Free Admission to Disney on Your Birthday!!!

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts announced today that in 2009 it will offer free admission on your birthday to its theme parks in California or Florida.

"Birthdays are the one occasion that we all share every year. We thought a free birthday ticket would be the icing on the cake," said Jay Rasulo, chairman of Walt Disney parks and Resorts at a press conference today.

The new policy follows up on 2008's popular "Year of a Million Dreams" promotion. Disney wants to focus on guests and the special occasions they're celebrating on their trips. ("Celebration vacation" is their term for these trips.)

Guests will need to provide a valid ID showing their date of birth. For more details, visit disneyparks.com.

Beware Home Depot Customers

For those men who may be regular Home Depot customers. Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your friends.

Here's how the scam works:

Two seriously good-looking 20-something year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is impossible not to look.

When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No' and instead ask you for a ride to another Home Depot. You agree and they get in the backseat. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.

I had my wallet stolen July 5th, 6th, 7th, twice on the 11th, 12th, 13th, & 26th. Also August 2nd, 3rd, twice on the 9th, 10th, 11th, 16th, 17th, three times last Saturday twice last Sunday and very likely again this upcoming Labor Day weekend.

So tell your friends to be careful.

P.S. Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99
