Blog Update: Comments are now moderated


So lately I've been having a real problem with spam comments. I know you don't see it but that's cause I take care of it behind the scene. Just another duty of being a blog owner. Like most blogs I get my fair share of spam comments that I'm able to catch and delete. My readers never get to see it and can enjoy reading my blog and comments from other readers.

 photo spam_zps2a29b99c.jpg

However, lately the spam comments has been coming fast and furious. Lots more then usual. I'm not sure whats changed but it's way more then I can keep up with. Lots of spam comments have been getting through the spam filter and actually been posted to blog posts. Yikes!

I usually catch spam comment and delete them since I'm awake at like 3am....yes I check my blog at 3am...

But with my upcoming trip to L.A with Disney and ABC TV, and other fun things happening in the next few weeks, I doubt I can catch the spam comments on time anymore. Which sucks because I don't want my readers having to deal with spam comments on my awesome blog posts.

So what to do? Sad to say I now have to moderate comments. Yes moderate.

So dear readers don't panic if you leave a comment and don't see it right away like you use to. Your comment will be held for a bit until I can approve them.  Sorry to do this but the war with spam never ends. LOL

Hope you understand and keep commenting! Please know I read VERY comment and appreciate them so much!



The BIG HERO 6 Voice Cast & Characters #BigHero6 #BigHero6Event #ABCTVEvent


As we get close to my L.A. trip for Disney Big Hero 6 Movie & ABC TV Event, I wanted to share more about the voice cast behind BIG HERO 6. The voice cast includes some of my favorite actors!

The BIG HERO 6 Voice Cast and Characters
The BIG HERO 6 Voice Cast and Characters

Check out the voice cast and official character descriptions below.

HIRO HAMADA is voiced by RYAN POTTER

Robotics prodigy HIRO HAMADA is voiced by RYAN POTTER (“Supah Ninjas,” “Senior Project”), has the mind of a genius—and the heart of a 14-year-old: his state-of-the-art battle-bots dominate the underground bot fights held in the dark corners of San Fransokyo. Fortunately, big brother Tadashi redirects Hiro’s brilliance, inspiring him to put his brain to the test in a quest to gain admission to the San Fransokyo Institute of Technology. When a tragic event changes everything, Hiro turns to a robot named Baymax, and they form an unbreakable bond—and two-sixths of a band of high-tech heroes on a very important mission.

TADASHI HAMADA voice by DANIEL HENNEY

TADASHI HAMADA voice by DANIEL HENNEY (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) is a good guy. He just is. He actually developed, built and programmed a state-of-the-art nursebot—a Healthcare Companion named Baymax that will likely help millions worldwide. But it’s his role as big brother that makes Tadashi truly special. Every kid needs a guy like Tadashi looking out for him, and Hiro knows just how lucky he is to have him in his life.

BAYMAX is voiced by SCOTT ADSIT

The world’s most compassionate robot BAYMAX is voiced by SCOTT ADSIT (“30 Rock,” “St. Vincent”). The plus-sized inflatable robot’s job title is technically Healthcare Companion: With a simple scan, Baymax can detect vital stats, and given a patient’s level of pain, can treat nearly any ailment. Conceived and built by Tadashi Hamada, Baymax just might revolutionize the healthcare industry. But to the inventor’s kid brother Hiro, the nurturing, guileless bot turns out to be more than what he was built for—he’s a hero, and quite possibly Hiro’s closest friend. And after some deft reprogramming that includes a rocket fist, super strength and rocket thrusters that allow him to fly, Baymax becomes one of the “Big Hero 6.”

GO GO TOMAGO is voiced by JAMIE CHUNG

The aptly named GO GO TOMAGO is voiced by JAMIE CHUNG (“Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,” “Once Upon A Time,” “The Hangover Part II & Part III”) and knows what it takes to be fast. She’s tough, athletic and loyal to the bone, but not much of a conversationalist. Popping bubble gum and delivering well-placed sarcasm are totally her speed. The daredevil adrenaline junkie is at her best on wheels, and when Go Go joins forces with “Big Hero 6,” she rolls like never before, using maglev discs as wheels, shields and throwing weapons.

WASABI is voiced by DAMON WAYANS JR

WASABI is voiced by DAMON WAYANS JR. (“Let’s Be Cops,” “Happy Endings”) and is committed to precision. He’s super smart and just a touch neurotic, but the big and burly neatnik can’t help but join the cause when Hiro needs him most. As part of “Big Hero 6,” Wasabi amplifies his martial arts skills with jaw-dropping plasma blade weaponry. Sharp doesn’t even begin to describe this guy.

HONEY LEMON is voiced by GENESIS RODRIGUEZ

Chemistry whiz HONEY LEMON is voiced by GENESIS RODRIGUEZ (“Tusk” and “Run All Night”) Don’t let her glasses and funky fashion fool you: Honey may be as sweet as her namesake, but she has a fire in her belly and a can-do attitude that make her pretty much unstoppable. Her knowledge of alchemy proves powerful, too, when the effusive brainiac becomes part of the “Big Hero 6” and creates clever concoctions that when thrown, can get her team out of nearly any jam.

