I had to explain to my brother that there are two Disneys, Disney World in FL and Disneyland in CA.  He didn't know about the California one.

I don't think an adult really needs to know about theme park locations.

California Disneyland was the original one and DisneyWorld in Fla was the 2nd.

Oh, I don't know - I've got a friend that goes to Disneyworld multiple times every year.  She's got a FB page called "<name> does Disney" where she has a countdown to her next visit, reports back on everything she does there, etc.

She takes the train down to FL, though; she's afraid of flying.  Otherwise I think she'd have visited every one around the world.

Honestly, I've known about Disneyland and DisneyWorld since I was a kid, and I've never cared much for Disney as a rule. (Although some of their divisions... Pixar, Marvel... I like very much.)

My husband is constantly getting Disney World and Disneyland mixed up.  He'll tell people "We went to Disney World", and then when they say "Oh, nice, how was Florida?", he'll look confused and say "Uh, we were in California." 

I remember seeing a post on Reddit from someone who had accidentally bought park tickets for the "wrong" Disney, and he was freaking out thinking that he'd wasted all that money.  He was assured that the park would be able to help him out, and sure enough, they did.

Update. Colleague has now started to work with another MLM and has invited me, and the same group of employees to this new "party" which appears to be online only.

Sigh.

BG above.

Colleague is now selling for three different MLM companies, and using her work time, email, and IM to harangue various staff about buying from her.  :-\

Colleague is soon going to face PD, because she is falsifying time sheets, and has been caught. Colleague made appointments with students and was not there for them, and has taken to turning in assignments, reports, and HR documentation days late, because she is so busy.

I can hear the calls now...

"[Colleague] was very devoted to her work for MLM1, MLM2, and MLM3."

"I thought she worked at OFFICE?"

"Well, she was employed there. The work she did while she was there was trying to sell MLM1, MLM2, and MLM3."

Is this talking about previously frozen fish purchased from a grocery store?  It doesn't seem to go along with current food safety guidelines.  Also, you don't know how old the fish from the grocery store is.

The packaging should tell you if it was previously frozen or not and the fresh fish should be labelled by packaging date. So you really should know how old the fish is unless the grocery store is doing something shady.

The person quoted in the previous post works at a processing plant so that person is talking about very fresh fish and is probably not taking into account shipping times from source to store.

I usually don't buy fish from the fish counter, so I don't know how they put the date on there.  If the guidelines from the store say to eat it within 12 hours of purchase, I don't think you should be waiting several days to eat it.

Id say unless you bought it from an actual fish market, then eat it within a day.
