  • Something has been going bump in the night in my home. Both my significant other, Rebecca Ricks, and I have experienced it.

    It started some weeks ago, but the activity has increased.

    Could this be paranormal and because of the Halloween season?

    Nah. It’s our Pomeranian.

    It is in part because our newest family member, a black Pomeranian puppy named Zorro that wouldn’t weigh 2 pounds soaking wet. He’s not going bump in the night, but he does play a role.

  • The children’s film industry is huge. In fact, of the 20 top-grossing films of 2012, six were animated, earning a total of around $2 billion.

    On top of theater earnings, there are many children’s films that go straight to rental/DVD. But among those rentals, there are some duds. If you are not careful you might have to sit through a film called “The Talking Cat.”
