I hope everyone had an exciting Fourth of July.

My Fourth was filled with relaxation after a stressful July 3rd.  First, my central air didn’t restart after a power blip and I thought the compressor motor was fried and I shut off the air conditioner.  I was without air conditioning for most of the day until the HVAC repairman came and found nothing wrong.  All that was need was to let the air conditioner sit idle for 10-15 minutes to let the compressor reset and then turn it back on.  After that, it worked fine.

After that fiasco, I went swimming with my daughter at the local town pool.  I decided that it would be a good idea for my phone to go swimming with me.  Thankfully, I was eligible for an upgrade so my broken iPhone 4 turned into a functional iPhone 5.  These were two stresses that I didn’t need heading into a holiday weekend.

Now, on to the weekly update:

Walt Disney World and especially the Magic Kingdom are filled with Americana.  The park entrance is Main Street USA.  A place meant to take guests back to the early part of the 20th century.  This was Walt’s vision for the parks.  To take guests back in time when things were simpler.  And with that, onto the Americana.
