A Look At The T-Rex Restaurant – A Roaring Good Time

Located in Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World, T-Rex is an unusual, yet extremely fun place to eat. The noise level seems to be a challenge for some patrons, but that’s the price you pay to be surrounded by wooly mammoths, triceratops, and tyrannosaurus rex. There are also flames emitted by the Kitchen of Fire. The walls and ceiling even change color. Sounds like a pretty happenin’ spot!

T-Rex Aims to Please

Offering fare for herbivores as well as carnivores, the menu has something for everyone. With names like Layers of the Earth Lasagna, Brachiosaurus Bruschetta and the Gigantosaurus Burger, it sounds like you might want to bring your appetite to this place. There is also a dessert called Chocolate Extinction. I wonder if that’s their version of “Death by Chocolate.” Entrees range from around $15 to $36.

There’s a separate menu for kids, which seems to have super reasonable prices, around $7.99 for an entree and $2.99 assuming they’ve behaved well enough to make it to dessert. In a place like this, it’s pretty doubtful any kid would misbehave. There’s just too much to see and do other than just eat.

Dino-sized Staff

It appears that it takes a small army to run this place as well. A single shift can contain 120 staff members. Rather mind boggling, if stop to think about it but considering the location and the activity level of this place, it’s really not all that surprising. The staff seems accommodating, informative and friendly.

Authentic Surroundings

Being that none of us remembers being around dinosaurs, we can only assume that the designers of T-Rex had their habitats in mind. They’ve included geysers and greenery with the triceratops and stegosaurus and even included underwater prehistoric creatures. There are meteor showers and roaring dinosaurs, which definitely add to the ambiance.

You Can Take it With You

In addition to the interactive Paleo Screens, Discovery Creek, Discovery Dig and Paleo Zone, there is a gift shop where you can pick up clothing, educational toys or build your own dino at Build-A-Dino from the Build-A-Bear Workshop. This is truly so much more than a restaurant. It’s an adventure that long after the meal is over, the memories linger.

Pre-Historic Fun

Unless you are adverse to loud and busy restaurants, you will most likely enjoy T-Rex. It’s got great theming, fun food, and plenty of things to see and do for the young and young at heart.

How to Survive in an Alternative World at Roughly the 19th Century of Development – Rex Knight Does

Nitro Wild – by David C. Brown. ISBN 978-0-9831907-9-0. Published by the author, 2017. ($12.99 from Barnes & Noble, paperback edition). Reviewer received book from Author as pdf-book.

David Brown has composed an epic alternative fantasy history tale of the 19th Century.

Rex Knight is the protagonist. From Rex’s mysterious transport from Earth through his first few years on Erden, the inhabitants’ name for their planet, he struggles to survive, thrive, and finally succeed in great ways. Most of the story is related from Rex’s viewpoint.

There are other transported races and groupings of people. The Wapiti spoke a lingua franca that was primarily English, German and some of the indigenous peoples’, the Clovis, own language. This could support other transports and some indigenous groups, but there is also an alien, non-human race called the Ichneumons who rule a substantial part of the continent that appear to be much like 19th century North and South America.

The details of the planet, civilizations and governments here are sprinkled sparingly throughout the story’s development. The Ichneumons are vying for control of the world with the mighty Prussian empire. The area that conforms roughly to the Eastern United States is controlled by the Prussian Empire. The remainder is largely controlled by the Ichnemons. These two empires are at constant conflict for control of this continent. Meanwhile, the European and Asian equivalent continents are split between the Prussians and their allies and the Mongol tribes that are constantly restless if not openly attacking on the eastern borders of Prussia.

Historically, the Ichnemons have conquered and obliterated most of the indigenous population. The Wapiti and the Clovis have avoided such a fate by aligning with the Prussians. That and the rugged wilderness terrain of their area made it much more difficult for the Ichneumons’ Emperor, Rakakonda, and his troops. Since most of the contact had been through attempts at conquest and other forms of war, there is no love lost between the groups. The third major power group here is the slave owners who usually held great cotton plantations and maintained them with slave labor.

