It’s fun to reflect back on working as a full-time, 30-year Cast Member until 5pm on Halloween 2014.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

A surreal feeling that helps make this life event feel more real. Really real you might say. Burn the ships real.
When a spouse retires this creates what’s called a life event. A life event qualifies as significant enough to allow for modifying health care coverage to include a retired spouse.
Dear Son, what looks like luck, privilege, or ease is massively anything but. So glad you know this without a shadow of a doubt.
