A couple of days ago in the US the state of Oklahoma experienced an earthquake, the biggest in its recorded history. Oklahoma does not have very many earthquakes at all, so this one was intriguing. Turns out the epicenter of the quake is in the heart of an area where "fracking" is used to extract oil and buy cheap cialis natural gas from deep below the get viagra online with paypal surface.

Fracking is http://www.bm-cultura.de/50mg-viagra-retail-price controversial as it involves pumping water, sand and chemicals under pressure to force out gas and oil, especially natural gas. Here's an animated film I discovered, produced by Earthjustice.org that explains the process and the environmental and health risks associated with it. The Forum topic is here with additional videos describing problems with fracking available for you to see.

Recently I had an opportunity to see "Tangled" and after re-assimilating the experience after its theatrical run last year, I'm compelled to offer my comments and say that it is an absolutely fantastic film. Tangled is by far a much better movie than it's initially given credit for.

The production quality is excellent, the story moves along nicely, the acting is terrific, so's the music and orchestration, and the design is everything one would expect from the studio's outstanding staff. Above all, the relationship between the two central characters is only best offers cialis 50 mg tablets very touching and good choice canada viagra prescription believable, and with an exceptional villain in the great Disney tradition. To top it off, there's several places where the viewer will be challenged to cialis professional generic hold back the it's great! discount viagra online tears.

While not perfect, it is in no doubt one of the best, if not the best animated feature Disney has produced since I don't know when, in my opinion. Here's a sequence from Tangled to enjoy...

Heard from Jim Clark today concerning this painting recently discovered and attributed to Ward Kimball, one of the venerable Nine Old Men from the Golden Age of www.kachinwomen.com Disney Animation.


Jim has this to say about the special work of art from one of animation's most brilliant talents...

......................

WARD KIMBALL - "THE COMMITTEE" - ON PBS
Look for a special episode of Antiques Roadshow featuring "The Committee", on PBS from Eugene in early 2012!

I had the opportunity to bring "The Committee" to the Roadshow this summer for review in Eugene, Oregon. Appraiser, Leila Dunbar (best known for sports memorabilia appraisals) immediately recognized the piece as a Kimball. Apparently her father was an expert on Disney and animation history, so Leila took to the piece and put us on the air. The Committee played amazing on the monitor and when it hits the seyonic.com air in 2012 the whole country will learn about Ward Kimball, his contributions and his work.

Ward Kimball 1914-2002
