It’s true, here’s the story that put Walt Disney into a deep depression … Walt Disney’s mother and father, Flora and Elias, were married on New Years Day 1888. For their Golden Wedding Anniversary, riding on the success of Snow White, the successful son Walt gifted them with a home in Toluca Lake (Hopeland), CA. The Disney’s loved their new home, except for the heat. Apparently the furnace wasn’t very good, and Mrs. Disney complained about the fumes. Jinx. Enter good son Walt, who had studio workers install a new gas furnace in the home. I have always heard that Walt fixed it himself, but can not find documentation to support that. In the night of November 26th, 1938, Father Disney woke and found his wife laying on the bathroom floor. He himself passed out trying to transport her.

  My Client Ms.Medford asked That I Announce This … (But only after giving me a hefty chewing out first)     Dear Friend, What can I say? Even after 16 years in business, I’ve still got the mind set of an HVAC mechanic and not some marketing guru.  I’m always thinking about things like air flow and freon levels. I know I’ll never be a Master Marketing guy (nor do I want to).   But after feeling the wrath of Mrs. Medford for not letting her know we provided this special type of service, it’s time I started  at least doing the obvious … letting our clients at least know we offer it here at Rebel.  I think what hurts the most is that Mrs. Medford, a great client of mine,  didn’t even use our company for the service (only because she had no idea we did it … my fault again), and I still got... more»
