Tuesday Trivia!


Did you know:
When Michael Eisner was CEO for Disney, he had a strong interest in architecture.  When it came time for the 2 hotels near EPCOT to be built, on a deal made prior to Eisner becoming CEO, he worked his way and was able to choose his architect.  He chose Michael Graves, a fairly prominent architect (I think.  I'm no architecture junkie, but Wiki made him sound important) who has been designing since the late 1960's. This is how the Swan and Dolphin came to be!

Now, Michael Graves may sound familiar - the reason I first knew his name?  His line for Target!  He had a commercial for a "stylish" hand-held vacuum a couple of years ago.  

Now you know :)
