Disney+’s All-New Live-Action “Lady and the Tramp” - New Trailer


Check out the all-new trailer for the live-action version of “Lady and the Tramp,” which debuts on Disney+ when the new streaming service launches on Nov. 12, 2019! 




In Disney+’s “Lady and the Tramp,” a timeless re-telling of the 1955 animated classic, a pampered house dog and a tough but lovable stray embark on an unexpected adventure and, despite their differences, grow closer and come to understand the value of home. Life is good for Lady, an overachieving American Cocker Spaniel who resides in an upscale suburban neighborhood. Her owners, Jim Dear and Darling, spoil her daily and her neighbors, Jock, an outspoken Scottish Terrier and Trusty, a world-weary Bloodhound, are always within barking distance. But when a baby enters the picture, Lady is no longer the center of attention, and the arrival of cat-loving Aunt Sarah only complicates matters. Lady soon finds herself alone on the streets in an unwelcoming part of town. Fortunately, Tramp steps in, and the streetwise mongrel is quick to teach her the ways of the world. Before long, the prim and proper pure bred and the fast-talking mutt are partaking in moonlight strolls in the park and romantic spaghetti dinners by candlelight. Tramp savors the independence of a world without leashes or fences alongside his roguish friends Peg and Bull, but Lady misses the comfort and safety of a family, and soon both must decide where – and with whom – they belong. A heartwarming romantic adventure that seamlessly combines live action and photorealistic animation, “Lady and the Tramp” stars: Tessa Thompson as the voice of Lady and Justin Theroux as the voice of Tramp; Kiersey Clemons as Darling; Thomas Mann as Jim Dear; Janelle Monáe as the voice of Peg; Yvette Nicole Brown as Aunt Sarah; and Sam Elliott as the voice of Trusty. The film is directed by Charlie Bean from a screenplay by Andrew Bujalski and Kari Granlund, and is produced by Brigham Taylor, p.g.a., with Diane L. Sabatini serving as executive producer.


“Lady and the Tramp” premieres on November 12, 2019, streaming only on Disney+.

WestJet Stands Out from the Herd in Latest Advertising Campaign

It reaffirms the airline's continued commitment to making air travel something its guests not only enjoy but look forward to.

Created in partnership with Rethink, the campaign consists of a comprehensive digital and out-of-home presence that will run from coast-to-coast, launching on October 21, the night of Canada's federal election and carrying throughout the holidays.

Have you tried Canada Dry Cranberry Ginger Ale? It is made from real ginger. I love the great flavours with a hint of cranberry for an extra berry, fruity taste. Canada Dry Cranberry Ginger Ale is a premium ginger ale that is crisp, clean and refreshing. Its less sweet distinctive cranberry/ginger flavour quenches your thirst.  You'll love it too!

It is available for a limited time only. It's an ideal for holiday entertaining and mixers this holiday season.



Available in original and diet.

Disney-Pixar's “TOY STORY 4” DVD Review & Giveaway


Just when you thought the 3rd sequel was the final, Pixar announces Toy Story 4 about 9 years later. I was nervous about the storyline. It actually turned out quite brilliant!

The following review may contain spoilers. If you haven't seen the film yet, you can skip this post to the end for the giveaway or read at your own risk.

So, the toys are now passed down to from Andy to a little girl named Bonnie. It was Bonnie's first day of Kindergarten. Woody decides to keep an eye on her and sneaks into her backpack. Bonnie was nervous and a little uncomfortable in a new environment at first. She tries to make a new friend but she was ignored. While Bonnie is distracted, Woody starts tossing random items like a plastic fork, pipecleaners, popsicle sticks and crafty scraps on the table by Bonnie. Bonnie notices the supplies and creates "Forky".

The film continues when Woody helps Forky to realize his identity and his importance to Bonnie. The family goes on a road trip and somehow Forky gets lost behind. Woody was destined to go out and bring him back.

Along the way while trying to locate the family’s camper, the toys encounter enemies, reunite with old friends, made new friends and save themselves from the villain. Gabby Gabby, the villain, is a doll with a broken voice box. She wants to go after Woody to replace hers. In the end, she just wanted to be played with and Woody helps Gabby Gabby get noticed by a lost and scared little girl at the carnival.

