Barnes and Noble Visit

Barnes and Nobles Visit

So yesterday, June 19, 2013 I went to the local Barnes and Nobles that has the "used" books section. They have a few shelves dedicated to books that have been autographed by authors who had signings at the store. So I was browsing and found this beauty:



I remember when I went to the Mike Wolfe (from American Pickers) signing that I saw the poster of Ridley Pearson on the wall that was signed. How I wished that I could get a signed book from him. I guess that wish came true.



Even though I didn't get the autograph in person I am glad I found the book, especially for only $10.00. I also got Henry Winkler's book he wrote after I saw him talk. I bought that book in the book store at the college after I saw him because I wasn't able to stay afterwards. I collect autographs and looked online to compare autographs. It matches so I'm happy.

Winnie The Pooh

Winnie The Pooh
Salt and Pepper Shaker



So I went to the Good Will store on Saturday, a day after their window sale. Earlier last week I walked by the window and saw a cute Winnie the Pooh tea-pot which was not there yesterday. But I did find this cute set of Salt and Pepper Shaker.


At first I only found pooh and thought the set was not complete but then looked again before I got on line for check out. I spotted the blue balloon, which at first I didn't think it went but then put two and two together and Wah-la... lol.

Disney World Planning Video. My Opinions.

My Review/Opinion(s)
about
Disney's FREE Trip Planning DVD.

I remember back in 2005 when I received my very first FREE Disney World Trip Planning DVD. I sat down with my parents and watched it. We all enjoyed it, and laughed a few times. That FREE dvd has changed dramatically over the years. 

As you can see you have not one but 4 travel guides as different kind of people, the thrill junky, the easy going guy, and two other guides who just enjoy their trip.
But now, the DVD has changed. It is similar to a history channel special where guests and cast members talk about how much fun they have and how some things work. I took a class in tv production in college and my professor said no one wants to see a talking head...which is true.

But the way Disney has it, makes you not want to watch the tape because when I did get the new version, I watched it and turned it off 5 minutes into it. I didn't get that special feeling that Disney has. I know your not there but whose going to book a trip with their hard earned cash when watching that new version? If I never been to Disney before I wouldn't spend two minutes watching that DVD. I'm trying not to be harsh but hey, people want to see people enjoying Disney. Not people "talking" about Disney..


I think it is time that Disney took a look back on something and redo their DVD.
what are your opinions of the current trip DVD?

Monday Maddness


Monday MadnessI call this entry, "Monday Madness." because Monday's Good Wills have everything 25% along with their usual 50% Color tag. Today I decided to go to the two Good Will stores that are further away and found a few great Items. Today one of the workers was holding a Disneyland Pop Up Photo Album when I first stepped in. Awesome. 



He is a college of the pages inside. I will probably keep this, and use it for my first Disneyland Trip pictures...if I ever get there. lol.



I found a few other Disney things, such as Thumper PVC and a Bank Tin...


That was all at ONE Good Will. I went to the second Good will and honestly thought I was going to go home empty handed. But when I first don't see anything I walk around a second time to see if I missed anything and when I did I noticed a Thermo Serve cup from the 70's. It was behind a whole bunch of items.


So that's it for today.
By the way, I now have Pinterest board for Disney Findings, so  I would have to keep emailing myself the pictures to put in this blog. check me out at:
