Skilled at What?

So I was telling coworkers that you now can endorse your connections’ skills on LinkedIn. Here’s a lesson to choose your skills wisely and to be careful of what you endorse.

Pass the Gravy

I know by next year it won't be as funny, but maybe it will. It still cracks me up. Happy Thanksgiving!

Pilgrim Mickey

It's the day before Thanksgiving, and while I'm buried with work, I'm thankful to have work. The Disney Parks Blog has a cute picture of Mickey on it today. Check it out!

The Magic of Fantasyland

I completely forgot to call The Disney Gallery on the day of the artist event, which was November 10th, but I just hung up the phone after placing my order for what they had left. While it's not signed by the artist, I love the colors and design of this piece.

Below you will see what I ordered. It's Disneyland Resort's Matterhorn Bobsleds, with artwork by Jeff Granito. For more information, head on over to the Disney Parks Blog. Be sure to check out comments #5 and #12 if you do read the blog to see posts by yours truly.

My litho should arrive in a couple of weeks!  Woo hoo!

Willkommen in Chicago

I always get a warm welcome when visiting Chicago. In fact, they make sure to greet me in many languages! 

Along Michigan Avenue, there are banners which make me smile, for obvious reasons, and remind me why I've chosen to stick around tonight to see the festivities.

Walking from the Intercontinental Hotel on Michigan Avenue to the Hyatt Regency Chicago on Wacker Drive this morning, I stopped to snap a picture to send to Mom and Dad of me along the Chicago River. Glad today is a short(er) work day!

It's Got to be Disney

Well, I'm back in Chicago, and every year around this time, I go home immediately when the conference is over. And every year, I miss the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival, hosted by Mickey, Minnie and the gang. This year, I decided to stick around to see it. Looks like some of the businesses are ready to capitalize on some residual business.

Read more about the The Magnificent Mile Lights Festival here.

Get Out and Vote!

It's that time again, and hopefully you've done your homework, America. No matter if you think voting is a privilege or a right, just go out and do it!

For whom am I voting? Well, it should be obvious.

I need this image for my Microsoft Lync image. Hope it works!

Today's my birthday, and while I'm not one to celebrate, I did have a great weekend. After church, I went to the Mall of America, and The Disney Store made me feel like a kid again with their special way of helping me celebrate!

And I decided to take the plunge and purchase something I've been eyeing for a while. Some may think it's not age-appropriate, but since when have I let that stop me???

Someday I'll Be a Jedi!

So many images are coming out because of the Disney-Lucasfilm acquisition.  I just found this one on Twitter and it made me laugh.
