Wow, yesterday we logged our second day of school since Christmas Break. In Lawrence County, we find creative ways to miss school. Since break we have missed one day for black ice and two days for burst water mains but we have pretty weather for the rest of the week and I hope through the 19th. Our academic team is hosting District 71 Governor’s Cup competition on the 19th of January. Start praying for good weather now.
Today is Richard Milhous Nixon’s birthday. Nixon was a frequent visitor to Disneyland but his visit to Walt Disney World’s Contemporary Resort in 1973 is infamous. Nixon held a press conference in which he delivered the line, “People have got to know whether or not their President is a crook. Well, I’m not a crook.” Hmmm. You probably know where I’m sending you, The Hall of Presidents, where you can visit all the presidents, crooks and otherwise.
This is National Static Electricity Day. If you’ve been to Orlando, you probably know that it is the lightning strike capital of America and every building has multiple lightning rods. To go to Walt Disney World, you probably have to go through or near Orlando but where can you go in particular to celebrate Static Electricity Day? Tron Track… Test Track. They’ve added a dramatic lightning strike to the middle of the ride. To make it even better, go to Ricky Brigante’s site, inside the magic .com and download his Tron Track mp3 overlay. Start up the overlay when you ride Test Track and, Ta Da, you’re riding Tron Track. You know you want to, do it.
Remember, your best excuse is always: waiting for your dreams to come true.