The Prussians are entering an Abolitionist time and many established institutions are upset, but specifically the slave trade has been discouraged and then outlawed throughout the empire. This creates another group fighting to control its own destiny. These plantation owners want to maintain the status quo for slavery, fearing that they will be bankrupted with any change.

The plots and the intrigues rival any power in 19th century Earth for sure. This all contributes to the complexity and different perspectives of the narrators. It also makes for a very intense and complex plot.

The format is chapters broken into sections where perspective changes between several narrators.

There are too many characters to describe here, but the most prominent are Rex Knight and his partner, Amy Caroom. Amy is wanted, dead or alive, by her own father, Purnell. From this humble beginning, there are characters numerous and varied. Most do not warrant mention as they pass in and out of the narrative, but they come in, are developed enough to be believable and then move on out of the perspective of the particular narrator.

One of the main difficulties is the incorporation of the alien race as main personnel involved in all the war, the political intrigues and even the antipathy between the slave owners and the Prussian Empire that holds sway over their area.

The plot weaves in and out of focus. The characters move on and off stage. The leaders of the groups and such, keep busy with political and actual problems while interacting well making the plot even stronger.

For lovers of alternative reality and historical adaptations of culture, science and creatures would love this book and it is easy to maintain interest. Since this is the first of a series of books from a relatively prolific author as Brown, all can look forward to more coming from this fertile mind.

5 Stars.

Forever Living Products – A Complete Review Of The Forever Living Products Business

Is Forever Living Products a great opportunity of a big scam? This review tells you everything you need to know.

The Forever Living Products

Forever Living Products is a health and wellness company from Scottsdale, Arizona. They sell a large variety of products including aloe vera health drinks; nutritional supplements like vitamins, minerals and nutrients; weight-management products like energy bars and metabolism boosters; personal care products like soaps, bath salts and shower gels; and skin care products like moisturizer and sun screen, to name but a few.

They were founded in 1978 by Rex Maughan when he got fed up of busting his back for someone else all his life. He decided he wanted to create a home-based business where he could take control of his own destiny and provide a new life for his family.

Forever Living Products has its own aloe plantations, as well as manufacturing and packaging plants, and storage facilities. This cuts out the need for third-parties to become involved, and allows Forever Living to control the price of their own products and be the masters of their own destiny.

The Forever Living Business Opportunity

Forever Living Products is a multi-level marketing (MLM) opportunity, which means that it sells its products through a network of direct salespeople usually called Distributors. There are multiple ways to earn money but the most obvious ones are through retail sales, bonuses, and by adding more Distributors into your business. When they make a sale, you get a commission.

As with all MLM opportunities the most difficult and challenging part of making money from Forever Living Products is finding people who want to buy your product and join your business. You might think that the products are outstanding, and they may well be, but the way of the world dictates that more people will NOT be interested in your products than will be. It is only natural.

A lot of network marketers waste so much time trying to find people who are interested in the product. The will spend their days cold-calling, handing out free samples, distributing CDs and DVDs, giving presentations, and pleading with people to see the benefits of the products. With so many uninterested people out there, and so much competition from other health and wellness companies, trying to find people who are interested can sometimes seem like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

The best way for you to find those who are interested is not to go out looking for them, but to make people an offer they can’t refuse and sit back and wait for them to come to you! This is a skill that, if you can master it properly, will set you and your Forever Living business up for life. It is a tried and tested technique in the network marketing game, and is proven to produce stunning results.

People are out there right now searching on the internet for products that will improve their life. They are looking to buy exactly what you are trying to sell. It is a perfect combination, but if they can’t find you then they will buy from somebody else instead and you will have lost a potential customer. You have to make an offer that allows you to stand out from the crowd, and has hundreds of people every week contacting you about Forever Living Products, ready to buy from you.
