Greeting, fellow WOE Friends,
At last, the week is starting anew. Why the excitement? Because I know that after a lovely weekend with Jennifer, I will listen to someone that has a great story to tell, and I will be able to share it with you!
I will also try (again) to stop eating after 8 p.m. or at least two hours before bed. That's my goal this week. Hope you have one set for yourself.

The WOE Cares is educating people on suicide prevention. Please look it over if you haven't yet and spread the word. Knowing the warning signs and using the WOE Care Cards can be very beneficial and could save your teens life! Knowing is the first step to understanding.
Monday's New Complex Addition
This week, I'd like to tell you about a new part of what may be called, Circus Town. Most of us like playing games of skill. You know, like the carnival games; make the ball in the basket, squirt the water in the clown's mouth, shoot the star out, etc.
Unfortunately, these games can sometimes be rigged against you and costly. Universal Studios in Orlando and Islands of Adventure offers a collection of these skilled games, but charge $6 each or $5 if you spend $25. That's a lot of money and probably explains why I don't see many people playing them.
When we go to the state fair, there are rows of these games, usually down the middle of the midway or on both sides and the center. The operators often call out to the guests walking by to have you try their game of chance to win a giant stuffed bear.
Often, you start off with a smaller than expected prize and have to keep winning and keep trading in your smaller prizes for the bigger one you see hanging from the ceiling.
Well, Circus World (unofficial name) will have a complete area dedicated to these games of chance. The area will be combined with Super Human Feats, where humans perform incredible acts on small stages around the Big Top.
I have heard there will be around 100 of these chance games and the variety will be amazing. But, here is the best part! Every game, no matter if your playing with ten other people or by yourself, will only cost $0.25 each! That's it! Just like the old days, you can carry a pocket full of quarters for play, or you can use re-loadable cards.
There will be no pressure, no calling guests out, or rigged games. The prizes will vary, and you can collect tickets and credits as you go along and redeem them for bigger prizes in one of six prize booths if you want. Or you can simply win that giant Panda by making two baskets.
Circus Town is rumored to be open until 10 p.m when it opens in January.
There will also be about ten of these games in the new Alley, the entertainment and shopping district that will be built between the two Complexes.
So much new fun coming our way!
Thanks for reading! Hope you have a great week. Until next time,
