[ - ] I know it's late but I'll take a shot. DH and I want to go someplace warm in February-ish. We don't have a huge budget and the main goal is to relax. We're not big beach people. For a host of reasons we need to bring our two very small DCs with us. Any suggestions? I am thinking about just bumming around one of the upper Keys in FL. Tempted to do the French Quarter for three days but I don't know if it will be warm and I want to avoid Mardi Gras. My other thought was a 5-day cruise but I can't find anything good out of the NY area and I don't feel like flying to FL just to get on a ship. Any other thoughts for something easy but fun and WARM? TY! 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

West Coast of FL. Although you're not beach people, the beaches there are amazing. Keys are nice, but the beaches aren't that spectacular. Not sure how they fared from hurricanes. [ Reply | More ]

Many times we went to Anna Maria Island which is off of Bradenton. It's a little more rustic--not too many big hotels on there. We used time share points and stayed in apartment style units. They are more spacious and have bedrooms for kids and us. Not that many restaurants there though. Sarasota is nice too. [ Reply | More ]

This is a great idea with kids. There’s a resort on captiva island that isn’t too pricey and will have everything you need—a ton to do in addition to beautiful beaches. I think it’s called south seas. It’s huge. [ Reply | More ]

Arizona somewhere? It'll be warm. Find a resort and park there. Although with 2 small DC, I'd find some places that have kids clubs. How about Four Seasons Orlando? You won't be doing the parks, but at least it'll be very family friendly. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] mac savvy moms: finally buying one for Christmas, my 8 year old pc is over the hill and this will be my gift. The problem is I don't know much about the difference between the mac pro and the mac book air for example. I will need this mac to launch my website/small business and then basically for the every day things. If I get the 13 inch one will it be too small? Is the air better than the pro or vice versa? If anyone here can give me advice I would really appreciate it! 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I am now a Director. I have previously worked for good bosses and bad bosses, good companies and bad companies. What I have learned through observation is that ruling inflexibly and by fear is a decent way to keep sub-par employees in line (at least for a while) but it sends good employees running for the hills. My instinct has always been to be kind and give the benefit of the doubt and coincidentally I have found that to be good business practice. I really can't understand how so many bosses get it so wrong. [ Reply | More ]
