Disney lowers prices!

Not back to posting regularly yet but wanted to share with you the news that Disney has lowered their price points on some pin levels by $1.  More indication that someone in merchandise is finally realizing they are overpricing stuff.

Personal Update

Hi gang,
You may have noticed that my posting has definitely slowed down lately.  Part of that is I just haven't been finding a whole lot I found interesting in newly released Disney stuff but I also haven't had much time to look.  I lost my job a few months ago and no longer work on Disney property.  Instead of going the woe is me route, I decided it was high time I went into business for myself.  Things are progressing well.  I have a few clients and they have all been very happy with me.  Unfortunately that isn't yet enough to pay the bills.  The main project I am involved in is called Boomtown Wacky Warehouse and it is planned to open the 2nd week of October.  For those of you familiar with the area, it will be located on HWY 192, next to Old Town, in front of Fun Spot and just down the road from Walt Disney World.  I have been heavily involved in the planning and will be helping run the place.  Boomtown Wacky Warehouse is a family amusement center where you play games, win tickets and trade the tickets for prizes but it will be unlike any other game room you have ever seen.  I've known the owner for many years and he is a strong believer in letting people have a fair chance to win and having prizes that are worth winning.  Much like the Disney parks of old, this isn't a place just for kids but for the young at heart.
It is crunch time tight now and we are rushing to get things done before the opening so I won't have much time at all for blogging.  If I do blog it will probably be to plug Boomtown.  The first phase includes our Wacky Warehouse and the Boomtown Family Diner.  If you are in the area, I hope you will stop by and say hello.

Chip n Dale Rescue Rangers Returns

This December, Chip n Dale Rescue Rangers returns with an ongoing comic book series.  If this is as good as the new Darkwing Duck title (same writer) it will be great!  "Some times, some crimes, go slipping through the cracks..."

This Jack-O-Lantern is actually a Jack in the Box or is that a Mickey in the Box?
