    This December the weather in Florida was quite bizarre. One day we had the hot weather for swimming then the next day it was beyond cold. I have never felt cold like it, had to buy hat and gloves and at one point was so cold I actually said "Is this real or that fake snow?" when we were at the Osbourne lights, because it was sooooooo cold I wasn't even sure anymore. Then about three days later I was back in my swim cossie. Bizarre totally bizarre.

    Would never ever go again at Christmas time because of the weather thing, but so glad we did get to go once to see all the decorations and the Christmas Castle, that was totally awesome. Wouldn't have missed it for the world. But never again... nope.

    Mick it certainly sounds like you have raised a wonderful daughter and now she is trying to return the favor. She sounds like she is an excellent business woman able to overcome the odds in today's economy and now she wants to return some of that success to her loving Dad.

    thats what im worried about, is the cold, it was absolutely freezing on some days when we ewnt oct08 and the next hot as you like, never had cold weather in oct before. i would love to go just once for the same reason you went then, even if it was just the once :)

    im stunned at how well she is doing john, while others are struggling shes growing fast. and to say im suprised at what a great business brain she has, seeing as she was a dollydaydream when she was younger os beyond my expections