Book Review: Nutritional Healing with Chinese Medicine

East meets West in the kitchen as you discover the nourishing treasure of Chinese medicine.


Food is our most powerful medicine. In this book, "Nutritional Healing with Chinese Medicine", it teaches us how to apply the ancient wisdom and traditions of Chinese medicine to food. You'll be introduced to a new way of thinking about yourself and you will learn what you need to eat to achieve balance and ultimately improve your health.

Eating is something we must do to survive and thrive. But, eating is also about togetherness, connection to ourselves, others and nature around use, as well as about culture and pleasure.

Eating is a sensorial experience and in this book, Ellen Goldsmith, licensed Acupuncturist, Chinese medicine practitioner and educator, and Maya Klein, recipe developer and culinary expert, have created a delicious journey through the seasons and suggested seasonal menus as well a complete section on over 30 condiments and recipes for everything from post-partum to post-surgery to help rebuild vitality.

There is an entire body of knowledge about food and healing that has been well-recorded in China for over 2500 years and embedded in their everyday lives. A great many people have lost their connection to food as a source of healing and health. The wisdom shared in this book can be adapted across many cultures to help people reconnect to the fundamental source of their health: food. This is essentially a food therapy book embedded in the wisdom of East, translated for the West with brings pleasure to nourishment and healing for you and your family.

The 200+ enticing recipes, organized by season, help you easily put the theory of Chinese medicine into practice. You'll soon be on your way to utilizing the principles you've learned and applying them where they count most -- in your kitchen.

About the Authors:

Ellen Goldsmith, MSOM, L.Ac., Dip. C.H., is Co-founder of Pearl Natural Health, a naturopathic, acupuncture and Chinese medicine clinic in Portland, Oregon. She is a graduate of the National University of Natural Medicine’s College of Classical Chinese Medicine, with a Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine.

She has taught Chinese Dietetics and its application in practice for NUNM’s Classical Chinese medicine program for the past 14 years and is currently adjunct faculty for the Masters of Science of Nutrition program and the Undergraduate College. 

Maya Klein’s passion for food has brought her to recipe development and cooking instruction, a departure from her professional training as an economist. Her Japanese and Czech heritage are reflected in her flexibility and innovation; the wide difference between these cuisines has facilitated her stretch outside of conventional foodways. 

Maya's work includes recipe development and testing for commercial clients and for numerous cookbooks, including The Joy of Cooking and eight books as assistant to Alice Medrich. She is co-author with Alice Medrich of James Beard Award -- winner Flavor Flours.

Production Underway in South Carolina on Disney+ Original Film "SAFETY" Directed by Reginald Hudlin from Walt Disney Pictures


BURBANK, Calif. (September 13, 2019) — Production has begun on Walt Disney Pictures’ “Safety,” a drama inspired by the uplifting true story of former Clemson safety Ray McElrathbey, in South Carolina. The film, which is directed by Oscar® nominee Reginald Hudlin (“Django Unchained,” “Marshall”), written by Randy McKinnon (“Where the Water Runs”) and Nick Santora (“Scorpion,” “The Fugitive at Quibi”) and produced by Mark Ciardi (“Chappaquiddick,” “Invincible”), will stream exclusively on Disney+.

“Safety” is the empowering story of Ray McElrathbey, a young man facing a series of challenging circumstances, whose faith and persistence help him to triumph over repeated adversities and play football on scholarship at Clemson University, all while struggling to raise and care for his 11-year-old brother Fahmarr.

“This is a powerful script that touches everyone who reads it; and now we are assembling a cast of wonderful young actors who will bring Ray McElrathbey’s amazing true story to life on the screen,” says director Reginald Hudlin.

“Safety” will film on locations in both Clemson, South Carolina and Atlanta, Georgia before wrapping production in mid-November. The film starsJay Reeves (“All American”) as Ray; Thaddeus J. Mixson (“The Grind”) as Fahmarr; and Corinne Foxx (“47 Meters Down: Uncaged”) as Kaycee.
