What An Amazing Find We Made

Recently we started cleaning out some things from many years ago that I had found.  In these items I found a old Mickey Mouse Christmas Ladder.  This ladder goes next to the Christmas Tree, and has lights, and moving parts.  I realized when we found it that it would take some serious amount of work to make this item work correctly.  I was going to throw it away, but my wife decided that the two of us should take a little time and try to make the necessary repairs.  After a few days we completed the repairs that we saw needed to be made.  Now the item is good as new.  The item won’t be sold by me, but I have seen this item go for some good money.  Thanks dear for advising me to keep it.

After we finished with that we continued going through the rest of the things that I had been collecting.  We found a very old 33 record, and book.  While these were nice back in the day the times have changed, and everything is audiobook, or other digital means.  If I had a usb turntable it may have swayed my decision to heave this item, but I am not going to go out and spend money to be able to use something that has absolutelly very little value at this point in time.

Animated Mickey Mouse Appears Again

Ever since the first time I heard about the “Animated” Mickey Mouse being tested at a character greet area in Disneyland I was a little curious.  Recently during the christening of the Disney Dream I once again caught a glimpse of this phenomenon.  What I think for the most part is that this character is going to be used for park shows, tv shows, and things like that.  I personally think that this is a great thing if they finally put it into the parks.  Kids will be able to enjoy Mickey a bit more than they do.  I mean think about it… Mickey never talks at “Meet and Greets.”  This technology would enable Mickey to talk to everyone he comes into contact with.

Take a look at the video below and see what I mean.  This is like totally awesome.
