  1. The PNE just sent out an Opening Weekend email ... and it looks like Hell's Gate, the Scrambler and Coaster will not be operating at this time. Well, at least my two tickets for the weekend (Sat. & Sun.) didn't cost me anything. And I won't have to be there, right at opening time, to get Coaster rides in, before crowds build up. Still. Sad to find that out about Coaster. Hope it's up and running, soon. Photos from the PNE/Playland.
  2. Made and baked the fourth loaf last weekend. I think I put A LOT more cheddar into it, than was listed in the recipe. No matter. The loaf came out pretty good, and we almost finished it by yesterday, lol! This coming weekend: it's a Rosemary and Olives loaf! Dough in the bowl for it's first rise, 6-8 hours. Green onions; ground parmesan; a jalapeno seeded and sliced thin; cheddar cheese, diced up. That did look like a lot of cheddar I diced up for this loaf. But I carried on... First rise nearly finished. I see some add-ins are t
  3. Recently announced, and too too good, not to post here! https://www.cnn.com/2021/06/07/business/burger-king-chick-fil-a-lgbt/index.html Burger King took on Chick-fil-A, with donations to LGTBQ2+ groups for each new chicken sandwich sold. And selling them on Sunday, too. Take that, fil-A!
  4. ^ Since no source has been quoted ...... and I am just asking, judging by the photo ...... Does "A Unique World-Class Ride For Adventurers Of All Ages" = A New Coaster? It could end up being a trackless "Indiana Jones" like thing. Or not. Or indeed, a coaster. "Family style." Looking forward to hearing what it's all about.
  5. Somerby's Mango & Lime ......... cider. And that's how I like my beers. I do enjoy a good lager, now and then.
  6. Well, there ya go! No parking lot around under there, huh? I love ALL the greenery, underneath and around this one. Waytago Walibi Belgium! And thank you for the great photos, Satchboogie3!
  7. Great coverage of the whole place! Especially all - that - awesome - food! But ...... it might be nice to have a non-buffalo chicken Atomic Fusion Pretzel. But keep the blue cheese! For myself. I just can't do Buffalo Chicken in any style/form. (And yes, I am a {Very} Hot Sauce Wuss. Bite me!)
  8. We just spent over $70 cdn for a bunch of Italian-related stuff from a close by, "totally Italian" grocery store, LOL! .... Bosa Foods https://bosafoods.com/ A really awesome place to find good Italian (and local) food products and deli, in Vancouver. This included gnocchi, pitted olives (for a future loaf of home made bread), cheeses, egg noodles and some 'deli' to eat immediately!
  9. Well, to no surprise of my own, our October tour date of "Jesus Christ Superstar" has been pushed to November .... of next year! Broadway in New York, is going to start live theatre again in the early Fall (hooray), but I figured that touring shows would take a bit longer to re-organize and get themself touring again. So the delay for this one was expected. And that means "Anastasia" will be our first touring show, in January, 2022. ... Of "whatever" this season is, LOL.
  10. Just booked my second vaccine appointment, to happen in less than a couple of weeks. Woo hoo!
  11. This is sad, but necessary news to post. And good for the PNE addressing this awful discovery, with compassion and sincerity.
  12. ^ "The stories go..." that the new Tokyo Disneyland wanted as much from WDW's Magic Kingdom, as it could get. Which included a pretty good replica of Cinderella's Castle. And they got it. Which for myself, kind of cancels both of them out in my mind. Paris is the first one that actually changed the design of a Disney Castle, to much acclaim, at that time and still today. Hong Kong Disneyland did the same thing as TDL, but with DL's iconic first Castle, Sleeping Beauty's. But then lately, as we all know now, they decided they didn't want "the same castle" any more, and proceeded to re-think the
  13. Six Disney Castles to choose from! Pick one and post why. I still love the one in Paris, especially with that Dragon in it's lair underneath it. But now, I just can't stop admiring Hong Kong's new Castle re-creation. Especially the photos of it lit up in the evening. Really pretty.
  14. ^ I agree. And I bought the soundtrack cd of it, and still play it all, from time to time. Great songs and background music.
  15. ^ I'm amazed that for now, they're still going ahead with the Tokyo Olympic Games this summer. And I hope that Universal Osaka gets better and improves with each passing week. For all concerned.
  16. ^ Marcus, where is the new dark ride located in the park? I know the old fairy tale one was removed for the new coaster. By the way, everything looks great in the park! Ah yes, the former fairy tale dark ride. TPR 2014 Scandia Tour.
  17. Hope I can hang on for the next ten years, to see what Dolly and her staff have in store for everybody. The new to-be Resort Hotel looks very nice. And very 'woodsy'.
  18. Ooooooooooo. But - I honestly don't remember any past TRs mentioning parades at CP.* So, will this be something new for them? Or not? * I'm old, so that's my excuse for forgetting.
  19. I'm wondering what the "life expectancy" (w/batteries?) of these Spider Bot toys, is? And honestly, you really need two of them, to at least have a true Bot Battle, lol. One Spider Bot, wandering around on it's own, is pretty sad to me. Happy Avengers Campus Opening!
  20. Way too hot (lately) here, for a slice of hot pizza. Yuk.
  21. It looks like "Third Time's the Charm" worked out for my third loaf. Not perfect, mind. But then, most loaves aren't, right? So this weekend, I start putting "add ins" into my 4th bread dough. Which includes ..... cheddar, parmesan, scallions and a sliced up jalapeno! Lookin' pretty good, after 6+ hours of rising time. A ball of dough, ready for a second rising. In the (preheated) HOTHOTHOT dutch oven, and then in the oven for 45 min. bake time. Ta-daah! Looks great and has that 'crackle' when you squeeze the crust a bit. It
  22. ^ I envy you, having these park options. I'm still waiting for Playland (PNE) in Vancouver, to finally re-open. Hopefully, in a couple of weeks. <sighs> In time ..........
  23. We were there in Sept,1975. Just when The Revolution's land was being cleared. Was a fun time there, we remember. Congrats on MM`s 50th Anniversary! The photos of our 1975 visit to MM. In the bottom left photo, You can see the land being cleared for Revolution.
  24. ^ You're just posting it that way, because you like to to do it that way. 'Nuff said. KIE-ku.
