Low key on an exciting trip

Low key on an exciting trip.

Why?

These blogs are personal.

And yet while personal, they are packed with subtle and sometimes obvious Disney business insights.

These blogs are also public.

And therein lies the low key approach. What we did as a Family the past three days has been a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Will this change in the future? Maybe. Maybe not. But for right now, from our 10th-floor hotel room window as the frigid darkness turns to dawn, low key seems like the right key.

The eyes have it

The eyes have it. Meaning yesterday i had a local eye exam within walking distance from home.

Like many other services in which i had to drive 30 minutes to, i’ve now moved them all closer, except the Allergist (the closest is still 30 mins away).

When you love your eye doctor (or any provider) but you want to change your lifestyle (like walk instead of drive to appointments), you have to embrace “different”.

Also asked Jody Maberry to experiment with a Disney-like “i” in Life, on the “If Disney Ran Your Life” Podcast art. “Have fun with it, don’t cross any legal lines, and let’s just see what his designer comes back with.”

The “i’s” have it?

Maybe.

They hit it off.

 

After the 5k, we returned home and began our Saturday routine.

My second floor home office faces East.

At my desk finishing loose ends from a busy travel week, i noticed Joann and her puppy where planting Spring flowers, so i gathered my Family to walk across the street to meet the new Bulldog puppy.

Rudy (two years old) the Irish Setter and our neighborhood wanderer, stopped by as well.

It was a refreshing visit for everyone.

Finally, after 25 years

Land near Walt Disney World
1974 ariel view.

 

Here is a link to a story detailing the new businesses coming to the shopping center nearby.

Businesses are:

  • Westside Shoppes Tenants
  • Adena Farms Grille & Market
  • AT&T
  • Cell Phone repair
  • Creative Soles Dance
  • Della’s Trattoria Italiana
  • Dunkin’ Donuts
  • Flippers Pizzeria
  • Gators Dockside
  • Goodwill
  • Great Clips
  • Heartland Dental
  • Jeremiah’s Italian Ice
  • Karate School
  • Keke’s Breakfast
  • Lagree Fitness
  • Luxury Nails
  • Philly Connection
  • Porte Noire
  • Quickly Cafe
  • Tijuana Flats
  • The UPS Store
  • Toasted
  • Wendy’s
  • Wesmere Dry Cleaner

This is phase 2. Five years ago we got a grocery store and a few other nice things. Prior to this complex, we had to drive 10 miles in any direction to reach the closest anything.

The motivation for living like this for so long?

Being close enough to watch Magic Kingdom fireworks and hear the steam train whistle.

No harm, no foul

Lehigh Valley Economic Development
Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce is our Country’s 2nd largest, yet competes with Lehigh Valley Economic Development. 

 

No harm, no foul tonight.

Some go solely to compare.

Others go to genuinely reconnect.

Although Facebook, FaceTime, texting and Skype have made reunions less necessary, there’s something about a 40th High School reunion.

Looking forward to not knowing anyone and still having the time of my life.

No harm, no foul, right?

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
