden with all the rebuilding of the house. 20 Red LaSoda and 20 Yukon Gold that are ...

[quote]Frontline stopped working. I'm thinking fleas have gotten immune to that. [/quote] I'm thinking the same thing. The dog and cat both are on Frontline that we got from Costco. They both have been on it nonstop for three months and I found a couple of fleas on them yesterday. :banghead...

[quote]TiW can be purchased by those with an AP and is good for 20% off almost everywhere and includes alcohol.[/quote] Yeah, I was talking about TIW that is available for AP holders. Not getting 20% just for having an AP. We HOPE to be finished with the rebuild by June and will be going in...

re: Disney Released 2017 Free Dining Dates - convertedtiger
[quote] I would ALWAYS take the hotel discount over free dining.[/quote] As with everything, it all depends on your group. 4 Adults in a room who like to eat, the "free" dining plan can still be a value. However, I believe it is no longer a value to my group. When it came out, it was a very bi...

re: Galveston beaches? - convertedtiger
Galveston is too close to many river outlets to have clear water. I believe even the Mississippi River plays a part in the color of the water/clarity. I grew up on the Upper Texas coast. Great fishing but the brown beaches do not compare with the white sandy beaches in Alabama/Florida or around t...

re: Disney Released 2017 Free Dining Dates - convertedtiger
[quote]Don't care about the free dining I just want a promotion off my stay. 20%, etc [/quote] It is very rare for the resorts to not offer some type of discount for the fall. 20-25% is the norm for the moderates. You SHOULD be fine. I just checked Riverside. They are offering 20%(sorry m...

re: Are you supposed to tip the hotel housekeepers? - convertedtiger
[quote]I usually tip at least 20% if the service is good, but I'm not tipping just to tip because it's a nice gesture. The whole purpose of the tip is to reward someone for excellent service. Now everyone comes to expect a tip regardless of the service provided.[/quote] I just see my tipping the ...
