Welcome to

Pins for Cures Page

The only place you can get a LY/MI and pins, say thanks to some goofy trip report authors and at the same time help out two great efforts to help others. All the profits form pin sales will be given, equally, to:

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and

and Muscular Dystrophy Association.



Trip Reports at the Lodge







Welcome to:



I am your host Alistair Tough Cookie. I will be sitting in the chair, by the fire, in my robe (and cape!), smoking my pipe (No! I am not saying what is in it!), talking in a very urbane way so as to be your host. It is my great pleasure to once again provide an index to Robin's outstanding humor and her insight into the human condition. With Robin's permission*, I am proud to be making Robin's trip reports available here after they debut at You are welcome to join Robin the discussion of them there.

Our family had the pleasure of being in “The World” with Robin et al and I can honestly say the family is funnier, more pleasant and warmer in real life. Well real life may not be the right phrase because you find yourself asking “…really?!?” all the time.

Love Ya / Mean It and Pins

Tony, Delaney, Connor - Love Ya / Mean It

Robin & Del, Kimball & Bennet (aka Delswife & Scuba Steve, Zurgswife & Zurg) are proud to announce two unique limited edition trading pins to benefit research to help find cures for Juvenile Diabetes and Muscular Dystrophy. The pins have sold out. Existing orders are being filled but we can't take anymore pin orders, sorry. There still Love Ya /  Mean it Pins (there were more to start.) 

We love going to Disney World and writing funny trip reports, after all it is how we became friends.  We care just as much or more about helping these two great causes. All the profits from pin sales will go to JDRF and MDA because, well, Robin thought it would be a fun idea.

So if you enjoy the trip reports please chip in and buy a pin or two. Pins are $10.00 each including shipping and handling (North America.) Send an email to with how many pins you would like and we will get the pins rolling.

If you feel inspired click either MDA or JDRF's logo or both and make additional contributions.
