Yoo Hoo and hello again, everybody!
Well, things look pretty good as far as shows about the Disney parks this time around; unfortunately, we don't have anything new coming up in the next two weeks, but there is a nice variety of some old favorites available, so while the rest of the family is hogging the TV watching basketball ( Go Lakers! ) or hockey ( Go Ducks! ), you folks who are Disney fans and not sports fans have some options.

And that's all she wrote, folks! Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful next couple of weeks. If I bored anyone by playing things too straight this time, not to worry - I'm just really busy this time, I'm sure I'll be back to my abnormal self by the next time you hear from me!
Take care, everyone.
