Poor baby - no free wine and food. The downpour may still happen as it's April but you'll be with us. Duluth got snow last night.
I'll contact the condo people this morning to see if we can get what we want. Running a bit late at the moment due to wind/storms last night. Took 2.5 hours to get a stable connection. Finally straightened up about 8am. I'll call them by phone to save time (if they list a phone number...
Plus, you need to download the G+ 'hang out' app to be part of the 'hang out' thing. I did it yesterday on the Pro. Kris' Dell can't download it because it doesn't fulfill the requirements. (It's old as I bought it used 6 years ago when I did my real estate stuff.)
I think we have a plan coming together that will be fun and still simple.
For those of you on Google+ and have (at least) Peter, Katie, Beerman and me in a circle somewhere, there will be a hang-out on Sunday (April 22) from 3:00-4:30 CDT. From US to Europe to Asia, please join in. The hang-out option just accepts 10 people at a time but... Peter, Katie, Kris and I don't want to stare at our computer screens when we're sitting across from each other already. We'll be using 2 computers to avoid echoing. (Kris' computer is already out of the picture.) We'll be making funny facing and (hopefully) recording it for those who want view it later. (I know we'll be bringing 2 cameras too.)
Again, you will have to be part of G+, have us in your circles and download the 'hang out' app. (Now to figure out the 'effects' app so we can all look like pirates...)
Katie - sending the condo confirmation info. Also just e-mailed the owner about obtaining the keys.
Holly - we have a room available for you if you get lucky on flights. If not - can you do the G+ thing?
Peter - are you booked for lodging yet?
Just booked accommodation Apparently all my emails were in her junk folder.. grr
I'll post a separate thread about the hangout as well.

OK, we're here......where the hell are the rest of you????????
Kidding, sort of.......dinner at Greek Islands in45 minutes, be there or be square. We'll let you know what we had.
It's now over and dinner at Greek Islands was great. The chicken challenge dinner at the condo on Sunday night was even better! Katie, breakfast Monday morning was perfect! Thank you so much for everything. Now you know how to make the perfect mimosa.
We had Peter, Janelle, Miles, May, Katie, Kris and me in person. We had Tina, Sarah and Neal for the G+ hang-out. It may have been a small group but it was sooooo much fun!!!!! Well, I hope everyone had as much fun as I did...
Peter (and company), thank you for coming to Chicago! Enjoy the rest of your stay!
