Here’s a Throwback Thursday back to 1993. With the popularity of the Disney-Pixar film, “Inside Out,” I was inspired to share this photo.

That’s me in the Wonders of Life pavilion at Epcot in Walt Disney World next to a sign for the Cranium Command attraction. That sign depicts General Knowledge, who is looking to commandeer someone into piloting the brain of a small child.
