    I am a casual Marlins fan and that game was interminable. I listened on the radio for half and watched the rest on TV. I hate pitching duels. On the bright side our stadium has air conditioning.

    I took and passed the test to be on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" today. They were here in Broward County today. I'll know in three weeks if I get picked to be on the show.

    FYI-From the Disney Parks Blog

    Looking for a Sign – New Vintage Signage Program Arrives at Disney Parks

    posted on July 18th, 2013 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager


    I recently spent a few days at Disneyland Resort taking pictures of signs. I loved the assignment because it wasn’t a far cry from what I like to do in my spare time (I’ve spent countless hours in search of great roadside signage from the past). At Disney Parks, there are plenty of awesome signs that advertise attractions, food and beverage locations, merchandise stops and more. A few months ago, the arts and collectibles team introduced a new art program inspired by these signs. The program has been so popular that I was never able to capture images in locations until this past week. I caught up with senior merchandiser David Whitaker to learn more.

    “The sign program has been wildly popular with guests,” exclaimed David. “We wanted to offer oversized replicas of Disney Parks’ signs printed on wood-like material or metal. This program takes its cue from a recent marketplace trend of reproducing vintage signage. Fortunately, we had plenty of options for us at Disney Parks. The fun part was selecting the most iconic signs for this first program.”
    David worked with Walt Disney Imagineering and Disney Design Group to create these oversized replica signs. In some cases, they reproduced the sign almost exactly how it looks at Disney Parks (see my favorite – Aloha Isle Refreshments – for a great example). In the case of the sign for Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, the art team combined elements to create the final sign.

    “We took the attraction sign and combined it with shields found both on the Adventureland bridge in Magic Kingdom Park in Florida and on the attraction building in Disneyland park in California,” explained David. “I thought the addition of the shields made the sign more aesthetically pleasing.”

    The signs are currently offered at the Art of Disney location in Downtown Disney Marketplace and Animation Gallery at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. There are also two Disney•Pixar’s “Cars“-inspired signs found at select locations in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure park. Finally, you may also find the Gaston’s Tavern sign inNew Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park.
    David said they intend to have some of these signs offered at the Disneyland Resort at a future date. There are, however, no immediate plans to carry them via the Disney Parks online store.
    Now all I need is a replica Dole Whip machine and I’m all set!

    Keep jogging 2 miles at any speed and you'll be 45# lighter in no time, you are young. Then again, who wants to run in the heat and humidity we've had lately. I'd have to do the January marathon in Disney. I hate running though.

    I rent a storage locker down at her school every summer, did that with my sons university before that. This Momma is happy for one more year and done. Amen. We have two kids, how the heck large families save for college is beyond me. Even with scholarships it is still a boatload of money and the overlapping years with 2 in college was downright painful.

    Re: the "royal" baby; I can barely understand why anyone in England would care...the rest of the world swooning over it makes no sense to me at all. Does it have something to do with women who wanted to be princesses when they were little girls? The whole concept of royalty sickens me.

    The storage locker is a good idea.

    I am not sure how big families save for college. My mom and dad had the hardest time with me and my brother and my area is really stiff about giving out scholarships. My brother did not get any (from different organizations around town) and I got one (it is 500 dollars which is nice but I had to take a music class to get it.) Then I am getting about 1200 for getting over a 21 on my ACT from Kent and 150 dollar one for being in band. In the scope of my 2 years there at 24000 a year is nothing, then once I go to UCF, it is going to be about 32000. Like my friend she has 5 younger siblings and I have no idea how they are going to get 5 kids through college.


    Then I have a friend who sits and complains to me about how her college is 4000 a semester (she is driving to classes and going to a branch of the college)
