Here's a story I saw just today -- a guy's dream came true when Lea Salonga, Jasmine's singing voice, invited him up on stage to sing "A Whole New World." (The website this links to, Sunnyskyz, specializes in nice stories.)
And in non-Disney nice news, folks in Seal Beach, California are stepping up to help a local business and the couple who run it.
After a long day yesterday of taking DD to 2 different doctors I didn't get any minutes in. She is better today so I am hoping to get more minutes. Plus there are no activities this weekend. No excuse to not get work outs in.
PollyannaMom and Elizabeth Smith both turn Outstanding Orange!
It's Veterans Day in the U.S. and Armistice Day in other countries. One hundred years ago today, folks got the happiest of news -- as of 11 a.m. in France (the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month), World War I had ended. Here's a blog post about the war from the perspective of Scientific American, which was publishing at the time.
Amazingly, well into this century there still lived people who took part in the war. The last living participant was Florence Green, a British woman who joined the Royal Women's Air Force in 1918 and died in 2012, age 110. The last living combat veteran was Claude Choules, who served in the British Royal Navy starting in 1915 and died in 2011, also age 110.
Imagine all the changes those folks saw in their lifetimes!
