Earlier this Month I went on a Trip to Florida to the central part to the Parks Halloween events that I do every year. I flew out of Portsmouth Pease Air Force Base as I got a cheap deal and flew direct to Orlando Sanford Airport and I flew out Sept 30 and stayed in Daytona Beach for the Night. The Next Morning I went to the Ocean at Daytona Beach and went to some shops. I love Daytona’s Ocean Atmosphere. Then next, I drove to St Augustine where I went to the Alligator Farm. I saw real alligators and a pen of many many of them and ya get to throw food at them. I saw exotic birds and turtles. I saw a show of a trainer with the gators. Next I went to the Lighthouse, then Target and the beach. At the Beach I made a wrong turn due to how St Augustine is hard to navigate due to how the roads were built 500 years ago and my car was stuck in the sand. I had to have someone tow my car out. I thanked them for it. I had lunch at Bojangles in St Augustine. Next I went to the Bass Pro Shops in Daytona Beach. After that I went to the Mount Dora area where I saw huge lakes and even an alligator sign and went to the retail stores. After that I went to Apokka where I went to sight-see and was your typical town.  Then I went to the Christmas Tree Shops in Alamonte Springs. After that I went to the HUGE HUGE FLORIDA MALL which has a huge variety and a Crayola Store, M&M Store, Zara, H&M and lots more and is immune to the Amazon Effect. Then I had dinner at Freddys Steakburgers and Frozen Custard in Orlando and went to my motel in Kissimmee for the night. The next morning I WENT TO DISNEY WORLD, the Happiest place on Earth. I got to the park at 8 am to beat the crowds. I went to Hollywood Studios to the NEW TOY STORY LAND FIRST to beat the crowds and got there at 9 am. It was still a 45 min wait on the Slinky Dog Rollercoaster which was a fun ride. I then I had pictures with Jessie and Woody and went on the Aliens twirling Cups Ride. Next I went on the Tower of Terror which was scary as it goes up high and then down. Next I took the bus to Magic Kingdom where it rained and I watched the Parade and show at the castle. I went to Fantasyland to the Beauty and the Beast area. I went to Ariel’s Grotto to have a selfie with Ariel and on the ride. Next I attended the awaited Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Event which is a Halloween themed event and the Magic Kingdom is decorated for it. It had special Halloween treats, Halloween music with the Castle and buildings lit up in Halloween colors, a show at the Castle of Oogie Boogie and the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus. There was trick or treating in many areas. There was a Halloween Ball. There was a Boo Too You Parade where they sing Boo To You and many characters good buys and bad guys on parade floats. Last was a Fireworks display at the Castle with Villain songs and The Castle Changing Colors. I spent 15 hours at Disney. Next I went to my motel in Kisssimmee. Next Morning I went to Universal Studios. I went on the New Fast and Furious Super Charged Ride which had a display of cars and a car ride in LA Setting. Next I went on the ET Ride (The only original ride left), Transformers and the Simpsons area. In the Simpsons area I had selfies taken with Sideshow Bob and the Simpson family. It was a warm weather day. I then went back to my motel on International Blvd to recharge my phone. I then went back to Universal Studios to Halloween Horror Nights 28. Its an event where they have haunted houses and many actors dressed up to scare people and with chainsaws and fog in some areas. They had a Class of 1985 stage show, Scare zones such as Killer Klowns from Outer space and Halloween lights on a building. They had many different haunted houses ya go through like Strangers Things and Halloween 4 where they have props set up for those series and people jump out to scare you. I got fast pass and went to Strangers Things first (without fast pass was a 90 min wait) and it even had a kitchen with Christmas lights and a plant monster, I next went to Pantrologist, Halloween 4 (Michael Myers would come at you with his knife), Trick R Treat (an anthology film of 4 stories and it had props in that and Sam comes out in it), Seeds of Extinction, Scary Tales and a Carnival Grave Yard. I saw a Scare zone of Revenge of Chucky where they had a bill board of Good Guy Dolls and Chucky talk to people and being a wise ass. Next I had dinner at Hooters on International Blvd and then back to my motel. International Blvd host many resorts, clubs, a Ferris Wheel, Convention Center and Restuarants. Next Morning I went to Volcano Bay which is a Water Park on the Universal Studios property that opened last year. I was going to go up the high up waterslide shaped like the volcano but it was too high to go up and I got scared. I went on 3 other waterslides and they were fun and a great ride. The ride on water slides can tire me out. Then I had lunch at Freddys Steakburgers and went to Publix. Last I went to The Orlando Sanford Airport to head home which I got home safe and went out.

says that the Hand Held Camera will be one of those things, well people use their phones to take pictures. Photographers use professional high quality cameras for their photography jobs.

 

The Wallet is one but what of where to keep our IDs?

 

The Desktop is another that may be gone. Smaller Laptops and mobile devices have made that obsolete.

 

The House Key will be obsolete. Smarthomes and home automation are starting to be developed.

 

TV will be obsolete. Well ya can watch TV on your laptop and on Netflix. Cable and Network Stations could go! That may be gone by 2020.

 

At least Retail was not mentioned in obsolete. We still need a store to walk into and look at stuff. But Technology can change the world!
