Episode 173 Details


McDonald’s recently unveiled a robot-run restaurant with no human staff. The futuristic location is in Australia, according to, and has self-service kiosks, digital menu boards and food delivered by robots. McDonald’s hopes that this new concept will streamline their operations and provide more efficient dining experiences.

We hear often about worker shortages and more use of AI as well as seeing McDonald’s locations are already using kiosks in the United States, now the question is when will this become the new “norm” in the USA? Stay prepared before going with a large group and learn the new technology out now at not just McDonalds but many other restaurants too. More and more restaurants are no longer offering printed menus, and are instead moving towards a “Scan QR Code” that then directs you to a menu on the phone. Don’t be caught off guard, stay in the know!

Hear how taking the time to stop “Smell the Roses” as the often said, has more relevance especially as a journey through life. If planning a long awaited vacation, have an idea of the sites to see but make sure to reserve time for impromptu stops along the adventure. See that roadside stand selling coconuts, PULL OVER and TRY! That is also part of the great memory making for you and your companions! Often it’s the “little things”, the moments that didn’t go perfect on that long awaited trip that become the most reflected, laughed and cherished. Plus toss the fishing pole along too or if in a new area, reach out and spend the money to try “new waters” to you.
Too often it happens that the road you’re traveling may very well be the ONLY time you travel it. So best to take it all in and then fondly remember those cherished memories!
