As many people have been married to Kim Kardasian as have contracted Ebola in the U.S.

Neither the hubby nor myself are young, but we are young-at-heart and spent a week at WDW and Universal, just us, just last month. (And would think nothing of going again next month, except we're...

No. No change of plans. Cruising to the Caribbean in 3 weeks and have plans for Panama Canal next year. There's a whole lot of things that are more likely to "get" me than Ebola.

We use suitcases that are quite large (not the biggest they make, but large) and I don't think I've ever reached even 35 lbs per bag! Are you packing bricks? Canned goods? 50 lbs or more? Holy Moly!...
