Query: why does brown paneling look upscale in Starbucks and horribly dated in McDonald's?
For more information about the new look, check out the following news articles:

Note: I have been in two other updated McDonald's in my local area. Their new looks did not disturb me quite as much as the one in my neighborhood. I think it may be the colors/materials chosen by my nearby franchisee. I do like some of the interiors shown in the articles listed above.
Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.
