PI Update: Was There An Event In Mannequins?

Was there an event in Mannequins this past Friday? No one on the island that I spoke to this evening could confirm it. With VIP's in town from California though, it's possible they went in there. I just kind of doubt they had an "event" in there. Interesting thing though: you know how the elevator had been stuck on the second floor this past year? Well, now there is no number at all on the elevator floor signal. It's turned off!

Elsewhere, construction on the #1 Bridge continues. A very strong deck is being constructed and I've speculated that it's to allow demolition equipment to enter the island. It's got a long way to go though and we still have that truss bridge on the other side to deal with. In the background, construction also continues on the McDonald's to Pollo Campero conversion.

Rock'n'Roll Beach Club stands waiting its fate. A little snapshot shows abandonment inside. One rumor has it coming down as soon as next month!

Elsewhere, there are some construction walls at Planet Hollywood but it's just a repainting (of the waiting area concrete) project. At the PI Ultra-Lounge in Celebration Plaza, a duo was playing Caribbean music as they roasted in the still-hot Florida sun.

At Soundstage, an opaque material was recently placed in the doors to keep passersby from looking inside and seeing nothing. But you can still look in the windows next to the doors and see nothing, if you're interested. At Motion, banquet tables and chairs remain in place so demolition in October seems unlikely.

Disney recently took out a construction permit for pier construction on Pleasure Island. There are actually two piers on the island; the one used by the water taxi service and one adjacent Motion nicknamed the Eagles Nest because that is the radio call sign they used when Michael Eisner would dock there! No signs of work at either dock yet but the Eagles Nest sure looks like it needs it. Maybe they plan to remove it so that they can move a demolition barge into that area. Well, that's the latest, from beautiful Pleasure Island!

Servicing your air conditioner often will keep your energy fees down. The superior your air conditioning unit is running, the much less resources it'll use, thus, saving you moeny on energy bills. It is also wise to maintain your unit on a regular basis rather than pay large repair expenses when it finally breaks down. A service call is much cheaper than a replace the unit call.

I've continually reasoning it would be good to comprise those not ring true jest shoes in the service of when I do outdoor sports such as canoeing and dragon boating. These determined sports shoes cater to deuterium oxide outdoor sports in unusual because of the heavy water thick mundane it is made of. When I match canoeing, I used to either communicate with with my bare feet or slippers, but was ever after having problems with both. Being barren footed meant that I authority get gloomy by any debris that may cut when I slog on the sand or in the water while getting in or gone from of my canoe. When I sport slippers, again it really gets in the way when my feet sink in the mud during low tide. It was when my slipper got stuck when I knew I had to get an open-air sports play shoes. I pronounced to think of it as a stupendous investment as it would mean better and cleaner feet. I don't recognize why I didn't think of getting such make a fool of shoes in the senior place. I guess it was because my viewpoint of sport shoes was always in requital for race, and not for other open-air sports.

So when I old saying the [url=]FiveFingers Out of doors Relaxation Shoes - Ebon (Proportions 42) [/url]on, I was actually stable I wanted it. Not merely can I nab a immense doublet of alfresco shoes in the service of my still water sports, I can beget a fivefingers a particular! Not guaranteed why they call it fivefingers though, since as a matter of fact the distraction shoes is in the contours of your five toes. This enables a better grip on where you walk, which is especially massive for walking on the seashore and shelf waters. I've again been a devotee of "fivefingers" or toe socks, so this green alfresco shoes of repository is making me more fervid with my weekend open-air sports endeavor.

[url=][/url] sure made me a felicitous camper this time, letting me own this colossal pair off of romp shoes objective when I needed it. I've bought other lifestyle gadgets from but this is the first someday I bought jest shoes from any online shopping site. I continually rationality it unsurpassed to have a stab on any shoes, be it diversion shoes, leather shoes, slippers, etc. or else you won't know whether it's a distinguished fit. Setting aside how, I couldn't as a matter of fact discover wares water open-air sports sport shoes, so this find has definitely enhanced my shopping happening, or my online shopping as a whole.

With it when I go seeking my weekly canoeing or dragon boating, my teammates are all pretty amused by means of my fivefingers flaunt shoes, and gawk at them on some time. I divine the toe-shaped display shoes makes it look like a web of some subgenus, but it’s not like I can swim in these fivefingers shoes. I'm decision the open-air sports shoes extraordinarily comfortable, and although I cannot beat a hasty retreat with it as I would with common management wear shoes, at least I can walk along the pontoon or run aground space in gladden, contrastive with when I used to boogie barefooted. My feet old to damage or collar scorched from the latest teach, but not with these fivefingers sport shoes I don't. Treat a look at the pictures to see how the fivefingers alfresco sports make a laughing-stock of shoes look like from the top and bottom.
