Quote of the day:

"Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia."

~  Charles M. Schulz (1922 - 2000)

((This thought has often occurred to me, especially when celebrating the coming of a New Year, which is one reason I thought it so appropriate that mankind met its end On the Beach in Australia)) 


I have been listening to Disney Wars while driving, fascinated with the office politics and simple aghast at the amount of money the top executives walked away with, literally millions upon millions of dollars each year.  And the most stunning thing of all?  They thought they were worth more!  I found it interesting that Disney’s website offers to do a job search using your LinkedIn profile to find a good fit – unfortunately, it seems they have zero interest in someone with a Loan Servicing background at this time, so I’m not in line either to make that kind of money or to work in “the happiest place on earth”.   Don’t get me wrong, I’m a rabid Disney fan and pine if I don’t visit the House of the Mouse regularly, but I do wish there was less money spent on the executives and more money put back in making the theme parks all that they could be.
