I'm such a sap

Something is seriously wrong with me because I choke up every time I listen to this Disney song. Walt's words in the beginning do me in and it just gets to me. But I've listen to it 5 times in a row so far and still get all a lump in my throat. I'm such a goober. From Millan.Net

(Case you're interested: it's originally from Brother Bear but became the theme song for the 50th celebration)

I'm so upset and FURIOUS because of

If you've been on my blog & seen my Disney trips, you know I do a webcam. I've been doing it for years using Ustream.  I went to download the videos from some trips to make DVDs.

They deleted all my videos! YEARS of them!!

They made a decision that Basic accounts don't get to keep their videos longer for 30 days; you have to upgrade storage for $20/month or go Premium for $100/month to $1,000/month!

Before you yell at me: YES, they have the absolute right to do this change. BUT! THEY SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME! WARN ME BEFORE YOU DELETE MY VIDEOS!

I would have considered the $20/month. Not now. Now I'm looking for another webcam streaming provider with good customer service ratings and clear policies. I'm fine with downloading my videos by a certain deadline, just let me know before you delete them!

Long Beach Island

I went to LBI with my sisters Gerry and Cathi a little bit ago. What a great time! We saw family favorites from when we went every summer growing up and when my mom was still alive.  I climbed to the top of Barnegat Light House and got a certificate. :)

Cathi and Gerry had never seen the family bench dedicated to my Nana, Mom, and Aunt DeeDee, so that was first thing we did.

We had a nice dinner at a place in Bay Village that looked over the bay. I got a present from Gerry: a print that I can't wait to hang up. We went from one end of the island to the other, ending with us sitting on a bench looking at the stars and the ocean before we left for home.

Just a beautiful day.
