For 2017

Earth Day 2010

Last year for Earth Day Disney put out an excellent movie called Earth. If you didn't see it - try to rent it - it was excellent - and the photography was out of this world - you learned so much. I think one way to get people to pay attention to the earth and to take care of it - is to see how fascinating it is.



This year they are putting out one called Oceans - starting today. Go see it. We are this weekend. These are little trailer teasers for Oceans.

Happy Birthday Peter Frampton - Wikipedia

In June 1978, Frampton was involved in a near fatal car accident in the Bahamas, suffering multiple broken bones, concussion and muscle damage. Dealing with the pain of the accident contributed to a brief period of drug abuse for Frampton.

Frampton has lived in London, Guatemala and the USA, the latter including New York, Los Angeles and Nashville. He moved to Indian Hill, an eastern suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio, USA in June 2000. This is the birthplace of his wife Tina Elfers, and the city in which they were married in 1996. They chose to live there to be closer to Tina's family. After the September 11, 2001 attacks, Frampton decided to become a United States citizen.

Frampton has been married three times: Mary Lovett (1971–73); Barbara Gold (1983–93), with whom he had two children, Jade and Julian; and Tina Elfers (13 January 1996 – present), with whom he has one child, actress Mia Frampton who is currently starring as Becca Keeler on Make It or Break It.[4] Jade Frampton earned a degree in fashion merchandising from Kent State University, Ohio in 2005.[29]

In 1996, Frampton appeared in an episode of The Simpsons entitled Homerpalooza, in which he played Do You Feel Like We Do.

Frampton also made a T.V. appearance in the Family Guy episode Death Lives in which Peter Griffin asks Death to bring Peter Frampton to play Baby, I Love Your Way to his wife.

Also in 2000, Frampton served as a technical advisor for Cameron Crowe's autobiographical film Almost Famous. He also appears briefly in the film as 'Reg', a road manager for Humble Pie, Frampton's real-life former band.

Frampton has also made an appearance on commercial television as well. He played a supporting role in a GEICO commercial, where he performed a small portion of "Do You Feel Like We Do".

I like that he decided to become a US citizen.

Oh girlfriend, I have a story to tell you some day maybe about Peter Frampton. I CANNOT put it in a comment but MAY email you about it. My stomach does ugly flipflops at the mention of his name.

Lovely blog! How do I make the cakes? Oh, no, not me. I was just sharing them with you. The best I can do is plop frosting on a cupcake when the occasion merits!

Hey Sandie!

I'll have to see if I can get the movie to watch at the house. I'm sure we all would enjoy watching it. It seems like it would be very facinating to see!

Happy Earth Day!

I recognize the name of Peter Frampton, but not who he is. Sounds like hes been through a lot.

I'll have to check on the "Earth" movie and see if we can get it through Netflix. Sounds interesting!
