Snow White!! For our new Disney Character Series debuting, I'd like to share some tips for new visitors. This is one of my favorites from my Disney collection.

If meeting characters during your Walt Disney World vacation is important then here are a few tips. Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom & Hollywood Studios each have a plethora of characters to Meet & Greet with. Your task is to select with park you want to tackle first & utilize FastPass+. Visit DisneyWorld.com, find the "Entertainment" section of each park and here you'll see ALL characters with their times for that day. Now for those that do utilize FastPass+, here's where your early planning gets you in quicker then everyone else. With just park tickets you can select FastPass tickets up to 30 days in advance, 60 days for those who booked a Disney hotel/park vacation combo. For those other characters meeting guests in random spots you'll have to grab an "Entertainment Times Guide" along with a park map and find your character in the list. Most likely if he/she is not on the list, they are not at that park. Always ask a Disney Cast Member for more information as they will have a times guide that they keep on them to help you out. Always always always arrive early or during Extra magic Hours for hotel park guests to get in those character lines early. Once in line you will be able to meet them, if a Cast Member cuts off the line you have missed your chance. If you got in then have fun, take a photo, get an autograph and don't forget that hug at the end!

Finally an MMO business model that is rethinking about how we want to pay for our premium games.  Can you say Play-to-pay? 
You've heard of pay-to-play, but what about play-to-pay?

Just loverly.
 
Art Nouveau French Bronze Dragon Nautilus Shell Lamp 1900's

Bronze and natural nautilus shell, with foundry numbers at the base, but no maker's mark. via eBay.

I always find works with dragons interesting, and coming from the Art Nouveau period makes them doubly so. I'm not sure I understand connecting a nautilus shell to this, but as we don't know the maker, I suppose we don't know the intention. Still very unique, though.

Watching this I was reminded of Archduke Alexander's account of Nicholas II in Once a Grand Duke.  He didn't see his nephew as a bad ruler, but rather one that was manipulated by circumstance, and, well, Rasputin.  

 I was wondering if you've had a chance to read that book, and if so what you think of the Archduke's take on the czar?

Thanks for working through your strategy as you played.  It's nice to hear the thought process behind card choices on the board.

I'm feeling so fractured at the moment.  I have too many things to do and not enough focus to accomplish any of them.
