Thinking International

Orlando has got to be right up there in the list of cities that host a lot of international travelers. For years, Europeans would flock to Miami, but I wonder if that is true in today’s world? Maybe it depends upon whether you are bringing your children with you on holiday, or if you are looking for more adult diversions.

Orlando is SOO family friendly. I can’t think of anyplace else in the United States that I would like to bring kids of any age and spend a week away from home and all the troubles that go along with owning a home and raising children.

In the hotel lobby, I waited at the elevator with a young Indonesian family. The kids were totally exhausted, but still very happy to be here. I’m so impressed with the international scope of this city and a very big part of it is thanks to Walt Disney. I have watched a few documentaries about Walt Disney and he was a fascinating man with a fascinating plan.

With Flores (Indonesia)on my mind, I surfed a couple of sites tonight and came across a site to learn more about that part of the world. I also found how to get to flores indonesia and I have made up my mind that before I leave this world I want to take a trip and explore Flores and its natural wonders that sound so very enticing to me right now. It will have to take place after all the kids have grown and I will have so much more time on my hands that I feel traveling will be occupying a lot more of my time.

Scrubs for My Costume This Year

October means Halloween and Halloween means I need a costume. We always have a Halloween party at work and employees are supposed to not only wear a costume and makeup, but we are supposed to decorate our offices or cubicles and then everyone votes on the best decorations and the best costumes for both prizes and bragging rights.

Last year I decided to wear blue scrubs, latex gloves, and painted fake blood down my shirt and running down my arms. My props were a rubber Frankenstein doll laid out on an operating table, some surgical instruments and a strobe light. I was, of course, Dr. Frankenstein. It got a lot of laughs and I won second place for the office decor.

My idea for this year is to get another pair of cheap hospital scrubs and do something similar but different. I am going to get a blonde wig to wear under the surgical cap and a large rubber fake brain. Then I’m going to use light grey and black makeup to make me look like a zombie. I’m going to walk around like a zombie and offer people my brain, telling them that since I’m a blonde now that I don’t need it. LOL

Electronic Drums

I’m sorry but I really have never heard of electronic drums until I went online at www.musiciansfriend and found some to check out. When the heck did electronic drums come out? Where was I when this happened.? Not that I have a vast knowledge of musical instruments, but I have had a love affair with drums all my life.

I really wish that I had taken drum lessons as a kid. I did take piano lessons for two summers but gave up on that and was not happy with my parents when they told me that I couldn’t change from piano to the drums. I still hold a resentment about that but have kept it to myself all these years.

Thomas the Train

What is it about the Thomas the Train movies that grabs the attention of kids everywhere? They are nothing more than a man reading a story book out loud, like any parent reads a bedtime story. And they are in British words and phrases, easy enough for an American to understand, but obviously different from what the kids here are used to hearing.

My grandson absolutely loves anything that has to do with Thomas the Train. I can send him any present – a book, a new train, a sticker book – that has Thomas on it and he loves it. I even found a website for him to play Thomas games and watch short Thomas the Train videos on the internet when he comes for a visit.

Love My Gaming And My Music

Since I was a young child, I have always enjoyed playing games on some sort of gaming device, whether it is an Atari, a Nintendo, a Super Nintendo, a Sega Genesis, a Playstation, or even an Xbox. My all time favorite gaming system would have to be the Playstation 3, it is by far the best. It has so many awesome features, and not to mention a wide selection of games to play on or offline. I had no idea I would be using it as much as I do, or I would have bought it as soon as it came out.

I use it to not only play video games, but to watch Blue Ray movies, check my Facebook, have video chats with friends and family, download music, watch Netflix and so much more. I have recently located a great woodwind brasswind retail store that I have written a bit about on Facebook as well. I can’t imagine life without Facebook.

I honestly can not wait to see what Sony has in-store for the upcoming Playstation 4. What can I say other then I love my gaming! And thank the good lord for all the various types music (old and new) that we have access to with just a few short key strokes!
