Twitter Roundup for Week Ending 11 October, 2014

Share Button
Had to go to Florida last week, still very very tired. But managed to go to the tourist Mecca known as Disney – it was a lot of fun but I need a vacation just from that. The kids loved it though. I signed up to give Disney some feedback, I might post it after they receive, not much complaining as constructive criticism. The image below I took with my cell phone, with Disney’s PhotoPass (a service so good I cannot say enough about it) and the quality of cameras on cell phones,  there is no need to carry the big bulky items unless you’re a professional.
By the way, the Food and Wine expo in Epcot is so much fun it should be done 4 times a year.
