2011 in review – info from

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,600 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

TDC#164 The “Pooh Sized” Controversy

pooh sized?

Before we embark on a two week break (back August 24th!), we thought we’d stir the bubbling cauldron that is the Refillable Mug Controversy and add a pinch of Pooh.

Yes, it’s the “Pooh Sized Debate” courtesy of some favorite blog reads lately and those marvelous interwebz where all is quiet and peaceful, all the time.

And for your browsing pleasure, teh links:

For some thought provoking size related reading/commentary, Cat #2 recommends:
August 7th is the 2nd annual “Be Body Positive” Day – what are YOU going to do in all your Pooh, Ursula, Robin Hood or Tink sized glory, hmmmmm?
Our next Book Club choice is “Spinning Disney’s World: Memories of a Magic Kingdom Press Agent” (from Intrepid Traveler Publishing) written by Charles “Charlie” Ridgway. Follow the link for more info and/or seek this out on your favorite online book site or brick & mortar establishment. We look forward to discussing this book (with a listener or two perhaps?) come end of September.

TDC#92 Bridezilla Attacks!

Last week both Cats were out of town, Jennifer in beautiful Hawaii, Lisa in Texas. Cat #2 thought she’d take the mic and ask her very own Disney Dude how she was rating thus far on the “Bridezilla Scale”. She’s sorry she asked. Is it worse to be  Disney Bridezilla or a Disney Zombie Princess?

Click on this link to hear the competition… do NOT be swayed by the musical stylings of one Big Brian, however!  He can be quite spellbinding!

Happy 4th! See you at the cookout?

C’mon! Everybody is gonna be there!!! Jenn and I thought we would roll in, fashionably late, dahling (no capes!) and bring dessert! Yum! Of course, Cats LOVE cream, so I thought we could dig out my Poppa’s old hand crank ice cream maker and put the kids at the cookout to work after dinner! Doc promises the fireworks out in Passamaquody are going to be fantastic!

My only hope – and I forgot to ask him about this one – is that there is a pre-fireworks recital like I used to see in my Grandparents town of Connersville, Indiana. The Dixon Dance Studio classes would each have a turn at a patriotic interpretive dance of some sort – this was the 70’s people so you can imagine the hair, the leotards and the disco influenced reenactments of the midnight ride of Paul Revere – followed by the world’s oldest Legionnaire (he always seemed to be to me) leading the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance… Jennifer spent her fancier 4ths – at least as a teen – in Boston, so she’d have more stories about the Pops, REALLY awesome fireworks and Paul Revere…

So, time to pack up – We’ll see YOU there!! Oh, and be kind to your webfooted friends – that duck could be somebodies mother!