FRED voiced by T.J. MILLER

Fanboy FRED voiced by T.J. MILLER (HBO’s “Silicon Valley,” “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “How to Train Your Dragon 2”), comes off like a laid-back dude with no direction. But this sign-twirling, monster-loving, comic-book aficionado is sure to go places—when he’s good and ready. For example, Fred doesn’t hesitate to join “Big Hero 6,” and he has a lot of ideas for his super-hero skillset, too. His ferocious, fire-breathing alter ego comes complete with claws, integrated communications and a super bounce. But his sign-spinning may still come in handy.


Additional voice cast and official characters include:

  • MAYA RUDOLPH (TV’s “Saturday Night Live,” “Maya Rudolph Variety Show,” Bridesmaids”) provides the voice of AUNT CASS, who’s the overworked but always-supportive guardian of brothers Hiro and Tadashi. The owner of a popular San Fransokyo bakery and coffee shop, Aunt Cass is proud, ebullient and thinks the world of her two genius nephews. She’s always good for a laugh and ready with a hug, tirelessly there for support and a great home-cooked meal.
  • JAMES CROMWELL (“Murder in the First,” “L.A. Confidential”), voices PROFESSOR ROBERT CALLAGHAN who heads up the robotics program at the prestigious San Fransokyo Institute of Technology and is Tadashi’s professor and mentor. When Hiro visits the university for the first time, he is star-struck by the world-renowned roboticist—while Callaghan immediately sees the potential in the 14-year-old prodigy, encouraging him to put his brain to better use.
  • Pioneer entrepreneur and tech guru ALISTAIR KREI is voiced by ALAN TUDYK (“Tell,” “Welcome to Me,” “42”). San Fransokyo Institute of Technology’s most illustrious alum and owner of the biggest technology company in the world, Krei Tech, is always on the hunt for the next big thing. Krei attends the showcase at San Fransokyo Tech and is overwhelmingly impressed by Hiro’s ingenuity.
  • YOKAI is the silent masked man behind the terrible tragedy that strikes San Fransokyo, turning Hiro’s world upside down. As a result, Hiro transforms a group of nerds into a team of high-tech crime fighters—“Big Hero 6”—with one mission: Track down Yokai and bring him to justice.
Directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”), BIG HERO 6 hits theaters in 3D on November 7th, 2014

Planning My Breast Cancer Screening: Hanes Mammogram Monologues #HanesForGood


Every year during October I usually post information about Breast Cancer Awareness and highlight companies doing something special in support. This year I planned to do the same thing however things are not the same.

This year I turned 40 and spreading awareness about Breast Cancer became much more than just sharing information. The issue of Breast Cancer is now something personal because starting this year, it's recommended that I start screening for Breast Cancer by getting a mammogram.

While I've known for years this time was coming, now that it's actually here.... I'm so not prepared.

Planning My Breast Cancer Screening Hanes Mammogram Monologues

Note: This post is part of a compensated campaign on behalf of Hanes and the National Breast Cancer Foundation. However any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

Thankfully, I don’t have to start this new journey alone. I'm not sure how they knew (could it be my 40 and fabulous tweet?!), but Hanes reached out and invited me to be part of their "Mammogram Monologues" social campaign, an initiative designed to make women more comfortable with the mammogram exam process.

At first I wasn't sure I wanted to blog about this experience. It's my first time! Ugh. But after thinking it over, I felt Hanes and their offer was a right fit. Hanes is all about comfort and they hope their "Mammogram Monologues" will provide comfort to women who may be hesitant to receive a mammogram.

After all, how many other women having their first mammogram this year will feel as nervous as I do? I suspect quite a few. How much better if these women (and I) had someone who can walk with us through the new experience. Someone who can really share what the process is like?

And so I've joined Hanes to share my "Mammogram Monologues" during National Breast Cancer awareness month.

Planning My Breast Cancer Screening with Hanes and National Breast Cancer Foundation

Not only has Hanes launched their "Mammogram Monologues", they've also teamed up with the National Breast Cancer Foundation [NBCF] to help generate awareness among women about the importance of receiving mammograms. As a part of this effort, Hanes will be donating $50,000 to the NBCF in an effort to fund research and early detection screenings.

Planning My Breast Cancer Screening with Hanes and National Breast Cancer Foundation

The NBCF provides free mammograms for women who could not otherwise afford them and supports early detection research programs in leading medical facilities across the country. This month I will receive my first mammogram at a NBCF center. I'm excited to share my experience with other women who need encouragement getting their mammogram, whether their turning 40 this year or a few years ago.

A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle at Six Flags Trick or Treat Trail for Kids #TMNT #SixFlags #FrightFest


We recently visited Six Flags so I could interview chefs Josh Capon and Tony Luke Jr., hosts of Spike TV’s Frankenfoods. After the interview we were able to enjoyed the park, the rides and activities.

