No, she's a 'Recruitment Consultant' (dealing with people whose wages are about 5x mine Sad ).
I believe she's just based in Orlando but will cover the whole US (electronically I'd imagine).
She does get about a 50% pay rise taking this job so can't blame her.

It's hot like a sauna in Florida sir, even in winter. By New England standards anyway. They think the mid sixties are cold down there. Also, word from the wise- the Golden Corral restaurants look good, but it's not worth the aftermath lol.

This man speaks the truth, on both points.

Upon reaching retirement age Jewish parents are required by law to spend six months out of the year in FL. So we usually bring the kid (now kids) to visit Grandma and Grandpa (and Mickey) once or twice a year. I am always surprised by that first hit of humidity stepping out of the nice air conditioned airport.

As for Golden Corral...well, yeah. Just don't.

It'll be a while before we go out there - gotta give them time to prepare for a visitation  Wink Will let people know nearer know nearer the time in case I can bring a few small things out ( two cases of Highland Park and a case of Lagavulin does not count as small Evil or Very Mad )

Thanks Monbla.
I lived in Pensacola for a year in the early 80s (on a US Naval Base, I was in the RN at the time) and have been to Orlando every couple of years to Disney (the wife and daughter have sold their souls to the Realm of the Rat Twisted Evil ).
Being of the 3XL size, my visits consist of high speed waddles from AC to AC punctuated by stops at the ever decreasing smoking areas.
On my next trip (probably next Feb/March) my time will be filled procuring large quantities of tobacco at stupidly low prices then sending several packages of 'hobby supplies' home Very Happy
In all my trips to the US I have never noticed a Golden Corral, what is it? UK TripAdvisor gives it 4 stars (out of 5) but from the comments on here it sounds like MacD with a side order of botulism Laughing. Will ask my daughter to try it when her company Health Insurance kicks in  Laughing

It is an inexpensive buffet restaurant (all you can eat of course, this is the u.s) consisting of largely southern u.s. cuisine. Mostly fried foods, very heavy on the grease.

I was wondering about this myself. And I don't normally go to the "great God google" for information, preferring to get it from those who have experience or from my own non-internet research.

For a while there I thought that the Golden Corral might be a local reference to a place like the gentleman's establishments in NV.

Surprised


Cheers,

RR
