Danny’s World: Disney World Prep and YouTube

Danny's iphone 439I have been watching a ton of YouTube videos about Disney tips and tricks in preparation for our trip in November.  There’s so much to consider when planning a Disney trip; even when you’ve been several times before.  I found a channel that I love (The Tim Tracker) and have binge watched it over the weekend.

Tim and his wife Jenn live in Orlando and chronicle their journeys throughout the parks. It seems that they visit the parks 3-4 times per week and investigate the different resorts, new foods, new events, changes and upcoming changes and much more.  I will admit that I am addicted to their channel.

We are staying at the Port Orleans Riverside resort this trip and I am using a simple tip that I believe will make our stay a bit more enjoyable.  I am using Amazon Prime and shipping all of our daily snacks, water, sunblock, ponchos, backpack and a few other items straight to the resort; our packages will be there waiting on us upon our arrival.

Another trick I’ve learned is to book breakfast in the resorts before the parks open which allows us to eat and then venture in before any crowds and lines develop.  This will be especially important at Magic Kingdom where certain rides develop long lines.

I’ll be curious to read how many people who follow my blog enjoy Disney.  Some can take it or leave it, but we think it is the most magical place on Earth!  Cheers folks!

I’m hooked on a blog I found a couple of months ago called WaitbutWhy.   It’s a blog for people who like science and geeky stuff and think about the same kinds of weird, random, shower-thought sort of things that I do.    Some of the stuff its author, Tim Urban, writes about will absolutely blow your mind, such as this incredible article about how to fit all 7.3 billion people on the planet into a building that would fit in a space smaller than Manhattan’s Central Park.  Yes, it can actually be done (but it would be terribly cruel!).

Some of his posts are hilarious because they’re so true and relatable.   In my last post I mentioned that bugs (ants, to be specific) can be beneficial to the environment because they help break down dead material, but let’s be honest here — Do any of us…

guys
this is going out to all of our readers. do you get our posts in the reader? so many are following but only a handful are interacting and i am wondering where everyone else is? i love engaging with our readers and chatting in the comments section and i love it when people like our posts it is a real confidence booster and gives us a real sense of joy and pride. I guess what I am asking is does the wordpress reader show our posts? do most of you follow via the reader or do you get emailed with the new posts when we post?
I know there is trouble with the reader a lot of times. I guess I am a little nervous that I have over 900 followers and a whole bunch never interact with me at all and I am wondering are they even reading?

Danny’s World: I Slept Better Last Night

img_1577

Last night I made sure I went to sleep a bit earlier and I actually slept well.  This morning I feel rested and ready to go.  I’m headed to Shelby to help a funeral home with their Google My Business page and then back to Charlotte to help a client shoot a short video for their Facebook page.  I have such a cool job!  I hope everyone has a great hump day!

Just a Thought…

I saw this on Pinterest today and it made me smile. Straight and to the point. If you want something different in your life, take the initiative to make it happen.

Easier said than done. The first steps are the hardest.

Since I had surgery on my foot early March, I’ve had a hard time getting back into exercising on a regular basis. I eat pretty healthy, but I’ve let that slide too. Sometimes it’s so difficult to get motivated. It’s easy to fall into the trap of being lazy.

Last week I finally took control. I weighed myself one morning and promised myself to get back to a consistent healthy lifestyle. I’d like to lose a few pounds, but it really isn’t about that for me. I just want to feel healthier. Stronger, inside and out.

I don’t follow a strict plan, I basically go by this motto: Eat…

Danny’s World: Off To a Wedding!

My friend Nathan is getting married today and we are off to celebrate with him and his new bride, Heather.  The reception is at a neat place on the water on Lake Wylie and we are excited to be included in their special day!  How do we look??

Danny’s World: A Retrospective

I have been using my blog to test a new strategy of posts and I hope you have enjoyed the more personal “live” feel.  For those of you who are just joining the party I have been using my blog as my social media outlet, posting pics from my life as it’s happening.

Today going through my laptop I came across some old pics of Evelina and I and thought I’d share.  Hope you enjoy…

The group of photos above are from when Evelina and I first met in March 2011-August 2011.  In that span we visited Asheville, Hilton Head Island, New Orleans and Dallas; all road trips which gave us a lot of time together.

Our day hiking Crowder’s Mountain…

This is our first Christmas together in 2011 and New Year’s in Ocean Isle, NC.

This old house is my “Money Pit”

In an old house, you learn very quickly that it ALWAYS has repairs needed.  Some far more important than others, but the list is…
