Recovering from a fast-paced-non-stop family trip to Disney World over the
weekend, I made it by the PO box on the way to work this morning and was
rewarded with the latest issue of QST.  Luckily the charge card bill that
also arrived only included Christmas Holiday expenses and not the Disney
trip; that will be next monthâ?¦ugh!
