    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Brian, Trivia master Sir, when my post comes out of moderation, do you know what these are about?

    What are you Wearing ( DISNEY ) Today?

    OK, I know Disney is selling retro T-shirt for the attractions that have closed that fans were attached to. But if I am at WDW why should I be buying these. I am so missing it? Help.

    I got a big surprise from a guest today. We were busy and I had just handed the guest her order and I turned away fro a moment to take another order. The first guest tried to get my attention and I asked what she needed. She then handed me a rolled up bill as a tip, I said thank you and put it in my pocket without looking at it.

    I put it out of my mind as we were a little hectic. Well.... I got home and looked at the rolled up money..... and it was 2 $5 dollar bills! I think he order was just about the same amount.

    Fast-Food Strike Planned For Hundreds Of Cities, Protesters Want $15 Minimum Wage. Obama seeming to support $10 national minimum. Congress looking at $9.80.

    This should be interesting to see how it unfolds. My son was one of the highest paid college program students at WDW in 2007 and I think he earned $6.68/hr of which they deducted $85/week from his check for his 6 person, 3 bedroom apartment. (they deducted over $26,000 for that 3 bedroom apartment per year, utilities included.) It be great if those young students had a few more dollars a week to live on. This is why I deposited money in his checking account each week.
    I wanted him to eat.

    Well wishes peeps!

    What I learned today, the first house of Walt's in Chicago was only a few blocks from the house my DH grew up in and very near the church I was married in.

    New owners are going to restore the Walt's first house, covered in aluminum siding but old house still under there.
    They want to turn the 2 flat into a museum. His Dad moved to Chicago to work on Worlds Fair.

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    Sorry I have been M.I.A. I have been working on a final paper and then I had a final on tuesday which I got a 71% on and I needed 73% so I had to retake it today and guess what I got a 71%. So I did not pass and I have to retake it next semester. The worst part is my teacher said that I had extra points but I could not use them because I did not get a 73%... WHAT IS THE POINT OF GETTING EXTA POINTS IF YOU CAN ONLY USE THEM IF YOU ALREADY PASSED THE CLASS?

    Next week is final weeks... hopping that my next four go better.

    I'm so sorry. What subject is it that is giving you trouble? I wonder why the instructor bothered to add that comments about extra points. Salt in the wound at that point. Don't beat yourself up too much, unfortunately it does happen to a chunk of students here and there.

    Good luck with finals. Don't forget to sleep so info sinks in. It is a prove fact that for information to completely stick in the brain sleep is needed. Exercise to relieve stress. My DD has been running and elliptical. I'll send good karma, pixie dust and lots of prayers your way.

    My DD has 3 more classes next week, a reading day and then finals. Their final schedule doesn't end until December 20th. For whatever reason they went back later during August than they had in the past.

    Sad, Nelson Mandela passed.

    You can see the sadness in Pres. Clinton's face. and Pres. Obama had a nice thought today.

    All of us are living in a better world because of the life that Mandela lived.