Six Flags Kids Trick or Treat Trail 2014

Note: I was invited as media to this event by Pepto-Bismol, who also provided tickets to Six Flags. No other compensation was received. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

Six Flags Kids Trick or Treat Trail 2014
Six Flags Kids Trick or Treat Trail 2014

Since this month is all about Halloween, Six Flags had a trick and treat trail for the kids to enjoy while visiting the park. My son (and I) had a BLAST walking the trail and meeting all the characters.

Six Flags Kids Trick or Treat Trail 2014
Six Flags Kids Trick or Treat Trail 2014

I liked that walking the trail was more fun then scary. Some kids (and adults) don't like the scary part of this season but enjoy some of the activities. My son and I are not fans of the scary trick parts but we do enjoy the treat parts.

Six Flags Kids Trick or Treat Trail 2014

As I walked the Six Flags Trick or Treat Trail, I watched my son get hugged by some of our favorite cartoon characters. I thought that was a great Halloween treat. Getting the treat bag was just icing on the cake.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Costume

We received my son's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles "Leonardo" Costume from our friends at Nickelodeon to wear specifically for this event. My son loved his costume!

This TMNT costume included the "muscle" jumpsuit, a molded mask and detachable printed shell. The costume was easy to put on over my son clothing and wear comfortable for both trick or treating on the trail and running around Six Flags enjoying the rides.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Costume

One of my favorite features of this costume is that you can remove the shell. It velcroed on and off as needed. So when getting on rides we could take off, fold and put away and ride comfortably. After the ride, we re-attached the shell and continued. Very handy feature for a costume!

As you can see we had a great time trick or treating at Six Flags thanks to our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Costume. That's turtle power!

I'm Going to L.A. for Big Hero 6 Movie & ABC TV Event with Disney #BigHero6Event #ABCTVEvent


I've been holding a secret for the past few days that it's time to let out. In part because my secret is over 6 feet tall and it's hard to hide him. But also because I'll soon been on a plane to Los Angeles. I have been invited by Disney & ABC to Los Angeles for the Big Hero 6 and ABC TV event!

I'm Going to L.A. for Big Hero 6 Movie Red Carpet and ABC TV Event with Disney

Note: Thanks to Disney and ABC TV, who invited me on this all expense paid trip to Los Angeles for the Big Hero 6 Event and ABC TV Event. While I will share about the different events and activities during this trip, any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

Going to L.A. for Big Hero 6 Movie Red Carpet and ABC TV Event with Disney

During my trip I'll be very active on my social media accounts so follow along with the hashtags #BigHero6Event and #ABCTVEvent on my Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. To say that I'm excited is an understatement. I'm SO excited and I have many good reasons to be.

Big Hero 6

First I'll be walking the red carpet at the BIG HERO 6 (opening in theaters on 11/7) premiere and also attend a special press day at Walt Disney Animation Studios where I'll interview the filmmakers! I'll also attend a drawing demonstration with animators and get a chance to voice a character from the film in a recording booth!

Can I just tell you that I'm so loving the BIG HERO 6 characters and story. Yes Baymax, the plus-sized inflatable robot is VERY cool but it's the loving but humorous relationship he has with Hiro that made me a fan of this movie. You can see see some of this in the following trailer



As if that's not awesome enough, I'll also...

ABC's blackish

.....visit the Walt Disney Studio Lot for special preview screenings of episodes of ABC shows, like the new hit comedy “BLACK*ISH”. I'm really excited about this show and the chance to see the cast live. The show's theme about maintaining a cultural identity while also "assimilating" into another culture is something that I totally "get". Plus the cast and story lines are super funny.

If you haven't watch it yet, I recommend you check out the show on Wednesday nights at 9:30est/8:30cst


ABC's Dancing with Stars

.....attend a live taping of “DANCING WITH THE STARS” (Monday nights at 8/7c) at the glamorous ballroom set! Then I'll join in a live tweet up for the West coast airing of the show. I heard a special guest (or two!) might make an appearance. I'll be sure to tweet if they do!

ABC's Galavant

.....watch a “sneak peek” of ABC’s upcoming upcoming musical comedy “GALAVANT” The series follows the adventures of Galavant, a dashing hero who is determined to reclaim his reputation and his "Happily Ever After" by going after the evil King Richard (Timothy Omundson (Psych), who ruined it the moment he stole the love of Galavant's life, Madalena. The episodes will chronicle Galavant's journeys (and the twists and turns that go along with it) through musical numbers composed and written by Menken and Slater.

Check out this Galavant clip


ABC's Agent Carter

.....meet and interview Hayley Atwell, who plays AGENT CARTER in Marvel’s new action-packed series debuting in January 2015 during the season two mid-season break of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. My group will also interview the Executive Producers Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, touring the set and other super exciting Marvel/S.H.I.E.L.D. world stuff!

Check out this Agent Carter clip


As you can see it's going to be a busy but fun filled couple days while I'm in LA. I'll try not to miss anything so I can come back and share it ALL with you. See you in L.A. next week!
