Awesome surprise outside the 'temp. Never had my own 'Go me' posters before :) The other one had Toby Tyler on it (will photograph that one tomorrow- yes I stole them!)
Almost half way there!
Best photo op of the race.. But the line was massive so I didn't wait.. Yes the song 'It's raining men' played in the background...

Went to Kennedy for the 'On the Shoulders of Giants' presentation celebrating 50 years of Orbital Flight with the 2 remaining Mercury 7 Astronauts John Glenn and Scott Carpenter.
One of the earlier presentations was Cal Fowler who was a Launch Ops Manager for the Atlas rockets- He was joined by the Current Launch Ops Manager who talked about the current use of the Atlas rockets
The Mercury 7- Carpenter, Grissom, Glenn, Shirra, Shepard and Slayton
Was walking by when Glenn (and entourage)arrived and entered into a private event. I ended up oh 3-4 feet away...
Scott Carpenter- Mercury 4 (Aurora 7)
John Glenn- Mercury 3 (Friendship 7) and STS 95
Cal Fowler- Launch Ops Mgr
Hadn't been there since 2001 so was interested to try it again.. (Long story on how it was a compromise but anyway..) Overall it was good.
Food was amazing- The service started out great but was miserable by the end...
All in all not my kind of dining but it worked as a belated Valentine's Day dinner (since work schedules prevented it earlier...)

Tried the new 'Attraction' at the MK which is similar to Kim Possible but overall better.. After 'checking in' to the Firehouse I received a map, a Key Card and 5 'Spell Cards' with instructions my mission would start in Liberty Square.
I like that the Key Card keeps track of what missions I've done and am told it will activate 'harder' missions eventually once I pass the 'easy' ones... I also really liked that unlike KP I didn't feel rushed to complete the missions as the cards are mine to keep (unlike the phone) so took my time.
While the whole mixing of characters into 1 story line is a tad odd they are well done and for the most part blend in (though they are kinda loud so it noticeable when people are playing)
Overall I like it and will spend more time trying the different lands missions..
