New This Week
- If you're considering coming to the Friends for Life: 2005 annual CWD conference this summer, now is the time to make your hotel reservations. Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, where we are holding this summer's conference, is sold out for regular rooms (but not those in CWD's room block) for some of the nights our conference is there -- specifically, the weekend of July 8. While we have quite a few rooms in our room block, they are already 50% reserved and will go quickly since we're in the new year. If you reserve your room and find you can't attend, you can always cancel and get your deposit back as long as you cancel 72 hours out from the reservation. To reserve your room, you must call the Disney conference reservations line at 407-939-1020.

- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
The other night we went to Popeye's for dinner. My 11 year-old daughter with diabetes went to the soda machine to get a drink and started getting some Fanta Fruit Punch. I asked her why she was getting that, because she knows it has sugar. She looked at me and said "Mom, it says right here that is non-carbonated." I didn't understand what she was thinking at first, but then I saw it, "non-CARB-inated." Obviously a child with diabetes didn't invent that word!
