Ever been to Disneyland or Walt Disney World? Notice how immaculate the parks usually are? You can thank a specialized custodial crew of approximately 600 people and 200 cats, including scuba divers, who give up their nights to earn a few bucks and maintain an incredibly high standard of cleanliness.
While working at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World, I was responsible for emptying the trash cans in front of the castle.
One afternoon as I was changing out the trash bag in one of the refuse bins, I saw a small girl point at me and overheard her ask her mother, "Who's that lady?"
"Why, honey," her mother replied, "that must be Cinderella, before she met her fairy godmother!"

WELCOME to YOUR WEEK: Taking a cue from the Disney movie, Finding Nemo, it's "Fish Are Friends, Not Food Week." Today is "Please Take My Children to Work Day," the seventh annual holiday for stay-at-home Moms. And it was on this day in 1914 that Archduke Ferdinand and his wife were assassinated, setting off a chain of events that culminated in World War I.
