"You see, Wendy, when the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies." James M. Barrie Peter Pan.

Stand by me

Truly breathtaking example of how technology and art can bring us closer together. This is what it's all about.

Stand by Me
Four years ago while walking down the street in Santa Monica, CA the voice of Roger Ridley singing “Stand By me” was heard from a block away. His voice, soul and passion set us on a course around the world to add other musicians to his performance. This song transformed Playing For Change from a small group of individuals to a global movement for peace and understanding. This track features over 35 musicians collaborating from all over the world. They may have never met in person, but in this case, the music does the talking.

My Inner Child doesn't know Spreadsheets

Happily ever after?

A dark expose of the Princesses ...... You know the ones ...

First there's Red Riding Hood still trying to recover from the shock.

Rapunzel had it all we thought ....

................until the chemotherapy.

Cinderella's life was going to be royal...

and then she discovered Crown Royal.

Snow White was ready to take care of her Prince

but didn't expect this.

Belle tried to build up her faltering self esteem

Apparently true love's kiss wasn't enough as a comatose Sleeping Beauty

ends up in an old people's home with her aging prince.

Jasmine took charge of her life with an attitude.

Will you be going to bed alone?

How embarassing

Though the elephant is the national symbol of Thailand, the country has gone panda-crazy - so crazy that indignant zookeepers have taken the unusual step of painting elephants to look like pandas.

The stunt has resulted in panda-monium as the zookeepers try to draw the country's attention back to its neglected giants.

Multiple Me!

There's more in the Ocean than just Sharks!

Fran will be looking left and right before diving in !!

"You can tell where it came out of the ocean and walked toward the sand dunes," just south of the Pineda Causeway."The paw prints are just a little bit smaller than my hand."Experts say the mystery tracks left behind Wednesday likely belonged to a 5- to 6-foot-long alligator.The rare beachside tracks also were the latest incident in which alligators -- along with a crocodile caught during the weekend in waist-deep waters beneath the Cocoa Beach Pier -- made their presence known in the ocean waves off Brevard County.

Good mornin', good mornin'!

We've danced the whole night through,
good mornin', good mornin' to you.

Good mornin', good mornin'!
It's great to stay up late,
good mornin', good mornin' to you.
