Three Days of Christmas Feasts in Italy

Le Tre Feste di Natale  The Three Christmas Feasts  Most families in Italy begin celebrating il Natale on the evening of December 24 (la vigilia di Natale) with a big dinner.

Can Humor Alter Your Brain Chemistry?

“If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide.”   ~ Mahatma Gandhi Do you know why everyone isn’t in a mental hospital? Because there isn’t enough room. Philosophers have long observed a dearth of happiness among humanity. Henry David Thoreau said, “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation.” John Stuart Mill observed, “Unquestionably, it is possible to do without happiness; it is done involuntarily by nineteen-twentieths of mankind.” Abd ar-Rahman III, who reigned...

Mary Poppins’ penguins are from Pasadena

They may be frolicking in London on film, but the penguins in “Mary Poppins Returns” are actually from Pasadena – as is the horse and carriage and the antique china bowl. They were created by Duncan Studio, which did the animation for the Rob Marshall-directed Disney movie. “The technique that we used was hand drawn on paper, which I think very few people still do that,” Duncan Studio owner Ken Duncan said. “People still do hand-drawn, but it’s on computer.” The horse and carriage in “Mary P...
